Merton: Master of Antithenai

August 22, 2013


Section: Weeping Prophet – by L Thiel

 Allow me to bring Klimacus (again) to the stage, just for the launch …
. God is the life of all free beings. He is the salvation of all, of believers and unbelievers, of the just or the unjust, of the pious or the impious, of those freed from the passions or caught up in them, of monks or those living in the world, of the educated or the illiterate, of the healthy or the sick, of the young or the very old. He is like the outpouring of light, the glimpse of the sun, or the changes of the weather, which are the same for everyone without exception. “For God is no respecter of persons (Romans 2.11).
This could have been Merton.
Thomas was … equal to the apostles. His man style was fully and gregariously autopilot. But, Amen, Sister! For he was a child not of Christianity, but of Humanity. In Humanity, there is God, undeniably. Or, we might say, there is Spirit presence: undeniable. Why do I align Thomas with Humanity, and take away his Christianity? Because Christianity wears the cloak of ruler and judge. Man in Christianity objectifies himself as literal ruler and judge. He classifies himself as tenet to the masses, and terminates the Essence of Conscience through ambiguous strain. The Essence of the Spirituality of Christ reigns Supreme in Galatians 5.22, which is deemed fallible in Christian Classical Ethics.  Now, I am not saying that all peoples calling themselves Christian behave as ruler and judge, although, you know what they say: Christians give Christianity a bad name. Okay, so why give Thomas a bad name, or anyone else for that matter? No one seems to want to claim responsibility for the crimes against humanity by way of Christianity. So let’s be Eternally revolutionary and Eternally provocative.
If we look at 1 Corinthians 6.19 and 20, we have: Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.And to add to this: For accountability rests in the return to God Eternal through justification of self, through self, within self, as self is the knowledge from God. For to know self is to know Eternal Awareness, and within this shared Conscience reigns ruler and judge … our Creator. 

Peace and Love
