Jesus Upside Down

Note: No video weekend today because I am utterly sick this weekend and had a tough week. So, here is a little article I drafted some time ago:

A weird but not uncommon mentality flaw (typically boosted and imposed by those in power) is: loving and admiring the rich, and despising the poor. This society warp has been around for some time. Even Jesus complained about it according to the Bible, making it pretty long ago by now. This is so badly wrong. We humans should always care about ALL humans (or even beyond!). And the poor are never poor by their own design but by the design from the rich. (And the rich have always (mis-)used religion to oppress the poor and protect their own selfish interests.

It’s ironic when people claim hat it is in fact very difficult for a rich person to live a virtuous life. It is actually much much easier for rich people to live virtuous lives, if they only tried. They cpulf gove away so much stolen wealth or even use it to set up stabilizing institutions. But they never do. I still have to meet one who does; hence Jesus’ promise that the rich will never go to heaven.

There is a nice comment I came across online (on dailykos, which is a platform I rarely look into because it so so DNC-allied; in other words allied with a corrupt elite; blasting Sanders in 2016 and 2020… still, sometimes (very rarely) good folks show up there). Here is the quote:

Jesus was asked by a virtuous rich man what ELSE he could do as he obeyed all the commandments. Jesus told the man the only thing the man needed to do was to sell everything he had and give it to the poor and then, “…come and follow me…” When the rich man refused to give up his riches, Jesus watched the man walk away in tears because the man was so tied to his comforts he could not give them up. Then Jesus turned to the crowd and commented, “Truly, it is harder for a rich man to enter the gates of heaven than for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle….” (Matthew 19:16-25).

Yes the next passage (Matt 19:26) is about Jesus’ apostles being astonished when he said that, and his comment that “with God all things are possible…” but again you have to understand it in the context of the times ~ and actually our times as well.

There is a mistaken belief that if you are rich than somehow God loves you more than poor people. This is something the rich hold over others’ heads with all three of these religions in spite of the very strict and quite clear mandate and morals that all say “You SHARE.”

I suspect the man referred to nowadays as Jesus having been one of history’s greatest grassroots activists for solidarity and societal justice, quickly executed by the criminal lords, and then repainted by wannabe lords (preachers / church masters) in alignment with the already existing lords into an alleged promoter for a god and angels and an afterlife. Real Christians would fight for democracy and a no rich and no poor egalitarian society. But where are they nowadays? Most supposed Christians now align themselves with the Hell on Earth power and wealth pyramid, making them Anti-Christians actually. So sad.
