God Isn’t Dead, Only Religion

My latest insight appears to be key to reducing Christianity to rubble, that their claims to goodness, salvation, or even belief in Jesus depend on them not killing Jesus again, whereas it is certain they would. The Holy Spirit betrays them, so they won't “magically know” when He's near, and their priests make no efforts in this direction.

All Christian services then become, "This is the God we'd prefer to kill," i.e. not coming far enough out of their admitted state of sinfulness to cease from murdering the Creator (or future generations that He'd protect). Moses should have said, "Thou shalt not kill Me, when I appear."

The trouble is that despite arrogant claims to personal relationships with God, the Lord isn't "real" to any Christian. They may laugh about blue-skinned Krishna, that seems a bit cartoonish, but in fact their mental models for Jesus are the same. He's a myth, not a living Person.

Christianity is therefore a process of "subscribing to the myth," along channels the church has declared, driven by priests seeking power along lines parallel with the Pharisees. For the actual Jesus to show up ruins the myth, which they imagine to be justification for their greed.

It can be pushed farther. The Christians will swear they wouldn’t kill Jesus, but they will admit they would kill any person claiming to have been Jesus, without taking it seriously one moment or asking a single question. It proves they do not truly long to listen to the Lord, and do not really accept that the Creator can appear in a human body, i.e. that “Jesus is Lord.”

Jesus warned about this, saying, “As you do unto the least of these, so do you unto me,” knowing full well humans seeing His divine traits would presume Him to be of no importance. He also said there’d be weeping and gnashing of teeth, as those believing themselves saved are turned back. “Many will say in that day, ‘Lord, Lord.’” Two billion say it.
