What do the Fruits of the Spirit mean?

Posted 05-24-2022 at 10:38 PM by MysticPhD

The Holy Spirit is the "Mind of God." Jesus brought the Holy Spirit to His human mind so we have the "Mind of Christ" to understand the "Mind of God." Jesus Divinely revealed God's Holy Spirit as agape love and forgiveness on the Cross and described it in detail to His disciples. We are guided by the Holy Spirit when we are in the states of mind (fruits) of the "Mind of Christ." When we are in those states of mind we cannot sin or do anything wrong. We have...

What Is the Spiritual Fossil Record?

Posted 04-24-2022 at 10:09 AM by MysticPhD

I am sorry, I just assumed by now that most people know what I am referring to when I use the term spiritual fossil record. It is the accumulated literature of religions, legends, myths, and speculations about God and Reality from the earliest beginnings. (I see them as the "fossilized cognitive bones" of spiritual inspirations received).

There are amazing parallels in what I see as the dominant spiritual template in the inspirations about God. (I obviously attribute the...

Eschatology: The Real Unknown

Posted 03-20-2022 at 08:40 AM by MysticPhD

Our ancestors can be excused for thinking that everything that happens in this life or an afterlife is the result of God's judgments, but I am at a loss to understand why any educated modern intellect would ever accept such a concept. No subject is more characteristic of sermons and exhortations to spiritual repentance by fundamentalists than the ominous threat of hell-fire at the end of the world when God will pass final judgment on us all, so I feel compelled to deal with it. My own eschatology...

Trinity is Not a Mystery

Posted 01-20-2022 at 04:26 PM by MysticPhD

The Trinity is a misunderstanding based on our ancient ancestors' fear of Spirits and carnal mindset about persons. It was inferred from what was in the Bible wording that seemed to be attributing actions to separate persons no matter what Bible you use. Because the Bible is thought to be the infallible and inerrant word of God, this caused the interpretation of separate persons in one God. But the mistaken belief that the Bible is the inerrant and infallible word of God is a human invention to...

Understanding the Atonement

Posted 09-12-2021 at 08:42 PM by MysticPhD

I make no claim to a perfect understanding, but I have evinced a rational explanation of what Jesus represents and what He achieved that is internally consistent and compatible with the Christian narrative. Of course, it needs to be reinterpreted using the revealed character of God (Holy Spirit) as demonstrated by Jesus Christ as depicted on the Cross. It represents decades of effort and is my best understanding of what is and has been inscrutable for millennia.

My view removes the...
