Easter to me is a day when 2.5billion Christians decided 2 believe the word of the 'disciples' of christ that their leader had risen from the dead.I wonder who is more gullible, the people who lived in christ's era or the people who are living in this modern era? Because it takes a lot of gullibility for people to believe that a man could die and then resurrect three days later. And then when I asked what Jesus really came to change, somebody told me that he came to make 'asking for forgiveness easier and being forgiven easier as well'. Seeing as that before God use to require that all those animals be killed just so he could forgive man pikin. Personally, I think the proper term for Easter should be 'Happy Gullibility' day.Lazarus rose from the dead to, I wonder why we don't worship him. This brings me to my other question, what makes a man God?? Permit me to qualify that statement, I mean what qualifications must a man have in other to be considered a God.
Someone told me that Jesus was obviously a God because he performed miracles etc, now Jesus was not the only person to do miracles in the bible and am sure I do not have to provide an example of other people in the bible who performed miracles but just incase somepeople do not know. People like Moses, Paul, Peter, Jeremiah, Isiah, Ezra etc performed miracles. So obviously if it takes performing miracles for one to be called a God, now all these other people would fall under that category.
The other qualification that somebody told me was that, Jesus is a God because he 'rose' from the dead. Now as I previously mentioned, if it takes 'rising from the dead' for a man to be considered a God then Lazarus would be considered a God as well. Now some of you will say well, Lazarus was raised from the dead by Jesus and I will say that Jesus was raised from the dead by God. So @ the end of the day, as long as person sha rise from the dead it does not matter who is helping them to rise, as long as them sha rise come dey walk they go, then they have 'risen'. So obviously the 'rising from the dead' part is out of the window... Anybody that can come up with other qualifications that make a man God, is welcomed to do so.
Now unto the catholic church, I do not know if yall remember my post about NO MAN IS INFALLIBLE? Well in the catholic church, they believe in this thing called 'Papal Infallibility', now Ego du jour told me that this applies to only the conversation a pope has with God but not with a pope's personal life etc. Papal Infallibility is discussed in this catholic website (Papal Infallibility). See before if I was trying to persuade somebody to my argument I would use any means necessary in order to win, neglecting the truth but this days if am arguing with somebody and I know something that can help them win that argument, I do not keep it to myself I offer it to them. Because at the end if I truly say that I want truth, then I should not manipulate or hide the process of reaching the truth of a matter from people just because I want my ego to be 'stroked' because I won an argument. Hence, why I posted the catholic website, normally I would have gotten something from wikipedia and called it a night, but if I honestly want to be truthful I should go to the catholic website because they themselves can explain what papal infallibility is. Now from what I got from that website, Ego du Jour was right, papal infallibility does deal with the pronouncements made by the pope with the assistance of the Holy Spirit. But my question now is this, how does a pope who kept quiet while children were being molested still maintain credibility in the form of 'papal infallibility'?? Why then should anybody trust any 'Holy Decrees' uttered from this man's lips?? A serious loss in credibility. This man knew kids were being molested but rather than expose it, preferred to keep it a secret. Why you may ask would a holy man do that?? Because the thing about religious institutions is that most people who work for them would rather sweep things under the rug than let it see the light of day. In my humble opinion, this pope's moral compass would make Hitler and Stalin blush. 200 kids were molested by this priest yet pope benedict did nothing to stop it. Make una no vex about this infrequent postings, but man pikin has been very busy... I am going to make blog rounds come Thursday afternoon lol.
