ESOTERIC CHRISTIANITY

May 20, 2012

When studying the Gnostics many years ago, I recognized that I was more of a Gnostic Christian than the traditional Protestant Christian.  From www.thepearl.org:  “A gnostic is a person who believes that salvation is gained through the acquisition of divine knowledge or gnosis. Gnostic Christians believe that the knowledge necessary for salvation has been revealed through Jesus Christ. Gnostics recognize that this world is subject to powers of darkness that distort our concept of reality. When gnostics speak of salvation, they mean being freed from these illusions of darkness so that they can perceive reality.” There is much more information on the reality of the Gnostics available via Internet or in printed form

In recent decades, I’ve come to identify with the label “Esoteric Christian.”  The following information on the subject of esoteric Christianity is from various sources, including www.wikepedia.org:   In esoteric Christian teaching, authors such as Max Heindel make a distinction between Jesus the man and the Christ, which is the true or divine nature. Heindel considers Jesus to be a high initiate of the human life wave (which evolves under the cycle of rebirth), a singularly pure type of mind, vastly superior to the great majority of the present humanity. Jesus was educated during his youth among the Essenes and thus prepared himself for the greatest honor ever bestowed upon a human being: to deliver his pure, passionless, highly evolved physical body and vital body which was already attuned to the high vibrations of the life spirit in the moment of the baptism to the Christ being for His ministry in the physical world. Christ is described as the highest spiritual being of the life wave called archangels and has completed union with the second facet of God (Christ the Son), aka the solar logos. 

In esoteric Christian teachings, there is a clear distinction between the cosmic Christ, or Christ without, and the Christ within. Christ within is also called the “soul body.”  According to St. Paul (in some translations), it is sown a soul body and raised a spiritual body. According to this tradition, the Christ within is regarded as the true Savior who needs to be born within each individual in order to evolve toward the "the new heavens and a new earth.” The Second Coming of the Christ is not in a physical body, but in the new soul body of each individual at the etheric level of the planet where man "shall be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air."  When this event shall be is not a part of human knowledge.
