I'm becoming convinced Jesus was a yogi. Atleast in essence, not saying he went to india. Everything Christ said makes sense from the eastern viewpoint. But when you look at it from mainstream Christianity's perspective you end up with schizophrenic( i love you but i'll send you to hell) tyrant(my way or highway) god. After liberating myself from the church I begun to think that Christ was an invention of the catholic church to oppress people. And while it's likely(and probably proven) they dabbled with the early Christian writings to scare people into submitting to the church i now see value in Christ. If you believe that Christ to be the one and true god and that prompts you to be a good person and to love people without conditions then Christ was successful.but the problem with this is what is evident. People are separating themselves from half the world because they worship a different form of the formless. while i see him as an ordinary person who dissolved his ego to where it was no longer him living but the divine that was within him, and that is within us. I wish more Christians were like Christ. To love and to be nothing but love. With no intention of receiving anything and actually dying for love's sake.

Interesting to note...he left for several years then he returned and began his ministry(the missing time in the bible)....if you listen to his words in your heart you can hear the same inspiration behind them as other yogi. Just thinking it out....being realistic...he lived closer to the west of the continent, so it might be safe to assume one would often travel east...and I am sure the rumors of great teachers in the east would have reached his ears....it would be hard to assume he did not explore while he was missing for 5-10 years....

Also the controversial dead sea scrolls imply a teacher they called "Isa" that traveled to India and may have even taught some of the yogis as well as learning from them....but the controversy arises because so many people think he was not a man...although its pretty obvious he was, then he unlocked something within himself...knowledge and ability...it would make sense to be correlated to yogi enlightenment...although he may not have been "a Yogi". I think it would be safe to assume he was aware of their ideas, for they all come from the same god within us...

I feel Jesus definitely made a trip to India, there is a tomb dedicated to Yus Asaph who is actually believed to be Jesus.

A Yogi Bear?

Sorry for the off topic thing, but that's what I first thought when I saw the title


But back to what you are saying, it's an interesting theory.

A lot of people would hate me for it but I actually think Jesus is similar to a magician, is a magician, or was a magician. What is magic? The defintion has changed 2,000 years later. Magic is anything causes someone to be amazed. It doesn't have to be created by evil powers, it doesn't need to include trickery, its just needs to open your eyes.

The People Of The World These Days have the will to open Their Mouths, not Your Eyes.

The bible teaches Christians Jesus was God. A part of the Trinity. Human and Deity.
A yogi is just a man.
Great theory but nonsensical in light of what every other yogi who has ever lived has achieved.
Absolutely nothing.

Believe what you want, but a yogi he certainly wasnt.

Thats insanity.
Jesus taught equality. The Indian religions dont teach equality, they teach nothing even remotely related to Christianity.
Go study the caste system. Jesus taught only one God.
Jesus would have been completely opposed to Hinduism and budhism, they are pagan in every way.

How do you know this? Because Jesus spoke to you personally???
Jesus never uttered a single word about hinduism or buddhism, both of which were existent during his time.

I don't think a human has dissovled or removed there ego. Would you even call them human? Jesus as other people just had it undercontrol.

Well yeah he did... in the new testament.
Read the teachings of Jesus and compare them to the New Age teachings of Hinduism and Budhism as I previously suggested.

New age teachings may draw from hinduism and buddhism... but those two are anything but "new age", as they pre-date christianity.
So, what were you saying about ignorance being bliss to the fool, again?

Sharp as a bowling ball that boy, sharp as a bowling ball.

The New Age movement includes elements of older spiritual and religious traditions ranging from atheism and monotheism through classical pantheism, naturalistic pantheism, pandeism and panentheism to polytheism combined with science and Gaia philosophy; particularly archaeoastronomy, astronomy, ecology, environmentalism, the Gaia hypothesis, psychology, and physics. New Age practices and philosophies sometimes draw inspiration from major world religions: Buddhism, Taoism, Chinese folk religion, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism; with strong influences from East Asian religions, Gnosticism, Neopaganism, New Thought, Spiritualism, Theosophy, Universalism, and Western esotericism.[8] The term New Age refers to the coming astrological Age of Aquarius.[1]

Hinduism pre-dates the so called "new age" religion. You said "new age teachings of hinduism". Re-read what you wrote earlier. Your wiki copy-paste does not prove anything.



The term New Age refers to the coming astrological Age of Aquarius.


Some new agers interpret Luke 22:10, where Jesus was speaking of a man with a jar of water, to conclude that Jesus himself taught the new age ideas such as the age of aquarius.

The symbol of Aquarius is that of a man carrying water.

You dont care because you dont know

Next time, try and make an effort to know...and in the process, "deny ignorance"....as it says under the websites logo.

No need to thank me, my friend.....you are most welcome.

As you see in my first statement and in the link I provided, I do know. Even went about explaining it to some degree.
Not very hard to understand either, well for most.
I dont care if you understand or for your opinion and dont care to waste any more of my time.
So next time you see an "I dont care" dont assume, your comprehension of it may be wrong...again

Explain what? Most of your post was a wiki copy paste without little context to your previous statement.

All you have of your own is a wrong assumption that hinduism/buddhism = new age, and a closed mind... just like all your other christian brethren.
