YJesus Christ came to bring this Law of Love, but in reality became this sword, or instrument or destruction across the Earth.
In the Gospel of Thomas Jesus predicts his own co-option in a couple of places:
Jesus said, “Men think, perhaps, that it is peace which I have come to cast upon the world. They do not know that it is dissension which I have come to cast upon the earth: fire, sword, and war. For there will be five in a house: three will be against two, and two against three, the father against the son, and the son against the father. And they will stand solitary.”
Jesus said, “The pharisees and the scribes have taken the keys of knowledge (gnosis) and hidden them. They themselves have not entered, nor have they allowed to enter those who wish to. You, however, be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves.”
The scribes and pharisees of today are the Bishops, Cardinals, and their attorneys, the abusive priests they supported, all of those who would kill the one law Jesus delivered and smother their people in a whole collection of laws that are Roman, having nothing to do with the Christ.
Now we have a new law, the law of Love under Will. This modifies the previous law, which modifed the laws that came before. However this time its pared down into just one law, doing your true Will. The idea that the divine will and the truest personal will can be the same. This isn’t anything petty, this is Will, not want.
Black magick is the process of putting all of one’s energy into the fullfillment of petty wants. You think someone has slighted you, so you waste all your psychic energy cursing them. It works, they get sick, or get in an accident. But what is gained? Revenge? What is that, even if the slight were real, isn’t it far better to use one’s precious resources to fend off attack? It takes much less energy to banish inbalance than it does to attack someone with magick.
The kind of people that control the Roman Catholic Church are controlled at their base by a group of black magicians who use all their power to try to keep humanity in a servile, slave state.
This is why you have the attack on science education, to be effective they need to keep us in fear of their Angry God, and sacrificing ourselves, using a passive myth of self-sacrifice to convince their followers to give up their freedom and take up the “cross” of bondage.
In fact the cross represents the balance of elements. The christ at the center of the cross represents one who has conquered the elements and has united himself with the spirt. This is why the Rosicrucians subsituted the crucifed man with the rose, to turn the symbol from one of death to the real one of love and divine gnosis.
The real Jesus was not anything like the myth that is the basis of the Roman Catholic Church. However the Church could change, but change would undermine the very foundations of the dark tower of power that they’ve built up over the centuries.
Now I don’t see Jesus as God, except that we are all also God, he just was awakened to the fact while all the people around him were asleep in a miasma of rules and regulations for their own sake.
However instead of teaching how to find the divine inside the Church externalized Jesus himself into a God and forced their followers into a slave like worship. This is the Roman empire, which had to morph from a military empire into a religious empire. They had to come up with new forms of control and influence in the waning of the military might of Pagan Rome.
