THE DARK SIDE OF CHRISTIANITY By Bashir Habeeb Adeshola. Part 1.
I write spasmodically to unravel some facts concerning the origin of Christianity and the divinity of Jesus (A.S.). It’s no more a news that those who claimed to be the followers of Christ credit the belief that Jesus is God incarnate, therefore he is God come in human flesh. This belief is unmitigated paganism from Roman practices foisted upon Prophet Isah (Jesus “A.S”). And more over, they formed a warp and woof belief that Jesus came to die for the sins of mankind, thus this made him the saviour of humanity according to Christians. This saying is scripturally legless. There is no a single verse from the complete Bible where Jesus said “I am your Lord and personal saviour or I came to die for your sins”. We read in the Gospel according to St John, chapter 17 where Jesus said he had completed the work God gave him to do. And this call for the question. Which work did he complete when he was still alive? This proves the mission of Jesus Christ on earth is something he had completed before the supposed crucifixion and resurrection took place and if truly Jesus said the words in John 17:3 then his mission is not to die for the sins of humanity… We read
I glorified you on earth by finishing the work that you gave me to do.
John 17:4 NRSV Bible
We read in the Gospel according to the Nazorenes where a man asked Jesus if blood offering could take away sins. We read…
Jesus was teaching his disciples in the outer court of the Temple and one of them said unto him: Master, it is said by the priests that without shedding of blood there is no remission. Can then the blood offering of the law take away sin?
And Jesus answered: No blood offering, of beast or bird, or man, can take away sin, for how can the conscience be purged from sin by the shedding of innocent blood? Nay, it will increase the condemnation. (Gospel of the Nazorenes, Lection 33, verses 1-2)
Christianity is based on the Mystery Religions of the ancient world. The doctrines of the ‘trinity’ and ‘incarnation’ were borrowed from the pagans. In fact, the whole religion was fabricated after the departure of Jesus. And that is why, the well known historian by the name Will Durant summarizes early Christianity thus: in Christ and Peter, Christianity was Jewish: in Catholicism it became half Roman. This article will prove just that.
The legendary stories of ‘man-god’ saviors dying for the sins of their people (and rising three days later) were very common! Christianity plagiarized the stories and foisted them upon Jesus (pbuh). The scholar Tom Harper writes:
“The divine teacher is called, is tested by the “adversary”, gathers disciples, heals the sick, preaches the Good News about God’s kingdom, finally runs a foul of his bitter enemies, suffers, dies, and is resurrected after three days. This is the total pattern of the sun god in all the ancient dramas”. (The Pagan Christ, p. 145)
A very important part of the pagan faiths was the belief in a god who was young and handsome and was supposed to have died or mutilated himself for the sake of mankind.(A.D. Ajijola , The Myth of the Cross)
The dogma of the Incarnation was taken into Christianity, like many other Christian doctrines, from paganism. In pre-Christian mythologies we often read of the hero being regarded as a God. The Hindus of India even today worship their ancient heroes, Rama and Krishna, as incarnations of Vishnu, the second person of the Hindu Trinity.
It is crystal clear that Jesus Christ was a first-century Jewish preacher, who preached the Gospel of God’s kingdom and lived according to mosaic laws. We read in the Gospel according to St Mathew, chapter 23
Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat:
All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
Matthew 23:1-3 KJV Bible
Jesus believed God to be one as found in the Gospel according to St Mark (Mark 12:28-29) which is in tandem with the belief of the Jews, the Jews sternly believe God to be one as found in Talmud and Tanakh. One of the primary expressions of Jewish faith, recited twice daily in prayer, is the Shema, which begins “Hear, Israel: the LORD is our God, the LORD is one”. This simple statement encompasses several different ideas:
There is only one God. No other being participated in the work of creation. God is a unity. He is a single, whole, complete indivisible entity. He cannot be divided into parts. Any attempt to describe God in man’s opinion is merely imperfect attempt to understand the infinite.God is the only being to whom we should offer praise. The Shema can also be translated as “the LORD is our God, the LORD alone”, meaning that no other is our God, and we should not pray to any other. We read
I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
Isaiah:45:5 KJV Bible
And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God.
Ezekiel:20:20 KJV Bible
Unto thee it was showed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.
Deuteronomy:4:35 KJV Bible
See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
Deuteronomy:32:39 KJV Bible
Since Jesus never preached TRINITY, then where is TRINITY from?
The Athanasian, or Trinitarian creed was probably written sometime in the fifth century. It bears the name of Athanasius, but it was not written by him.
