This book shows with disarming honesty how the dominant Christian churches have created an image of "salvation" that is in complete opposition to what Jesus actually taught. Jesus taught an inner, mystical path whereby you attain a higher state of consciousness. It is this state of consciousness that is the true "kingdom of God." The author argues that the loss of this path of initiation is the reason so many spiritual people are leaving Christianity behind. It is also a major cause behind the increase in mental health problems. Modern people cannot find a deeper purpose for life in Christianity or in materialism. This book will show you how to look beyond official Christian doctrines and discover the mystical path taught by Jesus to his disciples. You will learn: -How to see a direct connection between Jesus and yourself How to start following the mystical path taught by Jesus -How and why the true path was lost in human power struggles -How the spiritual path can help you rise above the human consciousness and find a deeper meaning to life -How the inner path of Jesus can help you find answers to your deepest questions How the true teachings of Jesus can help you meet your psycho-spiritual needs in this challenging age -How to heal psychological wounds and make peace with Jesus

Read from the Book

Was Jesus a prophet? Well, he certainly did make one prediction that has proven to be incredibly accurate: "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword." According to various estimates, there are 20-30,000 different Christian churches and sects. They have a great variety of doctrines and interpretations-many of which are mutually exclusive. If Jesus did indeed come to stir the pot,he has been remarkably successful. In fact, the only topic that is more controversial than Jesus is the topic of God. The result is that no matter what you say about Jesus, you can be sure someone will be violently opposed to it. This meansit is predictable that some people will have a strong reaction to the title of this series. Some might say: "How dare you think you have the right to reinvent Jesus? Our church has the only truth about Jesus, and you have no right to come here and say people are free to reinvent Jesus in the modern world. That is blasphemy and will send you straight to hell."My response to that sentiment is that such people apparently don't know much about the history of their religion. If you do know the basic facts about the history of Christianity, you know that the Jesus we have inherited is not the Jesus who walked the earth 2,000 years ago. Instead, we have been handed down a Jesus who was invented in the ancient world, especially after Christianity became the official religion of the Roman empire. The Jesus who was invented in the ancient world was clearly designed based on what was common knowledge back then. Perhaps this explains why the ancient Jesus no longer has the same appeal to people in the modern world? Why wouldn't it be perfectly logical to reinvent Jesus based on what we know in the modern world? Why wouldn't we reinvent Jesus so that his teachings can better address the psycho-spiritual needs we have in the modern world?
