The message of Jesus and the ideas of essenceism
In my studies, I try to create the most innovative look at the existence of God, the spiritual world, eternity in man, as well as the state of our civilization. I found my views difficult to accept by most of the people I know, and especially for the followers of centuries-old religious systems. Perhaps my views are so innovative and difficult to accept that it can be compared to the situation in Israel during the time of Jesus Christ. Of course, I don't mean to compare the scope of what I do with the scope of the work and teaching of the Son of God. Rather, I mean the comparison of the lack of understanding of His teachings at that time, which is similar to the lack of understanding of what I am writing about. The analysis of essenceism shows that the teachings of Jesus were so different from the expectations of the then religious hierarchs that they felt a threat to their position and rejected them entirely. To this day, most Israeli clergy treat Jesus as a revolutionary who tried to overturn the entire national structure of Israel.
Thanks to a lot of experience resulting from participation in new religious movements, I have the opportunity to better assess what happened more than two thousand years ago, because the human psyche has not changed much since then. From the period of the activity of the Son of God, there emerges a figure of someone who is misunderstood by those around him, distant from his loved ones, treated like a fanatic by people from higher social spheres, and completely unaccepted by the religious leaders of the time. The alleged crowds following Jesus were mostly poor people looking for some support and improvement of their health situation. Often they were just onlookers or viewers expecting miracles. A similar situation is happening today with various "messiahs" and religious healers. Moreover, in Jesus' day, political leaders and religious leaders made him a reputation for destroying the social order. His teaching was so alien to society at that time that even his apostles were afraid to support him in public. This is evidenced, for example, by Peter's denial of his knowledge of Jesus. So let's re-analyze those times. I did it by analyzing people's attitudes towards the new religious reformers. I see in this analysis a similar phenomenon that took place more than two thousand years ago.
In this respect, I also analyze my actions leading to the modernization of knowledge about religious concepts important for every human being. For didactic purposes, I made a brief comparison between the main points of Jesus' teaching, which were too difficult for his contemporaries to accept, and the main ideas of essenceism, which are equally difficult to accept in our time.
