Was King David the most famous ginger to ever live? Many people believe that he was, and they also use this reasoning to conclude that there is no way that King David could’ve been a black man born with red hair. <br /><br />British-Israelism teaches that David was white because he was ruddy, which according to them means he could blush. Their belief that only white people are capable of blushing has driven the false teaching of a white David. However, there is concrete evidence that points to the contrary.<br />

Do you find yourself questioning what the truth really is, or find you must block out certain thoughts; as to not raise suspicions against the belief each of us try so hard to protect? As a Christian do you wonder why there are so many denominations, and so many beliefs surrounding Christ; or have you ever been depressed or saddened, looking through the bible and churches, at what seems like an impossible search for truth: knowing full well that your experiences with God are real, but that something must be missing, and something must be wrong?<br />In these pages you will learn why, and where all this deception comes from, and how to overcome it. You will become a new baby in God, like how you felt when He first came into your life, you will be free again, and happy in Him; and as many say when they hear these revelations “it’s like I can breathe again.”

You can’t have a conversation with the Truth.<br />There can be no You and the Truth, for they are one and the same. <br />Yet the premise of this book is having a Conversation with the Truth.<br /><b>How is that possible?</b><br /><br />By carefully reading each paragraph with undivided attention, it will naturally point you towards the background of awareness. Staying in that background of awareness, the source of “I”, IS having a Conversation with the Truth.<br />The sole purpose of this book is to make clear that if you want to know who you really are, only by Being, by staying as “I am”, can that be achieved.<br /><br />This work might go under the radar, as it is definitely not for the masses. <br /><b>You reader, are certainly a special case, for your Heart is craving for the Truth. <br />It is craving for Eternal Happiness. </b><br /><br />This book will help you understand that it is you, reader, that you must know, and not the contents of any book.<br />Do not read it as a means to stimulate thought, but rather as a means to redirect your attention towards being, towards yourself, towards awareness itself.<br /> <br /><p><strong>Some of the themes discussed in the book:</strong></p><br /><ul><br /><li>Advaita Vedanta and Scriptures;</li><br /></ul><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>Reality, Unreality, Maya, Illusion, Brahman, Shiva and the Truth;</li><br /></ul><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>Existence, Emptiness, Duality, Nonduality, Consciousness and Unconsciousness;</li><br /></ul><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Arunachala, the Human Guru and Awareness as the Guru;</li><br /></ul><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>The Absolute, God, the Self, Pure Awareness and Eternal Bliss;</li><br /></ul><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>Nirvana, Liberation, Enlightenment, Manonasa and Self-Realization;</li><br /></ul><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>No-mind, Mind, Ego, Thoughts, Suffering, Fear and Depression;</li><br /></ul><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>Evil, Ignorance, Knowledge, Compassion, Kindness, Life and Death;</li><br /></ul><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>Sacred Music, Money and Food;</li><br /></ul><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>Out of Body Experiences, Astral Projection, Dreams, Void and Deep Sleep;</li><br /></ul><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>Meditation, Self-Inquiry, I am Sadhana, Raja & Mantra Yoga, Kundalini and Spiritual Practice Instructions in general;</li><br /></ul><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>Satsang, the Universe, Creation and the Ultimate Mysteries.</li><br /></ul>

It is as the Legions of Rome shall try to destroy the Druids of Britain, that the Guardians of Avalon, and the elemental,Merlyn-Hu-Myriddin, must use the Chosen Ones who serve the powers of light, and the ‘Talismans of Power,’ to come to their aid against these Invaders of their holy Islands.<br />The Druid Dracus, and the Celtae tribe led by Prasutagus and Boudicca must also find a way to avoid the destruction of the tribes as the Roman legions press ever further into their lands.<br />These are the Third set of Chronicles that will tell of how and why the Iceni were forced to defend their lands and off the Roman leaders and people that lead, and serve in the Legions that were sent to capture this Island. Here we shall lean of how the deep magic was nearly destroyed and lost to humankind.
Missionary Christianity and Local Religion: American Evangelicali...

The first Christian communities were established among the population of Hindi- and Urdu-speaking North India during the middle of the nineteenth century. The evangelical North American Presbyterian and Methodist missionaries who arrived in what were considered the Hindu heartlands discovered a social and religious landscape far more diverse than expected. With its Hindu majority and significant Muslim minority, the region also proved home to reform and renewal movements both within and beyond Hinduism. These movements had already carved out niches for religious difference, niches where Christianity took root. <br /> <br />In <i>Missionary Christianity and Local Religion</i> Arun Jones documents the story of how preexisting indigenous bhakti movements and western missionary evangelicalism met to form the cornerstone for the foundational communities of North Indian Christianity. Moreover, while newly arrived missionaries may have reported their exploits as totally fresh encounters with the local population, they built their work on the existing fledgling gatherings of Christians such as European colonial officials, merchants, and soldiers, and their Indian and Eurasian family members. Jones demonstrates how foreign missionaries, Indian church leaders, and converts alike all had to negotiate the complex parameters of historic Indian religious and social institutions and cultures, as well as navigate the realities of the newly established British Empire.<br /> <br /><i>Missionary Christianity and Local Religion</i> provides portrayals and analyses of the ideas, motivations, and activities of the diverse individuals who formed and nurtured a flourishing North Indian Christian movement that was both evangelical and rooted in local religious and social realities. This exploration of new Christian communities created by the confluences and divergences between American evangelical and Indian bhakti religious traditions reveals the birth and early growth of one of the many incarnations of Christianity.

This little volume was written in the spring of the year 1913, and is intended as a plea for moderation and good sense in dealing with the writings of early Christianity; just as my earlier volumes entitled Myth, Magic, and Morals and A History of New Testament Criticism were pleas for the free use, in regard to the origins of that religion, of those methods of historical research to which we have learned to subject all records of the past. It provides a middle way between traditionalism on the one hand and absurdity on the other, and as doing so will certainly be resented by the partisans of each form of excess.<br /><br />The comparative method achieved its first great triumph in the field of Indo-European philology; its second in that of mythology and folk-lore. It is desirable to allow to it its full rights in the matter of Christian origins. But we must be doubly careful in this new and almost unworked region to use it with the same scrupulous care for evidence, with the same absence of prejudice and economy of hypothesis, to which it owes its conquests in other fields. The untrained explorers whom I here criticize discover on almost every page connections in their subject-matter where there are and can be none, and as regularly miss connections where they exist. Parallelisms and analogies of rite, conduct, and belief between religious systems and cults are often due to other causes than actual contact, inter-communication, and borrowing. They may be no more than sporadic and independent manifestations of a common humanity. It is not enough, therefore, for one agent or institution or belief merely to remind us of another. Before we assert literary or traditional connection between similar elements in story and myth, we must satisfy ourselves that such communication was possible. The tale of Sancho Panza and his visions of a happy isle, over which he shall hold sway when his romantic lord and master, Don Quixote, has overcome with his good sword the world and all its evil, reminds us of the naïf demand of the sons of Zebedee to be allowed to sit on the right hand and the left of their Lord, so soon as he is glorified. With equal simplicity Jesus promises that in the day of the regeneration of Israel, when the Son of Man takes his seat on his throne of glory, Peter and his companions shall also take their seats on twelve thrones to judge the twelve tribes of Israel. The projected mise en scène is exactly that of a Persian great king with his magnates on their several “cushions” of state around him. There is, again, a close analogy psychologically between Dante’s devout adoration of Beatrice in heaven and Paul’s of the risen Jesus. These two parallels are closer than most that Mr. Robertson discovers between Christian story and Pagan myth, yet no one in his senses would ever suggest that Cervantes drew his inspiration from the Gospels or Dante from the Pauline Epistles. In criticizing the Gospels it is all the more necessary to proceed cautiously, because the obscurantists are incessantly on the watch for solecisms—or “howlers,” as a schoolboy would call them; and only too anxious to point to them as of the essence of all free criticism of Christian literature and history.

This book explores the secrets of the extraordinary editorial success of Jacobus Acontius' <i>Satan's Stratagems</i>, an important book that intrigued readers and outraged religious authorities across Europe. Despite condemnation by the Catholic Church, the work, first published in Basel in 1565, was a resounding success. For the next century it was republished dozens of times in different historical context, from France to Holland to England. The work sowed the idea that religious persecution and coercion are stratagems made up by the devil to destroy the kingdom of God. Acontius' work prepared the ground for religious toleration amid seemingly unending religious conflicts. In Revolutionary England it was propagated by latitudinarians and independents, but also harshly censored by Presbyterians as a dangerous Socinian book. Giorgio Caravale casts new light on the reasons why both Catholics and Protestants welcomed this work as one of the most threatening attacks to their religious power. This book is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the history of toleration, in the Reformation and Counter-Reformation across Europe. <br />

Peter Paul Rubens and the Crisis of the Beati Moderni takes up the question of the issues involved in the formation of recent saints - or Beati moderni (modern Blesseds) as they were called - by the Jesuits and Oratorians in the new environment of increased strictures and censorship that developed after the Council of Trent with respect to legal canonization procedures and cultic devotion to the saints. Ruth Noyes focuses particularly on how the new regulations pertained to the creation of emerging cults of those not yet canonized, the so-called Beati moderni, such as Jesuit founders Francis Xavier and Ignatius Loyola, and Filippo Neri, founder of the Oratorians. Centrally involved in the book is the question of the fate and meaning of the two altarpiece paintings commissioned by the Oratorians from Peter Paul Rubens. The Congregation rejected his first altarpiece because it too specifically identified Filippo Neri as a cult figure to be venerated (before his actual canonization) and thus was caught up in the politics of cult formation and the papacy’s desire to control such pre-canonization cults. The book demonstrates that Rubens' second altarpiece, although less overtly depicting Neri as a saint, was if anything more radical in the claims it made for him. Peter Paul Rubens and the Crisis of the Beati Moderni offers the first comparative study of Jesuit and Oratorian images of their respective would-be saints, and the controversy they ignited across Church hierarchies. It is also the first work to examine provocative Philippine imagery and demonstrate how its bold promotion specifically triggered the first wave of curial censure in 1602.
