The Christian Myth is Just another one of many myths. From virgin birth to resurrection, the story of Jesus Christ is merely a retelling of the stories of gods who predated him by hundreds of years.
There is irrefutable, concrete evidence that the character of Jesus in the bible and the bible itself is taken from the myth of many pagan gods as well as the gods and mythology of Egypt and the Mediterranean. If you research gods like Mithra, Krishna, and just the idea of the “sun God/ son of God” you will be fascinated by how much was copied. They all share the same exact story of the savior, messiah, etc which was turned into the bible Jesus. However, these stories were written thousands of years before the bible. Mediterranean cultures in the ancient world shared standard ideas about gods and their powers and place in the universe and Christianity and the bible simply adopted those ideas and applied them to Jesus as is seen in the bible.
Heaven, hell, prophecy, demon possession, sacrifice, initiation by baptism, communion with God through a holy meal, the Holy Spirit, monotheism, immortality of the soul, and many other ideas of the bible all belonged to earlier, older Pagan faiths. They were simply part of ancient Mediterranean culture. Along with miracle working sons of god, born of a mortal woman, they were common elements of pre-Christian Pagan religion. Research Mithras, Dionysus, Attis, Osiris, Krishna, Orpheus.
Mithra who came before Jesus is described as ‘the Way,’ ‘the Truth,’ ‘the Light,’ ‘the Life,’ ‘the Word,’ ‘the Son of God,’ ‘the Good Shepherd.’ The idea of Jesus was taken from this. The Bible is not the inerrant word of God but a compilation of writings by men at this time. Mithras is often represented as carrying a lamb on his shoulders, just as Jesus is. 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.
Jesus NEVER existed. He was just another mythical character.
Historians and Archeologists have found no mention of a “Jesus Christ” in the 126 historical texts written in the first to third centuries.
There is little evidence for a person known as Jesus existing in history. Jesus is thought to have lived from about 7BC to 33AD in the Roman Empire. However, there is little to no mention of the supposed messiah in the 126 texts written in the first to third centuries. Only one mention of Jesus was present in a book by Roman historian Josephus Flavius but this was added by later editors.
The Christian myth is just another one of many myths. So what makes it so special? Nothing, nothing at all! Billions of people through the history of mankind have thought that their religion was the correct one. Greek mythology, the religion of its day, is now ridiculed and laughed at for its ridiculous claims made because of ignorance. We are now living in the time of Christian mythology and enjoying all if its ridiculous and very ignorant claims.
There is nothing Holy about the Holy Bible.
If Christians read the Bible in its entirety and didn’t just cherry pick verses they would see for themselves how horrific, immoral and flawed this book really is. If Christians also read the many other holy books written hundreds of years before the bible they would realize just how plagiarized this book is.
Here are some Bible passages you won’t hear about in church:
“Happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us – he who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.” (Psalm 137:9)
“So the man took his concubine and sent her outside to them, and they raped her and abused her throughout the night, and at dawn they let her go. At daybreak the woman went back to the house where her master was staying, fell down at the door and lay there until daylight. When her master got up in the morning and opened the door of the house and stepped out to continue on his way, there lay his concubine, fallen in the doorway of the house, with her hands on the threshold. He said to her, ‘Get up; let’s go.’ But there was no answer. Then the man put her on his donkey and set out for home.” (Judges 19:25-28)
“And Jephthah made a vow to the Lord, and said, ‘If you will give the Ammonites into my hand, then whoever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return victorious from the Ammonites, shall be the Lord’s, to be offered up by me as a burnt-offering.’ Then Jephthah came to his home at Mizpah; and there was his daughter coming out to meet him with timbrels and with dancing. She was his only child; he had no son or daughter except her. When he saw her, he tore his clothes, and said, ‘Alas, my daughter! You have brought me very low; you have become the cause of great trouble to me. For I have opened my mouth to the Lord, and I cannot take back my vow.’” (Judges 11:30-1, 34-5)
“Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt-offering on one of the mountains that I shall show you.” (Genesis 22:2)
“Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.” (Ephesians 5:22)
“Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the cruel.” (1 Peter 2:18)
“No one whose testicles are crushed or whose male organ is cut off shall enter the assembly of the Lord.” (Deuteronomy 23:1 ESV)
“If two men, a man and his countryman, are struggling together, and the wife of one comes near to deliver her husband from the hand of the one who is striking him, and puts out her hand and seizes his genitals, then you shall cut off her hand; you shall not show pity.” (Deuteronomy 25:11-12 NASB)
“Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel.” (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)
“If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.” (Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT)
“The ark of God was placed on a new cart and taken away from the house of Abinadab on the hill. Uzzah and Ahio, sons of Abinadab guided the cart, with Ahio walking before it, while David and all the Israelites made merry before the Lord with all their strength, with singing and with citharas, harps, tambourines, sistrums, and cymbals. When they came to the threshing floor of Nodan, Uzzah reached out his hand to the ark of God to steady it, for the oxen were making it tip. But the Lord was angry with Uzzah; God struck him on that spot, and he died there before God.” (2 Samuel 6:3-7 NAB)
“Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants.” (Isaiah 14:21 NAB)
“Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword. Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes. For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off. The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows. They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children.” (Isaiah 13:15-18 NLT)
“However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way.” (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)
“When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.” (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)
“Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ.” (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)
“Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them.” (1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT)
Here are some Bible passages about God’s love:
God orders the killing of innocent people even after the Ten Commandments said Thou shall not kill. For example, God kills 70,000 innocent people because David ordered a census of the people (1 Chronicles 21).
God also orders the destruction of 60 cities so that the Israelites can live there. He orders the killing of all the men, women, and children of each city, and the looting of all of value (Deuteronomy 3). He orders another attack and the killing of all the living creatures of the city: men and women, young, and old, as well as oxen sheep, and asses (Joshua 6). In Judges 21, He orders the murder of all the people of Jabesh-gilead, except for the virgin girls who were taken to be forcibly raped and married. When they wanted more virgins, God told them to hide alongside the road and when they saw a girl they liked, kidnap her and forcibly rape her and make her your wife!
In 2 Kings 10:18-27, God orders the murder of all the worshipers of a different god in their very own church!
Without God there would be no morality. Here are some passages about God’s morality:
The God of the Bible promotes and encourages slavery, including selling your own daughter as a sex slave (Exodus 21:1-11), child abuse (Judges 11:29-40 & Isaiah 13:16), and bashing babies against rocks (Hosea 13:16 & Psalms 137:9).
In this so-called holy book murder, rape, pillage, plunder, slavery, and child abuse are all justified in the name of God. Every other page in the Old Testament has God killing somebody! In total God kills 371,186 people directly and orders another 1,862,265 people murdered.
If you are thinking that the evil and immoral laws of the Old Testament are no longer in effect, the Bible clearly states that Old Testament laws will always be in effect:
