Why Della Reese Really Shouldn't Preach - Exhibit 1

Sunday Sermon 8/3/08 - Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus the Christ, Christ Jesus (part 2) « The UP Church Blog:

"Why did Jesus come?

He came to show us the attaining the Christ consciousness is possible for all of us. He came to awaken us to the possibilities of our own nature. He came that we might have life and that more abundantly through the piece of God in us already. He gave us the attitude of being. Instead of ‘thou shalt not’ he said, ‘blessed are they that.

When it is written that Jesus went up into the mountains, it means that he went to a higher level of thinking, a higher level of attitude, a higher level of consciousness. He had to go to the Christ inside of him to be buoyant over the water. You have to do the same. Before you do whatever you have to do, speak to God first. You can’t have a better partner."
