End of Gospel book, edition 3.4

I present new edition 3.4 of my book “End of Gospel”.

When I started to write this book, my English was rather bad. But as for now, I’ve took some English lessons. Using my improved knowledge of English I have rewritten this book in better English.

The book is available online free of charge:

Note that as of this edition, I have abandoned formatting PDF for print layout. The book is now optimized for electronic e-book distribution.

There are also other little changes in the book.

Read this amazing book.

Reconciling humility and God’s purpose

(I’m going to add the text of this blog post into my book.)

Gospel teaches to (Phil. 2:3) each counting others better than himself consider others below ourselves. Now I will muse about the following topic: How we knowing Gospel may consider others above us? Doesn’t knowledge of Gospel makes us above other?

The correct answer is that converting to Christ makes us worse not better.

Do I imply that people should refuse to convert to Christ? No, and the reason is the following: The God’s desire is (1Tim. 2:4) who (God) desires all people to be saved to save as much people as possible. But there is a limit on the number of saved people (Rom. 11:25) … the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. It is clear that the reason for this limit is the impossibility to “pack” more people into the heaven without a conflict. God solves the following mathematical problem: Save as much people as possible without falling into a conflict between them.

I mean a worse man is somebody who disturbs salvation of others more. And by this criterion already saved are worse than unsaved.

Probably the best example of how a saved person may prevent salvation of others is my spiritual war which I fought in the past. I was really the biggest of sinners. I could call my sin “magic”, that is misuse of spiritual powers.

Thus follows that evanglelization should not be our main purpose. Instead we need humility before each other and before unbelieving people which are actually better than us, as the mean to reach the full number of pagans. If we need to choose between evangelization and humility we should choose humility, because it influences the process behind the scene. Evangelization is just a screen before the actual essence of events as it is clear from (Jn. 6:44) No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. I can say: People are saved not by evangelization but by move of Holy Spririt, evangelization is just an external appearance of God’s work.

Thus remember: From the moment you convert to Christ your are already saved and thus you become less important person that unbelievers as long as it concerns future, but indeed only future matters not past.

Conversion into a friend of Christ

[Based on my book “End of Gospel”.]

Traditional Christianity offers you becoming a Christ’s slave.

I offer something other, to become free, neither His slave nor a slave of anybody else.

(Jn. 8:31-32) 31 Jesus therefore said to those Jews who had believed him, “If you remain in my word, then you are truly my disciples. 32 You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

Believing in Christ makes us also believing in His commandments in Gospel, believing in the commandments makes us slaves as accordingly to our faith we are directed to deciding our actions accordingly to the commandments. Below I write how to get rid from this kind of slavery for Gospel.

Conversion into traditional Christianity is not good because sins of a convert need to be managed by the Master that is Christ. (Mt. 23) 15 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel around by sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much of a son of Gehenna as yourselves. Thus a slave of Christ is not a good thing but a son of Gehenna.

Christ does not need slaves. He needs to pay for sins of His slaves and this is not His will.

Thus I offer you to become free disciples of Christ, not slaves of sin and not slaves of Christ anymore.

The reasons for this:

  • It’s better for you to be free than to be slaves of somebody
  • Christ will not need anymore to manage you with your sins as His slave

The attempt to observe the commandments leads only to harm (like Victor Porton’s attempt to start nuclear war as an edge case). Thus Gospel cancels itself and an attempt to follow it is useless. Thus I am freed by this truth from the obligation to observe the commandments and the commandments are only recommendations for me. I’m not a slave of Christ anymore but His friend.

Our attempt to follow the commandments produces only violation of more important commandments. For example, we are greedy for money needed for our vision of accomplishing Christ’s commandments and this is not good.

We cannot fulfill the commandments of Gospel and may only cause harm if we attempt to follow Gospel and therefore should be set free from the commandments. Instead I expect from Christ to change me and to make the observation of commandments my inner nature, not to follow them artificially.

Ready to become a friend of Christ? Just pronounce the following confession and this is done!

I want to become a friend of Christ and not a neither slave of anybody nor anything, even not a slave of Christ Himself. I admit that Christ has died for my sins in order to pay by the price of His life for purchasing me with the following plan to make me free from any slavery.

I allow Christ to enter me and fix my soul, brain, and heart in order to set me free from sin, in order to live eternal life as an adopted child of God, according to my faith, not my attempt to observe the commandments.

I’m now a free person, not a slave of anybody or anything.

Amen.

After conversion into a friend of Christ, I welcome you to join the community of friends of Christ.

If you have not yet done it, read my book “End of Gospel”.

Updated “What is soul?” section

I updated the “What is soul?” section of online book “End of Gospel”.

The updated section is reprised here:

What is soul?

Soul is believed to be eternal, immaterial part of man.

What this means?

I have an unexpected answer: Soul is the warranty (given by God) for body (including warranty of preservation of information in the brain).

God gives the warranty as the creator of man.

So, it is natural that soul is eternal (that is God gives the warranty of eternal life) and immaterial (soul is not some thinner matter like astral bodies in some religions).

This way we come to the possibility of agreement of our religion with the science: The mind of a man is located in the brain but is backed up by independent soul.

The resurrection of the dead is an inherent property of soul (given by God). God warranted that if a man will die he will resurrect, this warranty is a part of soul.

Thus we have quite natural theory: God created agricultural robots (Gen. 1:15) Yahweh God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. with eternal warranty and backup.

Soul consists of hope. I could better translate this word dream. That is soul consists of dreams. (Rom. 8:24) … we were saved in hope. Hope is one of the three the most stable things in the Universe: (1Cor. 13:13) … faith, hope, and love remain—these three (remain mean that these cannot be destroyed, that is these are preserved at such things as bursts or any other destruction). So our salvation is preserved in the most stable form, as a dream of God which cannot be destroyed. Salvation is hope.

Note that I am speaking about soul mean the Greek word psyche, not Hebrew word nephesh.

Yahweh vs. Baal in Old Testament and New Testament

(This is a new chapter which will be added in a future edition of my book End of Gospel.)

Much of Old Testament is dedicated to consideration of people choosing to worship either Yahweh (that is God) or to Baal. These who serve Yahweh are blessed, these who serve Baal are cursed.

Yahweh is the creator of the Universe. But who is Baal? “Baal” literally translated is just “owner”.

Yahweh created people to be agricultural robots (Gen. 1:15) “Yahweh God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.” (You may say that people are not robots because they have soul. I suppose that what is known as soul is just eternal warranty for the robots, see my book.)

Both Adam and Eve have fallen (became broken robots).

Now to our issue, who is Baal? The answer is: Baal is the entity for whom Yahweh created the robots to serve him.

After the fall it became useless to attempt to serve Baal because the robots were broken. Yahweh in turn requires us to serve Him in order for us to be repaired (“saved” in evangelical terminology). Moreover Yahweh changed our purpose to serve Him becoming His children, not to Baal anymore.

Old Testament insist that we must serve Yahweh and not serve Baal.

Now to the New Testament. (1Cor. 6:19-20) “19 Or don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” In New Testament we are slaves of Christ. He has bought us from the former Baal, to make children of God from us.

We trinitarians believe that Christ is Yahweh (Son, the second person of God). Now also our Baal (the owner) is Christ.

The word “Baal” also can be translated as “husband” and Christ is called the husband of the Church in New Testament. So it is again confirmed that Christ is the Baal in New Testament.

In New Testament Christ is both Yahweh and Baal. So in New Testament we were serving to both Yahweh and Baal and both blessing of these who serve Yahweh and cursing of these who serve Baal were on us.

How to deal away with serving Baal not ceasing to serve Yahweh (Christ)?

The answer is: “Serving Baal” means slavery. If we serve Christ as slaves, we serve Baal. If we serve Christ as His friends not slaves, we serve Yahweh. The word “Baal” should be understood as “slavery”. Every time the word “Baal” is used in Old Testament, it signifies a mention of slavery (not freedom).

The correct answer is that we should cease to be slaves of Christ and become His friends.

Well, Christ is truth ((Jn. 14:6) “… I am … the truth”) and Christ is wisdom ((1Cor. 1:24) “Christ is … the wisdom of God.”). How we can be slaves of truth or slaves of wisdom? Being slaves of wisdom means to blindly follow wise principles not understanding what they are for, likewise being slaves of truth.

I call you to adopt the teaching of the End of Gospel to become free, not slaves of Christ anymore but His friends, so serving Yahweh only and not to Baal. Know the truth which sets free from slavery and makes us friends of God.
