Christianity: The Great Jewish Hoax

by Thomas Dalton, PhD

AT 2.1 billion people, Christianity is the largest religion on Earth. And yet, not a fraction of a percent of these people understand even the basic facts of their own so-called religion. If they did, they would be utterly appalled. Their entire religion is a fraud; it is based in Jewish lies and Jewish duplicity to an extent that is astonishing. If only Christians knew that they had been duped! My objective here, in this short essay, is to highlight the basics of the Judeo-Christian hoax, in an effort to awaken the more open-minded Christians out there, and hopefully to raise their awareness of ongoing harm caused by this corrupt and soul-destroying theology.

Though we obviously can’t know for sure, there are very strong reasons for thinking that Jesus’ birth, his life story, and in fact the entire Christian project are Jewish constructions. I will argue here that most or all of the Christian story is mythology, fabrication, and yes, a lie. It was a kind of fraud perpetrated, originally, on the superstitious pagan masses. And they bought it — hook, line, and sinker. And millions continue to buy it, to this day, two millennia later. How this could have happened is one of the most important, and least known, stories in Western civilization.

Origins and Miracles

Let’s start by thinking about what we know, and what we don’t know, about the origins of the Christian story. Unsurprisingly, it turns out that the latter is much larger than the former.

We are told that Jesus was born around the year 3 BC. The star of Bethlehem — so central to the Christmas story — was the first Christian miracle. It appeared “in the East,” moved through the sky, and hovered over the manger so that the three Magi could find it. Various attempts have been made to explain this “star,” including a rare planetary alignment, an unusually bright Jupiter, a comet, or a supernova. This is almost certainly nonsense. We have no independent confirmation of any unusual celestial events around that time, and even if we did, it doesn’t help the story. In no case could anyone use a light in the sky to “find” a particular village like Bethlehem, let alone a specific manger.

Jesus allegedly began his ministry when he was “about 30” (Luke 3:23), and it continued for three years, until he was crucified around the year 30 AD. During these three years, he preached to “great throngs” of people. He allegedly performed some 36 miracles, depending on the details, which included exorcisms (around 7), resurrections of the dead (3), manipulations of nature (9), and healings (18). Two of these miracles — the two separate ‘fishes and loaves’ episodes (Mark 6:30 and 8:1) — were performed in front of at least 4,000 and 5,000 people, respectively: hence a total of more than 9,000 witnesses. And he had 12 apostles following his every move.

But the main problem with all these miracles is this: We have no independent confirmation. How could it be that 9,000 people witnessed the fishes-and-loaves miracle, for example, and yet not one of them wrote anything? (Or at least, nothing that survived.) Nor reported it to someone who could write? Why did the 12 apostles — who were more convinced of Jesus’ divinity than anyone else — never write anything? Why, in fact, do they disappear from history as soon as Jesus dies? It does no good to cite Paul; he was not one of the 12 apostles, and never knew Jesus personally. And it does no good to cite Acts, which allegedly provides facts on a few of the apostles; this document was written by the same anonymous author of the Gospel of Luke, and thus provides no independent confirmation.

What about the Romans? They were the ruling power in Palestine, arriving six decades before the alleged birth of Christ. They were acknowledged experts at documentation. We have records of military battles, taxes, foreign trade, political events, and other such things, all from the early first century. We have coins; we have papyrus fragments; we have stone engravings. We have the “Pilate Stone” that confirms the existence of Roman governor Pontius Pilate, during the years 26 to 36 AD. And yet we have not one piece of Roman documentation mentioning Jesus, his miracles, or his following, from the time in which Jesus lived. This is clearly absurd. As governor, Pilate would surely have heard many of the Jesus stories, and would surely have written many times to Rome, asking for advice, more troops, etc. Yet we have nothing at all from Pilate nor any Roman authorities.

What about the Roman writers? There were many who lived at that time, or shortly thereafter, and thus had an opportunity to comment on Jesus. They were major figures in the Roman world, among the brightest and most perceptive men of the age: Apion, Seneca, Petronius, Quintilian, and Plutarch, among others. But we find not one word from any of them. In fact, the earliest Roman reference to Jesus is from the historian Tacitus, in his work Annals — written in the year 115. And then, only a mere two sentences.

How could it be that the ruling authorities and experts — Pilate and the Roman writers — failed completely to document the coming of the Son of God? All of them? “Perhaps they did, and all such records are lost to history,” says the Christian apologist. But this would have been incredibly bad luck: The greatest event in history, and every shred of contemporary documentation is lost to us? Impossible.

Jesus the Jew

The lack of contemporaneous evidence is so striking that we could legitimately conclude that any such “Jesus” never existed at all — that he was an outright literary construction from whole cloth. But for reasons that I explain below, I suspect that there was a kernel of truth in the Jesus story. I think it was most likely that an ordinary man, a “Jesus of Nazareth,” most likely did live at that time. He likely was a Jewish rabbi, a defender of the impoverished Jews, and likely a rebel against Roman rule. And he likely did get crucified. But beyond that, we know literally nothing reliable about his life or thinking.

If Jesus the man — not the ‘son of God’ — did exist, then it is unquestionable that he was a Jew. There is much evidence for this in the New Testament, which I take to contain, as well, a kernel of truth underneath the vast fraud. (Frauds with a kernel of truth are always more convincing, after all.)

So consider what the Bible tells us about Jesus. His mother, Mary, was a Jewess: she was a woman “born under the law [of Judaism]” (Gal 4:4). And she was a blood relative of Elizabeth, of the tribe of Levi (Luke 1:5, 1:36). Jesus’ father, Joseph, was of the “House of David” (Luke 1:27). Both parents “performed everything according to the [Jewish] law of the Lord” (Luke 2:39).

Jesus himself is repeatedly called ‘Rabbi’ (Mark 9:5, 11:21, 14:45; Matt 26:25; John 1:38, 1:49; 3:2). He celebrated Passover (John 2:13). The Gospel of Matthew opens with these words: “The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, son of David, son of Abraham.” We read in Hebrews that “it is evident that our Lord was descended from Judah” (7:14). He regularly attended the local synagogue (Luke 4:16). Jesus himself told the people that he came “to fulfill the [Jewish] law and the [Jewish] prophets” (Matt 5:17). And of course everyone thought of him as “king of the Jews” (Matt 2:2; John 19:3).

This much, then, is clear: Jesus, Joseph, Mary, along with all Jesus’ friends, acquaintances, and disciples, were Jews. This is precisely why Nietzsche, commenting on this situation, said, “The first thing to be remembered [about Christianity], if we do not wish to lose the scent here, is that we are among Jews” (Antichrist, sec. 44). Indeed.

This being the case, we would expect that, at the very least, that Jewish scholars of the time would comment extensively on this miracle-man who emerged in their own community. But no. As it happens, not a single Jewish scholar of Jesus’ time, nor for decades afterward, makes even a single documented remark on this new Christian movement. For example, Philo of Alexandria was a famous Jewish philosopher who lived from 25 BC to 50 AD. He wrote extensively, volumes of which have survived, but never mentioned a Jesus of Nazareth, son of God.

As it happens, one Jewish writer did eventually mention him: Josephus (37-100 AD). His work, Antiquities of the Jews, briefly refers twice to Jesus and the Christians; but it wasn’t written until the year 95 — some 60 years after the crucifixion. His earlier work, The Jewish War, circa 75 AD, has no mention at all of the “son of God.” Something is clearly not right with the traditional story.

The Plot Thickens

If we temporarily disregard the writings of Paul (circa 50 to 70 AD) and the four Gospels, we see that the few lines by Josephus, in the year 95, are the very first non-Christian references to Jesus. And we have to go all the way to Tacitus, in the year 115, to get the first Roman mention of the Christian movement. Such a thing is absolutely impossible, if Jesus, miracle-working son of God, actually existed. Either “Jesus of Nazareth” was so inconsequential that no one of his day, or even decades after his death, bothered to mention him. Or else he never existed. There is no other reasonable conclusion.

Given the utter lack of independent confirmation of all major aspects of the Christian story — the star of Bethlehem, the miracles, the crucifixion, the resurrection, the apostles — we can conclude only one thing: the story was made up. It was a deliberate and willful fabrication. In other words, somebody lied.

This raises some important questions: Who lied? When did they do it? And why? We have some clues that may provide answers. Our first main suspect is Paul (aka Saul) of Tarsus, the Jewish Pharisee, whose letters are the earliest known documentation on Christianity. Good Saint Paul — first liar of Christianity. I will return to his story shortly.

The most egregious lies, though, occur in the four Gospels. Consider this question: When, reasonably speaking, would someone have documented in writing the life and sayings of Jesus? Probably during his adult life — that is, roughly 25 to 30 AD — or at least, immediately upon his death and resurrection. Surely not more than a few years later. But this is not what happened. The earliest Christian writings, the letters of Paul, weren’t written until 50 AD. The first of the four Gospels, Mark, wasn’t written until 70 AD. Matthew and Luke, not until 85 AD. And the Gospel of John, around 95 AD. These are decades after Jesus’ death — 40 years, at a minimum. Why wait so long? And how accurate could they have been, with so much time having gone by?

We have no good answers. Unfortunately, the liars who wrote the Gospels are unknown to us. Whoever they were, they were not apostles, and they certainly did not know Jesus personally. They were, however, almost certainly Jews. They had extensive knowledge of Judaism, Jewish tradition, and the Jewish Old Testament. Their label as ‘Christian’ was strictly a name; by birth, ethnicity, and blood, Paul and the Gospel writers were unquestionably Jewish. And they constructed the Christian story as we know it today.

The final question then is: Why did they lie? What was their motive?

“They never would have lied,” interrupts the Christian apologist. “Christians were persecuted by the Romans, and it would have been madness, if not fatal, to promote Christianity.” But of course, all the Jews were already persecuted. The Jews of Palestine were in constant conflict with their Roman governors. They developed a deep-seated and visceral hatred of the White Aryan Romans. The elite Jews hoped, ultimately, to drive them out and regain power over the region — a power they held prior to the Roman invasion of 63 BC. Both the (few) ‘Christian’ Jews and (many) ‘Judaic’ Jews were in constant opposition to Rome, and were thus constantly oppressed. It was neither better nor worse to be a Christian.

But this situation, in fact, gives us a clue to the possible motive. The local Jewish tribes would have been hugely overwhelmed by the invading Romans. The Jews were vicious fighters — recall the Biblical extermination of the Canaanites in the 1200s BC — but were no match for the Roman Empire. They would have bitterly resented Roman rule, and sought all possible means to undermine it. Military force was not really a viable option, but various guerilla operations could cause some damage. And there is evidence that Jewish factions fought back, at least from the first decade BC. But one can imagine that such actions would have had little lasting effect. Better options were needed.

Recall that the Jews were a minority in Palestine at that time — as, of course, were the Romans. The majority consisted of the indigenous Palestinian masses, along with any incidental Egyptians, Syrians, Phoenicians, Persians, Greeks, and so on, who lived in the region. The masses were neither Roman nor Jewish. And of course, they weren’t yet Muslim; that religion would not exist for some 600 years. They would have adhered to a grab-bag of pagan traditions: Zoroastrianism, cults of Adonis and Mithras, Sibylline cults, and various sun-worshipping religions. These sects were generally ill-defined, superstitious, and highly mythological in nature.

The Jews knew this. And they also knew that, in order to make an impact on Roman rule, they would have to get the superstitious masses on their side. But this was a big problem. The masses were not intrinsically anti-Roman. In fact, more likely the contrary. From their viewpoint, when the Romans moved in, it was more or less a change in government. And for the good: the masses generally disliked the Jews anyway, and the Romans brought with them many advancements in civilization. So the Jews had a big problem: How to win the masses over to their side, and turn them against Rome?

Clearly they could not make them ‘Jewish.’ Judaism wouldn’t permit it, the ethnic and racial exclusivity of the Jews wouldn’t allow it, and the masses would never go for it, even if they could. All of Judaic tradition, from the Torah to the Talmud, was geared towards manipulating and exploiting the inferior Gentiles. The Jews would never have dreamt of mass conversion.

Therefore, something else was required: a new way, a new outlook, a new worldview — something to subtly and perhaps subconsciously bring the masses into opposition with the Romans, and on the side of the Jews. Not Judaism, but something Jewish in essence. A new story, a new moral system, and yes, a new religion: Christianity.

A New Religion

This was likely the thinking of Paul and his small band of followers, which may have included Peter, Luke, and Mark. To win over the masses, they would need to construct a new mythology, one that would both entice and frighten — a carrot and a stick, as it were. To be successful, it would have to be both anti-Roman, in some sense, and yet rooted in Jewish values. Ideally it would also draw on pagan traditions and concepts, to make for easy assimilation. And finally, it must ultimately weaken, not strengthen, the masses; there certainly was no wish to create some Frankensteinian monster. All in all, a challenging task, to say the least.

Paul would start with God — not the Roman or Greek conception, not the pagan gods, but the Jewish God, Jehovah. The masses would have to worship the Jewish God. But this deity was distant and abstract; indeed, according to the Jews’ own rule, no graven image was permitted. Such a god would not work for the masses. They needed something tangible, something concrete, something they could touch, feel, and love. They needed a man: God incarnate, one who loved them as much as they should love him. This man would prove his love by giving his life — for them, for their eternal life, for their “salvation” from this world of woe. It was the ultimate sacrifice. Who could fail to revere such a man? And all the better, if he was a Jew.

This man, this son of God, this God himself, would need a name — a common name: Jesus. He would have to have lived in a small provincial town: Nazareth. (Harder to verify things this way.) He would have to be born in an even smaller and more obscure place: Bethlehem. Befitting a god, he would need a miraculous, virgin birth — to a Jewish woman, of course. He would have to play the role of “savior.” This was a clever double entendre: saving the masses from eternal damnation, and saving the Jews from the Romans. To ensure no mortal remains, the story would have to end with a vanishing of the body. To boost credibility, it would be interwoven with factual people and places — just enough truth to make it seem believable. This suggests that maybe Paul took a real Jew, Jesus, who really got himself crucified, and turned him, years later, into the Messiah and son of God.

The final step would be to place the whole story at least 20 years in the past: near enough to be current and yet far enough to be hard to verify. This would explain why the earliest of Paul’s letters — Galatians and 1 Thessalonians — date to around the year 50. And it is consistent with the fact that we have absolutely no evidence at all of Jesus or the Christian story prior to that date, from any source whatsoever.

God, Jesus, eternal life in heaven — these were the carrots. What about the stick? What is the fate of those who refuse to believe the Jesus story? We know the answer: hell. Hell — defined as a place of permanent torment for the wicked sinners and unbelievers — seems to have been a Jewish innovation. The Old Testament, surprisingly, contains nothing like this. It does have a related term, ‘Sheol,’ but this is simply the afterlife and not a dedicated place of punishment, in contrast to heaven. Greek and Roman mythology, on the other hand, had Tartarus: a hell-like place in the underworld, reserved for those deserving punishment. It seems that the New Testament writers borrowed the idea but renamed it ‘Gehenna’ or ‘Hades’ — both translated as ‘hell.’ For Paul and friends, dying wasn’t frightful enough. It had to be hell-fire, eternal flames, lake of fire, and eternal torment for the non-believers (Mark 9:43; Matt 5:22; Luke 16:23). Only this could scare the superstitious and unthinking masses into their welcoming arms.

Finally, and most importantly, there was the moral component. This “Jesus” had to proclaim values that would turn the masses away from Rome and toward the Jews, all while weakening them. “Salvation is of the Jews,” after all (John 4:22). Rome would be represented as evil, sin, corrupting power, sensuality, worldliness — the devil. Jesus, the Jewish rabbi, is peace-loving, blessed, humble, holy — innocence itself. The good Christian is an innocent lamb, just as Jesus himself is “the lamb of God” (John 1:29). The Christian should “love thy neighbor” — that is, the Jew, neighbor for centuries, and not the Roman intruder. Meek, mild, and timid, he will “inherit the Earth” — someday. Eyes thus fixed on the glorious afterlife, following herd-like after their Jewish shepherd Jesus, the Christian masses turn away from Rome. The Romans become sinful heathens, non-believers, devil worshippers. At this point, the moral victory is complete. Political victory is not far behind.

Victory — Three Centuries Later

And victory was indeed achieved, though it took a few centuries. Paul died sometime during the first Jewish rebellion of 66-70 AD, and so never lived to see the fruit of his efforts. The so-called 12 apostles and the anonymous Gospel writers were gone by the early 100s. By that time, however, the doctrine — “cult,” actually, as the Romans put it — had spread to the masses. Very quickly, Christianity ceased to be a Jewish movement, and became dominated by non-Jews. The most prominent early Christians — Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Polycarp, Quadratus, Papias, Marcion — all seem to have been Gentiles. Not understanding the origins of the story, and not relating to the Jewish penchant for revenge against Rome, the naïve Gentiles accepted it as literal truth. A new religion was born.

Being now dominated by non-Jews, Christianity quickly developed a self-conception as a religion that was ‘different’ from Judaism. A tension emerged: yes, Jesus, Mary, Paul, Peter, and so on were Jews; yes, Jehovah was God; yes, Jews were “the chosen people”; but still… Jews never did accept Jesus as their savior. They didn’t believe in hell. They never came to church. And in any case, their racial exclusivity and obnoxious customs and social mores made the Jews as detested as ever. Thus we find the classic love-hate relationship emerging early in Christian history. Already with Melito of Sardis, circa 160 AD, we find anti-Jewish comments. They appear again in Tertullian (ca. 200) and Hippolytus (ca. 220). And they become explicit and harsh in Gregory of Nyssa, Chrysostom, and Jerome, around 375.

All the while, the Christian “cult” spread throughout the Empire. By the late 200s it reached into the upper echelons of Roman society. In 313, Emperor Constantine himself converted. And in 380, Theodosius made Christianity the official state religion. Victory was assured. Having been eaten away from the insides, the great Roman Empire was now on its last legs. And indeed, it fractured and collapsed just 15 years later, in 395. With that, the hated Romans disappeared from Palestine. The goal was achieved. Paul won in the end. And he continues to win to this day.

An Old Story, Still Unknown

This, then, is the likely origin of Christianity. Obviously we can’t know for certain, but such an account does accord with the facts, and does so better than any alternative. Something happened in those early decades of the first century, but it certainly was not the coming of the Son of God and his miraculous story — all of which are completely unsubstantiated. The Christian story was a first-century construction, a fable, a hoax, that eventually gained traction as literal truth. The known origins of the fable lie in the Jewish community, and they furthermore had every motive to concoct such a thing. In the end, it served them well.

As radical and shocking as this alternate account may seem, it has been around, in various forms, for many years. Already by 1769, Baron d’Holbach’s Ecce Homo argued for the fictional nature of Christianity. Another early writer to deconstruct the traditional story was German theologian David Strauss, whose work Das Leben Jesu (‘The Life of Jesus,’ 1835) challenged the divinity of Christ. The arguments came to a head in the work of Nietzsche (On the Genealogy of Morals and Antichrist, both circa 1888) and Albert Schweitzer (Quest of the Historical Jesus, 1906).

Nietzsche’s critique is particularly incisive. For him, the victory of Christian values over the far superior Greco-Roman values was an utter tragedy for Western civilization. In a sense, we have yet to recover. Paul and his band of “little ultra-Jews” (Antichrist, sec. 44) were ultimately able to defeat the Romans, and to bring their servile Judeo-Christian moral system to power in Rome itself. This is proven by the fact that Rome, the former center of the civilized world, became the global head of this new religion — a religion steeped in Jews. Nietzsche is brutally explicit:

Just think of who it is that people bow down to today in Rome itself, as the personification of all the highest values — and not only in Rome, but in almost half the earth, everywhere people have become merely tame or want to become tame — in front of three Jews, as we know, and one Jewess (Jesus of Nazareth, the fisherman Peter, the carpet-maker Paul, and the mother of the aforementioned Jesus, named Mary). This is very remarkable: without doubt, Rome has been conquered. (Genealogy, I.16)

In worshipping the Jew, and in accepting the Jewish lie, the Christian becomes a virtual Jew; in fact, he becomes more Jewish than the Jews themselves:

In Christianity all of Judaism, a several-century-old Jewish preparatory training and technique of the most serious kind, attains its ultimate mastery as the art of lying in a holy manner. The Christian, the ultima ratio of the lie, is the Jew once more — even three times a Jew. (Antichrist, sec. 44)

“I don’t care about all that,” says the apologist, now grasping for straws. “No one can really know what happened back then. And in any case, Jesus’ life and teachings give us a wonderful guide for an ethical life. His story just makes me feel good.” Really? Does it really not matter that we have, not ‘a little’ evidence for Jesus, not ‘conflicting’ evidence, but rather no evidence at all? Does the obvious plausibility of it being a Jewish lie not matter? Can it really lead to good outcomes and a noble life, if you live according to a lie? Is the factual truth or falsehood of the Christian story really irrelevant?

“And how could it be that millions of people were fooled into believing a lie, for so many years?” But of course, humanity has been fooled on many occasions. For centuries, we believed that the material world was composed of just four elements: fire, air, water, and earth. For centuries, we believed that the stars were attached to a gigantic celestial sphere that rotated around the Earth. For centuries, we believed in, and burned, witches. We believed in all manner of ghosts, goblins, spirits, fairies, and demons. Mythology is very powerful, especially one like Christianity with such a potent carrot and stick. But if all those other beliefs are now accepted as false, why not the Christian myth?

Finally: “If this alternate account is so plausible, how come we don’t read about it in school, or hear it discussed in the media?” This is hardly surprising. It’s no wonder that we don’t hear much about this version of events. Christians are obviously too embarrassed to examine such inconvenient facts, and in any case are, in recent years, all too anxious to appease their Jewish brethren. Jews certainly aren’t going to bring it up; as “artful liars” (Hitler) and “great masters of the lie” (Schopenhauer), it makes them look mighty bad. Academia is too Jewish and too Politically Correct to mess with such a touchy subject. And the corporate world sees no profit in it. Better to let sleeping Christians lie.

Any rational and objective person must come to just one conclusion: that Christianity is a Jewish hoax, conceived to demoralize and cripple the hated Gentile masses, as a way of getting even with Aryan Rome. It has no basis in fact, and no contemporaneous evidence; it is illogical and indeed idiotic (“God sent himself down here, and then killed himself, because he loves us”); and it keeps White and Gentile masses absorbed in a fairy-tale world until the day they die.

Christians! Wake up! Your lives are a fraud. Paul and his fellow Jews pulled a colossal hoax on you, and present-day Jews are only too happy to perpetuate this fraud. And you pay the price, every single day.

Here is one link for you to begin your studies (you never will will but here it is) https://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/lbob/lbob29.htm You have to understand there is no way to know an original from a copy. Paper wore out and everything had to be written and copied by hand.This was done by Roman scribes and later Disciples and monks and other powers that emerged such as the Byzantine Empire. Another key fact you need to understand is the TRANSLATION. Each word has been translated from Ancient Hebrew to Modern Hebrew to Greek to Old English to Modern English. Even the King James Bible has words which do not mean what people think they mean. For example “dogs”. Dogs are spoken about in a disparaging way. The word is a slang for Sodomites.… Read more »

Hello Jack. The letters of Herod and Pilate are notorious forgeries (among thousands of others, including not only written documents but also such beauties as the actual spear “that pierced Jesus’ ribs” and actual “vials of Mary’s breast milk”), as Dr. Revilo Oliver and other scholars have shown, concocted by pious liars centuries after they were supposedly written and loaded with errors in language and gross anachronisms. There was a time (please forgive me; I was thirteen years old) when I would have grasped at straws like that to “prove” my Christian faith. But I grew up. The Bible can only impose on most of us, I think, because we were told at a very vulnerable age — early childhood — by our parents, whom we naturally revered as our… Read more »

Oh Jack, you are still clearly in the fog of Christianity. You don’t need to look outside of the bible to be convinced that it is untrue. I, instead should be praying for you. The NT has nothing against race mixing as long as the two are joined by the yoke of Christianity. That is dangerous. A religion that is beneficial to our people should be against race-mixing as a precept. Maybe not the top priority but, it should at least be STRONGLY opposed. The closest thing to being against “racemixing” would be possibly contained in the OT (which let’s face it, most Christians don’t even read closely) which is for the JEWS and explains that they should not mix with other societies, look closer and you’ll see that only… Read more »

Your comment is far too long. If I responded it would take hours of typing. You don’t have the study to make these assumptions about scripture. I would suggest you seek this out against a professional and get their interpretation. The NT does NOT openly condone race mixing. This is where the modern church, who is also allowing faggotry into the church, gets it wrong. Again I think you need help. Your hate against Jews has caused you to see conspiracy where it does not exist. The Pharisee Jews were the enemies of Christ and have done nothing but try to destroy Christ ever since. One need not look farther than in Kosovo and Serbia, where I am now, where UN “peacekeeping” troops were ordered not to interfere when Muslims… Read more »

Really? It only took me about 10 minutes to type the comment…hmm. I figure all the citations and stuff were slowing me down, probably a 5 minute read at best for anyone competent.

I can tell you didn’t read it since you aren’t addressing anything that I said, and you went off topic with some UN drama. We’re not on Stormfront, and I’m not trying to win Christians who can’t be persuaded to put their race before their faith. If you can’t be bothered to read and respond to my comment I guess that’s all there is to say.

Who let the rabbi in here? This kind of absurd loyalty and inability to reason is pathetic and, unfortunately, looks to be the perfect poison pill to naive whites. Shame on you, Jack, for being a common naive moron that thinks he truly gets it. Take your prayers to a BLM rally—you’re no use to your people.

Yes you are correct. We should reject God and his Son Jesus and all the Angels and beings – because the message happened to come through the Jews. Again your hate has blinded you to rejecting the Bible and substituting a Skyrim fantasy. If the Pagan “gods” were any more legit you would have records from those periods attesting to it which could be proven through history and archeology – but you don’t. That’s even less of a source than the Bible which you reject. Again you are blinded by your hate. Hate is a real emotion and it will affect your logic Hate is not required to be a race realist. I don’t care what location the word of God came though – it had to come through some… Read more »

Jack, watch the Zeitgeist film on Youtube and get back to us. What this article fails to mention is that Jesus was plagiarised from other cultures and actually anchored in astrology. Astrology being a supremely important field of study during the agrarian age or any age for that matter. Funny how our sun is completely dismissed as the single most powerful force that can change climate today. Coincidently people worship a ‘sun of man’. Our sun is going down into a solar minimum, something you wont hear about on MSM and the plan is to cull many of the sheep, just thought I’d give you a heads up, Jack. For your namesake, you should want to eat at the table of giants and know your true origins.

This one of the finest articles ever published by National Vanguard. We Europeans are a spiritual people. We know there is more to life than getting and eating. And we are a loving people. No other people can quite compare to us when it comes to concern for the lives of our fellow Earth creatures; movements for kindness to animals, vegetarianism, abolishment of slavery, protection of the environment, etc., are often nearly 100% European even in areas where Europeans are less than 50% of the population. These qualities of loving kindness, caring, nobility, and higher spirituality were noticed by our enemies, the Jews, you may be sure. The Jews, as NV writer Andrew Hamilton has expressed so well, are creatures of great, almost supernatural empathy — though utterly devoid of… Read more »

Absolutely correct.
For the Jew, it is mere survival instinct. For us it is nature to the point that our compassion for others is killing us.
It is time to turn our compassion onto ourselves; it is time to love ourselves so fervently and unapologetically that we will destroy anyone and anything that would jeopardize even the most trivial of our comforts.
It is time for a new frame of reference.
It is time to love ourselves above all else—especially above a foreign mythological deity.
The abrahamic god, though he never actually existed, is dead.
Our god is us and we are our god.

Even though the writer promised to be brief and then was not, I read through anyway. I am a far-right conservative Roman Catholic for whom only the Latin Mass will do. So I am the very guy this writer is trying to reach. In answer I will say that I am utterly opposed to the Jewish takeover of out virtuous “Christian-inspired” society and see no objection in Catholicism to kicking some Jewish ass. And for this reason, I see not the Jews as the big problem but the white guys working for the Jews just to get a paycheck as the biggest problem, and without understanding that the Jews took their livelihood away before offering the paycheck. That is because white man just wants to work and create and the… Read more »

Dear Patrick, Catholics make their own rules and follow their own traditions. When it suits the Catholics they will follow the guidance of their leaders over the scriptures themselves. However, what you mustn’t forget is that the bible is a Jewish creation. It was taken unto the Gentiles as their own, however it IS from an alien people and mindset to Aryans. That hasn’t changed and it won’t. I could show you several bible passages that would be “against you kicking Jewish ass.” 18 If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God;[a] for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” 20 No, “if your enemies are hungry, feed… Read more »

As a Cathocuck, you are 95% Pagan with a thin Romano-Jewish veneer. Traditions, rites, ‘saints’, holidays, etc. are almost ALL of Pagan origin, they just renamed them, falsified the background stories and moved their locations from central and northern Europe to the Mediterranean – or even further afield.
Virtually every church ever built in Europe (until very recently, anyway) stands on ground originally sacred to Pagans.
Protescuckism is the attempt to remove all the Pagan elements and return Cuckstianity to its 100% Jewish roots – which is why Protescuck countries – at least in Europe – are among the least religious in the world. Swedes, Scots, northern Germans, Dutch aren’t Jews and can therefore not identify with a Jewish death cult.

Your not going to bring back Paganism as a religion of white nationalists. Paganism is Polytheistic.It doesn’t hold up to anything whatsoever. It’s a Skyrim Fantasy that people are not willing to adapt.

Should I pray to Thor if I’m a Viking? Or Neptune if I’m a Greek? Total nonsense. The Bible is the word of the one true God. That it came through the Jews is Gods will for reasons unknown to us. And matters not.

But it does matter, Jack! The passage that Grimork quoted about the olive tree: Paul is saying, “You Gentiles are here in the Church by mistake. It was God’s will that Jews should be here, but they did not step up, so God is left with you! Don’t let it go to your head!”

That is insulting. That right there is enough for me to reject the whole shebang. Paul was a nutcase anyway, going into trances in which he went up into the heavens, putting himself above those who supposedly were with his Christ, and thinking that he was almost equal to his Christ.

Evidently, you have no idea what Paganism is.
It is based on the cycles of nature – the seasons, weather, the life cycles of plants and animals (including humans), the movement of celestial bodies – in other words: reality.
Everything that matters to a farming, herding warrior culture, which is what our ancestors were and what we still should be.
Pagan deities are not fantasy people who live in the sky but aspects of nature.
The Bible is basically a Spielberg movie script (from the early years…) and exactly the same bunch of lies that brought us countless wars and genocides, the Holohoax, and, most recently, the Kung Flu/Vaxxx hoax.
A work of fiction. Wake up.

What gauge are you using to decide what is “total nonsense” and what is “the word of the one true God”…?? The Bible is the #16 interpretation from 15 earlier stories of the same nature. The ancient Hebrews took Egyptian mythology and remade it in their own image. Jesus (“the son” – “the light of the world”) came directly from Horus (“the sun” – “the light of the world”). The name Israel comes from three Egyptian and Phoenician gods: Isis, Ra, and El … Is-Ra-El. The word Amen comes from the ancient Egyptian phrase “Amon-Ra” … which means “To the god Ra.” When I was a child, I went to Sunday school on a few occasions, although my parents were not religious.

It necer ceases to amaze me how people -Christcucks, Tradcucks, even some Civicucks – can see Jewish conspiracies under every pebble and behind every grass blade, but are completely, utterly (and often willfully) blind to this one.
Even the Holohoax – the second biggest Jewish conspiracy in history – pales in comparison. So do The Pill and Convid1984.

At the moment of Jesus’ death, “the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus’ resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.” (Matt. 27 51-53) This curious story only appears in Matthew. No one else—pagan, Jewish or Christian, mentions this remarkable event. Paul apparently did not know about it because he said that Jesus was the “first fruit” of the Resurrection at the end-time (2,000 years ago!). Well, Paul, these people were ahead of Jesus by about two or three days! (Incidently, Paul puts his “vision” of… Read more »

I don’t want to argue about theology or apologetics, but in the Bible the word “first” doesn’t mean the first in chronological order. Instead, it describes the preexistence and preeminence of Jesus Christ. Six times the Lord Jesus is declared to be the first-born of God (see Romans 8:29; Colossians 1:15, 18; Hebrews 1:6; 12:23; Revelation 1:5). These passages declare the preexistence, the sovereignty, and the redemption that Christ offers. Thus, the phrase “first-born of all creation” proclaims Christ’s preeminence. As the eternal Son of God, He created the universe. He is the Ruler of creation! Obviously, Jesus Christ was not the first person born or the first one resurrected. The word “first” describes His position and title. As I said, I don’t want to argue, but only explain the use of… Read more »

A very interesting article. I was baptized a Catholic but abandoned the religion decades ago. It made no sense to me, especially as a PhD candidate studying Organometallic Chemistry.
 
One of the Catholic myths talks of mortal sin and suicide. If a Catholic commits suicide they will never be allowed to enter the kingdom of heaven, and will remain in purgatory for all eternity. What better way to control a slave than by offering such a carrot? Tell them that they will live in eternal happiness in Heaven if they accept the Christian myth, but if they try to get to heaven too quickly (suicide) they will be denied everlasting peace. Only a Jew could come concoct this type of spiritual paradox!

If, that’s in fact what they’re doing, it’s obviously because they believe in it. However, just because people believe in something doesn’t make it true or right. The Jews, just like our politicians play musical chairs on issues, also change religions when it suits them as to better play the Goyim against each other. They pretend to despise Christianity when in fact it suits their purposes. They pretend that they’re monotheists but there has been evidence that in the past Jews had multiple Gods. Such as Asherah, at one time the consort of Yahweh, who is mentioned in the Bible later multiple times as “Idolatry” worship after her purpose no longer suited the views of the priesthood. https://archive.archaeology.org/0503/abstracts/israel.htmlAsherah is arguably the most important goddess in the Canaanite pantheon.

That said, Walt Hampton may have found some of those nuggets of truth within the Guardian’s words. As for Walt’s views on Jesus, i know he’s definitely not a worshipper of those products of the Jewish imagination and that’s a good thing.

She was the wife of Jesus. She was the “beloved disciple”, and the first person to see him after his (supposed) resurrection, don’t forget. The wedding at Cana, where Christ supposedly performed his first “miracle” – he was the guest of honour. It was his wedding. They married, and had a child.

Everything changed for me when I started investigating the ancient churches that traced their lineage right back to the first century, not some deranged monk from the 1500’s.

It a very compelling case that Jesus (as a son of god) never existed; and if he did the story is a fabric interwoven with composite characters that make up the so-called Jesus.

  The problem with Christians lies in their ignorance of first century, religious Judaism. To understand the true story of Jesus, one must know the details of the Jews’ ancient religion, history and law.   First off, Jesus took no issue with Roman rule as illustrated by his response to the Temple authority’s tricky question about paying tribute to Caesar. Pilate, the Roman procurator, exonerated Jesus at his trial saying, “I find no fault with this man.” Three times Pilate tried to spare Jesus and yet the prieisst kept hounding him unitl finally, in utter exaspertion, he told the priests “Have it your way, I wash my hands of the affair.” The fact is Jesus had nothing to do with Rome or Christianity.

Great article – I take issue though with the intent and motive you project onto the Jews in order to make a conspiracy of the new blossoming religion. As you demand historical precision of the gospels – might you not ask how others say Rome of the Flavians and Josephus conspired to write the gospels. Please see: Christianity invented by the Flavian Roman Emperors https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/ip3/postflaviana.org.ico https://postflaviana.org/introduction-flavian-origins-theory-christianity/ Rome had an equally vested interest in subduing the Jewish resistance. They too might have concocted the whole story if you use hypothesis for history. But as to the scripture in this regard you can clearly see that Isaiah 2:2 and following speaks hundreds of years before of a subjugation of Jewish elite and loss of land. It continues that nations will worship God YHWH under… Read more »
