    Eckhart Tolle versus Scripture / Christianity / Church on Jesus Christ (Your Response)

    Biggest Question Eckhart Tolle Inquirers and Followers need to answer...

    Jesus Christ once asked the question: Who do you say that I am?

    Eckhart Tolle (Inquirers/Followers), Who do YOU say that Jesus is?

    Is Jesus simply a "way-shower" or is he the one and only Savior (i.e. substitutionary sacrifice)?
    Is Jesus simply a "revealer" or is he a Redeemer?
    Is Jesus simply an "enlightened master"(teacher) or is he the Son of God?

    As you consider your answer, give thought to the following...

    Jesus was not a mere enlightened Master. The New Agers' rendition of Jesus as an "enlightened Master" in a class with Buddha, Zoroaster, and others is a radical distortion of the Jesus found in Scripture (which is to say, the Jesus of historical record rather than the Jesus of the mystical Akashic Records). The Jesus found in Scripture clearly believed and taught that He alone among men is God (John 8:58; 10:30; 14:9-10). Douglas Groothuis comments: "If Jesus thought he was uniquely God incarnate but he wasn't, he was far less than 'an enlightened master' -- he didn't even know who he was! If he knew he was not uniquely God incarnate, but said he was, he was a flaming fraud, and in no sense was he an 'enlightened master.' Worse yet, he would have been a deceiver, leading a multitude astray."

    People just don't understand that this is the same trick - new tactic - that Satan used in the Garden of Eden. He promised Eve enlightenment. "You will be as gods," he said in Genesis 3:5, and what happened? Adam and Eve were kicked out of the garden and cursed with death. See my comments at http://messianicteacher.blogspot.com/.

    1) Way-shower. God showing humanity the way.
    2) Revealer. The redemptive/substitutionary atonement angle was probably grafted onto the life of Jesus long after his death by followers who couldn't quite get away from the temple's atonement system. After all, which is easier? Living a decent life and caring for people? Or transfering all of your shortcomings to a pigeon, goat, person, or some other "sacrifice"?
    3) Enlightened Rabbi and Son of God. Just like you're a Son (or daughter) of God.

    Isaiah - 700 B.C. "Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for sin, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities." (Isaiah 53:10-11)

    I believe that Jesus is:

    -both a "way-shower" and the 1 and only Saviour... for Jesus says "I am the way the truth and the life, for no one comes to the Father but through me."

    -both a revealer and a Redeemer

    -both a teacher (he is called teacher/master throughout the new testament) and the Son of God (also called throughout the new testament)
