Kurginyan explains the difference between Christianity and other world religions

22.04.2023, Moscow.

The goal of Christianity is not just the salvation of the soul, but the theosis of man and his elevation to a godlike stature, philosopher, political scientist, and leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergei Kurginyan stated on April 6 on the air of the Conversation with a Sage program on Radio Zvezda.

The philosopher reflects on the humanism of Christianity, in which a single God became incarnate, thereby raising man to an incredible height. The goal of Christianity, unlike other world religions, is not simply to save the soul and enter the Kingdom of God. The goal of Christianity is the theosis of man, raising him to a godlike stature, when man himself becomes god with a lower-case “g”, Kurginyan pointed out.

“Jesus has a certain other hypostasis according to his essence, and man can get it according to his energy, he can be deified when he is constantly burned by this higher energy, with which he communicates,” explained the analyst.

Kurginyan stressed that it is this striving for the apotheosis of man that most clearly underlines the humanistic basis of Christianity, “What goals! What a scale of faith in man!”

This “ecstasy of faith in man,” in his elevation, in approaching God, has created Christian culture, Essence of Time’s leader stressed.
