Our relationship with God
Question: How do we overcome the false teaching in Christianity that
Jesus is God, creator of heaven and earth?
問題: 有些基督教義說耶穌就是上帝, 天地的創造者,
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
揚升大師耶穌經由 Kim Michaels 回答 :
I am happy that you are pointing out the falsity in the belief that Jesus
Christ is God and that I have created the entire universe.I can assure you
that the universe was created before I was created. However, the idea
that Jesus Christ is God is not entirely false. This is a very subtle topic that
I could easily write an entire book about, and I might indeed do so in the future.
我可以向你保證, 在我被創造之前 ,
但是 " 耶穌基督是上帝" 這個說法
To give you a very brief explanation, which is simply meant as food for
thought, you must realize that God created everything out of its own
substance and being. Everything is truly God in disguise. Every lifestream
that was ever created was created as an individualization of God.
A young lifestream normally does not recognize that it is an
individualization of God. However, when the lifestream matures it
eventually comes to the full conscious recognition and acceptance that
it is indeed an individualization of God. At the moment the lifestream
reaches this state of enlightenment, the lifestream becomes one with God.
That is why I said, “I and my Father are one.”
然而, 當這個生命體逐漸成熟, 最後終究會
此刻, 這個生命體便達到了開悟的狀態 ,
它與上帝同在, 與上帝成為一 .
這就是為什麼我曾說過 " 我與我父是一".
There is a subtle difference between oneness with God and being God.
I fully recognize myself as an individualization of God. I fully recognize
that I am one with God. However, I also recognize that I am not all that
God is. God, the creator of the universe, is a being with individuality. I
am also a being with individuality, and my individuality is different from
the individuality of the Creator of the universe.
" 與上帝合一" 和" 是上帝本身" 兩者間有微妙的不同.
上主, 宇宙的創造者, 是一個 " 獨特性的存在".
I must tell you that the greatest challenge for a lifestream is to find
a personal understanding of the seeming mystery that you are created
by God, that you are one with God, but that you are also an individual
being. This is something that cannot be explained through words.
我必須告訴你 , 一個生命體最大的挑戰
-- 你是上帝所造 , 你與上帝是一,
However, as a lifestream grows in union with its Christ self, it will
gradually resolve what at lower levels of the path seems to be a
conflict. The sense of separation and conflict springs from the dualistic
mind. As the lifestream puts off the old human and puts on the new
human of the Christ consciousness, the conflict will gradually fade away.
