Why Jesus was against competitive religiosity

When Jesus says that a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand, I believe Jesus meant two things:

First, that you cannot become great if you oppose the greatness of others, and also: that you cannot be a worship if you oppose the right of others to worship your God in the same way that you.

When Jesus says a house divided and against itself cannot stand, I believe Jesus was saying that you cannot have a positive and lasting connection with your house of worship if you oppose the rights of others to have positive and lasting connections with their house of worship.

I believe God is also saying you cannot be included by the religious community or the fellowship of God lovers if you oppose the inclusion and mutual support of others in the religious community and fellowship of God lovers.

When Jesus said a city divided and against itself cannot stand, I believe Jesus is saying you cannot attain wisdom if you oppose the rights of others to attain the same wisdom that you have and you cannot gain popularity if you oppose the popularity of others and the same with respect or fame or praise or status, if you do not let others bathe in their glow, you will not be allowed to bathe in your own glow.

    I think it's a good lesson to work with the beilevers of God rather than work against them and even teamwork socially is a good goal. But you also want to be sure that their mission and behavior aligns with the bible in terms of the beilevers of God
    Is this still revelant?

    Jesus said the Old Testament was still the law. The Old Testament proscribed genocide. But anyone can cherry pick the Bible to support any position they want. It's really convenient that the Bible always seems to align exactly to the things we want to personally believe.

    Jesus was being advised of being a follower of Beelzebub because he had the power of casting or demons. He simply responded that there is no logic in him undoing the work of his master were that the case. Casting out demons would damage the power demons have over humans, weakening their position.
    He insisted by saying that, instead, he follows God, who is against demons. That is the reason he can cast them out.

    The problem is nobody actually reads/follows their holy books. But make/choose their own version, to suit their liking. And thus there over 30000 different versions of christianity.

    Only about 38%americans believe that the world was created 6000-1000 years ago. As the book clearly stated. Most consider that part of the book wrong or to feel better they call that part fiction.
    • It’s not a literal declaration. If you’ve read it, you know the Bible actually says that “With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” You can find that in 2 Peter‬ ‭3:8‬. So people made the literal connection of the 7 days of creation to that portion. That’s why some people say the world was created some 7,000 or 6,000 years ago. However, all that portion means to say is that God’s sense of time differs to the way us humans appreciate time. The Bible doesn’t give an explicit time indication of how long it took to create the world in human’s understanding of time, but in God’s understanding of time, which is beyond our understanding. Many people do cherry pick the Bible and suit it to their preconceived ideas, so I’ll agree on that, but you have to truly analyze the book and pray for guidance to understand its contents.

      There is an actual geneology from Adam to Jesus.

      Of how old somebody was when he had a son, and how old son was when he had his son. And so on.

      And how long someone ruled etc etc. All the way to Jesus.

      If you read the Bible then you probably remember the part where it went on for a while, that is the first part of it, others are a bit scattered around.

      Also the days where an actual 24 hour days, according to bible.
      "there was evening, and there was morning—the first day" gen 1:5

      That later verse just means that time is relative or not important to god, thats why it is both ways.
