Who Said That?


"These two versions of Jesus--the sketchy historical figure and the abstract theological creation--hold a tragic aspect for me, because I blame them for stealing something precious: the Jesus who taught his followers how to reach God-consciousness. I want to offer the possibility that Jesus was truly, as he proclaimed, a savior. Not the savior, not the one and only Son of God. Rather, Jesus embodied the highest level of enlightenment. He spent his brief adult life describing it, teaching it, and passing it on to future generations. Jesus intended to save the world by showing others the path to God-consciousness."

Who said that?  Please, no google searches please.  Leave your guess in the comments section below.

It sounds like Rev Spong, but I'm going to guess Brian McLaren.

Oh, and I find your show "The White Horse Inn" very interesting and stimulating.

Deepak Chopra?

Oprah or some Reformed theologian who has bought into the more extreme beliefs of the Emergent Movement- I do not think Roger Olson is that far gone

"God-consciousness. "

Oprah's current spiritual mentor of the week, Eckhart Tolle. Or one of his like minded ilk.

Please, tell me it's noone pretending to be a Christian.

The Dalai Lama?, Satan?, Al Gore?

Chopra... in his new book?

I'll take C T Hall's discarded option: my guess is Spong.

Gotta be Deepak Chopra in his new book "The Third Jesus".

This sounds a lot like something a brother-in-law I used to have would say. He was fully immersed in Transcendental Meditation back in the early/mid 70's and saw no conflict between the self-seeking beliefs of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and the constructs of core Christianity. In fact, he went on to earn himself a BD from some liberal seminary in the Midwest and, last I heard, had a counseling practice someplace.

I would have guessed Nancy Palozzi quoting from the same bible translation where she gets her earth-friendly environmental passage.

Before I looked at the comments, I immediately thought it must be Deepak Chopra, but I have to think it may be Eckhart Tolle. They're both pushing the same junk...

Chopra or anyone of the emergents. Maybe Bell or McClearn.
