    I'll post here, how's that? Just a bit though.

    The book was written by and for a rather primitive society and appealed to them in ways they understood. Looking at it analytically, It became apparent to me some time ago that god has been severely mis-cast as having the worst aspects of all too human emotional machinations.

    I feel Christ's death is a huge stop sign, a little like poppies on remembrance day - lest we forget what we (humanity) are appallingly capable of. Sadly, many christians do forget. Christian history subsequent to the crucifixion is peppered with the persecution of others, crucifixions of a different sort.
    Christ's death, I believe, triggered a massive collective conscience, still evident to this day, but regrettably quashed or ignored by being buried by too many under truck-loads of righteousness.

    Sorry, I didn't get it...Did you mean that Christians are not at all following what they are supposed to follow & instead lost their true path & living falsehood?
    am I right?

    No. Those terms are too condemning. icon_wink.gif
    I think many christians are following blindly instead of looking at their faith with a little objectivity and historical analysis and historical context.

    Totally saw someone with ash on their forehead, and totally thought that is the most unfortunate spot to have a birthmark.

    Jesus died on Good Friday. After he died his body was placed in a cave and a large stone was rolled over the entrance to the cave. On the third day the large stone will be rolled aside and Jesus will come out of the cave. If he sees his shadow there will be six more weeks of winter.

    I am praying that he doesn't see his shadow because I sure can't handle six more weeks of fuckin winter!

    Isn't it seen in other religions too?
    Many people often look at their religions in the way they wanted it to be, how they imagine it to be like! and ignores what their religion really tries to teach them.

    In many cases though, religion is teaching ways of looking at what happened back then without using the lens of who we are now.

    ..really I think they miss what's really important, a little like this:

    ..which is all about finding oneself in the ability to forgive, from those that offend us and those who we offended and became angry with us.. Therein is this amazing grace spoken of, and attainable as well without religion, which is how powerful it is.



    In particular this: "When we've been there ten thousand years
    Bright shining as the sun,
    We've no less days to sing God's praise
    Then when we first begun."

    As we progress, I think so should we also start to understand the Dick and Jane limitations of old documents.
