I have a deep admiration for the Desert Fathers and for Augustine. I would like to be more like them.

But, these Desert Fathers were not following the type of Christianity that you follow. If I posted to you some of their theological/spiritual/philosophical beliefs, you would call them "heretics".

Origien believed in Trinitarian/Monistic Emanationism (as opposed to Creationism), he believed in Universal Salvation (everyone eventually goes to Heaven), he believed that Christ died an Exemplary death (not a Sacrificial/Atonement death), he believed in reincarnation, he believed in the importance of good works, believed in Universal Revelation (as opposted to Particularist Revelation in the Bible only; he was very close with Platonists, Essenes, Gnostics and Buddhists) and he believed that God was masculine and feminine.

The others may have not had all of those beliefs, but they each had at least one of those beliefs.

That is original Black Christianity. Nothing like what Creflow Dollar, T.D. Jakes, Eddie Long, Shirley Caesar, and other Black preachers today preach. Black Christianity today is simply White Christianity through the lenses of African-AMERICAN culture and spoken through Black mouths.
