Hi David

>I base it on the teachings of the mystics--Jesus......

Now I am not familiar with the other "mystics", but I am familiar with Jesus... This is not what He said.

Jesus claimed to be God incarnate (the I AM , the existing one, the YHWH who spoke to Moses in the burning bush), something which you don't seem to have read or heard of.

From another post of yours:

>>As for "Christ", there have been thousands of Christs--all real--and there
will be thousands more. And yes, we do need them--they are "the way".
But they must be alive in the physical world, not dead for 2000 years.

Do you include Jesus as one of these Christs, and if so how do you explain the contradiction with your theory to these statements made by Jesus:

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him may be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men have loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. {reproved: or, discovered}
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Jesus states clearly that He is the only way to God, whoever does not believe this is condemned (only begotten son....)

John 14:6 Jesus saith to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me.

John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify concerning me:

John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send him to you.

John 16:13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all the truth: for he shall not speak from himself; but whatever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.

John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

John 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified through the truth. {sanctified…: or, truly sanctified}

John 18:37 Pilate therefore said to him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

John 18:38 Pilate saith to him, What is truth?

Jesus said that He left so that we might have direct access to God through the Holy Spirit. We are sanctified through truth which is God's word (logos) and Jesus is the word(logos).

Blessings
Banah
