The Limits of Jesus in His Church
Isn’t it amazing how restricted we are from the spirit world. First God gave the Commandment to have no other God but He. So we shut down all spiritual knowledge outside of the specific consciousness of God. Then we were given access to one soul as proof that both God exists and souls enter an afterlife. From that restriction we have had to figure everything out spiritually.
What an interesting prison we are in. And more interesting, that we have accepted it.
We are trying awfully hard now to break out of this prison. But when reality to us, in essence, is only God, humans and the equivalent of inert matter, we are having a very difficult time of it.
Creation is much more than this simple trinity. And Creation is much more simple than our complex theology. But the Christian perspective is wholly human-centered, as much as we think it is God-centered. God is defined by the services He renders unto us.
What is outside of this pipe, with humans at the one end and God at the other? Science is making great gains with its perspective using physics. How can we find out what is outside of the pipe spiritually to help us answer the question we have not been able to answer: what is Jesus? Who are we? And what is reality if we know it is something fundamentally spiritual?
Those are dangerous questions when one has to confront them. Are Christians as courageous as the early scientists were in challenging our taboos? Are we ready to admit that we misinterpreted the Commandment? Yes, we shall have no other God, but the Creator did not say that the spirit world did not exist. Just don’t worship the other spirits as God. We dropped the ball on that one.
Now we have wiped out all other spiritual knowledge in our ignorance and we are scrambling to explore what’s left in the world to see how the Church can absorb it like it did Aristotle, Plato and Socrates. Jesus is the center leading to God. He is the light in the darkness, but we created much of the darkness ourselves. Now, we do not know what is in the darkness that the Light is standing in. We are fixated on the human soul that got so close to God. Yet why have we made no progress in the debate about who He is? What was the condition of His reality that we cannot grasp? He knew He was standing in something more than the inert matter we could perceive. And the inert matter responded. How could He manipulate matter with just a thought? What made Him so special as to be chosen to see what we were not allowed to? And more importantly, what did He know that we have barely penetrated?
Do we really appreciate our limits? Do we know what creates our limits? We only have the Bible, coincidences that answer prayers, and the wisps of wisdom that come to our thoughts. Is there anything more? Are we allowed to know it yet?
