With regards to the dead sea scrolls as evidence of "originals":

"The biblical manuscripts from Qumran, which include at least fragments from every book of the Old Testament, except perhaps for the Book of Esther, provide a far older cross section of scriptural tradition than that available to scholars before. While some of the Qumran biblical manuscripts are nearly identical to the Masoretic, or traditional, Hebrew text of the Old Testament, some manuscripts of the books of Exodus and Samuel found in Cave Four exhibit dramatic differences in both language and content. In their astonishing range of textual variants, the Qumran biblical discoveries have prompted scholars to reconsider the once-accepted theories of the development of the modern biblical text from only three manuscript families: of the Masoretic text, of the Hebrew original of the Septuagint, and of the Samaritan Pentateuch. It is now becoming increasingly clear that the Old Testament scripture was extremely fluid until its canonization around A.D. 100."
Fagan, Brian M., and Charlotte Beck, The Oxford Companion to Archeology, entry on the "Dead sea scrolls", Oxford University Press, 1996

Basicly your defense so far has been the fact that you've heard there are originals but haven't done the research to prove it? You can post links to as many apologetics websites as you want, but as Carl Sagan so elegantly put it "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."

And the burden is on you to provide it, not me to prove there isnt any.

Oh. what if it happens like this: Ever since the patriot act. If someone up high that is a right wing fundamentalist, thinks your message, such as hermitics or (Dark.) grunge music, is inappropriate will they will harass you behind the scsnes on your computer?.

There needs to be a more watchful eye on the watchers. That's all I will say.

We have freedoms. Given to us by our forefathers. People died for us to have these freedoms. I intend to use them. Freewill in entertainment. As long as it doesn't severely harms any one in real. I know one thing. Myspace is run by christian fundamentalists.

Extreme claims are in Gods territory, so that's okay Carl.

May I suggest the answers should also coincide with a study of the historical societies who existed at the time, to help verify the existance of the originals? We know Jesus was a real man, if we are talking about the background. What verifies His earthly existance, or is He off the history charts in your eye? The bible manuscripts might well be proved by historical autobiographies as well, who spoke of their existance. I haven't checked out that other thread, and am looking to shift my interests there. With a little interest, I think you'll find the documents not only existed, but were as accurate to date as the originals.

Here is the way we could be studying and learning if we were more spiritual people.

But here some bare-bones proofs that scholarly research requires.

the Dead Sea Scolls are fake


the illuamnti/satan uses what god finds holy and perverts it. Satan wants to be god and is delusional..

Satan counterfeit prophecies and kingdom
all holy days, prophecy's will be perverted by the Illuminati


Everything fits together. All this system of lies are VERY WELL constructed. It took me 10 years to finally understand it.Now I know better.

You aren't understanding the whole point, and no one does entirely too. We are talking about God's Wisdom. The same that created the world you live in.

People LOVE their lies and DON'T want protection from God. God will GIVE THEM WHAT THEY WANT. And they'll see that they would die to have it back.
TOO LATE!
There's millions of people that are preaching truth. If you want to believe the tv evangelists or the occult woman or Gnostic lies on corner street, that's YOUR choice. BOTH are blinded

You can choose what ever you wish..but I think any thing not true Christian is Luciferian Lies, over lies, over propaganda, over half-truths, over plain simple mass truths that are used, altered, twisted and spinned by so many politicians and gurus.



ALL this is predicted and exposed in the Bible Prophecies.
Christianity isnt a relgion..its the truth and there's ONLY ONE Truth, it has NOTHING to do with me, my personal concepts, my beliefs, it's God Word, tell it to Him.

Truth is the Truth whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not, whether you believe it or not. Our own personal indoctrination, our beliefs, our (false and true) knowledge, our take on all this is IRRELEVANT to the Truth.
Truth doesn't give a # about our opinions, feelings, experiences, whatever.
The path is a narrow path and the Bible is the GREATEST supernatural guide book.

Religions are systems of control by "priesthoods" through fear and vain rituals and traditions. Churches = Church of Satan
The Bible EXPOSE these LIES. Jesus/God EXPOSE this in the Bible.
Truth doesn't care about what we believe or not, what we know or not. Truth is Truth whether we like it or not. Our indoctrination, ignorance, opinions, experiences, feelings, environment,... is irrelevant to the Truth.

before humans sined we had no blood

its all about blood.. Jesus was the last blood ritual to save us all.


Jesus is the only way to god..the narrow path

all other paths are the wide path(satan)

He Is the Only Way to God
"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.

Jesus rejects those who reject him

why Jesus? Look throughout the major world religions and you'll find that Buddha, Muhammad, Confucius and Moses all identified themselves as teachers or prophets.

None of them ever claimed to be equal to God. Surprisingly, Jesus did. That is what sets Jesus apart from all the others. He said God exists and you're looking at him. Though he talked about his Father in heaven, it was not from the position of separation, but of very close union, unique to all humankind. Jesus said that anyone who had seen Him had seen the Father, anyone who believed in him, believed in the Father

He said, "I am the light of the world, he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

he claimed attributes belonging only to God: to be able to forgive people of their sin, free them from habits of sin, give people a more abundant life and give them eternal life in heaven. Unlike other teachers who focused people on their words, Jesus pointed people to himself. He did not say, "follow my words and you will find truth." He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but through me."

John 1:1-3
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

John 1:14
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Jesus is God, it's an extension of Him, Wisdom.

God/Jesus/Holy Spirit
God is in all dimensions.
1 x 1 x 1= 1
NOT 1 + 1 + 1= 3

Stick with Bible and NOTHING else. NO priesthoods.

The Bible refer to the Great Deception, The Strong Delusion.
It refers to Satan counterfeit prophecies and kingdom.
It refers that all the world will be deceived, and almost the elect...

I believe that there will be a real rapture later after the fake. People in the world will believe that they receive a new name under God, maybe new body too(transhumanism, genetic,cloning...) and their just received the Mark of the Beast and the Day of the Lord is coming. I'm NOT dogmatic about this

It began decades ago. The Jews are despised by many since at least WW2. The Muslims are now viewed by many as terrorist nut bags (a tiny fraction indeed are but not as many as you would think by watching the news) And the Christians "priests" are a bunch of pedophiles.

All 3 are more and more commonly dismissed as ripoffs of ancient Babylonian Sun god religion which is historically absurd, yet it persists because people readily take the word of a "scholar". All 3 have been smeared to allow this

That's part of the Plan. The Great Work. The Phoenix Rising Out of its Ashes into the occult Luciferian Doctrine. The Bible expose all that, the Apostate "Christian Church" and these New Age Lie.

The "NWO" that we know is very "physical" and it's meant to be. The REAL NWO will come later, after a pre-planned WW3, a fake rapture, a fake tribulations, a fake everything. They will create their "Antichrist" that everybody will believe he is, a new "Hitler" guy, made to be brought down by the Savior, the REAL Antichrist, the REAL Deception, all coming down with "Aliens" and Ascended Masters, and The old gods and all that new age stuff. After is the REAL rapture, tribulations....



I would recommend " The age of Aquarius " by Keith Truth, or " A New world order " by professor Walter J Veith, " The Islamic connection " also by Veith. Also check out user " anonymoustruther2 ", on you tube.

THEY created the problem, and THEY will come with the Solution. You have NO power over them except through Jesus. If you want to believe that you’re “evolving” to a “Higher Consciousness”, that’s your choice. This is what THEY WANT YOU TO BELIEVE. THIS IS THE GREAT WORK.
What you know as the “NWO” (banking/money) is a ghost, the REAL NWO, is New Age, and New Man, and Post Humanism. It’s the Pure Luciferian Doctrine.

You believing that you are god IS THE PLAN.
THIS is the New Age and the New Man, a COMPLETE LIE and you WILL lose your soul in it.

I have NO problem with knowledge but TRUE Knowledge, TRUE Light, NOT False Knowledge. And gnosticism, mysticism, kabbalism, and so on on is FALSE Knowledge…. You want to follow that path, by my guess… I did, and NOTHING good came out of it



Anyone operating under the delusion that we are "god" need only take a moment to look around.

Mystery Babylon is the Mystery Schools Teachings, Kabbalah, from Babylon to Rome if you want. It’s Illuminism, it’s Luciferianism, it’s Gnosticism, it’s the New Age, the Masonic Lies, the Alchemist Philosopher Stone, the Great Work, the Magnus Opus. It’s the Spiritual Babylon. We fight a spiritual battle with physical consequences, with physical Babylons, from Economic USA Babylon, to the Religious ALL Powerful Holy See Babylon that will be the Universal Church in a Phoenix Rising New Age…

God is in control. Jesus is on the Throne.
Satan needs permission form God to do his bidding. And God will send the Strong Delusion.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The “truth” of Mysticism, or gnosticism is NOT the overall truth. True Christianity is,and I discovered that BEFORE becoming “Christian”.


no religions are from God, they comes from the Mystery Schools “Knowledge”, Luciferian Knowledge mixed with some truths. The Bible is not a religion, True Christianity is not a religion.

God didn’t create the religions and the priesthood, Man and Satan did.
God didn’t create the confusion and the lies, Man and Satan did.

False Light. False Knowledge.
A True Luciferian would NEVER deny that it’s Knowledge of secrecy and bonding.
True Knowledge liberates.

Luciferian “Light”. I say it’s Great Lies, over half-truths, over propaganda, over simple “truths” view in the eyes of Man with a wicked sinful heart. How can you judge of what good for you?

Lucifer is a Cherubim, even a Luciferian will tell you that Lucifer is a FINITE being, and God is INFINITE.
He want to be infinite, but it’s impossible.
Jesus is the Light



Gnosticism has never born positive fruits. Jesus Christ continues to bear the most delicious fruit of truth ever known.

initiating the masses into a Gnostic worldview will culminate in a “Strong Delusion send by God” as the world joins Satan & the final Antichrist in their War on God.

and their new world relgion

This is Mystery Babylon ..it is the Mystery Schools Teachings, Kabbalah, from Babylon to Rome if you want. It’s Illuminism, it’s Luciferianism, it’s Gnosticism, it’s the New Age, the Masonic Lies, the Alchemist Philosopher Stone, the Great Work, the Magnus Opus. It’s the Spiritual Babylon.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

gnostics texts are not the Word of God, so they never were “part of the Bible” its abvious when you read them that they dont belong..

Believe your new age lies if you want.
Constantine NEVER TOUCHED a Bible.
The Bible was ALREADY made more than 200 years BEFORE Constantine.
Seriously, listen to “A lamp in the Dark, open a real; history book, or shut up with gnostic lies.

What do you think the Pilgrim Church was?
And there a HUNDRED more answers, and REAL texts were use and reused,that’s why there’s no original texts anymore. SO WHAT? True Christian did the job of conserving the Scriptures by coping It.
You REALLY don’t know NOTHING about the Bible.

The Bible is mostly prophecy, and a supernatural guide book. It has NOTHING to do with religions. Jesus exposed religions.
Every important questions in everyones life is answered in the Bible.

As for the book of Enock..
Enoch is historical, it’s not meant to be taken as doctrine, but as reference to the past.
And not any “Enoch” book, the Ethiopian one, and MOST of it, and all the part written by Enoch himself was VERY biblical in ALL ways. NOTHING contradict the KJV when it’s from him, and even the rest was very good.
You can take MANY texts from other sources to see the links between them, like the stories of the flood of the rest of the world, or the nephilims, or the demons, or even the creation.

The Romen Catholic Church (NWO) has tried time and again to destroy/suppress the bible (Textus receptus/KJV eg) the Inquisition/Spanish Armada etc.

EVERYTHING in the Roman Cult is unblical and even ANTIchristian. They killed about 50 mill...ions of Bible Believing Christian. We had the Dark Ages BECAUSE of the Roman Cult, when the Light of the Word (the bible) wasn’t there. The papacy is completely antichristian. Jesus NEVER asked for a Dominion on Earth.
Peter NEVER went to Rome btw.
Mystery Babylon is the Mystery Schools under the Universal(Catholic) Church.

The Dark Ages ended when the Light of the Bible in German and English was for everyone. That's history ..

Watch “A Lamp in the Dark” here. (20 parts)




www.youtube.com...

The Bible and Jesus is ABSOLUTELY against the TRUE NWO, theosophy, communitarianism, collectivism, gnosticism, mysticism,.... and ABSOLUTELY AGAINST religions.

The MOST anti-religious person in the worls was JEsus-Christ...



www.youtube.com...

Project Blue Beam, will deceive many, be not one of them.
Many will be deceived into thinking Christ has come again (Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.)
Always remember, when He DOES come, the wicked will be “destroyed by the brightness of His coming”, the “elements will melt”, the dead in Christ will rise from their graves and those of us who are alive will follow them to be with Him in the clouds
Biblical Prophecies have been happening through Time and History. More than 90% is done.
Form the Fall of Rome, to the Islam Armies, to the Inquisition, to the French Revolution, to the USA, to the 20th Centruy, and the REAL NWO.

What the illuminati's pushing?

False religion, and New Age B.S.

true Christianity is the arch enemy of any such demonic endeavour, and is paramount to circumvent..]; therefore, true Christianity would have to be ignored or stamped out.

Classic New Age deceptions:
1) the Bible (KJV) was written by the Illuminati to control people – ignoring the fact that the pagan RC church tried to suppress/destroy it and its believers

2) that Christ was anything other than the Son of God – pharaoh, gnostic, freemason, alien/hybrid etc etc

3) the phrase “love and light”, claiming mankind can evolve spiritually, despite all the stark evidence to the contrary – but it sounds “lovely” doesn’t it?

people are supposed to say “ASSEMBLE by Constantine”, not “written by him”… you’re ignorant… and no, it’s not him who assembled it, that’s simple history. Bring these stupidities to an historian and he will laugh you out of his office. And it was guided by the holy-spirit, proven by prophecy… Who do you think wrote the occult books of Bailey and Blavatsky? through automatic writing, they were contactees… I believe God and not them


god/Jesus expose religions in the Bible. A religion is a system of control from ANY kind of “priesthood” through fear, lies, deception, money, sex, fame,… and/or through vain rituals and tradition. The Bible HAS NOTHING to do with this. It expose them all.

99% of all christian cult that existed comes from fake Occult Bibles. It started in 1881, with incorporation of illuminism and babylonian mystery religions in it with the Vaticanus and Sinaticus Texts. Blavatsky was part of this and SO MANY occultist. There’s not much cults, if none, that comes from the KJV. ALL Religions, and most of ism ending words are lies, WORK BASED for Salvation, NOT Trut Christianity, Faith and Grace ALONE

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.


The Only True Church is NOT physical but spiritual. And it’s Jesus-Christ.

To quote LM Richardson:

Early Christianity before Constantine was wonderfully diverse. It seemed that every ethnic group and nationality looked at who and what Jesus was with their own unique view. The Nag Hammadi library found in 1945 is an example of this diversity.

Jesus was born and taught the deep truths of the Holy Spirit in a Jewish society and it was natural for his followers to wrap his teachings within a context of the experiences and beliefs with which they could relate. It always happens that way. It’s how we humans are. Each new wrapping does not change the deep truths, only the way they are presented, only the surface of things.

Well, Constantine, with a Roman general’s mentality for organization, was having none of this diversity (He would see it as utter chaos) and as emperor he had the power to do something about it. He Romanized Christianity; that is, he took a diverse faith with many factions that at its heart stressed a one to one relationship with God and spiritual insight though the guidance of the Holy Spirit and turned it into a singular faith of Roman military and or political structure that said that the Church was Gods’ representative on earth and everyone had to go through it to be saved. Forget about personal experience; that was for monks, hidden, out of sight and of no influence. Over the next couple of hundred years, the now centralized Church killed, exiled or silenced any Christian who wouldn’t toe the line. They burned all of the esoteric writings they could get their hands on as well as any writing not approved by the hierarchy of the Church. Except in a few monasteries out of the centralized Church’s view, there went the master-disciple relationships, personal knowledge of the deep things of God. Just believe as the Church tells you and toe the line and you will be saved. This was a perfect way for a pagan Roman emperor and later Church officials to have power over the masses and that was all it was about. There went most any mainstream Christian’s chance of learning about a one to one relationship with God for the next thirteen hundred years.

He did not "create" anything he only told the church leaders to get in a room and take the text they think is most important and make 1 holy book out of it. The books of the Bible are just that old books/scrolls and yes many have been left out.

The funny thing is Constantine was an atheist until one day on the battle field when he "saw" Jesus.

And to Theone2000 i must say he did not edit the Bible it wasn't made yet
but yes there have been alot of books left out.

Um just so you know the Bible never said the earth is 6,000 years old.

I still believe in a young earth, but not necessarily 6000-7000 years old, nor billions, nor millions. History of Man is about 6-7000 years.


Other accounts/books/accounts that didn't make it to the bible was due to reasons such as of repeats or inaccurate accounts



if you believe the Nag Hammadi Library/gnostic scriptures you WILL believe the REAL NWO and the gnostic view of life of the NWO.

These were written centuries after the true Gospels and are false.


gnostics texts are not the Word of God, so they never were “part of the Bible” its obvious when you read them that they dont belong..

The Bible is the key to everything. It tells how many attempts will be made to deceive.



The Roman Cult did EVERYTHING they could to destroy the Bible. Seriously, learn history.

Here’s a crash course (20 parts) on the History of the Bible. It’s a masterpiece from a multiple award winner director.







The King James Version 1611 is perfect.

READ, read The Bible, research history and get your facts straight.

You want some spoon fed ideology?
No wonder people like zeitgeist

And Constantine vision was of a fallen angel or Lucifer telling him to go forth and conquer in this symbol( a vision of a cross in the sun (sun worshiping..false light)

the real agenda of the nwo, the newage, David Icke and other new agers that are pushing people into the one world system/religion

mainly on the whole false light thing.


the false light is Lucifer (new age) in the bible it says Lucifer is the evening star (venus) and jesus is the morning star

both are lights ..one is false and the other is truth

alot of new agers and occultists,Alice Bailiy, jordan Maxwell,David Ike, zeitgiest, New Dawn ect. are into sun worshiping.

also the nazi worshiped the dark sun. another false light

The swastikas original representation was that of an energy vortex.
it's a symbol of the sun, the black sun


all this is False "Knowledge"or false light... it's the Dark Light... it's occult "knowledge" from the gods, the Fallen Angels and the Nephilim, made to enslave us and give power to the wielder of such power.
The Spear of Destiny. This Great Deception from their gods will bring people to perdition and eternal death...darkness or trapped in the false astral spiritual dimensions

Fallen angels(ufos) = Babylon = Rome/Church = Nazi Germany = The New Age = the new Atlantis/One world religion

The Nazi was the EMBODIMENT of the all that can be "Occult". Today, the SAME BELIEFS are back, in the New Age movement.
Swastika, Black Sun, False light, Shambalah, Übermensch, Nazi Ancestral Research Division or Ahnenerbe, called the "Nazi Occult Bureau", Theosophy, eugenics, Atlantis, Hollow Earth, Nephilim "Arian" Blood, UFOs, Time Travel,..... all the gods, and goddess, all the research in Tibet and Antarctic... Operation HighJump. Project Blue beam . Project Venus




bill copper talks about it

He says it is that Mystery Babylon is the Mystery Schools Teachings
The new age

watch William Cooper's "Mystery Babylon Series" on youtube

Mystery Babylon is the Mystery Schools Teachings, Kabbalah, from Babylon(Atlantis) to Rome and today

It's Illuminism, it's Luciferianism, it's Gnosticism, it's the New Age, the Masonic Lies, the Alchemist Philosopher Stone, the Great Work, the Magnus Opus. It's the Spiritual Babylon. We fight a spiritual battle with physical consequences, with physical Babylons, from Economic USA Babylon, to the Religious ALL Powerful Holy See Babylon that will be the Universal Church in a Phoenix Rising New Age...

Its the one world religion
the Strong Delusion.

its using false knowledge/light to become god.
The illuminati started when the tower of Babylon was trying to be build.
The un capped pyramid on the dollar bill is now america or the new world order ..its still unfinished but the bible says it gets destroyed by Jesus

also the fallen angels tried this in heaven but got kicked out of heaven to earth

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.



and the bible says "Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters... And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH... And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, thees shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire... and the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. (Revelation 17:1-18)" And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven... And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen... And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached onto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities... Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire... And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning. Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls... The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing... For in one hour so great riches is come nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! ... And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. (Revelation 18:1-24) And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. (Genesis 11:4) And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel... (Genesis 11:5-9) The Fallen In Genesis, the cause of the biblical Flood is -- rather mysteriously -- associated with 'fallen angels', or 'giants'/'sons of God', more properly called the 'Nephilim': There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And God saw that the wickedness was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth... "The occult aspect of the rise of Hitler is a VERY important part of the whole scenario, and regardless what other researchers might say, I do claim that behind the power of Hitler were the same old secret societies that have influenced this planet negatively throughout the eons. Some might say it was the psychiatrists, others might say it was something else, and they may all be right in one way or the other. Its the same thing. It all narrows down to the ancient Illuminati and the Mystery Schools. The occult aspect of the Third Reich is something that has been quite suppressed in the media and in history books. Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-91) is without comparison the single person who has had the most influence in the Occult Sciences in the 19 Century. She was born in Ukraine with the name Von Hahn-Rottenstern. She was a very sensitive child, often sleep-walking and suffered from hallucinations. Tibet was a very popular place to travel to in the 19 Century when most Europeans were quite disillusioned. So did also Madame Blavatsky, who as an adult saw herself as a telepath and a psychic. She was also the author to the book Secret Doctrine. In this book she wrote that during her trip to Tibet, she was led into a secret room underneath a Tibetan monastery where she was shown texts of ancient occult and mystical secrets of the universe, which also was said to lay a route to the future course of history. The texts said that man once was pure spirit without a body, but had fallen down to base matter, darkness and chaos. She then was initiated into magical practicing, using esoteric symbols which learnt how the human race once again would rise into pure spirit. She claimed she was in current telepathic contact with Hidden Masters, who taught her the occult history of the human race. Blavatsky was taught that the most powerful symbol of these esoteric ones was the Swastika. She wrote there were 7 stages of evolution, she named them route races. The race which should rise again to true spirit she named Aryans. In Tibet the Swastika was known as the son of fire and creation, but in Madame Blavatsky's teachings the Swastika was the symbol of the "alleged" Aryan race. Guido Von List (1848-1919) was an eccentric person who played a significant part for the members of the Germanen Order(Teutonic Order). He claimed he came to understand the secrets of the Runes during an eye-operation. It was from him Hitler got fascinated by the magic of the runes. Von List also had visions that told him of an old Germanic Religion the worship of the god Wotan. From that point he wanted to rediscover the secrets of the vanished occult heritage of the priesthood. He knew that the Runes were an early form of writing, but he was convinced they had a deeper, esoteric meaning. He claimed the Runes were the key to the secret knowledge of the ancient Germanic peoples. Von List died in 1919, but his teachings survived through the National Socialists and came to play an important part in its insignia and it was mandatory for SS officers to learn the occult meanings of the Runic symbols. Von List taught that the Swastika was ...the very act of creation based on the Norse legend about the creation of the universe. By 1909 Von List became quite famous. He even got his own society dedicated to his occult teachings, called the List Society. He was very fascinated by Madame Blavatskys ideas, too, so he incorporated her occult teachings into his own teachings of German myth. The Germanic tribes now were called the Aryans. In his vision of a new Germanic State, there would be a strict hierarchy, people would obey without asking questions, only the males of the families would achieve full rights, if you were of an Aryan heritage you would get full citizenship, but you had to prove that you were a real Aryan first. And of course your duty was to keep the Aryan race clean, meaning you shouldnt cross-breed with lower beings. One might say that Guido Von List, born Austrian, was the forefather to Nazi Eugenics. But there was another man, who picked up the idea and got obsessed by it. His name was Jorg Lanz von Liebenfels. Narrated by Patrick Allen and produced in 1991.

Revelation 17:5 reads, “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Just from analysing scriptures alone from the Book of Revelation a consistent theme can be seen of an Apostate Church that persecuted the Christian Saints through the dark ages for 1260 years. Further analysis reveals that this Apostate Church is the key component of mystery Babylon and changed God’s law in favour of pagan traditions. The ultimate climax seen is God taking justice on this Apostate Church and those that supported her, for her crimes and fornication just before the second coming of Christ, which is also part of what is known as the Battle of Armageddon. Just before this happens the issue of 666 and the Mark of the Beast will be enforced and all will have the choice to bow down to the image made to this Apostate Church or to Worship God only and keep His Commandments. Those who willingly disobey God in favour of bowing down to the commandments of this Church and mystery Babylon, the mother of Harlots, will ultimately receive her Mark and “shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God.” Before continuing please allow me to emphasize that this document is not intended to offend any person or their Church. Some of the best missionaries and humanitarians have been part of this Apostate Church and have taken no part in her crimes. What the scripture refers to in these chapters of Revelation are not all the wonderful Christians that have been in this Church, but the system itself, so no offence is intended in any way towards people that belong to this Church or have ever been part of this Apostate Church. Much of this is very distressing and as much as it may hurt to hear these truths, we must teach what the Bible says as God’s true Church is called to do. God does not want mystery Babylon to remain a mystery. Clues to the identity of Mystery Babylon In Revelation, the Apostle John tells the tale of TWO WOMEN. One is dressed in pure white, revealing the purity of true faith and doctrine. This pure woman of Revelation 12 is committed to Christ. She’s absolutely loyal to Him and her heart burns with a love for Jesus. Nothing can break her loyalty to the One she loves so much. This woman represents all the faithful believers who have loved Jesus Christ, kept His commandments and been obedient to Him down through the ages. Revelation 17 pictures another woman. Now we have the opposite picture. Who is this woman in scarlet riding on a Beast? Mystery Babylon is a CHURCH: In the Bible a WOMAN symbolizes a CHURCH. This is an extremely important point that must absolutely not be overlooked as it proves beyond all shadow of a doubt that this “WOMAN” with mystery Babylon written upon Her head and riding a Beast (Kingdom) has to be a “Church.” Below are several scriptures that prove this is undeniable fact. The only question that then remains is which Church? Note that an unfaithful Church commits spiritual adultery. God also refers to Israel as a “Woman” (HER) as it represents the Old Testament Church that brought forth the Man child (Jesus Christ) in Revelation 12. Do not miss this really important point which is that God called Israel a “Harlot” and a “Whore” when she worshipped other gods and committed spiritual adultery. Which Church deleted the Commandment on idolatry and worshipped the SUN and has many pagan traditions? Which Church changed the Sabbath to SUNday in favour of SUN worship? Which Church has the statue of St Peter in St Peters Cathedral which was originally the statue of the pagan god Jupiter? This statue has had its foot kissed away and replaced several times because of the multitude that have bowed down to this statue and kissed its foot. This is unmistakable idolatry and especially when this was originally a pagan god. In the following verse you will note that God calls the fourth Commandment “MY” Sabbath. * Exodus 31:13 “Speak you also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily MY Sabbaths you shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that you may know that I am the LORD that does sanctify you.” Now note the following verse refers to the ceremonial sabbaths and the various feasts days and new moons which were associated with a temporary law that was for Israel only. It is called the Book of the law, Mosaic Law and the ordinances. The term Ceremonial law is also used. Speaking of Israel, note that God calls them HER Sabbaths and HER feast days etc. Israel is all through the Old Testament referred to as a “Woman” (HER) and when she worshipped other gods was called a “Harlot.” * Hosea 2:11 “I will also cause all HER mirth to cease, HER feast days, HER new moons, and HER sabbaths, and all HER solemn feasts. When the Church apostatized it was compared with a corrupt Woman * Jeremiah 3:1-25 “…If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man's, shall he return unto her again? ...but you have played the HARLOT with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the LORD. 2 …you have polluted the land with your WHOREDOMS and with your wickedness. 3 …you hadst a WHORE'S FOREHEAD, you refusedst to be ashamed… 6 The LORD said also unto me… Have you seen that which backsliding Israel has done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there has played the HARLOT… 8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed ADULTERY I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the HARLOT also… 20 Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have you dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, saith the LORD.” * Ezekiel 16:26-32 “You have also committed FORNICATION with the Egyptians your neighbours, great of flesh; and have increased your WHOREDOMS, to provoke me to anger… 28 You have played the WHORE also with the Assyrians, because you were unsatiable; yes, you have played the HARLOT with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied. 30 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord God, seeing you doest all these things, the work of an imperious WHORISH WOMAN; 31 In that you buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and have not been as an HARLOT, in that you scornest hire; 32 But as a wife that committeth ADULTERY, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!” * Revelation 17:1-3 “…Come hither; I will show unto you the judgment of the great WHORE that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed FORNICATION, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her FORNICATION. 3 …I saw a WOMAN sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy… 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON the great, the MOTHER OF HARLOTS and abominations of the earth.” God’s true Church is frequently represented as a Woman * Isaiah 54:5-6 “For your Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called. 6 For the LORD has called you as a WOMAN forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when you were refused, saith your God.” * 2 Corinthians 11:2 “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” * Ephesians 5:31-32 “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning CHRIST AND THE CHURCH.” Christ is represented as the Bridegroom and the Church is the bride which of course is a “Woman.” * Matthew 9:14-15 “Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but your disciples fast not? 15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.” * Revelation 19:7-8 “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his WIFE has made HERSELF ready. 8 And to HER was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.” * Revelation 12:1 “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a WOMAN clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:” Some have wrongly concluded that this woman is Mary but the following verse demonstrates that this woman represents God’s true Church by the symbolism used. The time period here represents the 1260 years called the dark ages where the Church had to flee into the wilderness to survive the persecution. Mary did not live for 1260 years or have eagles wings! * Revelation 12:14 “And to the WOMAN were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.” Mystery Babylon is a CORRUPT Church: Just as a pure woman represents a pure Church, a corrupt woman represents a corrupt Church. The woman in white is Christ’s bride, the true Church. But Revelation 17:1, 15-16 and 19:2 call this second woman a “WHORE” or “HARLOT”, a fallen Church teaching false doctrines. Mystery Babylon is a RICH Church: This symbolic wicked woman, this corrupt Church is a rich one with gorgeous display. Revelation 17:4 says she’s “decked with GOLD and PRECIOUS STONES and PEARLS, having a GOLDEN cup in her hand.” Which Church would you say is the richest in the world? Mystery Babylon is a Church built on SEVEN HILLS or MOUNTAINS: This identification given in Revelation 17:9, is impressive and clear, for ROME is proverbial as “the city built on seven hills.” Webster’s large unabridged dictionary says this under the entry “seven-hilled”: “as, the SEVEN-HILLED CITY, that is, ROME, Italy.” Furthermore, Revelation 17:18 tells John, “The woman whom you saw is that GREAT CITY which reigns over the kings of the earth.” John wrote this using the present tense for the word “reigns” and he knew as well as anyone else that “that great city” was ROME. Mystery Babylon is a LARGE, WORLDWIDE Church: She sits on “many WATERS,” explained as being many “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” Revelation 17:1 and 15. The very word catholic means “universal,” and the Papal Church has the largest, most widespread membership in Christendom. Mystery Babylon is a Church that revives BABYLON’S pagan teachings: “On her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT...” Revelation 17:5. Long before John wrote the Book of Revelation, the ancient city of Babylon had been completely destroyed and never rebuilt. For centuries it lay in ruins and had faded into insignificance. The apostle Peter could not have been referring to literal Babylon when he wrote in 1 Peter 5:13 that: “She who is in Babylon ... greets you.” For there was no Church or any other human institution in the desolate ruins of ancient Babylon. He was referring to ROME as all authorities agree. It is easy to see why early Christians used “Babylon” as a code word or nickname for Rome, for there are many striking parallels between the twin cities of literal Babylon of ancient times and figurative “Babylon” or Rome. Consider just a few: Babylon was the dominant warring power of its day and Rome was the dominant warring power of its own era. Babylon conquered Israel and centuries later, Rome also conquered Israel. Babylon destroyed the first Jerusalem Temple and Rome destroyed the second. Each carried sacred vessels from the Jewish Temple back to Babylon in the east and Rome in the west; each completely destroyed and devastated the city of Jerusalem; each carried away surviving Jews into captivity. Rome was Babylon all over again. As Babylon’s “carbon copy,” Rome provides a perfect example of history repeating itself! But more to the point, this woman who sits on seven hills which is this Church located in Rome, has revived the same pagan teachings that ancient Babylon taught ages ago. She baptizes them, sanctifies them, and brings them into the Christian Church. Ages ago, when presumptuous men tried to build the Tower of Babel at Babylon, God confused their language. Genesis 11:1-9. So here in the last book of the Bible, “Babylon” is a spiritual term referring to confusion, not the confusion of languages in the Old Testament but religious confusion as the Church drifted away from God’s Word. Mystery Babylon is a RELIGIOUS power dominating the CIVIL powers: Revelation 17:3 and 7 tell us the harlot, or fallen Church, is RIDING the beast. Daniel 7:17 and 23 tell us a beast represent a king or kingdom. When we ride a horse, we direct it and control it, so the picture God gives here is of a Church dominating the civil power. For centuries, the Papacy dictated to kings. When she wanted to punish or execute any who dared to question her teaching, she would often call on the police power of the state. Revelation 17:2 describes this harlot: “with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication.” She has influence over the kings of the earth, great influence over heads of state. Today, unlike other Churches, the Vatican exchanges ambassadors with every major nation on earth. They come to her city on seven mountains, and they bow before her, having “lived luxuriously with her.” Revelation 18:9 The Harlot and NATURAL Immortality: Sincere Catholics often bow down before a statue of a SAINT and devoutly pray, even though the saint is DEAD. But the Roman Church doesn’t teach that they’re dead. Even though the idea that man’s soul is naturally immortal is a PAGAN one. All the ancient pagan religions, without exception had the idea that the soul, or man’s essential being, was immortal. That non-biblical concept, inherited from Babylon was a common thread running through them all. In Egypt for instance, the pyramids were great monuments, great houses for the dead to hold their immortal spirits. But the heathen idea of man’s soul being naturally immortal comes from Egypt and Babylon and Greece, not the Bible whose teaching directly contradicts it. See such verses as 1 Timothy 6:15-16, Ezekiel 18:4, 20, Ecclesiastes 9:5, Psalm 6:5; 13:3; 115:17, John 11:11-14, Ephesians 5:14 etc. The Harlot and IMAGE Worship: Many false doctrines entered the Church, but let’s focus on just three: IMAGE worship, IMMORTALITY of the soul, and SUN worship. First of all, Babylon was the center of idol worship. Everywhere you turned there were images, idols representing the pagan gods, not just statues of Bel-Marduk, their chief god. King Nebuchadnezzar set up a huge golden idol and commanded all to bow down before it. But God’s Second Commandment in Exodus 20:4-5 FORBIDS using images in religious worship, FORBIDS bowing down before them. Today the Papal Church not only fosters those very things but also has DELETED the Second Commandment from its catechisms (official training manuals). The Harlot and SUN Worship: The main deity of Babylon and Egypt was the Sun god. Astrology and worship of the heavens originated in Babylon. But God calls it one of the greatest of “abominations” in Ezekiel 8:15-16. Roman Emperor Constantine was a sun worshiper who never gave it up. The Roman Church disregards not only the Second Commandment about image worship but also the Fourth Commandment about the Creator’s Seventh-day Sabbath, substituting the unscriptural SUNDAY. Mystery Babylon is the Mother of Harlots: This is because SHE has continued to have a massive impact on what truly does matter to God, i.e., His Church. She is the root of many false doctrines, has changed God’s law and shed the blood of millions of Christians etc. When Israel committed spiritual adultery, God called His Old Testament Church a “WHORE”, a “HARLOT” and a “WHORISH WOMAN” and accused her of “FORNICATION” and “ADULTERY.” The Catholic Church is guilty of much worse than Israel. In a recent address to the nations, Pope Benedict caused a major uproar among many Churches as he referred to the Catholic Church as being the “MOTHER” Church and called for all the daughter Churches to come back to HER. They are referred to as daughter Churches because they originally came from the Catholic Church, eg: Martin Luther, who had been a Catholic priest established the Lutheran Church. Sadly, many of the daughter Churches have also ignorantly inherited various false doctrines and this is why SHE is called the “MOTHER OF HARLOTS” as is Mystery Babylon. See mark of the beast and paganism for many images that reveal more on why God also calls her Babylon. See also the origins of 666 and how it relates to Babylon and the Catholic Church. The Testimony of History: * “It has often been charged… that Catholicism is overlaid with many pagan incrustations. Catholicism is ready to accept that accusation and even to make it her boast… the great god Pan is not really dead, he is baptized” — The Story of Catholicism p 37. * “The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; votive offerings on recovery from illness; holy water; asylums; holydays and seasons, use of calendars, processions, blessings on the fields; sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure, the ring in marriage, turning to the East, images at a later date, perhaps the ecclesiastical chant, and the Kyrie Eleison are all of pagan origin, and sanctified by their adoption into the Church.” — An Essay on the The Development of the Christian Doctrine John Henry “Cardinal Newman” p.373. * “It is interesting to note how often our Church has availed herself of practices which were in common use among pagans … Thus it is true, in a certain sense, that some Catholic rites and ceremonies are a reproduction of those of pagan creeds…” — (The Externals of the Catholic Church, Her Government, Ceremonies, Festivals, Sacramentals and Devotions, by John F. Sullivan, p 156, published by P.J. Kennedy, NY, 1942). * “The Sun was a foremost god with heathendom. ... The sun has worshippers at this hour in Persia and other lands. ... The PAGAN Sunday dedicated to Balder, became the Christian Sunday, sacred to Jesus.” — Catholic William Gildea, Doctor of Divinity, wrote in The Catholic World, March, 1894, page 809. * Doctor Alexander Hislop, in his classic work, The Two Babylon’s, page 105, says this: “To conciliate the Pagans to nominal Christianity, Rome, pursuing its usual policy, took measures to get the Christian and Pagan festivals [that’s the Sabbath and Sunday] amalgamated, and ... to get Paganism and Christianity now far sunk in idolatry in this as in so many other things, to shake hands.” He says further: “A glance at the main pillars of the Papal system will sufficiently prove that its doctrine and discipline in all essential respects have been derived from BABYLON.” * “In ancient Babylonia the SUN was WORSHIPPED from immemorial antiquity.” — Sir James G. Frazer, an authoritative scholar, makes this statement in his book The Worship of Nature, Volume 1, page 529. * “The doctrine of natural, as distinguished from Christian, immortality ... crept into the Church, by a BACK DOOR. ... When arguments are offered for the purely natural immortality of the soul, they are rarely, if ever, derived from Scripture. ... The natural immortality of the soul is a doctrine wholly unknown to the Holy Scriptures, and standing on no higher plane than that of ... PHILOSOPHICAL OPINION ... of philosophical speculations DISGUISED as truths of Divine Revelation.” — William E. Gladstone, four-time Prime Minister of Great Britain and a theologian in his own right, wrote in Studies Subsidiary to the Works of Bishop Butler, pp. 195-198. * “The adoration of idols that is in Babylon was succeeded by the adoration of saints.” — Henry Thomas Buckle, a world-famous historian, says in his book The History of Civilization, Volume 1, page 188. * The book Catholic Belief, by Roman Catholic scholar Father Joseph Faà di Bruno, page 45, states this: “Like two sacred rivers flowing from Paradise, the Bible AND divine Tradition contain the Word of God, the precious gems of revealed truths. Though these two divine streams are in themselves, on account of their divine origin, of EQUAL sacredness, and are both full of revealed truths, still, of the two, Tradition is to us MORE clear and safe.” Are the traditions, customs and practices of man safer than the Bible? Rome baptizes tradition with the word “divine” and dares to hold it above the Bible. * “Reason and sense demand the acceptance of one or the other of these alternatives: either Protestantism and the keeping holy of Saturday, or Catholicity and the keeping holy of Sunday. Compromise is IMPOSSIBLE.” — Cardinal James Gibbons, archbishop of Baltimore and noted writer, said in The Catholic Mirror, December 23, 1893. * “One cannot well refer to those cults of Babylon and Egypt and the rest as DEAD religions. For the echo of their ancient thunder is still to be heard reverberating in almost every form of faith existing today. Ancient Babylonian image worship is in the church today. Ancient Babylonian sun worship is there. Ancient Babylonian belief in the immortality of the soul is there. Yes, the echo of that thunder is still heard in the church today!” — Lewis Brown says this in The Believing World, page 112. * “His coins bore on the one side the letters of the name of Christ; on the other, the figure of the SUN GOD, as if he could not bear to relinquish the patronage of the bright luminary.” — Historian Arthur P. Stanley in his book, The History of the Eastern Church, page 184, says this about the Roman Emperor Constantine.

It's funny how bibically ignorant swine, with no knowledge whatsoever on the Holy bible bark and spew out lies, the fact that every prophecy that Jesus Christ (Y'shua ) has said has come to pass, is coming to pass and will come to pass, (look at your history and quit typing like drop outs..) and again funny how you with your false doctrines come and try and prove what is truth a lie, only to justify that you believe that nothing exploded and became everything. Lulz. You're fail trolls, and I study the Bible by the way, come at me brah, the Dead Sea Scrolls prove the King James Version of the Bible in its entirety which i why the early church (Christians) were killed for going against Roman Catholic beliefs. I have read the Bible from cover to cover and study it on the daily, as it is my profession. The fact that my Lord and Savior did not care for things of this world, and I gather that by the many verses that back me up, proves that yes, He did say render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's. Also, the Roman Catholic Bible has perverted doctrines, the KJV Bible, the HOLY BIBLE altogether has more than enough evidence to back itself up and not to mention if anyone made it past the 8th grade, they would clearly see that most of the prophecy has come to pass. If you're not Christian, my advice is stay out of trying to foolishly type things in which back up your own claims which are mind you - made in ignorance. Tell me, do you speak Greek or Hebrew at all? I doubt it. Matter of fact, I know you don't, if you did, you would not be so stupid.
Ignorance is bliss I suppose.

Don't confuse 6,000 years old with 6,000 years of sin. Again, the Bible did not say how far into the years it was before Eve sinned. So that logic is flawed, if you are Christian, my argument is not with you, it is with the others. Many non-Christians are also ignorant to the fact that the serpent did not always go on its belly, which is why God (Elohim) said "On your belly you shall go and eat dust..." They're pretty ignorant to many facts in the Bible. Like the fact that the lineage of my Lord is traced back through to Adam and then to Abraham and thus some were left out... showing 14 generations. I challenge someone to prove to us the Bible is false, I challenge a concubine of Satan to try and say that the Alexandrian text was more accurate than the Antioch and that it was stolen from Alexandria, In fact, I have loads of time this month. Like I said, come at me, brah. Believe me, us legit Christian scholars have heard it all and at the end of the day, all we can say is Lulz. Hey if you don't believe, you're the one who's dead inside, but the moment you try and twist the scripture (to which a Pagan could not possibly comprehend anyway... ) then I will jump on you like there is no tomorrow.

Luciferans are stupid. xD See I studied all religion (I am Christian by the way, I don't advise those who are weak in faith to do this, I just wanted a good laugh) .. See Lucifer is no longer his name, Satan lost that name when he fell from grace. The age of Aquarius? Oh really, tell me then why do all the magazines differ and contradict eachother greatly whilst comparing them? Pagans are sad and pretty much dead inside. And before someone tells me not to judge, the Bible says we should judge and test all things and hold fast to that which is true. Alas, the love eachother part so people can know that ye are my disciples ... Jesus is speaking to the apostles there, saying to love eachother as He has loved them and that applies to Christians only, not Pagans. In fact, we Christians are told not to be unequally yoked. So we go out into the world to preach and when they reject, we withdraw.. "Cast not what is holy before swine." "The dogs are not allowed inside the gates to the new Jerusalem." I have to admit, it's Pagans that began all the scripture twisting and they have no idea what they're barking about. They are called dogs and swine. It is what it is. And yes I am a real Christian, I just do not hold back whence dealing with the stupidity of the masses. I hold fast to that which is true and Jesus is His name. So again to Christians here, I have no problem with you and if you have a problem with what I have typed, check your records. Again, I read the Bible inside and out and study on the meaning of the verses. Again, the non-Christians just pull lies out of thin air and they've no clue as to what they're even spewing out. They are of their father the devil. Another thing, it's funny to us Christians when we hear so called Atheists gasp "Oh my God".. The Almighty sure makes a joke out of them. And they will give account because by saying that, they bear witness against themselves . All should repent of their false doctrines and know that Y'shua (Jesus) came into the world and led a sinless life, He died, was buried and three days later He rose. Oh and by the way, The Divinci Code was complete folly, check out the book Breaking the Divinci Code, and quit wasting our time, man. Everytime a Pagan lies about Jesus, we Christians go by and clean up the stupidity. It's something I will always do and I am way more skilled than you are. Talk about someone I love, you will be corrected and it will be shameful to you. I have shut many up. =D

It's actually spelled Qur'an or Koran and that book was written by a false prophet, Mohammed. Allah is not the God of Israel. Not at all. The Muslims worship the anti-Christ and the Jesus they wrote about in the Koran, is NOT the Jesus Christ in the Holy Bible. Eerily the fake savior to the Muslims preached about in the Koran is exactly the anti-Christ we are warned about in the Holy Bible. Do not be fooled people. The Koran is in reverse. They also give lots of attention to Mary. See, the truest Bible is the trustworthy King James Bible. And yes, if anyone talks about the Bible falsely, they should be able to explain it. The fact is, they can't. Not only are they blind, but they haven't the intellect to.

Jesus Christ is AWESOMENESS! Before the building of the tower of Babel, is when Satan introduced Paganism through a man called Nimrod and his harlot wife. But in truth Christianity is the first and the last. There was no religion or way of life before Christianity. To those who ignorantly think Christianity began when Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem - are deeply ignorant. Jesus Christ always existed. John 1:1.... and etc...................... I mean the whole Bible has Jesus Christ written all over it.

I can't wait until Jesus Christ comes back. Come Lord Jesus.

The Koran was written 400 years ago and if the scripture was not copied, it was twisted. Get your story straight.

Your sheer denial of reality astounds me. The assertion that "thousands upon thousands" of originals exist is at best laughable and at worst woefully ignorant. The bible as a historical record is also a statement who's validity is severly questionable, as I am sure most people would agree that the earth is more than 6,000 years old not too mention any of the other numerouse historical INaccuracies the bible contains. And most early writings would have been in aramaic, a precursor to the modern hebrew and arabic languages.

Agreed. The "thousands of documents" Christians often refer to are copies of copies, there is not one shred of original documentation, because the Church ordered all of these burned in a purge to cement their immense power, and to further the lie of the NT. What Constantine did was provide the local Christians with a new religion and a new God that was a man who could defeat death, which was a reality in those days. I have posted about this very thing more than once in here.

Dear OP,

There will most probably be no way to find out the truth of the matter, for those accused are long dead. What had happened, is the past, and gone.

Today, we, the present, live in their legacy.

However, the crux of the issue is not whether Constantine altered or did not altered the bible, rather, the important question is - Had that legacy progressed or hindered our progress and evolution?

A supernatural event most certainly happened in mankind's past, which was significant enough to be recorded by a group of humans, or several as our current archeological and anthropological studies indicate, of our ancient past. From flint tools to microwave ovens of today.

We indeed had evolved. Teachings by a divine being is not 'religion' per se, but rather, a guide to civilisation. And the fact of our history, through archeology and anthroplogy, proves we mankind had evolve from jungles to cities, to even the first tentative steps to the stars.

The Bible was region specific, focussed upon a group of humans. However, there were other records which proves those events in the Bible were true, and recorded in stone carvings by other groups of humans. Thus, civilisation was not solely given to that biblical specific group, but to different groups in the various regions of Earth, separated by vast distances and geological barriers and even culture.

Therefore, the intelligent man cannot be so stupidly arrogant to proclaim that the teachings for civlisation was exclusive and only for one group of humans. Evidences proved such beliefs wrong and regressive. Who dares claim to know the way of our common Creator, the Supreme Being known by all mankind under many names and cultures, across time and space?

Our Messiah was sent to Earth, to the region of Israel, to teach and guide the jews back to the path to civilisation, and not to be slaves to dogmatism and false directions., although later, extended to even non-jews as they had faith and believed in his teachings.

He could have came in style - mansion and splendour, but he chosed not to. He worked as a carpenter for a living, not as a scholar, despite his vast intellect, so as to be able to relate to the common jews.

His disciples and recorder of his words were not scholars, for he knew scholars had set minds, and will never change their pre-conceived notions. He chosed simple comman men - fishermen, farmers, tradesmen, etc - men with open minds, more readily to write down what was perceived and said.

When he left our world in mortal form, he left no leader, nor heir, intentionally. He wanted mankind to humbly share, discuss and debate issues to find solutions to progress and evolve, in a world that had grown in many ways. The world had suffered from the tyranny of monarchs, but was far too uneducated to comprehend democracy - the rule by the elected, and its responsibilities, to leave none behind, strong or weak.

By the 17th Century, mankind was ready, and thus was that era known as the age of enlightenment, which saw new forms of governance that lasted till today, fully capable of evolving and changing every 4 years without destroying every institution no matter how unworthy the elected were.

Today, we saw many of our fellow human brothers and sisters of other 'religions' around the world ( which in truth is only a guide to civilisationship status), being on to that path. Not perfect, but then, none is, fortunately, with the fullest capability to correct errors and change.

Thus focus not on the past legacy, on what could have been, but rather, what we could be today for tomorrow.

That legacy had been a milestone, and with hindsight, could be said with all honesty that it had lead to our progress and evolution, by allowing more to comprehend those civilisational teachings, espacially in this modern age. Although errors had been made during all those times, we are all flawed anyway, but mankind had never failed to pause, to think, to correct them to progress to today.

Humbly yours. Cheers.

I have read "The Hiram Key," and have to agree with you. In my own research I often turned away at finding out things about religious origins and the deeds of the Biblical Gods.

Here's a starter for you...When was Christ ACTUALLY born? The current date is/was the time of the premier Pagan celebration. The only thing scholars can agree on about the actual birthdate of Christ was that it WASN'T December 25.

The Dec.25 date came from Mithraism. The Roman God was Mithra, or Mithras, he was born on Dec. 25, of a virgin, had 12 men, performed miracles.....Constantine and crew must have found it easy to attach the attributes of their God to the new Godman they were inventing for the local Christian cults of the time.

"Both Mithras and Christ were described variously as 'the Way,' 'the Truth,' 'the Light,' 'the Life,' 'the Word,' 'the Son of God,' 'the Good Shepherd.' The Christian litany to Jesus could easily be an allegorical litany to the sun-god. Mithras is often represented as carrying a lamb on his shoulders, just as Jesus is. Midnight services were found in both religions. The virgin mother...was easily merged with the virgin mother Mary. Petra, the sacred rock of Mithraism, became Peter, the foundation of the Christian Church."

Gerald Berry, Religions of the World

Mithra: The Pagan Christ

RESEMBLANCES BETWEEN MITHRAISM AND CHRISTIANITY

To me, Christianity is just Mithraism packaged under a new name with a new leader. Still a cult of followers who have faith it is all real.
