Church - Jesus social club

The church is a social club for Jesus where you pay to listen to a monologue, sing Jesus Jingles, attend brainwashing sessions and do free volunatry work for the Jesus social club. I left it many times till I finally wanted, and got, a divorce from Jesus. When you divorce Jesus and permanently leave the Jesus social club your fellow Jesus social club members no longer want to associate with you.

ORAL TRADITION


An indication how the oral tradition about the historic Jesus of Nazareth was passed down (and distorted) to eventually be recorded in the gospels.

#####################################

John A T Robinson was a New Testament scholar, author and a former Anglican Bishop of Woolwich, England who died on 5th December 1983 at Cambridge. These are words stated during his last supper. Feel free to add your bit to this oral history handed down to me by someone who knew somone who knew someone who said that his great uncle's best friend's daugher had heard her mother's aunt state that she had heard the man outside of Hoyts say these exact words. It is therefore a very reliable source. ...

~~~~~~~~~

On the evening of 4th December 1983 John A T Robinson stated:

Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine
Don't disturb me now I'm reading my bible
Till this evening is this morning life is fine

Always hoped that I'd be a bible scholar
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when I retire I could write my books
So they'll still talk about me when I've died

For all I care this wine could be my blood
For all I care this bread could be my body
If you would remember me when you eat and drink . . .
I must be mad thinking I'll be remembered - yes
I must be out of my head!
Look at your blank faces! My name will mean nothing
Ten minutes after I'm dead!
One of you misquotes me
One of you reinterprets me

What's that in the bread it's gone to my head
Till this evening is this morning life is fine

Will no-one stay awake with me?
Wade? Gladys? Jesus?

LYRICS
VS:

I like other music but I really love rock and roll
Listen to the beat let the feeling take a hold
Feels so right like the sharp blade of a knife
It shines so bright like a missile launched in the night
I like other music but I really love rock and roll

CH:

I like rock and roll and so I say, I like rock and roll
I like rock and roll and so I play, I like rock and roll

I like other music but I really love rock and roll
Listen to the tune let the feeling take a hold
It’s nice and tight like you’re cornered in a fight
It feeds on night like a vampire in full flight
I like other music but I really love rock and roll

I like other music but I really love rock and roll
Listen to the beat let the feeling take a hold
Feels so right like the sharp blade of a knife
It feeds on night like a vampire in full flight
I like other music but I really love rock and roll

Janis Joplin "Mary Jane"

 Bessie Smith

Janis Joplin

Link to song by Janis Joplin "Mary Jane" http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=DFsbrA_buNo  A standard 12 bar blues.

Janis Joplin sang "Mary Jane" before she was famous. The song is credited as being a cover of a Bessie Smith song. That is obviously incorrect.

The usual lyrics stated for the second verse are:
"Oh if a man should look tame now, mean and mature,
They all turn out the same."

The real lyrics are:
"Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe
They all turn out the same"

Bessie Smith died in 1937 so could not have possibly referenced Elizabeth Taylor (born 1932) and Marilyn Monroe (born 1926) who were not famous at te time of Bessie Smith's death.

CORRECT LYRICS

Now when I go to work, I work all day,
Always turns out the same.
When I bring home my hard-earned pay
I spend my money all on Mary Jane.
Mary Jane, Mary Jane, Lord, my Mary Jane.

Oh, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe
They all turn out the same.
'cause they can't do nothing to make a man feel good
Like my old Mary Jane.
Mary Jane, Mary Jane, Lord, my Mary Jane.

Now I walk down the street and I look for a friend
One that can lend me some change.
And he never questions my reason why,
'cause he too loves Mary Jane.
Mary Jane, Mary Jane, Lord, my Mary Jane.

Well, I have known women that wanted no man,
Some that I wanted to play.
But I never knew what happened in this world
Till I met up with Mary Jane,
Mary Jane, Mary Jane, Lord, my Mary Jane.

Oh, when I'm feelin' lonesome and I'm feelin' blue,
There's only one way to change.
Now I walk down the street now lookin' for that man,
One that knows my Mary Jane,
Mary Jane, Mary Jane, Lord, my Mary Jane.

The Jesus Cosmological Argument

The Jesus Cosmological Argument

1. Everything that begins to exist has a cause of its existence.
2. The historic Jesus of Nazareth began to exist as a fertilised egg inside his mother Mary.
3. Therefore, Jesus has a cause of his existence.

If God were not infinite, independent and self-existent, He would not be God.

Jesus is not infinite, independent and self-existent but finite, dependent upon air, nutrition and safety from harm and ceated by the fertilisation of a human egg.

Jesus is therefore not God.

VS:

World is mine, choose my wish
Eating feast from poisoned dish
Mellow love with moonlight kiss
Starlit galaxy, serpent hiss

CH:

I’m intrigued by you

Left here bleeding, lack of care
Wash my tears with your hair
Time grows old, tempting fate
Help me grow for goodness sake

‘Neath the darkened hidden moon
Clouded wind, silver spoon
Desiring gaze, longing look
Apple eaten, caught by hook

Wade the depths of my heart
Unite and blend, don’t tear apart
Soul emotion adoring still
What is empty needs to fill

Unique gift, new surprise
Reflecting life, opening eyes
Beyond knowing you are here
Close as breath, heartbeat clear

Look to sky and look within
Look to future not to sin
Fascinating yet I fear
Oh no, don’t get too near

First Abolish The Customer: 202 Arguments Against Economic Ratonalism


From Bob Ellis "First Abolish The Customer: 202 Arguments Against Economic Rationalism" (Penguin:1998)

... a belief all economic rationalists share - that this decisive, sudden process of sacking people is good for society, or good for the society as a whole. By sacking people in their hundreds of thousands, the theory at its heart asserts, you create employment and stimulate spending. p.4

Land mines, not coal mines.
Land mines make more money. p.20

To compete with slaves we must become slaves ourselves, or something very close to slaves. p.35

An economic rationalist would have sacked Michelangelo ...Joern Utzon ... Charlie Chaplin ... Orson Welles ... J R R Tolkien. pp.42-44

Economic rationalism as a system and democracy as a system are incompatible, ultimately incompatible. And one of them has to go. p.47

The greed of a few hundred thousand shareholders now outweighs ... the need and suffering of five billion ordinary people, with rent to pay, and children to clothe and send to school. ... Some people are as disposable as Kleenex. pp.68-69

For competitive wages read slave wages. p.70

One man's profit is another man's loss. p.72

'The foremost problem now facing a modern economy, ' said Syd Hickman ...' is what do you do with the dumb blokes?' p.88

... why any company's profits should be, theoretically, limitless. Why they cannot, like wages, be pegged. p.92

If it is permissible for human beings to harass and humiliate and ruin other human beings in the name of profit, and to do so without let or fine or hindrance, then it is not a democratic system we are talking of, it is a tyranny. pp. 100-101

If a government can make laws hindering the sale of heroin and tobacco merely because they ruin lives and sometimes ends them, why - as a matter of philosophical debate - cannot they make laws that hinder the evils of economic rationalism? it also ruins lives, and ends them. pp.135-136

[Economic rationalists] will buy up the Apple Corporation and sell of its component songs to Michael Jackson for millions. But they would have never bought Paul McCartney his first guitar. p.150

John Ralston Saul in ... The Unconscious Civilization, reports how employees who have narrowly survived the sack that extinguished their workmates and friends become, as a rule, very nervous, and haggard, and overworked, and uncreative. p. 154

Orwell's Animal Farm ... 'All men are equal, but some are more equal than others.' p.162

One man's surplus is another man's deficit. p. 163

There is always an alternative. p.180

Homer Simpson's words, 'Who, whom? Who benefits, Marge?' p.205

Expendable as Kleenex. This is the matter of which we dare not speak, and now it is said. p.209
