This is a religious discussion/debate. If you’ve never been to my blog before KNOW that I write about ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that comes to my mind and nothing is OFF limits. This includes RELIGION. Please be polite, respectful and understanding when engaging others or myself as I will do the same. You MAY or MAY NOT like what is said, you may NOT agree with it, but at least hear/read me out and try to see my point (and others) from an objective view. I am NOT trying to DIRECTLY attack you or YOUR Religion. It’s nothing personal! Thank you.
I know many Christians, from my personal experience growing up with a 7th Day Adventist Father; Friends who are Catholic; people I’ve met – have told me things, said things to me about accepting Jeshua (Jesus Christ) as my Lord and Savior, as God, essentially. Sometime, back in last year when I originally wrote up the outline for this topic, I came to a sudden realization.
Note: Jeshua is how I am going to be referring to “Jesus Christ” for the duration of my post. Thank you.
Now one would wonder how or why I didn’t come to it sooner, but I came to it in my own time and place and that’s what’s important. Since I am someone who has studied an array of Celtic, Greco-Roman and other types of Legend and Lore out there – I realized, “Oh my goodness! Jeshua actually would be a Demigodby all accounts! Not GOD but a Demigod because he is the “Son” of God!“
Now if you know anything about Lore yourself, whether you are Christian or no, that might make complete sense to you. There might also be people still shaking their heads at me and my comment though and that’s okay too. I do understand to a fair extent about why.
Growing up I just never could buy into the, “Jeshua is your GOD! Put all your eggs into the Jeshua Basket!” It’s not because I was looking for any and all reasons to rebel as some people refer to it as, it just didn’t make any sense to me, nor did I understand. I still really don’t, but I do have a better understanding being older. I do know he died for everyone’s sins too. Just letting you know I know that.
I suppose if you did believe “Jeshua” was your God, it makes perfect sense to worship him. Except when you read a verse from Revelations 22:9 (and I know different Bibles vary in their translation), “but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.” So worshiping Jeshua goes against a message he shared with his followers.
As much as it pains me to write/say this and I know some people don’t like hearing/seeing it, I have seen much hypocrisy promoted by many churches out there. It sucks to say, that I’m not surprised this is just one more thing to add fuel to the fire of that. However, that is NOT what we are discussing here – so let’s try to stay on topic. That’s as much for my sake as anyone else’s.
Getting back on point, yes – Jeshua would be a Demigod because he is the SON of a God. My biggest question though in all this is – when/why did people start to worship him? Is it because of the belief that he is the Messiah (for some, I know that doesn’t apply to all Abrahamic Traditions)? Or is it something else entirely? I know because of the miracles and deeds he performed in life and even after death he can/could be considered a Saint and definitely, of course, the Son of God to boot, but not God, the big driving force itself.
God, Goddess, Spirit – whatever you call the “Big Driving Force that Be” that exists to me as a separate entity of its own complicated design and yet – we are not so different because we each carry shards within us of this Source. Some people refer to this “Shard” that animates us and gives us our unique personalities, quirks and all, as a “Soul” at times. The fact of the matter is – it is STILL what allows us to keep a “Lifeline” of sorts to “Source“.
This goes back to my lessons as a child growing up in my Protestant upbringing – if we were all created in the Creators image and that creator saw fit to fashion us with a shard of themselves and I KNOW I’ve heard people say, especially Christians, “We are all children of God. We were made in his image…,” so if you connect all those pieces together you get *drum-roll*…WE could possibly be Demigods.
Okay, I know that’s a bit going over the line for some people, I didn’t expect to “go there” or “throw that out there” but there it is! I don’t know how or why – but yeah. While I know what I typed there in that last paragraph is very controversial, I also know that I don’t actually consider myself a “DemiGoddess“. It’s more of an interesting musing to ponder and think about.
Likewise, in saying that though – this brings me back to something I make mention of quite often that can most definitely empower us to FEEL like Demigods or DemiGoddesses and that is “The Law of Attraction“. If you use it – and correctly, you know that it works. I know it has improved my life immensely. I bring this up again in regards to our subject because – L.O.A. states, you ultimately become limitless and the possibilities are endless when you let go of narrow-minded thinking and stop putting limitations in your own way.
I feel Spirit/Source/God/Goddess put this in place for us to help us realize our own true and full potential we have to try to create a happier and better life, not only for ourselves – but those around us who inhabit this world with us. I’ve always also said “Belief” and “Faith” are very important and powerful key elements in life as well, which goes hand-in-hand with the L.O.A.. Some people may agree with that and others will strongly disagree, but I do not feel Spirit intentionally put us here to suffer our whole lives! To suffer our whole existence.
Granted, there are some lessons that only pain and suffering can teach us, but I disagree with the idea we are here to suffer constantly on a day-to-day basis, perhaps as those who came before us such as Jeshua and others we may venerate the names and images of. There are many things I feel Jeshua tried to teach us that were very positive by promoting compassion, tolerance, understanding, mutual respect for our fellow-man/woman, kindness, that would help immensely if people actually adopted what he said instead of saying that they DO. Not everyone does. SAYING and DOING two very different things.
Unfortunately, there is still this very obvious “Tug-o-war” going on on this. On the fortunate side though, I’ve met more and more Christians of this mind-set and I’m very grateful and happy for these people (that follow the teachings of Jeshua truly).
Whether or not Jeshua was or was not a Prophet, Messiah, Demigod, Saint, a Magician (Yes some view him as this too), a God, or God in general – is still on for debate and the jury has yet to come back and properly deliberate on their decision for some. However, it is a matter of belief – everyone is different and I feel – you should believe what you like – so long as you do harm to none and try to promote brotherly/sisterly unconditional love.
Even though I do not follow a Christian Path I will tell you, I love and respect Jeshua. As an Ascended Master, I called him even today to help me write this with the utmost care and compassion, if that is not a Testament of mutual respect and tolerance, I don’t know what is.
Thank you for reading to those who stopped by. I know it was a bit of a nerve-wracking ride, but you made it! Thoughts, comments or questions? You know where the reply button is.
~Merry part and merry meet again, blessings, infinite love and gratitude – Namaste~
Special Note to my Friends/Spirit Family: To my friends I know you have never cited any of this to me, forced or pushed your religious beliefs on me. I want you to know I love you and am grateful you are part of my Spirit Family. You have a great deal of respect from me, as I do for you, for loving and respecting me for who I am and allowing the “Live and let live” mentality to persist between us. Thank you! Also thank you for the friendly and healthy religious discussions and debates between us!
