It is just another
form of the 'salvation by works' perverse
by dark side beings known collectively as devils,
the opposers of truth and spiritual light.
Works are necessary, but
not for salvation. Works.(some
critically important for reward, not for righteousness
or state of being in a relationship with God, because none of us are saved
by our works, but by Christ's.
The thinking of dark side
beings has tenancy
in the mass mind, where also the combined thoughts of mankind, both good
and evil reside. From here the dark thoughts in the mass mind can be accepted
by a person, especially when one's confusion opens a door to them:.1Corinthians
14:33. Confusion is one of the tools of the side using deception.
Once this occurs, evil impulses

It's important if you are
learning from others to avoid getting confused. Some people teaching concepts
as truth are themselves mixed up
and this gets passed on for consideration in the play of religion.
By avoiding confusion one removes from the devil's 'game' of point and
shoot a victim. Confusion abounds in many established mental formations
regarding life's beginnings and includes the many living philosophies
we all encounter in life, speaking here of both creation
and man's religions.
As a result of confusion,
some persons think if they gain something from the religion they adopted,
that is so often based on the abolished ancient Mosaic
Law, that it will count with God in some way. They need to realize
the carefulness one must exercise in such important things:.1Timothy
The Mosaic Law was full
of physical rules and regulations. To even hint
at using any part of them in this age of Christ is ludicrous.
Doing so renders.unnecessary

themselves and others who may listen to them, from what Christ revealed.
Being so, such are they who lack sense of caution and adopt physical practices,

A relationship with the Father.initiated
by faith is always hindered
when physical practices replace spirituality of faith:.Galatians
3:3,26; 2Peter 2:22. The result
of such careless living is against Christ or is antiChrist:.1John
2:22 "...He is antichrist that denies the Father and the Son." Titus
1:16 "They profess that they know God, but in works they deny him,
being abominable and disobedient and unto every good work reprobate."
Many in various religions
have allowed themselve to be deluded.
These are the non thinkers who just aren't on the qui
vive. Delusion is a result of such ineptness:.2Corinthians
Righteousness is a gift.(Romans
you to have closeness with the Father in a solid permanent ongoing and
vibrant relationship. It is one's thinking in this regard
between him and God that is crucial.
The trouble with people is
that every time they think, it's about themselves! And, often the
reason they get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory!
How you think is crucial.
Some think more confidently than do others:.2Corinthians
in the Great Infinite One we call God, is the beginning of faith.
And this is where one has courage in life:.2Chronicles
Notice what stablishes you:.Romans
16:24-26 "The grace
of our Lord Emmanuel Christ be with you all. Amen. Now to him that is of
power to stablish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Emmanuel
Christ...and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment
of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of

good example of confidence; Paul

Turn off the TV.(Ephesians
the words of the Infinite because it is knowledge that renews you and
allows great spiritual character to form you into His image:.Colossians
3:10. It is knowledge, the right knowledge, that will increase your
confidence. Avoid that which could hinder your confidence in your Creator.
Learn to think in a
way which brings forth the confidence that the Infinite One has in
2:5,6. How? Decide to. Without decision, life just sits there waiting
3:3; Ephesians 3:12; Hebrews
The more you think about
sin, the further you are from Him.
5:14. You will have great confidence and enthusiasm
when you are sure about what the Creator really thinks of you and
sure that the powers we share with Him indeed work to
bring all we want into our lives:.1John
3:21 "Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence
friends, if our conscience is clear, we can be confident that we are of
the same spirit as the Infinite One."
Without confidence in another,
there lacks basis for building a relationship.
Thinking about Christ's

TV programs and/or
The more you think about
another, the more confidence you will have around them, but sadly, many
people are too selfish to consider others much:.Matthew
13:22 "He also that received seed among the thorns is he that hears
the word and the care of this world and the deceitfulness of riches, choke
the word and he becomes unfruitful."
When you kill time, it has
The way to have the necessary
to alter one's life, is not to concentrate on digging something evil out,
fighting sin as it were, but rather by putting something clean in. Christ
all sin for all time, so why fight that which is already defeated.
Have your attention
to have a
nature in you and you will become a
new person. This brings out from your
soul, the higher
qualities of the Spirit, the nature of what the Bible calls
6:4; 7:22-24; Colossians
6:11 "Likewise reckon.(consider).yourselves...alive
do you become alive to Creator-God if not through your mind).through
the Christ our Lord.(come
to a comprehension
Christ has to do with it)."
Imagine a tree, a dying old
tree. And you are a branch on this old tree with some
fruit because the tree is in declination.
And someone comes along, removes the twig that is you and grafts
it into another tree that is strong, vibrant and fruitful. You now have
a new vibrant life, fed from a new source, a
source that cannot die:.John
affects the heart...
To become this
new man created after God, requires one to think about why and how he/she
is new and Paul here explains this, again, Ephesians
4:24; 2Corinthians 5:17.
The Father doesn't see sin
in you! In fact He never did! How could this be? The Father sees you as
he sees Christ His son.
You have now a new identity,
the identity of a son of the Creator, the identity of the Father. Even
though your behavior is still what it is at this point in time, your regular
for the most part, wretched.you).is
'dead' as far as the Infinite One is concerned and your life now is hid
with Christ in.('with'
or 'by' as the original can also have it).the
Creator, the Father: Colossians 3:3,9;
6:6; Ephesians 4:22.
We are now his sons and daughters.
Learn to see yourself as the Creator now sees you:.Psalms
You are now
with the Creator because of His righteousness to you as
a gift and the Creator will now
ever leave you:.John
6:37 ".....him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out."
Accepted by the Creator from
all our sins are gone:.Isaiah
knew he was righteous even though he still was a sinner. Like us, David
too looked at his sins:.Psalms
David too, felt cut off from God, but that was only in his
What is sin? Sin is a act
of thought or a deed
that leaves a negative impression. Sin is of selfishness,
whereas love causes no negatives
in any way to anyone, therefor sin is caused by lacking love:.Romans
13:10 "Love works no ill to his neighbour...".Sin
is missing the mark and perfection
is hitting the mark. Sinning against oneself is
something a person does which is harmful to him or her.
When you are focused upon
love, which is Christ's nature in you, you have hit the mark right on.
to do this? Sin is a knowing that you are out of alignment with the nature
of the Creator, a missing the mark toward a higher consciousness:.John
9:41 "Emmanuel said unto
them, If you were blind, you should have no sin, but now you say, We see,
therefore your sin remains." James 4:17
"Therefore to him that knows to do good and does it not, to him it is sin."
12:37 "For by your words you'll be justified and by your words you'll
Where is it that this missing
the mark could take a person? Missing the mark of a future toward higher
an increasing habit of a soul persistent
in ways that compound.evil.
For example, one lie.(what
borrowing many more in order to maintain an appearance that was set with
the first lie. By refusing to change to a better consciousness, plunging
deeper into the gulf of depravity
is usually the result.
The high calling of Creator-God
involves not focusing upon sin.(Philippians
on Him and what He came to reveal and that was a
better way. That is, what He did in order to make possible what
He has for us from the Father of all.
Sin is always something you
have already done in thought and/or deed and therefore it is in
the past. Don't allow past thoughts to destroy your present by steeping
yourself in guilt. Sure, deal
with the thoughts and emotions that took you into the way of negativity
in the first place. How?
Those having the heart to
work on themselves once convinced of a higher consciousness way, sometimes
take the easy road away from their own
meditation time and go to church, so someone else can feed them apart
from being fed through their own
soul. Good to go and fellowship with others and hear spiritual things,
but if that negates your own spiritual responsibilities, you are spiritually
lazy and your spiritual growth will be ever so much slower and this
will affect one's reward.
Often then you have to become
subject to the religious do's and don'ts expected of you from the group.
You are not going to stay long in the realm of higher consciousness if
you focus on the
do's and don'ts of regulations. These are not required when in the
spiritual quality of love. Why?.Romans
You would not have focused
on this higher calling unless you believed
in it. Thus,
the importance of belief.
If Christ's nature
is in you, the Father regards this as acceptance of what He sent His
Son to Earth to accomplish and because of that, now only sees Christ and
His righteousness in you. God no longer sees any sin in you, nor will He
in the future if you still sin:.1John
1:8 tells us not to deceive ourselves by pretending that we have no
faults thus negating improvement. The point John is making that we need
to realize is that in spite of them, God loves us very much.
The depth of the Father's
love may be difficult to fathom
for some receiving little or no love in life:.Ephesians
11:33 "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of
God! How unsearchable are his judgments and his ways past finding out!".(*)
The main point is:.That
the Creator loves you very much, that he has decided that your faults no
longer provide a hindrance
to a relationship with Him and views us as holy,
and perfect. And if we're not?.1John
2:1; Hebrews 13:5. Remember,
never overrides our decision making. So, what
if I choose to leave God and maybe come back to God later? And if I
hang in and move from evil,
what's in it for me?
Without freedom of choice,
with its reap and sow
universal law equally affecting all mankind, there is no other known way

That is why there is no
for those in Christ.(what
does 'Christ' mean?):.Romans
8:1. That is why Christ came to save and not condemn the world:.John
3:16-18. That's why this thing called sin was imputed
to all mankind. That is why, because of the Creator's love, we are
in the heart of the Creator as holy, righteous and perfect.
1:9 shows us that in this life we still do miss the mark of His holiness,
because we have faults. We should recognize this and admit.(confess).them
ourselves. Do not 'brush them off. God knows you have them:.Hebrews
4:13 "Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight,
but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have
to do.".He wants
you to be open with yourself that you too, realize what you are like. This
is so you will see the contrast of your character as it now will move towards
the good and you will know why this was all possible.
All this takes guilt
away from us and places us in His peace:.Ephesians
One then arrives at the comprehension
that all His purity, perfection and holiness is now
chose you, awakened your mind to His love nature and gave you the gift
of His righteousness, that removes you from your faults the more that His
righteousness flourishes within you and this by attention of mind on the
things of love. Use
your mind to make it flourish.
