The central message of anything considered "spiritual" should be God/the creator. Jesus, without actually saying so, sets himself up as a
mediator or go between to God through idolatry. That is what I now see. This makes me question his validity at all, because maybe he was someone else
(if he even existed), and that he is actually trying to weed out the majority who will fall for his scheme.
You are bringing up valid points! Here is my take;
I do not believe for one second that he started a religion called Christianity. It is my belief that much of what he actually said, was diluted,
exaggerated or stretched (the concept of the Synoptic Gospels would seem to support what I am saying). Mankind made him the God! So what could have
been his mission in coming to earth, if religion has it wrong?
It could have helped Jah to have a shift in his intolerance towards man (think of the Matrix!). Because Jesus gained first hand experience and then
shared his experience with heavenly congress - later. This I believe, is the whole reason for the ransom sacrifice
: to consume the virus of
shame that had existed for four thousand years, and by his sacrificial death, offered man a fresh opportunity to deal with this inherited virus. He in
a symbolic injection - an antidote!
I think it is a dichotomy that Paul made a religion of Christ when Christ came to show brilliantly how religion does not, nor cannot work for the
betterment of mankind. Jesus strove to educate man in a different way, and wanted to show us that we could be free from bondage to religious leaders
and religious dogma and pagan beliefs. To live by the principles of the Mosaic Law, yet not be in bondage to it. The ability to develop consciences
not spurred on by any religion, but by free will, and to use this free will to the worship of his Father.
He was never to replace his Father, nor to be worshiped. Consider that he might actually be just the beginning - leading to something that is quite a
bit bigger than what he represented.
Perhaps he was part of a big contest or plan to help man discover and expose what the actual truths are? Maybe these are the questions that are now
coming to light and being answered?
Where enlightenment could come in is in the possibility that Jesus was only the beginning and not the end! I do not think that the message that Jah is
trying to relate - ended in Jesus.
