The Contradictive Christ of the American Bible

Hell and all of its humanistic -ologies.

When we look at the “Biblical English’s” face value, such as the KJV/ NIV/ ASB/ ESV, etc.., we are guaranteed to ‘see’ contradictions. The reason for these contradictions is this: the English and American languages carry a 2+ thousand year gap from the original Biblical speakers. That is, intended social transmissions for communication were participated in the day that they were spoken.

Any culture’s language fits their own social construct. Therefore, we are not a Greek speaking society in America or England and do not think like an Alexandrian or Ist century Greek speaking citizen. Nowhere today, including modern Israel, is there a remnant Ancient Middle Eastern Hebrew speaking society referencing an interfering God who comes out of pillars of fire or through His prophets 2,900 years ago–though. I’m sure some cults might attempt to argue that failingly.

Suffice to say, we have pockets of Greek and Hebrew culture in America and England, but the modern Koine Greek and modern Koine Hebrew is molded to modern times and is thus far removed from the ancient cultures from which the Bible was born.

On the adversus of ancient semiotics, that is, *agreement with linguistic expressions in their social confines of ancient times* These seemingly contradictory verses are rooted in actualities or instantiations that make sense within, by, from, to, for us concerning our particular Semiotic references. This might be why it is so hard to *participate* in an ancient and foreign sentence that denotes that we are dead nouns activated by the Verb of intensity that rushes upon us—-another way to say it: *God*– in HIS motion upon us. This ancient Near East way of thinking COUNTERS THE “US causing to BE”.

If brought to a modern Christian, these ancient antinomies -or seemingly irreconcilable contradictions- are sadly and abhorrently thrown out as dismissed representations of a bygone era no longer needed to convey God to a modern church. Modern ministers who do such injustice to the original Scripture are devoid and devoid others of the Ancient Hebrew and Greek which held their ancient social configurations into a fixed semiotic gridlock. Most importantly, this Western action uproots the very core of God as the VERBS OF CAUSATION, A.K.A. – “YHVH”, “EYEH”, “EL”, or “YA”.

Sadly, the depth of western presbyters seems to lack more than triumph in efforts to convey these FOUNDATIONAL foreign Theological syntagma and the paradigms for which they are beset. We are left to our western CONNOTATIONS which participate as a grammatically, Theologically and socially “idolatrous” Occidental culture. God is no longer the Verb and we are no longer the Noun of His Glory, rather, WE have become the VERB that Rushes upon our IDEA of the Paper Christs we make. That is, we have made

ourselves the “verbs of action” that can “move upon God” and change His Eternal Will. We, in perverting the Scripture to the Western or Occidentally mode of social and linguistic grammar, are now – in our imaginations – the written characters in the Book which can jump off the page and ask vehemently, “What are YOU DOING!?!”.

Everyone has a ‘worldview’ but that doesn’t mean that they are scientifically or Theologically more advanced. It only means that they ‘participate’ within their means to a delegated social environment . Everyone has a language by which they respond or react to. Our participations within the configurations given to us carry over built in reactions. Words are the agents for all of this social transmission.

If the English/ American ‘grammatical numbers’ are skewed then how can you trust that a culture of social and semiotic relativism can add its seeming 2 plus 2 to equal 4? That is, how about if there is something else behind the “2s”? How about if each “2” was a REPRESENTATION of “two sets of 9”? And, the “9s” were representing the 9 efforts for counting the stars of differing constellations?

We cheaply “represent” a semiotically multi-layered text for its face value alone – leaving the Western *CONNOTATIONS* to ensue. We have now “accepted” into our Western societies a “Normalcy” to these perversions. Giving ‘credence’ to the Appellate of Christ, we dismantle the Verb, the Authority, aka, the NAME of Christ. Moreover, many Western ministers are proud of their so called “”Orthodoxies”” and condemn *any foreign thought* to their Numinous or Spiritual *configurations*. I dare not say, “Theologies”, lest I conform somehow to giving credit to sinful chaos that could never obtain an -ology or ‘reasonable categorical assemblage’. I just can’t.

So, where am I headed with this? Well, I’ve already made a point good enough for a morning devotional (the kind that gouges error out of us). But, I’m headed somewhere. I’m leading up to a world of “English and American contradictions” that we cannot help but face in the various English and American Bibles. I’m leading us to wonder, “How is it possible to continue with a corrupt text, ancient – incomplete thought patterns that follow all the way to a posible *contradictory god figure*. Here, if this were true, we SHOULD lose faith in this all too humanistic god written by many people over a millenia.

IF the Occidental Scripture’s representations of God and His people lead us from and to something less that full coherency, inerrancy, testation for life’s trials with a perfect world view of WHY all of these trials are happening, marital calibrated terms for endearment of the God who took us and married us with a true Husband’s language, etc. then we have no reason to hang on to fallible antiquity. We should be “face value” with life. Have enough “guts” to “FACE” life and death without resurrection because, isn’t that what we’re doing with the Scripture?!—going ‘head on, FACE on’…like a Bull in a China Shop!

In this piece, I’m bringing up Scriptural passages that do not weigh up when
*face value western connotations* -aka, “western orthodoxies” are applied.
I present to you two terms that will be used selectively throughout this piece: “Aporias”, “Paradox”, “Aleatory Contracts or Clauses”.

  1. a)  Aporia: *an irresolvable internal contradiction or logical disjunction in a text, argument, or theory*

  2. b)  Paradox:*astatementthisisseeminglycontradictoryoropposedtocommon sense and yet is perhaps true.

  3. c)  Aleatory Contract: “a mutual agreement between two parties in which the performance of the contractual obligations of one or both parties upon *AN ACT OF GOD* —-(a.k.a. –a tornado or hurricane destroys your house causing the insurance company *TO ACT* upon something not foreseen by human perception).

  4. d) antinomy:*referringtoaREALorAPPARENTmutualincompatibilityoftwolaws —such as, “There is no absolute Truth”. In order to make this an ‘absolute’ truthful statement, one would have to contradict the concept of *absolutism*, hence, nullifying one’s own statement. Or, the Kantian ‘antinomy’: “Free will can’t exist if there is *UNIVERSAL CAUSALITY*” (((–here is a point that we can ONLY answer via a Biblical Hebrew and Greek *combined* mind. For the Hebrew mind looked at Time as shapes or forms. Time was an event that already, is, will happen as a solid form. “IT IS DONE”. “IT IS GOOD”. Like a Buffalo in the water with his hind legs and on the ground with his front legs. He’s ***BOTH*** in the WATER and ON GROUND!!! For, Kant used classical knowledge from Thales forward. Deductive Syllogisms were both a salvation to the world of science and a complete devolved sense to our relationship with God when it was the ONLY approach to “MEANING”…for deductive analysis’ power lie in the ‘classifying’ of objectivity, not the heart’s reason, faith, love, or passion to act prior to complete though or reason. Such is “faith” in science out the window, huh? —better not act on practicing science lest you don’t have reason to know what you’re doing… (a paradox) ))).

Revelation 21:8

“But {di} as for the cowardly {tois deilois} and {kai} the faithless {apistois} and the detestable {ebdelugme’nois}….and…as for murderers {phoneusin} and the sexually immoral {pornois} and sorcerers {pharmakois} and idolaters {eidololatrais} and all {kai pasin} the liars {tois pseudesin}

THEIR PORTION {to’ meros} in the lake {limnos} that burns {kaiomene’} with fire {puri} and sulfur {theio}, which is the second {deuteros} death {thanatos}”.

Who’s not bore any of these traits, even to the present time? I’m referring to Christians for the moment. You’d be a liar if you denied that you didn’t have at least one of these traits. And, being a liar defaults you back to this category of ‘those whose *portion* will burn with fire and sulfur’. I won’t argue the agents of chastisement ( I.e., “fire and sulphur”) in the lake but I will approach the “portion” ( the ‘offending eye or hand’ that is attached to the saved person) that WILL be cast out later.

  1. a)  Coward (cowardice/fearfulness) = Greek: “deilia”. In 2 Timothy 1:7 it says, “God has not given us the spirit of *deilia. Yet, in John 14:27, there is instruction given to us to “not let your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”. Well, if there’s instruction given then there is a directive path to come *from* some state of being *to* another. The early church was being addressed concerning their *Deilia*..in that they should NOT be *deilia*. Does this damn them to hell due to their prior status if they are ‘coming to be’ or ‘coming out of’ *deilia*? No. How are they ‘coming to be’ Christians…”in the Likeness thereof” —by their power? No….., by God’s Predeterminate AND Prognosis (foreknowledge) council before the world began, YES. Romans 8:29 “For those whom He Foreknew He ALSO PREDESTINED (pro’/horisen = ‘set before the light came upon it’) to be conformed (sunmorphous – summed, tied together, joined and shaped into the same) to the image (icon) of HIS Son, IN ORDER THAT HE MIGHT BE THE FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BROTHERS” ….that is, HE, JESUS, will be our Bigger Brother. How SWEET is THAT!!???!!! Let’s continue this passage. :30, “And THOSE WHOM he PREDESTINED HE also called (ekelasen —accou —’sounded out’), and those whom HE called HE also justified (edikaiosen), and those whom HE justified (e’dikaiosen – dike’ = ‘make right/ make straight {versus “sine”/ “curved”) and those whom HE justified HE also glorified (‘edoxsasen’ = “the Shooter/ the bowman/ the Archer who ‘participates in the shot that is already done; in the boule or ballistics co-rightly to make the shot to the bullseye”). The Scripture continues: “What shall we say to these things then?! If God is for us who can be against us? HE WHO did not spare HIS own SON but gave HIM up for US ALL (‘emon panton) how will HE not also with HIM graciously give us all things?! Who shall bring any charge against God’s Elect? IT IS GOD WHO JUSTIFIES. WHO IS TO CONDEMN!?!!?!?!? CHRIST JESUS IS THE ONE WHO DIED (WAS CONDEMNED) —MORE THAN THAT, WHO WAS RAISED – WHO IS AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, WHO IS INDEED INTERCEDING FOR US” …. Sigh… please continue on your own to read the rest of Romans!!!

  2. b)  Faithless = Greek: “apistos”. John 20:27 – Jesus says, “Be not faithless, but believing..”…. Why would Jesus *instruct* this, command this IF there was not a deficiency of faith? The *apistia* spouse will be INDEED saved by the believing Spouse (1 Corinthians 6: 13, 14). Are there ‘levels’ of being ‘cut off and sent into fiery-sulfuric hell forever? – Well, if there are, then the ‘cut off’ is worse for the man in 1 Timothy 5:8–”for if anyone does not provide for his relatives (idion/ {Genitive; plural; masculine}), and especially for members of his household (oikeion), he has denied the *Pistis* or *Faith*

and IS WORSE THAN AN UNBELIEVER (**APISTOU**). Just to play with this, ‘my relatives’ would ONLY MEAN in the literal Greek: “of my genes, plural, only the males”—just saying! Now, up til their deaths, I took care of my Mom and Dad at our own home, cleaning them, bathing them, wiping them, administering their medications, feeding, clothing, putting them to bed…day after day until there’s nothing left of me. I thought I would die before them. I didn’t. Presently, I’m in the same situation with my mother in law who weighs around 275 lbs, has borderline personality disorder, and is bi-polar. My wife and her brother have been tortured by her since their youth. They still can’t be around her for too long from such trauma that she imposed on them. Her in-laws and friends (minus one) never come over. No one will have her in their home or can. She is vicious and cruel to me. I am the one who takes care of her from 6:30 am until ca 5 pm when my wife gets back. I’m still sharing the load in helping. I have an eighty hour week’s worth of work from home as an online teacher, recording artist, book writer, graphic artist, podcast and website minister, …I have so little time to breathe. I have 3 children under one roof, the aforementioned mother in law and Wife. Am I an infidel (apistia) at 54 if I have done all of these things and something happened to me? Let’s say, God forbid, I was rendered physically incapable of not ‘providing’ this kind of care for my ‘ideon’ = ‘relatives’,PLUS my ‘oikeion’= my own home/ house. Would I be an infidel?!?—-There’s a ***gist*** in this scripture not tackled by the literal fascia in Greek nor English. What is it?…. I’ll tell you what it is: It’s not what the literal says it is. So, where do we go from here then? The ANSWER begs for a different path than ‘looking to condemn’.

c) Detestable Greek: ebdelugmenois. Strongs #948 Titus 1:16 “They profess to know God, but they deny (arnountai) HIM by their works. They are *detestable (bdeluktoi) and disobedient (apeitheis) and unfit (adokimoi) for any good (agathon – beneficial/ productive/ constructive/ wholesome/ whole) work (ergon). How many of you have gone to a Christian Bible school? How many of you have gone to a Christian University? How many of you, if you are in one of these camps, has professed Jesus as Lord but was disobedient in youth, at that time, before life’s lessons, reality, heaviness of loss, destruction beset you?—that is, ALL OF THE THINGS OF “RA’AH” OR *DESTRUCTION* THAT GOD ORDAINED IN YOUR LIFE (ISAIAH 45:7-FF..”I, THE LORD, CREATE BOTH GOOD AND EVIL {WHOLESOMENESS AND CALAMITY} I
THE LORD DO ALL OF THIS FOR MY PURPOSES”. How can we even claim to ‘have done’ the *evil* that we assume is going against God’s WILL? His Sovereign WILL, PATH, PLAN, DIRECTION?!? Wouldn’t this kind of faith actually be demonic?—if “demonic” could actually mean ‘against’ God’s Will. Ephesians 2: 1-4 states that ****ALL (pantes)**** of US, the body of Christians, were sons of wrath (orge’—’rage’) and disobedient (apatheia) <–as Titus 1:16 says in the passage I just quoted for “those who will receive the burning of the lake of fire and sulphur”. Well, isn’t that us? Let’s continue with the context of Ephesians 2 to eliminate any perverted sense that *we had the free will to repent of this *detestable* nature that will be thrown into fire and sulphur. Ephesians 2:4: “But God being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, {vs. 5} EVEN WHEN WE WERE DEAD (NEKROS) IN OUR TRESPASSES, MADE US ALIVE (SUNEDZOPOIESEN) TOGETHER WITH CHRIST — BY GRACE

(CHARITY/ XARITOS) YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED. HMMMMM….. Doesn’t sound like you did anything to ‘cause (ergon)’ your salvation then, huh?. Doesn’t sound like any merit is involved on OUR PART now, does it? Sounds like WE ALL HAVE BEEN *DETESTABLE (ebdelugmenois)* —**earning hell**…. We can’t even “earn” hell, if God is the One who Ordained our salvation! We were *DEAD* and, therefore, NOT CONSCIOUS to make a ***LIVING DECISION*…to “””””choose our own destruction OR salvation**** . Who’s the AUTHOR now of our lives?!

d) Murderers Matthew 5:21 21“You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder (Greek: murder: phoneusin) and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Now, confer to the following passage of 1 Chronicles 22:8: “You (David) have shed much blood and have fought many wars. You are NOT to build a house for MY NAME (SHEM – authority = Greek: Nomos = Name, Authority), because you have shed much blood on earth in my sight”. At what point did David sin the sin of “murder” when he ‘killed’ more than Saul? Yet, David was instructed to kill Philistines in the NAME of God, by GOD, for GOD – 1 Samuel 23:1-25, “David asked the Lord, “should I go and fight these Philistines?” The LORD answered David, “Yes, go attack the Philistines. Save Keilah”. Funny enough, the very next sentence in this verse mentions Israel’s Army’s own “FEAR”—the very ‘character’ that *gets you thrown into hell* in Revelation 21: 8!….. Did Israel’s Army under David go to hell? I mean, let’s stick with the face of the text…let’s be literal or not! It did say that. I’ve answered to their ‘apportionment’ that will and the Christ in them that won’t. Let’s continue. We don’t have to have an accountant, only God’s *REASON* for categorizing David’s heart for having a “PORTION” of it as being ‘murderous’. In the story of the young warrior David and Saul, there was a jealousy that came over Saul because David was a greater killer of enemies than Saul and David was getting recognized by everyone for this skill over King Saul. Within this gift that David had to kill Israel’s enemies, SOMEWHERE, David’s heart received a murderous portion. As the Bible tells us, David could not complete building the temple to God and gave the command to his son, Solomon, to finish it. The reason WHY David could not complete the Temple’s construction was due to David’s “blood lust” –his apportioned murderous heart. God established David as a Great Warrior, nonetheless, “blood-lustful” or “blood on his hands”. At the same time, David had an PORTION (MERIMNA) THAT WAS SAVED—-his heart for God. Do we remember his “Sexual Immorality (porneo)” with Bathsheba that caused a rift through out his home? Isn’t this the same “sexual immorality”–aka “adultery” that *gets you into the eternal fiery lake of sulfur? Hmmmmm….could this “PORTION” of David been purged by the eternal lake of fire? Could this apportionment of necessary narrative sin be burning in, from, by the *eternal (aeones–not adunae) lake now until “all be subdued under God’s hand” (1 Corinthians 15:25—-The Son Himself {Christ Jesus} Will reign until He has put ALL things under His feet)? Will not death and hell be destroyed by HIM?! = Revelation 20:14, “Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death”. There are two births, as Jesus tells us in John 3: . The first is the flesh, the second, the spirit. The ‘book of life’ does account for us, “those that are judged by their deeds are being

purged by the lake of eternal fire” …just as one is ‘baptized’ by an ever flowing river when one walks into its depths (and out again….lest they drown). John 3:14 continues with Jesus saying that “everyone who believes in HIM may have eternal life”… → John 12:32 Jesus: “And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, WILL DRAW (Greek: “elkouso” = Strongs 1670 – “DRAG; INDUCE; HAUL”) EVERYONE (Greek: “Pantas” = ALL) * TO MYSELF”. So, if THOSE who ‘are generated to confess Christ and *believe* do not receive death in hell (as ‘modern orthodoxy’ presents), then, we should look to the “THOSE”. WHO are the “THOSE” that *WILL PROFESS JESUS AS LORD? Romans 14:11- “….every knee WILL bow (kampsei) and every tongue WILL confess (‘exs/homo/logesetai {one word}) to God. Following this, Romans 14:13 says, “THEREFORE (oun – now, therefore, going forward), NO LONGER, SHOULD WE JUDGE (a sinful act) because this (thinking) eliminates stumbling blocks and snares for our brothers (and sisters). Backing up to Romans 10:9, “If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Now, did not the latter verse in Romans 14:11 declare that you WOULD do this very thing!?! Yes, it did. It did *by Force of God. How’s that for your freedom to die and burn a miserable eternal death in eternal fire and sulphur. YOU, as you are HIS, will NOT die in hell. The portion, the ‘offending eye’, ‘the offending hand’ —the ‘portions’ of the total you will be “cast into the purge”…but this is a transcendent or meta way to explain the complexity of the VERB, THE GOD, causing the entire Narrative to move forward, be, have been written, and conclude. How do we continue to talk ‘meta’ all day long in our physical tempo?….I say it’s easier because it makes EVERYTHING MAKE SENSE FOR A CHANGE. …I’m speaking as an incomplete–coming to be human.

1 John 3:4

“Everyone who makes a practice (poein) of sinning (harmateia) also practices lawlessness (anomos); sin is lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared (ephanerothe) to take away (‘aray) sins, and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides (menon–”remains”) in Him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen (eorake’) Him or known (‘egnoken/ ‘gnoia’) Him”.

Who are we to be ‘known’ by? That is, by what “NAME (Greek: authority, lineage, heritage, law, boundary, hedge, gate, “sheep gate”)” are we retained by? By what NAME are we *becoming* more and more alike. We see in Romans 8: 28-31 that we are *predestined to become (becoming) like Christ. The word, “sunmorphe” used in the Greek for this Predestined ‘coming to be’ literally means, ‘summing into the shape or form of Christ’.

The Fulfillment of the Law

Matthew 5: 17

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Murder

21“You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, a and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell. Matthew 5:22 – Str. 3912/ 2 Corinthians 11:23 – Str. 3912/ Strong’s paraphroneo – “Insane, silly, *mind -swirling*” (Kyle, find passages where Jesus says/ Paul says, “Fool”)

23“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.

25“Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. 26Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.

Adultery

27“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery
(28) but I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
(29) If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell (30) and if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell (*so, does this mean the “merina”

or “portion” of damnable existence goes into everlasting fire?—I think so/ the ‘ontology of the sinful man’/ Christ is, for sure, not referring to physical mutilation).

Divorce

31“It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce’ (32) but I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery (so there is no forgiveness in Grace here?–I say this is not what Jesus is talking about). .

Oaths

33“Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made’ (34) but I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King (36) and do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one (then why is there advocacy in dialogue amongst the Attorney and Judge?/ Why is there TESTIMONY – oath by the defendant which abides by Romans 13:1 –which is established by God HIMSELF? – ).

Eye for Eye

38) “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’

39) But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn the other cheek also.

40) And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41) If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.

42) Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

Love for Enemies

43“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44) But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

45) that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

46) If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?

47) And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?

48) Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

The Rich and the Kingdom of God

Matthew 19:16

Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

17) “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good (Romans 3:1-ff/ – {logically, THEN, how can anyone DO GOOD to get into Heaven AND judgement {a KIND OF JUDGEMENT does exist – obviously for ALL who do bad/ evil—i.e., ALL OF US). If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”

18) “Which ones?” he inquired.

Jesus replied, “ ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony,

19) honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.” 20) “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”

21) Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

22) When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.

23) Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven.

24) Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

25When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”

26Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

This brings me to the point of Grace. I feel that many Universal Reconcilationists do somewhat the same error that all “orthodoxies” (I use this term with tongue and cheek) do. They follow the lead of the Commentator, Minister, Theologian, Teacher versus following the TRUTH of what God is REALLY telling us in Biblical common sense terms through His Bible. We are AFRAID (deilois—-that damnable term) to think for ourselves lest we burn in hell……no joke!!!!

Origin proposed a “free will” that he deemed necessary to fulfill the relationship between us and God that would commence us into Apokatastasis or Universal Reconciliation. Without this ‘free will’, said Origen, we wouldn’t have the glory, nor would GOD, of being reconciled together in a marriage at the very end.

To me, Origen’s kind of “free will” bears no weight on this Holy Marriage. Many humanistic terms employed to obtain God’s Meta actions fall short of explaining God’s INFINITE STRINGS.

But here is the higher point to law and its condemnatory element under Grace: The law only showed our inability to “get saved”…. Nothing we could have done would have granted our damnation or salvation ‘just’ by our works. This means that God “caused” / “created” the *SIN*. Let’s talk *SIN*. Sin means to ‘miss the mark’ (Greek: Harmateia). It is also conveyed in Latin as “Senex” or ‘one who is ‘senile’ and wanders off the straight and narrow’. Then there’s the trigonometric function, “SINE”, from the Latin root, “sinus”, or, “fold in a garment, ***BEND***or ***CURVE***. We have the Arabic geometrical equivalent of SINE, “jiba”, which means, “CHORD OF AN ARC”. Furthermore, Sanskrit gives us the same in “JYA” for “bowstring”.

We are free FROM our *sin* (sine: ‘curving away’) by being tightly pulled into the WILL (Greek: Boule: “the arrow’s shot to the bullseye”) of God by His Grace. His
Grace gives us a *NEW* and *ETERNAL* condition, namely, “Free FROM the WILL of the Flesh” which does ‘will’ to error without one iota of human ability to stop that.

Grace means no judgement (all penalties are dropped past, present and future) because there is no more condemnation from the law that no one could fulfill anyway.

If we can look at Creation from beginning to end, all of its evolutions, the Bible’s STORY of absolute meaning and message of Salvation, gives us the explanation of how the entire sum of

ENERGIES THAT BE. The Bible shows us how Creation (physical, relationships, love, hate, fear, covetousness, lying, saving, heroism, cowardice, believing, not believing, restoration, etc) are all sutured together in one mass of GOD’S rhetorical narration. Can the characters in the Book that was written by the AUTHOR jump off the page and tell the AUTHOR, “I refuse Chapter 5!!!” ? How much more is the creation a tight NARRATION written by the Great Author?!?!

Final note:
I return for a moment to “timidity” or the Greek, “deilias”, which was translated into several English translations as “cowardice”. Delias has its synonyms: Phobos and Eulabeia.

Taking the synonym, Phobos; isn’t “The fear (phobos) of the Lord the beginning of wisdom”? It’s in the context of respect that we are ‘regarding the degree by which we see the LORD in respect to us. When one doesn’t “know” fully God yet, they could have Phobos of others. They could regard others as greater than them. Truly, James 1:27 mentions these people who are spiritual orphan, widows, fatherless, oppressed who need no further *condemnation* to the state they are already in. Did they truly *choose* their path which led them to live on the street or be abused? I think not.

I recall Hosea 2:14-ff where the Pre-incarnate Christ talks through Hosea in ca. 650 B.C. to Judah (all of us) and says, “On that Day you will no longer refer to me as Ba’al but as ISHI. Ba’al was an ‘owner of chattel’ and owned his wife in her fear. She knew he, the Ba’al or Lord, could disown her if he simply felt like he wanted to. ISHI, on the other hand, was the TRUE and GOOD HUSBAND who adored, protected, rallied in and loved HIS wife. Which sounds like the ‘fear’ of losing a marriage due to a whimsical or oppressive Lord, Master, God? Which sound likes a Gracious Christ? DO WE WORSHIP IN FEAR FOR OUR SALVATION?! DO WE WORSHIP LEST WE BE CAST OUT?! Or, do we worship because we are IN LOVE with our Spiritual HUSBAND…our ISHI. This is the structure in Hebrew for YESHUA. Our Husband-Saviour for WHOM we LOVE and ADORATE.

Isn’t it a logical contradiction to have phobos or delia in worship of God that you might go to hell if you do wrong? Then why is it taught in most ‘’’orthodox”” churches today? Jesus said, “In the last days, many will profess Christ as Lord but DENY (ARNOMAI) the POWER of Him. They call themselves Christ followers yet deny HIS ultimate Predeterminate counsel and all saving Grace.

REASON BASED IN EXEGESIS TO FREEDOM FROM IGNORANCE

“Paideia” (cf. Dr. Werner Yeager’s treatment on “Christian Paideia” and “Classical Greek Paideia”) was the classical education for the first century Christian Children which means, “to walk; walk; the walk”—-i.e., “the little *footers*”. One could use the Star Wars term, “Padua (same term as Paideia) ”, for “young ones learning “The Force”. We see this term in “Pediatrics” for medical care for the youth.

The Paideia for 1st century Christian children consisted of (1) Greek and Latin language (2) Logic (3) Rhetoric. All such Classical education came DIRECTLY out of Aristotle and Plato’s Greek and references to the classical myths of Homer on down (cf. my treatment on Homeric ties with the synoptic Gospels). There would have been no confusion between the New Testament text presented by Paul and the Paideia because Paul was Hellenistically-classically trained. Paul cryptically if not openly referred to the classics and the Great Philosophers in the Scripture. Paul, by inspiration of God, fulfilled the philosophy of the Greek writings by stitching them into their final stages with the Resurrection of the unknown god at Mars hill. Paul’s Christianity was understood by the Hellenized World, i.e., to the Barbarians, Pagan Rome, Greece, and Europe. Everyone would have understood the Greek usage of the Greek New Testament because the words were interlocked with the Hellenized culture.

So, the Greek usage during the ante-nicene first century Church (ca. 33 A.D. to ca. 350 A.D.) was, for sure, philosophically and linguistically Aristotelian and Platonic based. Alexander the Great, who “Hellenized (made everyone learn Greek/ think Greek) the world, was the direct padua/ ‘mathetikon’ of Aristotle —or, “Mathetekes (mathematician – i.e., “disciple” is known in the New Testament).

Now, let’s apply this knowledge to Biblical exegesis:

APAKATASTASIS vs. THE ENGLISH ETERNAL “JUDGMENT”

THE FIRST OF TWO ‘HELL-VERSES’

I will use this definition again within this treatment but I would like to place this first for our “mental coathangers”: Aristotle’s “Kolosus (judgment) is used for the SAKE/ BENEFIT of the one being punished” – i.e., IN ORDER FOR REMISSION OF THE SIN!/ A RECTIFICATION!!!

The ‘eternal scourging was/is our English idea of “Eternity” from the perverted Latin Vulgate, “Aeturnus”, meant which was, “eternity without end”.

Aeones (a certain duration of time) Kolosis (affliction for the benefit of the afflicted unto remission of guilt) which was not understood or applied in the Medieval mind of King James or his Biblical *version*) is a tool put upon the ‘evil doer’ in order for their eye or hand to burn and not them!

Aristotle says that “anger for revenge (Greek: “ekdikes – the action of inflicting harm or hurt on someone for an injury or wrong suffered at their hands) is a “habit” based on appetite and is rooted in emotions–human emotions” –> cf. Aristotle’s “Rhetoric”–Book 1/ Chapter 10/ vs. 13 in the “Basic Writings of Aristotle”.

Let’s continue:

When we look at Matthew 25:41 Jesus uses the term “judgment {Greek: kolosus}. As we see the final usage of it in the “final judgment“ in the following verses: “Then He will also say to those on the left hand (sinister gyrate/ hand of no blessing), Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared the the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave ME no food: I was thirsty and you gave ME no drink. …etc.

Might I remind you that King David spoke to God using the exact same words and defined “Kolosus” in the process of the ‘destroyed enemies’ actually ‘’coming back to be ashamed”: Psalms 6:9: “Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping”..(David continues this prayer in Psalms 6:10, “Let all my enemies be ashamed and sorely vexed; LET THEM RETURN AND BE ASHAMED”.

Is this NOT a *RETURN* to repentance?! Is this NOT a return to the ‘acknowledgement’ of their wrong?! Is this NOT the VERY usage of “Kolosus”—”Judgment” in the Greek New Testament of Christ’s words that Aristotle used of “JUDGMENT- Kolosus”!?!? Let’s go on:

Jesus continues to express *those* who did NOT give charity: “…as you did not do unto the least of them you did not do it unto ME.

*These beings* who act as non-charitable are not the full ‘being’, not the ontological-’’’coming to be” –”whole” person who is FINALLY RECTIFIED. If there was the word, “REVENGE”, as Aristotle continues, it would be for the benefit of the Avenger. This ‘revenge’ would be “in reaction” to an act by the infractor of the Law. Aren’t works of the Law Destroyed by Christ?! The VERY THING that holds to account damnation upon the infractor of the Law?!?!

Again, look at the words in Matthew 25:40: “The KING (! quoting King David right here from Psalms 5-6!) will say, –The KING will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. Then he (King David – past in foreshadowed *language*) will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels….”. .

Are not even the angels subdued under Christ’s feet at the end where death, hell, all powers and principalities subdued?! Continuing Matthew 25: “…..will go away into everlasting punishment ( kolasin aionion —durative infliction for the benefit of the sinner-Aristotle defined/ New Testament used), but the righteous into eternal life”.

These are two different allotments and two kinds of ‘beings’. Once again, Aristotle does indeed use this term in his “rhetoric”: Aristotle: “Kolosus (judgment)” is used for the SAKE/ BENEFIT of the one being punished” – i.e., IN ORDER FOR REMISSION OF THE SIN!/ A RECTIFICATION!!!

The eternal scourging (not our English idea of “Eternity” from the perverted Latin Vulgate, “Aeturnus”, which was moreover used in the Medieval King James *version*) is a tool put upon the ‘evil doer’ in order for their eye or hand to burn and not them! Aristotle says that “anger for

revenge (Greek: “ekdikes – the action of inflicting harm or hurt on someone for an injury or wrong suffered at their hands} is a “habit based on appetite that is rooted in emotions–human emotions” –> cf. Aristotle’s “Rhetoric”–Book 1/ Chapter 10/ vs. 13 in the “Basic Writings of Aristotle”. This kind of revenge is ‘retributory’ and you see it working in legalism throughout the Middle East. Wars find their way fairly easy into such common grounds of “eye for an eye” mentality.

Once more: Kolosin Aeonon = “a duration or time of beneficial affliction to bring one back to restoration”. THIS is the meaning in the classical, Platonic and Aristotelian Greek from which the New Testament was the “catcher’s mitt” for such terms. Therefore, terms such as judgment, salvation, faith, God, Logos, etc. have been all too familiar for the Greek speaking New Testament Church who knew EXACTLY what they meant when they were edified and taught their children in the Paideia!!!
