The Problem With Christianity

0

Let me first make it clear, there are no problems or flaws with the teachings of Christ.

That statement might confuse most, so let me explain.

What is called by men, Christianity, is not the same as the teachings of Christ. What is taught within this religious system is not the same as the teachings of Christ. The entire world of mankind have assumed, have been indoctrinated, and have been misled into thinking that they are the same.

Christ’s teachings and the teachings that issue forth out of what is called by men, Christianity, are diametrically opposed to each other. One is an impostor and counterfeit and the other is not. One is the truth and the other is not. Both are not the same.

This will pain and really upset those who claim that they are Christians. That is irrelevant to me. Why? Because those who claim that they are Christians have no problem letting others know how they feel and what they believe. As long as you believe as they do, they will not have a problem with you. It is acceptable to their views – without challenge or question – that they seek. They have no right getting upset with anyone because one does not agree with them.

Christianity Is Wolf-Like

If one looks at the violent history of what is called Christianity, it should – but it doesn’t – raise a red flag in the mind … but it doesn’t. After the ascension of Christ, something happened; something changed; there was a gross deviation from his teachings. Men of European-descent entered in and usurped those teachings, changed them, and built up a counterfeit religious system that merged with an already violent and racist European history.

Numerically and statistically speaking, Christian Civilization is the bloodiest and most violent of all civilizations in all of history, and is responsible for hundreds of millions of deaths and still to this day march forth over the earth committing much bloodshed.

Let’s see the proof etched in the historical record.

Arian, Donatist and Albigensian Heresies

During the periods of the Arian, Donatist and Albigensian heresies, millions were tortured and slaughtered in the name of Christianity.

The Crusades

The Crusades were a series of wars taking place in Asia Minor and the Levant between 1095 and 1291, in which Western European nations engaged.

The stated goal of restoring Christian access to the holy places in and near Jerusalem. The main series of Crusades, primarily against Muslims.

It is estimated that over those 200 years of The Crusades approximately 200,000 people died.

The Spanish Inquisition

The Spanish Inquisition was a religious tribunal or court established in Spain from 1480 to 1820 AD, but most active from 1492 on. It was responsible for the jailing, trial, torture, and execution of “heretics,” mostly Jews accused of not completely converting to Catholicism. During its activities, many thousands of Jews had to flee the country. 

It is estimated that 3000 to 5000 persons were executed by these Christians. This number is supposedly documented. How many “undocumented” murders, no one knows. It is estimated that 150,000 persons were burned during this period for being witches.

Spanish Inquisition

The African Slave Trade

A Pope, Pope Nicholas V, encouraged and sanctioned the African Slave Trade.  He gave the Portuguese the rights to acquire slaves along the African coast by force or trade, and he conferred the same rights to Spain relating to the newly-discovered lands in the Americas.

Current estimates are that about 12 million African slaves were shipped across the Atlantic, although the actual number purchased by the traders is considerably higher. How many died?

This is the most disturbing thing of all: Most persons of European descent claiming to be “authorities” hem and haw about even giving a number. It is clear to me why? It is appalling and embarrassing to them to publish the truth that “their own” could be so cruel. The put the number at 1.2 million on the trip over. I do not believe this. They never speak about the “business” of capturing slaves on “dry land” that involves warfare. So many died in that process. There were a lot of casualties in the process of capturing slaves.

If one were to ask non-European “authorities” the number that lost their lives by “Christians” run between 50 million to 100 million. Even a fraction of those numbers such as 10 million would be appalling.

Twentieth Century Warfare

The so-called “Western” or Christian powers have been responsible for at least twenty times more deaths than have Muslim powers. In this most brutal of centuries, we created incomparably more civilian casualties than have Muslims in the whole of Islamic history. These “Christian” powers carry “big sticks” when it comes to weapons of mass destruction and has had no problem using them.

Shock and Awe

Unleashing Two Atomic Bombs

A powerful so-called Christian nation dropped the deadliest weapon of mass destruction created by men upon another people in the final stages of World War II in 1945. They were detonated on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan.

These bombs killed 90,000–166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000–80,000 in Nagasaki. The figures are even higher for those who did not die but who were badly burned, maimed and disfigured. Many, to this day in Japan, who remember it, suffer emotional distress.

The Christian nation who unleashed this terrible weapon hold celebrations to this day of that horrible event. To this nation it was a victory; when the reality of it was murder.

 

Bosnia Between 1992 and 1995

Christian Serbs engage in the genocide of over 300,000 Muslims and systematic rape of over 100,000 Muslim women.

Rwanda in 1994

Over 900,000 Rwandans in 1994 died in a population that was “supposedly” 90% Christian. These “good” Christians did nothing to stop the slaughter, yet they wanted to exploit the people and their resources to fatten their pockets. When the slaughter began, they high-tailed it out of there. See the movie, “Hotel Rwanda” which accurately portrays those events.

Hate Groups

There are the KKK and Neo-Nazi hate groups who have their roots in Christianity. Christianity is violent by nature. While many will deny this, the facts reveal that it is true. 

When one asks why is there so much violence in the world? Well, Christianity is largely responsible. In its recruitment/conversion/missionary efforts, it has taught this hateful, divisive and violent mentality to those who join them. That foul stench is laid upon those who become Christians.

Personally, I am more concerned about being attacked, hurt, or killed by someone from that religious system than one of the other religious systems.

The Idolization of War

Another disturbing facet of Christianity – especially in the powerful Western nations is that it idolizes violence. Western “Christian” culture thinks of themselves as peaceful, but it is warlike, hateful, vengeful, intolerant, racist and White supremacist. Some might say that “Christianity” is not racist. The thought would be appalling to those hearing it. Yet, Christianity is in the business of “conversion.” This conversion process is not only about imposing a “religion” on someone, but also a European culture and mindset. Proof: Look at all of the images in art, literature, and film of Adam and Eve, Moses, Noah, Angels, Jesus, The Prophets and even God as “White” people. What I am saying here is that persons of European descent are OK with persons of non-European descent as long as they are converted and “Europeanized.” If you do not accept their conversion and Europeanizing or if you are a person of another religious system, you are made the enemy, even if you have done nothing to them. It is ingrained in their nature to conquer, subdue and convert you. 

If one looks at popular Western Christian culture Hollywood movies, video games, popular music, and sports, it is plain to see that they glorify and inculcate violence.

Accordingly, the relative rates of murder (especially random and serial murder) are higher in the Western World (particularly in the U.S., but even in Europe, taken as a whole) than they are in the Islamic world in counties that are not suffering civil wars, and this true despite the much greater wealth of the West.

Yet, “Christians” see they have no problem; everyone else does. Yet, they seek to aggressively convert others to their religion so they can teach people to be like them: Europeanized, warlike, hateful, vengeful, intolerant, and even racist and White supremacist.

I am sorry, nothing from God and His Christ would create such sickness and dysfunction. 

The average “Christian” man and women would find what I have written up to this point objectionable. Yet, it is factual and it is the truth – like it or not. The truth has never been an easy pill to take and then digest. The reason why they would find it objectionable is that they really think themselves godly or that God and Christ are with them and they have the truth. They have been conditioned to reject “truthful,” things said about them and to quickly label such “telling” as a person judging another person. Speaking the truth about someone is not a judgment, it is an exposing of hypocrites. That is what Jesus did to the leaders of the Jewish religious system of his day. In turn, that religious system sought to silence him and even put him to death. That religious system “prostituted” itself ” with the governmental authority (Rome) and made it happen.

Such a marriage between Christianity and the governmental authorities today exist. In many cases, Christianity is the government.

Christianity is aggressive and predatory, like wolves. It has a history of seeking out persons violently to bring to conversion.

If it cannot control or convert you, it paints you as the bad guy before the world and in need of destruction. While it dresses itself with innocence and an outwardly beautiful and lavish appearance. 

Yet, Christianity has the audacity to call itself godly and “the truth” and it dares any disagree, question or challenge it. It does not like being embarrassed, caught in a lie, or painted in a corner when it comes to a teaching of the Christ that they fail to observe or practice. It will not like you and it will make YOU the object and subject rather than the subject at hand. It becomes pharisaical seeking to silence any who exposes its hypocrisy.

Not Christ-like

Christianity is not lamb-like. It is wolf-like. It seeks men out – not out of love – but out of control and conquest. Once captured, it devours them; meaning that it indoctrinates persons NOT in the ways of Christ, but in the ways of a particular religious organizational teaching.

Too many think because they go to Church or are Saved or belong to a particular so-called Christian organization is synonymous with being a follower of Christ. This is one of the major things to convince persons of as being not true. Religious organization lays traps and snares to catch people. One of those traps is emotionalism. They form an emotional attachment between themselves and those they ensnare. This attachment is not easily broken. Yet, the result of the emotional attachment are persons who are spiritually drunk; they cannot ween themselves off of and away from their captor. They will defend the one bringing them into such a drunken state. The are very difficult to reason with because they are emotionally high-strung thinking that that is the state God wants them to be in. Ever try to reason with a drunk person?

The name of the religious game is to bring mankind under the submission of a teaching and Teacher other than the teachings of Christ. Christianity is not of God and Christ and is the primary enemy of God and Christ? Why? Because it makes itself appear on the outside that it is of God and Christ, but on the inside, it is something quite different.

It is not easy to a spot a good counterfeit. It takes education, knowledge, and skill. A good counterfeiter would seek to keep persons ignorant and at a third-grade level so that it will not be discovered as a counterfeit. Jesus aptly identified, warned of and foretold the greatest counterfeiter, impostor and misleader of mankind at Matthew 24:4-5. This counterfeiter would come truthfully acknowledging him the Christ, but would mislead many:

Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.

The denominations within the religious systems are many. (More than 41,000 as of this writing).

A Very Lonely Discipleship

The gate is narrow and only a few enter into it. True disciples of Christ would have nothing – absolutely nothing –  to do with any of the established religious systems on the earth. They would not be members of any of them no matter how tempting or appealing or claims they make. True disciples of Christ would attach themselves to the person of Christ.

A true test as to whether on is no part of the established religious systems in the world – especially having no part in the one calling itself Christianity – is when you stand behind and champion Christs teachings. Watch how Christianity and it’s membership react towards you; especially if you do not allow them to convert or convince to their side and run in their pack. The lamb-like veneer peels back and revealed underneath it is a ravenous wolf-like mentality. 

They are surprised that you do not join them in their reckless, wild living, and they heap abuse on you. (1 Peter 4:4)

Christianity takes 1 Peter 4:4 to mean what they want it to mean: Persons who indulge in drinking, partying, clubbing, barhopping and other vices. No, it is not just those things. It is also not being diligent in clinging to Christ’s teachings as he taught them. And, I tell you the truth, those teachings have been deviated away from by each and every religious system claiming to be of him.

Christianity is a False Prophet. It just takes on the appearance of being from God and Christ. The things that it and its members do are contrary to Christ’s teachings. It so easily endorses war against another nation of people just because it might belong to a nation that claims to be Christian and that so-called Christian political leaders tell them who their enemies are and they go along with it. It has been largely so-called Christian nations that have been the biggest murderers of members within the human family.

I give the examples of the Spanish Inquisition, The Crusades, the African Slave Trade, the dropping of two atomic bombs on a people, “shock and awe” bombing campaigns in Iraq, and I could go on and on. Yet this is the religious system that points a finger at everyone else as being the “bad guy” and yet it does not see what it itself has done or is doing.

Jesus said at Matthew 7:15:

Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?

Detachment from ALL religious system is making oneself no part of this world.

One must think: Jesus was not a member of a religious organization as he did not create one. None of his disciples where a part of a religious organization called by any name. No, not even Christianity. They were a simple Brotherhood who had in from of them one teaching and Teacher: Christ Jesus, a person.

Even though the Master is not with us in the flesh and blood, he lives in the heavenly realm and is the way in which we access The Father in heaven. He is also the only way we can receive anything from the Father. It will not come via another way such as a book called the Bible. (That would be another way, would it not)

True discipleship to Christ is a lonely existence in that it will be a rarity to find others like yourselves. Why? Because this kingdom of today is not of Christ. His kingdom is no part of this world. The world today is under the power of Satanic forces. These forces are very powerful and more than able to look lamb-like.

The problem with Christianity is that it is not of God and Christ. It is an impostor and counterfeit. It actually cleverly opposes (anti) Christs teachings and creates fruitage in people to oppose them as well while making it seem like these fruits are of God and Christ.

R. Jerome Harris

A Disciple of Christ in the strictest sense. I belong to no religious organization. I view Christ as my only Head, Master, Teacher, Owner, and Lord. (John 8:31-32, 1Cor 11:3) His God is my God and I champion his teachings above anything issuing out of ANY religious organization.
