In my always constant search for truth in spirituality. mind you I was on a search for religion. Between something i read in the gospel of john and discussions with my good friend pastor paul. It occurred to me, Jesus is anti religion of an organized fashion.
I was studying more the gospel of John and spotted this wonder piece, that in one verse it dawned on me alot of my thoughts and beliefs up until now were on to something…
John 4 21-24 Woman, I tell you that neither is so. Believe this: a new day is coming—in fact, it’s already here—when the importance will not be placed on the time and place of worship but on the truthful hearts of worshipers. You worship what you don’t know while we worship what we do know, for God’s salvation is coming through the Jews. The Father is spirit, and He is seeking followers whose worship is sourced in truth and deeply spiritual as well. Regardless of whether you are in Jerusalem or on this mountain, if you do not seek the Father, then you do not worship.
And then a little after that he rebuked the jews for being followers of law ie dogma
I’ll leave you with that for now and this awesome video of the Gospel of John
This i find very interesting. Anonymous is doing good work and helping fight terrorism online blatantly and facebook shuts them down.
Could the government be pulling strings somewhere. Why else would people helping to fight terrorism be shut down?
My journey for learning in many different things religion science, knowledge, over time it has come to me they all tie together. I grew up in a very legalistic church, which left absence in my spirit especially when reading about jesus and how he hung with the outcasts and the people he accepted the outcasts the unpure. So many churches i have been around that is the last place i have seen the accepting of those who are “unclean” I’ve delved through many religions, creeds, theologies. Was a part of my great journey. It lead me to question things like how much has our organized church hidden from us, the catholic church hidden from us. In the 300’s the Nicean Council Decided the Nicene Creed and decided alot about christianity. Amazingly i read about it but it never occurred to me to matter. Until I heard it referenced in a song by a so i looked back into it and then it occurred to me The council sort of decided what would be taught and passed along. So i began to delve even deeper and still am. Gnostic gospels / considered evil by much of christiandom, How much of jesus TRUE teachings do we not know. I have discussed with quite a few pastors and the educated how much has been lost / edited / over the years. I will say so far i have come to believe from my learningo, I believe purely in a law of love at the minimum.
I liken it to the 10 Commandments and they all boil down to LOVE
I am the LORD thy God
Thou shalt have no other gods
(if you love god you won’t)
No graven images or likenesses
(this one is interesting because that includes saints & mary) Being i don’t know or nor have i seen God by any of his many names I keep no “Image”
Not take the LORD’s name in vain
Very true (but which name do they mean/ to call out to god ??)
Remember the sabbath day
Which day is it what does it mean by remember?
Honour thy father and thy mother
If you love you will honor them (Does that apply if they tried to kill you / molested you ?? In general if you love them you will honor them.
Thou shalt not kill
Sometimes man must kill for love, But in general you will not kill if you love unless forced.
I can say i fought with this one in my head when i joined the military and i was new and young to my spiritual jouney.
Thou shalt not commit adultery
Well you won’t do that if you love
Thou shalt not steal
You won’t steal if you love
Thou shalt not bear false witness
You shouldn’t lie if you love
Thou shalt not covet
Wanting or to covet but to covet what someone else has you shouldn’t do it you love.
From my reading over time i believe they are referencing part of the gospel of Thomas here. If you have not read it i have added a version of it below.
The idea is the most important.

One think i found in my search down the Rabbit hole a good friend told me to check out here is the first video.
Anonymous is shown by the media as being evil, the enemy, and alot of people think that anonymous is bad.
Anonymous is a collective but not a collective, no leaders, no structure, as they say you are anonymous.
Alot of people see alot of things they do that are the infantile, the trolling and being it is not organized group there are going to be people that are infantile.
Some of the good including:
What people don’t know or see usually is
Anonymous taking down Child Porn Sites on the Dark Web/Onion Network
Speaking out against censorship, government secrets,
Alot of Truth a Digital Freedom Army so to Speak
Example of good they do here.
Here’s a pretty good documentary showing alot of the info but even there theres alot they don’t share
I really didn’t question marriage licenses and marriage license law much until recently until the latest uproar with the constitution and gay marriage. The more i thought about it and looked into it, the more it seemed to me that there was no real need for Marriage licenses in this day and age.
The Things that made me think of this was,
- Interracial Marriage is not illegal
- People no longer take blood tests for the license anymore
- Now even homosexual is legal as it always should have been
For the most part you can walk in pay the fee and get a marriage license at least as far as I know. But then i stumbled upon this.
Many people would be shocked to learn some of my opinions on this.
I have confused many people when I tell them that i back a neonazi’s right to free speech.
The First Amendment does not say free speech unless we don’t like it.
It doesn’t mean there will not be reprocussions from other venues and groups.
But it does assert that the govt. can not act against you for merely speech.
Although there have been scenarios like direct threats ect that can become criminal even though theoretically they are also covered by freedom of speech if there is no action violence ect.
A prime example of this is War Veterans being classified because they speak out.
