    If they did, they must have done it quite scarcely or subtly because Paul's letters seem to present Jesus in a different perspective than the Gospels. Paul's letters seem to suggest that Jesus was a being to Whom God gave all the powers and chose to be the king of mankind for a certain period of time, with the purpose of reconciling mankind to God, after which Jesus will step back and let God Himself be the king of the world. Paul constantly sends his wishes of "peace" from God The Father and from The Lord Jesus Christ, which would be redundant if God and Jesus were the same person. He never once sends wishes of peace from The Holy Ghost, for some reason.

    On the other hand, the Gospels seem to suggest that Jesus is (part of) God Himself or God incarnate.

    Retards shouldn't be allowed to live
    Homosexuality and transgenderism are mental illnesses
    Instead of seeking asylum and becoming refugees people should rise up against their corrupt governments and try to fix whatever shit hole country they come from. It's called a revolution, try it.

    The more time I spend with humans the more I’m convinced we’re an infection on the earth.

    And the worst of the infection is at the top

    Average humans aren’t bad, but we have a knack for putting useless assholes in charge

    Yup. And we’re what happens when the microbes grow up and develop self importance.

    The universe is unaffected by us, we only torture ourselves and other living things on a tiny rock in the middle of nowhere

    When James Watt invented his steam engine, some historians take that as the starting point of when humans started becoming the dominant species on Earth.

    I have heard of that, but I haven't looked into the relationship of Greek philosophy to Christianity w/ respect to Paul yet. I am trying really hard to find something in the Jewish and Christian experience that is not reducible to the Greek philosophical experience.

    Shortly after finishing Heidegger's lectures on the first three books of Aristotle's Metaphysics, I rewatched the movie Silence, immediately I saw Aristotle's senses of Being as δύναμις and ἐνέργεια in play. If mortals don't have the ability (δύναμις) to accept Christ or not, is there still a question of Christianity? I am hopeful though that is not just going to turn out that there is Jewish philosophy, Christian philosophy, and Greek philosophy, w/ nothing new in the Jewish and/or Christian experiences.

    Also, I am reading through a set of lectures delivered by Dihle on the theory of will in classical antiquity, and he remarks that from the very beginning the Biblical texts and Greek philosophical texts were seen as compatible (there is some famous line that says something like the only difference between Plato and Moses is that he speaks Attic), but then in the 2nd century AD push for an essential difference between the two emerged. But, this push seems somewhat artificial to me. Seneca says: Non pareo deo sed assentior, but isn't this just an obedience to Reason or God as Reason instead of the Will of God like the Jews?

    Help from whom? Mortals who have no idea how we got here, why we're here and what happens after death? I don't know if such clueless creatures could provide help at the present time.

    Science has a pretty good idea how we got here, and the picture is getting more complete every year.
    You are assuming that there is a why. We just are.
    And after death our body decomposes.

    And our brain with it

    Interesting tidbit, apparently when the brain is shutting down, which takes around 5 minutes, we suffer time dilation - so 5 minutes will feel like hundreds of years, and with no external stimuli, or way to communicate, you’re likely to go through dream sequences that seem to last forever
