I saw from another thread about christ dying for our sins to be forgiven - however, I have trouble with that whole concept for a number of reasons not
to mention that the word 'sin' comes from old English, not from the desert languages and is an archery term, it didn't come into early
christianity. It merely shows to me how manipulated our religions are, even from their inception. The impetus of religious dogma from the desert
religions as ground into us deliberately when we are very young and accepting. They are about doing what we are told to do and what we are to think
… by the church/mosque/ synagogue and that is the problem with the idea of why did christ really die.
It doesn't take an Einstein to realise that it is obviously convenient to have us all obeying the 10 commandments, (again not original to the desert
religions and much older than their inception), however, these ensured that people living together would be civilised towards each other - which meant
less attention from the Emperor and his civil servants in the courts, so a more orderly and peaceful running town etc,
So am I back with the idea that a sin is supposed to be something that God doesn't like and that's why christ died? well bearing in mind that one
of today's sins e.g.. killing gives us a major problem; we execute/kill people who do things either the emporer or some high up doesn't like on
the earth -(Some countries have stopped but capitol punishment has been the law for longer than it has been repealed and we also kill during war etc
regardless of whether God likes it or not. This nullifies the idea of the credability of the 10 commandments, and our doing what the dessert
relgions tell us God likes us to do - so back to why did Jesus, the son of God, have to put himself into the position of ensuring that he would be
killed for us, especially 'for' us and what was he really doing, letting himself be killed knowing that God doesn't like killing?
The only reason I can come up with, is in order to make us feel guilt and through that guilt, oblige those of us that buy into religion to its guilt
trip? Bearing in mind we already know that the original desert religion is fraught with problems, in that its shaky origins are taken from other
civilisation's myths and based on a character from a pantheon of gods from which it elected only to adopt yahweh, whom was partnered to ashterah and
both originally worhsipped in the temple. We have a religion that sidestepped its own history, makes their chosen god's pantheon disappear - along
with his wife and then if we pick up the Egyptian concept of a single God. To confound the situation ever further we make a worshipful trinity of
the single god, his murdered son and instead of a Mother, a holy ghost whose only contribution is to appear on rare occasions as a bird above
people's heads. Should people feel guilty for Christ at all? Can we make sense of why he chose to die, as we know, but don't like to think about
the fact he was going against his father's commandment himself? Should we feel guilty?
