Use of Scripture

Understanding the universal work principles of harmonation and the nature and essence of our being is substantial for the instauration and preservation of a sustainable world-society that can maximize our becoming towards our cosmic purpose.

Since Holy books (whatever that may mean) deal in essence with concepts of GOD there is a certain potential that esoteric truths are contained in them.

However, it’s important to bear in thought that it’s Godinci’s view that holiness is not in books but in creation. We’re also convinced that their contained texts are no dictations from GOD to man but rather man writing down, for one reason or another, his thoughts on different topics and then, for sake of authority and validation, attribute it to GOD.
Furthermore, it’s a well documented fact that most of those books came together over a long period of time, and that their writers were often guided by others sources, intuition, political ideas, zeitgeist, etc., which easily explains why inconsistencies and contradictions in continence are always features of such books.

This being said it’s important to stress-out that finding conflicting arguments in a book doesn’t mean that the core idea of the book is false; in case of the Abrahamic religions this is : “there is one GOD from which all things emanates from”.
The same holds true for any science book, i.e. it’s not because certain natural phenomena where at a certain point in time understood to be one thing and have now been proven to be something else that we have to get rid of the core idea of science all together which is: “Nature and it’s laws can be investigated and are deducible through observation and experimentation”.

Only a fool could claim so.

The trick is to filter the rubbish out; of course, not in function of what we want the truth to be but in accordance with what observational facts and commonsense related reasoning leads us to. The fact that GOD’S self-reflecting intent is manifested in Nature and Nature is understood through observation, commonsense reasoning and science means that our understanding of GOD, just as science, is a progressive endeavor.

Maybe some of you for one reason or the other, are inclined to say that only science enables us to find answers to questions that are related to the true nature of things, and that looking for clues in nonscientific books such as the so called holy books is not science at all.
Yet, let us stress out that science should not care where someone gets his/her information from, science should only care if the information is sound and in conformity with the true nature of things.
It will not take you long time to understand that science, at the pure theoretical level, is more fictional than most religious believes and doctrines that can be drawn from any so called Holy book; the latter being more often a consequence of predisposition or naivety.

Godinci is only after the esoteric truths of scripture (if any), hence, don’t focuses on the historicity and life of individuals presented in them. Indeed, to understand physical reality from a more holistic view it could be very fruitful to try to find the esoteric parts (if any) of the so called holy books and try to comprehend them with the necessary mental and spiritual effort to see if they don’t bear in them useful information about Nature that would have been hard to deduce otherwise.

Things, at the deeper level, are all connected to each other, and so, spiritual truth have always physical ramification, which is why understanding spiritual truths becomes also object of Godinci.

As it stands today all active members of Godinci where educated in a society with Abrahamic religion, and so, it’s more easy for us to look to Biblical sources; but, as said before, the Bible certainly doesn’t has all its sources from Abrahamic religions.
Just to mention a couple of verifiable things:

  • the core of Moses 10 commandments can be found in much older Egyptian book of death
  • there is striking similarity between Christ and Buddha who lived assumable 600 years before Christ
  • the Biblical flood story has strong parallels (almost identical) with the much older text found in the Epic of Gilgamesh.

But this, honestly, is not of our concern, nor do we bother much about it since those things are self-evident for us.

Furthermore, finding more clues in one particular scripture doesn’t make it more holy then the other scriptures since holiness is not in book but in creation; using clues of a specific scripture is therefore not meant to prefer one religion above the other, nor does it mean that GOD as portrayed in them is the real GOD that can be known by all of us.

Obviously, some of the outcomes will be hard to deal with, but then again, truth doesn’t care about the hardness of facts.
