Have you ever wondered about the Mysteries of God’s wisdom or the secret to knowledge? Jesus condemned the religious leaders of his day for taking away the “Key to Knowledge,” (Luke 11:52). This remarkable article anthology may have accidentally uncovered some of these ancient mysteries that are now considered TABOO - to help you to read and really understand the Bible. Less
Could the 7 Pillars or dimensions of Wisdom (Pro. 9:1) possibly be related to the “Key to Knowledge?” Hidden Bible Taboos began as one short essay that just for fun proposed a “7 Dimension Theory of Everything” but several readers encouraged me to continue researching it, and I soon discovered that it is the nature of the Universe for things to exist in 7’s. For example, there are 7 types of Matter and 7 forms of Energy in the universe. When we consider “Time,” the 7 Day calendar week continues to be universal and immemorial in its observance among all nations and in all times. Space - our earthly physical space is divided up into 7 Continents, 7 Oceans, and 7 Seas.

After studying the multiple patterns of 7s in the universe’s numerical DNA, I turned my focus to ancient cultures and was shocked to find that in the ancient wisdom writings including Christianity, the number 7 stands for spiritual perfection and divine completeness. For example, the Bible’s book of Isaiah mentions the 7 Spirits of God the Father (Isaiah 11:2). The Apostle John mentions the 7 Stars of God the Son (Rev. 1:20), and the Apostle Paul mentions the 7 Gifts of God the Holy Spirit (Rom. 12:6-8). In addition, Zechariah mentions the 7 Eyes of the Lord, which range throughout the earth (Zech. 4:10). This incredible phenomenon of multiples of 7 cannot be explained by chance or human design. It is in these “7 Pillars of God’s Wisdom,” that I have experienced a paradigm shift that has opened my eyes to see this divine tapestry to gain a better understanding of the Bible.

The 7 Dimension articles were written as independent brief essays over a period of 7 years. After receiving comments from many readers over the years (sometimes secretly) a theme became apparent that seemed to be pointing to the fact that these divine truths of the 7 dimensional (7D) biblical patterns of 7 were not being taught by the professional religious leaders of Catholic and Protestant Churches, because they were forbidden by custom or tradition. They are TABOO. 

This compilation of independent articles indirectly provides a historical overview of the ancient world that leads up to the time of Jesus and the Early Church, and reveals some Taboos related to sex, drugs, violence and racism. The majority of the Taboos in this book however, are not related to ancient mysterious pagan practices. The most significant Taboos in this book are coming from professional church leaders of organized religions of Christianity today who forbid their church members from knowing and practicing what is written in the New Testament, and commanded by Jesus and his Apostles.

Hidden Bible Taboos is a collection of these 7D articles that have accidentally uncovered and systematically integrated ancient religious mythologies; archeological mysteries; scientific and historical facts; and End Time prophecies to reveal the "Christian Sun-god" conspiracy. It is not a formal theological treatise on spirituality and/or religion as it is a work in progress that is very, very far from perfect. With the above disclaimer to having and/or knowing the absolute truth, I would like to present what I believe to be the 7 dimension (7D) origins of ancient religious knowledge and ageless wisdom that have been passed down to us by our ancestors - So put on your 7D glasses!

Dedication: 

This book is dedicated to Peter Waldo (Founder of the Waldensians) and the 50 million other Christians who were persecuted and slaughtered by the Organized Religion of Christianity (Papacy) in the middle ages and later.

About the author

Jim Slobodzien is a Hawaii licensed Clinical Psychologist and Certified Substance Abuse Counselor. Dr. Slobodzien’s credentials include a Doctorate of Psychology in Clinical Psychology, a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology, and a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice, and he holds a Doctorate of Ministry degree. In addition he is an Internationally Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor. Dr. Slobodzien has over 25 years of public service and mental health experience. He has primarily worked in the fields of alcohol/ substance abuse and poly-behavioral addictions in hospital, court and correctional settings. He has taught graduate level psychology courses as an adjunct professor of Psychology and has also maintained a private practice as a mental health consultant.

More importantly, after being raised as a Catholic, and while serving in the military, Jim had a Christian conversion experience in 1977, and he was led to a family-home church model of Christianity where he was taught “The Way” to follow Jesus as a life-style apart from any organized religions of Christianity. This unique training and experience of spending time with Jesus in the Family-home Church has guided his study of the Bible for the last 35 years. It has educated and trained him to understand and articulate the differences and similarities of spirituality and religion to identify and treat those who are caught up in the web of religious addiction. This has given Jim compassion for the unchurched and the victims of spiritual abuse and religious extortion of our present day Organized Christianity. After all, the Bible tells us that Jesus hated the teachings of the Nicholaitans (organized religion), and that the Early Church in an effort to avoid the former pagan practices of building religious temples and financially supporting a specialized professional priesthood, went house to house planting Family-home Churches to reach unbelievers and fulfill the Great Commission.

Jim hopes to inspire others to know, understand, and follow the traditions of the first century Early Church as taught by Jesus and the Apostles and revealed in the New Testament Bible. Dr. Slobodzien has authored several books and many articles including, “Christian Psychotherapy & Criminal Rehabilitation: An Integration of Psychology and Theology for Rehabilitative Effectiveness,” “Poly-behavioral Addiction and the Addictions Recovery Measurement System (ARMS), and “Hawaii and Christian Religious Addiction: A Survey of Attitudes Toward Healthy Spirituality And Religious Addiction Within Christianity.” Dr. Slobodzien has also developed the 7 Dimension Addiction Treatment Model that has been recognized by the Joint Commission in there leading practices library as a best practice in the medical field of addictions. In addition, Jim is a classic hard rock and roll enthusiast and guitarist, and enjoys motorcycle riding.

Recently, there has been a growing interest in biblically based approaches to counseling by spirit filled evangelical scholars and counseling psychologists. They are integrating the research of psychology and religion particularly the Christian Faith, for rehabilitative efforts. Since a review of a number of recidivism studies in various states and in the Federal prison system leads to the conclusion that roughly two-thirds of the offenders released from prison will be reimprisoned, usually for committing new offenses, within a 3-year period, there is a great need for change in our correctional counseling philosophies. When we consider that a large percentage of the inmates that go to jail and prison return to the community unchanged, it can paint a pretty frightening picture of how unsafe our communities really are. Therefore, I believe that it is the church's responsibility to provide an extensive counseling ministry to prisoners through the transformation by the power of Jesus in regeneration and the use of biblical psychological research. This book will focus on the past and present psychological research which has enhanced the integration of psychology and religion. Sweeping generalizations and testimonies of success, unsupported by factual data will not be presented. Articles supporting the idea that Christian conversion is a valid experience in the development of a positive identity will be provided. In addition, an examination of prisoner mental states will be recognized and responded to from a biblical counseling perspective. The design of this investigation will be based upon evaluating certain fundamental Christian behavior characteristics of the conversion experience with the process of personal identity formation. The central theme throughout this book will purport that the Christian faith can play a vital role in the correctional process of an inmate's social adjustment and reintegration into the community.
A literature review was conducted on the relatively newly recognized phenomenon of religious addiction within Christianity. The symptoms, beliefs, and stages of religious addiction along with the characteristics of religiously addictive organizations are also considered. In addition a religious attitudes inventory was designed to assess general spirituality, religious addictive beliefs, religious addictive symptoms, and church leadership practices. The author surveyed ministers, psychologists, psychiatrists, and the general public to assess the relationship between religious addiction and church leadership. More specifically, the purpose of this survey was to attempt to determine if religious addictive beliefs and symptoms are more positively correlated with churches structured upon a self- selected (authoritarian hierarchial) style of leadership versus an elected (collegial) style of church leadership. In the latter, power and authority is equally vested in each of a number of elected church leaders. The results of this survey suggest the possibility of a positive correlation between the self-selected minister group and their responses to religious addictive beliefs and symptoms. Further study of a prospective nature with larger samples is necessary to define this relationship more clearly. Additional research with onsite observation and assessments is necessary to adequately verify the possible link between religious addiction and church leadership practices. Future research must replicate this study with different samples to determine whether results obtained in the present survey generalize to similar groups.
