Healthy Eating

In yesterday's blog I used the New Testament verse at John 6:56 to explain why we are not machines that come from nonliving thingst.  Repeating this verse Jesus said,  'He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood, dwelleth 'in' me and I 'in' him.'

Unfortunately, this verse led Christians to worship Jesus; say that Jesus is Lord and Son of God;  eat bread and wine in  Communion to represent Jesus' flesh and blood; etc. However, the purpose of John 6:56 was not to promote the worship of people. The only purpose of the verse John 6:56 was to teach people how to eat and live. Jesus repeats this teaching at John 6:57.

In John 6:58; Jesus says that bread comes down from heaven. Jesus compares this bread from heaven with the manna used by the fathers of humans. It is clear that Jesus was not using these verses to promote himself and develop worship. Jesus was using these verses to demonstrate the difference between things that come from God and things that people eat.

It is clear that the Jews, Jesus' disciples, and today's Christian churches do not understand what Jesus was teaching at John 6:56.

Since all created things originate from an infinite God, the good food for human life is still unknown.  This knowledge will not be found until our active God becomes an interest subject to all humans.

    So the people that were actually with Jesus and could ask him for clarification at any time didn't understand Jesus yet you do?
    Jesus was not here to prove your theory George he was here for a much greater purpose. One that you deny because that would ruin your theory.

    If it was not to promote worship why did he say,"do this in remembrance of me."

    Response to David S.Wilkinson,

    The Jews and disciples did not understand John 6:56. And the Christian today still does not do not understand it. To my knowledge, one must be a sientist to understand this verse and its 'in' words..

    My theory on an infinite God does not allow a finite human being to become infinite where it becomes a Son of God. Joseph Smith was wrong. Islam also doed not allow a Son of God. Judaism also does not accept Jesus as the Son of God. My theory is not standing alone.

    All humans have a greater purpose. This is why we are reincarnated. Eternity means that our development of knowledge has no end.

    My reserch says that Jesus never spoke positive on the subject of the Son of God when asked. Only the disciples speak of Jesus as the Son of God.

    There are four descriptions of Jesus before the council where he is asked if he is the Son of God and in Mark he does answer," I am" to the question. Two of the descriptions of the last supper have Jesus instructing the disciples to remember him (one translation says honor) when they partake of the bread and wine which represent his body and his blood.
    Also Jesus specifically said that the manna from Heaven was NOT like him, that those eating manna would again be hungry but those that ate his bread (i.e partake of his Holy Spirit) would not be hungry again. This is a spiritual metaphor much like Jesus speaking of living waters and has nothing to do with actual food and/or drink.
