The Bible is the most overrated book in the world, and Jesus of Nazareth the most overrated person in world history. These are some of the propositions which the author, who has a doctorate in theology, formulates in his examination of the Christian religion. In a very readable and often humorous style the book asks whether the Bible really is such a good, ethically valuable book, as the Churches always claim, or whether the God of the Old Testament is not rather an irascible war god while the New Testament announces the destruction of all unbelievers at the end times: "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned" (Mark 16: 16). The book also asks whether the Churches are right to invoke that Jesus of Nazareth whom they announce as the Son of God. After all, academic research has long established that the real Jesus was very different and had almost nothing in common with the Jesus of the Churches. Christianity has been driving through history without a driver's licence. This book is addressed both to believers who do not shy away from confronting uncomfortable facts, and to those people who have nothing to do with the Church and who have always suspected that something in Christianity is not quite right.

JUDAS, THE HERO At the heart of Jesus' delusion was his obsessive desire to offer himself as a sacrifice so his 'Father' would bring an end to the world with the Day of Judgement. He could not accomplish this alone. So he chose his favourite, the disciple he had given charge of the groups funds: Judas Iscariot, the man judged by history as the quintessential traitor to assist him. History is wrong. They worked hand in glove. A gnostic fragment discovered in 1972 and publicly revealed in 2005, The Gospel of Judas supports this view. But the real story of the partnership between Jesus and Judas is actually contained in the New Testament itself and is revealed with blinding clarity in historian and biographer, Robert Macklin's pioneering work, THE JESUS DELUSION. 'Robert Macklin digs into the texts to come up with a complex, indignant and physically unattractive human being who will disturb today's Fundamentalists almost as much as Jesus upset his fellow Rabbis.' Phillip Adams
I saw Christ during a near death experience (NDE) in January 1969 while buried beneath a pile of biomaterial, outguessing poisonous methane gas. I had multiple compound fractures and no air. To this day, I swear it being as real as you, me or anyone else. Yes, I saw the tunnel of light with Christ at the opposite end. The Christ I saw had long brunet hair—the one I knew from Sunday school and books. Now that I have actually studied the Bible, I know He almost certainty had short hair, like his peers, the other men in his culture. Check it out. First Corinthians 11:14 says, “Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to Him?” God Himself thought long hair on a man was an abomination. It's obvious that is a disgrace for a man to have long hair! The most common word to describe long effeminate hair is the very word Paul used in First Corinthians 11:14: “degrading” (atimia), the major reason for objecting to long hair. How do we explain all the pictures of Christ depicted with long hair? Is that delusional thinking at the mass level? Again, did the Holy Word mislead us poor ignorant Christians, or did we fill in the gap for God? I’m laying my money on God – long hair was abhorrent to Him. As such, His son arrived with short hair. Now if Christ was anything like today’s youth, he would have rejected long hair – it simply wasn’t in style. Is humankind’s vision of Jesus just a delusion? Is the phenomenon of UFOs but another case of MASS delusion? It has happened before and within the past one hundred years –“Invasion of Mars”, Orison Well’s Broadcast. Could be, but humankind has been reporting them through word, paintings, or hieroglyphics since 29,000BC. If one buys into that, but not into UFO’s, then one must conclude that the entire world, since the beginning of time, has BEEN A DELUSION.
Will Christians vanish in a rapture? Will seven years of apocalyptic terror overtake those left behind? Will one future Mr. Diabolical—the antichrist—rise to control the world? Will he enter a rebuilt Jewish temple, claiming to be God? Will Earth’s nations attack Israel at Armageddon? Best-selling books like Left Behind and popular apocalyptic movies predict such things. Are they correct? No area of Christianity has been subject to more misguided interpretation than end time prophecy. Millions of Christians sense we are nearing Jesus Christ’s return. Yet when it comes to what the majority thinks will happen during Earth’s last days, and what the Bible actually says will occur, the difference is seismic. With clarity and biblical accuracy, End Time Delusions exposes massive errors now flooding through media and in much of today’s sensational prophecy writing. This book closely examines tightly meshed yet speculative theories about the rapture, seven-year tribulation, antichrist, and the modern Jewish state. This book is no novelty. Buttressed with solid teachings from many of Christianity’s most illustrious scholars, it lets the Bible speak for itself about the past, present, and future.
Planetary Delusion …The Falling Away By: Steve Barrett Using the Authorized Bible, Steve Barrett explores the topic of the true age and shape of the earth. Barrett argues that the “heliocentric lie” has been the foundation for many deceiving theologies. This “planetary delusion,” has been a vehement force of indoctrination that could be the most deceptive way to introduce an intergalactic savior with malicious intent. Planetary Delusion …The Falling Away describes the prevalence of end-times deception and illustrates the importance of the biblical description of earth and how it may be related to the falling away. While primarily an eschatological study, it was written with both the Christian and non-believer in mind. Readers willing to have an open mind will be provoked to study the Bible and dig deeper to discover the truth for themselves.
This book was written using the Bible as the standard, and is for the novice as well as the seasoned scholar. This work will challenge you on every level. Many of the toughest subjects in theology today are answered Biblically and explained in a manner that anyone can understand. It reveals the mystery around the End Time delusion, how to avoid it and the falling away mentioned in Thessalonians. The author explains how the Great Pyramids, Stonehenge, and other wonders of the world are tied to the Bible and why Jesus is the only way to heaven. You will be shocked, to find out who the false Christ's are and why they are currently hiding. This work points out that there are some minor misconceptions of God's word that will ultimately help with the Delusion and how many well known ministers today are already falling for it as well. Their failing doctrines say that you may be able to get to heaven without Jesus and this shows that they will embrace the antichrist. Jesus told us to pray that we be found worthy to escape these things and the author explains what you must do in order to do just that. God clearly told this author to warn his people so read on if you dare, be forewarned, be armed with the truth and escape these things.
This book is a giant jig-saw puzzle that took a lifetime to put together. The author has always been driven by a need to know, really know, and understand the essence of things and how they all relate to each other. To that end, he has studied many things, lived and worked in many countries and learned to do many different things. This book is the result of much reflection and inspiration in putting all the pieces together. This is an eagle's eye view of the human story from Adam to the Antichrist. It is the story of man's relationship with God, full of remarkable insight and touching compassion and inspiration. This is the story of the war against God for the heart of man. It is a unique and unprecedented book in its scope, clarity and conciseness.
The book is a logical Bible study and in-depth examination of Race, Sex, Power, Politics and War. The Author addresses the false doctrine and propaganda that has been fronted for centuries, by Christianity and Judaism, as to their supremacy above other religions and races. He also examines the role these two religions have played in promoting these false doctrines, which literally contradict, the written laws of the Bible. The book further looks at Islam where the Author acknowledges the origin and foundation of its “original teachings,” as is likened by God's Commandments and as written in the Holy Bible and Holy Qur'an. The Author takes a scalpel to dissect race and religion to its core. The Author separates the gentile dogma of Christianity and Judaism and highlights their contradiction to the Laws of God. Lastly, he dwells on separation of races based on their individual religious philosophies, concluding in the introduction of Lucifer as a Chief Architect of Gentile religious doctrine and practices. Lucifer’s mission is to maintain the delusion of the white God and its false power to rule over Black and Semite people. Quotes from Author: “I am challenging the world’s Christian religious believers, communities and the general masses to follow the true laws of God. They should stop falling prey to the “False Luciferian Doctrine” and the delusion of White God.” “I affirm to the world that, I am a true servant of God who is challenging all religious ministers to debate evidence and facts, referred to in this book through the lesson chapters, so that they may distinguish the truth from the lie. I challenge them to debate about the alleged religious authorities in reference to the Christian and Jewish faith, in order to determine, if truly, their religious practices is of the God of Heaven and Earth. “I challenge all ministers to prove that they follow and believe in the commandments, Laws and Statues of God as written in the scriptures. I further

In a recent work Richard Dawkins posed an immense challenge to theology by arguing on scientific grounds that the existence of God is so improbable that it can be safely dismissed as a delusion. This work responds to the challenge by examining the arguments put forward by Dawkins and subjecting them to critique in the light of Christian faith. The critique probes some of the assumptions underlying scientific endeavours about the nature of reality and it brings to the surface the question of how meaning, truth and freedom are properly to be understood. The work goes on to present a theological understanding of these realities in the light of Christian beliefs in God, in Jesus Christ, in creation and in redemption. Far from denying the importance of scientific endeavours and discoveries, this approach seeks to provide a framework in which they can be meaningfully situated, for the betterment of humanity as a whole.
Lewis, the best-selling author of Prophecy 2000, shares fascinating research into the diabolical source of flying saucers and the hunger of a society looking to the great beyond for answers to its immense problems. Why are supermarket tabloids filled with wise messages from space, detailing the true nature of God and alternate roads to salvation? Are these aliens demonic counterfeits?
This story begins with the charismatic movement within the Christian church in the 1970s. Author Gwen Francis saw herself as only an observer at a Life in the Spirit seminar at an Anglican Church in New Zealand in 1975. Her subsequent experience of the Blessing of the Holy Spirit and various unasked-for gifts resulted in her admission to a psychiatric hospital. At the time, she was certain she was obeying God in all she said and did. In God is No Delusion, she explains the God she has known all of her life, and she discusses the force of evil that tries to separate us and help us destroy ourselves. Blending her life story and personal stories with her spiritual experiences, Francis offers evidence of a spiritual force she believes has communicated with humans and the living world since their beginning. Geared toward Christians who find it difficult to accept all the traditional teachings of their church and for the wandering flock who are looking for some spiritual guidance in a modern world, God is No Delusion shares both a message from God and a warning about the forces of evil.
Richard Dawkins, biologist and best-selling author, claims that belief in God is a "delusion" and that "religion" harms society. Dawkins contends that he has reason and evidence on his side, and he dismisses faith as unfounded, even irrational. Dominican Thomas Crean tackles Dawkins' claims head-on. He presents straightforward arguments for God's existence, and he uses reason and evidence to defend such things as miracles and the authority of the Bible. He also shows how God is important for a coherent understanding of morality, and why Dawkins' approach winds up reducing morality to the individual's subjective likes and dislikes. By demonstrating how Dawkins' criticisms rest on misunderstandings, superficial readings, poor argumentation, a lack of historical awareness, and not a little prejudice, Crean reveals Dawkins to be out of his philosophical and theological depth, and his case against God to be fundamentally flawed.
Both atheistic materialism and organized religion have been the two great forces which have had the greatest mind control over Western Civilization’s perception and value system. Both systems have used their power to keep humanity in subjugation and slavery through the tactics of fear and terror. Both systems have denied humanity the dignity of its true Divine identity. When social systems exist for the sole purpose of strengthening and propelling their own self-interest rather the welfare of its citizens, then the matrix in which humanity lives becomes corrupt and decadent. When a people are denied the understanding of their own self-concept as a unique person and a child of God, they become disassociated from their own holographic identity. Nature does not tolerate a vacuum. Dystopia rushes in to replace the void caused by the split or the dualism which both atheism and organized religion cause in world which some non-local Supreme Intelligence created for a more noble purpose. Atheistic Materialism denies the existence of A Creator and is pessimistically Nihilistic. Organized Religion while admitting an Omega or an absolute, divides the soul from the body and turns this world Into a vale of tears. The New Science of Quantum Physics teaches that the Whole is greater than the sum of its parts and the substrata of the atom is consciousness. Quantum teaches the Cosmos is one. There is no separation. All that exists is linked together in the one reality of interdependence, interconnection and interrelationship. Consciousness is eternal. It carries on after the atoms of our bodies have deteriorated and gone. Consciousness tells us, that despite the momentary reality of our bodies we are spiritually eternal. Materialistic Atheism is temporary and built of the false promise of economy and profit. It proposes tragedy instead of ecstasy. Consciousness joins body and soul together. Life in this world in other world is a continuum. Life here is sacred and must be lived in
The Rapture Delusion shatters popular myths, breaks the spell of false theories, reveals solid biblical truth, and will help prepare you for "the end of the world." Addressing His Church, Jesus Himself declared, "All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world" (Matthew 28:18-20 KJV). Many Christian prophecy books and end-time movies predict that all "true believers" will miss the end because they will vanish in an event called "the Rapture"-when they will supposedly be taken to Heaven early-while those left behind will be forced to endure seven nightmarish years of apocalyptic terror during the time of the Antichrist. Is this true? What does the Bible really say? About the end times Jesus Christ warned,"Take heed that no man deceive you" (Matthew 24:4). Paul also predicted that many would be ensnared by "strong delusion" because "they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved" (2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 KJV). The future is upon us-but it will be different from what the majority expect. Get ready for it.
We are a Bible-believing country. History is repeating itself and reminding us of our mission, for me a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. My job is not over; neither is my education. I am a child of the change from twentieth century to twenty-first century. Have I educated my children on God's love and will for his children? At seventy-seven, I am of the Josh generation and 2008, the beginning of change to pass the education of the Benjia generation to you and confine the Miletus generation must do. Over the thousand years in front of us, our political system is melting away for Jesus to come back. Before the second coming of Christ can return, there are certain that most he fulfilled. God has always prepared his people for the wars against our sinful nature. We are hung tested. And must be taught about the delusion we are seeing with our eye and hearing with our ears today. Satan is not a man in a red suit with horns and a tail. He is a flesh and human. He is a man of sin. The time of the millennium age is around the bend. I believe the Benji generation is here. Jesus began his ministry at age twelve. Jewish children have their coming of age when they reach thirteen. We are given forty years as probation. 13 + 40=53 A. Gives the timeline of our testing. B. It tells us about the world falling away from his protection. C. It tells us who our leadership was in Judges 3 to 4. The reward was forty years of peace. We are living now in this period of testing. And have been tricked by an evil spirit. And did not pass the test of a world of nations who are guilty being drained by an evil spirit. And fail to recognize that God has not been called to lead us out of harm's way. God is not and will not be forgotten. There is a rement. And our prayers will be heard. And the promise of Isaiah 19: 1 will be kept. Because we have been beset with Isaiah 19 verse 1 to 25. For those living in fear I believe the world as a whole is Egypt (Warknus) and we are living in fear of

It's an element that is often overlooked, the Apostle Paul didn't convert to a new religion or change gods on the road to Damascus. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God Paul so adamantly defended, was the same God who revealed himself in flesh, in the person of Jesus. His encounter with Jesus left him to conclude that his understanding and depictions of God were, at best incomplete and veiled. The method by which he learned to interpret Scripture, from those within the tradition of his fathers, had only come to reveal the mere shadows of the True Substance from which it was cast forth. Paul would spend the rest of his life working out these implications in his writings. He would have to reexamine Scripture, realigning his line of sight with the God of his youth in light of his glory revealed in the face of Jesus. Perhaps its time once again, like Paul, that we need a fresh encounter with the mystery of Christ. Maybe we can stop reaching out to stabilize some of the sacred arks in our imagination every time they begin to lose footing and let go, allowing them to fall to the earth where they belong. In Stained Glass Delusion, author Jeffrey Shafer offers us an invitation to join him as he embarks on a journey to rediscover the character and nature of the God revealed in Jesus. Shafer will examine some of the myths that poison our understanding of God's character and where they originated. He explores the history and formation of the Bible, our problems with, and abuses of its interpretation as well as an in-depth look at the subject of atonement; how the early Church Fathers viewed the cross compared to the later, modern arguments of the Reformers. Many find it easy to believe that Jesus looks like God. This book offers an invitation to explore the possibility that God has always looked like Jesus.
'Timely, impassioned and brilliantly argued' Rod Liddle, Sunday Times 'A spirited and exhilarating read' Joan Bakewell, Guardian Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry and abuses children. The God Delusion is a brilliantly argued, fascinating polemic that will be required reading for anyone interested in this most emotional and important subject.
