MY JOURNEY OUT OF CHRISTIANITY
For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a good person, and I’ve felt an inexplicable urge to reach out for something beyond what I can see — to reach out to God. Since I was raised in the United States, the authority figures around me pointed to the Christian Church, telling me that is where God could be found. A dutiful child, I did what I was told and looked for God there.
As time progressed, I found myself dissatisfied with the definitions of God that were proffered to me. The book I was given contained many beautiful ideas, and many of those ideas resonated with me, but there were also many other ideas that struck a sour note, and the entire spiritual narrative made little sense to me: eat an apple, be condemned forever; kill God’s son, all’s forgiven. Say what?!?
To give you an example of the sort of ideas that repelled me, let me share a few NIV Bible passages on the practice of slavery from Exodus 21. I remind you that this is the supposedly righteous “Creator of the Universe” speaking directly to Moses:
>>> 7 “If a man sells his daughter as a servant, she is not to go free as male servants do. 8 If she does not please the master who has selected her for himself, he must let her be redeemed. He has no right to sell her to foreigners, because he has broken faith with her.9 If he selects her for his son, he must grant her the rights of a daughter.10 If he marries another woman, he must not deprive the first one of her food, clothing and marital rights.11 If he does not provide her with these three things, she is to go free, without any payment of money.” <<<
…In this passage, Yahweh states that it’s okay for fathers to sell their daughters into permanent slavery, and he gives rules for what can and can’t be done with her afterwards. In the context of this passage, does being a good father entail getting a good price for your daughter on the slave market?
>>> 2 “If you buy a Hebrew servant, he is to serve you for six years. But in the seventh year, he shall go free, without paying anything. 3 If he comes alone, he is to go free alone; but if he has a wife when he comes, she is to go with him. 4 If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall belong to her master, and only the man shall go free.” <<<
…In this passage, Yahweh establishes a condition under which a married male slave who is freed must leave behind his wife and children because they are his master’s property. Is this what religious folk mean when they talk of “family values”?
>>> 26 “An owner who hits a male or female slave in the eye and destroys it must let the slave go free to compensate for the eye. 27 And an owner who knocks out the tooth of a male or female slave must let the slave go free to compensate for the tooth.” <<<
…This section is where Yahweh gets progressive and establishes the world’s first workers comp law. If you poke out the eye of your slave, you have to set him free?!? How revolutionary and enlightened!
And here is the most inspiring passage of all…
>>> 20 “Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result, 21 but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property.” <<<
…So if a slavemaster beats his slave, he’s to be punished only if the slave dies from the beating (and only if a rod was used)? Hmmm, it’s pretty sweet to be a slavemaster in Yahweh’s kingdom, isn’t it?
Even as a young child, when I read passages such as this, my heart and mind raged against them. Whether they condoned barbaric acts or presented scientifically false information, such verses stuck in my mind like splinters. In time, these vile ideas fermented to the point that I could no longer stomach them, and I had to spit them out.
Naturally, it took a while to get to that point, because the belief system I was taught told me that I would burn forever in a pit of fire if I didn’t hold my nose, swallow every bitter concept, and “just have faith.” This cage of fear kept me locked up for years. Eventually, though, I was able to make a prison break and start looking for God on my own.
As I searched for the truth of things, I looked into a variety of religions and found the same sort of problems. Every belief system I found was a mixed bag of inspired thought, myth, superstition, cultural bias, and flagrant falsehoods. And every “holy” book I found was written by men, compiled by men, translated by men, and interpreted by men (and those men had a variety of agendas, both pure and impure, driving what they did).
Over time, it became clear to me that there was no one out there who could hand me an understanding of God or myself. Such an understanding had to be a personal journey, and I had to earn it. Since each fragment of God’s consciousness begins its journey from a different place, each must chart its own unique path back home.
Looking back at my former religion, I used to see it as a well-meaning but misguided interpretation of our relationship to God. Now that I have been awakened to what’s really going on in this world, though, I see it in a more sinister light. In its roots, it began as a religion based on animal sacrifice. With this in mind, we must ask ourselves what sort of entity feeds off of the negative energy released when a living thing dies a traumatic death? Is it God or someone else who savors such a thing?
I will leave you to ponder this question until next time.
(P.S. – 7 September 2015)
Here is a Christian TV network campaigning to end slavery while at the same time proclaiming the Bible to be the complete and unerring “Word of God.” As I’ve just shown you, Yahweh’s own words in that book proclaim that slavery is perfectly acceptable, so what are they doing? Are they rebelling against their own god? I think I’ll put a yellow “x” on my hand signifying “Shine a Light on Inconsistency Day.”
BTW, the whole species is enslaved to varying degrees, not just 27 million.
THE GIFTS OF GOD AND THE DOCTRINES OF MEN
In all the annals of medical practice, you’ll not find a single recorded case of a baby being born with a Torah, Bible or Koran tethered around his neck. And why is that so? Because God does not give us those books, men do. This does not mean we are born without guidance from God, though, because every baby ever born in a properly formed body came with the gifts of intellect, intuition, emotion and common sense pre-installed. God gives all humans these gifts so we’ll be able to find our way through this world of deception and confusion. God’s gifts are our homing beacon to Truth. This being so…
I encourage you to set aside the doctrines of men and all of the mental and emotional programming they have instilled in you and start listening to the gifts God gave you.
If you are currently a Christian, you probably believe that people in all the other religions, such as Hinduism for example, are embracing false doctrines. So let me ask you this…
What if you had been born in India instead of here?
What would you believe if all the authority figures around you had brought you up with the Hindu writings and all the associated mental and emotional programming of that religion? Being a person who strives for a relationship with God, you probably would have accepted what they told you and embraced their “false doctrine,” is that not so? Now look at that Hindu you from your current Christian perspective – how would you find your way out of their “false doctrine” to embrace “salvation in Jesus Christ”? You would have to question everything they taught you and consider something new, wouldn’t you?
Well here I am standing beyond the maze of Christian thought telling you that you have embraced false doctrine. Do you care enough about the Truth – do you care enough about God – to find out if I might be right? If you are standing in Truth right now, you have nothing to fear by using God’s gifts to question it. It would only be affirmed by such questioning. But if you are standing in falsehood, wouldn’t you want to know? Do you care enough about your relationship with God to do the work and find out? Or will you hide in the Land of “Just Have Faith”?
Going back to the Hindu you we just discussed, would you be able find your way out of Hinduism if those around you told you to “just have faith” and you accepted that? Certainly not, right? “Just have faith” would be your spiritual prison for life. This being so, we must recognize that…
“JUST HAVE FAITH” IS THE MANTRA OF DEVILS
In telling you to “just have faith,” the manipulators are telling you to turn off God’s gifts and blindly accept the doctrines of men. Common sense, which is one of God’s gifts, would suggest instead that you turn off your blind acceptance and wholeheartedly embrace the gifts God gave you. Use your intellect. Use your intuition. Use your emotions. Use your common sense. And use them all together, ignoring none of them. The only way to find the Land of Truth is to apply your indomitable will to Truth in navigating the Sea of Lies using the compass God gave you. Cast off your fear and let’s get to sailin’.
(P.S. – 10 September 2015) – For those of you wondering why I’ve suddenly taken on the task of dismantling the Christian religion, it all has to do with the “End Times” Programming article I recently wrote. If the globalists really are batsh*t crazy enough to stage a Second Coming to install a One World Dictator, it is imperative to destroy the Christ myth they will use to give him cover.
The difficult thing about fighting the globalist agenda is that they are great contingency planners. Whenever you move to block one of their plans, they always have fallback plans they can activate to keep moving forward. If you think about it, pursuing their agenda is much like taking a road trip from Point A in New York to Point B in Los Angeles: there are a million different ways to get from Point A to Point B, so if you try to block the road they’re traveling on, they can simply change roads and keep on truckin’. The one thing they can’t change, though, is their destination. So if you build a fence around Point B, they can’t reach their destination regardless of which route they take.
For the globalists, it appears that their “Point B” might be installing a theocratic world leader clothed in the myth of Christ. So if we can shred the myth of Christ before they can put forward their leader, we have denied them their destination. You can’t put a wolf in sheep’s clothing if the sheep costume has been shredded beyond repair. Everyone will see the wolf for what he is. And this is why I’ve taken on this new subject.
If any of the historical accounts are to be believed, Christianity was just another insignificant cult before the Occulted Powers of ancient Rome decided to use it as a universal religious control mechanism for their Empire. It was they who codified it, made it mainstream, and spread it around the world. And it is they who will attempt to bring the prophecies (along with their dreams of worldwide dominion) to fruition. But like any other big lie, the Christ myth is ever-teetering on the brink of implosion. To knock it down, you just have to know exactly how and where to hit it.
JESUS, AND THE LIES WE TELL OURSELVES TO KEEP GOING
In case you’re wondering, this is what “Jesus” really looks like (he’s the one on the left)…
One of my favorite television shows is called Cheaters. In it, people who think their sexual partners are cheating on them enlist the show to discover the truth, even though the aggrieved parties actually know the truth already. You’ll often hear them say that “something doesn’t feel right” in their relationship, which is their intuition warning them of the infidelity. And they often find evidence such as condom wrappers, telephone numbers, and text messages that their intellect knows is proof that something inappropriate is going on. Yet they still don’t want to face the truth, and they call in the show to give them the slap on the face they need to deal with reality.
So why do they do it – why do they make excuses for their cheating partners even though they know better? Is it because they don’t want to feel the pain of acknowledging that they were lied to? Is it because they don’t want to leave the comfort zone of being in the relationship? Is it because they’re afraid they won’t be able to find a new relationship? Whatever the reasons may be, they lie to themselves to keep going on the path they’re on, even though they know they need to take a new path.
As it is with the cheated-upon, it is with the religious. All those in the manmade religions have felt internal warnings and seen evidence that is contradictory to their faiths, yet they continue lying to themselves to keep going. It’s time for the lying to stop. So if you are still trapped in the Christian religion like I once was, I’m here to offer you the slap on the face you need to deal with reality. I ask you only to take a few minutes to…
mentally set aside the “holy” books and sermons men have given you
embrace the intellect, intuition, emotion and common sense God has given you.
I’m here to guide you back to God, not to take you away from “him.” And if you are honest with yourself, this won’t take long. Let’s get started…
No matter how impressive a building might look or how beautifully it’s decorated, if it sits on a defective foundation and its structural pillars are faulty, it must be condemned. So let’s take a moment to look at the foundation and core pillars of the Christian religion:
1) The foundation of the Christian religion is the Bible, and it contains two pillars: the Old Testament and the New Testament. The figure of “Jesus Christ” stands upon these pillars.
2) The Old Testament pillar tells us about “God the Father,” and its whole spiritual paradigm is based upon the writings of Moses. All its other books spring from what Moses tells us about God.
3) The New Testament pillar tells us about “Jesus Christ”; it lays out why he is the “Son of God” and the “Messiah.” The argument it makes for Jesus’ status is based upon his fulfillment of what is in the Old Testament, so the Old Testament pillar is the pedestal upon which the New Testament pillar stands.
These three things are the very core of Christianity, and fortunately for us, judging the soundness of this foundation and its two pillars doesn’t require a doctorate in theology. After all, one gets a doctorate by studying the writings and doctrines of men, not God. The only way to study God is to bounce those manmade ideas off your spiritual core and see how they feel. So let’s take a few passages from the Bible and ask ourselves what our inner guidance tells us. For the sake of simplicity, we’ll use the Bible verses we began this page with.
According to Moses, the following passages are what his god — who in the Bible is most commonly called “Yahweh” — directly told him. They come from Exodus 21, and as Exodus 20:1 says, “And God spoke all these words…”
1) “7 If a man sells his daughter as a servant, she is not to go free as male servants do. 8 If she does not please the master who has selected her for himself, he must let her be redeemed. He has no right to sell her to foreigners, because he has broken faith with her. 9 If he selects her for his son, he must grant her the rights of a daughter. 10 If he marries another woman, he must not deprive the first one of her food, clothing and marital rights. 11 If he does not provide her with these three things, she is to go free, without any payment of money.”
…In this passage, Yahweh states that it’s okay for fathers to sell their daughters into permanent slavery, and he gives rules for what can and can’t be done with her afterwards. Now take a moment to ask yourself a simple question, and take note of how you feel when answering it…
Did the real God really talk to Moses and tell him it’s okay for people to sell their daughters into bondage and give him instructions on how it should be done?
If you are unsure of what your core is telling you when you ask yourself this question, try answering it both ways, yes and no, and take a moment after each answer to feel which one makes your head protest and your heart feel constricted. The answer that elicits such negative responses from your spiritual core is the wrong answer.
2) “2 If you buy a Hebrew servant, he is to serve you for six years. But in the seventh year, he shall go free, without paying anything. 3 If he comes alone, he is to go free alone; but if he has a wife when he comes, she is to go with him. 4 If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall belong to her master, and only the man shall go free.”
…In this passage, Yahweh establishes a condition under which a married male slave who is freed must leave behind his wife and children because they are his master’s property. So now ask yourself…
Did the real God really talk to Moses and tell him it’s okay for a slavemaster to keep another man’s family as property?
After asking yourself the first question, the answer to this one should be quite obvious.
3) “26 An owner who hits a male or female slave in the eye and destroys it must let the slave go free to compensate for the eye. 27 And an owner who knocks out the tooth of a male or female slave must let the slave go free to compensate for the tooth.”
…In this passage, Yahweh condones the beating of slaves as long as it doesn’t get too rough and causes the loss of a body part. So the question is…
Did the real God really talk to Moses and tell him it’s okay to physically abuse slaves as long as body parts aren’t destroyed?
4) “20 Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result, 21 but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property.”
…In this passage, Yahweh says that it’s okay to use a rod to beat a slave to near death as long as the slave doesn’t die as a result. Therefore, the question…
Did the real God really talk to Moses and tell him it’s okay to beat a slave to near death?
As you answered these questions, you might have felt a conflict between your religious programming and your spiritual core. Your programming may have told you, “The answer is YES! The real God really told Moses these slave-owning rules because the Bible is true and unerring!” But your spiritual core was unmoved by your programming. It gave you clear feelings to guide you to the correct answer. That “still, small voice” within us always guides us in the right direction, but we often overrule it because it gets in the way of what we think we want. So if you were honest with yourself, the answer to all of these questions was…
No, the real God did not tell Moses any of these things.
And this means…
> Moses was told these things by some real or imagined being that is not the real God
> Moses wrote down the rules he thought were appropriate and falsely claimed that God dictated them.
Given the mundane and anal-retentive nature of the myriad rules Moses wrote, the latter seems the more likely scenario to me. But if you are unsure, say each of the two above statements to yourself and see which one feels right.
Now that we have allowed our God-given intuition and emotion to guide us to the correct answers, it’s time to employ our God-given intellect and common sense to draw some conclusions…
GIVEN THAT Moses was lying about God instructing him in proper slaving techniques,
IT STANDS TO REASON THAT Moses was lying about all his interactions with God.
GIVEN THAT Moses was lying about all his interactions with God,
IT STANDS TO REASON THAT the spiritual paradigm he presents in the first five books of the Bible is a fabrication.
GIVEN THAT the spiritual paradigm Moses presents in the first five books of the Bible is a fabrication,
IT STANDS TO REASON THAT the Old Testament pillar of Christianity is faulty, since all other Old Testament books are based on Moses’ original lies.
GIVEN THAT the Old Testament pillar of Christianity is faulty, and that it is the source of Jesus’ claimed legitimacy as the “Son of God” and the “Messiah,”
IT STANDS TO REASON THAT Jesus has no legitimacy as the “Son of God” or the “Messiah.”
So as you can see, the whole Biblical foundation of Christianity is defective. Moses’ original fictions begat Jewish fictions, which later begat Rome’s fictions. “Jesus Christ” is a lie based upon a lie based upon a lie. And what better cult was there for Rome to promote than one that condones human slavery and tells us to “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s?” The wolves who ruled the Roman Empire made sheep of men by giving them a god like this…
With all this laid before you, what will you do? Will you continue lying to yourself to keep going? Will you continue allowing the con artists in the clergy to run your spiritual life and enslave you under a fake second coming of Christ?
Will you continue to ignore the real God in favor of the manmade god of the Bible?
The choice, as always, is yours.
In case you need more convincing, though, my next entry on this subject will point out the primitive spiritual traditions that were cobbled together to manufacture the Christ myth. And if you want to see what I’ve discovered about the Real God, read Our Relationship with Source Consciousness: The Spiritual Basics. I’ll be writing an updated and more thorough version of it in the coming weeks, but it will get you started.
Although my writings can give you a snapshot of your spiritual destination, they cannot take you there. It is a path you must walk for yourself. You must satisfy yourself to the correct answers in your own head and heart, and you must have the personal aha moment when you realize your true relationship to God. That is the moment when everything within you starts to change.
THE SPIRITUAL ORIGINS OF THE CHRISTIAN BLOOD CULT
“There is power in the blood of Jesus.”
“My sins were washed clean by Christ’s blood.”
Christians never seem to realize the true meaning of the words they use or why they use them, and I used to be the same way, because I was Christian until I hit my twenties. Now that I’m older and more experienced, though, I’ve learned why such words are spoken, and now so will you.
If you look at the basic Christ concept without rose-colored glasses, this is how it goes…
The first humans did something that God told them to not do, so God condemned all humans to spiritual death. But God told Moses that his chosen people could escape spiritual death if they would kill innocent animals. Since death was required for breaking God’s rules, an animal’s death could be substituted for the human’s death; since the shedding of blood was required for remission of sin, the animal’s blood could be substituted for the human’s blood.
Hebrews 9:22 – And almost all things are by the law purged with blood;
and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Then, along came Jesus. God sent his own son down to Earth and humans murdered him. And because we murdered him, we were offered forgiveness for our sins. Why? Because Jesus became the ultimate human sacrifice for our sins. In the same way innocent animals took on the sins of the Jews, Jesus took on all the sins of the whole world. And when we murdered him, the sins were expiated. So the path to remission of sins is the cold-blooded murder of the innocent, and our murder of God’s own son was a very fortunate day for us.
When you take a moment to step back and think about this, it’s all very bizarre, isn’t it? Eat an apple, be condemned forever; murder God’s own son, all is forgiven. It’s absolutely nuts. So why did people accept such an odd belief? It was because the Christ myth was cobbled together from pre-existing spiritual traditions, so it made sense to people at the time.
These are the three ancient (and invalid) spiritual traditions that were cobbled together to make the Christ myth…
1) Scapegoating – an ancient practice whereby the evils or sins of a people were symbolically attached to an animal, then the animal was driven away or killed, thus carrying away the evil or expiating the sin.
2) Blood sacrifice – an insane practice in which a valuable animal or human (such as one’s own child) was killed to make amends for sin or to seek material gain or power. The sacrificed being’s blood was then considered to have the power to purify a person or place…
Exodus 29:20 – Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood,
and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron,
and upon the tip of the right ear of his sons,
and upon the thumb of their right hand,
and upon the great toe of their right foot,
and sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.
3) Eating flesh and drinking blood to consume the spirit and/or take on the qualities of an animal or person – this practice is still followed today by hunters who drink the blood or eat the heart of their kill to take on its spirit, and by Asian men who take rhino horn powder in the belief they’ll get an erection.
If we apply these three superstitions to Christianity, we see that Jesus took upon himself all the “sins” of humanity (thus becoming the scapegoat), and he was blood sacrificed on the cross to release those sins. Due to his sacrifice, his believers can wash away their sins by covering themselves in his blood, and they can become more like him by consuming his flesh and drinking his blood in ritual communion.
That’s Judeo-Christianity in a nutshell: shirked responsibility, bloody murder, cannibalism, and vampirism. But are these three spiritual traditions that form its basis valid in any way? Let’s take a moment to think it through.
1) Scapegoating – In determining if scapegoating is spiritually valid, ask yourself a simple question and feel the feedback you get from your spiritual core…
Does God allow people to shirk responsibilities for their words and actions by putting it onto others?
The answer to this question is a clear “no,” isn’t it? Even in our earthly experience as parents, a good parent doesn’t allow a child to deny responsibility by putting it on his sibling or pet. A child who never confronts the consequences of her words and actions never learns to become a better person. So is God a bad parent? Besides, allowing people to put their sins onto others gives the sinner an unlimited license to sin; he can do whatever he wants as long as he can find another being to kill.
In reality, when you try to shift your wrongdoing onto another human or animal, you are adding to your wrongdoing by shirking responsibility. And if you then kill that human or animal to take away your sin, you are committing another sin, that of murder. Scapegoating is primitive bullsh*t, and there is nothing spiritual about it. It is the delusional practice of a*sholes who are trying to avoid the consequences of their bad behavior.
2) Blood sacrifice – In determining if blood sacrifice is spiritually valid, ask yourself a simple question and feel the feedback you get from your spiritual core…
Does covering yourself in the blood of a murdered innocent, whether animal or human, clean away sin or cover you with sin?
Again, it’s pretty clear that you are actually marking yourself as a wrongdoer and a ghastly weirdo when you actually or symbolically cover yourself in the blood of a murdered being. So covering yourself in the blood of Jesus does nothing more than show you are a primitive lunatic. On a personal note, though, I was not above elements of this practice when I was younger. The last time I was “covered in the blood” was when I went down on my Chinese girlfriend during her period (true story). It was kinda chunky, if you know what I mean. I guess that means more sins were being shed.
3) Eating flesh and drinking blood to consume the spirit and/or take on the qualities of an animal or person – If this actually worked, I’d be clucking and scratching about my back yard rather than typing this entry. I eat a lot of chicken.
So as we have so far seen in this series, Christianity is a rather nonsensical belief system cobbled together from the invalid spiritual practices that predated it. It was fashioned over time, beginning with the lies of Moses, continuing on through to the lies of the Roman Empire, and culminating in the Crypto-Jewish lies of today. It is a religion that is, and always has been, about power, control, and parasitism. By claiming a special relationship with — and special revelations from — God, the priestly con artists have lived off of our gullibility for millennia…
Exodus 25 – 1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 “Tell the Israelites to bring me an offering. You are to receive the offering for me from everyone whose heart prompts them to give.
3 These are the offerings you are to receive from them: gold, silver and bronze;
4 blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen; goat hair;
5 ram skins dyed red and another type of durable leather; acacia wood;
6 olive oil for the light; spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense;
7 and onyx stones and other gems to be mounted on the ephod and breastpiece.
8 “Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them.
9 Make this tabernacle and all its furnishings exactly like the pattern I will show you.
Hmmm… so God needed all these fine and sumptuous material things in order to commune with his people? Or was it Moses who wanted all these things? And was it God or Moses showing a flash of anal-retentiveness in verse 9?
Clearly, it’s all a lie, and all we have to do to end it is collectively wake up to the truth and stop going along with it. But the primary appeal of Christianity has never been intellectual; it has been emotional. So in the next entry on this subject, we’ll explore how the priests and preachers manipulate people’s emotions to sell their religion.
