Despite the fact that there are at least dozens of parallels between the canonical Gospels and the Gospel of Thomas, the Christian
religious ‘authorities’ have, nevertheless, insisted that the Gospel of Thomas can only be considered as an heretical
On what basis? There is no basis.
For what reasons? There are no reasons.
Other than, that is, their own self-centeredness, arrogance and ambition; and their lust for wealth and power…
And to preserve both the Christian religious establishment and the high esteem in which they are held by their hapless followers.
In other words, although there are no clearly specified doctrines in the Gospel of Thomas which specifically contradict the doctrines of
Christian theology; there are, however, too many Sayings in the Gospel of Thomas which the Christian theologians are simply and categorically
incapable of either understanding or explaining at all. (And, predictably, the “dragon” media has made quite certain to do everything that it can
possibly do to ensure that the dumber-than-a-box-of-rocks cluelessness of the Jewish and Christian religious ‘authorities’ about both the
Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi Codices has never been made known—and never will be made known—to the general public; so as to
preserve, of course, the economic and other self-interests of these Jewish and Christian religious ‘authorities’.)
In other words, if the Gospel of Thomas were ever considered to be the authentic words of Jesus himself and an authentic commentary on the
Teaching of Jesus, the Christian religious ‘authorities’ would then be required to explain things of which they have no Knowledge whatsoever;
which would go a long way toward demonstrating that what the Christian religious ‘authorities’ consider to be the Teaching of Jesus is, instead,
nothing more than an utterly bizarre concoction or mishmash—a syncretistic witch’s brew—consisting of the Egyptian-Pharisaical doctrine of the
physical raising of a dead body from the grave, a smattering of Roman idolatry, and many of the doctrines of Greek, metaphysical philosophy and other
Whose specific purpose is, instead, to contradict and turn upside down the Teaching of Jesus in the pursuit of wealth and power.
The ultimate consequence of which, however, intentionally or not, will be the near-annihilation of human civilization in a generalized warfare in the
Middle East between Judaeo-Christianity, Inc. and Islamism, Inc.
(In other words, in order to understand the theological context for the fulfillment of the horrific Prophecies of the coming “time of trouble”
(the Book of Daniel 12:1), one need look no further than the Dead Sea Scrolls conspiracy and the Nag Hammadi Codices conspiracy.)
And chief among those Sayings in the Gospel of Thomas which clearly demonstrate that the Christian theologians have no real Knowledge of the
Teaching of Jesus at all—and, thus, are guilty of, at least, ‘theft by deception’—are the following:
1) Saying #11: “On the day when you were one you became two. But when you become two what will you do?”;
which is echoed in Saying #72:
“He turned to his disciples and said to them ‘I am not a divider, am I?’”
Commentary: Every esoteric Teaching of either the Eastern or the Western traditions is intensely concerned with the origin of the duality; since the
duality is understood as being the origin of division, evil, conflict, violence and bloodshed.
What Jesus is referring to in this Saying is the differentiation of the dualistic, ‘fallen’, space-time consciousness of the “self” and the
‘thinker’ from the non-dualistic, non-spatial, non-temporal consciousness Created ‘by and in the image of God’ (Genesis 1:27) by means
of the ‘movement’ of self-reflection (although J. Krishnamurti, for example, considers the duality as originating in the thought and thoughts of
the ‘thinker’); which is symbolized as the “great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had deceived all the
2) Saying #13: “Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Compare me to someone and tell me who I am like.’
Simon Peter said to him, ‘You are like a righteous angel.’
Matthew said to him, ‘You are like a wise philosopher’.
Thomas said to him, ‘Master, my mouth is wholly incapable of saying whom you are like.’
Jesus said, ‘I am not your master. Because you have drunk, you have become intoxicated from the bubbling spring which I have measured out.’
And he took him and withdrew and told him three things. When Thomas returned to his companions, they asked him, ‘What did Jesus say to you?’
Thomas said to them, ‘If I tell you one of the things which he told me, you will pick up stones and throw them at me; a fire will come out of those
stones and burn you up.’”
Commentary: First of all, if the Christian religious ‘authorities’ had any understanding of the Teaching of Jesus at all, they would be
able to deduce the ‘three things’ that Jesus told to Thomas:
The specific issue that Jesus is addressing here is the propensity of the consciousness of the ‘thinker’ to understand Truth as being equivalent
to the thoughts of the ‘thinker’. Thus, Thomas ‘passes the test’ by acknowledging that that the thoughts of the ‘thinker’ are not in any
way adequate to the conveying of Truth. And, because he passes this test, he is deserving of additional Teaching which neither Peter nor Matthew
And the reply of Thomas addresses the entire issue of the origin of the thoughts of the ‘thinker’:
The thoughts of the ‘thinker’ originate in the ‘fire’ of fear and desire; that is the fear of death, the fear for the loss of pleasure, and
the desire for pleasure; these thoughts being symbolized in Genesis 3 by the “fig leaves” worn by Adam and Eve to preserve the “tree of
the knowledge of good and evil’ ‘naked’ “selves”; but can also be symbolized as ‘rocks’ which are ‘thrown’ by the consciousness of
the ‘thinker’ in its efforts to contradict and destroy the Truth. And, with the direct confrontation between Truth and the thoughts of the
‘thinker’, the thoughts of the ‘thinker’ are time-reversed to their origin in desire and fear; as is clearly expressed in the opening
passages of the Second Meditation of Descartes: “I feel as though, all of a sudden, I have fallen into deep water.”
So, the ‘three things’ that Jesus said to Thomas were as follows:
1) there is an intense conflict between Truth and thought;
2) thoughts are ‘stones’ which originate in the ‘fire’ of fear and desire; and,
3) when those thoughts revert to the ‘fire’ of fear and desire in the confrontation with the Truth, they completely consume the consciousness of
3) Saying #37: “His disciples said, ‘When will you become revealed to us and when shall we see you?’
Jesus said, ‘When you disrobe without being ashamed and take up your garments and place them under your feet like little children and tread on them,
then you will see the son of the Living One, and you will not be afraid.’”
Commentary: Clearly, Jesus is not suggesting that people no longer wear clothes. What he is saying here is an echo of the symbolism in Genesis
3 in which the “fig leaves” are to be understood as the thought and the thoughts of the ‘thinker’, which originate in fear. (As J.
Krishnamurti has said “Thought is fear.”) In other words, the experience of the Vision of the “Son of man” occurs against the
background of the annihilation of the thoughts of the ‘thinker’ originating in fear. And, thus, the consciousness Created ‘by and in the image
of God’ exists prior to both the “self” and thought.
4) Saying #84: “Jesus said, ‘When you see your likeness, you rejoice. But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which
neither die nor become manifest, how much will you have to bear!’”.
Commentary: The “likeness” or the ‘image’ that Jesus is referring to at the beginning of this Saying is the “likeness” or ‘image’ of
the ‘fallen’ consciousness, which consists of an image of a “self” which exists in ‘space’ (originating in the ‘movement’ of
self-reflection); an image which is extended in ‘time’ by the postulation of the thought of the ‘thinker’, the ‘mind’, the ‘soul’,
etc. “…your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest” refers to the violent and chaotic images and
archetypes of the ‘unconscious’, the experience of which is referred to as the “individuation process” in Jungian and archetypal psychology
(that is, “how much you will have to bear!”).
