LCC's place in Christian Movement
Feb 17, 2008 07:03 PM
I just thought I'd like to add a few comments that perhaps try and
look at the Liberal Catholic Church as a part of the Christian
movement rather than the theosophical movement.
I have come to rethink over this issue and perhaps the below points
are worth considering.
Christianity is a vastly diverse tradition.
In my opinion the LCC fills a much needed niece today and probably
more so when the LCC came into being, as with all groups they have
their own problems and internal issues that need to be worked
through over time; it does however also offer people who feel a
leaning towards mystical Christianity a place to explore it, in a by
on large non dogmatic fashion.
While following a fairly set ritual practice it does not demand
anybody to believe anything and permits any body to partake of Holy
Communion at its altars.
It teaches Christianity as one path but not the only one, it
certainly does not teach that a person who is not a Christian will
not find "Salvation" but rather teaches that the Sacraments are
tools that can help rather than being essentials and that there are
many roads up the mountainside.
CWL and Wedgwood took out all reference to hell fire and damnation
in the liturgy.
If we get too focused in picking things to pieces sometimes we can
miss the positive aspects that there may be to find in something.
The LCC is one of the few mystical churches in the world today
surely this has a place and if people find this kind of mystical
practice helpful who are we to sit in judgement, every person is on
their own spiritual journey and each person who participates in any
kind of ritual / spiritual practice has their own motives and way of
