It's no use condemning Israel for this and
ISIS for that as long as we have not turned round the
violent mens' beliefs against themselves, for they are
also God's creatures, only blind sinners. Here's the
real tragedy: Man's moral inadequacy and insanity. When
I was a young man doing my military duty in the French
Navy I was unconscious of the evil I might do. Nobody
had shown me a different way and like most men of this
sinful era I had no natural gift for goodness. Nowadays
good and respect for life are principles to be taught."
My reply to a
very dear brother’s Facebook entry on August 24,
From 1974 until recently I read the
Quran as if I crossed a spiritual monkey bridge. This
monkey bridge, which I negociated laboredly, is now
wobbling and cracking, so I stop.
Loaded down with the heavy Quran my soul cannot cross over
anymore. Which is the Quran ? The one I open in front
of me or the one read in the Islamic State, ISIS, by the
Muslims who behead or slit the throats of the unfaithful?
How can you pass, even by balancing perilously, from
the exordial words In the Name of God the Merciful the
Compationate, that every sura is topped with, or
from verses like Muhammad 47/4 : If you encounter
infidels, hit them in the neck and bring them down, then
chain them up, but once the war is over set them free...
to the cutthroats of the Islamic State, ISIS, now
called Caliphate by its supporters? Where in the Quran
does Caliph Abu-Bakr al Baghdadi hear God tell him to kill
infidels? Doesn’t the Quran say, Never compel
belief from anybody in religion (The Cow 2/256)?! The
time has come to stop searching in the Scripture, so as to
bear out murders, chains of cues among which a single link
seems strong and the additional links are vague enough not
to deny the former straight out.
As to me I can see the doubtful links well; they make
my monkey bridge rot, so it cracks and collapses into the
uncertainty waters. I can no longer cross from The
Revelation of Arès or the Sermon on the Mount to
the Quran. The Political Islam that I can now observe is
no more heir to the Quran than Israel is heir to the Old
Testament and the Church Christianity heir to the Sermon
on the Mount!
Now I need a wide sturdy footbridge instead of a narrow
shaky monkey bridge, so that I may cross to the other
bank, from which for the time being I can hear the lip
of the wicked one pour out his hatred and threats on
Allah’s behalf, but on which I cannot see any more light,
sat all (Rev of Arès vii/12).
The Revelation of Arès says that Muhammad
was the wisest and the most highly valued (Rev
of Arès 2/9) of the apostles, the voice
facing the dawn (xiii/15), that is, the apostle
sent out to a world which could become just and good at
last. But where is that world?s
There is no such happy world ; we Jews, Christians,
Muslims have to create it.
I have together with the Arès Pilgrims read the Quran
as God’s Word for forty years.
We have also helped get the Westerners to know the Holy
Book of Islam for forty years and curb the Christians’
prejudices against it, the metaphysicists or rationalists'
views on it, but in the face of the murderous horrors
committed on Islam’s behalf in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq
and elsewhere, how can people feel about it? They think
that this Holy Book is as bad as the Bible.
There are terms conflicting, or violent, or misread in the
Quran as well as the Bible, because those books were
published by unclean men, so they are unclean. Those
books, that prophets had listened to, were published by
believers with ill-unblocked ears and unrefined cultures,
men tough and ill with prejudices who, as they couldn’t
grasp the Word in its entirety, were unable to convey the
Divine Suavity. The too much loving Father (Rev of
Arès 12/7) merciful, compassionate (Quran, a
preamble to every Sura) and wise has not
prevented those men limited by mental inadequacy ever
since Adam’s bad choice (2/1-5) from
acting badly, because He has created man free (10/10) and
cannot withdraw freedom from man unless He renounces His
Cration, that is, renounces Himself in a way.
But God is good at awaiting (Rev of Arès 25/9, 28/12,
Even in parts of the Scripture not much spoiled by man’s
inadequacy you can see that the Wise one, who is out
of time, is aware that sin has made man slow
and inlaid him into time (Rev of Arès 12/6). God
has adjusted his Word to mens’ time and done so in
two registers : the register of His eternal Truth
and the register of the immediate human truth.
Let’s realize too, that just as the Bible has books
written by man (Rev of Arès 16/12, 35/12) in it the
Quran probably has Hadiths (words and edicts by Muhammad)
in it. which the transcribers of the Quran, particularly
in Caliph Uthman’s days, were unable to tell from God’s
Let’s remind too that God loves men, but that men
understand Him only through their languages which are
inadequate, imperfect, ambiguous..
Eventually let’s never forget that the Word has not been
given man to be believed, but to be achieved (Rev of
Arès 35/11). The Revelation of Arès reminds that
faith is achievement of Good, but not
blind submission to so-called laws. God is the Creator ;
he is not a lawmaker. Unfortunately it is from this
angle that religion has led most men astray.
Those difficulties and misinterpretations have numbed and
mechanized large numbers of Quran believers, just as they
had numbed and mechanized large numbers of Bible
believers. They have made large numbers of other humans
hostile and distraught. For instance, in Nice, Southern
France, one of our converts has suddenly begun stating
that Allah was another name of Satan. How could we refrain
from both understanding and worrying about such moral
Under these circumstances what does The Revelation of
Arès tell us to do?
It tells us to stop hallowing and dinning into the world
abstrusities, which reason would reject if their
dedicators were not industrious at laying them down and
perpetuating them in the form of religions compulsory (Rev
of Arès 36/10) and even antagonistic, because they
are political under their piety masks.
It tells us to gain love (Rev of Arès 7/5,
25/7, 32/3, etc.), peace (13/6, 36/17, xxv/11, etc.),
intelligence (32/5) and freedom (10/10), which make
up the Good common to all men and their Father.
The Father asks men to remove the bandage from the mummia
(Rev of Arès xLix/7) so that they may
perceive His Marvels (33/8), which lie (28/6) beneath
the Scripture, because Good is Sanctity, but
the Scripture is not; it is just black and white,
cerebrality, matter and especially easy excuse.
The ethereal, unchanging, inexpressible, non writable Marvel
of the Creator’s Word, which is out of time, will
gush forth from man’s lower transcripts. Then we will feel
the Breath (Rev of Arès 4/10, 10/12, etc.) of
happiness and hope, from which Life will reappear
(24/5), the soul, the potential gateway to
This requires humbleness, which is the source of
light, and love, which is the prime mover
We Arès Pilgrims endeavor to read the Bible and Quran in
the holy suavity of creative faith. The Creator, the
Father of the Universe, who is aware that the test of
time, spite and hypocrisy have long ruined his
Revelations, sent to us an infallible interface in
1974-1977 : The Revelationn of Arès. It is the
gate through which believers are going to leave the night
and the dissensions between them to become brothers of
the Dawn (Rev of Arès xxxv/7).
Now, thanks to The Revelation of Arès,
well-informed Arès Pilgrims naturally read the Bible
dodging man’s books; they see only the parts of
the Word that would not thwart The Revelation of Arès
if they were introduced into it.
But as for the Quran, which they can only read in
translations here and there shaky from Arabic, a synthetic
language, to European analytic languages, they have been
lacking a clear bridge. Not only do they have only a
monkey bridge, but it is wobbling and cracking under the
horrors perpetrated on the Quran’s behalf. They have read
the Quran forty years, but have never that obviously
realized that they cannot pass from The Revelation of
Arès to the Quran and vice versa as easily as they
Now, o Marvel, the Father is inspiring Muslim
brothers, He has given them perceptiveness. They have
understood that the Quran is still far from reaching its
absolute Clarity, which is obvious within Islam itself.
They are perfectly aware that a wide sturdy footbridge is
needed to give the Westerners capability of passing from
the words to the Core and the Muslims ability to
go up to the Core of Cores (Rev of Arès xxxiv/6).
This footbridge is under construction currently.
Who is its architect? An Arabian brother, a Quranic
scholar. He is taken in the beam of inspiration of the Master
of the Worlds (Quran, Al Fatiha). With courage
(Rev of Arès 14/3) and intelligence (32/5)
he has set about explaining the Quran in the Light
of The Revelation of Arès.
This significant major work has been on the go a few
months. Is it nearing completion or far from it? We don’t
know. I have read drafts of it finely-worked already,
translated from Arabic into French. I feel overawed, but
the Father has put me in charge of a mission, which my
emotions can’t sway. I know that like any fundamental
evolution the work of our Eastern brother will require a
lot of sensitivity in order to captivate the masses of
routine-minded Islam, which dislikes evolution, and among
which we can see a great number of Muslims quite silent
about the criminal action of ISIS. Our brother’s work as
well as my thinking on it require prayer (Rev of Arès
39/2), caution (35/10), patience and advice
(35/7) before we can decide on when and how we will
be able to make the suddenly dazzling Quran spread over
the huge Field of achieved faith.
The Father -- that’s for sure -- has through a brother
from Islam given us something bound to replace the monkey
bridge, the footbridge by which we will cross from the
shadowy light to the Light and bridge the gap
between the Evangelic Word and the Quranic Word.
I think it useful and fair to say a few words to my
brothers and sisters about the matter right now.
