Richard Rohr's Daily Meditations

Seven Underlying Themes of Richard Rohr's Teachings

Fourth Theme: Everything belongs and no one needs to be scapegoated or excluded. Evil and illusion only need to be named and exposed truthfully, and they die in exposure to the light (Ecumenism).

The Cosmic Christ

Meditation 27 of 52

In Paul’s letter to the Colossians we have the premier texts of the evolving concepts of the Cosmic Christ: “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation” (Colossians 1:15). Did you get that? The firstborn of all creation! So what happened in him, and what it means to be born again, is to be born into this new experience. He was the firstborn and we are the second-born. “For in him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth” (Colossians 1:16). Here we have the Cosmic Christ. He is not just saving “human beings.” But all of Creation is included—Earth, birds, and animals, too. Now we have a truly Cosmic Christ. Now we have a notion of salvation that includes everybody and everything that exists on this planet. Finally history coheres and “in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17).
