In Jesus’ day, the Pharisees viewed him as a threat. They could not entrap him by words. They could not intelligently engage him in conversation without looking foolish or hypocritical. So they resorted to personal attack upon his name (reputation) by saying that he did the works of a demon – Beelzebub – and they publicly tried to convince the people of that.
Today, there is a modern-day counterpart to the Pharisees of Christs day. It is called Christianity and she has her agents who love to publicly declare all who disagree, question and challenge her as persons either belonging to some evil cult, as misinformed or who are being used by the Devil.
Rarely, to these persons engage in the subject being discussed – especially if they have no answer or if it make them look foolish or hypcritical – instead, the place the focus on the individual and make him/her the subject. This is what is called dragging The Red Herring.
Christianity despises persons who question and challenges it. It loathes persons who think independently of it. Thinking persons ask questions. Thinking persons use what God gave them – a mind – to question, weigh, and conclude. This is what Christianity does not want you to do; especially if your questionings exposes her as a hypocrite who only says that she follows Christ but what she teaches and does are quite contrary.
Christianity wants YOU to he its follower, NOT a follower of Christ. It wants you enslaved to it and limited to a book called the Bible, rather than free and unlimited in service to Christ. In other words, it wants you to be its captives.
Here is a video discussing a reply I received from one of Christianity’s agents.
