Made in the image of Love – Returning to our innocence

This is awesome. This is the gospel as I believe it – not the evangelical Christian doctrine about how we are born “sinners” but rather each of us is made in the image of Love and we are innately perfect, blameless, innocent and valuable. People do hurtful things because they have forgotten who they really are, not because they are bad. The good news is about remembering our true identity and reconnecting to our true divine self and releasing ourselves from the hurt. As the saying goes, hurt people hurt people whereas loved people love people. When we realise how much we are loved, we will end up loving ourselves and others. This African tribe has a revelation of this timeless truth that is based on wisdom from above, untainted by organised religions that use fear and guilt to control and condemn people. Their wisdom and compassion bears witness with my heart.

I was recently told of an African tribe that does the most beautiful thing.

When someone does something hurtful and wrong, they take the person to the center of town, and the entire tribe comes and surrounds him. For two days they’ll tell the man every good thing he has ever done.

The tribe believes that every human being comes into the world as GOOD, each of us desiring safety, love, peace, …

happiness.But sometimes in the pursuit of those things people make mistakes. The community sees misdeeds as a cry for help.They band together for the sake of their fellow man to hold him up, to reconnect him with his true Nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth from which he’d temporarily been disconnected: “I AM GOOD”.

    This website mentions Christ, who died for our sins. How does that Biblical fact relate to the above gospel?

    1. jimmytst says:

      When I first started this website about two years ago, I had a similar view about “Christ dying for our sins” as being the gospel. My understanding of the gospel has changed since while doing research about the making of the Bible. Suffice to say that the Bible isn’t as inerrant as many religious institutions claim to be and the historicity of the person Jesus is uncertain, although I am fine with the mystical aspect of Christ as an archetype of a perfect and blameless humanity, hence the name of the website remains (thankfully): “The Mystery of Christ – Christ in us is the hope of glory”.

    I am in agreement we are born innocent, I.e. without knowledge of our world and it’s influence which aids in shaping our personality. However, we are far from being born perfect, else we would not be hurtful towards others. We are sinful, and often wicked towards one another, even if it’s only in thought. God is love. He sent His one and only perfect son Jesus to love and die for us, not condemn us. We do that well enough on our own to self and others.

    Instead of the Bible, from what do you derive your beliefs?

  4. Jacob Nielsen says:

    Maybe the purpose of this ritual is to remind the wrong-doer that he is knows the difference, from his past good deeds, between good from evil and should repent. That it is never too late to repent.

    I am sorry. I am a bit confused…the top of this page says…”Christ in Us is the Hope of Glory”

    First, how can Christ be IN us in your belief?

    You also say “This is the gospel as I believe it” So…not as Christ said it? Who is, as you say, the “Hope of Glory?”

    So in other words, Christ was lying? But you are still using His name to preach this false Gospel?

      Thanks for your comment. I think each of us needs to ask ourselves whether the information we receive bears witness with the Spirit of Love in our heart. No two persons may have exactly the same view of God/Christ. We need to find our own truth that resonates with us. Peace and blessings.

    This is a wonderful example of cultivating human behaviour and if every culture on earth followed suit, what a wonderful world it would be.

    1. jimmytst says:

      Thanks for your comment. I absolutely agree. Peace and blessings.

    I fully get what you are saying brother Jimmytst! Religion has for long taught man that he is a worm of the dust, a worthless sinner and the religious elite have capitalised on this imputed guilt to control and manipulate the masses.

    It is this identification with sinfulness which makes some commenters here very uncomfortable with the idea that they are innocent before God. I have discovered that this change of identity from “am a sinner” to “am innocent and loved unconditionally” to be the hardest thing for man.

    Keep up the good work!
