It would be impossible for anyone to bully a person into understanding this. You either seek or you ignore. One brings truth and freedom. One brings
death and destruction by ignorance.
So threats of destruction and death is not a form of bullying?.
If you are referring to God, then he is speaking of a power he possesses. Unless we are seen as holy in the eyes of God, we will be considered
darkness to be removed. The ONLY way we can be seen as an image that matches God is if we are included in the image of the Son. When God sees His
Son, he sees us by that reflection of perfection. We must rise with the Son and be raised as a Child of God, or we choose a path and do it on our
own. This is salvation by works and this path will fail.
New International Version (NIV)
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Why did he say it this way? The Way was derived from Eastern thinking and the eight fold path of righteousness.

By saying he was the truth, he was showing .the only philosophy of virtue and life that was necessary to fulfill the law is love. All of Plato and
Socrates can be summed up by love. They reasoned to the root of truth, which is love for others.
By saying he was life, he was showing that no life can exist apart from being IN the image of the first born.
1 Colossians 1: 15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven
and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He
is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
YES. God is all three. Christ is the Image that is our connecting point to God. God is outside the light, yet is the light. Light is particle and
wave, yet has Spirit (Consciousness). Do my words have consciousness? You know they do because we are speaking in real-time in a common language.
The computer collapses the wave of my consciousness for anyone who clicks on the right path. The same is true with God. Collapsing wave function is
the wave becoming a particle. Consciousness collapses the wave and this is demonstrated by the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. The
Observer collapses the wave. God is Father, Son (Word/Wave) and Consciousness (Holy Spirit). This is the TRINITY of the Godhead. We are slices of
1 Corinthians 10
14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving
for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because
there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.
The idol is our own self. When we choose to worship the material world or other beings, we deny the elegance and divinity of the whole. Multiplicity
must return to unity. Parts can choose not to reach back to Spirit.
Gospel of the Nazarenes (Lection 88)
12. For by involution and evolution shall the salvation of all the world be accomplished: by the Descent of Spirit into matter, and the Ascent of
matter into Spirit through the ages.
It's a choice.
