The Alpha and Omega
In the gospel tale, Jesus
is purported to be the “Alpha and Omega, the beginning and end,”
but these sentiments were plagiarized from older sources,
including the Goddess Isis, in whose temple at Sais, Egypt, it
“I am all that has been, that
is, and that will be.”
As Walker says,
“Alpha and omega, the first and
last letters of the alphabet, were frequently applied to the
Goddess who united in birth and death.”
Angels and Devils
The concept of angels and devils in no way originated with
Judaism or Christianity but is found in many other cultures
around the globe. The Jews, in fact, took the names of some of
their angels from the Persians.
Although Judaism and Christianity have portrayed them
exclusively as male, a trend largely ignored by angel
enthusiasts today, angels were originally considered female in
several cultures, such as the Indian and Persian. Indeed, the
seven archangels of Christianity are masculine remakes of the
Seven Hathors of Egypt, which were female.
As part of the mythos, the good and bad angels (devils or
demons) actually represent the angles or aspects of the zodiac,
whose influences were determined to be either benevolent or
The term “Antichrist” has been applied to numerous rulers and
dissidents over the centuries.
Because of the hideous and evil
the Catholic Church for centuries, a number of popes
were deemed “Antichrists,” including Clement VII. Anyone who
claims that Jesus Christ never existed
could also be called “Antichrist,” a title that eminent
philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche was proud to claim,
because he viewed "Christ" as an
Although many people have been
persecuted for denying Jesus Christ, Christ himself is made to
“And every one who speaks a word
against the Son of man will be forgiven”
It is clear from biblical writings
that during the first centuries of the Christian era, numerous
“Christs” were running about the Roman world, jockeying for
These individuals were such a threat
to the “true” Christ’s representatives that they felt the need
to dispense with the competition by forging the Epistles of John
sometime during the second century:
“Children, it is the last hour;
and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many
antichrists have come.”
(1 Jn. 2:18)
Walker relates the true meaning of
Antichrist was the Christian
equivalent of the Chaldean Aciel, lord of the nether world,
counterbalancing the solar god of heaven.
In other words, it was the night
In the earlier Persian version of the mythos, it was the devil
Ahriman who was to bring his legions against the holy nation,
which in this case was Persia, or Iran, where Armageddon was to
Thus, Armageddon is yet another
age-sold concept that did not originate with Judaism,
Christianity or the Bible.
Baptism is quite common around the world, long predating the
Christian era, as is evidenced by the fact that it was already
in practice when Jesus encountered John the Baptist.
As Massey says,
transfiguration, transubstantiation, the resurrection and
ascension, were all Egyptian mysteries.”
Baptism was done not only by the
sprinkling of water but also by immersion into it.
It was also by “holy wind/spirit”
and by fire, the latter of which in actuality was popular in
many parts of the world and is considered “Zoroastrian.” In the
baptism by fire, the participant, willing or otherwise, is
generally passed through the fire unharmed.
Baptism by fire was still practiced
as of the last century in India and Scotland.
Many people today are aware that Christmas, December 25th, is
the winter solstice and not the actual birthdate of the Jewish
savior-god, yet they continue to look for some other birthdate,
because this was one of the numerous significant “historical”
facts conveniently overlooked by the gospel writers.
Over the centuries, a number of
birthdates had been put forth before the Western church decided
to incorporate the December 25th element of the typical sun god
mythos, in large part to usurp the followers of
In addition, not a few people have noticed the irreconcilability
of the December birthdate with the circumstances of the birth,
which could not have taken place in the winter, with “shepherds
tending their flock,” etc. A date earlier adopted in
Christianity and still maintained by the Eastern Orthodox church
is January 6th, which would also not be correct according to the
biblical tale, since it is also winter.
Hayyim ben Yehoshua relates the origins of
the January 6th date:
“Originally the eastern
Christians believed that [Jesus] was born on 6 January...
Osiris-Aion was said to be born of the virgin Isis on the 6
January and this explains the earlier date for Christmas.”
The early Western Church fathers
assigned two birthdays to Jesus: One at Christmas (winter
solstice) and the other at Easter (vernal equinox), which is to
be expected, since these dates are not historical but are
reflective of the various stages of the sun.
The dual birthdate is found in
Egyptian mythology as well, as Horus was said to have been born
as a babe on December 25th and to have been reborn as a man on
March 25th, the same date traditionally held as the resurrection
of the Savior Adonis, as well as of Christ, as is related by
Byzantine writer Cedrenus:
The first day of the month...
corresponds to the 25th of March... On that day Gabriel
saluted Mary, in order to make her conceive the Savior...
On that very same day, our God Savior (Christ Jesus), after
the termination of his career, arose from the dead; that is,
what our forefathers called the Passover, or the passage of
The “babe” aspect reflects the
“smallness” of the sun in December (northern hemisphere), while
the “man” born again or resurrected in spring signifies the sun
passing over (Passover or “Crossification”) the celestial
equator, when the day and night are briefly equalized, and the
day then begins to become longer than the night.
Thus, it was said that the solar
hero had two birthdays and two mothers.
The selection of the
twenty-fifth of December as [Jesus'] birthday is not only an
arbitrary one, but that date, having been from time
immemorial dedicated to the Sun, the inference is that the
Son of God and the Sun of heaven enjoying the same birthday,
were at one time identical beings.
The fact that Jesus’ death was
accompanied with the darkening of the Sun, and that the date
of his resurrection is also associated with the position of
the Sun at the time of the vernal equinox, is a further
intimation that we have in the story of the birth, death,
and resurrection of Jesus, an ancient and nearly universal
Sunmyth, instead of verifiable historical events.
The Cross and Crucifix
The cross and crucifix are very ancient symbols found around the
world long prior to the supposed advent of the Christian savior.
In the gospel story Jesus tells his disciples to “take up the
cross” and follow him.
Obviously, the cross already existed
and was a well-known symbol, such that Jesus did not even have
to explain this strange statement about an object that, we are
led to believe, only gained significance after Jesus died on it.
The preChristian reverence for the cross and the crucifix, e.g.,
the cross with a man on it, is admitted by the “holy Father”
As for the adoration of the
cross which you (Pagans) object against us (Christians)...
that we neither adore crosses nor desire them; you it is, ye
Pagans... who are the most likely people to adore wooden
crosses... for what else are your ensigns, flags, and
standards, but crosses gilt and beautiful. Your victorious
trophies not only represent a simple cross, but a cross with
a man on it.
The early Christians were actually
repulsed by the image of a man hanging on the cross, which was
not adopted by the Christian church until the 7th century. In
fact, the crucifix with a man on it had been imported to Rome
from India ages before the Christian era.
Indeed, as Walker states,
“Early Christians even
repudiated the cross because it was pagan... Early images of
Jesus represented him not on a cross, but in the guise of
the Osirian or Hermetic ‘Good Shepherd,’ carrying a lamb.”
As stated, the original occupant of
the cross was a lamb, not a man. Like the image of the man on
the cross, that of the crucified lamb was also very ancient,
preceding the Christian era by centuries.
As Taylor recounts:
On a Phoenician medal found in the ruins of Citium, and engraved
in Dr. Clarke’s Travels, and proved by him to be Phoenician, are
inscribed not only the cross, but the rosary, or string of
beads, attached to it, together with the identical Lamb of God,
which taketh away the sins of the world.
The cross was also revered by the ancient people called the
As A. Churchward relates:
This primary Sign or Symbol,
fashioned in the beginning by the African Pygmies to
represent “The One Great Spirit,” has been carried on by the
various cults during human evolution, down to the
present-day Cross of the Christian Doctrines; it has always
represented the One Great One.
Churchward thus reveals that the
Pygmies were very early monotheists, evidently thousands of
years before the Judeo-Christian era. He also reveals the true
meaning of the cross:
Fundamentally the Cross was
astronomical. A Cross with equal arms denotes the time of
equal day and night, and is a figure of the equinox.
As Derek Partridge says,
“What a cross with a circle in
it... truly represents is the sun waning or dying on the
zodiac, and not a man.”
The cross is the celestial emblem of
the sun but it also serves as a phallic symbol.
“The well-known T-shaped cross
was in use in pagan lands long before Christianity, as a
representation of the male member...”
“The cross was also a male
symbol of the phallic Tree of Life.”
Of the Pagan origins of Christianity
and the cross, Higgins concludes:
Mr. Ledwick has observed that
the presence of Heathen devices and crosses on the same coin
are not unusual, as Christians in those early times were for
the most part Semi pagans.
This is diametrically opposed to
all the doctrines of the Protestants about the early purity
of the religion of Christ, and its subsequent corruption by
In fact it is mere nonsense, for
there can be no doubt that the cross was one of the most
common of the Gentile symbols, and was adopted by the
Christians like all their other rites and ceremonies from
Easter celebrations date back into remotest antiquity and are
found around the world, as the blossoming of spring did not
escape the notice of the ancients, who revered this
life-renewing time of the year, when winter had passed and the
sun was “born again.”
Easter, of course, is merely the
Passover, and Jesus represents the Passover Lamb ritually
sacrificed every year by a number of cultures, including the
Egyptians, possibly as early as 4,000 years ago and continuing
to this day in some places.
As ben Yehoshua relates:
The occurrence of Passover at
the same time of year as the pagan “Easter” festivals is not
coincidental. Many of the Pessach customs were designed as
Jewish alternatives to pagan customs. The pagans believed
that when their nature god (such as Tammuz, Osiris or Attis)
died and was resurrected, his life went into the plants used
by man as food.
The matza made from the spring
harvest was his new body and the wine from the grapes was
his new blood. In Judaism, matza was not used to represent
the body of a god but the poor man’s bread which the Jews
ate before leaving Egypt...
When the early Christians
noticed the similarities between Pessach customs and pagan
customs, they came full circle and converted the Pessach
customs back to their old pagan interpretations. The Seder
became the last supper of Jesus, similar to the last supper
of Osiris commemorated at the Vernal Equinox.
The matza and wine once again
became the body and blood of a false god, this time Jesus.
Easter eggs are again eaten to commemorate the resurrection
of a “god” and also the “rebirth” obtained by accepting his
sacrifice on the cross.
Easter is “Pessach” in Hebrew,
“Pascha” in Greek and “Pachons” in Latin, derived from the
Egyptian “PaKhunsu,” Khunsu being an epithet for Horus.
“The festival of Khunsu, or his
birthday, at the vernal equinox, was at one time celebrated
on the twenty-fifth day of the month named after him, Pa
The Easter celebration was so
ubiquitous prior to the Christian era that any number of sources
are probable for its inclusion in Christianity.
As Jackson states:
The Easter ceremonies still
performed in Greek and Roman Catholic churches in Europe are
so similar to the ancient rites of the Adonic cult that Sir
J.G. Frazer has concluded that these churches actually
derived these rites from the ancient worshippers of Adonis.
And Walker relates:
Christians ever afterward kept
Easter Sunday with carnival processions derived from the
mysteries of Attis. Like Christ,
Attis arose when “the sun
makes the day for the first time longer than the night”...
But the spring Holy Week was not
really Christian. Its origin was a universal Indo-European
tradition of extreme antiquity, probably traceable to the
Holi festivals of India which celebrated the rebirth of
spring with joyous orgies.
The Easter celebration was also
found in Mexico, to the astonishment of the invading Catholics:
According to the Franciscan monk
Sahagun, our best authority on the Aztec religion, the
sacrifice of the human god fell at Easter or a few days
later, so that, if he is right, it would correspond in date
as well as in character to the Christian festival of the
death and resurrection of the Redeemer... Women came forth
with children in their arms and presented them to him,
saluting him as a god. For “he passed for our Lord God; the
people acknowledged him as the Lord.”
In Anglo-Saxon, Easter or Eostre is
goddess of the dawn, corresponding to Ishtar, Astarte, Astoreth
and Isis. The word “Easter” shares the same root with “east” and
“eastern,” the direction of the rising sun.
Furthermore, the fact that there is no set date for Easter is
only explainable within the mythos and not as the historical
death and resurrection of a savior-god.
As Jackson relates:
Everyone knows that Easter is a
roving date in the calendar, since it is the first Sunday
after the first full moon after the Vernal Equinox (the
beginning of Spring).
Easter, therefore, cannot be the
date of the death of any historical personage. Two dates are
given in the New Testament for the time of crucifixion,
namely: the 14th and 15th of the month of Nisan. Why this
The truth explanation was given
by Gerald Massey:
“The Synoptics say that
Jesus was crucified on the 15th of the month of Nisan.
John affirms that it was on the 14th of the month. This
serious rift runs through the very foundation!... The
crucifixion (or Crossing) was, and still is, determined
by the full moon of Easter. This, in the lunar
reckoning, would be on the 14th in a month of
twenty-eight days; in the solar month of thirty days it
was reckoned to occur on the 15th of the month.
Both unite, and the rift
closes in proving the Crucifixion to have been
astronomical, just as it was in Egypt, where the two
dates can be identified.”
The date of Easter, when the godman
was purportedly crucified and resurrected, was debated for
One “distinguished churchman,” as
Eusebius calls him, Anatolius, reveals the meaning of Easter and
of Christ, as well as the fact that astrology was a known and
respected science used in Christianity, when he says:
On this day [March 22] the sun
is found not only to have reached the first sign of the
Zodiac, but to be already passing through the fourth day
within it. This sign is generally known as the first of the
twelve, the equinoctial sign, the beginning of months, head
of the cycle, and start of the planetary course...
Aristobolus adds that it is
necessary at the Passover Festival that not only the sun but
the moon as well should be passing through an equinoctial
sign. There are two of these signs, one in spring, one in
autumn, diametrically opposed to each other...
Heaven and Hell
The concepts of heaven and hell were not introduced by the
Judeo-Christian tradition but existed for millennia in other
cultures, such as the Persian and Indian.
The Tibetans depict several levels
of heaven and hell, which is a temporary state of mind, rather
than enduring torture. The afterlife was also a common theme in
the Egyptian theology, which tended to be more upbeat and less
focused on the torments of hell.
As Massey relates:
The prototypes of hell and
purgatory and the earthly paradise are all to be found in
the Egyptian Amenta... The Egyptian hell was not a place of
everlasting pain, but of extinction of those who were wicked
It must be admitted, to the honor and glory
of the Christian deity, that a god of eternal torment is an
ideal distinctly Christian, to which the Egyptians never did
Theirs was the all-parental god,
Father and Mother in one whose heart was thought to bleed in
every wound of suffering humanity, and whose son was
represented in the character of the Comforter.
The word “Hell” is also derived from
goddess Hel, whose womb was a place of immortality.
The Christians demonized this womb
and made it a place of eternal damnation, and, since volcanoes
were considered entrances into the womb of Mother Earth, it
became a fiery hell. The original Pagan hell had no locality and
was often situated in the same place as heaven.
The nature of hell has thus varied with the culture and era.
Some cultures thought hell was the harsh winter; thus, it was
located near the South Pole, the “bottomless pit,” from which
winter was thought to come. This hellish variety is reflected in
the Judeo-Christian scriptures: Matthew and Jude both speak of a
hell of darkness, while Matthew also refers to a hell of
Matthew also speaks of a hell where
the body and soul are annihilated, and one where the soul is
punished for eternity. In the Bible in general, hell is depicted
as being limited yet endless; it is upper and lower. Hell is
also biblically portrayed as a lake of fire and brimstone, yet a
bottomless pit, etc.
The descent into hell by the savior is a common occurrence
within many mythologies, found in the stories of,
This part of the mythos represents
the sun entering into the womb of darkness, nightly and
seasonally. The sun, of course, is the only expert on hell who
has returned to tell about it; hence, it is the sun who is the
immortal authority on the afterlife.
Graves relates the meaning of hell
within the mythos:
The word astronomers use to
indicate the sun in its high point of ascension is
perihelion. Now you may notice there is a Hell in this word
(perihelion); at least it can be traced to Hell, or Hell to
Helion, the last part of this word was pronounced by the
Greeks Elios, and is synonymous with Acheron, which is
generally translated Hell. So that we have “peri,” which
means around, about, and “helion,” Hell - that is, the sun
Basically, the concepts of eternal
heaven and hell have been utilized to suit the needs of the
manipulating priests, who sell their wares by means of greed for
heaven and fear of hell.
As Doane says:
Heaven was born of the sky, and
nurtured by cunning priests, who made man a coward and a
Hell was built by priests, and nurtured by the fears
and servile fancies of man during the ages when dungeons of
torture were a recognized part of every government, and when
God was supposed to be an infinite tyrant, with infinite
resources of vengeance.
The Holy Ghost
In many cultures, the Holy Ghost was considered female, as
Sophia, Sapientia, or Hokmah - Wisdom - “but the patriarchy
As Christ was the sun, the Holy
Ghost was also the moon, which was often considered female.
Although the Holy Ghost is a cherished concept, representing
God’s very spirit and goodness, Wheless remarks:
The “Holy Ghost” itself, it is
claimed by the Bible and the Church, inspired and decreed by
positive command all the bloody murders and tortures by the
priests from Moses to the last one committed; and the spirit
of them lives and is but hibernating today.
The Holy God of Israel, whose
name is Merciful, thus decreed on Sinai: “He that
sacrificeth to any gods [elohim], save unto Yahweh only, he
shall be utterly destroyed.”
(Ex. xxii, 20).
The Holy Grail
The cup or chalice used
by Christ in the biblical tale to convey “his blood” was, like
so many other “relics,” considered to contain magical powers of
the highest kind.
Thus, the “Holy Grail” became the
object of much attention and many bloody “quests” for those
seeking such powers. Of course, there was no “real” Grail, but
this fact did not stop anyone from either looking for it or
claiming they already possessed it.
Of the frenzy surrounding the Holy
Grail, Walker says:
If the Grail was nothing more
than the cup of Christ’s blood, then there was no reason for
the great Quest at all. The cup of Christ’s blood was
readily available to all, in every chapel; and even though
it was called a holy sacrament, its discovery somehow lacked
thrills. As matters turn out, to Christianize the Grail was
to neutralize the magnetism of its secret nature.
Naturally, the Grail myth existed
prior to the Christian era.
As Walker also relates:
The real origins of the Holy
Grail were not Christian but pagan. The Grail was first
Christianized in Spain from a sacred tradition of the Moors.
Like the Celts’ holy Cauldron of Regeneration, which it
resembled, the blood-filled vessel was a womb symbol meaning
rebirth in the Oriental or Gnostic sense of reincarnation.
Its connotation was feminine, not masculine.
The temple where the Grail was kept
was in actuality not localized on Earth but in the heavens,
surrounded by the 72 “chapels” or decans of the zodiac.
Graham gives the “deep astrological”
meaning of the Grail:
The first decanate of Leo is the
Crater, or Cup, the solar crucible; the second is Centaurus,
the soldier on horseback. It was of this Cup the Sun of God
drank, and it was this soldier that bound him and led him
away to be crucified on Golgotha, Egypt, Earth.
The Holy Land
Rather than being a designation of a particular place on Earth,
the “Holy Land” is the direction of east, “the place of coming
forth,” where the sun god Horus appears.
Ichthys - The Fish
As we have seen, Jesus is
the solar avatar of the Age of Pisces, the Fishes.
Dujardin relates the origin of the
Fish and its identification with Jesus:
This title [Ichthus, the Fish]
was a survival of the primitive cults of the time when the
gods had the form of animals... The following facts are
(1) Jesus is actually called
the Fish, Ichthus
(2) He is represented in the
form of a fish in the Catacombs
(3) Tertullian calls him
(4) Heretical sects
worshipped him as “the serpent,” into which animal
Jahvehism transformed the primitive fish-god...
(5) The cult of the fish is
attested by the story of the loaves and fishes in the
The patriarch Joshua, who was
plainly an ancient god of Palestine and bore the same name
as the god of Christianity, is called the son of Nun, which
signifies “son of the fish.”
Augustine said of Jesus, “he is a
fish of the living water,” to which Massey might remark, “as was
said of Horus.”
The Lamb of God
As we have seen, a number of godmen around the world have been
considered the “Lamb of God.”
This ubiquitous designation is not
reflective of hordes of historical saviors but is another aspect
of the mythos, dealing with the sun in the Age of Aries.
As noted, during the Age of Taurus,
the Bull motif was ever-present, while in Aries it was the Lamb:
“Afterward the Ram or Lamb
became an object of adoration, when, in his turn, he opened
the equinox, to deliver the world from the wintry reign of
darkness and evil.”
When the sun was in Taurus, the bull
was sacrificed, and in Aries, it was the lamb or ram.
Christianity was created as the sun
moved into Pisces, hence the fish symbol and the fisherman
motif. Yet, the old title of “Lamb of God” remained attached to
Christ, and at Easter orthodox Christians still slaughter lambs,
in holding with the ancient Pagan rituals. The slaughter of
fish, apparently, is not bloody enough for blood-atonement
Since the symbol of the coming Age
of Aquarius is a “man carrying a pitcher of water” (Lk. 22:10),
we certainly hope religionists will not begin to sacrifice
bottled water deliverers or waiters.
The Logia (Sayings), Sermon on the
Mount, Beatitudes and Parables
Over the millennia much has been made of the “Sayings” or Logia
of Jesus, also known as the,
“Sayings of the Savior”
the Sage” (“Logoi Sophon”)
the “Oracles of Jesus/the Savior"
the “Hebrew Oracles”
the “Oracles of
...which are one of the two main subdivisions of the
gospels, the other being the narrative.
The sayings or logia constituted one
of the many shared texts used separately by the evangelists in
the creation of the gospels.
This logia collection was eventually
publicized as the “Gospel of Q,” or just plain “Q,” for “Quelle”
in German, meaning “source.”
Q scholarship reveals the logia
themselves are composed of three separate texts, Q1, Q2 and Q3.
Recognizing that virtually the entire gospel story is mythical,
Q scholarship attempts to find the “real” Jesus in a handful of
sayings represented by Q1. It should be noted that the initial
logia, constituting Q1, do not have any Jewish affiliation
except the word Solomon, and that Q2 and Q3 only mention the
Pharisees and not Sadducees.
In finding a “historical Jesus” in Q1, historicizers are thus
left with a “man” who was,
“was first remembered as a Cynic
sage and only later imagined as a prophet who uttered
However, in reducing Jesus to a
handful of logia we are left with nearly verbatim sayings from
manuscripts preceding the Christian era, demonstrating that this
Q Jesus already existed, non-historically and mystically for
centuries if not millennia.
In other words, the
Logia Iesou, as
they are called in Greek, are not, as has been supposed, the
“genuine” sayings of the “historical” Jesus but represent orally
transmitted traditions common in the various brotherhoods and
mystery schools long before Christianity was created.
The logia are in fact repetitions of the sayings of Horus, as
the Word, or Iuemhept, 3,000 years before the Christian version.
As Massey states:
The “sayings” were common
property in the mysteries ages before they were ever written
down.... The “logia” in the twenty-fifth chapter of Matthew
reproduce not only the sayings, but also the scenery of the
Last Judgment in the Great Hall of Justice, represented in
the [Egyptian] Book of the Dead.
Just as the gospel writers and
church fathers claimed the logia or “oracles” were recorded by
Matthew, so were the sayings of Osiris recorded by the scribe
Taht-Matiu. In addition, the logia are those of Dionysus, serving
as part of “the mysteries” found at Samothrace, for one.
Some of the sayings constitute the famous “Sermon on the Mount,”
also not original with Christ. As noted, Horus delivered a
Sermon on the Mount, and there is within the Egyptian Hermetic
or Trismesgistic tradition a discourse called “The
Secret Sermon on the Mount.”
The Egyptian Sermon sayings also
found their way into the Old Testament.
As Robertson says,
“As for the Sermon on the Mount,
of which so much is made, it is no more than a patchwork of
utterances found in the Old Testament.”
The “Sermon on the Mount” which,
with the “Lord’s Prayer” embedded in it, forms the great and
accepted repository of “Christian” teaching and piety, is
well known to be a collection of sayings from preChristian
writings, including the Psalms, Isaiah, Ecclesiasticus, the
Secrets of Enoch, the Shemonehesreh (a book of Hebrew
prayers), and others...
Among the words of Jesus, you
will recognize that much of the “Sermon on the Mount,”
especially the fifth chapter of Matthew, also the thirteenth
of Mark and its parallels in the other gospels, sometimes
called “The Little Apocalypse,” seem almost verbatim
quotations from the Books of Enoch, the Book of Jubilees,
and the Testament of the Twelve Patriarchs.
A number of the elements or
beatitudes of the Sermon are found in the doctrines of the
preChristian Nazarenes, such as “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
As Massey states:
And these, for example, are
amongst the “sayings” in the Book of the Nazarenes.
“Blessed are the
peacemakers, the just, and ‘faithful.’”
“Feed the hungry; give drink
to the thirsty; clothe the naked.”
“When thou makest a gift,
seek no witness whereof, to mar thy bounty. Let thy
right hand be ignorant of the gifts of the left.”
Such were common to all the
Gnostic Scriptures, going back to the Egyptian.
The sayings of the Lord were
pre-historic, as the sayings of David (who was an
earlier Christ), the sayings of Horus the Lord, of Elija
the Lord, of Mana the Lord, of Christ the Lord, as the
divine directions conveyed by the ancient teachings. As
the “Sayings of the Lord” they were collected in Aramaic
to become the nuclei of the earliest Christian gospel
according to Matthew.
So says Papias. At a later
date they were put forth as the original revelation of a
personal teacher, and were made the foundation of the
historical fiction concocted in the four gospels that
were canonized at last.
No matter who the plagiarist may be, the teaching now
held to be divine was drawn from older human sources,
and palmed off under false pretenses... Nothing new
remained to be inculcated by the Gospel of the new
teacher, who is merely made to repeat the old sayings
with a pretentious air of supernatural authority; the
result being that the true sayings of old are, of
necessity, conveyed to later times in a delusive
The most important
proclamations assigned to Jesus turned out to be false.
The kingdom of God was not at hand; the world was not
nearing its end; the catastrophe foretold never
occurred; the second coming was no more actual than the
first; the lost sheep of Israel are not yet saved.
Many of the concepts contained in
the logia/sayings, which are held up by Christian defenders as
the core of Jesus' teachings and a reflection of his goodness
and compassion, can also be found in the Vedas as spoken by the
compassionate Krishna and in the
Dhammapada attributed to the
equally compassionate Buddha, as well as in the
Tao Te Ching of
the Chinese sage Lao Tzu (6th century BCE).
Likewise, a number of Jesus’s parables were derived from
Buddhism and from the very ancient Indian sect of Jainism, such
as those of the prodigal son and the sower.
As Larson says,
“We must thus summarize the
basic teachings of Jesus, none of which were original to
The Logia Iesou constituted the
sayings element of the mythos found in mystery schools that
could be considered part of a “salvation cult,” whose
practitioners were “spiritual physicians” in the business of
Once the code of secrecy regarding
the logia had been broken, numerous books were written
containing them. Bishop Papias purportedly published a five
volume “Exegeses/Expositions on the Sayings of the Lord,” thus
demonstrating that the sayings were a monolithic body separate
from the narrative.
It is inexplicable that such a
monumental work by an early Christian father was “lost,” except
that it had to be destroyed because it revealed the Savior as
The Lord’s Prayer
As concerns the supposed
originality of the “Lord’s Prayer,” which is presented as having
come clear out of the blue from the very mouth of the Lord
Himself, Wheless says it best:
Like the whole “Sermon on the
Mount,” the Prayer is a composite of ancient sayings of the
Scripture strung together to form it, as the marginal
cross-references show throughout.
We might add that the “Scripture”
referred to by Wheless is not only from the Old Testament but is
part of the ancient mythos/ritual:
“...the Lord’s Prayer was a
collection of sayings from the Talmud, many derived from
earlier Egyptian prayers to Osiris.”
Walker also relates that the Lord’s
Prayer was once the Lady’s Prayer:
The plea for daily bread
incorporated into the Lord’s Prayer must have been a plea to
the Goddess in earlier times, for she was always the giver
of bread, the Grain Mother .
The Logos or Word
Jesus is called the “Word” or, “Logos,” which, although it
appears mysterious and mystical to the uninitiated, is actually
commonplace in Greek parlance, as it has many meanings,
including “word,” “speech,” “rumor” and “reason.”
The logos is in actuality a
primitive concept, reflecting merely the way in which God
created the world, i.e., through speech. The Logos concept is
not new with Christianity but is applied to a number of older
deities in mythologies from the Mediterranean to China.
The Word is also found in the
Phoenician Creed. As in all those of Asia, a Word of God,
written in starry characters, by the planetary Divinities,
and communicated by the Demi-Gods, as a profound mystery, to
the higher classes of the human race, to be communicated by
them to mankind, created the world.
Of the Logos-Jesus concept in the
Gospel of John, Wheless says:
As there can be no more positive
and convincing proof that the Christ was and is a Pagan Myth
- the old Greek “Logos” of Heraclitus and the Philosophers
revamped by the Greek priest who wrote the first chapter of
the “Gospel according to St. John” and worked up into the
“Incarnate Son” of the old Hebrew God for Christian
consumption as the most sacred Article of the Christian
Faith and Theology...
Thus confessedly [in the
Catholic Encyclopedia] is the Divine Revelation of the “Word
made flesh” a Pagan-Jewish Myth, and the very Pagan Demiurge
is the Christian Christ - “Very God” - and the “Second
Person of the Blessed Trinity.”
Although much is made of Lucifer, the “fallen angel,” his name
only appears translated as such in one verse in the King James
bible, at Isaiah 14:12, where he is called “son of the morning.”
“Lucifer” is also translated as “Day Star, son of Dawn.”
This passage describes the day
star’s “fall from heaven” after he attempts to “ascend to
heaven; above the stars of God” to set his throne. From this
single passage, an enormous tale has taken shape, with all sorts
of speculation as to who Lucifer “really” was, including
everything from the leader of the devils to that of evil aliens.
Despite all the political intrigue, Lucifer simply means “Light
Bearer,” and he was in earliest times a sun god, which is why he
is called “Day Star, son of morning/dawn.”
The sun god Lucifer is “cast out of
heaven” by the other angels, or stars, as night descends.
god/angel Lucifer is preHebraic, found in Canaan, Egypt and
Mesopotamia, and was not originally considered evil. In Dutch, a
Lucifer is a match, a purely utilitarian object that brings
light and fire. Like the many gods of other cultures, Lucifer
was vilified by the Christians so they could raise their own god
Ironically, since both are the day
or morning star, Jesus and Lucifer are in fact one and the same.
The Lucifer myth can also be found in the Greek story of the
“son of the sun,” Phaeton, who was cast out of heaven by his
Father after committing the crime of hubris.
The story of Vulcan, the Roman solar
god, is similar to the Lucifer myth, as he too is cast out of
heaven by the gods as darkness descends.
The mysterious king of Salem, Melchizedek, or Adonizedek, as he
is also called in the
Book of Jasher, is mentioned in the OT as
the priest of the Most High God (El Elyon) who blessed Abraham.
In the Epistle to the Hebrews, Jesus
is named as a mere priest “after the order of Melchizedek,” a
passage serving to establish the Order of Melchizedek as the
ultimate authority, beyond Abraham and Jesus.
In fact, the Christian Gnostics
considered Melchizedek a savior-god higher than Jesus:
“Melchizedek was the savior for
angels, while Christ was only the savior for men.”
Like that of so many other biblical
characters, the identity of Melchizedek can be found in the
preYahwist cultures of the Levant.
As Walker states,
“Jerusalem was ‘the House of
Peace,’ or of the god Salem, whose earlier city was ruled by
Melchizedek (Genesis 14), the ‘King of Light’ called Melek
or Molech in Phoenicia.”
Molech is the sun and fire god,
originally from Persia and India, and worshipped by the
The Molech/Melek cult also
flourished in Paul’s purported hometown of Tarsus, as Heracles-Melkart.
As stated, Solomon and other
Moloch was a god of the
Ammonites, also worshiped among the Israelites. Solomon
built a temple to him, on the Mount of Olives, and human
sacrifices were offered to him.
Sacrifice to Moloch/Molech was by
burning, and when the “sons of Judah” thus incinerated their
children (Jer. 7:31), drums were beaten and instruments were
played to drown out the screams.
Though vilified by the Yahwists, as Walker says,
“For a while, Molech was
Yahweh... Levite priests eventually
distinguished Yahweh from Molech and forbade the latter’s
worship (Leviticus 18:21).”
The baptism of Molech or Melchom was
likewise by fire, which is why Christ, as high priest of the
Order of Melchizedek, was said to baptize by fire.
It is this baptism by fire, as well
as immolation by fire, as in burnt offerings, that distinguishes
the Order of Melchizedek; hence, when mention of the Order is
made in the Bible, it serves as a reference to these rites, the
practitioners of which are considered the “true” priesthood.
Indeed, offering to Molech is
permitted to this day in the Talmud, although it is debated as
to whether or not one may pass the child through fire.
The birth celebration or nativity of the great savior existed as
a ritual long prior to the Christian era.
As Frazer says:
The ritual of the nativity, as
it appears to have been celebrated in Syria and Egypt, was
remarkable. The celebrants retired into certain inner
shrines, from which at midnight they issued a loud cry, “The
Virgin has brought forth! The light is waxing!”
Egyptians even represented the newborn sun by the image of
an infant which on his birthday, the winter solstice, they
brought forth and exhibited to his worshippers.
Hazelrigg explains the meaning
within the mythos of the nativity and the rest of the sacred
The Nativity, the Betrayal, the
Crucifixion, and the Resurrection are but quarterly stages
in the mystic journey, expressed as a geometrical ration in
natural physics - ever the same whether applied to the
four quarters of the day, the four lunar phases, the four
cardinal points or seasons in the solar revolution...
The Sabbath predates the Jewish religion and is found in the
Middle East and India, where it signified the seventh-day rest
of the Goddess Durga.
Ignorant of its origins, the various
Christian sects have been squabbling for centuries as to when
the Sabbath should be observed, as ordained by the Jewish god
The “purists” feel that Sabbath is to be observed on
Saturday, rather than the “Pagan” day of Sunday adopted by the
“corrupt” Catholic Church; however, Saturday is also a “Pagan”
day, named for “Saturn.”
As Doane relates:
The planet Saturn very early
became the chief deity of Semitic religion. Moses
consecrated the number seven to him... “The Seventh day was
sacred to Saturn throughout the east.”... “Saturn’s day was
made sacred to God, and the planet is now called cochab
shabbath, ‘The Sabbath Star.’ The sanctification of the
Sabbath is clearly connected with the word Shabua or Sheba,
The Second Coming/Day of Judgment
Although billions of people over the centuries have been waiting
endlessly for the Second Coming of Jesus, believing that it is a
very unusual event, the “second coming” has been expected of
numerous savior-gods, including Krishna, Buddha, Bacchus,
Quetzalcoatl and others around the world.
The same can be said of the end of
the world, the millennium and the Day of Judgment.
Of the Day of
Judgment, Doane relates:
“Prof. Carpenter, referring to
the Egyptian Bible - which is by far the most ancient of all
holy books - says:
‘In the “Book of Dead,” there are used
the very phrases we find in the New Testament, in connection
with the day of judgment.’”
The “Second Coming,” in fact, is the
return of the sun in a new precessional age.
The number of disciples
is represented variously in the gospels, from 12 to 70 to 72.
This numerical trio can be explained
by the mythos and not as history. To begin with, “72” was often
rounded off to 70, so the two numbers are interchangeable.
Tradition holds that there are 72 names of God, which is
appropriate, since 72 is yet another sacred number, the reason
why there are also 72 nations in the 10th chapter of Genesis.
Like Jesus, Confucius (6th century
BCE) had 72 initiated disciples. Furthermore, the 72 are the
same accomplices of Set who plotted the death of Osiris.
The 72 actually represent the decans or dodecani, divisions of
the zodiacal circle into 5° each, also considered
constellations. In addition, it takes 72 years for the
precession of the equinoxes to move one degree. As noted, the
story of Jacob’s Ladder with 72 ascending and descending angels
is actually a reflection of the zodiac and the angles of the
Furthermore, the magical pentagram
or pentacle is made from the division of the decans.
Regarding the pentacle, the number
72 and the legendary 72 translators of the Hebrew bible into
Greek, Walker says:
To draw a pentacle, one divides
a circle into five arcs of seventy-two degrees each.
Seventy-two is the prime magic number...
So magical was 72
that one of the most durable myths about the origin of the
Bible called it the Book of the Seventy-Two (Septuagint),
claiming that it had been translated from Hebrew to Greek in
the third century B.C. by seventy-two scholars
simultaneously, and that each version was precisely the same
as all seventy-one others.
This silly story was an article
of Christian faith throughout the Middle Ages.
In Gnostic texts,
the chariot of
Ezekiel is the wheel of the zodiac with the 72 decans,
representing the “chariot of the Sun.”
Doresse relates the Gnostic
“The chariot, we are told, has
been taken for a model by the seventy-two gods who govern
the seventy-two languages of the peoples.”
The doctrine of transubstantiation, found at 1 Corinthians 1012,
represents the miraculous transformation of bread and wine into
the body and blood of Christ.
However, this sort of magical ritual
was practiced around the world in a variety of forms eons before
the Christian era and is, therefore, in no way original to
... the ancient Mexicans, even
before the arrival of Christianity, were fully acquainted
with the doctrine of transubstantiation and acted upon it in
the solemn rites of their religion.
They believed that by
consecrating bread their priests could turn it into the very
body of their god, so that all who thereupon partook of the
consecrated bread entered into a mystic communion with the
deity by receiving a portion of his divine substance into
The doctrine of
transubstantiation, or the magical conversion of bread into
flesh, was also familiar with the Aryans of ancient India
long before the spread and even the rise of Christianity.
This practice has been considered
barbaric and savage by nonCatholic Christians and other
religionists, not to mention ludicrous by non-religionists.
The preChristian ancients knew that
the transubstantiation was allegorical, not actual:
“‘When we call corn Ceres and
wine Bacchus,’ says Cicero, ‘we use a common figure of
speech; but do you imagine that anybody is so insane as to
believe that they thing he feeds upon is a god?’”
The trinity or triune deity is yet another aspect of the
ubiquitous mythos, found in countless other cultures long prior
to the Christian era.
Obviously, then, the concept did not
originate with Jesus; in fact, it was not adopted into
Christianity until the Council of Nicea in 325. Like so many
aspects of Christianity, the trinity was originally found in the
As Churchward says:
Such mysteries as the Trinity,
the Incarnation, and the Virgin Birth, the Transfiguration
on the Mount, the Passion, Death, Burial, Resurrection and
Ascension, Transubstantiation and Baptismal Regeneration,
were all extant in the mysteries of Amenta with Horus or
Iuem-Hotep as the Egyptian Jesus.
Jacolliot notes that the Trinity is
also of Indian origin:
“The Trinity in Unity, rejected
by Moses, became afterwards the foundation of Christian
theology, which incontestably acquired it from India.”
Over the millennia, the trinity took
different forms: all-female, all-male and mixed. The earliest
trinities in many places were all-female.
As Walker relates:
From the earliest ages, the
concept of the Great Goddess was a trinity and the model for
all subsequent trinities, female, male or mixed.... Even
though Brahmans evolved a male trinity of Brahma, Vishnu,
and Shiva to play these parts [of Creator, Preserver and
Destroyer], Tantric scriptures insisted that the Triple
Goddess had created these gods in the first place....
The Middle East had many
trinities, most originally female. As time went on, one or
two members of the triad turned male. The usual pattern was
Father-Mother-Son, the Son figure envisioned as a Savior...
Among Arabian Christians there was apparently a holy trinity
of God, Mary, and Jesus, worshipped as an interchangeable
replacement for the Egyptian trinity of Osiris, Isis, and
In the solar mythos, the trinity
also represents the sun in three stages: Newborn (dawn), mature
(fullgrown at 12 noon), and “old and dying, at the end of the
day (going back to the Father).”
The trinity is even found in Peru, a fact that prompted the
perturbed Rev. Father Acosta to remark:
It is strange that the devil
after his manner has brought a Trinity into idolatry, for
the three images of the sun called Apomti, Churunti, and
Intiquaoqui, signify Father and Lord Sun, the Son Sun, and
the Brother Sun.
In reality these infamous “devil”
comments are reflective of sheer cultural and racial bigotry,
not to mention the appalling ignorance and stupidity of those
supposedly entrusted by the “omniscient and omnipotent Lord God"
with the instruction of the entire human race.
