The Modern Golden Calf

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on April 4, 2010


It is easter. Once, it was a day to celebrate springtime, the renewal of life after the chilly winter. Then, some people who take their myths literally came into control. The story of the day is of an avatar ( G-d become man), who died, and then rose from the grave.

Not only do they believe the story, but they also believe that this belief allows them to live forever. PG does not agree, and would appreciate the Jesus Worshipers a lot more if they kept their ideas to themselves. Sad to say, the believers like to talk about their beliefs. Many seem to think that the louder they talk, the more true the belief.

In the 2100 years since his life and reputed rebirth, Jesus has become quite the cult of personality. Many feel that the current Jesus has almost nothing to do with the historic Jesus. PG agrees with this view, that Jesus is a modern day golden calf, a idol created by man. The best way to learn about Jesus is through the words and deeds of his believers.
