Why argue with fanatical people? You will only hurt yourself.
Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces. -Matthew 7:6
Discussions and polemics have ruined many spiritual schools. When two individuals argue, what they have is pride and arrogance in their mind; both want to demonstrate their boasted superiority to one another, both have Satan enthroned in their mind. We must always respectfully express our concept and allow our listener the freedom to accept or reject our concept. Everybody is free to think as they please and we cannot exercise power over our neighbor’s mind, because that would be black magic. Intellectual discussion is luciferic and demonic.
We need to have the mind of a child in order to enter into the Major Mysteries. We need to be like children in our minds and hearts. We need to be perfect as our Father who is in heaven is perfect. The great mysteries are not achievable through vain intellectualisms; the Major Mysteries are achievable with the heart of a child. We have known great Masters of the White Lodge who are totally illiterate. -Samael Aun Weor, The Major Mysteries
When atheists or religious people try to argue about my convictions, I chose to remain silent, out of respect for them and for my Being. If people want to follow this teaching, let them do so. If not, it is a waste of time to argue, for arguments are luciferic and demonic. The desire to want to convert another person to believe what we believe is a tremendous defect of sorcery and black magic.
Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.
Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"
How should I handle Christians who are trying to reevangelize me because I no longer attend church? I used to be a Christian, so my social circle consists of them. I had very practical and spiritual expeirences that reduced my suffering and they dismiss it as not being spiritual. Because of Gnosticism I was able to recover from mitochondrial disease--90% of sufferes don't recover! Not only this, my suffering was compounded by sleep apnea and severe insomnia, so I suffered a lot--but I'm healed of these now (sleep apnea is under control). And this particular Christian dismisses my experience as being ingenuine. It's not his place to tell me what I did nor did not experience, because what I experienced saturated my senses and penetrated the core of my being and not his. So how could he possible know what he's talking about? He clings on to what the bible says regarding Jesus being the only way to the father, how would I resposnd to this?
