Is your concept of Jesus, God, or Christ a religious delusion?
Do you think by simply professing the name of Jesus and by believing God raised Him from the dead that you are saved?
Many people believe that and say they love God, while in their hearts they still hate their brothers. So what's the problem?
To escape religious dogma and all the possible images and delusions of the mind, one must first understand there are two possible states of Life:
1. The first state is the Natural (the “Self” life).
In this state a person lives according to the Spirit of this world. Take any man in his natural state; everything he does from the time of his birth
is from a want for something. Self, must Covet, because it is a desire proceeding from want; Self must Envy, because it is a desire turned to its
self; Self must assume and arrogate, because Pride works as a desire to exalt one’s self over others.
While man lives the Self life, his Covetousness, Envy, and Pride may take on the appearance of some good, may offer moments of peace, may provide some
gratifications, but they can never be fully satisfied, and whenever these desires are contradicted, challenged, humiliated, offended, etc., a fourth
expression of vengeful anger breaks forth.
William Law wrote:
“While man is under the power of nature, governed only by his worldly wisdom, his life, no matter how old he might be, is still quite childish.
That is because everything about Him serves only to awaken childish thoughts and pursuits in Him:
All that He sees and hears;
All that He desires and fears;
All that He likes and all that He dislikes;
All that He has and that He has not;
All that He gets and all that He loses;
Servers only to carry Him from one fiction of Evil, to another fiction of Good;
From one vanity of peace, to another vanity of trouble”.
2. The second state is God manifested in Nature (the “Spiritual” life).
In this state a person renounces Self and the Spirit of this World, and desires to Live by the Spirit of God. Living by the Spirit is plain and
simple, it transcends all religions, is always near, is free from all deceptions, and always results in success. It is a way of living that is
diametrically opposed to the Self life. It is the way of Patience, Meekness, Humility, and Love for God and mankind. Therein lies the only way to
overcome Self and all the images and delusions of one's mind concerning Jesus, Christ, and God.
Some will ask, what about Jesus?
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus was the Divine Nature incarnate. He is now the risen Christ, seated at the right hand of the Father. When
we grasp exactly what the Divine Nature and Character of Christ and God is, and seek those elements to be the ground for our own character, then we
are truly following the one true Son of God, worshiping Him and placing our faith in Him.
It takes more than simply knowing or professing the name of Jesus to be saved. Cereal killers profess Jesus as being the Son of God, so where does
that leave us? Even the Demons believe in God and shudder. But in
Humility, Meekness, Patience and Love for God and humanity is the Divine Nature of Christ, and it is in those elements that we find our spiritual
rebirth, forgiveness, redemption, salvation, illumination, enlightenment, transformation, etc. By the simple turning of the will, with as little faith
as a mustard seed, to those Divine Virtues of Christ, and desiring with all your heart to be governed by them, you are turning from all that you are
from the Fall of Adam, to all that God is and desires of us. In this there is no fault, false religion, or false Christ, and no one can argue
successfully against it, nor deny you of it.
If this is the Christ that you follow, you will fully escape all the religious delusions that are in the world, and all the possible delusions of your
