The Mythical Jesus: 008: Mark 1:41 Moved With Compassion

Today we talk about compassion.  The conversation centers around how within religious institutions we often frame our effort to work with those outside the tribe as “tolerance”.  We spend time helping us see that Tolerance and compassion are opposites and come from different spaces.   How is tolerance not a Christ-like attribute and how can we decvelop into compassion and a place of love?  How can we grow to hold a ground from which love and empathy and value and understanding flow?

This Podcast utilizes the New Living Translation to take advantage of its contemporary language if for no other reason.  The mission of this podcast is to help listeners explore the deep shift from Ego-Centricity to Cosmic-Centricity while also coming to a deeper appreciation of the Jesus of the New Testament as an incredible example of what that development looks like.

  1. Nice as always.
    Hope it gets a lot of traction beyond the LDS community.
    The secular community is writing Christ off completely.

    It’s hard to speculate the future, but it looks like Christ will be losing influence over the world. Would you agree with this perspective? I mean he is still a dominating presence in our culture but really there is no way to go from the top except down, but will Christ have a more dominant presence?

    At the very least his representation of a kind and merciful lord seems to be more accurate than it was in the past. I think the whole world views God differently than they did before.

    The whole world seems to be moving towards a more compassionate space as we move ahead collectively. Gone are the days when we hated other tribes to death (granted there are still some out there).
