Exoteric And Esoteric Christianity
EXOTERIC CHRISTIANITY = Outside / Visable Christ
ESOTERIC CHRISTIANITY = Inside / Invisable Christ
OUTER TEACHING AND INNER TEACHING
When people spoke in a deeper sense of a knowledge of man and of man's conception of the world, they always made a distinction between an exoteric teaching, that gives a more exterior knowledge of things, and an esoteric teaching.
An exoteric contemplation of Christianity, accessible to all the world, is contained in the Gospels. Side by side with this exoteric contemplation, there has always been an esoteric Christianity for those who were willing - as I have said before - to prepare their hearts and minds in an adequate way for the reception of an esoteric Christianity.
