Discussion: Religion, the Bible, and Jesus Christ

Religion, whether you have one or not, influences all of our lives, especially in this country.  Thus, understanding religion is important to understanding ourselves and others... which is integral to spiritual development.

 

Within the context of the Cayce readings, we will also delve into teachings from the Bible and from Jesus the Christ.

 

Many people who consider themselves "spiritual seekers" also consider themselves "former Christians".  What are you?  Do you believe the Bible is literal truth?  Are you a Christian, but with some slight modifications?

 

Here are some readings from Cayce on this topic:

 

"More wars, more bloodshed, have been shed over the racial and religious differences than over any other problem. These, too, must go the way of all others; and man must learn--if he will know the peace as promised by Him--that God loveth those who love Him, whether they be called of this or that sect or schism or ism or cult, the Lord is One." [masked]

 

"All religious faiths have their element of truth" 900-59

 

"Science and religion are one when their purposes are one." 5023-2

 

"...The Bible has passed through many hands. Many that would turn that which was written into the meaning that would suit their own purposes, as ye yourselves oft do. But if ye will get the spirit of that written there ye may find it will lead thee to the gates of heaven... read it to be wise. Study it to understand. Live it to know that the Christ walks through same with thee." 262-60

 

And much, much more...

      Yeah... we thought we could handle a meetup and other stuff this weekend, but that didn't work out as planned. The date will change :)

    I could have it tomorrow but without you, it probably wouldn't have much attendance. Hope you find a great car.

      Rebecca was happy getting the same car, which was fortunately easy to find. I think I will need to defer tomorrow's meeting, though, since we're not caught up on weekend errands.

    Sean, If it is any help to you, we could have the next meet-up May 25 at my place as long as you will be there.

    • Sean

      That would definitely be helpful. It might be better to postpone tomorrow's meetup, and just meet on the 25th.

    Where is the meet-up being held?

    May 10, 2014

    • Sean

      Hello! I have had zero time to plan for the meetup. I would have been able to host at my place, but I need to make time to find a car for my wife. Can someone host tomorrow? Unfortunately, I can't guarantee that I'll be there :(

    I understand the distance from Washington to Gettysburg is a bit of a problem for most people in the group.

    Upps my writing went out of control and posted. Any way do you want to meet here?

    May 5, 2014

  • Nancy C.

    We could have it at my apartment. If there are no JHU events the parking isn't too bad on Sunday and I think the meters are free Sunday. There is space on 38th and 39th and in the neighborhoods b me.

    Gettysburg is approximately 85 miles from Washington D.C. and 60 miles from Baltimore. For me, this would be too far to go.

  • Richard B.

    Has a location been chosen for this Sunday's meet-up? If not I can make my place in Gettysburg available. It is a bit of a hike from the Washington area. The place is currently unfurnished so everyone would need to bring a chair. Also, folks would need to pack a lunch. We could sit on the deck if the weather is nice or inside if it is not so nice. Let me know if you are interested in this option.
