Was it Jesus' Words or another 1st Century Behavior Model that changed our Hyper-Violent Human-Sacrificing Ancestors?
Beginning in year -0- or thereabouts, these words began to circle the globe in more languages than all other literary works combined. At this time, all societies practiced human sacrifice if not human bloodsport and put to death anyone who vocally disagreed with whatever ideas, religious or other, were revered by those in power.
Is it possible you owe Jesus Christ a thank you, for being crucified for bringing this message to a a hyper-violent, incorrigibly immoral and mortally hateful world? Imagine the earth, without these words, only brought to life because evangelists, preachers and missionaries were willing to be crucified, beheaded and burned alive to embed Jesus as the NEW moral norm of mankind's collective heart and mind.
