Anti-missionary claim: Your god-man Jesus is a myth who promoted paganism and idolatry

ANTI-MISSIONARY CLAIM:

Your god-man Jesus is a myth who promoted paganism and idolatry… and that became what’s known as CHRISTIANITY!

RESPONSE:

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to respond to such a ludicrous statement!  I start by stressing that every claim Y'shua made about himself and every claim the ORIGINAL AND REAL followers did in his name (not what got corrupted later into "Christianity") was derived from Tanakh. The enemy wants to confuse people - always has - and so he makes COUNTERFEITS that look like the truth but have just enough lie in them to lead people astray.  Satan is the father of lies, the prince and power of the world, and he has lied to us from the very beginning while appearing as a being of light. That's what "Lucifer" means--LIGHT BEARER.

Now, when the original Nazarenes interacted with the paganism of THEIR DAY, unlike the Roman Fathers who syncretized and synthesized it, they tried to bring people directly out of pagan belief to "come out of Babylon" as it were.  That is why Rav Shaul talks to the Athenians about their "UNKNOWN EL...”for what you say is unknown I proclaim to you...".  That is why you have the rulings in Acts 15 about Gentiles abstaining from food sacrificed to idols also.

So here is what I am trying to stress:  If the Nazarenes are condemning paganism (You believe Elohim is one you do well...for there is ONE FAITH, ONE IMMERSION, ONE ELOHIM, YHWH, by whom we all live...Y’shua said, "It is written, Worship YHWH and HIM ALONE SHALL YOU SERVE, etc.) WHY ON EARTH DO YOU THINK THE ORIGINAL BELIEFS FROM Y'SHUA WOULD BE WHAT CHRISTIANITY BECAME? Everything we know about Y'shua the man is that he was Torah observant! Same with Rav Shaul - and no one doubts he was real. In fact it is impossible to understand the New Testament without Torah.

Now, consider this:

1 Corinthians 10:18 Consider the people of Israel: Do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar? 19 Do I mean then that a sacrifice offered to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20 No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord's table and the table of demons. 22 Are we trying to arouse the Lord's jealousy? Are we stronger than he? 

1 Titus 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons….

Do you see what I am getting at?  Rav Shaul says that to worship "god men" as you anti-missionaries put it, is to worship DEMONS.  Again, you cannot drink from the cup of the Master and the cup of demons. You cannot serve YHWH and Mammon. So whatever the original faith of the Nazarenes was, it was NOT in a "god man."

    1. True! Many started doing this even in Y'shua's time - and they're still at it. Only today, we're being "killed" by their vicious words and barbs....
