I am the one who Olive oil is quoting and talking about.
I will go down the list and put more detail into it, since Olive Oil is basically quoting a highlight.
1. Religion in the name of Christ? Check.
2. Brought about by someone who comes after Jesus, while Jesus warns that which comes after him has nothing for him(Paul)? Check.
29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
Paul of course came after Jesus, and his writings make up nearly 50% of the new testament, more than Jesus himself. Which in itself is not so bad,
but the fact that he constantly contridicts Jesus on very important principles is. That will be laid out.
While some may say that it's great that "Jesus choose Paul", it completely ignores that Paul contridicts Jesus, and does things which Jesus
directly says not to do.
3. That man appeals to the political powers of this world? Check.
Paul of course has a book named after the political powers of the time. He appeals that all governments are not evil, but are of god - all of
them(romans 13). This is of course KEY in establishing the anti-christ 1 world government stuff.
Jesus does not submit to the powers of earth, he turns such things down. He just doesn't fight back because he realizes if he does then he would be
breaking the commandments. It is the fact that Jesus does not just submit to those powers and speaks against them that he is killed in the first
It's not submission to worldly authority as Paul says, but is instead merely a result of keeping the way and not committing sin.
4. Marriage of church and state as a result? Check.
Holy Roman Empire... I am shocked that anyone can even suggest this one isn't true. Again, Roman empire and the book of Romans. Coincidence?
5. Imbeded with "Pagan/Mystery Religion"? Check.
This one is a topic in itself. The entire Christian religion itself is Pagan. I always get a kick of Pagans who dislike Christianity and vice
versa. All your ceremonies, traditions and so forth are all of Pagan origin. Christianity basically turns Jesus into the "sun" and is nothing
but sun worship.
There is some understanding in the Pagan religion and so forth. However, it is the understanding of men, not of the father and the way of the tree
of life. Also, so riddled
in symbolism that it is mostly idol worship among the masses.
6. killing everyone who doesn't convert to their religion? Check.
7. Is not persecuted, but instead does the persecution. Check.
8. Has built it's following throw death and destruction and sin? Check.
The dark ages are pretty well documented, as are the crusades and so forth. These people did honestly believe they were doing the good and right
things, but they simply didn't understand unfortunately.
Christianity certainly isn't the only guilty part of this in the world, nor was it anything new. However, this is certainly not the way of Jesus
or the tree of life etc.
But the fact remains. Christianity got all it's power and influence through this manner and got it's power through the path/way of death and
destruction. They did not try to give people understanding really, in fact the bible itself was reserved to only the scribes/pharisees of
Christianity, and the average man was not even allowed to see the words of Jesus, much less understand them as even if they did happen to come across
the book itself, they were certainly not educated in the language of the bible.
Jesus scolds the Pharisees for trying to get religious converts. Saying they will travel the seas for a single convert, to turn him into a child of
hell. Of importance in this is notice - they carried the same scripture that Jesus speaks of, came from the same religion of Jesus, and yet still
they were converting them into an "anti-christ" religion. How can that be?
What is it that Jesus does differently? He gives understanding and wisdom. As required in order for someone to keep the commandments. If
someone lacks the understanding itself, then they will not keep the commandments.
Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for
To simply get someone to follow the scriptures, take the scriptures as authority and to follow the traditions of the religion was in the time of Jesus
to turn that person into a "child of hell". Because they will be blinded
to the understanding itself. Understanding which is btw
available through the father and doesn't need the scripture itself to be found. How do you think the people who wrote the scriptures found it?
Thus why Jesus told people - they were the authority, not the scribes. But Paul of course teaches the opposite. That all things are the
authority of the father - except YOU. And because YOU are not of the authority of the father, you must submit to it. I will speak on this at
the end, when I stick up for Paul.
28And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
Matthew 7 is btw nearly a direct chapter to the Christian Church, even though he was obviously talking about the Pharisees of the time.
9. Won't be happy until it's the 1 world religion? Check.
This is sad but true. Christianity has in fact worked towards this goal, and their entire vision of "the end" and when Jesus comes is to say that
Christianity will be the 1 world religion and all will follow it - because only they will be left.
However, there is a difference between 1 world religion of "Christ", and 1 world which has the understanding of it(holy spirit), which they will
10. Promotes ignorance and deception? Check.
Another sad but true. Christianity is in itself full of "replacements". Replacements are the reason why idolism is frowned upon. Because the
idols themselves end up becoming the replacement for what they are supposed to symbolize, and the understanding behind the idol will be blinded to the
Just like the Pharisees of the time of Jesus, that would get the converts, Christianity has done the same.
In fact, the truth on the entire subject is this. The pharisees had control of Judaism when Jesus was born. They conspired and killed him in
order to maintain that power, falsely accusing him of Blasphemy, when all he ever did was quote Psalm 82 to them. They first tried to get him to
join them and become the political king they wanted(to be a nation, where they turn away god in 2sam2). And since he wouldn't go along and
instead chose the will of the father - they killed him.
Then, since his words and such had gotten attention, they took up the symbolisms and sayings, along with their previous atrocities with what is now
the "OT", they proceeded to take over those people in the same exact manner they did so with Judaism, blind them with idols and so forth. And
so to do this, Saul the Pharisee becomes Paul the apostle. Who goes around selling the "name" of Jesus, while teaching another path. Paul is
the biggest contributor in the bible, but I think he quotes Jesus like 1 time or in that neighborhood. Yet, he will invoke the name of Jesus over
This is what a politician does. A politician is a sorcerer. They use words and symbols in order to "cast a spell" on people in order to gain
power over them. The symbolisms(like the cross) get their power because people will think that the person carrying that symbolism is one of them.
Just look at what GWB did and how many people voted for him because he was a Christian. The cross(symbolism) brought him the greatest power in the
world. This is a wolf in sheeps clothing(symbolisms and to claim to be something).
See the same thing in politics, and it was in politics that I learned to recognize it. Got your flag pin? Oh, if you don't have your flag pin,
then you aren't one of us. Why do you think you see the flag and such on the news over and over? Because it is to suggest that because it has
he symbolism and praises that, then they are automatically doing what is the interest of that. They aren't, and neither was Paul.
It is nothing for them to change symbolisms and so forth, why do they care what symbol gives them the power? How did the "gods of old" lose
their power? Because people quit believing in them, thus the symbolisms attached to them went away, and those who seek power just changed the
That is what Paul does. Praises Jesus the idol, but then teaches that which is against it. People accept Paul because they see - well he talks so
good about Jesus and such, he must be about Jesus. Realize, that this is how manipulation works in all things where there is corruption.
The only thing that can break that spell is understanding. Which is what Jesus tries to give, and is why he was killed. Take the entire thing
with moses and the sorcerers. His snake(wisdom/understanding) eats the other snakes. Their "spells" have no effect on him etc.
Such is the true magic of this world, if one is able to see it. Most aren't obviously. But those with understanding can't be blinded by such
magic, they "can't be plucked from the fathers hand".
continued. I haven't made the complete case for Paul in the other threads because it would have been off topic. Up next, the contridictions of
Paul and Jesus, and how Paul teaches a seperate path.
