Re: Does Jesus/Yahweh love us or is he stalking us?

Oxigen, the great second, third, fourth AND fifth century Greek commentator on the Bible said that it is absolutely possible to take these texts literally. If you interpret them, then one possible interpretation is the same as the text. Please understand, you don't read it literally; you just inter...

Thank you for the welcome. I am a Bible-believing follower of Christ. "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." - John 8:12 If Jesus is the light, the truth, then any person who rejects...

If it's okay with you I'll just repeat my book recommendation. It's all there.

Re: Does Jesus/Yahweh love us or is he stalking us?

Love without reciprocity, works and deeds, according to scriptures and Jesus’ own words, not that a supernatural Jesus ever existed, is not a true love. All you need to do, to know the truth of that notion; is to look at your own standards of love. You would not love someone who does not return tha...

Re: Does Jesus/Yahweh love us or is he stalking us?

"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household." - Matthew...

Re: Does Jesus/Yahweh love us or is he stalking us?

I said "effortless thought (no interior monologue) free Awareness." Awareness is interior dialog as it requires the mind to recognize that awareness. Her is how Gnostic Christian Jesus terms that vision. Perhaps you will understand my position more if you know it. Gnostic Jesus was questioned as to...

Re: Does Jesus/Yahweh love us or is he stalking us?

I disagree that mind (thoughts) leads to treasure. Mind is the source of delusion/illusion. My Satguru Ramana Maharshi spoke of remaining in the heart and not "going out" in awareness into thought and sensations. A nice place to visit for a mental rest but not a nice place to live. But hey, if you ...

Re: Who has more control of our thinking; God or Satan?

"I am a jealous God" does not necessarily refer to other gods, but may refer to anything that diverts ones attention from the focus on God's will, things like money, power and influence. IOW, give me everything and I will keep your insecurities satisfied. It will only cost you your freedom of thoug...

Re: Does Jesus/Yahweh love us or is he stalking us?

Mind and body arise from me/Self. Concepts of god are a result of the feeling humans have that we have forgotten something but we're not sure what that something is. We are beginning to remember our divinity, but still haven't yet fully realized it. The Self is "god", but not yet fully realizing it...
