"The Way" can't both mean "following the Torah will make you spiritually alive" and "following the Torah will make you spiritually dead". It's one or the other. Which is it?
"The Way" is a reference to Christ (John 14:6) as well as to The Covenant.

The Covenant is called "The Way" in The Torah (Deuteronomy chapter 9 verses 12, 16 and 11:28 and 13:5 and 31:29) and Jesus was saying that he was a living demonstration of it (The Way) in action, demonstrating how YOU have to be if YOU want to survive and go home to Father.

Right, so according to JAH you have to follow the Torah, which is against the teachings of Gnostic Christians, as I said.

Thus folks who are interested in the non-Judaizing Christian interpretation, click --> here.

This is the true and correct interpretation and explanation of The Gospel of Thomas.
Says you.

Everything you speak is through the JAHTRUTH cult filter. Corrupted with believing that Islam and Science Fiction are actually reality and from God. So when you post something and say 'it's true and correct' ... the exact opposite is most likely true.

Why are you so triggered by it? I'm curious. Jahtruth seems far less harmful than the mainstream Christianity promoted on this forum (which is almost entirely against logic, reason and rationality to the point of hardcore Nihilism).

Every religion has borrowed from each other. Now you can all chalk that up however you want. But I chalk it up to some natural instinct. Like maybe smart minds think alike, or these are just universal lessons playing out.

What strikes me most about "The Gospel of Thomas" is how it's loaded with dualism. Jesus goes all-in on teaching the snake that eats itself lesson. Of course, I'm thrilled about that lesson. The point is that the snake eats itself and completes some circle of rebirth. Therefore the snake lives forever.
