Amphiist 16: Jews, Jesus and the Atonement

· Philosophy, Politics, Religion

There are many sides fighting to influence our world view

We need to listen to all of them (free speech)

Including what the mainstream media refuses to cover

The rest of us are entitled to our perspectives:

Shia Muslims, men’s right activists, socialists, etc.

Amphiist is a Greek word meaning looking at both sides

Mainstream media perspective

The mainstream media will never go into depth about the Jewish Question. In a way, that shows a very clear perspective. It’s possible that the reason behind this is that they don’t want any negativity surrounding the Jews because it might encourage hate speech, or worse, violence. If a group of people have been victims of a Holocaust, it’s understandable that they want to avoid any circumstances which might encourage such a tragedy.

The Other Side

 

There are some people on Twitter who spend a lot of time naming the Jew. They receive a lot of negativity due to this, because they are called anti-Semites. However, there is one issue that I haven’t seen addressed. If Jesus really did atone for all of humankind’s sins, then this is a gift without which we would all perish. Shia Muslims believe that Jesus was a messenger of God, but not that he is the literal son of God, or God in the flesh on earth. They don’t believe that he died on the cross; they feel that he was replaced by someone else, and protected. But let’s assume for a moment that the Atonement did actually happen. If it’s true that Jesus died so that we could all live in heaven with God for eternity, then it’s the most fundamental event that’s ever occurred. So if the Jews did kill Jesus, then it raises new questions about the gratitude we should feel for Jews, not because we want violence against Jesus, but because of the atonement which resulted.

 

An analogy is the part Lucifer played in the war in heaven that the Bible tells us about. If the war in heaven had to happen so that people could be tested to see if we would choose Lucifer or God, then isn’t Lucifer a necessary part of the heavenly plan? And if so, then why should he be punished if he helps the plan reach fruition? It’s a knotty problem that no one has been able to solve
