Page 14 PART ONE – Darkness to Light (cont.) Particle – Concept-Therapy, Forming God Some of us in Amway became involved in Concept-Therapy, a philosophical system founded by Thurman Fleet of San Antonio, Texas. It promised all one could wish in terms of spiritual and temporal wealth and power. Harry Roder, a certified instructor and former evangelical minister from Ontario, came to Winnipeg, holding weekend meetings at John and Betty Fortins'. Though I thought CT's fees were high, I became very motivated and excited about the concepts, and I aspired to be an instructor. They promised that once completing a series of weekend sessions over several years in various cities of North America, one would enter cosmic consciousness, a state of peace, power, and fulfillment, with access to all knowledge. It was about being at one with all creation and the intelligent power of the universe, and being able to harness this power to great advantage. They taught that their sources of learning were science and the Bible, the best of both worlds. One day, at a short break in the meeting, I gazed at a chart on the wall that symbolically depicted the seven phases of the spiritual journey, the seventh being the temple of all knowledge, the state of cosmic consciousness. While others stood by, I asked Harry, out of curiosity, where he was at on the chart. His reaction surprised me. He was silent. Others were interested in his answer, and they waited for him to reply.

It occurred to me that there were some striking similarities between him and me, as well as some differences. SIMILARITIES: 1)    We were both born Roman Catholic. 2)    Though he obviously more so, we were both devout in the Roman Catholic religion. He entered the priesthood while I tested a minor seminary for the priesthood for one year. 3)    We have both come into conflict with the Catholic Church. 4)    We tend to “understand the world through the lens of the Bible.” 5)    We are both dealing with religious/spiritual doctrine. 6)    We have both lived with the expectation and acceptance of suffering for our beliefs. 7)    We both grew up with familial hardships. 8)    We have both been involved in public criticism, coming and going. 9)    We are both focused and intense persons. 10)  We have both agonized unusually much with our consciences. 11)  Many condemned Luther’s “harsh and stinging” tones, and scathing language. Many have criticized me similarly. 12)  We are both convinced that we are dealing with the antiChrist, convinced that the devil must be confronted daily. 13)  We view ourselves as in an apocalyptic struggle. 14)  About half a century before Luther became public with his teachings and doctrine, the Gutenberg press was invented, which facilit...
