But, what do I mean by “Good People”? Why do I distinguish between people… Surely all people are good, right?
Well, the fact is, not all people are “good” people. Even the Bible speaks of the sons of Satan. That is, it is suggested in the Bible that there are people on Earth who are not good, but are given to the love of evil.
Hebrews 5:14 ESV
But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.
“Constant practice to distinguish..” In addition to instruction by ones family, does “constant practice to distinguish good from evil” not sound something like “education”?
1 Peter 5:8 ESV
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
2 Corinthians 4:4 ESV
In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
The phrase “god of this world” refers to Satan, but no doubt you knew this? Whether one believes in God or not, does it not make sense to “teach” right from wrong in school? Or, is there no point helping children learn right from wrong? I suggest only a fool would say that children cannot be taught right from wrong.
Revelation 12:9 ESV
And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
Although this event does not take place until just before Armageddon, the statement “deceiver of the whole world” applies to the earth as part of the “world,” does it not? Satan is evil, and those who practice evil are surely serving Satan, right?
James 1:13 ESV
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.
This just makes sense to me… that is, that God does not “tempt” people just makes sense to me. Especially since God designed the Law of Karma expressly to deal with good vs evil in the Creation. But then, I happen to be someone who believes that God is Love, and since God is an Absolute Energy, God can ONLY be Love. In saying this, I do seem to differ slightly with some scriptures in the Bible.
For example, take this scripture:
Hebrews 9:27 ESV
And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,
This scripture, in my opinion, misinterprets one half of a natural cycle of Life, and suggests that this part of a larger process represents the whole of the process. That is, when on dies, ones Soul with MIND attached, does go before a judge; but the judgement is more an evaluation by both ones Soul and a “judge,” and the purpose is to help ones Soul “see” how well it did in working through the Fate Karma it designed for its just concluded lifetime? And the result of this evaluation either sends the Soul [with MIND attached] to come Hell for re-education of its MIND, or to some Heaven for a bit of rest and relaxation [so to speak]. And after this, ones Soul reincarnates to continue its evolutionary process of growth and maturation.
And many Christians, having been taught a somewhat different story based on the prophecy of Revelation, will believe that “the Soul only has one life to live”. By combining both Christianity and Eastern mysticism, I have a somewhat different understanding of Revelation that answers many questions raised by Revelation.
Romans 12:9 ESV
Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.
If it were not possible to “hold fast to what is good,” would it be recommended for us to do so? And, as education strips these basic bits of truth from school curriculum [by removing Spirituality from the curriculum by demand of Atheists] what are these teachings replaced with? Far too often the truth is replaced with “Sara has a Mother and her Mother’s friend, a lady Sara is told to call Daddy. Nothing confusing about this, of course.
Romans 12:21 ESV
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
But… if we do not “educate” our children [and ourselves] in how we differentiate good from evil, how do children grow up to be good and loving adults? In other words, if we do not teach our children that there are Enlightened people and Intelack people, and most importantly how to recognize the Intelack person, how will they know whom to trust and whom not to trust…. especially if a child’s teacher is an Intelack class person? What will that child be taught?
Romans 12:2 ESV
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
It is the natural thing for the Intelack to encourage everyone to just “cool” it; just enjoy life, just let people do what they want to do, and let’s not “judge” others… Everything is “relative” is it not? Don’t be a homophobe for goodness sake. Don’t fear that your child will be taught by his or her Intelack teacher that being nice to a pedophile is a good thing to do. I mean… there are no sexual perverts on Earth, are there?
John 14:27 ESV
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
John 8:47 ESV
Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”
“Not of God”? This simply means operated by the MIND rather than ones Soul. Paying to much attention to the world, and too little attention to ones own Spirituality.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 ESV
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
And this means, of course, that Man can change. But to change, one must often rise above [at least Within oneself] ones environment, and eventually one may have to leave an environment which engages in such things.
Mark 7:20-23 ESV
And he said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”
These are the ways of the MIND, in other words. And they have their purpose, which is to provide every Soul negative desires which lead to actions, which will be dealt with by re-educational experience in the many different Hells that are provided we Souls on the Astral region of Creation. But if one doesn’t believe in Hell, well then…. of course one will UNIQUELY avoid Hell. The Law of Karma is like death. No one need believe in death for it to occur.
So, in essence, our “education” leaves a great deal untaught, does it not? We are in the ‘end times,’ and the Eastern mystics tell us this is the darkest, most evil Age of Man there is. This is the Age where evil has little resistance, and many Souls are incarnating expressly to explore the evil of this Age. No wonder this Age is so frustrating for the Enlightened people on Earth.
