Item description for Mysteries Of John by Charles Fillmore...
OF BY CHARLES FILLMORE UNITY SCJHOOI. OF CMRISTIANITY KANSAS CIXY 6, MO. 1946 METAPHYSICAL BIBLE studeni, Tecpgnhe in the Gospel of John a certain spiritual quality that is not found in the other Gospels. Al though this is not true of all Bible readers, it may be said that those who look for the mystical find it in the language of this book. The book is distinctive in this respect and is so successful in setting forth meta physical truths that little interpretation is necessary. Only in a few instances does the original writing conceal the deep truths that the student seeks to discern. Written language is at best a reflection of inner ideas, and even though a teacher couples ideas and words as adroitly as Jesus does, elucidation is sometimes difficult. Nevertheless ideas are catching, and this may be the best reason for publishing another book about this spirit-arousing Fourth Gospel. We are all heavily charged with ideas, and when these ideas are re leased they spring forth and pass from mind to mind, being recorded as they fly, and when they are expressed the whole race is lifted up i the idea is charged with the uplifting Spirit. Jesus was Gods idea of man made manifest in the flesh so He was warranted in making that dynamic assertion, I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto myself. Nowhere in all literature has this truth of the unity o God, man, and creation been so fear lessly expressed and affirmed by man as in the Book r T t r - i v i o n jt of John. JL. W Ji f j J-. C Here the cjuestion arises as to Gods responsibility 1b aU at aj5jwr fl iW h both good and evil, whlcli seems to coniound our logic and understand ing. We aret fiit juman consciousness the fruitof a tree that stemnied from the soil of Being. The laws instituted in the aeons and ages of the past still pre vail in the present. Interpreting Being from a per sonal standpoint, we have ignored the principles and laws at the very foundation of all creation and sub stituted a personal God, and many contradictions have followed. Now through the unfoldment of the spiritual man implanted in us in the beginning we are discerning the unchangeable laws of the good and the absolute necessity of conforming to them. So we see that Jesus taught plainly that God functions in and through man and nature instead of being a person somewhere in the skies also that we demonstrate God by making His Spirit manifest in our life. He that hath seen me hath seen the Father. Socrates was asked, What is a good man He replied, A man who does good. Again he was asked, What is good What the good man does, he replied. No extended definition of good is necessary to those who follow Jesus even converted savages un derstand good and do it. The universal desire among awakened Christians to love God and man is part of the law constantly operating through man when he finds his right relation to God. The status of evil is that of a parasite. It has no permanent life of itself its whole existence depends on the life it borrows from its parent, and when its connection with the parent is severed nothing re mains. Apparent evil is the result of ignorance, and when the truth is presented the error disappears. Jesus called it a liar and the father of lies. Men personalize good and evil in a multiplicity of gods and devils, but Truth students follow Jesus in recognizing the supreme Spirit in man as the one God and Father ofall.

More About Charles Fillmore
Charles Sherlock Fillmore (1854 -1948), born in St. Cloud, Minnesota, founded Unity, a church within the New Thought movement, with his wife, Myrtle Page Fillmore, in 1889. He became known as an American mystic for his contributions to metaphysical interpretations of Biblical scripture. An ice skating accident when he was ten broke Fillmore's hip and left him with life-long disabilities. He met his future wife, Mary Caroline Page, known as Myrtle, in Denison, Texas in the mid-1870s. After losing his job there, he moved to Gunnison, Colorado where he worked at mining and real estate. He married Myrtle in Clinton, Missouri on March 29, 1881 and the newlyweds moved to Pueblo, Colorado, where Charles established a real estate business with the brother-in-law of Nona Lovell Brooks, who was later to found the Church of Divine Science. After the births of their first two sons, Lowell Page and Waldo Rickert Fillmore, the family moved to Kansas City, Missouri. Two years later, in 1886, Charles and Myrtle attended New Thought classes held by Dr. E. B. Weeks. Myrtle subsequently recovered from chronic tuberculosis and attributed her recovery to her use of prayer and other methods learned in Weeks's classes. Subsequently Charles began to heal from his childhood accident, a development which he too attributed to following this philosophy. Charles Fillmore became a devoted student of philosophy and religion. In 1889, Charles left his business to focus entirely on a prayer group that would later be called 'Silent Unity'. It was named this because of a legal conflict with Mary Baker Eddy over the use of the title Christian Science. That same year he began publication of a new periodical, 'Modern Thought', notable among other things as the first publication to accept for publication the writings of the then 27-year-old New Thought pioneer William Walker Atkinson. Although Charles had no intention of making Unity into a denomination, his students wanted a more organized group. He and his wife were among the first ordained Unity ministers in 1906. Charles and Myrtle Fillmore operated the Unity organization from a campus near downtown Kansas City.
Charles Fillmore was born in 1854 and died in 1948.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mysteries Of John?
Deep insights from one of the greatest mystics Feb 11, 2002
If you are not satisfied with superficial and shallow interpretations of the Scripture that we hear a lot in our days, this book is certainly for you. It explains the book of John from a metaphysical point of view. The idea is that the Bible is a deeply symbolic book, which uses people, places and events as symbols of certain stages of our inner development. The Bible was written not about people who died many centuries ago - it is written about us and our experiences in the process of spiritual evolution and an inner unfoldment.
You will find this book helpful in many ways, especially if you are looking not only for an intellectual understanding, but its practical application. It will lead you to the further realization of your spiritual identity, with the fullness of power of glory and power that follows. And this will be a true "new birth"!
To all what I said I need to add that I translated this book into the Russian language and published it on the web.
