My mother had forced me into Christian Sunday School to get rid of me and all my questions. So my questions turned to the Sunday School teacher who very well could be classified as a theologian in his own right. He certainly knew both what Methodology was and Classification of subjects.
The more I read the Bible the least I understood it. We had many Bibles in our home in many languages. I particularly enjoyed looking at the pictures. They were horrifying scenes of the Last Days, of Judgment, of endless wars, and sometimes of a sweet Jesus Christ.
We were instructed at the Sunday School we must not steal. The theme came over and over again. Yet I looked at the pictures and they showed the Conquest of Canaan (Deuteronomy 6:10, 11). But that was not stealing at all.
In fact it came out that it was our Salvation because through the stealing of land Jesus Christ would be born in the Promised Land to save mankind and bring them to heaven. And to Hell for those who refused him.
A pivotal argument was also that, ´´thanks to the stealing of the Promised Land´´, we got the Bible, and without the Bible none would be saved. Because this was so important everything was forgotten about stealing and now put their soul and mind on salvation of the soul. Ethics out! Salvation in!
That turns me to John 10:8 which states that all those before Christ Jesus were thieves and plunderers. Which means Abraham, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, and all the rest of the crowd were in fact thieves and plunderers. And for the first time the Bible did make sense. The very cluster of wine the Jewish conquistadors took in entering the Promised Land of Canaan were stolen goods. Apostle Paul says he was a thief yet admonished Christians not to steal. ´´Don´t do as I do, but do as I have told you´´.
Well, isn´t Marianne Williamson´s interpretation of stealing much more sensible: One could call it Bernard Mandewille´s Surprise. Mandeville was an author who stated all such crimes were beneficial for the society.
Think of it: no locks on doors would hardly be needed, no insurances against thievery or Pyromaniac attacks would be needed, no surveillance cameras necessary, no guard in guarding homes and edifices. No Police. Few doctors as violence would be done away with. Think of all the people out of work! We already have enough of them because of Coronavirus.
And finally peace would reign! Can we afford it? Even I would suffer with all my writing about deception, fraud, fakes, political thefts, hoaxes. How much time have I not spent on explaining the endless of fakes of the Anne Frank Diary and the Anne Frank Drug Cult?
Surely the Marianne Williamson affair brings up a hornet´s nest. And if it wasn´t for, that we go to Church to be good people, if we start to realize that isn´t how the world is run. Everything is braced for more wars, more theft, and more violence. Because it is big business. Bernard Mandeville was right after all. Theft, stealing, robbery, mugging, the whole Kahal and Mafia lot, are indeed beneficial.
And in America, if you can shoot dead some more black people it makes the newspapers run and the TV giving new twists to the shooting. Never has crime been so useful, so good, so beneficial. Thank you Bernard Mandeville for opening our eyes to facts and not to the dreams of the pies in the sky.
