The prophet Mattaman spoke, saying:
No one can be Jesus.
Everyone is Christ.
For what was Jesus we discerned with our eyes
and fell away.
What is Christ our eyes have never seen,
nor hearts been without.
Has it not occurred to you,
Jesus was empty dust?
Have you not considered
Christ was Word and Light?
But there is some divine reason
Jesus, as we say, should be
the Christ; likewise,
When we say Christ, we mean also, Jesus.
Have you not accepted
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust?
Have you not also been told
To expect some of your Creator’s
strength within you?
I assure you that the day
that dissolves humanity
will be the first day
Christ will be praised
without Jesus the Nazarene.
