Anything a person says about the true intentions of Jesus are pure speculation. He never wrote anything down. NONE of us have any idea what he actually said, what he meant. There is little if any credible evidence that such a historical person even existed. You can make Jesus into absolutely ANYTHING you want to believe him to be. But that does not make it true.
How many times has a religion addict said to you, "What Jesus really meant was..." When there it is in print - from the author of a gospel, pretending to be a disciple, a hundred years later, having Jesus arrogantly announce that he is the ONLY WAY to God? Really? The only way? Get over yourself homeboy.
How many children today are being brainwashed to think that if they don't believe that Jesus was the son of God, they will be cast into a lake of hell fire for all eternity? Brainwash is child abuse. The day America recognizes that is the day we take a quantum leap forward towards being the free nation we claim to be, while telling the rest of the world how they ought to behave.
More people have died in Jesus name than any other. Christianity has caused more suffering that it has comforted. It's time for us to snap out of it and to really inquire instead of just believe. It's time to grow up and question absolutely everything, if you have the courage to do so.
Anything short of true, deep and radical inquiry is just wishful thinking. Religious superstition is an addiction that our civilizations can no longer afford - if we wish to avoid yet another world war and survive, leaving future generations a better world than the bloodied and brainwashed world that we all inherited - then it's time to kick the crack addiction to Christ.
