>>17172540 I agree. At the centre of it all, it is all we see. and the burden is wanting to hear others as full of life because of it as you are, knowing how pure and simple and good life is. the burden is having to be your own personal christ.
>"for many will come in My name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many."
We need to be careful into thinking this way.
There is always going to be a Master to Disciple relationship, and Christians believe Christ IS God, so being "your own christ" is like saying "be your own god" which in the way we have the ability to control our destiny to certain extents, we are like God, and can posses many of His qualities.
>>17172612 i mean being close with god leaves us feeling crucified often because we do what we know we must, not what we want, and we watch everyone else do what they will. we can only hope they will see.
>>17172630 those who truly understood his teachings got it though. it is about ignorance. if you are keen you can find out for yourself what jesus was about, if you feel afraid and like you need god not that you want god then religion will force ideas into your head and you will miss the whole point of what was going on.
>>17172643 >"if the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first"
When we get persecuted, how do we imagine how He was persecuted? Nowadays we get sad but back then they were savage enough to nail Him too some wood, because He loves us and wants the soul inside to come to The Holy Spirit of God.
>>17172677 Not that anon, but I take the NT pretty literal >"look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly."
>>17172686 >fear I wonder how religion became a weapon. There is always One Eternal Religion (not to be confused with One World Religion). The eternal religion is about love, and service to God and to the world, so the world can thrive.
The world religion isn't concerned with your spiritual development as much as they are using is mask of religion to dominate cultute and all that other conspiracy crap.
>>17172686 Personally I take it literally. There may be parts that are metaphor though because we can't even comprehend the spiritual reality and we have to be given something we can relate to to understand it.
>>17172728 If we consider the "science" of God, we see that everything is going on under His control, meanwhile we still have our free will.
Naturally, if you believe in God, you will try to define Him as energy before all energies. Since we are also inhabiting this body as energy, this energy we have comes from God as the Source of the energy.
We are all parts of God, serving different functions, you could be like a finger and someone else be like the nail, important, but not the whole, but a piece of the whole.
Meanwhile, all of reality and existence inside of God, and yet all of that just being a very small aspect.
>>17172816 >free will Yes. Sometimes we do things because we want to, other times because we feel forced too. Maybe we don't want to hurt someone's feelings so we make strong implications on ourselves, and really the only one we trap is ourself.
Submission to God still gives free will, however you accept the bond that you will live simultaneously with the righteousness of God, not just for rewards received and the promise of blissful afterlife, but for mercy for when we come to God, we remember we forgot about Him.
>objective reality If you see 3 people in front of you, and I see 2 people in front of me, that means there are 7 people total, so from the Highest Perception, God would perceive what is objective reality, the realities of the 7 people plus everything that is in existence together.
