[dropcap]In[/dropcap] Luke: chapter 14: verse 33: “So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple”.
We are all familiar with well known story of the birth of Jesus who was born in a lowly stable. In Matthew chapter one verse one it says: “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King, behold there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem”.
In Matthew verse 2 it says: “Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him”.
Verse 7: Then Herod, when he had called the wise men, inquired of them diligently what time the star approached? LOOKING FOR FULL PUBLICATION OF MY MANUSCRIPT Verse 8: And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said: “Go and search diligently for the young child; and when you have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also”.
Verse 9: When they had heard the King, they departed; and, lo, the star which they saw in the east went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
10: When they saw the star they rejoiced with exceeding great joy
11: And when they were come into the stable, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshiped him, and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold frankincense, and myrrh.
At this point we must examine the account of the star that led the wise men to Jesus. Scientists along with others know that it would have been impossible for any star to move from one point of the sky to another then to stop and hover over one particular area, it is impossible. The laws of the universe are perfect and it would be unnatural for a star to guide the wise men to Jesus.
In an earlier article we learned of what were called the God men, not angels or spirits but good wise extraterrestrials like the Serpent people that Jesus spoke of. It was in fact three extra terrestrials, three wise men of the Serpent race who were guided to where Jesus was born by one of their spacecraft. Regarding the gifts of gold frankincense, and myrrh, these were not the gifts that were given to Jesus for they would have no value to him; this inaccurate happening was written mistakenly by the writers of the bible. Jesus was born into poverty he had to set an example to the people who in his later life he would teach. If he didn’t he would only be paying lip service to those teachings if he was burdened with status or earthly possessions.
After the birth of Jesus we do not know anything of his life when growing up it wasn’t until later on in his life when we read of him selecting his disciples. So what of his younger days? Although Mary and Joseph the earthly parents of Jesus were very spiritually aware and knowledgeable in spiritual matters, it was the extra terrestrial Serpent people who guided and brought out of Jesus his high spiritual abilities. After the three wise men of the serpent race had visited Jesus in the stable he along with Mary and Joseph were taken by a spacecraft to one of the serpent people’s encampment situated in Peru in a very remote place so they would be safe from Herod and others that would slay Jesus.
Christianity has never got to grips of who Jesus really was or the truth within his teaching. In 1938 there was great concern within the Church of England when they began to lose many of its followers, and there was even doubt as to their own teachings which caused disputes and unrest within the church. In January of that year the Church of England set up an inquiry with a panel of just twenty five clergymen to look at the doctrine of the church and to try to find a united front in their beliefs. But they did not hurry to come to any conclusions for it took them fifteen years before the final report was finished.
To begin with the Church Commission came up with the conclusion, what is written in the New Testament about the virgin birth was ‘inconclusive’. Christianity has never accepted that the life of Jesus was of an ordinary man with highly exceptional spiritual qualities, and was not the only begotten Son of God, but our elder brother. He had no privileges, came with no special material status and lived a humble life. Jesus had to go through the birth procedure the same as everyone else dose, there was no virgin birth. If there had of been then you could say that technically God committed adultery with Mary. Jesus himself recognised the fact Mary and Joseph were his earthly parents. Mary can be loved and respected as a good mother to Jesus she had the spiritual qualities to teach and to guide him in his spiritual destiny in his younger days. Mary was the noblest kind of woman and was specially privileged and selected by God for the undertaking of being the mother of Jesus. Mary was the kindest simple pure lowly mother of the greatest man that trod the earth plane and was an admirable person upon which to give our admiration and respect.
The Catholic Church however plays more importance on Mary than Jesus; they have elevated her to a position beyond that which it should be, an ordinary woman. This situation though is contradictory because ever since the Catholic Church and the Church of England became established they never had a role for women in their religion, not allowing them to become female priests. It is only in recent times that women have been allowed to have lower positions of authority at least within the Church of England. There is one pacific reason for the Catholic Church to hold Mary in such high esteem and to worship her. Before the time of Christianity there were no established religions as such, but there were people who not so much worshiped the environment, but were very appreciative of its creation and its benefits. These groups of people were called Pagans. They had an understanding that there was energy an inspiring force within nature which was an expression of the Great Creator and they called the environment Mother Earth. This love of the earth was popular with a lot of people in society, and this the Catholic Church noticed and came up with the idea that they should put Mary the Mother of Jesus in a similar position as Mother Earth and to worship her in a similar manner. The Pagan Mother Earth practice was then denounced as evil by the church, for they wanted total control over people, and so they intimidated them to suppress the practice of paganism saying it was witchcraft. With this being achieved it raised the status of Mary and without this the church could not have been a success. The worship of Mary spread throughout the Catholic world, the church even claiming that God wanted Catholics to be worshiped through Mary and they made her something that she wasn’t.
