I sent the following to a chap who wanted to know if I would share my thoughts with him. In case there are those who read these postings who still have not seen what I am saying, I thought I would share with you an email I sent him.
I was for several years just a simple run of the mill born again Christian. According to the Church, all that was necessary to bring about our Spiritual Rebirth was acknowledgement that God sent His only begotten son into the World to take upon Himself our sins and to die in our stead. To 'confess' this with our mouth and believe it in our hearts is all that is necessary to bring about our Spiritual rebirth, (to being 'born again') TOTAL HOGWASH! To make such a commitment, brings about a Spiritual conversion ONLY!
We can only be 'born again', when we realize that the "I" within us, is God, the Father! When we realize that we are God individualized! When we see this, and then make the decision to begin to function AS God, we begin to grow into the likeness of God (the Father), and that likeness is the CHRIST! The Christ is nothing more nor nothing less that the 'person' of God personified! Then we no longer pray 'to' God, we begin to pray (or in other words function) AS Godů AUTOMATICALLY! Another thing we will come to realize, is that in reality, we are Gods by birth! We are born to be Gods! (If the "I" within you IS God, and the "I" within your wife IS God, can your children be any less than 'children of God'?) Children of men, are actually children of God by birth, but who is aware of this? Thus the necessity of the Spiritual Rebirth... the realization that God is the "I" within us! This is what's missing in the consciousness of Humanity, not just in the minds of so called Christians. If this were known, it would revolutionize religious thought throughout the world.
