It was not a sectarian message at all, but people took Jesus as a person and his "I" as some sort of sectarian "I". The message only meant that "The Real I is the way, the truth and life and no one comes to it without its knowledge". In the hands of selfish wordly men who themselves have no experiences of Jesus, the message has been distorted and packaged as a desert cult.
    This is the way I read the testaments about Jesus also. I do not believe that one has to be born in India or born into Hinduism to realize Self. The truth is attainable by all seekers and of those who attain it , few reach out to teach. Jesus was one such guru. But current day religion of Christianity is anything but what Jesus preached.

    Having said that, I also believe that the scriptures of Hinduism is one of the best ways to understand what Jesus was trying to preach. Current day Christian preachings borrow heavily from old testament - which is nothing but a hateful tribal literature.

    Let us see. The goal of Christianity is to lead a life of religous merit so that when you die you can go to Heaven and live happily forever with God. How can this in anyway compare with realizing the Self/attaing the truth while living?
