Very unequal.
The Holy Spirit is always coming in last. How many church are named after the "Holy Spirit?"
There are churches named after Mary, "Queen of Heaven" (not an official goddess BTW). There are churches named after her son.
But seriously, are there any named after the Holy Spirit (formerly Holy Ghost)?
Many. Fear not.

Jesus must have been partying for most of his life, because he seems to have disappeared between the ages of 12 and 30.
He was with me in one of my last incarnations.

Please don't fault me. I couldn't resist him as he was one super-hot tamale ... I tell you!

And that business about him not enjoying sex???... well that's another story for a later time.

Thanks, I didn't know about it. Which of these works has Jesus saying that to know thyself is all you need?
Not a problem.

Unfortunately, many so-called "Christians" don't realize these teachings that Jesus made. You aren't alone.

But.....you have an opportunity to take a step that they don't understand.

(3) Jesus says:

(1) "If those who lead you say to you:‘Look, the kingdom is in the sky!’
then the birds of the sky will precede you.
(2) If they say to you:‘It is in the sea,’ then the fishes will precede you.
(3) Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and outside of you."
(4) "When you come to know yourselves, then you will be known,
and you will realize that you are the children of the living Father.
(5) But if you do not come to know yourselves, then you exist in poverty, and you are poverty."

They rejected Him.
How do I know?
They don't regard Him as the savior.
As a mnemonic device, sing this along to the tune of the old 'Chicken of the Sea' tuna ads:
"Ask any Rabbi you happen to see, who's your Savior? He'll say it ain't J.C."
You are now saying they rejected him only after he died and stopped teaching.

If Jesus had been teaching he was a god, yes, he would have been rejected during his lifetime.

But he was teaching that we could all have his power. So when he was alive, he wasn't claiming to be god.

You should find out what "son of God" meant to the Jews of the day. They called King David and others the same "son of God," but never was it meant the way you take it today.

Or remain willfully ignorant and keep slandering the Jews.

This is no need for me to stand in line with anyone. Especially since they are just like Catholica, still only beleiving in a portion of Jesus.

The holy spirit is suppose to be guiding the catholic church. No one else just the catholic church, but for some reason the holy spirit never informed the hirearchy of the thousands of sexual abuses that were going on right under the noses of all those roman catholic officials that claim they get guidance from above.
Somebody slipped up bigtime!
BAAHHHH Theologians were and are just mortal humans playing at BEING gods.

"Know thyself" isn't license to project "thyself" upon others, is it? I didn't think Gnosticism was Gnowitallicism.

You may interpret as you wish, but no need to presume my need for correction. As they say, keep it to your......

If you believe that is true, then you should check on who rejected the teachings. It wouldn't BE faithful Jews. It would be ex-Jew Catholics wanting to start their break-away religion AWAY from the true form of Judaism.

If you use your brain to question your dogmas you will see that your dogmas are lies.

Of course all dogmas based on fortune telling ARE lies, as the future is not ours to see.

It get it now.

Daddy-god created man, but somehow didn't figure in man's ineptitude when sending son-god to die on their behalf.

So daddy-god isn't inept. Just daddy-god's own creation and somehow daddy-god had no idea.

LOL, ever own an ant farm? That's like blaming the ants when a kid knocks over his ant farm.

You can't make it sound sensible or reasonable, because it's only a delusion -- just like all other gods in history.

Well, I'm going to counter you here and say that the
ex-Jew Catholics wanting to break away probably DIDN'T reject Jesus' teachings.

......as they evidently didn't.

The Jewish establishment of the day did reject Jesus' teachings.

I was asking you a question, that you refused to answer. Note the last sentence.

I get it. You will believe that other savior-gods didn't come even the first time around, much less the second time around as promised by other theologians. But you WILL believe that a savior will come the second time around to save you.
Is that because you believe all the other people didn't deserve a savior ... but you are so special that the savior is BOUND to come?

The Jew's messiah was never supposed to be a god.

The messiah was supposed to be another warrior like King David, who was also called "son of god."

You also refused to address the fact that Jesus taught more than once that we could have his same power. Why would a god say that?

You slander the Jews in order to support your delusion. Thankfully, you can't legally kill them any longer. Nor kill me either. A true God would never need such compulsion.

Mother Teresa forced herself against her own conscience to keep the faith in Catholic dogmas.
And for that she will made into a Catholic saint.
June VanDerMark:

Conscience in a religious sense is different than the social sense(feeling good about one's decisions), and is only part of a free-will.

Also an informed conscience(in a philosophical sense), in making decisions is a highly complex set of variables(primarily virtues vs vices) to perform when done correctly.

Most children are forced to clean up their rooms. Most don't feel good about doing the work, but afterward various forms of "feeling good" are achieved.

Inept men rejected son-god. Crucified Him. Daddy-god knew this was going to happen as did son-god. Part of daddy-god plan.

Inept man remains inept (surprise).
