Reading between the lines…

At the very crux, right between the transition of the Roman state tolerated religion from Judaeo to Christianity…there was a momentary opportunity…a suggestion for people to abandon institutionalized, power lusting religion, altogether…the hint of the very beginning of the Nones…!

Now, two thousand years later…the populace is sufficiently educated and informed about the immorality of religion…to choose to become “Nones” for themselves…and they are…!

Jesus: Just love your neighbor as yourself…!  Exercise your humanity…!

But up stepped Jesus Follower persecutor and murderer, Roman Rabbi Paul: Poor naive Jesus…If the old religion has taught us anything, it is that religious nationalism requires strict controls. The power to punish indiscriminately. No, we need structure…! A multi-layered hierarchy…An elaborate institution… A means to create and control followers…To collect money from them…and build a church empire…! Something large enough to negotiate and collaborate with the evil Political Rulers of the day…to steal from the public purse…and get judges and civic leaders to look the other way, as we have our way…!  

Jesus: Religion is enshrined bigotry and hate.
The law of love will be written on the people’s hearts.

We should release people to do good works for those in need, not contain and frustrate the good works of individuals…

Roman Rabbi Paul:

Rules build empires. We need followers, because we need sheep to fleece…cannon fodder to fight “holy”/immoral wars…mindless robotons who will align themselves with the immoral…people who’s “righteousness” comes from belonging to a religious sect…and not from helping those in need…! The religious institution will pretend to help those in need, while buying golden goblets…and works of art…and massive religious buildings…and even religious cities…with the money collected…

Jesus: You are white-washed tombs…!

Roman Rabbi Paul:

Crucify him…again and again…and publicly…! And re-write his message of human love for others…into one of religious empire building…and sectarian bigotry…! And kill his followers and his message…Look, he wrote nothing down, so we will write his message down for him…intertwined with our message of chaos and conquest…!  And we’ll pretend our followers are his followers…by calling them after him…to entrap and hide behind and among those that desire to do good…those naive like him…while we carry out our agenda of self-aggrandizement…!

But after two millennia…the people finally stood up…and said…enough is enough…and took away political control from the immoral religious empire…!

Slip Sliding Away…

As outlined in
https://confrontingbabble-on.tumblr.com/post/181219363985/there-is-a-good-reason-why-the-nt-god-was-written …a truly biblical life is unattainable…

The best you can hope for…is
to attain the level of “Cherry-Picking Hypocrite”…which a religious believer
achieves on day one…!

From there, all religious “progress”…is to sink lower…!

By sufficiently suffocating common morality and human decency…one can achieve the demerit badges of…”Lame Pathetic Excuser”…”Blinder of the Sighted”…”Confounder of the Reasonable”…“Fleecer of the Gullible”…

”Pretentious Pontificator”…or the ultimate…”Concealer of the Molesters”…

…or as the NT god put it…

Woe to you, teachers of the law…you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness…

“You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?… how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate…“ Jesus, bible god, Matthew 23:27-39

There is a good reason why the NT god was writ…

There is a good reason why the NT god was written to be an unemployed, unmarried, homeless, destitute, uneducated, unqualified, responsibility-free 30-something year old male martyr…

Because it is impossible to follow his teachings…and…have a wife and family…hold down a job…take out a home loan…fulfill contractual responsibilities…maintain assets…and live a long
full

life…to a peaceful retirement…and a natural, decrepit death…!

Or, in other words…what the average religious believer expects to experience…!

The only people advocating biblical rules as laws…are either ignoring…or are ignorant of…the vast majority of them…!

To cultivate the good, To abandon evil,  To pu…

To cultivate the good,
To abandon evil, 
To purify one’s heart, 
This is the teaching of the Buddhas.

It is deplorable that you have told people to …

It is deplorable that you have told people to abandon themselves to their hearts’ desires and to do anything they want. One must seek to cast off the evil of this world and to cease doing wretched deeds; this is what it means to reject the world and to live the Nembutsu.
