The Paradox of Christ

[Continued from the previous Post – More Time Travel]

Multiple Crucifixions

     Before the conclusion of Dr. Christine Thompson’s lecture, she emphasized the crucifixion of Jesus.

     Thompson: “Now I want you all to focus in on the center of the chart; The image of the cross more specifically. This is the most significant event that occurred on this planet. Now let’s suppose there are multiple universes in existence. Or, even multiple inhabited worlds within our own galaxy. Just think of the possible predicament this would cause Jesus.”

     She continued, “Now imagine if the Father asked Jesus to go down to other worlds that were infested with sin. And if Lucifer or some other evil entity was there working overtime to insure there would be plenty of company in hell at the end time. Moreover, the Father asked Him to suffer through another crucifixion event.”

Christ

     “I’m sure Jesus would remind Him of the prayer He said before hand:” ‘If thou be willing, remove this cup from me . . .‘ This is His quote from Luke 22:42. Jesus was fully man, as well as fully God. If He were a cyborg, a droid or some other fabricated entity, he wouldn’t have felt a thing.”

     Thompson continued: “Thus, he would have been a fake, resulting in a bogus crucifixion. A being sent from heaven as a plant. Therefore, if this were the case, the atonement for sins would have been a farce.”

     At his point she made the sign of the cross as if she were asking forgiveness for her humorous gag about the Lord.

     Thompson then finalized: “What a pitiful site He was. I want to conclude by stating that because of this fictional scenario, it is my contention that there is only us. No other worlds, no other universes, no extraterrestrials out there. We are it. And Christ paid the price, once and for all.”

     “I’m sorry I said I wouldn’t preach. But I know no other way to get this message across. Besides, just look at the photo of this sea of humanity. There are over 7 billion folks on this planet. Isn’t that enough of us to go around?” Even though the Multiverse theory is widely accepted, I proclaim it is a megamistake.”

     After the assembly was dismissed, there were clumps of gatherings outside discussing the significance of what they just heard. Some conversations were positive, while others were negative. Obviously those objecting were of the evolutionist and atheist crowd. Waiting outside was Professor Wishbone who told them they should have left with him when he stormed out earlier. “That was total poppycock,” he asserted, “What rational scientific student would fall for such rubbish?”

A Biblical Perspective

     After lunch, the students began drifting back into the auditorium for the afternoon lecture. Already present at the podium was guest lecturer Doctor Christine Thompson, who holds a PhD in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary. Currently she heads up the Northern California extension in Menlo Park. She had came down and slipped in during the morning session.

     To kick off the lecture, she cracked the following joke: “Doctor Wisestien has informed me that this college receives no government grants. Since that’s the case, then I should be able to make the following suggestion without federal repercussions. How about we form a hit squad to go back in time and assassinate some of these present day politicians?”

     This crack caused an instantaneous uproar of laughter, whistling, foot stomping, clapping, high-fives, and howls.

     After the crowd calmed down she said, “Now that everyone is awake—for I know how sleepy you get after chow—I’ll begin my lecture.”

     “How many of you would like to go back in time to make some adjustment in happenstance?” After some raised their hands, she next asked, “How many of you would like to go ahead in time just to be newsy?”

     “Before I forget, let me mention that I am not here to preach to all of you, nor proselytize, nor evangelize. I am here to present historical facts and biblical prophecies. My objective is to open your minds, so you may analyze what you see and hear. Now I’ll start with this chart of a biblical timeline.”

     “Time has already been mapped out for us. Since God exist outside of our spacetime realm, He knows the beginning, from the end. Therefore, I hypothesis that there’s no need for time travel. What has happened, has happened, and what will be, will be. Traveling back or forward in time won’t change a thing. It’s all shown here.”

     Just then professor Wishbone rose up and rebuked her by saying, “I maintain all this Bible stuff is nothing more than mere speculation and fairy tales. There’s no substance to it.”

     Thompson: “For instance professor, this next video projection pertains to a prophecy from the book of Daniel, verse 12:4: ‘But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.‘”

     “Needless to say, this is what—how you say—what’s going down. So if you’re inquisitive about what else will be coming down, check out the chart. Better yet, read the Bible. Now professor Wishbone, do you still think the Bible is full of fairy tales?”

     Rather respond to her, Wishbone left the auditorium in a huff, prompting another audience uproar. Yet in a previous lecture, he acknowledged the scripture in Revelation about the bottomless pit as being a theoretical black hole. Since professor Wisenheirmer remembered the indecent he was left perplexed as to what Wishbone’s problem was. Maybe it was just rebellion towards God, he surmised.

Native American Encounter

Collegiate Dialogue

     The picture above shows a typical lunch time conversation among students. It is a relaxing scene like this when institute students participate in informal debates about the origins of the universe and man. In this case, the female student is a Native-American who is defending her cultural traditions. One of the students ask her if she is an evolutionist or a creationist.

     She responded: “I believe in creationism. Essentially, I believe the same deity as the God of Christianity. In fact, some of my people are devout Christians. They blend our traditions with Christianity, and they attend churches and read the Bible.”

     “So you believe the so called God of the Bible and the creation account?”

     “That’s right. How else should we believe? It should be obvious from all the signs given to us in nature.”

     “Could you be more specific?”

     “Take for instance, that butterfly that just landed on that bush,” she continued. “It has undergone a metamorphosis from the caterpillar to the pupa and from the pupa to the adult butterfly. A closer look will show the beauty and symmetry of it’s wings. This is the result of God’s creation, not millions of years of evolution.”

     The other student says, “You don’t have to tell me. I’ve been attempting to convince him for months.”

     “So you’re a Christian? As for your friend, I assume he’s an evolutionist.”

     “He is. I was telling him, ‘Native Americans also identify God as Great Spirit, Great Creator, Energy, Light Source, and so-on.’ In addition, ‘you-all have the Native American Ten Commandments, which is also known as your Code of Ethics.'”

     “True,” she continued. “It’s similar to scripture. Essentially, I contend we believe in the same God. In fact my heritage is Lakota, and we pray to Tunkasila, whom we consider to be the Creator.”

     At this point the evolutionist felt left out, but agreed to continue the debate at some other time.
