“Who am I?” – A perspective from the Abrahamic religions – Part 3

92. No Jew has ever dared to blame Yahweh for not keeping his part of the covenant that had caused deprivation and persecution for over 600 years.

93. Such has been the enduring faith of a Jew in Yehwe. He could never betray his Lord god Yehwe to revolt against him like angel Lucifer (devil) did.

94. The Jews endured and never repudiated their religion that could have resulted in atheism.

95. Such attempt had to wait for another 1800 years for the two Jews – Feurbaugh an Marx – to appear on the scene in far off Germany to preach godless atheism.

96. Less revolutionary yet quite radical attempt was by Jesus who reposed faith on Yahweh and yet claiming that everyone has an everlasting soul!

97. The idea of the soul returning to Yehwe was put an end to by Jesus. “God gave me the soul and the soul is mine and I am the soul.” was his idea.

98. This released the INDIVIDUAL from the ‘collective’ that Jews claimed as a nation to which alone every Jew is bound to.

99. This was truly a treasonous attempt to dismember the nation and naturally the Jews were aghast at Jesus and disowned him.

100. Jews despised Jesus for what he did was nothing short of complete betrayal. Jesus robbed me, a Jew, of my very being, my very swaroopam as a Jew.

101. Jesus did not criticize Yahweh for not keeping his part of the covenant but the Jews for their neglect of 10 commandments.

102. Jesus attributed the neglect of the Jews to obey the commandments to the work of ‘original sin’.

103. Yet again the idea of ‘original sin’ was a daring invention of Jesus to assert his new idea.

104. By his death he ‘cleanses’ the original sin thus giving each one a chance to redeem himself by sticking to the faith and showing loyalty to the redeemer.

105. By the logic of everlasting soul Jesus contended that those who stick to him go to heaven, others to hell.

106. Jesus asserted that he is the son of god and he is here to redeem the souls by a covenant with the God that by his death he absolves the sin of the believer.

107. King Constantine who made Christianity a state religion became a Christian only at his deathbed to ensure he is sin- free!

108. It is to the credit of Jesus Christ who gave a lasting identity to each individual which was denied in Judaism.

109. By this single act of betrayal of the Jews Jesus became a hero to the gentiles who yearned for an impartial Yahweh because Jesus provided them with one.

110. There is yet another group among these gentiles who kept coming up again and again under different names, such as Kabbalah, the Cathars, the Druze, the Rosicrucians and many more.

111. They were thrilled at the idea of an everlasting soul with which they neither wanted to go to hell nor even heaven but come back to earth to claim all those they have missed enjoying!

112. There are references in the new testament that people asked Jesus about coming back but he could not answer them at all but deflected.

113. There are fanciful accounts spread among Hindus that Jesus came to India and stayed for a long time.

114. Such is an attempt to make Jesus an acceptable character even though Christianity per se is a diametrical opposite of our Dharma.

115. If he had really been in India he would have certainly understood the idea of karma and reincarnaion that is a central point of our Dharma.

116. The very fact Jesus could not answer questions on reincarnation is proof enough that he never came anywhere near India.

117. Jesus, it must be admitted, became relevant only in the context of the constant defeat of the Jewish people in the hands of gentiles.

118. Yet Jesus Christ became irrelevant to the Jews who refused to give up on Judaism. And they persevered.

119. In my estimation the Jews might even outlive the Christians one day as Christianity is on the decline now.

120. Let’s now compare and contrast between Judaism and Christianity.

121. In Judaism Yahweh is all powerful and it is Yahweh’s game from the beginning to the end. This idea is not changed in Christianity.

122. Humans are Yehwe’s fancy plaything. Humans are created, given the rules of the game in 10 commandments and replaced when worn out.

123. This idea also remains unchanged in Christianity. I as a Christian have to obey the 10 commandments.

124. Humans never exited before their life on earth. This is also true with Christianity.

125. Humans never have an existence after death is an obvious fact in Judaism. But the idea of everlasting soul changes this in Christianity.

126. While Yehwe has no beginning and no end while I as a human has a beginning and an end makes Yahwe very powerful in relation to me.

127. With an everlasting soul in Christianity, if there is a chance that I can keep coming back as human then I can easily repudiate Yehwe as needless to me.

128. So in the Council of Nicea in 315 AD the idea of reincarnation was quelled and the belief that the soul either goes to hell or heaven was firmly planted.

129. You are not coming back, you are going to hell and you you need a redeemer Jesus Christ is the message.

130. Upon death of the body, the ‘sinned’ ones go to hell to rot and the chosen ones go to heaven to live with Yahweh!

131. By the way in the Council of Nicea and before it and after it those having a differing view were simply put to death! This was going on for a few centuries.

131. The worst ones were the inquisition and the holocaust.

132. In Judaism there was a covenant on the part of Yahweh to protect the nation of Israel.

133. That part is singularly absent in Christianity as the congregation is now spread all over the world.

134. In Christian idea the world is still a place for you to run amok using your free-will, no fear of sin as long as you are a Christian.

135. Vhowever St. Augustine & Calvin had laid down that Total Depravity is the nature of man and he is destined to hell only and ‘god’ has destined chosen ones to come to live with him in heaven.

136. Thus the partiality of the Jewish Yehwe finds expression and reincarnation in the Christian God the Father!
