Matthew 9:16-17

"No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved."

New Christianity

There is a prerequisite for reading, understanding and appreciating what follows.   If you haven't already reviewed the New Science, click on the link above.  

Keep in mind as you read through the New Science, that it was written for those with scientific minds just beginning to believe there must have been a Creator, because the cosmos and life could not have developed on its own from nothing.

Most of us are living in a Worldly Paradigm. We must learn to shift our thinking to a Spiritual Paradigm. Trust in Jesus and rely on the guidance of the Paraclete.

John 1:1-3

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.   The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made."

Note: "Sequence" refers to the sequence of events.

Foundational Source

The New Christianity is, of course, based on the Bible, primarily on the New Testament and everything Jesus said and did.   It also reflects the New Science.   Nothing in the New Science conflicts with the Bible.   There is a God, hereinafter referred as the Trinity, and specifically as Father God, Jesus God and Spirit God. One God, three Persons (Reference John 14:26)

Jesus is the "Creator" who is referenced in the the New Science, the same Jesus born of Mary a little more than 2,000 years ago.   Jesus God is not limited by time nor sequence.   "Very truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!" John 8:58

Foundational Verses

John 8:50-58 "Very truly I tell you, whoever obeys my word will never see death." At this they exclaimed, "Now we know that you are demon-possessed! Abraham died and so did the prophets, yet you say that whoever obeys your word will never taste death. Are you greater than our father Abraham? He died, and so did the prophets. Who do you think you are?" Jesus replied, "If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies me. Though you do not know him, I know him. If I said I did not, I would be a liar like you, but I do know him and obey his word. Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad." "You are not yet fifty years old," they said to him, "and you have seen Abraham!" "Very truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!".

Everything had a beginning with Jesus, not a "pre-incarnate" Jesus nor a "Christophany" like some have to say; those who cannot accept that God is not limited by time nor the sequence of events. It was the same Jesus God you know and love.

"The universe has not existed forever. Rather, the universe, and time itself, had a beginning in the Big Bang, about 15 billion years ago."   Stephen William Hawking, CH CBE FRS FRSA

Cosmic Singularity

"The universe, and time itself, had a beginning in the Big Bang, about 15 billion years ago," (Hawking) starting with an infinitesimally small, infinitely hot, infinitely dense Cosmic Singularity, which had to explode the instant it was created.

The Cosmic Singularity was created from nothing by the Creator, who is not limited by time nor sequence.

Meristematic cell definition: The undifferentiated plant tissue from which new cells are formed.

Botanical Singularity

A Botanical Singularity was then created containing every form of meristematic cell capable of growing into every plant type on the earth.

The Botanical Singularity was created from nothing by the Creator, who is not limited by time nor sequence.

Stem cell definition: The undifferentiated cell which is capable of giving rise to indefinitely more cells of the same type, and from which certain other kinds of cells arise by differentiation.

Biological Singularity

And subsequently a Biological Singularity was created containing the stem cells of every creature having life, from the simplest life form to the most complex.

The Biological Singularity was created from nothing by the Creator, who was not limited by time nor sequence.

Creator's Modus Operandi

The process above went on and on.   The Creator, being in the Concurrent State, was able to create everything from the most basic, undifferentiated components, starting with the cosmic singularity.   And, there is simple evidence of the Creator's methods.   Consider a huge oak tree.   It starts with a small seed.   Nothing pops into existence.   Or, the ovum in a woman's womb.   A single fertilized cell develops into 200 different types of cells making up the 30 trillion cells in the human body.   It was/is the Creator's Modus Operandi across all spectra.



Genesis 2:7

"And the Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth: and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living being."

Jesus blew into Adam's lungs to fill them with oxygen for the first time as one would a newborn baby who was not yet breathing.

"And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them." Genesis 1:27

Creation of Mankind

It was Jesus who said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness," Genesis 1:26   Who else in the Trinity do we resemble?   Jesus knew the life and death he would have to go through, but He created us nonetheless, demonstrating His unimaginable great love for us.

Adam began as a single cell, at once both physical and spiritual, developed from the most complex stem cell Jesus created.   Using the carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, fiber, water and nutrients of His creation (the materials of the earth), Jesus caused Adam's growth process to be completed instantly, cell by cell, creating simultaneously both a physical body and a coexistent spiritual body.

Eve was created in the same manner, except that her stem cell came from the bone marrow of Adam.   Adam then said: "This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man."   Wherefore a man shall leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they shall be two in one flesh. Genesis 2:23-24   "Vir beide sind nur ein," said a wife to her husband.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 (TNIV) "And may the God of peace himself sanctify you in all things; that your whole spirit, and soul, and body, may be preserved blameless in the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Why keep the soul (the repository of all memory) blameless? Because everything you ever did wrong is stored there in your memory and may result in temptations to sin at some later time.

Tripartite cells

Right from the start of our lives, there was a physical cell coincident with an identical spiritual cell, and at the functional center of the cells was our soul (referenced in the New Science as the Atemporal Particle), which was designed to direct all growth and other functions of our cells, store all memory and co-generate consciousness.

Our life clearly and unequestionaly began with the first tripartite cell and at no later point in our development process.

This defines, in the simplest, most basic way, the meaning of the words spirit and soul, terms confused throughout the ages and still today, even in the Greek language which is used in the New Testament.

Genesis 1:28 "And God blessed them, saying: 'Increase and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all living creatures that move upon the earth.'"

Conception

At the true moment of conception, the souls of both mother and father unite creating a new, unique soul incorporating the instructions to develop a unique human. The soul, therefore, also contains the combined ancestral memories of the parents. Concurrently at conception, the physical chromosomes and the spiritual chromosomes of both parents unite within the ovum creating a genetically unique, newly existing, individual, a whole living human being, a tripartite embryonic human zygote as shown above.


Psalm 139:13-16

"You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother's womb. I praise you, because I am wonderfully made; wonderful are your works! My very self you know. My bones are not hidden from you, When I was being made in secret, fashioned in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw me unformed; in your book all are written down; my days were shaped, before one came to be."

Growth controlled by the Soul

Our physical cells then divided repeatedly, concurrently with our spiritual cells, through the instructions from our souls.   As human babies, body, and spirit and soul, we developed in our mothers' wombs.

In Christian theology, the tripartite view (trichotomy) holds that humankind is a composite of three distinct components: body, spirit, and soul, but there is no clear, consistent definition for either the soul or the spirit.

Tripartite Humans

Our bodies are tripartite, having developed from tripartite zygotes, with the entire growth process controlled by our souls.   We are one person; at once a coexisting physical body and a spiritual body, with one soul.  

Our spiritual bodies do not age past maturity and they are immortal; perfect, just the way our Creator, Jesus, wanted them to be.

Our physical bodies may not be so perfect, since they may have been affected by errors in our DNA that either occurred ancestrally, due to age or environmental factors, all caused by the Fall, which corrupted everything in the entire universe.

John 11:25-26

"Jesus said to her: 'I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, although he be dead, shall live: And every one that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die forever. Believest thou this?'"

Death

Your physical body is mortal, but your spiritual body is immortal, which means, you will not die.   You will eventually leave your physical body, but you will not die.   Others may one day look upon your physical body as having died, but you will immediately be fully consciousness, feel great, younger and everything in your memory will suddenly be easy to recall.   It will seem like a movie review of your entire life. You may feel immense love from the Creator, love like you have never felt before.

And, you will go on living - forever.   Where?   Jesus explains that clearly in Matthew 25:31-46.

Atheist Dad Is Transformed After Glimpse of Heaven as Toddler Son Is Taken Off Life Support

Reported by Geeta Nangia, TIME February 17, 2022 (edited to fit within this page)

A family lost their 2-year-old son due to respiratory complications of the flu virus 11 years ago. The family were told that Griffin was brain dead and that, within the next 24 hours, they were going to disconnect him from life support. Darin watched Jennifer as she laid down with her son for hours knowing she didn't have much time left with him. After Jennifer, when Darin laid down for 30 minutes, everything around him was getting darker with each passing minute, he explained. Darin touched Griffin's hair and grabbed his hand like a handshake. "Right there, at that moment, I was GONE. Like, lifted out of my body. Gone. I was traveling with him. He was ahead of me, and he was looking back at me holding my hand. We were traveling. It felt fast, but it wasn't the wind. I could only see blue. My initial words to Griffin were, 'I can't believe this is happening,' and he would look at me and his smile was just so large and he was so alive. But, when he would look away from me, I would become very ill. Then, he would look at me again, and that feeling would go away. It was just so intense, the love I felt, and then he would look away. The third time he looked away, I was so sick and nauseated by my own feelings of not being enough, and I thought to myself, 'You've got to toughen up. This is a rare moment you are getting with your son. He is alive. This time, Griffin looked at me, and he laughed. He knew my thoughts. He chuckled and said, 'Daddy, you aren't sick!.' I knew all of what he meant at that moment, spiritually and emotionally. I was NOT sick! And then, I experienced the love of God. He was everywhere and totally encompassed me. I could see things I had done in my life. I didn't take care of people like I should have. I felt God say that He'd put people in my life to take care of them, but I hadn't. I could see these things play out and God showing me in a very peaceful and loving way, not a critical way. It was harsh, but so loving at the same time. Everything made sense. I could see eternity. It was to be outside of time. It was very clear to me there that Griffin, in his two years, did more than most men in one hundred years could conceivably do. His life was truly precious and accomplished. We got to what seemed like the end, and it seemed Griffin was trying to introduce me to someone. His attention went somewhere and then he looked back at me. And then, he asked me, 'Daddy, may I stay?' It was a yes or no question. I knew that I could say no, and that he would have been alive when I got back. It was crystal clear. But you know what I said? 'You can stay.' I said, 'Wow, son, Of course, you can stay!'" Darin remembers clearly that the moment he uttered the word, "wow," he was back in his bed in the hospital holding his son's hand and at that moment, everything was "really over." "That love, that I felt there in heaven. It was clear that the most I could ever do with all the love I could ever muster up, was a tenth of one percent of the love that I experienced that God had for me," Darin said of his profound experience.

What Happened?

As explained earlier, your spirit body is coincident with your physical body, and it moves with the physical body.  When your physical arm moves, you spirit arms moves with it.   When your physical hand grasps someone's physical hand, your spirit hand grasps that person's spirit hand.   When Darin grasped Griffin's hand, it just so happened that at that very moment, Griffin left his physical body.   Darin's spirit body was pulled from his physical body and moved with Griffin's spirit body as they both entered the spiritual realm.   Darin's consciousness transferred to his spirit body and both Darin and Griffin were conscious and alive as Griffin moved toward heaven.   They both then experienced the all encompassing love of God.   "I could see eternity. It was ... outside of time," said Darin.   In the Sequential State, events follow in sequence with no time between events.   As in almost all Near Death Experiences, the person wants to stay, as Griffin also expressed.   Darin said to Griffin, "Wow, son, of course, you can stay!", and he was immediately conscious again in his physical body, in the bed holding the hand of his now dead son, who is alive and well in heaven.

John 13:34

"A new commandment I give unto you: That you love one another, as I have loved you, that you also love one another."

Matthew 25:40

"And the king answering, shall say to them: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me."

Standing before Jesus

And, when you meet Jesus in person, it will be you who meets him looking just how he wanted you to look, with your complete spiritual body, head, arms, legs, torso and soul.

Remember, for all of us, Jesus will create a new heaven and a new earth. (Revelations 21:1-3 and 2 Peter 3:13)

"Then shall the king say to them that shall be on his right hand: 'Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and you took me in: naked, and you covered me: sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me.'"

Doing as He did

Jesus said, "Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.'"
John 14:11-13

Jesus was speaking to all of us. We have the ability to heal the sick and the lame through the power of the Spirit, who is always with us, by asking for healing in Jesus' name.

Matthew 15:54-57

"And coming into his own country, he taught them in their synagogues, so that they wondered and said: 'How came this man by this wisdom and miracles?   Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary, and his brethren James, and Joseph, and Simon, and Jude:   And his sisters, are they not all with us?   Whence therefore hath he all these things?'   And they were scandalized in his regard.   But Jesus said to them: 'A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.'"

Jesus, the carpenter's step-son.

Let's turn our attention to the life of the Creator.   Although the same Jesus you know and love created the cosmos and everything in it, we must always keep in mind he grew up as the step-son of a carpenter, and he no doubt worked with the tools of the day to build things.   He knew he would become a human, a servant to others through his learned trade, before he created the cosmos.   As the step-son of Joseph, He may have had to take on the carpentry business and head of household when Joseph died (there is no mention of Joseph after Jesus started his ministry).

Luke 1:31-33

"And the angel said to her: 'Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.   Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus.
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. And of his kingdom there shall be no end.'"

Mary, Jesus' mother.

Just like all humans, Jesus began as a tripartite cell in a young woman's womb, when the angel spoke to Mary.   The physical cell was produced by her body while the spiritual cell was divine, through the intercession of Spirit God.   The soul, at the functional center of Jesus' coincident cells, came only from Mary.   Jesus, therefore, developed in the womb of Mary, at once God and man.

Phillipians 2:6-10

"Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth."

Jesus' birth.

Since the soul is the repository of all memory experienced by the individual, and since Jesus' soul came from Mary, when Jesus was born, he had no physical memory of who he was, making him just the son of Mary and step-son of a common carpenter. Mary and Joseph waited until he was ready to learn his true nature.

Luke 2:47

"And all that heard him were astonished at his wisdom and his answers."

Speaking with elders in the temple.

Jesus had to be without sin to be the human who atones for our sins, but He did make mistakes, just like all of us when we were kids.   For example, when he was twelve, his parents went to Jerusalem for a religious festival with many friends and relatives.   Somehow, Jesus found himself on the steps of the temple where some teachers were hanging out.   He was listening to them and asking good questions.   With his upbringing and studies of the Torah, he was able to amaze them by his understanding and his answers.   At twelve, he was already driven by the knowledge that his mother, and probably his stepfather, told him and believed he was the Son of the Most High.

Luke 2:48 - Jesus is scolded by Mary

"When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, 'Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.'"

A teenage mistake.

However, he didn't tell his parents where he was, and he didn't watch to see when the caravan of friends and relatives was leaving.   Jesus' parents searched for him for three days.   His recorded explanation left something to be desired.   "Why were you searching for me?" he asked, "Didn't you know I had to be in my Father's house?" Luke 2:49   That sounds like a young teenager's response.   It was.   Mary was quite upset with him.

"And Jesus being baptized, forthwith came out of the water: and lo, the heavens were opened to him: and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming upon him.   And behold a voice from heaven, saying: This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."

Jesus starts His ministry.

Jesus was about 30-years old when he started his ministry after his baptism by John in the Jordan.   He then went into the wilderness and remained there alone for fourty days, tempted by the devil.   He returned and began to invite the disciples to follow him in his ministry.   Just three days later Jesus, his mother, Mary, and his disciple friends were invited to Cana for a wedding.

John 2:1-5

"And the third day, there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee: and the mother of Jesus was there.   And Jesus also was invited, and his disciples, to the marriage.   And the wine failing, the mother of Jesus saith to him: 'They have no wine.'   And Jesus saith to her: 'Woman, what is that to me and to thee, my hour is not yet come?'   His mother saith to the waiters: 'Whatsoever he shall say to you, do ye.'"

Powerful Words

Jesus, the Son of Father God, had no power as a man to perform miracles.   He relied on the Spirit God to perform them.   In fact, even the teaching words he spoke came from Father God; he said so.

I am relating the miracle performed at Cana to highlight some powerful words not spoken by Jesus nor by Father God; words that are not considered powerful by most.
When Mary turned to Jesus and said, "They have no wine."   Jesus replied with something like, "What can you and I do about that?"   Without further discussion, Mary turned to the waiters and said these powerful words, "Do whatever he tells you."

This woman, Mary, the mother of Jesus, is not to be ignored by us either, as many of us and our pastors do.

John 19:25-27

"Now there stood by the cross of Jesus, his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalen.   When Jesus therefore had seen his mother and the disciple standing whom he loved, he saith to his mother: 'Woman, behold thy son.'   After that, he saith to the disciple: 'Behold thy mother.'   And from that hour, the disciple took her to his own.

Chosen

When Jesus created the universe, he already knew, intimately, every one of the billions and billions of human beings that would live on earth, and, out of all of those, he chose one young woman to become his mother.   He knew the role she would play in his birth and early life.   He knew she would be at his crucifiction.   He planned for her to be taken care of after his death and ascension into heaven.   He loved and honored his mother.   The New Christianity will also honor Mary.

Isaiah 59:13

"In sinning and lying against the Lord: and we have turned away so that we went not after our God, but spoke calumny and transgression: we have conceived, and uttered from the heart, words of falsehood."


Infinite Injustice

Jesus created humans knowing that many would deny His existence, and do as they pleased, ignoring His commandments without repentance. This would justly require humankind's annihilation. Think of it, the "created" denying and disobeying the divine "Creator." There can be no greater injustice, an infinite injustice. Only the Creator, Jesus, could fully resolve the injustice which would occur. Since humans would cause the injustice, a human would also have to atone.


Matthew 20:17-19

"And Jesus going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples apart, and said to them: 'Behold we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be betrayed to the chief priests and the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death. And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to be mocked, and scourged, and crucified, and the third day he shall rise again.'"

Our redemption.

Therefore, Jesus knew that only a God/human could resolve and atone for the injustice that would occur. He would have to become fully human while remaining fully God. He would have to atone for the injustice by dying a human death, and he died on the cross to save all of humankind from annihilation. At the end of his suffering, He left his physical body saying, "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit," Luke 23:46.

He's Alive

His spirit body returned to his physical body on the third day and He was alive on earth once again.   He probably first met privately with his mother, Mary, although that's not recorded in the gospels.

John 20:10-16

"The disciples therefore departed again to their home. But Mary (Mary Magdalene) stood at the sepulchre without, weeping. Now as she was weeping, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, And she saw two angels in white, sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been laid. They say to her: 'Woman, why weepest thou?' She saith to them: 'Because they have taken away my Lord; and I know not where they have laid him.' When she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing; and she knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith to her: 'Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou?' She, thinking it was the gardener, saith to him: 'Sir, if thou hast taken him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.' Jesus saith to her: 'Mary.' She turning, saith to him: 'Rabboni (which is to say, Master)'".

The Paraclete

Jesus left the earth but sent the Paraclete to abide with each of us forever. "Advocate", "intercessor", "teacher", "helper", "comforter", are all words used to describe the Holy Spirit and the Spirit's purpose. Spirit God is always with us, willing to help us in any way. The Spirit communicates with us through physical signs which we must watch for, but also through thoughts, answers and guiding directions placed in our souls, accessble as intuitions.

The Science behind Communion

Since Jesus God is alive, both God and human, it was necessay for him to create what became a very controversial concept for him to be with us as the Spirit is always. Many of His disciples turned away from him when he said, "If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever; and the bread that I will give, is my flesh, for the life of the world." The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" Then Jesus said to them: "Amen, amen I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, abideth in me, and I in him". John 6:52-57

Jesus did not say these words to create a symbol! He explained the concept clearly at the Last Supper: "While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, 'Take and eat; this is my body.' Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, 'Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.'" Matthew 26:26-28   When we bless the bread and wine using his words, and when we eat and drink, they become his body and blood. They enter our blood stream as nutrients and reach the neurons of our brains which are communicating continously with our souls. "He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, abideth in me, and I in him" The Creator of the universe is thereby with us. We should receive Jesus in this manner often.
