The Literal Physical Truth of the New Testament

On refuting a primitive and simplistic notion of God

The spirit of the Creator and Sustainer is upon me; the Creator has appointed me to preach the the Word of the Creator and Sustainer to the spiritually corrupt; the Creator has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, announce the captives shall be released and the blind shall awaken, that the downtrodden shall be freed from their oppressors, and that the Creator is ready to give Life to all who come to her.

"Heaven can be entered only through the narrow gate!

The path to spiritual corruption is broad, and the gate is wide enough for all the multitudes who choose the path of spiritual corruption.

Gateway to Life is small, and the way is narrow, and only a few ever find it."

"Modern New Testament scholarship has shown that we know far less
about the historical Jesus than we thought we did." - Karen Armstrong

All Christian documents in existence before the 4th century are on papyrus.

Papyrus is fragile, only fragments of these works have been preserved.

Before the invention of the printing press all documents had to be copied by hand, a laborious process that invited variations: misspellings, altered wording, grammatical corrections, stylistic improvements, insertions, omissions, etc.

Many New Testament versions have marginal notes added.

These marginalia were often copied into the main text of later versions.

No two New Testaments written before the 15th century are identical !

20th century versions of the New Testament are primarily based on parchment uncial codices of the 4th through the 9th century.

Many of the earliest of these, like Sinaiticus, have undergone extensive "correction" by later scribes.

parchment uncial codices of the 4th through the 9th century

5th century Codex Alexandrinus is largely an Alexandrian witness and the oldest text of the Gospels.

A passage - "All things came into being through him; and apart from him no single thing came into being. In him was life; and the life was the light of men."

5th to 7th century Codex Washingtonensis or Codex Freerianus paleographers have deduced that the original scribe corrected some of his own errors, followed by another who made revisions. Finally, two later hands made a few additional changes.

Codex Washingtonensis is variegated in its representation and believed to be copied from one that had been pieced together out of fragments of several manuscripts. Readings representative of all of the major text types can be found in this manuscript.

A passage - "All things came into being through him; and apart from him no single thing came into being. What has come into being in him (is or was) life. And the life was the light of humanity."

6th century Codex Bezae: the left hand page is the Greek and the right hand side is Latin. As many as nine correctors worked on the manuscript between the sixth and twelfth century.

"All things came into being through him; and apart from him nothing came into being. What has come into being in him is life. And the life was the light of humanity."

9th century Alcuin of York during the reign of Charlemagne attempts to purify the corrupted text. This correction is the basis for the Paris edition that was widely disseminated among the clergy in northwestern Europe.

12th or 13th century Codex 666 reads as follows:

A passage - "All things came into being through him; and apart from him no single thing came into being that has come into being. In him was life; and the life was the light of men."
Corrected passage - "All things came into being through him; and apart from him no single thing came into being. What has come into being was life in him; and the life was the light of men."

15th century Printing press reaches Europe.

The Vulgate, produced by Johannes Gensfleisch zur Laden zum Gutenberg, is not entirely without error as several editions of the first printed work vary.


the 66 books that make up the Bible where written at different times in history, in different languages;

some are compilations of earlier myths while others synthesize myths of neighboring cultures;

The choice of the 66 books included in the Bible at the Council of Rome shift the subconscious image of the Creator from Nature to the State.


The Septuagint is the Greek translation named 'according to the seventy' for the group of Hebrew scholars that translated the Hebrew scripture into Greek.

The Septuagint found widespread use in Hellenistic culture as well as Jerusalem which had become a cosmopolitan city.

Several factors finally led most Hebrews to abandon the Septuagint including:

Christians favored the Septuagint;

Greek scribes were not subject to the same rigid rules imposed on Hebrew scribes;

gradual decline of the Greek language among Hebrews after they flee the Greek-speaking Roman Empire into the Aramaic-speaking Persian Empire when Jerusalem is destroyed by the Romans.

95 AD The Hebrew historian Josephus canonical list of sacred Hebrew scriptures has three parts: five books of the Torah, thirteen books of the prophets, and four books of hymns.

Sapiential Books or Books of Wisdom is a term used in biblical studies to refer to a subset of the books in the Septuagint version.

There are seven of these books, namely the books of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, the Book of Wisdom, the Song of Songs (Song of Solomon), and Sirach.

The Testament of Job is a book written in the 1st century BC.

The author of Wisdom of Solomon was an Alexandrian Jew during the silent persecution initiated in Egypt under Caesar Augustus.

The Wisdom of Sirach is a work of ethical teachings written by the Jewish scribe Shimon ben Yeshua ben Eliezer ben Sira of Jerusalem approximately 175 BC.

Ecclesiastes includes the presence of Persian loan-words and Aramaisms which point to a date no earlier than 450 BC and no later than 180 BC, when Eliezer ben Sira quotes from it.

The early Christian Church used the Septuagint since most of its earliest members were Greek-speaking and because the Messianic passages most clearly pointed to Jesus as the Messiah.

When Jerome of Stridon began the translation of the Vulgate into Latin he started with the Septuagint.

Even when Latin, Syriac, Coptic, Armenian and other translations appeared, the Septuagint continued to be used by the Greek-speaking portion of the Christian Church.

Scribes of the New Testament, also written in Greek, quoted from the Septuagint frequently, though not exclusively, when relating prophesies and history from the Septuagint.

The Eastern Orthodox Church still prefers to use the Septuagint as the basis for translating the Old Testament into other languages, and the Greek Orthodox Church (which has no need for translation) continues to use it in its liturgy even today.

Many modern Catholic translations of the Bible, while using the Masoretic text as their basis, employ the Septuagint to decide between different possible translations of the Hebrew text whenever the latter is unclear, corrupt, or ambiguous.

The Greek of the Septuagint has many idioms and phrases based on Hebrew, and the grammatical phenomenon known as attraction is common there.

Some parts of it have been described as "Hebrew in Greek words".

However, other sections show an ignorance of Hebrew idiom, so that the literal translation provided makes little sense.

The translators usually, but not always, employed one and the same Greek word for one Hebrew word whenever it occurs.

Thus the Septuagint can be called a mostly concordant translation.

However, as in most translations of any literary work, often more than one Hebrew word gets translated into one and the same Greek word, removing some nuance from the text.

382 Emperor Theodosius I orders Jerome of Stridon under the direction of Pope Damasus I and the Council of Rome to produce the Latin Vulgate.

The Vulgate is written in everyday Latin, versio vulgata, as opposed to Ciceronian Latin of which Jerome of Stridon was a master.

Roman Catholicism united Western Europe, under the Pope, for over a thousand years until Martin Luther translates the Bible into German.

The closest equivalent in English to the Latin Vulgate is the King James Version which shows a marked influence from the Vulgate in the vigorous rhythm of its prose and poetry.

The Vulgate, designed to be easier to understand, was directly translated from Hebrew rather than the Greek Septuagint.

Jerome of Stridon was responsible for at least three slightly different versions of the Vulgate.

The Romana Vulgate was the first, soon replaced by later versions except in Britain, where it continued to be used until the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The Gallicana Vulgate was produced a few years later with revisions.

The Hispana Vulgate is largely identical to the Romana Vulgate except for the book of Psalms, which Jerome of Stridon translated from the Hebrew for this version.

Old Latin Vulgate

The Latin Bible used before the Vulgate is usually referred to as the Vetus Latina, or Old Latin Bible, or occasionally the Old Latin Vulgate.

The Old Latin Vulgate remained in use in some circles even after the Vulgate translation of Jerome of Stridon became the accepted standard throughout the Roman Catholic Church.

Gauls continued to prefer the Old Latin Vulgate for centuries.

The Old Latin Vulgate was not translated by a single individual or institution, nor even uniformly edited. Each book varies in quality of translation and style.

The Old Latin Vulgate books were translated from Greek, not from the Hebrew Septuagint as each book varies in quality of translation and style.


Church of Rome strives to refute the doctrines of Protestantism, the Vulgate is reaffirmed in the Council of Trent as the sole authorized text of the Bible.

To reinforce this declaration, an attempt is made to standardize the spelling and overall text of the Vulgate out of the countless editions written during the Middle Ages.

1590 Pope Sixtus V (1585-90) produces the Sistine Vulgate.

1592 Clement VIII (1592-1605) produces the Clementine Vulgate which has been the official Bible of the Roman Catholic Church until the 1960s, when worship in vernacular languages was first permitted.

1907 Nova Vulgata commissioned in by Pope Pius X of the Benedictine Monastery in Rome, though many decades would pass before it would be completed.

The main difference between the Nova Vulgata and the Vulgata Clementina is that it takes account of the modern textual criticism.

There are a number of changes where the modern scholars felt that Jerome of Stridon had failed to grasp the meaning of the original languages.

Spelling reflects a more Classical leaning than the Renaissance spelling of the Clementine edition.

Nova Vulgata does not contain some books found in some editions of the Vulgate - for example the 3rd and 4th Book of Ezra.

The Nova Vulgata is currently the official Latin version published and approved by the Roman Catholic Church.

The Nova Vulgata has not been widely embraced by conservative Catholics, as it sounds unfamiliar compared to the Clementine, a fact common in the history of the Bible as new translations attempt to supplant older, more familiar ones.

The Stuttgart Vulgate is published by the German BibleSociety (Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft), based in Stuttgart.

In this edition, Biblia Sacra Vulgata, the German BibleSociety seeks to reproduce the original, pure Vulgate text that Jerome of Stridon produced 1,600 years ago.

The Stuttgart Vulgate attempts, through critical comparison of important, historical editions of the Vulgate, to achieve the original text, cleansed of the errors of a millennium and a half's time.

The main critical source for the Stuttgart Vulgate is Codex Amiatinus, the highly-esteemed 8th century, one-volume manuscript of the whole Latin Bible produced in England, regarded as the best medieval witness to original text of Jerome of Stridon.

Was Jesus a Therapeutae?

Depending on your point of view, one of the beauties or one of the problems with the Bible is that, by carefully picking and choosing your passages, you can get anything you want out of it.

Using passages from the canonical gospels, scholars, theologians, and lay alike have 'proven' that Jesus was a Pharisee, an Essene, a revolutionary Zaddikim intent on overthrowing Roman occupation, a Kabbalist, a Marxist, a Taoist and even a supply-side Republican.

Of course others have also found passages to repudiate all of these assertions and prove that Jesus of Nazareth wore three hats - Tannaim / Tekton / Therapeutae and dined with the Essenes.

Over time, as we all know, everything decays or becomes corrupt.

This would have been the case with 1) the original sayings of Jesus, 2) the original writings about Jesus and 3) the copies of texts of Jesus' teaching.

We have no way of knowing exactly what changes were made and what was added to the original texts dealing with Jesus but research suggests that the original texts were simply the statements and sermons of Jesus which were later elaborated upon.

Thousands of men spent their entire lives redefining the religion which we now call "Christianity."

There was much debate about authorship and actuality as opposed to what was heretical even in the first century after the birth of Jesus.

The process of narrative selection gradually evolved, and even the Bible itself tells us that what we currently have is not the full story or a complete image.

One generation removed from the living Jesus gnostic thought began to build Mystery upon the evolving legend of Jesus the Tekton.

Mystical Gnosticism is simply a religion of redemption - wisdom of truth gained through the coupling of experience with knowledge.

Once the Legend of the Narzarine became widespread Gnostikos universally heralded Jesus the Tekton as the One who brought the Knowledge of Truth.

"In Gnostic terms the body's site of power has been referred to as those of the 'sleepers' and 'wakers.' The 'sleepers' being those whose conscious self has yet to break through the layers of the body's social conditioning. The spiritual-somatic experience has been seen as a threat to hierarchical societies because it exists beyond their bounds of power. This is one reason why ecstatic experiences - whether through spiritual or other means - have been suppressed, outlawed, and discredited by religions and mainstream institutions alike. Ecstatic experiences that can break down human thinking patterns and conditioning structures are unnerving for institutions of social-political power. How can you control, regulate, and discipline a body/energy/experience that has no physical location?" - Kingsley L. Dennis

Faith in True Knowledge,

the TRUTH,

is the Foundation of Enlightenment.

Titus Flavius Clemens
Clement of Alexandria

Clemens used the term 'gnostic' to describe anyone who had penetrated deeper into the Gnostic Mysteries .

Clemens saw sin as involuntary and irrational - removed only through the wisdom of the Logos.

Clemens states in Paedagogus that only through conversion to Christianity can man fully participate in the Logos, which is Universal Truth.

He suggests that Christ is neither male or female, and God the Father has both male and female aspects: the Eucharist is described as milk from the breast (Christ) of the Father.

Clemens argues that both promiscuity and sexual abstinence are unnatural, and that the main goal of human sexuality is procreation.

In an attempt to demonstrate the primacy of Moses, Clemens gives an extended chronology of the world, wherein he dates the birth of Christ to 25 April or May, 4-2 BC, and the creation of the world to 5592 BC.

To Clemens, scripture is an innately true primitive philosophy which is complemented by human reason through the Logos.

Clemens condemns those who actively seek out a martyr's death, arguing that they do not have sufficient respect for the gift of life.

Clemens exhibits extensive knowledge of both Hellenism and Judaism.

Titus Flavius Clemens emphasized the permanent importance of the use of philosophy to understand the relation between knowledge and faith.

As faith involves a comprehensive knowledge of the essentials, knowledge allows the believer to penetrate deeply into the understanding of what he actually believes and by so doing perfect his faith.

In order to attain the "Faith of Knowledge," to find the Truth, which is so much higher than the mere "faith of conjecture," or simple reception of a truth on authority, philosophy is permanently necessary.

To judge those who professed esoteric knowledge or the Truth all that was needed, Titus Flavius Clemens argued correctly, check to see if they lived a moral life which was the test of real wisdom.

Against anti-intellectual pietists, Clemens championed the ideal of spiritual enlightenment.

Gnosis, communion with the Father, could be held by common Christians.

Clemens characterization of the real Christian as an intellectual whose life is a moral example for others influenced the development of the monastic ideal but Clemens was against youth become aesthetics

During the persecution of Alexandrian Christians, Titus Flavius Clemens found refuge in Jerusalem.

Although Clemens believed himself to have experienced the Lumière Infinie that is unlikely as he was focused on faith rather than Gnosis.

Gnostikos philosophers, in touch with the Lumière Infinie, never spoke about Christ Consciousness as something that required faith.

Titus Flavius Clemens was succeeded at Alexandria by Origen.

The Roman Catholics attempted early on to stamp out any train of thought, to destroy all branches of the Gnostic mysteries and destroy any text of the religion of Christ which did not strictly adhere to Roman Catholic dogma which continued to evolve.

After the gnostic confrontation and until the Reformation, the Roman Catholic Church was the overwhelmingly dominant force in Christianity.

The rigid, entrenched mentality of Catholic orthodoxy must be taken into account in any reasonable examination of the Christian religion.

Schisms, dissensions, and new ideas were crushed by a pronouncement of spiritual death (excommunication) or physical death ( inquisition/crusade).

Dogma is not to be challenged; dogma is inflexible to change:

God is supernatural (outside of nature); God is three-in-one, (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit); God requires humans to worship him as a human Emperor (descended God) on Earth is worshiped; that something called the soul (which exists outside of nature) is condemned by God to a place called hell unless one believes in and follows the religious dogma of whichever sect or cult one has joined or been born into; that to some, belief in their sect or cults religious dogma guarantees one a secure position in the nether realm of heaven; that to others good works and belief are necessary to gain admission to heaven, and that to still others good works, belief and a following of religious law is the only way to gain admission to heaven.

"All rational creatures in the natural order have free will."


The Roman Catholic Church needed then and needs now
to control the information made available to the public about Jesus.

Without a uniform dogmatized religion the Roman Catholics realized they would lose control of adherents.

It was from this Roman Catholic Church that the ultimate lists of approved, canonical, and heretical texts issued.

Even within what is now the Roman Catholic Church there has always been dissension.

The order of creation of the Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke was debated and revised.

The Gospel of John was considered heretical and was added later.

Revelation was considered heretical and then added later.

The first commentary made on the Gospel of John was by the gnostics Ptolemy and Heracleon, as quoted by Irenaeus and Origen.

Ptolemy and Heracleon were Gnostikos disciples of Valentinus the Gnostic.

According to Tertullian, Valentinus, a rejected candidate for bishop of Rome, founded a Gnostic mystery school in Rome.

Valentinus taught that there were three kinds of people.

These were the spiritual, psychic, and material.

Those of a material nature were doomed to perish.

Those of a psychic or emotional nature could attain a lesser form of salvation.

Only those of a spiritual nature received gnosis (knowledge) that allowed them to return to the divine Pleroma after inhabiting a material human body.

The Gospel of John is a highly intellectual account of Jesus' life which would have required a good level of education and was most likely penned by John the Presbyter (priest) as opposed to John the Apostle who was an uneducated fisherman.

John the Presbyter most likely penned Revelation as well.

Irenaeus insisted there could be only one orthodox (literally, "straight-thinking") church outside of which "there was no salvation."

Christian writers before 150 years after the birth of Jesus do not generally refer to any document (including the canonical gospels) as their source for Jesus' sayings.

The Synoptic Gospels were originally anonymous, and decisions of authorship came about in the 2nd century based on legend.

1st century Christianity follows the Hebrew tradition of being practiced initially as a cultural Oral Tradition.

There are several references to the "Words of Jesus".

Early collections of sayings are more than likely, fragments still exist.

Nicene Creed

325 Anno Domini A new state religion, Pauline Christianity codified as the 'official' form of Christianity, protected and promoted by Constantine, is formalized, as "Nicene Christianity" at the Council of Nicaea.

You could become a Christian layman through baptism but you could only be a Christian clergyman, initially by being born into the group.

Roman Catholics had to abandon the right of being birthed into the Church as there was not enough layman being born to support the clergy.

The Nicene Creed solved this problem by the decree that after ordination a priest could not marry (prefigures the pedophilia?) with the likely conclusive theory that Constantine wanted to reign in the power of the priests.

352 Council of Laodicea decrees women are not to be ordained.

385 Pope Siricius leaves his wife in order to become pope and then decrees that priests may no longer sleep with their wives.

391 Council of Rome, authorized by imperial sanction in the Theodosian decrees in both the Eastern and Western Roman Empire makes it a capital offense to practice in form of religion accept Nicene Christianity as expounded at the Council of Rome or Judaism. Both groups consisted of "chosen ones".

You can only be a Jew if your mother is a Jew so being a Jew is race based.

The Gospel of Thomas was one of the gospels that did not make the final cut and is a collection of over one hundred statements made by Jesus. Although it is known to be a corrupted text, as it was transcribed from Greek to Coptic, about half of the sayings have direct parallels to sayings recorded in the canonical gospels, and much of the other half can be linked theologically to the rest of the New Testament.

The existence of the Gospel of Thomas has been known to scholars since the origins of Christianity, but no copies were known to have survived any of the puritanical purges.

The work is mentioned by the early Roman Catholic Church fathers in a negative manner.

Throughout the text of the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus offers numerous ways to attain the Kingdom of Heaven.

This makes redemption a personal thing and bypasses the need for a priest or an organized church hierarchy.

From an orthodox Catholic standpoint, the Gospel of Thomas would have been dangerously thought provoking.

Around 233, Origen, mentions the Gospel of Thomas on a list of Coptic gospels. In 1952 it was established that Papyrus 1 and 655 were also fragments of the Gospel of Thomas.

The Gospel of Thomas was never cannonized and was found to be heretical because it encourages the reader to think for himself!

Origen was the most prolific and influential Christian writer prior to the legalization of Christianity by Rome.

Origen was responsible for the intellectual triumph of Catholic Christianity over the gnostic and pagan cults of Christianity.

Origen distinguished between different types of biblical interpretation, historical, moral and spiritual, and argued that biblical works were primarily theological compositions.

This forged real problems of interpretation at the historical and moral levels and because of this Origen was condemned as a heretic by the Roman Catholic Church a century after his death.

Origen, who had declared the Son was separate from and less than the Father, had a follower in Eusebius of Caesarea.

The Roman Catholic Church has always fought against those who would use the path of knowledge to attain the Kingdom of Heaven; claiming that the path to heaven lies in unquestioning faith in precepts and pronouncements of the Roman Catholic Church.

This is also true of many of religious cults.

The First Council of Nicaea, held in Nicaea in Bithynia, convoked by the Imperial Roman Emperor Constantine in 325, was the first ecumenical conference of bishops of the Roman Catholic Church, and resulted in the first uniform Christian doctrine.

"Many like the holy apostles, bore in their bodies the marks of the Lord Jesus Christ. Paul, Bishop of Neo-Cæsarea, a fortress situated on the bank of the Euphrates, had been deprived of the use of both hands by the application of a red-hot iron. Some had had the right eye torn out, others had lost the right arm. In short, it was an assembly of martyrs." - Theodoret, speaking of the assembled bishops previous trials and tribulations under Emperor Diocletian

"He said that the crimes of priests ought not to be made known to the multitude, lest they should become an occasion of offence or of sin. He also said, that, if he had detected a bishop in the very act of committing adultery, he would have thrown his imperial robe over the unlawful deed." - Eusebius speaking of the Emperor Constantine's opening speech

With the creation of the Nicene Creed, a precedent was established for subsequent 'general (ecumenical) councils of Bishops' (Synods) to create statements of belief and canons of doctrinal orthodoxy - the intent being to create unity of belief for the whole of Christendom.

The primary purpose of the council was to resolve disagreements in the Church of Alexandria over the nature of Jesus in relationship to the Father; in particular, whether Jesus was of the same or merely of similar substance as God the Father.

Alexander of Alexandria and Athanasius took the first position; the popular presbyter Arius, from whom the term Arian controversy comes, took the second.

1,800 bishop were invited, 300 attended, the huge majority from the Eastern church.

The council decided against the Arians overwhelmingly.

The council also decided in favor of celebrating the date of the Christian Passover on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the Vernal Equinox.

"Athanasius, who succeeded Alexander as bishop in 328, was a violent, vengeful man, but he shaped the future of the church when his side won the theological war that was raging.

His adversaries, who were many, charged him with bribery, theft, extortion, sacrilege, treason and murder.

He was excommunicated, anathematized, beaten, intimidated, kidnapped, imprisoned, and exiled no less than five times by four Roman emperors, spending 17 of the 45 years he served as Bishop of Alexandria in exile.

Athanasius also thought that only a strong God, a strong Church, and a strong empire could provide people with the security they craved." - Ed Taylor

Athanasius maintained that God transformed himself into a man, suffered, died, and then resurrected himself.

"While Athanasius accused the Arians of demeaning Christ to the point that his majesty and saving power were lost, the Arians accused Athanasius of elevating him to the point that his love and God’s majesty were lost."- Ed Taylor

Constantine, Empire builder, agreed with Athanasius’ perspective.

Jesus said, "BANG !"

"The essential feature of that creed (Nicene) was the safeguard against any denial of the Son's divinity which, it provided, through the explicit statement that the Son is homoousion, or consubstantial, with the Father; not of an essence dissimilar to that of the Father, or even of an essence merely similar, but of the same essence. Only two of the assembled bishops, Theonas and Secundus, persistently refused to sign; and these were excommunicated and banished, together with Arius. Eusebius of Nicomedia and Theognis, while they subscribed the creed, refused to sanction the sentence against Arius. For this cause they were deposed and banished shortly after the adjournment of the council, but ere long were restored and regarded by Constantine with favor." - History of the Christian Church by Henry C. Sheldon of Boston University, Thomas Y. Crowell and Company, New York ©1895

The First Council of Nicaea was historically significant because it was the first effort to attain consensus in the fellowship of Christ through an assembly representing institutionalized Christendom. With the creation of the Nicene Creed, a precedent was established for subsequent general councils to create a statement of belief and canons of doctrinal orthodoxy hoping to create a textual source that would unify Christendom.

"Persistent attempts were made to poison the mind of Constantine against the most able champion of the Nicene Creed, namely, Athanasius, who had become Bishop of Alexandria shortly after the adjournment of the council. Slanderous charges were urged, and finally had their desired effect (336) in securing the banishment of the cold-hearted bishop. Meanwhile, Arius had been recalled from banishment and restored to imperial favor, since he succeeded in convincing Constantine of his substantial agreement with the Nicene formula, and declared upon oath that he did not hold the faith for which he had been condemned. To complete his triumph and that of his friends, it only remained that he should formally be restored to church fellowship." - Henry C. Sheldon

Unfortunately that did not happen as Arius was poisoned through the machinations of Athanasius and he was "deprived both of communion and of life."

After Emperor Constantine came Emperor Julian, Constantine's nephew, a philosopher and the last pagan Emperor. Following Emperor Julian came Emperor Valentinian who sent his brother Emperor Valens to rule in the East.

"The tyrannical pressure of Constantius drove the Nicene party into the shade, and caused not a few instances of defection within its ranks. But unflinching advocates still sustained its cause. Athanasius, in particular, was unmoved by the storm of adversity, and his ardor was in no wise cooled by his repeated experience of banishment. The victory, therefore, had already been prepared for orthodoxy when the second ecumenical council assembled at Constantinople, in the year 381, under the auspices of the Emperor Theodosius. By that council the Nicene Creed was successfully re-affirmed. Arianism appeared thereafter as a vanquished foe, and found little place except among certain of the barbarian tribes, in whose midst it maintained itself till the sixth century. " - Henry C. Sheldon

Creator Sustainer Council

In conclusion,

the books of New Testament where chosen by the Roman Catholics to be the 'Word of God' and any writing that did not fall within the dogma of the Imperial State Religion of Holy Roman Catholic Church was destroyed.

Most of the historical texts that could have shed light on what actually occurred when Jesus walked on the Earth and what Jesus actually said were destroyed for the sole purpose of elevating the Holy Roman Catholic Church to the position of intercessor to God.

The Holy Roman Catholic Church defined the religion of Christainity by defining the books that would be included in the Bible.

The truth is this:

Jesus' original works were in words not in writing.

Many different men, with many different opinions, wrote down the oral accounts of the works, words and life of Jesus embellishing and refining as they saw fit according to their own belief system, a system always unique to the individual believer.

If we understand that spiritual corruption is real we can learn to walk with God by understanding the Bible as a metaphorical allegorical amalgamated guide for living embedded in a marvelous art work.

With this understanding we can respect every living thing God has brought into creation for what it is: the Spirit of God animating inanimate matter.

If you see life as a horrible, ugly thing then you have entirely missed the message of Jesus' word that Jesus gave his life to bring to you.

Jesus reminds us the attitude we have when living our lives is what saddles us with our own personal hell or showers us with our own personal heaven.

Redemption frees the soul in this life, right now, as opposed to some mythical afterlife that has never been shown to actually exist in reality.

Redemption comes from understanding one's own weakness' and working to correct those weakness'.

Jesus accepts everyone !

Jesus' message has always been a message of tolerance, forgiveness, compassion, redemption and salvation.

Ego must forgive Self for its imperfections as much as Ego must forgive others that trespass against Ego to free Ego from detrimental emotions.

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 spiritual corruption 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 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 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.
