    The Gospel of Thomas did not make it into the Canon of what is called scripture today. It is gnostic and esoteric and contains some really profound stuff. Here is the second verse. Sounds like something Brothers here would say
    "the All?"
    With a capiral A, no doubt.

    Sounds like Jesus has been conversing with bros Info-moetry and Samurai

    Right now I am at the point where I am troublrd. Wonder what will cause me to become astonished. Egyptian spaceships maybe? :bomb:

    Sister River I like how you bring things out it makes one ponder...anyway
    This is all I know of this Gospel, .... I can't even answer questions but here you go...

    The Gospel of Thomas was written around 140 A.D., long after Thomas had died. Who wrote this Gospel of Thomas??Thomas and other gospels such as the Gospel of Philip found at Nag Hammadi (I think thas is spelled right) and given their names some time in the second century.

    I was taught this meaning …

    It bore some similarities to the New Testament's authentic Gospel of Matthew
    When you pray, listen for the answer. You will hear or realize the answer, upon truly listening. You can learn your true path, and begin to take control, over your reality and understanding its true purpose or nature. It facilitates you to follow your planned path of life in a more peaceful and accepting manner.

    What we do is pray and ask God for wisdom to lead us to our right path. Until we find that path, we get weary or troubled, but once you find the correct
    course of life, you will Be surprised in a relieved sense…and once you arrived at this point, we are one with our Father.

    QQn...Info

    now i am going back to the poetry forum...:)
    Peace

    That's it Angel. I had been thinking in terms of some objective spiritual truth but it could also mean my own personal path in life.

    Thanks for a wonderful perspective.

    Your welcome... I am also seeking learning and a student. But as long as you have YOUR faith and you believe in YOUR faith. It will come in God's time NOT OURS, not when we want it. We all go through things to make us stronger. I am a strong believer once we stop going by OUR plan and follow God's lead, He will show OUR plan to US..but in his/her time.

    Peace
    Angel

    Certainly sir.

    Part 1
    I am troubled because the things I am learning here are turning my world upside down--in a good way

    Part 2
    I was reading in one of the archived threads about the flying machines in the paintings of Egypt and the sanscrit of India. See this is why they don't want us to know who we are because Africans were flying thousands of years before the Wright brothers.

    You remind me of me, when I was 15 or 16.

    These are the same blueprints that GALILEO stole during his dealings in Kemet.

    Alot of his ideas of astronomy and other aspects of science are based on plagarism.

    PEACE
