| The Cosmic Ant Farm Of Jesus
Used by permission, from the Agnostic Review of Christianity website
One question that philosophers have pondered for thousands of years concerns itself with the purpose of life.
Many answers to this question have been proposed down through the ages and some have expressed themselves in the form of dogmatic religions.
For Trinity believing fundamentalist Christians, there is only one answer.
The all-knowing, all powerful creator behind everything in the universe is the Bible God, and Jesus is God.
The Catholic believer, Saint Ignatius, generally summed up the Christian position for the purpose of life on earth when he declared that humanity was created to praise and serve God, adding that the other things on earth were created for man to use in that goal.
In detective or spy novels, a truth seeking sleuth often looks high and low for an elusive "Mr. Big", who is the mastermind behind the events in the story.
Christianity loudly claims that it has exclusive rights to the truth regarding this issue (via the Holy Bible), and the Christian version of "Mr. Big" is Jesus the God, who is responsible for all of creation (Col 1:16).
An ant farm is a form of manipulated reality where ants are placed into an environment that's surrounded by glass or clear plastic. The human owner or creator of the ant farm then observes the lives of the ants as they tunnel, search for food, fight with other ants, etc.
An owner looking for gratification or entertainment may add elements to the farm or disrupt the farm so the ants can provide more interesting viewing. An owner may take rival tribes of ants, put them together in the farm, limit the food supply and watch as the ants compete to expand their interests and secure the limited resources of the farm for themselves.
In essence, the owner is a type of God that controls the farm in ways that provide entertainment.
If Trinitarian Christianity is true, then earth is very much like an ant farm or game with a script which is written in advance by the creator God called Jesus.
The ant farm owner's game manual, also known as the Christian Holy Bible, makes it clear that God's will and purpose supersedes all other considerations.
Having made known unto us (Christians) the mystery of his (God's) will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
As the text states, Christians know the mystery of God's will and were predestined by God.
Everything is implied to be predestined because God, who is Jesus, works all things after the counsel of his own will and according to his good pleasure.
Earth's history and future is actually a scripted drama which has already been written by Jesus the God.
This scripture also renders false the very popular Christian advertising claim that God gave humanity "free-will".
Jesus the God also instructed his disciples on how they should pray to him.
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Whose "will" is done? The will of Jesus the God naturally.
Jesus is the one calling the shots and writing the script for the universe. As the words from a popular Christian song for children testify: "He's got the whole world in his hands." Since Jesus is God, any verses which speak of God also refer directly to Jesus.
All the standard Christian talk about the Devil being an out of control troublemaker is simply contrived drama.
Jesus the supremely powerful God works out all things according to his plans, and his script on earth calls for a character called "The Devil" to generate drama and suspense for this staged cosmic play.
Most dramatic movies call for a character that wears a black hat or represents "dark" and "evil" thoughts.
Judas was another one of these stage players whose role was to act out the part of betrayer in the script.
As the scripture states (John 17:12), Judas was doomed to destruction so that prophecy would be fulfilled.
Jesus also declared that fulfilling a planned script had priority over all other concerns.
Then said he(Jesus) unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
Since Jesus the God wrote the script, humans and all other life forms are essentially stage props he uses to act out the drama.
Christianity has spent millions of dollars carefully promoting the fluffy "Prince of Peace" image of Jesus the God.
Children's Bibles usually have pictures of a humble, servant like Jesus sitting with little children or comforting troubled people.
The hype and spin extends well beyond this example and this candy coated image of Jesus has been so promoted and advertised to the world that it simply permeates society.
An often quoted verse used to reinforce this "gentle Jesus" image follows:
But I (Jesus) say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
While this certainly does sound peaceful and fluffy, it doesn't quite cover his other Godly sayings and actions that are found elsewhere in the Bible.
In the cosmic script that Jesus the God wrote for earth, Jesus wanted his name to be proclaimed to the world through conquest, miracles, and killings.
Jesus the God has no trouble using some of his human stage props as vehicles for his glorification.
The Pharaoh of Egypt is an example.
And in very deed for this cause have I (Jesus the God) raised thee (Pharaoh) up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.
According to Jesus, he raised Pharaoh up so that he could be used to promote the power and name of Jesus throughout the earth. This glorification process also involved killing the firstborn children of Egypt, but in the grand scheme of things they can be considered collateral damage.
This use of Pharaoh required that Jesus manipulate Pharaoh by making him stubborn.
And I (Jesus) will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.
The more stubborn Pharaoh is, the more miracles and power are needed to make him change his mind.
Jesus then repeatedly manipulates his human subject with ease.
And the LORD Jesus hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD Jesus had spoken unto Moses.
More examples of Jesus hardening Pharaoh's heart follow:
But the LORD Jesus hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.
And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the LORD Jesus hardened Pharaoh's heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.
This is not an isolated incident of manipulation on the part of Jesus the God.
The script Jesus wrote for humanity often calls for the mass killing of men, women, and children.
But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for the LORD Jesus thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as appeareth this day.
Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Jahaz.
And the LORD Jesus our God delivered him before us; and we smote him, and his sons, and all his people.
And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain:
Similar mass killings were performed in 60 other cities as outlined in Deut 3:3-6. Jesus had little trouble manipulating the hearts of other kings as he delivered up the enemy so that his followers could annihilate them.
And we (God's people) utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.
Jesus the God was never shy about his agenda, even when he was talking about peace and forgiveness.
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
The cycle of warfare and conflict has been repeated over and over for thousands of years and it surely does add intense drama to the cosmic game that Jesus the God has concocted.
However, the popular fluffy version of sweet Jesus dissolves under the weight of Biblical evidence showing that he likes lots of dark drama and violence in his movie script.
For those hoping that Jesus the God may have changed into a kinder, gentler version of himself over time, the
Holy Bible throws cold water on such wishful thinking.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
An area of particular concern for modern times is the issue of nations who may have weapons of mass destruction.
While this receives lots of ink and soundtrack in the news media and in the speeches of government officials, this issue shouldn't be of any real concern for any Bible believing Christians.
Any nation that has Jesus on it's side has nothing to fear from anyone.
Jesus the God is an expert on weapons of mass destruction as he uses them himself.
The arsenal of Jesus the God is filled to the brim with weapons that easily kill humans as if they were insects being eliminated by an exterminator.
Jesus the God uses cosmic blasts of fire and brimstone to kill those who displease him.
Then the LORD Jesus rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD Jesus out of heaven;
Upon the wicked he (Jesus) shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
2 Kings 1:12
And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of Jesus the God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of Jesus the God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD Jesus: and the LORD Jesus heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the LORD Jesus burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.
Jesus the God also uses sound waves to destroy the fortifications of his enemies so that his followers can more easily kill them.
So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.
Jesus the God also uses biological weapons and germ warfare on his enemies.
2 Sam 24:15
So the LORD Jesus sent a pestilence upon Israel from the morning even to the time appointed: and there died of the people from Dan even to Beersheba seventy thousand men.
And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD Jesus will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
Jesus the God uses seismic underground "bombs" to create lethal sinkholes under his enemies.
And it came to pass, as he(Moses) had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:
And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.
They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.
Sometimes Jesus will use more than one weapon at the same event.
In this case, the seismic earth sinkholes were quickly followed with fire from Jesus.
And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.
And there came out a fire from the LORD Jesus, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.
Jesus the God used a cosmic water weapon to flood the entire earth and drown those that displeased him.
And the LORD Jesus said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life,
from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.
Jesus the God will also simply kill things by "smiting" them with an undisclosed weapon of mass destruction.
For I (Jesus the God) will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD Jesus.
And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
Or Jesus the God may send one of his drones to do the killing,
2 Kings 19:35
And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD Jesus went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand (185,000): and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.
Jesus will also use his drones later on in the movie as well.
Matt 13: 41-42
The Son of man( also known as Jesus) shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Jesus the God actively helps his followers kill others by using the ultimate "smart bomb", a missile guided by the very mind of Almighty God himself.
Jesus used these weapons extensively in the Joshua lead campaigns to eliminate threats to national security, to free heathens from themselves, and secure the national interests of the nation that God blessed.
And the LORD Jesus said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee.
Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from Gilgal all night.
And the LORD Jesus discomfited them before Israel, and slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way that goeth up to Bethhoron, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah.
And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD (Jesus) cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.
War, killing, and the use of weapons of mass destruction will be employed by Jesus the God when he makes another one of his cameo appearances in his own movie.
Jesus the God not only writes the script, he makes guest appearances starring as a Savior.
In the next act, Jesus the God will dress in clothes dipped in blood, will have his drones with him, and will kill people with a sword that comes out of his mouth, and will then rule the survivors with a rod of iron.
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he (Jesus) that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
And out of his (Jesus) mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
After this first dramatic killing spree, invitations will be sent out for a great supper party where the flesh of the dead will be eaten, hosted by Jesus the God.
Anyone not killed in the first attack will then die when Jesus the God opens his mouth again to use the sword of death that he keeps in there.
And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God Jesus;
That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
And the remnant were slain with the sword of him (Jesus) that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
Jesus the God, like any good movie script writer, also likes to string his followers along, keeping them in suspense.
Over 1,900 years ago, Jesus promised to quickly make another appearance to bring an end to the game.
And, behold, I (Jesus) come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
What's a little false prophecy if it's in the name of entertainment?
As the cartoon character Porky Pig would say, That's all folks!
Christian churches, television industries, and preachers have made millions of dollars selling books and tapes to an often terrified audience, claiming that only they have the "truth" about the great cosmic game and the purpose of life.
Christianity attempts to convince society that in order to understand the great cosmic game, people need to seek out qualified Christian teachers who are experts on everything from prophecy to the rapture.
The commonly advertised image of Jesus as the Prince of Peace and the only Savior of humanity is all part of a well polished hype and spin campaign, designed to keep the money and profits rolling in.
If Jesus really is God and if the Bible really is his word, then it's all a contrived game, written and controlled by Jesus for his own glorification and entertainment.
