They are like slaves who are still feeling the weight of their chains which they have thrown off after hard struggle. They are creatures who—in their grudge against the traditional "opium of the people"—cannot bear the music of the spheres.

I agree with that.

Jesus is accepted as a real historical figure by many scholars outside of Christianity.

"Christ" is a pagan deity that took about 300 years to create and is still a mutable mythology.

Much of that canon spends its time claiming the Hebrew god is more powerful than any of the alternatives.
It reads much like a script for a Tide commercial.

Nope.
You have 40,000 disagreeing cults all claiming the others are liars and frauds and damned to Hell.

They pick the scriptures that they are certain depict other believers as evil servants of a devil ... and their selves as holy servants of a holy god.

June does this ever so often.....think she has some supporting information, but in fact, it is really just a ruse to make herself look good.

I still can't understand how it took her so many decades to speak out against something she states as: "I never believed".

Remember - she's only been a "non-Christian" for only about 4 years, and IMO - appears to be limited in her "Agnostic" view, except for a couple fo books that contain quotes from others.

As you know, competent, non-believing scholars overwhelmingly hold that Jesus was an historical personage who was melded into the mythical Christ.

Doesn't make it so -- just highly probable.

Some Jews believe that the one god's title is Elohim, while others believe his name is ADONAI, et cetera ... and some even believe that the term G-D must be used as a show of respect.

But if you ask any Jew of the one-god dogma if there are multiple gods, I suggest they will say that it all pertains to one god, as they would never admit to being polytheists.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

Take your pick! Each group of Jews had their own title for their own image of a god. But unlike the Catholics, Muslims and Protestants, the gods at least DID have titles.

Of course they were WILD. And the strong ones such as the popes, kings, queens and emperors won out in the end, IF they were not disposed of their selves.
Religion always was a war of who had the most military power.
I suggest you keep in mind that in Constantine's era twenty emperors were assassinated in one century.
That is WHY he gave control to the Catholics in the hopes of religion becoming ONE system of belief.
As you can see ... his plan didn't work. The crazies are still at it today ... fighting over who the gods love and who the gods will reject.
I know that Constantine's goal was political- to unite the empire. He knew little theology. The first council would not have been swayed by him anyway. Most had been already tortured under the Diocletian persecution and had not wavered.Christianity was already in effect underground before Constantine.His move to end persecution let it grow exponentially.I still have difficulty with my Church making him a saint.I can express that to my Church and they will accept my freedom of thought. I still am checking your 20 Emperors assassinated statement.

No difference at all.

To most Christians, the word Christ and the word Jesus are interchangeable.

Note how this author uses the word "Christ" as meaning Jesus.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>

The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors … Christianity before Christ, by Kersey Graves … first published in 1875.

All History ignores Him.

The fact that Christ finds no place in the history of the era in which he lived,—that not one event of his life is recorded by anybody but his own interested and prejudiced biographers,—settles the conclusion, beyond cavil or criticism, that the godlike achievements ascribed to him are naught but fable or fiction.

Back in the day when the popes had all the say, you would have found your self burned at the stake as a heretic.

There was no freedom of thought, unless the thought was aligned to the pope in power. And if you call THAT freedom of thought, I suggest you are wrong.

Pardon me. It was a seventy-year period, not a one-hundred-year period.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>

From the book,“History of Christianity,” by Clyde L. Manschreck … comes the following.

When Constantine legalized Christianity, he expected it to unify the empire sorely needing unity. Before Diocletian, during a seventy-year period, twenty-three emperors ruled. Of that number twenty were assassinated, one fell battling the Goths, one died a prisoner of the Persians, and one perished from the plague.

Except for the reason of deception, why would Catholics take it upon their selves to change a holy name of a supposed savior.

You'll see the lies ... but only when you choose to see them.

I also believe I don't have a Christian soul or a Muslim soul, or any religion's "tagged" soul.
