What Would Jesus Say?

Do you really think Jesus would want you worshiping him?
Do you think he died so you could build churches to him?

If you don't understand that Jesus was a radical you don't know Jesus.

Why do you need miracles to be good?

We seem to have a desperate need to have spiritual communion with supernatural entities. Prayer comforts us. It gives us hope.

But it does not work.

If it did, the world would be a much different place.
In fact it would resemble heaven.

Not thinking this is a winning strategy.
In fact it's time to throw the pre-historic god of the Semites, Aryans and Jihaddists in the same pile we dumped Zeus, Hercules and Athena.

Religion is an insult to human dignity.

With or without it, you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, it takes religion.

If Jesus had been killed twenty years ago, Catholic school children would be wearing little electric chairs around their necks instead of crosses.
