My attempt here is to give you an understanding that you will not get from any other source. This is a much deeper understanding than the mere
surface meaning of scripture. What I am attempting to do is show you the abstract meaning of hidden symbolism. Receive it or ignore it. It is your
If you think of a pendulum swinging, consider the three movements that are possible. When the pendulum is at rest, opposite movement is at a neutral
position. A pendulum in motion swings equally between opposites. There is a very interesting aspect to life that I have noticed matching this
movement of opposites.
One of the clearest examples I have used often here on ATS is smoking and working out in a gym. A body at rest is in a neutral position. Taking a
substance into the body generally affects the body in some way. For instance, if you smoke, you generally suffer health problems. Moving this motion
in the opposite direction, you can gain health by expending energy and suffering work. One swing of this activity takes a reward that ends in
suffering. The other swing of the pendulum suffers first, ending in reward. The trick is to create a balancing point which nets a surplus.
Overeating will cause health problems. Over exercise will do the same. Balancing what is taken in with what is expended maximizes potential. Keep
this use of natural law in mind.
In Greek and Latin, the word Amnēstia has two meanings in most languages. On one side, it is Amnesia, or forgetting what you know. On the other
end, it is Amnesty, or someone forgetting the law you have broken. Amnesty is a granting of grace. In this case, your transgression is forgotten.
I was thinking on this earlier today. Is there a reciprocal relationship to Amnēstia that can be compared to our understanding of suffering as it
relates to sin and judgment?
Not too long ago, I discovered a chain of words in Greek and Latin that relate to the Hebrew word AMN, which is our English word AMEN. Here are the
definitions and related meanings.
AMN in Hebrew means TRUE. It means, "let it be so."
AMN in Greek and Latin is Lamb
Why are there two meanings East and West? Consider the Pendulum. Consider the Hebrews and Gentiles. Why does the Bible tell us of the swing between
each direction? Can the Gentile be saved by the Hebrew savior? How? Based on what I say here, you will come to realize.
AMNi is River, like the river of life.
AMNio is the bowl catching the sacrificial blood of a lamb in ancient Roman culture. It is also the same word as AMNion, which is the sac covering
the baby in the mother's womb. The meaning is related by the nature of where the lamb is located. AMNio is outside the womb. AMNion is inside.
Keep this in mind as you relate this to the pendulum and to the word Amnēstia.
AMNiotic fluid is the water of the mother's womb.
AMNesia is the condition of the water. Adding sia to any word in Latin creates a condition. It is the state of not remembering for the
AMNesty is when a governing agent forgets your transgression and grants a person absolution from the requirements and penalty of a law. It includes
the rights of citizenship in most cases.
dAMNation is then Amnesty in opposite. This is when the authorities do not forget.
Here is where we put it all together. Go back to the reciprocal nature of suffering above. Taking reward ends in suffering. Suffering on purpose
results in developing reward. Now, relate this to the overall chain of meaning and compare all of this to God's judgment of the human lamb (Sheep).
What is the Shepherd leading us to do? Give to others. What is given must first be earned. Giving comes in many forms, but always requires the
giver to suffer loss of something. We first earn something (also possible to receive), then give it away to another person. Love can be given.
Respect can be given. Honor can be given. Food, clothing, shelter, safety can all be given. In each of these cases, what is given can also be
withheld or stolen.
What is the judgment of God's law in this matter? When we judge others (remember their failures), the Bible says God does not forget our own
failures. Judge not lest ye be judged. In the same manner you judge others, you will also be judged. In other words, if you fail to forget, God
will remember your sin. If you forgive and forget, God does the same for you.
Go back to Amnesia and Amnesty. Amnesia is when you forget, much like the life we live. If we have lived before, we do not remember. Humanity does
not remember their past. Why is this? Go back to Amnesty. When we are forgiven (simply by asking God), He forgets our sin. He is faithful and just
to forgive. Why does He do this? When we remember our own sin, we ask forgiveness. In this case, God forgets. When we remember the sins of others,
God remembers our own sin.
Where, then, does dAMNation come in (the removal of the AMN / Lamb)? The Bible states that a lack of faith in God is damnation for the soul. A lack
of belief in God is His damnation of our ability to live forever. If we do not determine God to be faithful and True (AMN), then our AMN is determined
to be unfaithful. It is a reciprocal relationship. To be faithful, we must be trusted. God CAN be trusted. Can we? Love requires a relationship of
Sort it out. Use what I have said to see why this is so. It is a perfect truth that reveals why God demands love from us and for others. We must
love others as we love ourselves. If not, we have no part in his Kingdom. Why? God is love.
1 John 4
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does
not know God, because God is love. 9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through
him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so
loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in
My question is this: Why does love make us complete? Use the reasoning above. Is there a solid foundation for the truth in 1 John 4? Go back to
the Old Testament. Why was God invariable and harsh to the people? Why was Christ the example of love? Is there a contradiction? What is the end
result for humanity?
The answer is: You become what you love. If it is only yourself, then you only have yourself as a savior. If we love God, we have His awesome
wisdom, truth and power as our advocate.
Love covers a multitude of sin. Like respect, love must be mutual. God demands that we even love our enemies. Suffer on purpose if you want reward
