Jesus was too smart for us!

Updated on June 2, 2012

Really! Are we that Blind

Why are Christians still blind to see that they are doing everything that Jesus of Nazareth ask them not to do...

Shocking, I know but so true. Okay, Jesus himself was brilliant; he did not document anything knowing that if he did than people would worship him as an idol and use his text as a way to profit and control (religion). He acted his believes by interacting with others so people would be moved by his actions and presence that they would see and feel the love. Which can not be given through text but only the energy of each other. He was showing us that being told how to be good and thinking your doing good or telling others to do so is selfish. That acting out your love and true good needs no explanation or documentation. The love will be passed on by another act and this is the only way a man can see what good is. You can't profit or gain control over people if you use only your acts of kindness regardless of who the receiver may be.

For some reason the people who documented the New Testament are not all clear who the writers are. Not clear when they were written. Why the Bible was created and why are there people of power in the name of Jesus? Last time I checked Jesus used his own life to give us the clearest picture of how we should be as humans and showing us that religion is what crucified him. However, stupidity ruled judgment and the followers took into their own hands to fight back and created a power structure leading to world control based all on a false use of the man who died for our sins. Who clearly did not die for us to sin for him. We missed the boat on that one.

Why do they talk so much about themselves and their relation to god? Jesus first acted and then only gave reasoning to the ones in shock of his fearless actions for the good of humans. Think about it. Humans are selfish and vindictive now and far as I know even more so back then. Were is the credibility and why are they put on the same level as Jesus? Why is Jesus so little mentioned in the Bible and so associated with the book as if he wrote the thing. Why would we not practice faith the way he did?

I believe in Jesus and his message. That is all, me believing this makes me not a Christian or any other member of religion. I am but that of a single soul granted from the divine.

Have you thought about the message from Jesus of Nazareth ?

      Cruelkindness, thank you very much for this Hub. It puts into words much of what I feel, and it's the only fruitful way in which I can perceive that person, Jesus. I am not a christian; heaven (if there was such a place) forbid! Maybe I am just as much a dogmatic atheist as many christians are dogmatically christian. Either way, it's succumbing to the Ego which, as Eckhart Tolle has explained, is so clever at getting what it wants. God! I'm getting carried away again.

      Voronwe - Glad to have a fellow friend from afar with close interest.

      I have so many more opinion on this matter, If I went more into a open minded discussion on this subject insults would be flared based on assumptions on my intentions. From what I've experienced so far on hubpages.

      Anyway I thank you for your comment and stoked to visit you recommendations above.

      Well written and great points. Churchianity and Christianity is how one hubber "aguasilver" writes of the distinction. The Church system was organized shortly after Jesus' death; I guess many hadn't understood the original teachings and crafted their dogmas for democracy purposes and to, as you say, falsely use the image of Jesus to serve their intentions...like the Roman Church at that time.

      The New Testament was supposedly written so it could in a way, fulfill the Old Jewish prophecies and prove that Jesus was the Jewish Messiah; which now has many other varied concepts.

      I'm rambling on but it seems you have a lot to share on HubPages with this topic. You raise some good questions. I originally came to Hubpages for the religion forum but then, lost all my research and the painstakingly drafted hubs. I only recently discovered Maurice Nicoll's interesting work.

      To believe the true message of Jesus, you must first know the man. To know the man you must first be the Christ.

      Nice hub! You get a interesting and vote up from me! Very good information and points on the hypocrisy of many christians. I do find that it was a little difficult to naturally read your hub with some of the periods involved in the sentences. That could just be me though. Brave call on a religious topic. Keep up the good work!
