[To IAMIAM.. I completely respect your position, as I was close to that line of thinking at one time. I am curious, if you have time, to get your
take on the following video I've posted a couple times (below) around this forum... Thanks...
Well my friend, in my younger years, I was a part of the "They are all the same Sun God" bandwagon. This is because I bought into the miconceptions of
others and the intentionally misleading traditions of the Catholic Church.
One day I decided to sit down and actually read what Christ was all about. I was amazed. He never says how he was born, you would think he would but
he didn't. He never says how he grew up. Christ comes on the scene at a time when the people were oppressed by the Romans on one side, and the
Priesthood of various cults on the other. He comes in as a revolutionary Rabbi and immediately starts a peaceful revolution against the powers that
His first sermon, The Sermon on the Mount, was a direct attack at the Priestclass and government. He starts telling people a different doctrine than
what both have been teaching.
Read this direct confrontation with the Priests of the Temple:
20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the
kingdom of heaven. 21
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22But I say unto
you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall
be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. 23Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and
there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy
brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary
deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. 26Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means
come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
27Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust
after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. 29And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is
profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. 30And if thy right hand offend thee,
cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast
into hell. 31It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: 32But I say unto you, That whosoever
shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced
33Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: 34But
I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: 35Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it
is the city of the great King. 36Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. 37But let your
communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
38Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall
smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke
also. 41And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. 42Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn
not thou away. 43Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44But I say unto you, Love your enemies,
bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the
just and on the unjust. 46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47And if ye salute your
brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is
This is as rebellious as it gets my friend. Imagine someone standing in the public square today and saying something like this:
You have heard it said that if a Man fornicates with a Man, then he will surely be condemned to hell. But, I say to you that a Man who does not love
his fellow Man will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. I say again, Love one another.
You have heard it said that if a Man commits an evil, they must come before the church and confess their sins or they shall be condemned to hell. But,
I say unto you, if a Man does an evil he should confess it to his Brother who he has harmed, and that Brother should forgive him. I say again, forgive
one another, or do not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
You have heard it said that a Man must bow before Christ and accept him as your savior, or you will be condemned to hell. But, I say to you that you
should see Christ in your fellow man, and reach out to them when you need to be saved, and he being reached out to should be as Christ, and do they
Brothers bidding. I say again, Love one another, even as Christ Loved you.
I mean, could you imagine the balls someone would have to have to say such things? Can you imagine how the powers that be would react?
How about if it was taken a step further:
What should we do about all these damn taxes the government keeps taking from us?
Give the government back all the worthless crap it has given you. Give them back there worthless paper. Give them back the money. Give them back the
paper which your laws are written on. Give them back the paper which says they own your house. Give them back the authority over your lives.
Give to God, the divine spirit within all man, that which belongs to God, your love, devotion, and mutual aid and assistance in this world. Stand up
and be Kings and Queens working together in the Kingdom of God.
Yeah, someone who would say such things, just might be labeled a heretic, nailed to a cross, and distorted in the history books.
Sun God? NO. Son of God? YES. And, if you believe Christ was, he believed you were too. If you believe I am, I believe you are too. If you stand with
me, I will stand with you. If you love as Christ did, the world will love you too.
Well, not TPTB.
