I just am trying to say that I like the idea. I perhaps am not aware of the
"fullness of the idea," but I did attent Baptist church services in Chicago
and people could go up to the front of the church and give personal stories
about their lives and how Jesus had made a difference to them. They used to
say they were saved to.

How do you know? I remember reading about the possibility that one of the
masters was actually working through Jesus. That Jesus was a fourth initiate
and that the master who occupies the office within the hierarchy of the
Christ was working through Jesus to carry out the historical activities, but
more importantly to bring about a new religion for humanity. The same
office of the Christ is supposed to be responsible for the founding and
operation of "most" religious activity on earth, past and future.

I don't know where to find the Passover Seder. I thought the Seder was the
food that decorated the table and tells a story of the historical event.
I've taken my books back to the library already.

Thank you for speaking to me personally about these things. I really feel
honored that you shared your story and that you attempted to discourse with me.
