All messages that
you will find in these volumes are a result of automatic writings received
through James Padgett. In a nutshell, automatic writing is when a spirit
takes control of the brain and hand of a mortal and communicates his/her
thoughts through the mortal to pencil and paper. James Padgett often noted
that he could not comprehend what he was writing because it came to fast.
He had to read over what his hand had just written in order to determine
what the spirit was trying to communicate. The physical nature of the
writing is a stream of connected letters which can make interpretation
difficult. You can see an example here.
Considering the nature of the communications and the potential difficulty
in translating the messages, there have been several attempts at editing
the Padgett messages thus far. Fortunately the celestials who communicated
were intentionally redundant so that their messages would not be dependant
upon the interpretation. This being the case, the choice of which volume
to read is a matter of personal preference.
The "Foundation Church of New Birth" publishes the "True Gospel Revealed
Anew By Jesus" volumes. These are as close to the original messages as
you can get. That being the case they demonstrate more accurately the
personality of the spirit. However, since there are no, or very few, grammatical
corrections these volumes can be difficult to read.
The "Foundation Church of Divine Truth" publishes the "Angelic Revelations
of Divine Truth" volumes. These have been edited for punctuation and grammer
and are easier to read by some. Regardless of which volume you choose
to read, the important underlying truths remain the same and are easily
understood. The celestials have made it easy for us to comprehend. There
is no reading between the lines - the truths are there in black and white.
