Alright, so we don't even know these were Jesus' teachings... But let's say they actually were. I disagree with the supernatural aspect of Jesus. But as a moral teacher, what do you think of him? Some people say "I dismiss some of the bible and take just some. but I'm a believer" I say heck no. If you dismiss some parts, you are a snobby spoiled brat who is not reasonable enough to understand THERE IS NO REALITY IN THE BIBLE as to connection with "holliness". Anyway....

Here are two teachings of Jesus:

"If someone strikes you, turn the other cheek."

What do you think about it? Do you apply it in your daily life? (even when you are an atheist, you might, not because it is JESUS but because it comes like a natural moral to YOU)

thanks !

More evidence that, as Robert Heinlein said, that Jebus, like most gods, had "the manners and morals of a spoiled child."

Exactly Loren. When I had to read the bible I noticed god had a bad temper, huge ego  and anger issues (just to cite a few things of course). Everything was "me me me".

Jesus might have been an interesting guy.

Who knows ? The new testament is posthumous and is not regarded as an historical document by ancient historians. So, when you quote it you are just quoting nonsense.

Therefore, the quote;

"If someone strikes you, turn the other cheek."

may or may not be attributable to Jesus. Anyway, I think it's poor advice unless you are a sado-masochist or a loser.


Right Napoleon. I actually am not really sure jesus actually existed or is just a myth.

Hi Steph, I think Jesus existed and there is also the myth of Jesus which Christians purport to believe in.

The reason being that ancient historians have very little if no credible documentation to go by and often only archeological, circumstantial or remote evidence on which to draw conclusions.

Do ancient historians attempt to interpret unwritten history ? I think so.

Jesus being a teacher of morals is questionable if not absurd.  Loren, Scott and others gave good examples of the inconsistency of Jesus's own morality. For two millennia Christians have used the Old Testament and the teachings of Christ to justify the Crusades, the Inquisition, witch hunts, and slavery. Catholics and Protestants have killed and continue to kill each other to this day. Using the Old or New Testament or any holy book as a basis for human morality is the biggest scam ever perpetrated on the human race.

This Atheist Nexus video captures my opinion of Jesus and his teachings nicely. Epic God Fail
