The Bible writers were all screwed up!
Christians hardly bother to find out how was it that Jesus was found guilty of a crime worthy of death by crucifixion! Pontius Pilate was a fair and good guy. If he ever existed, he was manipulated by the Bible writers! God the Father in Heaven Planned to have God the Son Jesus Christ nailed to a cross “BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD” before Adam and Eve were ever created! God had to tamper with Jesus’ trial to make sure that Jesus is found guilty so he can be crucified, otherwise nobody would be saved! In a nutshell, that is the “creation story.” Jesus knew all about it, that is why he begged his Daddy up in the Sky to “Pass the Cup.” Unlike the Muslim self bombers, Jesus was terrified at the thought of dying for anybody!
Mark 14:64 - "And they all condemned him to be guilty of death."
Matthew 26:66 - "They answered and said, he is guilty of death."
Job 9:24 (NIV) When a land* (*Israel) falls into the hands of the wicked* (*Roman Empire?), he* (*God) blindfolds its judges. If it is not he, then who is it?* (*certainly not SATAN like some other Bible writers assert)
Jeremiah 4:10 - Then I said, "Ah, Sovereign LORD, how completely you have deceived this people and Jerusalem by saying, 'You will have peace,' when the sword is at our throats."
WARNING: This Bible God, not SATAN, but God can be very treacherous! Christianity helped him evolve into a “loving God” simply by ignoring ALL the smutty crap about him! Like the announcement at his birth that he is the hope of Israel and of those who expect the liberation of Jerusalem.
Ezekiel 14:9 (KJV) And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel* (*Christians claim that the Bible God can break all rules of decency and fairness, only because he is God!).
Jesus Christ complained to Pontius Pilate that his Father in Heaven was responsible for delivering him to trial, NOT JUDAS ISCARIOT!
John 19:11 (NIV) Jesus answered, "You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above* (*from God). THEREFORE THE ONE WHO HANDED ME OVER TO YOU IS GUILTY OF A GREATER SIN."
Only God the Father has the power to hand Jesus Christ to be nailed to Holy Cross by Pontius Pilate, NOT JUDAS ISCARIOT! BTW, God the FATHER had the ONLY BEGOTTEN God the Son Jesus Christ slated for the Holy Cross BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD! God’s “intelligent design” included a flaw that only the slaughter of God the Son Jesus Christ can cure him at being pissed for allowing Eve to eat a fruit from the wrong tree! Christians hardly read the Bible so they lack reasoning power to figure out!)
1 Peter 1:19-20 (KJV) But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot* (*but full of Roman soldiers’ spit!): who verily was foreordained before* (*read it again! “WHO VERILY WAS FOREORDAINED BEFORE”) THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD!
Poor Judas Iscariot! He was caught in the middle! Jesus said that it would be better off for Judas to have been aborted! If so, he would be in Heaven now with Jesus and all the Christians of the right brand. Another good abortion opportunity gone to waste for the Christians who don’t believe in abortion! How will they respond to God?
Matthew 26:24 (KJV) The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! IT HAD BEEN GOOD FOR THAT MAN IF HE HAD NOT BEEN BORN* (*The Bible writers have Jesus wishing that Judas would have been aborted, after being conceived because only fetuses can be wished not to be born!).
Judas was about the most trustworthy guy in town... He was very well intentioned. The Bible writers set him up to be a "betrayer.” Jesus never gave any DIRECT word to Judas TO STOP WHAT HE WAS GOING TO DO! The connotation in the Bible is that the Jesus gang was planning a revolt against the Roman Empire to make good the promise made by Jesus that he was going to be their King. Jesus asked his Holy Apostles to sell their coats and buy a weapon! Most likely Jesus sent Judas to tell the authorities were to find him for the fight. In the queer skirmish to arrest Jesus a soldier had an ear slashed, by accident of course! Jesus had to look for it in the dirt and in the dark to glue it back together to the soldier's side of the head that had the ear missing! This was a bloody revolt! The battalion of cut throat soldiers that came to arrest Jesus was composed of heavily armed soldiers that were standing back in awe and wonder, and in total amazement waiting for Jesus to fix the ear of the wounded soldier! Of course, it was a miracle that had to be done to fulfill some sort of an odd ball prophecy! The whole story is so silly that only religious morons can believe it! Most Christians today don’t like to read the Bible! They pay their favorite preachers in tithes and offerings to do it for them!
THIS WEEK (1/27/06-pg.15)
Judas has gotten a bum rap, said Ben Macintyre in the London Times. Vatican scholars said last week they were considering absolving Judas of blame for Jesus' death, after 2000 years of near universal condemnation. It is about time! The story of Judas as the disciple-turned-traitor simply doesn't "add up." After all, since Jesus was so famous, why should the Romans need an insider to betray him to them? They wouldn't. In fact, that very word "betray" is a mistranslation. In the original Greek manuscripts of the Bible, the word "paradidomi," which means the more neutral to "hand over" or "deliver," is used often, including to describe Judas' "handing over" of Jesus to the Romans. When it got translated into Latin, though, the word was rendered "betray" only in the sentences that refer to Judas actions. Also, Judas was made the fall guy around the end of the 1st century A.D., right when the early Christian Church was competing with Judaism and "needed a Jewish hate figure." The first Christian writings, by St. Paul, don't mention Judas at all. It isn't until the Gospel of John, written some 70 years after Christ's death, that Judas is handed the blame. The evidence is clear. Judas was simply "an innocent victim of religious persecution, racial prejudice," and "willful mistranslation."
The funny thing is that Judas in Hebrew is the same word for Jew, Judah, and Jude. It basically means "Praise be God."
