Jesus Was For The Jews

Just read the New Testament. Jesus said that he only came for the Jews. He helped the woman at the fountain because she had great faith in spite of her not being jewish.

His only new commandment was to love your enemies. Otherwise he just stated what Moses had already said and refined them abit- like saying that if you lust after a woman in your heart, you have committed adultery with her. Essentially, rather than create a boundary as jewish law had, he created degrees of perfection. Instead of just keeping the law, you had to aim at perfection to get into heaven.

But he also said in the Sermon on the Mount that in order to get into heaven, you had to keep all the laws of Moses- all 613 of them. I hope that is not still true as no one can keep all the laws nowadays for lack of an unblemished red heffer.
------------------------
In the beginning of Christianity, you had to be Jewish and be circumscized in order to be Christian.

Paul changed all of this. He was the first to reach out to the gentiles. He was the first to say that you did not have to be jewish or be circumscized. He also said that women are to men like men are to god, a very un-Jesus thing to say since Jesus had women as leaders in his group. Mother Mary has finally asserted her place in the church. She is the modern doer- the one to pray to for the best results. The Holy Rosary is the Christian mantra. Not at all what Paul expected.

Then Constantine came along and made Christianity the Roman state religion. The church has not been the same since. It became unlawful to teach judiasm under penalty of death. That was the beginning of anti-semetism. The church became the opposite of love thy enemy.

So in my opinion, Paul created Christianity as a religion separate from Judiasm, and Constantine turned it from a peaceful to a warlike religion. The church was then no longer what Jesus had wanted. Chuch authorities are stuck with Paul and Constantine, and in your case, Henry VIII.

Read it for yourself. I recommend the bibles where what jesus said is in red. Then just read the red to find out what Jesus really wanted. But then you have problems with the color red. You probably also have trouble with the fact that Jesus lived in a commune with the Essenes according to the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Regards,

Richard
