When Men Become Truly Free



Salvation

the act of saving or protecting from harm, risk, loss, destruction, etcetera

the state of being saved or protected from harm, risk, loss …

a source or means of being saved or protected from harm, risk, loss …

In Christian theology deliverance from the penalty of sin.

Salvation can be seen metaphorically as redemption.

Humans, unable to care for themselves at birth, require "saviors" to care until they can care for themselves.

When salvation is taken literally the object of salvation takes on human parent characteristics thus removing the object of salvation from the plane of perfection and placing it on an earthly plane with faulty parents.

Salvation Army

Civil Rights Violations = Slavenation Army!

Bell Ringers: Lowest-Paid, Most-Needed Employees


Salvation Army founder William Booth characterised the revolutionary Christianity of the Diggers and Levellers as "utopian" and believed that Salvation Army members could earn a large profit from businesses and still keep a good conscience.

Booth stated that what was important was not "whether a man died in the poorhouse but if his soul was saved".

With a military structure complete with uniforms the only permissible pleasure was praying and playing in the Army band.

As Britain's social problems increased, it was recommended that the poor be sent off to colonies.

Rather than find a solution to poverty colonization built a bigger Empire.

Aboriginals were confined to missions and their children forced to follow a strict pattern of work and 'Christian' education.

The Army actively participated in removing children from their families and giving them to white families.

Rabbit Proof Fence - Stolen Generations

Cecil Rhodes and Theodore Roosevelt lent their support.

It has had no greater success than in Australia where it has become the biggest charity, with the most-read Christian newspaper, the War Cry.

Record burning, belief in the coming end of the world, fear of demons, and other 'unusual' ideas, aren't widely known.

Young people are expected to marry only within the Army.

Officers are only allowed to marry other officers.

Disabled people and those forced to do community service are exploited.

To avoid oversupplying the market and cutting down business profit margins, the Army even goes so far as dumping tons of clothing in Africa.

The Salvation Army is a cult centered around William Booth.



Redemption Day


Stand in Awe of the Lord


Chinese charater for redemption


Redemption involves the surrender of the need for the cognitive dominance of agency defined as the need to cause submission and control action.

Redemption allows the ability to directly experience the joy of living.

This freeing of the Eternal Soul from social conditioning and social strictures renews and revives the human spirit stripping away spiritual corruption.

The Veil of Cognitive Blindness no longer obscures consciousness and the mirage of hyperreality dissolves into True Reality.



burning bush

repentance

Recognition of True Reality is

starring into the Face of the Creator.

The Burning Bush melts frozen hearts

allowing empathy to flow!







True repentance requires tears and fire in the heart!

Lightning and clouds are its indispensable condition.

You need fire and water for the fruit to ripen:

How can that occur without lightning and clouds?

Before the heart has been shattered by lightning

And before rains of tears have fallen from your eyes."

Rumi



soteriology is the study of salvation


In Christianity the different soteriologies can be grouped into distinct schools: the Catholics and Orthodox on Justification, the Church, the Sacraments, and free will; Arminianism's synergism; Calvinism's predestination; and a large range of Lutheran doctrine, including conversion, justification by grace alone through faith alone, the means of grace, and the Church.

In Islam soteriology focuses on how humans can repent of and atone for their failures and trespasses so as not to occupy a state of loss.

Salvation in the afterlife comes from the recognition and acceptance of the individual by Allah, with regards to their virtue, obedience and/or good deeds performed in their earthly life.

The Qur'an states, and the Sunnah confirms, that good deeds redeem wrong deeds and charity removes wrong deeds just as water quenches fire.

Judaism emphasizes morality in this life over concern with the afterlife.

The concern comes with the intent that ultimately all humanity can better its lot as everyone practices more virtuous and ethical behavior.

In Hellenistic soteriology salvation comes in this life brought by Alexander.

Stoicism is concerned with the cultivation of virtues such as fortitude and detachment to improve spiritual well-being.

Buddhist soteriology focuses on attaining liberation from suffering by earning through proper thought patterns the eternal salvation of Nirvana.

Hinduism has one unifying factor: to free oneself from the cycle of rebirth Hindus embark on a quest for enlightenment through concept of Ahimsa, which means "non-violence."

Jainism emphasizes penance and asceticism, which lead to liberation and ascendance of the Eternal Soul.

Sikhism advocates the pursuit of salvation through disciplined, personal meditation on the Message of God.

This meditation brings a person into union with the Creator and Sustainer.

According to Confucianist teachings, people cannot save themselves.

While their good deeds create good karma and merit (called boon), people cannot use it for themselves.

This merit can be used to help their ancestors, though, who are waiting in the spirit world and need help from the younger generation.

In this way the children assist in the salvation of the parents.

Shinto and Tenrikyo similarly emphasize working for a good life by cultivating virtue or virtuous behavior.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
