Escaping Christianity: Finding Christ Paperback – by Mrs. Barbara K Symons (Author)

Escaping Christianity is the fascinating account of leaving behind fundamentalism and finding and embracing the mystical side of the Bible.

Description

If I can escape, anyone can. By “escape,” I mean to exit the trappings that define fundamentalist Christianity. This book will take the reader on my Spiritual journey out of religion and into Christ Consciousness, forsaking the history for the mystery.

Escaping Christianity is a non-fiction account of my journey out of Christian fundamentalism thought and into a much broader mystical understanding of scripture. I left dogmatic religion rather suddenly in late 1999. It began when I started to view scripture as metaphor; the whole Bible opened up, giving me a mystical view of the historical events found within the print. I was a speaker, teacher, writer and exorcist within the Charismatic movement and my fundamentalism was no longer making sense to me. I began to question many of the tenants of the faith that I had been raised with. Heaven, Hell, the Devil, Christ, even the word “saved” began to take on new meaning. I began seeing Bible events as internal and mystical, thereby providing me with a roadmap of sorts to our personal and collective evolution in consciousness. Along with this different view came rejection from my church brothers and sisters. However, something was blooming within my consciousness and there was no turning back. I was seeking and I was finding. This burgeoning awareness could not be constrained in a limited fundamentalist environment. The root was breaking the pot.
