Who is Arthur Schopenhauer?


Brothers and Sisters !!

DO YOU KNOW WHO ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER IS ?

Arthur was a famous philosopher in the 18th century who wrote many books. Today teachers of Scripture are still quoting this man, one of their favourite quotes "cliches," is the 3 stages of belief. Have a look below at the basic background of Arthur's collective mindset and influences.


Influences[edit] Schopenhauer said he was influenced by the Upanishads, Immanuel Kant and Plato. References to Eastern philosophy and religion appear frequently in his writing. As noted above, he appreciated the teachings of the Buddha and even called himself a Buddhist.[107] He said[108] that his philosophy could not have been conceived before these teachings were available.

Concerning the Upanishads and Vedas, he writes in The World as Will and Representation:

If the reader has also received the benefit of the Vedas, the access to which by means of the Upanishads is in my eyes the greatest privilege which this still young century (1818) may claim before all previous centuries, if then the reader, I say, has received his initiation in primeval Indian wisdom, and received it with an open heart, he will be prepared in the very best way for hearing what I have to tell him. It will not sound to him strange, as to many others, much less disagreeable; for I might, if it did not sound conceited, contend that every one of the detached statements which constitute the Upanishads, may be deduced as a necessary result from the fundamental thoughts which I have to enunciate, though those deductions themselves are by no means to be found there.[109]


This review of a life of study, research and writing of books, delivers to us the understanding that Scripture is not Arthur's greatest influence. Even the fact that he was never obviously filled with the Ruach ha'Qodesh and his fascination with eastern philosophies brought forth many a bizarre cliche,

THE 3 STAGES OF BELIEF IN PARTICULAR WHICH MANY MESSIANIC TEACHERS CLAIM AS ON THE SAME LEVEL, AS ACTUAL SCRIPTURE IN THEIR DELUSION.


The 3 stages of belief are actually quite ridiculous, mainly because they are not actual Scripture but the philosophy of men. These type of cliches should make us very dubious but if we research we can see what is going on. When Arthur mentioned the 3 stages of belief it was originally concerned with music, not scripture. Marvellous how things get construed. If Turah is presented in love it is a continuous marvel to watch, a life changing before your very eyes by the overwhelming power of the Ruach is just a marvellous experience. I don't believe Arthur's 3 stages are true, because i have seen different.
