  7. AH — you don’t speak for me . you have no idea how i think about Gandhi . You put words in my mouth and you seek to interpret my own inner experiences too. is this not exalting yourself ? of course . why ? because you say that the Christ story is a myth . but of course you have no evidence that it is a myth . ..just a lot of hot air . where is the evidence? all you have are swiss cheese arguments and complaints about the behavior of others , when in reality you should take an examination of your own life . ”the unexamined life is not worth even living ” SOCRATES.

    complaining about Christ and Christians is a luxury you have now while there is breath in your body . enjoy it now my friend . one day you will not have breath . then that luxury will be over. the clock really does stop . finito . the end . you will not be able to make any judgements then . in fact the tables will be turned .

  9. Thanks, Ah Bartleby.

    Yes, the rightwing political establishment has truly flipped the words of Christ, however, I’m not sure they are the majority of Christians.

    My advice is to turn off the TV. Don’t be so influenced my mainstream/corporate media. Sensationalism sells, so that’s what you are going to get from the media.

    There is another Christianity and it has real followers of Jesus, however, it doesn’t make the nightly news or newsstands.

    Hiding the Good News is against Christ’s words, “go and spread the gospel”. see

  10. Shabbat Shalom, Ah Bartleby. Hope you’ve been well.

    I can’t but wonder why you seem to be obsessed with attacking Christianity? You didn’t say anything that you haven’t said before.

    You also seem so sure of yourself. “Fake resurrection,” “myth”, attacking the hypocrites and followers, why not read it for yourself? It would take an open mind, yes, but more importantly an open heart.

    It is the Good News!

    While some so-called Christians do hypocritical things like you mentioned, what do you say about the Christians who do feed the poor? Every day. In countless cities all over the world, they feed the hungry.

    When you focus on the hypocrites, you miss the entire message. God loves YOU!

    I updated this post yesterday and added a video. Please watch it all the way through.
