The Christian Creed: Its Origin and Signification

Cosimo, Inc., 1 d’abr. 2007 - 156 pàgines
How does the story of Christianity and the tenets of the faith fit into the grand scheme of transcultural spirituality? In this inspiring book, first published in 1904, the renowned spiritualist Charles W. Leadbeater places Christianity into the larger context of human religious experience-with a specific eye toward demonstrating how adherents of theosophy, the esoteric philosophy popular at the turn of the 20th century that attempted to reconcile science and religion, could maintain their Christian faith. Seekers after spiritual wisdom and students of comparative mythology will find this a fascinating read. British author CHARLES WEBSTER LEADBEATER (1854-1934) was ordained as an Anglican priest, but later joined the prominent Theosophical Society and traveled to India to study alternative spiritual and occult practices, eventually settling into his life as a clairvoyant and author. His other works include Man Visible and Invisible and The Science of the Sacrament.

Pàgina 120 - The FATHER is made of none : neither created, nor begotten. The SON is of the FATHER alone ; not made, nor created, but begotten. The HOLY GHOST is of the FATHER and the SON; neither made, nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding.
Pàgina 120 - For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity, to acknowledge every Person by himself to be God and Lord; So are we forbidden by the Catholic religion to say, there be three Gods, or three Lords.
Pàgina 120 - As also there are not three incomprehensibles, nor three uncreated : but one uncreated, and one incomprehensible. So likewise the Father is Almighty, the Son Almighty : and the Holy Ghost Almighty. And yet there are not three Almighties : but one Almighty.
