Re: Paul corrupted the teachings of Jesus


"As for all of us being Gods 'children', my only problem with using that terminology is that, as humans, we can only relate to the word 'children' according to our own experiences. In the context of man's relationship to God, the term that been translated as 'sons' or 'children' has, according to the 'real' scholars, many meanings. Indeed, according to Thayer's lexicon, among the many meanings attributed to the word, it is also a word used to describe one who depends on another or is his follower or pupil. It is also a term used to describe man and carries with it the connotation of weakness and mortality."

I have not read the Gospel of Barnabas.  I have read some of the Nag Hammadi books including the Gospel of Thomas.

Omar01, you and everyone else on the planet is an eternal spirit.  Everyone of us has that spark of the divine inside of us - if we would just look.  Spirit is not logic.  It is not "thinking."  It has nothing to do with that.  When you look within as Jesus taught, instead of looking outside of yourself for salvation, you will discover that spark, that spiritual light that Jesus talked about over and over again and which Paul and many others have tried to cover up.

You discover spirit through experiencing it, not by reading a book or through logic.  That is why Jesus said to look within, and to keep on searching until you find it.  Many of the sacred texts have good direction, but it is the individual who will make their own individual discovery.

John 4:24: "God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."

We are each a spirit residing in a fallible body.  We have each been created by the Creator.  We are each a child of God.
