I had once upon time misinterpreted a writing and I wrote to my brother about it, rewriting the same writing, but with parentheses in place so as to notify where the basic units of understanding would lie. That is, some units of meaning can be different. Fx. one can write x and x and y with z meaning several things: x and x and y with z, x and x and (y with z) and (x and x) and (y with z) thinking of a choice between two alternatives! This is for you to consider either way. It can be interesting and fun too!

Over the status of Jesus and how to remove the apparent contradiction and the moral trouble with Jesus being tortured and killed on the cross, it can be worthwhile to consider this thought:
if you consider Jesus to be a kind of symbolism that goes like the following, I think you'll be better off. Alright, Jesus is (now) to be considered "purely symbolic" and it should spark the these lines.
1. It might be that God loves humanity so much that he would incarnate on earth as "his Son, Jesus".
2. But this thought is so abruptly wrong because humanity loves God back and can't bear such an experience. Thus God is asked to refrain from this and the humanity to God and vice versa of love is by this affirmed!
Hallelujah! Enjoy your religion!
