CHRISTIANITY TEACHES A GOD OF VIOLENCE

CHRISTIANITY TEACHES A GOD OF VIOLENCE

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

Today, as I read John Smallman’s channeled message from Saul, I was struck by the contrast between what Saul was saying and what Christianity teaches.  Saul’s message may be read at:  https://pathwaytoascension.wordpress.com/2013/11/07/you-can-only-be-happy-if-you-express-your-true-nature/

I single out Christianity simply because it is the religion with which I am familiar.  I am, in no way, saying that the other religions depict a God of absolute, unconditional love.  Religions have been the basis for wars, hate crimes, discrimination, and racism for thousands of years.  This is because religions have been used by the power elite for controlling the people through fear.  But, first, the people must conceive of a God they fear.

Christianity mixes love with violence in its depiction of God.  In other words, God loves us, so he devises a violent plan to save us from yet another of His/Her violent creations–hell.  Thus we have a God who is love and a God who is violent.  We naturally fear a schizophrenic God.

No wonder we have such a violent world!!!

Christianity is basically the teaching found in the scriptural verse John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall have eternal life.” 

There are four basic teachings in this one verse—a verse that churches have children memorize at an early age.  However, when read or recited, this one verse is filled with subliminal messages heard beneath the spoken words by our subconscious minds.

“God so loved the world….”   This opening statement prepares us subliminally to hear what God did to demonstrate His/Her love for the world.  It also sends the subliminal message that God demonstrates Her/His love for us in a particular (conditional love) way.

“…that He sent His only begotten Son….”  This phrase sends the subliminal message that only one of God’s creation is His Son.  This renders the rest of us different and not a natural part of God’s family—thus separate from Father/Mother God.  As a result, humanity can be taught to worship Jesus as different and far above us, which is contrary to Jesus’ teachings.

Jesus taught us, quoting a Psalm he wrote during his lifetime as Asaph, Psalm 82:6 – “ye are gods.”  (John 10:34)  In John 14:12, Jesus tells his disciples:  “you shall do greater things than these….”  Jesus, in no way, set himself apart from us.  Instead, he taught “ye are gods.”

“…that whosoever believes in Him….”  Subliminally, we hear “this is the only way.”

“…shall have eternal life.”  Our subconscious minds hear:  “not everyone will have eternal life.”  We also hear eternal life begins only after we die.  The fact that “eternal” means no beginning and no ending loses its true significance.  This mis-use of the word “eternal” has enabled Christianity to omit the fact of reincarnation in its teaching, with the horrendous result that we have lost conscious connection with our soul and its plan for incarnation and been turned into a physical body that is dust you are and to dust shall you return.”  (Genesis 3:19)  Thus, fear of death becomes an inherent characteristic by which we can be controlled by those who choose to do so.

This verse—containing so much subliminal disinformation—is known by many Christians as “God’s plan of salvation from an eternity of burning in hell.”  It naturally conjures up two very vivid violent pictures depicting Mother/Father God’s action in our world.

Many Christians, including many who gave up on religion, live with these violent pictures hovering in their subconscious minds.

Now that Earth humans reside on the 4th dimension, where our sole lesson is LOVE, we  need to give up the God of violence we have been taught to believe in.

Saul’s message briefly describes the world of unconditional love that is reality.  When we ascended from the 3rd dimension of duality—a world that was total illusion—in December 2012, we moved to the 4th dimension until we learn how to live in Love … until we get to know our Mother/Father God of absolute, unconditional Love … and learn to relax in that world of Love … to be who we truly are—gods of Love … and to treat all others with the unconditional Love in which we are forever enfolded.

Then, we can ascend to the 5th dimension of Love & Light where suffering will be no more!

Love-432

LOVE, not violence, is the Divine Plan of Salvation from all that would render us less that who we truly are!

We can learn to abide by Jesus’ teachings and LOVE ONE ANOTHER.  These lessons will be helpful:  https://pathwaytoascension.wordpress.com/2012/11/25/all-that-is-hidden-will-be-revealed/

YOU CAN ONLY BE HAPPY IF YOU EXPRESS YOUR TRUE NATURE

You can only be happy if you express your true nature

11/06/2013 by John Smallman

Ascension is the event to focus on, as it is a major part of your awakening process, and you are very close to it.  Yes, you keep hearing that from numerous channels, but it is true, and you are bringing it into being by your collective intent, so do not allow disappointment with the apparent but unreal delays to cloud your vision, instead strengthen your intent and desire for its arrival, and make it happen, as indeed you are doing.  If you could see and feel the Love we have for you your anxieties and doubts would just fall away, so do not forget to ask for a loving hug whenever you go within to listen to us, then relax into it, and you will feel it because you intend to.  So often skepticism and doubt block the sense, the feeling, the knowing awareness that you could be experiencing of our Love for you if you would only open your hearts to receive It and bathe in the soothing balm in which we have enfolded you.

We shall keep reminding you of our Love for you because we wish to make it clear, as we have told you so many times, that Love is the answer to every issue, in every situation, Love is always the answer, period.  There is nothing else.  Love is everything that exists because our divine Source is Love.  True It has many forms but every one of them is unconditionally loving, accepting, compassionate and healing.  All else, all that is not of Love, is illusory, which is why all else continually fails to deliver what you hope for and desire.  To manifest your true wishes and desires be loving, always.  Your true wishes and desires are loving.  Those that are not loving are egoic and self-centered dreams of judgment, condemnation, and punishment, that you would like to impose on those with whom you disagree or whom you find unacceptable, thus destroying them.  Mad fantasies indeed that should make it abundantly clear to you that you are not coming from Love, and consequently you are seeking something that is unreal, unachievable and in every aspect utterly unsatisfying for you.

Love is your nature, your true nature, anything unloving that you attempt to engage with or use for any purpose will always lead to dismay and disappointment because it is unreal.  Anything you seem to achieve through unloving thoughts, words, or activities will turn to ash, to dust, because being unreal those things cannot last, and any satisfaction gained from their acquisition will be short-lived.  Those who live unlovingly are forever seeking new joys, new experiences, new forms of satisfaction or happiness purely because those previously gained have failed to provide lasting satisfaction, have in fact failed to last and have become grave disappointments. Only loving ways bring lasting satisfaction, and if you are honest with yourselves you do know this.

By being loving in every situation in which you engage, mentally, emotionally, or physically you release all that is unreal thus enabling yourselves to see the Source in everyone instead of the damaged egoic aspect that is worn as a mask to hide what is real.  You have done a good job of convincing yourselves that to be loving is dangerous and that doing so makes you dangerously vulnerable.  But you also know from personal experience that when you act or engage from your true nature, lovingly and compassionately, you are instantly rewarded by feelings of satisfaction, contentment, and even joy.  Love’s nature is to give, and not giving is extremely unnatural and leads to an experience of meaninglessness in your existence which you then have to hide from yourselves by denial or some other form of subterfuge because it is such a frightening prospect.

You can only be happy if you express your true nature through loving thoughts, words, and actions, but your egos keep trying to persuade you that to follow that path will lead to betrayal, because being loving lays you open to being taken advantage of and abused, and from that poverty must surely follow in both relationships and material well-being.  And yet, when you let your egos guide you, you find little if any satisfaction because you are always expecting to be betrayed or taken for a fool and must therefore be extremely cautious in all situations.  So by following your egos’ guidance to avoid betrayal you find yourselves expecting and fearing it almost constantly, and taking precautions to avoid being caught out or cheated.  It is a vicious circle, an endless loop of fearful wariness that inhibits love, and it just does not work.

You have to be Love, which is what you are, and offer it constantly.  Waiting to receive It from another does not work because that is in and of itself unloving behavior which always leads to disappointment.  To receive Love offer It, nothing else works, ever.  And deep within yourselves you know this, but the human life experience that you are engaged in so often shows you unreality – anger, resentment, bitterness – your defenses against all that you fear, and which are truly unreal.  You can only come out from under the heavy blanket of fear by loving – others, and yourselves – there is no other way, which is what all the spiritual masters have been demonstrating to you for eons.

God, the Source of all that exists, is the divine field of energy from which and in which all arises, and that is pure unadulterated and infinite unconditional Love.  When, you accept fear (either acknowledged or denied) as part of your lives you are choosing to shut out Love which is who you are, your divine and eternal nature bestowed on you by God at the moment of your creation.  Fear is unreal, a figment of your imaginations, an aspect of the illusion which you have enthusiastically embraced because it seemed thrilling, and that, surely, is insane?  Yet you continue to hold on to it as though it was the only reality, and against which you have to take protective measures.

You are all a part, an individualized aspect of your Source, God, your heavenly Father and divine Mother, because all is oneness.  But you have allowed yourselves to become so beholden to the illusion and all its seemingly mysterious characteristics that it seems you are enslaved by it, trapped within it.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  You chose, every one of you chose to experience the fear and confusion of the illusion for lessons that you wished to learn quickly so that you could move forwards with your spiritual evolution as rapidly as possible.  The downside of those choices was the seeming unshakable reality the illusion seems to present to you once you are within it.  It seems to you that you are weak, defenseless, and insignificant beings in a vast and threatening environment in which you have to protect yourselves from the elements of extreme heat and cold in order to survive. And you are becoming increasingly aware, as your science stretches its vision and its understanding of the universe, of the incredibly narrow band of essential conditions that are required to enable your continuing but uncertain survival as humans in this enormous and inhospitable environment.

You were created in Love, as you know very well, by your loving Source Whose Will for you is eternal joy and happiness.  It is only by denying your awareness of His infinite Love for you that you could continue to convince yourselves that the illusion, with all the pain, suffering, and fear in which it apparently enfolds you, could be real.  Deep within you know it is unreal, but until you make the choice to express and share Love in every moment, and actually do it, you will continue to find the illusion seemingly very real.

As humans embodied on the Earth plane it is very difficult for you to recognize this and live it constantly.  Doubts and skepticism are very powerful aspects of the illusion that hold it together and confirm your fears, and it is those pillars of the illusion that you need to let go of.  That is Faith in God, and the power of the various enticing and threatening aspects of the illusion just dissolve in the face of it.  Go within daily, three or four times if possible, and reconfirm that Faith in God’s Love for you so that the illusion shows itself to you for what it is, an unreal environment in which confusion and chaos hide Reality from you, but only for so long as you choose to accept it as real.

You are all aspects of the Divine, eternally safe and lovingly embraced in the Presence of God.  Open yourselves to the awareness of this and let the illusion collapse, crumble, and dissolve.

With so very much love, Saul.

 

LET’S PREPARE FOR A NEW WORLD!

LET’S PREPARE FOR A NEW WORLD!

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

The energies characterizing our present world are a confused mixture of some bemoaning the conditions of the “old” political, educational, and religious systems while others work to create the New World of Love, Peace, & Abundance for all.  Between the two extremes, we witness the last vestiges of a society that has been saturated with messages of violence:  “Have a problem?  Solve it by violence.”

According to many who have dedicated their lives to bringing about a New World, major changes are on the verge of taking place.  These changes will involve learning that 99.9 % of what Earth humans have been taught are lies.  The world that we have known is crumbling as increasingly we learn of lies on which we have based our lives and world view.

Because in Truth, Love is all that is, Earth humans are being assisted by our brothers and sisters who have ascended in consciousness before us.  We will very soon meet these sisters and brothers who are Earth’s Ascended Masters and our galactic family.

The groundwork for our New World has been created behind the scenes and is ready to be rolled out into public view as the old world collapses.  However, Earth humans are to be the “actual creators” of this New World.  The Ascended Masters and our galactic family are here to assist.

At present, we reside on the 4th dimension where learning to live as examples of Unconditional Love is our major lesson.  We are in the process of learning to move from the 3rd dimensional competitive, violent (physical, emotional, or mental) ways of relating to others … to … beholding and relating to all others—regardless of differences—with unconditional love.  Perhaps the most difficult lesson of all is integrating the Truth that Love is all that is into our lifestyles—living within the understanding that there is nothing to fear … that we are lovingly cared for in every way … that we are never alone … that we can TRUST we truly are One with all that is and that All that is is Love.

Jesus incarnated 2000 years ago to demonstrate with his own life the Way to ascend into the higher consciousness that is present on the 5th dimension.  Our sojourn on the 4th dimension lasts only as long as it takes us to become beings of Love, thereby qualifying us to ascend to the 5th dimension.

The series of lessons included at the following URL can be of assistance in learning to live in a world where Love is all that is.

As mentioned above, we will very soon be meeting in person some of Earth’s Ascended Masters.  The following article introduces the Ascended Masters who are dedicated to assisting Earth humans move forward in our spiritual evolution.

During this short interval between today and the actual time of overt major changes, studying the above can assist us in preparing for our giant leap in evolutionary consciousness.
