Kansas City Faith Blogger Considers More Inclusive Religious Terminology

TKC has always been fond of the term, "people of the book" but this town's most prolific faith-based scribe argues against limiting language in an increasingly pluralistic society.

Checkit:

It's past time to scrap the term 'Judeo-Christian'

Over the course of my life, I've often heard that the U.S. has an important "Judeo-Christian heritage." And that this heritage continues in many ways to define who we Americans are and what we stand for. The only problem with...

Okay how about "Mediterranean Monotheism"?

Will that do you as a label for Judaism and its three offshoots, Christianity, Islam and Bahai?

Name the fiction that Human Beings ever experience something they call "Spirituality" anything you want to, it's still just another myth.

We're the only animal that can delude itself to that extent, so we call that "Evolutionary Progress".

Jude-Christian was always more a political term than a religious one, designed to encourage Christian support for the Zionist project in Palestine.

But dropping Christian would be the same as denying Christ himself, and yes St. Paul went to his death with the name of Christ on his lips as he was fully a Christian. If he were still a Jew he would have continued persecuting the Christian sect.

"Judio/Christian" is outdated. Jewish people believe the foundation of the Christian religion, but not the most modern updated part. The are still waiting for a Messiah that already came, but he wasnt what they wanted. They wanted one that would get rid of Roman rule and make them rich! Make them a powerful nation to rule the area, re-confirm that they were "God's chosen people" and all others were basically shit, and below them (even though God made all races). However Jewish people no longer look to the skys at night and seek the signs of the Messiah's return, they are to busy with daily life and dont want the Messiah to return and upset they daily plans. No Jews walk around exclaiming that maye the Messiah will return today. Christians believe:

Christians believe the Messiah came and gave something more valueble that riches and "self rule". That the Messiah paid your fine for all your sins so you could be in God's presence when you die. God is so perfect even a tiny sin bars you from heaven, and no good work can get you to heaven. Christ paid the penalty. "Repent and believe". Athiests believe:

Athiests believe: All of the world came from nothing, there is no God. However oddly all people have the same conscience - all believe killing stealing lying is wrong. An athiest would never admit in a billion years that water, snow, ice, wind, erosion could build Mt Rushmore. But they believe those same environmental elements made the actual people depicted on Mt Rushmore. They dont believe in a creator as they want to rule their own lives free of a universal law, they want to "be their own God". They have no room for the real God. If your on a new airplane and it starts to crash you know something went wrong. If your on this earth and babies are born deformed and handicapped you know something previously "went wrong" with the world to cause it, and it wasn't God who went wrong. We tried to become like God, failed, and ruined ourselves - just as if you jumped off a cliff today.

@10:57 And that's why God took all Good Christians to Heaven at 12:01 am (Jerusalem time) on January 1, 2000, leaving all those who were not worthy of Heaven behind here on Earth, or to call it by its real name HELL!

But, out of his love and mercy, he wiped the memory of how the World was before the "Rapture" from the minds of those he abandoned, just as an experiment to see how long the would cling to the ragged shreds of Religion and blindly deny the reality of their inadequacies and what they are presently surrounded by.

11:09 is right! He has pictures of Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster too! They are right next to his copy of Mein Kampf and Communist Manifesto.

My thoughts : If we all just came from dirt and water, and there is no God, then we are nothing better than dirt. When you die you go back to being dirt. So you people are nothing. If someone kills youor a family member, then they really just killed dirt. Your meaningless. You can't prevent your eventual conversion to dirt. You will never exist again after you are buried. You really mean nothing. Everyone is dirt. Right?

If there is no God, then its only people dictating laws. And the laws change. 300 years ago a women couldnt show her ankle in public in Boston or she was a "witch" and be killed. Completely stupid law.

No real laws? So it ok for me to kill you or your kids! Maybe the laws say no right now. But in 300 years its might be just fine to kill anyone. I am just ahead of my time. Like a girl in Boston 300 years ago that walks around without a sock on her ankle. Dont tell me I am wrong, as there are no universal laws

Jewish people are "mistaken". They missed the boat. They are not Christian and should not be grouped into a phrase using the word Christian.

Jewish people oddly stopped all animal sacrifices as most importantly dictated by the old testament. Those sacrifices are the only way they can cleanse their sins and go to heaven! Have you ever heard of a Jewish person sacrificing an animal here in Kansas City and burning its remains on an altar? Jewish people eat pork now. They touch people that are not Jewish and are "unclean". They do not go through the rituals to cleanse themselves if they touch an animal. They no longer attach a small scroll of scripture to their front door frame as required by the old testament. They shop and drive on the sabbath. Jewish people are more of a social group that raises money for their own causes and the State of Israel. Its kind of like being Italian, or American, or Canadian - its a nationality - not a religion!

If there is no God, then people who are unhappy have only themselves to blame! Its all YOUR fault. (There is no God to blame)

I knew a chick in 1972 who was a hot blonde and thought she was a goddess. She was so proud and egotistical. Now she is a ugly old biddy in a nursing home that no man would ever imagine having sex with. My how times change for Goddesses! BLM, women's right no long do!

Anonymous said...

If she was blonde then she wasnt Jewish. Dont bring her up here. I knew a Jewish girl that was depressed cause she couldnt be a beautiful blonde. She hated her black hair etc. And she had to marry a jewish man. That was the rule baby! Not sure what happened to her, but gossip was her familys pasttime.

You Atheists think because you "truly believe" there is no God that your right? Reminds me of a criminal in the 1820's who did a murder in a territory thinking there was no Judge within hundreds of miles. He got caught, told the judge he didnt believe he was a real judge, and said "you can't do anything to me".

The real Judge sentenced him to death and promptly had him hung!

If you say there is no God, and your that smart, tell me which stock will be up 20% on any of the exchanges tommorow? Huh?

3:11: And yet your ignorance is exceeded only by your arrogance; there are many blond and blonde Jews. Weird.

True Jewish people, from the actual Holy Land area are not blonde. Now once they went to germany or switzerland and married locals, yes they had blonde hair. You will never see a hasidic or Orthodox Jew with blonde hair!

I am not Jewish, but know many people that are. They only speak about themselves, never ask how I am doing, but will spend hours telling you about every health issue or family problem they have, even that their car doesnt get the gas mileage listed on the sales window sticker - yes it was a 1/2 hour conversation about gas mileage. I could be dying from cancer and they would never know (or want to know). Thats why I dont count them as true friends.

6:05: And yet there are many orthodox and Hasidic Jews with blond/blonde hair. Keep in mind in those societies, if the mother is Jewish, the child is also.

6:08: You need to get out more. One or two is not "many," and inconsiderate and self-centered people come from all walks of life, dear. There's even one in the White House.

Anonymous said...

Hey 6:08 - I agree with you, It appears that most Jewish people have a 60 minute speech about themselves and their lives that they are ready to tell to as many people as they can corner each day. When they are done, they will then ask you how your doing, but cut you off and then leave. They sure don't want to hear ANY of your problems.

Christians will try and "SAVE YOU" from hell. They never say much about their personal lives or problems.

Which would you choose if you had to pick one?

Anonymous said...

Yeah - Jewish people want to tell you all about their problems in great detail. But they dont want to hear yours. Its called lack of empathy and selfishness. If they ever find out your not Jewish, all of a sudden they treat you like your some kind of sub-human. Your not "part of the club".

Want to have fun : ask a Jewish Rabbi about Jesus raising the dead and healing people - how it could be done if Jesus was just human? The jewish historian Josephuis recorded countless cases of jesus healing and raising the dead (more than just lazarus). Watch the Rabbi run away!

Sadly, instead of upholding the position of God's chosen people, and evangelizing the world, the Jewish faith has become an exclusive club and more importantly has turned their backs on God, and his miraculous gift of salvation. Its free. And they turn it down.

Idol worship of the Golden calf, desiring to return to egypt, killing christ, the worship of Bale, Jews sacrificing their children by burning them alive to their God called "Moloch". Yes the Jews threw their own children alive into the mouth of a huge glowing red hot bronze idol called Moloch and let the children roast to death in the dry bronze upper compartment, with a fire in the lower half. Thousands of jewish children were killed by their parents this way, in spite of the fact that Moloch is never mentioned in the bible once! Sacrificed so they might become wealthy and happy. What about the kid's happiness? God is pissed off!

The OT Hebrews might have burned their born children alive in sacrifice to a pagan god but modern Americans can hardly be said to be better as we murder millions in their mothers' wombs in what the church of Satan claims is one of their sacraments called abortion.

7:10 - very true. Jewish people are actually much higher in intelligence than the norm. Many inventions, art, music etc are founded on Jewish accomplishments. However they are egotistic and seem to only care for themselves.

In spite of their religions #1 commandment : You shall love the Lord with all your heart and love your neighbors as much as you love yourself. They fail on this and its THEIR EDICT (not mine)

I have seen some hot jewish women that are very pretty. But I avoid them

Bill Tammeus has repeatedly attacked Israel, the only Jewish state in the world as if it is wrong to identify it as a Jewish state...but ignores the fact that there are over a dozen Arab states. He is an anti Semitic fool who acts like he is above it all. Bill, we know you are a JEW HATER!!!!!

Jesus told the Pharasees that they were on the way to hell, as they could not alieviate their sins by good works or trying to keep hundreds of man made laws. And at that time, the Pharasees were hands down the most religious people in the world. And they were failing. Thus Christ was sent to fix things.

So Christ's death on the cross purges his follower's sins.
If you DONT follow Christ, you must pay for your sins YOURSELF.
Perhaps you will then hang on a cross, in hell, forever as you you can never personally pay off all your sins. The cross seems to be the method to deal with sin. It will also remind you of the free gift of salvation you rejected
