How many here proclaim that they are Christians and have an intimate relationship with their savior? One of the simplest and most deceiving
conspiracies (if you already did not know, but some do) I am going to reveal to you. The New Testament chronicles in great detail Christ's life and
subsequent crucifixion. The 4 gospels give accounts (although some do not match up and agree as for some minor and some moderate details) of Christ's
death and his tied together symbology with the cross as the tool used by the Romans to crucify him. The truth is, Jesus did not die on the cross. The
Greek word "stauros" was mistranslated by scholars through the ages to mean "cross" but this is actually incorrect.
The Roman stauros was a pale stake that was shaped as a T. The was no upright beam that was positioned behind the head. What most out there will learn
is that the cross is not a true Christian symbol at all. The cross being used in a religious context was used in many other religions but are not
associated correctly with Christ at all.
The cross was not widely used in mainstream Christianity until the time of the Roman emperor Constantine—about 300 years after Christ
established His Church. According to the book Babylon Mystery Religion, the cross originated among the ancient Babylonians of Chaldea. From there, it
spread to ancient China, India, Mexico, parts of Africa and other places, centuries before Christianity was born.
According to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, the shape of the cross “had its origin in ancient Chaldea, and was
used as the symbol of the god Tammuz (being in the shape of the mystic Tau, the initial of his name) in that country and in adjacent lands, including
Egypt. “By the middle of the third century A.D. the churches had either departed from, or had travestied, certain doctrines of the Christian faith.
In order to increase the prestige of the apostate ecclesiastical system, pagans were received into the churches…and were permitted largely to retain
their pagan signs and symbols. Hence, the Tau or T, in its most frequent form, with the cross-piece lowered, was adopted to stand for the cross of
In other words, the symbolism of the cross does not originate from Christianity, but PAGANISM.
It's amazing how many devoted followers are not aware of this discrepancy. The old testament and even the book of Revelation warns of blending the
works of God with paganism. Are you a devoted follower of Jesus? If so, are you aware of this use of pagan symbolism in regard to your personal lord
Forgive me if this has been posted in the past, the topic of Jesus in any conspiratorial regard has been posted many times here on ATS - too many for
me to dig through in my limited time frame.
