Generally speaking, within the bible Jesus is depicted as being a kind of reformer. A freedom fighter of sorts
Someone who’s acted to help set believers free of bondage. Even to the extent of being willing to put his own life in danger. That there was how intent he were on changing the direction of bondage. He was even intent on ending the “bondage of high cost” that were in those time involved in procuring sacrificial offering (cost of animal used for ritual sacrifice, to God)
What was working against him?
System. System conspired against Jesus so as to help halt the change. Perhaps that had to happen, because of the power?. Because of reason how there was so much option power and wealth gain, that could stand to be lost . Should the intent of Jesus be allowed to be completed.
This amount to systemic failure?.
Jesus had approached the situation, single handed. But yet it was the “system” of what would then act to stall the progress of this humanitarian reform. So that bondage remained
Funny thing today the situation still seem to remain fairly similar. The system still prevail against humanitarian effort, so to help stall hope for further reform
Systemic failure still remain strong
The so called “real true Christian”, who might otherwise choose to truly follow in Jesus footsteps. Even today, still choose to sit back quietly and to continue to remain silent
The very same “air of indifference”
That cancer of inequality
Still remain ever so much as strong and powerful, even still today, just exactly the same way like what it also always was way back in those earlier times around 2000 years ago too
Because of reason how the systemic failure, has continually prevailed
Those same believer. Who back in time of Jesus. Might have otherwise been the one, to also step forward, to help highlight inequality, to help make demand for change to happen, for bondage to finally be broken
Didn’t bother to, back in ancient times
They still don’t bother to either
Perhaps this explain why heaven gates wont have need to be very wide?
Who knows, perhaps there may even be far more atheist who’ll get to be passing through them
Imagine that happening?. Imagine the massive amounts of “lip-drop” among believers rank and file. The level of dashed and broken ego
All that time spent on their unfailing upkeep of traditional “religious ritual”, and yet all for such low return
“It is the Spirit that quickens, the flesh profits nothing.”
Even the Catholic church had/has failed to learn from it?. Tradition has always constantly been,all about doing whatever it might take, to save-face. To refrain from changing, possibly due to fear of idea of needing to admit that “former practices” were perhaps not ever practices of what might be required, by God
To need to freely acknowledge that, was also the same thing as to relinquish ones own right, to hold right of power, “over others”
Systemic failure has constantly prevailed against it happening
Bondage and harm still continues on today
Still slip-streaming along within the very same widespread air of indifference
Nothing new under the sun?
