Xian rhetoric makes me smile cos it reminds me of the dog I once had and loved. I would walk him through the fields and if I saw a rabbit I would call him and point frantically trying in vain to show him where the rabbit was. He couldn't understand that I was trying to indicate what I wanted him to do. He would look at my finger and hand then start jumping up and down as if they concealed a treat causing that much fuss that the rabbit would be long gone by the time he settled.
This has become similar to how I now regard Xianity. Jesus was a Rabbi and he was trying to show the way as he saw it, not become the centre figure of a cult. He was Jewish and wanted people to obey the laws of God, rather like many religeous Jews have the same wishes today. I think he would be turning in his grave for the fact that he inadvertently started a pollytheistic religeon.
Stop looking at the finger, look where I'm pointing. Stupid dog!
