The Lost Doctrines of Christianity
Kids say the darnedest things. (o.O) ; When asked why Jesus was born the child said, "So Santa would know what day to bring the presents!" And when asked,"Why was Jesus resurrected? The same child simply replied; "So the Easter Bunny would know what day to hide the eggs silly!"
Is mainstream Christianity consistent with the message Christ preached 2,000 years ago? If it was then we should be able to find passages in the New Testament where Christ taught the guiding principals that inspired modern Christian Culture.
Did Christ Teach The Following?
“If you follow me and keep my birthday then a man in a red suit will fly in the sky with magic reindeer and bring you presents for being my disciples. And if you follow me and follow my teachings then a bunny rabbit will bring you colored eggs every spring. And if you stay true to my teachings you will keep a hallow ceremony every autumn and dress as ghosts, witches, and devils and teach the children that extorting candy is right and good.”
Obviously Christ did not teach this yet these events are the highlights of Christian Culture every year. These hallmark ceremonies of mainstream Christianities have their origins in paganism and are not consistent with the teachings of Christ or the practices of the early church. How did Christianity deteriorate to this level of paganism and materialism?
Another hallmark of modern Christianity is the belief that all is required of his disciples today is to believe on him and accept him as their savior and their eternal life is assured.
Regardless whether one studies the teaching of the Catholic Church or the Protestant Churches that came out of her, the belief systems of these mainstream organizations can be summarized as follows: “When someone is born, they get a soul that has never existed before, and unless that individual accepts Christ as their savior before they die, their soul goes to Hell.” This means that anybody who belongs to any other religion is doomed to eternal torment. Another interesting dilemma posed by this theology is that anybody who lived and died before the time of Christ is also doomed to Hell. How could they accept Christ if Christ hadn’t lived yet?
Yet when one studies the teachings of Christ, as recorded in the New Testament, he never claimed that he came to save everyone at that time. In actuality, he on purposely cloaked his teaching in parables to prevent the masses from understanding the true meaning of his teachings.
10 The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”
11 He replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.
12 Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.
13 This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.
14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.
15 For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’ 16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. 17 For I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.
When he did discuss his death it was to show that by being dead exactly 3 days and nights would prove he was the Messiah.
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: 40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. KJV
So what was Christ's Message if it wasn't "I have come to die for your sins?" His true message about who he was and who we are is more amazing than you can imagine. The message Christ preached was not new. It was a very old message about who Christ was and who we are.
