BIBLE ISSUES & PROBLEMS WITH...
The Gospels say Christ had brothers and sisters.....
The Catholic Bible says, Christ did not have brothers and sisters, only brethren
One Bible says, Heaven is among you....
Another Bible says, Heaven is within you…
Some Denominations, think Christ was two distinct natures one Human, one Divine...
Others think Christ was God from birth and completely divine from the beginning. Apparently like any other child spending three years, crawling around the floor playing with toys! A bit dull for one who creates solar systems and galaxies, don`t you think !!!
The Old testament is translated into Greek….Those of circumcision, to whom the book belonged, said it had been distorted in translation and would not allow it to be used in Synagogues…”hmmm”?
The Latin version of the Old testament was taken from the Greek Version?
No, the Latin version was taken from the Hebrew?….Differing opinions it seems on this one???
Mary gave birth to God, she becomes God`s Mother, presumably teaching, the perfect, all knowing Omni-potent force as he grows into a man...
(How about the possibility that this (Fairy tale/lie) may constitute the origin of the concept of a “Fairy” GOD mother?)
How about, Mary gave birth not to GOD, but to Yeshua...
Yeshua, is then educated by various Esoteric schools, such as the Essenes, for 30 unknown years in preparation for his mission. He receives fully the Divine consciousness, becoming THE CHRIST, only when his mind and body have been fully possessed by the SPIRIT of God, as it descends upon him during his baptism by John…(More Likely don`t you think?)
If Yeshua was Christ from birth and therefore, God incarnated upon the earth, why would any form of baptism be needed, baptism is an act of repentence, the symbolic ritual involved, depicts the washing away of sin…..How could this be right for God?
Yeshua...in translation is changed to Isu/Iesous in Greek...All Phonetic resemblance has been removed, why??? This then is changed again, in Latin to Je-sus why????
FOR GOODNESS SAKE QUESTION! THINK!!!
…Is the world famous Boxer, Muhammed Ali`s name something different in Greek?
No, people in Greece do not give Muhammad Ali a new name…they say Muhammad Ali, when talking about him, do they not?…they don`t translate his name into something which means or sounds completely different…THEY DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM PHONETICALLY MAKING THE SOUNDS “MUHAMMED ALI” SO WHY WOULD THEY!
The Greek Iesous, apparently means “healer”…which relates to only a small fraction of what Christ did, during his time on earth…Healing was something he did, it was NOT his name. When compared to the actual accomplishments of his life, what a vague and mundane word “healer” is for the first Writers of the Greek New Testament to choose to call him…If they ever actually did? We don`t know, as the original writings in Greek, no longer exist.
This is equivalent to the Greeks REPLACING Muhammad Ali`s name, with the Greek name, MAVROS AKTIVISTIS, which means, “Black activist”, or just AKTIVISTIS.
Replacing his actual name altogether, with a word for something he did.
All future generations of Greek speaking people, would then use this word, whenever speaking of something relating to Muhammad Ali…His original name gradually being completely forgotten…
Really?….Ridiculous and Unbelievable!!! WAKE UP!..

Son of the most high?…..His FATHER David? Huh!…That would be Solomon would it not! How on earth can one who ended by worshiping and using demons, introduced to him by his wife, ever be considered, SON, of the most high!!! Son of the Most High in the sky, son of Saturn would be more applicable to Salaman!….Unbelievable!
Christ himself indicated quite clearly, when he was handed the book of Isiah in the temple, that could not be considered the son of David…
Apparently, there is no mention of this anywhere in the Old Testament??? Some have said that according to their research, there may not have been an actual place called Nazareth at that time, and that the the word Nazareth, means “from the constellations” and may have been adopted afterwards (More group research needed for verification).
THE VIOLENCE INCITING GODS/Goads OF THE OLD TESTAMENT, ARE A REAL PROBLEM TO US @ THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN MISSION SCHOOL.
“WOULD BE CHRISTIANS” ARE IT SEEMS READY TO ACCEPT A GOD, MADE FOR THEM BY THE JEWS, THAT REFLECTS THEIR OWN IMAGE AND LIKENESS, GIVING GOD THE SAME ATTRIBUTES OF INNER TURMOIL, FRUSTRATIONS AND EVEN REGRET AS THEY THEMSELVES EXHIBIT AND EXPERIENCE…
BUT THIS IS NOT THE NATURE OF THE SUPREME BEING!
THEY ARE DELUDED!!!
“GOD IS LOVE, love is NOT wherever there is violence”…
Therefore GOD is NOT…whenever or wherever there is Violence. If God is not, then WHO/WHAT is?…
In the Old testament violence is demanded, by some angry, jealous, vengeful so called “God” A god who according only to a hollywood-esque epic Jewish “story” (with zero historical evidence to support it or lend any credence to it whatsoever) kills all the fist born innocents of Egypt!!!
So what we are actually talking about and accepting is… apparently a God, who commits infanticide, who destroys Kings and their nations in order to grab a fertile peice of real estate to give to a people, who refuse to obey his commands at every turn…are you kidding!
HELL OF FIRE POSSIBILITY FOR CALLING SOMEONE A FOOL….BUT FOR DESTROYING THE CHILDREN OF AN OPPOSING NATION….ENCOURAGEMENT!!!
FOR SPEAKING TO SOMEONE CARELESSLY….JUDGMENT!!!….BUT STONING A MAN TO DEATH FOR GATHERING STICKS ON THE SABATH…..ENCOURAGEMENT!!!
THERE ARE NO OTHER GOD`S???
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY ONLY ONE SUPREME BEING. THE SUPREME BEING EXISTS AS A TRININTY OF THE THREE FORCES OF POWER, LOVE, AND WISDOM…HE HAS NO COMPETITION!!!
THE NOTION IS RIDICULOUS IN THE EXTREME!!!
A GOOD HUMAN FATHER DOES NOT THREATEN TO MURDER HIS CHILDREN IF THEY FAIL TO DO AS HE ASKS OR ADVISES…HE LET`S THEM LEARN BY THEIR OWN MISTAKES, SO THAT THEY MAY COME TO APPRECIATE HIS WISDOM AND COME TO LOVE HIM FOR SHARING IT, AND SELFLESSLY CARING ONLY FOR THEIR WELLBEING…
THE SUPREME BEINGS CAPACITY TO LOVE, AND HIS WISDOM IN CARING FOR HIS CHILDREN, IS A TRILLION TIMES GREATER THAN THAT OF A HUMAN FATHER FOR HIS CHILD…..
SEE: CAN YOU LOVE “THIS GOD” 1 & 2 ON THE GOING UP PAGE….
Brock j 2020,
LOST AND EMITTED BIBLE BOOKS.
The Old and New Testaments of the Bible were put together by a group of scholars, theologians, philosophers and politicians. AT VARIOUS ECUMENICAL COUNCILS, they debated and voted on which books, writings and letters should or should not be included as Bible Cannon, Tradition or Dogma. They chose which writings should be considered the word of God/Divinely inspired and which were not.
Books that received a majority vote, by the counsel were compiled and cannonized, as part of that which became generally accepted Christian scripture.
The rest of the stories and writings were discarded. These records are sometimes referred to as “the lost books of the Bible”.
Here is list of Ecumenical Councils;
- 48AD Jewish council of Jerusalem
- 325AD Constantine holds the first council of Nicaea
- 381AD Constantinople council makes changes to the Nicaean council version
- 397AD council of Carthage
- 431AD council held at Ephesus
- 451AD council at Chalcedon
- 600AD Rome decides that Latin is the only language to be allowed.
- 787AD council held again at Nicaea.
- Roman Catholic Church recognises the evolution of dogma through a continuation of councils, the Eastern Orthodox church does not accept this evolution and recognises only the first seven ecumenical councils only as definitive.
