Christianity is a baseless religion that was designed by the Roman empire to justify slavery and pacify the citizens, according to controversial Biblical scholar Joseph Atwill.
I usually get in trouble when I am speaking without a filter, so I will say this as charitably as I can. There is not on this earth anywhere a dumber group of people than those select individuals that call themselves ‘bible scholars’. Whenever one of those special people open their mouths, it is a near guarantee that what is about to come out of that mouth is the rank heresy of the educated atheist. With that, let’s say hello to bible scholar Joseph Atwill, he was written an entire book called ‘Caesar’s Messiah’ that “exposes the greatest secret in world history’ that Jesus of Nazareth was a ‘creation of the Roman government’ designed to keep the Jews pacified and paying taxes. 🤔
“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” 2 Peter 3:3-7 (KJV)
The very premise of ‘Caesar’s Messiah’ is so categorically stupid that I almost didn’t want to take the time to write an article refuting it. You don’t argue with people who claim that gravity doesn’t exist, or people who think the earth is flat, why would you want to waste your precious time doing that? But this ‘scholar’ taking a swipe at my Saviour cannot go unanswered, I value far too much the precious Blood that was shed to buy my pardon to not step in and say something.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:6,7 (KJV)
So let’s answer a fool according to his folly, shall we? For starters, Atwill conveniently neglects nearly a thousand years of Old Testament prophecies regarding the then-coming Messiah with over 300 prophecies that were fulfilled with 100% accuracy with the birth and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. The vast bulk of that prophecy was written hundreds of years before Rome ever even existed as a world power. Second, there is the personal and first-hand testimony of hundreds of witnesses regarding Jesus and the miracles He performed. Third, if Jesus was simply a “roman creation” would the Roman government then made themselves look so foolish as to allow Him to rise from the dead on the third day? I mean, how hard is it to keep a mythical corpse in a tomb? Yet, Rome had some massive egg on their faces on that first Resurrection Morning.
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:6-8 (KJV)
Would the apostles have given their lives for a hoax…would YOU die for something you knew wasn’t true? And even if you would, could you convince dozens of other disciples and apostles to kill themselves for a hoax they knew was a hoax with you? I mean, come on. The only thing that Rome is guilty of inventing is the counterfeit of biblical Christianity known as the Roman Catholic Church. That they did create, and that is certainly a hoax when compared to the Bible.
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11 (KJV)
Jesus of Nazareth is most certainly not a hoax, for if He was, the Romans wouldn’t have crucified Him on the cross between two malefactors. Bible scholars like Joseph Atwill are the same bunch that has been trying to steal not only your faith but also your Bible with their endless procession of “new and improved” bible perversions that do nothing but attack the deity, power and authority of Jesus Christ. They constantly drag you to the “hebrew and greek’ to inform you that “a better translation says” blah, blah, blah.
“Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?” Ecclesiastes 8:4 (KJV)
So I will say a hearty “no thanks!” to mountains of books produced by the bible scholars, and I will stick with my King James Holy Bible, written at a 6th grade comprehension level and in plain English so that even a non-scholar like me can get a hold of it. Jesus loves me. this I know, for the BIBLE from Genesis to Revelation tells me so. What a thing, man, what a thing!
Story of Jesus Christ was a HOAX designed to control the people, Biblical scholar claims
FROM THE EXPRESS UK: In a blog on his website Mr Atwill wrote: “Christianity may be considered a religion, but it was actually developed and used as a system of mind control to produce slaves that believed God decreed their slavery.” The scholar argues that at the time, Jewish sects in Palestine were awaiting a ‘warrior Messiah’, which became an increasing problem after the Roman Empire failed to deal with the problem with traditional means.
As Atwill presents in Caesar’s Messiah, the Flavian Roman imperial family created Christianity to pacify the militaristic opposition to their rule. Even more incredibly, they placed a literary satire within the Gospels to mark their handiwork. This symbolic framework is the hidden history of Western civilization. In his follow-up book, Shakespeare’s Secret Messiah, Atwill shows how this typology was understood and employed by Marlowe and Shakespeare, and what it means for the future of the Christian world. source
As a result, the rulers resorted to psychological warfare which would appear to give the citizens what they wanted, while at the same time making sure they followed their rules.
Mr Atwill added: “They surmised that the way to stop the spread of zealous Jewish missionary activity was to create a competing belief system. That’s when the ‘peaceful’ Messiah story was invented.
“Instead of inspiring warfare, this Messiah urged turn-the-other-cheek pacifism and encouraged Jews to ‘give onto Caesar’ and pay their taxes to Rome.
“Although Christianity can be a comfort to some, it can also be very damaging and repressive, an insidious form of mind control that has led to blind acceptance of serfdom, poverty, and war throughout history.”
Mr Atwill even goes so far to say that “to this day, especially in the United States, it is used to create support for war in the Middle East”. He says he first discovered this revelation when noticing Jesus is “the only fictional character in literature whose entire life story can be traced to other sources”.
By comparing the New Testament to the ‘War of the Jews’ by Josephus – the sole surviving account of first century Judea – he found the parallels between the two are uncanny.
Mr Atwill: ”What seems to have eluded many scholars is that the sequence of events and locations of Jesus ministry are more or less the same as the sequence of events and locations of the military campaign of Emperor Titus Flavius as described by Josephus.
“This is clear evidence of a deliberately constructed pattern. The biography of Jesus is actually constructed, tip to stern, on prior stories, but especially on the biography of a Roman Caesar.” READ MORE
