How is “Paul’s Gospel” any more valid than Joseph Smith’s and Ellen White’s? All three of these individuals share the same premise for
receiving instruction from their respective gods. They all saw visions through which Jesus, or “God the Father,” instructed them to preach, write
books, create a new religion, etc.
I can hear George Carlin right now, talking about how god gave Moses the ten commandments. “Up on a mountain… when noooo one was around!” lol
If the original gospels weren’t difficult enough to understand, Paul’s musings on salvation only serve to further kick up the dust storm in
Here’s the part where I really go off the rails and nobody takes me seriously. I have asked for understanding from the Source about the Christian
gospels. This is the answer I got:
The story of Jesus, just like all the savior legends that came before, is telling a very simple story: The Sun’s journey through the procession of
solstices and equinoxes. The gospel is an allegorical expression of Astrology. It’s Astrotheology. As above, so below. All of the great stories are
based on this: good versus evil, light against darkness; the story of Jesus is no different. It's the sun, the seasons, and the constellations of the
Here’s a few illustrations to get you started, if you’re interested in exploring further:
There's the "Son" on the "Cross." A ubiquitous symbol in western religion.
Still, I believe there is some wisdom to be found in the specific lessons Jesus was preaching during his ministry. The parables are classic lesson
nuggets that beautifully convey ideas about morality, salvation, the kingdom of god, and so on. However, these lessons are not exclusive to
Christianity. The same wisdom can be found in other philosophies like Egyptian Hermeticism or Taoism. (Even similar savior figures like Jesus.)
Just look at my signature. The Temples of Luxor were founded in 1400 B.C.E and it contains inscriptions of “Christian” proverbs. The wisdom of
Christ and Solomon is not exclusive to them.
The problem I have with the Abrahamic faiths is their insistence that they present the sole truth and nothing but the truth. When in actuality
they’ve borrowed nearly everything they believe from the pagans and shamans who came before them.
I wish Christians would stop looking down on the pagans. They have a lot more in common than they realize.
