Forgive my theological blunder! :thud:
No problem at all. I think that your thoughts are very insightful and recognize the awesome impact of the cross/resurrection event in Christianity. Your view only needs slight modification to be orthodox - ifthat is your intent.
I've actually seen "cosmic Christ" in both popular and scholarly work.
You're right - the cross/resurrection changeseverything - but the continuance of our history/world/cosmos with the time of Christ is important. Paul thought that we had one foot in this world and the other in the next - we have citizenship in the new cosmos through Christ - like an engagement to marry, but the consummation has not taken place, at least not from the point of view of the NT.
