Annoyance with my own faith

Let me say, I am a believer in Yeshua, Yashua, Jesus, etc, etc.

With that said, its becoming hard for me to say that I am a Christian. I love and serve Yeshua and believe in who he says he is but Christianity and its history has a lot to answer for and Christians have to stop being ignorant to the history of their faith.


[Done fell into the rabbit hole.]

More than anything, Christians need to do better about their study and move beyond just the guidance from the pulpit. Pastors, Preachers, and Priests are to be a guide. You must work out your own salvation. I'm not here to say that I'm a scholar but being skeptical actually has strengthen my faith, to read the scriptures more closely, and seek the mysteries. I'm learning to have an understanding of the so-called pagan traditions of the Church and its connection to what they would call the lesser religions.

We can not ignore as Christians that "our story" has been documented on the walls of Egypt (Kemet) prior to our Bible. We can not ignore that astrology is mentioned and followed in our bibles. We can not ignore that both Moses and Jesus spent many years in Egypt(Kemet) and other cultures believed he traveled through out Africa and Asia during those "missing years" learning and adapting philosophies and skills along the way.

God lives. His Son is alive through his resurrection which we are reminded of daily through the rising of the Sun. A daily resurrection of the Sun should remind us to seek more of Him. We are to resurrect God in us daily. God is not Christianity. Christianity is not God. God is bigger than Christianity. I truly believe that God wants us to love his Son because its a way of living, an approach to life, that we all need. Yeshua wasn't passive with his life nor with scripture. He challenged the men of his day to think deeper and to find the mysteries in the Torah. He was an activist. He sought to change the way we related to God and to one another, in TRUTH.

Let's be honest about our faith. Easter is a pagan season. Let's not get upset when someone says it because its TRUTH. Seek first the Kingdom which includes truth, love, and wisdom.

I chose Christianity because its the way I want to live but I will live it in TRUTH. I will always recognize the origins of my faith and never run from it. I will acknowledge that changes were made to Christianity to maintain order, to maintain power of and over people. This is the Truth. It is the truth that "Christianity" as it is today has many, many falsities. This has nothing to do with my believe in the Creator and his son but I understand how the story has been passed down, has been manipulated and I understand its origins.

Live in the Truth of Yeshua. Love in the Truth of his way. Seek all truth and wisdom and allow it to fall from the Creator through meditation and prayer.


Seek.

Confessions of a Recovering Misogynist" by Kevin Powell

In the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to have very brief conversations with Kevin Powell. Its very interesting to speak with someone with similar passions for community service. As someone who has been very transparent on her blog, I find this essay by Kevin refreshing. I just happen to see this on Facebook as someone posted it many months ago.
Thanks KP.


I AM A SEXIST MALE.

I take no great pride in saying this, I am merely stating a fact. It is not that I was born this way-rather, I was born into this male-dominated society, and consequently, from the very moment I began forming thoughts, they formed in a decidedly male-centered way. My "education" at home with my mother, at school, on my neighborhood playgrounds, and at church, all placed males in the middle of the universe. My digestion of the 1970s American popular culture in the form of television, film, ads, and music only added to my training, so that by as early as age nine or ten I saw females, includ…

I will never, ever, never, ever live in a box.


again.


If I can't be appreciated, celebrated, loved, and befriended with honestly and openly....with no conditions and controls.....then I can't be....for you.

I'm a good friend.  I'm a good person. I deserve good things from good people who really want to celebrate whatever connection I have with them....outside the box.


I'm free to be.

The Ankh

Ankh : The Original Cross



The Ankh is defined as: The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created by Africans in Ancient Egypt.


The Ankh is commonly known to mean life in the language of Ancient Kemet (land of the Blacks) renamed Egypt by the Greeks. It is also a symbol for the power to give and sustain life, the Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water(which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the Gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh. The Egyptian king is often associated with the Ankh also, either in possession of an Ankh (providing life to his people) or being given an Ankh (or stream of Ankhs) by the Gods. This can be seen in the picture of King Senworsert below who is holding two Ankhs to his chest. There are numerous examples that have been found that were made from metal, clay and wood. It is usually worn as …
