"  The Good God is the God of all immaterial things (such as light and souls).   The Bad God is the God of all material things, including the world and everything in it.   He, the Devil  has contrived to capture souls and imprison them in human bodies through the process of conception.   As we the Cathars put it, we are all divine sparks, even angels, imprisoned in a tunic of flesh.     


Cathar Tenet

..........................................................................................

 

We are the divine spark of the Good God

protect us from the earthly temptations of the Bad God

by strengthening our inner spirit and prayer

he, the Devil has filled humankind with vexations

to frustrate us from becoming reunited with our benign Creator

his Hell is here on this material plane

we are divine spirits, and he cannot harm us

only lead us astray with false promises and lures

for he is the Counterfeit God

and his way is the Counterfeit Path

we the Cathars are Universalists

and we believe in the ultimate salvation of humanity

all is dualism, light and darkness

and we have not corrupted the Holy Scriptures

like other Imposter Religions have

for our Creed is holy and pure

and we are the Keepers of the Holy Grail

we have been persecuted for Christ

and we have been martyred for Christ

by the Satanic Church and their Satanic torturers

and their abominable Grand Inquisition

we are true to the St John Gospel

and the undefiled teachings of our Master Jesus Christ

and we await in true spirit

for our last Grand Sign

the Greening of the Laurel

Thank you for a glimpse into another spiritual dimension.

((( Peter, your a pioneer of free thinking and bless you ))). I am a Christian and some times I see the fakeness in the church, yet in the time we are in, and I say this from a very intuitive place, that it seems there is something of some kind of baggage in all forms of organized religions. I read people miles away, always have and I know most of all mankind still wherever you go has issues with personal ego. My job is to show you and the world love without conditions. I am not suggesting breaking laws and allow them, I mean, God loves us agape, in a way that most of us don't understand that kind of love. Love is patient, love is kind and millions of other graces. If I am the eyes, hands and feet in this world reflecting the Father, then I have shown what his love truly is without some stuffy form of rules like religion has.I see so much ego world wide mixed with power.When I see it I just know all over again we are human. The sins of the Catholic church should not have happened, yet maybe they were destined to show this world boundarys and not to missuse a religion for it's pride. I think there is too many cults and I do mean cults out there. I think the power of not religion, but the power of holy spirit within us all , along with love towards God and universe are meaningful things. I have seen from the prophets eye says and I embrace wisdom from those that do love.I used to be into all forms of world religions and philosophys. Today, I declair myself Christian but I do not force that on one soul upon earth.I do not see it as better or worse.We all judge and we should not.The fact that anyone is Buddist is just dandy and fine with me.I had been in the past very into Shamism, wicca, and buddist. What did I learn? That something more of a fiath celebrated the Creator. I think the body of Christ ( the Christian ) church, has had some skeletens and has turned me off.The fact that you show freedom shos your true faith. And thanks for all the reviews...God bless you...

The Cathars, the "pure ones" stressed sexual abstinence and full initiates were not even supposed to sleep with their wives. They believed that the spirit had become trapped in the flesh, and that any avoidance of any fleshly pleasures helped to speed its escape. The Cathars were also branded heretical after the Dominicans introduced the rosary as a weapon to win back the image of the Virgin Mary into the control of the orthodox Church. The Cathars were mercilessly exterminated in the Albigensian crusades of the early 13th Century. This is really a great series. Peter!

I too, am enjoying this series, Peter! One of my favorite prayers, begins, "Dear God, source of life of my ancestors, please help and bless us mortals!"

Informative and fascinating, Peter!! Oh the horrors which were wraught under the banner of Christ. While I beleive that yes, we have the spark of divinity within, I don't see us as "imprisoned" in the flesh--rather that matter is a vehicle for learning and isn't inherently evil. These writes help make us aware of our own beliefs...

Another great offering Peter! I love this series ,so informative. I believe we are all that divine spark and that is what will be left when all who believe get their immortal bodies. We will be stripped of the earthly influence and whatever corruption it embodied.

Well- and faithfully-said! While I cannot bring myself to believe in an all-powerful god {a loving and all-knowing Creative Spirit,
y e s}, but the Devil is a Bad God indeed. Impossible not to see that Evil is very much with us. Busy making counterfeits!! Thank you for the interesting and thought-provoking eye-view. Keep the faith! With respect and admiration, 'Pea' <3

Peter,
When we have faith, we know the worthiness of our Savior.
There are those that do their best to create and pro-create His greatness, but none ever will.
Cling tight to your faith and the One whom you trust with it.

Insightful and inspirational.

Peter,

While I agree that we were created in the image of God, mankind is no angel. Still, an interesting, thought provoking write. Well done!
