My God so I searched for the third picture for an hour, I lowkey felt like God didn't want me to find it because that was what this whole blog post is based upon. So I came across the third picture on facebook the other day and I got to asking on twitter "Why did God not create Jesus the same way he did Adam and Eve".
Some people replied with answers like this "Well God wanted we humans to believe that Jesus was real because we could identify more with Jesus if Jesus was human and born just like everybody else"
So let us think about this for a second, so this was God's thought process "Them humans down yonder would never believe that Jesus was the Son of God if I created him like I did Adam and Eve but surely they will believe that a Virgin suddenly became pregnant and her fiance (joseph) was not the father."
I guess God was right, 2 billion people have believe this story and it's pretty amazing. But this is where I don' buy the whole "God was trying to make Jesus more logical/reasonable to Humans by making him be born through a woman". Today, a high percentage of people believe that the world was created by God and that he created Adam from dust and woman from Adam's rib. Now why would the same people who believe in a story like that, now be so doubtful when it comes to "Jesus being created from dust as well"? If they were "gullible" enough to believe that Adam was created from dust, what would stop them from being gullible enough to believe that Jesus was created from dust as well? If God's reason for using Mary to carry Jesus was because he wanted to appeal to our human logic and the way human beings think nature is supposed to work then he should not have bothered with going the extra mile. We humans had already believed he
man from dust,
woman from man,
serpents that could talk,
donkeys that could talk,
tower that almost reached heaven (tower of babel)
seas that could part into two, (Moses)
Man who could walk on water
Walls that collapsed because people walked around it (Jericho)
flood that had swallowed up the whole earth,
woman who had turned to pillar of salt, (Lots wife)
Whales that swallowed men and spit them out (Jonah)
Men who could stop the sun from going down (Moses)
Yall get my point, we had already believed so many "bizarre/out of this world" stories that another story like "God creating Jesus" would not even shake our so called Faith.. Infact, the more ridiculous the story the more we guarantee God that we will believe it.
Personally I don't believe Jesus is the literal Son of God, I don't believe Mary took birth because of God, she either did what some so called virgins do these days and mistakenly get knocked up or the whole story is hog wash. Now Jesus was a great man and that is all he was, another man like Martin Luther King, Ghandi, Mother Theresa people like that. If there is truly a God and I believe there is, the bible is not his word of God and that book is a blasphemy unto his name. I've never understood why people label people like me "blasphemers" when they themselves are the ones blaspheming against God by professing a book that has so many fairy tale stories and contradictions is inspired by God.
