Holy Scripture [Jun. 21st, 2011|11:23 am]
Tony Grist
I attended theological college in the 1970s- where I was taught that the old testament is unhistorical, the gospels utterly unreliable, the sayings of Jesus plagiarised  and the whole Bible (though it wasn't put that way) a crazy patchwork of lies and forgeries.  I was then expected to go out and preach from it as if I believed it was the Word of God.

It did my head in. 

When I became a witch I made a virtue out of there being no such thing as a Wiccan scripture.

Re: christianity

The clergy who taught me were decent people. They had ways of disguising from themselves the iniquity- and absurdity- of what they were doing.

Christianity is a cult of the dying and rising god- modelled on the pre-existing cults of Mithras, Horus etc, etc. The sayings of Jesus are plagiarised from all over the place. Jesus himself probably never existed.

Google "Jesus plagiarism" and you'll find various sites that list the sources from which the Christian mythos was cobbled together
