I don't suppose it's occurred to you that Jesus KNEW Judas would betray Him, told Judas to "do it quickly"
IF! That isn't just myth. And you say he even carried his own cross, yeah mmh hmm, SO DID EVERY OTHER LOW LIFE CRIMINAL AND SLAVE!
If you can't see that Jesus is just a cult idol then you're pretty blind, and this is comming from someone who's tollerant of religions
tollerance doesn't change truth.
Jesus, preached a GOOD idea, he was killed for it, and he certainly did not sit there at be shot in the head, after being asked, "do you want to
yeild?" no...he was strapped to a cross, unable to change his mind once the ball was rolling.
But then somewhere down the line, the Jesus cult grew larger, and started to riot destroying Roman temples in rome, and so they decided enough is
enough, we'll just kill them all off, and the rest is history.
The truth of Jesus is interpreted by each person, but historically, he's not the "Most martyred", that was my point, there are many more people
martyred willingly in much worse and fanatical fassions than him.
Hah...ugh...I doubt you've read Ghandi's biography, so if you point out where this Hindu man believing in 300,000,000+ gods, says "JESUS CAME TO
ME, AND I SAW THE LIGHT OF HOW TO FREE MY PEOPLE!" I'll believe you.
Haven't you heard, you can't be a christian AND a hindu, christians hate pagan heathens who don't believe in the TRINITY (Ironic no?)
You want to be technical, Buddha was the greater non-violent activist, hell his movement survives today over 2500 years AND never once have they
fought a holy war, Jesus's followers fought what....378 holy wars?
13 crusades, maybe it was 15, numerous slaughtering of European tribes, the 30 years war, the inquisitions....some peace activist! How you leave your
followers when you go is as much important as how you lead them when you're a live, in that truthful philosophy Jesus was an utter failure, except
for maybe the TRUE christians (the aramthians is it?) I don't think they've really invovlved themselves in super holy wars.
"I did once seriously think of embracing the Christian faith," Gandhi told Millie Polak, the wife of one of his earliest disciples. "The gentle
figure of Christ, so patient, so kind, so loving, so full of forgiveness that he taught his followers not to retailate when abused or struck, but to
turn the other cheek, I thought it was a beautiful example of the perfect man..."
Site this, AND site where it says Martin Luther King is a Freemason, I've seen no doccumented proof of that at all, and doubt it very much.
Yeah and your suggestive comment about the freemason thing only shows how Jesus was an utter failure.
PS. Maybe Christians should stop making Jesus a failure, act the way he wanted people to act, and make him the "son of god" he is supposed to be,
rather than crapping on his name by being such hypocrits (refers mainly to the church, not the individual christian whom does show great signs of
being very "christ-like" but for some reason the religion is very hypocritical and even violent, and arrogant//intollerant)
