My wife’s friend said that A Course in Miracles can be used as a self help tool for anyone regardless of their religion. I disagreed and sent her these articles
I told her a Christian couldn’t really believe what A Course in Miracles says. (based on this article quote)
A Course in Miracles denies that our Lord Jesus Christ came to the earth in the flesh. An abstract of “the Course” can be written based solely on two lines of the “spirit” channeled writings. Chapter 8, Section VII, para- graph 7, page 152 states:
“The Bible says, “The Word (or thought) was made flesh.” Strictly speaking this is impossible, since it seems to involve the translation of one order or reality into another.”
Contrast the “spirits” channeled words to the inspired words of St.
John (1 John 4:1-3):
" Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God. This is the spirit of anti- christ, of which you heard that it was coming, and now it is in the world already."
I’d like to hear your comments on A Course in Miracles. Good and Bad. (regardless of your religion or lack of religion)
