Ok, just a complaint:
Why is it that everyone I hear always goes about with "Jesus this, God that, Christianity yadda yadda" and they fail to acknowledge Islam, or Judaism (sort of), or Hinduism, or Sikhism, Jainism, Buddhism, tribalism, all the -isms you can think of, why is Christianity so talked about, even when there's like at least one BILLION Moslems out there and growing, why?
It's probably because... most of the people I hear are raised in Christian environs. Sigh... I don't know, maybe it's just Eurocentrisim to some odd degree, or just a reaction to the environment, but no one that I hear talks about the lies and deciets within, say, the Quran, or the Vedic texts, or how about Confucian prose? Why is it that the Europeans are so bad? Some sort of guilt trip? Did Fransisco Pizarro and his slaughter of a bunch of Native Americans shame us for eternity? Has the fact that the industrialist capitalists have, by a large majority, a fair skin tone made us hate ourselves by association? Why do we even think about this?
I suppose I wandered a bit. No offense meant, Deelight, it's just I hear way too much about Christianity and its exploits. Or, perhaps by its believers, its good exploits. Nostradamus, the Catholic Church, Vatican, Sananda... it's, I don't know, maybe I got something to work about. I got to stop caring, probably. Ackknowledge it, but let it pass.
take a look at this. it will help enlighten you on the whole Jesus myth.
you can always use old writing's to try to strengthen a causes but to really no the truth you need to speak with a person that lived in that time, to believed in the books of history is not to finding the truth, all writing´s can and are being used to manipulate the human´s about there true heritage,
You are welcome to access the largest esoteric library available for free. you will beable to find out about our history, and so much more:
Much of the bible is filled with distortions and has been twisted by those in power, as you mention and we need to really read between the lines. The Crusades, witch hunts, persecuting scientist, spreading fear propaganda like hell, etc, which were all part of the insanity of this egoistic, monotheistic, hierarchical institution. Those of us who can see through the fearful doctrines can see clearly how we've been lead down the wrong path (into the ditch) that only served those who craved ego domination, power, money, control, etc.
For me I can clearly see that religion has held me back, far too long, but at the same time if it wasn't for this conditioning, I probably wouldn't have wanted to expand my knowledge and listen to my heart calling me to remember my real higher self, not the sinner that the church preaches in the pulpit... so in that way it was part of my plan to see through, the man- made institution of religion.
The hands of time have shifted and we can choose to let perfect love dissolved those ego fears.
Great thoughts friend, lots to wonder about with the Vatican as I wonder if they'll ever release the truths they've suppressed for centuries!
