The Gospel of Jesus

Updated on March 30, 2018

The Golden Rule appears in every major religion. It is really all we need.

The Gospel of Jesus

"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, thy soul, and thy body, and thy neighbor as thyself."

This summarizes the entire gospel and all the rest of the Bible is nothing but an explanation of that one sentence. There is no need for seminaries, church buildings or a priesthood. Live that one sentence.

We must analyze first our relationship to God, as it manifests itself in our relationship to our fellow man. We must set a high Ideal. The Ideal is that God is good, completely good and always has been.

All stories which depict God with negative human emotions such as being: Jealous, Vengeful or Wrathful is Blaspheme. Any story which depicts God as a Warrior or Killer is Blaspheme. Real the Bible with this in mind.

We must love our neighbor as ourselves because we are all connected to one another.

The Soul

What is the soul? It is the God-Force in the weakest of our brethren, in the lowest of our fellow men. When we do an unkindness to another individual we do not hurt the individual, but we hurt God and ourselves. When do we dishonor God? When we do an unkindness or say an unkind word about our fellow man!

What will make us aware of the soul? When we become God-minded and conscious of the fact that we are our brother's keeper. What was the excuse of the first man who did a wrong to another? Am I my brother's keeper? Many of us try to hide behind something to prevent our own conscience from hurting and say, "Well, I don't have to worry about that; that's his job." If he is a living being that is wandering or disturbed, then it is our job. Help him when we come in contact with him, if we want to know God at all.

A young Edgar Cayce

Edgar Cayce

How do we know God or the Soul or the afterlife actually exist? Turn to the story of Edgar Cayce. He was a psychic who gave about 12,000 health readings and about 2,000 Life readings. He got his information from a source beyond the five senses.

The subject of Edgar Cayce and his psychic Readings has been dealt with in previous papers such as, "My Telepathic Experiences," and "Cures from, "There is a River," by Thomas Sugrue." The reader is urged to read these two articles before reading this one.

No man has a good enough memory to be a consistently good liar or fabricator of tales without being bogged down eventually in a sheer weight of detail. Consider then the hundreds of people that Cayce gave Life readings for, along with their almost invariable inter-relationships during various past lives with others who also had Life readings. In later readings Cayce would often add to the story, or the relationship, but he never veered from is original statements regarding the inter-involvement of several members of a family throughout previous periods where two or more had incarnated at the same time, and therein had been personally involved with one another. For Cayce to have fabricated all of these by reason of an active imagination or some other unknown source defies our logic and intellect. Certainly from somewhere he was picking up rather detailed personal information, neatly threading it together and reciting it forth, mostly without hesitation, as fast as a stenographer could take it down in shorthand.

The individuals who received Readings seem generally agreed that the information that was given them somehow repeatedly struck an inner chord of awareness or understanding of themselves as if that Reading had been truly given just for them.

Cayce never in all those years gave a reading, physical or otherwise, for a person who didn't exist. A common ploy by investigators was to submit a fictitious name or set of facts to a psychic such as Cayce. This was apparently attempted on various occasions, at which time Cayce would announce that he could not find or locate such a person. Subsequently there would be no complaint from the person who had not secured the requested Reading.

Cayce woud often be given a name, years after an initial Reading, then after stating, "Yes, we have had this body before," go into a lengthy discourse as if there had been no break in time whatsoever.

The story of Edgar Cayce indicates the existence of a super consciousness.

"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, with all thy heart, thy soul, and thy body, and thy neighbor as thyself." Evidence of the existence of God, the Soul or Afterlife is found in the Edgar Cayce material.

      The scripture speaks for itself. You obviously don't know the bible you profess to follow. Read1 Samuel 15:10-11 for yourself out of your own Bible, that is if you own one. You haven't backed your words with any evidence. People like you can't insult me because I won't let your words be an insult, just a testimony to your intelligence. I'm done, so spout on.

      doris. first I am not a christian, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ . the bible no where says to not judge, that is a lie taught by churchman. In fact it requires us to Judge those that profess to be His. We are NOT to judge those outside His church.

      why are you judging me in your carnal ways if you believe we are not to judge. What scripture says is do not judge UNLESS YOU are willing to be judged by the measure in which you judge. I am, are you? I judge the words that are said to be of God as scripture tells us to by SCRIPTURE not as you are doing in the carnal mind.

      You clearly do NOT KNOW JESUS or God and surely have shown no correct knowledge in your comment.

      God is Perfect, He made no mistake, if you understood scripture you would know that the people rejected God and wanted a man to be their king so he gave them the perfect solution to show how evil man become when they follow man instead of God a great lesson the church system could learn in these days.

      You are a hypocrite of the worst kind, trying to make God look bad, but you cannot do that with scripture,

      @ Charlie,

      You wrote "...a living God that is perfect in HIS ways."

      Since you are such a fine Christian, did you know that your Jehovah, by his own admission, is not perfect? I'm willing to bet that you did not. Read 1 Samuel 10:15:

      1 Samuel 15:10-11:

      10 Then the word of the Lord came to Samuel: 11 “I regret that I have made Saul king, because he has turned away from me and has not carried out my instructions.” (NIV)

      God admitted that he made a mistake! The word "regret" indicates that he made and carried out a decision that he now regrets. This verse also seems to indicate that God was not "all knowing" or "omnipotent," or he would have known that Saul would not have carried out his wishes. How human of him!

      You need to stop judging other people like it says in the Bible.

      Love your neighbor as yourself because we are all connected. Do No Harm to other people. We are all One.

      you may keep your gods but I am only interested in the Living God, who sent His only son to die that I may have life eternal, not looking for a god that is good in man's eyes but A living God that is perfect in HIS ways.

      I will waste no more time on apostates such as you

      Charlie: “ All stories which depict God with negative human emotions such as being: Jealous, Vengeful or Wrathful is Blaspheme”, which is totally contrary to scripture,...."

      We agree, a Good God is totally contrary to scripture (The Bible). If you believe in a God who is Jealous, Vengeful or Wrathful you are emotionally disturbed.

      Wow, Jay, did you ever bring out a judgmental bible thumper to comment. Judgmental, how unchristian of him! I think the bible says somewhere to judge not, lest ye be judged.

      Yes, it has been proven that all religions contained the Golden Rule because to follow the Golden Rule is the basis of following god. However, one can follow that rule without being religious. My father professed to be an atheist, but he is a great example of one who treated others as he hoped they would treat him.

      If we possess and acknowledge that spiritual love, or love of god, we will treat others with love. I am a member of the A.R.E., and reading Edgar Cayce is what got me past man's religion and into spirituality. However, he is just a little too "man's Christianity" for me to stick strictly with his beliefs.

      The Bible says that all things will be revealed in the "Endtimes", and I believe the "Endtimes" refers to the end of the Piscean Age and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius, which also ended an approximate 26,000 year cycle in our galaxy. Revelations today are giving us new knowledge uniting religion and science, and in turn, creating a new religion or spirituality for the world. Cayce is probably the greatest modern-day Christian who lived, but the new revelations are backdating some of his beliefs. But no one can deny that he worked what in Jesus' day would be termed as miracles by helping people to heal themselves.

      WOW you have completely exposed yourself here. You compare the false religions to the Lord Jesus Christ, by saying all you need is the golden rule.

      Then you say , and( I agree with this but for a reason different than yours) there is no need for a church building , seminaries and priesthood, ( my reason is because we that follow the Risen Christ have the Holy Spirit in and guiding us to teach us all truth).

      Then you say “We must analyze first our relationship to God, as it manifests itself in our relationship to our fellow man “, while scripture does say they will know is by our love, the measure of our relationship to God is whether we are becoming more Christ like.

      Next you say “ All stories which depict God with negative human emotions such as being: Jealous, Vengeful or Wrathful is Blaspheme”, which is totally contrary to scripture, but is found in the claims for many false gods that accept. I will only put a few of the many scriptures her, just enough for them to call you a liar and a false teacher and prove you do not possess the Holy Spirit which ALL disciples of Christ must possess.

      Ex 20:5 For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, v

      Ex 34:14 (for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord , whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God),

      Matt 3:7-8 "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8

      John 3:36 He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."

      Then you go on and use edgar cayce as an example in an article about God? A mystic. In the old testament day he would have been included in the following scripture as a sorcerer. But because some of the apostate churchmen and their “churches” decided to include him they decided to call him a christian mystic. There is no such thing found anywhere but in the false church system of man..

      Deut 18:10-13 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord , and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you. 1

      You are bringing a false doctrine and your writings do not belong In any section devoted to Jesus Christ, God or the scriptures. You do not possess the Holy Spirit of God and bring a different spirit, spirit of the father of all lies, the spirit of satan . Jesus warned us in scripture to beware of those like you that bring a false doctrine in HIS NAME, so because most people are afraid to speak truth where it is not welcome , I must and Do. As Paul made clear we must expose error in what professes to be the church and names names in order to protect the babes and unlearned in the ways of God.
