Before today, I did not know the Gospel of Thomas existed. I did not know what it was about. Yet weeks ago, I wrote a phrase that is nearly identical to the text. I am not up there, I am in you, I am in all things, I am everything.
What if the traditional church is founded on the grounds of control? The catholic church says only through Christ are you going to heaven, but all leaders must be ordained by a “holy MAN”.
Why did Jesus teach in parables? Was it because the majority learn and understand more fully through this medium or was it that he knew this was the best way to get his work published beyond the church and state of the current times he lived?
We know that works were destroyed by ancient governments and churches. We know that Jesus had 12 disciples. Yet we see the records of only the ones that saw things similarly and did not upset the narrative, of unity. Our church history is based on the observation of others. I believe God held the pen, but I also believe God held the pen of the others.
Why do we not question how much information was purged during the time of Constantine? 12 different perspectives paint a more accurate picture than 6. We know the truth. Jesus said I am the truth the life and the way. He also said we too can do these works if we only believe.
The words believed to be of Thomas and other disciples indicate that there is a language that speaks directly to God. This has been INTERPRETED to mean many different things. But Jesus says plainly, believe and act if it is done and it is. Believe is to feel and act is to see or visualize. Could this be the language of God? Has the development of language united or divided us? Therefore, does our spoken language actually help or hurt us? We know the answer.
The greatest danger is truth 1% out of phase. Challenge your beliefs inwardly. Ask the Lord through thought and feeling if you should serve as your ancestors served. Answer is no by the way. How many emotions and feelings do you have that there are no words for. Language is limiting do not be held back by it. Feel and believe your destiny and it is so.
