This is My Commandment

Jesus said to him, “’You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all you soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment.

First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck that is in your brother’s eye.” -Luke 6:41

But Jesus said to them, "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!

Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel! Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence.-Matthew 23:23-25

“And when they had come to Capernaum, those who received the temple tax came to Peter and said, “Does your Teacher not pay the temple tax?” He said, “Yes.” And when he had come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth take customs or taxes, from their own sons or from strangers?” Peter said to Him, “From strangers.” Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are free.

Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgiven, and you will be forgiven.” -Luke 6:34

For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.” -Matthew 13:12,13

“’Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.

And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.” -Matthew 10:14

      Jesus is a load of crap. He never existed. So, we are in the age of pisces and nearing the end. The next age is Aquarius. Who will take the place of Jesus? Before the age of picses it was someone else then Jesus took "power". Who's next? Religion is just a large scale "distraction"

      I wouldn't call Jesus a "load of crap" personally.

      While the historical record is blurry - the teachings maintain usefulness, for us to consume and debate.

      And yes, the age of aquarius comes after pisces in the procession of the equinoxes.

      In the meantime, my intent is not to offend believers, but to generate conversation...
