Consider: Is it Jesus Christ who sets the example for us in all our virtues, and is God using these characters attributes for us to follow in his way of life?

After reading the Proverb 19: 22, and some of the other scriptures, I was inspired to ask this question.

I find it interesting that some of the most widely held beliefs about Christianity (including that the Bible is the literal word of God) are modern interpretations of the Bible.

This video can explain it better than I ever could:

well vesuvius that is why i am not in anny religion. i take what is good and leave the rest. if jesus spoke and the people accepted him maybe it is because he was saying the truth and not playing with words to get selfish desire. that is why religion in is time was trying to get rid of him. and they have achive it. did it help them ? no it did not.

@ Vesuvius: what come to mind is: opinions, opinions, who is right, and who is wrong, yet the truth lives on forever. Thank you.

actually, Jesus was an example of the potential for us all,
each of us has somewhere inside ourselves the attributes of a truly spiritual being,
we are manifested forms in search of our beginning,
of which Jesus knew

Well said, the only thing I would add is that Jesus wasn't the only example :)

Indeed we are searching for our beginning, thank you.

You may find this hard to accept but Jesus was not a man born supposedly 2,000 years ago. The real Jesus Christ of scripture is in all. To answer your question, the pattern of thought personified as Jesus in scripture is righteousness (right consciousness) and if you seek first the kingdom (which we are told is within) and His righteousness (right consciousness) all things shall be added to you.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Jesus answered them, “"Has it not been written in your Law, ‘'I SAID, YOU ARE GODS'? If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken) . . ." (NASB) John 10:34-35

vee that god acted through jesus or that jesus add reached a higher level of being does it make a difference if the example is good?

vee if you see someone in this life that as a virtue that is good will you not take it as example?

or do you need to follow only what the bibles tell you?

if you want to follow the example and the message of jesus good for you but do not blind your self to the truth.

i am so i do not let the truth or me get corrupted. i experiance and have free will. and my free will will never be directed by anny religion.

God takes His stand in His own congregation; He judges in the midst of the rulers. How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah. Vindicate the weak and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and destitute. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them out of the hand of the wicked. (NASB) Ps. 82:1-4

They do not know nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. I said, “You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High. “Nevertheless you will die like men and fall like any one of the princes.” (NASB) Psa. 82:5-7
