“The experiments of 1901 were far from encouraging ...we saw that the calculations upon which all
flying-machines had been based were unreliable, and that all
were simply groping in the dark. Having set out with absolute
faith in the existing scientific data, we were driven to doubt
one thing after another, till finally, after two years of
experiment, we cast it all aside, and decided to rely entirely
upon our own investigations. Truth and error were so intimately
mixed as to be indistinguishable.” -

Kitty Hawk, North Carolina
29 major Christian Dogmas or Doctrines contradicted or not espoused
by the J-person where there is significant reason to believe differently
- The primary principle concerning our relationship to God espoused by
the world’s major religions, including Christianity, is that the creator is
superior and transcendent to us as human beings. The ultimate blasphemy
is to think in terms of equality. The J-person put the lie to
this by his life, behavior, and message and clearly offered equality to
us. His favorite term for himself was "son of man", which means human
being. He called us sons, daughters, friends, and after the resurrection
called his father our father.
2. Sin -
This Mars rooted word literally means as a verb “to miss the mark”, and as
a noun "the distance struck from the mark". Christianity applies this
legalistically, meaning to fail to obey the law adequately or misbehave. The J-person
primarily used the Greek word "amartia", which means missing the mark in
terms of understanding, and
applied it to our concept and understanding of God, and secondarily to our communication
and behavior that reinforces the wrong concepts. This is a profound difference!
Authoritative Scripture - The J-person made it abundantly clear that we
should not be listening to Moses and the prophets, but to him. He quoted
ancient scripture inside and outside of the Torah, the prophets, and the
writings canonized by Judaism. And he felt free to disagree with Moses and the prophets.
- The J-person did not teach that there was a trinity of living beings.
His statement that we can pray with the authority of the Son, the
Father, and the effective spirit or attitude does NOT justify thinking
there is a trinity of ultimate "God beings". Such
concept and teaching comes ultimately or originally from the worship of
the trimurti, the ancient aligned trinity of planets seen from earth, i.e. Mars, Venus, and Saturn.
5. Holy Spirit
- Whatever the Holy Spirit is, it is not a living being but its role is
to lead us into “all the truth” and “teach us all things”, It definitely
is not synonymous with Jimminy Cricket, and the word "spirit" should be thought of
being primarily equivalent to "attitude", and the Holy Spirit
equivalent to "God Spirit" or the "I-am-a-god Attitude".
6. The Father
- The father of the J-person on earth is NOT another pre-existent individual but is the family
of families of all unfallen human
beings in the universe, using their collective consciousness as the
vessel holding all knowledge and power, including the essence of the
Originator during the two times he was not alive.
7. Heaven -
The J-person primarily used the phrase “kingship of the heavens”, and taught
that this was not a place in the universe nor some alternate, but a state of being, a state
of having fulfillment, empowerment, safety, immortality,
equality, unity and society.
- the J-person NEVER baptized anyone with water, and tried to change our
concept of this empty and meaningless physical rite or ceremony by
claiming that he came to baptize with fire, spirit, and the truth.
9. Ecclesia versus
Church - Did not the J-person say, "He that hates his life shall find it"?
What reasonable person could not hate their life, beleaguered by evil
vicissitudes, subject to pain and suffering, doomed to age, decay and die,
and in such a world of woe? An ecclesia is a responsible group of mature people
cognizant of the conditions in which they find themselves. They are “called out” by
a great need to come together and discuss the issues and make important
choices. They do NOT just continue to endure or to wait for change or
for some agency to save them. The ecclesia that the J-person was talking about
decides to listen to him, understand him fully and follow his instructions, something that has
not yet been done.
10. Hell - The word and concept of Hell is a construct of morbid imagination by
unhinged religious fanatics and
fiction writers, and is not found in the teachings of the J-person. The idea
of physical torture from God as punishment for “sinners” on top of the
suffering they have already experienced on this earth, the aging and
dying “that no man can hope to shun” is barbaric and macabre—so bizarre and absurd that
it is a major insult not only to God but to a reasonable person’s intelligence. Statements made
by the J-person which referred to Gehenna, a literal canyon used as a refuse dump where the
prophecy was literally fulfilled, are
unjustifiably interpreted as Hell. The J-person’s statements about Hades, a word
that means “the unseen realm” are also unjustifiably interpreted as Hell.
Consequently, Jesus gave NO support for this idea!
11. The Judgment - The first, present judgment on us, the judgment of death, is already
automatic and cannot be further imposed but can only be avoided. As in, “You will just die in your sins,
unless you believe.” Our forefathers inaugurated the judgment on us by
their separation from the rest of the unfallen humans in the universe.
Unfair? Evil isn't fair to anyone. If it were "fair", it wouldn't be evil! What's fair is that we can void and escape this judgment by becoming
intellectually responsible and listening to and understanding Jesus.
12. The Punishment - The punishment of the ages—this does NOT mean
LASTING for all time but just means the GREATEST of all time—takes place after the
resurrection, and is the time when, in the full light of truth and
understanding, people will judge themselves and suffer the intense agony of
regret and remorse according to the full measure of their behavior and impact in this life.
13. Devil -
The concept of the devil is not found in the Old Testament, and the New
Testament Greek word
means divider, accuser, or slanderer. The original devil was the
original lie, the IDEA of
inequality that started the long slide of our human family to become
more and more corrupt, and end in all but hopeless sinful
14. Angels as
superior beings - The word angel means message/messenger, and any
living-being messengers from the unfallen realm would be human even though
they be extraterrestrial. Even the passages in BOTH Bible
Testaments use angel and man interchangeably in places. What perverse thinking
insists that they belong to a race of superior beings? There is no higher life form in
the universe than human.
15. Nature of
God - The psychological nature makeup of the originator of all things is, was, and always
will be totally and only human. The false, so-called “dual nature” doctrine is
misunderstanding that the word “divine” means non-human instead of
its true meaning of
“healing” or restoring. Unfallen humans in the universe are all fully empowered and
immortal, but that
does not make them non-human.
Damnation - There is nothing that cannot be changed, healed, or
cured with the full understanding of the truth about god. The idea of
eternal punishment is barbaric and macabre and one of the ultimate manifestations of sin, that
being a wrong concept of the character and psyche of god.
17. The Sabbath
- The seventh day of rest was initially instituted not by God but by man in
commemoration of the chief planet god Saturn, the golden age, and the
creation of the new age of timekeeping. It was adopted by the
Hebrews as a major aspect of their culture and worship posture as a
symbol of future restoration. Nothing about this holiday and its manmade
strictures has anything to do with any law, requirement or demand from God.
- Probably the only being the Original Creator ever personally created alone was the second
human being, a mate. As the number of humans increases in the universe,
the level of empowerment and creativity goes up. However, there is no reason to believe that unfallen beings played any role in the creation of animals and the
predatory competition system of nature that we experience on earth. The
most reasonable position is that fallen, perverse yet still empowered
man designed or created these.
Parousia/Second Coming - The Parousia was the personal public
presence of the J-person including his crucifixion and resurrection, the focal point
of all time. There will be
no return of the J-person as king sitting on a throne in the sky surrounded by
ranks and ranks of angels. Such a proposition has no real basis in the words
spoken by the J-person, and would be completely counter to the character of
god, and would be more in keeping with a grandstand Hollywood type production.
Not God's style!
Resurrection Agency - Those people that come into unity and thereby
inaugurate the resolution of things on earth will choose the order of
people being resurrected and will do the resurrecting. This is the
business of our own human family, NOT that of the J-person or the rest of unfallen humanity.
Marriage as a legal construct inaugurated by form and ceremony is
human institution, and the ethics of such are highly colored and
affected by our fallen human condition. Marriage without love is
tantamount to adultery, whether or not certain words were spoken or
22. Rites and
Ceremonies Rites and ceremonies are at best symbolic, and have no efficacy
once the underlying reality is understood. These things quickly become
idolatry, and as currently practiced are
husks, and serve no purpose other than to entrench sin. A sure sign of a
false religion is ritual focus on symbolism.
The J-person asked the disciples to think about and remember what he said every
time they ate and drank after the last supper up until the crucifixion
and the resurrection. He did not intend to
institute any future ongoing sacraments concerned with foot washing and unleavened bread or wine.
See Rites, Rituals,
Ceremonies and Sacraments
Prayer, as practiced by the man not believing the truth, is demeaning
and is little better than begging or an attempt at naked manipulation. This kind of
prayer only serves to entrench sin, which is exactly what the J-person told
Thomas when he said, "If you fast and pray, you will bring sin upon
25. Fasting Occasional fasting to improve health
may be judicious, but to do so to earn
spiritual points or merit is sacrilege, and serves only to entrench sin,
a wrong concept of God.
26. Death of the J-person the J-person is
not suicidal nor fixated on death as a solution, and he did NOT come to
this earth to die. He came to save the cosmos or cosmic system, the universal system of
equality, love, trust and unity set up by him in the first place. For
this goal, he came PREPARED to die on earth AS A LAST RESORT. When no
one listened with understanding and belief, and the character of the
to be demonstrated beyond all doubt for the entire universe including us, he clearly
provoked the unreasonable authorities—Sadducees and Pharisee—into
coercing the Roman authority into
crucifying him. Even he balked at taking this last step without
agonizing with the father and checking to see if anything else could be
said or done to avoid it.
27. Understanding God Why
would the creator create beings with which to fellowship that were
incapable of understanding him? Was he incapable of doing this? Isn't
understanding what we all desire of friendship and fellowship? Isn't this the primary
requisite of a good relationship? After the J-person came and "showed us the
father" and "made him plain", after he said, "And this IS salvation,
that they understand you and he whom you have sent", and since "God" put
on the great demonstration, the great "Parousia of coming into
display and prominence", the great unveiling or "Apocalypse" culminating at the crucifixion and resurrection,
we should be understanding God better than we understand each other!
28. Jesus as eternal center of attention The doctrine
that Jesus will be the center of attention throughout all eternity is
widespread in Christendom, and another one of the most pernicious
doctrines holding sway. Jesus would be revolted by this vision! He may
be the most admired and respected person throughout eternity, but he has
no desire to monopolize being he center of attention. He may submit to
the occasional loving "roast", but probably only once. His gracious
character and demeanor have NOT changed from when he was on earth, and
his real joy is to revel in the glory of his children. You will always
be comfortable and delighted to be in his presence.
29. Turn the other cheek versus self-defense When Jesus
advised his followers to turn the other cheek, that was in the context
of dealing with the Roman soldiers in defusing an insult situation that
could escalate into more serious violence. 'The thinking that Jesus
taught or fostered martyrdom is ludicrous. There is nothing wrong with
self defense. The problem is that the message of Jesus was
ultimately not received, nor understood and embraced, and after his death
and resurrection only a small number retained his previous protection and their
lives. The rest universally did NOT stay under this protection, and were
all destined to die one way or another. Jesus could not change this
fate of the people unilaterally, but he and the Father have no desire to see the better
people oppressed or slaughtered by the worse. It is seldom admitted, mentioned
seldom even understood that just before the end
playing out he said to his followers in Luke 22:35,36
"When I sent you
out with no purse or bag or sandals, did you lack anything?" They said,
"Nothing." He said to them, "But now, let him who has a purse take it,
and likewise a bag. And let him who has no sword sell his mantle and buy
Surely, the thinking of most of Christendom is wrong on almost all
