John Butler is the author of Wonders of Spiritual Unfoldment and Mystic Approaches.
I posted these two videos because I was struck by the honesty and authenticity of Mr Butler. Clearly this is a man who has been seeking God all of his life. Even though he connects with Orthodoxy in the latter part of his life, his approach to the mystical life is not as Trinitarian and sacramental as I believe a fully Christian understanding should be … but he speaks (at least, so it appears to me) from a genuine experience of God.
In listening to Butler’s testimony, this verse from Galatians repeatedly came to mind: ” I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me. And the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
