The phenomenon of the church and its continued existence is well known.


The phenomenon of plagiarism? Absolutely.


I don't know what all you think worship is supposed to involve. All I was saying is to recognize that there is a help from outside of ourselves that we need.


Sycophancy.


He did, then it was written down, and we can read it today.


None of those accounts were written by his hand.


That's not something I suggest people doing.


I never said you did. I said other people do it. Lots of other people.

Well . . study up on the New Testament to the point where you can demonstrate, when the topic comes up, that it does not support a "second coming" that a lot of people are so hysterical about.

The second coming of the Lord for any Christian will be when any of them truly commune with the Divine through their Master Jesus by loving God fully and their neighbor as oneself - just as he instructed his disciples and everyone to do.

Many Christians think they are let off the hook with Jesus' sacrifice - but Jesus kicks ass with his core commandments of love! If those commandments were actually lived fully and responsibly, the body-mind would be flooded with the Indivisible Light of God.

I do not need the New Testament to tell me what a tyrant is, nor what love is.

Jesus went up against tyranny of every form - with, in and for the sake of, love.

I used to be a real rebel just like you, but I re-read the gospels again with an open mind free from any contemptuous bias prior to investigation, and then something new and different that I'd never considered before began to percolate and now it's blossomed into a newfound awareness and understanding about love and tyranny.

I encourage you to give it another read with emphasis on the teachings of Jesus and what their deeper meaning and significance might be.

Forget Churchianity and all that - let's look into the wisdom teaching for what's of value.

i.e.:

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for what is right for they SHALL be satisfied."

Take this one for example, which implies in no uncertain terms that the deep nature of reality IS righteousness itself and even one capable of satisfying our hunger and our thirst..

Why ignore unparalleled genius such as this because of one's own bias and prejudice? That's not understanding and the desire for understanding.

I stand for the freedom of destiny. I refuse to believe that salvation is restricted to the manifestation of a human male. It's so utterly narrow as to be the opposite of salvation.

Depends on the true nature of the human being in creation - could be vast.. just say'n.. maybe there's more to us than meets the eye.

I think it would help you to effectively articulate it in the language of who apparently is your core target.

Irrationality only confuses the issue.
