The morality of sacrifice is of deceivers and tyrants, and its most sublime casualty is Jesus Christ, considered by Thomas Jefferson as the “greatest of all reformers.” Jefferson described the “benevolent” system of Jesus as “the most SUBLIME morality.”
With devious goals, the anti freedom call it sacrifice. The reality is: Jesus advocated against the “notion that a certain group or nation has a monopoly on human value, while the rest of mankind are properly slaves or mere barbarians.” Christ taught that every man is made in the image of God, thus, every individual soul is precious. Jesus advocated INDIVIDUALISM: the respect of individual rights. Consequently, the anti freedom brutalized him. To absolve themselves of their evil, and to pulverize His most sublime teaching, the anti freedom devised a malevolent scheme: tout the brutality perpetrated on Him as Jesus sacrificing Himself. Three goals are achieved with the morality of sacrifice: no justice/judgment to those who brutalized Him, His most sublime teaching is negated, and tyranny can continue to easily claim those devoid of self-esteem, i.e., those who do not think that every individual soul is precious.
My God is just, so I reject original sin, the doctrine that guilts people out in order to crush their self-esteem. My God is just, so I reject that Jesus sacrificed for me. Glorifying sacrifice is ungodly because self-sacrifice is masochism and sanctioning it is sadism.
Jesus also taught, "Love your neighbors as you love yourself." Sacrificing oneself is not loving oneself. So, self-sacrifice is not of Jesus. Sacrificing others is not loving your neighbors - this is not of Jesus. It is very clear that sacrifice is not a teaching of Jesus.
The MOST SUBLIME MORALITY
Sacrifice is giving up a higher value over a lesser one or over a non-value.
The virtue involved in caring for loved ones and doing the right thing is integrity: you love, so you care; you think it is right, so you do it. Since I love my kids more than I love myself, since I value them above all else, going without something or working hard for them is not sacrifice.
When Patrick Henry said, "Give me liberty, or give me death," he was not sacrificing himself. He was saying that he valued his liberty over his own life.
New Jersey Declaration of Independence Signer, Abraham Clark, was dragooned to renounce his signature. His two sons, Aaron and Thomas, officers in George Washington's army, were captured and TORTURED. The British said they would release them if Mr. Clark renounced the Declaration and his signature. He refused. Since he and his sons valued liberty above all else, it was not sacrifice.
Selfish greed for my integrity
When I fight for Liberty!
