|Re: Esoteric Paths by LoJ: 5:42am On Mar 26|
The question remains why do societies with such ideals can possibly stir so much controversy. The saying goes :there is no smoke without a fire. What is the fire that could cause all this smoke? I believe the reasons are multiple:
1- people are always afraid of what they don't know. What people don't know nor understand is usually the target of their accusations. But this alone can't explain why western esotérica is so much frowned upon.
2-the secrecy aspects of those clubs make it easier to form lobbies and sects within the sect with different objectives than those of the school.
But I believe the major reason is:
3- secret societies are seen by many as a pathway rather a shortcut to prestige fame and wealth. Most people who join do so because they want to feel among and become rich and powerful. This shameful tendency consequently led to the crafts being filled with low level souls with no ideals and nobility but pride ambition power hunger and similar vice.
Also, world powers have seen in this an opportunity to subject the elite of their colonies. As such, France the USA Great Britain tendencially installed and used those societiee to further their own political agenda.
This is most unfortunate. Indeed no organization is greater than the sum total of its members. When the quality of these is low, the organization loses in glory. But remember, being a Mason or a rosicrucian is beyond belonging to Amorc or free masonry. Just as being a true Christian or Muslim is more than just belonging to a church organization or Muslim group.
It is a matter of conviction, dedication, character and understanding.

lol! take a chill pill bro! I said weird dreams, not bad/nightmarish experiences. It was mainly about things that I didn't understand (at that time), the information overload got to me and I stopped. Please cease from this ramblings about demons and possession, the message wouldn't be about love if demons had a hand in it.
|Re: Esoteric Paths by chrisbaxtian(m): 6:45am On Mar 26|
dude I am not foolish enough to mess with the dark side, besides it was an experience that led to discoveries.

chrisbaxtian:I am glad to know, you can and are able to handle yourself, but not everyone is capable of holding themselves down like you because some who foolishly sought the experience and power, by riding the back of the tiger, have ended up inside the tiger's belly. The further away you stay from a tiger, the less chance you have of getting eaten by one or ending in its belly, is all I am just saying. Keep your eyes peeled. Shine your eyes.
chrisbaxtian:Not all that glitters, is gold
|Re: Esoteric Paths by UceeGod(m): 9:28am On Mar 26|
Any knowledge devoid of God's will and purpose only leads to death - remember Adam and Eve.
|Re: Esoteric Paths by Shepherd00: 9:37am On Mar 26|
chrisbaxtian:Your Life, your businesses.
|Re: Esoteric Paths by LoJ: 11:16am On Mar 26|
MuttleyLaff:Indeed. this also applies to religion that promise an eternal life of happiness at little or no cost except to believe in their own version of God. And in case you have doubts, you should be happy to escape the eternal flame created by a loving god, and stop questioning. And you don't need to worry too much about sin, for the blood of Jesus is available and provides you a free sin licence.
True esoteric paths promise you nothing. No carrot and no stick to Keep you going. If ones wants to change, he has to truly will it. If we want a better world, we have to build ourselves.
To me, it is obvious which way glitters, and which may be Gold.

|Re: Esoteric Paths by chrisbaxtian(m): 1:23pm On Mar 26|
what do you really know about God's will?
|Re: Esoteric Paths by UceeGod(m): 1:48pm On Mar 26|
chrisbaxtian:When His Spirit lives in you, you'll know His will and align your own will with His.
|Re: Esoteric Paths by chrisbaxtian(m): 1:51pm On Mar 26|
This sounds like an intellectual answer, but in truth it is not. it is vague and fails to address the issue. What exactly do you know about the will of God?

|Re: Esoteric Paths by Shepherd00: 3:58pm On Mar 26|
LoJ:You wish you can have another life time.
Die first let's see. The demons hosting in your body will be the ones taking up your memories with the intent to deceive people that you have reincarnated, while you'll be in hell belching smoke from your mouth ears and everywhere.
|Re: Esoteric Paths by Shepherd00: 4:02pm On Mar 26|
LoJ:Tell that to the wind. You can insure your soul into Satan's hands and yet decide you'll no longer continue and just turn back abi?
The only ones you can deceive are the ones who are blind to the gimmicks of Satan.
Satan takes slaves and never lets go.
|Re: Esoteric Paths by Shepherd00: 4:04pm On Mar 26|
chrisbaxtian:The Will of God is that His Kingdom come and earth be ruled like Heaven, as He intended before Adam sold out.
His Will is that I become like Him.
E clear you now?
|Re: Esoteric Paths by MuttleyLaff: 4:11pm On Mar 26|
chrisbaxtian:The three Rs signifies what the will of God is about, as in, has to do with doing the right thing, that's done at the right time whilst remaining on right standing with God, plus being on His terms and good side.
|Re: Esoteric Paths by chrisbaxtian(m): 6:25pm On Mar 26|
what is the right thing?
when is the right time?
what is the right standing with God?
|Re: Esoteric Paths by chrisbaxtian(m): 6:27pm On Mar 26|
smh! we could possibly derail this thread if I decide to move along this tangent with you guys.
Word of advice, speak of only that which you know and experienced
|Re: Esoteric Paths by MuttleyLaff: 7:49pm On Mar 26|
chrisbaxtian:My dear friend and brother, the string word that ties each one together is approval. The right thing is that thing God approves of, the right time is the doing it at a time God approves of, and the right standing with God, is making sure your action, conduct, deed, thought, word or whatever it is, will be approved by God enough that you remain in God's good book and be in right standing with Him
chrisbaxtian:Why the smh, don't you realise that Shepherd00 is to a degree, right ni? Fundamentally, what Shepherd00 typed, to start with, is part of what the original will of God is, chrisbaxtian
|Re: Esoteric Paths by UceeGod(m): 9:50pm On Mar 26|
Above all that has been written here, the will of God for you chrisbaxtian, is to have His indwelling Spirit in you so you can fulfill the purpose for which He created you.
|Re: Esoteric Paths by gensteejay(m): 7:29am On Mar 27|
All these "Jesus" people should stop derailing this thread with their BS. Save your nonsensical biblical beliefs for the ignorant and fearful lot like you. Let's read what OP has to say.
Enough of your bunkum! Fearful lot.

gensteejay:"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;
but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires;"
2 Timothy 4:3
Have you read anyone telling OP to stop typing, huh?
Whatever OP has to write, is just going to be like the, have you considered my servant Job? No one is like him, a man of perfect integrity, who fears God and turns away from evil, remark.
|Re: Esoteric Paths by gensteejay(m): 8:09am On Mar 27|

gensteejay:The thread has in no way been derailed, please dont criticize and stop decrying the neighbourly warning issues, especially when seen that people are hungry for God, but hungry for Him, going about it and doing it, the wrong way. When the proverbial shiit hits the fan, guess you'll there cleaning up, wiping and drying bums, right?
|Re: Esoteric Paths by gensteejay(m): 8:45am On Mar 27|
MuttleyLaff:Create a separate thread and post your nonsense there.

A brave person will be honest no matter how bitter the truth, but a coward hides behind silence, lies, deceit and the cloak of darkness. It is appalling how many people are aversed to honesty but are titillated by deceit, lies, delusions, false hopes and first grade nonsense.
|Re: Esoteric Paths by gensteejay(m): 9:09am On Mar 27|
MuttleyLaff:Keep posting tripe then since you're jobless.
I didn't expect an ignorant person to know the meaning of "esoteric". If you did, you would know all the BS you quoted from the Bible is derailing this thread.
All the balderdash you post from your Bible is common knowledge to people that have studied your religion and its history.
I see jobless people like you around, who disturb our peace in the neighborhood with shouts of prayers to the devilish Jehovah and Jesus, even as early as 8am during week days when they are supposed to go out and work.
Pastors: Ignoble thieves and lazy bones clad in seemingly noble apparel.
