Shortly after Eckhart dies Pope
John XXII issues a bull (In
agro dominico), 27 March 1329, in which a series of statements from Eckhart is
characterized as heretical.
"We tried to have the censure lifted on
Eckhart and were told that there was really no need since he had never been
condemned by name, just some propositions which he was supposed to have held,
and so we are perfectly free to say that he is a good and orthodox theologian."

Contrary to accepted doctrine, John Wyclif taught
that the true church was
"invisible," made up of only
the elect of God and that no visible church or its officers can control
entrance or exclude membership.
John Wycliffe taught that salvation did
not depend on connection with the visible church or the priesthood, but on a
direct relationship to God.
John Wycliffe taught that priests and
bishops should be held in esteem, not because of their position, only if their
character presented a moral model.

"The Roman Catholic have, with great adroitness, drawn three
walls round themselves.

have affirmed and maintained that the temporal power has no jurisdiction over
them, but, on the contrary, that the spiritual power is above the temporal.
Secondly, if it were proposed to admonish them with the Scriptures,
they objected that no one may interpret the Scriptures but the Pope.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new philosophical ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that
the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged 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 mystery school aptly named The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie - 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
that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie 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
banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military
entertainment complex of America and is responsible for the collapse of morals,
the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global
ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation 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 mass
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.
