If we accept the Trinity as a starting point for rebuilding the Christian Church, the next fundamental building block would be a discussion on the notion of the Cosmic Christ.
Science supports religious truth
Science has done much to awaken us to the powerful forces at play in our universe. The new discoveries support what religion has already intuited. There exists an interdependence in all aspects of creation. We are slowly understanding the loss of one species affects the viability of another. Should we destroy the bee population for example human life will be endangered. And we are destroying a frightening numbers of species at a frenetic pace without comprehending the consequences.
Everything is connected. This maxim becomes real when we embrace a new interpretation of scripture and what the incarnation of God might mean. Jesus was not the first time God manifested herself in matter. Indeed it all began with the Big Bang. The overflowing love-abundance of the divine dance known as Trinity chose to reveal itself in our universe, in our solar system, in our planet in all its diversity.
“In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God… Through him all things came into being.” John 1: 1-3
The Cosmic Christ
Christ was before creation of our universe. Creation came through Christ.
God is approachable in every thing
Anyone who has taken a walk in the woods or stood beside a wild lake listening to the life surrounding it meets God. She is present in every flower, in every leaf, in every smile and in every sadness.
We are the only form of Creation who has trouble acknowledging and praising the Creator.
Science has discovered a recurring pattern within and around matter. The web-like form binds galaxies together (dark matter), links synapses in the brain and furnishes pathways for nourishment in the forest floor. Everything is connected. Energy. The Cosmic Christ.
The original blessing
The other truly exciting part of al this is the blessing. It all originated in blessing!
“God saw all that he had made and indeed it was very good.” Genesis 1:31
If we would believe in the blessing instead of looking for fault, we would be singing praises like the birds and the trees, even the rocks. Loving one another and creating heaven on earth might be possible.
