Apostle Peter or Roman Catholic Fraud

Updated on February 9, 2018

Who was Peter the Apostle?

With my years of reseach into its origins behind me there is no doubt about the lies and fraud engaged in by the Roman Catholic Church founders and many who have come after them. They needed credibility to launch Constantine's religion and to capture the minds and hearts of the masses.

First of all they were all Romans. What! Didn't the Romans crucify Christ and execute and torture his followers? Then how come the religion supposedly founded by Peter, an Apostle of Christ, become Roman?

The incredible truth is that while thousands were tortured and murdered by them the Romans got away with it because basically people are stupid. Even though the history books are full of the bloodshed and horror perpetrated by religious organisations, such as The Roman Catholic Church, the followers are too frightened by tales of mythical heaven and hell and so that they stick with it. If God is just then why would "he" allow such an organisation to control who enters his heaven or who is cast into hell. Why would "he"give the power of forgiveness to its priests, many of whom are pedophiles and criminals.

The Beginning of the Church

Catholic Roots in Babylon

With all the hype and lies that have been told and the book based on it, namely the New Testament, there is little chance for the lay person to establish the truth. But my research took me into places which those founding fathers never knew existed. In every word we speak, in whatever language is spoken, there is a record of past rituals and beliefs that were engaged in for millennia prior to the Roman Empire.

Those records reveal hundreds of crucified men purported to be the 'Sons of God'. They exist in India. the Americas, Egypt, Assyria, Europe and elsewhere, includimg Asia. Iconography depics men as angels rising on kites of circles and crossess to fertilise the Mother god, that is the sun.

'Sun' and 'son' have the same etymology and men everywhere called themselves 'sons of the sun God'. The Roman Caesar, Constantine, believed he was such a person and that his father was Apollo. This is not hard to accept when it is realized that no one knew how women got pregnant prior to animal husbandry and even then it remained a mystery. Women mated with many partners and no one knew about or kept dates and times of such events. Men did not interfere in women's business and many men today do not know the ins and outs of pregnancy. A virgin birth was proclaimed for all Sons of the Sun, including Pythagoras and many other philosophers of the Classic Era.

Beyond these things are the obvious fakes set in stone by the Roman Catholic Church, such as the image of Christ. The crucifix is representive of Jesus Christ on the cross? We know there were no such things as photographers (cameras were not yet invented) and there were no artists at the supposed site, according to the New Testament, which the Church relies on. In fact, these images and all that came about after the foundation of the church were those of mainly dead people whose corpses were found along river banks or even in the streets of poverty stricken areas.

The Roman Catholic Church escapes criticism by bulleying threats and condemnation of its people and trickery, along with false claims. Constantine forced citizens to worship the cross, an ancient sun sign, at the point of a sword. Many were brutalised when they refused. Hamstrings were cut turning men into cripples, tongues were cut out and hundreds of dissenters were sent as slaves into the salt mines. In case you doubt his actions there are decrees signed by Constantine surviving in the records ordering these atrocities.

By forcing people to worship the cross, and subsequently the image on it, the victims are drawn into the conspiracy. But the Roman Caesar had another trick up his sleeve. It was common practice to engage the willing in the reciting of a Creed. By acknowledging the words of such a prayer they confirmed their belief in it. This is borne out in the Apostle's Creed, where worshippers confirm their belief in the one God with three parts and in the Saviour God, whose very substance is a metaphor for the gods of most contemporary religions.

Worship of statues, crosses or anything else is forbidden in the Old Testament.

Every man is brutish in his knowledge; every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.

They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish.Jeremiah 1-:14,15

Who Was Peter?

Can a poor fisherman justify the Catholic Church?

According to the New Testament Peter was a poor fisherman whom we first meet in Matthew Chapter 4; verse 18. According to the New Testament he is the one chosen to build the Roman Catholic Church.

And I say unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.. Matthew 16:18

But we also learn that Peter was a liar, a traitor a hothead and a hypocrite. He also cursed and swore, so was this a good choice for a religious founder?

Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying. 'Thou wast with Jesus of Galilee.

But he denied before them all saying, I know not what thou sayest.

And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.

And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.

And after a while came unto him that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou are one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.

Then began he to curse and swear, sating, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew. Matthew 26:69-74

As fishermen he and the other disciples were largely uneducated because it was not possible for them to learn to read and write. Even the Roman emperor was illiterate and scribes were used to record events and tell of the events within society. As few could read what they wrote they were called on to interpret scrolls carrying messages.

The pretence engaged in by those who would have us believe otherwise was meant for the uneducated masses of the Roman Empire. Even then it was only a few who could take it in while most would have ignored it completely. The stories that the so called disciples of Christ went speedily around the empire spreading the word is as unbelievable as it is incredible. Their sole means of transport would have been by foot and, as they faced hostility everywhere from the Romans, they could not have gotten very far.

As Jerome compiled the New Testament he incorporated many tricks to fool the public. It is well considered that he wrote Matthew, as it contains Church laws which were unknown prior to his inventing of them. He also introuced the garments, feast days and instuments the church still uses which he borrowed from the Imperial Romans religion of sun worship. Look on the back of a priests garments and you see the glow of the sun, as too on the crucible.

He changed Simon's name to Peter (a play on Jupiter). This was important as Constantine built the Vatican over the site of the temple of Jupiter and it was the latter that was given the role of building God's church. Jupiter was too great a god in the Roman eyes to do away with but the clever association meant that he was still there, Jupiter is the same as 'I-Pita' or 'eye of Peter' meaning the sun. 'P-i-t-a' translates in ancient terms to 'Bearing the Eye's cross of power'. The Church uses the cross as its chief icon.

It was normal for the Catholic Church to build their places of worship over pagan temples when they invaded foreign countries. This is well known to have occurred in places like Mexico as an example.

      I really have no opinion on religion. It's up to the individual to make their own decision. Many thanks for the points.

      I bombed almost every quiz and I grew up Catholic, LOL! This reminded me of the classes we had to take at a Catholic University. It pretty much destroyed most of the non-Catholics, but we just shrugged. The Church being a liar wasn't exactly new to us.

      I believe Peter was picked (whether by God or not) to show that the God Jesus believed in was infintely forgiving. Hmm, sounds like a pagan concept to me. I always wondered what temple was destroyed to make the Vatican. Thanks for the info! :)

      I'm a former catholic and absolute believer in God. Had a huge lapse where I really questioned everything. Came to realize though...John 3:16, yep, I believe it! :)

      Interesting lens indeed. Have you seen the book: "The two Babylons"? Some of the things you are writing about is in there.
