"Can of worms".. me a vego of many years standing.
Don't have a picture of Jesus on the wall, let alone that european styled atroscity that had to be dealt with by InI. Thank "God" for science and history, the true telling of both and our ability and means today to sift them both.
The Roman Empire,the great Imperialists, the British Empire, the United States of America, the great modern day imperialists.
InI are a product of this, on this technology, in this language, in these times.
It is undeniable, that the concerted, deliberate, diabolical, heineous, evil, concentrated destruction of all indigenous populations, languages, stories, customs, cultures,lands was instrumented through this systematic imperialist opportunism using the "church".
I see it everyday, every moment as you do..
I cannot disagree with you O Disciple, one iota
I don't have all the answers or any really except that I personally know what Jesus of Nazareth looks like, I know His face, I know some of His teachings, I know in the face of certain death on three occassions I have been saved/rescued by His power. (whatever it is)
What is faith? Why? Who? How? What?
Dunno but i know as I am sitting here qwertying to you it is so as I have been shown.. visually, in practice, in kind, in person from a child of 3.
Said it before many atime and probably will have to say it again, that is it, and not much of an intellectual debate, either, sorry.
Much love judah
