Oprah, Fundamentalism And New Age Christianity

Christian fundamentalism has never escaped the box of the Council of Nicaea in the 4th century.

The bishops of this council were regarded like prophets of the New and Old Testament by fundamentalists. They took the inner spiritual path of Christ and dogmatized it into a man-made religious insurance policy for getting to Heaven.

The battle of the "Gospel Within" (i.e. The Gnostics) and "Gospel Without" (i.e. The Roman Church) reached a turning point at Nicaea. The emperor, Constantine, threw his support behind the Catholic Establishment. The Gnostics were branded as heretics going to Hell and the followers of the Roman bishops were blessed and going to Heaven.

Fundamentalists have always been very critical of those that don't share their literal and dogmatic views of scripture. This is seen in their condemntion of Christian sects like the Mormons or the Jehovah Witnesses.

This criticism even extended to Oprah Winfrey who discussed some of her religious views on her TV show. They mocked her and said she started her own religion, "The Church Of Oprah".

My own particular fixation with Christianity was the whereabouts and condition of the early church from 100 AD to the present/2008.

Christians have "The Mind of Christ" and we're connected to each other like a grapevine. This should give us access to the memories and experiences of millions of Christians who went before.

I have written many blogs on my visions of the Christian Brotherhood as it now exists. Please check the entries on the right panel.

I believe we've made first contact with "The Federation Of Jesus Christ". All it took was "One Moment In Time".
