That evening while teaching in the house, for it had begun to rain, Jesus talked at great length, trying to show the twelve what they must be, not what they must do. They knew only a religion that imposed the doing of certain things as the means of attaining righteousness--salvation. But Jesus would reiterate, "In the kingdom you must be righteous in order to do the work." Many times did he repeat, "Be you therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect." All the while was the Master explaining to his bewildered apostles that the salvation which he had come to bring to the world was to be had only by believing, by simple and sincere faith. Said Jesus: "John preached a baptism of repentance, sorrow for the old way of living. You are to proclaim the baptism of fellowship with God. Preach repentance to those who stand in need of such teaching, but to those already seeking sincere entrance to the kingdom, open the doors wide and bid them enter into the joyous fellowship of the sons of God." But it was a difficult task to persuade these Galilean fishermen that, in the kingdom, being righteous, by faith, must precede doing righteousness in the daily life of the mortals of earth.

Another great handicap in this work of teaching the twelve was their tendency to take highly idealistic and spiritual principles of religious truth and remake them into concrete rules of personal conduct. Jesus would present to them the beautiful spirit of the soul's attitude, but they insisted on translating such teachings into rules of personal behavior. Many times, when they did make sure to remember what the Master said, they were almost certain to forget what he did not say. But they slowly assimilated his teaching because Jesus was all that he taught. What they could not gain from his verbal instruction, they gradually acquired by living with him.

Material mind is the arena in which human personalities live, are self-conscious, make decisions, choose God or forsake him, eternalize or destroy themselves.

Material evolution has provided you a life machine, your body; the Father himself has endowed you with the purest spirit reality known in the universe, your Thought Adjuster. But into your hands, subject to your own decisions, has been given mind, and it is by mind that you live or die. It is within this mind and with this mind that you make those moral decisions which enable you to achieve Adjusterlikeness, and that is Godlikeness.

The Gádians today practice their own religion and culture, they believe in the fourth religion. They never worship false gods or carved statues as substitutes, for we have no idols to worship." The God of the Gádians is one and the same for all. The creator of everything, source of all life, omnipresent, infinite, can do and undo anything; compassionate and tolerant, teaching people through the development and maturity of their own virtues, with the spiritual mature person as the crowning glory of the society.

The Gádian Rites of worship are the humanistic rites that show people around the world to gradually show them how they can develop an understanding of what it is to be human. Multicultural extracts portray the wit, wisdom, and poetry of individuals as they reflect on ethics, philosophy, knowledge, and human relationships.

An effective relationship is often maintained between people and the Gádian way of life. Although the office of Councillor is not hereditary, in principle it is open to anyone who can provide sufficient proof of the special direct personal contact with their own existence. In the Gádian Society a Councillor is regarded as the most senior person (not necessarily by age, but by spiritual and emotional maturity) in the lineage of the Gádians and the most respected in the society.

The Gádians recognises as a multi faith society there are four rivers that flow from the creator that help you to get to where you are going such as 1: Spiritual, being of the Spirit (Tao, Buddism etc), 2: Christian being of the Son(Jesus), 3: Orthodox being of the Father/Mother (by law, Jew or Islam) 4: That of Man being of direct action, as these determine the core values of our social, economic, political, philosophical and spiritual life, the Gádians as a holistic recognition of these institutions as coming from the one God that regulates and animates the material and non-material nature of all things in a harmonious balance.

We believe that a society will collapse when these four get out of balance, that is the imbalance between male and female, young and old, spiritual and physical powers are a precondition for peace and prosperity in both the spiritual and physical worlds.

It is the use of these three to make the fourth, intellectual, legal and diplomatic nature of Man in society.

The place of worship of the Gádians ritual house is called the Church. Each Minister will administer their Church. The Church is usually located on a hill top, hill side or in a grove of large trees. Places of worship also include under trees, beside large bodies of water, by the side of big mountains, hills, stones, etc. This has been misrepresented by outsiders claiming that the Gádians are Pagans who worship trees, rivers, etc. Thus it could be said about Jesus that He gave a sermon by the sea, olive groves and mountains out of respect for all life.

The Fourth Religion

The Gádians today believe in the fourth religion, the first three being 1: The path of the sun, 2: The path of the moon, 3: The path of the stars, and the 4: The path of Man.

These 'Four' rivers that come forth to water this land.

First River, the river of the Father/Son, being Orthodox, living by the law that is strict and inflexible having no common understanding by none believers, this can be found in the Jewish and Islamic faiths as well as Christian often referred to as the solar deity.

Second River, the river of the Wiccan/Celtic, being the Spirit of love for nature, living in harmony with the spirit of the law, and placing trust in a natural love, singular in nature and often having no common understanding in society, solitary practice, this can be found in Natural faiths often referred to as the lunar deity.

Third River, the river of the Fate/Fortune, being the respect for mystery and hidden wisdom, the trusting in good or bad luck, this can be found in the Eastern, often referred to as the stellar deity, covers astrology, tarot and any other means of divining the future.

Fourth River, the river of Man, open observation, experiences and truths learnt from life skills, being the respect for man as the crowning glory of life, this can be found in the Gádian faith often referred to as the master as in American Indian and Aboriginal beliefs, respect for the wisdom of the ancestors.

The importance of these Four allows each person to choose how they will celebrate life, either as Master Gádian, Slave, Free man or God, this means when we are born, everything depends on our Father, as we are growing up we become an independent person but still needing our Father a little, then upon our own Fathers death we become the one responsible for our own life, this is when we really realise that we have become the Father, as law unto ourselves.

The Gádians have often been referred to as the advocates of the "Judeo-Christian heritage" claims point to the four religious references in our heritage. Even though these references are there, you will notice that they also speak of a tribal or community council this seems to indicate the idea of democracy existed; being the affairs of man being governed by man existed long before anything else. That's a Greek invention, not a Jewish or Christian one, as many ancient Greek Scholars and Philosophers often spoke of democracy being key to the development of society thus the intellectual, social, spiritual and emotional nature of man. There is absolutely no support for democracy to be found in the Bible. The idea of a republic is a Roman one, and a Latin term ("res publica" -- public affairs). The Roman Republic was operating 400 years before Christ was born. There was not a single instance of a Jewish or Christian democracy or republic.

Take the idea of citizenship with its accompanying ideas of conferring rights upon a person in a democratic/republican society. Sorry, that's not a Jewish or Christian idea, and never arose during the two millennia of Judeo-Christian theology preceding the Founding Fathers. Citizenship was a Greek concept, expanded and developed by the Romans.

The rule of law. Nope, that's a specifically Greco-Roman concept, although it took centuries for the idea to build up strength against the usurpations of tyrants and mobs. But over and over in Greco-Roman writings, we read authors calling for respect for the laws. The Greeks showed their respect for the law by honouring Draco as "Draco the Lawgiver". Meanwhile, the Judeo-Christian concept of law was explicitly spiritual and explicitly apolitical. When Christ was presented with an apparent conflict between secular and religious law, he said, "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's".

The Gádians follow what has over the millenia become know as the "Fourth Religion", it can be explained as follows;

1. The First Religion is called the religion of the "Sun", this can be seen as the solar deities from ancint Egypt to Modernday Religions that follows the strict path of the Law. This is often know as the God the Father or the strict rule of the law. It generally usesfear to control it followers, examples of this can be found in business, armies and dictatorial governments etc. This equally applies to men and women as it is seen in the attituteds heldby the followers of this religion. Often found in Patriarcal societies (male dominate).

2. The Second Religon is called the religion of the "Moon", this can be seen as the lunar deities from many religions including wiccan, often seen in the flags of Islamic countries. This is often know as the Mother or the following the spirit of the law, this is seen in organisation that use compassion as their main principle that involves using persuassion tat is akin to guilt or shame aimed at the emotional aspects to dominate the followers. Many good examples of this can be seen in matriarcal societes (female dominate). This equally applies to men and women as it is seen in the attituteds heldby the followers of this religion. Often found in Patriarcal societies (male dominate).

3. The Third Religion is called the religion of the "Asters" (stars), this can be seen as the destiny of "Fate" which has been used by fortune tellers and others as a means of controlling the peoples actions. This is seen as being subject to inescapable events that happen to all people, call it fate, karma, etc. It is seen in all "Mystical" societies, tarot users, the hoping of luck etc, where a person is a sign seeker, wanting to know everyday if it is a good d ay to goto work, or this is the right person to marry when consulting the tealeaves, tarrot of seers. This is often used to control others through fear, promise of reward or knowing things will work out well if certain actions are taken. This is often associated with the use of the First and Second Religion through the use of prophecy, but it has some limited exceptions born out of Fore or Hind sight.

4. The Fourth Religion is called the religion of "Man", this is often known as humanitarian or in ancient times as "Man know thyself" from the teachings proverbs found in the temples of Luxor in Egypt where the height of that society was the personal development of mankind. This can also be seen through the ancient Greek and the peoples of the forests, Celts, Gnostics, and others who found their answers in the nature of man. his can be seen in mny ancient societies know as wisdom and philisophical to shinto to the pure teachings of Jesus Christ Son of Man) unafected through reinterpretation by the previous. Many modern societies stil use a form of ancestor worship as their basis, in praying to those who are departed for guidance. This is the religion that carries the greater burden or joy of all the others, as it makes man aware of the consequences of his actions, but at the same time allows the free choice to persue them. It highlites the need for great Libraries, places of learning, and places of relaxation. It encourages the youth to listen to the wisdom of the aged, and encourages the spiritual and emotional maturity when facing the events of life.

The Fourth Religion is guided by a Council of Elders, with its members being of sound mind, not easily given to anger and meet the biblical requirements for patriarchs (both male and female guides), there is no heiretical structure, only the respect given to those who have the experience educate and guide people through their lives. It encourages the advancement of all aspects of life being the personal development all people.

During the history of the previous three, we have seen at various times the aims of them t destroy the fourth, from burning of libraries to the executions of teachers and public administrators by invading religions or dictatorial gvernments and armies. Be it through religious, political, social or monetary aims held by the previous three. They knowing full well that if the people become self governed they will lose their power over the people and the constant wealth this power provides.

It origins today come from its recognition as a Judeo-Christian Religion

Judeo–Christian (sometimes written as Judaeo–Christian) is a term used by Australia, United States, Europe & many other countries, to broadly describe a body of concepts and values thought to be held in common by Judaism, Christianity & Biblical Greek and Roman Civilizations that form the fundamental basis of our Western Democracy, Legal codes, Religion and Morality.

In particular, the term refers to a moral tradition based on shared religious scriptures, referred to as the Tanakh in Judaism and the Old Testament by Christians, including particularly the Ten Commandments. It implies a continuation of values represented by this religious heritage in the modern Western World. As identified by their distinctive values of liberty and equality based on Genesis, where all humans are said to be created equal, and Exodus, where the Israelites flee tyranny to freedom. In furthering the progress of moral responsibility as a characteristic of Civilized cultures that can be traced back to pre-Judeo–Christian times in the Bible. The term "Judeo-Christian" has been criticized by some theologians for suggesting commonality between peoples based on unity of law than may actually exist.

The evolution of Judeo–Christian influence in Australia, America & Europe, is most commonly the subject of historians looking at the development of Democratic Senatorial & Republican Governments. The deep roots of Judeo–Christian values they explore go back to the Protestant Reformation, not the theological battles but the bloody struggle to win the right to translate the Bible into vernacular languages. This led to a religious mandate for public education so that ordinary people could read the Bible. According to some authors, this development was crucial to the birth of the Enlightenment and rebellion against divine right of kings, Emperors and Dictators.

In the Western context, historians use the term Judeo–Christian to refer to the influence of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament upon the thoughts and values of the Protestant, Puritan, Presbyterian and Evangelical heritage. These founding generations of Religious Leaders saw themselves as heirs to the Hebrew Bible, and its teachings on liberty, responsibility, hard work, ethics, justice, equality, a sense of free choice and its ethical mission to the world, which have become key components of the Western character. These ideas from the Hebrew Bible, brought into Western history by Protestants, are seen as underpinning the American Revolution, Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution. Other Countries in tracing their founding principles, emphasizing both Jewish and Christian influence in their personal beliefs and how this was translated into the creation of Western Democratic Governments, Public Institutions and Personal rights, duties & freedoms.

Judeo–Christian is not theology but an actual cultural and historical transformation that evolved in Australia, America & Europe, as a melding of Jewish thought into Christian teachings with the added heritage of English history and common law, as well as Greek & Roman Representative thinking—resulted in the birth of western style democracies worldwide.

Why?

A lot of people have asked me, "why do all this", my only anwer to them is this "When you can know the strength and charcter of your soul, you will become what you are currently being taught or guided by, good or bad, it is you".

This is the "Third" attempt at defining Man's relationship with their Eternal Father, the "First" attempt was with Adam, the "Second" attempt was with Jesus, both failed to bring changes to the way man (people) thought of their relationship with God.

Becoming a member of the Gadian Society will give you the opportunity to associate with others who have come to an understanding of their own divinity, through reaching a common awareness of their own inherent nature and divine purpose.

You will not be able to recognise those who have come to this understanding as we have no special clothing, public ceremonies or badge of recognition. It can only be felt by those who recognise their own divinity.

This knowledge has been passed on for generations to all people regardless of birth or status, as it by a persons character that you shall know them.
