Forced Christianity, Eliminated Gnosticism, "Hypothetical" Globalism

Updated on November 21, 2017

Constantine the Terrible

The earliest forms of Christianity were nothing at all like what we have today.

What we call "Christianity" came from the Roman emperor named Constantine and the Council of Nicaea in the year 325 AD, and it is nothing like original Christianity.

Constantine was very evil; he killed his own son, and even boiled his wife alive -- he was just a very nasty wicked evil person who lived a terrible life.

Constantine eventually came to believe he was in need of "salvation" (because of his terrible wickedness), but there was no such thing in original Christianity. In the original forms of Christianity, if you were sinful you died and went to Hell; there was nothing that could be done. "Hell" must have been the fate of nearly everyone in those days.

Constantine feared that his eternal soul was in danger of damnation; so, he began to search for a remedy to this problem, which he found in Gnosticism.

Gnosticism

Gnostics believed in the concept of Gnosis, just as the ancient Egyptians did. They believed we are given the opportunity to learn, mold ourselves, and right our wrongs throughout our entire lives as we progress toward Gnosis (spiritual and intellectual enlightenment, and inner revelation).

Constantine found his "salvation", but soon realized -- as Emperor of Rome -- the "common people" should never be allowed access to any knowledge concerning Gnosis; that might threaten his authority.

He could not allow the "common people" to achieve their own "salvation" through Gnosis as he did; no can't have that, the people must remain dependent on the "official" religion -- The State -- which was administered and presided over by ... Constantine.

The State and The Church

Constantine then brought together the Council of Nicaea; they decided what the "official" religion of Rome would be -- this is where what we know as "Christianity" came from.

This was a blatant attempt, by The State, to remove the knowledge of the true path of "personal salvation" and hide it away from the common people.

After the newly created religion, "Constantine's Christianity", was fully formed it became the mandated State Religion -- all other religions were made illegal.

Constantine then declared war on the Gnostics and attempted to utterly destroy them and their knowledge (Gnosis).

His intent was to keep Gnosticism from ever making its way into the hands, heads, hearts, spirits, and souls of the common people -- he really was a very evil man, just a nasty individual.

All of Gnosticism was completely removed and absolutely separated from the people; the only way anyone was legally allowed to attain spiritual knowledge was from The State (Constantine), which was also The Religion (Constantine). Well, this all worked out very well for ... Constantine -- now didn't it!

This was a deliberate attempt, by Constantine (The State and The Church), to keep knowledge away from the people; this was also, because it was "legally" enforceable by The State, a very good way to force the newly created fake "Christianity" onto the people -- this is the origin and foundations of what we call the "Holy Bible", and "Christianity".

Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible; And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten from the Father before all ages, light from light, true God from true God, begotten not made, of one substance with the Father, through Whom all things came into existence, Who because of us men and because of our salvation came down from the heavens, and was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became man, and was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried, and rose again on the third day according to the Scriptures and ascended to heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father, and will come again with glory to judge living and dead, of Whose kingdom there will be no end; And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and life-giver, Who proceeds from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son is together worshiped and together glorified, Who spoke through the prophets; in one holy Catholic and apostolic Church. We confess one baptism to the remission of sins; we look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen

Gnostic Gospels

The knowledge of the Gnostics would have possibly been completely lost to all of humanity, if the Nag Hammadi Library (Gnostic Gospels) would not have been discovered in Upper Egypt in 1945; this was a very important discovery that was nearly robbed from humanity.

What is it called when you conceal information from people, then make up other stuff that you know isn't true, and then force the people to believe it -- by threat of death?

Without the threat of death, backed by the power of The State -- enforced by the sword -- there might well be no such thing as Christianity, at least nothing like it is today. Christianity is a false religion that has been forced on the people by an evil dictator who lived a very long time ago.

Native Americans

In the 1400s Pope Alexander VI, of the same Roman Church that came from Constantine, attempted the same thing on the native people of the Americas.

Native Americans were told that "the Pope owned the land" that they had occupied for centuries.

They were forced off the land -- in the name of "God" -- and "Constantine's Christianity" was imposed onto them, just as it was the Gnostics.

Christianity was not the religion of the Native Americans, but they were expected to accept it anyway -- by force if there was any resistance.

Something we might want to start asking: what kind of "God" would do such a thing?

“When your people came to our land, it was not with open arms, but with Bibles and guns and disease. You took our land. You killed us with your guns and disease, then had the arrogance to call us godless savages. If there is a Heaven and it is filled with Christians, then Hell is the place for me.” -Anonymous

Africans

The same is true for the people of Africa; upon being abducted, and forced into America, they were then further forced (by the whip) to accept Christianity -- there was no choice in this matter. Christianity was forced onto them, by the very people who enslaved them in the first place. Christianity was not the religion of the people who were taken from Africa -- it was forced on them.

As a direct result, black people all over America believe the false religion that was created so long ago by the evil Constantine of Rome, and it was intentionally created specifically to keep the truth and the people separated.

Why would you continue to accept a religion that was forced on you by the same people who enslaved your ancestors long ago?

What an absolute nightmare this whole story is; it is abuse and manipulation to an extreme degree -- of not just Africans, Gnostics, and Native Americans, but of the whole human race. Christianity, and indeed all religions, have been used to abuse all of us; everyone has been abused by the religions on this planet.

Again, what kind of "God" would this be the workings of? This is upside down, and obviously so, if anything ever has been. Just who is this so-called "God" that has been the apparent motivation behind such abuse and inhumane treatment of humanity? Are we talking about some kind of loving forgiving God here? Obviously not, the suggestion of anything of the sort is insane.

"The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." - Charles Baudelaire
"The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." - Charles Baudelaire

Physicality is Illusory

"The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." is a quote attributed to Charles Baudelaire, a French poet from the 1800s; the Gnostics might have said, "The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he was God."

According to the Gnostic Gospels, Jehovah and Yahweh were not God at all -- they were a demon called the Demiurge -- Lucifer. They say that Lucifer fell from the fullness of the nonphysical realms and fell into "matter", of which he created the "physical" realm.

This would mean that every part of the "physical-five-sense-reality" ("all that exists", according to materialistic science) is a creation of Lucifer, the Demiurge. The human physical body, the brain, the planet, the entire Universe, and all the so-called "laws of physics" -- all created by the Devil.

The Gnostics believed that everything -- everything -- that we call "physical" is a direct creation of evil; therefore, everything "physical" is evil. The Gnostic Gospels say that the process of Gnosis is to discover the "divine spark" (divine spark = Christ) that has been enslaved and imprisoned within physicality by the material creation of the Demiurge; the only means of escaping the "physical" realm is through Gnosis.

The Gnostics believed that the nonphysical realm is the "true reality", and that what we think of as physical reality is not real; they believed "physicality" is "only an illusion".

Take Responsibility

Gnostics believed that "God" (eternal infinite all-knowing consciousness) does not get jealous, angry, and filled with rage -- as does the so-called "God" of the Old Testament of the Holy Bible. According to Gnostic belief, the "God" of the Bible is not God at all, but a "demon" -- that "fell to Earth" and only wants to dominate, enslave, and control the entire human race.

The Gnostic Gospels (Nag Hammadi Library) indicate that the Bible is completely inverted, backwards, and upside down in the way it portrays things. Gnostics believed that no one can take responsibility for mistakes someone else made, or "die for the sins" of another person; they believed we have to each individually pay for our own sins, correct our own mistakes, and take responsibility for our own lives.

No "Get Out of Jail Free" card in Gnosticism like there is in the Holy Bible -- and in the massive fraud called "Christianity", which was forced on the people by threat of death. No wonder no one wants to "take responsibility" for their actions.

Lucifer is the God of the Bible

According to Gnostic belief, the so-called "holy" Bible has everything backwards; the story about the serpent tempting Eve to eat from the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil" is a good example.

From the Gnostic point of view, the serpent was actually the "good guy"; he wanted Eve (the human race) to know the difference between good and evil. The serpent is who wanted humanity to be aware of "right and wrong" -- so we could learn to "take responsibility" for our actions.

If we cannot understand when we have wronged someone, how can we apologize? If we cannot understand that we have treated another person poorly, how can we feel remorse for our inappropriate behavior? If there was no sense of "right and wrong", how would we ever be able to even conceive of the idea that we have made a mistake? How would we ever correct mistakes, if we were incapable of realizing any mistakes were made?

If there was no knowledge of "good and evil", we could just do whatever we wanted -- we could impose our will onto others with no consequences, and without comprehending it was wrong to do so. It is not OK to impose our will onto other people; with exceptions only to survival, self-defense, and in the act of defending those who are incapable of defending themselves.

If there was no sense of morality (which is what the "God" of the Old Testament seems to have wanted for humanity), we could murder, rape, abuse, manipulate, lie, steal, cheat -- and anything else you can think of -- and never realize it was wrong or bad to do any of it. The "tree of the knowledge of good and evil" could just as easily have been called the "tree of morality". If there was no morality on Earth, it seems that chaos and mayhem would be all there is; no one would know it was bad or good to do anything -- seems like some of our public officials, politicians, and so-called "authorities" need to have a few bites from this tree; apparently they didn't get any when Eve was handing out the apples.

If no one had any moral compass at all, people could just do whatever they wanted -- to everyone and everything -- and there would be no sense that anything was wrong with any of it. Child abuse, animal torture, mass murder, genocide, slavery -- anything goes.

On the other side, no one would know that peace, love, kindness, empathy, and compassion were good -- imagine a world where people, not only did not know "bad", but also did not know "good". Imagine a world absent even one person who understood what it meant to intentionally put "good" things into the world -- what a nightmare that would be.

If the serpent had not tempted Eve in the Garden, what might have become of humanity? Who was the "good guy" and the "bad guy" of the Bible? Was the "God" of the Old Testament (who wanted humanity ignorant of right and wrong) the "good guy", or was that just the "Devil" -- who had convinced the world he was "God"?

According to Gnostic belief, the so-called "God" of the Bible is, in reality, Lucifer -- the Devil (Demiurge). They say the Bible is completely backwards, opposite of reality, and that Lucifer (the serpent in the garden) is actually who we should be referring to as "God" -- maybe they were correct.

"Anyone who attempts to construe a personal view of God which conflicts with church dogma must be burned without pity." - Pope Innocent III
"Anyone who attempts to construe a personal view of God which conflicts with church dogma must be burned without pity." - Pope Innocent III

Cathars

In the late 1100s, the Cathars of France began to become very powerful; they were the first people who had the power and influence to rival Rome, and they represented a reemergence of Gnosticism.

The Cathars believed in equality and literacy, and they taught people to seek salvation and enlightenment on their own terms instead of through a priest of The State. They made paper and taught people how to read and write. As if all this was not already enough to offend the Roman Church, the Cathars also believed -- and taught the "common people" -- that the Pope was the "Devil on Earth".

The Pope (Pope Innocent III) finally had enough; he formed a mighty army to destroy the Cathars (Gnostics) -- here we go again. The Pope of Rome then proceeded another attempt to "totally eliminate" all knowledge of Gnosis, and utterly wipe it from the face of the Earth by force -- by the sword.

The attack on the Cathars was so ruthless that when soldiers could not distinguish between Catholics and Cathars, they were told to "kill everyone" and that "God would sort it out". These attacks were so brutal that more than 1,000 human beings were burned at the stake during what has been termed the "Albigensian Crusade"; thousands more were indiscriminately slaughtered in the most barbaric brutality -- they were trying to kill every single one of them, and eliminate any trace that they ever existed in the first place.

What the Pope attempted to do is what today we would call "genocide", and rightfully so too; they made every attempt to completely eliminate and utterly destroy the Cathars, and all of the knowledge they possessed.

The Albigensian Crusade, or the Cathar Crusade, was one of the most brutal things "in the name of God" that has ever happened on our planet -- all in an attempt to keep hidden any knowledge other than the Roman form of fake Christianity that had been imagined into existence by Constantine and his pathetic Council of Nicaea, which was then forced by threat of violence and death onto the people.

The Bible is an Inversion of Truth

This is ridiculous and unacceptable, but it is how Christianity has come to us -- by brutality and force, and all in the name of "God". Imagine the horror of actually burning another human being alive -- imagine that; this would be beyond any words to describe, just horrible. What kind of person would do that? What kind of "God" would have someone do that?

The only "God" that would be capable of such behavior is the one the Gnostics called the "Demiurge". If the Gnostics were correct in their belief, that the Bible was an inversion of truth, then how would we expect that to express itself? It would do so exactly as it has -- genocide, in the name of what was only called "God" -- but was really Lucifer.

The Roman Church really is the very expression of evil on this planet, just as the Gnostics said it was. If you have any doubt of this, have a look at the massive widespread grotesque scale of child abuse coming from the Catholic Church (especially the Vatican), then come back and talk about the amazing workings of "God" -- no, that's the Devil, just as the Gnostics said it was.

Symbols of Satanism

Satanic Religions

Rabbis, priests, and mullahs all worship the same "Yahweh", and they all insert themselves between the people and God.

They tell us how to do our spirituality, how to interact with God, and what we must do to avoid eternal damnation.

In ancient times, you either did things how they said, or you got burned at the stake; even in modern times, in some places you will be killed if you do not obey the demands of the religious authorities. In places like that, people are not permitted to get divine revelation directly from God -- only "they" can do that.

Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have divided the world massively, and are at the very core of the most serious problems facing our world today; they are hateful, violent, and inhumane religions.

Each religion believes that its "truth" is the only truth; its "God" is the only God. If you don't obey their every demand, horrible punishment is justly due to you in this life, in the afterlife, or even both.

"Do what we say, and you won't get hurt!" Who says that? God? Is that God? Sounds more like a terrorist or hostage taker; they are who say things like that, not God.

These religions (prisons for the mind) have been devastating to the whole of humanity, and they all come from the same source -- the worship of what the Gnostics call the Demiurge.

These religions are not expressions of "God"; they are an expression of a demonic entity known as Lucifer -- these religions are forms of Satanism. That's right, Christianity is a form of Satanism!

Remember how the Bible talks about Satan being the "deceiver"? Yes? Well good then, stop being deceived by these Satanic religions.

Christians were still burning people at the stake in the 1700s, Catholics ("Christians") still abuse children, Muslims still stone women in the streets, and Jews are still committing genocide.

All of these religions come from the same place -- and they worship the same evil "God". Satan, Lucifer, Demiurge, Yahweh, Jehovah -- this is all the same thing; evil, pure evil, that's what it is.

Don't think so? Just look at what they do and how they act ... is that GOD? Well? Is it??

"There's a reason for this, there's a reason education sucks, and it's the same reason it will never ever ever be fixed. It's never going to get any better. Don't look for it. Be happy with what you've got... because the owners of this country don’t want that. I'm talking about the real owners now... the real owners. The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests." - George Carlin

Control

The "State" is no different, it is only another expression of the same thing. Governments are not here to do what you think they are; they are not here to protect you, care for you, love you, or look out for your best interests. That is not even remotely why they are here.

The word govern means "to control"; the word ment means "mind". Therefore, "govern-ment" means to control your mind, and isn't that exactly what they do?

Politicians talk about the "hearts and minds of the people" all the time in relation to whatever they are trying to do. It is because they have to control your perception of reality, that's why they need to influence the "hearts and minds" of the people. Governments (The State) are not here to do anything other than control you, and obviously, they have the same intent and the same "master" as all the religions do.

It wasn't that long ago when there was no "separation of church and state"; The State was The Religion, and The Religion was The State. In some ways it still is like that; The State imposes its beliefs (religion) onto the people -- same thing. The State does not want people to be independent, educated, or self-sufficient. The State also does not want you to come up with your own morals, ways to live, and codes of conduct. The State wants to be who decides and controls all of that -- and they want to then impose their ideas onto the people; this is no different than the religions.

This should really come as no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention; the governments of the world have been imposed onto the people in the identical fashion as the religions have been. The State has been forced on us by the very same people who have forced our religions on us. The State is just another expression of the same Demiurge the Gnostics warned of.

Look, it is no different: "Accept our religion (laws), or be punished and killed; accept our laws (religion) or be punished and killed." It is the same thing, because it comes from the same source -- our governments and our religions are expressions of the Demiurge; and according to the Gnostics, since they are an expression of the Demiurge, they must be and do evil. And just how do we see The State (doesn't matter which "government"; they are all "The State") expressing itself all over the world? Fear, hatred, suspicion, division, manipulation, abuse, bloodshed, violence, murder -- and war; that is all we ever get from The State, but The State always gets whatever it wants from us.

They foment unnecessary division (divide and rule) and hate through false patriotism that people are brainwashed into. Why should we be drawn to others simply based on the idea that we are on the same landmass? No, we should be drawn to others based on similar ideas and concepts, not our physical locations.

There is nothing wrong with loving ones country, but when it becomes destructive to other people who are on the same planet it has just gone too far; if patriotism is the result of brainwashing and manipulation, it can be nothing other than wrong -- that is true no matter how much "you love your country". You can love your country without loving your government; the land has sustained you all the days of your life, nothing wrong with loving that -- especially if you are a farmer or someone who works directly with the "land".

However it goes, "The State" and "The Church" do the same things, act in the same ways, and are both expressions of the same Demiurge (Lucifer, Satan, Yahweh, Jehovah -- "GOD" -- whatever you call it makes no difference; it is the same thing). The Church (all religions) and The State (all governments) are expressions of a singular source and have been forced equally onto all of us. These evil demonic expressions of Satan (The Church and The State) are never going to take us anywhere, except straight to Hell; which is exactly what they have been designed to do, by their designer -- Satan. All of this, going as far into the history of The State and The Church as we can go, it has always and only been for one purpose -- control.

Honestly, in its fullness, it looks exactly as it would if aliens invaded the planet and enslaved humanity. Many people believe that to be true, but it is a story for another day.

The System

Whoever "they" are, Church and State (the powers that be) have always deliberately and blatantly attempted to keep the human race isolated from the true knowledge that can connect us to consciousness (which is what we really are) -- and set us free. Turns out that all of this is actually about just one thing: freedom.

We are an enslaved species, an imprisoned planet, held captive by The Church and The State ("science" and "money" included) which are all expressions of what the Gnostics called the Demiurge. Therefore, the Demiurge (Lucifer, Satan, Devil, Jehovah, Yahweh, God) is the actual enslaver; Church and State are only an expression of it. The Church and The State are there to keep you in line, but they are not the actual enslaver -- the Demiurge is the true enslaver.

This Demiurge does not want humanity to be educated, intelligent, awake, and aware of what is happening. The System (Church + State + Science + Money = "The System"), created and controlled by the Demiurge, does not want humanity to realize the truth -- because the truth sets you free. Are you free? You can be, if you know the truth, but not until.

The System does not want the human race to ever realize there is a reality beyond what "they" say there is; they do not want you to realize that you can think independently, and do as you see fit with your life. The whole thing is about control; they do not want you to step outside of the reality that "they" say is "real".

What are you going to do about it?

We accept all of this, mostly because we were born into it. If this kind of thing started today, we wouldn't stand for it; that's what we think anyway.

Imagine if someone came up with a new religion, just as Constantine did. Hypothetically now, we will call this new religion "Globalism", and believers of the new religion will be called "Globalists".

Just to keep things simple, we will say that the new religion of "Globalism" consists of a religious belief that the world needs to have only one government, a "World Government". Maybe the Globalists will believe, in this new religion, that the World Government must have a "World Army" to enforce "World Policy". Perhaps they believe that a single "World Currency" is necessary, and that everyone should be "micro-chipped" for a variety of purposes.

Let's say that Globalists also believe, in our strictly "hypothetical" situation, that population control is essential to the survival of the planet -- to protect the planet from the destructive actions and behaviors of the terrible humans.

"Protecting the planet" would be a main theme of this new religion, which of course is a good idea because we do need the planet to ensure our own survival. However, if these ideas are based on lies, deception, and manipulation, in an attempt to control the minds of the people (just like they have always done) then this is not good at all. In fact, it would be quite evil, but we should expect nothing less considering the source.

In "reality", rather than in our "hypothetical" situation, the Club of Rome is the origin of using "environmental issues" to manipulate the people.

Back to our "purely hypothetical" situation, let's now say that a fundamental part of the new religion called Globalism is a mandatory belief that humans have caused terrible damage to the planet, and that they must strive all the days of their lives to completely eliminate CO2 from the world. This would certainly be a tragedy -- not only to all life on Earth -- but also to the psychological, mental, and emotional health of the Globalists themselves.

It would be very sad really, because the human body produces CO2 -- just by staying alive. This is serious business though, because our "hypothetical" religion of Globalism would mandate the belief that humans are inherently bad -- sinful -- as in "original sin", but of course there is no such thing. A psychological imbalance can be the only result of such beliefs, because their very own physical body produces the terrible CO2 that they must avoid at all cost; it is very easy to see how guilt, self-hatred, and a multitude of other extremely negative effects can be generated by such beliefs. These types of thought patterns can actually be quite dangerous and very destructive to everyone involved, and could very easily lead to human beings treating other human beings in absolutely horrible ways -- this is a direct pathway to the eventual hating of humanity. Imagine hating your own species, but believing it is healthy to do so -- mental illness.

This new religion called "Globalism" sounds pretty ridiculous, doesn't it? Well, only on one hand, because come to think of it ... uhm ... well, maybe not that ridiculous.

A whole lot of people might just easily go along with it, then it would be much easier to force it on the rest of us. Now imagine that, for whatever reason, this religion of "Globalism" became made mandatory by law, by threat of force -- big trouble.

What if "they" would kill you if you did not comply with this new religion, just as they did in Rome during the days of Constantine? What would you do? Would you stand for it? Of course not, right? That is at least what we all like to say, but we also often think we are much braver than we actually are.

Isn't that exactly what we are allowing though? Are we not seeing a cleverly introduced, and very slowly implemented, State and Church sanctioned new "religion" that one day could very easily be made mandatory by law and backed by the threat of imprisonment or death? Isn't that exactly what we are watching -- and literally allowing to happen right in front of our faces, and isn't that what is actually taking place right before our very eyes?

If history tells us anything, we better at least consider it as a possibility; "they" have done it before, what makes us think they won't ever do it again?

We tend to think, in all of our modern superiority, that we would never fall for things that people in ancient times fell for, but aren't we? Aren't we just doing the same thing? We think we are so much smarter than those who lived so long ago, but are we really? Might we be every bit as naive, ignorant, and gullible, or even more so than they were? From some perspectives, we are.

The vast majority of people, all over the world, are still devout believers in religions that have been forced on them by our enslavers. Everyone around the world accepts governments, which have also been forced on humanity by our enslavers. The version of reality that is made mandatory in the minds of children is just mass brainwashing and indoctrination that is cleverly disguised and then called "education", but it too is forced upon us by our enslavers. Our enslavers have also forced upon us the monetary and economic systems of the world, which have only served to further enslave us.

You wouldn't stand for it if they "did something like that today" though, would you? ... Aren't you though? Aren't we all?

If we never do anything about it, nothing will ever be done about it. What are you going to do about it? As the old saying goes, "What you allow is what will continue."

What will you allow to continue?
