ET Item 6: To Evolutionize Theology, not Revolutionize

Better to evolutionize faith and reason than to revolutionize. Evolution preserves prior grounding in faith and reason, revolution may destroy prior grounding. Non-violence and gradual growth into change are associated with evolution; revolution implies the failure of evolution and forced change.

What results from failed evolution is maladjustment, for example, when consciousness is fixated in cultural dogma that has lost its credibility. The correction of failed evolution and cultural maladjustment causes upheavals and violent revolution. Eucharistic Altruism, as exemplified by Jesus, the Cosmic Christ, is the spiritual insight that renews the symbiotic purpose of every generation.
