This web site is for Christians
who beleive in Jesus but refuse to join a church. These Christians
may well attend church each Sunday and even support some of
that church's activities and missions but they refuse to become a card carrying
member. Worshipping God with others of a like mind is a very
uplifting experience. It is the church's bureaucratic politics and constant
emphasis on money and getting bigger and building bigger structures
that is rejected by Spiritual Christians. Spiritual Christians
are about doing good one human being to one human being every
single day at every single opportunity.
The truth is that during his
ministry, Jesus did not say one positive thing about the Jewish
bureaucrats who were in time responsible for his crucifixion.
The truth is that there is no difference between the contemporary
Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu clergy regarding
their bureaucracies. There can be little doubt that Jesus
would have rejected them all as he rejected the elitist exclusionary
practices of the Jewish religous bureaucrats of his day.
The paradox is that it is these
bureaucrats who are responsible for bringing human beings
back to God. But after that mission is accomplished, those
same bureaucrats begin to brainwash their new members into
elitist exlcusionary money contributing supporters.
Jesus started no church. Jesus built
no buildings. Jesus accumulated no assets. Jesus had nothing
good to say about the Jewish religious bureaucrats of his
day. It was Paul who set up the
church. Without Paul the Christian movement would have probably
died out by the end of the first century because in order
to stop the Christian movement, the Jewish bureaucrats banned
all Christian Jews from the synagogs. Were it not for Paul's
mission to the gentiles, non Jews, we may have never heard
The mission of Jesus really
required three persons. John the Baptist who was the herald.
Jesus who lived an exemplary life of devotion to doing good
and bringing human beings back to God. And Paul who established
the Christian religion. John and Jesus accomplished their
mandates from God. It was Paul who failed. And Paul failed
because he had to use the tried and true ancient religious
templates, formulas and formats to establish and distinguish
Christianity from the other religions of his day. Paul set
up another religious bureaucracy of men: and coincidentally
he subordinated women which was contrary to the teachings
The time has come to look at
and distinguish what Jesus said about living as a loving,
forgiving human being, as opposed to what Paul said with regards
to establishing, belonging to and supporting a church. The
time has come to edit out some of what Paul had to say with
regards to women and others in order to create a more spiritual
I have written a book called "The Third Millennium Second Reformation of Christianity." See King of Kings Lord of Lords")
The greatest paradox of Christianity
in contemporary society are the men and women who have established
non denominational Billion Dollar Jesus Shows that are really
no more than personality cults.
The great paradox is that these men and women who lust after
power and money are making their fortunes talking about Jesus
who had nothing. None of these alleged "men and women of God"
can even fathom much yet live the life of Jesus. Show me one
of these personages who wears cheap clothing or drives an
economy car. These men and women worship the god of money and power.
Do these men and women do
any good? I can only speak with certainty in the area of them
doing good in the sense of making fortures. Yes, they do themselves
a lot of good. They certainly fill a need demanded by human
beings. But the message they propagate is only peripherally
the message of Jesus. The rest is the feel good New Age corruption
of what Jesus said, taught and did.
If you want to know what Jesus
advocated, read his words "red letter" words in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and you will know.
I have reorganized these gospels and the Gospel of Thomas to make it easier to see what
Jesus really said and did. All I have really done is removed
the repetitions in the gospels. I have changed virtually nothing
of the content and substance. See The
Third Millinneum Gospel of Jesus.
