Our approach at Agathos is steeped in the philosophy of the Good God Theology, where love, light, and inherent goodness are the heart of divine understanding. We offer thought-provoking articles, spiritual exercises, and inspiring narratives to help you navigate your spiritual path. From exploring the concept of divine dualism to understanding the role of Jesus Christ as a bridge between the spiritual and the physical, our content covers a broad spectrum of Good God Theology.
At Agathos, we believe that marriage is a sacred covenant between a man and a woman. Our Marriage Ministry is designed to help couples build strong, healthy, and long-lasting relationships. Through our counseling and education programs, we provide couples with the tools they need to navigate the challenges of married life and grow closer to each other and to God.
Path of Awakening: The Marcionite Journey
Inspired by Marcion's teachings, we encourage the path of awakening through love, compassion, and understanding. This path recognizes the divine essence within every individual and promotes a life lived in alignment with this divine potential. It asks us to be bearers of love and mercy, even amidst life's sufferings and challenges.
Practices and Rituals
To facilitate this spiritual journey, we encourage practices that promote self-reflection, mindfulness, compassion, and a sense of unity. These could include meditation, conscious acts of kindness, mindful dialogue, and communal gatherings.
Core Belief: Universal Goodness
At the center of this spiritual belief system is the concept of Universal Goodness, inspired by Marcion's portrayal of the Loving God. We hold that the divine essence of love, compassion, and inherent goodness pervades all of existence. This belief acts as the guiding light for our spiritual quest and offers us a pathway to a deeper connection with ourselves and the universe.
With an understanding of our inherent goodness and the acceptance of life's dualities, we believe that individuals can embark on a journey to find a transcendent purpose. This is a purpose that goes beyond the physical realm and enters into the spiritual, where the quest for meaning, connection, and a sense of belonging in the universe is realized.
We believe that the longing for connection is a longing for spiritual unity with all of existence. To satisfy this longing, we foster a community of support and shared spiritual growth. In this community, individuals can engage in dialogues, share their spiritual experiences, and support each other on their journey towards understanding the Loving God within and without.
