The Knowledge (or Gnosis) of Christ presents deeper insights and teachings that are necessary to bring the Church to maturity. Christ entrusted this wisdom to an inner circle of disciples, as they were able to receive it. However, for those strongly influenced by the religion of the past these new teachings often became very troublesome, when in the wrong hands. The epistles are full of admonitions toward and against those who used these insights to exalt themselves over other believers, to exercise a lack of love, and even to justify hurtful libertine behavior. As these deeper ideas resurface, and are embraced by some again today, a balanced approach is needed: One that recognizes their value, but also knows how to hold the truth with the love that never fails.

Eternal Vantage Point: God's
view is eternal, and so we try
thinking outside time. With divine insight we may discover that what we
look forward to has already
come, but without such vision we may not recognize it. There
are hints of such a divine eternal worldview within scripture freeing
us from the fetters of time and cultural restraints, but in the
darkness of the
carnal mind, men do not see it.
Perceiving the promises of scripture as already fulfilled may be one
step toward seeing reality from a divine eternal perspective, as God
sees it. May our eyes be opened.

Aionios is just a simple linguistic study. I wish to take the reader so much deeper, to see the bigger picture: The will of God, the Mystery of Christ, and The Gospel of Christ! God willing... we will do this.
Jesus is Joy for Everyone is a simple tract using scripture to espouse The Restoration of All Things.

Universalist Texts concisely conveys simple thoughts from Christian Universalists of previous centuries.
Aaron writes, "There are two categories of men with two different destinations (elect and sons of perdition). Only God knows for sure who they are."
Dean comments, "Such theological discussions may have their place. But surely, the saints must tire of this debate. Is it time to change our focus? When I look at Christ I see what God is like. I see One who loved sinners, who chastised the over confident, a God who justifies the ungodly, and judges the self-righteous." God willing, let us move on to perfection.
Let's Focus on the Christ and his work. Revel in the wonder of his love and grace. Enjoy these simple words.
We are all… One. Three succinct scriptural quotes summarize my personal experience, perspective, and belief in Oneness. Christ is all, and in all. God as All in All. And He that is joined unto the Lord is One Spirit. Together they say to me that the Christ is all, and that God is all, and that We are all… One.
Jesus is the Light that Enlightens every man. Rather than a doctrine to be expounded, Oneness is a revelation to be experienced.
This message of Oneness is not new, but visible throughout the pages of the New Testament. It is The Knowledge of Universal Oneness that is the basis of the scriptural appeal to love one another throughout the scripture. There is a knowing what we know, and that we know deep inside. Without this foundational revelation, and it is a revelation, those who labour, labour in vain. May we finally see the oneness of the body that we may grow strong and into maturity.
In such a worldview there is only One Universal and Cosmic Body: The body of Christ. This Christ is and becomes a revelation of oneness. When the Reunified Body of Christ is seen and experienced, the mind darkened by the torment of dualism is filled with light. There is only ONE body, the kingdom of God’s dear son, for truly, truly, Christ is all, and in all.
Love is the glue that holds the body together so that we can grow together into a Mature Perfect Man. We are all learning to live in love, and be at Peace with one another.

within Scripture and the Gospel of Thomas for those who would would be
perfect, and for those who would take up the cross to follow Christ in
to us in many ways. Christ does not leave his disciples
comfortless, but returns to them. Our philosophical outlook of the
future is optimistic. We are a spiritually minded people, now looking
for divine intervention, personally and corporately, with God
working out his plan for all creation, through the revelation of Christ
within us, and through a manifestation of the sons of God.
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and Saviour of the
world. This is my confession of faith. This is the statement
am most comfortable with. I wish my profession of faith could
kept this simple.
Belief systems that create divisions and barriers in the body of Christ in an attempt to impose beliefs, or to exclude other Christians of differing belief are often reprehensible, and by definition heretical. Ruling over others, dictating to them, or controlling beliefs is not the way of Christ.
Becoming Non-creedal: I have little interest in dogmatic organizational professions. Though we can learn from others, creeds can never fully represent all revelation and may limit or confine our perceptions of truth. I have found that if we are free from the confines of the theological boundaries other people and organizations would place on us, then we can truly be open to the deeper revelations God would entrust to us. If our heart is willing, we will encounter, and be enabled to embrace the truth when it is given.
As our heart enlarges and our understanding deepens, we will be willing to Let Go of the Chains that Bind Us, and we will move from glory to glory.
The Gospel of Christ
The Gospel of Thomas is the foundational teaching of Jesus used by the apostles as the basis of their New Testament writings and ministry. This non-canonical Gospel of Thomas is a must read! The prologue begins:
These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.
(1) And he said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."
(2) Jesus said, "Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All."
This is the gospel of the Kingdom. It is the message of the Cross. Continue reading The Gospel of Thomas. It is not an easy read, but for the earnest seeker and diligent student of the word the effort may be extremely worthwhile.

“key” word. Hidden within this Coptic word for "cross" is an

Joint Body refers
to the body of Christ (Ephesians 2:16). The author appears to
have coined this new word to express this
revolutionary new oneness and unity between Jews and Gentiles that is
created in Christ Jesus (2:13-22). The Gentiles are joint-heirs and
joint-body and joint-partakers in the promise in Christ Jesus through
The Joint Body Chiasm in Thomas reveals in chart form the left and the right of two essential chiastic structures in Thomas. There is a male structure (the Gentiles) and a female structure (the Jews) and they are joined together in holy matrimony. This is a great mystery illustrating the complete reunification of the all. It is presented here for the diligent student looking for treasures.

She-camel is a reminder that the gates of heaven, and the entrance to

Will Hell Eventually be Empty? Examining the teachings of the Quran, this article asks the question: For how long will Almighty Allah punish some of His creation? It concludes that the most blind of sinners will enter the Garden when the Camel goeth through the needle's eye. Surah 7:40 The promise and hope of Universal Salvation is maintained. As this reference in the gospels declares, nothing is impossible for Allah. Matthew 19:24-26. Praise be to God, Lord of the worlds. The Compassionate, the Merciful.
The Injeel or "The Original Gospel of Christ" is repeatedly mentioned in the Holy Quran. Muslims believe this original Gospel (of Jesus) to have been... lost," The Gospel in Islam - Wikipedia. Now is the time to consider new possibilities. The Gospel of Thomas was found in Egypt in 1945. Both Thomas and The Quran share 114 divisions. Aligning saying to surah, both books share extensive similarities in thought, word, and rhetoric. Examine The Injeel-Quran Key Word Connections. These two holy writings interpret each Other.
