The Gospel According to Mike
by Mike Williams
before Mike wrote his book, I had heard Mike tell about how in the past he asked
God why his version of Christianity at that time was not working.� I can see how Mike�s book of �One�, is the
answer to his question to God.� Mike�s
book read like, he was being taught by his life, how to write his book of
asked three questions of God as a teen.�
I can now see that my 5 decades of life since then, was just a series of
steps towards my one answer to my three questions that turned out to be five
questions.� My one answer only came after
I was finally ready to forgive everything.
book made perfect sense to me.� I had
found most of the same answers on my way to my one answer.� We both found good news answers.� Mike has successfully decoded the real bible
code.� There never was a bible letter
code, in English, for a bible somewhat mistranslated from Greek and Hebrew,
about a Teacher of God, that spoke Aramaic.�
But, the bible can become more miraculous, when I translate parts of it
myself, using Strong�s numbers and now Mike�s book of one.���
found that Mike�s book of one, talked to me about real grace, not cheap grace,
or grace mixed with law.� Mike�s
understanding of the �gospel� was actually �all good news�.
clarity on the purpose of legalism was helpful to me.� Jesus had already made sense to me, in
context of pre redemption, and Jesus as the Holy Spirit in the least of us,
to Mike, this is the first time, that I got a sense of how Paul understood real
grace, with more clarity, and in context.�
I can thank a pastor called Randy that helped prepare me to understand
found Mike�s book to be more about god concepts from the bible which can keep
you out of the traps of any religion, which has an angry god, no matter what
way you choose to find your way home to God.�
found Mike, and later Mike�s book, because I had asked God how to remove the
sting of Christianity.� Back then I was a
red letter follower of the sayings of Jesus, I could not understand how Jesus
was being used to make war makers, instead of peace makers.� The �Sting� was also about the bible being
used for Crusades, Inquisitions, State Control, and now a political party using
Christianity for state control.� When you
have been stung by Christians, Mike�s book can help you remove the sting.� The sting was the blame game by Christians
and non-Christians, instead of the sane game, of infinite forgiveness, of
followers of Jesus.
a spiritual therapist working with mental illnesses, in practice I have found
that I am working with false god concepts, as the core problem, which we are
working on healing.� Mike has found the
God in the Bible, after redemption, that is the God I have found in myself, and
those that are willing to do the hard, but necessary, spiritual exercises.

love casts out all fear, per the bible.�
So, perfect fear, casts out all love.�
One/Love = Fear� �As Love goes to infinity, Fear goes to zero.� One/Fear = Love� �As
Fear goes to infinity, Love goes to zero.�
Or, Love times Fear = One.�
Infinite Love times Fear = One or God�s Infinite Love over time makes us

Two of my clients in the same week brought me the same book
and pointed out that it was telling them the same things I had been teaching
them and myself. The book was My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald
Chambers. The more I consider this book, the more I would like people
that read the bible to read My Utmost for His Highest first. That
way they would start with a higher perspective when reading the bible and be
better prepared to keep the bible in a healthier spiritual context.
The Bible by various authors at the level
they were at, at that time.
The current bibles contain a full range of the levels of man
and the levels of That Which Is. Like a Rorschach ink blot test, the
bible reflects where you are on your spiritual path. The bible has been
mistranslated, misunderstood, and politically truncated by the priest class.
In my own experience I have found that key parts of it are mistranslated
and misunderstood. The Ten Commandments are a key source of our past
judgmental thinking. I found that from the Holy Spirit that they can be
transformed into really deep ways on how to have a closer walk with God. A walk that leads to forgiving, loving, understanding and merciful
thinking. If you are interested in what I found, my electronic
Secrets Steps to Recovery includes a chapter on the ten ways to That
Which Is. The computer bible I prefer to use is DOS Online
Bible & at WIN
Online Bible these links will get you a free bible for Windows or DOS.
The price of admission is free, but the value is way beyond that.
This version comes with the original Greek and Hebrew words in their original
font and with Strong's translation of each word, plus more notes than
you will read in any reasonable time. I have found that inviting the Holy
Spirit to assist me in understanding has been of way beyond value.******
A Course in Miracles by JC.
This book is poetry with large portions written in iambic pentameter.� It is
also often misunderstood. It can be an attraction off the spiritual
path to intellectuals that use it to judge themselves and others. For
that matter the bible can have the same effect when used by the ego. [Ego
= Edging god out] The course is really an exercise in spiritual
psychology of the path of forgiveness. It both makes the ego more obvious
and can be used to bring about a transformation of the ego. It only does
this when it is the intention of the student of the course is to transform
their ego. Their ego is safe to cause them more misery, if it is not
their intention to let JC assist in the transformation of their ego. The
book is divided into three parts; text, workbook; and a manual for teachers.
That is significant. Since there is a manual for teachers, there
are teachers. The teachers can put the Course in practical terms and
relate it to life here. One could choose to ask the Holy Spirit of the
Course "Who is my teacher?" Do not be surprised if heaven and
earth move to answer that question, when you get the courage to ask, and open
your mind like a parachute.
The �Text� did not make sense to me, until I was ready.
I recommend reading the �Manual for Teachers� next, to just understand the role
of teachers. I did not read the �Manual for Teachers� until I had worked
through a third of the �Workbook for Students�. From this �Manual for
Teachers�, I realized that there are teachers of the generic course in
miracles. I had the good sense to ask the Holy Spirit who my teacher was,
and shortly found him, then the next�
A spiritual life is meaningless unless anyone is willing to
do the necessary work. That is why the �Workbook for Students� is so
necessary when anyone is ready to do the work. Before starting your work,
it is very helpful to remember that everything you are learning, applies to
everyone else. ******
It says: "This booklet presents a brief overview of
"A Course in Miracles", seeking to capture the entire phenomenon of
the Course through the following sections: What is "A Course in
Miracles"?; The Story of "A Course in Miracles; The Teaching of
"A Course in Miracles"; Quotations From "A Course in
Miracles"; Questions About "A Course in Miracles"; The Impact of
"A Course in Miracles"" This booklet would be most useful
for anyone interested in the Course because it gives perspective and captures
"the entire phenomenon of the Course". By some miracle it is in
alignment with the Course. Wish I had read it before the book. It could be used
to give you valuable perspectives that help you keep what you are reading in
There is also a valuable supplement to the course in Supplements to a Course in Miracles :
Psychotherapy : The Song of Prayer.
When you are a therapist or a client of a therapist or in a
relationship, this supplement can be a pearl of great price. It also
gives great perspective, short and sweet. ******
The truth is what is true for you so far.
Like with Job, your conversation starts where you are and takes you as
high as you intend to go. This series of books could expand what is true
for you. It is your choice when you are ready to enter into your own
conversations with God. This series of three books can facilitate your
own conversation. *******
With God is from the continuing conversations

What Adam gives us is more information to improve our perspective on our
own spiritual journey.
I would have called Adam Smith's book, "The Mind Game",
since, "The Master Game", has been written. Adam has gained
much perspective in his search for enlightenment. He has learned
much about our minds and has enlightened us in the process. Adam has
tried a lot and met many in the mind game. Adam has remained a skeptic,
looking for objectivity while he has gone full circle on his search.
Adam has found that things happen,
that are not part of what we normally expect. Our mind can effect our body, like remissions
and stigmatic bleeding. [pg. 15 & 16] Placebos work, and work best
when they are two, taste bitter, and are large and purple or brown or small and
bright red or yellow. They also work better, when given as an injection,
not by a doctor, and are told what it does. [pg. 17 & 18] Naming the
challenge helps, like with Rumpelstiltskin, it can go
poof. [pg. 19] I note that the part the mind that does it with placebos, is not any different than what does it with active
pills or injections. In the case of active ingredients, the mind sees the
physical results, and also responds to these results.
Adam had his peak experience at UCLA, in an exploration of
inner space, by using a trigger placebo pill, to make the unconscious
conscious. Adam saw a giant spider with his mother's face, that ate him,
and he had a flow of feelings that resolved his relationship issues with his
mother. [pg. 27& 28] Next time Adam's experience from LSD was one he
could only try and explain. He started laughing and went through a breath
taking kaleidoscope display to a more real purple universe, with the frequency
of laughter, which went throughout all universes. [pg. 29] On pg. 32,
Adam quotes from the medical school text "The Pharmacological Basis of
Therapeutics" by Goodman and Gilman, on mind expanding drugs. These
drugs are distinguished by "their capacity to induce or compel states of
altered perceptions, thought and feeling, that are not (or cannot be)
experienced except in dreams, or at times of religious exaltation."
To me it is amazing that doctors did not "get it" that this is
no different from some in "mentally ill" and spiritual states.
Is That You, Lord?: Practical Methods
for Learning Spiritual Discernment by Roberta Rogers (Bobbie).
One of the most valuable skills we can learn is to discern
what is guidance from our lord most high
within and what is not, that is what is from our own ego. One way to
learn this skill is to be around someone who has experienced some of this
skill. Another way is to read something from someone who has some level
of experiencing this skill. That is why I am recommending this book by
someone I met, "Is That You, Lord?: Practical
Methods for Learning Spiritual Discernment" Her book is written
in practical, everyday terms. That is why it is so valuable. Bobbie
writes with honesty and writes of many of her experiences and the experiences
of those she knows. You will be able to relate to the subject of discernment
with discernment because of Bobbie's contribution. ******
Ancient Secret of the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH by Peter Kelder.
Another valuable set of skills we can learn are to find our
fountain of youth within, our lord most high within.
There is another book from our bookstore that I am suggesting will be a
blessing. I will be a blessing when you intend to find your lord most
high within. I will be a blessing in disguise when you only want to find
your youth. This short book has changed the lives of many. Perhaps
you might be interested in joining them. ******
Boundaries: When To Say Yes, How to
Say No by Henry Cloud and John Townsend
Our spiritual growth depends on us learning more about
boundaries. God had good boundaries by levels of spirit. We need to
learn how to have good boundaries. The above book
by two Christian authors is really a help. That's right, Christian with a
capital C. I know, it is rare, but good to see.
Wrestling with the Prophets by Matthew Fox I
really know that this quote can help heal us: "One thing I learned
from it is that the Native American people believe God does
not make evil spirits; we humans do, and our human institutions do.
Moreover, the only avenue by which an evil spirit can enter the human
heart is through fear... Fundamentalism, which is spreading
through all religions --- Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, and certainly Christianity --- is all about fear. Courage is at the heart of
fighting the fear." And from the Bible, "Perfect love casts out
all fear." On the back cover of the book it says "FOX SPEAKS
OUT FOR A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING AND A MOVEMENT AWAY FROM TRADITIONAL RELIGION
TOWARDS AN AUTHENTIC CONNECTION WITH THE DIVINE." Amen.
