TOPICS: Elements of truth in every religion – internalize truth to raise consciousness – many saints became mystics – all religions can be used to discover inner truth – no mechanical way to Christhood – must go beyond outer teaching and internalize inner teaching –
Question: Dear Jesus, You acknowledge that there are saints….humans who have reached that level of spirituality where they have become a christed being. But they have reached that level through a false religion…the catholic church. How is this possible?
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
There is no religion on earth that contains one hundred percent truth, and there is no religion on earth that contains one hundred percent error. Even though the Catholic Church has perverted my true teachings in many ways, especially by turning me into an idol, there are still elements of truth in the Catholic religion.
As you grow on the spiritual path, you will sharpen your ability to discern between what is truth and what is error, what is the Living Truth of God and what is a man-made doctrine. When you recognize a morsel of truth, you can meditate on that truth until you have internalized it. Thereby, that morsel of truth can become the leaven which raises the whole loaf of your consciousness and thereby elevates your entire consciousness to the level from which the truth was given.
My original desire for Christianity was that it would become a movement that would empower the vast majority of the population to anchor themselves firmly on the path to Christhood. Because of the perversion of my original teachings, largely done by the Catholic Church, this simply is not possible for most people. That is why the vast majority of Christians follow the way that seems right unto a man, but the ends thereof are the ways of death. That way is the concept of waiting for an outer savior to come and save you.
Nevertheless, there are still enough morsels of truth left in Christianity that a mature lifestream can use them to raise his or her consciousness. If you will study the lives of some of the saints, and read between the lines of what is not necessarily spoken in biographies or autobiographies, you will see that many saints eventually became mystics. They looked beyond the outer, man-made doctrines. They discovered the inner truth that is there, even behind the orthodox teachings. They internalized that inner truth and realized that I came to call all human beings to put on the mind of Christ.
By meditating on my life, it is possible for mature lifestream to internalize my teachings and my Being to such a degree that the lifestream reaches Christhood. You can even reach Christhood by meditating on my Sacred Heart until you completely internalize the vibration of my Sacred Heart.
What I am saying here is that there is no outer religion that can mechanically take you to Christhood. Even if you follow a religion that gives you a very high degree of truth, there is still no guarantee that you will reach Christhood. You can reach Christhood only by going beyond the truth that can be written down and expressed in words. You can reach Christhood only by internalizing the vibration of truth, which is more than the outer words, doctrines and rituals.
Therefore, it is possible that a mature lifestream can reach Christhood from any religion on earth—or by following no religion. However, this is not meant to be an excuse for those religions who have perverted my true teachings. As I said, I want all people to be anchored on the path to Christhood, not just mature lifestreams. Therefore, the Catholic Church is woefully deficient in terms of offering people the path to Christhood. This church has done exactly what the lawyers of old had done; it has taken away the key of knowledge because the leaders of that church would not enter in themselves, and they were – and are – trying to hinder those that would enter in. Woe unto those lawyers who continue to take away the key of knowledge even to this day.
