LoJ:Well, we can't exactly say since you are "very reluctant to write it here or even use" it. But weren't you the one who did use it though?

Babacele:You called my Friend a lair then brought up your father making it seem like you are right and i'm wrong.
Baba, you want to proof that AMORC is harmless by posting some numbers without a name or more details about whose number those were.
Cele, if I'm wrong and you are right, then provide verifiable info about your ex-AMORC Dad.
It's established that there's nothing I will post here that you won't call it a lie. so, go on post yours Dad's so that wen I post my friend's, based on your Dad's the general public will know if I'm wrong or not.
You know what? I don't care, you choose your path, but keep Jesus of Nazareth out of your filthy darkness.

This is clearly way above your level of 'believing' Shepherd. Take it up with those who have time for you.
|Re: Ask Me Any Question(s) About AMORC And Other Esoteric Organisations In Nigeria by Shepherd00: 8:41pm On May 21, 2019|
Babacele:Will you believe or not?
You won't answer that. And, I'm waiting for your Dad's full details.

budaatum:Yes, Buda, this is what I've been trying to tell you from the first page of this thread. You and I don't belong to the same level. For;
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
1 Corinthians 1:27-28
You are far too knowledgeable to be a Christian, for Christ didn't come looking for people who and more intelligent than Him. He came for the meek and lowly. the teachable.
[b]Where is the wise 'Budaatum'? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world 'Budaatum'? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
For after that in the wisdom of God (the world by wisdom knew not God,) it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them ~~~that believe.~~~
And, Buda, you failed Woefully as everyone has seen the fraud that you are. You cannot be a follower of Jesus if you are not a Christian, and you say you are not. So, mind your Buddhism or whatever you believe in, and stop summersaulting scriptures hoping you'd mislead someone. this sin is unpardonable.

Shepherd00:It seems to be a great concern of your's what buda does or says so go on and throw buda in Shepherd's hell and let us know who cares what you think.
Meanwhile, Jesus Christ the Messiah is Lord.

budaatum:You were an atheist who didn't believe in God. You said all.sorts of things against God. You supported your homosexuality, Go back and check, you'd never see me quoting or mentioning you, for what nah?
But when you claim you are for Christ and use the Word albeit wrongly, whether or not you like it, you are asking for a rebuke.
Buda, i'd not care if Buda will stop using Scriptures (the same ones he believes is propaganda) out of whatever he says here. I will not stand by and watch you falsify Scriptures because you feel you can. I can definitely not stop you from doing this, but as long as I'm here, any post you make with twisted-out-of- context- Word, I will call you out, except I didn't see it
budaatum:Even satan knows that and he trembles at the mere thought of it.
You didn't say what Jesus went to do in Egypt.

LoJ:Apologies! I've found Baba's post on the subject, and if I'd seen it at the time I would have informed him that the knowledge of Rosicrucianism is not from some gwb. He mentioned "the days of Pharaoh Akhenaten", and he was not exactly 'white'.
But let me.
Babacele:The knowledge you speak of is from way more sources than the two you mention here Baba. You'd be amazed what was written in Hindu philosophy as well as Buddhist and Jainist philosophy for instance, but like the River Niger, some things don't appear to exist until Mungo Park says they do.
Aside, if you both could, perhaps see my input here as adding to and not making out I know more than anybody else. I don't. But if we all contribute our small loaf and fish perhaps millions will be fed.

Shepherd00:I'm sure you said "bye"! What you doing back already?I'd ask you to stop the shameless lying shepherd, but I doubt you possibly can. Anyway, and just so it's clear, Atheist. Probably longer than you've lived shepherd, and some even said the only true atheist on here. Now, Jesus is Lord, amen.
And not joining in your unhealthily obsession with homosexuality and gay bashing is not the same as "support homosexuality" shepherd.

Shepherd00:Stop bearing false witness Shepherd. God does not like liars! You have not read what buda writes, nor did anyone make you the Scripture police!
buda has said, continuously, that buda does not do 'believe', and I wonder why buda quotes Scripture if it were "propaganda" as you claim! Or is "Thou shalt not bear false witness" propaganda that you yourself do not believe in, or better still, know?

budaatum:Don't forget that the civilization that influenced the whole western world dates far back to Egypt with her mystical ,scientific,commerce and administrative/ political prominence. There is no doubt that Akhnaton brought Monotheism, while being directed by the invisible masters whose messengers were present ,at the same time, in places all over the world. These places maintain the holy masters' instructions/ revelations or inspirations which are formed into special knowledge in a school like settings to guide the ready students . It respects no tribe,race,class or religion.
The GWB , if you would permit my insufficient language, has a pattern of ways of choosing messengers all over the world to continue the great work , and examples abound.

Shepherd00:You made false allegations you cannot substantiate hence my using my dad as an ex member of AMORC with his Key number while you can't bring any evidence to support your claim. I said at no cost to you, I'm ready to sponsor a team to go verify your claim ,and come to expose it here on Nairaland for the world to see. Isn't that fair enough?

Babacele:Akhenaten only ruled for 17 years and didn't have enough time to institute much. He tried to shift his culture from Egypt's traditional religion, but the shifts were not widely accepted. After his death, his monuments were dismantled and hidden, his statues were destroyed, and his name excluded from the king lists. Traditional religious practice was gradually restored, and when some dozen years later rulers without clear rights of succession from the 18th Dynasty founded a new dynasty, they discredited Akhenaten and his immediate successors, referring to Akhenaten himself as "the enemy" or "that criminal" in archival records. He was all but lost from history until the discovery during the 19th century of the site of Akhetaten, the city he built and designed for the worship of Aten, at Amarna. Wiki
Also, Aten, or Atum, (1991–1778 BC) as I know it, predates Akhenaten (1351–1336 BC) by about 600 years.
I guess the point here is how we know what we know. Egypt itself suffered from what LoJ would have called 'hiding information'. The Egyptian priests considered their rites so holy that they did not initiate enough people to carry it on which resulted in them losing the ability to read their own hieroglyphs until it was deciphered in 1799 when Napoleon Bonaparte researchers found the Rosetta Stone which is a decree of Ptolemy V written in Greek, demotic and hieroglyphic writing.
I guess I can't argue that Napoleon Bonaparte researchers were not GWBs. But the information we now have was mostly deciphered from ancient text, and not deliberately handed down by invisible messengers, except thankfully through the art of writing, and neither was it only influenced by Egypt but also by
Period: 3500 BC–500 BC
Original Location: Northeast by the Zagros mountains, southeast by the Arabian plateau
Current Location: Iraq, Syria, and Turkey
Indus Valley civilization
Period: 3300 BC–1900 BC
Original Location: Around the basin of the Indus river
Current Location: Northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India
To name but two. And that's only according to what we know, which is a tiny fraction of what has actually happened, humans having been in existence for far longer (tens of thousands of years) than the earliest known civilisations (4000-6000 years at a stretch), who also contributed, and we are still mainly ignorant in the western world about ancient but not so distant China.
Modern-day culture and civilization owes a lot to the earliest civilizations that emerged after millions of years of human evolution. Human civilization has come a long way from an age when there were no defined means of communication and hunting was the primary source of food. Gradually, agriculture took over from foraging, animals were domesticated, societies were created and developed, and eventually led to the societies that we live in today. Each individual civilization listed here contributed in many ways: new inventions, new ideas, new cultures, philosophies, lifestyles, etc. From the very cradle of civilization to the modern day, what we have become is a result of all civilizations that came before.source
Rosicrucian (gwb again!) is about pulling all this knowledge together in one place and disseminating it to all that seek, but even they do not have all the wisdom knowledge that has existed or that exists. China, India, etc, have similar 'schools', which over time Rosicrucianism has incorporated into its teachings (Buddhism, Daosim, Hinduism, to name three). In the 60s, it was mainly Egypt that was their fashion, and in the 17th Century, it was mainly Christianity, though ancient Greece, Roman ideas always permeated through the years.
Note this is all over the place! It's indicative of my own limited knowledge and ignorance. It's also what has made me a theist of the Christian Scripture. Mystically speaking, "God so loved the World" is the reason we have the Word. Alchemically speaking, it's not about believing the 'facts' but about transmuting our ignorance into that which is worthy with how we learn to be.

budaatum:Very well sir. Several forces have been responsible for our present civilization. What we enjoy today are a metamorphosis of several cultures,ideals and ideas no doubt. But certain persons shape history by the boldness of their convictions: Akhnaton was such a leader. He became the channel through which silent truths in the minds of others hiding from the poison of ignorance became public. Knowing that he was faced by that eternal war between two principles- good and evil- he employed the law of secrecy to nurture the traditions which have survived time.

If there are no persons who have been trained in the art of deciphering ,how could so many important documents,symbols, inscriptions or hieroglyphics been correctly interpreted?
The far east no doubt have evolved really good and have long documented history of their development which are well known to the mystics in the western world. In fact many of them maintained a close relationship or share the same principles or philosophies and influenced one another greatly. Egypt being strategic, no doubt, enjoyed this relationship through India. For instance, who would have thought that certain same documents, ciphers,symbols or artefacts are usually replicated and sent to different parts of the world through special emissaries for safekeeps? Until AMORC released some of the unknown information about the lives of Jesus the Christ, certain persons in the western world doubted He even existed ,and easily pointed at the so many gaps in the christain Bible stories to support their claims. Spencer Lewis had to reach out to many old Rosicrucian records, and libraries even in the far East to put that beautiful book " The Mystical Life of Jesus" together. And in it are revealed so many influences from the East.
Yes the pooling of the best ideas and cosmic philosophies together to help one another is the Rosicrucian ideal. As you had mentioned earlier, when did we know what we know? If we could put ourselves in the ancient Egypt with its many gods and the prevailing socio-political intrigues of the time,vis a vis Egypt influence on the Western Hemisphere long before any Torah or Bible or any of the Abrahamic religion came to being, one would appreciate Akhnaton's boldness of promoting monotheism at the risk of his own life.

budaatum:Lewis more than anybody alive presently has written clearly about the erroneous claims being made about the GWB as a physical entity . No doubt that for lack of a better expression, the early mystics had probably used the GWB or GWL as a physical assembly of evolved adepts. Many principles did they permit the cosmic to flow through them which has formed the Rosicrucian ideals one of which presently is known as AMORC. There are others with different names.
There was a rich tradition that was entrusted to Lewis in the early 1900 to continue in the New World after some years of dormancy or away from public life . Earlier, certain Rosicrucians had left the Old world with the knowledge of the then Master Sir Francis Bacon in the late 1600 for America. So thus the rosicrucian traditions found its way to the New world. I think a further discussion later, on the history of AMORC would clear all seeming doubts on how Lewis was found worthy and entrusted to continue the wonderful school which today is known as AMORC .

@babacele budaatum fratermathy
Do you have any interest discussing the Templars? I believe at lot about western mysticism can be uncover once light is made about them. They may be the treasure hidden in the field.
After all, the topic says we can discuss any esoteric organization.

budaatum:OK for another thread.
Relevant in terms of what. I believe without the Templars there would be no rosicrucian thought or freemasonry. I am convinced what they found and hid is likely to be a major key.

Babacele:By studying, Baba. And reasoning. Though, if one hadn't learnt (through training, or self study) to 'decipher hieroglyphs' (not literally speaking), one wouldn't be able to. And one has to learn from somewhere, but still, one builds on it. You be amazed what can be learnt from studying Plato, for instance, or John Stuart Mills even.
It is about the development of the mind which is done by not eating only bread (and adopting beliefs which rigid by their nature), but every Word God wrote (which teaches to reason by resolving contradictions and thereby squaring the circle). I bet if I checked your shelves, I'd find lots of nutrients on it. I'm working on the assumption that all you know was not given you but 'found' by you because you sought (seeked) for it. That you have found shows in your juicy delicious fruits.
Here is something from Prince Rose Croix. The WORD is the Vehicle by which God acts on the Universe; the World of Ideas by means whereof God has created visible things; the more Ancient God, as compared with the Material World; Chief and General Representative of all Intelligences; the Arch-angel, type and representative of all spirits, even those of Mortals; the type of Man; the primitive man himself. These ideas are borrowed from Plato. And this WORD is not only the Creator ["by Him was everything made that was made"], but acts in the place of God; and through him act all the Powers and Attributes of God. And also, as first representative of the human race, he is the protector of Men and their Shepherd, the "Ben H’Adam," or Son of Man.
And here's something about orign. The Fama Fraternitatis presents the legend of a German doctor and mystic philosopher referred to as "Father Brother C.R.C." (later identified in a third manifesto as Christian Rosenkreuz, or "Rose-cross" ). The year 1378 is presented as being the birth year of "our Christian Father", and it is stated that he lived 106 years. After studying in the Middle East under various masters, possibly adhering to Sufism, he was unable to spread the knowledge he had acquired to prominent European scientists and philosophers. Instead, he gathered a small circle of friends/disciples and founded the Rosicrucian Order (this can be deduced to have occurred around 1407).
In his work "Silentium Post Clamores" (1617), the rosicrucian Michel Maier (1568–1622) described rosicrucianism as having arisen from a "Primordial Tradition" in the following statement: "Our origins are Egyptian, Brahmanic, derived from the mysteries of Eleusis and Samothrace, the Magi of Persia, the Pythagoreans, and the Arabs."
Yet, none of it must be believed, but understood instead, as none of it is literal.
