Conclusion: The Kingdom Within

“Even as Jesus became a complete person,” John Sanford says, “so our calling is to imitate him, not by mimicking what we suppose to have been his virtues, but by approximating completeness ourselves as much as possible. In this way, we manifest Christ within us.”

The Wilderness Road


The early Christians lived under the impression that the world would soon end, so much so that Saint Paul advised them to avoid marriage if at all possible. They were so wrapped up in the conventional thinking of their times that they couldn’t even begin to comprehend the dynamic new psychological developments for humanity made possible by Jesus Christ.

It is all very Zen-ish, but the Western world was not prepared for that, and as a result Christian theology never developed a philosophy of the future or a theology of the workings of the Holy Spirit. That is why Christianity must now take into account the psychological dimension of Jesus’ sayings.

“Even as Jesus became a complete person,” John Sanford says, “so our calling is to imitate him, not by mimicking what we suppose to have been his virtues, but by approximating completeness ourselves as much as possible. In this…

Man as House – C.S. Lewis

Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.

~C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

DNA Analogy

I had a few more thoughts to add to this post, which is about our DNA coding. Check out the original post here.

The post begins similar to the following, but I expanded on an analogy that was only mentioned briefly…

The Word of God is physically evident through our DNA coding. Our souls receive commands from our body’s “programmer”. This is the same programmer who wrote our program into existence, in order to serve a specific need or purpose. This programmer installs updates and patches to our system as problems arise, in order to create more effective ways of serving our “software’s” intended purpose. Just as we would authorize a computer software update by clicking ‘ok’ or ‘install’, we must also authorize our programmer’s updates. We can do this by listening to what we know needs to be fixed within our essence/being, and then remaining proactive in our “patch’s” resolution to ensure proper installation and function. This update will also help us to better recognize future malfunctions prior to a system crash.

So we can choose to seek a higher state of function, by listening to and doing what will incrementally better ourselves over time, with an end goal of divinity/oneness with our “programmer”. Or we can stubbornly dwell unguarded, in the realm of the physical world, allowing our systems to run without security because we are too busy to simply click the ‘ok’ button. In turn, risking a life full of wasted time and continued frustration.  

It is your machine after all, so the choice is yours alone to make… All you need is a little cognition and patience. Please click okay and choose wisely?!

Man’s Evolutionary DNA Leap Blocked by Electromagnetic Frequencies and Chemtrails ?

The Word of God is physically evident through our DNA coding.
Our Souls receive the commands from God’s “coding” and we can either choose to seek a higher state with a goal of being one with God, or we can stubbornly dwell in the physical realm until decide to get it right and take note of what is being commanded through the Spirit.

Constantine’s Christianity

Raphael's Vision of the Cross

I’ve recently discovered the amazing revelations that can be made by taking a look at the best selling book in history, and reading it with new eyes.  What is that book, you might ask?  The Bible, of course!  I know, I know…. it was forced down your throat as a child, especially if you live(d) down south in the ‘Bible Belt’.  You “know” all of the popular stories and parables, as well as the “fact” that it is simply man’s interpretation of historical events with no real application for your life in today’s modern world.  You might also know about the recently found Dead Sea Scrolls and other texts discovered within the past century that, lo and behold, have been excluded from the Bible as we currently know it today.  Okay, so since you already know all of this, I would like to share a story with you, that you may not know…

“Rome Capitole Statue Constantin” by Jean-Christophe BENOIST

Constantine “The Great” was the first Roman emperor to convert to Christianity, ultimately promoting its tolerance and overseeing its foundation within Roman Empire.  He thought that by unifying the “rebel Christians,” whose varying beliefs were causing many divisions within the empire, and progressively threatening the power of the Roman State as a whole, that he would be able to regain control of the masses by using religion as his political tool.  He aimed to accomplish his mission of unification, by calling the first ecumenical council, the Council of Nicaea.

At the Council of Nicaea, Constantine brought together leaders from various Christian factions, with the objective to standardize the religious beliefs of the time, into one unified Christian doctrine that was to be accepted by all people identifying themselves as Christians.  While he did not actually write the words found in the Bible, Constantine did have final authority over its composition, whose fundamental context correlated with the unified vision of Christianity that was agreed upon at the Council of Nicaea.  Any religious writings or beliefs opposed to the new, “unified” Christian doctrine were eventually erased from history, and people found spreading alternate interpretations were put to death.  Hence the reason we are only today finding some of these ancient, hidden manuscripts buried in tombs with priests, and hidden in caves in clay jars.

Unfortunately, the intentions of Constantine’s declaration and his implementation of a unified Christian Doctrine, only led to further disagreements and divisions among the Church.  Additional ecumenical councils convened in the pursuit of unity, but dissension only grew stronger as time passed, ultimately contributing to the fall of the Roman Empire altogether.

And this, my friends, is the foundation of present-day Christian doctrine – a faith built upon controversy, power over the masses, censorship, division, and disunity.  Which familiarly, are the characteristics of Judaism that Jesus himself opposed, and was historically known to have been put to death in protest of, by the Romans.

Let’s take a look at the words and messages of the Bible with new eyes.  Try to put preconceived notions out of your mind and just read it as you would this article.  Keep an open mind and always cross-reference the New Testament with the Old Testament, as there is great significance in the correlation of the two.  Let me know what kind of new discoveries you make, and we might be on to something, here! 😉

101 Positive Words


Over the years, I’ve compiled a list of words that [I feel] have positive attributes associated with them.  At first glance, some of the words may seem as though they should probably be on a different list – I mean, how is ‘comprehend’ a positive word?!  Well, think about how it feels to be challenged by an idea, only to later grasp its significance and look back with full comprehension.  Looking back, you realize how far your understanding has grown on this particular idea, and that understanding, is a very positive thing, my friend!  If we are not constantly gaining insight, we are either losing it or simply maintaining the status quo, and to me?  Those attributes are anything but positive!
