There is a new guest article at Henry Makow’s site:
“Christ’s Gospel: Unity With God”:http://www.henrymakow.com/the_original_gospel_of_christ.html
Here’s my take on it:
The guest author, Robert Cinque, wrote: “Only God exists. “You” and “me” are proof. No entity could possibly be separate from what originates it.”
That is in direct contradiction to what God says, ie, that mankind IS separated from Him due to SIN. If sin had no “separating effect” from a Holy God, He would never have ejected Adam & Eve from Eden & we all would still be living there, quite well off! Sin & its separating consequences is exactly why Jesus Christ came in the flesh, suffered & died, to pay for & “buy back” what His own creation forfeited, ie, eternal sinless life. If mankind was never separated from God due to sin, then Christ’s “earth mission” & death/burial/resurrection was completely in vain.
Robert says “Unity of all Life” twice. That is not a Biblical expression but sounds more like an advert from the UN & NWO media masters.
The word Unity is in the KJV only 3 times! (2 in Ephesians, 1 in Psalms). The word United is in the KJV only 1 time in Genesis.
Robert entitled his article, “Christ’s Gospel: Unity With God.” The word Gospel is in the KJV — NT only — 98 times & not once is it connected to the 3 verses where the word Unity is mentioned. In other words, there is no such thing as a “Unity Gospel” from the Biblical Jesus Christ.
Robert MAY possibly be thinking of John chapter 17, which records Jesus’ longest prayer to his heavenly Father where he prayed for his then disciples & those who would listen to them to be one with Christ & Father God. In that case you could say, “Christ’s Prayer at John 17: Unity With God.” However, even that longest prayer by Christ does NOT include “Unity of ALL Life” because Jesus specifically EXCLUDED “the world” in his prayer:
vs. 9: “I pray for THEM: I pray NOT for the world…” (John 17:6-26 in full context.)
Ken & Hans & Michael’s comments are exactly correct. Biblical Truth & Genuine Christianity are the complete opposite of this Theosophical (Blavatsky/Bessant), United Nations, New Age, “All in One, One in All,” “Universal Christ Consciousness,” “We are gods/I AM,” Esoteric, Emergent, Mystic, Contemplative, Pantheistic, Touchy-Feely, Labyrinth-Walking, “Feelings are More Important than Truth,” “Unity with One & All” false paradigm described by Mr. Cinque & some of the other commentors.
The reason people cannot & will not see the difference is because of rejecting Biblical Truth & seeking to establish their own Truth with false New Age teachings (who often admit their info was “channeled” to them by socalled “Ascended Masters” & “Guiding Spirits” aka demons) who “tickle their ears” with “flowery pleasantries” that appeal to their carnal minds & unrepentant hearts.
Henry wrote to Hans, “Possibly Christians don’t have a monopoly on Christ.”
Good try, H. :) Christians DO “have a monopoly” on the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ simply because we believe what HE says about HIMself… which is important when there are so many others to choose from, such as:
•the Gnostic Christ (who never came in the flesh),
•the Roman Catholic Christ (who was so inept in his assignment, the RCC decided Mary had to help him out as Co-Redemptrix!),
•the Watchtower Christ (who left his body behind when he rose from the dead),
•the Mormon Christ (who is the Devil’s brother),
•the Mother Gaia Christ (who lives in the trees, plants, & bushes, etc.),
•the Islamic Christ (who was just a nice guy prophet),
•the Jewish Christ (who was an imposter),
•the Beatnick Christ (who says, “Everything is Cool, Maaan”),
•the Bling Bling Christ (the rappers’ favorite),
•the Flower Child Hippie Christ (who says, “Fornicate all you want, no problemo, just bring me a flower & all is well”),
•the Masonic Christ (oh, that’s right, they don’t mention Jesus Christ lest some Mason be offended, so they espouse the GAOTU instead),
•the Bankster Christ (who gives money to the Name It & Claim It Prosperity crowd),
•the Culture Christ (who loves the world’s sin laden culture & wants Christians to be part of it instead of separate from it),
•the Judaizer Christ (who says Christians must celebrate Feast Days in Leviticus, a book written to National Israel, wear talits, keep the Saturday Sabbath, etc.),
•the Santa Christ (who claims Christ was born on the pagan Roman Saturnalia 12/25),
•the Easter Bunny Christ (who shares Fertility rites & pagan symbols with Spring Goddess worship),
•the Native Indian Christ (the great Unknown Earth Spirit, similar to Mother Gaia Christ),
•the Mystic Christ (who wants you to empty your mind, burn your Bible, & sit & say, Ommm),
•the Kundalini Christ (who will give you energy & open your chakras if you will just unwind & release that coiled serpent at the base of your spine),
•the Kaballah Christ (who says Adam never goofed or sinned but was always a god himself),
•the Self-Realization Christ (who says why waste time with the Biblical Christ, his messy spilled blood & cross, when you have Your Own Unique Self!),
•the New Age “Universal Christ Consciousness” (straight from the Blavatsky/Bessant House of Theosophy, & the mother of the modern New Age movement),
•& last but not least, the Oprah, Maryanne Williamson, Dr. Oz, Dr. Northrup, Eckhart Tolle, et al, Christ (who says “Any &/or all of the above is A-OK with me. Each to his own path!”).
Colossians 2:8: “Beware lest any man (or woman) spoil you through PHILOSOPHY and VAIN DECEIT, after the TRADITION of men, after the rudiments of the WORLD, and not after Christ.”
All of the above (false) “Christs” make up “the spirit of antichrist” which will embody the person of THE Antichrist when he arrives & “unifies” all (unbiblical, false) Christ-belief-systems into ONE. The REAL Biblical Jesus Christ aka “The Word of God” & the author of the entire Bible, calls that all-in-one, already-being-formed false-Christs’ “spiritual” entity “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (caps in original, Rev. 17 & 18) & tells all who will listen to “COME OUT OF HER” unless they want to share in her sins “which have reached clear up to heaven.”
The ONLY way ANY person will EVER have “Unity” & a right standing with God & Jesus is to “get on their knees” (humility & submission is the key, whether sitting, standing, kneeling, or lying in your bed or in a field of green grass makes no difference) & acknowledging to Father God, through Christ Jesus, that they are a sinner completely unable to establish their own righteousness before God; & that they fully recognize & have faith in the shed blood of Christ, his death, burial & resurrection as THE WAY God established for THEIR sins, past, present, future, to be wiped completely clean. From that SECOND forward they then have a righteous — never to be revoked — standing (& Unity) with the Holy God, are “sealed” by the Holy Spirit “unto the day of redemption” (of our flesh bodies) & “positionally placed” into the “Body of Christ” (fellow believers) & are “seated with Christ in the heavenlies.” THAT is The Gospel that saves. It takes a pure, humble heart, & only a few minutes. No amount of “New Age whitewashing” will get you the same result, but will end in disaster.
That is The Truth & It = LOVE to explain these things so people can wake up!
The Message of the Cross
18 “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” — 1st CORINTHIANS 1:18-25.
