the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse.

That's all this post is.

Genesis 3

1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

It's talking about being born-again into the Holy Spirit.

John 3:6-8


6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

1. What is currently being proclaimed as the Gospel and as Christianity is actually the antichrist system or the beast system that started with the yeast of the Pharisees and really took hold some time around the 4th century.

2. Within this beast system, comes the concept of eternal torment, sola scriptura, and other dogmatic doctrines. ( It is as if the beast system thrives off of these things to keep the masses believing this stuff. If you take away some of these doctrines then the whole thing collapses.)

3. The Bible is not the complete Word of God. There are inspired parts of it, but there are also parts where there are opinions.

4. Paul actually distorted the true Gospel. Paul has a very religious spirit. Thus, even when he converted to Christianity, he used that same zeal to bring in a yeast of the Pharisees, and thus we have Pauline Christianity today.

5. Jesus actually came to earth to show us the way to God. He showed us that we all have Christ within us, and He taught us how to be one with God.

6. His second coming that he speaks of is symbolic in terms that it will be in the hearts of people who come to know the Christ within themselves, and then God's Kingdom will be established on this earth through us and it will never end.

Please offer your comments and opinions on this.
Ha...Very Gnostic of you....

The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress. Job 37:23 Sounds super spiritual but in truth is the confession of someone who does not know God.

You men of Galilee,why stand you gazing into the sky ?.

The Spirit of God not so much Christianity teaches the Kingdom of God is within you, and Christ is in you,and greater is He that is in you. This might sound New, but is the teaching of the Ancient of days.

Can I get an amen ?.

Indeed some, if not most of the "Lost books of the bible" are clearly true scripture and should have been canonical. (not Infancy one and two....they sound like mere fables)
