    Read "Existentialism The Good Kind" - Crosswalk the Devotional - February 20 from Crosswalk: The Devotional. Be encouraged and grow your faith with daily and weekly : Crosswalk: The Devotional. 'the message' of mysticism The basis of this study is the English paraphrased text of the New Testament written by Eugene Peterson, called "The Message." Through the use of paraphrase, 'The Message' was 'crafted' to present the doctrines of mysticism to the Christian church in order to seduce it into occultism and the New Age Movement.

    Mysticism is the science of actually experiencing other levels of consciousness. Scriptures, prayers, rituals, devotional songs and special buildings -all outer forms of worship – are non-essential to a mystic. Some of these may be helpful in that they may help create an atmosphere for mystic practice, but that is all. Nevertheless, the first person after St. Paul of whom it can now be decisively stated that he was a practical mystic of the first rank, and in whose writings the central mystic doctrine of union with God is found, is a pagan. That person is Plotinus, the great Neoplatonic philosopher of Alexandria (A.D. c. ). His mysticism owes nothing.
