Try a "red letter" edition.
What I mean by that is...
before you read the bible, realize that between the "old testament" and the "new testament", the "truth" is "crucified".
The old testament is a nail in the hand of the truth,
the new testament is a nail in the other hand.
The words of each collection of documents form nails which kill "the Word".
The net effect is that the truth is mangled beyond recognition.
The truth bleeds through the confusing words that would nail it down to the ground.
In order to see the truth, you must read between the lines.
Read what bleeds through.
Here are a few authentic sayings that bleed through:
The parable of the prodigal son, not including the addition of a jealous brother at the end of the story. That was added, and not of Jesus. [This is
the true story of genesis, existence, and exodus from the world. The cross and resurrection is the same story, told in parody].
"Call no man father" [means, do not trace ones genesis back to man's maker. Place no truth in human geneology. It is a *lie* of the devil, man's
"A house divided against itself cannot stand" [the world is the effect of a mental conflict of Christ-sized - cosmic - proportions. The conflict
cannot last forever, so, the world will "pass away"...ie. 'cannot stand'. This describes a kind of divine schizophrenia. Truth on one side, lies
on the other. Heaven and hell (the world) in the same mind...cannot stand. ].
Jesus also said that the world is like a house built on sand. He is talking about the foundation of the world, built on many lies.
The foundation of the world is built on the destruction of the truth.
In revelations it talks about the truth as "slain before the foundations of the world". So, the world is a lie from beginning to end. The biblical
story of genesis is propaganda in a war against the truth. Truth is always the first casualty of war. Such is the world.
"Whatsoever you do to the least of these my brethren, you do to me". [This is a oneness statement that shows how to forgive. Forgiveness sees past
the masks of bodyhood, and overlooks the actions of personhood. None of it is true. What is true is what is hidden by such masks: Christ, the Truth,
The oneness statements in the later part of the gospel of John.
*We are one, just as he is one with the Father. He is in the Father and the Father is in him. Likewise, we are in the Father and the Father is in us.
"The Kingdom of God is within you". [This obliterates the idea that anyone can be a body or a person. ]
"In Christ, there is no male of female, no Jew or Greek, no slave or free" [there are no persons in Christ. There is only Christ, and nothing but
"Upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it". [talking about the mutual recognition of the "Son of
God" in each other.]
Jesus, breaking a loaf of bread, gave it to his desciples to eat, telling them that it symbolized his body. [he is refering to Christ, the
Truth...the totality of Reality...the One...which is broken as the *many* live off of its broken oneness. The "Lords" supper is a reminder that as
the many live, the One dies. Therefore, the many must die, that the One may live. The many is expressed by bodyhood/personhood. This is the "life"
that each of the many must lay down, if they are to truly live as their truth, the Christ].
"Do not hide your light under a bushel" [talking about the fact that the Kingdom of God is within, and it is like true Light. The Light is hidden
by the universe, and further hidden by bodies. Beyond bodies is Christ, the truth Light of the world. Our beliefs/unbeliefs about Christ hides the
In the gospel of John we find the definition of "sin", "righteousness" and "judgment".
Sin = unbelief in Christ.
Righteousness = return to *Our Father*.
Judgement = "prince of this world" does not exist, and is meaningless.
Sin is not the result of behavior. Behavior is the result of beliefs. Unbelief in Christ is what makes the world, its images, and the behavior of
the images. The whole world is a kind of unbelief in Christ, so the whole world is a "sin". Sin is a big lie. Truth takes away sin by asserting
the truth where sin is thought to be the truth instead. All "bad" behavior stems from an unbelief in Christ, which goes way back to before the
foundations of the world. The "prodigal son" is the *name* of what does not belief in Christ. The prodigal son denies it is the Son of God. The
net effect is that the prodigal son becomes the "son of man". This is why Jesus says, "call no man father". That is to deny true Sonship as does
the prodigal son. The prodigal son is responsible for the making of the world. Another name for the prodigal son is "Adam". We all derive our
beliefs from the prodigal son. This is why we are "born in sin".
Elsewhere it is said, "A freind of the world is an enemy of God". [people think that "the world" is defined as bad behavior. That attitude
merely perpetuates a lie. The world is all that appears to be separated, differentiated, different, unique, and special. This includes everything
with a form, anything ranked among a heirarchy, anything less than the totality, or anything within "time". Time itself is a manifestation of
unbelief in eternity, which is the domain of Christ, for Christ is eternal].
Righteousness is simply to go home. There is no other right thing to do when it is understood that the whole world is the prodigal son, away from
home! That is why "righteousness" is defined as to return to the Father.
Judgement is upon the "prince of this world". The judgement is this: the prince of this world does not exist, so its works do not exist, so
everything it ever made was a lie, including men and their actions. These were made to deny God, and prove that God could be changed. And if God
could be changed, God could kill and be killed. Since the world does not exist, sin is a lie. The truth is still true, and there is nothing but
innocence as the truth. In this way, the truth takes away the sins of the world.
Do you need more biblical confirmation?
