Worst Kind of Misinformation
From an unbiased historical perspective and, unlike Christianity in all of its twisted and insidious incarnations has grossly misrepresented Jesus for centuries, it is fair to say that he is neither the founder of Christianity or any other religion. Rather, it is far more accurate to conclude Jesus is the founder of human and civil rights and free quality public education for the masses.
And Jesus is by far the most misunderstood and misrepresented individual in human history. He far more fairly belongs in the categories “human behavior” and “morality and ethics” than “religion”, although there is no single category accurately representing him, as his teachings and actions span virtually every category ever invented.
The words and deeds of Jesus are foundational focused on the axiom that we should treat other people the way we want them to treat us (Matthew 7:12, Luke 6:31). For this reason, we will not kill, we will not steal, we will not falsely accuse and, if there is anything else that matters in securing love, freedom, peace, equality and justice on earth, it is summed up in this, that we should love our neighbor as our self.
As an example of how poorly translated most bibles are today, the now famous John 3:16–17 is more accurately translated as: “For God so loved the people that he gave his only conceived son, that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the people, but that the people through him, might be saved.” Changing the poorly translated vague and impersonal “world” to “the people” (Greek; sea of humanity) significantly underscores the true intention.
Note how much more “people-centered” this more accurate translation is, which is consistent with Jesus being portrayed as champion and friend of the common people throughout the New Testament narrative. The word translated as “church” in modern bibles, does not at all refer to either a religion or a religious organization or edifice.
The book of Acts for example, clearly states that God “does not live in temples made with hands.” Note how the Bible does not refer to a “little man in the sky” in reference to God, as many modern atheists are found of misrepresenting. Rather, according to the Bible, the heavens (plural) and what lies beyond cannot contain God and, in God we “live and move and have our being.”
Because modern science is aware that trillions of microbes are living within every human being and, it is believed there are far more viruses than any other form of life on earth, it is not at all hard to accept that God is everywhere and we live within God. Can a virus inhabiting a microbe living within the intestines of a human being, accurately say there is no human being, probably no human being or might be no human being upon which it depends for its very survival?
And likewise, can human beings say with any honesty at all that there is no God, probably no God or might be no God? How would they know, what evidence do they have and, why should common average people either believe them or pay taxes to have our children ‘educated’ by purveyors of such gross superstition?
What evidence do they have that energy, heat, motion, light, gazillions zillions trillions of parts within parts, life, intelligence, the highly complex dual language and functionality of DNA or even something as rudimentary as human mathematics, can magically exist without an Eternal Primary Cause and Supreme Intelligence behind the grand design universal reality?
