Recently, I published an article in this very medium titled—Is Christianity Biblical?—which drew a lot of comments from readers to my e-mail address. While thanking all civilized and courteous people who asked me questions relating to that article, I hope the answers I gave to them were satisfactory.
But then, I know many more readers had questions to ask me, which they never did. It is for the benefit of such readers and also those who never had the chance to read that article that I write this current one. It is hoped that all readers will, ultimately, be properly informed by these articles, and then, hopefully, be forearmed for the cataclysmic events billed to come upon the earth, shortly.
What I am going to say in this article, I might have said in newspapers, television programs, and elsewhere on cyber space. But I deem a repetition of these issues will benefit the spiritual lives of cherished readers, and hence my writing of this article.
To begin with, let me say once again, and as forcefully as I possibly can, that Christianity is not biblical. No one verse in the English Bible mentions the word “Christianity”. Readers are advised to consult such books as—Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible and Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament to be helped to agree with me.
What this means is that, CHRISTIANITY is neither a topic that has been discussed in the English Bible, nor is it the religion of the English Bible. This is plain and simple, and I wonder if anyone can believe anything to the contrary!
Why, then, would any Bible-believers look to CHRISTIANITY as the saving religion? Why would people who believe in the English Bible as teaching the ONLY way into the salvation of the Most High One, still believe in CHRISTIANITY as a saving religion when that very Bible does not mention it in all its uncountable verses?
For people of Bible persuasion who are seeking the salvation of the Most High One, what this MUST mean to them is that CHRISTIANITY cannot be found in the mind, wisdom, will, and plans of the Most High One, if indeed the English Bible is His Word. This also means the Most High One has never planned to use CHRISTIANITY as mankind's means of transport to Him in Heaven!
As Bible-believers must know, all of Creation shall very soon pass away; but the Word of the Most High One shall remain and endure forever. So then, because Christianity is not part of the revealed Word of the Most High One, it will definitely pass away. In the coming new world, as never has been, worship in Heaven will neither be conducted in the manner of CHRISTIANITY nor will it have even one CHRISTIAN there to partake in it.
Be not quick to argue, dear reader, that Christianity will forever remain or be in the new world because someone called JESUS CHRIST, who many wrongly believe to be Son of the Most High One, and one they suppose to be the savior of the world, is he that founded Christianity. Well, the belief in this JESUS CHRIST is, in itself, the problem—the name JESUS CHRIST is the greatest deception the devil has pulled over the eyes of mankind.
One may ask: “How could this be?” Fact is, long before the coming of the English Bible, the devil—Lucifer—had vowed to reverse every plan, work, and timing of the Most High One (Daniel 7:25). Later in the day and long before our times, genuine servants of the Most High One warned salvation seekers to be wary of this plan of Lucifer, in the Hebrew Holy Scriptures (Second Thessalonians 2:3-12), but alas, the whole world now lies in Lucifer's wicked deceptions (First John 5:19).
You see, Lucifer, while yet of the angelic host in Heaven and before iniquity could be found in him, learned and professed the only true Hebrew name of the Son of the Most High One—YESHUA HaMashiach—by and around which all business in Heaven must forever and forever be conducted.
Later, when he was cast out of Heaven onto the earth, Lucifer knew the only name by which anyone under Heaven would ever be delivered from his (Lucifer's) control was YESHUA HaMashiach.
Lucifer, therefore, schemed to keep mankind from ever knowing this Hebrew name! His trick in this was simple but very effective, showing his master craftsmanship—let everyone on earth believe YESHUA HaMashiach in Hebrew is the same as JESUS CHRIST in English!
Lucifer, then, misled all to forget about the name YESHUA HaMashiach, the only name within which there is the power to bring salvation to sinners placed in it by the Most High One Himself, and to believe in JESUS CHRIST, deeming Christianity as begotten of and by him! “If there be CHRISTIANITY, we must have CHRISTIANS”, Lucifer quipped.
Lucifer thus developed a philosophy from JESUS CHRIST to CHRISTIANITY to CHRISTIANS—all of which is dung coated with gold! It is baffling how Lucifer managed this deception of mankind for so long!
Everything from JESUS CHRIST, to CHRISTIANITY, and their products—the diverse CHRISTIANS of the numerous denominations—are the handiwork of Lucifer. If CHRISTIANITY, its CHRISTIAN followers and its originator JESUS CHRIST were of the Most High One, He would have taught them in His Holy Word—the Hebrew Holy Scriptures.
And then, bible translators, while translating the Hebrew Holy Scriptures without His mandate, would have found at least one Hebrew word suitable for them to possibly translate as “CHRISTIANITY”. But as it is, they found no such Hebrew word, and hence the loud absence of the word CHRISTIANITY in all versions of their English Bibles!
You see, until the preaching of the salvation message of the Most High One reached Antioch, in Gentile land, where and when some people first called the true followers of the Savior CHRISTIANS, maybe to ridicule and annoy them, nobody ever bore the tag CHRISTIAN!
This means that, during all the days of the Savior on earth, and those of his apostles, no “CHRISTIANS” were “produced” among Israelites—the people to whom salvation of the Most High One belongs (John 4:22)—and thus, no single CHRISTIAN existed in the entire world during those days when the true Gospel ruled in the world!
Saul of Tarsus, one of the most illustrious Jews of the post-ascension era, was not a CHRISTIAN neither did he ever preach CHRISTIANITY. This may be shocking to many people! Saul was a preacher of THE WAY (Acts 9:2, 24:14), a faith which he showed in his own words, in Acts 24:14, was bereft of any so-called CHRISTIANITY!
CHRISTIANITY is hereby prophesied to die out pretty soon! When Heaven's gates open, only the people of THE WAY shall be admitted to worship YESHUA HaMashiach—who is THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE—in THE WAY and manner revealed by him to those who are found and function in him as holy and living branches of the True Vine.
