Not EVERY religion tells you that it requires some great amount of faith in some supreme thing...
to "get" it. Have you heard of Buddhism, Thelema, or any number of other religions that don't do that? It is clear the Course on Miracles writer is pretty arrogant really, this shouldn't be a reflection of every religious movement.
I'd leave "Thelema" alone, were I you-but that's neither here nor there. Buddhism. . .you can either believe in a supreme being, or you can be a pantheist, and believe in many gods and/or goddesses. . . or you can be atheist and still be a Buddhist.
Yes. I incorporate many of the Buddha's teachings into my own ministry. New Thought is another spiritual path that will not exclude anyone for not accepting a Supreme Being.
Even I, as a minister, do not accept an outside-type Supreme Being.
Thanks for your comments and question.
We're moving into a new age where you just can't put god in that type of box. God is becoming more personal and people just can't accept the old dogma about some beardy guy in the clouds looking to punish us.
