Because christians and Muslims read their so called Holy books in their Literal destructive form.
This is being written in light of the latest shenanigans involving a bunch of TV rednecks that make duck calls, ONLY in America could such a mindless TV Program exist, to keep those lower conscious, gmo fed, fluoride saturated, high fructose corn syrup brains, hypnotized from the real state of our decaying freedoms.
So the main character Robertson quoted the bible, he quoted the following verse, then all hell broke loose, he got fired from A&E, and now people are in an uproar and boycotting the network.
All of this from a very deep and misunderstood bible verse, being quoted from a NON-reality TV show personality.
We can explain the bible verse, but we cannot explain the American peoples fascination with a bunch of southern inbred rednecks calling ducks, it's called poor quality DNA.
The high speed collision between two full up drunk rednecks in a double wide.
Here is that verse.
If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. [NIV Leviticus 20:13]
Now I will tell you that this verse as well as the rest of the biblical verses and stories are NOT literal, they are pure allegory, they are parables, they are dark sayings of old, how do I know, because the bible told me so.
lets look at the following biblical verses and see if the bible itself qualifies itself as parables, dark sayings and allegory.
THE BIBLE AS SYMBOL
Our first order of business in this quest is to see if we can justify considering the Bible as symbolic rather then literal. We must use the Bible itself.
1.2 Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. So here is the Bible itself telling us not to take it literally.
God hath made us able ministers of the New Testament, not of the letter, but of the spirit; for the letter (literal interpretation) killeth, but the spirit (allegorical or symbolic interpretation) giveth life. (II Cor. 3.6)
We use great plainness of speech. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost (materialistic). (II Cor. 4.3)
If our earthly house of this tabernacle (the physical body) were dissolved we have a building of God (the astral and mental bodies) a house not made with hands (but constructed by the angelic builders) eternal (the causal body) in the heavens (the superphysical planes). (II Cor. 5.1)
Awake thou that sleepest and arise from the dead (the physical plane) and Christ shall give thee light. (Eph.5.14)
WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT THAT THE BIBLE IS THE LITERAL WORD OF GOD. But it is all mythology, it’s all symbolic, but you have to understand the meaning of the mythology, in order to grasp what the bible is saying.
2. Galatians 4:24 Which things are an allegory: the definition of a myth includes the term allegory. Here again the Bible tells us it is symbolic.
3. Matthew 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: The Bible is saying that all of Jesus statements were symbolic.
4. Mark 4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
Ephesians 3:9: "And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ". It says MYSTERY, well what is a mystery, it's just something deeper.
Ephesians 5:32 "This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church".
Ephesians 6:18 "Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel".
Colossians 4:3 "Praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ".
ANOTHER BIBLE CODE? This is more like the Plain View Bible Code, or you might call it the Purloined Bible Code. The Apostle Paul prayed that he might make known the mystery of the gospel, Eph6:19, so it shouldn't come as a surprise when we find things hidden in the Word
5. Psalm 78:2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: Here the Bible states that GOD speaks in parables . And what are dark sayings of old. Obviously they are symbolic statements.
6. In the Book of Proverbs describes wisdom. It explains how one becomes wise. Proverbs 1:6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. Dark sayings is mythology
7. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 2 cor.4:3
Veiled means that you don't take it literally
8. But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. 2 cor. 3:14
again we see the bible is veiled, it is hidden to those that read it literally.
9. We should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter." (Romans 7:6)
10. Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak in parables? EZ:20 Here God speaks in parables
here it says god speaks in parables
11. 1Cr 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory. Here it says god ordained the hidden wisdom, even before the world
12. Eze. 17:2 Son of man, put forth a riddle, and speak a parable unto the house of Israel. God orders riddles
13. Jdg.14:19 And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he went down to Ashkelon, and slew thirty men of them, and took their spoil, and gave change of garments unto them which expounded the riddle. And his anger was kindled, and he went up to his father's house. Here it says god was pleased when they cracked the riddle, and rewarded them.
14. Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of GOD to conceal a thing: but honor of kings is to search out a matter. And here its Gods honor to conceal things, and make you figure it out.
15. 2Cor.4:3,4 "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."
Do you see, the bible says it is HID to them that are lost, they are lost because they read it literally.
16. Isaiah 9,10 And he said, Go and tell this people, hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes
17. Col 1:26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints.
18. JOB 27:11 I will teach you by the hand of God: that which is with the Almighty will I not conceal.
Here god says thet he will conceal
19. MAT 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
babes mean people that read the scriptures Literally
20. psalm 89 might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world."
Here again God speaks in parables, he hides things from the profane
21. Proverbs 1:6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.
dark sayings are things like "she spilled the beans" "someone is shooting the bull" "it's raining cats and dogs"
22. 1 cor 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
23. IS. 48:6 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.
24. Eziekel 3:5 For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language, but to the house of Israel;
25. exodus 4:11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?
27. "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God." (Jesus Christ - The Holy Bible: Matthew 22:29)
28. Hebrews 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Here God is saying that his word is like milk to you, as a babe must drink milk before it can eat solid food. God is saying his word is for the the one who is ready for meat, in other words, when one is ready for the deeper meaning, this is the meat, for the one full of age (wisdom). Reading Gods word literally is MILK, it is for the unskillful, and they will not understand.
Here the fact that this is all consciousness is made clear. It says to know the mystery of the Kingdom of God. Where is the Kingdom of God ? . (Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.)
All of the stories in the bible are INNER statements written in dark sayings, allegory and parables, you just read all that above, so there is no need to believe anything, just understand what the bible writers are telling you.
The statement concludes by saying that "unto them that are without". Outside of the meditative state. Outside of the inner realm of consciousness where exists the Kingdom of God..
Here we see that God speaks in mysteries, riddles and parables, He puts riddles in peoples mouths, he shuts their eyes and ears, he sends strange and hard speeches, he sends dark sayings, and that is Gods glory that he conceal a thing, he imparts secret wisdom and make you and I search it. His word is as milk to the unskillful, without age (reason).
Theres no doubt that the bible is showing you that, you can't read it at face value, you have to look for the deeper meaning, the secret wisdom, the dark sayings, the hidden and so forth.
The problem with Christianity as a whole, including all the pastors and tv evangelist pay no attention to these verses and read and teach the bible literally, which is an abomination unto god.
His word is mysterious and wants you to search it out, the truth is not given to the vain, to the once a week Jesus mercenary.
There's no doubt is there, about what is being said here, the Bible was written in a certain metaphorical, symbolic language of old, which is mythology.
ITS ALL A MYTH
And Nietzche said all myths are truths
Joseph Campbell says all myths are tribal and scientific truths.
So the Bible is made up of mythological stories but they have real value to you and I.
The Bible is a science book, an astronomy book an anatomy book, and a psychology book.
Religion has no idea of the hidden truths in the Bible as they go around reading and teaching the stories in their literal sense, which is DEAD letter for the masses which acts as a control book for the masses.
Luke 14:26 Luke 14 Luke 14:25-27
If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
Do you hate your Mother and Father? according to Jesus you must.
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you."
"The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ."
"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword."
And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more
Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong Luk 22:38 And they said Lord, behold here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough?
"Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided,three against two, and two against three.
The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law."
"He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment,
and buy one."
So which is it, do we beat swords into plowshares or beat plowshares into swords, or do we sell our clothes and go buy a sword or do we need two swords?
2 Kings 8:12 "You will set fire to their fortified places, kill their young men with the sword, dash their little children to the ground, and rip open their pregnant women." This is God's commandment mind you. Rip open pregnant woman, wow! What A god! My god! can you believe that? Holy mackerel.
"Mothers ye shall dash your babies against rocks, and eat the first born of your daughters" "and fathers ye shall eat the first born of your sons" Wow ! eat your children and bash them against rocks ! Really ! What a cruel God!
Hosea 13:16 Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up. Gods commandment mind you!
Deuteronomy 28:53 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, therewith thine enemies shall distress thee.
here god commands children to be eaten. Isaiah 13:16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished. Gods commandment again!
Psalm 137:8.9 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones. God said We should be happy to dash the little one against stones.
The Lord sends bears to kill 42 children for making fun of someone:
2 Kings 2:23-24 Elisha went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head.
And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty-two children of them.
Children put to the sword:
1 Kings 3:24.25 And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.
Isaiah 13:15-18 If God can find you, he will "thrust you through," smash your children "to pieces" before your eyes, and rape your wife. Here God will rape your wife after killing your childrn.
Duet: The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.
Jer 19:9 And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, wherewith
EZ:20 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak in parables?1 Cor. 3:2 ''Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom. We impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God.
Oh ! these are parables and secret hidden wisdom, Mythology, now I get it.
Why then hasn't religion told me this, why hasn't your average soap box tv evangelist or corner church, black collar wearing minister told us this?
Because they havn't a clue, they've scarcely even read the bible, so how could they possibly
know, much less teach you anything?
Consciously or unconsciously, a figure-of-speech begins as a communication device for getting someone's attention: to intrude into their mind and relay a message; and then goes on to become an accepted and habitual part of the vernacular.
This is how God gets your attention, by speaking to you in figures of speech.
Now, I have an axe to grind with you, should I get my grinder?
THE BIBLE ITSELF INSTRUCTS US
The Bible is very clear that its words are symbolic and not to be taken literally. Galatians 4:22 says that the Old Testament story of Abraham and Sarah is allegory. It means something else.
Romans 2:28 says a Jew is not one outwardly but inwardly. 2 Corinthians 3:6 specifically warns us about taking these words literally, be not a minister of the letter.
2 Corinthians 3:15 says that when people read the Old Testament a veil is over their heart, meaning they do not understand what they see, it is hidden.
Matthew 13:34 says Jesus never spoke but in a parable. Everything was symbolic. But what have we done. We have fought and killed each other over temples which do not exist, and stories we do not understand.
Samples of how to read the Bible
1. "thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;"
Sackcloth represents the poor. In this case the spirit is poor. The person is down. God has provided a new spirit and the depression is lifted.
2. "There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys, an whose emission was like that of horses." Ezekiel 23:20
"She" is the mind. The mind lusts after the lower physical things. The genitals represent life, creation, origins. The genitals of the lower are brutish and stubborn (donkey).
They are the kinds of thoughts that will not follow the higher. They stay where they are.
The emission means the seed that enters "her". Its life is brutish and stubborn but its origin is the horse which is the carrier to heaven. The horse is always used to transport the Gods to heaven, like Pegasus.
The heaven however is the mind that is controlled by the stubborn brutish nature. The combination of the two is a person who is very stubborn and brutish but takes charge and directs things from the lower or physical nature.
3. "Fair Babylon, you destroyer happy those who pay you back the evil you have done us! Happy is he who seizes your babies and dashes them against the rocks." Psalm 137:8-9
Babylon is the lower mind which is filled with attraction to the physical. It is not spiritual at all. To seize the minds babies is to cut off the new thoughts.
The ideas and concepts that are born out of the lower mind are considered babies and to dash them against the rocks is to destroy the misguided new thoughts and concepts through the spirit which is steady. The Bible refers to it as the rock of salvation and the old song is called Rock of Ages.
4. "And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man:" Gen 27:11
Hair that grows out of the body can mean either the Spirit or the physical senses which must be cut away. It depends on the sect. Some cut their hair such as Buddhists because to them hair symbolizes thoughts from the lower mind.
Others let their hair grow (Islam) because it represents spirit. Here Esau who is the culprit in the story has hair which means lower thoughts while Jacob is of the spirit without lower thoughts growing from him.
5. "Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times" Proverbs 5:19
Her means the higher spirit. The inner light. Hind and Roe are deer which are symbols of a closeness to nature and a leaping toward the higher nature.
The breasts provide milk which is spiritual food. Understanding , enlightenment. Thus the proverb says to allow the mind to commune with nature reaching up to the higher and feed on the milk or understanding that comes forth from the new mind. Interpreted by bill Donahue of hidden meanings
Can you interpret these verses?
7 "And you shall eat it as barley cakes; and bake it using fuel of human waste in their sight."Ezekiel 4:12
8. "I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste." Solomon 2:3
9. "My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door, and my bowels were moved for him." Solomon 5:4
10. "You will set fire to their fortified places, kill their young men with the sword, dash their little children to the ground, and rip open their pregnant women." 2 Kings 8:12
11. "and you shall have a stick with your weapons; and when you sit down outside, you shall dig a hole with it, and turn back and cover up your excrement. Because the LORD your God walks in the midst of your camp, to save you and to give up your enemies before you, therefore your camp must be holy, that he may not see anything indecent among you, and turn away from you."
12. "I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. lev 26:16
Hard huh ! Its all symbols, dark sayings and allegory, the verses and stories in the bible are like hard nuts, that have cracked many a tooth, for the true seeker of truth.
We read other strange stories in our Bible, such as the following. The Lord told Moses to force Pharaoh by plagues to free the Israelites from bondage and captivity; but after each plague He hardened Pharaoh's heart. Samson was overcome, not by the ropes and willow branches which bound him but by having his hair cut off and being bound with that.
The walls of Jericho were brought down by shouts and trumpeting. A fig tree was cursed and withered by the Lord of Love for not bearing fruit early in the spring before the Passover.
All of these stories and many others are quoted when criticisms are directed against the Christian Scriptures and, unless one possesses the keys of interpretation, one must remain silent, unable to defend even one's own Bible.
It is that the Bible like other World Scriptures is written in a particular metaphorical language full of imagery and symbolism.
This very ancient language was designed to reveal deep truths, to convey metaphysical ideas, to describe supersensory states of consciousness and the spiritual experiences of exalted men and women.
The authors who wrote in this allegorical manner wanted to reveal these deeply hidden mysterious truths and to describe interior mystical experiences.
They used actual historical personages and actual geographical places to weave a representation of eternal truths. All earth myths used actual geographical places and personages to weave their myths around, the Bible is no different in this regard.
In the Jason and Argo myth, Jason landed in Georgia on the black sea, but its a myth, and everyone knows that, But you see the usage of actual geographical locations. Such is the nature of all myths.
In fact, not one single person portrayed in the Bible ever existed, including Jesus. Jesus is a picture of the sun, among a long list of past sun gods.
All of the personages and places in the Bible relate to the physical body, the emotional body and the intellectual mind. As with all myths the river Jordan the land of Egypt etc, have their true meaning in the human psyche.
And what did the fictitious biblical character Paul say ?
Paul said, go beyond the literal meaning of the Old Testament. He asks us to obey the spirit of the law, not the letter. "He is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, and not in the letter."
(Romans 2:29) "We should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter."
(Romans 7:6) "The letter kills, but the spirit gives life." (2 Corinthians 3:6) Note: In all these cases the word letter means literal
SO then, Is there a real heaven and a real hell?
Remember the Bible says don't be a minister of the LETTER (literal), but of the SPIRIT
And consider Proverbs 15:24 A word to the wise above (operating from your higher state of mind) you can depart from Hell beneath, (being ruled by your lower nature).
You see Heaven and Hell are states of consciousness only and not literal, so relax.
Religion and Evangelists want you to believe its real so they can control you, so you will need them. And give them MONEY.
Now that you have read all that, do you really think that some god gives a rats A$$ what you do with your physical body, of course not, "god is NOT subject to your mind, and neither can he be' why not? because the mind is carnal.
In order to further understand the metaphysical spiritual meanings of ancient texts, you MUST read GA gaskells dictionary of scripture and myth.
In this book he explains the meanings of all the biblical names, places etc...
For instance thw word "man" actually means mind, not a Literal human being, the word " woman " means either the emotions or the spirit.
You have to be well read and informed before you can open the bible and read it, or else you will fail, you will not get it, and this NOT getting it is what has screwed up this world.
Don't even attempt to read the bible unless you have gaskells dictionary at arms length, reading the books of the Joseph Campbell is also necessary, Joseph was the greatest teacher of myth in the world.
So lets get to this mythology, to these parables, to these dark sayings, hidden things, hidden wisdom, veiled words.
Homosexuals in the Bible are not what religious brain washing has told you, it is as the above says it is, pure spiritual allegory and NEVER, NEVER, NEVER LITERAL!!!!!!
Where was jesus crucified in the book of Revelations? In a place spiritually called Sodom and Egypt. Do you see the spiritual, it means NOT a literal place, just as paul said, don't be a minister of the letter ( literal ) but of the spirit ( the spiritual understanding ).
From the story of LOT
But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them. [KJV Genesis 19:4-5]
Pretty nasty stuff right there, but it is pure spiritual allegory.
Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable. [NIV Leviticus 18:22]
If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. [NIV Leviticus 20:13]
There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the Lord thy God for any vow: for even both these are abominations unto the Lord thy God. [KJV Deuteronomy 23:17-18]
Because of this, God gave them over to their own shameful lusts. Even their women exchanging natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received themselves the penalty for their perversion. [Romans 1:26-27]
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. [KJV I Corinthians 9:19]
These six passages represent the only weapon the strict biblicist has against homosexuals. Once emptied, little to no ammunition remains for reloading this antiquated six-shooter. Albeit a small arsenal, the biblicist argues the gun is right on target, there’s no room for misunderstanding the Bible teaches homosexuality is wrong.
So, we must somehow stay alive until all six bullets have been spent. Some survive the assault by taking cover, perhaps in a closet, until the gunfire is over. Others are grazed and wounded in the battle, but live to tell the tale.
Perhaps they become disfigured by the assault, or walk with a limp from a leg wound, and must, from then on, feel awkward and embarrassed when approaching others. Tragically, others don’t survive the battle at all.
When one is trying to reach a higher consciousness in meditation, those thoughts that enter your mind which are negative and pull you back down are homosexual in nature, other thoughts that arise in the form of negative, which are the same quality as previous thoughts are homosexuals in bible speak, you see the bible uses these terms to describe things that go on in the human mind.
If a man ( mind ) lies with a man ( mind ) as one lies with a woman ( the lower emotions ), both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. [NIV Leviticus 20:13]
Do you see how clever the writers deceived the ignorant masses, in the biblical context everything that comes from, man ( mind ) is homosexual, and that word has few meanings, one of which means deviant nature, from god's prospective every time you are thinking and using mind, that is a homosexual in the biblical spiritual parables.
Death is a symbol of killing out the lower nature and all the thoughts that arise from lower egoic thinking, these must die.
Else where you will read about taking NO thought in meditation, that is the only state that you can commune with the higher consciousness ( the universe ). When mind is in the way, you are blocking god, and god hates that, because you never shutdown all the internal chatter, mind stuff ( homosexuals 0 it is deviant for sure, just analyze the thoughts that come into your mind just for a few minutes and you will see why god cannot be subject to your mind.
That's why God hates homosexuals, because it represents people that feed off of their emotions, and continue to give birth to new homosexual thought patterns, that have arisen from the first of their own kind.
Lets interpret the rest of the verses.
There shall be no whore ( whore is a symbol of the lower emotions, those outbursts etc...) of the daughters of Israel ( daughters of Israel is a symbol of the higher spiritual thinking, these lower thoughts will not arise in your mind )l, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the Lord thy God for any vow: for even both these are abominations unto the Lord thy God. [KJV Deuteronomy 23:17-18]
The house of the lord is the pristine state of mind one reaches when in a high state of meditation, taking no thought as jesus instructed, when there is no mind, there is no evil, no sodomites, no whores, no dogs, why? because you have shut the door on the the thoughts that arise from the carnal mind. Anything that comes from the mind is an abomination to the lord.
Because of this, God gave them over to their own shameful lusts. Even their women exchanging natural relations for unnatural ones ( when the spiritual nature is mingling with the thoughts of the lower emotional mind ). In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women ( the mind abandons the natural relationship with ones own higher spiritual nature and goes whoring after the thoughts from lower mind thinking) and were inflamed with lust for one another ( the mind that loves to be embroiled in the things of the lower nature ). Men ( mind ) committed indecent acts with other men ( minds ), and received themselves the penalty for their perversion. [Romans 1:26-27]
It is a perversion unto god to constantly drag up stuff from the lower mind or from the subconscious mind, because it is full of flying things, creeping things and crawly things. And when operating from this state you harm people with your words and actions.
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?
Be not deceived: neither fornicators ( fornicators are those higher thoughts that mingle and intercourse with the lower mind thoughts ), nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers ( all have the same basic meaning ) of themselves with mankind, nor thieves ( the lower mind thoughts that steal away your higher potential mental activity ), nor covetous ( the lower mind covets every thought that you have and tries to bring it to a lower state by converting it an emotional negative thought ), nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, ( all have the same meaning ) drunk is a symbol of the lower mind, one drunk on their own ego, look at me, aren't I the cats meow, shall inherit the kingdom of God. [KJV I Corinthians 9:19]
The kingdom of god is WITHIN you, not out there in the physical world, so if this kingdom is INTERNAL, don't you think these verses and stories are referring to the internal state, the state of ones own consciousness? Of course they are.
" Look not lo here, nor lo there, for the KINGDOM of god is WITHIN you "
It's ALL internal warfare, the war is in the mind it is between your ears, between the left and right hemispheres of your brain, the whores, the thieves, the prostitutes, adulterers, fornicators, the idolators etc... is the left brain activity.
The good stuff in the bible always comes from the EAST, which is actually the right hemisphere of the brain, this is gods pleasant portion, you can only get there by taking NO thought. No stain can enter the right side, that's virgin consciousness, one devoid of all thought.
Consider also the following statement from Psalms.
" your enemies are those of your own house" meaning your own consciousness, you own thoughts, there's no enemies OUT there they are IN there.
You hear people say, first get your own house in order before you tell me what to do, do you see how far back these dark sayings go.
The bible is mind stuff, it's all about your mind, your thoughts, your consciousness, written id parable and allegory.
NOW that you know this great truth, you now have more wisdom and understanding.
They are symbolic not LITERAL. (Don't be a minister of the LETTER) so we always look for the metaphysical interpretation of the scriptures.
"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe." Albert Einstein
"A person is smart, but people are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals, and you know it." Tommy Lee Jones MIB.
What does it mean, "and he drove out all those that bought and sold pigeons in the temple:"
Remember the temple is the human brin as you will understand by the time you finish reading this page.
The temple is the brain, the ark is the brain.
pigeons crap all over the place, and make cooing noises, that are very annoying.
The pigeons that were run out of the temple by Jesus, are those people that partake in senseless chatter, talking about others, the crap just flows from the lips of iniquity, these are the pigeon brained. Endless talking and scheming, these people create all the crap that exists in the world. They live totally off of their animal nature and animal desires.
These people have not yet fully matured, and are not yet ready for strong meat (higher spiritual knowledge), and they should be treated as a child that has not yet matured. They will eventually rise to the higher understanding after many hundreds or thousands of incarnations in the flesh as ( the flesh pots of egypt).
And they will ran out of the temple upon the return of jesus to the temple. As well as the money changers, those greedy cooperate entities such as Religion and government. Those peoples minds that are against the natural order of the cosmos, these are the money changers.
Do we use symbols in our language, today?
I therefore submit to you, in your own language, in symbols (dark sayings). Nothing means what it says, but you understand all of it.

To "bury the hatchet", or "chew the rag", or "hit the road",or "push the envelope", or "kick the bucket", or "go on the wagon", or "burn your bridges", or "bite the dust", or "carry your cross", or "drag your feet", or "dig in your heels", are figures-of-speech not meant to be taken literally; but semantically. You do understand what the word semantics means, don't you? Good! I thought so!
The Apostle Paul used a figure-of-speech when he quoted from Prov25:21 and told the Romans (12:20) to feed their enemies and give them to drink "for in so doing you shall heap coals of fire on their heads!"
It sounds harsh and hurtful in the natural and literal, but the figure only means that your kindness will make them ashamed of themselves for the way they've treated you.
When the figure says something that hides the real meaning, it's like a cross between an ambiguity and an allegory. Like speaking in code, or wearing a disguise. Its a veil that one must remove to get a glimpse of the goddess ISIS.
If you "got out on the wrong side of the bed" this morning, and found "a monkey on your back", or "a skeleton in your closet"; you'd be thinking seriously about turning over a new leaf, or getting your head on straight; even if it took until the cows come home, or hell froze over, wouldn't you?
A king is a ruler because that's a foot long, and a foot goes into a shoe, which is what you do to a fly, and when you fly you're up in the air, and an heir is one who has a fortune, and with one of those you can charge all you like, and a since a king is the one who's in charge; that's why a king is a ruler! This is foolish and cockeyed logic for sure! But don't forget to watch your Ps and Qs.
To say that someone is 'strong as an ox', or 'faster than greased lightning', or 'slower than molasses in January', isn't meant to be taken literally; nor is it said with the intent to deceive. Its all about style, and God has plenty of it.
"The foolishness of God is wiser than men", and "God chose the foolish things of the world to confound the wise", 1Cor1:25.
And in Genesis we find God speaking in the Wisdom of the ages, Dark Sayings.
49:17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. If one is resonating with the higher forces (dan) the stubborn animal nature in you will be controlled
This is the hidden meaning "their minds are blinded"it is as if a veil covers the Old Testament when they read (1 Corinthians 3:13-16).
When Jesus disciples failed to see that hidden meaning in the Old Testament, He called them "fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken" (Luke 24:25).
Maybe there's a squirrel in the woodpile. If the verses quoted herein don't say pretty much the same thing in your own Bible, there's something rotten in Denmark and you ought to look into it, because Victor Borge, with his rapier wit, isn't the only one who delights in WORD-games.
That's Whiskey, Oscar, Romeo, Delta, in military phonetics (formerly William, Oboe, Roger, Dog), and the many lovers of Scrabble, Crosswords, Acrostics, etc., attest to the popularity and of language-wrestling.
Thus we have substantial evidence throughout the Bible to suggest that it is a symbolic book and should not be taken literally. With this evidence, we can then proceed to look at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ as a symbolic story.
So you see the Bible is veiled in mystical words, symbols and allegory, How do I know, because the Bible tells me so. Your local church pastor or priest never told you this, because they are the blind following the blind.
keeping it real, what the heck? Oh well!!!
This is just s a partial list of old or dark or symbolic statements. This language was a staple of the literary of the old days. Everyone loves to use symbolic language it ads color and character the language.
hardest kick you have ever given to a dead horse!
And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcase.
No pork, oh no!! But I like pork god, why?
I am speaking to you in a parable you idiot!
Ok, you don't have to get upset, I get it! a parable, right!
Why didn't you say so?
I did, all throughout the good book, did you actually read it, or did you just go to church like a blind fool?
Ok! my bad, I should have read it, I guess!
I am the lord your god, and my wisdom is greater than yours, that's why I speak in dark speeches, to confound the ignorant fools that don't read, learn and understand. Didn't you ever learn that true knowledge is never given in a straight-forward manner?
Look! and then learn my parable, you fool!
Don't eat pork really means don't consume the mind with or think about lower nature things, like casting blame finding fault, premeditating horrific things to do to your fellow man, pigs are symbols of filth and dirt because they wallow in mud, so symbolically speaking don't eat pork, really means don't consume thoughts of the lower mind. Oink Oink. Get it now?
Got it!!! Thanks god for the epiphany
Don't mention it!
Now we need to go and call some ducks!! Quack Quack Quack
