My Truth

My truth will never by your truth because there is no way of transferring truth from one person to another.

If you think you already know, you will never know. If you think you already know, what is the point of searching.

The Book of Understanding by OSHO

Religion and it's teachers say they know. They say this is the way. This is the only way. When you hear that, you stop searching for the way. "Our way or the highway (to hell.)" These teachers don't want you exploring other possibilities.

What Do You Know?

A true religion will admit that only a few things are known, much more is unknown and something will always remain unknowable.

There is doubt and doubt is not destroyed by believing. Doubt is destroyed by experiencing. Doubt and go on inquiring until you find. Whosoever inquiries, finds. Nobody has come emptyhanded from an authentic inquiry.

A New View

The moment you believe in something, you have stopped inquiring. TRUE. Belief is one of the most poisonous things to destroy human intelligence.

Two thousand years of teaching...has it changed the nature of poverty? NO. It has done only one thing--it has killed the revolutionary spirit in the poor. Poverty goes on growing in leaps and bounds.

True religion can only be one, just like science. You don't have a Mohammedan physics, a Hindu physics, a Christian physics: that would be nonsense. But that's what the religions have done-they have made the whole earth a madhouse.

A science is one, then why should the science of the inner not be one?

Objective science deals with things, subjective science deals with being.

Without Spot or Blemish

Ephesians 5:27: That He (Christ) might present it (the Church) to Himself, a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish.

I was quoting it incorrectly. I would say, Christ is coming back for a church without spot or wrinkle and no one corrected me.

In Strong's Concordance, it says:  #4696-spot: a stain or blemish. ie. defect, disgrace.  #4512-wrinkle: a fold (as drawing together), ie. a wrinkle (esp on the face).

Though I was quoting the Scripture incorrectly, I took the it to mean Christ was coming back for a perfect church. Can the church become perfect BEFORE He returns (for those who believe He is not here yet)? Can the church be without blemish if we, the church, are fighting each other? Different denominations fighting each other, Jews fighting Muslims fighting Christians and anyone else who is not Christian? All in the name of God. How is that holy and without blemish?

Fear God

How many of you will admit to being scared of God? There are many Scriptures that begin "Fear Not." And many Scriptures that contain the words, "fear God, fear of God", etc.

I was taught that the word fear meant to reverence God. That's not how it's translated in my spirit. To me, it means to be afraid. Afraid that if I mess up, I will be cast into eternal damnation. After all, God Himself repented that He made man and destroyed everyone and everything except those in the ark (and I guess the creatures in the sea) and then said He would not destroy the earth/His creation by water again. Next time He will use fire. WHAT THE WHAT!!! That means He PLANS TO DESTROY US AGAIN!!!! He said so. Good reason to fear God, don't you think? Not reverence, but shaking in fear. .We've been taught to be afraid of God

Offend God

You cannot offend God any more than you can offend wind. He said He is no respecter of persons.

You Might Want to Question Your Beliefs

Dale Carnegie said, "any idea that is held in the mind, that is emphasized, that is either feared or revered will begin to clothe itself in the most convenient and appropriate form available."

Beliefs create facts whether true or false.

Bishop Carlto Pearson, "If you believe it, you become a victim of your belief."
