I agree - what I meant to imply was that in theory, the idea of manifesting or accessing (words fail) Christ from within should be the cornerstone of Christianity, but in practice, religion can only pretend to play lip-service to this idea.Corvinus said:BHelmet,
I do not think Pauls end game has much similarities with mainstream Christianity, only in writing, because mainstream is all about Law and even more about obedience to religion until heaven comes by itself, and Christ living in human person is seen as blasphemy because we are seen as unworthy and seperate from divine, distinct, unimportant and unrelated in anyway.
Yes, Christ manifest in human form is blasphemy to this day. If "Jesus" actually walked the earth today and 'talked the talk', they'd have to kill him 'again'! An ultimate tragicomedy.
