“The Passion”, Soul Food for Fat, Stupid Religionists

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things” (Romans 1:18-23)



February 19, 2004 – When Jesus Christ walked the earth; mankind came face to face with the incorruptible God of creation. But they would not have Him or glorify Him as God. The Light shined in the darkness, and the darkness comprehended Him not (John 1:5). “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not” (John 1:10-11).



Jesus Christ? Or an image of Jesus Christ?



When the real Jesus humbled Himself in order to meet with man, the whole world did not gather to see him in plush theatres, but in fact,



“The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done” (Acts 4:26-28).



The Kings of the world, the Gentiles and the people of Israel (uh… that’s everyone by the way) gathered together to crucify Jesus Christ, while He still walked among them as the “fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Col. 2:9), thus fulfilling the prophecy that said:



“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us” (Psalms 2:1-3).



You see, when they knew God, they glorified Him NOT as God. They glorified Him not at all.



Get this, and get it straight…



When God in the flesh, the authentic, 3D, Jesus Christ of Nazareth really and truly walked the earth and met with religious men… THEY CRUCIFIED HIM… now they sell tickets to see it.



Now we are confronted with a 2D image of “the christ” who is not only NOT GOD, but who was formed in the mind of a radical Papist, whose words were translated by a Jesuit priest, and who is being pushed by the marketing arm of the largest profit-making religious system in the world… and we are told to expect that this false image of “christ” will convert men to the real Christ, who was crucified by the same religious men who are selling the false “christ”?



Hmmmm.



The Marketing of the Honkey Christ



It was prophesied that these antichrists would eventually form an image of God out of their own imaginations; an image and likeness of Him made after the manner of corruptible man. For centuries, idolaters have painted an image of Jesus that cannot be correct. They turned the humble, non-descript middle-eastern Messiah into a long-haired, blue-eyed, gentile Jesus; an image formed from the depths of their own fallen natures. They pushed this Jesus in magazines and study materials, in coffee shops and supermarkets. They painted him into their Bibles, and adorned their walls with him. They formed icons and talismans out of a concocted picture they dreamed up in their minds. They put his face on calendars and bookmarks; they pushed this white, blue-eyed, hippy Jesus in schools and prisons. Mankind’s foolish, religious heart has been so darkened that he has gone the way of Antichrist; that foul villain who the Bible predicts would someday erect an image that the whole world would think is really God.



“Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee” (Deut. 4:23).



Fallen man will not have God as God; they will not have the spiritual reality. Instead, they will always make an image after the vanity of their own imaginations. They love images, you see, because images do not judge; images do not condemn. It is the inevitable goal of the fallen, religious mind, to make and have an image in order to have some type of relationship with “god”. It has always been this way.



In the desert of real history, religious man always rejected the real God in favor of God’s they made themselves:



“They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt” (Exodus 32:8).



When these men have the chance to meet with the real God, they will not do it:
