The Most Powerful Chapter in the Bible the Church Doesn’t Want You to Read
As we move into the Christmas season once again, I am reminded of just how enamored all of us become about the whole pagan-inspired Christian message of God sending someone to be born of a virgin just so they could be slaughtered on a Roman torture device, only to be resurrected three days (or so) later.
But what did such an event actually accomplish? What cost was there really if you get resurrected afterward? So your body dies but your soul, if you will, wasn’t killed. What was the point of all this? Symbolism?
Some churches teach that Jesus’ soul descended into hell, battled Hades (ie. Satan, the devil, Lucifer), took back some keys that were missing (like GOD needs a set of keys for something), and now after millennia of Human existence, people—past, present, and future—now have a mechanism to be redeemed (forgiven of their sins) by a bloody human sacrifice that GOD never ever asked for, let alone demanded.
So where did all of these dogmas, traditions, and beliefs really come from?
Let’s have a closer look…
Christianity is a “Pagan” Religion
Before you get your knickers in a twist, let’s define the term “Pagan”.
In the context of Biblical usage and events, “Pagan” is just another term for “Gentile”. Only, I’m not whitewashing the meaning by using a Church-approved term. And, yes, the term Gentile still comes with all of the Pagan baggage you’re thinking of, including the worship of icons (statues and objects used as idols for the purpose of veneration), birthday and fertility celebration days, and even bloody animal and human sacrifices.
But your church doesn’t want you thinking of Christianity in that way, even though most of what they teach is Gentle (ie. Pagan) tradition masquerading as the Word of God, words penned mostly from their pet Pagan/Jewish Apostle, well their ONLY apostle if you want to get right down to it, Paul.
What the Church doesn’t want you knowing is that MOST of what you and I were…
