I know that the doctrine of a cosmic Cllrist is asserted in the Scriptures. In the Epistle to the Colossians2 it is written very explicitly: "By him were all things created that are in heaven and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones or dominions, or principalities or powers; all things were created by him and for him." I do not, however, feel inclined to retract what I have said.
