Welcome

The spectacular way in which the message of Christ spread across the world 300 years prior to the introduction of a Bible speaks volumes about the prominence of Jesus’s narrative. Welcome to a site that explores the crisis of human identity. Christ (Eternal Expression of Individual/God) versus Bible (Dubious temporal expressions of Individual/God) Across the globe we have conflicting expressions of God based on descriptions that come from a multitude of obscure testimonies.. A common perception through the ages has been that only the literate elite, the crafters of law, qualify to be priests of authority/God. Another common perception is that only the descendants of a priestly Abraham or a King belong to God, the rest are kafir ‘outside the rule of belief of both Jew and Muslim’. It is a perception carried by many types of egotistical monsters occupying powerful posts in States today who award themselves with an array of titles that suggest heavenly proximity, superiority of religious rank and a God-given right to rule over others, wearing esoteric symbols with dark ‘spiritual meanings’.  Along comes Jesus Christ and attacks this imagined superiority of rank. No wonder he was hated, and still is, by those who make meaning out of images they create for themselves that promote their identity above others based on a relationship with the divine. Jesus trashed these man-made images of identity and superiority when he said, ‘No-one comes to God except through me’. By me, he meant the son of man, a servant of all.  An equal.  When one explores who the ‘me’ is in the story and how ‘God’ was portrayed by those around him as ‘me’ and ‘God’, the ‘us’ all powerful,  it becomes clear why he also said the door is narrow that leads to eternal life. The roots of human identity, and therefore purpose, is based entirely on fantasy, an imagined reality. People imagine they are great, superior, a cut above the rest, either as individuals, or as a class, or as a nation. This arrogance of status puts into perpetual motion the revolving doors of economic conflict, of social exclusion, of transitory human value and of epic blood baths. Here’s an example of this arrogance written by a doyen of the British Establishment. “I contend that we are the finest race in the world and the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race. Just fancy those parts that are at present inhabited by the most despicable of human beings; what an alteration there would be in them if they were brought under Anglo Saxon influence.. Added to which the absorption of the greater portion of the world under our rule simply means the end of all wars.” – Cecil Rhodes (1853 – 1902) A university scholarship was named after him.
