what are your guys thoughts on Jesus Christ if you believe I wanna why. If you don’t believe I wanna know why. If you think this is stupid I still wanna know why.
jesus christ is the only son of our lord. he died for us to save us from our sins. he is my brother. he is a good example on how we should live our life. selfless.
I believe in Jesus Christ as a historical figure that had a way of life that inspired alot of people to follow it, what eventually lead to the creation of christianity.
But I don’t believe in him as a religious figure (or in the context of christianity), because I think that the only real reason for christianity (not religion!) is to give priests and the leaders of the church the power to rule over humanity and put up laws that mostly only benefit themselves.
This might not be true for every priest that ever was, but if you take a look at the history of the world you will see, that christianity is to be blamed for a lot of bad things that happened to us. To state it according to your question, christianity used Jesus Christ for its own purposes to rule over the people on earth, by making him into something that he not really is.
He was an enlightened spiritual teacher who touched a lot of people back in the day. Enough so that a lot of people thought to record his words. But his message has gotten hijacked throughout the years, his stories and parables morphing as they were passed on, and he was somehow transformed into a deity by people who didn’t understand the difference between an experiential meditative spirituality and an old school white-man with a beard on a throne in heaven kind of religious dogma. I have no proof of this–but I suspect he was a HEthen type who journeyed down the silk road into India and spent time learning buddhism and honing his meditation skills. Eventually returning back to the middle east as an enlightened blissed out radiant light and love kind of person who wanted to spread the good word of the beauty and love we all contain inside and a method for tapping into it. He was revered for his radiance and peaceful message by many and viewed as a threat by the authorities for his ability to influence people. Read the gnostic gospels and get more of a sense of what Jesus was teaching. His message was beautiful. He was an enlightened dude. Peace to all.
I think you have to read the Bible for yourself and make your own decisions on this. Don’t believe what anyone tells you or what any religion tells you. They all have an agenda, and they all distort the truth of what the Bible actually says.
I believe he existed, nothing more. There is no solid evidence to support any of his miracles, and the only testament to those miracles is a book that claims to be the word of God, which I cannot see that being the case due to all of the loopholes. If it was written by God, it would be perfect, it would be kind, and it would help us all work together to get to heaven. Instead, it has caused strife, it has caused war and it has caused divisions among us that prevent us from loving each other.
I do not necessarily believe that he did walk on water or turn water into wine. He might have, but one thing he did that we can take a lesson from is his words. For the most part, Jesus said some pretty profound things. If we would all listen to what the so-called son of God said instead of all of the other tid-bits that are thrown in there (such as the verses that are so-often pointed to in order to make people hate gays or foreigners), the world would be a better place.
Prophet, son, or God himself, he had an interesting take on the world.
Keep in mind, Jesus was no more a Christian than Buddha was a Buddhist, or Mohammad was a Muslim. They preached about compassion and love.
Articulating empirically, I have come to a personal, conclusive reasoning that believing in a deity (a metaphysical presence of an omnipotent being) to be false. In fact, I find it awfully cognitively dissonant of us as individuals to injustly attribute the unseen to something without any evidence or scientific literacy instead of attempting to figure out what our ecological regression leads to.
