You are agnostic. Without knowledge. Means simply, "I do not know". It's perfectly fine place to be, it just means you are "poor in
spirit". Having not yet known the truth.
I'm not a christian, but I do agree with Jesus 100% and I know what he says is true. It is about understanding, not about acceptance. It's not
"Jesus" the physical man/idol that is important, it is what he does and says that matters. I'm not a christian because they believe he dies and
they are saved by his death. They treat him as a sacrifice and in "his blood" they are saved. I believe it is in his life example and
understanding that one is saved, and that the christian version of things are "satanic" as it is the sacrifice of truth so that the lie may live.
But here's the skinny.
There are 2 sides to these things. There is the spirit and there is the flesh. In more modern language, there is consciousness and there is the
Consciousness is what is called a "soul". It is that which gives makes you an "observer" of the universe. That bit that gives you the feeling
of "I am". It is because of this we are able to have understanding. Consciousness creates logic. We get the ability of choice and free will
The other side of things is the physical/creation. It is based on logic/action reaction. If this happens, then this happens, etc. All the
physical is based on this, our bodies work in this way and so forth. Thus, our bodies come from the dust of the earth, our souls come from the
So, lets go through the events in genesis. In the beginning there was the word. What does that mean? It means logic. Programs are built on
words and logic. Open up a program and you will see lots of words and logic going on. It "creates" the programs we use. Consciousness creates
logic. Logic = laws. So, this "word" made this creation.
Now, lets liken this to creating a video game. If there is nobody their to view the video game, then it's just a bunch of patterns repeating over
and over. The game doesn't come to "life" until it is observed by consciousness.
Thus, the spirit of god fills creation and brings it to life.
It is the father within you that gives you free will, feeling, understanding, an observer and so forth. In the end, there is only 1 true observer of
all things. That is the father. We are in the son perspective, 1 individual experience and consciousness. A soul is the individual consciousness
within the bigger consciousness. If you lose your soul, then you lose your individuality, you are absorbed by the father(all things of the father
return to the father).
If you would like to read more about father and son perspective, follow the 2 posts below. I'm going to skip over that part for this.
In the bible, it is said - you are hated because you are not of this world. What does that mean? Well this world works in action and reaction.
Because of that it means it can be controlled. If you put the right kind of action into something, we can expect a certain reaction and it will
happen over and over. Rockets work off this principle. Put the right amount of fuel and thrust, and you can control where it goes. It is of this
creation, it is of "this world".
You are the soul/consciousness. You do not follow those things, and thus you are not so easily controlled. So you are hated for your free will and
freedom. If that rocket had free will and choice, who knows where it would end up. Not useful for those looking for control. So what does it mean
to sell your soul? It means to become a puppet. To serve and do things for some kind of physical compensation. Politicians are the easy example
in most cases. They do what they are told in return for being treated as they are.
What they try to do is keep blind, keep the choices reduced with manipulation. When the people accept what they are told and are manipulated, then
you can introduce certain actions and get the reactions you want out of people. The most common used thing is fear. Attack someone, you can expect
them to support an attack. Iraq is a prime example. So that is why/how they deceive people. They also keep the above hidden, so people won't
realize what they really are and so forth.
For information on how to recognize "wolves in sheeps clothing" I made a thread about it.
Sheeps clothing = symbolism and idols.
So, lets kind of go back to the "garden" again. It says we took from the tree of knowledge, to know both good and evil. This means we were sent
to learn about good and evil. We have evil within us and were capable of it, so we were removed from it to protect the "tree of life".
If you steal, then it is impossible for you to live in a society without theft. If you murder, can't live in a society without murder. etc.
Thus, in order to protect all the life that was not evil, we were quarantined on this planet to learn the difference between good and evil.
The commandments were given, and if man followed those commandments and choose "wisdom" over the physical and material things, then they would no
longer steal, murder and so forth. As such, they would be allowed to ascend back into that perfect society without the evil. However, men for
the most part did not understand, they thought because the wagers of sin was death, it was their job to kill people. They were doing the "Lords
work" to kill the man who killed. But they were just hypocrites. They themselves are breaking a commandment by killing. Enter Jesus. Jesus
is the example on how to follow the commandments properly in order to do what is needed to ascend back into a heavenly society. Thus, by following
his example and doing as he says and does, you are walking the path. How the path works is in those 2 posts about father and son relationship.
So, back to the deception and control of this world. They use fear and manipulate people. And in doing so, they get the people to do things which
are against the path and understanding. They use fear of death and keeping people blind to the fact they are a soul and death is not real, just the
body dies. And out of that fear, people do "reactions" that lead them down the broad path of destruction. They war and do all things of
destruction. If people instead looked at the actions being done, rather than feeling they are justified in their actions to try and "save
themselves" out of fear then they would see the path they are walking is not correct. Thus we have the mass confusion and destruction of today.
And will continue until people gain understanding.
There is most certainly good and evil. Evil is that which does things that are bad, and imposes on the free will of another. All of "god's
laws" are based on this understanding, it is the golden rule and the understanding of Jesus.
But it's not all doom and gloom. You only need to deceive good people. If they weren't good people at heart, then you wouldn't need to deceive
them into doing bad things, they would want to do them. So only the "wicked" need worry really, as they are the ones who know the truth, but
works against it and to blind/deceive people. Once the truth comes to those who are blind, then they will see for themselves and understand it.
Then they will no longer follow and do those things. Thus, you they and you are just poor in spirit.
I tell you these things, but I am not an authority. You shouldn't accept what I say as truth. These are things you must understand for yourself. I
can not give you that understanding. I can express it in my own way, as I have here, but you must seek and find your own understanding. If you
accept, then you will not understand. There is only 1 true teacher, and only 1 that can give you that understanding, you just have to ask for it.
The understanding will come to you and it won't be from a man. You will just suddenly understand.
