A semi crappy text about Jesus and God and their believers
I do not know Jesus at all.
I have not met him.
Or been in touch with him.
They told me a lot about him when I was a child.
I remember thinking that he had a quite exiting life.
Then they tried to make me believe that he would return.
They also talked about his father. A lot.
This guy called God.
He was always in heaven.
My grandmother had a painting of a bearded quite handsome man sitting on a mountain overlooking a valley.
There was this halo on top of his head & he was wearing something resembling sheets. He had long brown soft hair.
I never really could get if he was jesus or God.
The same guy was also appearing in a picture where he was escorting two small children over a bridge.
Probably because a thunderstorm was about to start.
I do not know. Was that Jesus?
When I grew older I heard that he died on a cross.
Mel Gibson made a crappy 3 hour movie about this. Watching it was like torture.
Then I heard that Jesus never died on that cross. That some people rescued him & took him to India.
Or Spain. Or Japan.
What ever. It's all very confusing.
Anyway, with a mature skepticism I have to admit that all these bible stories are just that - stories.
I get the point that it's nice to believe in something.
Let's say when you're sad and you don't have anyone to call then it's quite comforting to talk to an imaginary character like God or Jesus.
And it's even better because loads of other people also do that.
But why on earth do some people think that a problem is solved because we talk to an imaginary man?
I guess it can give strength - it's sort of similar to meditation...
So, let's then think about why people who truly believe in these guys, Jesus & God, why are they so against people with other believes?
Why can't they love other people with other values and ideas?
Why do they believe they are right just because they believe their God is the right God?
Throughout history the men of God & Jesus have committed terrible bloody crimes.
It does not seem like a system I want to support. Unfortunately. Sorry about that.
