What are we afraid of?

God is love, life, and wisdom.

Life is such a gift to be wasted on what.. Godly fears.. death.


Do you need a book to guide you...

which specify "father" repeatedly. the point being that creation, as
alluded to in religious text, requires more than a singular element...
there needs to be a 'pairing' it seems (at least in this quadrant of
this universe).
i see no need to argue with clergymen, but neither do i believe that
they hold exclusive rights to understanding the will and spirit of
divinity: all of humanity, all of creation, is intrinsically divine.
namaste

Then let the bible be his.

The earth hers.

Jesus was the son of God but left no trace.. other than the holy spirit, Pagans feel it.. that was my point in the sands of time, get it?

My point is God is transcended... gender neutral.

Is there a hierarchy?

There is a pairing... no doubt, and God-given.

Women, men.. embraced in the spirit of Godly light.

Could it be that men levered into the Godly role?

It's now womens day, thank God.

Do you see..

I am a pagan who is in love with the heart of Jesus.

Anyway, what is a pagan..

God is a divine holy spirit.
I think it's enough if we can recognise that spirit in other's paths as a point of contact. It's all we really have. Let each path be different
I'm sure my divine spirit is the same as yours, and we came to know it the same way, by love and seeking for it as Jesus wished his followers would do

I think the main difference is actually in dualism related to dark spiritual forces. Jesus believed these existed. Looking at the world around me, I do as well. We don't live in the world we make up for our children to protect them from the real one. It's wise to be really cautious about when to see dark forces and when not, yet not wise not to see them.

Do you need a book to guide you...

The "Book", is a collected historical document... of the Jewish nation. Of His covenant with Abraham, and Israel. And a record, of how the good news of His love and salvation, through His appointed Son and Messiah, spread throughout the entire world.

The testimonial and declaration of God Almighty to the Elect of God. That is, to those who believe on His Name, concerning the inheritance which He has laid up for them in heaven, at the end of time.
1 Peter 1:3 - 7.
Which has nothing to do with paganism.

God thought we did. All that know him, know is correct always.

I have nothing against the bible but it contradicts itself all the time.

I have nothing against Jesus but have huge problems with the church, Roman Catholic, I was that, and Orthodox, I was that too.

Which church knows his ways best.. corrected.. LOl.

Maybe I need to look at the Agnostics more?

Perhaps the early Christians, before Emperor Constantine made Christianity the state religion was purer, the way it was meant to be?

I read a book by Mathew Fox " The Coming Of The Cosmic Christ" a few years ago, he was a Roman Catholic priest but was excommunicated for his views, rather up my tree the way I read him.

More in touch with the natural world, and the spirit of the Cosmic Christ.

Just my 2 cents, we all have our own place in creation after all..

I'm not even a pagan per-say, but I love nature and find God there. It was always my main go-to place God willing.

i figure that the time for battling is done.
we don't need to fight; not over anything.
all of everything is available for everyone.
impositions of order don't provide peace.
unity consciousness. catch the fever.

if i caught it properly, it goes like this:
"remember that we all are brothers, all people, and beasts, and trees,
and stone, and wind, we all descend from the one great being, that
was always there, before people lived and named it, before the first
seed sprouted.
"
i doubt that jesus would take offense to such a blessing.

do you believe that jesus would disapprove of this video?

I caught you
In the core of my eye
Jesus smiled
A fisherman knows
The nets
The sea...
