To be honest i am by far not one of the bible readers who is capable to repeat phrases out there. as the thread goes on i leave it out to the ones in
here who understand what i want to point out. Born 1981 in east germany, i had a normal christian religious education, i heard the stories of jesus,
god and so on. hearing the stories of jesus, i thought "when they are really true, jesus must have been an incredible human being."
But unfortunatly i didn't know him...i didn't feel that i have to belong to a certain religion, so i didn't pay much attention to the bible in my
younger ages. it was a little bit too far away for me. the only thing which kept in me was the message he delivered and for what the person jesus
and i say if jesus was the message, michael jackson was his voice!
In my childhood there was no other artist i loved more. listning to his songs i understood early, that something in this world is not right at place,
in his songs i heard the same feeling which i have since i remember thinking. more than 20 years later i understood...realising how much we get lied
to everyday, it came clear to me that the feeling i had was right all the time
But now i understand even better that indeed this whole world is just in between all of us, all it's aspects from good to bad. and we don't need to
point out our fingers to others instead we just need to look in the mirror to see if we really make this change we want to see in the world
so i want to share with you the MESSAGE which one man preeched us through his songs, a man we were all able to withness in this time, a man who gave
us joy and pleasure, a man we saw suffering and with whom we were suffering with. a man, who had to take so much but who gave back so much more. a man
who had to carry so much on his small shoulders but who kept on walking for us until the very day, a man which words touched us deep in ourself. a man
who gone 2 soon
we all dream of this world where we forget about our boundaries and live side by side as brothers and sisters.
yes, indeed we all are michael jacksons, believing in a world which can be so much more better....right now its only better on the other side
so he was with us 50 years, assisting this world to make a difference since he was a kid, so let us remember this remarkable human being, he let us
know that we are not alone. we saw michael jackson and his MESSAGE resurrected on this memorial day, the 7th of July 2009
so may i ask you: if jesus was one of us, who performed miracles right here on earth, how much more miracles can a human being perform than MJ did in
unifying a whole world with his message?
so this is my personal tribute to you michael jackson. Thank you for being with us in this incredible time. thank you for not giving up your dreams of
a better world, it will remind us as jesus did. his spirit is the same as jesus carried on and this very spirit will live on forever until we arrive
were we all come from...
feel free to share your tribute in this thread...
2,000 years ago when Jesus said 'let the children come to me', he did NOT mean let them come to me so I can give them wine, get them drunk, and have
them sleep in bed with me.
Michael Jackson was a great performer. He had a tragic life. He was
abused and used by everyone around him from the time he was a small child. He was a man who was seriously uncomfortable in his own skin -
uncomfortable with his race and his gender.
If Michael Jackson were Jesus reincarnated he wouldn't have had to use massive amounts of plastic surgery to 'adjust' his looks and he wouldn't
have been hooked on high powered illegal drugs.

Michael Jackson wasn't Jesus - he died 2000 years ago.
What Michael Jackson is, is one of them people who are born every now and again, like Jesus, and many others - say, John Lennon, or Gandhi, or Abraham
Lincoln - who are good and kind enough in intention and lucky enough to have the fame to spread a message. The same message everybody should be
spreading, the one that religion calls 'Love' - I call it "Lets just all be nice to each other instead of boxing ourselves off, creating enemies in
our minds, and work together to make this a better place for everyone"
Of course MJ had all them niggling court problems etc - but he was never actually found guilty. Even if he had done wrong, I'm of the belief that he
didn't even know he was doing anything wrong, his childhood was taken from him and he just wanted to see what being a kid is like again. I don't
know if he was or wasn't a paedophile, all I know is that he was a man who wanted a better world and did what he could to spread 'the message'.
S&F for putting so much effort into the thread, I'm very impressed!
Haven't we had enough of all this MJ garbage?
thats the only thing on tv so i come on here and get people comparing him to Jesus??!!!?? what is wrong with this picture?
He was an artist.. no greater or worse than many other artists, it just depends on your taste of music.. accentric like a lot of artists and in the
public limelight so he did things for charity as it was good for his image.
I dont think you can really compare John Lennon to Ghandi.
Lennon was far from perfect and was not the "give peace a chance" person he is depicted as now.
He could be racist and sexist and cruel to even his closest friends at times.

So basically, what I get from that statement is, if he did touch little boys and such, it was ok cause he didn't have a childhood and didn't know it
was wrong? Oy! I didn't touch my friends or sleep in the same bed as them at sleepovers when I was a kid.
He was a pop star, and he isn't the first pop star or celebrity for that matter to try and preach the message of peace and equality....John Lennon
was a peace lover and sang about it...MJ wasn't Jesus, and he certainly wasn't unique and special IMO.
He was listed in the 2000 edition of the Guiness Book Of World Records for breaking the world record for the "Most Charities Supported By a Pop
Star". It states that Michael Jackson has supported 39 charity organizations either with monetary donations through sponsorships of their projects or
by participating in their silent auction.
You know what, I'm not going to waste my energy replying to the idiots on this forum.
Such a shame that all the decent topics get derailed by people who are on here all the time because their flipping ego's are too big to fit through
the door out the room.
Everybody can be nasty to people they're close to - but it all goes round full circle.
I'm just saying look at the legacy - its people like these who often inspire a generation or more of people who are against tyranny and war.
If you're still convinced he's nothing more than a worthless bit of dog muck stuck to your shoe, then please continue your obscene ego
gratification, I bet it must make you really feel like your SO much better than everyone.
