To function as a true 'Christian', is to function as the Christ! And we cannot function AS the Christ, until we realize that the "I" within us, is the Father. When we realize that the "I" within us is the Father, we begin to take upon ourselves the likeness of the Father, and that 'likeness', is the Christ. It is more or less an automatic outcome. (If one is sincerely determined to walk as Jesus walked.) AS a man thinketh, so is he/she, is a law. We become as or what we believe ourselves to be. As we think! He, who was known as Jesus, functioned AS the Father. The rest of Humanity for the most part, has functioned as the person their parents created when they named them at their birth. Every child that has ever been born, or ever will be born, is God (the Father) in the infant stage of development. How can I say that? Because I now believe beyond all doubt, that God is the "I", the reality, of every 'man' or 'woman' on Planet Earth! That being the case means only ONE thing and that is this! Every so-called 'Human' child that has ever been born, is a son or daughter of God! Thus the necessity of the Spiritual Rebirth! Jesus said, 'Except we be born again, we cannot see the Kingdom of God' (we cannot function AS the Father.) The concept of the Spiritual Rebirth that has been, and still is being promoted by the Evangelical religions of the World, can NEVER bring about one's Spiritual Rebirth. It can only result in bringing about one's 'Spiritual conversion'. Our Spiritual Rebirth, can only be set in motion through faith in the belief that the "I" within us is God, the Father! Only when we realize that we are actually the Father embodied, can we function AS the Father, as did He who was named Jesus! This realization sets in motion our Spiritual Rebirth! It is in that consciousness that 'born again' 'Christians' are meant to walk!
