Church Services and teachings ? A Spiritual Guide

Church Services and teachings ? A Spiritual Guide

Church is a place of worshiping where religious believers gather together.  Church means in simpler words both a Christian association of people and a place to worship.

In the modern world now people use the word or I would rather say the tool to escape from religious beliefs is “Faith.” Many people believe that accepting Jesus will save them from the here after, but where is such saying in “Bible?” This sounds impressive but is not at all according to Bible, this is an illusion a man needs to get away from. This is why churches encourage people to be baptized to join that denomination. “Faith” will not save anyone, its good to have faith in God, but at the very same time one should strongly avoid ill doings. We have to abide the rules of God and do as God says, just for the reason God says it.

There is one body, one soul just like one Lord, whom all shall believe in. So the one body is the one church which belongs to the Lord.  Today we here people calling out attend the church of your choice, but why not the church of god’s choice and the churches of Christ will always greet you.

Churches are highly obliged and welcome children, men & women to be a part of it’s ministries. Churches warmly, each month, welcomes men to gather together with the common goals: To build, own, pursue and increase in the things of God. And also invites women to gather once a week and discuss their issues out. This is not it, church also helps young adults to build spiritual bonds that will last a lifetime and to help each other find their place in God.

This is not it, church strongly believes in socializing, so every church has an event management committee and there are various activities being planned out to make sure that the people that are a part of the church are not feeling left out.

If there are things not clear to any human mind, you can always refer to Bible, which is the best guide for everyone. Also, there are church services being operated online or is just a call away. Let’s save our generation and ourselves from sins or ill doings occurring to them by guiding bringing awareness in them and everyone about religion. Lastly, the best deed one can do is have the right attitude towards life and fellow beings and help other people at every step.

Christ Enlightened, The Lost Teachings of Jesus Unveiled by Best-Selling Author Steven S. Sadleir Just Released on Amazon April 15th

Christ Enlightened

Laguna Beach, CA (PRWEB) April 13, 2010

The latest book by Steven S. Sadleir called Christ Enlightened, The Lost Teachings of Jesus Unveiled will be released on Amazon (CreateSpace) this month. Steven retells the story of Christianity: Hundreds of scholars from around the world have been discovering pieces of a lost puzzle about Jesus Christ and his teachings and it’s creating a whole new and very different story. According to Steven there was a whole corpus of literature that the Aramaic speaking Semitic Christians from Israel, the disciples who actually walked with Jesus (and their children and grandchildren), where shown how to realize God by going within – the Kingdom of Heaven was the enlightenment of the consciousness. These teachings were later rejected by the Greco-Roman Churches as Steven explains, and lost to the world until recently.

Sadleir, who’s best-seller Looking for God, a Seeker’s Guide to Religious and Spiritual Groups of the world, served as a base for his research for world religions and inspiration for keeping up with recent archeological finds and historical developments within Judaism and Christianity. In Christ Enlightened, The Lost Teachings of Jesus Unveiled Steven delves into ancient history, to the very origins of God and the Bible, he explains what’s in the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, Merkabah and the Kabbalah. Here Steven reveals what has been revealed through the Nag Hammadi Library and the gospels of Thomas, James, Philip and Mary Magdalene, and how some of the first churches were run by female bishops. Steven also delves into the gospels of the Ebionites, Nazareans, Hebrews and Egyptians and draws heavily from the Aramaic Bible called the Peshitta.

Christ Enlightened, The Lost Teachings of Jesus Unveiled draws from the leading scholars from the best universities from around the world, including: Karen Armstrong, George Lamsa, David Levine, Rabbi Berg, Bart Ehrman, James Robinson, Rocco Errico, Elaine Pagels, Marvin Meyers and many others. The book begins by explaining the convergence of prophesies indicating a universal shift in consciousness occurring even now, and how we have already begun a Second Reformation of Christianity. According to leading historians, Jesus was not a god, was not born of a virgin but was the expected son of Joseph and Mary and anticipated Messiah of the Jews, and, moreover, did not die in remission of original sin but rather as a martyr teaching us how not to sin. According to Steven, who is recognized as a spiritual master in two lineages from India, Jesus was a “Kabbalistic Yogi” teaching the way to enlightenment.

Steven S. Sadleir is the best-selling author Looking for God, a Seeker’s Guide to Religious and Spiritual Paths of the World and co-author (with Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer and others) of Wake Up: Live the Life You Love, as well as others. Steven is director of the Self Awareness Institute and Christ Enlightened, with students in over 120 countries, and host of Enlightenment Radio one of the largest spiritual talk radio programs on the Internet and pick up on iTunes.
