Mythological “Jeromism” & Misleading Religious Formula
By Rehan Fernando –
These days Sri Lankans have found a new topic to continue their religious mythology to create more national crises. The plot of certain religious is quite successful since Jerome the so-called prophet has become a victim nowadays. Jerome Fernando got stuck with the concept of enlightenment since he overstressed Jesus the light of the world. Jerome has entirely forgotten or willingly has ignored that Jesus is appeared to be a light not only Christians but for the whole humanity. However, he did an overacting in mentioning Jesus’ name to create a superfluous religious Hullaballoo.
Difference between a prophet and an artificial king
The bible always speaks of contextual prophetic functions. Jesus himself fulfilled his prophetic function. However, biblical idea of a prophet goes beyond Jerome’s misuse and misconduct. A biblical prophet is ready to give his life and speak the truth. It is not a matter of just healing sicknesses and shouting with FM microphones. Instead, a real prophet has an obligation to represent God and his precepts. It is a matter of carrying God’s words who is just and faithful.
Mistakenly or consciously, Jerome has carried out a luxury type setting for his preaching. It is not only an odd myth, but also a wrong Christian formula. I think Jerome is appeared to be an artificial king. He is not capable of carrying God’s message which is just. Thus, Jerome’s formula shows a massive political assistance behind the screen. That is what I call “mythological Jeromism.”
