So, what are you trying to say?
That we are the temple that should be built and Jesus is diverting us from building ourselves into our own God?
Your thesis seems a little contradictory, to me.
Is god really our enemy, who we have to fight against, in order to gain our own potentials?
Maybe I missunderstand you.

When the builders rejected Jesus, they threw that stone in front of us and it now becomes our stumbling block to join the builders of the true temple.
Jesus testimony was true, but it is our beliefs about him that have become our cross and burden. He became both the stone the builders rejected and our stumbling block at the same time.
For if a man relies on Jesus to save them, they are placing a block in front of the true God.
Jesus was the son that was begotten and discarded, and he has set himself up to be a block for anyone else wishing to reach God. No true Father would ask us to make a choice between dying by natural causes or by our own hand, and that is the choices Jesus talked of spoken in the message of him self and Judas. Its also the message of the crucifixtion that no matter if you work to support your body by your hands or by walking in faith of his death to save you, your body will get tired and die.
He set himself up to divide us so he could sit as King as the true son, when in fact it is denying everyone else in God's house kingship.
He's the one God sacrificed, and if you believe in him, you are denying the one who sent him.
