Banned from the Bible
Banned from the Bible
- The Art of Manipulation. A Philosophy and Religious study.
Is your family, church, religion, or political group the true path for you? We are all victims of some kind of mind control at various times.
Misguided beliefs and misguided hatred.
How deep are the sins of man? Are religious teachings blatant child abuse? All the religious lies are damning us to a life of emotional pain, unfounded guilt, fear and hatred of things unfamiliar to our basic beliefs.
The first affront to women's rights started when time began according to the old testament portion of the modern day bible.
Was this by "intelligent design" or misguided manifestations in the eyes of men?
The bible makes it clear that this was common practice thousands of years ago, and men today are hell bent on continuing this practice.
Religions need to clean up the mess they have created.
Research into the origin of the bible that people are so fearful of, reveals quite a shocking story.
Quoting from it to justify 'anything' is about as illogical as it can get.
The old testament had 5 separate and distinctly different versions
The modern day version was taken from the Hebrew (Jewish) versions.
The problem with that statement is that there were 3 distinct versions of the Hebrew text:
The Hebrew versions were translated from Hebrew to Greek to Latin and later to English.
Much of it was discarded as heresy because it was defined as:
( 1.) adherent to a religious opinion that was contrary to church dogma,
(2) a denial of a 'revealed' truth by a 'baptized' member of the Roman Catholic church.
(3) dissent or deviation from a dominant theory , opinion or practice.)
Most of the "stories of Solomon " were written by Solomon himself, in the 1st person. and all of which were banned from the bible, for obvious reasons.
He was known as the "master of demons".
He purportedly conjured up 36 demons who he then ordered to build a great temple for him.
All of his writings were banned from the bible, for obvious reasons.
The few passages regarding Solomon that are found in the bible were merely to depict him as a great king who accomplished much; without any references to the dark side.
Among the most prominent of the banned were the "testament of Solomon, the master of demons", and the "testaments of Peter and Simon" regarding their public displays of who had the greatest power over life and death.
Lilith the First woman
The second major story banned from the bible was the 'story of Lilith'.
She was the first wife of Adam.
According to the old testament she was created along with Adam as an 'equal' to him.
When he wanted her to 'lay beneath' him she refused to be subservient and demanded equal status.
She was the first female created and the first 'feminist' (believer in equality of the sexes). So she was given a choice of compliance or banishment.
She chose banishment and was exiled and labeled a demonic entity associated with infanticide (in those days it was common to lose infants to disease and other unknown causes, so they put that blame on Lilith), feminism, and demonic sex.
[much like the politics of today - If you stand up for your rights you are demonized by the 'establishment'].
Some things have not changed much over thousands of years.
Defending women's rights
Man's long history of misogyny
(misogyny - the having or showing a hatred and distrust of women)
The story of Eve was invented to replace the story of Lilith.
Eve was portrayed as subservient by the very nature of her being 'made' from a rib of Adam.
Thus demonstrating (symbolizing) her 'status' upon her "creation" so she could never be elevated to equal status , as Lilith was.
Not much more to say about the old testament, most of it could have been excluded as superfluous in my opinion. The other stuff that was excluded was not important for this hub.
The next ''Banned from the bible - the lost history of....'' will add more detail and will really get the religious zealots going on another rampage.
the Story about the Devil's Bible
- History of The Devil's Bible, Facts about this Idiotic Myth. Written in one night?
The DEVIL'S Bible. Is it as valid as the current version? Both books are works of fictitious fairy tales. And yet..
Creation of the New testament
The new testament - equally as shocking as the old testament.
During the creation of the new testament, of today's Bible, there was much conflict and blood shed in deciding what was to be embraced or cast out.
There were literally hundreds of letters, epistles, parables, psalms and proverbs written long after the death of Christ, who was a practicing Gnostic as were his disciples.
Gnosticism defined: the thought and practice of various cults of the late pre-christian and early christian centuries distinguished by the conviction that matter is evil and that emancipation comes through gnosis. (esoteric knowledge of spiritual truth held by the ancient gnostics to be essential for salvation) . This knowledge being - designed for, or understood by, the specially initiated alone. "Knowledge" that was restricted to a small group, that Jesus was believed to belong to.
These gnostic groups were a menace to society and had to be destroyed. They were considered dangerous heretics and their "gnostic secrets of the universe" writings were destroyed by the emerging Christian movement as were any one, or any thing, that was in conflict with their intentions of creating this new Christian philosophy.
There was a tribunal created that would sort through all the writings to select only those that were in line with the intended views they wanted to promote.
Creating this bible was essential to the creation of 'one group' that would be victorious in stopping the religious fragmentation arising A.D. They desperately needed to establish who would be in control of the new religion they wanted to create after the death of Christ.
They pored over all the writings of the time and selected only those that seemed to be in line with their 'intended version' of this new religious order.
Notably, amongst all those writings that were banned from the bible there were many tales of sorcery, witchcraft, demonic possession and exorcisms, recipes for casting spells and conjuring up of demons for evil purposes. (These particular writings were the ones assembled to create the Devil's Bible).
