(For purposes of comparison, not for preaching)
“sometimes truth has to lie”?
In the Abrahamic religions there is no version of this whatsoever.
The core text used by the London house church would probably have been
some version of the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures.
Because of their poetry and cultural impact, here's the King James version:
The Ten Commendments from Exodus:
To repeat, in the Abrahamic religions, there is *no* place for any teaching
that "sometimes the truth has to lie".
Not for Crazy Wisdom, either. In the context of the Abrahamic religions madness an affliction, something that alienates us from human fellowship.
To be a guru is to be alienated from human fellowship as well.
There has been a recognition of holy madness, but the true holy fool served God and helped, not exploited, but helped
The true holy fool was capable of love, capable of rejoicing with and lamenting for fellow humans and the human family.
The true holy fool suffered the consequences of his or her behaviors, and did not try to escape the these - and did not shift the misfortunes onto others.
Rather, the true holy fools take the pain of the community upon themselves. They allow themselves to be misunderstood and laughed at.
All this is different from commercial gurus.
For further edification read the Russian Orthodox stories of the holy fools.
