Question on one of J.C.'s teachings...
    #1142445 - 12/15/02 07:59 AM (15 years, 7 days ago)

If I have sinned by lusting after my neighbor's wife; and in Jesus' words, there is no difference between the thought and the act in the eyes of God, should I just go ahead and pound her on the kitchen table and incur no greater stain on my soul once I have already had the thought?


--------------------



The proof is in the pudding.

Not on my table....Thou shalt not fucketh where I eateth my bread

You might not stain your soul any further, but watch the table cloth.

Only if your neighbor gets to fornicate your wife on your kitchen table. The act commited as retribution for your previous sins may have viable substituion rights whereas the kitchen table may be substituted for either A) your couch, or B) your washing machine (unbalanced by 4 loin cloths, creating a rocking motion), but only if the committee agrees to forfit the virgin rights of his 19 year old daughter upon a day which menstruation is minimal.

Acknowledge, ponder, and discuss.


--------------------
No one knows the worth of innocence till he knows it is gone forever, and that money can't buy it back. Not the saint, but the sinner that repenteth, is he to whom the full length and breadth, and height and depth, of life's meaning is revealed. Good and evil loose all objective meaning and are seen as equally necessary and contrasting elements in the masterpiece that is the universe.

So the physical implications are more important than the spiritual implications?

In reply to:

Phluck:

Swami:

Yes, they are... especially if he's well hung, bisexual and surprises you from behind during the act.


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

... with one sin you go to hell, so whats the worry of a few more?

This reminds me of a poem I saw once:

Murder is evil,
Evil is Sin,
Sin is forgiven,
So do it again!

Okay. This is what I think it means, but i'm not very good at expressing this type of thing, so it's Be Here Now to the rescue again..

"Except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter the kingdom of heaven

Unless you start again. become that trusting open surrendered being, the energy can't come in. that is the kingdom of heaven."

It isn't about sin really, it's about purifying the mind. How could you become one with god if you're mind is at a level which is below god? It doesn't "fit".

It's not like god is punishing you or anything. It's just the way it works. It couldn't be any other way.

The reason there is no difference between the thought and the act is because, in terms of conscioussness, there just isn't too much of a difference. It's about conscioussness.

When you take away the idea of it all being about punishment and eternal damnation, then it begins to make sense.

How could you become one with god if you're mind is at a level which is below god?

Doesn't creating a dichotomy by saying reproductive instincts are "bad" further divide us through guilt and make us less whole or less holy?

I don't really care about the spiritual reasons. I'd say if you're a decent person, you'd care about the husband's feelings, and know that this would be horrible for him.

Maybe you hate the husband... in which case, yes, the physical implications are more important.

Monogamy is one of the biggest scams and means of control humanity has ever devised. I highly doubt the real historical Jesus ever said such a thing to begin with.
