Christianity’s Counterfeit Jesus
Why Jesus Left the Church
There has been a quiet controversy brewing within the modern Church for many decades now, perhaps even the past few centuries. But only recently has the controversy been bubbling more and more to the surface within the Information Age. The Church tries to ignore it; even deny it when confronted. But unfortunately, historical facts are very stubborn little rascals that mainstream Christianity no longer has the luxury of ignoring.
What’s the controversy?
The issue is that there is more than one “Jesus” being presented within the pages of the Church’s Bible.
One is the “historical” Jewish Jesus. And the other is the “traditional” Pagan (ie. Gentile) Jesus.
And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know which version of Jesus is the more authentic one.
Traditional vs. Historical
To understand how and why the early Church adopted a version of Jesus that wasn’t historically accurate, we need to forget what we know about the traditional Jesus the Church inaccurately taught us and return to the era in which Jesus and the Apostles and then later Church grew out of.
First, let us remind ourselves of who Jesus historically was: A Jew. A rabbi (teacher). Someone who taught within the Jewish Temple and other Jewish synagogues.
Yes, the Church plays lip service to the fact that Jesus was in fact Jewish, but then that is where Jesus’ Jewishness ends. As far as the Gentile (Pagan) Church is concerned, the “Jewish” label is all the pedigree Jesus is allowed to have.
As Christians, we are NEVER taught what it actually MEANS to BE Jewish. It is an aspect of Jesus and the Apostles that is hidden from us—on purpose. The Jewish Jesus is NEVER actually allowed to BE Jewish within the Pagan, Gentile-centric Church or its Bible for that matter. Ever.
Because the Church is NOT particularly Jewish. In fact, the Church is very UN-Jewish, as much as possible.
