Is man a channel?
The Christian Science Monitor
It's a subject referred to quite often these days: at parties, on talk shows, and in books that head the best-seller lists. It conjures up images of the exotic and the occult, lost continents and past lives. Its new name is "channeling," but it's really an ancient concept, a belief that personalities from a so-called spirit world can speak through living people.
Is man a channel for spirits? We might first ask some more fundamental questions. Is God Spirit? Is there more than one God?
Throughout the Bible and on through the Christian traditions of the last two thousand years, these words of Moses resound: "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord . . . Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you." Deut. 6:4, 14. One power that is Spirit, undivided good, intelligence, Life, Love itself—certainly this is the God of primitive Christianity.
