…..and that’s the Way it is.
There are many blatant fallacies in X-tianity and one of its more annoying ones is the idea that the Bible is the ‘word of God’. Nonsense! The Spirit is the Word, The Son of God, the Christ is the Word.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
How much more direct does it get? The Word is the Creator. John 1:3:
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”
And the Word (the Christ, the Spirit) dwells in our hearts:
John 1:4: “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”
This is so important to understand: The Spirit is in us, with us, ALWAYS! X-tians call this ‘New Age’, but they simply don’t read the texts they themselves say are from God. That’s X-tianity for you.
God didn’t write the Bible and the Bible is not perfect. Imperfect men wrote the Bible and X-tianity is in fact Paulianity. Paul is badly overrated and often at odds with Jesus and other writers in the NT.
Still, X-tians claim the Bible is the word of God….because the Bible says so! Clearly, clinging to such childish beliefs is induced by fear. Fear instilled by priests, vicars and the Organized Religion control grid.
When a boy becomes a man, he must reconsider everything he was brainwashed (‘educated’) with. And this kind of circular logic must always be discarded. The Bible is an inspired text with profound implications and meaning. It’s hard to think of a more relevant text. But there are many problems with the Bible. And there are other inspired texts too.
The Bible does require a very critical approach to get to the nuggets and discard the Vatican mind control.
Jesus himself, who incarnated the Spirit (John 1:14: “14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us”) and through whom the Spirit spoke, mocked the idea of finding Truth in scripture. John 5:39-40:
“39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” 40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.” Let that sink in! ‘for in them ye think ye have eternal life’, ‘AND YOU WILL NOT COME TO ME’.
And remember: the Spirit speaks through Jesus. He’s the ‘I’ of the New Testament. And that’s the truth: we do not come to the Spirit!
We do not go inside, silencing the voices of self (ego) so that the quiet words of the Word can be heard! We do not wait for the Lord! We do not humble ourselves for the silent, spacious emptiness within, where the Creator himself resides. Where we can find peace, joy, happiness, faith and wisdom!
We hope to solve the riddle of life by thinking about it, with the mental body (reading, speaking, thinking), instead of silencing the monkey mind, so that God himself can speak to us.
So hush now brothers and sisters! Retire to your private quarters and consume the One Love!
