THE HUMAN IMAGINATION
Tonight’s subject I will call it “The Human Imagination.” I could call it, maybe you will, by many other titles. The human Imagination is the true vine of eternity, the eternal body of God. So let us turn to the works of Paul and see what light he throws on it. You will see that there is nothing impossible to your wonderful human Imagination, but man will not accept it. He turns out to other gods, gods that do not exist. In the writings of Paul no trace can be found of an historical Christ as we today use the term. And yet that is all that Paul preached. He only preached Christ crucified, and yet there’s not the slightest trace of an historical Christ in the letters of Paul.
He said, “From now on we regard no one from the human point of view; even though we once regarded Christ from the human point of view, we regard him thus no longer” (2Cor. 5:16). Now let us see what he has to say about Christ. He said, “Since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it please God through the folly that we preach to save those who believe” (1Cor.1:21). Well, what did he preach? He preached “Christ crucified, a stumbling block to the Jews and folly to the Greeks. Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God” (1Cor.1:23; 1:24).
That’s what Christ meant to him: the power of God and the wisdom of God. As you read his letters you can come to only one conclusion…that he is speaking of your own wonderful human Imagination…that’s Christ. He said, “The wisdom of man is foolishness in the eyes of God. The foolishness of God is wiser than men and the weakness of God is stronger than men” (1Cor.1:25).
He looked upon the crucified Christ as God keyed low, the very lowest point. To him he was impotency of the creative power; and yet that impotency that appeared dead was to him more creative and more wise than the power of man and the wisdom of man. So when he speaks of “bearing on his body the death of Christ that he may also manifest the life of Christ in his body,” the word translated death is defined in scripture as “impotency.” It’s keyed so low it appears to be dead; and yet, in spite of the appearance of death, it is wiser than the wisdom of man and stronger, the seeming weakness, than the strength of men.
You can try it and put him to the test. He said, “Come test yourselves and see. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless of course you fail to meet the test” (2Cor.13:5). Well, if he’s my human Imagination and all things were made by him and without him there’s nothing made that is made, I certainly can test him if he’s my human Imagination. You see, he has the wisdom to devise the means. I don’t have to consciously devise the means. He has the power to execute the imaginal assumption. So I dare to assume that I am what reason denies, what my senses deny, knowing that the being that is assuming it is Christ Jesus, and it has this wisdom, though weak.
For what is weaker than a mere assumption that a thing is so, though reason tells me that it is not so? When my senses deny it and every person around me ___(??) wise persons forbidding it if I confided what I had done? But here I am behind the eight-ball and I dare to assume that I am now what everything denies that I am, does that assumption have the power and wisdom to execute itself? I am told it has if I will accept it. But I’m also told that man will not accept it…very few will.
