A New Reformation: Creation Spirituality and the Transformation of Christianity
Matthew Fox
Fox here presents his 95 theses or articles of faith for a Christianity for the third millennium

1 "The cosmos is God's holy temple and our holy home."

2 "Jesus, not unlike many spiritual teachers, taught us that we are sons and daughters of God and are to act accordingly by becoming instruments of divine compassion."

3 "Chaos is a friend and a teacher and an integral part or prelude to new birth. Therefore, it is not to be feared or compulsively controlled."

4 "Biophilia, or love of life, is everyone's daily task."

5 "Theism (the idea that God is 'out there' or above and beyond the universe) is false. All things are in God and God is in all things."

6 "Everyone is born a mystic and a lover who experiences the unity of things, and all are called to keep alive this mystic or lover of life."

7 "The human psyche is made for the cosmos and will not be satisfied until the two are reunited and awe, the beginning of wisdom, results from the reunion."

8 "God speaks today, as in the past, through all religions and all cultures and all faith traditions, none of which is perfect and an exclusive avenue to truth, but all of which can learn from each other."

9 "Interconnectivity is not only a law of physics and of nature, but also forms the basis of community and compassion."

10 "The proper objects of the human heart are truth and justice (Thomas Aquinas), and all people have a right to these through healthy education and healthy government."

11 "A wise test of right action is this: What is the effect of this action on people seven generations from today?"

12 "God is only one name for the Divine One; there are an infinite number of names for God and the Godhead, and still God 'has no name and will never be given a name' (Meister Eckhart)."

13 "God is both Mother and Father."

14 "All that is is holy and all that is is related, for all being in our universe began as one being just before the fireball erupted."

15 "Economic justice requires the work of creativity to birth a system of economics that is global, respectful of the health and wealth of the earth systems, and that works for all."

16 "God is always new, always young, and always 'in the beginning'."
