Now a lot of people like to talk about Christianity like they know what they’re talking about. I hear people talking about Jesus’s love for the world, who then apologize for the assholes who apparently “messed up” Jesus’ gospel and turned into something he never would have approved of. You hear it from soccer moms to gay priests, generally liberal, you yourself may have thought Jesus got a bad rap and try to justify all the war, crime and pestilence carried out in his name; that Jesus was basically a good guy. But I wonder, fictional character or real life man, what would Jesus think about the world he left behind 2000 years ago? Because his story has certainly left an impact on world society as a whole – that’s one thing we can all agree on. It’s almost baffling if you try to contemplate it all – of course people have been trying to understand religion since we invented it in the first place. It’s such a curious cycle, this fame monster.
But if I may be so bold as to officially suggest for consideration that Jesus willfully and deliberately created an evil religion. I submit for review exhibit “a”; Matthew 10:34.
“Do not think I came to bring peace upon the
earth; I came to put, not peace, but a sword.”
Apologists pretend Mt. 10:34 is out of context, but if you read the rest of the paragraph it is clear Jesus intends for people to follow him. And those who do not will be suffered upon IN his name BY his followers, here on earth.
Christianity says that by the power invested in it by itself it hereby declares you a sinner, so now you have a disease, you are the disease. And the only way to cure yourself of the disease is to become a brain-washed monkey in the name of Jesus and then drop dead. That’s it. That’s Christianity stripped down to the core.
Now if a person or organization did the same thing to your physical body, that is; poison your body and then gave you the promise of a cure only if you became their slave, they would be rightfully sent to jail. But because Christianity does that to your mind and soul, which is less tangible, they’re able to get away with it for 2000 years. Nice little racket, huh?
Having said that, I now propose for official consideration that an Anti-Christ would be earth’s salvation. Not just an atheist, or a Buddhist but an honest to God Anti-Chirst. Socking, isn’t it?
I officially propose that instead of following Men or Gods to create peace, we instead ignore those who would tell us how to do our own thing. Far from creating chaos, those in positions of (spiritual or material) authority, no longer in control of our daily welfare, for which they have no real vested interest in anyway (we’d actually be doing them a favor), would allow people to interact with each other in a more relaxed state; with slack, as it were.
Non-violent resistance seems like an appropriate measure to take; I say; quit your job, stop paying taxes, let the black market provide. Self-employment, trade, independent agriculture, whatever the job; someone will do it – even volunteer trash men… believe me, there are worse jobs. Case in point, I was watching Pat Robertson today talk about how to deal with Iran. It was… illuminating, to say the least. Hopefully the President doesn’t take such ironic actions against a country whose only crime was getting pissed off at us for interfering with their lives in the first place.
So yes, I believe this IS a Christian nation and the time IS at hand. And I propose a Church of the Anti-Christ. We do not suggest humanity is ‘perfect’ as we are, but this Church proposes Man holds the keys to our own salvation.
THE GAME OF YOU.
