Participants of our classes and readers of our book, The Truth, are individuals who embrace equality, who are inspired by love, and who desire Spiritual Unity.
This class is the fourth in a series of seminars on the five primary religions: Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam. Our facilitator, Reverend Lowell Smith is a student of Christian theology through the ages and a gifted intuitive recognized by Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment. He also is an ordained minister and teaches classes in the Search for God series. He is a frequent guest lecturer at Unity Churches in Maryland and Virginia, and he also meets clients on an individual basis. Lowell’s website: www.ReflectionsInLight.org
Students will learn:
·The latest historical research on the life of Jesus and his avowed mission;
·How the Jews split and the early Christians fractured after Jesus died;
·How James and Paul vied for control of the Jesus movement;
·How orthodox Christianity was formed and the impact of the Catholic Church;
·A contemporary interpretation of what Jesus meant when he said, “I am the Way.”
In keeping with the unification goals of The Oracle Institute, our facilitator will identify the lessons of Christianity which continue to enhance our view of God and those which may be updated to further serve humanity. We also will explore how Christianity may be incorporated into a pluralistic approach for understanding each other and communing with the Supreme Being.
The Truth (2006) presents a history of the 5 primary religions and their prophets, and challenges readers to decide whether these now ancient belief systems are more focused on promoting Spiritual Unity or perpetuating religious separation.
The Love (due 2008) contains essays, short stories, and poetry on various topics of love, to remind us of what we are to learn while our souls appear locked on the Earth Plane.
The Light (due 2011) explores the exalted yet accessible nature of the Supreme Being in a manner that is consistent with a sophisticated 21st Century human mind and experience.
