THIS 100%Jesus was like Buddha and others through history who came to understand human suffering and try help their fellow people.
But why is it that all the idiots that follow these people manage to totally misinterpret the message and spend a lifetime persecuting others who don't..?THIS 100%
It makes no difference to me if it is Jesus, Siddhārtha Gautama, Kali or Judas Thassaeus as all religious concepts have a message & that is to be blunt "Don't be an idiot or horrible to others"
To quote the might Townes from his song "Lungs"...........
"Jesus was an only son
And love his only concept
Strangers cry in foreign tongues
And dirty up the doorstep"
Because they are to be blunt fucking dumb & unable to think for some reason.But why is it that all the idiots that follow these people manage to totally misinterpret the message and spend a lifetime persecuting others who don't..?
This is why I hate religion, because it brings out the worst in people.
yeah quite a intresting ritual i have never gotten around to using DPT yet, but i have done 5-meo dmt and dmt. I never used MXE, most my insights come from high doses LSD + DMT together
Excellently summarised, top post, you understand wellYeah Jesus as I understand him was a great man with he right idea about how to be a good person, who was radically preaching against the status quo at the time and trying to give people a personal connection to their spirituality. He was a radical pacifist communist essentially, who was brutally killed by the then-establishment for attempting to disrupt their hold over the people. His movement gained traction after his death until roughly 300 years later it threatened to disrupt Rome's hold over its population, so it was adopted by the state and corrupted into Catholicism for the purpose of social control. The Reformation much later was an attempt to re-establish the original point of his teachings, but of course it was also corrupted. I don't think Jesus the man wanted to be worshipped or have an organized religion formed in his name. He seemed to me to be saying basically that we are all a part of god, and we could have heaven on earth if we just loved all others as our brothers and sisters, and shared our resources to support everyone. His message (even as quoted in the books allowed to be in the Bible, and even moreso in some of the books found that he Catholic church didn't allow in the Bible) is one I very much agree with. I would have loved to be able to meet the guy, he sounded like a special person. It's very tragic what happened.
The Romans rationalized their brutal murder of him later by claiming that his death was part of god's plan and necessary. But really it was murder. It doesn't even make sense that "god" would produce a population who can't help but sin, and send them all to an eternity of suffering for it, and then produce a son with the intention of murdering him brutally to atone for the sins of his creations, when he';s fucking god and could literally do anything. It's a fairy tale used to justify the murdering of the spiritual leader of the very people who formed the religion that installed him as the spiritual leader.
He died to give us the Word. The Way to live without sin. Thus, dying (ultimate sacrifice) for our sins. Redeemed by the blood of Christ.Anyway, I'm no fuckin Jesus freak, but I was under the impression that he was 'resurrected' after he 'died' on the cross. Therefore, he didn't really die for anyone's sins did he? So I don't know what all the bloody fuss is about...
