I say unto you, honor traditions and those who created them not by rigid adherence to their earlier forms.
I propose that such rigorous compliance with the outward commandments of the Church leads precisely to an avoidance of that true inner spiritual work that we each need to do, individually, that leads us directly back into the Presence of God while we are still in this life.
From Elie Weisel- Christians (he said 'Thou') must not stand idly by
Christians need to have a true idea of the scriptures and abandon the thesis of sola this and that.
It is a mistake to think that Christians are against science. Atheists preach that nonsense.
1. Christians must abandon the notion of eternal punishment and the notion of a punitive element within Divinity. They must understand that all divine punishment, including any that may come after death, is just another expression of divine Love. As such, it is always restorative. It is intended for healing, and it will accomplish that which it intends. 2. Christians must abandon their "idolatry of the Book", ceasing from behaving as though their tradition's sacred canon of literature were somehow a very Person of the Trinity, or rather, Quadridity: Father, Son, Holy Spirit, and Bible. They must recognize that, although their sacred literature IS a treasured and holy expression of the divine Word, so are rocks, and trees, and humans, and sacred canons from other traditions etc. The sacred Word is the unthinkable Thought in which All Is. All Is coming into being in every infinite moment by and through and AS that sacred vibration. It is Life and Spirit and Being and Existence and Totality and Now and Here. To reduce It to nothing more than a collection of texts written by various humans is absurd. Christians must no longer think of these texts as "inerrant" or "infallible". There is no such text or collection of texts.
Christians must abandon misogyny, homophobia, racism, and other forms of prejudice, and embrace diversity, accepting all people as image-bearers.
Christian should understand that Jesus was a Buddah, an Orisha, a Netjer, a son of man, rabbi iman, an omnist animist, a political rebel, an hermetic philosopher, a mason, and much more as the master of masters unifier of every religion.
Christians need to read every verse of the scripture with what Jesus Himself said was THE single most important command. Love your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. And love your neighbor as yourself
Global economic enfranchisement, how the meek inherit the Earth
For the door to the church building: "Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here."
A spectre is haunting Europe – the spectre of communism. All the powers of old Europe have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Pope and Tsar, Metternich and Guizot, French Radicals and German police-spies. Where is the party in opposition that has not been decried as communistic by its opponents in power? Where is the opposition that has not hurled back the branding reproach of communism, against the more advanced opposition parties, as well as against its reactionary adversaries? Two things result from this fact: I. Communism is already acknowledged by all European powers to be itself a power. II. It is high time that Communists should openly, in the face of the whole world, publish their views, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this nursery tale of the Spectre of Communism with a manifesto of the party itself. To this end, Communists of various nationalities have assembled in London and sketched the following manifesto, to be published in the English, French, German, Italian, Flemish and Danish languages.
Embrace the Magisterium and Sacred Tradition, u schismatic heretics
Christianity can transcend culture and history... it’s a goddamn shame when we hold our religion to the standards of history, and not the other way around.
Christians should let go of control and judgement over others. When Jesus said "It is finished," he meant it.
American Christians must acknowledge that American Christianity has tried to make a culture a religion.
Asking "How does God want us to worship?" is like asking "How does God want us to pray?"Jesus will provide a guideline if you ask him, but really you can worship him in many, many ways. The way a church worships is largely based on culture, and to do away with some forms of worship (dancing, playing instruments) is to alienate entire races, entire cultures, and discard the individual gifts God has blessed us with.
Christians must accept Jesus is not the Messiah
Christians must unite for the expression of love to all that hurt- feed the hungry, clothe the poor- and transcend doctrinal disagreements.
Christians need to stop playing the victim - and instead embrace the true victims of poverty, discrimination and violence in Love.
Repent and Submit to the Pope
Christians must abandon the war against science and technology, and embrace them both as profound expressions of the image of God.
Christians must abandon escapist notions of the future, and embrace the biblical vision of God working to renew the cosmos.
Christians must abandon the ethics of blindly following rules, and embrace Christ’s ethic of sharing in the purposes of God.
Christians must abandon theologies which disempower humanity, and embrace the biblical vision of participation in Christ.
Christians must abandon the idols which hold us back, and embrace the God who calls us forward.
Christians must abandon concepts of identity rooted in our past, and embrace the New Testament’s vision of identity rooted in the ever-moving Spirit.
Christians must abandon religion that exists only for itself, and recover the call of Abraham to bless all people.

And he has appointed able ministers of the gospel to share this news with the world who teach that the exclusive virtue of reconciliation lies only in Jesus Christ, and not in themselves. The distinction is not a small one: Those who, according to the Scriptures, hypocritically purport to "teach repentance and forgiveness in Christ's name," and yet willfully teach penance and forgiveness in their own name, as priests or pastors, are false Christs, to whom Jesus referred, when he warned, "Don't Believe them," saying, "Many shall come in my name, saying I am Christ." Matthew 24 Jesus says, "All power is given to me in heaven and on earth, go therefore and preach the gospel to every creature." Matthew 28. Therefore, those priests and pastors who pretend and teach that their priesthood or pastorate exclusively conveys the salvation of Jesus Christ, are usurpers and impostor false Christs, starting with the most notorious imposter, the pope and all the other narcissistic self ambitious popes. To effectively teach repentance and forgiveness in the name of Christ, first requires that the ministers must be converted to Christ in order to know what repentance and forgiveness is. When repentance and forgiveness in Jesus Christ is understood, then the ministry will invite people to Jesus Christ and his salvation, without adding the presumptuous teaching that people must come through them, through their church, through their Mass, In order to obtain salvation. We read in the Letter to the Hebrews, and throughout the New Testament, that Jesus Christ "ever lives to make intercession for us," and the priests of Rome say that we must come to Christ through their intercession, their exclusive ministration, their interventions, we recognize that only one or the other can be true. And this means the other teaching must be the quintessential blasphemous heresy of heresies. The church exists entirely as the result of the salvation work of Jesus Christ. The people of God or called out from the world by the grace of Jesus Christ, by his merit, and exclusively by his merit; Consequently, Any church or pope or pastor who says that salvation of the members of Christ are dependent upon the priesthood or pastorate, or denominational membership, or baptism, or holy Communion, or Sunday or Sabbath attendance at church, is a liar and a thief against whom Jesus Christ warned they are time serving mercenaries, such as in John chapter 10. The Catholic priesthood under the authority of the pope as the presumed inheritor of the fictitious catholic dogma of the exclusive and superior power delegated to Peter the apostle, teaches the heresy that priests actually create Jesus every time they hold up the bread and the wine and "consecrate" them in the Mass. This is the basis of the monopoly and exclusive franchise of the Catholic Church, which is deceiving millions. Roman Catholic priests teach that if a person receives the bread and wine, they are forgiven even if they are actually in rebellion; consequently, those who have a desire for forgiveness, yet are condemned unless they partake of the catholic heresy of reconciliation, are condemned only by a human church and not by Jesus Christ, who has made provision for universal salvation apart from any church priesthood or pastorate. Likewise, those who credulously believe they are forgiven simply because they are told they are forgiven by receiving the "body of Christ" in the emblems of grape juice turned into wine, and the bread, weather Catholic or Episcopalian, liberalized Lutheran, or in any church, while remaining in rebellion against God, cannot be forgiven in such state. Ministers of the good news are to teach and preach "repentance and forgiveness in his name," that is, in the name of Jesus Christ. The invention that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be preached in the name of the priest and the pope, as ambassadors and representatives of Jesus Christ, is the blasphemy of the Roman Catholic Church. The perversion of the discipline of Christ which provides for the reconciliation of members and the excommunication of those who refuse after entreaty, the gospel of Jesus Christ, is the cardinal strategy of the Catholic Church to seduce souls into bondage under human traditions and rules, I'm not under the law and grace of Jesus Christ. The Roman Catholic Church claims that only it's a clergy, by virtue of seminary education and ordination, as approved by the pope, presumably vested with the authority of Jesus Christ, are qualified to teach and to provide the reconciliation of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ ordained 12 apostles who taught us not to look to a pope or a human priesthood, but to recognize that we all are invited to the priesthood of the ministry of reconciliation, by strict virtue and exclusive virtue of Jesus Christ as our great high priest, "who is passed into the heavens," and, "ever lives to make intercession for us." Hebrews The inter-position and meddling obstruction of an artificial caste of priests to mediate salvation in Christ, instead of teaching the all sufficiency of Christ for salvation, is the blasphemy of Catholicism. The church which teaches that Roman Catholic priests or protestant pastors are indispensably necessary for teaching and providing reconciliation in Christ, is a backsliding church, in denying the efficacy of Jesus Christ himself to provide universal salvation, utterly apart from any priestly or pastorly contrivance, ritual, or assistance. The intention of Christ for the leadership of the church, is that they properly superintend the reconciliation and excommunication principles of Christ. when the Catholic and protestant churches fail to understand this proper responsibility, they incur the wrath of God and bring the curse upon themselves, by denying the good news of Christ to those who desire it, and offering salvation in Christ to those who deny it. Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit awakens conviction of sin, And provides the gifts of repentance and forgiveness: conviction for sin, in order for sin "To be exceedingly sinful,"so that the gift of repentance may actually be received, and the forgiveness through awareness of Christ's sacrificial gift, in order truly to be forgiven; hence, the priest and the pastor can do no more than to teach and preach repentance and forgiveness in the name and through the power, through the exclusive power, of Jesus Christ. The purpose of retaining or remitting, that is, putting away, sin, As Christ appointed the apostles and leaders of the church as overseers, is not to bring people into captivity to church controls and laws, And exclude those who refuse to follow these arbitrary rules. It is the Holy Spirit granted impartation of Jesus Christ, which provides discernment to godly leadership, to determine who is reconciled in Jesus Christ, and who is operating in rebellion against this reconciliation. since the leadership role of the church is to determine reconciliation or rebellion, it is playing there any variation or straying from this rule, is apostasy and blast for me. The pastor or priest or pope who substitutes his own rules for reconciliation and excommunication, for those of Christ, is part of Babylon, and not the church of Jesus. excommunication can only properly occur if the entire church is briefed on the recalcitrance, after proper entreaty, of a former member who is graciously left to decide whether he wishes to remain willfully apart from Christ. excommunication can only properly occur, if the leadership of the church determines a violation of the 10 Commandments, and is meaningless and blasphemous, if employed to determine a violation of man-made rules. Excommunication is the reluctant decision of an informed church, not a committee, and not a pope, to separate a member, with the intention whenever possible, to graciously entreat him to return to Jesus Christ. gospel order requires that the leadership at the local level of every church, recognize those leaders who understand reconciliation and excommunication of members under the direction of the Spirit of God, which demonstrates that "God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance, to the dollars of truth."
