Book Chameleon (pgs 46 & 48 commentary at the bottom of the page.)

- C.F. Russell - 1940

~~~

Christ came for all & is not & cannot be the exclusive property of any nation, sect or personal body.  No one can obtain a monopoly over the things which really count.  Christianity is so differnt from "racial" religions that it is almost a misnomer to call it a "religion" at all.  It is the "spiritual-sun" which shines alike for all who face it! Just as the Christ-event is unique in the history of the world, incomparable, consequently hard to understand, so this is a distinctive feature of Christianity that it cannot be forced upon anyone.  Nor can it be purchased except by application of the first Rule of Art-- vis., "to buy the Egg without haggling"! It is not the money that buys such an Egg, but the "without haggling"!

The substance of Christianity is conferred freely only upon those who, of their own free will, ask for it & open their hearts to it.  It is incompatible with slavery of any kind.  Its essence is Freedom & Love, which is impossible without Freedom.  Nothing can penetrate the Ego unless the Ego opens itself to it freely.  Christianity is preeminently the "religion" which leaves the will free.  It is indeed essentially the substance of the highest morality itself.  It does not coerce, it does not persuade, it has no ulterior purpose; it is.  It is the substance of what is truly human.  It is the "Light of the World"!
