I have taken an anti-Christian stand in many of my past posts, but that does not mean that I see the teachings of Jesus as evil. I believe many of them are excellent guidelines for living one’s life in an ethical manner. The place I believe Christianity goes wrong is by teaching that Jesus was no mere philosopher, but that he was divine. Since none of the gospel writers ever even met Jesus (the earliest gospel was written about 40 years after Christ died), it is very possible that Jesus never claimed to be the son of God. Perhaps he preached that we are all God’s children, which would mean that he was, indeed, the Son of God, but only on the level of every human being.
Many of the stories in the Gospels seem to be plagiarized from the Egyptian god, Horus. Let me point out some of the similarities.
Horus vs. Jesus
- Jesus’ mother Mary is a virgin in two of the Gospels. Horus’ mother was also a virgin.
- There is no historical evidence that suggests Herod slaughtered the infants, but it is in the Bible. Ironically, Horus’ mother fled to the Nile Delta (Mary and Joseph fled to Egypt) because she feared her brother would kill her son out of jealousy.
- Horus was known as Har-pa-Neb-Taui (Horus Lord of the Two Lands). Jesus was the Lord of Heaven, and the creator of Earth…
- Horus became his own father, kind of like the trinity.
- Horus resurrected Azra from the dead, coincidentally, Azra translates to Lazarus.
Considering the circumstances in which Jesus resembles other gods before him, I think it is fair to say that Christianity would be better of if Jesus was not divine at all. When was the last time someone flew a plane into a tower for Plato, Socrates, or Aristotle? I do not argue that Christian values are perverse, but rather that they should be incorporated into one’s life without fear or promise of reward. To me it seems tragic that so many “Christians” worship God, who they believe to be, by definition, love, more than they they show love in their everyday lives.
