the path of Christ

Hello and welcome back to our site. We want to speak about the path of Christ today. It is not an easy one to walk, but a necessary one in order to reach spiritual fulfillment.

For many, politics and religion are two very volatile and difficult aspects to speak about to others. Everyone is entitled to their own path back home. How did we get all of these different viewpoints of God if there is only one God? It is because we are all on different levels of development. Where we are on our developmental level, puts us with the people that are at that same level. That is why when we grow, we move onward to new people and new belief systems. Jesus taught just that. He came in and challenged the beliefs and customs of the original religion of the Jews. He taught truth, and yet it is still misunderstood in today’s time. He taught peace and understanding, and yet people still threaten and go to war. He taught love, and yet people attack and separate themselves from one another. He was betrayed, as many of us are.

How many wars and disputes are we to have until we learn to accept people as they are and encourage their spiritual growth, even if we don’t understand it? Christ said, “Do not fear, only believe”. The path of Christ may have been difficult, but he set the standard for us. Spirituality is about growing within ourselves, overcoming false programs and coming closer to God. It’s not a relationship that involves others; it’s about our own development. Others are simply used to teach us the lessons that pull us closer to God. We would encourage you to stay true to your path, no matter how difficult it seems to be. It’s not about pleasing other people; it’s about pleasing God and staying true to yourself. There is a silver lining to every storm cloud.

Remember, kind words are so important. Stop looking at the differences between you and others, and stop allowing these differences to scare you. Look at one another as if you are school mates in different classes. Lift up each other and be peaceful. Galatians 5:22-23, ‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law’.
