Priests and prophets stagger from beer and are befuddled with wine; they reel from beer, they stagger when seeing visions, they stumble when rendering decisions. All the tables are covered with vomit and there is not a spot without filth.
“Who is it he is trying to teach? To whom is he explaining his message? To children weaned from their milk, to those just taken from the breast? For it is: Do this, do that, a rule for this, a rule for that[a]; a little here, a little there.”
Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers
who rule this people in Jerusalem.
You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.”
Hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie, and water will overflow your hiding place.
Your covenant with death will be annulled;
your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand.
Listen and hear my voice; pay attention and hear what I say. When a farmer plows for planting, does he plow continually? Does he keep on breaking up and working the soil?
When he has leveled the surface,
does he not sow caraway and scatter cumin?...
Does he not plant wheat in its place,[c]
barley in its plot,[d]
and spelt in its field?
His God instructs him
and teaches him the right way.
38. I speak that which I have seen with my Father:
and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
39. They answered and said unto him,
Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them,
If ye were Abraham's children,
ye would do the works of Abraham.
40. But now ye seek to kill me,
a man that hath told you the truth,
which I have heard of God:
this did not Abraham.
41. ”Ye do the Works of your father.”
Then said they to him,
We be not born of fornication;
we have one Father, even God.
42. Jesus said unto them,
If God were your Father,
ye would love me:
for I proceeded forth
and came from God;
neither came I of myself,
but he sent me.
43. Why do ye not understand my speech?
even because ye cannot hear my word.
44. Ye are of your father the devil,
and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning,
and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie,
he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar,
and the father of it.
45. And because I tell you the truth,
ye believe me not.
46. Which of you convinceth me of sin?
And if I say the truth,
why do ye not believe me?
47. He that is of God heareth God's words:
ye therefore hear them not,
because ye are not of God.
48. Then answered the Jews,
and said unto him,
Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan,
and hast a devil?
49. Jesus answered,
I have not a devil;
but I honour my Father,
and ye do dishonour me.
50. And I seek not mine own glory:
there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
51. Verily, verily, I say unto you,
If a man keep my saying,
he shall never see death.
52. Then said the Jews unto him,
Now we know that thou hast a devil.
Abraham is dead, and the prophets;
and thou sayest,
If a man keep my saying,
he shall never taste of death.
53. Art thou greater than our father Abraham,
which is dead? And the prophets are dead:
whom makest thou thyself?
54. Jesus answered,
If I honour myself, my honour is nothing:
it is my Father that honoureth me;
of whom ye say, that he is your God:
55. Yet ye have not known him;
but I know him: and if I should say,
I know him not,
I shall be a liar like unto you:
but I know him, and keep his saying.
56. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day:
and he saw it, and was glad.
57. Then said the Jews unto him,
Thou art not yet fifty years old,
and hast thou seen Abraham?
58. Jesus said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Before Abraham was, I am.
59. Then took they up stones to cast at him:
but Jesus hid himself,
and went out of the temple,
going through the midst of them,
and so passed by.
3. ALL things were made through Him,
and without Him,
Nothing was made,
that was made
27. "But I say to you who hear:
LOVE your enemies,
do good to those who hate you,
28. Bless those who curse you,
and pray for those
who spitefully use you.
32. But if you LOVE those
who Love you,
what thank have ye?
for sinners also Love those
who Love them.
But I can say the sayings in the writing ("The Gospel of Thomas") are True and Correct
Most Synagogue Libraries, have copies of this text.My Copy was obtained from a Synagogue....
Even "The Gospel According to Matthew was supposedly NOT written by Matthew either, neither was "The Gospel According to Mark" written by Mark...
So what are you implying ???
ALL means ALL, and NOT just Some....
If we blame anyone at all.... We blame GOD.
What you see in the World is "The Workings of The Father Made Manifest".
If we Curse others We Curse GOD...
If we LOVE others we will NOT Blame others, Gov. etc for what is happening....
