One of the sadder situations we’ll need to face in the upcoming period of truth and reconciliation is the dismal record of organized religion in dividing and controlling people. Our sources have been telling us for years what our religions have been doing in this regard and what awaits them after the truth becomes generally known.
Matthew Ward tells us that “religious dogmas were originated by early leaders of church and state to control the masses.” (1) He describes other ways religion has been used to divide us.
“In addition to controlling the masses through dogmatic teachings, religions have served the dark purpose of divisiveness to such an extent that it resulted in centuries of trauma and bloodshed. Witness the Crusades, wars between Catholics and Protestants, pogroms against Jews, executions of ‘blasphemous’ individuals who refused to ‘recant.’ (2)
According to the Arcturian Group, doctrines like original sin and politicized ideas of repentance have been devised to exert power over us.
“You are Divine beings in your real identity and therefore have infinite sources of ideas and ways of doing and being. The problem has been that you have not known this and most were not ready to know this until now. In your ignorance you have believed yourselves to be less than the lowest.
“Churches taught that you were worms in the dust until you performed certain rituals or believed certain doctrines. In your ignorance, you accepted this, freely giving your power to those who would then claim it for themselves, convincing you that only they knew what was best for you.
”This scenario is still happening, and there are still many who follow false and often ego-inspired teachings, believing that somehow only certain humans are able to know what is the truth.” (3)
Rather than helping us know who we are, the discovery of which is our assigned task in life, Matthew explains that religions have kept the truth from us.
“The truth is, religions were devised to keep you from knowing who you truly are, to keep you ignorant of the universal laws, and to create divisiveness within the populace. The truth is, peoples you call ‘natives of the land’ or ‘aboriginals’ are closely attuned to the universal consciousness whereas religious dogmas, especially in Western religions, were made through the centuries by church leaders to obliterate that natural attunement, control the masses and acquire wealth for themselves.” (4)
Some religions, like Catholicism, SaLuSa tells us, have tried to convince people that extraterrestrials are the Devil’s minions.
“The Galactic Federation has made contacts all over the world, and some countries respond more readily than others. Our major challenge is in those dominated by religious beliefs, particularly of the Catholic faith who believe that we are in league with the Devil.
“It was however helped by the announcement from the Vatican acknowledging that we do exist. In fact our representative has visited them on more than one occasion, and our hope was that it would improve their understanding of us as they were made aware of Ascension.” (5)
The truth about the higher-dimensional galactics is that they have a far firmer grasp of God and the spiritual verities than anyone on Third-Dimensional Earth. SaLuSa informs us:
“The members of the Galactic Federation are God loving and not God fearing. We have long accepted that God is All Love, and that we are all an aspect of that pure Light. With that in mind, religious teachings will have to be changed accordingly.
“It is a delicate situation as we must allow for free expression, but at the same time the truth must be laid before the people. You must be able to make an informed choice, and before the end of this cycle you will be in that position. Once you are aware, we see that as another step towards complete harmony between you all.”(6)
He explains to us that, though we’ve strayed from the truth, we’ll be given the help we need to recover our path.
“Where you have as you might say, gone astray do not worry about the consequences. Duality is for experiencing and spiritual growth, and having lost touch with God you have gone your own way and relied on your conscience to guide you. Unfortunately Man has always had a herd instinct and has usually followed the leader, and been led far from the Light and Truth.
“Now you have risen up again and thrown off the shackles of the dark Ones, and are returning to the Light. That has attracted the attention of those who guide you as you are now responsive to their presence and ‘hear’ their advice and respond to their promptings.” (7)
In fact, at some point, we can expect the masters of all religions to return and assist us to recover our knowledge of spiritual truth. (8) SaLuSa reassured us in 2008 that “the Masters will return to Earth to give you the truth. They will also tell you of what lies ahead, and how the choice is always yours as to which direction you go.” (9)
He reveals that, just as the truth about our star brothers and sisters will be revealed with Disclosure, so also religion will have to restore the truth of Spirit.
“The different religions will have to bring their teachings into line with the truth about your origin and the true purpose of life. They will however, continue to exist all of the time that they are needed, by those who are unable to accept changes.” (10)
The current generation, the Arcturian Group say, are ready to reverse religion’s faulty stewardship.
“You who are reading this are coming out from this umbrella of falseness. You are awakening to the truth of your identity and are now ready to take back the power you in your ignorance gave to the many (not all) loud and ego-driven voices of government, churches, media, etc. etc. Trust your intuition on all matters. If any teaching rings of separation and duality, then know it is of the old energy. You are one, and that is a never changing truth.” (11)
SaLuSa also predicts that the revelation of the truth will bring people together.
“As the truth is revealed it will … bring people together as far as their understanding of what God is, or is not. The truth will no longer be able stand side by side with that which is false, and you will find that many teachers have had their words changed to suit the ambitions of those who desired to control you. Indeed, they have also made additions to support their own interpretations.” (12)
The worst parts of religion will be discarded, Matthew tells us.
“It will not be quite like religions being ‘totally discarded and replaced by universal laws in the Golden Age.’ When the truths come forth…, people whose consciousness has risen beyond the constraints of third density will adhere to the spiritual aspects of their respective religions and the devised, controlling aspects will fall by the wayside.” (13)
SaLuSa tells us that a belief in God is the starting point for all understanding of anything profound in the universe. He describes the foundational beliefs of a new spirituality.
“The starting point is a belief in God whatever name you use and acceptance that God is All That Is, and is the fountain of Love and Light. Nothing can exist except that it has its existence within the energy of God, which is why you should respect all life forms.” (14)
“He/She is not [made] in the image of Man, or an individual as you would understand it. God is the very essence, the energy that everything has its existence within. God is Love and all powerful and is the Father/Mother of all life. We acknowledge the Source and give due gratitude for all that we have, the most precious being life itself.” (15)
It isn’t that one religious teaching is better than another, SaLuSa says: “No one teaching is really better than another, although some have a more accurate explanation for God.” (16) But the truth revealed will set our feet firmly on a productive path. “Once it is accepted that you are All One, and you remove religious differences and beliefs that are not aligned to the truth, you will blossom and find your true path.” (17)
So religion, which the cabal has manipulated along with all other domains of knowledge, is destined to get a good shake-out once the dark ones have been removed from power and the masters from our civilization and others have come among us. We can expect people to draw together when religions are no longer being used as tools to divide us. And the rise of more truthful accounts of the nature of reality and of God will cause our spirituality to blossom.
