Christians again prove many are unabashed enemies of the truth

After finally watching the Jesus Tomb documentary and the hour of critical look "debates" following it, I am left with the sad conclusion that a large percentage of Christians will always oppose the truth, regardless of how it is presented. It has been amazing to watch people who regularly oppose critical thought and science hypocritically assert that critical thought and science supports so-called "biblical evidence" in their efforts to debunk this archeological find and associated theories.

Reflect upon the fact that Christian leaders are howling about the truth of this archaeological find and associated theories, but are steadfastly and unabashedly opposed to having to prove the truth about the many dubious assertions and contradictions throughout the New Testament and Christianity. Many of these same people have the gall to complain about "theatrics" used to present these findings, as if Christianity has never turned a profit or stooped to even slicker and far more dubious methods pushing their stories and historical interpretations. It is rank hypocrisy for Christians to attack the presentation of this documentary as unbalanced when Christian history and current activities fall far short of what they are demanding in this situation. People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, because what goes around comes around.

Though I too have problems with the way this documentary and religion in general have been sold, for profit, I also think this information deserves a much closer examination and consideration than a simple knee-jerk defense of still unproven New Testament claims. Do Christians really think that the Creator of all knowledge and wisdom wants them to blindly oppose all newly discovered truths? Do they think the Creator of truth would want you to close your eyes to the truth? What do you think making the blind see again symbolizes? Or opening one's eyes to the truth? Isn't possible that Christians have long been "blinded" by deception and strong delusion?

Never forget that Christian leadership has never sought the truth about what really happened in ancient Israel, but instead used great evil and deception to impose their dogma and opinions on others over the centuries. Which primary characters in the Bible is this level of deception most often attributed to? What will it take for Christian leadership to finally submit to truth and justice?

After centuries of witch hunts, Inquisitions, genocide, crusades, child raping priests, the widespread persecution of others seeking to understand the truth, and a very long list of proven deception and fraud, how could anyone stoop to doubt the veracity of Christianity, the New Testament, and the wide range of contradictory and literal interpretations of obviously symbolic texts? Is there any doubt why so many think that the term "biblical evidence" is both oxymoronic and duplicitous?

When finally confronted with the truth about what happened two millennia ago, these people will be completely unable to discern the true Messiah (me) from long-term lies and will fight tooth and nail to cling to the Roman deceptions and strong delusions of the New Testament. Christianity has always been an enemy of science, truth, and justice and recent events strongly reinforce this observation.

Here is Wisdom !!
