When a God Wishes to Be Wrong!

Sean is a teacher who is writing about his spiritual adventures to help other people find balance and self-respect.


The Sacrifice

The sun was burning unbearably. With every move he made, the wire needles of the fake crown, which literally they had nailed on his head, were tearing more of his skin, and his blood was streaming along with his sweat in the eyes and face. A stone struck him on the face and another on his sides. The pain made him dizzy and fell on the hot asphalt. His heavy cross fell over him. A young man from the crowd ran to help him, but two shots near his feet, from the soldiers of the guard who escorted him, stopped this man and forced him to turn back and hide inside the crowd.


He lifted his cross once again and with all the strength he had left to him, continued. His weak and tired body, exhausted by torture and hardship, lugged the heavy cross, with unbearable pain. The crowd around him continued to scream. Most of them were cursing at him, and they were blaming him for all the suffering of the world. The Media of Massive Manipulation had convinced them of this.

In the beginning, the "channels" had been fascinated by him, and they had devoted him, daily, many hours of live connection. Reporters were following him in all the places and every speech. Unfortunately, they had not yet managed to cover up live any of the miracles that sounded he had done. The world quickly embraced him and seemed to worship him as a god while his followers' number was growing tens of thousands every day. So he was a "product" that it was selling advertising time at prices that had risen to incredible heights.

But then the scenery dramatically changed. He began telling people that they had to kill their addiction to these Mass Media which were manipulating them. He started to explain to them how they were spreading lies and creating divisions and hatred to be able to gain from the unrest. He was shouting to the people that were following him: "Do not feed that Beast with your lives, stop the hate to let it die of hunger." Then he became dangerous. From a source of profit turned to be a source of risk for the profit. Then the almighty Mass Media turned against him. From Messiah, he became a fraud and a demagogue, and at the end, he has been accused as a terrorist.

This was convenient for the corrupted politicians, but also for the priests, who were getting wealthy at the expense of people seeking hope and consolation. When he started with his word to reveal their dirty purposes, he became a threat that had to come out of the scene in an exemplary way.

Thus, with a summary procedure, he was condemned as a terrorist, many false witnesses were found, and the sentence was death by crucifixion, considered to be the most dishonest death to die.


After pressure they accepted, the judges, decided that before execution he would have to be tortured until he declares public repentance. The millions of believers, he had acquired, constituted a potential threat, so they had to believe that they were victims of deception while at the same time repentance would restore the honor and image of the politicians and the priests.

But he remained silent against all torture. All he did was that he saved the life of his worst torturer when he was severely injured by a believer who managed to get to that point and shoot him. With a move, he healed the wound, but he did it in a way that eventually everyone thought the injury was far less frightening than what it initially seemed to be.

So he was now walking his last steps on this planet. He was stepping to his sacrifice, once again. Once again slandered, deprived, betrayed and tormented by the wickedness and ingratitude of the people. But he knew he had to do it until the end. It was his own choice. A choice of absolute freedom and love. He had to bring back the balance once again. To balance the evil, the material and spiritual corruption, the ingratitude, the hatred and the selfishness that had dominated the world, with his Love and his Sacrifice. So he knew he had to walk this path, absorbing as much as possible from the confusion of the crowd that surrounded him all the way.

Several people in the crowd were throwing objects or were pushing him. The "channels" were showing the whole drama live. There had been many videos of this already on the internet, and some had thousands of comments in no time! New food for the Beast! It was the same crowd that a few days ago cheered and had accepted him as a Savior. And now...


He had the power to stop them all, but he did not. He had the ability not to allow himself to go through the same martyrdom for another time, but he continued as if he was unable to react. He continued, in this infected atmosphere, infected by the blasphemies and the actions of the people, when even the wild beasts had hidden, not being able to see so much ingratitude. He continued though he knew what was waiting for him. He went on, and no one saw his tears mixed with his blood and sweat.

He was God and wept. He was crying for His children who had betrayed Him one more time. Once again, they had chosen the path of hatred and unhappiness instead of the way of love, peace, and happiness that He had tried to teach them. He came for the third time to be crucified since His Father had created the humans.

Two times, until now, the man had destroyed this world, and for the third time, his Creator had revived life and hope for a new beginning. And yet He was here again for the third time. There were some small differences in the place, time, stage of evolution of the "civilization" of people, but The Sacrifice was the same.

After His first Sacrifice, three world wars took place to wipe out life. The second time had required only one and not world war, in fact, to bring about the extinction.

And for the third time, the man had chosen the same path. And again, God had to purify man and give him new hopes by His blood.

He continued the way to his sacrifice, and His pain grew as He thought how many times would be repeating the same story before we, humanity, through our freedom, learn from our mistakes and decide to follow the path of Love. The way that will lead man to perfection and eternal bliss.

He was God, and He knew how many times this was going to happen. He wished one time in eternity to be wrong.


You could cancel them all at any time, but you did not refuse to drink the poison until the end, to show us from your Cross what Love can do. We will be eternally grateful to You, and our Resurrection will be our gift to You.

The Resurrection

Since I began to understand the world, Jesus became for me a form identical to the word of Love. It is almost impossible to me, to refer to Love without thinking of Him. Whenever I think of Him, my soul fills up with gratitude and will to strive to become a better person so that I can offer as much as I am able to the world. I know that I have become a better person because He came.

I do not care about the disagreements about whether He was a real God or whether He really resurrected. I honestly do not care. His word was Divine, it is the word of happiness, so for me, it is the Word of God. And if it was said by a human like me, it might be even more significant. The Love He taught, has brought Resurrection to my soul and to the soul of so many people who we would otherwise live miserable lives without Love. So even if He has not risen back then, He resurrects every day in our souls, and that is also Divine!

I know there will be those who will say that Jesus never existed, that He is a fantastic person. That does not matter. The same has been mentioned at least for another tremendous and beloved Master, Socrates. The word of Socrates has shaped Western philosophy, and Jesus' word gave life to people's faith in the Love, the blessing of service and offering, and altruism. All those who have adopted the words of at least one of these two great Masters have become better and happier people. If this can be achieved by some fantastic personalities, I do not need more proof of our divine origin.

It may be a feature of the world we have created with our choices. Every Hitler of this world leaves undeniable evidence of his existence while every Jesus moves to the limits of the imaginary.

I choose to change this world, to strive for the Resurrection of Love, to make the fantastic real and the Hitlers of this world an ancient fairy tale. I know we can. He whispers it daily in my heart. Even when I offer Him wine vinegar on a stalk of hyssop!

They say Love is still flowing from His Wounds...

— Sean Dragon

He gave his life for us

He fell upon the cross

To die for all of those

Who never mourn his loss

It wasn't meant for us

To feel the pain again

Tell me why, tell me why

A Thanksgiving

This story is an offering to a great Heart, my sister in Love, Nikki Khan and her beautiful family. She is a Supermom who is giving a daily "fight" with evil forces of injustice. We share the same dream for a world that chooses love instead of hate, we both believe in equality and Good. It is a thanksgiving to my beloved Sister because she is always ready to embrace the helpless and defend the right, which is obvious through her influential and powerful writings! Thank you, Nikki, for all the encouragement and the inspiration. Thank you because the world is a better place because you are living on it!

Thank you so much, my dear Kimberly, for your kind words!

You give me the strength to try my best!

God Bless you


Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on April 10, 2018:

I have the same belief, brother; His Love has saved us in so many ways!

I don't believe we are evil, too, but we have an evil way to treat each other. He and all the other Masters of Love have taught us the way to change our evil ways.

Thank you once again for your kind words, bro!

Much Love!

Kimberly Johnson from New Jersey on April 10, 2018:

This is so powerful, thank you for this. We need to keep spreading this message. You write so beautifully. :)

Liam D OConnor from Cork on April 10, 2018:

As I read this story, brother, I think that His Love is the reason we still exist. He brought the balance. Our egoistic madness - I don't believe we're evil - against His Love. Without this Love, I think we would've destroyed our kind.

Your story is a good memo! Keep on!

Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on April 05, 2018:

Thank you so much, Louise. I am glad you like it!

Thank you for your kindness to write a comment.

God Bless you!


Louise Powles from Norfolk, England on April 05, 2018:

That's a lovely piece of writing, Ioannis. I really enjoyed reading it, thankyou. =)

Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on April 03, 2018:

Your words are a great honour, Brother, and I am so grateful, but I am waiting for your critical questions.

My love is by your side my beloved LD!

Liam D OConnor from Cork on April 03, 2018:

My Brother, I am astonished! Speechless! I have no words to express my feelings about what I just read! I wil only agree with the good lady Dora! Maybe in time say something more.

I love you bro!

Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on April 03, 2018:

Dear Sister, Dora, thank you so much! Your comment is one of the best gifts I ever had! Thank you for seeing that is a piece of my heart!

I have betrayed Him so many times in my life, but He was always there, with open arms to embrace me and help me to forgive my self and become a better man. I am happy because I learn to love, through Him. And now as many say to me, He gave me the ability to write about Love. I thank Him one more time, and I wish to stand worthy of His gift.

Grateful for your help,

God Bless you.


Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on April 03, 2018:

Thank you, my dear Brother, Tim! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Yes, I believe Jesus is the meeting point of our prayers. He is a reflector that takes our Love, and He scatters it to the world, where is needed most. I think that He is Love in a form, we people can understand and learn. I have been blessed with many miracles because of Him and through Him. He is my Brother and is always by my side, and I know that is by your side too, and that is making us brothers!

I'm taking power from your prayers, Brother Tim, and I hope that you are taking from mine too.

Much Love and Gratitude.


Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on April 02, 2018:

Thank you for sharing your heart. "Our Resurrection will be our gift to You." I can imagine that He applauded this sentiment.

Tim Truzy from U.S.A. on April 02, 2018:

dearest brother,

Again, I will say my evening prayers and sleep knowing their are others in this world who believe in love, even when the walls of hate seek to separate us.

This is a wonderful statement:

"Since I began to understand the world, Jesus became for me a form identical to the word of Love. It is almost impossible to me, to refer to Love without thinking of Him. Whenever I think of Him, my soul fills up with gratitude and will to strive to become a better person . . .

Perfectly written, Sean.

Nikki is indeed a superb writer and seeks to find the good through her work. Thank you for this wonderful article.

The story you wrote here is creative while being informative for those who know Him. There was a popular extreme right-wing series, "Left Behind," which dwelt on "fear" as motivation to love the Lord. Your work focused on the "love," which He was in spite of all of our imperfections. Beautiful, brother.



Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on April 02, 2018:

I am happy that you like it, my Sister Nikki.

Grateful to know you, even only through your writings.

And I thank Manatita, too.

I so much agree with you!

Om Shanti, Sister!


Nikki Khan from London on April 02, 2018:

And thanks Manatita ji for your kind wishes,

You’re an inspiration for many and a great poet.

God bless you, Namasty!

Nikki Khan from London on April 02, 2018:

Jesus gave his life to save humanity and for the sake of love and this sacrifice bore fruit in form of a great movement to change the world to live with happiness and in light of peace.

And I’ve no wrods for your amazing offering to me, I’m just trying my bit to change this world with writings which sometimes hurt people but truth is always bitter and it must be explained to bring awakening.

Many thanks Sean brother for your appreciation.

You’re such an awesome person who is working hard to replace hatred with love.

May God bless you always!

Ioannis Arvanitis (author) from Greece, Almyros on April 01, 2018:

Thank you so much, my dear Brother! It is so true, God and the devotee are like a tree and its branches! And as we grow in Love, the whole world will follow. Love always has the way.

Thank you for your help to all this, it is priceless to me!

Much Love


manatita44 from london on April 01, 2018:

A powerful piece! Did you say that you are a physics teacher? You also seem to understand the politics of greed ... of economies ... of media manipulation. This is a gift in itself.

He had to die because they felt that he was usurping their power and when the Heart is cold and callous, we cannot see it any other way. That is how their graces worked. Who knows the ways of the Lord?

God and the devotee are like a tree and its branches. They need each other. Let us continue ... let us continue and three cheers to Nikki Khan. Happy Easter to Her.
