The Original Teachings of Jesus Christ/God-the-Father
“… He alone exists… He has existed since all eternity, and His existence will have no end.
“He has no equal either in Heaven or on the Earth.
“The Great Creator has not shared His power with any living being…, He alone possesses omnipotence.” (The Life of Saint Issa, 5:16-17)
“The Eternal Lawgiver is one. There is no other god, but He. He has not shared the world with anyone, neither has He informed anyone of His intentions.” (The Life of Saint Issa, 6:10)
“… The Lord our God… is all-mighty, omniscient, and omnipresent. It is He Who possesses all wisdom and all light. It is to Him you must address yourselves to be consoled in your sorrows, helped in your works, and cured in your sickness. Whosoever shall have recourse to Him shall not be denied.
“The secrets of nature are in the hands of God. For the world, before it appeared, existed in the depth of the Divine thought; it became material and visible by the will of the Supreme.
“When you address yourselves to Him, become again as children*. For you know neither the past, nor the present, nor the future; and God is the Master of all time.” (The Life of Saint Issa, 11:12-15)
“(He) is a Monocracy with nothing above It. … He is God and Father of everything, the invisible One Who is above everything, Who is indestructible, Who is Pure Light, Whom no eye* can see.
“He is the invisible Spirit. It is not right to think of Him as you think of gods, or something similar. … Everything exists in Him. … He is illimitable, since there was nothing prior to Him to limit Him. … He is immeasurable, since there was no one prior to Him to measure Him. … He is eternal. … He exists eternally. … There is no way to tell His quantity… He is not contained in time…
“He is life-giving Life. He is blessedness-giving blessed One. He is wisdom-giving Wisdom. He is salvation-giving and love-giving Love.
“He is motionless, He resides in calm and silence. … He directs His desires into His Flow of Light. He is the Source of this Flow of Light…” (The Apocryphon of John, 2:25-4:25)
“He is the Original Spirit” (The Apocryphon of John, 4:35; 5:10,15).
“This is the message that we have heard from… (Jesus), and declare unto you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5).

The majority of these words of Jesus were not included in the New Testament by the Church leaders at the end of 4-th century after Jesus’ visit on the Earth. And this predestined the deflection of the majority of Christians from monotheism. They have almost forgotten God-the-Father, though He and the Path to Him were the essence of Jesus’ preachings. Thus, their ontological, epistemological, and methodological views became baseless.
Moreover, in Russia they developed an anthropomorphic* concept of God-the-Father, which is a typical feature of paganism. It is illustrated on the icon Trinity, where God-the-Father is depicted as an old man sitting on a cloud and Jesus as the One Who is sitting to the right of Him. Thus, many people, without thinking, believe like this: “I believe… (in) the Lord Jesus Christ…, … sitting to the right of the Father…”.
But God-the-Father is not a flying old man. He is the Primordial Consciousness, immeasurable in Its vastness, filling the whole universal space in His Abode, and not anthropomorphic at all. He really is infinite. How can one sit to the right of the Infinite?
… Someone, probably, will want to accuse me of the “attempt to destroy the foundations…”, but look attentively at what Jesus, the Founder of Christianity, says about God-the-Father! Or, maybe, do you think that He understood the essence of Christianity incorrectly?
Besides, the practical study of the structure of God proves that Jesus is right…
