These New Age guys are even worse than traditional religions. They are frauds.
They mix their religious woo woo with pseudoscience just to give it a patina of truth. Because the nonsense they peddle cannot stand up to scrutiny, they obfuscate it with technical jargon.
At least traditional religions try to get their authority from faith and something inexplicable to avoid having to submit to scientific scrutiny. These New Age clowns read some fringe pseudoscience articles on the internet and start claiming knowledge.
Then mix in a little bit of real science too and try to tell u all the pseudoscientific horseshit they peddle should also be regarded as valid.

And you never asked yourself, why would Jesus say "when thine eye is single..." when you have two eyes?
Did you noticed the bolded? Why the difference?
Because the third eye is the single eye, the "Father," that sees in secret, when your two physical eyes are closed.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 6:38am On Sep 01|
@bolded, that is a compliment.
I know you couldn't bring yourself to use the word "atheists," because it's hackneyed.
How do you think the great scientific discoveries or inventions came about?
The pineal gland is the "Comforter" the Bible talks about, that when it comes into full bloom will teach you all things.
Do a little YouTube search and see what people with blooming third eye are saying and doing.
At least you have not denied not having a pineal gland.

iRyan:And what exactly do you wish to accomplish with this my dear friend?
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 7:00am On Sep 01|
Why do people spend their entire lives in the monastery?
Getting ones third eye to bloom is the greatest achievement, that is the master key to the kingdom.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by johnw74: 7:26am On Sep 01|
i'm not interisted in the pineal gland or the third eye
i showed for the benefit of anyone who cares, that the Bible and Jesus never said anything about the third eye, as was wrongly claimed
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 7:29am On Sep 01|
johnw74:@bolded, is a slap on Jesus.
So who created the pineal gland, and what are its functions?
The word is "when your eye is single" and i guess you have just one eye.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by johnw74: 7:35am On Sep 01|
the person you are replying to probably knows that the comforter is the Holy Ghost,
but you don't appear to know anything about God's word
Joh_14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by johnw74: 7:38am On Sep 01|
the greek word that eye comes from is "ophthalmos" and it means eye and implies vision - sight:
The light of the body is the eye(visoin): therefore when thine eye(vision) is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye(vision) is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
From G3700; the eye (literally or figuratively); by implication vision; figuratively envy (from the jealous side glance): - eye, sight.
Total KJV occurrences: 102
you have to take the word(single) in relation to the whole verse:
The light of the body is the eye therefore when thine eye is single,(that is all light and not darkness and light) then your whole body is also full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by NPComplete: 7:41am On Sep 01|
Hahahaha. I keep saying u guys are clowns. "Single" means so many things including being frank or honest. If I say one has a single devotion to something, does it mean that person has one devotion? Now u want to take an idiomatic expression that is probably lost in translation to explain your shitty third eye idea. LMAO.
Due to the difficulty in translating the Aramaic that Jesus was speaking at that time into Greek and then into English we may never truly know what he meant. To be single could have meant some other thing in that culture. Not the pineal gland, u fraud.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by johnw74: 7:46am On Sep 01|
slap on Jesus is ridiculous
i'm not interisted in the functions of the pineal gland, i'm fairly sure it is not an invisible eye though
i guess you don't know the Bible very well
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 7:57am On Sep 01|
We pride ourselves that Jesus spoke in parables yet reads it literally.
What if the he meant, "but the molecules, which the pineal gland will send... will teach you all things..."
What is a Comforter?
How do we feel comforted?
Our feeling of comfort is controlled by serotonin a molecule produced by the pineal gland.
DMT (dimethyltryptamine) is molecule produced by the pineal gland and controls our experience of states of reality.
So in the language of the ancient, the Comforter (molecule) is sent forth from the Father (pineal gland) to comfort us and teach us all things about states of reality.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 8:03am On Sep 01|
johnw74:If you are not interested in the functions of the pineal gland, then you have no business here.
Just read and believe your bible, allow those interested to figure out how the pineal gland functions and how to use it.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by johnw74: 8:14am On Sep 01|
Jesus say's differently, the kingdom doesn't come by seeing with an imaginary third eye
the Kingdom is Jesus who is within us, Christians will see the Kingdom(Jesus) come
(Luk 17:20) And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:(seeing)
(Luk 17:21) Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
(Luk 17:22) And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.
(Luk 17:23) And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.
(Luk 17:24) For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 8:15am On Sep 01|
@bolded, That is absolutely correct, and it is fraudulent for you to limit what it meant.
The third eye blooms if "one has a single devotion" to it.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 8:26am On Sep 01|
johnw74:If only you could interpret those scriptures well
The third eye is the pineal gland, not imaginary eyes. And science has shown that it contains needles and cones like the normal eyes but also produces molecules that enables it to see the invisible reality, and allow the body to experience other states consciousness: the kingdom within. .
You don't observe with the physical eyes what the third eye sees.
What the third eye sees is the kingdom within, which is in line with the scriptures you quoted.

|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by johnw74: 8:28am On Sep 01|
my business here is pointing out your wrong explanations of Bible verses
leave wrong explanations of Bible verses out of your third eye beliefs and i will
have nothing to post on this thread
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 8:33am On Sep 01|
johnw74:Do you have a monopoly of whom or how to interpret the Bible?
Stop defending what you don't know, we are here to learn and the best you can be is receptive.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by Mujtahida: 8:35am On Sep 01|
menxer:Don't mind those opposing you. The truth is that all spiritual experiences so called are really brain works. Scientists have been able to induce spiritual experiences by activating certain parts of the brain.
And why do you bother with the Bible. It's a book full of light and darkness and much darkness. That's why Christianity lacks spiritual vibe
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by johnw74: 8:35am On Sep 01|
those scriptures don't need interpreting they are straight forward,
nothing difficult there
if you want to talk science on the third eye theory that's okay,
i wouldn't be interisted
but if you want to say God's word agrees with you,
then post the scriptures that agree, so far you haven't
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by iRyan(m): 8:43am On Sep 01|
enyi1:i want to experience virtually everything there is to life more than the average human will in his lifetime
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by johnw74: 8:44am On Sep 01|
when the Bible makes plain sense, seek no other sense
you claim i don't know the Bible,
and i don't know it all, but between you and i,
so far you aren't doing to well
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 8:50am On Sep 01|
johnw74:I will take vision, which according to Wikipedia is:
Perception. Visual perception, the sense of sight. Visual system, the physical mechanism of eyesight. Vision (spirituality), a supernatural experience that conveys a revelation
I was expecting someone to shout hallelujah to God for giving man the third eye as an "oversight" function.
Mind you, the spectrum of light the normal eye sees is very narrow, meaning light outside that narrow band can only be seen with the pineal gland (third eye)
I hope you get your spiritual vision from your two nakèd eyes?
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 8:59am On Sep 01|
johnw74:@bolded, I made no such claim
Naaa, we aren't on the same page of knowing.
At least I know a little about the functions of the pineal gland in achieving spiritual enlightenment.
The Bible does not make plain sense else it wouldn't be written in parables.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by enyi1: 9:33am On Sep 01|
menxer:To become a saint. To live a holy and pious life. Now, still on my question, what do you need to accomplish with this? God drove Adam and Eve from the garden of Eden for a purpose? What do you want?
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by enyi1: 9:37am On Sep 01|
iRyan:U still haven't told me what you need to accomplish with this. Should you also try to die just to know how it feels to be dead?
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 9:50am On Sep 01|
So people don't live pious lives outside the monastery?
GO Adeboye must hear this.
@bolded, that assumes you are the gate man that neither enters nor suffers anyone else to enter Eden?
What I intend to accomplish (which I have), is to create awareness about the potentials of having a blooming pineal gland as a precursor to a vibrant spiritual enlightenment.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by menxer: 10:24am On Sep 01|
johnw74:It's OK, I understand the Bible is your comfort zone, but the truth about spiritual reality is way beyond that comfort zone. And you need to step out into the Unknown to experience it, else you are no better than a sleeper.
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by johnw74: 10:24am On Sep 01|
so you say the eye, vision, sight, is referring to a spiritual vision,
then you are referring to the mind and not a mystical third eye
a vision is something that one sees in the mind
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by johnw74: 10:26am On Sep 01|
the only thing i am defending here is the Bible,
you said stop defending what you don't know
perhaps your words are sometimes confused, i can believe that
i can also believe that the Bible does not make plain sense to you
|Re: The Third Eye: The Pineal Gland by johnw74: 10:37am On Sep 01|
the Bible certinally is one of my comfort zones,
the holy spirit is another, i understand how the Bible is not a comfort zone of yours
haha, there is no better spiritual reality than God's word
most of what you say is just mere words from your own mind
