What Must Be Done
Is the question above a puzzle? Have you discovered that religious leaders might have misled you? Are you now looking for the truth you thought you had been given to you, but had not? You are not alone but you're going to have to use what is called deductive reasoning! Where do you want to start? Perhaps the following will help you.
Note:The scriptures quoted below are about the same event at the same time.
Matthew 19 :13-14
13 Then young children were brought to him, for him to put his hands upon them and offer them prayer; but the disciples reprimanded them.
14 Jesus, however, said: Let the young children alone, and stop hindering them from coming to me, for the kingdom of the heavens belongs to such like ones.
Mark 10 :13-15
13 Now people began bringing him young children for him to touch these; but the disciples reprimanded them,
14 at seeing this Jesus was indignant and said to them: let the jury young children come to me; do not try to stop them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such like once.
15 truly I say to you whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a young child will by no means enter into it.
Luke 18 :15-17
15 People began to bring him also their infants for him to touch these semicolon but on seeing it the disciples began to reprimand them.
16 However, Jesus called the infants to him, saying: Let the young children come to me and do not try to stop them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such like ones. 17 truly I say to you whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a young child will by no means get into it.
Now it really goes without saying that a deep appreciation for children, and their education into the new understanding of Christianity, as opposed to Judaism or any sort of paganism, (which surrounded the society that they were a part of), would make perfect sense but his disciples were not, (at that point) giving proper consideration to what Jesus was doing. The disciples had observed the attention given the children as an intervention of the task at hand, which was: to convince the people to convert to the new and far more appropriate thinking patterns of Christianity, away from Judaism and paganism. Before the three observations that are outlined above, the disciples had already been spoken to by Jesus using a child as an example for his teaching at Luke 9 :46-48 and they still didn't grasp what was being said.
The disciples were aware of the powers being bestowed upon them but still were more amazed than fully cognizant of the reasoning behind the bestowal. For instance, immediately after using a child (the first time at Luke 9 :47) James and John wanted to bring fire down on the Samaritan Village that had not received them well, and had to be rebuked for their rashness, after being told how humbled they must be to be a member of the kingdom of God at the administration level!
They (the disciples) were being told that they had to become as open-minded, innocent and formative as an uneducated child; to forget all they thought they knew about religion, government etc. or they could not, would not, grasp the task before them. Such is the case today for the chosen class; to overcome the falsehoods permeating false Christianity or whatever else obscures the scripture objective!
Speaking specifically of Judaism, Judah (with some other Israelites) had formulated a religion that in 537 years, concocted a ruling concept that had disenchanted so many of the Israel remnent, as to make it possible for Jesus to amass thousands of listeners, virtually everywhere he went. This information is laced throughout the New Testament. Members of Judah is somewhere being told to get out of her! She (Judaism) ultimately executed Jesus for all the wrong reasons. Christianity today keeps introducing and reintroducing Judaism's influences is perplexing to say the least.
