Not really... He taught what was needed

His followers went on to teach and spread his message...

Three years was apparently enough



Apparently.

Forever judgment is not for the wise. And I am not saying the goats deserve leniency. They deserve the exact mirror fate they created. Nothing less/nothing more.

I agree that Paul created duality dogma (separation of people by faith and not merit). The tool of the deceivers.

Same tool of enslavement by the goats.


If he knew what he was really talking about he would not mystify but demystify. But he instead put himself up between the rest of the world and those who can hear beyond the veil (Corinthians 14). Pushing his mystic "interpretations" up while pushing the people who can really hear down. A logical ONE do not need a lesser logical being to interpret what is clear for all who have eyes and ears to hear.

If it is female or male body do not matter if the measurement/message is objectively true and precise. This is not wise.


Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.

Remember that "Love and do what thou will is the whole of the law" is a quote by Saint Augustine of Hippo, not of Aleister Crowley.

No surprise there, anyway, both liked the phrase and concept of "do what thou will". Augustine was just more hypocritical about it when it comes to people doing things against his will. Besides "love" and "do what thou will" are incompatible ideologies.

Religion Used for Evil Ends

The apostle Paul warned the early Christians that some would use Christianity for evil ends. He said: “Oppressive wolves will enter in among you and will not treat the flock with tenderness, and from among you yourselves men will rise and speak twisted things to draw away the disciples after themselves.” (Acts 20:29, 30) One who spoke “twisted things” was the Roman Catholic theologian Augustine. Jesus had taught his followers to convince others by reasoning from the Scriptures. However, Augustine twisted the meaning of Jesus’ words recorded at Luke 14:23, “Compel them to come in,” to mean that it was all right to use force in the work of converting people. (Matthew 28:19, 20; Acts 28:23, 24) Augustine used religion to control people.

Source: Religion—What Good Does It Do?

A lot of blood has been spilled on this earth because of forced conversion and those justifying it.

Matthew 23:27-32 (Jesus speaking about the Augustine-types):

27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you resemble whitewashed graves, which outwardly indeed appear beautiful but inside are full of dead men’s bones and of every sort of uncleanness. 28 In the same way, on the outside you appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you build the graves of the prophets and decorate the tombs of the righteous ones, 30 and you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our forefathers, we would not have shared with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31 Therefore, you are testifying against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Well, then, fill up the measure of your forefathers.

I agree, Though God loves all people. But the benefits of His love can only be applied to those who have placed their faith on Jesus Christ for their salvation, which is one of those benefits of God's love.

Please nobody get me wrong, I am not saying God only loves the saved. I am saying the benefits of his love are only applied to those who are saved.

But God loves everybody alike.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Roms 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

No.. God would not have preferred it that way. I always thought it meant something about the horrible treatment Christians were going to receive shortly after Christ died... and He was informing them that this would cause many divisions in families. Could be wrong about that ... wouldn't be the first time I misunderstood scripture from the bible.

But there is a vast difference between our current cultrual attitudes towards women as there was back then. Some people wont recognize that in order to justify their poor attitude toward the scriptures, Paul and others.

Indeed, its atrocious
People have different opinions.

Put them to the sword

The OP is telling everyone what Christ taught, its true.
But, Jesus taught that to christians, if you are not a christian then please feel free to ignore it (not meaning you CJ)

Common sense should suggest that you should be nice to other people though

Some ideas are timeless. The reason Yeshua:s teachings is still relevant (and even cherished outside people who are Christian) and will stay relevant is because the ideas are timeless.

Paul should not be whitewashed for immature cultural practice. Neither should Muhammad be. It is a slippery slope for insane predatory behavior.

If you put yourself up as a timeless objective truth speaker (prophet, Christ/Messiah (anointed) or Buddha) then you better know what you are talking about or be ridiculed by the more aware beings who evolve afterwards. History is not kind to the unwise.

Let the flame throwing begin.

How about a nice juicy flamed vegetarian burger.

impossiblefoods
You have heard it said, "Whatever is sold in the butcher shop, eat, asking no question for the sake of conscience,"(I Corinthians 10:25). But I say unto you, "If you want quality vegetarian beef, ask around."

He speaks of Heaven. This is not Heaven. It is the world, and there are troubles in it.

No polarity in heaven, certainly there is orientation. No homos allowed.

I saw it on TV. Cooks just like beef. The land used to grow the different ingredients is less than what's needed to feed steers. Seemed kind of a good idea.

Did you know the name Jeshua (w/silent J) is found 30 times in the AV Bible translated in the New Jerusalem Version, OT only of course, Yeshua?

Yet not once is it used as the name of Christ, the King of the Jews.
