In an earlier post you said "the teaching of Christ are (sic) regurgitated daily by the Liberty movement". Now you are conceding that arguments for liberty precede Christianity. Perhaps there is something I'm missing, but the only way that I can see that these two viewpoints can be reconciled is if there are arguments that non-Christian liberty-minded people make that cannot exist independently of Christianity. If there are such arguments, can you give an example?
Whatever mistranslation there was produced dogma, not mysticism. Mystics claim direct experience of the divine, uncorrupted by dogma. Mysticism cannot bring anyone under anyone else's authority, because it is in substance the transcendence of dogma. Mysticism is therefore in direct opposition to those who wish to exercise authority over others.
