So is it cool if Gnostic Christians join the alliance? Because, I have had a lot of flak with my fellow christian brothers and sisters; being called
a heretic and a sinner and a blasphemer. I just follow what Christ says, I meditate, read my bible, and Christ explains... The KJV bible got me into
meditation, meditation got me into philosophy, philosophy and the bible, got me into gnosticism, and now, I really do think, that from a gnostic,
platonic, or hermetic approach, Christianity, can be validated %110 scientifically and with all the physical and philisophical proof and tools one
requires to come to absolute gnosis, in a manner, that critical thinking atheists and agnostics do not and in actuality cannot refute.
In my earlier days, I tried to recruit people with Jesus, I had limited results. Now a days, I recruit people with Jesus's teachings and gnostic
understanding and concepts, spreading the WORD, or LOGOS(WWJD, not say hey, are you down with me? you dont want to go to hell do you?, but just teach
of the LOGOS or WORD of GOD. Jesus never taught out of fear, for it is obvious to the gnostic, that GOD is all there is to fear) which pull the
person out of their 3d illusion or egotistical biases enough to see gods ineffable brilliance. Point being, Ive been able to bring family and friends
to Christ through the gnostic philosophy, yet asking them if they had been saved etc etc only worked a fraction of the time and I assume it was
with those who already were ready to surrender.
I love faith, but I don't think it is required to know god intimately the way you believe you are to know god correctly whatever you may think that
means. Sure you have to have faith in the first place that something has truth to it to investigate it to the point of surrender and then
understanding, I think reality itself is a faith based creation that has systems within it that have very precise nearly tangible laws. Laws that
inevitably guide you to Christ and then Christ source, or the FATHER GOD, at which point you are not boastful of such revelation, but merely
kind and gentle in your approach to help others to see and hear.
I really think that a lot of my Christian brothers and sisters have been duped by political agenda's. Using faith to manipulate spiritual followers,
faith has its place in spirituality and rationality, just not in the manner it is implemented which engenders the same reactions in people to their
contemporary leaders. Long ago, Christianity was not a purely faith based religion, Jesus was there and his teachings were proof and there was a
method of knowing GOD, they did not have to ask you to have faith back then, because spirituality was and is a science and faith has a very important
role, its just been slightly tweaked not enough for all to notice, but just enough for those who don't to be manipulated by it.
Why any Christian would refute an interpretation of Christianity that can beyond any scientific or philisophical doubt convince an atheist to accept
Christ as their lord and savior, boggles my mind, then again, it does not, because many have been blinded by group mentality, and the misuse of faith,
a great deception indeed.
If you are wondering how I came to find gnostic interpretation and practice, it was that my pastor had told me not everything can be explained, which
directly contradicted a dream I had, where Jesus was there,(the dream that brought me to church in the first place) explaining to me, that the answers
are all available, but one must search far and wide within perception and the material of mens words spoken in confused language in order to truly see
or hear that the truth is of unconfused tongue, he presented me with an example, which was more than just words, it was experience as well, truly
profound. I didnt really understand the dream until the pastor said that, then I prayed, I thought to myself, what would jesus do, and I prayed hard,
and I kept praying and reading my bible, then it occurred to me, that maybe its the English language that is making things screwy for US christians,
so I did a little research on some of the discrepancies of translation/transliteration, and found this term LOGOS, which means reason, or ratio, it is
what WORD originally was, it is a scientific term. This deeply intrigued me, so I did a little more research, and praying every day for Jesus to
bring the right information into my life so I could one day truly understand. Shortly after, I was given a book, it was called Jesus Christ Sun of
God, it was about ancient cosmology and early christian symbolism, profound to say the least. It confirmed my faith and belief in Jesus so much, I
could now walk with unshakable faith based on mathematical facts and allegory for the entire universe. Prayers and dreams, prayers and dreams, that
lead me mysteriously to the Nag Hammadi, besides all of the great gnosis it contains, I thought was an awesomely priceless discovery in its self,
being a great confirmation and debate settler for Christianity. So I thought.
All in all, what it boils down to, is that I asked Jesus to show me, and through the universes beautiful plethora of synchronicity and
direct, erhm, I guess visionary experience and dream, he did, and there is no doubt that what I have found is one view of the truth, because it has
transformed me into a deeply compassionate person who practices unconditional forgiveness and love, as well as showing me to a perception that allows
me to see the 3rd dimension from a dimension above in meditation and now prayer. Its real, because it feels more real than the 3d, god explains
things in a multi faceted way, its almost like god gives you some sort of ability to comprehend a million perceptions at once in order to convey some
deeply profound truism about reality and the nature of it all. Its not like you mistake meeting god, its one of those things that makes more sense
than reality itself, yet is almost incomprehensible to a normal mundane human perspective, but thats the thing, WE AIN'T HUMAN! we are SOULS.
This is not just out of faith, faith plays a major role, but not in the contemporary sense, well, kinda, its tricky. I understand that many people
have been transformed in the same way by the spirit within other denominations that people would consider fundamentalist, and I believe that is
because GOD is so great and so GOOD, that the mere sincere unadulterated intent to know GOD and the faith alone, will inevitably lead to one
personally knowing GOD very VERY intimately.
All Im saying is, there is a denomination, that if it were to become public knowledge, could seriously, rationally, convert the entire planet. The
gnostic denomination is awesome, because it requires that you ask as many of the hardest questions as possible, it is enlightenment through gnosis,
and it is very possible.
PS, I was baptized, and accepted JC as my lord and savior before any of this went down, so now I wonder, did I come to these happenings because I was
baptized and accepted the lord, or is it just because I was curious, and found a path that made perfect scientific sense? Is there even a difference,
and does it even matter? I dont think there is, and I dont think it does. The lord works in mysterious ways. Amen. Praise Jesus!
So do heretics still seem so evil?
