Description : A new approach to the early history of Christianity to the fourth century. Beginning with a revealing study of God's purpose for the Jews and for mankind. It explores in depth the origins of religion and the virtually unknown (unmentioned) conflict between the destiny of Rome from Virgil and the destiny of the Jews from the Bible. A detailed examination of the civil laws of the Jews is contrasted with traditional religions, giving remarkable new insights into the beliefs and practices of the first Hebrew Christians. It explores the unlikely conversion of Constantine, the surprising true origin of his amazing sign and it's role in the restoration of his church. To understand Constantine and his church, we need to understand Virgil. The book then questions how far the church adopted Christianity as the earliest disciples knew it, and how far the early faith was knowingly replaced by Constantine's religion, and why. It explores the conflict between discipleship and church as two distinct systems, one chosen by Jesus, the other a long standing Roman tradition. It re-examines the life and teachings of Jesus based on a Hebrew perspective and the relevance of Christianity today and provides an outline for tomorrow based on the hitherto unknown teachings of the early disciples. It also takes a compelling new look at the question of the divinity of Christ in the light of Hebrew beliefs in contrast to the influence of Virgil. Along the way, the book discusses a number of crucial themes, such as the real identity of Joseph Arimathea, the other name of John the Baptist, and the possibility that Jesus was known by several different names in his own time. It also reviews (and answers fully) the new persecution of Christianity, the church D state question, and the many new theories and criticisms aimed against Christianity in the post modern world.

Description : Nearly 2000 years ago, the Good News of the Kingdom began to be preached throughout the Mediterranean by a carpenter’s son, Jesus of Nazareth. His teachings restored dignity and religious freedom to all who heeded his message of hope. However, within 400 years, Christianity had lost its way and reverted back to the old ways of clergy/laity distinctions. Ecclesiastical authority brought divisions and sects, and pitted Christian against Christian. The individual disciple lost his spiritual autonomy and was relegated to a position of servitude to a church rather than as a dynamic free son of God. As a result, the Good News as Jesus conceived it has to a large extent been submerged under so much dogma. Christianity today languishes for lack of a new vision of Jesus’ life and the religion that he practiced. Modern man will refuse to accept a religion which is inconsistent with known facts and out of harmony with his highest conceptions of truth, beauty, and goodness. He will not acquiesce to a religion based on supers-titious bondage and religious fear. Therefore, what is needed is a new revelation of Jesus’ life illuminated with a new understanding of his Good News of eternal salvation. The purpose of this book is to reintroduce Jesus to mankind. The world needs new leaders, spiritual men and women who will dare to depend solely on Jesus and his incomparable teachings. Until then, worldwide harmony will continue to be the illusive dream of a hopeful minority instead of the tangible reality of a God-knowing human race. And when this Good News is preached in all the inhabited earth, the end of wickedness, sorrow, distress, and anguish will come. (Matthew 24:14)

Description : "What are Christians to make of their mission in an pluralistic world?" asks Paul F. Knitter, author of the landmark work in interfaith dialogue No Other Name? As a recognized scholar and participant in interfaith dialogue, Knitter is in a unique position to explore the key concept of what Christian mission must entail in a world that will remain a world of many religious faiths for the foreseeable future. From the first chapter of Jesus and the Other Names, which recounts his own theological and dialogical odyssey, Knitter constructs what he calls a "correlational, globally-responsible theology of religions" as a necessary correction to traditional pluralist and exclusivist approaches. By anticipating and addressing his critics - both conservative and liberal - Knitter makes a powerful argument for a reconstruction of mission faithful to the Christian imperative and dynamically attuned to the plurality of the world. Jesus and the Other Names will give pause to those who believe Christian mission can be carried on as it was in the modern era. Sure to inspire debate as well as dialogue it offers a more humble, but perhaps more "Christic", postmodern approach to mission in the new millennium that has little to do with earthly glory and nothing to do with the sense of cultural superiority that has so often - and often so tragicallyaccompanied modern missionary movements. Theologians, missiologists, Christian historians, can all benefit from its thoughtful and timely message.

Description : There’s proof a man named Jesus of Nazareth once walked the earth, but opinions on exactly who he was can vary widely. Was he really the Son of God, or was he a nice guy who did some positive things on earth, or was he possibly an unstable man? And how can you know for sure what is true and what is false when it comes to what you’ve read or been told? Lee Strobel decided to investigate the real, historical Jesus and gather irrefutable evidence on everything connected to him so you can discover the biblical truth for yourself. A great prophet. A rebel. The Messiah. A crazy lunatic. Someone who never existed at all. All of these phrases describe different people’s views of Jesus, and various ancient documents have been discovered and various books have been written by scholars that seem to support each version. Not to mention all the arguments that say the Bible can’t be trusted as a reliable source of information on Jesus. So what are you supposed to believe—and why? Lee Strobel wanted the provable, undeniable truth, so he decided to return to the investigation he began in The Case for Christ and explore a variety of new angles to find out once and for all who the real Jesus was. Inside are interviews with numerous biblical scholars and once-zealous doubters about the most common arguments against Jesus, discussions of how reliable Scripture really is, examinations of unearthed ancient texts that appear to counter the gospels, and the evidence that shows who Jesus really was and continues to be in our world. Explore the case for yourself and decide: Is the real Jesus the one the Bible has proclaimed all along? The Case for the Real Jesus Student Edition: Presents the arguments for and against who Jesus is that teens and young adults thirteen and up often ask and encounter so they can see the real facts Uses logic and solid information to examine why Christians believe what they do Can be used in the classroom, in group studies, or as part of a religious studies or comparison class Contains infographics and charts to make the concepts clear Pairs well with The Case for Christ Student Edition, The Case for a Creator Student Edition, The Case for Faith Student Edition, and The Case for Miracles Student Edition

Description : God is our Lord and Master and we are but his servants. Our duty is to serve him, not he to serve us. Whenever we face God in our prayers, may it be for reason there's something good we have done lately that we wanted to report to him, more than we have some new problems again for him to solve or new wishes again for him to grant. If we were to treat God like our ever faithful and loving Servant who is always there at our beck and call, then on Judgment Day, instead of him judging us on things we have done for him, it is we who would be judging him on things we have asked from him but which he did not do or grant. God is all powerful: There is nothing we will ask from him he cannot give or do. God is all loving and merciful: There is nothing we need in life he will not have the heart to give or do. But God is also ever fair and just: There are things we would be asking from him that he will not oblige us, lest by doing so he will be spoiling us. Amen.

Description : Some have asked, "Who are you to write a book that questions the honesty of the Christian religion built upon Jesus and the cross?" I say because I know today that Christianity is a lie! The fake Jesus they created with theology is not real: they are both lies. The real Jesus (Yeshua) taught love for all (including ones enemies). He taught of an experiential, personally knowable Divine connection deep inside. He never taught the concepts of guilt, shame, fear, or the idea of "sin" that angers some god up in the sky. It's time to give up Christianity but keep the real Jesus (Yeshua) and the healing power of the Aramaic language that he spoke. The Greek, Latin, and English are only purposeful distortions of what he taught. The church "fathers" made sure they were needed by humanity as spiritual authorities, so their fabricated Bible became their tool of control. There is no such thing as a "spiritual authority." Dogma holds people in ignorance, fear, and dependence. The proof of this is seen in the fact that very soon after the Roman Catholic Church was established at the Council of Nicaea in 325CE (1,700 years ago) they began to burn tens of thousands of people at the stake. Why? Because the people didn't accept their newly made-up dogma. The newly formed church demanded that their fabrications were suddenly "the only truth," and everyone must conform or else. Christianity would never have survived without their violent actions of the next twelve centuries. Today their violence is seen in their actions against the LGBT community, women, and other races. They also decided what was to be included in a new book that they put together and then labeled it God's Word or The Holy Bible to make it sound authentic. It is neither! Their Bible even says it's okay to lie in order to promote the kingdom of heaven. It says that unicorns are real, and that it is permissible to kidnap and rape virgins-as well as many other very strange ideas. But the church demands that people believe in their "kingdom"-not the one Jesus taught was already within each human being. I write to expose the lies of fake Christianity and reveal the Aramaic Jesus and his words that the church has never known. HIs words have been lost to humanity for over 1,900 years. To know what he said and how to experience it renders the church as nothing but a useless appendage with absolutely zero authority of any kind. I've studied the Aramaic now for fifteen years and counting. I share this everywhere I go. Your turn to heal awaits your discovery of the real Jesus too. Your most Beautiful Self awaits your choice to be who you really are, not what others have told you that you are.

Description : The title of this book "The Imprisoned Jesus" testifies to the theme of this book and the warning given by Jesus to us against the debut of the unscriptural jesus in the last days. He warned us against believing the one who would appear in the desert or who would appear in the house. Though many missionaries from America went out of America into all the corners of the earth, presented the true Jesus and died in those nations for Him, many charismatic ministers in America had begun to preach another jesus (Antichrist) from 60s onwards and presented him on their stages that made the people fall, dance and shout hysterically. They put the scriptural Jesus in the prison. Christian preachers in other nations like India have also started preaching the unscriptural jesus while true ministers including those ministers as narrated by the author in Chapter 4 to 8 have encountered and experienced the scriptural Jesus in their lives and ministries. They are Gnanamani Ammal, (an illiterate woman, a house wife whose life was full of persecution, struggle and hardships till her death), Sadhu Kandiah Anand, (an Indian hermit on the saffron robes who lived and died in the Himalayan Kingdom), Sadhu Kochu Kunju, (another apostolic minister from Kerala who also lived as a hermit), John Hyde, (American Presbyterian missionary known as the Praying Hyde of India) and Arthur Margoschis of England who lived and died in India. There is a reference to John Hyde in the first fiction. In the other fictions, the author takes us to the Darbar of Satan where he speaks about the true ministers of the gospel and the ministers of the gospel deceived by him, and then to another interesting fiction where John the Baptist was got resurrected in his body and visited America along with archangel Gabriel during the Christmas season. In this fiction, the author describes the corruption of Christian ministries and the irrelevance of the prophetic ministry of condemnation by John the Baptist in the New Testament era.JESUS ON A DONKEY (Fiction No.1): If Jesus were with us today in flesh, the modern Pharisees and Scribes would not allow him entry into their denominational churches because Jesus would not come to their churches in a limousine but seated on a donkey prophetically. Prophetically, Jesus, the Prophet from Nazareth of Galilee (Matt.21:11) rides on a donkey to tell the Christian world that a messenger of God or a prophet of God has to be humble as a donkey and to expose the corruption in His House which is converted into a den of robbers......SATAN'S DARBAR (fiction No. 2): .Though it is a fictional story, as a writer, I have attempted to drive home the truth through this fiction. This is like the fiction of "Pilgrim's Progress" authored by John Banyan. Let us assume that Satan is the most intelligent creature who knows the Bible and the Church history thoroughly in a manner better than we do. Let us also assume that Satan, though a liar, always speaks the truth to his own soldiers engaged in a war against God and His angels. Please note that I do not judge the ministry of any minister of God but only blow the trumpet and give a prophetic warning to the Body of Christ. ....RESURRECTION OF JOHN THE BAPTIST (fiction No.3)This is a fiction which is intended to bring home some hard truths as the Holy Spirit taught the author. John the Baptist is now resurrected from the dead. He is taken by the angel Gabriel to the house of a prophetic minister in Santa Cruz, America for resuming his ministry from the time he was beheaded by Herod.....

Description : Let us examine in more detail the doctrine of the virgin and the immaculate conception. This dogma is one of the basic religions of Christianity and was established in 431 at the Third Ecumenical Council in Ephesus, that is, four centuries after the death of Jesus. The dogma is based on deliberately made inaccurate translations, replaced words and correspondingly free interpretations of the original texts of the prophets of Tanah (Old Testament). This is, perhaps, the most essential and extremely important example of a purposeful replacement of words that has led to erroneous translations and false interpretations of the long religious history of mankind. The dogma of virginity and immoral conception, as we have said, is one of the main dogmas on which Christianity is based. This dogma claims that a virgin gave birth to the Messiah Jesus Christ, through miraculous and blameless conception in which God Himself participated through the Holy Spirit, and thanks to the supernatural act appeared to the world and the Son of God. This so basic dogma in Christianity is written in the Matthew Gospel as follows: „The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”) – (Matthew 1:23). Thus the Christian religion “proves” one of its main dogmas, referring to a text in the Book of Isaiah (the prophet Yeshaiahu Ben Amotz) in which the prophet prophesied the immaculate conception of Jesus Christ: „Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14). At first glance, there is no difference, but in fact only one word that is specifically altered changes the whole meaning not only of the text but also of the Christian dogma as a whole. The word that is written in the Christian New Testament is the Greek parthenos (virgin), while in the original Hebrew text of Isaiah the prophet in the Old Testament is the word alma (העלמה – young woman)! This word was written initially personally by the Prophet as an alma (a young woman), who apparently is neither a virgin. It is well-known that the dogma of immaculate conception holds a great deal of the ideology of Christian doctrine. Deprived of this dogma, the doctrine is deprived of God the Son, and therefore Jesus becomes an ordinary man.

Description : Nevertheless, it is correct." Christian Antisemitism traces, over two millennia, the growing domination of Western culture by the Christian "myth" (as Nicholls calls it) about the Jews, and shows how it still exerts a major influence even on the secularized "post-Christian world." Nicholls shows, through scrupulous research and documentation, that the myth of the Jews as Christ-killers has powered anti-Judaism and antisemitism throughout the centuries. Nicholls clearly illustrates that this myth is present in the New Testament and that "it has not yet died under the impact of modern critical history." Also included in this remarkable volume is Nicholls' research regarding the Jewishness of Jesus. He writes, "Historical scholarship now permits us to affirm with confidence that Jesus of Nazareth was a faithful and observant Jew who lived by the Torah and taught nothing against his own people and their faith ...

Description : Responsio Iudaeorum’s “CASE AGAINST THE GOSPELS’ FALSE ACCUSATION OF THE JEWS,” relies on a significant advance in Gospel analysis to achieve certainty about what actually happened to Jesus, and who was responsible. Based on a methodology he has developed and published over the last decade, Abram Epstein states: “No Jews acting from theological motive conspired to kill Jesus, nor did they participate in his arrest, his guilty verdict, or his state-sanctioned murder on the cross.” Furthermore, Epstein argues that the Christian clergy’s recent ecumenical acts of “forgiveness” off er no acquittal, and so reinforce the defamation, concealing beneath the veil of good will, an indoctrinated belief in Jewish guilt for conspiring and participating in Jesus’ crucifixion.

Description : Noticing how the world today is sinking into darkness as it did many times before through its history, seeing how the Muslims are working hard against the message that Allah sent, how Christian created their own preaching and faith, how the Jews worked all of their lives against the LORD and the men that the LORD sent. Mohammad Fawzi saw the need to do something, and this book is the first of many he is working on in hope he may be able to correct the mistakes done today from all the beliefs, he will also deal with the darkness of the Atheists. In a world full with darkness and evil done against the LORD, the need for those who have the truth is increasing, not the false truth some claim to have, but the genuine truth that is supported with solid proofs and convincing evidence. It is time for those who can do something to step up.
