    Have you leaned what Jesus and your bible teaches?

    The Bible teaches one to start a spiritual journey from the
    bottom, i.e. from a stage where he must consider himself as a born sinner and starts his journey upwards from there. One reaches the second stage when he realises that he is the son and God is his father. The final realisation is when he realises that he and the Father are one.

    This is similar to the spiritual journey of a Hindu who starts his journey from the Dwait stage, where he thinks himself and God to be two distinct entities, graduates to Vishishta Adwait, a stage where he thinks himself a fragment/fraction of Him and finally reached to the Adwait stage where he merges himself with that infinite consciousness.

    Stevan Davies. The savior is not a celestial being brought to earth; the savior is a capacity of the mind, and the savior’s journey from above is actually one’s own journey from within.

    John Lennon. It seems to me that the only true Christians were the Gnostics, who believed in self-knowledge, I.E. becoming Gods
    themselves, reaching the Christ within, the light is the truth. Turn on the light. All the better to see you my dear.

    John 6 ; 63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they
    are life.

    Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the
    key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

    Mark 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your
    tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

    I think Jesus hated the idol worshipers of the traditional supernatural based religions and wanted to put us on a better and more naturalistic Gnostic Christian path of seeking knowledge and wisdom through Gnosis; that being a deeper knowledge of the self and others.

    Do you agree?

    Can a bird fly right when one wing is way stronger than the other?

    Note how the U.S. is now the laughing stock of the world as it flies in circles.

    Galatians 2:15 (CEV) = 15 We are Jews by birth and are not sinners like Gentiles.

    Hell no. I am a Gnostic Christian.

    We hold no supernaturalstupid beliefs. Our myths have a lot of that but only the mentally dull will read myths literally.

    According to the Bible if you don't believe Paul's gospel then you aren't a Christian.

    True, but if we are to believe what the bible says, there are no Christians at all since it has Jesus saying that any who believe or have even a minute amount of fait, they could do all that Jesus did and more.

    By that standard, there has never been a believer of Christian with faith.

    I think that that is true given that they had no faith in their ideology/theology and had to use inquisitions to grow their vile religion.
