We were once told, "the truth will set you free." So, do not act offended by the truth. You deprive yourself from an opportunity to become free of a false perception of reality you were deliberately trapped into from the moment you were born. After all, this is a time of change.
Something no trusting churchgoer is aware of, when certain Christian churches proclaim their love of Jesus and claim their institution and the Christian religion is a product of what Jesus taught, they are inviting everyone to worship a falsification of who Jesus was and what he stood for. So how did the bishops come up with the notion that Jesus’ death on the cross wiped clean the sin slate for everyone for generations to come?
To begin with, it is worth repeating it, Jesus did not die on the cross and we have the evidence to prove it. For hundreds of years now the people have been told this was what happened and since believing is easy, they believed that. As seen, though, their new so-called universal religion had very little literature to work with and basically no church Christianity traditions. In order to attract to their store of dangerously addictive illusions and false hope a larger segment of the market of believers, as seen here in detail, the early church bishops would take entire books, as well as holidays, rituals, and symbols that belonged to other religions, made them into something other than what they originally were and then put the label Christian on them. This was precisely what also happened in the case of the story about Jesus alleged death on the cross for our sins.
In Leviticus 16:15 we are told that, “Aaron must slaughter the first goat as a sin offering for the people...” As seen earlier, this was done to celebrate the time when their god allegedly killed the Egyptian firstborn male children and the firstborn among their animals in order to free the Jewish people from slavery. Exodus being a fantasy story with no historicity to it aside, the sins of the Israelites and the uncleanness of the Sanctuary were somehow transferred unto the goat. The priest would then kill the goat and the blood spilled was supposedly giving the person who had paid for the goat a clean conscience for another year or so. This way he was escaping the haunting shadow of his guilt, with this ridiculous ritual being the origin of the word scapegoat. Again, nothing makes sense, but that is religion for you. When in Leviticus 16:21 we are introduced though to the entire process, things get extremely hilarious.
On the Day of Atonement, the priest takes the goat to the altar where he would “lay both hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites – all their sins – and put them on the goat’s head.” Imagine the priest dressed in ceremonial garb talking to a goat and telling the poor soul, listen, we humans did some bad things, and guess what, you are going to pay for that. You are going to die so we atone. Would you buy that if you were the goat? Once again, though, killing goats to atone for one’s sins was good business for the priests. The Christian bishops, however, decided to lower the bar of rationalism even more and replaced the goat with Jesus, the alleged son of god. So, don’t blame the Monty Python people for making fun of religion in general and of Christianity in particular. It certainly had it coming.
By replacing the goat with son-of-god-Jesus and by making him the sacrificial lamb that allegedly dies to pay for everyone else’s bad behavior, the founders of the Christian religion were killing actually three goats with one stone. First, they were offering the paying customer a more dramatic, more impressive story, and because of that supposedly a more convincing religion. In the process, they would confuse everyone about the real symbolism behind crucifixion. The third and the most malefic accomplishment of all was, with the help of this made-up story they were able to falsify Jesus’ true mission and message.
