C3.02. Necessary Spiritual Environment Created By American Gnostics
One of the core objectives that modern Christians are for the most part totally ignorant of today, is the necessity of an environment that is essential to the practice of religion in accord with crucial Gospel principles. The first order of business of the disciples in the Book of Acts, was to create and inaugurate spiritual communities that were absolutely necessary in order to bring about the higher Gospel objectives. And these spiritual communities were to be set apart from the culture and people of this world to the degree that Paul commanded the Christians to have nothing to do with the unclean — i.e., “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you” (2 Cor 6:17 KJV). To the degree that Paul commanded the community of believers not even to dine with sinners — i.e., “I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people… But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner — not even to eat with such a person…” (1 Cor 5:9-13 NKJ). The modern Christian who have been duped into embracing a Marxist interpretation of the Gospel in the doctrine of Collective Salvation, remain absolutely clueless to understand why the first Christians were required to live separate and apart in secluded communities that were segregated from the culture and lifestyle of their day. But that is because the dogmatic Christianity that has survived into the 21st century, has little to nothing in common with the original teachings and objectives of the religion of TheWay.
In the same way that the Deists who understood that in its original form the religion of Jesus was the purist of all religions — i.e., “…their mission as the stripping away of “priestcraft” …from religion, thereby restoring religion to its original, true condition – simple and rational. In many cases, they considered true, original Christianity to be the same as this original natural religion” — they also understood that the partnership of church and state always brought about the total downfall and demise of the essential religious teachings that became replaced by irrational and often meaningless dogma. Prior to the Nicene take over of the Church by the Pagan Emperor Constantine in the 4th century, the wisest and most intelligent of men and women were the Christians who possessed the Spiritual Knowledge that provided them a higher understanding of the Laws and the realities of this world that remains unknown even in modern times. And the Core of the Spiritual Christians possessed far greater knowledge than any of the pseudo-scholars who teach in our universities today. What happened? There was a segment of the Church that had become paganized and morally bankrupt (see The Example Of Paul Of Samosata ), and these very pagan Christians entered into a covenant with the Emperor Constantine, and the Church became proscribed by pagan Rome. The result was that emperor dictated the acceptable doctrines of the Church — the Spiritual Christians were denounced and condemned as heretics who were hunted down and murdered — the most corrupted copies of the scriptures (see Bible Corruption) were further rewritten in order to make them support the dogma of pagan Rome — and the higher spiritual knowledge that the Church previously possessed, became outlawed as heresy. Thus, when modern Atheists such as Richard Dawkins portrays the Christian as ignorant, what he is unknowingly condemning is the government doctrines that were imposed upon the Church. Men such as Richard Dawkins are not only absolutely clueless as to the nature and reality of the Truth of the pre-Nicene Christian Church, but their Paradigm of Thinking has totally alienated them from man’s true higher reality.
The Spiritual Core of Christianity remains virtually unknown today, because of direct government intrusion into the affairs of the Church with respect to acceptable doctrines of belief. In the same way that in China only those Churches which are approved by the government are permitted, so too was the Church that came into being in the fourth century under the direct control of the Roman Emperors. That the segment of the Church which called itself Orthodox, was a mere puppet of Pagan Rome and had little to nothing in common with the original teachings and objectives of Jesus and TheWay, should come as no surprise to the modern believer in view of the many statements of biblical scholars such as A. Powell Davies who attempted to warn the Christian world that discoveries such as the Dead Sea Scrolls had confirmed what they had suspected and believed all along — i.e., that the Emperor Constantine and the Pagan Church of Rome created a religion of blind faith and belief where he wrote that: “Biblical scholars were not disturbed by what they found in the Dead Sea Scrolls because they had known all along that the origin of Christianity was not what was commonly supposed to have been” (quoted by Millar Burrows in More Light on the Dead Sea Scrolls). Thus, this long ignored statement prompts us to ask: Why didn’t the biblical scholars understand the true origin of Christianity prior to the discovery and examination of the Dead Sea Scrolls? To answer this question we must consult the findings of Prof. Elaine Pagles who correctly writes: “It is the winners who write history – their way. No wonder, then, that the viewpoint of the successful majority has dominated all traditional accounts of the origin of Christianity… It suggests that these religious debates – questions of the nature of God, or of Christ – simultaneously bear social and political implications that are crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion. In simplest terms, ideas which bear implications contrary to that development come to be labeled as heresy; ideas which implicitly support it become orthodox” (see Pagles, The Gnostic Gospels). In not learning the lessons of history, modern believers have overlooked the fact that when despots rule, they not only annihilate all opposition — but they “…write history – their way” — and they corrupt and burn whatever writings stand in opposition to their supremacy and rule. Which means that those doctrines of belief that are seen as orthodox and promoted by the modern-day Church today, is drawn from the side of “…political implications that [were] crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion”under the direct control of Pagan Rome. In the case of the Christian Church beginning in the fourth century, to disagree with the doctrines affirmed by the Emperor Constantine, carried with it the sentence of death. Thus, Edward Gibbon writes in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire: ”Constantine easily believed that the heretics, who presumed to dispute his opinions or to oppose his commands, were guilty of the most absurd and criminal obstinacy… Not a moment was lost in excluding the ministers and teachers of the separated congregations from any share of the rewards and immunities which the emperor had so liberally bestowed on the orthodox clergy. But as the sectaries might still exist under the cloud of royal disgrace, the conquest of the East was immediately followed by an edict which announced their total destruction”. Thus, in the same way that whoever did not embrace the religion of the emperor met with the sentence of death, whatever scriptures did not conform to the approved version, was immediately destroyed (see http://BibleCorruption.com ).
The term BC with respect to the beginning of our Common Era, should be reevaluated to indicate Before Constantine with respect to the birth of the Christ that is worshiped in the modern Church and promoted by its secularized (Orthodox) dogma. That the modern-day Christ and the religion of the Church were conceived and born under the dominion of the Roman Emperor Constantine — and that the dogma of the Church was purely political, in contradistinction to the spiritual foundation of the original teachings — is demonstrated in the fact that modern Christianity has very little in common with the original objectives of the teachings of TheWay which was to bring about “…the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” (see Original Gospel Objectives) — which has absolutely nothing in common with the blind faith dogmatized Church that came into being in the fourth century under the rulership and doctrinal control of Pagan Rome. But the fact that the modern Christians worship the satanic god of Constantine should come as no surprise, in view of the fact that the Apostle Paul predicted that the worship of the true God would cease, and those who called themselves Christian would instead worship Satan (see The Church of the AntiChrist). That the objective of what Paul portrays as the god of this world, is to keep the congregation of Christians ignorant and promoters of blind-faith in the spurious doctrines of Pagan Rome, has for the most part continued to inhibit the True Spiritual ReBirth of the Church. And while pseudo-priests such as Martin Luther convinced the Church to embrace the dogma of faith apart from actions — to the degree that every tenet of the modern Church is openly condemned in their own New Testament (see The Lie & The Ten Minute Test), the modern believer continues to ignore the scriptures in their allegiance to the dogma of Pagan Rome. And, just as equally important to understand, is that “…the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” has absolutely nothing to do with the expansion of the physical brain — but rather, both the refinement of the physical body that permits this expansion of mind to be brought about, and the development of those areas which lie under the control of the innate Intuitive Spheres of the Mind that the physical brain does not naturally support.
Throughout history there have always been the few who rejected the folly of the Church’s self-imposed Vow Of Ignorance, and with a dauntless heart sought the Truth of the Spirit over the doctrines of men. Yet, in the past, anyone who knew the Truth — and even openly hinted at the Truth — were immediately turned upon as a demonic heretic by the Church — often burnt at the stake for heresy. In the name of their god and gods, those who spoke the Truth were condemned as a disease to humanity that needed to be eradicated before it (they) could infect the thinking of other people. And sadly, the Church has continued down this road of self-imposed ignorance even to this very day. To the mind of the true believer, such things as facts and rational thought are simply not part of the equation. In contradistinction to the blind static-faith of the common believer, Paul’s faith was based upon sure knowledge and spiritual experiences of incomprehensible Mysteries that would totally confuse the modern believer, who must rely solely upon blind faith in the unknown. And while this fact is easily demonstrated using the Bible itself, because the readers of the written word are themselves blind to its true meaning, they simply skip over these crucial warnings as if they do not exist. The result is that they put their faith in rhetoric and the doctrines of men — which doctrines become their own limitation — and they never move on to maturity and wholeness, and perfect their faith in the manner that Paul Commanded.
In the same way that the parable of the Sower and the Seed demonstrates the necessary environment for the Living Word to grow and evolve within the individual (see Sower And Seed), the body of Spiritual Gnostics who were called Deists understood why the Gospel requires segregation from the culture and lifestyle of the people of this world (see above Necessary Spiritual Environment). In understanding the Laws and the complexity of Higher Thought that man in his organic and carnal condition could not even begin to grasp, the original Spiritual Americans created the necessary Constitutional environment that would permit the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God to give birth and bring about higher consciousness. And when rightfully understood, American Spirituality was inaugurated that protected itself by inhibiting the state from not only embracing a particular religion — but also interfering with the practice of religion. As ruled upon by the Supreme Court: “The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as Legal Principles to be applied by the courts” (West Virginia State Board of Education vs Burnette 319 US 624, 638, ). And when rightly understood, the primary reason was to protect the Spiritual Environment that was created by our Constitutional framework from the infringement of both church and state — and to protect the birth of American Spirituality from the assault upon essential Gnostic Principles that had immersed mankind in ignorance throughout his historical past. Thus, more than anything else, our Constitutional Framers who were portrayed as Deists, created the necessary environment that had the capacity to give birth to and nurture “…the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” which was a core objective of the original Gospel teachings of Jesus and TheWay.
As explained throughout the foregoing, the Greek word for Spiritual Knowledge received through revelation received directly from God is call Gnosis (see The Reality Of Gnosis) — but in not wanting to use this word that the Church condemned as heresy, those who opposed the folly of Luther and his suspension of the God-Given Gift of Reason, instead called themselves Deists. And thus, herein lies the paradox that neither the Church or the modern neo-Deists can even begin to come to terms with — i.e., in order for the position of the Deists to be correct, they must have themselves been able to tap into a Source of Higher Knowledge and Wisdom — which they did — and it is for this reason that I correctly portray them as the Original American Gnostics. Why Gnostics? Because the word Gnosis is one of those words which cannot be redefined by carnal men — and the word itself portrays Spiritual Knowledge derived directly from the Source of all Knowledge (see Gnosis) — the gaining of which is often portrayed as the Divine Manna of the Kingdom, is indeed one of the primary objectives of a Spiritual Religion. But these original primary objectives are very quickly corrupted by carnally minded priests who alter the original teachings in order to place themselves in a position of authority over the congregation of faith-based believers.
Deists are said to revere what is called Natural Religion versus revealed religion. But what is Natural Religion? Which further raises the question: Do modern neo-Deists even understand the proper application of the scriptures and what is the true meaning of what they term a revealed religion? What the Deists said is that if you begin to understand what they portrayed was the Laws of Nature, that the Higher Reality of Nature’s God will begin to be revealed to you. Why? Because there is a Divine Pattern that all of Creation is holographically imprinted with the Spiritual DNA of its Creator — and if you understand the pattern that the Laws of God imbued into all that exists, you will then begin to perceive and comprehend the Source that brought forth the all that exists. Where the priest who promotes “priestcraft” corrupts the original teachings, and then seduces the believers into accepting his authority by promoting blind belief and faith in the dogma of carnal men — a True Gnostic who builds upon the proper mindset and lifestyle, is able to develop his innate (God-Given) abilities to gain access to the Source of all Truth and Knowledge. And having themselves tapped into the Source, the Deists (or American Gnostics) influenced the framers of our Constitutional form of government to create an environment that would enable man to aspire to a higher potential.
I am writing the following on the objectives and accomplishments of the American Deists/Gnostics, because it is impossible to evolve the mind beyond the organic-physical (carnal) level of nature-man, without first understanding (1) both the Laws; (2) and the manner in which the Laws evolve the mind of man to overcome the natural physical barrier of earth-consciousness; (3) with the objective being to enable the seeker/disciple to begin to tap into man’s higher soul and spiritual reality that his physical senses are oblivious to.
