thanks cp for your patience with me. I actually release myself from time/space continuum daily, and hopefully moment by moment; as I actually believe we can transcent "time" now.
I am not that far off of u in how I approach scripture, but for me; I needed to know a "why" I can approach scripture from this perspective; when I truly don't think the first century church approached it in a "metaphysical"/spiritual" way, even though they were "spiritual". I truly believe we are in a different age since then.
sorry to be one who seems to always use your posts to question.
Don't ever apologize for 'using' me. It's good to be noticed!
In one sense they are in a different age yet in another sense they are one in Adam/Christ with us. cp
So are we in Adam too? moving from Adam to Christ??
or is Christ the last adam??
Could it be, that we in our perception see ourselves as adam's, but in reality; that is false; the veil truly is torn, the wall has been torn down; and we are no longer bound to Adam.
cp, have you ever read this article?? i'd be interested in your view of it. or anyone else here....
Hi Zeek. I was intrigued and checked out this link and read through the (lengthy) article.
I'm not really sure how I feel about his views. I think he's probably right on on some things, but on others it appears
to me as though he's going against some pretty clear statements of scripture. Maybe it's just my perception, and I just don't spiritually "get it" on those things yet. I know there was a lot of stuff that I felt the same way about when I first began to look into UR, too. For all I know right now, he could be right on. I guess the best thing I can say at this point is that I'm in general agreement with him on some things, and more ambivalent on others.
I'm going to read his other stuff and see how the Spirit uses it in me....
