WHAT IS CHRISTIANITY?

 

Christianity is the religion that is based on the life and teachings of Jesus the Nazarene, as they are presented in the New Testament.

 

The Christians say that the books of the New Testament are inspired by God and are parts of the Bible, and say that the Bible is composed by the books of the Old Testament, that are the books of the Hebrew Bible, or Tanakh (Law, Prophets and Writings), which were written before the birth of Jesus the Nazarene, and by the books of the New Testament, which were written after the birth and death of Jesus the Nazarene.

 

However, the books of the New Testament are not inspired by God, because in them there are words that contradict the words that God had spoken before, that are written in the books of the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible, or Tanakh).

 

For example: It is written in the Tanakh (Old Testament), in Genesis 17:9-14 and Exodus 12:48-49 and Leviticus 12:3, that God commanded that all men be circumcised and, however, it is written in the New Testament, in Galatians 5:2, that Paul of Tarsus said for us not to do the circumcision.

 

Another example: It is written in the Tanakh (Old Testament), in Leviticus 11:1-30, that God commanded us not to eat the unclean animals, among which are the pig, the rabbit, the hare, the camel, the ostrich, the scaleless fishes, the shrimp, the lobster, the crab, the squid, the octopus, the mussels and the oysters and, however, it is written in the New Testament, in Romans 14:14 and 14:20 and in 1 Timothy 4:1-4, that Paul of Tarsus said that everything is clean, and that it is allowed to eat anything.

 

Another example: It is written in the Tanakh (Old Testament), in Exodus 20:8-11, that God commanded us not to work in the seventh day of the week, that is the Shabbat and, however, it is written in the New Testament, in Colossians 2:16, that Paul of Tarsus said that it is not necessary to keep the Shabbat.

 

Therefore, it is verified that the message of the New Testament is totally opposed to the message of God, that is in the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible, or Tanakh), so that it is evident that the books of the New Testament did not come from God, and are not parts of the true Bible, and that the true Bible is composed only by the books of the Hebrew Bible, or Tanakh.

 

Moreover, there are many contradictions in the books of the New Testament.

 

The Gospel according to John diverges totally from the Gospels according to Matthew, Mark and Luke, and anybody can note that the three synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) count the same history, and the Gospel according to John counts another history, totally different.

 

There are flagrant contradictions between the Gospel according to John and the Gospel according to Matthew.

 

For example:In Matthew 5:17-19, we see that Jesus the Nazarene said that he did not come to abolish the Law or the Prophets, and that we must fulfill all the commandments of the Law of God, with no exception, and that none commandment of the Law of God will ever be abolished, and however, in the Gospel according to John it is written that Jesus violated the Sabbath (John 5:18).

 

We also see that there is a great contradiction between the Gospel according to Matthew and the Gospel according to Luke, concerning to the genealogy of Jesus the Nazarene, because in Matthew 1:16 is written that the father of Joseph was Jacob, and in Luke 3:23 is written that the father of Joseph was Eli, and the genealogy of Jesus the Nazarene that appears in Matthew 1:1-16 is totally different from that which appears in Luke 3:23-38.

 

We also see many other contradictions in the New Testament.

 

For example: In Matthew 5:17-19 is written that Jesus the Nazarene said that he did not come to abolish the Law of God, and that we must obey all the commandments of the Law of God, without exception, and that none commandment of the Law of God will ever be abolished, and however, in Ephesians 2:15 is written that Jesus the Nazarene abolished the Law of God.

 

Ephesians 2:15 also contradicts Roman 3:31, where it is said that the Law of God was not abolished, and it also contradicts Acts 21:17-26, where it is written that Paul paid the expenses of four men that had done vow of nazirite, and had to offer sacrifices to God (Numbers 6:1-12), to show that nothing existed of what people said about him, but that he also walked correctly, keeping the Law, as well as all the Jews who believed in Jesus, who were zealous observant of the Law of God (Torah).

 

There is also contradiction between Romans 3:28 and James 2:14-26, because in Romans 3:28 it is written that the man is justified by the faith without the works of the Law, and in James 2:24 it is written that the man is justified by the works, and not only by the faith.

 

The books of the New Testament say that Jesus the Nazarene is the Messiah, but this is not true. The authors of the books of the New Testament mistakenly interpreted the prophecies that are in the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh). The messiah prince mentioned in Daniel 9:25-26 is not the Messiah son of David, but rather a priest ruler, because the priests also are anointed, and anointed is synonymous of messiah, and in Daniel 9:26 it is written that after the sixty and two weeks the messiah will be cut off, and he will not have, what means that the mentioned messiah will not have the kingship. The messiah prince mentioned in Daniel 9:25-26 was King Antigonus, who was High Priest and king of Judea from 40 BCE until 37 BCE, and was decapitated by the Romans in 37 BCE.

Yahveh bless you.
