What Your Church Doesn't Want You to Know

The Bible is a document that is often misunderstood, but there are ways to open its secrets to get the real meaning.

Moses Maimonides wrote a commentary on the Bible called "Guide for the Perplexed". In it he makes the case that the Bible is a coded text that is part sky lore. part allegory and part history. We have found much of the history and some of it is supri

The Dialectical Materialist Approach to the Bible

The Bible is far different from what your church would like you to think. It is this misinformation that is responsible for people being turned off from the Bible and what was behind the alienation of the left therefrom. The Bible has been made into a parody of what it really about. We have been given a Disney World fantasy view of God, the cosmos, world, mankind and reality. Many have come to believe that the ancients were either stoned on some wild drugs or were complete idiots. Though the former is somewhat true when one considers mushroom cults, the later is definitely false. What is true, is that the common person today is deliberately kept at the level of an infant concerning knowledge of many things as this makes them easier to control. However, this comes at a cost to the individual who feels lost and alienated but is also at a loss to explain why they feel that way. Substitutes are offered to placate this sense and many people will follow these for a while unless they come to a better sense.

Because the real message has been kept from the people, Marxists have based their political program on a platform that is anti-religion and anti-Bible, based on the very real nonsense promulgated as the truth. As people were placated by phantasms and empty promises, it is little wonder that Marx stated that “religion is the opiate of the masses” as it was used to sedate them in a world of greedy exploitation run by pirates and hooligans pretending to be good upstanding citizens. Many people have been tricked into accepting a better lot in the afterlife of heaven if they warrant it by accepting torment in the earthly life. And yet, almost every Christian is familiar with and prays “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on Earth as it is in HeavenMatthew 6:10, as part of the Lord's Prayer given by Jesus. Here we see a call for establishing a kingdom of righteousness on earth as it is in the perfect heaven of God's residence, to which Christians are to trust Jesus to take them their by rapture or some other process. But most people are apparently oblivious of the real meaning of this statement made by Jesus; their accepted Savior. Should they have taken Jesus at his literal word, they would have allied with the Marxists and led them into the better world instead of acting in such a manner that atheism appeared the better path and Marxists instead provided the leadership.

We will prove that the Bible is sensible, materialistic in foundation, dialectic and based on a sound natural fact. What has thrown many into confusion, is the symbolism and the layers of obscurantism placed there by false leaders, false priests and self serving parasites parading as “God's own representatives who know better than most; that are kept in ignorance. Worse, since the Bible became readily available, changes were deliberately made for political ends that obscured and confused the original. There are many translations out there that differ from the original and these can be pointed out and the culprits exposed. The Bible is a social document, filled with sky lore prognostication, poetry, allegorical symbols and wisdom. The Bible has 67 writers, written over thousands of years and is well integrated, whereas Das Kapital and other writings by Marx, great as they are, have but a single author written over decades. Indeed, Karl Marx got some of his inspiration from the social gospel of the Bible; something not widely known. Dialectical Materialism also has its inspiration from the ancients. The Koran also has but a single author and these aforementioned books should be used in conjunction with the Bible. We live in an age of alienation and part of what we are attempting here is to strip away that alienation. There are in effect, two books of God, one the Bible and the other, nature. Of the two, nature must take precedence! The reason for this will become plain as nature is non-ambiguous and straightforward, whereas writing is subject to interpretation and manipulation.

Moses Maimonides stated in the Guide for the Perplexed stated the following, which is appropriate for today;

"The theory that imagination was an essential element in prophecy is supported by the fact that figurative speech predominates in the prophetical writings, which abound in figures, hyperbolical expressions and allegories. The symbolical acts which are described in connexion with the visions of the prophets, such as the translation of Ezekiel from Babylon to Jerusalem (Ez. viii. 3), Isaiah's walking about naked and barefoot (Isaiah. xx. a), Jacob's wrestling with the angel (Genesis. xxxii. 17 sqq.), and the speaking of Balaam's ass (Numbers. xxii.28), had no positive reality (emphasis ours) . The prophets, employing an elliptical style, frequently omitted to state that a Certain event related by them was part of a vision or a dream. In consequence of such elliptical speech events are described in the Bible as coming directly from God, although they simply are the effect of the ordinary laws of nature, (emphasis ours) and as such depend on the will of God. Such passages cannot be misunderstood when it is borne in mind that every event and every natural phenomenon can for its origin be traced to the Primal Cause. In this sense the prophets employ such phrases as the following "And I will command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it" (Isaiah. v. 6); "I have also called my mighty men." pp-63

The foregoing admits that many impossible events described in the Bible are allegories, too fantastic to be real and therefore are symbolic. Such symbolism can be seen either as a dream like state or as figurative to describe something that is real, material, following the laws of nature and the dialectical materialist approach. What we are going to look at hereinafter is based on the dialectical materialist method to clarify what is actually being described. Then as now, people had to disguise their meanings to avoid the oppression of the state and to be able to get their message through the heavy censorship of the period. There is little difference as to how the state controls everyone then as now except by methodology. Today, the state employs the same basic techniques, such as pain compliance, torture and terror. This was done differently than is done now, but the ends are the same. In the days of Copernicus, it was the Inquisition that had to be avoided. In the days of Freud and Einstein, it was the Gestapo and Nazis. Today it is the furtive cabal of capitalism and the Friedman shock doctrine that does the dirty work of the terror state.

We will show that the ancients were perhaps as aware if not more so, of the laws of nature and that these understandings were not given to everyone for similar purposes that they are censured from the general public today. This is still true! The ancients of knowledge understood the interrelation of celestial events to ones on earth. The whole of the Bible was a coded message containing this information and describes the state and mankind's psychology, the nature of the state, our supportive social obligations to one another, great cycles of time which includes great natural catastrophes and the symbolism used to describe the physical laws of nature. Impossible things mean something quite real and physical once we peel away the symbol and expose the real.

We will also show how the state and church has deliberately obscured the message of the Bible by adding and taking away words, inflections of meaning and created misunderstanding with a campaign of misinformation and resulting confusion. This has as part of its object, alienation, dumbing down and division of the people for purposes of control. In order to cut through all the accumulated obscurantism, we will have to open ancient sources, which are available, in order to get a better understanding. We will also be looking at sky lore and what these are symbolic of in the material parallel of the physical world.

In order to get the dialectical materialist understanding, you are going to have to break with all preconceived notions that you may hold sacred, but are based on nothing more than subjectivity, faith in the absurd and irrational logic, or emotionalism. We challenge you to verify everything hereinafter, independently, to establish for yourself, the veracity of what is stated. That said, we begin with one of the keys to understanding the Bible and work from there.

Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory ( allhgoroumena [Greek] things of a symbolic drama) : for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.” Galatians 4:21-27 (King James Version)

This basic statement refers to the story of Abraham in the Old Testament in Genesis 16 and 17 and two sons by two women. The basic symbol is of bondage and freedom, what Hegel would call necessity and freedom. In other words, in order to have freedom, necessity has to be fulfilled first. In ancient Judaism, there is the Mosaic law which comes later in Exodus, so the bondage here is of slavery to necessity and not the law of Moses, which comes later, though this is linked in the above quote. In a society that functions via slavery, the people under bondage to slavery were responsible by force to take care of the necessity of their masters as well as their own in the protocol of looking after the master first and then their own needs. The master then obtained freedom because the slave took care of the necessity of the master, such as doing the heavy work, the gathering and preparation of food and even to bear children for the master at the master's whim. We have here the prototype of patriarchy, where women serve the man as a reproductive slave as the man can not bear children of himself, in the production of the inheriting generation to follow. However, as he is in the master position in patriarchal society, he gets the freedom to have children by the “free woman” as well as the “slave woman” so there is a double symbol of slavery, that is, a slave of a slave as the slave woman was subordinate to the free woman in the hierarchy as well as to the man in a caste like structure. This is made clear in the Genesis narrative. Further, Abraham was not always called by that name, but changed after his vision of God. The narrative continues with a commitment with the sign and seal of circumcision.

The quote in Galatians exposes that the story of Abram-Abraham and his wife tells us that it is allegory for a change that occurred at that time; a split as it were in society into two classes, the serving and the served; master and slave; and further that this is “justified” because of a vision of God. Abraham was old at the time of siring children and thought that the vision was laughable as his wife was also old and barren; into menopause. Abraham ultimately had sons from both women according to the allegory. This is thus also a story of polygamy, where the patriarch can have children from multiple women, this seemingly justified by God. As a person with more than one “wife” with his actual wife's consent, we see the form of a powerful man who could have multiple wives, while others went without. This story being an allegory, tells us that other seemingly impossible events and descriptions are also allegory where the symbol means something else in the physical cosmos and world.
