Yep, there are more than enough ignorant (that is, not well educated and informed about the spectrum and expanding continuum of the known Universe - although a few of those are well meaning and intentioned) to those who are downright knowingly and intentionally lying as they're sweating, spitting and slobbering, whooping and hollering and flaying about thumping on "The Bible" and podiums, or gently turning the pages and waving "The Bible" - using the calm somber façade of righteous piousness, dressing up in Western world suits and neck ties, or simple plain robes, and on to those in varieties of elaborate fancy ceremonial garb, 'carrying-on' with mesmerizing Rituals and Services, aided by beautiful and emotionally calming, or shouting high energy music performed by their bands and/or choirs (like in the "Blues Brothers" Hollywood in yo' face movie, and many others). Most are primarily emphasizing, in one way or another, putting "The FEAR of God" (What about LOVE, COMPASSION, UNDERSTANDING...?) in their spiritually needy, vulnerable and susceptible "followers" – "sheep" – "congregations" or whatever term they use to refer to those they are "leading" to do what they tell them is required to get into Heaven, which, as "Born hopeless sinners," means that they, as "followers" – "sheep" – "congregations" or whatever term, have no other alternative than to regularly and continuously 'tithe'/give the 'leaders' a fixed percentage of whatever money they have NOW and will EVER have for as long as they live – and bequest, or leave what's left in the Legal Will. No, they are not just asking YOU for a voluntary donation, they are demanding that YOU give it up to them, or get put out/lose your membership in their church/religious organization, and "Go to Hell."
And now, besides the Pope with the State of the Vatican City, we got the maximum high-tech media savvy, extremely BIG money Megachurches, globally, at the top of the heap of the Televangelist with the best of everything that money can buy, inclusive of televisions channels and networks, everything available on the World Wide Web Internet, private corporate luxury air planes, high quality production studios for movies, book publishing, hugh estate living, real estate investments, universities, and on and on – YOU name it, they got it.
Far too many to list, but check out Benny Hinn - Crystal Cathedral - Pat Robertson – and then make sense out of - with all of their mega billions of dollars, years of their world-wide ministries, "saving" people, (healing people through their TVs, and all of the rest that they claim to be doing), White House access and influence, and so on (tracable to nearly 2000 years) - why is it that the human species and desirable life habitation on this planet is on the brink of extinction, huh? 1992 World Scientists' Warning to Humanity World Scientists' Warning to Humanity by Union of Concerned Scientists Hummm...???
Spookily enough, I think and imagine that ifin' I (that is my Soul, Spirit and Consciousness, in only my etheric body shroud, after I leave my humans remains, along with the rest of the material stuff I have here on Earth) were to get to "The Pearly Gate" for entrance to "Heaven" - and "Saint Peter" asked me why He should open 'The Gate' and let me in, and I responded with - Well, uhm, I was a true Believer that Jesus, The Christ died for my sins, as the hopeless sinner that I was told that I was by my particular Religious Leader, which included regularly confessing my on-going sins, and to whose church organization I tithed to/gave money to, went regularly to Services at the church building, prayed the way I was told I was supposed to, and tried to do everything I was told that I needed to do to get in to Heaven.
For some reasons, I can't help but THINK, and imagine, that "Saint Peter" would stand there silently, with "The Gate" remaining locked. Or, maybe say something like; Your 'Religious Leader' is not here now to open 'The Gate' for YOU. [Having to do with this: Concerning the New Covenant mediated by Jesus Christ, God promised, "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them." (Hebrews 10:16; quoting from Jeremiah 31:33). The ultimate intent of God's master plan is to change the hearts of all peoples so He can give them His gift of eternal life.]
How would the law of God be written in the hearts and minds of mankind? It certainly would not be by man's penmanship, or from the mouth of another human.
To which my understanding is that I, as an Individual Soul, temporarily incarnated in human form, who was granted the innate and inherent FREE WILL - to Think, ask questions, seek and find answers, change my thinking and behavior - from The Creator and Source of EVERYTHING in existence, AM ultimately fully responsible.
With my fundamentally essential FAITH being in that which is most clear to me from the INNER silence of my heart and mind. My reasons are many, and I have written and published a 325 pages book COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS: Do-It-Yourself Manual, and a CD LET'S HEAL IT of lyrics with music addressing, in depth, these matters, and more.
"Scandalous acts of random ignorance." Tanisha Rasanna Dyushambee
"Lies will die, and TRUTH will rise to the surface." As Dinah Shore said to Burt Reynolds
It is clear to all coherently clear thinking individuals that the truth, about whatever, can no longer be hidden, repressed or suppressed. The fact of the matter is that the old paradigm is dead. It's just that it always takes the "Leaders" and the mainstream elite (Who are really the 'followers') a certain amount of time to accept and acclimate to the changes that the 'grassroots' and 'underground' are, and have been for some time, already actively about in our 'real-I-zations', thinking, living activities and behavior, which has the most powerful influence on the general population.
Of course, once the "Leaders" and the mainstream elite are convinced that the changes are 'real' and irreversible, 'they' will claim to have produced, discovered, or invented, and be 'leading' the way – after having done everything 'they' possibly could (inclusive of the most blatantly abominable actions that produce destruction, deprivation, torture, murder/assassinations and genocidal crimes against humanity and all of plants, animals and essential elements of our environment-with 'their' serious looks, or just smiling and smirking at us, with the silent question: "How stupid and weak-willed are YOU people?") to maintain the status quo of everything staying as it was, simply to protect 'their' undeserved elite positions and obscene material wealth – if the majority of our population allows this pathetic idiocy to continue to the absolute 'bitter end' for all of us. Oops and ouch!!!
We have been warned, and all of the excuses are used up. Sense cannot be made out of non-sense. As the Scientist, Violinist, and Cosmic Visionary, Albert Einstein, is quoted as having said; "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different results."
All of this is, and has been, well known and predictable by the genuine Seekers, prophets, shamans, heroes, heroines and Wise Ones - throughout the history of humankind. Such as:
HOPI ELDERS SPEAK ON Y2K
''You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the hour. And there are things to be considered...
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.''
Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said; ''This could be a good time!''
WISDOM OF THE ELDERS
''There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift, that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. WE ARE THE ONES WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR.''

Now that we are in the “Age of Information” (like it, or not), with nearly endless references, resources and archives, for pretty much anything anyone cares to know about, available, it is no longer convenient and reliable to count on being forgiven because "They know not..." The 'bottom line' from now on is: Did YOU try, or are YOU trying, to find the TRUTH?
The (lost, but found) Gospel of Judas gives a different view of the relationship between Jesus and Judas, offering new insights into the disciple who betrayed Jesus. Unlike the accounts in the canonical Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, in which Judas is portrayed as a reviled traitor, this newly discovered Gospel portrays Judas as acting at Jesus' request when he hands Jesus over to the authorities.
