The Stupidity Of The Gospel Of Thomas? Really?

I was recently watching some videos by pastor Anderson. He makes many good points about many issues.

But unfortunately, when he sets out to defame the Gospel of Thomas, he does himself and Jesus a disservice.

Paster Anderson overlooks that in the early stages of the Vatican’s rule, it waged holy war on authentic Christian sects. These were aware of the teachings Jesus gave his initiates, which were different from what he told the multitude.

These texts were lost because of this long term repression.

Anderson is limited by the ungodly notion that the Bible is the Word of God. Jesus Christ is the Word of God, not the Bible.

He thus cannot rationally discuss how the Bible came about, or that it was at the time what the Vatican pressed on the Christian world with pure power politics and the manufacturing of ‘consensus’.

In this vid Anderson sets out to ‘destroy’ Jesus’ sayings in the Gospel of Thomas and he does so in a way showing his utter lack of real spiritual knowledge.

Let’s mention them point for point:
verse 114: “Simon Peter said to him, Let Mary leave us, for women are not worthy of life. Jesus said: I myself shall lead her in order to make her male, so she too may become a living spirit like you males. For every woman who makes herself male will enter the Kingdom of Heaven’.

Jesus here refers to the earthly nature of women, who therefore have more difficulty observing Source, consciousness, Him. They are more obsessed with passion and desire and this is the main enemy of spiritual awareness. However, women can learn to overcome this ‘by becoming male’, less identified with the lower chakras.

Verse 15. Jesus said: when you see one who was not born of woman, prostrate yourselves on your face before him, and worship him. That one is your father.’

The idea here is, that he who is reborn in the Spirit, is no longer of the flesh and thus ‘not born of woman’. He who knows the Spirit, knows the Father.

Verse 30: Jesus said: where there are three Gods, they’re Gods. When there are two or one, I’m with them.

This one I don’t completely understand. I do have an idea though: Christianity knows two Gods, who are basically one: The Father, who is in heaven, and the Son, the Word, Logos, who is the Creator (at the behest of the Father) and is in His Creation and who is known as our Lord Jesus Christ.

More than two Gods (father and son) is the polytheism of antiquity.

Verse 37: His disciples said: When will you become revealed to us, and when shall we see you? Jesus said: When you disrobe, without being ashamed and take up your garments and place them under your feet like little children and tread on them.

This harkens back to Krishna, who in the Baghavad Gita said that death is nothing but putting off old clothes.

Our Garments here represent self. The human condition is, that identification with self (mind, emotion, desire, body) hinders our view of the Spirit.

Verse 42: Jesus said: become passers by.

Anderson sadly really laughs hard about this one, making fun of such a ‘meaningless’ statement.

What is said here is the same as ‘be in this world, but not of it’.

Those how live in the Spirit are not identified with the material, which just flows through them without them clinging to it.

Verse 53: His disciples said to him: is circumcision beneficial or not? Jesus said: if it were beneficial, their Father would beget them already circumcised from their mother.

Well, it couldn’t be more clear, really. And this is fully congruent with the New Testament too, so I don’t really understand why Anderson would make fun of this.

Jesus said: He who drinks from my mouth will become like me. I myself shall become he. And the things that are hidden will become revealed to him.

It’s really sad Anderson mocks this, because this is the profound promise of the Spirit. ‘Drinking from my mouth’ is similar figure of speech like ‘eat my bread, drink my water’ etc.

What this refers to is that he that lives with the Spirit, silencing self, just being with Him, in the Holy Place, will be ‘reformed’ (like Paul wrote) and will receive the fruit of the Spirit. Profound insight comes to those who go deeper and deeper into the Mystery of the Spirit in personal surrender and communion. This is an eternal path, as the Spirit is endless and shares His endless bounty with those who go all the way in shedding their Garments and become like little Children.

So it’s not all so incredibly complicated. These are fundamental spiritual realities and most can be directly linked to things Jesus said in the New Testament.

The Gospel of Thomas doubtlessly provides the honest seeker with good wisdom to contemplate in prayer and meditation.

.....and that's the Way it is.

…..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.

John 1:1:
“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!

Fruits of the Spirit

Without the Spirit, the situation is hopeless. That much is clear.

Who hate Christ the most? The Jews, of course. In the Talmud they explain he’s in hell, boiling in his own excrement.

In the Protocols (the final one) they simply state: ‘we will do away with Christ’. 

In another Protocol they mention Darwin, Marx and Nietzsche as their own. Their common theme? Theories that make God superfluous.

People currently holding atheist views are right of course: religion sucks. But they fall for the same hoax as the believers: the idea that priests, mullahs and vicars represent God.

Obviously, they don’t. Law based religion (the idea that you are saved when you do this or that) is antithetical to the Spirit. That’s the essence of Christ’s ferocious battles with the Pharisees.

Christ, as did the Buddha and Lao Tse, wanted direct interaction between Him (Spirit incarnate) and his Children. You.

If you are in the phase of non-belief, don’t worry.

He still believes in you.
