The Good Samaritan

Written by Andy

Someone got bashed up by a gang of thugs, robbed, and left for dead. The thugs were operating to the rules that existed before we became civilized – that is no rules concerning rape, theft, and murder.
Our society is headed that way again if we don’t embrace the ‘Philosophy of Jesus’.

Samaritans claimed that they were descendants of the Northern Israelite tribes, who had survived the destruction of the Kingdom of Israel (Samaria) by the Assyrians in 722 BCE. The Hebrews and the Samaritans ‘avoided’ each other. The Hebrews thought they were better than the Samaritans and avoided travel through Samaritan land. Disinformation (‘fake news’) in classical texts tends to suggest that the Samaritans were problematic people. The reality is that they were the despised enemies of the Hebrews. Under the laws of Moses, there is little compassion for other peoples.

Two thousand years ago, Jesus told a story set on the winding Jericho Road (which is now part of the ‘occupied’ West Bank of Palestine). (The Palestinian Authority believes that the West Bank ought to be a part of their sovereign nation, and that the presence of Israeli military control is a violation of their right to Palestinian Authority rule. The United Nations calls the West Bank and Gaza Strip Israeli-occupied territories.) The Good Samaritan parable is one of the most beloved gospel stories as is contains a strong moral message on neighborhood and other issues. Jesus didn’t create a set of rules as Moses had done and as the modern nations-state does, he taught by giving examples.

When Jesus reached a well at Shechem, he asked a Samaritan woman for a drink, she replied in surprise: “Jews do not associate with Samaritans” (John 4:9). There were clear split within the Hebrew society. Relations were strained. The Jews despised the Samaritans.

When asked by a legalistic person what the most important commandment was, Jesus said that the greatest commandment is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind” and the second to “love your neighbor as yourself”.  Jesus was then immediately asked who counts as a neighbor and he responds with a story lesson that is an example for everyday life rather than rules. 

A man going from Jerusalem to Jericho is attacked by robbers who strip him, beat him, rob him, and leave him for dead. A Jewish priest passes him by. A Levite passes by without helping the blood covered human. But a Samaritan stops, cares to his wounds, and takes him to a hostel where the Samaritan pays for his care.

This is the story as told by Luke:

On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” He answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ ; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”  “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.” But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’  “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

Luke 10:25-37

Mark put it this way:

One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”  “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’  The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”  “Well said, teacher,” the man replied. “You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him.  To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions.

Mark 12:28-34

Those listening to Jesus telling this story would have expected a Jew to be the hero of Jesus’ story, and so they would have been shocked to hear that it is a Samaritan. So, it is not a matter of whether you are a regular attendee at a place of worship, but you actions that are important. You have to ‘live’ the life in the manner that Jesus describes.

Let us look at this from another direction. Clearly, someone got bashed up, robbed, and left for dead by a gang of thugs. The thugs were operating to the rules that existed before we became civilized – that is no rules concerning rape, theft, and murder. So we know that bad people existed in that society as they do today. Clearly, there were persons of different sects that were local enemies. It was a divided society. For a quality society, we want neither thugs operating local accepted culture, nor groups that clash of different religion or philosophy. A culture is variously defined along the lines of: “The ideas, customs, and social behaviour of a society.” It is built up over centuries to create a society of people working and cooperating with each other. An easy way to break a culture is to bring in large numbers of persons of entirely different ideas, customs, and social behaviour, including breeding habits. It will create the type of society the Jesus was discussing in the parable. If one religion teaches that their religion is supreme, then a clash will not occur in a region with only that culture but will create a massive rift in a society damaged by mass mixing. Thus, ‘multiculturalism’ is an oxymoron. It is better to have only one religion in a region or all the churches will get burnt down. It is not the culture that is the problem but the mixing of cultures. As soon as you mix religions, classes, colours, ethnic origins, you get clashes of the type Jesus here describes. Enforced population movement causes great problems. The problems are often un-solvable. I often tell the story: I would not put a million Japanese into China. I would not put a million Indians into Fiji. I would not put a millionBritish into India. We can ask everyone to be ‘nice’ to each other, but that is not possible if religions teach the superiority of their religion. A nation full of Muslims has cooperation amongst its citizens. A nation full of Jews has cooperation amongst its citizens. A nation full of Christians has cooperation amongst its citizens. A nations full of Buddhists has cooperation amongst its citizens.

How did the bashed man in the story go asking the thugs to be ‘nice’ to him! Christians, Muslims, Jews are never going to live in peaceful existence with each other. When their rules differ on such topics listed below, there will be clashes.

  • Male genital mutilation.
  • Female genital mutilation.
  • Alcohol rules.
  • Female rights.
  • Interfaith marriage.
  • Demonization of those of other religions.
  • Dietary rules.
  • Rules on money lending. (Usury.)
  • Intolerance of other races and religions.
An anonymous meme.

5.18, the Quran tells Muslims to rebuke Jews and Christians for calling God their loving Father because humans are just things that God has created. Islam condemns worship of the Trinity. Jews claim that they are the ‘Chosen ones”!

It is assumed by the non-Christians that Christians believe that anyone who is not a Christian is damned. Sarah Silverman, the Jewish comedian said:

I Hope The Jews Did Kill Christ. I’d Fucking Do It Again in a Second.

So great is the dislike of one religion for the next that a ‘Racial and Religious Hatred Act’ is required. What then, is the point in mixing the different religions and demanding cooperation?  Religions tend to categorize actions as holy or unholy, good or evil, linked with salvation and damnation. The friction is inbuilt. Religion contains an element group identity with perceived exclusivity. This is also bound up with components of identity which have nationalistic, ethnic, and cultural elements. If one was born in a region and your lineage spreads back many generations, the sense of belonging to the land is commendably high. Humans need land to exist. A tied to the historic possession of land is an expectation of fighting for its retention. It is more than bigotry to stand against mass invaders whether they walk in with an army, or without an army. In the words of the Dalai Lama: “They should go back to where they came from.”

STOCKHOLM (AFP) – The Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, said Wednesday that “Europe belongs to the Europeans” and that refugees should return to their native countries to rebuild them.

He was speaking at a conference in Sweden’s third-largest city of Malmo, home to a large immigrant population, the Dalai Lama — who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 — said Europe was “morally responsible” for helping “a refugee really facing danger against their life”.

“Receive them, help them, educate them… but ultimately they should develop their own country,”

said the 83-year-old Tibetan who fled the capital Lhasa in fear of his life after China poured troops into the region to crush an uprising.

“I think Europe belongs to the Europeans,” he said, adding they should make clear to refugees that “they ultimately should rebuild their own country”…

A Christian will typically say: ” I was raised a Catholic and I was taught to love God and everyone else.” and “I went to Catholic schools and was familiar with the teachings of helping others, especially the poor, sick and disabled.” Similarly learning occurs with other religions. Buddhists hold similar views and espouse a life of peace, love, and charity.

Yet we have a ‘War on Terrorism’ which would be better called a “War on Religious Extremism”.  Which is a cover for war on ‘Islamic Extremists’ which is a euphemism for war on ‘Islamic warmongers’.

In the Middle East, there is a ‘war’ between Jews and Muslims even though nations have not declared war in a formal sense. In Thailand, there is strife (war) between Muslims and Buddhists — without a formal war being declared. In Ireland, there are still tensions between Protestants and Catholics requiring a high wall and fences across a city with resilient gates that are closed at night. Across Africa, Christians and Muslims are fighting over power and supremacy. In South Africa, there is an undeclared war between black people and white people. In the USA, there are tensions between black persons, Hispanics, and white people. They live in different parts of cities, their youth fight, and they support their own in business and politics. The most prejudiced against in the USA are those of mixed origin. In some Muslim countries, Muslims kill Muslims over age old differences.

Mixing people of different religions, ethnicities, or colours, simply does not work and those that do it purposely, create undocumented war.

In these turmoil situations, new sects are created where perverse views are sold to others preach new messages. A current message is for males to bed as many women as possible. This is now moving to the sexual abuse of children. Mental illness of perverts is sold as normality. There simply is no reality to the expectation that religions will peacefully coexist. Look at the volumes of information labeled as ‘conspiracy theory’ to decry reasonable discussion on subjects touchy to those that control the media. A simple websearch ‘who controls the media?’ reveals the hidden answer. DuckDuckGo has one reply:

Shadow Government | Who Rules America? Who Controls the U.S ..
Jewish media control determines the foreign policy of the United States and permits Jewish interests rather than American interests to decide questions of war and peace. Without Jewish media control, there would have been no Persian Gulf war, for example. There would have been no NATO massacre of Serb civilians.

www.sweetliberty.org/issues/shadow/jewishmedia.htm

So we clearly have religions battling each other for control and influence. A DuckDuckGo websearch on “who controls the music industry?” has an answer by ‘Quartz’ that reports that it is largely controlled by Lyor Cohen and Jimmy Iovine — both Jewish. As in the parable of the good Samaritan, we have dangerous neighbourhoods. If yours is safe, read about this one:

“The hood must be transformed into a safe civic space where members of the black community, the elderly, the young, teenagers, husbands and wives, mothers and daughters, fathers and sons can interact without fear. This public sphere will not be controlled by roaming gangs of violent young men. This reign of terror connected to the sights and sounds of gun shots, dead bodies, blood on the sidewalk, screeching automobiles, and blaring hip hop music must stop. Guns, drugs, and gangs must go. Gang life is not an acceptable substitute for a stable family home, with a firm father figure. Indeed, left to their own devices, young black men in gangs are killing one another.”

Reading Race: Hollywood and the Cinema of Racial Violence.
By Norman K Denzin

On the website ‘Let’s Please God’, they have a topic: ‘Racism: The Jews that Weaponized Rap Music.’

Next time you wanna blame rap music, rappers, and black people for their condition, don’t forget to point out the Jews behind it all.

They point out:

‘Black’ movies were created to calm black people down. The civil rights movement was still in effect during the late 60s and blacks were still raising hell because of their oppression. The system of white supremacy realized that cinema could be used as a tool. Up until the 70s, cinema was ‘all white’, and while black characters were included, they were subservient, weak and losers.

https://www.letspleasegod.com/racism-pt8/

Now the reverse propaganda is happening:

This new genre depicted black people as the heroes. The leads were either fighting crime, or being heads of their own criminal organizations. And for the first time it showed black people kicking white butt; it even had interracial sex.

https://www.letspleasegod.com/racism-pt8/

In these movies, blacks were the winners and whites were the losers — and the system worked — black people calmed down. Instead of going outside, protesting and rioting about oppression, a black man could sit inside a theater and watch Jim Brown kick some white tail, and that was satisfying enough for him.

www.letspleasegod.com/racism-pt8/

 immorality was glorified and it preconditioned the black community for the onslaught and devastation of crack-cocaine, gangs and violence scheduled for the next decade.

Predictive programming is a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented. If and when these changes are put through, the public will already be familiarized with them and will accept them as natural progressions, thus lessening any possible public resistance and commotion.

Many major American movies are used as tools to shape the minds of the public. Many films have been made to justify the inappropriate hell created during the world wars. Movies are not evil in themselves, but they are used to distract, pacify any uprising against the establishment, indoctrinate us with lies, defile our souls with immorality and, of course, program us for future events.

Alan Watt defines Predictive programming as:

Predictive programming is a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by our leaders. If and when these changes are put through, the public will already be familiarized with them and will accept them as natural progressions, thus lessening possible public resistance and commotion.”

Alan Watt

Thus, many films are designed to condition you. If you are smart, you might get an understanding of the plan of the agenda. You will see much about the destruction of family. You now hear girls say “I don’t want children.” You will see and accept violence and death on the streets.

There is thus a bigger story to ‘The Good Samaritan’. You can be good and help the bashed man on the street side or you can be a leader of man and stop creating the type of society where a traveler is bashed an left for dead. I sometimes say: “We have to stop the aeroplanes falling out of the sky — before they fall out of the sky.” We need to stop those that are corrupting our morals and our society. As ‘Lets Please God’ reports:

But can rappers rap about something other than fornication, genocide, theft, money, pride and drugs? Sure they can, but at the expense of their careers. …
If an artist attempts to produce something that is constructive which goes against the agenda of the owners of the record labels, they’ll just be dropped from the label and replaced. Money talks and there’s always another talented, but impoverished ignorant and foolish black person who will sell their soul for riches and fame at the expense of everyone else.

https://www.letspleasegod.com/racism-pt8/

Positive rap is not promoted because there’s an agenda to display ‘harmful rap’. And thus our youth listens to music with the extremely common chorus: “Get on your knees bitch and suck my dick!”

  • There are many levels of understanding to this parable. Many deeper meanings may be lost on you. You may need to re-read this regularly as it is at the core of the teachings of Jesus but also the way he taught. He avoided rules, in favour of example. There are even deeper learnings. Writers such as Irenaeus, Clement, Ambrose, Origen, and others taught that Jesus was the Good Samaritan and that the wounded man represented each of us as individuals, but also the entirety of mankind collectively. Carrying the analogy further, The priest (‘the Law’) and the Levite (‘the prophets’) did not (or could not) save mankind in their sins. It was the ‘outcast’ (Jesus) that bound his wounds, ‘anointed’ him with oil and wine, and carried his burden to the inn (the Church) where he would be safe (literally saving the man from spiritual death). In the end, he left the man in the innkeeper’s care, and promised to come again to his ‘church’.
    I tend to think it is simpler than that. The lawyer answered his own question by saying: “The one that showed mercy”. Jesus then said: “Go and do the same.” I don’t think we need to deal with complex analogies.

  • Was Jesus making the point that having a heart turned toward God was more important than making lists of rules and ticking the boxes next to the ones that had been obeyed and ignoring the ones that had been forgotten?

  • The current pope is a disgrace.

    The White race has been the basis of Christianity for nearly 2,000 years. If the church were truly interested in the continuance of Christianity, they should be protecting the White race as a top priority.

    Jesus arrived at a time when the Roman Empire had occupied Israel. One of the four books of the New Testament was written by Luke, a Greek physician.

    The Jews as a whole rejected Christianity because a religion that calls for fairness, honesty and high moral character conflicted with the nature of the Jews.

    That’s one reason why the Jews are trying to destroy the White race; they’re doing what satan wants them to do.

  • Only Jewish supremacists and their shabbos goyim lackeys promote multiculturalism. All other people naturally just want their own people, their own culture. Of course, shallow-minded people of any race can be conditioned by television, radio, magazines and newspapers to buy into the “new normal” of multiculturalism.

    But Buddhism promotes meditation, and properly practiced, meditation grants clarity of mind; one of the best tools for thwarting brainwashing.

    I’m glad to see the Dalai Lama stand up and speak out a simple yet crucial truth. I hope others are similarly inspired. Perhaps some swami of the Sanatana Dharma tradition might be so inclined.
