Esoteric Christianity – A Tragic History

In early Christianity the sun-like figure of Christ gripped the imagination of men and women through a potent mixture of mystery and magic. Christ was seen then as the very embodiment or incarnation of the gnostic spirit of divine wisdom: Sophia. In order to connect faithfully with Jesus in our time we need to understand his Christianity correctly. To do this we must go back to its gnostic roots in Sophia. This books points the way.

The early Christian movement was far more spiritually alive and powerful than its modern counterpart, the Church. This early vibrancy was largely due to the influence of the Divine Sophia. However, after about the 3rd century, with the rise of the Roman Church, Sophia’s spiritual light began to fade. Eventually, at the Church Council of Constantinople in 869AD the holy spirit of Sophia was pronounced non-existent and it was deemed heretical to believe in her spiritual reality. This abandonment of Sophia in Western Christianity is one of the greatest tragedies that has befallen humanity.

The reason for this tragedy is that from the beginning of the Christian movement the all-male Roman clergy abhorred the wisdom of Sophia and her ancient mysteries. In fact, institutional Catholicism grew in strength only by allying itself with the crude, militant might of the Roman Empire, and violently tried to stamp out the wise and magic light of Sophia. But it never fully succeeded, for miraculously she has survived, but only in that form which is called Esoteric Christianity.

This book gives an historical account of the horrible abuse and repression of Sophia down the ages, as well as an account of the defilement of her wisdom that is contained in the sacred vessel of the Holy Grail. This truly is a book that can change your attitude to life, and even change your life itself.

Christ Is In You.: The essence of Esoteric Christianity.

Christ Is In You! – The Essence Of Esoteric Christianity

There is a way of knowing Christ as distinct from simply believing in him. This way was taught in the early years of the Christian movement but was later suppressed. It is the inner way. It was suppressed because it challenged the authority of popes, prophets, priests and preachers, i.e. of organised religion. The essential truth about the Christ however is that each person can find their own unique way to him. This inner way is the way of Esoteric Christianity. The history of its suppression is both astonishing and tragic. It has resulted in the modern soul virtually starving to death. Only true inner knowledge of Christ can nourish it. This book outlines the inner way of Esoteric Christianity. It tells you how to know the Christ, how to make him a vitally living presence and force for the good, in every aspect of your life.

Patrick and the Holy Grail

Patrick and the Holy Grail

This is an historical novel.  It is set in Hibernia (Ireland) in the 5th century AD. Here Jesus is being worshipped in the form of a snake! Patrick, a Roman monk, is sent to Hibernia from a monastery in Gaul to stamp out this foul, gnostic heresy. He succeeds, but only by invoking the magic power of the Holy Grail! In the novel the scene of the action is both Ireland and Britain (Hibernia and Britannia). The Roman Legions are gone from Britannia which is fast becoming a wasteland. Only a young warlord called Arthur offers hope. He dreams of re-establishing Logres, the ancient kingdom of his Celtic forebears. The Roman power however still lingers in the form of a monkish, fanatical, and very corrupt clergy. When Patrick arrives on the scene he eschews his Roman connections and decides to start his own Jesus religion! He sides with Arthur who is vaguely aware that the sun-like Christ can help him. Patrick acquires one of the Druid’s Four Treasures of Hibernia, the Spear of Initiation, and with it comes to Arthur’s aid. Merlin, Arthur’s friend and adviser is old, sceptical, and bewitched by a young priestess. But although Merlin is suspicious of Jesus, his sense of loyalty compels him to help Arthur fight the Roman Catholics. So, from Hibernia he acquires another of the Druid’s Four Treasures, the Sword of Light. Renamed Excalibur by Arthur, this weapon is just what Arthur needs to realise his dream. For Patrick, Merlin makes a special staff and invests it with his own magic power! This novel is based on real historical characters of whom Patrick is the best known. It was inspired by a book that Patrick himself wrote. It is a story of conquest, mystery and magic, a heady mix of history, religion, politics and pending war, where the Grail acts as a guiding and healing force.

GNOSIS!: He loved a woman, but chose the Christ.

GNOSIS!

Gnosis! is an historical novella based on the life of the 3rd century Christian writer, philosopher, and teacher, Origen. He taught reincarnation as a Christian doctrine but was later condemned for it, and eventually declared a heretic by the Church. The story is set in ancient Egyptian Alexandria. This thriving city is the hub of The Gnosis, a vibrantly rich potpourri of schools, philosophies, religious sects and cults, including Christians, all of whose aim is ‘gnosis’: knowledge of the higher worlds and its angelic inhabitants. In this city many masters and gods compete for followers. But if the newest, truest and most human god, the Christ, is to win out, masters and teachers of exceptional quality, faith and dedication are needed. Origen, though young and torn between love of God and a beautiful woman, has the makings of such a one. Pupil of Clement, who is a wise initiate of the ancient Mysteries, Origen is destined to become one of the most influential and controversial of the early Christian teachers or Fathers. His story told here is based on his known biography. It is a story of deepest human love, pitted against powerful evil forces determined to destroy true knowledge of God.
