Christianity Is An Assumed Faith

Christianity is an assumed faith!This article is written with Christians in mind,so if you are  Jewish,you can pretty much disregard what I wrote below.Just be aware that all information that Jews have about Christianity comes from Christian sources,which is just 'assumed' to be correct -it isn't!

Hard to believe?

Examine the evidence.

The first point below is assumed by Christians AND Jews that:

  • Christianity was founded in the 1st century CE by J-e-s-u-s C-h-r-i-s-t. -it wasn't.
  • Christians assume that the Greek manuscripts all agree and there are only minor errors. -not true.
  • Christians assume that the NT agrees with the OT.-not true.
 *Jews don't refer to their Bible as  the "OT(a "Displacement Theology"term-invented by Marcion.)",they call it,the Tana''ch.
    Firstly, there is no historical connection between the post 135 C.E, 4th century Hellenist/Roman counterfeit man g_d image J-e-s-u-s and the 1st century P'rushi(Pharisee) pro Torah rabbi 'Ribi' Yehoshua(Aramaic: Yeshua).

    Secondly,Eusebius,the earliest extant church historian,wrote that Christianity began in 135 C.E,not before.

    Thirdly,since the earliest Greek NT mss(manuscript) is dated 200-299 C.E.,then the obvious answer is(since ONLY Judaism existed in the 1st century)that the NT manuscripts came from "Roman Syncretisms" and/or 'corrupted stories passed down by Hellenized Jews."

    There are several  ways one can prove this.....

    One being that Religious Jews and Hellenized Jews speaking of deity were not speaking the same words.The former's words came straight from Sinai,the latter's words straight from Greek mythology and the pagan temples.The other way is by comparing the Hebrew/Aramaic and Greek terms for the  same things.They don't mean the same!What's more,a search of Torah and Tanakh -in Hebrew,shows the above and in addition also exposes the false doctrines in the NT.

    Fourthly,Eusebius testified of the original Netzarim that:

    • they lived in the Jewish quarter alongside the Pharisees(the ancestors of the today's Orthodox Jews),amicably and Jews were forbidden according to Hallachah to have contact with non-Jews.
    • They only accepted the Tanakh,their own Hebrew Matitiyahu,rejected the heavily redacted Greek NT,considered Saul(Paul)an apostate and rejected his writings.
    • In 333,Constantine finally succeeded in completely eradicating them for refusing to compromize Torah,go to church on Sun-g-d-day("Constantine instituted rest on the venerable day of the sun("dies solis invicita")in 313 C.E. and anybody caught "judaizing" was punished.) and eat Pork on the way out.
      The Conflict of the Church and the Synagogue (chapters 1-5) by James Parkes(the late Oxford Historian).

      This excellent book is out of print,but may be found used somewhere online(I found a copy on Ebay),or in a bookstore somewhere.

      Take a typical Christian statement:

      "J-e-s-u-s died for our sins"

      1. Original Sin -There is no doctrine of Original Sin in Judaism.Kippur(Atonement) is already in Torah,so if you sin,you make Teshuvah(return,repent)and do better.The Doctrine of Orginal Sin comes from the Roman Church and was developed by Athanasius.
      2. Vicarious Atonment - 4th century Roman Church(look it up.I did) -again,atonement is already in Torah and earch man is responsible for his own sins.
      3. Savior -This goes against the Torah requirements for Mashiakh,namely he must keep Torah(or be disqualified according to Devarim 13:1-6).Mashiakh must also be a man and agent of Hashem,not some "man-g_d",or "demi-g-d."
      Other phrases like:

      "Man couldn't keep G-d's commandments,so G_d had to send His son",etc....is completely against Torah and Tanakh,and betrays its Hellenist/Roman pagan origin.Besides,look at the results of preaching this nonsense.You have people who claim to be Christians,living any old how expecting they're going to be in Heaven.

      "The Law is done away with" is not even in the NT(I'm not validating it,merely making a point.),but comes from Constantine/Papal Rome and fits perfectly with The Vatican's agenda,then and now towards the Jews.

      On another note:

      During WW2,"The Vatican Underground" as it was called,helped many Nazis escape to South America,Mexico and other places.The Vatican,according to one writer,also saved some Jews,so that in the event the Nazis lost,the Vatican could claim,they did what they could to save some Jews,and yet -they/the Jesuits were behind WW2(and all others!)anyway.

      btw: the word "law" is an accurate translation of the Greek word  νόμος ("nomos"),if you're referring to "the unalterable Athenian law" but it is NOT an accurate translation of the Hebrew word תורה ("Torah"),which should be either "Instruction",or "teaching."


        Jewish Tradition vs Christian Tradition

        When I say that word,I can hear Tevye from "Fiddler On The Roof" singing and shouting the word TRADITION,because everything was changing,ie: his daughter Tzeitel didn't want to marry Lazer Wolf the Butcher(really....can you blame her?She was only 20 and he was 75!!!),she wanted to marry Motel the tailor,her childhood sweetheart,but that wasn't how things were done,because marriages were supposed to be 'arranged" ,usually by the village matchmaker,the old Yenta- for a fee,of course!

        Anyway,there are good traditions and there are bad traditions.

        This is about a bad one.

        Just like Christianity is an assumed faith,Judaism has assumed some 'historical' and 'linguistic' traditions that are just plain not true,yet when one tries to point out the unadulterated facts(see below),there are Jews who willfully refuse to acknowledge these facts -all in the name of protecting Judaism from Christianty....by holding onto falsehoods?

        Are the Rabbis of Judaism today's "false Shepherds" spoken of by Yehezchel the Navi(prophet)(hellenized to "Ezekiel")?

        I think so!

        btw: all Jewish information(yes,including that on the Encyclopedia Judaica website) about Christianity comes from either Christian sources and/or contact with Christian missionaries(btw: "messianic" Jews are also Christians!)which is ALL assumed(to be true) and therefore invalid.

        In "Who Are The Netzarim " by Paqid Yirmeyahu Ben-David a few  of the "Netzarim Challenges" are:

        "Document,where these religious and Torah-observant Jews in the pre-135 CE Jewish community-as Dead Sea Scroll 4Q MMT describes the 1st century Jewish community-suddenly,and with no transition,or record of the event,abandoned their beit k'nesset and Torah teachings?"

        "Document where and when such strict Torâh-observant religious Jews turned 180° against their native religion overnight, with no record of any transition at all, to follow Hellenist Roman paganism? This requires a magical "Poof!" to explain – one night they all went to bed as Torâh-observant Jews and, "Poof!" they awoke the next morning as a gentile, pagan, misojudaic Church completely dependent upon Displacement Theology! "
        Here are the facts:

        "Jewish Tradition" has confused many Jews,namely in the following areas:

        1. נְצָרִים (Netzarim [Jews])נזיר(Nazir-Nazerite Vow) and נָצְרִים (Notzrim,Natzrim-Christians)come from 3 completely different roots,yet many blur 2 of them and some even all three,and worse,refuse to accept correction!Many are ignorant of the historical facts.ie: one church official stating "the Nazarenes" were keeping some of the church's 'beliefs"(while keeping some of their Jewish beliefs) is obviously NOT the נְצָרִים since Eusebius documented that they were eradicated by 333 CE for refusing to compromise Torah.Sounds like a twist on the early church's belief of "everybody's a heretic-except them",only in this case from a Jewish point of view: 'they're all Xtns!"
        The historical and linguistic facts disagree with Jewish Tradition.

        3)Another common misconception is that Xty started in ie: 20 CE by "J-e-s-u-s" and that believing in ANY 1st century messiah is XTY!

        Even the Talmud disagrees with that erroneous statement!

        4)J-e-s-u-s.... and רבי יהושע(Ribi[ONLY P'rushi/Pharisee Rabbis held that title!]Yehoshua) are the same person.

        Logically,not possible,since the two were/are vastly different in character.The first was an invention of the Hellenist/Roman post 135 C.E. church and is supposed to have 'done away with the law(that doctrine is not even in the heavily redacted NT-quite the opposite,in fact)" and the second,a 1st century Pro-Torah Pharisee rabbi(a man,no less) named "Yehoshua."

        From Christianity To Netzarim Judaism

        I was born in Maidstone,Kent,England in 1958 and experienced religion at an early age attending The Church of England,saying "The L_rd's Prayer" and singing Hymns at Primary School.

        I started taking French in school at age 7.This would turn to be significant later on.

        When I look back on it all now,I realize that like Avraham in Ur of the Chaldees,amongst all those idols,the one true Hashem(Devarim 4:6),the Perfect Singularity/Creator was calling out to him and He was also calling out to me and awakening in me a desire to know more of Him and leave the idols behind.Little,then did I realize what those idols were and are and even now,I'm only just beginning to thanks to Hebrew,Torah and the Netzarim!

        In April of 1966,my family emigrated to Canada,eventually 2 years later settling in Peterborough,Ontario,where I grew up and where I continued my spiritual search,mostly via ocassional and seasonal Church attendance.

        In Canada,in some areas our two official languages are spoken side by side.This was another positive influence for later on.Plus,TV and Radio have both present.

        One thing I wondered about was the fact that I had some fellow Jewish students at Elementary school and when we had religious studies,they were always exempt.This made me curious.I asked one of them about it and he explained that they weren't teaching the Tanakh the same way he was taught!They were twisting it,he told me. I took note of that,but having a zeal,but no knowledge,didn't quite know what to think,so I shelved it!

        One thing that happened during high school was in taking French my teacher instilled in me a gift for languages(Iwanted to drop it,but she begged me not to,telling me that "You know you like languages and have a gift for them") which would come in handy later on.I would develop an ear and a knack for picking up languages years later.

        In the Spring of 1978,I returned to England to live,getting involved in various Pentecostal groups,eventually,after it all made sense,finally giving up my life and becoming "born again."

        In the fall of 1981,back in Canada,I made a vow that I would never be a victim of somebody's Bible translations,because I would study the original languages for myself.

        After seeing an ad in a Toronto newspaper,where I was living at the time,I took a course in modern Hebrew,visited a "Messianic" Jewish Assembly,a Conservative Synagogue and talked to the many Jews I would encounter around the city.I bought a Hebrew Bible and I even read part of the Talmud once.I also bought myself some cassettes and began teaching myself modern Greek.There were questions I had to have answers to and I knew I was not going to find them in any translation.

        I was becoming aware of a number of conflicts,but couldn't sort them out at that time,not having the information I needed.For example,I observed that "Messianic" Judaism,as refreshing as it was,compared to the churches,was just a Christianity with Jewish clothing!

        I realized that to understand the true 1st century message,the events and names must be restored to their first century linguistic,cultural and religious context.

        In translating any language,it is said that at one end of the scale you have "literal translation(word for word)",at the other end is "figurative(loose translation)" and then there's the middle.The hard part is getting the thought form across.Often what happens in going from one lanaguage to another, only the words get translated and even then,they get twisted!I was becoming increasingly aware that Ribi Yehoshua's(Aramaic "Yeshua" NOT the post 135 C.E. 4th century Hellenist/Roman counterfeit man g_d image "J-e-s-u-s" invented by the Roman church!) original message had been changed and twisted thanks to the Greek.

        I remember watching a cartoon about Channukah once,where the candles were lit with Hebrew letters,but when the letters were changed to Greek,the lights went out,until the Greek letters were replaced with Hebrew ones again.This of course,was the Macabee story,but even so,it's common knowledge that Ribi Yehoshua and his Talmidim spoke Western Aramaic,NOT Greek.For Jews,their language whether Hebrew,Aramaic,Ladino,Yiddish,etc has preserved their identity and kept them together,but that's another story indeed!

        I began attending a Greek Evangelical church and looking into the Greek,as well as keeping my interest in Biblical Hebrew.I became aware though that despite the fact that Greek is more precise than English,it was not the language,or culture that the events of Ribi Yehoshua's day were conducted in.

        One conflict I had was:

        Why do Jews(and Seventh Day Adventists)worship on Shabbat("The Bible Sabbath"),but others on Sun-g_d-Day.People would tell me: "It doesn't matter...""The Torah is done away with..." I wondered:How can Hashem's law be changed....How did it get changed and how did this doctrine come about and if not from scripture where from?

        The answer I found out years later: "All roads lead to (Papal)Rome."Also,Constantine and the Popes.

        Many years later,I found out that Ribi Yehoshua and his Talmidim all kept Shabbat and their days were as Hashem had commanded: "...Sunset to Sunset..."...but man,namely Constantine and the Papal powers had changed Hashem's laws,namely Shabbat to Sun-g_d-day and Pope Gregory instituted the Julian Calendar,using the Babylonian/Roman reckoning of time with days beginning at midnight,again perverting Hashem's commands(Daniel 7:25).

        I spent 15 years with The Seventh Day Adventist Church;5 years watching and 10 years in it and comparing scripture with scripture,but discovered that while they had the truth of the Sabbath and the "the law",they didn't know the difference between a "righteous" person and a "sinner("we're all sinners....")" and they held to "Replacement Theology("the church has replaced Israel as the people of Hashem.")

        I now realize looking back that the Ruach HaQodesh was witnessing to my heart that these were a few of the many false doctrines.I also discovered that all the symbols in Christianity came from Papal Rome and theirs from Pagan sources.Afterall,it is said that the seat of the Babylonian religion was moved to Rome in 376 C.E.

        I also became increasingly aware that most Christians are just blindly following whatever doctrines their church believes,keeping their roster of "scriptural proofs" yet never opening their bibles to check anything out.And they say "Hashem has blinded the Jews!?" They need to look in their own mirror!

        All the churches come from their mother(Papal Rome) and the so-called Protestant Reformation wasn't much of a reformation at all,because despite the fact that their motto was 'Sola Scritura(Scripture Only)",they never made a clean break from the Roman church and none of their doctrines were/are from scripture.Prostestantism is just watered down Roman-Catholicism,as I see it now.

        I knew I had to come out of all the churches and got loosely involved with the "Hebrew Roots Movement" which is made up of people searching out their Hebrew roots and are all in various stages of coming out of the churches.As they see the Bible truths via the Hebrew and Aramaic,the Greco/Roman Mindset starts to crack and fall away!Unfortunately,the other side of the coin,the Messianic Movement is still basically Christianity(they won't admit that,of course).I realized I had to avoid picking up any more unbiblical junk!

        I realized,again,that if I wanted to know the truth,I had to start from Torah and put all 1st century events back in their Orthodox Jewish and Aramaic/Hebraic context.When I did,all the false idolatrous teachings I'd learned were quickly shown as false in the light of the Torah.

        Then in late 2009,via a websearch for "Who are the Netzarim?" I came across 'www.Netzarim.co.il" and the final piece of the Jigsaw Puzzle appeared.

        It explained what I had kind of known all along,that I had been the victim of 2000 years of Eclessiastical lies and Greek polution of the first century Rabbi's pro-Torah,Jewish message.

        In studying: "Who Are The Netzarim?" "Atonement In The Biblical New Convenant and "The Netzarim Reconstruction Of Hebrew Matitiyahu" ,I can see clearly how Ribi Yehoshua's message got perverted by Daniel's fourth Beast (Daniel 2),the egg laying Dragon of Pagan,then Papal Rome.
