Thanks for the response Tom. stated: "You'll be interested to know that a community of this type is forming Toronto and will begin meeting in September" response: I live in the Detroit Metro Area, only about 4 hours from Toronto. I'd love to periodically commune with y'all. If this is possible, could you contact me with the details? transcei

Tom, What I consider relevent question is: In light of all of this information how shall we view Christianity today, care for our soul, and rejoice in our faith with others of like mind? There are so few of like mind to be found within our communities. Being a former Evangelical, I now long for a congregation of people that will appreciate and honor the 'Christian' tradition through the Christ

stated: "Christ was often depicted with a quartered circle surrounding his head as a symbol of his divinity, enlightenment." response: It is imporatnt to remember that 'enlightment' is a healing of the mind which enables us to 'see God'. Israel means 'seeing God' and is why Paul says in Romans: Romans: "But it is not that the word of God has taken no effect. For they are not all

The word antichrist (antichristos) is only used 4 times in the NT. 1 John 2:18 is the 'rally call' of all orthodox premileniallists. Given all of the excellent language tools we have for interpreting Greek, the literalist translators refuse to accept that 'COME' in 1 John 2:18 is rendered in the PRESENT tense. Here is how i1 John 2:18 should read: "Little children, it is the last time: and

stated: "Most well versed literalists know very well what the issues are" response: Not necessarily. I find that most literalists are ignorant of ancient literature, philosophy and myth and therefore the detailed arguments. Indeed they may say something like this: "You do not find a counterfeit dollar bill by studying all of the counterfeits in circulation. You most efficiently

stated: "if Christ is a symbol of the totality of the spiritual self in everyone then what would be the purpose of creating a literalized external Christ figure, how could that be purposed?" response: I suspect that it was the author's purpose to create a 'historical fictional' Christ as sort of a 'carrier' of modulated, philosophical information. A good modern day analogy is the tran

stated: "Much Christianity for all practical purposes is a kind of tripartite polytheism" response: Tripartite yes, but I'm not quite so sure about the 'polytheism' element...at least in my investigation. My analysis has lead me to conclude that a monotheistic evolution of traditional Judaism into a Platonic Hellenic Judaism has taken place, where Jehovah is replicated and then escala

My Take...for what it's worth. stated: "What of the bread. The holy sacrament. To rise up in the fires." response: It is important to note that Jesus, as the bread of life, is meant to be viewed as 'unleavened' without impurity or influence. It is 'christ consciousness' that is pure and unalloyed, not influenced by opinion nor 'sophist pharisaical teaching', just like unleavened brea

stated: "The similarity between grape juice and blood.......Horus was a wine god, so too was dionysus; so too was the Jesus of the Gospels." response: An important inclusion of wine on at least 1 more account, which virtually ties Judaism and Greek Religion sybolically to Christianity would be: 1) Jesus (Exodus’ lamb of God) shed his blood (wine) as a libation (atonement) to the gods.

I beleive that the 3 stage "Tabernacle of Ancient Isreal" is a paradigm of our bodily existence and the 3rd stage (The Holy Of Holies) being where we become Christ. The New Testament makes this very clear through types, shadows and metaphor. I won't give all of the references here because it makes for a very fruitful treasure hunt. The measurements of the Tabernacle are VERY significa

stated: "sorry to add my three cents but what's wrong with adding knowledge to faith?" response: You input is worth far more than 3 cents. There are 2 variables: "knowledge OF your faith" and "knowledge IN your faith" The first is fruitless and baron the second is bountiful and fertile. Neither can be considered absolute through reason (because we are dealing

The rediscovery of the binary soul doctrine may be a part of that unveiling." response: Generally "that day" is associated with eternal knowledge, i.e. when one enters eternity after death, not in our present carnal infested existence. It is metaphorical la

stated: "In Thomas, as also in the Gospel of Philip and the Gospel of Truth (other lost gospels found alongside Thomas in Egypt in 1945), the primary theme is a primordial division of soul and spirit which created death, which division Jesus came specifically to overcome. Reading these gospels with the binary soul doctrine in mind makes their passages come alive, illuminating and clarifying

Not a very reliable source of information... response: Historically reliable? Partially, but far from absolutely (this is not its purpose). Spiritually reliable? Yes, for those with ears to hear and eyes to see. This is the message stated throughout the Bible

I believe the Bible to be one of the most "spiritually" intuitive texts that we have in our possesion today. The problem is, is that most people try to take it at its face historical value. The reason that they do that is because of its design. The Bible tells many "historical parables" about the manifestation of the Logos, i.e. David and Goliath, Noah and the Ark, Johah an

stated: The Bible is all about division. In the first chapter of Genesis, God divided the heavens from the earth, and then divided the light from the darkness, and then divided the water underneath from the water above, and then divided the water from the dry ground, and then divided the day from the night. response: Agreed. Have you considered what I call the triad/reciprocal structure of Gen 1

Has anybody investigated the potential mythology related to "Lucid dreaming". In case some of you don't know what it is, here is my definition from personal experience. Lucid Dreaming: Your awake state becomes conscious of your dream state and the two become one. I can't recall a time in my life that I did not experience these types of dreams.

I wonder what the Adams regime (John and John Quincy) was thinking? Adams to Jefferson 1813: "I wonder that Priestley has overlooked this, because it is the same philosophy with Plato's, and would have shown that the Pythagorean as well as the Platonic philosophers probably concurred in the fabrication of the Christian Trinity......Philosophy is not only the love of wisdom, but the science

The term 'getting high' to me is just that.....getting high i.e., rising above / beyond our current perceptual reality in order to approach the divine. The term 'getting high' is a great way to state that alternate reality, but unfortunately the term these says carries a lot of bad baggage. Entheogens to me, as was to the ancients I suppose, are but one way to 'get high'. Did you find your expe
