“Humanity is still searching for contact with intelligent beings from outer space. In startling clarity the scriptures I read in the Bible state they have actually already arrived!

Think of it! In recent history, they have come as non-aggressively as we can possibly imagine–through the birth of a baby born to a human mother.”¹

Did the birth of Jesus Christ introduce us to the Son of God?

Jesus said his father was a supernatural omnipotent God from the heavens, or in current lingo – from outer space. Actually, the immaculate conception sounds like our current medical procedure of artificial insemination! After all,  how else can a virgin become pregnant? Virgin women can today, and Mary somehow did when an angel visited her.

“How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”
The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God...
“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.  Luke 1:34-38 NIV Bible

Angels visiting from heaven? What if we said energy beings from outer space? Some people will find that easier to believe. Younger generations now view the cosmos on a grand scale and see the vast possibilities of an Infinite Intelligence in the very design of our galaxy. They believe in some sort of Higher Power and they want the ability to tap into an inner power.

God in 21stChristianity doesn’t seem relevant to a lot of people, because really, telling them to “give your heart to Jesus and he will save you,” just doesn’t work anymore in our culture. Anyone under 30 will probably ask, “Who is this Jesus you’re talking about? And what’s he going to save me from?”

Demons, angels, sin, kingdom, saviour, crucifixion – are old religious terms. That jargon turns people off because they don’t understand what you mean.

Maybe it’s time to upgrade our operating system with new terms for a  21st Century Christianity. Download the 2.1 version today to update the doctrinal foundations of your corporate and personal faith!

I’m being a little facetious and of course, we have to take care not to distort the truths given to us in scripture. I want to give you some revamped terms to consider because you can spread the good news/the gospel to those outside the church a little easier by using modern language. People are dropping out of churches at an alarming rate BUT they are still hungry for truth, for Christian-style spiritual enlightenment!

Heaven =Outer Space, the Cosmos

Angels =Energy Beings aligned with God

God = the Source, the Higher Power, Universal Love

God the Father = The Creator

Immaculate conception = Artificial insemination

Jesus = God in human form

Christ = Anointed with metaphysical power (It’s not his last name!)

Saviour, Redeemer = Liberator, Rescuer

Crucifixion = Execution of Jesus the Christ

Resurrection = Reincarnation into Spirit form

Spirituality = Alignment with Holy Spirit

Faith = Powerful confidence in your belief system

Demons = Dark forces

Evil = Immoral actions

Sin = Unloving actions

Kingdom of God = Government of God

Love = Aw, this still equals Love – This one hasn’t changed a bit!

––––––––––––––––––––––––––– ♥ Heart Thoughts ♥ ––––––––––––––––––

I hope you base your faith on a strong belief system in the Creator, the Source of Infinite Intelligence, the source of all LOVE. I hope you interface with the Ambassador, God in the flesh sent down to earth from the cosmos, who proposes an alliance between humanity and the Celestial government of Higher Beings.

(Translation: Believe in God, the God of love, and accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour so you can be saved and inherit the kingdom!)

Hugs to all of you!
