I disagree about the charismatic part. I think it's likely that he was one of the top 100 charismatic people of his time period, if he existed.
Tom Hanks is easily more charismatic than the character of Jesus. That's just the first one that popped into my head. If Tom Hanks had magical powers, Jesus could not compete. I'm sure there are and have been tens of thousands of actual people more charismatic than any person The Jesus! myth was based on.
I don't value charisma that much anyway. Think Hitler.
The Jesus! myth does not impress me, so any person or persons it might be based on would impress me less, as myths and legends are always embellished.
Thanks to Scar for "The Jesus!" formatting. I like it.
Good post. I don't buy into "charisma adoration", either.

I think it works in a tribal or group setting, such as a small town or community. The difference being is in that setting, the people >know< that person, as well as that charismatic person making sense, being compelling etc...

Even in those settings legends grow and the personna of the individual becomes magnified.

(use the Jesus! however you see fit)

I tend to agree. But, the 'charisma' has long out lived the man.
I doubt anyone will even know who most of the current "charismatics" alive today are 2000 years from now.
I've got a feeling that at the time, had Constantine and the Roman Empire decided Bobcat Goldthwait was to be the official central icon of the official religion and things progressed as they did, I'd be typing the Bobcat! instead of the Jesus!

Excellent point.
Interestingly the Churches have flip-flopped their position on suicide several times over the centuries. Actually, many believers were and are sending themselves to Heaven 'ASAP'.
In Australia, teenage suicide is high; so I googled and came up with this....

*** Suicide rates among middle-aged Americans have risen sharply in the past decade, prompting concern that a generation of baby boomers who have faced years of economic worry and easy access to prescription painkillers may be particularly vulnerable to self-inflicted harm.

More people now die of suicide than in car accidents, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which published the findings in Fridayís issue of its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. In 2010 there were 33,687 deaths from motor vehicle crashes and 38,364 suicides.

Suicide has typically been viewed as a problem of teenagers and the elderly, and the surge in suicide rates among middle-aged Americans is surprising.****

Are these increases believers G? Most people I know who have Faith in GOD enjoy life and enjoy helping others, and I have only known a couple of people who have ended their own lives, and they were not believers and struggling with issues. One was alcohol addiction in a younger man and the other was an older mand, and due to his new wife beating his children that he had to his previous wife (who had died). He was my Dad's mate, and his children were my friends, and it was horrid to see them with massive bruises on their legs that were bright red due to the cold and they were only dressed in too small summer clothes.

He gassed himself under the laundry water heater Christmas morning. The children were split up and sent to 3 different families, and I only ever saw 1 of them again, and have now lost touch completely.

Sad to think of so many people who cannot see the world as it should be seen ~ or to think they will not be happy again! There are solutions to problems and life should go on :)

Is there a punchline? I don't know what you're getting at.
I'd call them an animal abuser(our female and male had 8 pups a while ago).

Nevertheless, you don't see that person as a pet owner.

Why do you insist on the NAMBLA obfuscation nonsense?

Pedophiles are pedophiles. They are

I was just making an insult I knew the other would find offensive.
I have no problem with gays, angel or human.
I used the play on words of Gabriel blowing his trumpet with 'Gay' briel and 'blowing' a different instrument.
I thought it was quite clever.
My highs and lows reflect the highs and lows of each day.
You do not want to be near me when I wake up. I hurt all over and just want to go back to sleep...forever.
Then again, maybe you would like to be near me in the morning, we both might have a great day. <smile>
Perhaps sometimes we all forget that not only the person we are posting to will read the reply, but that others will too. There would be many who would find that posting offensive, I would imagine, but will leave it there.

Pain is not a good thing to wake up to ~ and in our sleep our dreams take us to places we know we can no longer go to in the 'flesh'..... but the experiences are just as fascinating as if it were 'real life':)
