The Imposter Bible arrives 300+ years after Jesus Christ proclaimed himself as the Way, the Truth and the Life.
As a book to confuse us all about the true nature and character of God, it is anti-Christ.
The venerable Bede tells us that King Lucius converted to Christianity in around 180AD. A good 1200+ years before the Bible was widely distributed.
Welcome to a site that explores the crisis of human identity. The crisis throughout human history of humans identifying with characteristics of a God that are not true, that come from the imagination of too many individuals claiming they heard from God this and that.
Before Lucius however there was another King in another part of the world who became a Christian in Jesus’ lifetime.
Traditionally, Abgar V (13-50AD) is considered the first Christian ruler in history. He was the King of Osroene . Thus, the appearance of Christianity in the Mesopotamian region was probably closely related to the activity of the apostles.
Several ancient Christian apocryphal traditions are associated with Abgar’s name, the most famous of which is the correspondence between Abgar and Jesus. There are no original letters preserved.
The spectacular way in which the message of Christ spread across the world 100’s of years prior to the introduction of a Bible speaks volumes about the prominence of Jesus’s narrative. The Bible is an imposter that arrived much later, after many people had already become Christians. No need for a Bible.
Around the 1st century AD, King Abgar is said to have written a letter to Jesus, requesting him to come and heal him of his illness.
Across the globe we have conflicting expressions of God based on descriptions that come from a multitude of obscure testimonies..
A common perception through the ages has been that only the literate elite, the crafters of law, qualify to be priests of authority under God. Another common perception is that God only communicated with people through a priestly Abrahamic line or an anointed King or Warrior Lord. It is a perception carried by many types of egotistical monsters occupying powerful posts in Church & State today who award themselves with an array of titles that suggest heavenly proximity, superiority of religious rank and a God-given right to rule over others, wearing uniforms bearing esoteric symbols with dark ‘spiritual meanings’.
Along comes Jesus Christ and attacks this imagined superiority of rank, saying to his disciples, “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi’, for you only have one Master and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father’, for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Neither are you to be called ‘teacher’, for you have one Teacher, the Christ.” No wonder he was hated, and still is, by those who make meaning out of images they create for themselves that promote their identity above others based on a relationship with a divine being. Jesus trashed these man-made images of identity and superiority when he said, ‘No-one comes to God except through me’. By saying ‘me’, he meant the son of man, a servant of all. An equal. When one explores who the ‘me’ is in the story and how ‘God’ was portrayed by those around him as ‘me’ and ‘God’, the all powerful ‘us’, it becomes clear why he also said the door is narrow that leads to eternal life.
The roots of human identity, and therefore human purpose, is based entirely on fantasy, an imagined reality. People imagine they are great, superior, a cut above the rest, either as individuals, or as a class, or as a nation. This arrogance of status puts into perpetual motion the revolving doors of economic conflict, of social exclusion, of transitory human value and of epic blood baths.
Here’s an example of this human hubris, this wretched arrogance of people and their God, written by a doyen of the British Establishment. Cecil Rhodes
