The Sermon on the Mount, the Parable of the Prodigal Son, the Parable of the Good Samaritan, and the bit about "Inasmuchas you have done it (or not done it) to the least of my brothers and sisters, you have done it (or not done it) unto me," are all you need to know about Jesus. They are all you need to know about how to live your life in relationship with other people. They are all the Bible you need. They are all the religion you need. They are Jesus without the theology (doctrine, dogma, creeds, beliefs). All of which were inventions of the church to keep the church going-- and it has kept going very well-- which began with the Council of Nicaea in 325 consolidating the Church of the Holy Roman Empire, initiating the persecutions and the burnings at the stake that created Christian Theology, the Virgin Birth, Sin, Redemption, Heaven and Hell and all the rest. The Church is the Church of Oppression. It is the Church of the Oppressors. It is the polar extreme of who Jesus was and what Jesus was about-- "breaking down the dividing walls and making us all one." Oneness is what we are to be about. Ours is the middle way between the way on the right and the way on the left. Between Yin and Yang. Between the dualities of consciousness and lived reality. We are to integrate the opposites, dance with the contradictions, embrace the dichotomies, and bear the pain of it all in bringing it together, incarnating/expressing/exhibiting "Thou Art That" in our way with ourselves, each other, and all things, and living our way into the Mystery of the Union at the Heart of Life and Being, by living "This, too! This, Too!" in each situation as it arises all our life long. Starting right here right now.
