[This passage appears within the book Further Sketches of the Rauschmonstrum]
I hear you had a vision of Jesus in the road to Damascus. Maybe you really do think you saw him, or maybe you’re just having a laugh on everyone. It doesn’t make a difference to me. What matters to me is how you use your time spreading your message henceforth.
The truth is Jesus of Nazareth was not the Son of God. He was just a deluded fellow I conned into bringing my plans into fruition. You can do with this information as you wish, I don’t care. You can quit this Christ stuff right now and go back to being a lawyer, or you can be one of the most important people who has ever lived. I am already certain of which choice you will make. Remember, facts are not important when it comes to persuading people, emotions and desires are what’s important.
I will have much more to discuss with you during the coming years.
Keep on Keeping On,
