The eternal I AM
"You asked how Christ's statement that 'He and He only is the Way' can be reconciled with my approach. It depends on how you understand Christ. If you understand Christ the way that he and the enlightened saints down through the ages understood him, then there's no problem. The Christ is eternal, outside space and time. He antedated the historical Jesus--in fact, antedated time and history: 'Before Abraham was, I AM.' The eternal I AM is perpetually given birth in the ground of being, and we may participate in that birth."
