For if we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins , but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries. What is Paul, the alleged author of the Epistle to the Hebrews, saying in these important words?
Because a believer who willfully sins after repentance and coming to the knowledge of TheWay, is a counterfeit believer who is an "apostate Yet, even the Epistle to the Romans which Luther did accept, totally rejects his counterfeit theology where it is warned that if the Christians in any manner condemn the Jews, that their own covenant will be rejected.
Why would the Apostle warn the Christians they should be afraid? This is an important question for the modern believer to understand. And the fact that the Christians failed to heed this warning of Paul, is the reason why the Church has been cut off, and the Christian world continues to dwell in a Spiritual Diaspora -- shackled by the very ignorance that they brought upon themselves. In a surviving excerpt of what has been historically known as the Gospel According to the Hebrews, which was reported to be the "original version of Matthew" that was composed in the Hebrew Characters, it was written: "If ye be in my bosom and do not the will of my Father which is in heaven, out of my bosom will I cast you away".
In the late nineteenth century a library of scriptures was uncovered which is today known as the Oxyrhynchus Papyri -- wherein this verse is found reading: "Though ye be gathered together with me in my bosom, if ye do not my commandants, I will cast you forth". This same verse of scripture is quoted in what is historically known as the 2nd Epistle of Clement, where it is written: "Let us, then, not only call Him Lord, for that will not save us.
Thus, this brings about the promised End Times or Second Coming within the mind and body of the faithful disciple of TheWay. These, and other such spiritual concepts of a Kingdom that comes within the lives of those who pick up their own cross and travail in TheWay, were totally unacceptable to the heathen Church of Rome, and the scriptures were corrupted in order to make them support the doctrines of the emperor. That the Church has abandoned the original teachings of Jesus, and have ignored the facts when it is demonstrated that the Church of Rome corrupted the very words of Go d spoken to man, means that until the Church itself repents of this great sin against the Holy Spirit, they will remain under a cloud of ignorance in an exile state in a Spiritual Diaspora.
The Trinity. There is sufficient evidence presented in the below that should cause the sincere Christian to question the foundation of modern-day church dogma. The doctrine of the Trinity was a long-held belief in the Gentile world, but was totally rejected by the Jews and the Old Testament scriptures.
Yet, the case against the doctrine of the Trinity and the affirmation that Jesus was the adopted Son of God, is easily demonstrated. Once this fact is realized, it could then be said that we would have better odds playing Russian roulette, than holding steadfast to modern day church doctrine. The doctrine developed gradually over several centuries and through many controversies. By the end of the 4th century.
How did the fourth century Church change the very Words spoken directly by God to all of mankind, and promote the doctrine of the Trinity? The heretics who the army of Constantine hunted down and murdered, were those faithful believers who refused to accept the religion of the emperor. Thus, the Christian world continues to embrace the doctrines and religion of the emperor, because they continue to reject the very Words of God, and have permitted themselves to become spiritually disenfranchised by the doctrines of men.

But it is precisely this formulation that has first claim to the title the Trinitarian dogma. Among the Apostolic Fathers, there had been nothing even remotely approaching such a mentality or perspective" , Vol. XIV, p. What it means in the words that " The road which led from Jerusalem to Nicea was scarcely a straight one. Fourth century Trinitarianism did not reflect accurately early Christian teaching regarding the nature of God; it was, on the contrary, a deviation from this teaching" , Vol. XXVII, p. According to the Nouveau Dictionnaire Universel, "The Platonic trinity, itself merely a rearrangement of older trinities dating back to earlier peoples, appears to be the rational philosophic trinity of attributes that gave birth to the three hypostases or divine persons taught by the Christian churches.
How To Share The Gospel In 10 Words
In his Dictionary of the Bible, John L. McKenzie, S. The answer is clearly written in the very beginning of the Revelation where it is stated: "The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him Most Christians who are unaware of the corruption of the New Testament by the fourth century Church of Constantine see Corruption , will immediately ask why these verses which represent the very Words of God to mankind were altered?
The truth and the facts to the matter is very clearly expressed in the words of Prof. Bart D. Ehrman in his book, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture , where he warns us that: " In the words of Prof. No wonder, then, that the viewpoint of the successful majority has dominated all traditional accounts of the origin of Christianity… It suggests that these religious debates - questions of the nature of God, or of Christ - simultaneously bear social and political implications that are crucial to the development of Christianity as an institutional religion.
In order to be acceptable to the secular authorities of 4th century Rome, the religion known today as Christianity had to be imbued with certain elements that made it compatible with both the government, as well as the thinking of the people. And if we pose the question as to who were the people? The only possible answer is that the great masses of converts to the Church of Rome were Pagan and idol worshiping heathens who prayed to statues, every sort of manmade and natural object, as well as the sun, moon and stars -- and they looked upon these things as their god!
But to their pagan mindset, the god of all gods, was in fact the sun -- and the sun which is reborn every December 25 th , periodically becomes manifest among men when the sun-god once again incarnates into the world in the form of man. Therefore, they reasoned that the Mithraic sun-god was born among the Jews in order to condemn them, and then be re-established among the Gentiles non-Jews as their Christ -- which they had always proclaimed. Christ Before Jesus : In the Gentile world prior to the time of Jesus, the word Christos or Christian was used in reference to an enlightened initiate in the Greek Mystery Religions -- which was basically Mithraic.
In many instances, those men who authored the Epistles that came to bear the name of Paul, were drawn from Mithraic Christian Initiates. And what does it mean? Because of the direct influence of the Mithraic initiates who called themselves Christian. But in the theological conflict between the Jews and Gentiles, the Mithrac clergy adopted the Gospels -- corrupted them to make them support the tenets of this Greek Mystery religious system -- and portrayed the original disciples of TheWay as heretics who were too Jewish to understand the teachings of Jesus.
Then they created what has been called Replacement Theology -- which parallels that of Islam in many ways -- which states that Jesus was born among the Jews to condemn them, and then took his rightful place as the leader of the Christians enlightened Mithrac initiates -- which, according to their dogmatic mindset, meant that the Gentile Church was always the true Church. What is now Christmas is the rebirth of the sun-god -- and what is now Easter was the worship of the moon goddess Ishtar and the resurrection of the sun-god see Easter vs Passover.
That the initiates of the ancient mystery religions were called Christians prior to the time of Jesus is demonstrated in a letter from the Emperor Adrian to Servianus, written in A. The worshipers of Serapis are called Christians, and those who are devoted to the god Serapis, call themselves Bishops of Christ". What is confirmed is that, with the advent of Jesus, the Christ or Christos was not a new term, and there were people throughout the empire who were called Christians prior to the time when the name came to be associated with the followers of Jesus.
More important, though, is the fact that they brought their ideas and beliefs pertaining to the Mithraic Christ into the religion of Jesus -- which teachings in their original form possessed an essence and spiritual reality that few of these Pagan Christians could perceive. Therefore, it wasn't that the original disciples were too Jewish to understand the teachings of Jesus and TheWay -- but rather, that a whole segment of the Gentile Church was too pagan and heathen to understand the teachings and objectives of the Gospels.
Archaeologists have demonstrated that the word Christos, which we render Christ, has been found not only on Pagan temples, and used in relation to those who were said to be the sons of the Pagan gods, but the term was also engraved on tombstones and other Pagan artifacts prior to the time of Jesus. In the Greek and Roman mystery religions of the time, the Christos was the Anointing of the Logos, and the Christian was the follower of the Anointed. In the writings of Clement of Alexandria we find it explained that: "Those who lived according to the Logos were really Christians, though they have been thought to be atheists; as Socrates and Heraclitus were among the Greeks, and such as resembled them" Strom.
Eusebius, the great historian of the early Church, admits that the religion that is called Christianity was known to the ancients Eccl. What then should prevent the confession that we who are of Christ practice one and the same mode of life and have one and the same religion as those divinely favored men of old? Whence it is evident that the perfect religion committed to us by the teaching of Christ is not new and strange, but, if the truth must be spoken, it is the first and the true religion".
Modern Christians who erroneously believe that what is today called Christianity started with Jesus, will be unable to relate to the words that "our doctrines of religion Augustine wrote: "That, in our times, is the Christian religion, which to know and follow is the most sure and certain health, called according to that name, but not according to the thing itself, of which it is the name; for the thing itself which is now called the Christian religion, really was known to the ancients, nor was wanting at any time from the beginning of the human race, until the time when Christ came in the flesh, from whence the true religion, which had previously existed, began to be called Christian; and this in our days is the Christian religion, not as having been wanting in former times, but as having in later times received this name" Opera Augustini, vol.
What this means is that the Jesus in the existing Gospels was converted by the Church to support the tenets of Mithraism, which was the universal religion of the empire. The problem is that the original teachings of TheWay had absolutely nothing in common with what came to be called Christianity under Pagan Rome. Resulting in the reality that the modern congregation of believers have been spiritually disenfranchised by the dogmatic dispensations that became ingrained in the doctrines of the Church -- which dogmatic dispensations was necessary in the creation of a secularized religion where the " That modern Christianity is faith-based, is the result of being deprived of the most important spiritual teachings and concepts which was removed from the tradition of scriptures which they received through the hands of the Church of Rome.
And that their doctrines of belief are openly condemned and rejected as spiritual apostasy by the original New Testament authors as demonstrated in the 10 Minute Test of The Lie , remains incomprehensible to the disenfranchised congregation of believers today. In the same way that educational dropouts can't perform and function at the level envisioned in the creation of our system of schools and universities, neither can the spiritual dropouts even begin to perform and function at the level envisioned in the Gospels.
For their own worldly desire for mammon and political power, the charlatan priests moved the goal-posts of the original Gospel objectives, and peddled spurious dispensations that seduced the congregation of believers to imagine that they could dropout of the process at an elementary school level, and achieve the degree that is equal to that of a university graduate. And in the same way that in Mao Tse-tung's Cultural Revolution he turned upon and executed the intellectual leaders who voiced opposition once he didn't need them anymore, so too did the Orthodox priests turn upon the spiritual core of the Church, once they achieved their desired positions of political power within the Church of Pagan Rome.
So in the conversion of Rome, everything that supported the Jewish roots and foundation of Jesus' teachings had to be suppressed and even condemned -- so much so, that Dead Sea Scroll expert A. What Davies was referring to was the fact that the Church of Constantine so altered the focus of the Gospel teachings of the New Covenant, that what we call Christianity today has its doctrinal legacy of birth in the fourth century, and has little in common with the religion that the Son of God revealed to man at the beginning of our Common Era.
In the words of Brian McLaren as quoted in an interview with Lisa Ann Cockrel which was published in Today's Christian Woman see Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right , Brian McLaren is quoted as stating: "One of the problems is that the average Christian in the average church who listens to the average Christian broadcasting has such an oversimplified understanding of both the Bible and of church history - it would be deeply disturbing for them to really learn about church history.
Thus, the Christian world has perpetually closed their eyes to their own biblical scholars such as Dr. Vincent Taylor who writes i n his book , The Text of the New Testament , that "The manuscripts of the New Testament preserve traces of two kinds of dogmatic alterations: those which involve the elimination or alteration of what was regarded as doctrinally unacceptable or inconvenient, and those which introduce into the Scriptures proof for a favorite theological tenet or practice".
Because one of the dogmatic alterations that was a long-standing theological tenet of the Pagan world was introduce into the Scriptures and remains to this very day as the foundation of modern Church doctrine. In his book, Introduction to the New Testament , B. Bacon wrote: "The Christian can only mitigate the disrespect he feels for plagiarists and impostors by the reflection that the conscience of the second century had practically no recognition for those literary crimes, rampant as they then were in the Church" p. Yet it is the product of these "literary crimes" that believers put their faith in when they read their Bibles today!
Scrivener, he writes that: "In the second century we have seen too many instances of attempts to tamper with the text of Scripture, some merely injudicious, others positively dishonest". Scrivener states that "it is no less true to fact than paradoxical in sound, that the worst corruptions to which the New Testament has ever been subjected, originated within years after it was composed: and that Irenaeus and the African Fathers, and the whole Western, with a portion of the Syrian Church" used inferior manuscripts.
The Gospel in Ten Words by Paul Ellis
The Great Lie. Modern Christians proclaim that Jesus was God -- but this was not what was believed by those who knew and learned from him. And while modern believers ignore this fact, the proof is overwhelming! In the words of Methodtus A. In the words of Lactantius A. Which voice is found to have been foretold by David. And the Spirit of God descended upon Him, formed after the appearance of a white dove.
From that time He began to perform the greatest miracles, not by magical tricks, which display nothing true and substantial, but by heavenly strength and power, which were foretold even long ago by the prophets who announced Him; which works are so many, that a single book is not sufficient to comprise them all". Moreover, these words which were spoken to Jesus are actually confirmed at two other places in the New Testament.
Contrary to the Apostle's conclusions upon which the Epistle to the Hebrews is founded, because this statement which was reportedly spoken from heaven was altered by the later church, nowhere in our present day translations are these words said to Jesus. In a writing by Justin died A. In the Hebrew Matthew, there are two variants to the baptismal account which are different from the Greek text tradition.
The first adds "today I have begotten thee. And as Jesus came up from the water, Heaven was opened, and He saw the Holy Spirit descend in the form of a dove and enter into Him. Nicholson, The Gospel according to the Hebrews at Also, in "Codex Bezae and most of the old Latin manuscripts This position of Faustus which was of course the same as the Ebionite Nazirenes and the Original Gospel accounts, was rejected by the dogma of the Emperor Constantine's Church that Jesus was the 'eternal' Son of God -- which doctrine was embraced at Nicea in AD.

See our "Council of Nicea". Augustine sets forth the Catholic view of the relation of the divine and the human in the person of Christ. It still remains true, that in this whole passage of the generation no mention is made of the Son of God till we come to the baptism; so that it is an injurious misrepresentation on your part to speak of this writer as making the Son of God the inmate of a womb.
The writer, indeed, seems to cry out against such an idea, and in the very title of his book to clear himself of such blasphemy, asserting that the person whose birth he describes is the son of David, not the Son of God. He [i. Augustine disputes only how Matthew read but not how Luke read. Based on Epiphanius and Jerome's account of the Hebrew Matthew, it must have been altered instead of Luke.
Only after Augustine did not want to cope with Faustus's argument any longer, Catholic authorities also erased the Luke version as well. While Augustine attempted to argue his point using the corrupted copies of Matthew, it is easily proven that the older Matthew manuscripts read exactly the same as Luke -- i. The Spiritual Consequences: Were these the actual words which were spoken to Jesus? If they were, what are the religious and spiritual implications for the modern Christian in search of a more intimate relationship with the Lord? This, however, is a forced way of interpreting the words, and not at all consistent with the context, which clearly connects the Sonship with the resurrection of Christ.
Does the apostle, then; mean to say that Christ became God's Son -- for the first time and in the only sense in which He was the Son of God -- by His resurrection from the dead? In fact, because they believed what Jesus himself taught them -- i. From a biblical perspective, there is nothing in the Old Testament that even remotely implies or predicts that the Eternal God will come in the form of man.
You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you Thus, Jesus told his disciples and followers that he was a prophet. If Jesus was God, and the Father and the Son were not separate and distinct individuals, such a prayer would have been meaningless. The problem is that we cannot even begin to understand the essence and meaning of this spiritual concept, until we are first able to comprehend our own divided nature -- the reality of our pre-existent soul -- and our vision has been opened to where we are able to see beyond the natural barriers of this world.
What Jesus is saying, though, is that in the same way that he and the Father are One, they too are One. If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of this world is coming. How could a coequal God say that God was greater than he was? It is a widely accepted doctrine among Christians today that the disciples and Messianic followers did not comprehend the true nature of Jesus, because they did not proclaim that he was God -- as did the later Gentile converts.
Where did Peter get the notion that Jesus was a man -- a man "accredited by God" -- a man that God performed miracles, wonders and signs through? I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. How could God give God works to finish? How could God know nothing except what God taught him? Sanctify them in the truth; thy word is truth. As thou didst send me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. Are these just words -- or did Jesus truly mean that his disciples were not of this world?
And when Jesus states that his disciples are at-one with both him and God, does that make them God? These are questions which the Apostle warns that the mind of man in his natural state is incapable of answering — incapable, until they have themselves attained this same level of oneness which is portrayed as the ultimate goal of the disciple who walks in TheWay.
We can only start to comprehend this belief that was held commonly by ALL the faithful believers who were taught directly by Jesus himself, as well as those who were closest to him in the first century, when we begin to apply what the Apostle Paul put forth in the first chapter of Romans, and explore the belief in relation to our own entrance into this world.
The path of TheWay could not be walked by many Jews because they were carnal in their perception of the Law Torah , and could not use the Key of Knowledge to open the inner door to the Kingdom. In like manner, the majority of the Roman and Greek followers who were too Pagan to embrace the teachings of Yeshua, were not interested in a life of genuine change and spiritual transformation, so they made Jesus their God so they didn't have to pick up their own cross and follow in TheWay.

The inner spiritual core of Judaism totally believes in Yeshua and his teachings -- and they see him as having ushered in a New Messianic Age of the Final Temple which is Spiritual and Living. The conflict between the three religions, as well as world peace, cannot be achieved because of The Three Lies.
That the spiritual core of Judaism believes that the historical Yeshua as a Messiah -- and ushered in the Final Temple -- cannot be acknowledged because of the paganism of Christianity and the idolatry of the Church in the worship of Jesus as God in accord with the doctrines of the Emperor Constantine. Moreover, this same idolatry not only was instrumental in the creation of Islam, but is the very reason why Muslims view Christians as worshiping a false god.
Yet, because Islam itself has become corrupted, the flaw that each sees in the other, is as the beam that is blinding the vision of each of the three. Click the above The Three Lies graphic to access the article and learn the Truth for yourself. Luke NAS. A Confrontation With A Long Ignored Reality - While scholars and believers alike hold almost countless opinions as to the meaning of the scriptures, to their own detriment they overlook the most important part of the equation -- i.
It is an ever-looming and grave fact that, because both believers and critic alike all fail to understand the nature of the scriptures from the vision of the original authors, the scriptures remain a perpetual enigma to nearly all who open them. The bottom line is this: That it makes little difference as to what YOU believe the nature of the scriptures are, if you fail to understand the sacred writings from the same perception and understanding as the original authors who composed them.
Thus, before you can even begin to understand the true meaning of the scriptures, you must first come to understand the original objectives of the authors. And in this respect, a few facts to consider is that the scriptures were written by Mystics who possessed a Knowledge that the biblical authors portrayed as incomprehensible to the congregation of believers -- whose higher vision of what they portrayed as Essential Truths, was outlawed as heresy -- which forced them to use a special CODE which they portrayed as the Key of Knowledge , which permitted them to both preserve and conceal their Spiritual Truths from the eyes and understanding of the ordinary reader and believer -- who would condemn and reject the Great Truths that were preserved beneath the cloak of the text of the written word which Paul portrayed as "the letter that killeth".
And in view of the fact that nearly everyone who opens the scriptures all equally throw away the Key of Knowledge, they all remain blind to the true meaning. Therefore, the primary objective of the scriptures is to conceal and preserve esoteric truths for fellow sincere seekers both in the present, and even more importantly in the future.
While it is true that we were all Created equal -- it is also an undeniable fact that in the case of man, equal is not the same -- and each of us is the product of our past experiences that have developed us since the very dawn of Creation itself. What this means is that the mystic authors write what man calls scriptures, so that when their souls return to this world, the sacred writings will be preserved for them to renew and restore their spirituality, so they can continue their soul-journey from where they left off in the previous cycle of physical life.
In the example of Paul who references himself as an ambassador in bonds who cannot speak about what he knows openly -- openly warning the congregation of believers that he had himself taught, that if he did in fact speak to them openly about the Spiritual Gospel, they would reject what he said as utter "foolishness" see Mystery Of The Gospel. Further, Paul explains that because it was declared from On High to be "unlawful" to reveal to the faith-based believers the Spiritual Gospel of Christ and the Mysteries of the Kingdom see Gnostic Spiritual Dilemma , there are two doctrines -- i.

Thus, each person reading this web site is confronted with the warning: "He who does not remember history is condemned to repeat it" Georges Santayana. This web site is for you, the common people who have been victimized, exploited and led in the wrong direction by both your religious and secular leaders and cultural icons. Our Heavenly Father has not in any measure abandoned his prodigal sons and daughters -- and quite the opposite, it is man who continues to cling to manmade doctrines, a cultural mindset, and the traditions of this world.
And if you begin to truly understand the timeless message of the Gospels, you will come to know that most religious leaders are merely Pharisees by another name, and most cultural and secular leaders are very much as the Romans.
Nothing has changed on the stage of life -- the players merely use different names in order to fool you. The purpose of this web site, then, is to free you who are the prodigal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, from the shackles of the counterfeit leaders who imprison you in this, the "far country As the prodigal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, TheCall has been made to each of you to return to the Kingdom which you once departed from, before venturing into this world which Yeshua portrayed as "the far country".
And TheCall is not to come to a Church, Synagogue, Mosque or Temple of this world -- but rather, to return to the Kingdom which you can enter by travailing in the "narrow way" that Yeshua taught see Gate Of Eden. Because if you don't hear TheCall, and come to the voice of the Shepherd of the flock while you are still alive in the physical body, you will not be able to enter the Kingdom when you pass from this life. And while you will not perish and cease to exist, you will not go to Glory as the some believe, or reincarnate as others believe -- but you will have squandered away an opportunity that may not so readily be available to you in the future.
He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever" Gen Thus, the objective of life is to become nourished by the fruit of the Tree of Life -- i. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God'" Rev And respecting the Tree of Life it is written: "Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" Rev With the final statement pertaining to the eating of the fruit of the Tree of Life in order to gain entrance to what is often portrayed as Spiritual Jerusalem in the words: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates" Rev The problem is seen in the fact that after suppressing the higher spiritual knowledge of Jesus and TheWay, modern seekers have no idea what the Tree of Life is, or how to be nourished by its fruit.
But few seekers have any understanding of how this nourishment must be brought about and accomplished. The Outer Darkness And Plato's Cave Of Illusions: Jesus taught that those who fail to put on the Wedding Garment and come to TheCall of the Wedding Feast, are thrown into what the Gospel portrays as the "outer darkness" -- which, when rightly understood, parallels that of the analogy of Plato's Cave of Illusions -- and because our modern culture possesses absolutely no understanding of the implications, it can be stated that modern man dwells in abject ignorance and intellectual poverty.
Because we fail to understand the great wisdom in the statement in the Gospel of Thomas : 5 Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you Because the important teachings on children were removed from the Gospels, it remains virtually impossible for the modern believer to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom. Jesus pays particular attention and importance to Children who are often referred to as the "little ones".
Unless Christians "turn about" , and become as a little child, they cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven Mt ; But this provokes the question: What does it mean to "turn about" , and become as a child? Virtually no modern Christian would be able to answer this question today.

Not only has the Gospels been corrupted, but the suppression of the teachings on the children can be proven by any Christian, using any version of the scriptures. If it is true that the teachings on the children were corrupted and suppressed, then how many other important teachings also suppressed? Will the modern Christian be held accountable for the teachings in the Gospels which were altered from their original context -- and even removed -- in order to make the scriptures support the man-made dogma of Pagan Rome? And if this is true -- that the Gospels were corrupted by the later Church in order to make them support the man-made dogma of the Church -- will the modern Christian be held accountable for the requirement set forth by Jesus in the original teachings?
Original Gospel Sacraments: The Sacraments that are practiced and observed in the Christian Churches today have very little in common with the Original Sacraments instituted by Jesus. The Gospel teachings of Jesus which were originally known as the teachings of TheWay The Way , have within itself all levels from entry-level to a high and mature expression of spirituality.
And while the entry-level is based upon faith and belief, the higher levels of spiritual maturity embody a Wholistic mindset and lifestyle necessary to transform the body-mind into a Living Temple that enables the Spiritual Christian to fully embrace the Pattern of the Christ, by symbolically picking up their own cross and travailing in TheWay in Imitation of the man Jesus.
