Religion and stasis
They asked Jesus if a man should crawl back into his mothers womb to be again delivered when he said that a man must be born again to enter the kingdom of heaven. He answered that we do not know where the wind comes from nor where it goes. Edgar Cayces work relentlessly includes reinarnation and karma and he was a God fearing Christian by all accounts. In the Nag Hammadi it is said that the Master made several very Taoist comments. Split a tree and I am there, overturn a rock and I am there. In one passage, the Master says that He has to work very hard to maintain his level of purity and power. What does that imply? Why has the church rejected reincarnation? More importantly why is it unable to modify its tenets. The Catholic church has thrown off the yoke of infallability. Is it true that that religion is unable to evolve. That which is alive must be in a state of change. God is not dead....religion is asleep.
