"Religion and science are of man. Christ is of the Father. Follow Christ not religion, not science. Then you will see God."

"It isn't a secret that Joseph Campbell was a key leader of the New Age Movement. His 1988 PBS' "The Power of Myth" documentary exposed Joseph Campbell's true colors.
In that documentary, Joseph goes about to criticize the major tenets of orthodox Christianity. He mocked the bodily resurrection as a clown act in a blasphemous way, yet he's the one that deifies myths. He believes in a pantheistic, subjective view of God and religious experience. He believes that God is within humans in a transcendent type of way without ego.
Joseph Campbell doesn't believe that ethical monotheism existed in primitive culture when scholars like social anthropologist Edward Evans-Pritchard and Charles Joseph Adams proved that ethical monotheism is found in ancient cultures indeed. The late Joseph Campbell maintained that civilizations are not based on science, but on myth. "
So, Joseph Campbell's ideologies are a part of the same old New Age dogma. His ideas aren't new. There is nothing new under the sun. The Zeitgeist movement is similar to the movement of Joseph Campbell. Each deny the mainstream view of Jesus Christ and each teach New Age like ideologies."
I dont need a guide, i need proof, is that so much to ask from a benevolent deity that wants my worship? How can one here Jesus in any kind of tangable way and not be considered at the least schizophrenic?
