The Christian Gospels describe two versions of Jesus; The first version is claimed by the deciples who lived with and knew Jesus. This version is of a Jesus who was a Torah Observant, a G-d Fearing Jew who was not claiming to be G-d. The second version was of a Jew who rejected the Law of the Torah, rejected Judaism and dehumanized Jews while promoting Roman authoritarianism. This second Jesus also claimed to be G-d, not just a Son of God and was invented by Paul of Tarsus who never knew Jesus except for his claims of visions. The Second Version is the one adopted by the Imperial Cult of Rome at the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D. and was done so by a vote that was concluded with tenuous logic and appeals to pagan mysticism and Roman politics.
The Jewish tradition is not one based on faith, doctrines or authoritarian control but on reason. Their religion is based on the texts and the meaning extracted from them is rhigorously argued among Jews. This means Jews are encouraged to think for themselves using agreed upon principles of logic. Jews have no doctrines, but instead teach reason and religion fused together.
When you were taught Algebra was it good enough to produce an answer, or did your teacher emphasis the process of finding the solution? The Jews emphasize the process, while Christians emphasize the answer. When you only care that your deciples recognize the answer that you are providing for them and insisting that they accept you are not just degrading the student and promoting stupidity, but proving yourself the platform based on the absolute authority of doctrine established by faith. Faith means that you turn your critical thinking skills off and completely accept any kind of stupidity presented to you.
The Christian faith by contrast is a religion not based on reason but on authoritarianism( they demand you accept their claims and degrade you by saying you are incapable of the insight to reach their conclusions~only they are qualified to reach these conclusions); It claims that people except for the Vatican are incapable of thinking for themselves and reaching the conclusions logically that the Vatican promotes. This translates into a religion based on faith, not on logic. In fact throughout most of Christian history it was a crime to demonstrate independent thought that was critical of the unilateral proclamations of the church…this got you tortured and killed! And even today questioning or contradicting Christian Dogma easily evokes rage out of the faithful. In fact the result is a church who’s patrons are just plain stupid by design hurling threats and insults on people who contradict their dogma. Christianity as taught and practiced is by definition Anti-Inellectualism and stupidity becomes a core Christian virtue; be a sheep, be a sheep, be a mindless useless stupid sheep!
When Jews read their texts it’s required that the interpretation is clear and consistent with facts. When the proofs of reality contradict the interpretation of the Tenak, it’s the interpretation of the text that has to be reassessed. In Christianity, when the facts contradict the dogma it’s claimed that reality is wrong and that the authority of the church is absolute and supreme…this is INSANITY! To my mind G-d if nothing else is not stupid, and because Christians insist on expressing stupidity in the name of G-d, then they are not promoting G-d or the interests of G-d.
Paul of Tarsus was the Apostle to the Gentiles. He created the Antisemitism of the Christian church because he could not prove any of his rediculous claims and this departure from reason was offensive to Jews. His was a Jesus myth where he maintained his authority because of his claim to visions which he could never prove. Judaism was a religion that depended upon reason while Christianity became a religion based on authoritarianism. It’s not a coincidence then that 90% of the Nobel Prizes in Math and Science every year are awarded to Jews is it? Pauls quest for authority was inhibited by Jews because his religion was opposed to Jewish principles and philosophy. And Paul answered this with threats and vile criticisms setting the foundation of 2000 years of Antisemitism.
The Roman Empire was an authoritarian Slaver State and when they changed their business model from a military one to a religious one at the Council of Nicaea, they of course adopted the authoritarian Christianity of Paul and this was augmented by vilification of Jews and advocating Roman Style Authoritarianism. This began the thousand years of slavery in Europe known as Feudalism based upon absolute power, authoritarianism and mind control(Jews did not believe in freedom without freedom of thought…only interested in behaviour while Christians hacked the thoughts by demanding stupidities called faith and doctrine).Feudalism remained until the Guttenberg Press made the Christian bible widely available and the Reformation somewhat loosened the constraints of the absolute authority of Rome. Under that system intellectual Jewish free thinkers were seditious.
The 35 % that support Trump do so in spite of all rational criticisms and claim he is working for the Evangelical G-d. This would mean that the Evangelist G-d is stupid, and not godlike at all unless G-d is a clown…facts being what they are, indeed!
