If Jesus were a shroomery member...
    #2377594 - 02/26/04 01:16 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

and called a hypocrite, a hypocrite, would he get a warning?

If he pointed out the Judas goat for betraying his friendship would he be further censured?

If he continued unabated and asked those without sin to cast the first stone would he get finally get banned so that the other members could rest easier in their spiritual ignorance and arrogant pride?

Or would he be welcomed with open arms despite his direct and agitating style of teaching?

would we know if it was jesus or not?

Would it be hypocritical to let it slide? Or... if Jesus was direct in saying " well, you are being hypocritical because..." (typically people who are hypocrite's are hypocritical. )

I dont see what would be wrong with that.

Maybe its the vagueness which causes the problem, cause maybe people assume too much when they dont know. Is this the case? Where is jesus?

What?

Well how did Jesus call out the hypocrite? If Jesus did it in Bible Jesus style he would have done it with a parable, and no he wouldnt be warned for that. He wouldnt call out Judas directly either, the most he (bible jesus) would do would be tell him that he was forgiven, but his dad didnt appreciate it.

If Jesus were a shroomery member... we'd crucify him... yeah, I think that's what would happen. Yep.. pretty sure.

If the old rules applied, Jesus would have to be crucified.
However, I take the position that modern martyrs don't have to die. And a simple banning wouldn't suffice either, because the people need to see blood. So I'm thinking that Jesus would have to do a cage match with his dissenters.

The Fightin' Jesus... yeah, I like him.

You are not Jesus... ok now that we got that out of the way. I think If Jesus posted on this forum his ideas would be no more outrageous than some of the ones that are already here. I mean fireworks_god has his own universe and Shrommism is an alien do you see us banning them??? If Jesus were alive today, the Shroomery would probably be the only place he wouldn't get banned from.

With the moneychangers, there certainly was no parable. He went into a rage and flipped over the bazaar stalls.

Weight category or open match? Group or one at a time? Would miracles be allowed?

I'm sorry to have to do this again, but I'm going to have to ask the two of you to stay out of eachother's threads and not reply to eachother anymore. It takes two to fight.


--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

Is this your extent of knowledge about the Bible?
*thinly disguised personal slam*

Please quote the verse(s) that state Jesus was in a rage.
So he made a whip out of cords and drove all from the Temple, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. To those who sold doves he said: 'Get out of here.' (John 2:13-16)

Is this thread an attempt at a parable?
It is about exactly what it says. Jesus questioned the authority and beliefs of those around him and paid the price. I don't believe things have changed much today among those who see themselves as being religiously or spiritually superior.

I think you'd do better to speak your meaning plainly.
My meaning was quite clear. Others understood.

Not to go too far afield but people who constantly equate themselves with Jesus have a Messiah complex and are emotionally/mentally disturbed. I certainly hope that isn't what you are doing. I worry about you.
*undisguised multiple personal slams*

There isn't one line where I equate myself with anybody.

What did I just tell you, Swami?

Thread is being locked. And any more threads by either of you where you feel the need to start your petty squabbling will be locked.
