Did Thomas Doubt?
"It is a joyful day, rejoice in the Light."
Ann: Thomas? Anita* says you want to speak to me.
Thomas: Yes, Ann, I do. And it makes me smile to see that perplexed, even skeptical, look on your face. Perhaps we have more in common that you think since I was the one who was held to be the doubter.
Ann: And were you?
Thomas: Nothing could be further from the truth as it pertained to our Lord Jesus Christ. I held him in my heart and soul as a brother, as a reincarnation of all that I could be, aspired to be and perhaps one day would be. What I questioned (I never liked the word doubt), was the force of resistance of a few rag tag groupies against the mighty Roman machine. I thought they would destroy us. And I questioned whether martyrdom was the way to further our cause. Not all agreed. Judas, for example, thought otherwise.
Ann: And did you come around?
Thomas: Yes and no. Clearly martyrdom has provided centuries of motivation for those who wished to follow the cause, but I always wondered whether it was necessary. The Way, the Way that Jesus taught, was powerful enough in itself to create a revolution. And, though slower, I wondered, and still do, whether a slower revolution built upon individual transformation might have been more lasting because it would not have been based upon a single act of unimaginable violence and cruelty in the service of naked power for its own sake.
Jesus himself saw the Way as sufficient unto itself and did not plan, and certainly was not wedded to, the agony of his crucifixion. Who could be? He was a man, a great teacher, a highly evolved person who saw the power of light making its way from one soul to the next until an exponential revolution would overwhelm the forces of violence from the inside out.
He did not espouse violence of any sort, and yet the Christian movement was founded on an act of extreme violence and cruelty. While this may have given the movement a jump start, it subtly gave permission for retaliation against those who do not espouse the cause. This he never meant to do, for violence had no place as part of the Way. Once it entered in, I questioned whether the movement was lost.
And so it has been for two centuries. While there have been many acts of kindness and succor for the poor and less fortunate, the church in all its many iterations has sanctioned violence against unbelievers. Was this not exactly what was done to Jesus when he would not toe the Roman line? Jesus was and is a person of light, almost unimaginable light. Never would he have countenanced violence in his name.
Today we have a chance to correct our course, to commit ourselves to the true Way of Jesus. You, Ann, have much to learn in this regard, and we are here with you to aid you and your readers in the course of study that you have embarked upon on this blog.
Let us commit ourselves to the Light, to the joyful spirit of Jesus and others who have shown us by their examples that Light alone in its purest iteration is the sufficient and necessary attraction for the salvation of the planet.
I ask each and every one of you to banish any force that detracts from the Light to the furthest reaches of the cosmos where in time-out mode such forces will necessarily come to a realization of their error.
In the meantime allow yourself to bask in the joy of Christ’s holy Way and laugh at all the human foibles that would like to derail your reunion with Source.
As Jesus said, it is a joyful day, rejoice in the Light.
