Benedict XVI the Pope versus Jesus the Rebel



Notice the simple poor clothes of Jesus the Rebel as he sits on the crude soil.

Benedict XVI Humpty Dumpty sits on his Infallible Throne -- with GAY image makeover by GAY Zeffirelli

Look at the billionnaire Pope Benedict XVI attires and golden throne!

No wonder Benedict XVI is completely out-of-touch with reality and the world because he wallows in the lap of luxury with his Opus Dei eunuchs and his golden throne rivals that of Queen Elizabeth and the royals of Europe. What does he care about SNAP and the thousands of victims of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army?

But the JESUIT priest JOHN DEAR is a real follower of Christ

Jesus the Rebel: Bearer of God's Peace and Justice

Jesus the Rebel explores the life of Jesus from the perspective of active nonviolence, and includes stories from John Dear's own journey to oppose war and violence and promote Jesus' way of peace and nonviolence. With over thirty chapters, it reflects on the peacemaking side of Jesus' life, in a variety of stories, from his long fast in the desert and his first public speaking event, to the raising of Lazarus, the last supper, his execution and resurrection. The foreword is by longtime peacemaker Daniel Berrigan.

"John Dear has the gift to capture the social gospel as Jesus proclaimed it. I highly recommend this book. He makes the Gospels come alive."

--J. Christoph Arnold,
Bruderhof

"This is a challenging book. Scripturally based, it calls each of us to live by the truth, the law of love. Dear invites us to commit our lives seriously to the joyous, costly, discipleship of Jesus."

--Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate,
Northern Ireland

"If you want to learn how to eat the fire of God's nonviolent and truthful love that is justice and peace for all, come chew on these words of God and become a friend of Jesus the rebel."

--Megan McKenna,
story-teller and author

JESUS was NEVER a Christian

The term 'Christian' was not even coined until the days of Paul, about 3 decades after Jesus walked the earth a man.

Jesus was NEVER a Christian, but he was a social justice, radical revolutionary Palestinian devout Jewish road warrior who rose up and challenged the job security of the Temple authorities by teaching the people they did NOT need to pay the priests for ritual baths or sacrificing livestock to be OK with God; for God already LOVED them just as they were:

Sinners, poor, diseased, outcasts, widows, orphans, refugees and prisoners all living under Roman Military Occupation.

What got Jesus crucified was disturbing the status quo of the Roman Occupying Forces of his time, by teaching the subversive concept that Caesar only had power because God allowed it and that God preferred the humble sinner, the poor, diseased, outcasts, widows, orphans, refugees and prisoners all living under Roman Occupation above the elite and arrogant.

The early followers and lovers of Jesus were called members of THE WAY-being THE WAY he taught one should be; Nonviolent, a Peacemaker and one who did the will of the Father .

"What does God require? He has told you o'man! Be just, be merciful, and walk humbly with your Lord." -Micah 6:8

Jesus remained NONVIOLENT and forgiving even while being mocked, whipped and nailed to a cross and he promised that it is the Peacemakers who are the children of God, not the peace-talkers.

2,000 years ago The Cross had NO symbolic religious meaning.

When Jesus said: "Pick up your cross and follow me."

He was issuing a POLITICAL statement, for the main roads in Jerusalem were lined with crucified agitators, rebels, dissidents and any others who disturbed the status quo of the Roman Occupying Forces.
