[quote:Anonymous Coward 99803:MV8yNjY0MTBfNDY5OTUxN18zMTAyRTQ0Qw==] Hey Naturyl! Good stuff. :Goofy Thum: I think Jesus and Ramana Maharshi would of been good friends. I think the teachings of Jesus were non-dualistic, nothing but peace, love, and harmony. Of course this is apparent if you read the new testament in Aramaic. It has a completely different feel to it. People seem to forget that Jesus didn't speak fluent English from a western perspective. Here is something for those to think about that quote scripture in English word for word: Old Hebrew words tend to run into each other and are not divided like English. There is also a custom of leaving out vowels. A slight change will alter the significance of any sentence. There were 47 translators of the King James version of the Bible. Only 3 of these were Hebrew scholars. 2 of them died before Psalms was translated. Also, any translation that disrupted current belief was discarded. It goes on and on. So, I'm not even a Christian (well, in the widely-accepted meaning of the word), but I have taken the time to read the Bible in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. So from my perspective quoting scripture in English is absurd. [/quote]
Kind of embarrassing for the modern right-wing church. I guess that's why they ignore most of what Jesus actually taught and focus mainly on his sacrifice and death.
"Passion of the Christ," anyone? Right-wingers loved it, because deep down, they enjoy seeing a peace-loving leftist who championed the poor sacrificed for the sake of the audience. The more torture, the better - it's what they'd secretly (or openly) like to do to all progressives.
Christianity is a death cult. It's all about the brutal killing of a wise and compassionate man for the sake of buying unwise and uncompassionate people a free ticket to "everlasting paradise."
Christianity? No thanks. Jesus wouldn't approve.
