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 and Sustainer has appointed me to preach the Creator and Sustainer's word to the spiritually corrupt; the Creator and Sustainer 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 and Sustainer is ready to give Life to all who come to IT.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your Eternal Soul.

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."


"This is the first and greatest admonishment:

Adore the Creator with all your heart, soul, and mind.

The second most important is similar:

Care for your neighbor as you care about yourself.

All the other admonishments and all the admonishments of the prophets stem from these two laws and are fulfilled if you obey them. Keep only these and you will find that you are obeying all the others."


"Humble men are fortunate for God's word is given to them.

Those who grieve are fortunate for they shall be comforted.

The meek and lowly are fortunate for the whole Earth belongs to them.

Content are those who long to be just, for they shall be completely satisfied.

Content are the compassionate and merciful, for they shall be shown mercy.

Content are those whose hearts are pure, for they shall see God.

Content are those who strive for peace they shall be called the sons of God."


"Heaven can be entered only through the narrow gate! The path to spiritual corruption is broad, and its gate is wide enough for all the multitudes who choose the way of spiritual corruption. The gateway to Life is small, and the way is narrow, and only a few ever find it."



blind mind

"Woe to the creatures which see and know not what they see,
which stand and know not upon what they stand."
Tract Hagiga, Chapter II


"Lift now the lid of the jar of heaven.
Close those eyes that see only faults,
Open those that contemplate the invisible."
Rumi


blinders

"Why worry about the small things in the eye of a brother when your eyes can not see ?

Should you say, 'brother, let me help you get the small things out of your eye,' when you have no vision?'

Hypocrite!

Remove the blinders from your eyes, then you can see to help your brother."


stone foundation

"All who listen to my instructions and follow them are wise, like a man who builds his house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents, and the floods rise and the storm winds beat against his house, it won't collapse, for it is built on solid rock. But those who hear my instructions and ignore them are foolish, like a man who builds his house on shifting sand. For when the rains and floods come, and storm winds beat against his house, it will fall with a mighty crash."

"Beware of the teachers of religion !

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

"Beware of false 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 type of fruit produced. Not all who sound religious are. They may refer to me as 'Lord,' but still won't find the Kingdom of Heaven, for the decisive question is whether they live by the Law of God ."

Authentic or counterfeit?
How would you recognize counterfeit Christianity?

Unknown Source - Where does the message come from?

Is the message acturately sourced or is it based on fanciful imaginative concepts and positive thinking?

Divergent Message - What is the substance of the message?

For the true teacher, Christ is central. You will recognize them by the spiritual fruit of their lives.

Disparte Position - In what position will the message leave you?

The true teacher teaches the acolyte how to escape the spiritual corruption of the Veil of Cognitive Blindness while the counterfeit teacher points a distracting finger and says "look over there!"

Peculiar Character - What kind of people does the message produce?

The true teacher edifyingly pursues goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and compassion. The counterfeit teacher is marked by ignorarrogance, prejudice and slander and his flock will act and think like him.

Different Appeal - Why should you listen to the message?

The true teacher appeals to heart in an attempt to awaken compassion and reveal the methods the counterfeit teacher uses to appeal to the animal material side of human nature. The counterfeit teacher asks, "What do people want to hear?

Multicolored Fruit - What result does the message have in people's lives?

The true teacher is effective and productive in his or her knowledge of Jesus Christ while the counterfeit is "like a spring without water." They promise much but produce little. Is the fruit organic and full of life or is it GMO and marked with death?

Direction - Where does the message ultimately lead you?

The true teacher will elevate your understanding of reality while the counterfeit will attempt to confuse your understanding. Here we find the most disturbing contrast of all. The true teacher points you at the door you have to walk through while the conterfeit opens a door into his imaginative conceptual construct, grabs you by the pants and roughly shoves you through the door slamming it shut and trapping you in a false reality.


charlatan extra soft

symptoms of false teaching:

Be wary of zeal. Showmanship may hide lack of substance.

Be wary of credentials. They are not proof of knowledge, understanding or wisdom.

Be wary of novelty. Is this novelty part of a natural evolving understanding or is it just new words clothing old dead concepts ?

Be wary of sensational entertaining worship and look for the inward invisible work of the Creator and Sustainer within the hearts of the flock.

Be honest in appraisal and judgement. Don't put the blinders on!

False understanding starts incrementally and grows as more layers of the Veil of Cognitive Blindness are added over time.

Avoid the mental contagion of the crowd - a superficial readiness to believe anyone who talks cleverly and earnestly.

Avoid ingnorarrognace and reject the false hypothesis that those good at rhetoric are honest !



sow

"A farmer went out to his field to sow grain. As he scattered the seed on the earth, some of it fell on a footpath and was trampled on; and the birds came and ate it as it lay exposed. other seed fell on shallow soil with rock beneath. This seed began to grow, but soon withered and died for lack of moisture. other seed landed in thistle patches, and the young grain stalks were soon choked out. Still other fell on fertile soil; this seed grew and produced a crop one hundred times as large as he had planted. If anyone has listening ears, use them now!"

"The seed is God's word to men. The hard path where some seed fell represents the hard hearts of those who hear, but then spiritual corruption comes and steals God's word away and prevents people from believing and finding salvation. The stony earth represents those who enjoy listening to sermons, but somehow God's word never really gets through to them and doesn't take root and grow. They know that God's word is true, and sort of believe for awhile; but when the hot winds of persecution blow, they lose interest. The seed among the thorns represents those who listen and believe God's word but whose faith afterwards is choked out by worry and riches and the responsibilities and pleasures of life. And so they are never able to help anyone else to believe God's word. The fertile soil represents honest, good hearted people. They listen to and cling to them and steadily spread them to others who also soon believe God's word."

"If, as my disciples , you give even a cup of cold water to a little child, you will surely be rewarded. All that is now hidden will some day 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."

"Who ever heard of someone lighting a lamp and then covering it up to keep it from shining? No, lamps are mounted in the open where they can be seen. This illustrates the fact that some day everything shall be brought to light and made plain to all. So be careful how you listen; for whoever has, to him shall be given more; and whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has shall be taken away from him."


knock and the door will be opened

"Ask,
and you will be given what you ask for.

Seek,
and you will find.

Knock,
and the door will be opened.

For everyone who asks, receives.

Anyone who seeks, finds.

If only you will knock, the door will open."


Jesus called - he wants his religion back

Literal Physical Truth of the New Testament

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

The New Testament did not fall out of the sky a complete book. The books of the New Testament were not all written at the same time, were not necessarily written in the order they appear nor were they even originally written in the same language.

All Christian documents in existence from before the 4th century are on papyrus. Since 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 all kinds of 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 invented. The Vulgate, as produced by Gutenberg, is not entirely without mistakes as the several editions of the first printed work vary one from the other.



Oral Tradition

Initially the Hebrews resisted the writing down of Mosiac Law. It was understood that the Oral Tradition was less likely to have ponerological elements inserted through the evolution of the definitions of words. The tradition was to teach each child orally all that had been previously revealed as the work of the hand of God.

This was the tradition of Jesus the Tannaim who taught using the Oral Tradition.

Hebrew attitudes toward translations of Hebrew scripture evolved over time.

When Alexander the III of Macedonia conquered Egypt he introduced Hellenism which swept the world up along with Alexander. Ptolomy added Hellenistic elements to the evolved Heliopolitan mythology, particularly when he brought the stolen stone idol to Eygpt.

By the time of the birth of Jesus the Hebrews of Alexandria had built a scriptural edifice now known as the Old Testament which was later translated into the Greek Septuagint.

2nd century BC Readings in the synagogues must be interpreted from Hebrew into Aramaic for the local people to understand. A later Talmudic injunction by Rabbi Simon ben Gamaliel said that Greek was the only language into which the Torah could be accurately translated.



Septuagint

The Septuagint is the Greek translation named 'according to the seventy' for the group of Hebrew scholars that translated the Old Testament 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:
Greek scribes were not subject to the same rigid rules imposed on Hebrew scribes;
Christians favored the Septuagint;
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 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 Saint Jerome started preparation 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 Old Testament.

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.

Vulgate

382 Emperor Theodosius I orders Saint Jerome 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 Saint Jerome was a master.

The bedrock of Roman Catholicism is Saint Jerome's Vulgate. Roman Catholicism united Western Europe, under the Pope, for over a thousand years until Martin Luther translated the Bible into German in 1530 AD.

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.

Saint Jerome 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 Saint Jerome 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 Saint Jerome's Vulgate became the accepted standard throughout the Western 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 Old Testament books were most likely translated from the Greek Septuagint, not from the Hebrew as each book varies in quality of translation and style.


Reformation

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 Saint Jerome 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 Saint Jerome 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 Saint Jerome's original text.




listen to understand

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 supply-side Republican, and even a Taoist. (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 the original writings about Jesus. The written texts that now exist were not written by apostles of Jesus but rather were 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 who wrote what and what was true as opposed to what was heretical even in the first century after the birth of Jesus. The process of selection and status 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 myth of Jesus the Tekton.

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

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

The Gnostic universally heralded Jesus the Tekton as the one who brought recognition of Knowledge of the 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

Titus Flavius Clemens

Titus Flavius Clemens, Clement of Alexandria, succeeded his mentor, Pantaenus, as head of the catechetical school at Alexandria to become the intellectual leader of the Christian community in Alexandria, Egypt for the last two decades of the 2nd century after the birth of Jesus.

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, Clement of Alexandria championed the ideal of spiritual enlightenment. Titus Flavius Clemens characterization of the real Christian as an intellectual whose life is a moral example for others influenced the development of the monastic ideal.

During the persecution of Alexandrian Christians, Titus Flavius Clemens found refuge in Jerusalem. Titus Flavius Clemens was succeeded at Alexandria by his brilliant protégé, 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 Christian religion which did not strictly adhere to Roman Catholic dogma.

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.)

This dogma was and 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."
Origen

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

Without a uniform religion the 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 Synoptic Gospels, Gospel of Matthew, Gospel of Mark and Gospel of Luke, order of creation 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. 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 Synoptics 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 primarily as an oral cultural tradition.

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

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


jesus i am

During the Axial Age scribbling down verbal utterances of the Oral Tradition - axioms, adages and proverbs - of Akhenaten, Lao Tze, Siddhartha Gautama, Zoroaster, Moshe Rabbenu, Pythagoras became widespread with the use of written language.

The Gospel of Thomas, which was discovered less than a century ago, is evidence that such collections originally did exist.

The idea that the Greek gospels are based on primitive collection of sayings (Greek: logia) goes back to the very first commentary on the gospels. Early in the 2nd century after the birth of Jesus, Papias reported that Matthew compiled the logia of Christ which others interpreted as best they could. Papias penned, a 5 volume commentary on the sayings of Jesus from the accounts of second generation church leaders, labeled an Exposition of the Oracles of the Lord.

The Exposition of the Oracles of the Lord to this date provide the earliest record of the composition of the gospels. Papias' work is among the many texts claimed to be known to ancient Christians that were destroyed by the Roman Catholic Church.

From a fragment from the Exposition of the Oracles of the Lord by Papias we learn that;

Papias affirms that he received the sayings of the apostles from those who accompanied them, and he moreover asserts that he heard with his own ears Aristion and the presbyter John. Papias mentions them frequently by name, and in his writings gives their traditions. Papias relates other miraculous deeds, stating that he acquired the knowledge of them from Oral Tradition.

Papias also relates that he had received a wonderful narrative from the daughters of the Apostle Philip in Hierapolis. Papias relates that a dead man was raised to life in his day. Papias also mentions another miracle relating to Justus, surnamed Barsabas, how Justus swallowed a deadly poison, and received no harm, on account of the grace of Christ.

Papias set down other things as coming to him from unwritten tradition, strange parables and instructions of Jesus - and some other things of a more fabulous nature. One of these predicts that a millennium after the Jesus resurrection from death, when the personal reign of Jesus will be established on this Earth. Papias moreover hands down, in his own writing, other narratives given by the previously mentioned Aristion of Jesus' sayings, and the traditions of the presbyter John.

Papias has given in the following words regarding the Gospel of Mark:

"And the presbyter said this: Mark having become the interpreter of Peter, wrote down accurately whatsoever he remembered. It was not, however, in exact order that he related the sayings or deeds of Jesus. For he neither heard Jesus nor accompanied Him. But afterwards, as I said, he accompanied Peter, who accommodated his instructions to the necessities, but with no intention of giving a regular narrative of Jesus' sayings. Wherefore Mark made no mistake in thus writing some things as he remembered them. For of one thing he took especial care, not to omit anything he had heard, and not to put anything fictitious into the statements."

With regard to the Gospel of Matthew, Papias has made the following statement:

"Matthew put together the oracles in the Hebrew language, and each one interpreted them as best he could. The same writer used proofs from the First Epistle of John, and from the Epistle of Peter in like manner."

Papias also gives another story of a woman who was accused of many sins before Jesus, which is to be found in the Gospel according to the Hebrews.

jesus said "build megachurches !"

History, a chronicle of a conflict,
is written by the winners of the conflict.

In the first few centuries, there were a number of conflicts over which direction the Roman Catholic Church would take. The earliest was Saul of Tarsus, a Hellenized Hebrew converted to the Zaddikim Cult, which already had a supernatural Hebrew Messiah, versus James, the brother of Jesus, also known as James the Just.

Saul of Tarsus, the reformulated "Paul", won out in a largely Hellenized population so it is no surprise the writing of Saul of Tarsus dominates the New Testament.

This form of Christianity is known as Pauline Christianity.

The conversion of Saul of Tarsus into "Paul" can be dated to a couple years after the crucifxion of Jesus of Nazareth, by his reference to it in one of his letters. According to the account in Acts, it took place on the road to Damascus, where he reported having experienced a vision of the resurrected Jesus. The account says that "he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?" Saul replied, "Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest!"In Galatians 1:16 Saul writes that God "was pleased to reveal his son to me." In 1 Corinthians 15:8, as he lists the order in which Jesus appeared to his disciples after his resurrection, Saul writes, "last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also."

Saul was a young Hellenized Hebrew Zaddikim fanatic charged with the execution and the seizure of disciples of Jesus. On the road Saul was struck with the realization that he could mold the evolving legend of Jesus, one of the last Tannaim, using the Zaddikim Messiah with which he had recently become aquainted. Within the Sanhedrin the last remaining elements of a Hasmonean high priest inner circle cult, the Zaddikim, still existed. The Zaddikim were an extremist apocalyptic sect whose stated aim was to invoke the intervention of supernatural powers to establish Israel as a sovereign realm. They had extremist Zealot followers they used a shock troops. And they had the Sicarii leadership.

"His whole state of mind shows the influence of the Gnostic lore of Alexandria, especially the Hermes literature, hence his strange belief in supernatural powers. Throughout Paul's writings an irrational or pathological element could not but repel the disciples of the Rabbis. The conception of a new faith, half pagan and half Jewish, such as Saul preached, and susceptibility to its influences, were altogether foreign to the nature of Jewish life and thought." - Kaufmann Kohler, Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Beth-El, New York

Modern scholars believe that Jesus preached mainly to Hebrews as Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist whose opinions he would have shared. James, as leader of the Jerusalem Church, taught both Aramaic and Greek speakers. Saul of Tarsus, as the 'Apostle to the Gentiles,' made the teaching of Jesus relevant and interesting to the polytheistic Hellenized gentiles.

In order for the fledgling Christianity to gain attention in the Hellenized culture, the religion had to obtain certain characteristics common to the other gods and religions of that time. There was a ready structural model to be found in the State religion of Rome which had adopted the myths of the Greek city states which had been spread throughout the Mediterranean by the Greek colonizers - the best known of which was Alexander III of Macedonia who conquered all cultures from the Ionian Sea to the Himalayas.


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 decreeing that after ordination a priest could not marry (prefigures the pedophilia?).

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 could only be a Jew if your mother was a Jew so being a Jew was 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 context.

Throughout the text of the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus offers numerous ways to attain the kingdom of heaven. This makes redemption a personal thing for the reader 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 created 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.

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 I in 325, was the first ecumenical conference of bishops of the Roman Catholic Church, and resulted in the first uniform Christian doctrine.

Theodoret, speaking of the assembled bishops previous trials and tribulations under Emperor Diocletian, "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 banks 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."

"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.

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



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 iron-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 I 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



66 books

In 381 the Council of Rome, under the authority of Imperial Roman Emperor Theodosius I, concluded with Pope Damasus I issuing the following decree:

"Now, indeed, we must treat of the divine Scriptures: what the universal Catholic Church accepts and what she must shun. The list of the Old Testament begins:

Genesis, one book; Exodus, one book: Leviticus, one book; Numbers, one book; Deuteronomy, one book; Jesus Nave, one book; of Judges, one book; Ruth, one book; Kings, four books; Paralipomenon, two books; One Hundred and Fifty Psalms, one book; of Solomon, three books: Proverbs, one book; Ecclesiastes, one book; Canticle of Canticles, one book; likewise, Wisdom, one book; Ecclesiasticus (Sirach), one book;

Likewise, the list of the prophets: Isaiah, one book; Jeremias, one book; along with Cinoth, that is, his Lamentations; Ezechiel, one book; Daniel, one book; Osee, one book; Amos, one book; Micheas, one book; Joel, one book; Abdias, one book; Jonas, one book; Nahum, one book; Habacuc, one book; Sophonias, one book; Aggeus, one book; Zacharias, one book; Malachias, one book.

Likewise, the list of histories: Job, one book; Tobias, one book; Esdras, two books; Esther, one book; Judith, one book; of Maccabees, two books.

Likewise, the list of the Scriptures of the New and Eternal Testament, which the Holy Catholic Church receives: of the Gospels, one book according to Matthew, one book according to Mark, one book according to Luke, one book according to John. The Epistles of the Apostle Paul, fourteen in number: one to the Romans, two to the Corinthians, one to the Ephesians, two to the Thessalonians, one to the Galatians, one to the Philippians, one to the Colossians, two to Timothy, one to Titus one to Philemon, one to the Hebrews.

Likewise, one book of the Apocalypse of John. And the Acts of the Apostles, one book. Likewise, the canonical Epistles, seven in number: of the Apostle Peter, two Epistles; of the Apostle James, one Epistle; of the Apostle John, one Epistle; of the other John, a Presbyter, two Epistles; of the Apostle Jude the Zealot, one Epistle. Thus concludes the canon of the New Testament.

The remaining writings which have been compiled or been recognized by heretics or schismatics the Catholic and Apostolic Roman Church does not in any way receive; of these we have thought it right to cite below a few which have been handed down and which are to be avoided by Catholics as they are considered apocryphal.

Firstly we confess that the synod of Sirmium called together by Constantius Caesar the son of Constantine through the Prefect Taurus is damned then, now and forever.

The Itinerary in the name of Peter the apostle, which is called the nine books of the holy Clement; the Acts in the name of the apostle Andrew; the Acts in the name of the apostle Thomas; the Acts in the name of the apostle Peter; the Acts in the name of the apostle Philip; the Gospel in the name of Mathias; the Gospel in the name of Barnabas; the Gospel in the name of James the younger; the Gospel in the name of the apostle Peter; the Gospel in the name of Thomas which the Manichaeans use; the Gospels in the name of Bartholomew; the Gospels in the name of Andrew; the Gospels, which Lucianus forged; the Gospels which Hesychius forged; the book on the infancy of the saviour; the book of the nativity of the saviour and of Mary or the midwife; the book which is called by the name of the Shepherd; all the books which Leucius the disciple of the devil made; the book which is called the Foundation; the book which is called the Treasure; the book of the daughters of Adam Leptogeneseos; the cento on Jesus put together in Virgilian verses; the book which is called the Acts of Thecla and Paul; the book which is called Nepos'; the books of Proverbs written by heretics and prefixed with the name of holy Sixtus; the Revelation which is called Paul's; the Revelation which is called Thomas'; the Revelation which is called Stephen's; the book which is called the Assumption of holy Mary; the book which is called the Repentance of Adam; the book about Gog the giant of whom the heretics assert that after the deluge he fought with the dragon; the book which is called the Testament of Job; the book which is called the Repentance of Origen; the book which is called the Repentance of holy Cyprian; the book which is called the Repentance of Jamne and Mambre; the book which is called the Lots of the Apostles; the book which is called the grave-plate (?) of the Apostles; the book which is called the canons of the Apostles; the book Physiologus written by heretics and prefixed with the name of blessed Ambrose; the history of Eusebius Pampilii; the works of Tertullian; the works of Lactantius also known as Firmianus; the works of Africanus; the works of Postumianus and Gallus; the works of Montanus, Priscilla and Maximilla; the works of Faustus the Manichaean; the works of Commodian; the works of the other Clement, of Alexandria; the works of Thascius Cyprianus; the works of Arnobius; the works of Tichonius; the works of Cassian the Gallic priest; the works of Victorinus of Pettau; the works of Faustus of Riez in Gaul; the works of Frumentius Caecus; the cento on Jesus stitched together from verses of Virgil; the Letter from Jesus to Abgar; the Letter of Abgar to Jesus; the Passion of Cyricus and Julitta; the Passion of Georgius; the writing which is called the Interdiction of Solomon; all amulets which are compiled not in the name of the angels as they pretend but are written in the names of great demons.

These and those similar ones, which Simon Magus, Nicolaus, Cerinthus, Marcion, Basilides, Ebion, Paul of Samosata, Photinus and Bonosus, who suffered from similar error, also Montanus with his obscene followers, Apollinaris, Valentinus the Manichaean, Faustus the African, Sabellius, Arius, Macedonius, Eunomius, Novatus, Sabbatius, Calistus, Donatus, Eustasius, Jovianus, Pelagius, Julian of Eclanum, Caelestius, Maximian, Priscillian from Spain, Nestorius of Constantinople, Maximus the Cynic, Lampetius, Dioscorus, Eutyches, Peter and the other Peter, of whom one disgraced Alexandria and the other Antioch, Acacius of Constantinople with his associates, and what also all disciples of heresy and of the heretics and schismatics, whose names we have scarcely preserved, have taught or compiled, we acknowledge is to be not merely rejected but eliminated from the whole Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church and with their authors and the followers of its authors to be damned in the inextricable shackles of anathema forever.

"There is a certain power of immense and ineffable Light whose greatness may be held to be incomprehensible, of which power even the maker of this world is ignorant, and Moses the lawgiver, and Jesus your master." - Simon Magus


Creator Sustainer Council

In conclusion,

most of the books of modern New Testament, that most 'Christians' subscribe too, 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. 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.

It is extremely amazing that 'Christian literalists' have 'faith' and 'believe' that the books of the New Testament are pure as the driven snow, have never been edited, corrected, redacted, combined, added to, re-edited, re-corrected and corrupted by the very group that Protestants condemn as a cult, the Imperial State Religion of Holy Roman Catholic Church of scribes/priests/monks, management and of course the chief executive officer, the Pope.

The truth is this:

If we look at the New Testament as a literal accurate account (like network and cable news?) of what actually occurred when Jesus walked the Earth then we will fail to 'see' the truth within the text.

Jesus' original works were in words not in writing.

Many different men, with many different opinions, wrote down the oral accounts of the works, the words and the life of Jesus embellishing and refining as they saw fit according to their own belief system, a system 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 guide for living embedded in a marvelous art work.

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

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 told us that 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 in this life on Earth.

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

In this way we learn to walk with God, we learn to feel ourselves holding the divine spark of God's compassion, life, as a precious thing never to be taken except as required for basic sustenance.

"Catholics and non-Catholics alike need to recognize the fact that the church is a human institution, overseen by men with human faults." - Michael Miyamoto






Father Jon Sobrino is a surviving liberation theologist, part of a team of intellectual Jesuit priests based at the University of Central America.

Father Jon Sobrino was a close friend of Oscar Romero the archbishop of San Salvador who was assassinated by right-wing paramilitaries in 1980.

Father Jon Sobrino escaped death in 1989 when 6 priests, a cook and her daughter were slaughtered by Salvadoran soldiers as he was out of the country at the time.

Fernando Saenz Lacalle, a prominent San Salvador member of Opus Dei, has pushed the Vatican to silence Father Jon Sobrino for several years. Opus Dei supported the right-wing governments of Francisco Franco and Augusto Pinochet. Opus Dei's founding member Josemaría Escrivá believed in mortification of the flesh.

Josemaría Escrivá's maxim on suffering: "Loved be pain. Sanctified be pain. Glorified be pain!" Opus Dei is not what they appear to be - see Opus Dei Awareness Network.

Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI, as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith led a drive to stamp out Liberation Theology as it conflicts with imperial Christian theology.

Father Jon Sobrino has been silenced by the Vatican, he will not be allowed to teach or write.

"It's time that Americans concerned with illegal immigration start questioning our track record of befriending only the rich and powerful of Latin America while its wretched masses flood our frontiers." - Roger Carasso

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

Jesus guarantees the individual salvation by loving God (who granted every living creature life), allowing God's compassion to 'wash through one" cleansing the corruption of the soul and by living life always mindful of God's compassion as presented to mankind by Jesus.





Jesus' Light

The True Message of Jesus!

Jesus taught us that respect of the Creator
and Sustainer is based on unadulterated Awe.

Jesus taught us to accept reality as reality is but before we can do that we must examine reality in Clear White Light of the Creator and Sustainer.

Clear White Light of the Creator and Sustainer opens our hearts and minds to the compassion of the Creator and Sustainer has shown by the existence of life on Earth.

An emotional breakthrough into truly living in freedom occurs when one accepts the uncertainty of life rather than wishing or praying or casting spells that life be different than life actually is.

Jesus life model can be summed up in a sentence:

"Be kind to each other, improve yourselves and your surroundings, give generously to those in need, enjoylife and, most importantly:

NEVER BECOME MICE !"


Jesus accepts everyone !

This website defines a new religious ideology 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 the religion aptly 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 condemning 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.
