a real plain christianity

The Arès Pilgrims are Christians in the original existential sense of the word Christian.
Ever since the 4th century the meaning of the word Christian has sadly altered. Today it describes a credo that claims eternal salvation as only given to the one who confesses that the blood of Jesus, regarded as God in person, rolled down the cross (Rev of Arès xxxi/1) to redeem the sinners. This credo is questioned by The Revelation of Arès, that quite differently restores the Core of Jesus’ prophetic teaching, that is, it is the human, any man or woman, that changes his or her life (for the better)(Rev of Arès 30/11), whatever he or she may think or believe, that is saved (36/23) and moreover helps change the world, i.e., save it (28/7).

Jesus MountStCatherine Icon, SinaiThe Truth is, the world has to change (Rev of Arès 28/7
). The Revelation of Arès develops in full around this verse particularly striking because the word Truth, which usually is conceptual and devotional, unexpectedly refers to a factual, practical goal: the change (for the better) as the only way to salvation, whether personal or global. Man, not what you believe in, but what you do saves you! Which is a dynamic purely and really Christian in the original sense of the word.
So we leave religion and have an easy passage into spiritual life, which is plain life to an Arès Pilgrim. That life spiritually stronger than devotion I felt in my flesh on October 9 for the first time a few minutes after I had witnessed the second Theophany, when I left the chapel—now The House of the Saint’s Word, the pilgrimage place—and stood outside under the morning sky and “suddenly found myself alone in that free natural church which man fortunately had not locked and would not lock ever. I sensed that I was the first to enter that free pure place of faith” (The Witness’s Accounts, Notes and Thoughts, The Revelation of Arès ed.1995 “bilingual”, p.384).
An Arès Pilgrim does not have faith in a credo of a religion, but he or she has faith in achievement. For all that his or her faith does not have a lesser sense of the sacred. Quite oppositely, as he or she strives to achieve the Better, he or she is aware of the Creator’s image and likeness reshaping in himself or herself (Genesis 1/27). It is existential, therefore really Christian faith in the sense that Jesus advised men to attain a different existence—different from the short and often painful existence that Adam had opted for (Rev of Arès 2/1-5)—by putting into practice or achieving love, forgiveness, peace, complete liberation of the mind from all prejudices, to which The Revelation of Arès adds the practice of spiritual intelligence.

Consequently, what is an Arès Pilgrim?
He or she is a Christian who sees salvation as a miracle performed by facts, but not performed by words or devotions, a miracle like a lot of miracles on earth within every penitent’s reach, within the reach of any individual, whether a believer or a nonbeliever, that stops sinning (Rev of Arès 30/10 = stops lying, judging, prejudging, hating, envying, committing violence, etc.) and that achieves Good as prescribed by The Revelation of Arès, which is a miracle itself.
As salvation is infectious or diffusive by nature, because based on love which by nature is relational, a penitent is also a penitent harvester. It is by means of this harvest that the world is to change for the better (Rev of Arès 28/7). So an Arès Pilgrim’s faith is also highly apostolic and therefore genuinely Christian.
The mental acceptance of the Word: The Bible, The Quran, The Revelation of Arès or some other Scripture, is a recommended adjuvant  or stimulus to the achievement (Rév of Arès 35/6), but it is not the achievement in itself. So it is definitely obvious that salvation unlike what religion preaches is not found through mental acceptance, but is found through achievement of Good.

It is well-known that what has been called Christianity—a word derived from Christian in The Acts of the Apostles 11/26 & 26/28, Peter1 4/16—is the opening-up of the biblical faith (until then restricted to the Jewish people) to the world after the Creator’s prophet Jesus had preached to Palestine. Sadly, the incipient pure Christianity rather soon got mythicized (dogmatized), regulated, hierarchized, under the influence of the then religions and has stayed in that state of more or less mummified (Rev of Arès xLix/7) aberration so far. A modern man’s attachment to what is nowadays called "Christianity" is the religious mirror of the masses’ attachment to politics, powers and law, which explains why The Revelation of Arès does not distinguish between princes religious, political, legal, financial, etc., who all together have kept the world spiritually dead or at the very least have kept it from living its Life (Rev of Arès 24/3-5). The world has to change (28/7) means has to start leading a spiritual, Christian life at last.

Starting up spiritual life in the world, downgrading and disintegrating the general ideas, that’s what makes the Arès Pilgrims’ condition hard, that’s what makes their mission puzzling to themselves as well as to the masses which they evangelize, all crowded together at a still pagan concept of man and the “order”. But a change very hazardous for Jesus and his disciples, which eventually failed in an old society compulsively superstitious and violent, may end up successful in modern society, even if narrow-minded. This is probably one of the reasons why Wisdom came back to earth in 1974-1977.
Any human being, even the plainest, the humblest, can have a share in the high flying miracle, the return (Rev of Arès i/1) of the initial Christian spirit. No need to be steeped in piety. Anybody can resuscitate as a spiritual being by acting penitent and help resuscitate the spiritual cemetery by harvesting penitents and so can find salvation and sacred glory (Rev of Arès 37/9) as well. Our faith has to be a creative movement in the image of the Creator perpetually in movement (Rev of Arès xxii/10-12), a continuous movement of the mind and soul towards Good in a society that thinks it is very go-ahead, but that we have to set free from the mesmerizing fear to give up its “reasons”. There is no faith alive but free (Rev of Arès 10/10) from every a priori assumption and prejudice, which was typical of the real, plain Christianity of Jesus— The Jesus transfigured in the flesh who appeared and spoke to me in 1974, the Good one or Yuhshoo whom the Father in person mentioned in 1977, the Jesus of Mark, Matthew and Luke once their books are purified by the Fire (Rev of Arès xLi/1-10) of The Revelation of Arès (The Jesus of John and Paul is not recognized by The Revelation of Arès 16/12, 35/12).
Real Christianity is the Path to Salvation the groundwork of which was done by Abraham; it later on developed through ups and downs, sometimes in shame sometimes in honor, and then reached its climax in The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew ch.5 à 7), which would have been infeasible if Abraham had immobilized and smothered its faith under a religion.

Really, man and God have a passion for each other, but not through a credo that declares that Jesus would be God incarnate sacrificed as a ransom for a multitude (Mark 10/45, Matthew20/28) and supposed to save all of the men who confess this dogma. Any victim of the earthly powers is, wherever and whenever, given as a ransom for all of the men who reconcile themselves to peace through submission and silence. This kind of sacrifice has never saved anybody and the earth keeps on turning carrying evil. Good will substitute for evil on earth and, as an extraordinary result, in the universe and man will be eternally saved through the all simple, all Christian fact of being good and refusing to be evil.
Salvation, either salvation of the individual that dies today or salvation of the world on the distant Day when the Light of Good will endlessly spread over everything (Rev of Arès 31/8) is not dependent on the Creator, but on a conjunction of the creature and Creator. The guests invited to the final great feast (Matthew 22/1-10, Luke 14/15-24), perhaps whole mankind in the end (Rev of Arès 31/12), will not be passive guests of Mercy, but the very cooks that will have prepared it.

Our humanity is a large household who have hung old magnificent religious paintings from their walls, but who have never achieved the ideals they have made iconic. Can we see love of the neighbor, forgiveness of all offenses, peace on earth, absolute spiritual and civil freedom, as globally admitted and practiced? No, we can’t. All that or almost all that remains to be achieved. The Arès Pilgrim is the man or woman that offers to join the ranks of the Christians reported missing ever since the very beginnings of Christianity, but still alive in men’s hearts as well as in the global expectations.
