Can you tell me one evil thing Jesus taught? Name one.
Do his teachings not show humanity how to love above all? Love your neighbor as yourself, and love God with all you heart, soul, mind and strength.
Please help me see the deception because I do not see it.
What would you have to gain by allowing people to blindly believe something false that has been used to manipulate and deceive them?
Yes... one thing..
Here is a great summery a good friend of mine posted up.. he says it much better than I could:
"Yes, there was something Jesus did, which I wish he had not done, because it does
not represent well the People he belonged to.
Once a Gentile Canaanite mother was crying after him, asking for her daughter to be cured, and Jesus would not give a damn to her. His disciples told
him to do something for that woman or discard her, because she was making them go crazy with her no-stop crying.
What did Jesus say? I haven't come for Gentiles but ONLY for the House of Israel. Then, kept on going and the woman kept on crying and following him.
When he couldn't take any longer, he stopped and told her: Hey, listen, what do you want from me? To cure my daughter Master. No way, I cannot take
of the food of the children and throw it unto the dogs.
He meant the Jews for the children, and the Gentiles for the dogs. But only after the woman understood and recognized her condition of dog, by saying
that the dogs also feed from the crumbles that fall from the table of the children, Jesus saw that he would never get rid of that woman. So, he
changed his mind and cured her
daughter. Then, to erase a little the impression left on her for being forced to recognize her doggy condition, he mentioned something about her
strong faith and left.
That was terrible, if we can imagine what that poor woman went through till she got
what she wanted. The text is in Matthew 15:21-28."
So, you tell me.... does that show humanity how to love each other?
