He was the greatest Christian Theologians playing an active part mainly in Italy.
Although he liked stories and philosophy from his youth, he didn't have any interest in the Holly Bible, and was in the devotion to Manichaeism. However, he left Manichaeism when he read books written by Plotinus advocating "Virtue is the lack of Evil", and in 386 A.D. he experienced his drastic conversion to Christianity by reading the letters of Paul. Also his mother's enthusiastic belief in Christianity helped his conversion. After that, he devoted his life to Christianity, and he wrote many philosophical and theological books including "Confession" and "The Kingdom of God".
Augustinus advocated "Only when there is faith in God, we can obtain the right and intellectual understanding", and he set religion on to philosophy with fusing Greek Philosophy and Christianity.
Augustine principle was the mainstay of medieval Christian theology, and also the base of all the modern Western ideologies. In the channeling at the Lemuria Renaissance, he advises modern humans biasing the intelligence to turn back to love as the starting point.
MessageLive With Love to the Fullest as the Children of God
Beyond the age, beyond the sense of value, the situation changes in various ways. Between the ages I lived and the present age, the various measures of civilization vary. And for the problems, various sophisticated problems arise one after another.
But when all the problems happen, what do we have to make the basis of our decisions regarding them? It is after all about what happiness is for the other in the true sense. Certainly there is a time when we have to bring tender words. Love is sometimes a matter of encouragement. And love sometimes involves expressing tenderness. Love is expressing the latitude.
But is it good enough always only to say a tender word? Sometimes, there is a case when a parent scolds his or her children with the thought of beating them as severely as if scolding the other.
It is, in the true sense, what are the good words for others and what makes them truly alive? When you try hard from your heart, strengthen the will, and use the knowledge and wisdom, for the purpose, the essence of your knowledge and wisdom comes out. Then, express love and love others using the intellect and reason. Wisdom should be used for love. Love must not be discarded for wisdom.
And the person can become the messenger of love, only when one can learn and practice it in each one of these situations. It is what Immanuel wanted to say, and the accumulation of what we can do in the accumulation of a subtle act to our neighbors who are the little children of God will become the power of the person.
Otherwise, if only one person is the child of God, if only Immanuel Jesus Christ is the child of God, and the others are not the children of God, only Immanuel knows the wisdom of God. But that is not correct. When Immanuel Jesus Christ talked, those who were there did not have education, learning, food, and anything. But they were following him. Even though, they were all the children of God.
If it is so, since the thought of love in their heart recognized the word spoken by Immanuel as the message expressing the love of God, the crow followed Immanuel Jesus Christ. Otherwise, even if a thin man without anything had spoken, would they have ever followed him forgetting their work, forgetting their home, going barefoot and without food?
Those who had no learning were able to feel by their hearts that the word of love of Immanuel Jesus Christ as the children of God was real. The truth is that which is so. The ethics of love is that which is so. You might have wished too much for the know-how or manual. You might have thought too much about how it is for the one of love. But, when people see through whether you are a person of truth or a person of love, they judge your entire existence, your entire behavior, all of your words, and all of your acts, totally touching the spirit of the person as a whole.
Therefore, open your whole existence towards God. Opening it towards God means opening it towards love. When you open it towards love that means that since it has been disclosed as a truth that all of you are the children of God, it means you open the love as the children of God fully and live exposing yourselves to the people. Then a rushing stream of the splendid light of love given by God would spring out as if it had exploded.
By it you are going to change the people around you. If you think you can impress many people and change them by cheeky knowledge and words, it would be conceited. What is the person who is near God? Only when he is coming along, people come to feel awe and kneel in the face of his dignity. Though it might be difficult because we have physical bodies, when we speak a little, even people in present times could know what kind of background he has.
Make each one of you into a messenger of God, not only into somebody great, but each one of you should strive to open fully to the divinity embedded as the children of God in your self as a messenger of God, as a messenger given from God, and live being the light of the world. I hope so. It is the only way to rescue this ground.
Live as the Children of God with Brightness
You are now assembling the law and working to leave the word descended from God in books with all your strength. In the books, there has been embedded a grand light. There has been embedded the love of God. There has been a message to the people of the ground.
But can those who have heard it understand the whole of that knowledge? It depends upon how much you can explain the messages of Lemuria in easier words. But even hearing it in such easier words, how many people can perceive that God is really love itself? Only by that book, it might be difficult to change all the 6 billion people of the earth. It might be difficult only by the texts.
In that time, what has to be done? But it was told many times here. What has Mother Teresa done? Did she write a book? Did she speak many sophisticated laws? No, it was different.
What Mother Teresa has done is to shine this world all by herself as the light of the law of God's love. She shines by her love the big torch of love given from God through that small body as a child of God. There were many achievements that she has done. She built a nursing home for those with Hansen's disease. She built a home for orphans. She has done many and many things. But they might be done by the other person.
But by what reason has she been called a saint? By that which is her posture of living, the way of living, the spoken word, by her whole existence, even to the ones of different religious sects, people can feel "Ah, God really exists," and "On this ground certainly the messenger of God is living," and they can feel God beyond the word, by her whole existence, through her behavior itself, and through her life itself.
By the pursuit of the sophisticated words, wisdom, certainly there is also a road to reach the top of the mountain of what you call the divine truth. There is also such a road. You can go up to the top of the mountain based on all the sensitivity, intellect, reason, all of them.
But many of them cannot go up to the top of the mountain based on such philosophical things about which I had preached.
By showing the discipline of what it does mean to live as the children of God, the children of light, the value of your whole life exists. I would like to say that. I don't mean to say that the intellect is bad. I would like you to publish the books, and send out the leaflets, and it would be certainly important and expected work to make the oral translation like we have done, make the translation into other languages, and compile the law. I would like you not to give up easily by all means.
But the present age is one in which those who are intelligent have certainly increased; it is an age to save based on it, and it is very important to convey the messages based on it. It is also important to use the Internet, and also to convey to the masses through the field of art.
But what we want for those who have read the books and pamphlets to do is not simply go on to the next as if they were something like a best seller. Rather we want the way of living of the person who has read it to change and brightening, moving toward the way of living of the children of God and the children of light, so that it could be said he is really becoming aware by this new way of living.
Everybody is the child of God. Everybody can brighten. But only you have forgot how to brighten as the children of God and as the children of light. It is to propose how the people can once more teach how to do it. Each of you has to express how to live as the children of God, as the messenger of God, truly risking your life, through your total words, your total way of living, and your total acts.
