Anamnēsis Is there such a thing as an esoteric Christianity, or did Christ overcome and abolish all such distinctions? It seems to me the answer to your question is … yes! While it is true that in Christ “the middle wall of partition” has been “broken down” (Ephesians 2:14), St Paul continues to “speak wisdom only among them that are perfect” (1 Corinthians 2:6). Even though “there is neither Jew nor Greek … neither bond nor free … neither male nor female” (Galatians 3:28), the deacon still cries out, “The doors! Much could be said about the eso-exoteric, or exo-esoteric, nature of Christianity, but a good place to begin is with the Sermon on the Mount, and a good way to begin this beginning is to compare the opening verse of the Sermon with the penultimate verse: that is, Matthew 5:1 and Matthew 7:28. Matthew 5:1: “And seeing the multitudes, He went up into a mountain: and when He was set, His disciples came unto him.” The Sermon, it seems, was delivered not to the many but to a chosen few.

Commandments of Christ The Commandments of Christ The following is a list of commands which form the basis of our life in Christ. Most were spoken directly by Christ; many were added for clarity by the writers of the epistles. Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you (Matt. 5:44). Resist not evil: if a man smite thee on one cheek, turn to him the other also (Matt. 5:30-40). Avenge not yourselves: rather give place unto wrath: and suffer yourselves to be defrauded (Rom. 12:18, 19).

Einstein on Free Will After the First World War Einstein made contributions to the development of quantum theory, including Bose-Einstein statistics and the basics of stimulated emission of radiation from atoms (which was later used to develop lasers). He gave the nod of approval that led to the rapid acceptance of Louis de Broglie’s ideas about matter waves but he never came to terms with the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics.[1] The Copenhagen has become the more popular and standard interpretation.[2] According to the Heisenberg Principle, the moment at which a measurement takes place is the moment at which the randomness lying at the heart of quantum reality expresses itself.[3] Up to that point, everything is fine. Amplitudes change in a completely predictable, and more importantly, calculable way. The observer changes the state of what is being observed. This was something Einstein could not live with. [9] Predictability may be equivalent to randomness, not a lack of causality.

» Introducing Anamnēsis Anamnēsis (an · am′· nē · sis) n. [Gr. ἀνάμνησις remembering < ἀνά up, again + μιμνήσκειν to call to mind, attend] a recollective ascent or ascensional recollection Welcome to Anamnēsis, the weblog of Dr James S. Cutsinger, a professor of theology and religious thought at the University of South Carolina. Further information concerning him and his work can be found on his website, www.cutsinger.net. As a teacher and author, Professor Cutsinger regularly finds himself on the receiving end of questions and challenges—outwardly diverse, to be sure, but inwardly connected in one way or another to God and the spiritual life. The issues he is called upon to address are sometimes theoretical and sometimes practical. It has seemed to Professor Cutsinger for some time that his responses to a select few of these queries, those having a more general import and thus of potential interest to a wider audience, might be usefully shared in a public forum. Why Anamnēsis?
