Saul (Paul of Tarsus) the Original Liar

 (The following is excerpted from Dr. Husfelt’s forthcoming book The Greatest Lie Ever Told - a Manifesto for a Religious Revolution and a New Consciousness)

As often as Jesus’ name is invoked and chatted about by Christians and the Church, it is easy to understand why the majority of people believe that Christianity is Jesus Christianity. But this is not the case; Christianity is pure and simple Pauline Christianity:

... Who was it who declared Jesus to be “both Lord and Christ”? 

That it was not Jesus himself we may safely conclude from the few relics of his teaching that have been preserved for us. Nor is it possible to believe that he would have tolerated any such distinction to be conferred on himself by others. That would have meant the negation of all that he taught and strove and died for….

 

Paul… the author of the Christ-myth and the founder of Christianity. It is he… who first conceived the idea that Jesus was Christ, and who built so vast a superstructure on so weak a foundation.[i]

 

For reasons unknown, possibly for power and money (seems like the Roman Catholic Church is very wealthy), Paul concocted a lie about Jesus and his teachings. In turn, he made himself the mouthpiece and the spreader of the ‘good news’ of salvation. But in reality, he was just a spreader of lies: 

Paul, if not the actual originator of the Christ-myth, was certainly the author of the Christian scheme of salvation, which in every essential is the antithesis of the teachings of Jesus….

 

Whether we compare their lives, doctrines, or trains of thought, Paul is in every respect the antithesis of Jesus. Paul was austere, narrow-minded, bigoted, doctrinaire, superstitious, and intolerant. Jesus was in every respect the opposite.

 

Paul cursed those who dared differ from him; Jesus enjoined “love your enemies”—and practiced it, too.

 

“He that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” was the formula of Jesus; “He that believeth on the Lord Jesus Christ” was the formula of Paul….

 

Paul’s God was jealous and vindictive (Heb. Iv. 12), from whose wrath he endeavoured to save the elect. Jesus knew no such vindictive deity. His God was a loving Father, who sendeth his rain on the just and on the unjust, and who “is kind even to the unthankful and to the evil” (Luke vi. 35)….

 

Paul’s reasoning is always specious, superficial, and plausible. Jesus appealed to reason and to the facts of nature….

 

Paul had practically abandoned all hope in a possible uplifting of mankind. “There is none righteous, no, not one.” Jesus on the other hand, believed in the potential goodness of man: “Ye are the salt of the earth”; “Ye are the light of the world.” “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” ….

 

Thus we might go on showing that every doctrine or dogma of Paul was a negation of something which Jesus enjoined on mankind as necessary for their regeneration.

 

Indeed, if it were not for the misuse of terms, Paul might (mutatis mutandis) be described as the veritable “Anti-Christ,” in the sense of being an adversary of true religion.[ii]

According to The Hiram Key by Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas, “doctrines which Paul invented were totally different from the revolutionary egalitarian ideas of Jesus. Jesus had been a revolutionary and a pioneer of democratic thinking. Thanks to Paul and the non-Jewish hierarchical cult that he developed, Jesus’ teachings were buried and forgotten.”[iii]
