South Park And Me

Hey folks, Jesus Christ here. Believe it or not, I'm waist deep in planning a Katrina Relief Service Project for next week, so posts will probably be slim to none for a while. That's right, Jesus goes on service project trips. They won't know it's Me though. They will think I'm just some guy helping out.

Regarding South Park, I mostly hate it. Sure, there's social commentary in it so that somewhow must make it relevant, but for every one smart comment on contemeporary society, there's three kids learning that the word "Bitch" is comedy gold. Sometimes the show is funny, but mostly I don't laugh too much at it. And for the record, I would be able to kill Santa Claus in a fight INSTANTLY, no contest. I would step into the ring and simply make his heart explode, done.

That being said, here's an interesting episode of South Park! The below "You Tube" link is to the episode intitled "Trapped In The Closet" which is the episode currently causing all the commotion regarding Chef leaving and Tom Cruise somehow getting Comedy Central to stop airing this episode. You won't find this on cable anytime soon, but God bless the internet! The reason that some people are up in arms about this episode is due to how it goes after Scientology pretty hard. Now, as you could probably guess, I, Jesus Christ, Son of God, Son of Man, Lover of manna, is not a fan of Scientology. Sure, its got its moments, but that's the problem with most religions that leave My story out of it, they mostly all have a lot of "good points" to them, but those "good points" aren't what My dad is looking for. Anyway, this episode is harsh, but a lot of what is said about the history and what is behind the Scientology faith is actually true... thus the South Park social commentary that can sometimes shine through the show. If you got an extra 22 minutes to kill, this is an interesting episode that you are not likely to see anywhere but on the web for a while. Enjoy?

I don't have the time, but we do know here at Fritz, Inc. that Scientology is not a credible belief system 'as is'.

However, we also don't think you're the only way to salvation.

One of your anonymous epistle-writers kinda screwed up. Ask me about the Gospel of John, the Community of the Believer, and the mysterious 'Q' writer.

Otherwise, we dig ya.

Here we go with the 'anonymous epistle-writers kinda screwed up.'

Those other writings were rejected for solid reasons (inconsistency with many other writings, lack of eyewitness accounts of Jesus' life, etc.)

Jesus doesn't leave you an out of Him being a 'good guy' or even just a 'prophet.'

Thanks for sharing the episode, Jesus.

We'll miss you Jesus. But a savior's got to do what a savior's got to do, right? And not for anything, but we don't see L. Ron Hubbard planning a workcamp, now do we?

Daniel...Huh?

I wasn't quite clear on your point. I was merely discussing the Gospel of John, also known as the writer "Q". Reading some further theology (Immanuel Kant and the like), we'll discover something facsinating. John wasn't written until 100 years after the death of Jesus.

It is the only gospel that indicates Jesus as the only way to get to heaven. This is interesting, since the Gospel of John was taken down amongst a very 'select' group of Christians. This particular community needed to explain why Jesus hadn't yet returned as King. They needed something to build on, and so became quite exclusive in that their community was the 'real' one that truly believed in Jesus.

This gospel is the gospel followed most closely by Fundie-Wundies and the like. It's pretty black and white, but that's not the way Jesus or God works. That's why I stick to my theological, ontological, empirical evidence...

Jesus is a good way to get the Truth. But he's not the end all and be all. We're all in this together.

End.

I am the way.

I will decline further argument. But we must accept
all faiths
and realize
each one is as mysterious
and True
as the One Way
that Jesus proclaims.

There are many roads to one location. Some are windy and difficult. Some are straight and narrow. We each make our own way. And the road, as long as we're following SOME path, will get us to the Truth.
