Philosophical Discussion of Harvard’s Dr. Karen King on ApJohn

On page 147 of The Secret Revelation of John: “The issue is twofold: what is the nature of the world in which free will can be exercised, and what are the limits of free will? In ApJohn [and by extension TriProt in my opinion,] free will is limited to the capacity to cultivate one’s soul within the objective, structural conditions of a universe created and ruled by ignorant, arrogant, and malicious beings. Christ’s revelation does not depart from conventional moral teaching in antiquity–the specific qualities that Christ associates with good or evil are unexceptional–the radical move lies in ascribing evil to the world’s creators and rulers. This evil is not considered to be merely the deviation of a few bad rulers, but the very nature of ruling power in the world below. In its historical context such belief was not merely unexpected; it was revolutionary.”

This discourse leads directly into Direct Revelations II, III, and IV that are found in this work. In fact, Direct Revelation VII serves to cement Direct Revelations II & IV together as one cohesive unit. Direct Revelation III will not be feasible. Thanks be to God.

As said in The Gospel of Philip 53-54 “Names given to the worldly are very deceptive, for they divert our thoughts from what is correct to what is incorrect. Thus one who hears the word “God” does not perceive what is correct, but perceives what is incorrect. So also with “the father” and “the son” and “the holy spirit” and “life” and “light” and “resurrection” and “the church” and all the rest — people do not perceive what is correct but they perceive what is incorrect, [unless] they have come to know what is correct. The [names which are heard] are in the world [… deceive. If they] were in the eternal realm (Aeon,) they would at no time be used as names in the world. Nor were they set among worldly things. They have an end in the eternal realm.”
