31 - Truth in Jesus 1

Sometimes I think the reason these sermons were unspoken is because MacDonald knew they would fall on deaf ears. This one challenges the would be Christian to obey, one of the most difficult areas for the "churched" Christian to comprehend.

For some the idea of being adopted by God is a stumbling block. MacDonald was one of those. He tears into Scripture to represent God as a loving Father and not just some nice guy who picks up strays.

Still in the Prologue, Kabir explains to Dharam Das, the reality. Using many analogies we sneak up on an understanding of what it takes for one to be liberated from the prison of the sense mind, false personality and the laws that bind us to them.

History, as we know it, is sketchy at best. Revisionism makes it even more suspect. Some will find this look at the Exodus story from a different point of view disturbing. Nevertheless, since our aim is to expand our consciousness, raise our level of being and get new meaning, this is useful.
