For another approach to this same topic, read here.
You don't need Jesus to have a plethora of children. You don't need Jesus to home school. You don't need Jesus to adhere to any particular dress code. You don't need Jesus to adhere to any particular behavioral code. You don't need Jesus for a man to be a masculine visionary or a woman to be a feminine homemaker. You don't need Jesus to stand against the effeminate or the feminist. You don't need Jesus to vote Republican or Constitutional. You don't need Jesus to overpower the opposition by force of numbers, particularly when those numbers are primarily dependent on breeding. You don't need Jesus to practice priestcraft, and most certainly not for a father to act as prophet, priest, and king of his home. Many who know little to nothing about Jesus do these things. Many devout atheists do these things.
You do, however, need those things to take dominion.
It begs the question...What exactly would one need Jesus for, when the things listed above have become the ano klesis and dominant motivators, factors, and traits in one's life?
From my previous post, stated in reference to the followers of Jim Jones...
"All because Jesus left their culture...and they never noticed, because nothing changed. Their culture became their Jesus."
Neither the man nor the idea behind the movement needed Jesus. It merely needed a culture, a way of life, a "worldview".
Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations— “Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,” which all concern things which perish with the using—according to the commandments and doctrines of men? These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh.
How beautiful to clean the inside of the cup and dish. How beautiful to set our mind on things above, rather than on the basic principles and regulations of things here, according to the commandments and doctrines of men.
How disheartening to see Jesus as an innocent bystander, yet burdened with the blame for something He had no taste for.
