Okay, so any smart person approaching Christianity for the first time is going to do so, in a sense, in a scientific manner sort of like an
Objectivist and look at it from every angle, every possibility, and most importantly will look at every version of Christianity as well. On top of
this, everything is questioned.
So when look at the Biblical Cannon, I see that some books, Gospel of Thomas (Even though it predates most other NT Texts, Book of Enoch, Apocalypse
of Peter, and a bunch of others were not included. So then one would ask; Why?
The Various Counsels, i.e. Nicaea, etc. These were counsels made of church bishops all under the order of an Emperor. Which means, there is a wide
range of political influence going on, swaying, bias, and as we all know what comes with politics is corruption.
sk yourself about these Bishops. Were they all Christ-like? We hardly see Saints who reach Christ-likeness during these times besides some/all? of the
Disciples and a few standouts here and there in History. For all we know, these Bishops could've just been people who benefited from positions of
power and were put there via corruption, bribery, etc
1800 Bishops attended, if not more. Emperor has his own agenda. There's a popularity contest among different countries that has to do with different
gospels, different versions of Christianity, some believed in reincarnation, others were mystical in nature, and so on.
Once you start digging, you find some interesting things. For example, in many places, Apocalypse of Peter was more popular than Revelations of John.
However the Counsel looking at Apocalypse of Peter sees that towards the end, Jesus is walking with Peter and tells him, (paraphrased) "Psssst,
Peter, between me and you I will tell you something. In the end, we will rescue and pull everyone out of Hell and reunite back with God. Which sounds
about right cause Paul says in NT that one day all will be reconciled.
So that's just the counsel right. Now we get into looking at OT and the Nature of the World and these bodies, and many things don't add up"
A. World is Filled with injustice, suffering, death
B. The designs of body are limited, sick, short life, dumb/unconsciousness and we are heading to a place where designs of these bodies via genetics
and understanding the human genome, will soon be in our hands to change the design of the body.
C. We're literally not from here, and were we are from as pure consciousness, is a million time better than these limited bodies and dumb/unconscious
brains. I remember pre-existing prior to the body and I was no sinner then.
D. Some people remember being forced to incarnate into bodies against their own will. I found 3 others who have remembered there own pre-existence and
being forced against their will to be here. I will post 2 of their memories here:
1. I am fortunate in remembering an inbetween life and the time of reincarnation for that lifetime. I refused to incarnate into that particular
lifetime and I was then taken to, what I can only describe as a ‘processing place’ and then being forcibly put into a foetus.
2. I remember it too! I remember from regular dreams of being on a grassy hillside just resting and drinking in the peace and tranquility when
suddenly I was ushered away to a portal device. I was terrified I was going to be “spagettied” which is my only word for defining it. Next thing I
was in a tightly confined yet peaceful place and just when I felt comfortable and safe, a pulsing and pressuring rhythm began and I would wake up
sweating and gasping to breathe.
E. The design of earth, especially nature, is cruel and disgusting. Bugs and animals are basically destroying each other to survive, dog eat dog,
survival of the fittest. If you watch certain bugs and how they plant eggs in other living bugs, the babies are then born and eat the living creature,
killing it to survive, is something that Stephen King couldn't even come up with in nay of his books.
F. So too, humans are, underneath the surface, barbaric beast-like animals and is just our modern society with its comforts that just barely keeps
that at bay. However, we are 1 revolution (take away food, tv, utilities) and you will see morals go out the window and people turn into fighting
beasts. Don't want to wait til then? Just watch world news and you will see the beast come out via killers, child molesters, rapes, wars, genocide,
pillage, etc. Its self evident even today
OT god's nature:
Says if Adam/Eve eat of tree of Knowledge, they will surely die, but they don't die, they just get kicked out of garden.
Regrets creating mankind and causes the flood, but an omniscient God who knows the outcome of every move he makes would know ahead of time that if he
created man, he would eventually regret and would have to flood, therefore wouldn't create man in the first place.
Is a Jealous god: Jealousy = Insecurity and Obsession. Someone who is that best at something, see Michael Jordan, isn't jealous of anyone else
because they know they are the best. Its a very weak human emotion of someone who has low self esteem and personality defects. For example, I am not
jealous of anyone or anything where I currently am in my life, I just never let myself stoop that low. Or if you ever had a jealous Girlfriend or knew
someone who is super jealous, its just such a negative and weak trait and you don't want to be around that person. If he is Only God, then he has
nothing to be jealous about and knows that people will worship idols because they are unconscious.
Worshipping idols: Today. the majority of the world worships money, fame, tv, themselves, and its worse than it ever was as far as idolatry, and yet
this being isn't pouring out his wrath.
Wrath vs Love. You can't be both, especially when it comes to your children. We see all the time people who do wrong like kill, rape, molest, and the
parents of those people who do these terrible things, still Love them, forgive them, and aren't wrathful towards them. Sure they might not agree with
their actions, but there is no wrath. For the most part, underneath it all, there is still unconditional Love. So how much more unconditional love
would there be in a Loving God?
The need for Animal Sacrifice is ridiculous: If I sinned back then in OT times, it doesn't make sense that killing an innocent animal, one who had
absolutely nothing to do with any sins, would have to die to cover my sins, sins that were done because I was created a sinner in the first place. A
bit of a paradox here. Furthermore, if you look at other religions from other cultures, some native tribes (US, Mexico, Australia), taois, buddhism,
dzogchen, greek philosophies, etc....they have a need to sacrifice innocent animals as its not a universal thing.
Religion (exoteric) blinds you. It tells you this is how it is and don't question it and don't go within to know thyself. Religion is a hierarchical
system, like corporations, like governments, and 99.9999% of those at the top of these hierarchical systems are themselves
OT makes you feel guilty for being born, cause your a sinner and you will never be good enough. It creates this schism in your own personality, this
huge guilt trip. Yet god made you a sinner and you yourself, not having a freewill say as to whether or not you even want to exist in the first place,
have to hang your shoulders low because you are a
