I edited. Sorry he took my post out of context. Don't recall stating Jesus and Jim Jones were one in the same.

I will take partial blame just for the fact I ventured into the Spirituality forum. LOL

Hook me up a new revolution, cause this one is a lie. Sat around laughing and watched the last one die.

Didn't mean to hit a nerve guy. The question is why were people drawn to him. Why are people drawn to anybody? BTW Bible quotes do nothing for me. The church left a sour taste in my mouth long ago.


Joe
I have read some of your other posts on Christianity and I got the impression that you have a sour taste for Christianity. So when you used Jim Jones to show a similarity to Jesus I took that as a derogatory statement towards Christ. Yes they both drew people to them but the longevity of thier appeal tells the real true story. How many people will follow Jim Jones and how many people still follow Jesus? I could be wrong about your taste for christianiy, Am I?

Joe, if you meant nothing sour about your Jim Jones---Jesus similarities then I apologize.


We do have something in common Joe. I have had a few churches leave a sour taste in mouth also. That is why churches do not define Christ for me. I am fortunate in that I no longer alow any man to tell me about my spirit and my beliefs about God. I do a lot better about not letting other people taint the truth and strength of Jesus. I learned the hard way because I put the so called super religious people up on the spiritual plane higher than I should have.

My beliefs in Jesus come from scriptures, applying His principles, and living life for over 50 years to se how they worked out. I have found that Christ’s ways are far superior to other ways and that is based on faith and actual experiences in life.

Years ago I was a frequent visitor of the taverns in my home town and I have been in all kinds of churches for decades. I have found good and bad in both and finally decided to forget basing my spiritual beliefs on other people but learned, and applied Jesus priciples, and observe life for myself.

I do empathize with you on the churches putting a sour taste in your mouth. We are comrades in that we both have had some pure lemon juice poured down our throat. However, that just made me moiré independent from the so called religious authorities. I now sometimes use them as a supplement to my base and can easily throw out any sour lemon juice. Sometimes they are helpful but they can no longer pour any lemon juice down my throat.


If you meant nothing derogatory about using Jim Jones and Jesus in your post then again I do apologize.

Blunt
