“intrinsic unity of the Old and the New Covenant”
The same "religious beliefs" defended by the pagans in their debates against and with many early Gentile Church Fathers are yet today the very backbone of Gentile Christianity and their doctrines! What still escapes most Christians today is that historical investigation of many of these "debates" provides the multiple evidence that testifies to the fact that the early Christians and Church Fathers acknowledged that they had in fact copied the pagans and their beliefs and merged such beliefs into the "Christian faith." The New Testament is interspersed with the dogmas and doctrines originating in Sun Worship and without such knowledge you read them as if it were "Divine Revelations." The Christian faith today is nothing more but an evolution of “Sun” worship which over time was transfigured into “Son” worship.” (See, David Fideler, Jesus Christ, Sun of God).
Roma Invicta was the empire of Sol Invictus or Kosmokrator (Ruler of the Cosmos) and as such was “destined to rule the whole world” (Virgil). Virgil was a Copernicus of the Roman Empire. So it comes as no surprise that when Rome succumbed to Jesus, it did not embrace him as a Jewish teacher but as the sun god Helios, whose halo used to symbolize divine rank of Roman emperors. For centuries the Roman propaganda spread Cicero's opinion about Jews that they were “a nation born to eternal servitude” (nationibus nati servituti). Therefore from the historical Jahweh and Jesus of the Jews Rome wanted to dissociate itself once for all. Emperor Constantine wanted to have nothing in common with this “odious people” (meaning Jews) and replaced the God of the Bible with philosophical substance (matter) in the Nicene Creed. Philosopher Spinoza used to pray to Substance. The French Jesuit Teilhard de Chardin, the philosophical mentor of Father Karol Wojtyla praised Jesus as heart of matter. http://www.trinitygalv.org/pictures/Windows/trinitywindow.html
John Paul II rejected the Historical Jesus
The Pope rejected Jesus who taught in his Sermon on the Mount: “Di not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill” (Mt 5:17). In Matthew 15:1-4 Jesus says: “For God commanded saying, “Honor your father and your mother”; and, “He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death” Jesus didn't say, “For Moses commanded...” He said “God commanded” this. Three times in verses 3 through 6 he says that these verses are God;s commandments, not the commandments of any man. Paul described Scripture with the term theopneustos meaning God-breathed i.e. it came directly from God. In other words, the Hebrew Scriptures, said Paul, came directly from the very breath and Spirit of God.
“John Paul II: 'The Bible is a myth'” Sunday Visitor, Oct. 21, 1984
A person who was in school with Stalin, said of what they were taught: “…in order to disabuse the minds of our seminary students of the myth that the world was created in six days, we had to acquaint ourselves with the geological origin and age of the earth, and be able to prove them in argument; we had to familiarize ourselves with Darwin’s teachings.” So, in plain words, the Church seminary J. Stalin attended labored to get the Bible’s explanation for origins out of kids’ hearts and fill those same with the evolutionary explanation for origins.
2 Pt 1:16-18 Peter says that Christ wasn't a myth, He wasn't “a cunningly devised fable.” “We are not following cleverly devised legends...we actually saw his majesty with our own eyes. For he received honor and glory from God the father that a voice came out of the splendor which dazzles human eyes: “This is my Son, my beloved! He Is my Chosen!
Jesus Himself would say to John Paul II: “O foolish one, and slow of heart to believe in all that the Prophets have spoken,” exactly, like he said to his disciples in Luke 24:25
New book shows Pope’s commitment to Jews and Israel
Light of the World – the Pope, the Church and Signs of the Times was launched this week in eight languages as “the first personal and direct interview” with a pope ever.
He makes no attempt to hide the uncertainties and errors behind the series of crises that have marked his papacy, optimistically transforming them into a learning process from which he believes the Church will benefit.
Interspersed throughout the book – amidst talk about his world vision, self-doubts about his public role, ecology, God, good and evil, original sin, the contradictions of modernity and contemporary atheism, sex, bioethics, AIDS, condoms, abuse scandals, mission, ecumenism and interreligious relations – Benedict XVI speaks extensively on issues related to Israel and the Jewish world, confirming his unwavering personal commitment to both. He also explains the reasons for his conviction that Pius XII was “one of the great righteous men,” but without advocating further moves toward proclaiming him a saint.
Ratzinger holds true to his belief in the “intrinsic unity of the Old and the New Covenant”, the two parts of the Holy Scripture,” an awareness he says he acquired “since the very first day” of his early theological studies. He first made his theological views on Judaism public in 1990, when as the cardinal in charge of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, he was interviewed in “Jews and Judaism in the Universal Catechism,” a piece published simultaneously in Studi Cattolici (in Italian) and Midstream (in English).
He says, “We can read the New Testament only together with what preceded it, otherwise, we would completely fail to understand it.”
Indeed, the New Testament quotes or alludes to 300 Old Testament passages. Jesus and his apostles frequently quoted from the Old Testament. Those New Testament quotes provide some of the most valuable and interesting verses in all the Bible, for two reasons. The New Testament quotes give God-approved commentaries on the Old Testament. The Old Testament passages shed light on the meanings of difficult New Testament verses.)
These affirmations implicitly contradict and override the statements made by individual Middle East Bishops at the recent Vatican Synod regarding Christ’s having “annulled” the Abrahamic covenant.
Peshitta vs. The Gospels in Greek
The canonical Gospel of Mark 1:21-22 describes Jesus' lecture in the Temple as follows: “And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the Sabbath day he (Jesus) entered into the synagogue, and taught. And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.” End of quote.
But the verse 51 of the Syrian version (Peshitta) of Luke 2 elaborates on the incident of the Gospel of Mark so that it will be reverberating throughout the following centuries:
“And philosopher who was there present, a skillful astronomer, asked Jesus the Lord whether he studied astronomy. And the Lord Jesus answered him and explained the number of the spheres, and of the heavenly bodies, their nature and operations, their oppositions; their aspects, triangular, square and sextile; their course, direct or retrograde; the twenty-four and sixtieth of twenty-fourths, and other things beyond the reach of reason.”
John Paul II by his rehabilitation of two philosophical doctrines took side with the Assyrian Church of the East and other Aramaic-speaking churches that have historically claimed that the Peshitta is the original text of the New Testament. With the rise of the Internet, Aramaic primacists began to pool arguments in favor of their case (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aramaic_primacy). In the John Paul II's policy, the vision of Syro-Palestine on the ruins of Israel had the same priority as in the era of emperor Hadrian.
Stressing “intrinsic unity of the Old and the New Covenant” means that Benedict XVI rejected the heliocentric doctrine of Peshitta and remained true to the geocentric lore of the Hebrew Bible.
Turning to a personal and historic perspective, he says, “As Germans, we were of course shaken by what had happened in the Third Reich, which gave us a special reason to look with humility and shame and with love, upon the People of Israel.”
From Copernicus to Hitler
“In the center of all rests the Sun. For who would place this lamp of a very beautiful temple in another or better place than this from which it can illuminate everything at the same time? As a matter of fact, not unhappily do some call it the lantern, others, the mind, and still others, the Leader of the World. Trismegistus calls it ‘visible God’; Sophocles’ Electra, ‘that which gazes upon all things.’ And so the sun, as if resting on a kingly throne, governs the family of stars (like Zeu pater) which wheel around.” De revolutionibus I, 10
The website Wotan – the Sun God (http://www.artgemeinschaft.org/ewotsun.htm) sums up the pagan solar theology of Copernicus as follows: “The universe, as a whole, is a spiritually living being – the ultimately supreme God, if you will…The center of our solar system is, of course, the sun. What modern man often overlooks is the fact that the sun is more than the physical center; it is also the spiritual center. From the earliest times, man has recognized the various sources and centers of this spiritual energy from the sun, and has expressed this recognition in a process of deification of the natural features of the world and its surroundings. Wotan represents the Teutonic attempt to deify and understand this primary source of spiritual energy…For a Christian, the sun represents a stern but protective Father who will save his worshipers if they will only accept him and his ways…Of all the peoples of the world, the Teutons are alone in having experienced the miraculous and sublime process of evolutionary change that has enabled them to see the sun’s energy as alive, evolving, and creative. Unfortunately for humanity, Wotan’s people lacked the courage of their convictions; they opted for easy road, and accepted Christianity. Now, after centuries of betrayal, hypocrisy and revealed falsehood, his people are rejecting the Judeo-Christian lie and turning to their inner spiritual selves for truth and understanding – and they are finding Wotan. There can be no more impressive demonstration of the creative power of Wotan than this. We stand on the threshold of a new era, and what we see before us is the universe. As we carry the banner of our Sun’s spiritual energy to the farthest galaxies, we can take pride in the knowledge that we are the bringers of the seed of evolution, creativity, honor, and dignity.” Copernicus was a Renaissance Nazi!
