It would seem we are ready for this conversation at this time. As the world wakes up and what previously happened behind closed doors, behind closed boardroom doors, negotiated by the corporate boys club, is coming out for the world to see – and change. This is FANTASTIC!
But, it is just the beginning. Religious corruption needs to be revealed and the light of truth needs to shine on it and shine brightly! Christianity has been corrupted from the time is was written down that is why Christ never wrote anything down and why he said:
26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. John 14:26-27
He wasn’t leaving us a book to be re-written and corrupted.
Prof. Eberhard Nestle a noted Biblical scholar warned us in his Einfhrung in die Textkritik des griechischen Testaments: “Learned men, so called Correctores were, following the church meeting at Nicea 325 AD (Council of Nicea) , selected by the church authorities to scrutinize the sacred texts and rewrite them in order to correct their meaning in accordance with the views which the church had just sanctioned.”
in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, Prof. Bart D. Ehrman, tells us: “…theological disputes, specifically disputes over Christology, prompted Christian scribes to alter the words of scripture in order to make them more serviceable for the polemical task. Scribes modified their manuscripts to make them more patently ‘orthodox’ and less susceptible to ‘abuse’ by the opponents of orthodoxy.”
Lastly, the surviving Greek texts of the book of Acts are so radically different from each other, that it has been suggested that there were multiple versions written. In his book The Text of the New Testament, Dr. Vincent Taylor writes that “The manuscripts of the New Testament preserve traces of two kinds of dogmatic alterations: those which involve the elimination or alteration of what was regarded as doctrinally unacceptable or inconvenient, and those which introduce into the Scriptures proof for a favorite theological tenet or practice”.
We need to do as Yeshua instructed and go inward for spiritual teachings and re-develop our intuitive sense and our inner listening. We have the skills, they have merely laid dormant as we forced the Holy Spirit to step aside while we listened to flesh and blood “authorities” who told us – forced us – to follow them. While we re-engage the Holy Spirit and “we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen.”
What I can tell you, Paul was a coward and an egotist, his goal was to be the next Messiah. Mary Magdalene and the others apostles urged him to stop misleading people and he broke company with them because they didn’t accept him as their leader. Mary Magdalene went to France and kept communion with the Holy Spirit, she made many friends there whom she helped lead in following the ways of Yeshua. She taught them how to listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit and not be misguided by the world then as now. She taught them simple discernment:
Is my thought loving?
Does it bring peace?
Does it do no harm?
Then it is true.
If my thought or action causes derision, passion, anger, harm in any way it is not true and it is not THE WAY. She says as Yeshua did, “Follow me, be my friend, and find The Way.”
