The Bible is a melange of the scriptures of all religions preceding it. Scripture is interpreted according to the level of intellect doing the interpreting. Everyone who has ever arrived at an understanding of scripture which to them is a revelation (not 'the' understanding) feels they have been the recipient of a superior spiritual anointing by God..
Those whose minds have become Christed, NEVER, EVER TALK ABOUT IT. Those relative few having reached Christ mind level and have ascended to complete identity with their Source, Space never flaunt it. They realise they are a strand of loving energy focused within the firey will of God (to borrow a line from a Buddhist meditation), the Word frequency. They don't brag about their accomplishment.
The Bible is interpreted by three different quality minds.
First, by those who's minds are polarised in their Primitive stage of development. Through no fault of their own they are closed minded and superstitious. A literal interpretation of scripture makes perfect sense to them. It could be said their Christ within is somewhere still in gestation, not (as yet) having been brought to term. These are the Fundies, not only of Christianity, but also of Islamic and Eastern Fundamentalists. This group called Christian Fundamentalists equates to their Islamic Fundamentalist counterparts who are also polarised in their Primitive stage of evolution. Fundamentalist Christians and their brother zealots , Muslims, have much in common with the ignorant, supersttious lower mental Castes in Hinduism who practice Bhakti Yoga. Each-all are focussed in their Sacral Chakra.
Next are those whose Christ within is somewhere between its birth and into the River Jordan baptism. These are the modern, educated Christians. They interpret the Bible literally but find esoteric interpretation somewhat interesting. These are the more intelligent, more highly evolved who, for example no longer believe Hell to have an address. But both these two groups remain Esotericists. These are the Mystics of Christianity and equate to Mystics of all other religions. They are polarised in their Solar Plexus Chakra...their emotional Center. They are making their Baptism in their River Jordan; water being a symbol for the sometimes stormy, sometimes placid, emotional human nature. Long B-c, this initiation was called in the East,"The Entering of the Stream." These units of mind are sill controlled by their emotions as opposed to their minds and are at the very top of their Bhakti Yoga period.
The there is the next group who see a literal interpretation of scripture as ludicrous...laughable. These are the people who've begun their Baptism by Fire. 'Fire is a symbol for God mind (see Hebrews 12:20) They see scripture as being allegory and symbol for the appearence and evolution of mind. They have come under the influence of God mind. Not the Zeus look-a-like of Christianity who sitteth on his divine derriere while His creation goes to He. They have plugged-in to the god spoken of in John 10;34. The god called by my path the Monad. There are, no doubt, other names for this god.This group is polarised in their Ajna Chakra (Center) and are practicing Agni Yoga...the Yoga of mind.
The next group is practicing what is called Raja Yoga. This applies to those who'se mind has become Christedand are inprocess of complete identification with Source...Space. I am so far from this that I don't even have the words to discuss it.
These are the minds which the Bible refers to as having been "quickened." "Quickened" here means (to the Esotericist) the sluggish, dense vibratory frequency of matter having evolved to become the frequency of the Word...God. Whatever that frequency is.
Goodnight all. Old folks gotta go to bed.
