* Jesus said to His disciples:
* Jesus answered the question:
That’s what He said (or taught). There’s clearly no point in misquoting Him; and I don’t have the wisdom, the knowledge or the understanding to make that up on my own.
So I’m not really doing a movie critique or review … but if I were … I would have to say the Crusaders in the movie “Kingdom of Heaven” (and in the real history of mankind - as the movie just a a fictionalized version of real events) PLAINLY had another agenda totally different from Jesus Christ! Still … I thought the movie was pretty good! I give it a B+ or 4 out of 5 stars.
**So who was it that said “My religion is love”? Wasn’t it one of Bob Marley’s sons?
This is a HUB written by a fellow freelance writer whose work I used to follow when I wrote for HUBPages.com. I am sharing the link. The title should be enough to arouse one’s curiosty to click the link and read more.
However, on the off chance that it isn’t, I’ll reiterate/summarize my comments that I left behind:
RE: The fall of humanity wasn’t blamed on Eve. (It’s in the Bible.)
RE: Monotheism is evolving backwards.
FIRST: Your HUB title is not contentious. As a HUB writer I know that most often if the title doesn’t grab the reader’s attention they probably won’t read the HUB.
SECOND: By “the Bible”, I assume you mean Old and New Testament scriptures. When something is based on something that means the “basis” is the foundation. Islam is not based on the Bible. Islam is based on the Koran. The Jewish faith is based on the Old Testament (one part of the Bible) and Christianity is based on THE BIBLE (Old and New Testaments).
THIRD: Inequality is not scriptural, i.e. non-biblical, not based on the Bible. Male/female. Black/White. Jew/Gentile. Slave/Free. God has no respect of persons. Everybody gets treated equally. The laws of God were never set up to institutionalize and systematize inequality. Just because humans have chosen to arrange institutions and systems and misapply scriptures to accommodate these inequalities doesn’t mean it was God’s idea.
God never withheld Himself, His love or His wisdom; because at one time WE (mankind) ALL KNEW THE ONE TRUE GOD. We turned away from God. If you want to call that “evolving backwards”? OK.
Yet and still He’s the same God TODAY that spoke to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. God didn’t screw up the world we live in. We did it to ourselves. God has provided a way for us to redeem ourselves. We can take it or leave it.
There’s scripture for everything I say. I’m not making any of this stuff up. It all comes from God’s word: THE BIBLE.
