Because Christ is the God of heaven, and satan and his cohorts rule the earth. Why are both the satanic pagan gods holding up the same sign as "Christ?" Is it really Christ?
The sign was originally derived from a symbol used in Roman art to indicate speaking, and first gained popularity as a Christian symbol shortly after Constantine's issue of the Edict of Milan in 313 AD, allowing Christians to practice their religion freely, without the threat of persecution. Indeed, Constantine himself converted to Christianity, and Christian art flourished. In early images of Christ, one can see an early manifestation of the sign of benediction in which the thumb is closed over the palm, rather than open. As Christian art evolved, symbols, including Christ's hand gestures, took on deeper significance. With the thumb opened, the three open digits came to represent the Trinity (The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), while the two closed represented the dual nature of Christ as both man and God.
Well...Jesus said he is the word, the truth and the life.
So if you were to believe would you not say Jesus' words be comin' true?
No one else has ever said that.
If we say "Jesse was the word" and the words seem more real....man, who was this guy???

You see that makes a lot of sense now. I wondered where he got the inspiration for the swastika/Kanji.
It is amazing how people will deny he wasn't heavily influenced by religion Catholicism to be precise in lieu of all the evidence and his own statements. That pic right there should cinch it for most rational minds but be are not always rational.
1st, lets prove Jesus even existed, since we all know Christianity was based on the Greek texts they heavily edited; the Greeks got it from Sun Worship from the Nubians, and there WAS NO JESUS.

Alright, let's reset. First off, may I suggest that you don't insult folks who merely disagree with your position.
Disagreeing with you doesn't make anyone "wrong."
Secondly, you asked in a somewhat odd phrasing about "the ones who were once thought to be real have been proven not to exist."
We provided multiple examples which you disagree with, so perhaps you need to clarify your question?
Third, beyond all that, the discussion is not really about whether Jesus was a real, historically verifiable person, or not, but the meaning of the rather odd hand gesture seen in hundreds of Jesus images.
The "thumb up, two fingers extended, two fingers folded" gesture.
Any thoughts on that?
I am certain anyone reading this knows the history of the swastika. A simple google search is all it takes. Symbols dont seem to have any effect on me personally.
Last night my last two posts here were after a few beers and some frustration trying to answer obtuse posts. The mods were on point for deleting them.
My point was that some things do seem a little strange in that some of the things seem to be coming true...I do listen to apocalyptic preachers and like i said i am still mainly agnostic, but i have to admit that i enjoy the writings of John and now we know a little more about "wormwood" and the Chernobyl connection is a bit of a head scratcher.
I am still trying to get an answer as to which historical figures were believed to have existed and were shown not to exist. I mean actual humans.
That is a lot of conjecture all rolled into a few sentences. You assume some did.
So surely not Paul Bunyan. Seriously.
I do not see where Windword, Gryphon66 or Grimpachi were able to do this? Just a lot of noise and obfuscation...but even in obfuscation some things can be learned.
Grant it, i have to look for "John Henry", i know about "Frum" etc.
