Do you know The Way?

The Way of Truth.

The Way of Eternal Life.


It is worshipping God in Spirit and Truth. It is partaking of the divine nature. It is synergia with the divine energies. It is becoming divine by God's grace. It is union with Christ Jesus.

It is The True faith. Worshipping the undivided consubstantial Trinity.


It is the path of the spiritual athlete, the one who forgoes the fleeting vanities and insatiable passions of this life, the one who allows themselves to be purified by the waters of Truth in order that they confrom to the image of Truth.

It is The Way of Peace, of freedom. Those who abide in The Way hold humanity back from slavery and destruction, until The Way is forgotten and people destroy themselves.

The Way is True Religion, and it is revealed to all who sincerely seek it.

Do you know that Christian Colonialists literally conquered more cultures, pillaged more people and reigned more ruthless then any such thing since Genghis Khan?

It would certainly be sin otherwise.

Point being, deviation is where there are problems. We are all at different stages of development too.

I certainly get that impression.

Realistically, I don't know what goes on in everyone's personal lives.

I get along with just about everybody, even people who hate eachother. I do my best to encourage peace among those I know.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Are you then a son of god?

"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."


And you are led by  "the Spirit of God" making you then a son of god.


I find this interesting because I have argued many times that " son of God" is simply a title and nothing more.



There are many references to son and sons of god in the scripture, but for some unfathomable reason, Christians seem to believe that it means something more when the title is tagged onto the Christ, which itself only means  anointed and  not son of god.

In the case of Christ, it is distinct in that The Christ is the incarnate Word of God.

A man can not save, only God saves. 

And in becoming incarnate, all of creation has been sanctified by the presence of God.

In a strange way, we all know God without knowing God.

Someone who abides in The Way is good by the virtue of divine grace.

It is The Way of Peace

Would you and your congregation consider yourselves to be at peace , peacemakers and peaceful, Mopac ?



"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."

And you are led by  "the Spirit of God" making you then a son of god.

Is your title  then - Mopac -  the son of god?

Jesus was clearly pointed out to be the son of David, this too would make David a son of god but we know that David was also the son of Jesse that too would make Jesse also a son of god and his father Obed would also be a son of god and Obed's father was Boaz who was also a son of god..........


Do you see what is happening here Mopec? these biblical figures are simply titled 'son of god', including Jesus. They are not literal offspring or seed of any god.  Does not Jesus himself say that ' just by simply calling for peace, you are a son of god' ? And I am of the understanding that "the way" was just another sect whose teachings Jesus had adopted as his own teaching or in part at least.  It is widely believed that Jesus borrowed from many sects and belief systems including Confucianism .. There were literary hundreds of sects ( and messiahs) around in Palestine at the time of Jesus who all believed that  their way to be ..
 " the way".
