redemption road

redemption

Chinese charater for redemption

mercy




Redemption involves the surrender of the need for the cognitive dominance of agency defined as the need to cause submission and control action.

Redemption allows the ability to directly experience the joy of living.

This freeing of the Eternal Soul from social conditioning and social strictures renews and revives the human spirit stripping away spiritual corruption.

The Veil of Cognitive Blindness no longer obscures consciousness and the mirage of hyperreality dissolves into True Reality.



burning bush

repentance

Recognition of True Reality is starring into the Face of the Creator.

The Burning Bush melts frozen hearts allowing empathy to flow!

"Real repentance requires tears and fire in the heart!
Lightning and clouds are its indispensable condition.
You need fire and water for the fruit to ripen:
How can that occur without lightning and clouds?
Before the heart has shattered into lightning
And before rains of tears have fallen from your eyes."
- Rumi


salvation

salvation

the act of saving or protecting from harm, risk, loss, destruction, etcetera

the state of being saved or protected from harm, risk, etcetera

a source, cause, or means of being saved or protected from harm, risk, etcetera

In Christian theology deliverance from the power and penalty of sin; redemption.

Salvation can be understood metaphorically as redemption. As humans are unable to care for themselves at birth they require "saviors" to care for them until they are able to care for themselves. Taken literally salvation becomes a problem as the object of salvation takes on human parent characteristics which takes the object of salvation out of the plane of perfection and onto a earthly plane with the object of salvation having the same characteristics as a parent.




salvationism

A belief system that places the responsibility for the fulfillment of humanity outside itself, usually in the hands of a deity.

A religious doctrine claiming the salvation of the soul.

2. stressing the doctrine of salvation
3. a member of the Salvation Army adjective; of or relating to the Salvation Army
4. a salvation evangelist who makes a 'Call' for individuals to make open and public conversions

salvation while living

Perhaps it would be better to abandon the term 'salvation' and replace it with the word 'redemption'.

The term redemption speaks more to the concept of salvation in life.




eternal salvation

Eternal salvation is mentioned only once in the bible.

"During the days of Jesus' life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him." - Hebrews 5:7-9

The doctrine of eternal security teaches that once a person experiences salvation, nothing can cause him to lose that status. Millard J. Erickson states: "The Calvinist position is both clear and forthright on this matter: 'They, whom God hath accepted in His Beloved, effectually called, and sanctified by His Spirit, can neither totally nor finally fall away from the state of grace, but shall certainly persevere therein to the end, and be eternally saved' " (Westminster Confession of Faith 17.1)

Augustine popularized the doctrine of perseverance of the saints in the fifth century A.D. The Roman Catholic Church eventually adopted his teaching on this subject as official doctrine. It was the commonly accepted position at the time of the Protestant Reformation. Leaders of the Reformation, such as John Calvin, also accepted and promoted it along with a number of other pre-Reformational Roman Catholic doctrines and practices. In this way, eternal security has come down into the doctrinal systems of many modern Protestant denominations today.

The Arminian/Wesleyan/Holiness tradition, and the Assemblies of God that grew out of it, have both historically rejected the belief in eternal salvation.

"The Assemblies of God has taken a stand against the teaching that God's sovereign will completely overrides man's free will to accept and serve Him. In view of this we believe it is possible for a person once saved to turn from God and be lost again."



Gnostic Alchemy

Gnostic Eternal Salvation

Gnostic alchemists understand that salvation lies in the ability to transform lead into gold. Gnostic alchemists recognize that this transformation occur within the Heart changing dull dead hearts into shiny hearts of gold !

Shiny hearts of gold share the Joy of Creation beaming their golden rays onto all they encounter.



soteriology is the study of salvation

In Christianity the different soteriologies can be grouped into distinct schools: the Catholics and Orthodox on Justification, the Church, the Sacraments, and the freedom of the will; Arminianism's synergism; Calvinism's predestination; and a large range of Lutheran doctrine, including conversion, justification by grace alone through faith alone, the means of grace, and the Church

In Islam soteriology focuses on how humans can repent of and atone for their sins so as not to occupy a state of loss. Salvation in the afterlife comes from God's recognition and acceptance of the individual, with regards to their virtue, obedience and/or good deeds performed in their earthly life. The Qur'an states, and the Sunnah confirms, that good deeds redeem wrong deeds and charity removes wrong deeds just as water quenches fire.

In Judaism soteriology emphasizes morality in this life over concern with the afterlife. The concern is not so much for one's own benefit after this life, but so that ultimately all humanity can better its lot as everyone practices more virtuous and ethical behavior.

In Hellenistic soteriology salvation comes in this life.

Stoicism is concerned with the cultivation of virtues such as fortitude and detachment to improve spiritual well-being.

Buddhist soteriology focuses on attaining liberation from suffering by earning through proper thought patterns the eternal salvation of Nirvana.

Hinduism has one unifying factor: to free oneself from the cycle of rebirth Hindus embark on a quest for enlightenment through concept of Ahimsa, which means "non-violence."

Jainism emphasizes penance and asceticism, which lead to liberation and ascendance of the Eternal Soul.

Sikhism advocates the pursuit of salvation through disciplined, personal meditation on the message of God. This meditation is meant to bring a person into union with God.

According to Confucianist teachings, people cannot save themselves. While their good deeds create good karma and merit (called boon), people cannot use it for themselves. This merit can be used to help their ancestors, though, who are waiting in the spirit world and need help from the younger generation. In this way the children assist in the salvation of the parents.

Shinto and Tenrikyo similarly emphasize working for a good life by cultivating virtue or virtuous behavior.

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

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

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