For every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess, Jesus Christ is Lord."
The knees are symbolic of that which keeps you upright, boastful and arrogant in nature, to bend the knee means to humble yourself before the universe and the power manifesting through nature into you, not to hamper it's arrival by being an Egoist.
The knee is a symbol of moral strength, or submission to the laws of order and progress, by restraining the lower activities (emotional center) and weakening them by bending to the higher will WITHIN.
Every tongue shall confess
The tongue is a symbol of the expression of truth, or the active manifestation of the logos (word) on several planes of nature.
"Their tongues protrude from their mouths as far as the world of Brahma". The higher self and the Individual duality seated in the casual-body are united in harmony, and their expression of truth is in accordance with divine reality, the actual realising of potential.
The tongue is also a symbol of the expression of falsity and perversion of truth and right. And the son of God, the active power of the eternal truth, taking the "sword of the spirit" went forth in the strength of the Divine Will, slew his enemies the desires , and "tore out their tongues," a symbol of falsity of perversity, and the vitality which had before animated them was dissipated and flowed to the lower planes, where in it was resolved into its primary constituents.
"By the tongue is signified the doctrine of the church or any religion, but in an opposite sense, false doctrine."
"Casting out the old man, plucking out the right eye, maiming self of the right hand-there is no growth without some sorrow. Conflict is the word that defines man's path from darkness to light. No holiness is won by any other means than this, that wickedness should be slain day by day, and hour by hour.
In long lingering agony often, with the blood of the heart pouring out at every quivering vein, you are to cut right through the life and being of that sinful self; to do what the Word does, pierce to the dividing asunder of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. 3:7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: " The INNER animals.
James says that, even in his day, all beasts, birds, serpents, and sea creatures had been tamed by humans. 3:8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
Jesus Christ is lord
A symbol of the indwelling Higher self (Christ) or divine spirit in man, evolving towards complete universal manifestation. In other words, it is the Christ power, but not quite yet perfected in the human heart/brain.
It represents the personality towards the end of the earthy cylcle of life, becoming perfected through meditation, as in the death of the lower nature and the rise of the higher Christ consciousness.
The meaning of the symbol varies somewhat between the exalted Christ and the human, un perfected Christ power/soul, as one still living at the animal level of life on this earth.

ORDER OF THE LEFT-HAND PATH - CHRISTIANITY EXPOSED
"In Christianity the instincts of the subjugated and the oppressed come into the foreground: it is the lowest classes which seek their salvation in it. Here the casuistic business of sin, self-criticism, conscience-inquisition is practised as a specific against boredom; here an emotional attitude towards a power called 'God' is kept constantly alive (through prayer); here the highest things are considered unachievable, gifts, 'grace'. Here also public openness is also lacking; the hole-and-corner, the dark chamber is
Christianity. Here the body is despised, hygiene repudiated as sensuality; the Church even resists cleanliness (the first measure taken by the Christians after the expulsion of the Moors was the closure of the public baths of which Cordova alone possessed 270).
A certain sense of cruelty towards oneself and others is Christian; hatred of those who think differently; the will to persecute. Mortal hostility against the masters of the earth, against the 'noble', that is also Christian. Hatred of mind, of pride, courage, freedom, liberating of mind, is Christian; hatred of the sense, of the joy of the senses, of joy in general is Christian." Friedrich Nietzsche.
JEHOVAH: THE TYRANT-GOD
The Judaeo-Christians' own Bible shows Jehovah, their god, to be a psychotic megalomaniac.
One of Jehovah's first actions towards mankind was to attempt to deny his new creation wisdom, lest his position as slavemaster be threatened. (Gen. 2:16-17, 3:1-7).
Jehovah is a god whose bloodlust against humanity can't be satisfied until the Apocalypse described by John in the Revelation destroys most of mankind and leaves Jehovah and Jesus enthroned as world tyrants above remnant.
From his rejection of the fruit offering of Cain in favour of the blood sacrifice of Abel (Gen. 4:3-5) until the final Apocalypse, when blood will flow from 'the winepress of the wrath of God' (Rev. 14:19-20) the hands of Jehovah are dripping with blood.
OLD TESTAMENT PATRIARCHS & PROPHETS
The Old Testament makes it clear that the patriarchs and prophets chosen by Jehovah to be revered by mankind as 'holy' are nothing but the lowest scum.
ABRAHAM pimps his wife off as a whore onto Pharaoh and King Abimelech, by claiming she is his sister; a trick with Jehovah acting as a criminal accomplice, which gains him much loot. (Gen. 12, 20).
LOT, Abraham's nephew, offers his two daughters to a mob when they threaten to homosexually rape two angels. (Gen. 19:8).
DAVID commits adultery with Bathsheba then arranges for her husband to be killed in battle. (Sam. II-11).
ELISHA, successor to Elijah as Jehovah's great prophet. Whilst traveling to Bethel he is teased by a large group of little children about his baldness. The prophet curses them in the name of Jehovah, and two she-bears come out of the woods and tear 42 of them. (II Kings
Jesus merciful and loving is the image portrayed of him by the Christian churches. The New Testament, however, shows him to be just as psychotic and megalomaniacal as his alleged father Jehovah.
This is not surprising since, (according to Matt. 1:1) he comes from the tainted lineage of Abraham, David and other criminals.
While he demands of his followers that they remain totally submissive in relation to their own enemies (Sermon on the Mount, Matt. 5-7) Jesus commands that those who do not submit to his reign be brought before him and slain. (Luke 19:27).
Jesus declares that all those who refuse to accept his divinity shall be damned. (Mark 16:16). What this damnation shall be is made clear: 'everlasting fire.' (Matt. 25:41).
Jesus' megalomania gets out of hand when he describes the day when he will "come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory." (Matt. 25:31).
THE FINAL HOLY BLOOD-ORGY
It is appropriate that the Judaeo-Christian Bible should end with an orgy of bloodlust against Jehovah's long-suffering human creation.
In The Revelation we read of the torment of fire and brimstone upon most of mankind, in the presence of a sadistic Jesus and his angels. (Rev.14:10-11).
Jesus will then reign over the earth for 1000 years, after which he finds it inexplicably necessary to again slaughter much of humanity by a colossal war. (Rev. 20:6). He and Jehovah will then sit up thrones, attended by servants, within a city built of precious stones: an Oriental despot's fantasy! (Rev. 21-22).
Wherever Judaeo-Christianity has exerted influence it has ravaged mankind morally, intellectually and physically.
Christianity has sought to impose limitations upon the mind. Ignorance is elevated to a holy state. Paul declares: "For wisdom of this world is foolishness to God." (I Cor. 3:19).
This is the mentality which gave history the Dark Ages, the Inquisition, book burning, a legacy of dark ignorance which continues to have its impact today.
It is the same mentality which even now motivates 'concerned Christian parents' to burn books containing material far less 'immoral' than the chronicle of rape, murder and pillage contained in their own Bible.
It is Christianity which has soured relations between the sexes with its commandments for the subjugation of women. "Wives must submit yourselves to your husbands"; "But I shall suffer not a woman to teach, not to usurp authority over man", writes the neurotic Paul. How different this is to the attitude of pre-Christian Europe, which regarded women as prophetesses.
The Judaeo-Christian dogma has been nothing but a curse upon mankind. Now, as we strive to free ourselves from this plague, may it be humanity's turn to curse the tyrant-god, the demented Nazarene, and their whole noxious creed.
