The Walter Wink reference is quite a trip. I must admit a certain
fascination with ectasy. I have reached "special states" during
meditation which I can't repeat. But it all goes away much like the
gall bladder attack last night.
Anselm is a good "hit", then Aquinas, then Calvin, then in more recent
Wikipedia sites Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:14-15 - "For the love of
Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died
for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who
live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their
sake died and was raised."
The more I study the bible, the less I support I find for the dogma
which passes for Christianity. My current theory is that it is all
motivated by authority in service to power.
