Christ’s passion did nothing for you, for each man must mount the lynching tree which will merge his Dr. Jekyll personality on his one side, and Mr. Hyde personality on his other side, into the Balance of Central Harmony of one.
Once in a while you come up with gems. ;-)
not being snippy, I like it.
While I appreciate the underlying inspirational logic, examples like the Passion of Christ are abundant, each reminding us of the secular saying;
“A friend (when) in need is a friend indeed”. Witness the graves of the *Unknown Soldiers* who sacrificed their lives for a good cause in anonymity.
What you speak upon concerning people giving their lives to save an institutionalized system of hate and bigotry, is misplaced here, for what you have described is individual’s who have been Indoctrination in ignorance which shape their destinies subliminally. Christ did not die for anyone but Himself, not for the self-righteousness arrogance,of a human system, because He comprehended, unlike men such as you who believe their causes can be won, slogans can become an offense, and buttons of commitment are the forces which give strength and power to these beliefs. Yet, with such initiative, still find they are fallen victims of their own ego. Fallen victims to the fears, pains, loneliness and the suffering and struggles which burden their lives, keeping them exposed and naked in the presence of their own reprobate minds.
So, in all your appreciation and likes, as well as your attempt to equalize the death of flesh to a metaphor—- Vulnerable and alone, as you came into this world, you will stand in the final analysis before those whom believed they were better because of skin color, wealth or intellect. Vulnerable because when you looked back upon your ancestry you will see from their ancestors you were given a banner which has no meaning, and it their indoctrinating causes, slogans, and buttons of commitment you inherited without understanding. And so, like your ancestor’s you blinded to the truth that “our fathers have sinned, and are not, and we have borne their iniquities. Servants have ruled over us; there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand” (Lam. 5: 5,6), not even the Unknown Soldiers* who sacrificed their lives for a good cause in anonymity.
