Mark 9:19 (New King James Version)
19 He answered him and said, “O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him to Me.”
One of the passages that give us a picture of an annoyed Jesus unlike the one usually found in the conservative religious world, a Jesus with the outworldly, slightly condescending smile.
He would probably be annoyed also at the sight of the kind of experiments like the following one:
Throughout history people have described how they have floated from their bodies and looked back at themselves, often when close to death or on the operating table.
The accounts have been so vivid that they are often cited as proof of the existence of the soul or Heaven.
But scientists now claim they have dispelled this myth by artificially creating an out-of-body experience using computers and cameras.
They believe the feeling of detachment occurs when the brain becomes confused by conflict between the senses – and is not proof of any “spiritual dimension” to existence.
Professor Olaf Blanke and his team at University of Geneva said they had “immersed” volunteers into the body of an avatar – a computer generated version of themselves. (Read on)
He wouldn’t perhaps be upset because people are trying to “prove” the inexistence of a soul. He would be more bothered by the fact that after centuries of Christianity they still believe that performing miracles was the highlight of His mission on Earth.
John 6:26 (King James Version)
26Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
