THE ORACULAR GNŌSIS OF CHRISTIANITY
CHRISTIANITY RESTORED TO ITS HELLENIC (OR PRIMITIVE) FORM RADICALLY DIFFERS FROM ORTHODOX COMMENTARY OF THEOLOGISTS. SHOWS A BEAUTY AND SUBLIMITY MODERN CHRISTIANS CAN ADOPT TO RESHAPE THE TRADITION.
‘The Oracular Gnōsis of Christianity’ (project), inspired by James Morgan Pryse, will be a radically different interpretation of the Christian religion. It will be based on the Ancient Hellenic Philosophy, the teletai (mystery observances), and its language.
The text called “New Testament,” is not a “sacred” scripture, but a collated one, more in common with the Greek allegorical dramas and prose poems, than a historical document.
The New Testament is largely a work of fiction, this will contend, and that history has been carried on for over a millennia, under a forgery, and fiction. Albeit, a fiction, the “new religion” of the classical world was largely built on a fiction, which rests on the Mysteries of Initiation.
It syncretised the Hellenic teletai with a superficially coloured Judean mythos or pseudo-history, and through semblances with the writings of Philo Judaeus (Philōn Judaios).
The New Testament was written by men, who forged a new religion, as many syncretisms of the time, that were not built on historical figures, but ‘literary types.’ To understand what Christianity is about, there are needed a basic knowledge of the tradition, lineage, and parlance of two things: 1) the Sōd of the Jews, and 2) the Teletai of “the Greeks,” thus not just the Hellenes, but also other nations.
The facts that will force you to observe, or examine, your own private practice. The knowledge will affect how you redirect your introspective concentration, in contemplative, as in daily living. The Hellenic philosophy, as with Platonism is infused with a knowledge, about both psychic, and mental discipline. It is the basis of the mysteries.
Combined with the ethics, dietary observations, and practical mysticism, it forms or reconstructs the classical formulae of the early Christians. Those who were termed “Chrēstian,” practice the Christian way, towards Christōs — the Logos, or divine Nous, and may not even be of the religion. It is through the adytum of the practioners inner god (daimōn), by which the man gains the power to conquer the self. The Greeks called this power in their allegorical dramas and poems, Arēs (Lat. Mars), whom was then, checked by Athēna (wisdom).
The drama hides instructions, as well as the keys to the symbols underlying the Christian fable. It is possible, not under the Aristotelian philosophy though, that the man was capable of learning the faculty of apprehending truth, without the aid of inductive reasoning. Plato simply termed it, “Intuition.”
