DID JESUS DIE FOR OUR SINby Syvert Mytting on 03/06/19
I'm going to take on a big one here so please read it all and try to understand how complex some of our social programming is. I watched Beyond Neverland. The documentary on Michael Jackson's abuse of two boys. I compared their story to the one children are told about Jesus dying for their sin. I watched how the boys were groomed before they even knew Michael Jackson by the love and adoration poured onto MJ. This same event takes place in churches every day with regards to the Jesus crucifixion. They lied under oath because their commitment to Michael was greater than their commitment to truth. They endured hours being cross examined as children and young men never questioning their motives to sustain their illusion vs. truth. I woke up last night thinking about the crucifixion. Young children almost from birth are told, "Jesus died for your sins." The child is too young to use rational thinking and analyze how that could be true and how that would work or why God would kill himself to reconcile his children to himself. They don't think that this all loving God is acting in a way that no parent would act. They just accept. Generations of people have built their lives on this teaching that I would defend is a lie. The two young men in MJ's case could not reconcile his abuse because it destroyed the structure of their whole lives. I believe the world's culture is in exactly the same place. Then the child is told that this person, Jesus, that died for them loves them beyond measure and that they, the parents and congregation, love Jesus by the same measure. Imagine when the child begins to construct a new reality away from this belief of Jesus providing the ultimate sacrifice and God demanding the ultimate sacrifice, and tries to construct a reality based on truth and logic. This abuse, and I'm going to call it that, is one of the most accepted and destructive lies that has ever been perpetrated on mankind. It is the root of our civilization. The two most destructive stories ever told was the story of Adam and Eve and the story of the life of Jesus. Jesus by the age of thirty became "at one" with God. This was not a birth right but a position earned through the process of receiving God's love. A process open to every single human being on earth. God's love is not dependent on anything but a repentant heart desiring to receive God's love. This Divine Love begins to transmute the soul exactly as it did the soul of the man Jesus. We have been stuck in a lie for 2,000 years, creating untold death, destruction and pain. When we wake up and realize that teaching children about Jesus dying for their sin is abuse only then can we shed this dark pain of such a great lie. It would destroy the foundation of our lives.
