The bible’s first commandment seems to be from the original “god”. He warns everyone in this commandment to have no other god before him.
Yet, in 325AD the council of Nicaea created Jesus as the primary god of Christianity at the time they created the Nicene Creed. They do acknowledge god as “the father” but he is not put “first” as the first commandment demands. In fact god the father is rarely shown in Christian Churches, Christ is prominent.
How can Christianity call itself real and put emphasis on keeping all the commandments if it requires them to break the first commandment to become a christian in the first place.
The esoteric christian response (mantra) seems to be “It is another mystery of our faith” It is indeed a mystery. This question drove me away from religion. They ignore the simple paradox in their Christian belief systems.
I would love to hear opinions from people who are not “sold” on the religious beliefs.
