If Christianity was taught and practiced as it was by Him who was known as 'Jesus', there would not be a religion on Earth that could find fault with it. He taught that every man on Earth, was God embodied. If you disagree with that, then let me remind you of a couple of portions of scripture that verifies it 'Whatsoever you do to the least of these, you do it unto me'. And again in St. John chapter 1 ' he was that true light, that lighteth every man that commeth into the World'. And He showed us that there was an alternative to death 'He who liveth and believeth in me (AS me) shall never die.' And for those who think it is blasphemy to say we can walk AS God I ask this question. Is a branch not the Vine manifesting? He walked As the Vine, so why can't we? Because we think we are this 'person' our parents created when they named us! He knew this. So in order for us to 'get back on track', He told us we must be born again! Born into the realization that the "I", or the " I am" within us is God…the Father. When we see that this has to be, we take upon ourselves the likeness of 'our' Father. That likeness is the Christ. We were created to 'be' the Christ, (not to worship the Christ) but because the concept of the Spiritual Rebirth that has been and is still being, promoted by the Evangelical Religions of the World, is erroneous, it is impossible to attain the Mind of the Father…the Christ Mind. This is what Christianity is all about. Man…is God embodied! It is the purpose of the Church to teach us how to walk As Jesus walked. But because the Church sees 'Jesus' as being Lord and savior, rather than God, (the Holy Spirit) they 'worship' 'Jesus', instead of walking AS God! And…we cannot walk As God, until we realize that He is the "I" within us, nor can we walk As God without 'dying to self', and until the self is crucified, we cannot effectively function As the Father!
It was not "Jesus" who was born in that manger in Bethlehem some 2000 years ago. It was a 'boy' child that was God in the infant stage of development. And they named Him 'Jesus'! (Jesus was not 'who' He was… 'Jesus' was just His name. God (the Father) was who He was! (Did He not make us…all of us, in His image and likeness?) Certainly He did, but …He did not create the person we believe ourselves to be. Our parents did that when they named us at our birth. But Jesus' Mother taught him who He was, and so as He grew up, He functioned as His Father (As the "I" within Him). This is what set Him apart from all other men. Because we were not made aware of the fact that the "I" within us is also the Father…we function as a mere man… as the 'person' we were made to believe ourselves to be. So the Christianity we see today, is a sham compared to the Christianity taught by Jesus of Nazareth.
