Marshall Vian Summers claims to be receiving a new message from God. Over the past thirty years, Summers has recorded more than 800 spoken revelations while living in seclusion in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies. He claims these revelations come from God and are being given to him by angelic emissaries.

When asked about his "New Message," Summers said, "It was revealed to me by an Angel of God, a powerful, mysterious presence that filled my mind and the surrounding environment with grace."

In the beginning, Summers found believers in his wife, his son and a small group of committed students. Yet now, a growing number of people are staking their faith in Summers' claims, and most live far from Colorado.

From South Korea to Uganda to Saudi Arabia, people are congregating virtually on Summers' website, and his organization regularly releases translations in seven languages.

With followers worldwide, Summers' organization has turned to live internet broadcasting to preach the word. One Sunday a month, Summers presents via webcast an "original revelation of the New Message from God" to his viewers.

And on February 6th, Summers will descend Moses-like from his proverbial mountain in the Rockies to offer his newest digital stone tablets from God. This month's release: a 47-minute revelation entitled "Deeper Recognition in Relationships."


Thoughts?  Besides "He is full of crap."

Exactly!!!  People so desperate for attention, with such a huge need to feel important, that they lose touch with reality in a desperate attempt to transform or escape from their mundane reality.  Wouldn't it make much more sense for humanity to simply try to take care of each other and make each other happy with out lot?

Hi Mo,

 

Marshall is actually a very humble man and certainly not desperate for attention.  His life is far from mundane.  A person who has, in a state of revelation, received Teachings from the Angelic Presence, which total over 9000 pages on over 800 occasions for over 25 years, certainly does not have a mundane life.  

What would it mean for humanity to simply try to take care of each other or make each other happy?  How would we go about accomplishing that?  Do we really understand what would make one another truly and profoundly happy?       

Wow…… 30 years…. Living in seclusion…. Foot hills of Colorado….Sounds like a lot of work just to find a scam on how to get tithing and not have to pay taxes….. Doesn’t he now he should have just opened a Church of Christ Church in some crappy strip mall?
My guess is that if the 30 years of seclusion story is true, then it is a symptom of the same emotional dysfunction that caused his break from reality.

Hi Jason,

Yes, it is a lot of work and preparation for many years.  In fact, he had to undergo preparation for many years before receiving New Message from God through the Angelic Presence.  The Message encompasses almost all aspects of human life, the Great Waves of Change occuring in the world currently, life in the universe, contact with intelligent life, and the extraterrestrial intervention that has been going on for many decades, etc.  The Message is over 9000 pages received by the Messenger in a state of revelation on over 800 encounters in the last 25 years with the Angelic Presence that oversees this world. 

So, yes, it is too much work just to find a scam because it is not a scam.

 

   

Or just throw in with the other religion that has UFO crap at its core - the Church of Scientology.

Hi Oliver,

I do wish the UFO phenomena were phony as well. Unfortunately, I have witnessed them on four different occasions. So I know the extraterrestrial beings are, indeed, here.

Get something from them. Take a photo, get some souvenir, something that proves you've seen the aliens personally. Because, to be honest, I have always wondered why the aliens supposedly pick up the obscure, rural, or not very intelligent person to abduct or otherwise contact. If they truly want... well, anything, then they should make their presence known, publicly. Because without concrete proof, your aliens are no more real than Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, or Jesus Christ to me.

Hi Rocky Oliver,

Do you think abductees who had been taken against their will, often out of their beds in the middle of night could grab a camera so that can take a photo of the extraterrestrial abductors? 

Most people these days think scientology is a complete load of crap, and most non-mormons think the story behind the mormon faith is complete horseshit.  But when told that I think their own belief is nonsense, like the thousands of others that came before and the thousands sure to come after, that is where they draw the line.  Surely THEY would not be foolish enough to stake their entire life on (in the christian sense) a bunch of stories written by anonymous people thousands of years earlier about people that we can't even prove existed historically.

My mom is a very faithful catholic (and raised her kids as such), and in fact I have never declared my atheism to her because it would break her heart, but sometimes for fun I will bring up a story such as the one above that I know she will think is ridiculous, just to see how she reacts.  And predictably, she will say they obviously have mental problems or are snake oil salesmen.  It doesn't occur to her or most christian people that they are so willing to dismiss MODERN DAY people who declare that they have spoken to god (unless they call themselves a pastor or a priest or a pope), but the authors of the bible declaring that they spoke to god via a burning bush or from a cloud or whatever?  No that is not ridiculous -- that's what actually happened.

I, too, had serious doubts about Marshall as the Messenger of this time.  I, too, thought this might be some sort of scam. 

 

The only thing I found when I became a student of Knowledge was how the New Message resonated within me.  

 

 

 

 

Yes, well if you put it that way then it must be all true and stuff. Now you can sign me up too.

Oh no wait, knowledge.. how do you know what you know again? Was it really about resonating frequencies?
