CHAPTER 32 COMPASSION Back to the Table of Contents Question: compassion:This whole model seems to me a very selfish way to live. Where’s your heart? Where’s your compassion for the pain and suffering of others?

CHAPTER 31 THE EGO Back to the Table of Contents   EGO:Question: You’ve  been  pretty  hard  on  the  ego  throughout  this  book.  Isn’t  that  a judgment in itself? Answer: Excellent point, and I’m glad for the chance to clarify it. First, let’s make sure we agree on what we mean by the “ego,” since that word has been used a lot and means different things to different people. In  this  book  I  have  used  “ego”  to  mean  the  personality  construct  we  create  while playing the Human Game. It is composed…

money:We talked in Chapter Twenty-Four about “virtual reality”…. If part of your computer-generated “virtual reality” experience was to look at your bank account and see a million dollars in it, I wonder whether you would say, “This must be a mistake. I didn’t earn that money.” Most likely you would realize it was created out of thin air by the designer of your “virtual reality” experience and would not need to figure out how it got there. In fact, you would know how it got there. But according to quantum…

CHAPTER 16 JUDGMENT Back to the Table of Contents judgment:After hours upon hours of spiritual autolysis, I finally wrote something that is true: Judgment is the source of all pain and suffering. This might only be true for me, but I doubt it. If you’re like I, and many other people, you’ve had a personal experience confirming this truth you might not have recognized….

Jesus is a man

Everything about Jesus identifies him as our kinsman-redeemer. John warns Christians: “Many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.” (2 John 7).  This allegation is applicable to Paul in the bible.By his own admission, Paul was a sinner who could not walk righteously before God.  He confesses: “What I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do.” (Romans 7:15).  Therefore, Paul creates a self-serving Christology to excuse his sinfulness.  He says:…
