What is religion? Where did if first come from? Did you ever wonder why are there so Religions? Or why there are so many Gods? There is a Christian, Jewish, Catholic, Mormon, Buddha, Muslim, even a New Age God, just to name a few. So with so many religious concepts of God, how are we to know which is the real one?
Are you sure the Religion and God you have chosen to worship, is the real provable one, because if you cannot prove there is a God, what do you really have? Just a belief and what good is a belief in time of need? That’s right, no good at all.
Besides your Religion telling you there is a God just what proof do you have that there is a God? If God were something real, wouldn’t It let you know first hand? Wouldn’t God want you to know him? Personally?
Doesn’t the fact that there are so many conflicting religious beliefs of, on or about God, tell you that God is a complete mystery to the world?
All Religions Are Based On Beliefs.
Beliefs are, ‘opinions.’ And ‘opinions’ are ‘beliefs without proof.’ And beliefs can change. Religion started out with the Sun, then followed with mythology.Mythology is, ‘an imaginary or fictitious thing person’. ‘Not fact or logic.’ There just is no proof as to whether a God or Gods existed then or now. None.
Religions are based on faith and faith is only a, belief’. People need to believe that there is ‘something’ more, so they invented-
God, Gods, Goddess, Deities and Religions.
According to Webster’s, religion means a, ‘set of beliefs concerning the cause of all things.’ So, Religion is a, set of beliefs. And just because a belief is agreed and accepted as factual, does not make it so. And just what is the belief of a God based on? What ‘facts’?
In the case of Religion, the only facts they have, are passed down beliefs. So, your religion is you agreeing and accepting the beliefs of others. Your Religion is you agreeing with someone else’s opinion of the reality of a God based on THEIR understanding. Not yours. Theirs.
Religion is a ‘belief in, worship of, or obedience to a supernatural power or powers considered to be divine or to have control of human destiny.’
Again, a belief. Not a fact.
From the beginning of Religion, each of these religious groups choose the God they believe is the real God, then do their best to convince all others that their God is the real and only God. For some reason most of these religious groups think it’s their duty to force the world into their beliefs. Odd that any God of any religion would want His followers to be so hateful of others.
Religion started with terrible conflict and all these thousands of year later, NOTHING HAS CHANGED. The fact is no Religion knows GOD. They know what they think they know, but all they know is what they have been taught to know of God. By other men.Not by a God.
Unless God is personal, to you, You do not have any God and unless God speaks directly to YOU, you have no God. You have a belief. A belief you call God.All based on what man has told you even though we have been told we should not listen to man.
Think of this, religion means, ‘conscientiousness,’ which means,’ just, upright,honest, faithful, devoted, dedicated.’
Religion then is not something that needs to be organized or has anything to do with groups or with anyone or anything other than YOU.
Religion is, YOU being, just, upright, honest, faithful, devoted, dedicated. Religion is a personal thing and does not need to be organized.
It was man, whose breath is in his nostrils that created religions.
“I do not believe in the God of theology who rewards good and punishes evil.
What is a ‘scribe?
One description of a scribe is a person who makes copies of the ancient writings for the Government and Priests.
Could it be the Churches would want to make changes, so the people would do as they believed they should?
And for the Government, they might want the writings to be understood in favor of the Government, in order to control the people easier.
Copying manuscripts of the Old Testament in the original Hebrew language as originated by the Scribes long, long, before Jesus.
Pope Damascus, way back in 382, had the entire Bible translated into Latin by St. Jerome. As Jerome read the texts he like any of the translators, would have interpreted them from his/their state of beliefs. It is Jerome’s Latin translation of the Bible that is said to be the official version of the Bible accepted by the Catholic Church.
The King James Version was translated by 54 men who used all the older versions along with the original manuscripts, and each decided on how he believed the passages should read. There have been over 300 corrections since the 1613 version of the King James Version. What does that tell you? Just imagine it is you who has to translate old manuscripts, would you not choose what words and the passages meant to you?
Maybe that is WHY Jeremiah said
THE FALSE PEN OF THE SCRIBES MADE WORDS INTO A LIE.
There is no original manuscripts of the Old Testament today.
Do Not Freak Out About This Post.
Just what is the ‘truth’ we are to know? And if it is ‘truth’ that sets us ‘free’, what are we set free from?
Guess we should know a meaning for the word.
Truth, ‘what actually occurred.’
Okay, so what ‘actually did occur…in the beginning?
And where might this ‘void’ exist, that ‘brings forth all things?
And Consciousness IS -Where ALL things come from.
Then we are told
It clearly states that we, man were created in Gods
IMAGE AND LIKENESS
Why are we told God looked like man?
Or that we look like God?
If we do not?
Wouldn’t that mean, God, the Creator looks like us?
What else could it mean?
Think about that one because, without God, without Consciousness, there wouldn’t be nothing.
At least think about it because we are told that we are one with our God. One with Consciousness.
And how about what man is today learning?
Yes, man creates his world out of the VOID of his
Just like the Creator from the Bible.
Mans Thoughts, Ideas and Images
Project out as ‘forms.’
As US. As our REALITY.
And now seriously think about this one.
Is the ‘truth’ we are to know, it is our self’s who are the creators?
If man is one with his God, Consciousness
Then God, Consciousness, is man and man is God, Consciousness
Is it not true…
Without God there is nothing.
Without Consciousness, there is nothing.
Without your Consciousness…There is nothing?
Will understanding this…set us free?
Long before religion became the fad, there were accounts of UFO’S. So it it is curious that when the religions of the world were established they never taught nor even spoke of the UFO’S, those strange flying objects in the heavens. Odd since the writings found in the very Bible itself gives many accounts of UFO’S.
The question is, why don’t they talk about UFO’S since in the New Testament you read 38 times of things that fly around in heavens. There are 362 verses describing objects as vehicles in the Bible. There are 37 verses describing other objects as vehicles. There are 10 verses describing flying dwellings as vehicles in the Bible and refer to them as Gods dwelling place. No matter how much one refuses to acknowledge that UFOs are real, the men who wrote the Bible certainly believed they were real things.
The Bible tells of many instances of flying crafts called chariots of the Elohiym…God. The Bible tells of a GOD who flies around in whirling chariots of fire. What were the chariots of fire that sound so much like modern space ships and could shoot things from it?
You are told God is directly associated with these flying objects. It seems God traveled in vehicles similar to UFOs. What are they? Why do not the churches try to explain them?
The Bible tells you of wars going on in the heavens. So who were the ones fighting each other and what were they in as they fought? Why were they fighting?
The Bible tells you that brimstone’s were shot down to earth when people didn’t obey whoever was in the sky. Brimstone means ‘to be destroyed by fire.’ Who was it shooting down the brimstone’s, or bombs? What were they shot out of? Why doesn’t the Bible scholars address these things?
The Bible tells of men who go up to the heaven and who come down from heaven. Where did humans stay in heaven and what did they do there? The Bible tells you that Elijah and Elisha are talking and suddenly a bright, flying vehicle and a cavalry of bright, flying objects appear and Elijah is taken into the sky by a spinning-flying vehicle. Again, why do the religious rulers not talk of things like this?
The Bible tell you Zechariah looks up and sees four flying vehicles coming from heaven . It seems God contacts mankind in glowing, flying objects. David spoke of a cherub, and it did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. Did you not ever wonder about the four flying vehicles.
The Bible tells you Peter also saw a craft descending from the sky. The words from which ‘chariot’ is translated mean vehicle,. What were the Chariots that flew in the sky? Chariot is also known as ‘a vehicle’
“What kind of ‘machine’ was Ezekiel talking about when he tells of a descending chariot/vehicle, and from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures and they had the form of men? Do not the churches know or do they NOT want man to understand that there are and were OTHERS with far more power than man and the church? You may be surprised if you were to do you OWN investigating into things.
One of the oldest known culture from 6000 BC, the Sumerians told of beings from the stars. Think about that. Beings from the stars. Thousand of years later you have the rest of the ancient worldwide, all giving the same accounts, along with the same kind of
of beings from the sky.
How can it be explained that from very ancient times to present, all the ancient worldwide drawings and painting show the same type of beings from the sky?
How is it possible that people from all parts of the world were drawing and writing about the same kind of beings from the sky? At the same time? Go investigate and you will be amazed.
Why do the mass of people find it hard to accept that if, thousands of years ago, space travelers, aliens, were around, why they wouldn’t still be around today?
All ancient religious writings, tell of beings, which they chose to call God. These ancient gods all descend from the skies. So why is it so difficult for man to accept beings from the skies. Even the Vatican believes it is probable that there are today, BEINGS FROM THE SKY.
What is it that keeps the mind so closed as to to accept?
Today as of old, man is still drawing and reporting the appearances of Aliens? If we exist, why could not others?
It seems like, YES.
YES, because Jesus did preach many of the beliefs of Buddha.
The Buddha like sayings by Jesus, were said by Buddha 500 or so years before Jesus. Jesus and his ways were much like those of Buddha.
Buddha: “Consider others as yourself.” Dhammapada 10:1
Jesus: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31
Buddha: “Abandoning the taking of life, the ascetic Gautama dwells refraining from taking life, without stick or sword.” Digha Nikaya 1:1.8
Jesus: “Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take the sword will perish by the sword.” Matthew 26:52
BUDDHA: “Perishable is a city built on sand.”
JESUS: “A foolish man, which built his house on sand.” Matthew 7:26
BUDDHA: “Confess before the world the sins you have committed.” (31)
JESUS: “Therefore confess your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed.” James-5-16
BUDDHA: “Consider others as yourself.” (33)
JESUS: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31
These are only a few.
Could Jesus have studied Buddhism during his missing 3 years?
The above is all new to me, so I decided to take a COURSE in Buddhism to see what all I can find that would lead me to believe if Jesus followed Buddhism…since I always have to find my own facts and DO NOT FOLLOW HANDED DOWN OPINIONS AND BELIEFS.
Not just good, but very good. Is this what you believe? Or do you believe what you read in Genesis 2:5 where you are told that God could not find his first Man.
‘There was no man to till the ground.’
Where was the first Male and Female that had already been created in Gods image and whom God called very good? Why could God not find, the Male and Female that he created? Where did they go?
Since it seems God lost his first Male and Female, he has to start all over and create them again. According to the second creation, yes God did have to start over and so this time God did not make man in his image and likeness, instead, man was made from
Dust? Dust means, ‘something of no worth.‘
Seems God no longer wanted his man to be made in his image and likeness. So this time he created man from ‘something of no worth.’
It seems God also lost his first FEMALE, so God decides not only to NOT make man in his likeness, he now decides his female should not be made in his image and likeness either, nor made like the man made of dust.
So now we have a Male made of ‘dust’ and a Female made of a ‘rib’.
Interesting that a meaning for ‘rib’ is a ‘hoax,’ and a ‘hoax’ is a ‘fraud.’ Is it possible this man of ‘dust’ and woman of a ‘rib’, are ‘frauds?
If this story were true, man would have one less ‘rib’ than woman, but this is not true. Both male and female have the same amount of ‘ribs.’ 24 ribs each.
Dust also means, ‘confused.’
I guess God knew that because this man made of ‘dust, made of something of no worth’ and who was created ‘confused’ and ate from the tree, he was not the man he wanted. Nor did God want the woman who was made from a ‘rib.’
This God did not want any part of this worthless, confused man and the woman who was a ‘fraud,’ and he decides they should be punished and sent away.
And then man is told
Don’t you want to return to God?
If you do, there is a way.
It is to
Awake you that sleep for you are not make from something of no worth’.
Awake, become aware of the real you, made in Gods own image and likeness.
Awake, you are NOT the man of dust.
Just remember, NO WHERE in the Bible does it say God woke the man made of dust from his sleep.
So the question is, do YOU want to wake up? Do you want to be aware of the YOU God created in his image and likeness, and who he was pleased with? Or do you want stay asleep and live as the man of dust and the woman of a rib?
Awake means to ‘be aware.’
Do you want to be one of the MANY who do become aware that you are NOT the man of dust or the woman from a rib?

Like so many other sayings, could this one have a hidden meaning? Lets see.
First, why would Jesus want them to ‘leave their nets.’
‘Leave’ comes from the word, ’believe’ and ’believe is, ’to accept something as true without absolute proof that it is true.’
Could Jesus have been trying to tell the fishermen that it was time to ‘leave,’ to leave what they had always ‘believed and accepted’ about what they had been taught about God? Did Jesus want to teach them about his God, a God that they could ‘prove’?
Maybe another reason was because Jesus understand the word ’net’ can mean, ’conditions and circumstances.’
Was Jesus trying to get the men to understand that their present ‘conditions ’ were only ‘agreements?’ Agreements, because that is what the meaning for ‘conditions’ is, ‘agreements.’
If so, an ‘agreement with what? Agreements with the handed down beliefs and opinions from the ancient fathers? Ancient fathers who believed in a god of war and destruction?
Did Jesus also understand the word ’net’ can mean, ‘circumstances?
Interesting to know that the word ‘circumstance’ has a meaning of, ‘to stand around.’ And isn’t that what you do when you fish the way you have been taught to fish? You ‘stand around, waiting’? Also interesting is that ‘stand’ can mean, an ‘opportunity.’
Was Jesus giving them an ‘opportunity’ to change their ‘conditions and circumstances’? An ‘opportunity’ to understand they did not have to ‘agree’ with what they had been taught about God and man.
A God they had been taught was the real God, with no proof that He was real? And that man is made of the flesh, when he is not.
Isn’t it most interesting to know different meanings for words? So think about this…Jesus wanted the fishermen to ‘follow’ him…not follow him around the countryside…but to ‘follow’…to listen to him and to accept him as their guide.
Did Jesus want the fishermen to stop agreeing with worldly conditions and worldly circumstances and worldly beliefs and handed down opinions of God and his Creation and to ‘follow’ which in this case means to ‘listen to him and he would guide and teach them truths of a real God. And by understanding the real God, it would change their human conditions and circumstances.
Another meaning for the word ‘net’ is ‘anything that serves to ensnare.’ Ensnare is to, ‘trap and take power over someone.’
Was Jesus telling them that if they left their old ways and old beliefs and followed him, he would show them the truth of things and they could regain their power and be set free from their human conditions and circumstances.
Could that be what Jesus was really saying to them? That they could take back their God given power of freedom?
And maybe Jesus wanted them to understand that there were different ways to fish.
Since a meaning for the word ‘fish’ is ‘to search, to seek,’ did Jesus want to show them how, if they would leave their nets he would show them how to ‘search and seek’ and then to become fishermen of men?
They must have believed in Jesus
ARE YOU READY TO LEAVE YOUR NETS
What do you think when you think of what this passage could mean. Could it mean Jesus was telling man that God lived in a mansion? A large house in the sky? And in Gods mansion there were lots of rooms? So, could that passage have a different meaning? Lets see.
Here are some meanings for the word ‘mansion. A ‘residence’ and a residence is a place to ‘reside’ in. Now the meaning for ‘reside’ is interesting as it means,
‘existing in something as a permanent and inseparable element ’
What exist in man, that is
‘permanent and is an inseparable element?
His Consciousness, because mans Consciousness is
‘permanent and inseparable’ from him.
Then does that mean that what is ‘existing’ in us that we call God, is really our Consciousness, and in this Consciousness there are many ‘rooms’?
Rooms like, love, hate, sin, sickness, joy, sadness and ‘room’ like wisdom, or understanding, to name a few of many ‘rooms’? Yes it could mean that, because ALL things do take place in some part, some ‘room’ in our Consciousness.
Man can know nothing without his Consciousness.
Think, isn’t it Consciousness that exist in us?
Is it also not true that there are ‘many mansions, many rooms, many areas within Consciousness?
And is it not true that without Consciousness we have no body, no reality at all, because it is only Consciousness that tells you anything, so without your Consciousness telling you have a body, or a world, you do not have anything.
Was that what these Bible passages are trying to tell us? That we are not in or of our body, but that we, in reality exist in and as Consciousness?
Is this Bible passage saying
Consciousness is God?
What else could it mean? Certainly not that there is some God sitting in some mansion, some big house waiting for man to come to him.
How could man come to God, if he is already IN God?
Can man get out of God? Out of Consciousness?
And it is true
Yes, we do ‘exist’ in and of Consciousness.
So, how do you understand what many ‘mansions’ means?
The word ‘many’ tells you…there is more than just this earthy ‘room’ we are now in.
Is it possible that one of the ‘rooms’ is our earthly experience?
If it is, then we can WALK OUT of that ‘room’ and enter another one.
