Every picture I've seen of JC he was a white guy with a beard, why is that?
Most also have Jesus in a gleaming white robe, with manicured nails, a flawless complexion...
Not to mention brilliantly styled long dirty blond hair...
Idealised imagery... that's all it is... Oh and of course a strange "white superiority complex" that seems to infest the world...
Sometimes I am slow but I realized the other day that rather than listening to Jesus as a teacher, they have idolized him as God. Something he
clearly said not to do. I see why you don't like Paul so much now. But that is still not Paul's message. Since I did not even get that until now,
I'm pretty sure I understand Paul a little better than the church. I actually think he agree with Christ, the church not even close, but Christ yes.
Play the game the word love is the key and you should know if there is any key it would be the word love. Jesus claimed to be the light/love of this
world. Paul simply is worshiping love in the name of Jesus Christ his teacher. It was Christ that taught him love, so he is acknowledging that the
source of his love was the Christ.
To eliminate the Idol worship changes the words that are synonym for love and change them to love. Jesus being one that needs to be changed. It
changes the whole message from worship the Jesus persona to worship love.
Would we not agree that to worship/pursue/actively love is what Jesus is teaching? In essence God is love, and has always loved us, so that we can
let go of what hinders us and become one with all.
How far off am I from understanding you?
