while jesus and the apostles were at the ‘last supper’ ,
so too would have been his enemies dining ; the death of jesus is presented as being almost a matter of course , we are not alerted enough about the real evil which would have opposed him ; the element of pure malevolence is not given enough credence in history !
it is worthwhile to trace the origins of christianity ; i found it essential in the face of a lifetime of patronising dogma and superficial hypocrisy . you’ll find that jesus was educated by the essene monks by the dead sea whose ideas were being developed in alexandria , egypt since 100 yrs previous to that ; to have an historical perspective is to be closer to the reality of things – the story of jesus has always remained separate from history .
the irony would have been that it was judas et al who would have been getting conspired against and that history was later written as we now know it ; jesus , being the son of god is alive and well and living somewhere in the middle east ! that would have been a more favourable outcome , every raven has two heads !
i’m not an expert on anything , but i really did feel a need to arm myself against door to door christians
always demanding that i join their church ! i just don’t talk to strangers any more , thankfully the law is on my side on that one . nowadays , with the reality of myriad bogus callers , an advantage is that you can ‘just say no’ to religious nuts also ! the mormons preceded these more suspicious types , we used to see them walking about paisley all the time when we were young in their cutomary long black coats – they are not remembered as having ever bothered anyone at all . there’s been a mormon church in the scheme i grew up in since as long as i remember .
it is interesting to note that st valentine was one of the main figures in shaping what became christianity ; the central division at the time was between gnostics and orthodox , this led to the creation of two separate churches . christianity was introduced to ethiopia 250 yrs before europe .
it still remains a problem to me that the most evil of our kind are for the most part incoherent and illiterate , so how did they manage to write history then ?
