I am my highest authority, judge and guide. Who is yours?

As a Gnostic Christian, I follow the esoteric teachings of Jesus.

Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

This fits perfectly with the bibles teachings that we are to judge all things and hold to the good.

1 Thessalonians 5:21 Test all things; hold fast what is good.

This is a compulsion to be our own masters instead of just kowtowing to someone else’s opinions.

This is also why Christians used their inquisitions on us. Freedom of thought was not allowed by Christianity.

A concept and freedom that Christians now seem to promote.

Many Christians follow the teachings of, to us, a genocidal and infanticidal demiurge, Yahweh.

How Christians can see him as a good god is beyond me and Christians shy away from any apologetics as to why they think such a satanic god is good.

I see my judgements as more moral than that immoral demiurge and that is why I have rejected him for Jesus.

Do you follow 1 Thessalonians 5:21, or do you let someone else do your judging for you?

Your first sentence was this:
“I am my highest authority, judge and guide.”
.. and it contradicts and reduces to zero
all the rest that follows, especially this:
“As a Gnostic Christian, I follow the esoteric teachings of Jesus.”
If you are your own highest judge and guide, then why do
you follow any other teachings than your own ???
I think it is a bad thing being a religious fanatic,
regardless of what religion we refer to.

So do I. Great minds think alike.

“As a Gnostic Christian, I follow the esoteric teachings of Jesus.”
Humans are near perfect mimics, perhaps only bested by monkeys. They are better at innovation.

You follow someone's thinking and teachings without thinking of yourself as a fanatic to their teachings, so why use that word for me?

The fact that we are esoteric ecumenists and universalists basically prevents us from being fanatical about anything.

In my case, I may take my hate against the supernatural believing mainstream religions too close to fanaticism. I like to be fanatical to harm reduction and the bastards in Christianity and Islam that are homophobic and misogynous.

I do not mind being fanatical towards their evil ways as long as all that I say is the truth.

You did not really answer the question.

Opinions are not judgements in and of themselves.

We absorb and evaluate them and form our judgements with them.

Shame about armeggedon online aint it? Welcome here i guess.
I think they were the masters of their own demise.

Many boards seem to be having problems because of the poor quality of the Christian apologists who just seem to throw insults at those who disagree with them instead of giving decent arguments.

I have noted that the religious trolls who do that or are forever just thumping are being banned, where in the past, it was more the non-believers who got the axe.

There used to be some decent big boards but now it seems it is more smaller private boards. I manage to stay active enough though.

I can agree that they were the architects of their own demise. Some really bad choices were made in the moderation team there. Here is much smaller with more rational based folks in charge. I see youre already making new friends here lol. Since we are already acquainted i doubt ill be getting into to many philosophical conversations with you. All the same i look forward to watching the interactions with others. 8 know you press but never cross the line. And i know how you do. Lol. Best of luck.

Regards,
A

the choices we make will determine the path we walk
choose wisely who you will fallow
yours, mine, or any other man's view of what is right are flawed.
we see through a glass darkly , and know only part of the thing .
there are none righteous no not one, for all men seek after there own lust
doing that which is right in there own eyes.
CHRIST told us all what is right and good, then showed us what it looks like.
yet it is a hard thing to die to ones self and live for CHRIST alone forsaking all others.
seek not to justify your self, or your actions, be very careful what you say, and do.

to the question
no I am not my own highest authority
the word of GOD almighty is the only authority . regardless of what any one may think or believe .

you know the deal
in the beginning was the WORD, and the word was with GOD , and the WORD was GOD.

make no mistake my friend, you are no authority, nor should you want to be.
we are all to do, and be, as we were told.
1 love GOD with all that we are.
2 love our neighbor as our self.

Simplistic garbage.

So you think you were created to always need a supernatural guide. Ok.

Keep your pacifier and ignore that he is a genocidal and infanticidal prick of a god. Not a good god to get morals from.

That is the only way you can maintain your delusion can be appeased. Pathetic to see one who cannot learn on his own and has to settle for a satanic god.

GOD is a just GOD,
Not when he is a genocidal prick, that you seem to respect, along with his homophobic and misogynous religion.

Your god is garbage, but do not bother wondering why.
