What is a Christian view of "A Course in Miracles"? From through , she was a professor of medical psychology at Columbia University in New York. She experienced the process as one of a distinct and clear dictation from an inner voice, which earlier had identified itself to her as Jesus. The teachings of the Course—a mixture of the mysticism, Gnosticism , and New Age psycho-babble—run counter to Christian beliefs. The course further teaches that sin is the absence of love and nothing more. It denies that sin is an act against God.

Helen Schucman, a non-religious Jew began working with Dr. William Thetford in It seems Dr. Under the MK-Ultra umbrella there were purported to be over a hundred sub projects from the s well into the s and Thetford purportedly worked on Personality Theory, subproject Schucman was employed at Columbia University with Thetford as a research psychologist for seven years without incident, but then one night on the subway she had a vision.
A beautiful light filled the subway car and upon arriving home, the quiet voice, claiming to be Jesus, spoke to her for the first time.
Soon, she and Thetford, a relationship that had always been strained according to reports, developed a close partnership while transcribing what this voice relayed.
Father Groeschel met Schucman at Columbia University while she was scribing the Course and he was writing his dissertation on the relationship between science and theology, he found her to be witty, engaging and a stimulating conversationalist. It seems Thetford was quite a mystery at the University and none of his colleagues knew, until after he retired, that he had also been working for the CIA during his employment.
Groeschel has since criticized ACIM and the related organizations. Schucman maintained a friendship until her death. I mean, she raised the hair on the back of my neck. It was truly terrible to witness. Colin Ross, a psychiatrist specializing in dissociative disorders, has written a summary about Project Bluebird based on documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
Ross states that many prisoners and mental patients were subjected to unethical mind control experiments by leading psychiatrists and medical schools and that academic psychiatry has never acknowledged the truth of these events. Rather, the mind control experimentation was systematic, organized, and involved many leading psychiatrists and medical schools.
The mind control experiments were interwoven with radiation experiments, and research on chemical and biological weapons. The psychiatrists, psychologists, neurosurgeons, and other contractors conducting the work were imbedded in a broad network of doctors, and much of the research was published in medical journals.
The climate was permissive, supportive, and approving of mind control experimentation. Ross continues to list a disturbing number of experimentations and manipulations done on ill-informed and innocent American citizens, including the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, where illiterate, poor, rural black men with syphilis were recruited as subjects, told they had bad blood and were deliberately not treated.
He states that unethical radiations experiments were performed on about people beginning in the s and ending in the s, including injecting patients with plutonium, without their informed consent. And in Washington and Oregon state prisoners were offered five dollars a month to have their testicles irradiated.
But besides the frightening evil of the physical experimentations done on innocents, Project Bluebird was focused on the mind and how to manipulation and control through the use of drugs and hypnosis. The goal was to create Manchurian Candidates by causing amnesic barriers, by shattering the old personality to birth new and efficient ones and implanting hypnotic codes and triggers so that the person being manipulated would never understand his role.
And according to the documents obtained by Ross, they were actually quite successful. Interestingly enough, this was the world in which Dr. Thetford was involved when his research assistant suddenly began hearing the voice of Jesus in her head and A Course in Miracles was born. A Course in Miracles was published in and Dr.
Schucman left Columbia University in , never claiming financial rewards or celebrity status for the book that has been sold around the globe and translated into 17 different languages.
Schucman often lamented to Father Groeschel that she was afraid that the book would gain a cult following and it seems she was correct. Through our practical application of lessons in the art of forgiveness and in the psychology of self-responsibility, we are awakened to the memory of our Divine Inheritance.
Schucman felt at the end of her life had anything to do with the dawning realization that she may have been brutally manipulated? If intention is everything, what was the intent of this book? To relieve suffering or to instill it? To point us in the right direction or trap us in a web of deceit? Victoria Hardy, American Chronicle, Dec
A Course in Miracles: The Lives of Helen Schucman and William Thetford
What is not widely known about this "course" is that it was received by demonic revelation by a Jewish atheist psychologist named Helen Schucman in In this "cutsy" course, Satan attempts to hide his existence, while at the same time "revealing" to the gullible Ms Schucman, an entire list of things that contradict Holy Scripture - which only the father of lies could concoct. In October , a Jewish atheist psychologist named Helen Schucman, an associate professor of medical psychology at Columbia University in New York, claimed she began receiving channeled messages from an unknown entity in an audible voice. She claims that from an inner Voice dictated to her the three books which comprise A Course in Miracles. This voice, claimed Schuchman, was the voice of Jesus. Schuchman recalled, "The voice made no sound, but seemed to be giving me a kind of rapid inner diction which I took down in a shorthand notebook".
