I also use the text from the Constantine Bible as that is what most people have some knowledge about.
Actuslly, there is nothing of value in the Holy Bible as it is not at all reliable.
OAHSPE on the other hand in reliable, but not perfect.
ZetaTalk is my source of truth concerning the past, present and future. It is absolutely trustworthy.
THE STIGMA FOR CHANGING BELIEF & PRACTICE
Posted By: Robert Alford Darby, Date: 8/4/08 4:43 p.m.
BELIEF & PRACTICE & THE STIGMA THAT ATTACHES FOR CHANGING A BELIEF & PRACTICE IS THE SUBJECT OF THIS ARTICLE.
HERETIC & HERESY – APOSTATE & APOSTACY ARE THE LABELS THAT ATTACH TO A PERSON BECAUSE THE CHOICE TO CHANGE WAS MADE.
A COMPILIATION FROM SEVERAL SOURCES
FROM THE AMERICAN HERITAGE DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, Fourth Edition. Published by Houghton Mifflin Company
HERETIC: her•e•tic n. A person who holds controversial opinions, especially one who publicly dissents from the officially accepted dogma of the Roman Catholic Church. adj. Heretical.
Middle English heretik, from Old French heretique, from Late Latin haereticus, from Greek hairetikos, able to choose, factious, from hairetos, chosen, from haireisthai, to choose; see heresy.
BAD NEWS & GOOD NEWS
First, here is the bad news. The World as we know it is ending. At most, there are twenty-four months remaining before The Destroyer passes close by Planet Earth, much closer than last time when Israel departed captivity in Egypt, and quickly, in just a single hour, moving the horn of Brazil to the North Pole and shoving all of Indonesia under the Himalayan Mountains.
The really bad news is that world wide about five and one half to six billions of mortals will leave flesh and Earth as a result of the earth changes between now and The Passage and in the aftermath.
Sad to say, most of the survivors will have had no inkling that a major catastrophe was going to happen. Not many people are taking seriously the warnings concerning the pending endtime pole shift and most of the survivors will be aghast at the suddenness of the shift and the resulting catastrophic planetary devastation.
Now for the good news please consider this fact. You, now that you have been told about the coming passage and pole shift, have a choice as to whether or not you will believe or disbelieve such a thing as a catastrophic planetary passage will happen soon, or even ever. Personally, I believe The Passage just may occur in July of 2010.
Now, to introduce my article, I ask if you ever believed there was a Santa Claus or an Easter Bunny or a Tooth Fairy and later stopped believing they really exist.
My parents presented all three of those make believe characters to me and my sisters as being for real. In time we came to understand they were not real at all and no longer believed the lies we had been told by well meaning parents. We had all three of us, without anything to say about it, become heretics because we no longer believed in the fantasies. Yes, I was once a believer, but, as I grew up I gave up my belief in the childhood make believe Santa, Bunny and Fairy.
Even worse, once I was a Christian. That is no longer the case. So, I am truly an apostate heretic. I chose to change my belief and practice. I have also, recently, chosen to change my political party affiliation from Republican to Democrat.
THE TWO CONDITIONS AND THE OUTCOME ARE HERETIC/HERESY – APOSTATE/APOSTACY
Two Conditions Belong To All Men, Belief and Unbelief.
Book of God's Word
Being cotemporaneous with the cycle of Fragapatti, Son of Jehovih. As the upper book is of heavenly things, so is this lower book of the earthly administration of God for the same period of time. And it is called the Book of God's Word, because it is of the first descent of God to the earth to establish his word with man. Through Zarathustra, a man of Par'si'e, came God to this end, eight thousand nine hundred years before the Kosmon era. (Kosmon began March 31, 1848).
Chapter VII, verses 5 – 8
Then spake Zarathustra, saying: To-morrow night shalt thou again sit with me. Now, on the next night, twenty other spirits of the dead appeared and spake face to face with the king. But yet he believed not. Then spake I'hua'Mazda through Zarathustra, saying: What will satisfy thee, O man? For I declare unto thee, that spirit is not provable by corpor, nor corpor by spirit. There are two things; one groweth by aggregating, and the other groweth by dissemination, of which All Light is the highest. As by darkness light is known, and by light darkness known, similarly diverse are corpor and spirit known.I'hua'Mazda said: Thy generations, O king, have been long bred in unbelief in spirit, and unbelief is so entailed upon thee that evidence is worthless before thee. Who thinkest thou I am?Asha said: Zarathustra. Then Zarathustra asked him, saying: Who thinkest thou I am?Again Asha said: Zarathustra.
To which I'hua'Mazda said: Because thou seest with thine eyes this corporeal body, and heareth with thine ears this corporeal voice, so dost thy corporeal judgment find an answer. But I declare to thee, O king, there is a spiritual judgment as well as a corporeal judgment. There is a spiritual man within all men, and it never dieth. The spiritual man, which is within, is the only one that can discern spiritual things. It is the only one that can recognize the spirits of the dead.
Chapter XII, verse 32
Then spake I'hua'Mazda: Two conditions belong to all men, belief and unbelief. They are as seeds, planted in the soul of men whilst he is yet in his mother's womb; and when he is born forth into the world, they begin to grow within him. If man favor one only, it will grow at the expense of the other. Because of unbelief in man, he searched after truth and knowledge; but because of belief in man, he findeth happiness; but the latter may lead to stupidity and the former to cruelty. It is a wise man, therefore, that keepeth these two talents evenly balanced.

TROUBLED TIMES (ZetaTalk),
Beaumont & Velikovsky, from: Chronology & Catastrophism Review. Journal of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies 1996:2
William Comyns Beaumont (1873 - 1956)
Britain’s Most Eccentric and Least Known Cosmic Heretic
By Benny J Peiser
Did Immanuel Velikovsky knowingly present ideas someone else had developed many years earlier? While this question seems bizarre even to his most ardent opponents, it was recently raised in a paper by Robert Stephanos (Stephanos 1994).
Hardly anybody has ever questioned the originality of Velikovsky's flawed ideas of planetary catastrophes in historical times. While some critics have underlined that Velikovsky was mean with his acknowledgements of earlier catastrophists (Michell 1984, 142), and others have stressed that the claims of Velikovsky's originality were spurious because earlier authors had written about cometary catastrophes (Bauer 1984, 215ff.), many still believe that Velikovsky was the first proponent of planetary catastrophism in this century.
The reader of Alfred de Grazia's book Cosmic Heritics (de Grazia 1984) will therefore be surprised to learn that the first modern catastrophist was in fact a British super-eccentric, William Comyns Beaumont, who is hardly known today but was a top-ranking English editor. Some of his ideas seem quite quite mad - e.g. the idea that the Egyptian dynasties up to the 13th century B.C. ruled in South Wales and that Jerusalem was originally located in Edinburgh (de Grazia 1984, 138). In view of this, readers may regard the relative obscurity of this bizarre catastrophist as rather fitting. Yet one's surprise turns into sheer amazement when we read that William Beaumont - with the exception of his matchless biblical exegesis - had developed almost identical ideas to those of Velikovsky and some of his ideas were published 25 years before Worlds in Collision appeared in print. In fact, Beaumont had published no less than three lengthy books on colliding planets, cometary catastrophes (which he associated with the Exodus catastrophes), and revised chronologies - all of them published before Velikovsky entered the cosmic arena (Beaumont 1925, 1932, 1946). De Grazia lists Beaumont's main ideas as follows (de Grazia 138/39):
1. The geology of the world's surface is largely catastrophic. 2. The catastrophe was caused by a cometary collision. 3. All geological formations were shifted as a result. 4. Cosmic lightning played a major role. 5. Hydrocarbons were present in cometary tails. 6. Ancient chronology was several hundred years too old. 7. The Ancient calendars had to be revised because of the catastrophe. 8. Many species were extinguished catastrophically. 9. Religion was born in cometary worship and tied to phallic forms because of the shape of comets.10. Fear of cometary collisions is inherited by mankind. 11. Vermin were deposited by comets which also provoked plagues. 12. Deities from Egypt, Greece, Meso-America, and elsewhere were identified with planets. 13. Pyramids were both astronomical observatories and "air-raid shelters" for nobility and kings. 14. Planet Saturn, as a comet caused the Noachian Deluge. 15. The Atlantis date (ca. 9500 B.C.) given by Plato had to be shortened. 16. Extensive legendary evidence pictures the "hairy," "bearded," "blazing stars" that were comets. 17. Stonehenge, Avebury Circle and similar monuments were astronomical instruments. 18. Central American legends (and cultures) were contemporaneous with those of the Old World. 19. The intercalary "five evil days" were cursed because they coincided with a world disaster and the ending of an age. 20. The serpent, dragon, winged-globe, caduceus, and other ancient symbols are traceable to cometary catastrophes. 21. Religious festival are dated by cometary catastrophes. 22. Cometary conflagrations are the origin of coal deposits.
23. The ancients had a true 360 day year. 24. The planet Venus underwent great changes in color, diameter, figure, and orbit in the time of Ogyges. 25. Quetzalcoatl (Coculkan-Hurakan) commemorated the cometary dragon for the Meso- Americans.
Beaumont's theses are almost identical to those of Velikovsky. Yet Beaumont developed and published them as early as the 1920s and 1930s. Could this extraordinary similarity have been a freak accident? If this correspondence was not a fluke, how could it be explained? "Could Velikovsky have read and forgotten Beaumont's books?", de Grazia (1984, 139) asked. De Grazia tried to reconciliate the evidence with the fact that Beaumont's style and method were entirely different from Velikovsky's.
De Grazia pointed out that "too many of Beaumont's conclusions are the same to explain them as sheer coincidence". He therefore speculated as to how this parallelism could possibly be accounted for: "I guess that either in the 1920s or 1930s, when Velikovsky was in Palestine, the books [by Beaumont], published in England and dealing with matters of interest to the Near East, made an appearance in the bookstores and were seen by Velikovsky" (De Grazia 1984, 140).
According to de Grazia, Beaumont's early books were not held by Columbia University Libraries and only Beaumont's third book, "The Riddle of Prehistoric Britain" (published in 1946), appeared in the Columbia University library catalogues, and "By that time 'Worlds in Collision' had been written" (De Grazia 1984, 140).
However, according to de Grazia, "a note exists in his [Velikovsky's] archive, mentioning having read Beaumont's 1932 book; the note dismisses the work. Yet Velikovsky expresses his wonder whether Beaumont had gotten his (V's) ideas by telepathy" (de Grazia 1984, 140). But how could Beaumont have borrowed Velikovsky's ideas as early as 1925 or 1932 (let alone by means of telepathy) when - according to Velikovsky's own account - Worlds in Collision was only conceived in 1940? De Grazia was suspicious: "Could there have been a 'Bridie Murphy Effect" which might explain Velikovsky's rather irrational accusations against Beaumont?" (de Grazia 1984, 140). Had Velikovsky simply 'forgotten' that he had already come across Beaumont's books (or ideas) in the 1920s or 1930s?
In hindsight, de Grazia was much too quick to rule out direct influence. He failed to check whether Beaumont's books were stored in the Public Library on 42nd Street, the other big library which Velikovsky had frequently used during the 1940s. It holds all of Beaumont's early books, so they were readily available to Velikovsky during his ten years of research.

HERESY - FROM THE FREE ONLINE DICTIONARY
Heresy, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, is a "theological or religious opinion or doctrine maintained in opposition, or held to be contrary, to the Roman Catholic Orthodox doctrine of the Christian Church, or, by extension, to that of any church, creed, or religious system, considered as orthodox. By extension, heresy is an opinion or doctrine in philosophy, politics, science, art, etc., at variance with those generally accepted as authoritative."
The study of heresy is heresiology. The founder of a heresy is called a resiarch
HERESY - FROM HARPER’S BIBLE DICTIONARY
HarperSanFrancisco, A Division of Harper Collins Publishers, page 383.
Heresy, a term derived from the Greek word hairesis, originally an opinion or way of thinking. It was used as a designation of a sect, party or philosophical school. It is used in this sense of the Sadducees and Pharisees in Acts 5:17 and 15:5. Later Christian usage (from late second century A.D.) understood “heresy” to indicate deviation from the accepted teaching or practice of the dominant Christian community. Something of this sense may be found in the treatment of Christians as a “sect of the Nazarenes” in Acts 24:5, 14 and 28:22, where Christian is opposed by the Jewish religious authorities. Paul used the word for an internal faction within the Christian community (Galatians. 5:20; I Corinthians. 11:19).
FROM HOLLMAN ILLUSTRATED POCKET BIBLE DICTIONARY, 2004, Hollman Bible Publishers
HERETIC/HERESY, Opinion or doctrine not in line with the accepted teaching of the church; the opposite of orthodoxy.
Our English word is derived from the Greek word that has the basic idea of “choice.”
APOSTASY, Act of rebelling against, forsaking, abandoning or falling away from what one has believed.
FROM THE CONSTANTINE (HOLY) BIBLE
Note. In The Bible Almanac, third printing, Thomas Nelson Publishers, edited by J. I. Packer, M. C. Tenney, W. White, Jr. in the Heritic Section, page 536, it is stated that the early church believers in Christ considered Judaizers, Gnostics and Nicolaitans to be heretics.
Heresy in the New Testament
Paul’s Defense of his WAY of Belief and Worship.
The Book of Acts, Chapter 24 tells the story of Paul’s defense of himself before the Governor of Judea concerning religious charges brought against him by the High Priest. When asked to speak for himself, as set forth in verses 13-16, Paul said, “Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me. But this I will confess unto thee, that after THE WAY WHICH THEY CALL HERESY, so worship I the God of my father, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets: and have hope toward God, which they also allow, that there is a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust.”
In verses 21-27 we learn the reason for Paul’s arrest and perceive the corruption of the Roman system of justice.
Except it be for this one voice, that I cried standing among them, touching on the resurrection of the dead I am called into question by you this day. And when Felix heard these things, having more perfect knowledge of that WAY, he deferred them, and said, “When Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will know the uttermost of your matter.”
And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul, and to let him have liberty, and that he should forbid him none of his acquaintance to minister or come unto him. And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. As he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, “Go thy WAY for this time; when I have a convenient season I will call for thee.”
He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.
But after two years Porcius Festus cam into Felix room: and Felix, willing to show the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.
From the above passage we learn that THE WAY IS BELIEF IN CHRIST. So, since Paul was of THE WAY, he was a heretic: an apostate Jew.
Paul had, indeed, changed his belief and practice since his days as a bounty hunter arresting and handing over to the Jewish leaders many believers in Christ.
Paul allegedly wrote a great amount of the New Testament. The following are attributed to him:
First Corinthians, Chapter 11, verse 17-19:
Now in this I declare unto you that I praise you not, that ye come together not for better, but for worse. First of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear there be division among you; and I partly believe it. For there must also be heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.
Note. Hungry believers came to church to eat the Lord’s Supper. Paul said the hungry should eat at home. Some believers brought food to church and ate it in front of the hungry bringing condemnation on the church. The divisions were schisms; differences in belief and practice.
Galatians Chapter 5, verses 16 and 19-26:
This I say then, WALK in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft. Hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, revel lings and such like: of which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they that do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against which there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lust. If we live in the Spirit let us also WALK in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Titus, Chapter 3, verse 10:
A man that is an heretic after the first and second admonition reject: knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
First Thessalonians Chapter 5, verse 15:
See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves and to all men.
THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES
In the Old Testament heresy, per se, is not used. However, the word Heritage is of interest as it speaks of the culture and life style of Israel and those that would change the rules given by God to be followed by all professing to be His Heritage as a People.
FROM OAHSPE http://www.angelfire.com/in2/oahspe3/oindex.html
Index of Principal Plates.
NOTE. Below is the text that accompanies Plates 41 – 45 of the 1882 edition of Oahspe.
NO TWO ALIKE
Jehovih said: Let the sign of the corporeal worlds be as the signs of the etherean worlds; nevertheless they shall be independent of one another. Neither shall the travel of corporea disturb the motions and positions of etherea, but pass through, as if there were nothing. But the behavior of the etherean worlds on corporea shall be to bring them to maturity and old age, and final dissolution.
And it was so. And there floated in the midst of etherea certain densities, called a'ji and ji'ay and nebula, which sometimes augmented the size of the traveling corporeal worlds, and sometimes illumed them on the borders of the vortices, and these were called photospheres, because they were the places of the generation of light.
When Jehovih condensed the earth, and it became firm and crusted over, there rose up from the earth heat and moisture, which continue to this day. But Jehovih limited the ascent of the substances going upward, and the boundary of the limit of moisture was as the clouds that float in the air; and the heat was of like ascent. And whilst the moisture and heat rise upward, they are met by the etheric substance of the vortex of the earth, and the moisture and the gases of the air assume the form of needles. On the side of the earth facing the sun the needles are polarized and acting, driving forth; the which is called light; but on the face of the earth opposite from the sun the needles are in confusion, and this is called darkness.
Jehovih said: That man may comprehend the structure of the belt that holdeth the earth, I will give him a sign high up in the air. And Jehovih caused the vapor in the firmament to be frozen and fall to the earth, white, and it is called snow. For the snow-drop showeth the matrix in which it is molded.
Jehovih said: Let this be a sign also, that even as there riseth up from the earth heat and moisture, there are representatives of all things on the earth which have evaporated upward, and all such things rise up to the level of the density like unto themselves, every one to its own level, and they take their places in the strata of the vortex. These are called plateaux, or spheres, for they surround the whole earth. Some of them are ten miles high, some a thousand, some a hundred thousand or more miles. And all these spheres that rotate and travel with the earth are called atmospherea, or lower heavens.
PLATE 44. –SNOW FLAKES.
Jehovih said: The corporeal worlds I created round, with land and water, and I made them impenetrable, for I bring forth the living on the surface of them. Let not man imagine that My etherean worlds are also round and impenetrable; for, of all I have created, no two alike created I them.
Now, it came to pass in the lapse of time that the atmosphereans so loved the lower heavens, that they strove not to ascend to the emancipated heavens of Nirvana, never having reached the bridge of Chinvat. But they oft returned to the earth and held converse with corporeans, and they lauded the glories of even the lower heavens, so that man looked up in wonder because of the magnificence of the works of the Father. Yet these were bounden spirits.
Then Jehovih made the snow-flake and caused it to fall, that man might behold the beauty and glory of its formation. And he sent ethereans down from the emancipated heavens, and these taught man that whatever glory he had yet heard of, was as darkness is to light, compared to the beauty and majesty of the etherean worlds.
And the ethereans held up snow-flakes, saying: In the name of Jehovih we declare unto you, that the etherean worlds are larger than the earth, and penetrable, and full of roadways of crystals, and arches, and curves, and angles, so that were man to travel a million of years on one alone, he could not see half its beauty and glory. And the firmament of heaven hath tens of thousands of millions of etherean worlds. Let the snow-flakes be before your eyes as microscopic patterns of the worlds in high heaven; and ye shall tint them as a rainbow, and people them with countless millions of angels, spotless, pure, holy, and rich in the knowledge of Jehovih and His works, and full of the majesty of His love.
PLATE 45. – SUN – EARTH.
Jehovih said: In times past, man beheld the sun, saying: The sun is the Creator of all the living; light and heat come from the sun.
Then Jehovih said: I will put a sign in the firmament, and no man shall gainsay the work of My hand.
And above the earth, to the north and south, He placed polar lights, that man might bear witness that light depended not on corporea, and had no part therewith. But the sun He placed in the midst of the great vortex, so that every side was as a pole to the corporeal worlds around it. And Jehovih made etherea as a condensing lens, so that the rotation of each and every corporeal world should manufacture its own light, on the side poling to the sun, by the rotation of its wark and vortex. And man saw that atmospherea turned the earth, and that the earth turned not atmospherea.
COMMENT. No two people are created alike just as no two snow flakes, worlds or human fingerprints are created alike. I have included the above text from Oahspe because much of the creation story revealed in the new Kosmon Era Bible is, unfortunately, not known or accepted by adherents to the several world religions, the many Christian church denominations, and countless sects and cults today.
MY CONCLUSIONS CONCERNING LABELING THOSE THAT CHANGE THEIR BELIEF, OPINION AND PRACTICE, INCLUDE A LOOK AHEAD IN TIME TO COME AND MY PERSONAL GOAL AS A MORTAL HUMAN STUDENT.
I SUPPOSE THAT TO UNDERSTAND THE MEANING AND USAGE OF BELIEVER, FOLLOWER, HERESY, HERITIC, APOSTATE, APOSTASY AND SCHISM ONE MUST BE AN EXTREMELY LITERATE STUDENT OR A WISE OLD SOUL.
I AM JUST A STUDENT, NOT A TEACHER, SO PLEASE CONSIDER MY ARTICLE AS SOMETHING I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU ABOUT THE FICKLENESS OF THOSE MORTALS THAT DO NOT KNOW, BELIEVE AND LIVE BY THE CREATOR’S SET OF RULES FOR A SUCCESSFUL INCARNATION; SUCH SUCCESS DEPENDS ON PURITY OF BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT, IN SELFLESSNESS AND IN DOING GOOD DEEDS FOR OTHERS.
FOR ME TO NOW PREACH OR TEACH ANOTHER BELIEF, WALK, WAY OR PRACTICE AS BEING THE ROAD TO SUCCESS WOULD BE HERESY.
WE DO NOT INHERIT GOOD OR BAD CHARACTER TRAITS. IN LIFE WE ARE EXPOSED TO BOTH GOOD AND BAD BEHAVIOR. TO BE SUCCESSFUL AS SCHOOLHOUSE EARTH STUDENTS WE MUST SELECT THE GOOD AND REJECT THE BAD; MAKING THE RIGHT LIFESTYLE DECISIONS AND MOVING ON UPWARD IS THE DESIRED COURSE OUTCOME.
EARTH IS JUST A THIRD DENSITY BEGINNERS SCHOOLHOUSE. THE NEXT LESSON, FOR THOSE STUDENTS THAT MATRICULATE TO FOURTH DENSITY, WILL BE LEARNING TO LIVE PEACEFULLY IN A SMALL COMMUNITY.
THE CONTINUING EDUCATION OF OUR SOUL IS ONLY JUST BEGINNING. THERE ARE MANY LESSONS TO BE LEARNED IN TIME TO COME IN THE ATMOSPHERIAN KINGDOM OF GOD AND LATER IN THE ETHERIAN KINGDOMS OF JEHOVIH.
IF THERE IS A GOSPEL TO BE SPREAD BY LIVING IT NOW ON EARTH AND LATER IN HEAVEN, THAT GOSPEL IS THAT THE ALL PERFECT, ALL POWERFUL CREATOR IS ALWAYS EVERYWHERE PRESENT ALLOWING EVERY MORTAL AND ANGEL LIBERTY TO PRAY TO AND WORSHIP HIM IN THERE OWN WAY, BELIEVING HE ALONE IS SUFFICIENT FOR THE NEEDS OF ALL OF HIS CREATURES AND ALL OF HIS WORLDS.
I URGE YOU TO MAKE YOUR GOAL THE SAME AS MY GOAL WHICH IS TO SOMEDAY CROSS THE BRIDGE AT CHINVAT AS AN EMANCIPATED ANGEL CLOTHED IN WHITE LIGHT INTO THE COLLEGES OF THE CREATOR’S ETHEREAN WORLDS; NO LONGER BOUND IN FLESH OR LIMITED TO EARTH.
NOBODY CHEATS HEAVEN. NOBODY!
EVERYONE HAS THE LIBERTY TO CHOOSE THEIR SERVICE ORIENTATION; TO CHOOSE BETWEEN BEING SERVICE TO SELF (STS) OR BEING SERVICE TO OTHERS (STO).
A PERSON’S PLANET EARTH SCHOOLHOUSE STUDENT DESTINY IS A MATTER OF PERCENTAGES. CONSISTENTLY MAKING FIFTY/FIFTY STO/STS CHOICES IS THE BEGINNING OF STO ORIENTATION. CONSISTENTLY MAKING NINETY-EIGHT/TWO STS/STO CHOICES IS SOLIDLY STS.
THE OUTCOME OF THIS INCARNATION IS MOSTLY DETERMINED BY THE STS TO STO RATIO OF CHOICES AND IS NOT THE RESULT OF FAITH IN A SAVIOR.
SO, YOU NOW KNOW HOW TO GRADE YOURSELF.*
THE STIGMA FOR CHANGING BELIEF & PRACTICE
Perhaps, from time-to-time, the stigma of being a heritic attaches because of a bad choice concerning a belief and practice and in another instance because a good choice was made.
