The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.<quoted text>
...The core of Christianitythe worship of a miracle working, walking, talking godman who brings salvationwas also the core of other ancient religions that began at least a thousand years before the Jesus story. Did you not know this?
.....Heaven, hell, prophecy, demon possession, sacrifice, initiation by baptism, communion with God through a holy meal, the Holy Spirit, monotheism, immortality of the soul, and many other "Christian" ideas all belonged to earlier, older Pagan faiths. They were simply part of ancient Mediterranean culture. Along with miracle working sons of God, born of a mortal woman, they were common elements of pre-Christian Pagan religion. Mithras had 'em. So did Dionysus, Attis, Osiris, and Orpheus. And more. Christianity just put their own spin on old traditions and customs.(lol)
People want a God to exist, only to satisfy their own selfish desires and wants. If a man named Jesus never promised eternal salvation no one would give a damn about a man named Jesus or anything written about him from 2,000 years ago. Right?
Its all wishful thinking. Now go and do something constructive with your life instead of dreaming about an imaginary place after you die.
....Anticipation is always more exciting, then the actual thing you experience. Keep dreaming!
