A German court ruled in 2014 that Jesus Christ did not, in fact, write “A Course In Miracles” despite the fact the the jewish author Helen Schucman claimed that He did, and despite the fact that she legally transferred ownership of the copyright to the jewish-controlled and operated Foundation for Inner Peace:
Frankfurt’s higher regional court this week ruled that the late American psychologist Helen Schucman, and not Jesus Christ, should be regarded the legal author of a book that Schucman claimed had been dictated to her by Jesus in a series of “waking dreams”.
Germany’s New Christian Endeavour Academy, a registered association, last year published extracts from A Course in Miracles, originally published in 1975, on its website. The association argued that Schucman had not considered herself the author of the work, and referred to a 2003 ruling by a New York court that it said had put the work into the public domain.
“For many there is no doubt that Jesus of Nazareth is the author of the course and that copyright law therefore doesn’t apply to his work,” the academy said.
However, the US-based Foundation for Inner Peace, which claims to have inherited copyright for the book after Schucman’s death in 1981, protested against the publication and took the case to court. Now the Frankfurt judges have ruled that the law is on the foundation’s side.
The court reasoned that Schucman should be considered the sole author of the work, and not merely an assistant or typist. The authorship of a work was not determined by the mental state of its creator but the “actual process of creation”, the court said, meaning a writer was the legal owner of his work even if he or she had written it while mentally disturbed, in a trance or under hypnosis.
So Helen Schucman and The Foundation for Inner Peace have apparently made millions off of her claim that Jesus channeled “A Course in Miracles” directly to her, but of course, if that were true, and these truly were the direct words of Christ, neither she nor the Foundation would claim ownership of those words, as they would be public domain, like the Bible itself. But these Jews want to have their cake and eat it too — they want to continue to make money off these fictional words of Jesus, but they can only do that if Jesus is the author.
No doubt, the rabid followers of “A Course In Miracles” never doubted for a second the idea that Jesus would use a jewess with a doctorate in psychology to convey His message to the world. And of course, if He did choose Schucman, He’d surely want her and her jewish business partners to continue to benefit financially from this arrangement, nor would He expect them to share any of those riches — or even His message — with anyone else who isn’t willing to pay up.
