While this is not a cult per se, it represents numerous
people from housewives to professionals who believe and teach
they are able to be used by Ascended Masters to provide lost
or new truths to Mankind.
Perhaps the best known of all transchannellers is J.Z. Knight
who channels Ramtha, The Enlightened One. What new truths would
Ramtha have everyone know? First with reference to Man's nature, Ramtha, via J.Z. Knight,
says, "What be you? You are God! Man expressing
as God often forgets that which is termed his Godhood... 'Tis
not the way it is. You are a God that needs to remember,"
(Voyage to the New World, Ramtha with D.J. Mahr, p. 127). The wording is a bit awkward because Ramtha, a 3,000-year-old
Ascended Master, is not from America and speaks with an accent.
The second new truth concerns Man's obsession with guilt, sin
and following someone else's rules. "Torment yourself no
more; do not be abusive to yourself any longer. Relinquish
guilt. ... Do not live by rules, live by feelings. Be. Stop
being another's ideal -- be your own," (Ibid, p.
The final bit of truth is given in order to dispel the false
impressions man is currently living under concerning God. Under
a section entitled A God-Maker Extraordinaire, Ramtha's
views are expressed clearly and succinctly. "Ramtha is a God-maker. He is calling forth immaculate,
impeccable, humble entities who know the power that they be
and who live in absolute evenness in perfect alignment with
God, the Father, the Source. "Who is this God, the Father, the Source, that Ramtha continually
speaks of? Ramtha is presenting for your consideration a totally
new and unlimited definition of the essence of God. "Instead of finding a God that is judgmental and vengeful,
a God to be feared, Ramtha has found a God who is to be loved,
a God that is judgeless, who overflows with unconditional love
for the all of creation," (Ibid, pp. 268-269).
These or very similar truths are being spread by transchannellers
through the world. In addition to the channellers themselves,
there are numerous well known celebrities which help spread
these heretical doctrines. Perhaps the best known of all is
Shirley MacLaine. (This is a New Age type group. See New Age Definition).
