#CochetBrunschvicg 3 : les deux aspects de l'immanence

Venant à la suite de :


Où nous avons vu que la conversion de la conscience (conversion véritable, et non pas conversion à une religion particulière qui n’est que l’expression d’un ressentiment contre ce que l’on croit etre les “ennemis” de cette religion, exemple j’ai toujours pu vérifier que les conversions d’européens à l’islam s’originent toujours d’un ressentiment contre les femmes européennes, jugées “trop libres” ou contre les juifs, ou bien souvent contre la religion chrétienne où l’on est né, jugée responsable d’avoir brimé nos inclinations particulières, sexuelles notamment, bref en résumé : la conversion religieuse est une fausse conversion, qui n’a rien de spirituel) , où nous avons vu donc que la conversion véritable implique un retournement (metanoia) , un changement de signe, et pour reprendre les termes utilisés par Mme Cochet : 2,101 more words
