I am a firm believer if you are going to believe in a God you must do your research to arrive at the context of what the words are talking about. Most times we fall into the trap that we assume because someone has a college degree we the common people are too stupid to understand grammatical and Philosophical context and contents of a sentence to arrive at a justification for what you believe in.
I will address the sentences in green with a few points for you to consider. Also as I have said before to know the present you have to go to the past. The same thing applies when you are reading scripture. It does not deter me or my thinking that whoever wrote the Bible the images are inspired. It is pure Eastern Philosophy the cannons of life with a few caveats.
From Yesterday’s Blog conti……….
This was a comment to me from some person who mimics the Word. He has no idea what it is saying because he has not done his research. He never went back into the Old Testament to see the other side of the coin.
Correct, that is why (1) Jesus said , I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, and No man comes unto the Father except by me. He also said,” unless you have the faith of a child, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven” this is because a child can believe without seeing! And true faith requires trust and hope and love. No Pope , pastor or priest can intercede for you,(2) however a contrite heart and recognition of one’s own faults, and willingness to confess them and belief that Jesus is the only begotten son of the father will grant anyone forgiveness of faults and reconciliation with the Father.
Jesus is not the only begotten son of the Father;
……that we should be called the sons of God: Beloved, now are we the sons of God,…….sons is plural….What Jesus was saying he changed his ways as a man and he knew he was begotten of the words of the Father. If you remember Jesus disappeared for about 18 yrs in the wilderness. No one knows where he was at. He left home as a son and returned as a Man. Again Philosophical images; First born son inherits nothing: Second born son inherits; be it good or evil. Images of Cain who murdered and Abel who was peaceful like a rattlesnake until provoked.
The images of Jesus, Mary and Joseph are Semitic/Aramaic images of Abraham and Sarah from the Old Testament. The second born of Abraham was Isaac. It says Mary was a virgin untouched by man simply means that no man has the power of life in the womb. The same holds true for today’s women like my friend, Mara Metron Kalliope. You have children that is a virgin birth untouched by man. Man cannot create life only intelligent design in the Laws of Nature has that power. Man can only destroy life or each other.
Confess and Reconciliation
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
What this is saying if you feel your words may have pissed someone off. Resolve the issue between you and that person. Do not let words fester like an open wound. If you take the view all I have to do is confessed to God first, you are simply disregarding your responsibilities as a man or woman. Shoving your mistake into thin air it avails to no good because the person you pissed off is still pissed off at you. You make your peace with the person and move on. If you go to a box and confess to a face you cannot see that is pure dribble. Because you go out and piss someone else the next week and talk to a box again never correcting the situation. That is why in a marriage you never go to bed pissed off at each other. Two the man always has his eyes on you and not looking at other women.
Going to confess to a faceless box; it is like sitting in a court of Law. You are telling the prosecutor that you are guilty and want to pled; no contest. What you are saying; you are not pleading guilty or not guilty your simply pleading no contest. The faceless prosecutor comes back with a verdict; Heave down three bloody Marys; that’s Vodka and Tomato juice eat some beer nuts and see you next week when you confess again. Your on probation now.
Meanwhile the person you pissed off is still pissed off. But you have been assured by the faceless box that God heard your prayer. The person you pissed off wants to sue you now and perhaps cause you harm with frivolous words to others.
Then you get an edict from the courts that you are nothing but a fungus and now the Muslims are the true sons of Abraham. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…………….I believe in words that have power over me and guide my life everyday……..If I piss someone off I will make amends to resolve the issue. If they do not listen at least I held up my end of the bargain. Then I might go drink 3 Black Russians (Kahlua and Vodka) and still eat beer nuts and move on in life.
Men if you make a Woman cry for any reason you are dead wrong; 50 yrs of experience. It does not matter if you think you are right. You yield your strength. Use your strength to protect the family from strange words from men around you make them cry. Just for reflection; I am not a fungus, that is from an old man who just told his followers, 1 .3 billion people worldwide today. I am not sure why you want to follow man’s religions that anglicized words into UFO experiences that no one has ever seen.
Bricks have four sides words have four sides but at the end of the day you only see two faces Good or Evil. Depends on what you see in images swirling in your mind your soul that lifts or bends your spirit. Charity begins at home with your families.
For Me it is simple;
Oneness of God in Nature
Oneness of Man
Oneness of Woman
