UNYIELDING BELIEFS MOST INSIDOUS - CAUSING ALL CONFLICTS BETWEEN RELIGIONS, NATIONS AND PEOPLE

Many of your TRUTHS — all of your TRUTHS — are mere BELIEFS
The belief systems that are strongest to us individually, we would call that a truth. You express it each day within your focuses. You associate with it continuously. Many of your automatic responses are associated within yourselves as truth.
This particular belief system may be one of the most insidious and one of the most difficult to identify and to notice. All of those automatic responses that you do not notice and you identify them as merely truth. Therefore, they are entirely unquestioned but they are mere beliefs.
Many individuals may express to themselves and to other individuals that they do not incorporate religious beliefs. This is entirely incorrect. They may even express to themselves that they do not incorporate any expression of religious beliefs, and they do. All of us express some religious beliefs, for all of us express some beliefs within every belief system — not all of them, but some.
You all incorporate many beliefs that you do not notice, that you do not pay attention to, that you do not question, for you assume that it is a TRUTH and there is no other manner in which it may be PERCEIVED. This generates tremendous conflict, for it is a tremendous lack of acceptance.
What we are witnessing now within our world are individuals who express their truths and their differences in their truths, and there is NO BENDING. For you do not question your own truths, and therefore they must be absolute and all other individuals must accept them, for your truth is THE truth and another individual’s truth is WRONG, and it is QUESTIONED.

This unyielding stance has produced or given birth to many things, such as hatred, discrimination and conflicts between religions, between nations, between neighbors and between people

We must be aware of what your truths are and recognizing that they are NOT truths but just beliefs. It is important that you pay attention to what you do and you pay attention to your emotional communications and to your translations of thoughts, but within our world most individuals do not.
We must initiate a shift in consciousness now and move our attention to how we project energy outwardly in interaction with other individuals and how that offers a contribution within our world in what manner you choose to be generating that energy and how it is affecting of other individuals.

You are sitting in your armchair and I Burst through your front door with a message of truth.
“your house is one FIRE!” I say, “you need to get out of the building now or you will die”

You look at me and laugh, “I don’t see any fire, I’m not going to leave the comfort of this chair just because you believe my house is on fire.”

I say again, “ No, There are flames pouring out of the windows upstairs, I’ve seen them?”

Still you laugh and don’t budge.

I go and try to drag you by your arm and you say I’m trying to hurt you. I call the fire department and you say I’m intolerant of you believes and should not try to force my thoughts on you. Finally the ceiling begins to cave in and I throw myself over you to protect you from the falling debris. You get upset and say I’m narrow minded finally the roof collapses and we both die.

There was a fire, that was truth. The fact that I believed there was a fire and you did not was do to the fact that I saw the flames and you did not. You were missing information and therefore ignorant of the Truth. There comes a time though where ignorance becomes willful ignorance and people refuse to believe the truth because they are comfortable and don’t want to change.

This is the case with people who say Christians shouldn’t share their views with others. See Christians have seen that the house is on fire, and some of them care enough about other people to go into the burning building and try to save them. It’s not about forcing views; it’s about saving lives.

You no it’s wrong to lie to deceive an innocent person, you know it’s wrong to steal (even little things from work or not being honest on your taxes), you know it’s wrong to look at lust and covet other peoples belongings. You know is wrong to be greedy or prideful thinking that you are better and more important then everyone else. Yet we all do those thing we all sin, that’s not a belief that’s a fact. And the Bible says that “all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God” & “the wages for sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” Christ Sacrifice is the only way; asking forgiveness doesn’t change the bad we’ve done. Doing good works, won’t change are past. If a rapist is arrest and tells the judge he is sorry and has done good thing to make up for the bad rape, the judge still has to punish him – if he let him go he would be a bad judge. In our case the judge, God, is a good judge and says we own a fine of death, we either pay it ourselves or we humble ourselves before God and admit that Christ paid it for us on the Cross. He died in our place and only though repentance and faith in Him can we have life. If you think it is narrow, or intolerant to share the message of salvation then you must have no concept of true Love. The Bible says Jesus is the ONLY way to God, if he’s not then he died a brutal death in vain. Not only that but all of his disciples and hundreds of the thousand of Christians throughout history have died in vain as well defending the truth of Christ, his Death, and his resurrection.

Before Jesus was crucified he said to Pilot “for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me."
Pilot answer, “What is truth?"
Jesus in John 14:6 said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Do not be fooled there is truth, and to not proclaim it is completely unscrupulous. It would be like watching a blind man walk towards a cliff and not speaking up to warn him of the danger he was walking into. So don’t criticize people who are genuinely concerned for you. Christ loves you and gave his life for you, he desperately desires to know you and forgive you. He is God he created you, and you own him everything you have. He is the only God and to deny him is a sin worthy of eternal punishment. I will leave with this. Christ said he desires that none should die, but that all would come to know the truth. Even if you were the only man to ever sin, Christ would have still come toe earth and died in your place, that is how much he loves you. Don’t let yourself be willfully ignorant of truth, cry out to God I beg you. Take care and God Bless.
I hope I did not sound harsh, my message should be good news to you, and it comes from a genuine concern, I don’t know you but I know you a creation of God worthy of Dignity, Love and Respect. I pray that you would come to a full knowledge of you identity and to a right relationship with your creator Jesus Christ.

When Christ spoke he did so in the context of his times, using the symbolism and vocabulary that made sense to a particular people in a particular period of history.

He began with their beliefs and using their references tried to lead them into freer realms of understanding. With each translation, the Bible has changed its meaning.

You were created in God's image, yet you were sinful. Love the Lord, but fear the Lord. And if you were born a woman, by the Old Testament you are evil and to be punished and treated as property and cared for as if you're incapable of taking care of yourself. Your clergy were the only ones allowed to commune with God FOR you. God created you, but don't be human and have human feelings. Human emotions were then relegated to God.

This Jewish man supposedly died for everyone's sins, really? Jesus never said that he did so. Suppose he didn't even die on the cross. But you think he knew every person who would be born after him and that we're ALL sinners that need saving - by him alone? If you believe that, then I have this half bridge in Singapore I’d like to sell you....I also don't believe this story because I don't think anything is a "sin," EXCEPT perhaps forgetting our divine source.

The point of the Jesus myth was really the symbolic resurrection, ETERNAL LIFE, not martyr hood, not victim hood, not blame. So if there's anything to celebrate from the story of Jesus, it is that we are all divine and eternal beings.

The Crucifixion story represented, in your terms, now, the self-destructive aspect of the species at the time. And it represents the self-destructive elements of the species in this time for those who still accept it.

Many religions set up their methods and their dogmas, offering the hope of great knowledge, great understanding, and wisdom. There is only one catch: You must die first! Some of the basic tenants of Christianity were good, But for all of that, you still have the story that when you suffer and die you will go to heaven, gain knowledge and beauty and truth, and escape this ‘vale if tears.’

Just think what might have happened and think how your religious books might read, if the myth read differently. Supposing the story read thusly: Christ was not crucified at all. He was not persecuted. He was not chased. He was not scourged, and no one gave him vinegar to drink. Instead, they handed him purple robes, set him up in state at Rome, called him the Christ, the Son of God, but said that the kingdom of God is upon the earth, and salvation is now. What would the priests do? For indeed, knowledge and joy and salvation would be within your grasp. Many religions believe that you must go through trials or walk through fire first. Now, in your terms, that is certainly the most severe trial of all. This is a poor way to prove faith. For if you believe in life, you prove your faith by living it. You dare love it. You do not need suffering or trials.
There should never be a word in any language that means repentance. There should only be a word that means, I bless; for when you bless, you do not need to repent. Or when you accept a blessing, there is nothing to repent. Love of All That Is requires simply that you become open as air, for when you are open as air then joy of all that is flows through you indiscriminately, and there is nothing to repent.
You only need repentance when you do not know joy. For within joy and within all that is there is only glory, consciousness and song. There is only blessedness.
When you berate yourself for your sins, then you do not realize what joy is. Do you berate a flower that has one crooked stem? So in yourselves, know spontaneity and in spontaneity you will find joy. Spontaneity has its own discipline. You do not need to enforce discipline upon it.

My dear neighbor, thank you for taking the time to read my previous post. I can tell you and a man of great thought, and are seeking hard after the truth. As you can tell I am convicted by my beliefs, because of this I feel the need to correct what you have said about Christ because it does not match up with what he said in the scriptures.

First of all Christ did say he died for all, many times. The Profits predicted his death and even the way he would die. He even predicted being hung on the cross at the start of his ministy.

John 3
as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.[e]

Secondly Christ proclaimed that his kingdom WOULD be built in this world and the be perfect in the next, but he also said it would not be set up anything like the kingdoms of this world.

Mark10
Jesus called them together and said, "You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 43Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 44and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. 45For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

His kingdom is spread through the hearts of men. He commanded his followers to carry the gospel message to the ends of the earth in humility and without violence. The Kingdoms of the worlds progress through power and violence, Christ kingdom progresses through servant hood and meekness, Through spreading the good news and the love of Jesus Christ and his Grace.
Christ lives as our King and Died as our great high priest. The priests make the sacrifice on behalf of the people; Christ’s sacrifice was himself.

The whole of Christianity is about one word-GRACE. No other religion has understood this, and for you to say that you don't need repentance show you have a hard self-righteous heart. All repentance is, is admitting you are in the wrong and turning back to God in humility. Are you saying you are without sin or that the God who embedded within us a conscience really doesn’t care about morality? That’s foolishness man. We know how we should behave, yet be disobey. If God gave us a morality to follow and then doesn’t enforce that morality he is a corrupt and evil God.

Lastly Christianity does not make any one divine other than the Holy Trinity- Father, Son, and Holy Sprit. Three Persons=One God. We in Christ become adopted sons of God, but not gods ourselves. We are finite beings created by an infinite God. We can never be him, to suggest that is blasphemy. I can see there is much pride with in you, look deep into you soul and tell me there is no sin there. You can’t, no one can. That is why you and I need a savior. And only an infinite sacrifice is big enough to cover all the sins of all men. That sacrifice again is the Divine Christ Jesus. And joy does not come from denying our sinfulness, but from realizing that the God who created us still loves us despite out imperfection – and he went to all lengths to restore us to a right relationship with him. Be honest with yourself, eternity is at steak. You can not have true joy if you have not know mercy and grace.

God saw a bunch of flowers that broke their stems and had pity on them, He said I love you the way you are, but I love you enough to make you better, to make you perfect. He wants to make you the Glory of His Garden. He does this through Christ. When God looks down on a man in Christ, he no longer see a sinner, he sees only the reflection of his divine perfect Son Jesus Christ, he sees an unblemished flower- it’s imputed righteousness, we are clothed with Christ. His church is his Kingdom, His Bride, it is the garden he is building and it will one day bring him perfect glory when this age is complete.

I do not by any means want to force my views on you, but I am convicted to share with you the glorious truth of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Whatever you believe, you are still my neighbor and I will love you with the love Christ gives me. Thank you for your time and for the dialog you’ve shared.

You were born into a state of grace. It is impossible for you to leave it. You will die in a state of grace whether or not special words are spoken for you, or water or oil or milk is poured upon your head.

You share this blessing with the animals and all other living things. You cannot fall out of grace, nor can it be taken from you.
