SEEK THE LIGHT !!!

"All that is now hidden will someday come to light.

If you have ears, listen!

Be sure to put into practice what you hear.

The more you do this, the more you will understand what I tell you."

Jesus

religious dogma

"People often take the truths of a tradition on faith accepting the testimony of others but find that the inner kernel of the religion, its luminous essence, remains elusive." - Karen Armstrong

"The doctrine of Biblical inerrancy is the religious counterpart of the scientific ambition to axiomatize reality. Here is certainty! No longer is it necessary to look within oneself to know truth - it is all laid out in black and white!" - Charles Eisenstein

"The most effective way to close down the human mind and to maniplulate its sense of self is to program into it some form of dogma. A dogma will always vehemently defend itself from other information and repel any alternative opinion which contradicts its narrow, solidified view." - David Icke

"Once we understand the condition of the collective subconsciousness of the masses, the power of acculturation and conformism, and the craving for simple explanations, we must accept that widespread self-imposed ignorance in relation to religious belief is practically an innate aspect of the human condition. Such reductive faith in the exoteric literal interpretation of the New Testament severs it from its esoteric roots, thus becoming subject to distortion and politicized misuse. Let us attempt to overcome this, which, rather than undermining the Truth of Christ, is like clearing centuries of muck off a great work of art, revealing its essential beauty and meaning." - Lew Paz

"Dogma demands authority, rather than intelligent thought, as the source of opinion; it requires persecution of heretics and hostility to unbelievers; it asks of its disciples that they should inhibit natural kindness in favor of systematic hatred." - Bertrand Arthur William Russell



Throughout history sacred text has been edited, corrected, redacted, combined, re-edited and re-corrected by both foolish and unscrupulous men.

A sacred text interpreter attempting to clarify conceptual understanding may corrupt sacred text by shifting persepctive from that of metaphorical allegory to that of literal interpretation.

Some purposefully obscured sacred writings for personal gain.

A literal reading of "sacred text" is meant for children.

Mature adults understand "sacred text" as metaphoric allegory.

Our storehouse of knowledge has been looted repeatedly over time.

The libraries of the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Venetians, as well as countless others have been destroyed by religious zealots.

In China when a dynasty fell newly empowered officials went back and rewrote the history of the past hundred or more years to shine a favorable light on those currently in power.

"From the totalitarian point of view history is something to be created rather than learned. A totalitarian state is in effect a theocracy, and its ruling caste, in order to keep its position, has to be thought of as infallible. But since, in practice, no one is infallible, it is frequently necessary to rearrange past events in order to show that this or that mistake was not made, or that this or that imaginary triumph actually happened." - George Orwell

Before the School of Athens partitioned reality into fields of study political affiliation was synonymous with religious affiliation.

Men became gods and gods became men so gods could die !

Tribal mergers took place in much the same way as corporate mergers take place with some elements of each tribe being incorporated into the merged tribal structure but with the predominant tribe largely dictating the tradition of the social cultural system.

In the Levant the god of creation, El, went through multiple name changes when the gods of neighboring tribes kept being folded in.

A tribes god bound the tribe together and as the empire builders went to work in the Levant they quickly learned that the best way to get a tribe to submit was to adopt the gods of conquered tribes as lesser gods.

The Roman Catholics adopted this method and by giving local gods sainthood.

Within the closeted group individuals adhering to the commonly held religious (political) ideology become 'chosen ones' while those on the outside remained 'other'.

"For the chosen people racialism substitutes the chosen race , selected as the instrument of destiny, ultimately to inherit the earth. In the case of racialism, this is thought of as a kind of natural law; the biological superiority of the blood of the chosen race explains the course of history, past, present, and future; it is nothing but the struggle of races for mastery." - Karl Popper

Three hundred years before the birth of Jesus the Therapeutae the Cult of Serapis, founded by Ptolemy the Savior, required believers to make a 'leap of faith' by adhering to the professed mythological structure to attain afterlife.

Before this period of time only rulers, such as Pharaoh Akhenaten, had the magical ability to return to life from the heavens above (as Tutankhamun).

All religious dogma requires believers to suspend belief in their senses, their experience and their understanding of natural reality.

No person in a natural state of mind can accept breaches to the Laws of Physics which are also the Laws of the Creator and Susatiner.

People expect reality to conform to their current understanding of reality and yet understanding of reality must constantly be reevaluated as experience and knowledge is gained, both consciously and subconsciously.

The knowledge gained subconsciously is generally unavailable to the ego, the conscious thought stream, unless you are walking the Thinspace.



false prophets

Snakes

"Leaders of religion, in every age, have hindered their people from attaining the shores of eternal salvation, inasmuch as they held the reins of authority in their mighty grasp." - Bahá'u'lláh

"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortionists will inherit the kingdom of God." - 1 Corinthians 6:9-10

"In leadership they have recognized the ultimate object of their endeavor, and account pride and haughtiness as the highest attainments of their heart's desire. They have placed their sordid machinations above the divine decree, have renounced resignation unto the Will of God, busied themselves with selfish calculation, and walked in the way of the hypocrite. With all their power and strength they strive to secure themselves in their petty pursuits, fearful lest the least discredit and undermine their authority or blemish the display of their magnificence." - Bahá'u'lláh



To identify a Snake, a false religious teacher, look for the following traits:

Many Snakes start out with a good heart and the right intentions but fall into the transcendental temptation as they gain pride with their new found power of molding emotion and thought.

Snakes, many times holding academic credentials, claim their training gives them a unique understanding.

Snakes will ask you to trust them to function as intercessors.

A Snake will take advantage of an individual seeking religious succor as an aid in coping with the tragedy of life when they are more malleable and open to religious suggestion .

Snakes claim the only way to heaven is through accepting their interpretation of scripture.

Snakes concentrate on certain thought forms, concepts and ideas in a deliberate intent to excite intense emotional turmoil and confusion.

Snakes employ psychology using the power of persuasion, the power of deception, cold reading techniques, Forer effect/Barnum statements, shotgunning techniques and the rainbow ruse.

Snakes use unreasoning terror and fear as control mechanisms.

Snakes promise supernatural power, speaking in tongues and will heal you.

Snakes suggest that if pray hard enough, have enough faith or are righteous then you can physically alter the noumenon with your prayers.

Snakes claim that their closeness to God is exhibited in the material wealth that God showered upon them while they relentless sell you the latest installment of their prophetic revelations in the form of conferences, books, CDs and DVDs.

Canonising Mother Teresa: The Selling of the Catholic Church

Calcutta Will Take a Century to Recover from Mother Teresa


"Beware of the teachers of religion! For in pride they wear the robes of the rich and scholarly, and to have everyone bow to them as they walk through the markets. They love to sit in the best seats in the synagogues, and at the places of honor at banquets, but they cheat widows out of their homes and then, to cover up what they really are, they pretend to be pious by praying long prayers in public. It is hard for those who trust in riches to understand the Word of God. It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to hear and understand the Word of God."

"Beware of false religious teachers who come. You can detect them by the way they act, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit. Different kinds of fruit trees can quickly be identified by examining their fruit. A variety that produces delicious fruit never produces an inedible fruit. And a tree producing an inedible fruit can't produce what is good. So the trees having the inedible fruit are chopped down and thrown on the fire. The way to identify a tree or a individual is by the fruit produced. Not all who sound religious are. They may refer to me as 'Lord,' but still won't get to heaven, for the decisive question is whether they obey the Law of God."



New Thought

Phineas Parkhurst Quimby

1802 Phineas Parkhurst Quimby is born in Lebanon, New Hampshire. He is generally recognized as the "Father of New Thought." Phineas Parkhurst Quimby was a philosopher, magnetizer, mesmerist, healer, and 'scientist'. New Thought metaphysics denies objective material reality. Phineas Parkhurst Quimby transmitted his views to patients Warren Felt Evans, Mary Baker Eddy, and Julius and Annetta Dresser.

Essek William Kenyon was another New Thought proponent, and Kenneth E. Hagin the founder of Word of Faith movement used Essek William Kenyon's ideas almost verbatim. Kenneth Copeland and all other Word of Faith proponents trace their roots back to Kenneth E. Hagin and Essek William Kenyon.


Essek William Kenyon

1892 Essek William Kenyon desired to be an actor and attended the Emerson School of Oratory in Boston.

1898 Essek William Kenyon opens Bethel Bible Institute.

All the religious movements arising from New Thought preach the supremacy of the spiritual over the material claiming the material reality is a fantastic "Matrix" like construct and that true reality exists only in the spiritual realm.

New Thought preaches the human spirit creates physical health; the human mind through positive mental attitude and positive confession has the supernatural power to create its own reality - health, wealth and dominion.

By using the precepts of New Thought spiritual forces can be manipulated by the will of the individual.

"I know that I am healed because He said that I am healed and it makes no difference what the symptoms may be in my body. I laugh at them, and in the Name of Jesus I command the author of the disease to leave my body." - Essek William Kenyon

Essek William Kenyon's New Thought followers include Norman Vincent Peale, Robert H. Schuller, Kenneth E. Hagin, Kenneth Copeland and many others including Bill Hybels of Willow Creek.

2006 Robert H. Schuller turns over his Crystal Cathedral mega-church non-profit 501c3 empire to his son Robert A. Schuller.

2008, due to declining membership Robert H. Schuller removes his son, Robert A. Schuller, from the Crystal Cathedral mega-church non-profit 501c3 leadership.

Robert H. Schuller promises to replace his son's lectern position on the "Hour Of Power" television show with the "greatest preachers in the world."

"Change your thoughts and you change your reality." - Norman Vincent Peale




William Marrion Branham

William Marrion Branham reports supernatural visitations at ages 3 and 7.

1933 William Marrion Branham preaches to three thousand people in a tent revival in Jeffersonville Indiana and later builds Branham Tabernacle.

William Marrion Branham basically births the entire Healing Revival movement and its offshoot the Signs and Wonders movement which television neoevangelists have capitalized on ever since.

early sixties William Marrion Branham claimes that he is the end-times "Elijah" - the "Messenger of the Covenant".

William Marrion Branham, an original Kansas City "prophet", became a Charismatic Pentacostal legend by filling the worlds largest auditoriums and stadiums by demonstrating the "Gift of Discernment" and the "Word of Knowledge".

William Marrion Branham claimed he was guided by an angel who was scientifically revealed in a photo image as "Cloven Tongues of Fire".

William Marrion Branham taught the "Two Seed dogma"; mentored Oral Roberts; proclaimed himself the "angel of revelation"; preached Manifest Sons dogma; claimed to have witnessed a resurrection due to his intercession and helped cross-pollinate the entire "Positive Confession / Word of Faith movement" with Manifest Sons dogma.

1965

William Marrion Branham ascends. His followers expect him to be resurrected. They are still waiting.

"In Bible Days, there were men of God who were Prophets and Seers. But in all the Sacred records, none of these had a greater ministry than that of William Marrion Branham." - 1961 Voice, magazine of the Full Gospel Business Men International

Kenneth E. Hagin mythology, founder of RHEMA (utterance) Bible Training Center, "RHEMA logos Positive Confession" borrowed from William Marrion Branham's positive confession teachings. Kenneth E. Hagin, never received any formal theological training, although he received an honorary doctorate from Oral Roberts University, a non-profit 501c3, in the 1970s. (In 2008 debt ridden Oral Roberts University was abandoned by Benny Hinn and Creflo A. Dollar who were board members when a spending scandal by Richard Roberts, Oral Roberts son, came to light. Benny Hinn and Creflo A. Dollar were being investigated in 2007 by Senator Charles E. Grassley for violating tax-exempt status by living lavishly on the backs of small donors.)

"Then the Lord said to me, "The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and the delusions of their own minds." - Jeremiah 14:14



mobilizing the church

Rodney Howard-Browne

1983 Rodney Howard-Browne attended RHEMA Bible Training Center, a non-profit 501c3 institution, in South Africa from where he graduates .

"One night I was preaching on hell, and laughter just hit the whole place. The more I told people what hell was like, the more they laughed." - Rodney Howard-Browne

"So began the so-called Laughter revival in the US passed down from Rodney Howard-Browne to Randy Clark from Randy Clark to John Arnott the pastor of the Toronto Airport Vineyard." - Dr. Eddy Cheong

"What shall we say about Rodney Howard-Browne's ministry? It is the result of a deceptive scheme of manipulation and crowd control, not the genuine work of God. Jesus said, "You will know them by their fruits." Remember: supernatural power, signs and wonders are insufficient to determine someone's true nature. Israel was misled and deceived in their days, and numerous Christians are misled and deceived today. Just look deeper than what meets the eyes." - Yves Brault

Rodney Howard-Browne's meetings are a good example of a scripted performance running to a definite plan and using psychological techniques to maniplulate listeners. Rodney Howard-Browne's performance is mesmeric - carefully and minutely staged to best effect.

Rodney Howard-Browne openly insults anyone who does not submit to his methods. Any individual foolhardy enough to sit still, read the Bible, and resist the waves of laughter is publicly branded "a religious Pharisee" and when that individual eventually walks out, Rodney Howard-Browne mocks them.



Jimmy Swaggart

Jimmy Swaggart

Jimmy Swaggart, television neoevangelist and prolific showman, was baptized by the Holy Spirit at the age of eight while attending an Assemblies of God meeting. Attendance at Jimmy Swaggart's meetings originally were boosted by his cousin Jerry Lee Lewis. As head of the Pentecostal Bible College, a non-profit 501c3, Jimmy Swaggart conducted a television neoevangelist ministry of national prominence on par with Benny Hinn and Jim Bakker.

Jimmy Swaggart was caught one day with a prostitute in a local motel. Then was found to frequent prostitutes. Jimmy Swaggart never repented and was defrocked by the Assemblies of God in April, 1988.

"If I do not return to the pulpit this weekend, millions of people will go to hell." - Jimmy Swaggart

Tim LaHaye & Hal Lindsey

Tim LaHaye & Hal Lindsey

Both Tim LaHaye and Hal Lindsey write as if what they say in fiction somehow contributes to the promotion of biblical eschatology.

Tim LaHaye, founder and president of psychologically oriented Family Life Seminars, is best known for the Left Behind series of apocalyptic fiction.

"We've fallen in love with the characters and the people and we're dreaming about what's going to happen to them. It's really a fun experience." - Tim LaHaye

Hal Lindsey claims that according to Biblical prophecy the European Union is destined to become a "Revived Roman Empire" ruled by the "Antichrist." Hal Lindsey, a "Christian Zionist", also wrote Satan Is Alive and Well on Planet Earth.

Hal Lindsey hosted International Intelligence Briefing on the Trinity Broadcasting Network.

"The program this week addressed the tremendous political upheaval in Israel – including the toppling of the government – in the wake of the Gaza withdrawals. It warned about the peril America faces if we pull out of Iraq and leave the perception that radical Islamic terrorists defeated the worlds only superpower. A unique and dynamic exclusive interview that I was fortunate enough to conduct with Binyamin Netanyahu while in Jerusalem was also rejected from being aired on this week's show." - Hal Lindsey

"I didn't ask to be a hero, but I guess I have become one in the Christian community. So I accept it." - Hal Lindsey

"The Tim LaHaye School of Prophecy convenes its first classes in January 2002. This Liberty University diploma program will be an extension of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and will meet at the Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg. Dr. LaHaye and I share a common burden to train 21st Century church leaders and eschatological teachers who fully understand the doctrine of the premillennial, pretribulational coming of Christ for all of His Church. The first 500 students to enroll in The Tim LaHaye School of Prophecy will receive a 90% tuition scholarship worth $8,000. This means the first 500 students will pay a tuition price of only $1,000-per-semester ($2,000 for the entire year). Regular one-year tuition cost, without the scholarship, is $10,000." - Jerry Falwell. Jerry Falwell's sons, Jerry Jr. and Jonathan, took over Jerry Falwell's megachurch non-profit 501c3 empire when Jerry Falwell died in 2007 of cogestive heart failure.

The neoevangelicals that served with Tim LaHaye at Coalition for Religious Freedom as executive committee and/or advisory board members were Don Wildmon (founder of American Family Association, a non-profit 501c3 with an annual budget of about $14 million, owns 180 American Family neoevangelic radio stations in 28 states. Marlin Maddoux (Point Of View nationwide neoevangelic radio talk show host), Paul Crouch (Trinity Broadcasting Network founder), Hal Lindsey, James Robison, Jimmy Swaggart, and Dennis James Kennedy (television and radio neoevangelist of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church).

Beverly LaHaye's Concerned Women for America has long accepted Adolf Coors' money, which has hindered the Concerned Women for America from tackling alcohol-related issues. (Alcohol is the nation's number one "drug problem," accounting for over $100 billion in economic costs and 105,000 deaths each year.)

1974Dennis James Kennedy founds Coral Ridge Ministries, which produces the weekly television program, The Coral Ridge Hour, carried on various networks and syndicated on numerous other stations, and a daily neoevangelic radio program, Truths That Transform, heard on neoevangelic radio stations in America and also available as a podcast on the program's website. During Dennis James Kennedy lifetime, Coral Ridge Ministries grew to a $37-million-a-year non-profit 501c3 with an audience of 3.5 million.



Dalai Lama

"Fame, wealth and power are not qualifications for a spiritual leader!"
- Dalai Lama

Jesus never preached on healing, prosperity, success,
or any of the other things that center on man and his material well-being !!!

"All that is written in the holy writings comes from the Spirit of God. The holy writings are good for these things: to teach people, to show them when they are wrong, to make them see what is right, to teach them to do right."
2 Timothy 3:16

"Our moral code is a product of gradual social evolution, like language, or manners, or the common law, and that, like them, it has grown and evolved to meet the need for peace, order and social cooperation. Imagine a society in which no moral code existed, or in which it were the exact opposite of the codes we customarily find. Imagine how long a society (or the individuals in it) could prosper or even continue to exist in which ill manners, promise-breaking, lying, cheating, stealing, assault, rape, robbery, murder, ingratitude, disloyalty, treachery, violence, and chaos were the rule - more highly regarded than their opposites - good manners, promise-keeping, truth-telling, honesty, fairness, loyalty, consideration for others, peace, order and social cooperation." - Henry Hazlitt




joel osteen



"It takes real courage to contemplate the possibility that your entire faith could be based on highly questionable, even unlikely premises. If you really probe, really dig deep enough through the theological mishmash, through the history of religious ideas, past the programs of conforming belief all clergymen are handed during their youthful seminary years, past all you have been taught in your church, you will discover your religion has no more reason to qualify as the 'one true way' than any other religion humans have constructed over the ages since the dawn of consciousness.

Thus you are free to open yourself to the full mysterium tremendum which transcends all religious concepts that confine the soul's need of blossoming, trusting that such opening creates a deeper faith which is nourished by the mulch of newly found wonder and awe.

There is much that stands in the way of such open-minded contemplations.

Psychological research has revealed that behind people's front of certainty and confidence in their religious belief, lies bewilderment and fear they are completely unaware of, because the subconscious mind, the very source of intuition, has its own way of detecting falsehoods contrived by the ego.

This intuitive knowledge gnawing at the threshold of consciousness kindles the heat of desperation, which the ego skillfully represses with the weight of false confidence. The more intense the subconscious doubt, the more zealous the claim of the believer. Such a belief system will be defended at all costs, inciting both politically and religiously justified wars." - Lew Paz

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.



This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
