Israel, or The Merging Of Pagan Cults To Form Christianity

Faustus, writing to St. Augustine, said: “You have substituted your agape for the sacrifices of the Pagans; for their idols you martyrs, whom you serve with the very same honors. You appease the shades of the dead with wine and feasts; you celebrate the solemn festivals of the Gentiles, their calendars, and their solstices; and as to their manners, those you have retained without any alteration. Nothing distinguishes you from the Pagans, except that you hold your assemblies apart from them” (Draper, Science and Religion, p. 48. New York: 1876).

“The Christian religion is a parody on the worship of the Sun, in which they put a man whom they call Christ, in the place of the Sun, and pay him the same adoration which was originally paid to the Sun.” – Thomas Paine

  1. Thomas Paine is hardly one to believe.
    There are documents proving Jesus Christ was a real man who lived in first century Palestine.
    It is strange how people believed Alexander the great lived, that Napoleon lived,etc. lived, but they do all they can to discredit Jesus’ life and ministry.
    And I know why.
