Jesus!! What the Hell!?

28 02 2011

It seems like you can’t get anywhere on word press when it comes to christian Ideas. Even when you start of being nice, If you have a unique position on anything about faith, you get attacked by a pack of rabid dogs. mind you this only happens  when you speak the truth, and spread love and speak out against hate and lies as Jesus once did while on earth.

 one thing I hear over again, is how Jesus talked so much about hell. Well , not really . Now If you  sit there and count how many times the word hell  occurs in the gospels, while discounting the context in which the word is used, you would think so. You would also have to ignore the fact that the different gospels often repeat the same quotes, wich makes it the same speech, jus a different  gospel. Then if you  come up with your own magical way of interpreting things in  wich turns everything that Jesus talks about into a speech about hell. Jesus spoke more of how to treat each other, how to make earth a paradise and how to make it into the Kingdom of heaven. I even had some Jackass even say that ” Jesus talked about itamore times than heaven, and even made a lot of references to hell”. First of all that isn’t true even if you do all the things that I mentioned, and second, Making references to something is talking about it.

why do christians spend so much time on how to stay out of hell, and to little time on how to get into the kingdom of  heaven. If you truly grasp the teachings of christ, you would realize that staying out of hell doesn’t give you an automatic ticket to heaven. There is a place called  Sheol by the Hebrews, that is where souls that don’t belong in the other  2 places go. A lot of So called christians, are so judgmental (about everyone but themselves). If you point out to these people that being Judgmental, is against the teachings of jesus. and then repeat what Jesus said on the subject, they find away to turn it around on you. I always get “you Just pick and choose what you want from the bible” when they obviously do the same thing and more frequently. I my self do pick and choose from the bible. you can do that since the bible is many books and Just a select few of a much larger  body of writings, which were rejected by the Catholic church. It was the Church that decided which books to put in the bible. Even if this wasnt the case I would pick and choose, there are some really evil teachings in the Bible. the gospels are pretty much all I pay attention to in the Bible cannon. I refuse to follow parts of the old testament where it calls to destroy all non believers. That is evil. You have to have an analytical mind when it comes to religious doctrine. If you don’t separate the good from the bad,well, you get the current state of the world.





Mass Hysteria In America :Manufacturing an Enemy

23 08 2010

In the history of the United states there Has always been a group of people labeled as the enemy, in both peacetime and in war. The government has always manufactured fear and hatred towards a praticular group of people in orderto heard its citizens into accepting thier political agenda. First it was the Injuns, then it was the limeys, then it was the blacks, then the Jews, then the Japs and the Krauts, then it was the comunists, Now it’s Muslims Mexicans and Liberals. There has always been some kind of propaganda that labled some group as a menace in order to keep the people of america divided. A people divided is easy to control, a united people is a threat to that control. This has Been the approach of the Rich elite since the days of the colonies. Racial hatred was manufactured to divide poor whites Indians and free blacks( yees in colonial America there were free blacks) to eliminate the threat that they might unite against The rich, tyrranical land owners,and over throw them. This  conditioning of dividing hate has continued throughout the history of the nation. Right now that manufactured hate has returned. Now with  a powerful news media, that is controled by the government(Mainly the right) thas made theis process simple. Not only is this  Machinery of  Hysteria Useful for dividing the people, It is also very Useful as a smoke screen to divert the attention from Important topics, praticulary the two unjust wars that Our nation is involved in. Currently this weapon has been deployed towards Illegal Imigrants and Muslims. The controversy of the Arizona Imigration Law was used as a soke screen to cover over the Issue of the wikileaks realease of war documents of the Iraq and Afgahnistan wars. The latest incident of mass hysteria is the false controversy over the so called “Ground zero Mosque”, wich is neither a mosque or on ground zero. as well as protests against mosques being built in other parts of the country. Labeling Muslims as the enemy has two advantages. One, It will help to destroy the Value of the constitution. Two, It will take the focus away from the wars, and the Unconstitutional politics of Washington. Giving into hatred is giving into the true enemy, The rogue politicians that have been controlling this country before it was a country. America, it is time to take the green pill





Creation, Adam And Eve, And the Non-Existent Witness.

23 07 2010

You hear so many People who say that Every thing in the bible is true.I believe some of it is true, but somethings are imposible to Know if they were True. There is a problem with the story of creation and the Adam eve story. The problem is the presence of the non-existent witness. Te non-existenet witness means that no one was there to witness it. Who really Knows how the Universe was created? The answer, No one. The story of Adam has the same Problem, there was no one to witness it, so how could it have happened. Instead of seing these storiews as what they are, Jewish folklore that atempts to explain the Unexpainable, It as seen as the complete truth. Later on, in Exodus, the Non-existant witness shows up  Again when Moses goes up the Mountain. Every oner Knows for sure that Moses recieved the 10 comandments from god, Even though he went alone. He stayed there for 4 days, long enought to cave words in to the tablets, but we Know It was written by the hand of god. Couldn’t it Just be that Moses was a Liar.

I wont just single out the Bible. The Non-existent witnes also  apears in the big bang theory. We don’t Know, because no one was there. there are othere things wrong with the theory, but lets not go into that right now. The non-existen witness was also present in evolution. Its an interesting theory, but still there is no way of Knowing. There are so many things that are taken as fact, that there is no way of Knowing if it is true or false. Even science is more faith than fact.  But what is a fact is that the Non-existent witnes, does not exist . If no one was there, you can not prove that what happened is the truth. Instead of just accepting something just because we have been taught something takes away our free will and Our power to reason. Any acount about something inwhich happend before there was any one to witness it, cannot possible be factual.





Christians could learn alot from the Dahli lama

8 07 2010

The Dahli lama is one of the wisest, and compassionite people one the face of the earth. I wish I could have a speck of the compassion and forgiveness that he has. His land was invaded by China. They slaughtered his people, out lawed his religion. He was forced to leave home, for fear of being Killed. Still he has no hatred towards China, and forgives the Chineese. Christians could learn alot from this man, Christians claim to be loving, and forgiving. Yet alot of christians are not even capable of forgiving people who have a different religion. Uncapable of loving any one who doesnt conform to thier praticular theology. Recently, a so called christian left very rude comments, which turned into a big debate.All because an article I wrote about a certain topic of religion that he didn,t agree with. He even called me a heretic.Where is the love and forgiveness in that. Just because my Christian beliefs didnt fit within the linesof mainstream Dogma Bullshit. If I was muslim, or hindu, god knows what he would of labled me as. I do not judge him, but he shouuldnt judge me. The dahli lama would neverr act as such, and he’s not even Christian , he’s budhist. The dahli lama is a man who does god’s work. I dont believe that he will suffer for all eternity because he doesnt believe that Jesus died for our sins. But alot of christians, would condemn him for the terrible crime of not being Christian. Alot of Christians won’t even talk to nonchristians unless they think they could convert them. The dahli lama is tolerant of all religions, yet good loving christians won’t. Its pretty sad when a Budhist is more christ like , than people who claim to be followers of jesus. A word of advise to the Christians out there, Be More like this budhist monk.





Is the god of Jesus the god of the old testament?

28 06 2010

The purpose of this article is not to offend anyone. But, if it does, I really don’t care. I am sure lots of christians out there will probablly be praying for my soul. Don’t, pray for your own.               

Well, here goes.

Is the god of Jesus the god of the old testament? My answer is no. The god that Jesus speaks of is a loving, compassionate god. A father who loves all his children. A god of peace. The god of the old testament is nothing like this. This is a god that punishes mankind for eternity for some thing the first man and woman did. Their crime was disobeying god and gaining. A god that wanted us to remain ignorant. Jesus on the other hand said “seek the truth, and it will set you free”. the god of the old testament tied to wipe out humanity with a flood. this god tells his people to go into villages and kill every man woman and child. Where is the Love in that? what Kind of god tells his people to commit such atrocities. That’s another thing, why would a kind  and loving god favor one race over all others? This is a rascist god.

God tells Abraham to murder his own son, then when he was about to do it , god pretty much says, I was just kidding, but now I know that you  are obiedient. this is a sadistic god.   in the old testament, when it talks about how the  Pharoh fed the hebrew children to the crocidiles, every one says how evil it was. but when god curses Egypt, and kills evvery first born son. it’s alright. So, it is bad if we do it, but it is ok if god does it. The god of jesus would never be like this.

So, Is the god of Jesus the god of the old testement? No.

I rest my case.





The Berlin Wall of Theology

26 06 2010

You may be baffled at the title of this article. I will explain. every one knows about the berlin wall. it was a wall that divided what was essentialy one people, and turned them into enemies. Religion also divides one people and divides them, and turns them against each other. Here I used the turn theology. This is because not only do the major religions separate us, but also different theologies within those religions. This is because of what I call the “I am right and you are wrong ” syndrome. Christians can’t get along with other christians, Muslims can’t get along with other muslims, hindu can’t get along with other Hindus. If we can’t get along with people with the same basic religious beliefs as us, How can we get along with people with different core beliefs?

Take christianity for example. If you put a bunch of preachers from different denominations together in the same room together, and have them discuss what it means to be a christian there would be a heated argument that would erupt into name calling, and possibly fist fights. You would essentially have christians acting very unChristian like. So of course  they wouldnt get along with Hindus, Muslims or even Budhists for that matter. We let our preconceptions get in the way of our spirital growth, and in the way of building a global comunity (or al local one). We are so busy pointing out the differences in our beliefs ,  that we failt to see the similarities. Instead of seeking peace like our spiritual teachers, we march off to war. Will the crusades ever end, or ar we all doomed.

mister minister, tear down this wall.

peace to you all.

sincerely,

Christopher Jay Thompson
