    Yes I believe that much of Christianity is plagiarized from other belief systems including paganism.

    I believe Jesus brought the true and pure teachings first but that over time they became mixed with man made doctrines and teachings in attempts to adjust to changing times instead of accepting new Revelations and Prophets sent by God.

    Men do much to deceive and lead men away from Christ. The fact that they have George Carlin comedic relief first should tell you all you need to know about the authenticity of this rubbish.

    You didn't answer my question, did you watch the video?

    Actually last year I went to a Pagan meditation class where they gave me info on a different guy who went way more deeper into it and it was better then this ,this guy has 3 books out and 2 of them at more then 100 dollars at Amazon a piece.But you can watch the videos for free if anyone recognizes who Im talking about let me know.

    Yes, Jesus has gained Sun deity attributes, similar to Elijah being associated with deities such as Zeus and Perun.

    Human mythology and storytelling hasn't had anything really new to offer in a long time. This was true 2000 years ago, as well.

    Then you know the Gospel is truth. All else is fluff. Christ died on the cross for our sin and rose again on the third day, as it is written.

    I didn't' watch it. Those ignorant of Christainity never get it right. We do not worship the SUn of God. That is absurd. If you wan't to post another example they gave, feel free.

    1: Jesus' birthday isn't thought to be on December 25th. The Feast of the Nativity was split off from the Feast of the Epiphany on January 6th and moved to the 25th to give a Christian-friendly alternative to the Roman pagan civil holiday of Sol Invictus.
    To accentuate the fact that this was a development within the Roman Empire, the Armenian Christians (who had their own kingdom outside the Roman Empire) to this day celebrate Christmas on January 6th.

    2: Jesus being the SUn of God is an idea that has its sources even within the Old Testament. From Malachi 4:2...

    But to you who fear My name
    The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
    With healing in His wings;
    And you shall go out
    And grow fat like stall-fed calves.

    3: Not one single person in that video who is put forward as a parallel to Jesus was actually said to have 12 disciples. People pulled those numbers out of their butts. There is nothing in the primary or historical sources to suggest this.

    Zeitgeist. Haven't seen that in years. Unfortunately for the atheist crowd it's a fraud. Acharya S, and Peter Joseph (the creator) when asked for citations for the most controversial claims they made, they provide none, or show very unsubstantiated interpretations. If there was any plagiarism -- Peter Joseph is your man.

    For example, Horus was not born on December 25. In fact it shows Peter Joseph had plagiarised parts of popular Christian traditions. because as most biblical Christians would tell you, Jesus wasn't even born on December 25.

    Here's some sources you may want to look at before coming to an educated conclusion on the matter:



    [​IMG]

    The Bible says to not worship the sun, the moon and the stars in heavens as the pagans did:
    And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the Lord your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven. (Deuteronomy 4:19)

    If you don't watch the video you can not reply in away that is valuable.

    Tony Bushbys The Bible Is a Fraud is new and has been proven to be true. They say in that the original oldest bible in the world on display in Britain.

    Theres 14, 800 differences mistakes our bible has in it that that bible does not. In other words the Christian religion is a made up one by a made up bible.

    Yes I think It originated from Paganism, I know it did. Look at this link to the Fraud that is Christianity.Its new.Its true.

    FYI most Americans celebrate Christmas as the birthday of Jesus.If your going to say Christians don't believe the 25th of Decemeber is his birthday bring proof, sense the whole world just celebrated it Id say I win this one.

    The letter J isn't in the bible, there is no J in that alphabet, the name Jesus isn't real. The real name was Iesus, pronounced like Yezoos.

    It's not about who is "the winner" or "the loser", is about getting your facts straight.

    And the proof of Jesus' birth being not on December 25th is because December in Israel is in the middle of winter. The biblical reference to shepherds tending their flocks at night when they hear the news of Jesus’ birth (Luke 2:8) might suggest the spring lambing season. Most scholars would urge caution about extracting such a precise but incidental detail from a narrative whose focus is theological rather than calendrical.

    Your last point argues the name Jesus is wrong? Jesus is the direct derivative from the Greek translation of the NT. The NT wasn't written in Hebrew but in Greek. So, yes, there would be linguistic pronunciations that differ from each-other.

    I don't believe you on his birth but theres a lot more then that in the video. However the Messianic Christian church say its not in December its probably in October or November.
