Setting the foundations
So, shall we begin? Let’s get the ultimate statement done so that we can press on.
The whole of Christianity is based on a lie. Its entire dogma and structure is based on a foundation of selective, amended and false information. All decided upon, devised and constructed by the original Roman Catholic Church, more than 300 years after the key events in the story, then imposed upon mankind through millennia of suppression and oppression, crusades and wars, persecution, imprisonment and executions. In some cases, still continuing to this very day.
The origin of Christianity and the Church.
Before we go any further, we need to look at how and when Christianity and the Church began. Many say that Jesus started Christianity. Not so, not really. Yes he was prophetical and influential. But he did not create a movement or religion. I suppose you could very loosely compare him with today’s politicians, or even a kind of activist. He had followers, who became the early practitioners of Christology, but that is where the comparison ends. It was actually the Roman Emperor Constantine (Reign : 306 AD – 312 AD) who founded Christianity and what became the Roman Catholic Church.
In the centuries leading up to Constantine’s reign, there civil uprisings and wars between the ever strengthening and growing followers of Christology and the one god, and the polytheistic Pagans. This deeply pained and distressed Constantine, as he was a firm Pagan. So he decided to try to unite both religious factions and create Christianity, headed by a new governing body called the Roman Catholic Church.
By the time Constantine died in 337AD, the Church had asserted it authority with great force and become powerful. So much so that even on his death bed, despite Constantine remaining a Pagan all his life, the elders of the church (who became known as Bishops, Archbishops and Cannons etc), forcibly Baptized him as a Christian and administered his last rights against his wishes.
The Councils and Synods
Prior to Constantine’s reign and the formation of the Catholic Church, then during and for some centuries after, key Councils and Synods were held by the heads and elders of the Church.
Councils such as:
- First Council of Nicaea (325)
- First Council of Constantinople (381)
- Synod of Hippo (393)
- Council of Carthage (397)
- First Council of Ephesus (431)
- Council of Chalcedon (451)
- Second Council of Constantinople (553)
- Third Council of Constantinople (680–681)
- Second Council of Nicaea (787)
it was during these various Councils and Synods that the whole foundations and dogma of Christianity was decided upon and laid out. These included among others …
- The definition of the Holy Trinity
- The divinity of Jesus
- The wording of the Nicene Creed
- The creation of and the contents of the bible.
- What letters, accounts and documents were to be included and more importantly excluded.
- How these accounts were to be included and amended as necessary to conform to the dogma required.
- The timeline and accounts of the key events of the life of Jesus. ie the dates of his birth and the definition of Christmas, the date of the crucifixion etc.
- The definition of the Virgin birth and the establishment of Jesus’ mother Mary.
But the key point here is, all this was devised and decided upon by a room of men, power hungry men. Key accounts and events were amended or omitted from the pages of the bible. There was even the inclusion of misinterpretations and miss-translations (more on this later).
Going back briefly to the subject of timelines and dates of key events. The dates of the birth of Jesus, the crucifixion, All Saints day, etc.. were all decided upon to coincide with the Pagan dates of Yule, Ostara, Samhain etc so that the people’s transition, or “conversion” to Christianity would be easier.
