The Christian Model

‘J.C. The Christian Model’

By Tony DeLorger © 2010

Regardless of so-called proof to the contrary, no-one in all our human history has ever given one iota of evidence to the concept that Jesus Christ was the son of God or even the man existed at all. For such a supposed important figure to be never once described physically, to be never mentioned by any of the historians of the time, and to have never left any physical evidence of his life or death is rather odd, don’t you think? Of course it’s odd; the legend was simply the result of storytelling created to promote an aspiring religion of the time. The parchments containing the information of the life of Jesus were written by ghost writers nearly two hundred years after the fact, in a language unknown to those attributed to having written them.

In short the myth of Jesus Christ has been perpetrated some twenty times in as many cultures throughout the world beginning with Horus in Egypt nearly two thousand years before the suggested time of Christ. Each so-called saviour is a mirror image of what we know as the man Jesus Christ. Every facet of the tale has been reproduced in detail with the same terminologies and circumstances: preaching at ten, ministry at 30, 12 disciples, and miracles performed, one betrayal, crucifixion, rose from the dead on the third day and ascended into heaven.  Important dates and expressions are used as a metaphor within the story, originally based on the pagan sundial, astrological aspects and seasonal changes. The language of the day had far different meanings for what traditionalist Christians attribute, making the holy writings something of a reach after studying the evidence.

            These specific dates of birth, death and resurrection are from pagan beginnings related to seasons and the path of the ‘sun’ rather than the ‘son of God’ as the Christian metaphor suggests. In context the dates are meaningful, in a myth they are just dates given to a character in a story.

If a man call Jesus did exist in the time and was believed to be the Christ or saviour, it would have only been for a few followers, because there is no evidence of him, beyond stories. If he did exist, his voice would have been but one among hundreds of similar radicals, unhappy with their lot under Roman rule, and wanting to change current religious practices.

Christian doctrine in essence is positive, regarding morality and living a peaceful and considerate live, but to worship any character rather than the inspirational words he spoke is sheer lunacy.

I find it hard to believe that people still blindly follow a religion when the truth of all it stands for has been disproven and shown to be false. What then does that say about the followers themselves? If I were to commit to any cause I would first have to investigate the truth and credibility of the cause. How could you do anything less?

Religion, not unlike politics, is about controlling the masses so those who rule rule with complete freedom and autonomy. The deeper the religious fervour the easier it is for those in power to use that commitment to manipulate the direction of rule. This has always been and remains so today- the Catholic Church and Muslim religions for example are still dictating cultural living practices and defining societal roles. This in essence is a form of oppression, with the victims blindly volunteering.

Nearly all conflict in the world exists because of religious belief. That is not to say that religion is bad, but believing that you are right and that everyone else is wrong based on any dogma, can only divide humanity. We need to respect individual belief as long as it does not negatively impact on the lives of others. Then, that belief should not be acceptable to any society.

Agree chisfo, the problem with any dogma, is that is it easy to justify actions in the name of what is believed to be a higher cause. This world is a perfect example of how that doesn't work.

Tony, in this you sum up many great ideas and add on to the convincing pile against religion.

One of the greatest problems we face with "people of faith" is that their parent's religion was crammed down their throats as a child and it is very difficult for them to let go. However, as I discovered shortly after I learned how to read and interpret text, religion is just another fairy tale to try and get children to do the right thing. In some cases this can be good, but we have to do to modern religions what mankind has done to countless other religions of the past, let go. People who follow these religions are hurting mankind's progress, by holding us back and by becoming blind, morally dismantled sheep.

Thanks Tony, I do not see God through religion either. But I do believe He exist and that He came to this world through a virgin named Mary and experienced all this life as a man as we all do so He could feel our infirmities. He did this in a body we call Jesus the Christ. There are Historians that did mention Him and the tumult going on in Jerusalem. My Faith though is not in any of that, if there was no evidence at all ever in this world, I would still believe in the Word of God because I have seen it come alive and work in my own life as well as others. I have had angelic visitations as well as Christ Himself has came to me. I KNOW He is real and alive. The whole world can deny Him but my heart never will! praise the God of Jesus Christ my Lord!

Thank you for your remarks, but we shall agree to disagree. Yes faith is the first requirement of participation in religions. Religions are man-made, with a purpose. I believe that 'God' is more an energy that binds all life and has little to do with our human belief structures and petty wants and needs. The core of most religions as far as morality and taking responsibility is concerned, is just. Its just all the rest; the dogma that misguides lives.

You are mistaken, there are many historians who mentioned Christ and the whole perplexing issue of His life and upsetting the society of his day. You obviously have read every single historian that ever existed to make such an erroneous remark. It is a Walk by Faith, God wanted His Son to be trusted and taken at His word. God never wanted anyone to follow him by sight evidence. He wanted it to be by Faith. The core of Christianity is written all through the Bible that simple child like Faith is the 1st requirement for seeing and receiving the Gift of God. It was never supposed to be a walk by sight. God is an Invisible Spirit and you can only see Him by Faith which means Eyes of Understanding. You will never see God with your Natural Eyes.
