The Barron Version Of Christian Mysticism
In theological(crop?)circles, there are long-winded sermons on "mysticism" and "Christian Mysticism." However, I will not continue the verbose pontification on these matters in this blog.

There's some virtue making a homily short and to the point. Here it is:

My biblical basis for 20 and 21st century Christian Mysticism is from "Acts Of The Apostles."

Chapter 2... Quoted on the Day of Pentecost by Peter (Act.2:16-21):
"And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions."

Visions of the future and the past have been very plentiful in sci/fi writers of the 20th century like Gene Rodenberry, George Lucas, Issac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, L. Ron Hubbard, Arthur Clarke, etc.

From the real experience with Jesus Christ and the medieval experience in later centuries, the early church has moved into a position as an "ADVANCED CIVILIZATION" which has been contacted by many of today's sci/fi writers.

The mystical experience of "Jesus and the Early Christian Church" in the 21st century can be achieved by anyone today. Read the second definition of mysticism:
Main Entry: mys?ti?cism
2 : the belief that direct knowledge of God, spiritual truth, or ultimate reality can be attained through subjective experience (as intuition or insight)

Hopefully, you can relate to some inner truth of your own.
Drop me a line expressing your own views.
