Mick wrote:If Jesus is meant to be the hero in these "made up" stories by the Romans, and if the Romans intended to push for submission, I have a hard time figuring out why they'd make Jesus' teaching contrary to the opinion of Jewish leaders and ultimately put to death for what looked like a political challenge. That's not submission. Matters worsen once we see the certain Gospels involve him defeating death with the resurrection.

Surely you do not deny that Christianity has been a very prominent adjunct as a strategy of colonialists for a very long time. Just ask yourself why it works so well. Christianity was traditionally only rebellious toward other religions. The 20th Century brought a new twist, once colonialism came to be seen pejoratively. Some prospective early Christian can look at what happened to Jesus and decide that getting one's reward in heaven justifies taking any amount of crap in this life. You take it differently, Mick. Why is that? Could it be that the atheists have picked your lock? Dominionists, who are sick to death of history, want it all, and fabricate a new story to the effect that a temporal government under Christ will bring about the Apocalypse.
