Hello fellow explorers and researchers,

Welcome to my blog,

This venue will be for the free open exploration of religious and philosophical subjects, some of which I write just for the blog (like a timely journal), or transfer from my other writings, or special posts within discussion threads on the forum that I want to archive for later reference,...so using the blog here is a creative-expression mostly, for sharing commentary on a variety of subjects. My style is an eclectic, universal and synergestic approach to theology and philosophy, so enjoy that as you can :) - Also, I'm open to comments and some dialogue here, sharing of resource links, etc. but prefer taking on a more extensive dialogue in the respective threads themselves, if these are 'linked' here so one can follow the total discussion for a greater contextual over-view. There are many dimensions to consider and EXPLORE. So put on your thinking caps, open your consciousness, position your spirits to dive in, re-search, expand, co-create and engage
.

In the explorative universal approach to wisdom, I use only as a general guide-reference to spark one's research, the traditional Blavatskian school of Theosophy, but this is only a primer to universal truth studies and occult science, for my own approach is not limited to only this school. I only use it as a general philosophical impetus to explore universal themes of both religion and science, synthesizing them into a more cosmic and individual religious pursual and practice.

  1. The Comma Johanneum

    by , October 14th, 2015 at 06:55 PM (Freelight-express)
    Hello all,

    I've recently added some posts about the 'Comma Johanneum',....a passage inserted into the text of 1 John 5:6-8, which is not found in the earliest greek manuscripts, but originates in the latin text/traditions and a few very late greek manuscripts (having been translated from the latin back into greek...notice, the 'latin' is its source). All the evidence points to it being a later interpolation, not in the original greek textual-tradition at all, based on the earliest ...

  2. 'only begotten Son' or 'only begotten God'?

    ~*~*~

    Hello all,

    We debate and explore this question concerning John 1:18 here & here.

    These shall suffice for now with corresponding commentary links. The key consideration here is that while 'only begotten Son' seems to be the most appropriate translation...even if we use the early Alexandrian manuscripts with the rendering ' only begotten god'...a Unitarian interpretation is tenable here...since Jesus is he who reveals the invisible 'God' being God's ...

  3. Spiritism

    In light of recent threads about whether 'eternal conscious torment' (ECT) is 'biblical', or even 'reasonable' and 'justifiable' philosophically...which is what vein I consider any teaching in upfront,...we'll explore a Spiritist view on this subject.

    As far as sin (any transgression of natural or spiritual law) is concerned, souls suffer in equal proportion to their sinning, as every soul reaps what it sows (the law of equal compensation). A concept of eternal ...

  4. ECT

    I question and challenge the traditional concept of 'Eternal Conscious Torment' (ECT), which presumes the wicked or 'unsaved' will be punished or tormented forever in a lake of fire, or a hell-like realm, for all eternity, to no end or resolve. I challenge this 'belief' on many levels, also as we contemplate the principles of 'free will' and the 'law of compensation'(karma) in light of the eternal will of God who is Love.

    In Timotheo's thread 'Is the doctrine of Eternal Conscious Torment biblical or not?' ...

  5. Eternal Being ( I Am That )

    I'd like to reflect upon a beautiful statement I heard from a video from the Brennan school of healing on the path of personal healing.

    I paraphrase -

    "The mind has no answers; the heart has no questions".

    This is such a profound statement as to allow a deeper open meditative state upon its reception as it touches at once the soul and heart, calling forth a deeper meaning of spirit.

    The mind is an 'interpreter/translator', ...
