Jesus Christ (aka) Yeshua HaMashiah
Central Cortex Of The Brain
If pride influences one’s choices in the central cortex of the brain; and one found pleasure in that pride, as in supremacist sentiments, then it would be very difficult, if not completely impossible to alter one’s way of thinking. Supremacy works not only on trashing others, but hating anything else, but self. Into this sentiment, especially the German people gave in; during the Nazi times. It’s just too pleasurable to give it up.
In USA this addiction to supremacy is also evident, from KKK to skinheads and other trashy elements, but these are those who let their sentiments out. There are many others who keep it all bottled up inside, but let it all out only in politics.
Wisdom is never superior for it works on the principle of sharing and hence education. It does not mean that only one is wise while others must sit quietly and listen.
[John 13:12-16] Do you know what I have done to you? You call Me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am. If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him. (Speaking of God the Father who sent His firstborn Son.)
Correlate it with this verse: [John 14:28] I go to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
This book opens up many truths that were buried in sands of religion and heavy indoctrination.
Jesus was very humble and He wanted us to have His glory and the same oneness with the Father He had (John 17). He wanted us to do even greater works than He had done (John 14:12).
And finally He said this: [Luke 6:40] A blind man cannot guide a blind man, can he? Will they not both fall into a pit? A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher.
So there comes an arrival and one can even become greater than his or her teacher.
If one manages to arrive at this momentous stance and actually be willing to tear down the old structures and is ready to build a new then that would be indeed a great achievement. However, that can only happen when one recognizes the self-made prison and hates it.
Humility is nothing more than making oneself into a hollow empty vessel thus being readied to be filled with something better and higher than what one had before. Only then one would open a door to God’s Spirit in order to go further; only then God’s Spirit has the permission to bring one into the blessed freedom of which Jesus spoke in John 8.
This was happening when Jesus conversed with those proud scribes and teachers of the Law. They could not come down from their lofty seats of supremacy, much less acknowledge the superiority of Jesus’ sayings and reason, yet they saw it as one superiority against another. A threat. That’s sad, because it is all very much subjective and a self-defined way of thinking.
Jesus was pushing their buttons until their cannons fired off. They accused Jesus of being a Samaritan and having a demon (John 8:48), of being a charlatan and of making Himself to be God (John 10:31-34) while in their own subjective estimation He was merely a man. They accused Him of casting out demons (like they did through their special techniques) through a Beelzebub (Luke 11:15). At first Jesus reasoned with them, and even went on a defensive, but then He dropped it altogether and left them alone.
His disciples said, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this statement?” (Matthew 15:12-14) Jesus had enough of those useless theological squabbles, “But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted. Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”
Now, that was not nice, was it? There comes a time when one leaves alone those ‘stuck in their own’ - although there is nothing of our own. One moves on to even a brighter light. A self-made theological God is only a god.
