Today’s mail

Oh yes, the mailman hates me. Here are a couple of the titles that I got in the mail today.

“Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man’s Soul” by John Eldredge and “Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter” by Seth Grahame-Smith.  I just finished “Firefly Rain” and I’ll post my thoughts of that book in a couple of days.

The Magical Message According to IÔANNÊS (St. John the Divine) by James M. Pryse E-Book Download | Knowledge Files

 

 

Commonly called the Gospel according to St. John. Are you ready for the esoteric message of the Gospel never before so clearly revealed? Contents: The Seen and the Unseen; The Four Evangels; The Drama of the Soul; Explanatory Note; The Magical Message according to Ioannes; The Prodigal Son; The Birth from Above; Index. St. John the mystic, calls to you. Listen to this inspiring message of faith, hope, love, and mystical achievement.

That the teaching of Iêsous was largely allegorical is clearly apparent from the subject matter of the four Evangels, as well as from such express statements as that in Matthew xiii. 34: ” ALL these things Iêsous spoke to the people in parables, and without a parable he did not speak [anything] to them.” That the teaching had an inner and concealed meaning, divulged only to the few who were worthy to receive it, is evident from many passages in the New Testament; and it was so held by all the early Christian sects, and plainly admitted by the patristic writers. But, in addition to this allegorical teaching, certain rules of right-conduct are given, which constitute, not a mere arbitrary code of ethics, but one based upon the laws of man’s inner nature, his relation to Deity, to Nature, and to his fellow-beings. It is only by living according to these rules of right-conduct that the will of the man comes into harmony with the will of The God ; and in Iôannês (vii. 17) the final test is laid down : ” If any one wills to do his will, he shall have knowledge about the teaching, whether it is from The God.”
