I Thirst For GOD
(http://www.experienceproject.com/stories/Used-To-Be-A-Christian/459985 )I posted this story a year ago. And since then I have realized a lot more than I did from that time.
For One, I realized that Yes, I REALLY AM a "CHRISTIAN" =)
- I realized that one can find God wherever there is spiritual truth... a lot of spiritual truth can be found in the Christian/Catholic Bible, it can also be found in the Jewish Torah, the Buddhist Darma, the Muslim Quran, heck even in Socrates and Confucius teaching!
But of course there are those who will say, "In no way you could possibly be a "Christian" for what you just described is complete heresy!!!!
The majority of Christians want to believe that spiritual truth can only be found in the bible and no other sources... for the bible is the ONLY SOURCE? The bible does have spiritual teaching, but it's teaching is there so that it may help us become spiritually matured. Once a person becomes spiritually matured they will have a thirst that will direct them towards spiritual truth, from within their heart thirsting for GOD...
When You have learned the spiritual teaching that allows you to become spiritually matured... directing you so that Your Heart Thirst for GOD, for spiritual Truth. You allow CHRIST/BUDDHA/KRISHNA/ALLAH/ETC... to be in you as you are in GOD.
"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon"
The Majority of the people living in this world Obviously do not serve the One TRUE MASTER "GOD/SPIRIT"; for whom they serve is the FALSE MASTER the "EGO".
The "Ego" is the Father of Lies the destroyer of truth, for it is he that draws us away from the TRUE MASTER, the Indwelling CHRIST.
Look at the world we live in, the separation of people, nation, governments, etc... The master in whom they serve is the "Ego"... so what is the answer that their master tells them whenever they have a problem? WAR!!!!
As Jesus Said "Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."
As Jesus Said “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."
- A child is without "Ego" therefore a child TRULY IS with GOD until it grows up and decides to live in SIN/EGO which denies the SPIRIT/GOD.
"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus"
As Jesus Said "Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me" that he and I are one.
Allow Christ inside your heart just as you are in Christ. You and CHRIST must Become ONE.
When you do this, your heart and mind will be Completely transformed!!!!... YOU WILL BE "RESURRECTED" like unto a Child... without "Ego".
God Bless you all.
