The Trump Cult

            Recently mainstream media (the Liberal Press) and the Democrats have been spewing forth propaganda that followers of President Trump are in a cult, that President Trump is a cult leader.
            First off I would like to say, that I am willing to accept that I am part of the cult because I understand what the word cult REALLY means!  So, let us examine the word cult in order to educate the mainstream media-Liberal Press and Democrats.
            The first thing that Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary says about cult is as follows:  “[adoration; to cultivate—more at WHEEL].”  Adoration has to do with adoring someone or perhaps some god or even the one God.  So we could say that religions in general could be considered as cults.  What does cultivate mean?  “1:  to prepare or prepare and use for the raising of crops; specif:  to loosen or break up the soil about (growing plants)  2  1:  to foster the growth of  b:  culture  2a  c:  to improve by labor, care, or study:  refine  3:  further encourage  4:  to seek the society of:   make friends with.”[1]  Well, can we accept that the followers of President Trump are farmers?  Some of them are, for sure, but not all of them.  So, let us look to 2a  c’s definition.  Culture is an improvement of mankind through three things – labor, care, and study.  And these things refine (improve, perfect by pruning or polishing; to free from what is coarse, vulgar, or uncouth; to become pure and perfected[2]) mankind.  So, again, being part of a cult seems to be a pretty good thing to me!

Bible Prophecy Fulfilled (continued)

Bible Prophecy Fulfilled (continued)

            Chapter 16 of Bliss Knapp’s book The Destiny of The Mother Church is titled “Prophecy”.  It begins on page 236 with the picture seen below.  In the top left hand corner, on the Side of Life, there is Jesus and Mary Baker Eddy (there are also other less defined figures in the clouds).  Then with hands in prayer fashion and looking to heaven, more in the center, but near the Side of Light there is the man child.

Bible Prophecy Fulfilled

The Woman

            “The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.”  “I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” (Matthew 13:33, 35)

            In Bliss Knapp’s book Destiny of The Mother Church he tells us about how the parable of the woman, told to us by Jesus, was kept secret from the foundation of the world, that it “implies that she was no ordinary woman and that her mission must be unique” (Destiny, p. 185).  His twelfth chapter (that seems to be in synch with Revelation’s twelfth chapter) is about Mary Baker Eddy and how she fulfilled Bible prophecy.  And this is the reason why the Board of Directors did not want his book to be read by Christian Scientists in the late 1940’s and why they really did not want to publish it in the early 1990’s.

The Autumn 2019 Edition of THE BANNER

            The following newsletter (Volume 33, #1) is published by Andrew W. Hartsook.  I feel that it is important to put forth so that Christian Scientists can wake up to the error being manifested within the material organization.  I switched some paragraphs around because I felt it was a better order for them.  {My interpolations will be in these type of brackets.}

HISTORY LESSON

OF…

1943, 1948, 1991, 1995, and 2019

            The following is from Volume 32, #4, summer 2019 THE BANNER by Andrew W. Hartsook.  Before I begin I would like to explain that Bliss Knapp was a personal student of Mary Baker Eddy’s.  He understood who she was and her place in Bible prophecy, and he never forgot it.  Unfortunately, the Board of Directors were not wanting the Truth about Mary Baker Eddy to be published by Knapp.   {My interpolations will be in this type of bracket.}

Saturn 5

            Saturn 5 is the name of the rocket type used for the moon missions.  The first rocket launched on November 9, 1967 and the last rocket was used on May 15, 1973.  The most popular use of Saturn 5 is the one that launched on July 16, 1969.  Saturn was an old god of mythology; it is also the name of the sixth planet in our solar system.  Being that it is sixth in order means that it symbolically stands for the sixth synonym for God (in the Word and Science order) – Truth.  The number 5 is symbolic for the fifth synonym for God – Life.  So you have Truth and Life together reaching out for the moon.

There Is Only One Christ

            I have received comments that I am wrong in stating that Mary Baker Eddy is the Second Coming of Christ, because she stated that Christian Science is the Second Coming of Christ, and that she makes it clear that there is only one Christ.  Am I wrong to state that Mary Baker Eddy, instead of Christian Science, is the Second Coming of Christ?

TAROT CARDS’ SPIRITUAL MEANING

            Pamela Colman Smith was the designing artist of the Rider-Waite Deck Tarot Cards.  According to the box that the cards came in she was “under the direction of Arthur Edward Waite”.  They were with the Order of the Golden Dawn and this particular deck came out in 1910.  “Waite was able to restore in great part the original symbolic meanings that had been lost or changed in the passage of time.  There are those who say that the symbols had been deliberately changed, in some cases to throw the Roman Church off the track and prevent the priests from appropriating the Tarot’s verities for their own purposes.”[1]
            “The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was founded in England in 1886 as a result of the discovery and deciphering of some ancient manuscripts on occult initiation.”[2]  I do not pretend to know what this group really did, or how they thought along spiritual lines, but the word “occult” simply means:  “to hide from sight, conceal”[3].  Somehow Tarot and Qabalistic (also Kabalah or Cabala) Symbolism are tied together, and when we come to the Rider Deck, it may be more closely tied together than the average person realizes.  (And I have serious doubts that people who read the cards for fortune telling have the slightest idea what the Cards are really even presenting symbolically.)  What I mean by this is that there is a definite KEY CARD – the Ten (or X) of Pentacles (or Coins).  On this card are ten pentacle coins and they are placed on the card in order to represent the ten Spheres on the Kabalah Tree of Life.  This KEY CARD is useful in understanding the rest of the deck, for with its use you know what is placed on the card is found to be located for a specific sphere or a particular path of the Tree.  So in order to really understand the symbolism of the Tarot one must become familiar with the Kabalah Tree of Life Matrix.  I believe that this would take many years for someone to accomplish!  I have not really wanted to dedicate myself to this particular study, but I do find it quite interesting.

Starflower of Boston – Part 4

THE WORD AS SCIENCE – “CHRISTIAN SCIENCE versus SPIRITUALISM”

TRUTH {Christian Science} versus ERROR {spiritualism}

Second version of Truth versus Error

Today, as oft, away from sin
            Christ summons thee:
Truth pleads to-night:  Just take Me in!
            No mass for me!

Scriptural basis:
            Behold I stand at the door, and knock, if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. — Christ Jesus.

CHRISTIANITY AS THE CHRIST – “SCIENCE OF BEING”


CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING

First Edition

Christian Science Healing

Christian Science Healing (with the bearded man and white mantle)

Christ was not crucified — that doom
            Was Jesus’ part;
For Sharon’s rose must bud and bloom
            In human heart.*

Forever present, bounteous, free,
            Christ comes in gloom;
And aye, with grace towards you and me,
            For health makes room.

* “God was manifest in the flesh.” — St. Paul.  {Christ is the manifestation of God.}

Scriptural basis:
            If Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin but the Spirit [God-likeness] is life because of righteousness. St. Paul.

            But such as I have, give I thee:  In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. — St. Peter.
