I've never meet a "Jesus". But I have meet the father, and have been given understanding. It was an experience and when it happened I knew the
father was within me, and I understood many things.
When I had the experience, I was no where near a church, and disliked organized religion very much. I still do. A few months after my experience,
I started to come across a few Jesus quotes. I was dumbfounded at what they were saying. The first one I read was:
John 14:20. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
I couldn't believe it, he was exactly right. I've known many Christians, been to many churches. Never was anything like this told to me. It was
always "accept Jesus", and seeing who could say the nicest thing possible about Jesus and how great he was, mixed in with a large dose of hypocrisy.
But it was exactly right.
In fact, John 14 completely describes what I experienced. And when I read Jesus, I see all the understandings I learned. I know for myself that
what he is saying is true.
So I don't know Jesus, but I can recognize the father within him. I know he speaks of understandings and wisdom that only come from the father.
And no man can give you those.
In the end, it doesn't matter to me at all if the "historical Jesus" actually exists. At all. It's not even an important question in things.
Either way, it's just a story to you. And even if there was no "historical Jesus", whoever wrote that story certainly knew the truth and knew the
father, and it shows.
So it doesn't matter. Arguing and even worrying about if Jesus is literally real or not is about like arguing over if Neo and the machines are
literally real. It doesn't matter what side of that argument you are on, you missed the entire point and real truth of the movie.
It's all about the understanding. Understanding can not be told, it can only be expressed. If you are arguing over the literal - on either side of
it, then you are just listening. You can't hear the real words, you can't hear and you have no real clue what is being said or talked about.
Honestly, I don't find it that hard to believe that someone like Jesus lived. Someone obviously lived that could think of the story if nothing
I'm not saying go to church or anything. I am not a Christian. But try focusing on what is important. How about debating the principles and
understandings he gives, rather than worthless debates of trying to prove if someone 2000 years ago lived or not? Either way, it's just a story as
is all of history you weren't there for.
What is it that Jesus teaches and does that you think is bad/wrong? Lets talk about that. Those are things we can apply to our lives in a helpful
