Who Said That?

"I was totally fascinated by the New Testament. I must have read it a few thousand times. One day I was reading the Gospel of John 10: 30, where Jesus says, `I and God are one.' The crowd immediately wants to stone him for blasphemy. But he quotes a psalm that says `You are Gods, sons of the most high,' which he tells them was addressed to `those to whom the word of God came.' He clearly sees himself as equivalent to that group.

I interpreted this as `those who have knowledge of God are God.' In Eastern philosophical systems there's an established idea of a path through personal consciousness to a collective conscience to a universal conscience, which people call the divine. I concluded that Jesus must have experienced this consciousness, and that he must have followed a path. The story is about that evolution."

I'd say the Dali Lama, but I can't really picture him saying "totally." Maybe Spong?

"They are posted as updates to the original post"

This is true for all except the very first one in the series. Still waiting for an answer on that one.

Chopra? Wasn't he the gangster rapper killed in a shootout in Vegas (LA?)? Could be rapper Pee Diddy. Anyway, isn't it interesting that if you read the NT enough times you can learn most anything. Read Rev. 3:20 enough times and you'll eventually see that decisional regeneration must true. I hear that the original picture of Jesus knocking on a door that doesn't have a handle (the picture that 1611 KJV only people believe that the translators used to interpret this verse from Latin to Greek to English) has been found and will be used to replace the words of 3:20 in future printings of the 1611 KJV since one picture is better than 31 words (ESV).

"I must have read it [the New Testament] a few thousand times"; sure, that's what you did. My guess is a liar. Never mind all that context stuff; Jesus had some God consciousness - amazing.
