【The Story of the Kingdom】
(Web page 7/37)
Before Jesus was born, the knowledge on the spiritual culture with universality exceeding the time of over two thousand years was already on its way to being formed on this earth. In China the knowledge of Laotzu, Confucius, Mencius and Zhuangzi bloomed, and in India Buddha appeared. In Greek Pythagoras, Socrates and Plato already appeared. There would have been no reason why the God of Jesus had to intervene in the period when human knowledge had reached there, if humans had not been the children of god. Or if humans had not been made to carry the theme of god, that would have been god's unjust intervention in humans.
However, "Amatsutsuki" intervened. Amatsutsuki chose the way to let humans crucify Jesus. Humans killed the Son of God. The mythology that the Son of God atoned for human sin upon himself was made. Thus god went away at a stroke from the previous reaching point of human knowledge that each human being was god's child. It had gone far away. Only Jesus was god's child and the Father of Jesus was on the throne which was in the sky beyond human knowledge. As Jesus gave the last cry of sorrow on the cross, the Father of Jesus still made Jesus assume the role on the ground. It is understandable why it was Jesus that made contact with the apostles after the last words, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" For example, it was Jesus himself, but not the Father of Jesus, that made Saul who were the suppressor of Christians blind and made him converse.
