Have you been looking for meaning in your life? Do you want to find happiness? Do you feel like something is missing? Have you recently become a Christian or renewed you faith hoping to find happiness? The church is good at several things. They are great at making you feel welcome. Most of the Christians you will meet are very warm and friendly. They have that look about them. They are inviting and more than happy to share their understanding of the Bible with you. For those of you who are new to Christianity, this feels great. You want what they say they have. But, do you know what they really have? Chances are they don’t even understand some of the basics of the Bible. I would like to take this opportunity to share some of the basics of the Bible and give you the places where you can look these things up for yourself.
To begin with, you must know that there is only one G-d. (I write it that way out of respect for Him.) Deuteronomy 6:4 tells us this. “4Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God; the Lord is one.” Notice how it says Hear, O Israel. This is because He is called the G-d of Israel. The nation of Israel is His chosen people. They have been charged with being the light to the nations. That means that the Jewish people are the ones whom G-d chose to bring His word to the rest of the world. Isaiah 49:6 teaches us this. You need to know this because the church is going to tell you that He is three equal parts. This does not agree with His word. Think about it like this. G-d is infinite. That means He has no beginning and no end. Something that is infinite cannot be divided. They will also tell you that Jesus is the light to the nations. Again, this does not agree with scripture. If you study the Bible long enough, you will discover that the church attempts to replace the nation of Israel with Jesus. It’s called “replacement theology”. What you need to understand is that Israel has not been replaced. The books of the prophets will attest to this very thing.
Essentially, the church made all of this up centuries ago. Christians of today have no idea that what they believe does not fit with scripture. They point to many things in the New Testament to prove their points. To be fair to you, there are some things you need to know about the New Testament. First, The gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, were not actually written by these people. The Catholic church admits that these names were added much later and attributed to them. No one knows who wrote them. The Catholic church was the only church for fifteen- hundred years. If you are a Protestant, know that everything you believe to be true as it pertains to Jesus comes from the Catholic church. They are the ones who wrote the Christian bible. Not only did they write it, they altered it from time to time as they saw fit. A seventh century New Testament is nothing like the New Testament of today.
The most important thing you can learn from this article is that Jesus did not die for your sins. This idea is the complete opposite of what scripture teaches. No one can die for the sins of another. Exodus 32, Deuteronomy 24, Jeremiah 31, Ezekiel 18, Psalms 49. These are all places where you can find exactly what I am telling you. There is not one place in the Hebrew Scriptures where one person dies for another person’s sins. It’s just not there. If you say that these are all Old Testament scriptures and that the New Testament is what you follow, there is a problem with your logic.
One of the biggest flaws of the New Testament is where Paul tells Timothy that all scripture of profitable for doctrine. (2 Timothy 3:16-17). When he wrote this, the New Testament didn’t exist. He was writing a letter not scripture. The only scriptures Paul had were the Hebrew Scriptures. So, if you are going to believe what Paul said, you must believe that the Hebrew Scriptures are profitable for doctrine. If you say otherwise, you make Paul a liar. So what can we learn from this? As you have already seen, the New Testament does not line up with scripture. So Paul must have misinterpreted the scriptures. The only other conclusion you can reach is that if he didn’t misinterpret the scriptures, he must have either lied or fabricated the whole thing in an effort to create a new religion. In truth, Christianity is the religion of Paul rather than the religion of Jesus.
Here is my proof. Jesus said to follow the Law of Moses and also that it would not pass away, (Matthew 5:18). Paul says that the law has passed away, Galatians 3: 23-25). So who is right Jesus or Paul? This is one of the mysteries of Christianity. If you ask your pastor which is right, he or she will always go with Paul. This is why I say it is the religion of Paul and not Jesus. So as a Christian, you are a follower of Paul and not Jesus. Know this also. No pastor will ever tell you this. Since I have proven this point to you through your own bible, what can you say? Can you honestly say you are a follower of Jesus and not keep the law? If you say this, you contradict Jesus himself.
So what’s the big deal if the New Testament doesn’t agree with scripture? Christianity makes the claim that Jesus was the messiah. The coming of the messiah was foretold by the Hebrew prophets. If you believe there will be a messiah then you must also believe that he will be as described by those prophets. The prophets say that he will be a man, the king of Israel, will build the third temple in Jerusalem, will bring universal knowledge of the G-d of Israel. They do not say he will be a god, a son of G-d, a forgiver of sins, without sin, or any of the other things the church claims about Jesus. He could not have been the messiah because he died. The things the church is telling you are lies. They have no base in scripture.
So, those nice people you meet every Sunday at church fit into one of two categories. They are either the ones being deceived or the ones doing the deceiving. It is a shame that so many people have been a part of such a deception.
