“You Are Not My Church Member”

(Church: Google Image)

I was minding my business one Sunday afternoon when a neigbour told me “Kaycee I am amazed at what happened in the church today.” Curious, I asked “what happened”? (Side note: Kaycee is my nickname. In Nigeria, people whose names are Kingsley are called Kaycee/KC) And then she began to narrate the events:

“Today, as service was going on in the church a woman came to the church. She sat down, after the service she went to meet the Pastor of the church; a woman. After explaining her ordeal to the Pastor, the Pastor asked her which she worships. The woman told her. And the Pastor responded to her “Go and meet your Pastor to solve your problem. You are not my church member. I have worked for many people, once they get solution to their problems; they never come back to my church again.” When my neighbour finished telling me this, I told her: “that Pastor is an end-time Pastor.”

My neighbour started telling me what happened in that particular church. She said, as the “woman of God” was preaching, she was being followed—guarded back and forth as though she may not strike her foot against any stone. Can you guess what she wore? Trouser! Cocooned with negative ego and cockiness she was. “Hmmmm, so you are able to endure those nasty scenes”? If I were you; I would leave immediately. I told my neighbour. “Right there in the church sachet of pure water we buy for N10 were being sold for N50 while a stick of candle we buy for N60 was sold for N100. I was dumbfounded.  “The desperate members were all buying and even borrowing money to buy”! My neighbour said. Nowadays, people no longer go to church to serve God. They go to church to look for “miracles.” To be honest, that is not a true worship!

The last time I checked my Bible, most of the people Jesus healed in the Bible did not become his disciples. Examples: blind Bartimaeus, Jairus daughter, the Syrophoenician woman, the woman with the issue of blood, the ten lepers, the possessed man that was chained in the cave and many others. Jesus’ disciples did not do these things nowadays “men of God” are doing. Are they really men of God? I read a very famous Nigerian pastor say “I am at your service.” https://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2019/12/01/i-am-at-your-service-t-b-joshua-tells-david-lyon/. We all know that most politicians do not follow the right procedure in entering office. How can a “man of God” be at the service of someone who does not have good reputation? A governor whose reputation is not guaranteed—with no example of a good leadership.

The prophets of God in the Bible never asked for a dime from people they healed. For example, Prophet Elisha healed Naaman for free. Jesus’ disciples never demanded for seed before they healed those that came to them or the ones they met. Personally, Jesus is a man I love and respect. His teachings and wisdoms have also contributed to my spiritual awakening and personal development. Yes, his handsomeness alone can dissolve mountains!

Many people who are calling themselves “Men of God” or “Pastors” are not actually doing what Jesus did. If you listen to these modern Pastors they say things like “sowing of seeds,” and such. I begin to wonder, all the people Jesus healed in the Bible he never asked for a dime from them. Why do these nowadays Pastors put a price tag just because they want to pray for their church members?

I left church many years ago; I ran away from Church. I CHOSE Spirituality over Religion. And Jesus said to worship God in spirit and in truth not according to religion or religious denominations). Honestly, I do not know how a quirky, maverick, magical, woo-woo loving, positively rebellious wild child like Kingsley can be tied down with some Religious Doctrines. IMPOSSIBLE!

The most painful part of it is that “Christians” (or let me say churchgoers) have given their power away to a person (Pastor) who they worship. If you go to church today, you will notice that church members worship their Pastors….it is sad that people no longer remember that they are Divine. You will see someone showering gifts to “men of God” with the intention and belief that he or she will be blessed by giving to a “man of God.”

Here is what Morihei Ueshiba said about Religion

“Religion is just show business begotten by the megalomania of its ruling class and created to fleece money from a crowd of stupid (m)asses.”

“Well, why stupid?”

“Because these people become very limited in their knowledge. It is constantly being drummed into their heads that they should listen only to the speeches of their religious leaders, they should read only their literature and stick only to their herd, because all other religions are wrong.”

Sensei I A conversation of Sensei and his students (Sensei I, The Primordial of Shambala)

The TRUTH is, we are all children of God. We are Human +Divine: one with God, Goddess, Angels and Universe. Just because someone wears a suit and carries himself/herself with a so-called piety of “holier than thou” does not mean they are better than you. God can use anybody to carry out His will. God used a prostitute to rescue the Israelite men when the wall of Jericho was to be destroyed. Her name is Rahab (Joshua 2:7)

  1. I can’t speak for most or any, only myself. I personally do not worship the Pastor or Preist, or Saints. I petition the Saints to pray for me as I would ask anyone else to please pray for me. My worship, my song in praise, my devotion, my loyalty my soul is Tomas for Jesus Christ. Am I perfect, no. But everyday I try to show the Lord that I will help anyone, I care for everyone, I help the poor, I take kids in, I lead by example and I try to make the Lord proud of my actions daily. If or when I falter and catch myself I apologize immediately and ask for forgiveness. I love to be a peacemaker. All we can do is realize we are all in this together, we are all Gods children, this isn’t a race. The Lord would like not one left behind, so reach out and help someone else. Amen We are all part, of one:)

    1. Dear Kelly, thank you for that nice comment. I understand what you mean. But it is so painful, frustrating and disappointing how Church and Spirituality has been turned into “Business.”

      “I see God as an Infinite Energy of Light which manifests in different ways and forms. Hence being “all-encompassing.” Kingsley Osajie.

      1. Having an interesting conversation with a Catholic woman who believes in the virgin birth of Jesus son of Zeus.

        Translating words from language to language … the new language does not define the terms translated from the previous language. For example: ברית translated as “covenant”. Wrong. ברית means an “oath alliance”. For example the “United States”, Hebrew employs ברית, “the alliance among the States”. Lincoln held that the States having once joined the alliance could not thereafter leave that alliance. To cut\כרת a ברית\alliance requires swearing an oath in the Name of HaShem! Covenant does not mean ברית. Why? Because the Xtian bible translations never, not even once, does any Xtian translation of their bibles, ever bring the Name revealed in the 1st commandment!

        The Xtian translators of the Bible, they “translated” the Name revealed in the 1st commandment at Sinai. As did the elder brother of Moshe. Aaron translated the Spirit Name of HaShem unto a word אלהים\Gods. The Xtian translations of their bibles made the exact same error of judgment. Just as the Golden Calf defines avodah zarah – mistranslated into the word “idolatry”. Avodah zarah literally means “strange worship”. This term refers to the avodah zarah practiced by Par’o and Egypt. Hence the 1st commandment “I am HaShem(the Name: no word can pronounce the Name with human lips. All attempts to convert the Name into words: Yahweh, Jehovah, Lord, Allah etc etc etc duplicates to an exact tee the error of the golden calf avodah zarah), who brought you out of Egypt.

        ישעיה ז:יד translated as Isaiah 7:14. The Hebrew T’NaCH has no chapters and verse like as does the bible translations. Rather sugiot, translated as “subchapters”. העלמה הרה וילדת בן a pregnant young girl shall birth a son. The Gemarah of Sanhedrin mocks the pathetic biblical translation of עלמה into “virgin girl”. Jewish culture and customs during those times, a father could marry his young daughter without asking her consent till she reached the age of 12 1/2 years. The 6 month period before she reached the age of 13 years, the father could marry off his daughter – with her consent. After the girl reached the age of 13, the father could not marry off his daughter with or without her consent. The Talmud, specifically the Gemara of קידושין\kiddushin/ refers to a young woman, 13, above age by which a father could unilaterally marry her off, by the name בוגרת\bogeret.

        עלמה refers to a “marriageable girl”. עלמא means “world”. The Gemarah of Sanhedrin mocks the new testament error of translation. It writes: אמסר עלמא בידא דטפשאי\translated as: “the world was handed over to fools”. The Hebrew language has a mathematical precision to it. [[[“”” In the ancient understanding, a young girl was either a virgin or a slut. “””]]]. No. Wrong again. A married woman who got herself pregnant from another man other than her husband, the child produced the Torah calls a mamzer. Even to the 10th generation that child excluded from the Jewish community. Greek mythology Zeus came as a bull and seduced the Phoenician princess, Europa. Greek culture permitted beastiality and homosexuality, and adultery.

        Torah law refers to all three, as an abomination, worthy of the death penalty. So no. The Greek translation to virgin — just a bad translation. Oral Torah logic does not permit cherry picking “verses” out of the surrounding contexts of their sugia\sub-chapter. The Gospel and new testament letters of Paul and others, define their obtuse theologies by means of cherry picking verses and taking them completely out of their original contexts. Its most probably for this reason the biblical translators expunged the T’NaCH Order of sugiot, and replaced it with the alien Order of chapters and verses.

        The study of T’NaCH and Talmud follows the identical set of Oral Torah rules. These Oral Torah rules of logic, the church totally denies. Hence when the Muslims invaded and conquered Spain during the latter days of the Dark Ages, the rediscovery of the ancient Greek philosophies, specifically the writings of Plato and Aristotle took Xtian Europe by storm. The church embraced the discovery of ancient Greek logic and this rediscovery opened the gates unto the renaissance of the church and Xtian Europe.

        Jewish culture and customs, which predated the new testament by more than 150 years, known as the Maccabean revolt 167-160 BCE, commemorates the Jewish festival of Hanukkah – the festival of lights. Jews light the lights of Hanukkah to this very day! What do these lights represent? The dedication of the Will of the Jewish people to never interpret the Written Torah with any other logic system format other than the Oral Torah which Moshe the prophet heard directly from HaShem at Horev – 40 days after the tumah of the golden calf. The Yom Tov of Chag Yoma, translated as Yom Kippur/the Day of Atonement sanctifies the revelation of the Oral Torah logic system which the prophet Moshe heard directly from HaShem.

        .ה’ ה’ אל רחום וחנון ארך אפים ורב חסד ואמת נוצר חסד לאלפים נושא עון ופשע וחטאה ונקה לא ינקה (שמות ל”ד-ו’ ז)

        Translated as (Exodus 34: 6,7). The revelation of these 13 middot\attributes defines the revelation of the Oral Torah at Horev. This logic format revealed to Moshe to permit him and all generations after him to interpret the Written Torah revelation of the first 2 Commandments, the revelation of these two commandments, defines the Written Torah revelation at Sinai.

        What about the 10 commandments? The Torah compares directly with the Talmud. Both texts highly edited. The Mishna represents the most authoritative codification of Jewish Oral law. What confuses Goyim alien outsiders who know nothing of Jewish culture and customs, they confuse law with logic. The Mishna writes in a Case\Rule Common law style. British courts likewise base their legal system upon “common law”. Common law stands upon precedents. This brings us to the Gemarah commentary made upon the Mishna. The Gemarah learns the Case\Rule Mishnaic common law by way of bringing halachic precedents from other sources. The Mishna has 6 Primary Orders. The Gemara brings precedents from any of these 6 Orders, which either the Mishna or the Gemarah address.

        This discipline of learning Jewish law, it likewise equally applies to the study of T’NaCH Primary sources of literature. Clearly the T’NaCH predates the writings of both the Mishna (written about 210 CE and the Gemarah sealed by rabbis Ashey and Ravina in about 450 CE) [CE – common era]. For obvious reasons Jews do not date history through the Goyim BC\AC none sense. (Prefer the term Goy, a term of respect over the Xtian word of contempt “pagan”). The Roman\Greek myth of Jesus son of Zeus, Jews have rejected for more than 2000 years.

        The sugia which contains your ‘virgin birth’ stupidity none sense: translated as Isaiah 7:10 -17. To repeat: the Hebrew T’NaCH has nor employs chapters and verses. Just as the Oral Torah logic codifications of Mishna & Gemarah, known as the Talmud, strictly relies upon precedents, so too does the study of T’NaCH sugiot, stritly rely upon precedents. This discipline of learning defines Jewish scholarship made upon both T’NaCH and Talmudic primary sources.

        דיני נפשות translated as Capital Crimes cases, all learn from the 2nd Commandment of the revelation of the Torah at Sinai. By the commandment of Moshe the prophet, to try any and all Capital Crimes cases, requires at least two witnesses or perhaps three witnesses, but never only one witness. Monetary cases, Torts Courts as opposed to the Sanhedrin Courtrooms, they can make a judicial ruling by relying on the evidence given by one witness. But in all cases where a man stands trial for his life, the Sanhedrin courts only judge the case if 2 or more witnesses testify.

        Faith qualifies as דיני נפשות. Therefore to learn the k’vanna, translated as intent, of this sugia which Goyim translators have so perverted and mauled in order to “prove” their virgin birth none sense stupidity — this obligates me to bring two precedents from the Book of Isaiah by which to grasp a depth interpretation\understanding (The Talmud defines בינה translated as “understanding” as the skill which can discern like from like) of the questioned sugia of Isaiah.

        First precedent: Isaiah 26:11 – 15. Torah logic learns through classic comparison and contrast as does the study of all literature. The attributes\middot of your sugia compares to the middot\attributes of this sugia. Specific vs. general. Your sugia makes direct mention of the horrors of war, the destruction of g’lut\exile brought by Assyria. This sugia testifies that whereas the Assyrian king mocked HaShem as G-d, the people of the kingdom of Yechuda cling to doing mitzvot לשמה. Translated as we worship the revelation of the Name revealed in the 1st Commandment of Sinai. Hence the avodah zarah of translating the Spirit Name unto words.

        Second precedent: Isaiah 28:14 – 22. This precedent contains two sugiot. The first 28: 14, 15. This sugia describes Jews who have abandoned faith in HaShem. They compare to the Assyrian king who mocked HaShem as the oath sworn brit G-d. The 2nd sugia teaches a mussar of g’lut. Through g’lut\exile, HaShem sifts and purifies the chosen Cohen bnai brit people. This sugia stands upon the foundation of the oath brit sworn at the brit cut between the pieces wherein HaShem first cut a brit with Avram. There HaShem informed Avram (Avram had no children at that time), his future born seed would go into g’lut\exile. And from there HaShem would bring them out and unto the oath sworn lands. HaShem brought Israel out of Egypt. HaShem revealed the revelation of the Torah at both Sinai and Horev. All Jewish faith stands upon this oath brit foundation. The first word of the Torah בראשית contains ברית אש. Fire\אש refers to the oath sworn at the brit cut between the opposing Yatzirot, commonly referred to as the brit between the pieces.
