Saint Paul

Have you wondered O’Man of the consequences of closely following your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? Do you ponder your position in Me and do you wonder at my reclusiveness? Where am I to be found you wonder. What and who are you? Why do things seem to become almost mundane as you pursue understanding. Do you find us as separate while you read and consider us as One? Why do things seem to remain the same in many respects while simultaneously you move toward an almost shrouded existence between two diametrically opposed points of existence? The mind does call out directional pursuits and yet you flounder because of a pronounced hesitancy that seems impossible to resolve which restricts movement toward a preconditioned concept change. A quandary man calls it. Can you, as you are, disappear to find in your stead Me, the Christ as the living one embodied in you the former man of flesh? Then have we not come to the point of contention?  Christ lives not I says the Apostle. There is need for the veil between us to be rendered torn and the Mind of Christ to step to the fore as the former man does find himself at wits end. Can it be said you Robert like Saul find yourself on the Road to Damascus? And why Robert do you persecute Me? And can there be a changing of mind? Can the driven man of flesh be converted to a man of God? Can a man who pursues his own conception of right mindedness and action be found guilty of persecuting the Christ in him now regulated to a place of in-consequence all while believing there is a God of heaven? Saul too believed in a God according to Jewish Law but yet sought to destroy those fledgling few Christians attempting to follow Jesus. Now that Jesus has risen and has sent the Comforter to guide you to Truth why is it you deny Him by not hearing the still small voice. Is the busyness of your mind so preoccupied by the things of the world and the comforts of the flesh that you cannot distinguish Spirit from flesh thereby rendering advancement toward the Kingdom of God to no effect?  Who by taking thought can add one inch to his stature?

Our natural mind is not capable of comprehending the empirical perfection of God. Instead it erroneously ascribes human characteristics to its omnipotent creator. This regretful situation is called “anthropomorphism.” And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man. The carnal mind cannot forgive, so it invented Hell and blamed it on God. The carnal mind cannot comprehend God’s purpose for evil, so it invented an all powerful Devil. The carnal mind doesn’t like suffering, so it invented the Rapture. The carnal mind wants earthly splendor, so it invented the Gospel of Prosperity. The carnal mind wants to be the boss, so it invented the Free Will of man. The carnal mind of man is the god of Modern Christianity. This idolatrous deity is nothing more than an assemblage of human failings. Arising from the perverse limitations of fallen men, this god is stupid, weak, fearful, and vengeful. The god of Modern Christianity is thought to have failed in the garden of Eden. Accordingly, he is now expected to fail as the savior of all men. Having no plan, no power, and no purpose, this incompetent bungler apparently leaves all the really important decisions to man. When men prove to be as foolish as he is, he is then supposed to demand the fiendish revenge of Eternal Torment.

All this can be averted, however, if anyone will put a penny in the plate, a cookie in their mouth, and flatter him with their lips- then this little god promises to reward them with earthly riches. This is putrid idolatry at its finest. Ye say that he is your God: Yet ye have not known him. The truth is quite the opposite, for God is not a man, neither is he governed by any human characteristics. God is not subject to physical laws- The bush burned with fire, and was not consumed. God is not afraid of sorrow- The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. God does not experience doubt- Who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me. God does not know fear- I am understanding; I have strength. God is never confused- Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom. God does not accumulate wealth- For all those things hath mine hand made. God originates terror- He doeth according to his will in the army of heaven. God is not affected by evil- I make peace, and create evil. God is not subject to death- Having neither beginning of days, nor end of life. God’s actions always produce love- Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? And he absolutely cannot know failure- All things are of God.

God is not human. Though he creates human emotions, he is not subject to any. If his total sovereignty seems incomprehensible, then you have been beguiled by the carnal god of Organized Christianity. Flee this bloodthirsty harlot and toss her puny god in the garbage can of religious dogma. Thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. Cease now to drag God down to your level, for he exists far above the human sphere. God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands; neither is worshiped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things. God’s glorious plan for every man is beyond question. His power is absolute, and nothing has ever contradicted his will. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. In the ages to come, all things that have occurred in the heavens or on the earth, will be seen to manifest the lovingkindness of God. But for the moment it does not always appear that way. But now we see not yet all things put under him. This is because your comprehension of God’s mind is limited by your short, mortal, perspective. Your sojourn is a momentary vapor. Your view of the workings of God is but a snapshot, a single still frame in a very long movie. To know God personally, we must leave these limitations behind and meet God in the timeless, solitary, self-existent state, where all things work to accomplish his pleasure. Things may not look right to you today, but just trust him and wait. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Saul became St. Paul and wrote much of the New Testament what is it you will do my fellow Christian?
