In Luke chapter eleven, Jesus is admonishing the religious authorities of his day and says, in verses 43 and 44, “What sorrow awaits you Pharisees! For you love to sit in the seats of honor in the synagogues and receive respectful greetings as you walk in the marketplaces. Yes, what sorrow awaits you! For you are like hidden graves in a field. People walk over them without knowing the corruption they are stepping on.”
These verses are a strong reminder to us just how different things are in the spiritual world from this carnal plane that we dwell in in this life. God and Christ live in a world that is run by spiritual law, and they know our innermost thoughts and feelings. They know our intentions, and what motivates us to do the things that we do.
This is true of every human being on earth, regardless of their stature in this existence. The facade that we build up in our daily lives, which we present to others we come in contact with, is no consequence whatever in the eyes of God and Christ.
When I interacted with Christ as the consciousness of the sun while using a legal substance over a few years, not only did I feel completely surrounded by his unconditional love and mercy, I also was astounded at just how pure his presence seemed. He has a purity that is not something humans can ever attain; when I was in his presence, it was if a radiant golden light was surrounding me, allowing me to feel a lightness and cleanliness that was completely alien to me in daily existence.
Over and over again in the Gospels Jesus admonishes religious authorities for taking on the mantle of righteousness while their hidden behavior and attitudes were anything but pure. He warns us to be very careful of whom we give our reverence to. It has been shown over and over again in history in many religious sects that human beings desperately try to put themselves in places of spiritual authority that should be reserved for Christ and God alone.
If we seek human religious guidance, we need to make sure that those we entrust with guiding our souls are leading us to Christ and God and teaching us obedience to Christ’s commandments to love God with all our hearts, love others as ourselves, and to give service to the poor and disadvantaged. We need to make sure their primary purpose is to guide others to Salvation through Christ through repentance and forgiveness of our transgressions, and to help show us how to emulate Christ in our daily lives.
Those teachings are very simple, and many people feel called to carry them to others. We just need to take precautions when choosing spiritual teachers that they are leading us to the true teachings of Christ, instead of taking on the mantle of holiness for very human, ego-driven motives.
