A Mountain I’m Willing to Die On
There has been a lot of international media about us this week. As a result Ricky Gervais tweeted about us:
I believe him news.sky.com/story/1096687/… That means I’m open minded right? Why do Christians suddenly want proof? I’m very disappointed in you
— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) May 29, 2013
I love how a bloke claiming to be the son of god and gathering disciples is being referred to as dangerous and “a cult” by a vicar, Haha
— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) May 29, 2013
I reckon he thinks we are total nutters but I had to laugh at his second tweet.
Also this week I wept after writing to a journalist to let her know that she had written lies about us. She received my email and promptly edited her article to reflect the truth.
World first people, world first.
Media Interviews & Responses
BBC WM – Nick Conrad Interview with Jesus
This interviewer was so respectful, I really enjoyed his programme.
If you listen to the podcast (in the link above) the interview starts about an hour into the programme and if you keep listening there are really interesting phone-ins from listeners.
We are taking part in loads more interviews this week. You can hear them as they are completed here.
We have also published a number of responses to false reports in the media. Including a response to the Matt Siegel article, “The Messiah Complex”.
Matt’s report was so full of errors it was amazing! These included incorrectly reporting our ages, the timeline of AJ’s life (i.e. reporting that he left his wife because he realised he was Jesus – the actual gap between these events was no less than 7 years!), stating that Dean Sims was ever close to AJ (they met in person once and exchanged a few emails), that we have an organisation called ‘God’s Way of Love’.. the list of plain old inaccurate details due to a lack of proper research goes on.. then there was the wealth of malicious innuendo veiled as intelligent quip-ery.
As a result, the media response by Jesus is quite lengthy!
More power to the truth I say.
Our latest round of media interactions have been a totally different experience for me than those in the past. Its been a great way for me to experiment with honouring God’s Laws and as a result my faith feels stronger every day. I hope to write more about this sometime soon.
I feel so incredibly grateful.
God is awesome, and so is His Way.
I really appreciate your sharing Mary, thankyou
there is a fairly new movie by Rick Gervais called “Ghost Town” and it is about love but with a serious spirit world twist.Have seen it 5-6 times and I cry every time.
On the same note I feel it is about time and i use this term in an excited way that God’s truth spreads to everyone and that it is being noticed. Jesus and Mary are a gift from God. Such an important soul should be noticed!
The Nick Conrad interview begins at about 46:30 in that BBC link.
Sorry, that’s supposed to be 1:21:20
How funny that Ricky Gervais of all the celebrities in the world saw the news and tweeted a message . . . I’m mean he made a film regarding the issues of telling the truth and has also made a film him dying and being a spirit . . . Seems perfect that he picked up on the news eh ! Awesome love the law of attraction
Thank you for sharing these “Interesting Things”, and please pass along my gratitude to Jesus for the clarity he shares with us all in his responses to media reports and articles, as It is wonderful to be able to send these response links on to others as well.
Just to let you know your own link within this posting: “response to the Matt Siegel article, “The Messiah Complex”. does not connect to the PDF response, but I was able to search the site and find it: http://www.divinetruth.com/PDF/Information/JesusMary/20130427%20Matthew%20Siegel%20Sydney%20Morning%
Rainbow Hugs in love,
Your sister – Carol Marie
Thanks Carol-Marie. Its fixed now.
gday mary and jesus i just wanted to ask u guys since you started divine truth and becoming aweare off who you really are have u enjoyed your selfs sofar and are you happy with the way things are turning out and are you starting to see people on the divine love path for real kind regards regan hope it turns out more fun for in the future for you two:)
Well, lately I’ve been feeling that life is a lot more fun! When I first met AJ again I went through a lot of emotions like shock, unhappiness, and rebellion at what my heart and law of attraction were bringing to me. It took me a while to appreciate the multitude of gifts that were actually being presented to me and to recognise that everything my heart had always longed for just turned up in different packaging that I had anticipated!
I think AJ (Jesus) has had fun for much longer than me, mainly because he surrendered to his fears much sooner and allowed himself to dream and explore his true passions and desires with gusto. 🙂
As for people for reals on the divine love path – I think that there are some people out there beginning to open their heart’s to God’s Love. But we don’t really keep track of people, nor do we want to. My desire is to live an example of the possibilities of what God’s Love can do for us, and I believe that eventually (if I succeed) this will be most powerful inspiration for others to embrace God’s Way for real!
Thanks Mary. Great response to the media AJ, and great LoA with Gervais – he’s a great guy and very funny. Awesome to hear this sort of response.
Ha! You know that things are hitting big when celebrities are onto you! 🙂
I think this is GREAT news actually…and it’s also really cool to see your confidence, Mary, in dealings with all the false info put out there.
I saw Ricky Gervais on a documentary with Richard Dawkins recently, where they were both talking about how happy and fulfilled they were being atheists, having faith in science and developing their intellectual knowledge. I used to feel that way too, until I realised how unhappy and unfulfilled I was. 🙂
Yeah I think an atheist has less issues about what they ‘expect’ Jesus to be and it’s probably a lot easier for them to believe that AJ is Jesus, cause they probably just see him as an ordinary dude from history! 🙂
Ben, I don’t think Ricky thinks its possible that AJ is Jesus.
In fact, just to be clear for everyone, I don’t think Ricky was speaking out in support of us.. I think he was being sarcastic and wanted to make a point about how religious people are often attacking of others who are basically stating the same things as they are.
Obviously he had it wrong in thinking that our beliefs are that Jesus is God, or that we are interested in leading a cult, or having devout followers…
I think a lot of people choose atheism because they are fed up with religions using their belief systems to bully other people, and because religions often ask people to have faith that is not based on any logic or practicality or actual loving principles. I think Ricky is like that. That’s what I got from his movie ‘The Invention of Lying’ anyway.
Anyways, if Ricky does show up at a seminar or subscribes to our youtube channel I will eat my words about him thinking we are nutters, but I certainly won’t be holding my breath! 🙂
Hahah – yes I felt the same! But I reckon if anyone was going to believe it, it’d be JUST the irony that it’d be an atheist huh!? 🙂 hehe
As an ex-atheist I can confirm this. It’s a lot easier to fill in a blank slate and get to know someone then to first have to erase your slate from previous religious ideas. The conflation of Jesus and God is also something atheists never suffered from. If you never believed in an angry, narcissistic or illogical God in the first place it’s a lot easier to embrace the idea of an all-loving and logical God than if you first have to release your previous notions. Unfortunately a lot of atheists are just as blocked to the conception of the real loving God as to the religious misconceptions of God…
Luli – you are priceless
Yes, this is my impression of Ricky’s beliefs. A staunch and content atheist. I gather we rate a mention by him because he takes an interest in religion and its hypocrisy.
I just finished listening to the Nick Conrad Interview, yes I agree it was a very good interview, enjoyable to listen to someone that is respectful and has an open mind. What I did notice is he listened to AJ respond to the questions asked without quickly jumping to the next question. I listened on to hear what the listeners had to say, was also interesting and good to see Nick remaining non judgmental.
AJ’s response to Matt’s report was very good, I like how each statement is answered individually. Another demonstration that I see in both of you in standing firm for Truth and Love. A wonderful quality that I admire.
The article on, A Mountain I’m Willing to Die On – so beautiful, another open mind and a demonstration of someone allowing love to show them what is truth.
Thank you Mary and AJ you are both beautiful gifts that have changed my life for the better.
You have to be careful with those things, saying that AJ is Jesus and you Mary Magdalene. You should read the bible more deeply before saying those things. You are putting at risk your salvation! Think very well about that! The Bible is the only source of knowledge, if you distort it or change it you are risking on not interpreting the truth correctly! Is not true that the bible is not a source of knowledge or that it was distorted or things like that. The Bible is the word of God and God won’t let any religion, or sect to change his word, so we can find the word of God in the Bible…
When Jesus came, he said He was the truth, he didn’t say he was going to show us how to see the truth, he said : “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Be careful with what you are teaching, read:
2 Timothy 4:3-4
“For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather round them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”
Jesus will not comeback until the man of lawlessness is manifested, as Jesus himself warned us in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
“Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us – whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter – asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshipped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.”
So the man of lawlessness was not manifested yet, so, the only conclusion is that Jesus didn’t come back as AJ. Jesus will return in his body, in a transformed body, but he will return the same way he left.
‘Men of Galilee,’ they said, ‘why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.’
Please, think about that, Jesus can really forgive you any sin and you can find the real truth in Jesus, not in a man who claims to be Jesus. The Bible clearly show us when Jesus is going to be manifested, after the man of lawlessness is manifested, not before! Everyone who says is Jesus before that is a False Prophet!!!
God Bless you and I hope it can open your eyes to the real truth!
I understand what you are trying to tell me, and the beliefs you hold are not new to me. It has been my experience however that God is the only source of truth and it is very limiting to decide that a single person or a book (such as the Bible) can be a definitive source of truth. Since God is infinite, it isn’t logical to believe that a single book can contain all of the truth about God.
I also must stress that each of us is responsible for our own actions and the amount of love that exists (or does not exist) within our souls. God created it that way so that we would have a way of understanding the gift and power of our own free will, the true nature and characteristics of love, and the wonderful life that is possible for each of if we choose to let love guide our actions and use of our will.
To believe that one person (Jesus) is there to absolve you of your sins and to simply be a way (rather than empower you to choose The Way) means that you miss out on the beautiful opportunity that God offers each of us, that is, to understand love and our personal power to create through the use of our free will.
Jesus and I have spent many hours outlining our beliefs and answers to statements such as you have made above. If you are interested you can view the video clips of these discussions here: http://www.youtube.com/user/divinetruthfaq/videos?flow=grid&view=1
Wishing you love,
Aloha Mary.. That was such a clear response in love and truth to DanielPuch.. Mahalo, as it serves as an example for us all.. Rainbow Hugs, Carol Marie
Yeah I would have wanted to “internet” punch him for not doing any homework to establish whether the teachings really are about love and truth or used the “don’t you know who I am” card……
Daniel was one of the more respectful new commenters here on the blog. That’s how he was published.
Sorry I probably sounded v disrespectful myself. I was expressing some of my own frustration at the closed mindedness, hypocrisy and arrogance I’ve encountered in some Christians. I need to deal with that.
first of all I want to let you know that I appreciate a lot for taking the time to answer my post knowing that I don’t share your points of views or beliefs. I appreciate that, and it speaks highly of you, because it shows that you are not someone closed minded, and that you respect all point of views even if they are contrary to yours… thanks for that.
One or two things I would like to add to your comments.
The first one it’s about the Bible. I know the Bible can’t contain ALL THE THRUTH about God, of course. The Bible is just a light, but a light that it contains the information needed for us to be saved. It cannot contain all the truth, but yes, it contains the amount of truth we need to know. God spoke through our prophets in the Bible telling us that we cannot know everything about him, we just need to follow his directions (on the Bible, his word) and believe that this is the way we are gonna be saved because we can’t understand the greatness of God. It surpasses our comprehension, is not possible for us human beings understand all the greatness of God. God talked to Isaiah, one of the biggest prophets in the Old Testament.
Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
The beautiful opportunity that God give to us is to use our free will, to chose the salvation he has provided for us through his faithful servant the Biblical JESUS, and through his sacrifice to save all mankind.
It may seem ridiculous to us, or as you said we can feel that we are “missing out” something. But this is what we, as human beings think about the ways of God. But God knows better than us what is good for us. By saying this I’m doing what Jesus asked us, denying ourselves. Why? Because we don’t understand God, we have to deny our old beliefs, our wrong interpretation of what is good, and what is wrong… our wrong interpretation of justice and trust in God that the way he provided to save us is good for us. And trust in him that he is perfect and he knows really what justice means, what is good and what is bad and so on… and that the way he want us to be saved is perfect as him and his will.
This is not something that I say not because I’m illuminated or I’m a know-it-all, this is in the Bible, and I believe that the Bible is really the word of God, one of the reasons is because there are a lot of fulfilled prophecies in the Bible that show that is the word of God.
I would like also to say to Amanda, that I understand her reaction because I did the same thing long time ago when I thought that we can knew and understand everything about God and the way he does things. He does everything in a way we cannot understand, and sometimes we feel that he is plain wrong, but we are the wrongdoers, he knows better than us what is good for us. Is not that I’m closed minded, or arrogant, I just surrender to God to his word that come to us throughout the Bible and the prophets that wrote it.
It is a concept a bit hard to understand and to explain in a blogpost, but everything in the Bible has such a logic and consistency that it makes realize that it is true. And that is truly the word of God, and once you know that you are not trying to convince others about “your truth” or “your way”, what you end doing is showing others where the truth about God and how it is available to everyone for free, for anyone with the willing to investigate.
You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me
I’m going to see the videos that you sent me, Mary to try to know about your point of views about those subjects. I just want to share this text from the Bible with you…
“If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day. For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken.
Thanks for your time Mary, and I really hope the best for your and AJ.
P.S.: Sorry for writing a bit long response, I promise next time I will write shorter posts.
If you have any questions regarding the content you see on the FAQ channel, I would be happy to respond. Further than that, any discussion or response to your Bible quotes seems like it would be a waste of both of our time since it is very clear that I am quite content with my life and beliefs, and you also seem to be in yours.
This blog is not intended, nor will I allow it to become a forum for people to have extended debate on their opposing and established belief systems. Rather my desire is that this is a place where I can present my experience and my beliefs, and people who wish clarity on what I mean can ask questions. I’m happy for discussion of differing viewpoints to occur here but only when there is a sincere spirit of enquiry in both parties. In fact the capacity for people to ask questions, to clarify my point of view and allow for respectful sharing are the reasons that I decided recently to retain the comments section on my blog posts. I’m still not sure if its going to last 🙂
I am very happy to respond to people who comment respectfully, but I don’t really want to waste time on pointless back and forth with people who are quite convinced of their own viewpoints and are here simply to attempt to have others change to share their point of view. I’m not banging on the door of other blogs trying to get them to hear my point of view and while you say you are not trying to convince others of your viewpoints, I would point out to you that it was you who came to quote the Bible and told me that my soul was at risk. That sounds very much like a person who IS attempting to convince others of their beliefs systems. (By the way the upper case words aren’t meant to be shouting 🙂 Just the only way I can add emphasis in the comments)
Jesus and I present these teachings publicly and for free, because we know that when people have an open heart and a desire for truth they will then be able easily access them. We never force our ideas or beliefs onto others, nor do we seek out avenues to convert people or bombard them with ‘truths’ or quotes or proof of their wrong-doing.
We share our lives and our beliefs in response to requests from others to hear from us. Similarly here on the blog, I present my experience and my views. I don’t seek to publicize what I do, nor do I frequent the blogs of Christians, or others who do not share my beliefs, in order to tell them what I see, or believe.
This is because I believe very strongly in honouring the free will of others, and also because I know that unless a heart is seeking truth it will not be open to it. So why offer, unless people ask? It’s pointless and it’s unloving.
Daniel, the great irony of what you have most recently commented to me is that many of the quotations you have used from the Bible were actually uttered and do hold meaning – just not in the way you interpret.
But I’m not invested in your sharing my feelings about this. I’ve been direct here, not because I wish to offended or that I am upset, but merely because I believe speaking directly is the best way to make what I mean clear.
Thanks for the opportunity to clarify my stance on comments.
Thanks Mary for your response and I understand what you are saying.
I also don’t want to convert your blog in a debate, I understand that.
Thanks again, yours.
Thanks Daniel, its been a pleasure interacting with you.
Ah, what a breath of fresh air these interviews are after some of the harsher, judgmental ones that have occurred with you both. Thanks for sharing those and the great info/music!
Much love, Mike
