From the Historical Jesus to the Cosmic Jesus Christ May Be Flawed

    Before a theology can go universal/cosmic, it needs to at least be successful at an ethnic level, then a national level. Jesus’ theology failed at the Jewish people level. They rejected him leaving him wanting to put his arms around them like a chicken does its chicks. Second, Jesus’ theology failed the nation of Israel. In less than 75 years, Jesus’ message brought a nation to ruin. It wasn’t able to take off the yoke of Rome peacefully and it wasn’t able to succeed against Rome during the Revolt. Jesus’ message did not create a Son of Man empire ruled from Jerusalem. The jump from local Jesus to cosmic Jesus is flawed.

    This surely has implications for the Trinity, then.

    God the Father
    God the Son
    God the Holy Spirit [The Comforter, often given a masculine pronoun]

    None of the three are cosmic.

    If there is life in the Solar System only on Earth, then there is no Father, Son, or Holy Spirit beyond Earth, and the Trinity is a local God / notion of God (an Earth-specific God), instead of Cosmic.

    You have two notions referencing the human family (Father and Son).

    Where is God the Creator?

    God the Father is not the Creator.

    Well, let's argue this point. The Hebrew Bible gives us God, but Jesus only applies the term father to God, to bring God closer to the believer. Jesus, really knew beyond the Father perspective of God, God was much more. The Milky Way was not created by a parent to Humankind. The Milky Way was not soley created for Earth.
