Just a few weeks ago I started the process of writing a manuscript entitled My Search for Jesus the Anarchist and the Commonweal of Love, which will integrate some of the writings I have posted on this blog. I also thought about the title Jesus the Agitator, because this title captures well his prophetic message and activist stance.

Citing that book, though, with all of the other things it endorses, to advance a libertarian philosophy strikes me as unjustifiable. Then again, before they went all pacifist the anabaptists were more anarchist, in my book, than many who have been granted that title.

Even if god is "in all of us," he still gets to sit behind the steering wheel. Meher Baba preached this and other spiritualists have too. But if one is a Christian, they must submit to that personal piece or representation of God--Christ incarnate.
To eschew submission to him and his teachings is to cease being a Christian. To put the onus back on you: But Jesus is God, there is only one God in Christianity, not two or three. When the divine became man, man became divine. This is not a fringe theology, but the heart of Christianity.
The myth of the Garden of Eden is also about the same thing. In it humans gained the divine knowlede right and wrong at the cost of our animal simplicity and happiness. Submit to righteousness, which is the will of God that is within you.
At some point, every Christian arrives at a crossroads. Every time he sins, he is consciously separating himself from the God within him.
Or, put another way, he is acting on non-religious desires instead of religious ones.A Case Study Analysis of the Impact Peer Coaching Has on Assisting First and Third Grade Teachers in the Implementation of Portfolio Assessment., Lila D.

Do you think it's possible that jesus was a time traveller and his miracles or "magic" was just some "sufficiently advanced technology" from the future?
I don't deny that it's our nature to see things as a cost-benefit analysis but on what level is for each to determine. Contrary to anarchist principles people tend to be rather animalic.
