The Christ principle

See also

In the teachings of Science of Mind and Spirit and many New Thought/Old Wisdom philosophies and teachings; The Christ and a Christ is not a person, but a Principle, a Universal Presence, the Universal Image of God that is present in all Creation. This is the concept of the Cosmic Christ, which is present within every person. Each human individual partakes of the Christ nature to the degree that he or she recognizes the Cosmic Christ within and lives out of that revelation. Jesus of Nazareth was a human individual who revealed the Christ Nature to the highest degree ever known. This is Core Concept 10 of 10 in the Science of Mind and Spirit/Religious Science.

The man we call Jesus was a messenger and teacher of the power of this Christ consciousness. “I am the way and the truth and the life.” He is one of the many Greats who have helped us embrace the power of unconditional love. He brought this love to the biblical practices of the law and set us free. He says, "he came that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." And “no one comes to the Father except through me.” Through Jesus, who embraced the Christ awareness more than any other being, we can understand the nature of the divine and where unconditional love lives. Here is the heart’s desire to love and be loved. No magic, no hocus pocus, dogma nor doctrine; just love.

New International Version (NIV) John 4:16, New International Version (NIV) 10:10
