What christmas means to me.

     Christmas is the time when parents teach their children it is okay to lie!! Yes, parents relentlessly tell their children to not lie, but then one day they admit Santa Claus is not real. The whole north pole thing is a big lie which was perpetrated on the hapless kids, along with the Easter bunny and so forth. These lies are to prepare the children for the next, much bigger lie that is to come.

Now a kid hears that he has to worship "Jesus", because December 25th is his birthday. So the child rightfully expects another lie, and that is exactly what he gets. This person named Jesus is supposed to be ~2000 years old, but the history man says that name didn't exist back then. And it is certainly not a Hebrew name. So who's birthday is it? Yes, I believe there is a Messiyah. And, no, 'Jesus' is not the modern-day version of His Name. 'Jesus' is neither a proper transcription transliteration nor a translation. 'Jesus' is a different name which was carefully chosen by the catholic translators to lead us away from the real Messiyah. Many people claim Jesus comes from Zeus, king of the Greek gods. They say when you worship Jesus you are worshipping a Greek god, who is a demon! Mexicans pronounce Jesus like a friendly greeting: Hey, Zeus! Not: GEEzuz; like so many American televangelists. Yahushua contains YHWH. Jesus contains Zeus. The name Jesus is a deception, no matter how much the christians jump up and down.

Furthermore, the title 'christ' actually comes from the god Krishna. The English 'christ' comes from the Greek 'Christus' or 'Kristos', which comes from the Sanskrit 'Krishna', which is the name of the Hindu god Krishna. All three words mean: anointed one. The scriptures were written in Hebrew, and His title was MessiYah, which means: anointed of Yahwah. Since Messiah means 'anointed one', and Krishna means 'anointed one', they must have thought it would be fine to use Krishna's name (Greek 'christos'; Romanized 'christ') in the bible instead of MessiYah? And why not, since they had already replaced the name of Yahushua with the fake: Jesus. In the Old Testament they used the real Romanized English version of Yahushua, which is: Joshua. In the New Testament they used a different name: Jesus.

If christ is indeed derived (poorly transliterated) from Krishna (the name of that blue dude), then it is not a title. It is a NAME. And therefore it is most definitely NOT okay to use it regarding our Savior: Yahushua Messiyah. Messiyah is a title, it applies to Yahushua and many others. 'Christ' should be translated back to 'Messiyah'.

Whether those are true or not, the pronunciation of the Messiyah's Name begins with a "Yah..." sound, the same as Yahwah. Without that sound, the meaning and the power of the name is lost ('Yahushua' means 'Yahwah is Salvation'). It is an insult to change someone's name without their permission. The Messiyah was Hebrew, son of David. He definitely had a Hebrew name. Reading at the end of Revelation, it says we are to not change any of the words in the scripture. And yet the two most important words of all - the Names of Yahwah and Yahushua - have been completely removed from the scriptures and replaced with different words. What are the meanings of those new words? They do not have the divine meanings the real Names have. When the christians worship "Jesus Christ", are they actually worshipping Zeus and Krishna?? It would seem so.

Probably even worse is the idea that christians worship 'Christ' - as opposed to worshipping Yahwah. Even if the title is innocent (not derived from Krishna), they have forgotten the teaching of the man they claim to worship. The Messiyah said to worship Yahwah. But they don't. Part of the change came when they decided to be different from the Jews, and worship in their own way. They claimed that since the Jews killed the Messiyah, then obviously they were bad - and so the christians did not want anything to do with Jewishness. Well, yes, the Jews were bad. They did not follow scripture - but that is not a sufficient reason for the rest of the world to reject scripture. Even if it was, if you want to worship the Messiyah, the first thing you should do is learn what He taught you -> the Name of the Creator. Worship Yahwah! Reject gods! Reject idols! Do not sin! But the christians can't bring themselves up to that. They won't even celebrate the sabbath given to Adam and Eve and all of humanity because they call it the: Jewish Sabbath.

The bible does not give Messiyah's date of birth. This is because celebrating birthdays is what astrologers do, and astrology is strictly forbidden in scripture. True believers do not 'celebrate' birthdays. Astrology came from the great religion of Nimrod. It is believed by many that December 25th was Nimrod's birthday. He can be found in the scriptural history as the first worldwide bad man after Noah's time. The catholic bible implies that he was just a hunter, no big deal. Sounds like he's hunting for food. But supposedly he was also hunting human souls away from Yahwah. In Hebrew Nimrod means: he rebelled. He was the builder of the Tower of Babel. The founder of the great pagan religion which is today called christianity, catholicism, and babylon (much information is given about Nimrod in the Book of Jasher, which you will find on my menu. Also note that he is sometimes called Amraphel, like in Genesis 14:1. He is also called Nicolaus, Saint Nick, and Santa Claus).

The catholics celebrate the ancient pagan holydays, but they pretend they are celebrating holydays to the Creator. They ignore the holydays which are explicitly spelled out in scripture (even in their own modified version of the scripture, which they call the 'holy bible'). They pretend to worship the Creator and the Savior, but they won't even speak or teach their Names. Instead, they call out the titles of Satan. And a catholic church is full of the idols forbidden by scriptures. They even have them hanging on the walls! Even worse, on their holydays (xmas and Easter) they put lots of these idols out in their yards in front of their houses. Yes, you have your baby Jesus idols, your three wise men statues, your santa claus idols, your decorated trees cut from the forest, your eggs and rabbits at spring rebirth, and so forth. All of which is condemned in their bible.

Yeshayah 8:19 says: should a people not seek to their Father? On behalf of the living should they seek to the dead? Still I watched my dying mother cling tenaciously to her little statue (idol) of 'Saint Joseph', because the catholics taught her that it/he could help her somehow. The catholics teach you to pray to dead men, instead of to our Creator and our Messiyah. The christians cling to their idols. They have the silly things hanging on the walls in the church. You are supposed to go in, kneel down, bow your head, clasp your hands, and pray to these idols!

The people believe the preachers who claim they believe in the Creator, but they actually believe in Satan. Therefore the people are deceived into worshipping Satan. For example, the Roman Catholic religion officially believes in evolution, although they pretend to believe in creation. So catholics are deceived into belonging to an evolutionist organization - a cult! At judgment time the people will say that it is not their fault, it is the fault of the preachers. But since the truth is eventually known to anyone who searches for it, those people will go right to hell with Satan. That is what they get for not doing their own thinking and studying.

Is that why the bible says the whole world is deceived into worshipping Satan? People think they are being good enough, but in fact they are sinners, so they get punished in the end. You think you're worshipping the Creator, but you are actually worshipping Satan! The priests lie to the people, and lead them astray. It is okay to tell lies in Satan's religion. It is the responsibility of each person to study, and to learn the truth.

What is the best way to tell a lie? First, tell the truth 1,000 times. Then, when they believe in your honesty, lie. Give them two opposing choices to believe in, and tell them those are the only choices. Tell the truth about everything else. You see, this is what satan did to you. When you read the bible, nearly everything is true. So you believe it. Then you are given two choices, evolution or God. You choose. But you don't know there's a third choice - Yahwah. And that is the correct choice. But, if you study the bible well enough, you will realize that no religion actually believes in it, they lie to you to get you to join their cult. These two choices are the reason scripture says: Do not turn to the right hand, nor the left.

What happens is that lots of people start out with religion. They study and learn, and they realize the religions are all false. No religion believes what they preach, so religion is rejected, and the only other known choice is accepted - evolution. Conversely, many people start out with evolution. When they realize it is a farse, they reject it. And they then accept what they think is the only option - God. But satan has hidden the truth - there is a third option. Scripture says only a very few people will find the narrow road down the middle, the road to Yahwah.

Too bad the Israelites and christians took the Name and title of the Creator out of the scriptures and replaced it with "The LORD God" (adonai el). 'God' is not a name, it is a title. Did you know that? 'El' is what the Canaanites called their deity. Moshe told the Israelites when they went into the promised land to kill every Canaanite and destroy their religion. But instead the Israelites adopted parts of the Canaanite religion. The Israelites quit calling on the Name of the Heavenly Father, the Creator. They put the Canaanite titles into the scripture, and began calling on the devil.

And of course every version of the bible contains numerous verses condemning the worship of the god known as Ba'al. So if you look up Ba'al, you find out that the English version of that name is "Lord". Ba'al is satan, as you can probably tell. The Israelites used their word 'Adonai' to replace the Name of Yahwah in the scriptures. Adonai means 'Lord', and previously was never applied to the Creator as a title. Modern bibles are full of verses like: "Praise the name of the Lord!" What is the name of "the Lord"? Ba'al! The scriptures are full of verses condemning Ba'al (like in the 10 commandments).

Everybody who calls on The Lord God is really worshipping Satan! Did you wonder why Yahwah allowed the Israelites to be conquered and carried away into captivity? It is because they no longer worshipped Him. They were praying instead to Adonai El, the Canaanite deity. The Israelites pretended they were praying to Yahwah, but, apparently, that is not good enough for Yahwah.

      By changing the names in the book, Satan has tricked you into
      worshipping Satan. The devil has deceived the whole world.

So the new testament states there is only ONE Name that a person can be saved by. The old testament says the same thing, and it is the same name. Yet the catholics have removed that Name from their bible and replaced it with a completely unrelated word: Jesus Christ. And all of christianity has followed suit. Don't they want us to know His real Name? Or rather, WHY don't they want us to know His real Name? Since there is only one Name that can save us, why do catholics pray to so many dead "saints", and to Jesus, and to Lord God?

According to the catholic bible, and the real scriptures, the sabbath of the Creator is the seventh day of the week. It starts Friday at nightfall and ends Saturday at nightfall (the evening and the morning were the first day, ... first there was darkness, and then there was light). The Messiyah celebrated the seventh day of the week as the sabbath. If that was the wrong day He would've told us. The Jews have their own calendar, which they scrupulously keep, regardless of what the rest of the world does. Therefore we know that Saturday was and still is the seventh day.

The catholics even teach that the seventh day (they call it Saturn-day) IS the correct Sabbath! The scriptures say Messiyah died the afternoon before a sabbath, and the catholics call that: good Friday. And the scriptures say He was raised the day after a sabbath, and the catholics teach that was on: Easter Sunday. They claim to be a follower of Yahushua Messiyah, but they don't even bother teaching His Name - they've re-named Him: Jesus Christ (without permission). Worse, they ignore His teachings and commandments. Christianity is about worshipping Him who they call christ, and ignoring what He taught.

They have also rejected the Sabbath He observed and taught, instead they observe Nimrod's sun-god-day. Again, the catholics have admitted many times they are the ones who changed the sabbath day, without permission. Obviously they tell a lie when they claim to follow Yahshua's example. They reject the Ten Commandments they claim to believe in. How much more obvious does it need to be?? (In order for Him to have been in the grave three days and three nights, it is obvious that one of the scriptures refers to the weekly Sabbath, and one of them refers to a High Sabbath. There were two sabbath days while He was in the grave, the first day of Unleavened Bread, then the weekly: see my Resurrection Day page.)

Is it a sin to make fun of Yahwah's Word? How about all those christians who reject Yahwah's sabbath, and demand that Yahwah accept the sabbath day which the christians want? And since the christians have defined the new sabbath day which Yahwah has to accept, that means the christians get to define HOW to honor that day - no longer do they have to abide by Yahwah's sabbath rules!! One recent Saturday morning I needed some peace and quiet, so I went and parked on a street which is in between two christian churches, Roman Catholic on one side, Methodist on the other. What could be quieter than a christian church on the sabbath, right? They are all out partying or shopping or whatever. And it was quiet, not a single person was at either church that morning. That was until the lawnmower guy showed up! Silly christians, none of them was in their church on the sabbath, except the gardener who was working...

Any person who belongs to a religion should seriously study the practices of that religion. Does the religion practice what it preaches? For example, the catholics claim to believe in the teachings of the bible, but they refuse to practice those teachings. Such as, catholics regularly eat pork, shrimp, lobster, mushrooms, and other forbidden foods. They celebrate ancient pagan holydays instead of the biblical holydays. Do you want to belong to a religion that is lying to you? Because these people follow the teachings of the pope instead of the scriptures, they all belong to a cult. Christians accept the parts of the bible they want to accept, then they deliberately mis-interpret the parts they can get away with, and they ignore the rest.

It is truly amazing how many people there are who claim to be christians, but who have never read the bible they claim to believe in!! And I don't mean verses or chapters here and there. I mean to actually read the whole book from the first page to the last page. I have done it fourteen times, from beginning to end. Many people read little parts of it, and take them out of context, and decide that they know what is what. Too bad for them. But what is worse, many people don't even bother to read and understand a little! They just decide to "believe in" whatever other humans tell them.

Even though the Catholics redacted the true scriptures as much as they could, their own Holy Bible still condemns them. That is why they do not like to read it, and that is why they never encouraged me to read it. They give a few quotes here and there, then tell you to shut up and close the book while they tell you what they want you to believe.

If you are not worshipping the Creator YHWH, then you are worshipping Satan (directly or indirectly). Everybody who worships Jesus Christ or The Lord God, or who celebrates the sabbath on Sunday, is a catholic of some form. If you celebrate christmas and Easter, you are a catholic. Catholics (all christians) refuse to do what the scriptures say, instead they happily practice an ancient pagan religion which is condemned in their own bible!!!

Xmas sux. Buncha hypocrites acting like they're cool; buncha christians all full of themselves, thinking it is okay for them to sin as much as they like and they'll go to heaven anyways; buncha fools trying to be like the fools next to them; buncha idiots! Christianity is a fake religion full of lies and paganisms. Nothing but a cult. The whole stand-sit-kneel-sing routine should make that obvious.

Ya, they tell you garbage like: It is okay to refer to Yahushua as Yeshua or Y'shua, because that's what the Jews do, and because He knows who you are talking to. Do your homework, what does 'blasphemy' mean? It does not mean taking His Name in vain (as in: God damn). It means: to bring Yahwah's Name to nothing, to make Yahwah's Name worthless. So when you remove Yahwah's Name from Yahushua by calling Him Yeshua or Y'shua, you have committed blasphemy. Remember that one of the most important things the Messiyah did was to come to earth in the Name of the Father. When you refuse to say Yahwah's Name you have committed blasphemy, especially if you call Him 'God' instead.

And so I don't do xmas anymore. Belief in xmas, Easter, etc are all traditions of men. Why do all christians reject the teachings of the bible? They are lied to by their religions, and they don't bother to READ the bible and learn from what it tells them.

When I was a believer in the Lord God and in Jesus Christ the world loved me. I had a good job and a career, money, friends, and so forth. That is because when you pray to God you are praying to 'the God of this world', who is satan. And satan helped me build up worldly things. But not now. As soon as I rejected God, and believed in Yahwah and Yahushua, the world hated me. That is because whenever someone sees me or hears my name, the God and demons who possess that person start screaming in his/her head. The person does not know why s/he hates me, just that they do. And so now the world in general has turned against me.

Yahchanan 7:7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hates, because I testify of it, that its works are evil. 15:18 If the world hates you, you know it hated me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

What it means to me, is, everybody who celebrates xmas will go to hell.

Why does the pope go around in a bullet-proof car? Why does he have body-guards? Is he afraid his god can't protect him from a little bullet? Is he afraid his god WON'T protect him? Does he know he'll die, and go to hell? Is he afraid of the billions of people he has lied to?

Catholics believe the pope is in direct communication with God. He is supposed to be the best man alive. So why was it that the pope condemned Galileo Galilei? Galileo was the first man to scientifically observe the universe with a telescope. He determined the earth is NOT the unmovable center of the universe, as all the previous popes had asserted it is. He said that the earth orbits the sun. The pope said he was wrong, condemned him, and placed him under arrest.

How could all those popes be so stupid?? Surely the pope's God knew the truth, and would have stopped the pope from making a complete fool of himself and the catholic religion - if the pope was really in communication with the Creator. Why did the catholics take over 350 years to admit that they made a mistake? Why don't they want humanity to know the truth about the universe? Are they trying to control you by keeping you ignorant?

These same catholics also killed Giordano Bruno by burning him to death! His scientific ideas did not agree with their religious ideas. He said the sun is just another star, like all the rest. He said the Earth is not the center of the universe. They keep people under control through intimidation, terror, superstition, and ignorance.

By the way, the ancient Greeks (Eratosthenes and Aristarchus) knew 2300 years ago the earth orbits the sun, and the moon orbits the earth. They knew all were spheres. They 'calculated' the circumference of the earth very accurately, and the circumference and distance to the moon very well. They knew the sun was enormous, and very far away, but it turns out to be even farther and therefore larger than they thought. So where did the later "flat earth" concept come from? Since the catholics use ignorance and superstition to keep the common folk in line, they greatly resent any attempt to educate the general public.

Yahshua Messiyah said we would all do miracles like He did. Yahshua showed us The Way of Yahwah, and said if we will follow it, we will all do miracles. Yahshua's disciples did miracles like Yahshua did. They healed all manner of disease, brought people to life, and so forth. I've been alive sixty years. I have never heard of any pope doing any miracle. I have never heard of any priest doing miracles. Why have the popes, rabbis, ministers, etc, etc, for the last 1950 years all failed to do miracles!? They ARE NOT followers of Yahshua and Yahwah!! They are followers of The Lord God.

Billions of people think they're going to go to heaven and live with God. What they don't realize, is; if they end up with God, they will be in the place we call hell, the Lake of Fire. Because God is not the Creator of the universe - Yahwah is. Satan is the God of this world (2Corinthians 4:4, John 12:31 and 16:11, Nazarenes 74:4, Essenes: Satan the God of this world, etc).

A cult is defined as a group of people who believe in and follow a human person's teachings regarding religion/cosmology (where we came from, etc). A religion is defined as what you believe in regarding cosmology based on faith. A cult is a group of people who do not believe in and follow the scriptures. The difference is that the scriptures have proven themselves by unerringly predicting the future (that is something no human can do), and they were written by dozens of people over thousands of years.

Now, as to the catholics, and all christianity: They do not believe in and follow the scriptures. They believe in and follow the pope (who is a human). If the pope believed in and followed the scriptures, then I would say that is not a cult. But he doesn't, and no christian group on this planet believes in and follows the scripture. Therefore, all christians are cult members! It is true!

Most people would define cult as belief in a single person and/or his teachings. In this case, Messianism does not count because you are not believing in the Messiyah only, but in thousands of years of prophecy which seems unerring, His miracles, and His resurrection. However, Catholicism is still a cult because it is not the religion described in the Bible. It is a religion formed by Simon Magus and Paul, and cemented by the Roman emperor Constantine. They knew the best way to bring together all the different types of people was with religion. Most were what the Jew called pagan. They consolidated the different pagan practices and gave them names from the new religion (Messianics, the Way) that was spreading around. They threw in a little of everything to make everyone happy. Since the Catholic religion does not follow Bible teachings, it is a devotion to one man, Constantine. Since he died, the popes have assumed control of the cult.

Messiyah said His words and the words of the prophets will not change. Catholics change constantly, which is a hallmark of pagan religions. Many branches of Catholic now exist, like: Orthodox, Protestant, Roman, Baptist, Mormon, Presbyterian, etc. All still follow the basic pagan traditions, like: sabbath on Sunday, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, birthdays, having an immortal soul inside your body which separates at death, and so on. To prove Catholic is a cult, I only need to address one issue: the sabbath.

The sabbath is defined on the first page of the Bible. This is long before any Jew existed. It applies to everyone, Israelite and Gentile. Yahwah's Sabbath has always and will always be the seventh day of the week. There is no such thing as a Jewish Sabbath and a Christian Sabbath. It is either Yahwah's Sabbath or it is the pagan celebration to the sun-god day. Constantine took the pagan celebration to the sun-god day and gave it a 'Christian' theme. If your religion celebrates Sunday, it is not Yahwah's Sabbath. Yahwah said His Sabbath day is a sign to all peoples who worship the true Creator.

Christians often say things like: God changed the sabbath to Sunday. Or: Jesus changed the sabbath to Sunday. But, NO! It was the Roman Catholics who insist the sabbath is Sunday. To justify this they refer to Acts 20:7 And upon the Lord's Day, when we were gathered together to break bread. However, there is nothing in this verse nor in its context to indicate that anyone thought the first day of the week is a sabbath day. And there is absolutely nothing anywhere in the scriptures to indicate the sabbath was changed, or that it is even possible to change it. It is far more realistic to translate Acts 20:7 as: And upon the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread.

That verse was translated to 'Lord's Day' by those biased translators, who mis-lead and deceive you. The Lord is the evil god known as Ba'al, and yes, his sabbath day is Sun-day, the first day of the week. All the evidence you need is right there! See, on a Sabbath Day you eat day-old bread because you are not allowed to work. You prepare your Sabbath food on the Preparation Day, the sixth day of the week. Then, on the first day of the week the bread is now two days old, but you can work again. So you bake up some fresh bread, and everyone gets together and makes joy at breaking and eating fresh bread. It is a ritual.

Now, if the christians want to commemorate every Sunday the rising of Yahushua from the dead, in addition to the sabbath day, that is fine with me. But for them to say Sunday is Yahushua's or Yahwah's sabbath day is a lie, plain and simple. They violate two of the ten commandments at the same time. The Sabbath is still, and always will be, the seventh day of the week. If Yahwah wanted us to change the sabbath from the seventh day to the first day, He would be making Himself a liar, because of: Malachi 3:6 For I, Yahwah, do not change. And if Messiyah Yahushua had wanted to change the sabbath day, there was no one in Israel who would listen to Him. He would've immediately been known as a fraud. He would have had to make a huge issue of it, and would have had to justify His action. It would be all over the four gospels, not some vague reference in Acts. Catholic humans changed the sabbath to the first day, and decided to ignore the seventh day sabbath which Yahwah gave to Adam, Eve, and all of their children - including us.

The Jews have kept track of the weeks for thousands of years with their own calendar, so we can be sure the seventh day is still the seventh day. When Messiyah went around telling everyone everything, not once did He say the Sabbath was on the wrong day. He did it on Saturday. Never did He say anyone would be allowed to change it. Indeed, He said He was here to enforce the old law, not to change it. To break the Law is to sin. If you choose to keep the pagan sabbath you are not keeping Yahwah's Law. You are a cult member. Yes, you! If you think the Jews are the only ones required to keep Yahwah's sabbath, please read Yeshayah (Isaiah) 56. It is obvious we should ALL keep Yahwah's sabbath, not the Sunday thing.
1John 3:4-10 Whoever commits sin breaks the law, because to sin is to break the Law [of Yahwah]...Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him...He who sins is of the devil...Whoever is born of Yahwah does not sin...In this the children of Yahwah and the children of the Devil are manifest...

Ezekiel 18:4-24 ...The soul who sins will die...if he walks in my statutes...he will surely live...the soul who sins will die...

Hebrews 6:23 For the wages of sin is death...

1John 2:4 He who says "I know him", and does not keep his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

Genesis 2:3 Then Yahwah blessed the seventh day and sanctified it...

Exodus 20:8-10 Remember the Sabbath day...the seventh day is the Sabbath...

Ezekiel 20:19-20 ...walk in My statutes...hallow my Sabbaths, and they will be a sign...
The entire christian xmas holiday is filled with fallacies, lies, deceptions, traditions, and sin. Consider the 'Three Kings' which are shown in every nativity scene. This is scriptural nonsense! It is christian 'traditions of men'.

Luke informs us that some Israelite shepherds visited the nativity scene. Matthew tells us that some number of magi (magicians/ astrologers/ sorcerers) visited the Messiyah some time after his birth and brought presents. Matthew does not say they were wise men, he does not say they were kings, he does not say how many of them there were, he does not say their names, he does not say they travelled on camels, he does say they visited in a house, not a manger/cave. Most likely they were Zoroastrian priests. The christians claim to know the names of 'the three wise men', yet as you travel around the world their names change from place to place.

So it is a weird thing that astrology and sorcery are condemned by the scripture - yet the Jews did not recognize the birth of the Messiyah, but the magicians and astrologers did!

Herod had all the children under two years of age killed, not all the new-born children. This indicates the Messiyah was about one year or so old at the time he was visited by the magi, not a new-born. Indeed, the magi saw his sign in the sky when he was born, and then they endeavored to travel the long distance to Israel. This journey would've taken planning-time and travel-time. And they would've most likely waited till spring to undertake a long voyage. So if the "star" was the extremely close conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in 2BC (the king and queen of heaven), it is reasonable to figure that it might have been a year from the conjunction to the visit. They were not at the nativity.

Indeed, Matthew 2:1-12 describes the visit of the Magi, and in the New International Version it starts with the word: AFTER. After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea. Then Matthew says: Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. The star must have appeared at the SAME TIME of the birth of the Messiyah, and the magi were at home in the east just then. That is how Herod knew to kill all the kids under two years of age. Furthermore, Matthew says: On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Miriam. This shows that they were no longer in the manger where He was born, but were now in a house, perhaps a house belonging to one of Yahusef's relatives, since they were from that area (that is the reason Yahusef had to take his family there to pay taxes and be counted in the census). Some versions of the scripture say: they saw the young child with Miriam his mother. That is a young child, not a new-born babe. Only the Book of James, which the catholics do not consider scriptural canon, says "some wise men from the east" (no number given) went to the "cave" in which Yahshua was born, after being conceived by Yahwah's Spirit (not Yahusef).

We are warned (e.g. Jeremiah 10:2) to NOT learn the ways of the pagans, yet that is EXACTLY what all christians are doing! There is not a christian religion on this planet who does what they are told. Therefore, it should be easy for any reasonable person to see that all christians are cult members - they believe in and practice the words and traditions of men, not what the scripture teaches. All christians are pagans.

If you are a christian, I suggest that you OPEN YOUR EYES!! Judge my words by what the scripture says, NOT by what your priest says.

Start with the ten commandments, how many christians obey this one: Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. They are all jumping up and down on Sunday, the day after the sabbath. That should be your first clue.

If you are a christian, then you belong to a cult. You believe in a cult which is pretending to follow the scriptures. They keep thumping on their bibles as they tell you what they want you to believe in. They show you one or two verses, then tell you to close your bible while they tell you what it all means. They can certainly talk the talk. But they are possessed by satan, who must be giving it his best go. But if you would actually read and attempt to understand the scriptures, then you would realize that christianity is a cult, and the 'holy bible' was faked.

One christian says: God willed that there be some way we could escape the consequences of our sins. That way is Jesus Christ.

How slick is that lie? I think we WILL all be punished for each of our sins. There is NO ESCAPE. The punishment is death, and so we will all die. Then we will all be resurrected and judged. One of the biggest lies of all time was given in Genesis: You will not surely die. Christianity teaches this same lie today! They say you will NOT be punished, as long as you simply 'believe in' Jesus Christ. There is no scriptural basis for these teachings. Here is what the scripture actually does teach:
Revelation 20:12-13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it. Death and the grave delivered up the dead which were in them. And they were judged, every man, according to their works.
This quote from christianity is a classic: To go to Heaven, God only requires a simple child-like faith in THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. This single sentence is screaming at me. Good grief, this is one of the slickest lies I have ever heard. Heaven?? Don't they read the scriptures? We would live on earth! The true believers do not go to heaven, they go to earth. The English word: God? It comes from El, the pagan Canaanite deity which pre-dated Abraham. They expect you to give your soul to: Lord Jesus Christ?? But wouldn't that be: Baal Zeus Krishna?! They say all you need is faith - they ignore the idea that you must obey the law. By saying all you need is faith, they convince you that you do not need to read and obey the scriptures. They say: just believe what WE tell you, and you can go to heaven forever.

For example, if you see Hoshea 2:16 It will be at that day: says Yahwah; that you will call me Ishi, and will not call me Baali anymore. 17 For I will take away the names of the Baalim out of her mouth, and they will no more be mentioned by their name. Here Yahwah states that people are calling Him by the name of a pagan deity. Of course, we don't address Him as: Baal. But some do address Him as: Lord. Lord is: Baal. And He definitely said He does not like that!

The scriptures used to say to believe in Yahushua the Messiyah, but the catholics changed all that. And worse, they are insisting that you can continue sinning, and you will still be "saved" (go to heaven for eternity). How wishy-washy is that? They admit that you are not allowed to sin, and in the next sentence they say it is okay if you do sin. It should be plain that they are telling a lie.

A wise man once said: People never question their own beliefs, so don't try to change them. Indeed, most people don't even know WHY they believe in the things they do. And they certainly can't justify their beliefs, because very few people bother to gather enough knowledge to make an informed decision. The vast majority of people make their decisions based on superstition! Yes, that's true! Just ask someone to justify his or her religious beliefs, and look to see if they use scripture, facts, or opinions.

So all I'm doing is telling you what I believe, based on 60 years of gathering knowledge. Since christianity causes people to have a warm, fuzzy feeling inside, they assume it must be right. After all, billions of other people believe in it, so it has to be right. Right? Even though the bible claims that the way into eternal salvation is very narrow, and only a very few people will make it ("very few" excludes the billions of christians in the world). Please consider my words carefully. I will now try to provide enough evidence for you to take seriously:

Exodus 20:16 Do not lie.

Numbers 32:23 Behold, you sinned against Yahwah, and be sure your sin will find you out.

Acts 4:12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other Name under heaven given among men by which we can be saved.

John 5:22 For the Father judges no man, but committed all judgment to the Son.

Revelation 12:9 The great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world.

Revelation 17:3 I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast. 5 And on her forehead a name was written: Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Of The Abominations Of The Earth. 9 The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. 18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.
  -- Of course, the catholic city of Rome actually sits on seven named hills!
  -- Rome is christianity, the religion which rules over most of the kings of the world.
  -- And the scarlet beast is satan, compare Revelation 12:3 & 12:9.

Catholics say it is okay to sin every day. You then say some prayers at the end of the month, and all is forgiven (so what happens if you die after you sin and before you go to confessional?). I suppose that is fine if you are following satan's religion, but their own bible says that you must not sin at all, ever! Yahushua saves from death, not from the law. There is not a christian in this world who obeys the laws of Yahwah. They refuse. They even refuse to do what the Messiyah commanded them! That is why they HAVE to insist to you that it is okay to sin!! They justify their sins by saying it is impossible to not sin.

By the time we are old enough to discern right and wrong, we are already sinners. But we can have those sins erased. After our old sins are erased, we must not sin - at all. Yahushua's life proves that a human can live without sinning. He set the example. When He said "Follow Me" He meant His sinless example, not His actual footsteps. From Adam onwards mankind has been told to not sin. Yahwah expects us to not sin. Moshe and the prophets reiterated that many times. Yahushua expects us to not sin. Yahushua's death saves us from the eternal 'second death', if we believe in Him. It does this by forgiving us of our past sins, and making us clean. But if you commit sin after that, then off to hell you go. Yahushua's death does not save you from the final judgment, where you are judged by your works.

Yahchanan (John) 5:14 See, you are made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.

Yahchanan (John) 8:11 Neither do I condemn you; go, and sin no more.

Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin willfully after we receive the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins.

2Peter 1:9 For he who lacks these things is blind, seeing only what is near, having forgotten the cleansing from his old sins.

Romans 3:20 because by the works of the law will no flesh be justified in His sight; for through the law comes the knowledge of sin. 23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of Yahwah; 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Mashiyach Yahushua: 25 whom Yahwah set forth to be a propitiation, through faith, in His blood, to show His righteousness because of the passing over of the sins done aforetime,

I John 3:4 for sin is the transgression [breaking] of the Law. 10 In this the children of Yahwah are manifest, and the children of the devil. Whosoever does not do righteousness is not of Yahwah, neither he who does not love his brother. 22 and whatsoever we ask we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. 23 And this is His commandment, that we should believe in the Name of His Son Yahushua the Messiyah, and love one another, even as He gave us commandment. 24 And he that keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And hereby we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit which He gave us.

John 8:34 Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin.

Ezekiel 18:4 The soul who sins will die.

Ezekiel 18:27 he will save his soul alive.

Romans 6:15 shall we sin, because we are not under law? Yahwah forbid!

Romans 6:23 The wages of sin is death.

1Yahchanan 2:1 My little children, these things I write to you that you may not sin. 6 he who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk even as He walked. 3:3 And everyone who has this hope set on Him purifies himself, even as He is pure. 4 Everyone who does sin does also lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. 5 And you know that He was manifested to take away sins; and in Him is no sin. 6 Whosoever abides in Him does not sin: whosoever sins has not seen Him, neither knows Him. 7 My little children, let no man lead you astray: he who does righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous: 8 he who does sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning.

Matthew 7:21 Not everyone who says to me: Lord, Lord; will enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 19:17 He said to him: Why do you ask Me concerning that which is good? One there is who is good. If you would enter into life, keep the commandments.

Deuteronomy 6:17 You will diligently keep the commandments of Yahwah your Father, and His testimonies, and His statutes, which He commanded you.

Deuteronomy 8:6 You will keep the commandments of Yahwah your Father, to walk in His ways, and to fear Him. 11 Beware lest you forget Yahwah your Father, in not keeping His commandments, His ordinances, and His statutes,

Deuteronomy 11:1 Therefore you will love Yahwah your Father, and keep His charge, His statutes, His ordinances, and His commandments, always.

Yahushua 23:6 Therefore be you very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the Law of Moshe, that you not turn aside from there to the right hand or to the left;

Luke 6:46 And why do you call Me: Lord, Lord; and not do the things I say?

James 1:20-23 But be you doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass.

1Yahchanan 5:2 Hereby we know we love the children of Yahwah, when we love Yahwah and DO His commandments. 3 For this is the love of Yahwah, that we keep His commandments, and His commandments are not grievous.

Leviticus 19:37 You will observe all my statutes, and all my ordinances, and DO THEM. I am Yahwah.

Romans 11:22 Behold then the goodness and severity of Yahwah. Toward those who fell, severity. But toward you, Yahwah's goodness, if you continue in His goodness: otherwise you also will be cut off.

2Peter 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that you look for these things, give diligence that you may be found in peace, without spot and blameless in His sight. 17 You therefore, beloved, knowing these things beforehand, beware, unless being carried away with the error of the wicked, you fall from your own steadfastness.

Remember the Ten Commandments? One of them says: You shall not lie. It does not say: you can lie sometimes - if you feel like it. It does not say: since you are a human, it is impossible to not lie. It does not say: you can lie sometimes, as long as you tell the truth most of the time. It does not say: go ahead and lie, you will still go to heaven. It does not say: you shall 'try to' not lie. It does not say: it is okay to lie to someone if you think they lied to you first. It does not say: it is okay to tell a 'white' lie. It does not say: it is okay to pretend. It does not say: it is okay to lie to prevent hurting someone's feelings. It does not say: it is okay to lie if you feel obligated somehow. NO! Yahwah knew you were a human when He told you: DO NOT LIE. Since He created you, He knows you are capable of not lying.

So, if you are a christian, tell me even one of the ten commandments that men cannot possibly obey. Personally, I find it easy to go through life without lying. Actually, it is easier than lying! Because when I was a liar I had to clog my brain trying to remember all those lies and scenarios, so that I would not be caught later in the lie. When a christian tells you it is impossible to not lie, ask him which scripture says that? Most likely they will start babbling about the "new covenant" which they say gives you permission to lie and sin. So what about it?

Hebrews 8:6 But now He has obtained a ministry the more excellent, by so much as He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which is enacted upon better promises. 7 For if that first covenant was faultless, then would no place have been sought for a second.
They claim that after many generations YHWH had a better idea, having learned from His mistakes, so He came up with a new covenant. Where does the scripture say that? Yahwah knew the end before the beginning. He never changes. He doesn't make mistakes. He has never "had a better idea" because the old idea didn't work out. That is catholic propaganda! They try to reduce Yahwah to the status of a human parent raising children, learning as they go. There is no fault with the first covenant - the only fault is with the people who refuse to obey it.
Hebrews 8:8 For finding fault with them, He said: Behold, the days come; says Yahwah; I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. 9 Not according to the covenant I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to lead them forth out of the land of Egypt. They did not continue in my covenant, and I did not regard them: says Yahwah.
Verse 8 says: For finding fault with them. The "them" refers to the Israelites, who would not keep the covenant. He did not find fault with the agreement. Verse 9 shows it was the people who were a problem, not the agreement.
Hebrews 8:10 This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days: says Yahwah. I will put my laws into their mind, and I will also write them on their heart. I will be to them a Father, and they will be to me a people.
This has not happened yet. It is what happens after the final judgment. That should be obvious when you continue reading:
Hebrews 8:11 They will not teach every man his fellow-citizen, and every man his brother, saying: Know Yahwah. For all will know Me, from the least to the greatest of them.
Nowadays very few people know Him, therefore, this has not come true yet. Until after the last judgment, He will not forget your sins. If you are tempted to commit a sin even once, even the smallest sin, then you should acknowledge that Yahwah has not written any laws into your mind and heart. You are still possessed by satan. That should be obvious! It is not Yahwah who tempts you to sin.
Hebrews 8:12 For I will be merciful to their iniquities, and their sins I will remember no more. 13 In that He said: a new covenant; He made the first old. But that which is becoming old and waxes aged is ready to vanish away.
The old covenant is still in existence - it has NOT vanished away yet. It is: ready to vanish. These statements were made after Yahushua died and rose, and after the apostles were filled with Yahwah's Spirit - yet the first covenant was still in effect. The first covenant was a permanent agreement! Speaking of the last days, Yeshayah mentioned the original covenant:
Isaiah 24:4 The earth mourns and fades away, the world mourns and fades away, and the haughty people of the earth languish. 5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants of it, because they transgress the Laws, changed the ordinance, and broke the everlasting covenant. 6 Because of this, the curse [Jesus] devours the earth, and those who dwell therein are desolate. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.
Yeremyah also shows that the "new covenant" begins after Yahshua's return to earth: Starting with 31:27 Yahwah is talking about the return of both Israel and Judah to their lands, and this event has not happened yet.
Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come: says Yahwah; I will make a new covenant with the house of Yisrayah, and with the house of Yahudah. 32 Not according to the covenant I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my which covenant they broke, although I was a husband to them: says Yahwah. 33 But this is the covenant I will make with the house of Yisrayah after those days: says Yahwah. I will put my torah [Law] in their inward parts, and I will write it in their heart. I will be their Father, and they will be my people. 34 They will not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying: Know Yahwah. For they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them: says Yahwah. I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.
Until Judgment Day Yahwah still remembers our sins! After that is the new covenant. The only difference between the old covenant and the new covenant is that we will be forced to obey the old covenant Laws.

It is not the covenant which was at fault! Since it was made by Yahwah, it cannot be at fault! It was the Israelites who were at fault by breaking the covenant and making it void. Only the Messiyah is in the second covenant so far. The rest of us will pay for our sins with our deaths.

You are expected to OBEY the ten commandments! (and the other laws too) Read them again. Here, I'll make it easy for you: 1 You shall not 2 You shall not 3 You shall not 4 Remember 5 Honor 6 You shall not 7 You shall not 8 You shall not 9 You shall not 10 You shall not. Where does it say it is impossible for you to obey? Where does it say: You shall 'try to' not lie? What it says to me is that you are expected to obey all ten, all the time, 100%. No exceptions. The ten commandments are still active, and they still convict you of sin (even if you are 'born again'). After the final judgment, after heaven and earth have passed away, that's when the new covenant will be made with us, like as it is already made with the Messiyah. When there is no more sin.

The christian says that the new covenant was needed because no man could abide by the law. I thought it was because no man "would" abide by the law. They are trying to tell you Yahwah purposely gave us a set of laws which there was no possibility of obeying. They are saying Yahwah is evil! That He judges us by laws we cannot possibly obey. That sounds an awful lot like blasphemy to me.

Yahwah is perfect. He does not make faulty covenants. He does not make mistakes. I am sure He does not give us laws that are impossible to follow:
Psalms 19:7 The Law of Yahwah is perfect, converting the soul

Malachi 3:6 For I, Yahwah, do not change
Yahushua did not fulfill the law for you - that is something you must do for yourself. Every man is judged for his own sins, not for anyone else's sins (or Yahushua's lack thereof). He came to fulfill prophecy. He did not do away with the Law. It is still active, and you are still subject to it. Not one little bit of the law will change until the earth we live on is gone, and it will go away when Yahwah comes to the last "White Throne" Judgment. Any decent reading of the Book of Revelation will convince you the prophecy is not yet completed. There are still many steps to go before the old covenant (law/testament) is ended, and the new covenant starts. In Matthew Yahushua says: till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Here is when "heaven and earth pass away", prophecy is fulfilled, and the old covenant (law) ends:
Revelation 20:11 I saw a great white throne, and Him who sat upon it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away, and there was found no place for them.

Enoch 91B:16 The first heaven will depart and pass away, and a new heaven will appear,

2Peter 3:7 but the heavens that now are, and the earth, by the same word are stored up for fire, being reserved against the day of judgment and destruction of unrighteous men. 10 But the day of Yahwah will come as a thief; in the which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fervent heat, and the earth and the works that are therein will be burned up. 11 Seeing that these things are thus all to be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy living and righteousness, 12 looking for and earnestly desiring the coming of the day of Yahwah, by reason of which the heavens being on fire will be dissolved, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 But, according to His promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.
It looks to me like it would be a good idea to obey the commandments. The catholic concept that it is impossible to NOT sin is destroyed by the scriptures themselves. Who should you believe, the humans, or, the scriptures? Clearly, the scriptures expect you to be capable of NOT sinning. Yahwah expects you to NOT SIN! If you sin, you are of the devil, and will go to hell with the devil. You are required to know the law and obey it. Like the sabbath day, for example:

The Sunday sabbath is the ancient pagan holyday. The catholics ignore the seventh-day sabbath practiced and taught by the Savior, and choose Nimrod's pagan day instead. They have a yearly feast holyday to the ancient fertility goddess Easter. That day is determined by astrology every year. They celebrate Nimrod's birthday every year, but they say it's okay because they've put a "religious" theme on it (christmas). Yet christmas used to be illegal in America (when Boston was the main city) because they considered it to be against scripture. They knew it was a pagan holyday. They also burned "witches" and had a big tea party, so they were adamant about their beliefs. Indeed, in many ways the entire Roman Catholic religion was illegal in America. It is what the colonists were trying to get away from!
Matthew 5:17-18 The Messiah said: Do not think I came to destroy the law or the prophets. I did not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tiny thing will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. [like the law which says no pork, and no shrimp or lobster, you are still supposed to obey that law, and all of the other laws]

Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until Yahchanan, from that time the evangel of the kingdom of Yahwah is preached, and every man enters violently into it. 17 But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than for one tittle of the law to fall.

Matthew 15:7-9 [describes modern-day catholics well:] Hypocrites! Well did Yeshayah prophesy of you, saying: These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but have removed their heart far from Me. In vain do they worship Me, teaching the commandments of men as doctrines.

Mark 7:6 He said to them: Well did Yeshayah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written; This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. 7 In vain do they worship Me, teaching as their doctrines the precepts of men. 8 You leave the commandment of Yahwah, and hold fast the tradition of men. 9 And He said to them: Full well do you reject the commandment of Yahwah, that you may keep your tradition. 13 making void the word of Yahwah by your tradition, which you have delivered.

Isaiah 29:13 Yahwah said: Forasmuch as this people draw near to me, and with their mouth and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment of men which was taught them.

Whatever is not in the original scriptures is the teachings (commandments, traditions) of men. For example, the Talmud is the teachings of men. The Talmud not only contradicts the scriptures in many places, it contradicts itself. The 'Holy Bible' is the teachings of men, since it is different from the original scriptures. Do not believe the teachings of men, unless they teach exactly the same thing as the scripture (in which case it is the teaching of Yahwah).
Yeremyah 10:2 Do not learn the religious practices of the Gentile nations, and do not be deceived by the signs of heaven [astrology], though the heathen are deceived by them. 3 For the religious customs of the peoples are futile! For one cuts a [xmas] tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. 4 They decorate it with silver and gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, so that it will not topple.
A christmas tree, condemned, in the Old Testament! -- NO, christmas has NEVER been about the birth of 'Jesus' - looks like it has always been about the birth of Nimrod the Sun God. Legend has it that December 25th has always been celebrated as the birthday of Nimrod - it is definitely NOT the day the Messiyah was born.

The Ten Commandments tell us to remember the sabbath day and keep it holy. Yet that is the one day of the week the catholics refuse to even pretend to keep holy. As a child I was brought up in a catholic environment. I went to catholic school five days a week, I went to catholic church on Sunday, I lived in a catholic home, and I had catholic relatives. Guess what? Saturday is the one day of the week where they deliberately avoid thinking about 'God'! Friday night you are supposed to go out and party all night, and all through Saturday into Saturday night. The sabbath of Yahwah is reduced to "party time". You are encouraged to go out and commit sin - the more you sin the better! Go ahead and sin, you are already forgiven for it! From Sunday morning through Friday afternoon you are supposed to be thinking of their God. The christians all do exactly the opposite of what they see in their own "holy bible".

The christians pretend to believe in the bible to give themselves an air of legitimacy. But they do not lay down the law. That is because they all want to be sinners, therefore they claim they won't be judged for their sins. But without the law, there are only opinions. That way all they do is endlessly bicker about it with each other, about what is right or wrong. Since everyone has a different opinion, who is to say what is right? Satan wins because all they do is jump up and down endlessly, and continue sinning.

They spend six days telling you it is impossible to not sin. And then on the seventh day of the week - the sabbath - they encourage you to sin! The christians preach exactly the opposite of what their own bible says. And the people willingly go for it. They want someone to say that it is okay if you sin - you will still go to heaven. The priests say what the people want to hear.

That's why I don't do xmas anymore. I found out it is a pagan holiday, and it is non-biblical on many levels. In fact I found out all of christianity is no more than an elaborate cult. It is all banned by the bible they say they believe in. Easter is particularly banned, as is worship of the Lord and Christ! If you search on the internet you will finds gobs of good information regarding the 'origins of christmas'. You can also look through the links page on this website.

Just because you think you are worshipping the Creator, doesn't mean you are. If you really want to worship the Creator, you will do lots of research to determine what the Creator requires of you. You will ignore the teachings of men. It is up to you to do the right thing with your life. You can't blame somebody else for your sins. If you say: the priest deceived me!; that is your own fault. You should have studied the scriptures if you really believed. And if you had studied, you would not have been deceived.

Isayah 9:16 For those who lead this people cause them to err, and those who are led of them are destroyed.
It seems to me as if almost everyone would rather read ABOUT the scriptures, than to actually READ the scriptures. But that opens the door for deceit. If you are not reading the scriptures yourself, then how will you know if (when) someone lies to you? Do not obey the voice of men (me included) - except to read the scriptures yourself to see if what a person or god tells you is true, or not true. Too many people just choose to believe the words of a man - like the pope for example. Maybe that way, they think they can blame someone else for their sins? They can say it is not their fault they are sinners? It is not their fault they are too lazy to open the book and read it?

A cult is defined as a group of people who believe in and follow a human person's teachings regarding cosmology (where we came from, etc). The true religion is defined as a group of people who believe in and follow the scriptures. The difference is that the scriptures have proven themselves by unerringly predicting the future (that is something no human can do). The difference is that the scriptures were supported by the Messiyah, who did miracles like no other human ever has, and who is the only human in history who rose up and left his grave empty. So following and believing in the scriptures seems a reasonable thing to do.

Now, as to the catholics, and all christianity: they do NOT believe in nor follow the scriptures. They don't even believe in their modified scriptures, called: the holy bible. They believe in and follow the pope. If the pope believed in and followed the scriptures, then I would say that is the true religion. But he doesn't, and no christian group on this planet completely believes in and follows the scripture. Therefore, all christians are cult members! It is true.

Christianity is a cult which is pretending to be the true religion.

The "message of Christianity" is exactly opposite to the message of Yahwah's scriptures!

Once I had an extended conversation with a christian, who came to the realisation he could not justify his beliefs. So rather than open his eyes, he actually declared I am the antichrist. Yes, in person! Well, I am not anti-christ, per se: ---> I am anti-christian. I crush christianity (though they are usually blind to the fact). And there is nothing they can do about it, because they do not believe in nor follow their own bible which they keep waving around.

The christians present you with their opinions, and I am presenting you with the scriptures. I do not have an "opinion" to present, so it is nothing like that. I only tell you to believe in and follow the scriptures if you want, but don't join a cult. The christians keep jumping up and down, without justification. That is because they believe in the words of men. They are a cult.

In Genesis Chapter 3 it says: 5 for Yahwah does know that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes will be opened, and you will be as a god, knowing good and evil. This does not promise that they would BE gods, just that they would recognize good and evil the way a god does. And so who are gods? They are created beings, part of this universe created by Yahwah. Gods go by many titles, such as elohim, devils, demons, gods, angels, malaks, spirits, aliens from another planet, anunnaki, and so forth. Obviously some of them are good (like: Gabriyah) and some are bad (like: Lucifer). The good ones do not allow you to worship them, they say to worship Yahwah.

What it all means to me, is, everybody who celebrates christmas will go to hell.

Now, some people say that they don't go for all that religious stuff. They just celebrate christmas because it's a fun thing to do, with presents and so forth. They don't believe in Jesus, they just like the season and the "goodwill towards men" stuff. That really doesn't matter!! They are still celebrating and practicing an ancient pagan holyday. It is the same as a Mormon or a Protestant saying they aren't catholic -- they might SAY they are not a catholic, but in reality: yes - they are catholics whether they believe it or not. ALL christians are a form of catholic, itself derived from the pagan religion of Nimrod.

There is a book out now called: The Secret. From what I know of it, this is a horrible book! Sure, you are taught lots of great stuff, like to be nice to your fellow man, and to have a good attitude, and so forth. And I am certainly for that. This earth definitely needs to have better people living on it. I say you should decide for yourself what you want, and believe in yourself, and go do it (as long as you don't inflict upon other people). Henry Ford said: What you can conceive, and believe, you can achieve.

But then the book gets real wishy-washy. It teaches that instead of believing in yourself and working for what you want, you should pray to "the universe" and expect "the universe" to give you what you want. Uh, if you pray to the universe, and your prayer is answered, who answered it? A Genie? The universe is an inanimate object, it cannot answer your prayer - it cannot give you things. So, since you were not praying to Yahwah, therefore you were praying to Satan or his demons. They answered your prayer! The DVD cover for the book actually has a picture of "the universe" looking down on you, ready to give you your desires. It looks like Satan! This is the same "universal consciousness" which the psychics and astrologers have been connected to all these years.

Regarding scriptural prophecy; many people say that they want specific dates and events named. By saying that, they are actually saying that there is no way they will believe the scriptures, no matter what they say. These people have chosen to disbelieve all of the prophecy that has already come true.

But for example, let's say that there was a prophecy that on Sept 11-01 the twin towers of New York will be destroyed. So when the event comes to pass, do they say: I believe!? --NO--. They say: That was a self-fulfilling prophecy. Since there are so many fanatics and assholes in the world, it is obvious one of them would make the prophecy come true. The only reason that the buildings were destroyed is because some moron got the idea from the scriptures and decided to do his 'duty'. Without the prophecy no one would have bothered to do the deed, and the towers would still be there.

So let's say that there is a prophecy which man can't fulfill. Say that: In September of 1850 a huge comet will crash into the moon (we now have the capacity to do this, hence, the old date). This comet crash will splash rocks all over, and for 10 months rocks will rain down on the earth, punishing mankind for his evil deeds. Half of the population of the world will be killed. So why isn't this kind of prophecy made? Simple, because man has a free will.

Scripture plainly says we can choose to do right, and then not suffer the consequences of sin. The specific actions of a free will cannot be predicted, only the probability of that action. The probability that a large group of people will eventually reach a certain state of sinfulness can be predicted with reasonable certainty (please study the Second Law Of Thermodynamics). So the prophet can say that ^sometime^ in the future mankind will be depraved, and therefore this is the punishment he will receive when he reaches that depravity. But to determine the actual date ahead of time means that man does not have a free will. He has a destiny which he can't escape. Which means that we would all be puppets, and therefore we would not be responsible for our sins.

Which goes back to the old argument. If you were the Creator, creating beings to share the universe with you, do you create them with free will - or as puppets or robots who do what you say? Would you want to be loved? Robots don't love you. They act like they do because that is how they are programmed. Without the capacity to turn against you, there is no real sharing, and no real love. If you give them the capacity to turn against you (free will) then almost certainly they will do it as a whole. There will always be some who do, the only questions are how many and how soon. A deeper discussion of the issue of evolution can be had HERE. Also, I have some notes on Genesis.

We are to worship and pray to Yahwah our Creator and Heavenly Father,

in the Name of Yahushua our Messiyah and Savior.

By their Names !!
