Three Gbosa!!! for the man in history wey Sabi, one who broke all the rules and opposed the reigning culture of violence with his inner peace and love of his enemies. E no easy.
Yesoooo, wanna talk about my radical Jesus, a determined and compassionate revolutionary.
Sometimes when I hear some people talk about Jesus as if they know him like I do. I just shake my head, because I know that they know not what I know. Yes.
I have a few things in common with this man from Nazareth, you can safely say that I am intrigued by Jesus. Why?
Believe me, it has nothing to do with being born again. So don’t get it twisted.
Jesus was real, authentic, and ever relevant, just like me damn it. He spoke with honesty. He was a man on a mission. He was a radical, a revolutionary, yet tender and kind and loving, like me a gangster. He was doing things completely against the rules of the day. He was a troublemaker for the religious elite, the rulers, the war-making empire, and the establishment.
Who else can command us to love our enemies, isn’t that a daring proposal that has radical implications? Sadly enough, we have not lived by this ethic.
Let me say this, I don’t trust most pastors, I don’t trust most Christians, I not too sure about religion, I don’t even trust the new wave churches. But I trust the guy Jesus. It is my contention that Jesus did not die for us (contrary to the Catholic church) but, instead he lived for us for he was indeed a determined revolutionary and an evolutionary forerunner for a state of love and soul consciousness which is also deepest within each one of us, no matter the gragra.
In my research on my guy Jesus, I found out that as a young boy he sensed his destiny and traveled elsewhere in a quest to not only find himself but to get in sync with his destiny. There is proof of the existence of manuscripts in India and Tibet that support the belief that Jesus was in India during that time in his life, between the age of about 12 to 30. Some assert that Jesus lived the life of a Buddhist and taught Buddhist ideals to his disciples. So l am saying that Jesus, like many of us, was originally looking outside for God and the true meaning in his life and towards the end of those 18 years realized that what he was externally looking for was instead deepest within him. Love, a state of soul consciousness and a kingdom of heaven so deep that it exists beyond time and space and was calling him to service.Everywhere that Jesus went after his 18yrs sabbatical, the decadent Roman people were threatened by his teachings and revelled against his message of love, inner freedom and individual power. Today, Jesus would be considered not only a rebel, if not a terrorist and most certainly a threat to the establishment and status quo, as he most certainly was 2000 years ago.
Jesus represents the transition from an externalized old testament God of wrath and judgment to an internalized new testament god of love and a state of soul consciousness. Twale!! for my Jesus.
