Christianity & Cosmic Consciousness Review

by - 2:11 PM

This book is based on the premise that all things, animate and inanimate, contain as their innermost nature the divine element of "creative advance into novelty," a term coined by Alfred North Whitehead. Such is the nature of all of us, including Jesus. The difference between Jesus and us is therefore merely quantitative. The realization of our common innermost nature is Self-realization that leads to Cosmic Consciousness. The teaching and the sacrifice of Jesus are discussed as ways toward such realization.

The main obstacle to it is not an "original sin" by Adam but a necessary degree of opposition between beings striving for unity, the dilemma of being a part and apart.
The basic identity of all beings is the ground for the mutual support of members of society and for the respect for our environment, not the allegedly God given human and animal rights, and not solely utilitatian considerations. 

Evil is necessary for the manifestation of Good and for the fulfillment of our task as agents of God. It has to be accepted because of our love of life without the hope of compensation.
 
 
This is an interesting book. While I have spent many years growing up in the Baptist church, it wasn't until this past 10 years that I started looking into various other religions like Islam, Buddhism, Mennonite, Amish, and Catholicism. I am always interested in learning about other religions by reading books or speaking to others who practice it. This book gives a different incite to the topics of the Bible and without giving it away, I think it's good for everyone to read. There are plenty of examples from the Bible of how these ideas are portrayed but you have to read it to learn more!
