A letter from Jesus Christ to All Mankind. What The Saviour of The World really thinks.

What a mess.

Why did I bother?
Why did I bother?
Religious wars. Why drag me into it?
Religious wars. Why drag me into it?
These people are crucifying me all over again.
These people are crucifying me all over again.

A Message for The World from Jesus Christ.

This morning I was disturbed, just after my breakfast, when I was having my second cup of coffee, and my third cigarette. What caused me to jump in my chair was a loud thunderclap like noise that seemed to be coming from directly above the house. There were no clouds in the sky, and no rain was falling. Forgetting about the coffee, I rushed outside to look up at the sky. I expected to see an airplane crash, or a large asteroid on course to demolish me, and most of the country. To my surprise, the heavens seemed to be completely empty. My end appeared not to have come. I was just about to re-enter my house, when I distinctly heard a voice say
"not so soon. Look again mortal" .
I turned my gaze heavenwards again. There was, what appeared to be, a large envelope turning slowly round and falling towards me. The odd thing about it was that, although there was a breeze, it was decending straight down, as if I were its intended recipient. I waited until it landed at my feet, and then I picked it up. It was an envelope, and there was some writing on it.
This is what was written.

IMPORTANT. DO NOT THROW AWAY.

This is a letter from Jesus Christ.

You are to read it and then you are to transmit what it says to the world.

Since I am just the messenger, I am publishing the contents of the letter verbatim here.
Let the readers decide what to make of it.


The Letter.


Dear Mankind.

I have been your Lord and Saviour for two thousand years. Prior to that, I was your Creator, but not in the sense that most of you seem to think. There was no Adam and Eve. You came about much as Darwin says you did. One of your big mistakes, the one that really annoys Me, is that so many of you refuse to accept evolution. Did you really think that I had nothing better to do with My time, than put two naked people into a garden, and worry in case they ate some sort of forbidden fruit. I am Lord of The Universe, you know, not just your scrawny planet.
Genesis was a morality tale, designed to teach you that actions have consequences. Adam and Eve were metaphors. Get over it.

Point number two.

You people seem to never learn.

Around two thousand years ago, when I had decided that you might have reached the level of maturity to take on a lesson of peace and love, and to be given the news that I was your Lord and Saviour, and that you could be saved by learning to live in harmony with each other; I put on human form and came to Earth. I spent several years tramping round Palestine,( what a dump), raising the dead, curing the sick, risking pneumonia walking on water, feeding thousands from a basket of stinking fish and stale bread: and what happens. You crucify Me. This is not funny. Crucifixion is not a walk in the park. It took Me three hours to die, and some of you were even spitting on Me as I hung there.

OK. I did rise again. I thought that ought to do the trick. I really should have known better.
I said to Myself that I had done a good job, definitely pat on the back time for Jesus. I had come down, performed miracles, preached about love and tolerance, died in agony, and risen again. I felt sure you lot would get it right this time.

So I instructed the apostles to spread the message of love and redemption round the world, promised to come back at some future time, hopefully to take all of you to eternal happiness, and then I came back up to Heaven, intending to put My Divine Feet up for a while; believing that the message would really take. Job done.

Do you know that I have not had one minute's peace since.

The cries of agony that come up from your benighted planet haven't ceased night and day for the last two thousand years. If it were not so sick it would be almost funny. The message of love and tolerance that I left you with, has almost completely been killed. A lot of the time, it's been killed by My nominal followers.

You would probably think that it is the athiests that really "get My goat" You would be wrong there. I can cope with the notion that some people dont believe in Me. I am God, not Hitler. Atheists may be wrong about My existence, but at least they are not using My name to spread fear and hatred like some of the so called christians.

I mean to say. What about homosexuals?

I made them. It doesn't bother Me if consenting adults of the same sex want to go to bed with each other. I didn't actually make either Adam and Eve or Adam and Steve. So that idea just doesn't wash with Me.

What's with all this racist rubbish?

No colour or race is the best in My eyes. When I look down at the planet I left what do I see?
White people despise black people. Black people hate white people. Jews hate arabs. Arabs cant abide jews. One lot enslaves another lot, who are probably only waiting to enslave and oppress some other poor sods, when their moment of power comes.

Anyway enough of this. Enough of My time has been wasted. There is a point to this letter, and it is time that I got to it.

As I said earlier on I have been your Lord and Saviour for a long time now.

I died in agony for you.

I have put up with your shenanigans, for the last two thousand years, while I waited patiently for My message of Love and Peace to take hold amongst you.
You have constantly thrown it back in My face, just like you spat on Me while I hung on that cross.
Even now, you argue amongst yourselves about when I am coming back. You believe that I will sort out the mess.

Well I have news for you.

ONCE BITTEN. TWICE SHY.

I may be a loving God, but I am not a mug.

This is My letter of resignation as Lord and Saviour to humankind.

I am NOT coming back. I have had it with humans. From now on you are on your own.

There is a nice little planet in a galaxy far away, where the inhabitants are just reaching the level of development, where redemption might take. I am going to give them a try.

Yours Sincerely.

Jesus Christ. (Former Saviour of The World.)

I agree, I just got done writing a rant about this very thing. What are the odds there?

Hi Wintermyst.

Great minds think alike.

I'll go read yours now.

Thanks for dropping by.

I'm so glad this isn't a true story, but on the otherhand He has turned away from those who follow false idols. I am taking a look at my own trophy shelf to see again what I hold dearest.

Thank you for the Hub. I will now go and self examine.

There is no reason to disbelieve this claim of a direct message any more than one from a burning bush on stone tablets, or a mental implant of a message in a dream, such as the ones Moses and John got.

Besides, it makes nothing but sense. A wise creator has to recognize when a project has gone amuck. In the case of creating sentient beings or the conditions which evolved them, there may be hope if they get their acts together, but who could blame him if he tired of the task and the wait for signs of it?

After awhile, what more is there to say or do than live an exemplary life, teach its principles and die for them?

As that old Hitchcock character said, "That's one." "That's two." - and "three" was the last chance. And "Wise man know when it is enough," Confucius say.

Well done and quite possibly really inspired, christopher!

Thank you Nellieanna for your considered answer.

I couldn't really blame Him if He did give the whole project up. I know I would have done so ages ago.

I suppose the only reason for patience is love, which as far as I'm concerned, it the major message of it all - the one which is needed to be reflected in the world among its inhabitants. Who knows. I'm an optimistic realist - it could happen - or not.

On the other hand, it's an argument that there isn't anything or anyone "out there" and we are already in it o our own. Either way seems to me a good case for getting our stuff together to me! If we are evolving, it would be encouraging to think it wasn't in retro!

I hope your optimism is proven true Nellieanna. Sometimes things look bleak. We really do need to get our act together on a lot of things nowadays.

Um. As I mention - I'm an optimistic realist and a realistic optimist. It can go either way. I'm pretty certain that no saviour will ever MAKE people be good. That's the tricky part, isn't it? We might want to be good, but it's so HARD. If we must be good, wouldn't it be nice to just do it on "default" mode? LOL. NOT the way it works. The way it works is that no legislation, no house rules, no small rewards will make it happen. It is always our individual choices, moment to moment - many which build up to the almost impossible odds that we think we might blame for disastrous results - which can make a whit of dif. EACH person, not an entire community as a unit - has to make those choices. That it is possible is on the optimist's side & that it is difficult is on the realist's side of the equation IS how it IS.

The best part is that one CAN work on one's own self. And ultimately that is all one CAN do, anyway.

Nellieanna.

I think you are right there.

The way I see it, the greatest gift that God gave us was our free will, but it can make us, or break us, depending on how we use it.

Delightfully funny. But of course God is not such a pushover. He's no quitter when the game is just reaching its climax. Polarization is part of the plan. It reveals that both ends of a dichotomy are infested with the source of evil -- ego. The truly righteous are not that way for their own sakes. They are neutral and at peace.

God bless you, Christopher.

You are right there, but there must be times in which even He feels almost "enough is enough".

"Depending on how we use it" is surely the main point. What other value is free will but to sort out the better choices which would not clarify if our courses were pre-determined for us?

You are totally right there Nellieanna.

Free will allows us to choose between good and bad, or between good-bad (the realm of ego) versus the divine (realm of humility and perfect confidence). The divine, as described by the Buddhists is called the "paramita" or perfections. The perfection of generosity, for instance, would be generosity outside of the generous-selfish dichotomy. Too many are generous in self-serving ways. That's ego.

On the subject of sexuality, what about the so-called "imperfection" of the androgyne. How is the androgenous individual to cope with both genders within themselves? Does this bar them from any sex? Are they to have sex with themselves? Yikes! Or does their condition give them carte blanche to do it with either or both? Such silly questions.

In matters of spirit, such things matter little compared to awakening as a spiritual being (awakening the true self within--the immortal child of God). If such sexual activity gets in the way of this, then one needs to get rid of it. If not, then it's all cool. The most important thing here, though, is to be completely honest with one's self. Also important is to remain humble and hungry for wisdom. Sometimes, we can be dishonest with ourselves, because we don't want to give up some cherished possession or activity. Or we can be honest and say that we're simply not ready to give it up. That's okay, too. That's part of free will. And we live with the consequences. Even the suicide lives with their consequences.

What you say lone77star makes a lot of sense. An Hermaphodite would have a lot of problems.

There is far too much emphasis put on sexual sin in modern religion anyway. This tends to let people off the hook on the issues that really matter like stealing, murder etc.

Well, we've already had the Rapture, Chris - it's just that only two or three people were taken, and nobody has bothered to even file missing persons reports for those folks yet; as nobody ever realized that they actually existed.

I think they actually lived in my hometown (believe that or not) and tried to speak to me one time while I was waiting for my dope connection to show up. I was far too irritable to talk to anyone, and so I pitched a quarter at each of them; and they looked at the things as if they weren't sure what they were good for.

I doubt their families would have anything to do with them either, and probably don't miss the two - they weren't interested in working, buying a big SUV or anything - and they outright refused to watch television even with their own parents.

I need to find their garments though - I need that fifty cents back. . .

If you do find the fifty cents Wesman, I want half of it.

There is No Scriptures too back it up though. Jesus will be coming back. It says So right in Revelation. There will be a second coming. Too fight and take His children Home with Him. What I mean by No scripture there is not a one Scripture. And there was an Adam and Eve it says So in Genesis. But it is inspiring though. (:

Hi christina. Thanks for reading. It might be true. But then maybe someone was just throwing some paper out of an airplane.

Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord..much better to enjoy the life He has for us while in this world rather than waiting til we meet him after we leave this earth.
