Four Types or Stages of Resurrection

It seems to me that there are at least four types of resurrection, or at least four stages of the process of being resurrected, or events that could be considered resurrection.

Christians are Made Christs by Anointing

The ritual practice of anointing makes the person that is anointed an "Anointed One," which is what the word Christ literally means, and by derivation is what being a Christian means. Cyril of Jerusalem in the fourth century noted of those who had been baptized and anointed, "You have been made Christs, by receiving the anti-type [symbol] of the Holy Spirit [the oil]" (Catecheses 21.1). Receiving the chrism they are ritualistically made Christs, being clothed in that Name and Identity, taking it upon themselves in actual fact as their own Eternal Identity, their True Name/Self.

Excerpts from Symeon’s Discourse on the “Mystical Resurrection of Christ”

The following are excerpts from a discourse given by the Byzantine Christian monk and poet, Symeon the New Theologian (949-1022 AD), to the monks of the Monastery of St. Mamas.

The Godhead in the Light of Evolution

How should we regard the Godhead, or the Trinity as many Christians call it, taking into consideration biological evolution, particularly human evolution, and other modern science?

Is God a Person?

The only God that we can find and perceive and know directly as such, I believe, is the one that can be found in the very center and heart of our own Self and Being and Consciousness. That is where God is. That is where God lives. That is God, in humanity.

What is the Resurrection?

I don't think there is any evidence in nature that bodily resurrection can happen. I think this is a misunderstanding of the resurrection.

I AM is the Way, the Truth, and the Life

Much has been written, and there has been much contention throughout history, about this scripture and others like it that seem to justify the exclusive truth claims and saving power of Christianity. Other religions have made similar claims for their own paths, but for this post I'll focus on Christianity. I believe these claims rely on an interpretation of scripture that is partially correct, but unfortunately misses a greater and far more glorious meaning.
