A primitive christianity

The Christianity of the Priory of Sion is a Christianity of the origins, which draws its roots solely from the teachings of Jesus and does  not suffer the influence of any other structure or belief in the latter.

 Jesus Christ was called "the Nazarene", not only because he was from Nazareth, but also because he had taken the vow of the Nazariteship, which foresaw a ritual condition rigidly marked by very strict customs and rules, among which to refrain from the wine, to avoid any contact with the corpses and that of not cutting the hair (if not at the end of the vote), this last custom among other things also common among the members of the Merovingian dynasty (9). Jesus Christ was, at the same time, also a contemporary of the Essenes (10), from whom he, in our opinion, certainly drew a decisive influence on his journey. Although it was not a being, Jesus certainly came into contact with their tradition and their doctrine. Some Essenes were also Nazarene and they were Nazarene, essentially, while respecting all Jewish observances, it was distinguished not to consume meat, as convinced that eating meat or making sacrifices with it was sacrilege; They were therefore essentially vegetarian and it was forbidden to cook food, it was among them allowed the consumption and preparation of bread and eating fruit.

 After the discovery in Qumran of the so-called "Dead Sea Scrolls", the true roots of thought and therefore of the spirituality which, after Jesus, have been defined as Christians, have been understood much more clearly, coming so to define the original context that welcomed the Messiah himself, establishing in some way, if we want, aa genesis of what we now call Christianity, while not forgetting that there was also a great difference between many of the extreme Essene customs and the thought and action of Jesus, so much that many Essenes had to convert, to be able to recognize him as the Messiah.

 The Priory of Sion is not a church, but a potential spiritual point of reference for everyone and its purpose is not to be through between man and God, but to provide tools and support so that we can be autonomous in their path of communion and approach to God and to the sacredness of his own existence.

Christianity of the Priory of Sion is a Gnostic Christianity, where both the initiate and the faithful who wish to make within it a path, devote themselves with self-denial to the inner work, which consists in looking inside oneself, in meditating, in praying and finally contemplating observing what is within us in the world that surrounds us..

The faith and the desire for communion with God, to be sincere and genuine, and therefore to have a value, cannot derive from a mere act of will, which in turn would be rooted solely by psychological levers of any kind, often correlated to family education or other conditioning that comes from the outside, but rather faith and desire for communion with God must be born as a result of a genuine, authentic and meaningful inner path.

 Therefore faith to be authentic cannot be born of the mind and its articulated branches, but it takes life from spirit and  soul and it is there that must be cultivated; The mind then can and should only be supportive in this journey. Just this is one of the most delicate procedures, although the first phase of the inner work, since, without having forged the base according to the perspective, it’s like having built the foundations on quicksand.

 As each one of us is a ray of God, an emanation or a better one of his "appendix", we each can, to the extent of his abilities, know God by observing within himself, and this possibility is exacerbated exponentially as much as we can come in conscious contact with our spiritual components of soul (psyche) and spirit (Pneuma), putting them in harmony and coordination with the mind; This process is strongly encouraged by an increasingly receptive mind to our spiritual components.

 This doctrine that takes shape and function from a pure and primordial deposit, is something harmonious and coherent, where there are certainly mysteries, but not contradictions, which, great alarm bells, striderebbero with the sense of the whole godly elements of original knowledge, demonstrating the unmistakable trademark of the "human contribution" to the original deposit.
