The Armenian Apostolic Church (Armenian: Հայաստանեայց Առաքելական Եկեղեցի, Hayastaneayc’ Aṙak’elakan Ekeġec’i) is the world’s oldest National Church[1][2] and is one of the most ancient Christian communities.[3] Armenia was the first country to adopt Christianity as its official religion in 301 AD, in establishing this church. The Armenian Apostolic Church traces its origins to the missions of Apostles Bartholomew and Thaddeus in the 1st century.

The official name of the Church is the One Holy Universal Apostolic Orthodox Armenian Church [4]. It is sometimes referred to as the Gregorian Church, but the latter name is not preferred by the Church, as it views the Apostles Bartholomew and Thaddeus as the founders, and St. Gregory the Illuminator as merely the first official head of the Church.

Universal (Non Roman Catholic, Catholic) Christianity

Universal (Non Roman Catholic, Catholic) Christianity

Comprende? Catholic means universal, not just Roman Catholic. What makes religious adherents to various denominations feel that Jesus came to start a denomination (theirs of course), let alone ANY religion of any sort? Could it be, can your mind fathom such a thought, that Jesus came to reveal to us what true spiritual beings we really are? What a concept!

For Jesus the “ticket to heaven” was not membership in an outer religious form, but an inner state of unconditional love.

What the world needs now is LOVE, sweet love……..and a truly universal spiritual movement wherein one group is not better than another group, just different. Is different okay? For some “different” is scary and to be avoided if not  obliterated such that they don’t influence others. The sectarian and highly divisive “only Christians are going to heaven”, meaning if you’re not with us, you’re going to hell, has seen enough violence and horrible results.

Instead of trying to “convert” people to your denomination, or even your own local assembly, why not just love people- with no strings attached? Of course to do that takes the competitive fun out of it all. We need to go beyond the surface meanings of Jesus, which were hidden in parables to begin with, and into the deeper spiritual truths. The book that the early church fathers decided (along with the emperors approval of course) would be our canon wasn’t a license to kill everyone who would not take a vow to uphold such man-adopted creeds and confessions.

I don’t know how long it will take, but I feel that ultimately the Christ consciousness, without the religious exclusiveness, is the message of the Father. And, it’s not limited to Christianity- just most plainly seen, as I see it.  🙂

God is most DEFINED in Jesus, but not CONFINED to Jesus!

As a spiritual-futurist, I have a BA degree majoring in history. One cannot know the future without knowing the past which holds clues to what is on the horizon. The world is in such a rapid expansion of knowledge that we are close to entering a tipping point that will forever change earth as we know it.
