"What is now called the Christian religion has existed among the ancients and was not absent from the beginning of the human race" - St. Augustine
There is much open debate over the life of Jesus or properly Yahushua and his role in the world. It can not be denied, by any educated thinker well read and truly educated in theology, philosophy, and the Esoteric or Occult nature of things many myths and ceremonies, of saviors and Gods did arise from the Drama in the heavens. Denial is based in Dogma and ignorance, fear and superstitions alone.
This is not to discount or dismiss Jesus / Yahushua the Man, the teacher and mystic known as the Nazarene.
Yahushua the human, and "the Christ" in the modern Bible are the same in many ways, yet very different. It is a paradox: Yahushua the man was a Sage, a mystic, entrenched in the divine mysteries of Antiquity, Egypt & the Essenes, He is the Nazarene; a philosopher king. Yahushua "the Christ" or more properly Christos in Greek (anointed one, personified divinity within all humanity) in the Bible is in ways attributed to the drama in the heavens, 12 apostles (Houses of the Zodiac) around the Son (Sun), Born on the 25th of December (winter Solstice) (Summer in reality of the man), He was crucified (solar cross) and resurrected (in the spring), to bring redemption and new life. This is the same story repeated through out many of the worlds religions and not unique to the religion of Christianity alone. The Drama of the Heavens is also referred to, as It is sun worship, (though it was not really "Sun" worship, as the Sun or Fire only represented a deeper meaning or representation of the divine light of the creator) and personification of the creative generative spirit, nature, i.e. God or more properly in Judeo / Christian belief IHVH = יהוה.
It is known and not secret to all who choose to research for themselves that when the Holy Roman Church destroyed what they called the "Pagan" religions of the ancients, that they took parts of stories, rituals and beliefs and merged them with the beliefs of the day, edited and mistranslated the original Hebrew Texts and even outright invented things to compete with other beliefs of the time. For example you will not find "Christmas" the Holiday any where in the bible, this was created, and not denied by the Roman Church much later to compete with the Roman festival honoring the persian God Mithras.
Christ is highly symbolic for Christianity, but most Christians are unaware of what and why the Church did certain things and why today things are the way they are. It can be highly doubted that the Man, the great teacher Yahushua (Jesus), one of the greatest master teachers to ever live (who never claimed to be God , but a son of the divine creator, if the teachings are approached properly and not taken literally) would not approve of or wanted a religion modeled after him. He never claimed to be יהוה, only a Son of יהוה (as the Sons of Men, become Sons of God יהוה), through rebirth, resurrection, to be born again through spiritual truth, philosophy, of consciousness, to unite with the father, the ONE from which all else came.
After all the religion known as Christianity in its true unadulterated, non dogmatic form, had existed for many years before the man known as Yahushua appeared. He spoke in parables and preached an exoteric message to the masses, veiled in mystery so they might understand certain universal truths and laws. Unfortunately many were taken literally, and turned into Dogmas.
He also taught another doctrine in private, Esoteric to his disciples, or "initiates" of the mysteries, those who could see, understand and hear truth, based on direct Gnosis, and experience, free of superstition and dogma.
The Parables of Yahushua in the bible convey much to those who may see with open minds, but are taken literally by those not educated in any other manner but to believe what they are told and shown without further explanation.
Matthew 13:11 "Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given."
Luke 6:20, 22 "Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of יהוה... Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake."
Matthew 18:3-4 "Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven."
Many parts of the bible contain and conceal the esoteric truths or doctrine taught by the man the religion has been modeled after. For example, The kingdom of Heaven is on Earth; i.e. the saying of "Heaven on Earth", as well the way to illumination or realization is to "Be as little children", having the uncorrupted minds of children, OPEN minds, free of dogma.
Ye are the Temple of the Living God, "YaHuWah", the human body, nature. The way to find Truth is through intuition and experience. The Lost Gospel of Thomas, considered Gnostic by many "fundamental" Christians, also points the way to the esoteric nature of the teachings.
It is important to look into the esoteric nature of things and not what is presented to the mainstream in religion and philosophy alike and you will find many keys to the mysteries of Life. There are many reasons that certain things are portrayed in certain manners, this is obvious and clear to anyone who will choose to think for themselves.
What is today known as the modern "organized" Christian Religion, is young in the eyes of time, of history. Words have been changed throughout history, the original Hebrew text is lost in translation, with this phrases and meanings and truth. Books, Gospels, verses have been omitted, and dare some say invented to portray the message of the Church when they first came to power, and even now, through violence and oppression in the beginning to instill a matrix of control. To enforce a certain Dogma and Doctrine. After all the church was the power, today considers itself the true seat of religion, issued direct from God himself as they claimed in the beginning, ordaining Kings and such over the meek.
It is up to us, to live the life, to be as the wise man known as Yahushua did live, through Philosophy, Spirituality, oneness with knowing through direct experience. The Laws of Nature, of God the most high creator of all things, through Gnosis (Divine Knowledge), Hermetics, truth based on Love, experience, divinity being the doctrine of life. There are always 2 sides to everything, this is the duality of the human condition, of consciousness. It is easy to label things you do not want found out by the majority evil and the work of the devil. What better way to control minds than to label things based on fear and half truths.
All preconceived notions and belief systems not based on direct personal knowledge and experience must be cast aside.
"For a moment, stop thinking in terms of "God" as a personified being, a man in the sky. God is the uncomprehensible first cause, the source, the creator of all that is. The LAW that governs all Laws, of Nature, the universe, etc; whatever label one wishes to give. God is the catalyst, the Consciousness behind all Consciousness, the supreme Idea and Virtue of all things. God is the Superior filtered through the inferiors. All things are reflections of the divine original source, of God, or first cause, thus the ALL is in all and all is in the ALL" - MDE
