Secret Doctrines of Jesus Reviews
Picked this up at a second hand book shop and was interested given that it was published by the Supreme Grand Lodge of AMORC and is part of the Rosicrucian Library. What was the seal on my purchase was that the original bookmark was still inside. I have only just finished the book and I am still stewing over some of the theories (?) that raised regarding what and who Jesus taught. What I did find interesting was that part of Jesus's moral code (according to the book) is that he did not teach or imply or even beleive that physical body of man was anything more than a mortal frame and unimportant to anything - especially the resurrection. Also that the soul of man if its origin and source was in the consciousness and mind of God, then the soul was not only immortal but beyond contamination, beyond sinfulness and thus beyond condemnation. This would mean that Jesus did not suffer on the cross the save the soul of man because there was no need. What Jesus was teaching people about was the inner self, the character and the personality within body that committed sins.It is an interesting read and I will probably add more to the review once I have gone back and considered more of what is being implied. After a bit of thinking there was one thing that did bother me about the bookwhich was that there was a lot of 'facts' told which were not supported by any evidence. There were quite afew of these 'facts' thrown around which either meant Lewis had at his fingertips sources not known to the entire academic world or they were made up.
written by an Imperator of the Rosicrucian Order & published by the Supreme Grand Lodge of the Ancient & Mystical Order Rosæ Crucis, itself. can't wait to get to this baby.
Lots of exposition without any content. Dramatic and incendiary concepts without any source or means to be verified. Overall unimpressive.
another masterpiece from the trash bin of H Spencer Lewis
