Jesus denied any unique lofty position for himself

    Jesus denied any unique and lofty position for himself but taught his disciples that they could perform the same miracles as he had performed and they could attain the same status that Jesus has reached.

      Which would seem to suggest, that he made no claims to be God, as later Christians came to believe and that he was the son of God in the same sense as all of us may be described as the children of God.

      Most of the gurus of the past never even wanted people to follow them. They just wanted to share a simple truth and our egos latched on. The entire teaching became an obangle and a status symbol.

        I meant "here we go again" as in there is probably going to be a very heated debate following, and there are already lots of those

          I would hope it would be a dsicussion and not a flexing of spiritual muscle.

            I would hope so too. In my opinion, however, it seemed a little redundant for another thread to be posted which in essence is attempting to discuss the things many, many other threads are already discussing.

              It's history repeating itselsf. It is the most mundane that is repeated constantly.

                  Jesus was simply a human being; he was neither a god or son of god; he created nothing; everything remained the same as before.
