    Jesus the ritual sacrifice

    For a little more background on this topic {breadth often helps with depth} consider the following ... Chthonic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Tell me, bhaktajan, are Vaishnavas, or other Hindus, the only ones who are able to correctly discern "real Gurus?"

    Jesus the ritual sacrifice

    Jesus did not die FOR anyone's sins, except grammatically. He died, iow, because of the Sanhedrin, the disbelievers, and thanks to those who persecuted him, struggling *AGAINST* what He came to share. They did this because they were driven on by the Adversary, even as many are today, often...

    A-Z, the way ignore works is: I stop reading what you post, even if one click of the mouse can fix that. I don't want to fix that. Goodbye.

    HA HA HA HA HA Look at the poor little blind man, still taking shots at Theosophy. You CRUCIFIED your Lord already, Thomas. STOP beating a dead horse. STOP projecting your theology's woeful inadequacies and con-job-patch-up-work onto the only system YOU have ever seen which answers all the...

    Warning: You are all headed for increased, if not infinite frustration ... by following this thread, reading others with the current cadre of posters, etc. Word to the Wise: Abandon before you wish you had done so days, hours or even moments earlier! ;)

    God or G-d

    Thomas, you are HOPELESS, in more ways than I count, given all my digits, and all the hairs on my head. Dialogue with you is far less productive than trying to coax that dike of yours not to ignore your futile efforts to plug the five new holes that burst open for each ONE that your theology...

    God or G-d

    Perhaps we were `built' by one wave of life, and entities, acting under the instruction and guidance of yet a higher Order of Creative, Loving and adequately *emPowered* beings. I would argue that these latter, as well as the former, themselves come in several `classes' ... although admittedly...

    God or G-d

    Thomas, the reason it is easy for me to make sense of this issue is perhaps itself, key to the conundrum's answer. It is, at heart, a matter of `Guess who?' once we begin to ask the familiar questions: Who am I? Who are you? Who is God? Who was/is Christ/Jesus? Who are the Children or...

    God or G-d

    Although I certainly agree with you, I am of the mind that the *original* Zoroaster lived 10s of thousands of years ago, rather than later namesakes & individuals using honorifics, who were more recent. Further, I have enough reason to believe tentatively that it was Shakyamuni Buddha, Siddharta...

    God or G-d

    And yet, the problem here is not with the way God was conceived in antiquity ... or at least, not in this particular case. Nor was the difficulty present for the Mayans, who also understand the centrality and importance of the Sun ~ and with *what it veils*. See the Gayatri ~ which is among the...

    Mind games entertain ... play them all day, if you will. Time to heat the soup.

    God or G-d

    Lol, the first conceptions of GOD may have occurred within OUR Humanity about 18 million years ago {yes, I have an exact year, if it must be fetched} ~ yet for many, many millions of years there were DEVA lives here, active upon this planet ... what the Christian calls `Angels' of a certain...

    Truth

    We already are WHAT? You are not an arhat. Don't delude or deceive yourself. Suggest to me, AZ. Just SUGGEST to me ... that you're an arhat, and you're outta there. An ignore list exists precisely for such cases of delusion. You don't really THINK that you are arhat, now do you? :o I KNOW I...

    Who was the Mother of Jesus?

    Mary was the Mother of Jesus, the latter being conceived and born in pretty much the same way *you* were. A man impregnated a woman, and the latter gave birth. Amazing how difficult a concept this is for people who otherwise can make their letters and even occasionally preform super-amazing sums...
