THE TRUTH ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

 

“The most ridiculous concept ever perpetrated by Homo Sapiens is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of his creations, that he can be persuaded by their prayers, and becomes petulant if he does not receive this flattery. Yet this ridiculous notion, without one real shred of evidence to bolster it, has gone on to found one of the oldest, largest and least productive industries in history.” – Robert Heinlein

  • Why do Christians have such a high opinion of this guy? – Matt 15:22-28 – Describes an encounter between Jesus and a Gentile woman who begs him to heal her daughter. Jesus ignores the woman. She persists and he finally says to her, “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. It is not meet to take the children’s (Jews) bread and to cast it to dogs (Gentiles).” Woman won’t give up and eventually Jesus finally relents and heals the child. Christians want us to worship a God who refused to heal an innocent child until he was pressured into it. Wow.

 

  • How conveeeeeeenient – How convenient that almost (maybe all) all demons cast out of someone by Jesus immediately identify him as the son of God (for the benefit of those witnessing the spectacle). Luke 8, Luke 4:41, Mark 3:11, Mark 1:23 – 28…
  • How conveeeeeeenient II Malachi’s prophecy that told of the arrival of the Messiah clearly states that Elias (Elijah) would return before the Messiah does. When Jesus is confronted with this fact he states that Elias did come … but no one noticed. Matt 17:12. Simple enough! I guess we’ll just have to take his word for it. It’s not like he could have an ulterior motive or anything. He even tries to pass off the identity of Elias onto John the Baptist to help cement him as the Messiah but John denies that he is Elias. John 1:20, 21.

 

  • Jesus was a bigot – Matt 10:5, 6 – depicts Jesus instructing his workers to go out and spread his word, but only to the Jews. “Go not into the way of the Gentiles … but rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

 

  • Not really the welcome I was expecting, guys – In Luke 24:37 when Jesus rises from the dead and appears to the eleven apostles, they are terrified. Didn’t they know he would be returning? How little faith did they have in their own Messiah? Why so little preparation for his return? Most of Jesus’ followers just went back to life as normal or went into hiding. Lazarus’ return from the dead was met with more enthusiasm.

 

  • Was Jesus cool with animal sacrifice? – The people Jesus so dramatically drove from the temple were merchants who sold doves for the sacrifices people regularly made there. Yet Jesus never condemns the sacrifices themselves.

 

  • What’s with this guy? – Matthew 10:35, 36 – What is Jesus’ deal? “For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.” These are Jesus’ words.

 

  • As with all religions, at its core, it’s all about sex – Matt 25:1-13 – Jesus tells an allegory explaining how everyone must be prepared for his arrival at the end of the world: He tells of ten virgins (of course) awaiting their one bridegroom, but five forget to bring extra oil for the lamps and run out to get some. While they are away, the bridegroom arrives. When the virgins return to a locked door they implore him to open to them. He replies, “Verily I say unto you, I know you not.” This story is creepy not because it reflects the exclusive quality of Christianity, but for its depiction of ten virgins for one bridegroom.

 

  • Sorry, I didn’t recognize you Penis, er, I mean, Jesus – What did Jesus wear upon resurrection? He was in his same body but Luke 24:12 clearly says his grave clothes were left behind. Yet when he shows up with the apostles, he makes no mention of clothes nor do they. Is he naked?

 

  • Hey, aren’t you that Messiah fella? – If Jesus was so popular, why then did he need to be identified by Judas in the garden of Gethsemane?

 

  • Jesus wasn’t even the best Messiah – Considering the number of people claiming to be Messiah back then, it would have been nice if there could have been just a few unbiased witnesses to Jesus’ resurrection and ascension. After all, one ‘false’ Messiah had 400 followers when he was executed, that’s 280 more than Jesus had.

 

  • Jesus is kind of a dick – Luke 9:59-62 – depicts Jesus recruiting his disciples. When one asks if he can bury his recently deceased father, Jesus says, “Let the dead bury the dead.” And when another wishes to say farewell to his family back home, Jesus says, “No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God.” In Matt 4:21, 22 two other disciples are forced to leave their father to mend the fishing nets by himself.

 

  • What happened to Honour thy father and thy mother – John 2: 1-4 – Jesus to his mother, “Woman, what have I to do with thee?”

 

  • Please Jesus, chop it off – Matt 19:12 – reminds us that sex with women is unholy and Jesus gives extra commendation to eunuchs, especially those who castrate themselves.

 

  • Jesus: Not an Environmentalist – Matt 21:19 & Mark 11:13 – When Jesus gets hungry & finds a fig tree bearing no fruit, the reason being that it’s out of season, he curses it. “Let no fruit grow on thee henceforth forever.” The tree withers away on the spot. No one is with Jesus at the time so we’ll just have to take his word for it.

 

  • Jesus, so full of love and kindness – Matt 11:20-23 – Jesus damns whole cities to hell. “Woe unto thee, Chorazin! Woe unto thee, Bethsaida! … And thou, Capernaum … shalt be brought down to hell.”

 

  • Check out the big ego on Jesus – Matt 12:6“In this place is one greater than the Temple.” Matt 12:41 – “Behold, a greater than Jonas is here.” Matt 12:42“Behold, a greater than Soloman is here.”

  

  • Do as I say, not as I do – In Matt 5:22 Jesus says not to call anyone a fool but in Matt 23:17 he says of the Pharisees, “Ye fools and blind.” Matt 23:33“Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” Matt 12:34 “O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things?”

 

  • Fools for taking Jesus at his word – Luke 21:32 – Jesus, speaking of the second coming –“Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.” The Apostles actually believed they would be the first occupants of heaven from the rapture, not as a result of death. How could they have been so wrong?

 

  • Not even an original Messiah – Every one of Jesus’ so called miracles was preformed by another non Messiah in the bible before and/or after him.

 

  • Another odd choice – Why does Jesus choose Peter to be the foundation/cornerstone of the church when Peter earlier famously lies and denies Christ three times and later frightens two early converts to death over the matter of a few coins? And Jesus calls Peter ‘Satan’ at one point. Matt. 16:18, 23, Acts 5, Matt. 26:69-75.

 

  • Jesus: Not a member of PETA – Jesus casts a horde of demons out of a couple of protesters (because they must be possessed if they don’t dig the Messiah) and per the demons wishes, casts them into a herd of 2,000 pigs. The pigs then run violently into the sea and die. That herd must have been of great value to he who owned them but Jesus does not compensate this person. Besides, to eat swine they must have been Gentiles, so fuck ‘em! Matt. 8:28-33 and Mark 5:13.

 

  • Some of the ridiculous teachings/commands of Jesus: Accumulate no wealth; turn the other cheek; judge no ones behavior; don’t use your mind but be as children; do not question or philosophize; love those who mistreat you; avoid associating with the ‘dogs’ (Gentiles) of this world; sell all your possessions and give it to the poor (now you’re poor! Hoorah!); have no thought for the morrow (make no plans); everything you do and have is probably a sin; take no pleasure in this world; love those who treat you cruelly as much as those that are kind to you; mutilate yourself; be 100% certain Jesus bought your way into heaven through his torturous death; if the sight of someone of the opposite sexually arouses you, pluck out your eye; for special approval with God, become a eunuch; Servants, obey your masters; citizens, obey your rulers unquestioningly; children, obey your parents in all things; love your enemies; abandon your family and be rewarded in heaven; do not assert yourself; do not achieve prominence in this world, for the first shall be the last in heaven; if a criminal robs you of $50.00, give him another $50.00; etc. (By the way, how can love be a command? Love is an emotional response and can not be controlled.)

 

  • Bad Career move  – John 21 – describes how after Jesus’ resurrection, some disciples go back to their fishing jobs but somehow have totally forgotten how to do it. It takes Jesus telling them to toss their nets off the other side of their boats for them to catch anything. They catch so many (153) that they can’t haul up their nets (thanks a bunch, Jesus!). In the bible this suggestion is treated as another of Jesus’ miracles.

  1. The only “miracle” he ever caused was him DYING! No wonder he died the way he did! That all makes more sense now!

  2. it is interesting all these posts i have read. I really enjoyed each one of them. i wish some of my religious friends will visit this site. it will give them a reall wake up call to the true Jesus they talk about….. He is not a Holier than thou, timid, pious, unreallistic religious fella… He is real and practical and PURE LOVE at his Core…I LOVE Jesus dearly. I am willing to bet my life on Him. in any case, we all have the right to choose what we believe and what we scorn. i only hope you know exactly what you are doing. does anyone of us have all the answers to where this world came from? where we as home sapiens came from? where we are going after this world? what is the truth behind demons and angels? what really happens during and after death? Hell, Heaven, Satan, Witches etc… are these real or just religious symbols. well, i have made a solid choice… one that i am excited about. to be honest with you, i enjoyed reading these posts… because i never saw Jesus through a holier than thou spectacle as some of my religous friends want to portray… He is a revolutionary who is not afraid to defend what He says even with His life. He is not a man pleaser neither is He a seeker of fame and popularity. He is not even a seeker of wealth or riches. He came to warn some, expose some, teach some and save some… your postings clearly show where you stand wrt Jesus. but most importantly, He WILL JUDGE ALL one day!!! HA HA HA HA HA !!!!!!!!!

  3. Hi,

    You are saying Jesus is not God and I say He is. If He is found to be really no God, then I don’t get any penalty as the Bible says for those who don’t accept Him as their Lord and Saviour (God). But if, my friend, but if He were truly God as He said He is, will you not be too fool to make this choice of saying yes to the falsehood? Many of your qoutations are not true as it was meant. My friend; IF JESUS TRULY THE MESSIAH; WOULD IT NOT BE TOO A FOOL TO COMMIT SUCH THING AND BE TOO LATE THEN:

    I am not here to show you scriptures and justify the authencity of who Jesus is. Just read again the whole Bible and THINK again properly.

  4. Hi All,
    Enjoy your reading.
    Did you know your brain is only a processor?
    Did you know the source of our thoughts and ideas is not in our bran but enter from outside our body?
    Who’s thoughts are yours?
    What is the source of your thoughts?

    As a simple man and man of faith we cannot tell anyone else what to do, think or believe, suffice to say we just share our truth and you always have a choice to test that truth (not recommended as a good option) or research the facts for yourself. (highly recommended)

    A GOOD TIP-
    Lose the fear and have fun. We are blessed to enjoy this life and learn from all our experiences.

    What is written here is our truth, so we hope you keep The Faith but do not blindly believe us (blind beleive is why the world is as it is) do your own research! Seek, knock and receive!

    We admit we have not read all your claims, however: as men of faith, we have spent many hours studying the scriptures as we are instructed too in them and applying the principles.
    That said, we agree that the scriptures (all bibles today) have been corrupted! Pause-for a moment, consider in context what that may mean. When you comprehend this you may just start to see things in a different Light.

    A TEST-

    Go look in the mirror, what do you see? Might help to consider what you are looking at in a mirror is a reversal of where you stand! Left is right and right is left are they not? Yet up is still up and down still down are they not?. Something interesting for you to ponder!
    This is a simple method of opening and comprehending your brain processes (note: to understand in legal terms is to ‘stand under’ the authority of! for this reason in context we use here comprehend as the Lawful context as we have no authority other than to understand God/YHWH/Messiah/Jesus the Christ) and that can be a problem in ‘it’self, thanks to our EGO! (free will)
    Isn’t it amazing the Almighty Creater-YHWH gave us a CHOICE! “Wide is the road….. and narrow is the road….”
    (note: with regard the numerous names of God, a simple way to comprehend is to consider how many names you have- e.g. John, mate, husband, father, friend,uncle, brother, employee employer, rate payer, driver etc.the last 4 names are a topic for another subject matter) Remember ever saying i have been called lots of things/names?

    THE BRAIN-

    The brain! Left lobe – Pineal Gland – Right lobe.

    Left brain CARNAL-SELF (not good). Right brain SELF-RIGHTEOUS (not good) Hence, the ‘proven’ claim all mankind are born sinners! When talking of people and politics do you not hear the term extreme left or extreme right? The same principals are active all-around us are they not? Are either position at the top?

    Left lobe functions right side of the body right lobe function left side of body.(flesh) There is however another part of the brain that enables thought-creativity-inventiveness-intuition-imaginations, dreams and more to manifest, (spirit) it is known as the Pineal Gland. It is a doorway for the want of a better term.
    BE WARNED IF YOU GO THROUGH THAT DOOR IN THE WRONG FRAME OF MIND (mindset) ‘you’ may never come back the same, (this also can be for the better or worse, again only you can choose) if you do come back you ‘will’ surely be changed we are confident of that much.
    WARNING we suggest you do not knock on that door or even try it if you have no backbone (i.e. Spirit; specifically The Holy Spirit) the powers and principalties in heavenly places may devour your soul. You may return empty (not a good feeling) or you may return a broken vessel and no longer hold any water of life! (not a good outcome) However God promises He will stretch out His hand again for all those who sincerely hold to the Faith and He will fill you with new water of life.The river of life!
    We cannot fool God! So we highly recommend you do not try too! Fire burns!

    I believe while substantial historical fact is within scripture there is also a lot of ‘alligorical (spiritual) references’. To know the difference is commonly called discernment, whilst to be the difference is to be a disciple of Jesus the Christ. To be like minded!
    The claims on your site we have cross referenced we believe are false claims, not the truth although your claims are ‘true’ they are not based in truth, not frorm truth but the deciever, who is an expert at what he does, he is the ego manifested! When we attempt to read something (scriptural) that has been translated, in some cases; as the saying goes! “It was LOST in translation!” This is the easiest way to be lead astray by way of being mis-represented! Needless to say our representative is Jesus!

    We ought not to read the scripture from the ego or from a self righteous position (our own mindset) the message is more than our brain in its own strength wants to or can comprehend, the brain is a controling organ-very hard to tame-but not impossible! This is why we can simply say we speak the truth-experience but i find it difficult to convey those experiences in human language. (at least in terms that a non-beleiver can comprehend)

    Point to consider-DO DREAMS ALWAYS MAKE SENSE?
    Not when we try to comprehend them from an earthly perspective, however fom a Spiritual we are in fact emersed in that reality.
    (Does this mean we are really in a multiverse? Quatum physics may help some in comprehending this!)
    So if a dream can seem real/reality, can reality be as a dream?
    Fact-fiction and fiction-fact! Yes i know it is an oxymoron but is a dream not true and do our emotions still exist in a dream?

    Two examples are the dream stories Alice in Wonderland and Wizard of Oz. Both originated in reality/truth played out in fiction/dream and ended in reality/truth did they not?
    They were both allegorical stories of the world we live in, however that is another subject also. Those in Jesus The Christ/Holy Spirit are in this world but not of this world.

    Words are a powerful tool that may be used for good or evil however The Word or God is based on truth encompasses truth and fullfill’s the truth. “On this rock….(cornerstone)

    Quote: Matthew 22:36-40New King James Version (NKJV)

    36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”

    37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD (YHWH) your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

    We do not blame (blameless) since we too where once lost, but now we are found!
    So when we stand before the Cross we ought to put all ourself in Jesus’ position, consider left and right, but put both out of your mind and rise above.

    Isaiah 9:6New King James Version (NKJV)
    For unto us a Child is born,
    Unto us a Son is given;
    And the government will be upon His shoulder.
    And His name will be called
    Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

    Again! Don’t just believe me, exercise your own due-diligence and don’t be afraid to ask Jesus. What can be bad about unconditional love? (not touchy feely love but (Agape) godly love)

    THE MIND OF CHRIST!

    The answer is within you!

    May God’s blessings and His ‘Will’ be upon you all.
    Peace,love and light.
    By: Brian
    P.s. Strong’s Concordance a fine reference book for most all Hebrew and Greek translation of the words in the scriptures.
    Enjoy your reading all!
    Please share your thoughts with me again.
    We imagine and see the Holy Spirit going to work changing your website through you from “Doubting Thomas” to
    “Don’t be a doubting Thomas”
    Even Thomas was finally, fully convinced was he not?
    We all are susceptible to doubt, we are all imperfect, but that is not what the principles of Christ are truthfully about. They are in fact about bringing us all together in harmony by faith and compassion for all our brothers and sisters to manifest a perfect mankind again!
