Loving All Christians – Why Christ and Jesus are Conflated|
We are sorry if we sometimes offend too many people who believe they are devout Christians by some of our own positions regarding the bible.
While there are many good purposes to which the bible may be applied, we may often take a position that one of the most significant purposes the bible is sometimes made to serve is in the ways the bible is often abused by people purporting to be Christians. The bible seems too often to be used as if it were a holy mace+10 with which to pound doctrine and compliance into people"s heads.
The bible is frequently used to end arguments among Christians, but this device often fails when Christians meet people of different faiths.
People of non-christian faiths lack the social conditioning required to uphold the bible in their hearts and minds as the highest authority on Earth, conditioning that is well pounded into the heads of too many people who believe themselves to be Christians.
We would say that Christ is not a person whom would-be Christians could easily manipulate as a leader in absentia, that it was safer and easier to conflate the life of a man who may have been known as Jesus with the Christ Spirit, the One Who Dwells In All, to confuse people subject to Christian doctrines and give Jesus, as their figure-head, Christ-like attributes.
It was far easier to put controversial words in the mouth of Jesus.
No church wants their leader saying (paraphrasing) "do not build temples"
Also, one of the prime social conditioning tools of some Abrahamic traditions and Christian churches, fear of hell, was denied by Christ speaking through Jesus in a "lost" epistle, an epistle the Catholic church deliberately left out when they convened to compile the new testament.
In the words of one of the apostles, Jesus said, speaking for Christ, as nearly as we can tell, (paraphrasing) "No person will be condemned to Hell for all eternity".
That"s definitely not something the church wants anyone to know.
Anyways, however much we may agree that there are parts of Christianity that don"t ring true to ourselves, we recognize that because the true strength of any religion is in its people, there remains valid spiritual life and growth in Christianity; whether we approve of all of it or not is less important than how we learn to embrace all Christians in our own hearts.
