RTTM-SUNS Class # 3 Christ
- Who-are-you-praying-to It has lots more than posted here in “praying to” mention in the post, we explain it in class.
- There-is-only-one-god-2 the Christ God
- Christ pre-existed but Jesus didn’t
In a previous class, we learn that God is an entity that we cannot explain.
Also, we learn that God is not part of our universe or multiverse.
Jesus of Nazareth has nothing to do with God, and he is not God, son of God, yes, like all of us.
The essence of God
At the creation, a phenomenon appears at the same time, we do not know what it is, but we see its effects. As we are Nontrinitarian and still Christian, we need a Christ. This Christ is the essence of God.
God himself is not with us, but his essence is present. We name this presence Universal Christ or also commonly call “Cosmic Christ.”
Where the Universal Christ manifests himself? In the Noosphere
The Noosphere – literally, “mind-sphere” or Earth’s mental sheathe – is a word and concept jointly coined by Jules le Roi, French philosopher and student of Henri Bergson, Jesuit paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and Russian geochemist, Vladimir Vernadsky, in Paris, 1926. At the root of the primary definition of Noosphere is a dual perception: that life on Earth is a unity constituting a whole system known as the biosphere; and that the mind or consciousness of life, the Earth’s thinking layer, constitutes a unity that is discontinuous but coextensive with the entire system of life on Earth, inclusive of its inorganic support systems. A third critical premise arising from the first two is that the Noosphere defines the inevitable next stage of terrestrial evolution, which will subsume and transform the biosphere.
And because the Noosphere is part of the Earth’s Geosphere:
- Lithosphere: crust, upper mantle
- Hydrosphere: oceans, seas, rivers, springs, falls, wells, lakes
- Zooshere / Scocioshere: Animals and vegetals
- Atmosphere: troposphere 12km, stratosphere 50km, the ozone layer, mesosphere 80km, thermosphere 320km
We can see the effects on earth of the Cosmic Christ. The Universal Christ is not limited to the Noosphere, but goes across our universe, but we will limit ourselves to the Earth, this is what interest us in this study.
The Universal Christ who is not God himself but behave towards humain as he is, so from that we can deduct is qualificatifs:
- God-Christ Omnipotence (limitless power)
- God-Christ Omniscience (limitless knowledge)
- God-Christ Eternity (God is not bound by time)
- God-Christ Goodness (God is wholly benevolent)
- God-Christ Unity (God cannot be divided)
- God-Christ Simplicity (God is not composite)
- God-Christ Incorporeality (God is not material)
- God-Christ Immutability (God is not subject to change)
- God-Christ Impassability (God is not affected)
How can we explain Christ is the essence of God
We do not know what it is, but we see its effects, we can demonstrate it via two movies:
Merlin: The Dragon. A beast of such power that if you were to see it whole and all complete in a single glance, it would burn you to cinders.
Arthur: Where is the Dragon?
The Force is a mysterious energy field created by life that binds the galaxy together. (AKA SUNS: Christ)
The Force is a metaphysical and ubiquitous power in the Star Wars fictional universe. It is wielded by “Force-sensitive” characters throughout the franchise: heroes like the Jedi who seek to become one with the Force, while the Sith and other villains exploit the Force and try to bend it toward their will. The Force has been compared to aspects of several world religions, and the phrase “May the Force be with you” has become part of the popular-culture vernacular.
The bodies of some Jedi vanish when they die, becoming “one with the Force” SUNS Teaching the Souls when someone die become one with the Noosphere.
Another manifestation of the Cosmic Christ
We call it Mother Nature.
Mother Nature is a personification of nature, aka Cosmic Christ, that focuses on the life-giving and nurturing aspects of nature by embodying it, in the form of the mother.
Again Christ is not limited to earth but the whole universe.
The Cosmic Christ is a view of Christology which emphasizes the extent of the essence of God “the Christ’s” concern for the cosmos. The biblical bases for a cosmic Christology is often found in Colossians, Ephesians, and the prologue to the gospel of John.
SUNS: Modified text from Wikipedia
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was among the first to speak again of a Cosmic Christ in the 1920s and 1930s. He understood the Incarnation as bringing the historical Jesus, where we change Jesus for the Universal Christ, who is a metaphysical phenomena into the material world and, through evolution, leading all of creation towards perfection in the Omega Point.
Later scholars, such as Joseph Sittler, Matthew Fox, and Jürgen Moltmann, would likewise speak about the need to reclaim a cosmic Christology to speak about Christ’s concern for creation.
The universe is a the creation of God’s emanation into the Universal Christ or Cosmic Christ whom created the universe or multiverse. The Cosmic Christ is the belief that reality or that all-things compose an all-encompassing, emanation from God-Christ in forms of relationships between reality and divinity.
We do not worship the Cosmic Christ, we use Christ pictures, images, sculptures to demonstrate is manifestation like here:
All other images, sculptures, or else of that person call Jesus and Judas who are use in our Classes, Chapel or our manse are representing the human historic persons.
