When so-called scientists approach the gospel without any faith and “dissect” it, only something disastrous emerges in the end. Apparently it is not enough for the “scientists” to present the reports contained in the Holy Scripture in an incoherent manner in order to achieve the desired portrayal of the gospel’s lack of credibility. Twists of meaning and misleading suggestions are also necessary.
The “liberal theologian” from the ordinary Catholic and Protestant universities or colleges is, in principle, a spiritual impostor (Info). The intellectual and spiritual outpourings of these scholars have nothing at all in common with the Gospel, i.e. the Word of God. Theology (Theos = God + Logos = Word) is simply a fake label for notorious unbelief. This is especially true from the camp of Catholic theology, where this church was simply the continuation of ancient Roman paganism (spiritism, occultism, sun worship, etc.) decorated with an introduced “water-drip baptism” and some Christian-looking labels.
Apostasy of the churches has occurred
The Bible predicts the apostasy of church institutions, as in 2 Thessalonians 2:3:
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”. The progress is shown by the views of two so-called theologians with professorships at different universities. In the meantime there are only external differences between the Catholic and Protestant churches. The daughters have all returned to their mother.
The views of a Catholic “theologians”
The Internet portal of the Catholic Church (katholisch.de) conducted a conversation with Thomas Johann Bauer, professor of exegesis and theology of the New Testament at the University of Erfurt. On the occasion of the current Lent, the editorial team wanted to know how Jesus Christ dealt with fasting and asceticism.
Jesus’ Lent is a legend
According to the Catholic “theologian,” Jesus Christ enjoyed a “joyful meal” more than asceticism. When asked how Jesus himself observed the fast, Bauer pointed out that Jesus lived according to Jewish tradition and therefore it cannot be ruled out that he also fasted. Although the Bible reports a 40-day period of fasting and prayer in the desert, this must be understood more “legendarily than historically.” Jesus was generally far removed from an ascetic way of life. The “theologian” points to passages in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke from which the accusation has been handed down that Jesus was a “eater and drunkard.”.
Jesus the glutton and drunkard
The professor obviously cannot imagine fasting in prayer for 40 days in the desert. Therefore, from his point of view, this must be a legend, a fairy tale. So much for his faith. He would also have to consistently consider Moses’ 40-day stay on Mount Sinai to be a “fable”. This would have reached the point where he would have to explain which passages of the Bible were a report and which were pure legends.
His method of discrediting people by declaring an accusation as a fact is downright typical for today. For example, in Luke 7:34, Jesus Christ accused the Pharisees of calling him a “glutton and winebibber” just because he ate a meal with the unpopular tax collectors. John the Baptist was also targeted by the Pharisees. They assumed that John was possessed by a demon because of his diet.
In this way, the catholic “theology” positions itself shoulder to shoulder with the Pharisees.
Fasting is an expression of solidarity
Of course, selected narratives should not be missing for explanations of “Christian fasting”. Bauer also sees today’s fasting as a sign of solidarity with the “poor, weak and sick” and justifies this with the quote, which is completely taken out of context: “I want mercy, not sacrifice” according to Matthew 9:13. Read in context, Jesus Christ again responded to the arguments of the Pharisees. As healers, these should not go to the healthy, but to the sick, with words: “But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
Fasting is good against climate change
The “solidarity” narrative would have already been dealt with. This was also followed by the connection constructed by Bauer between fasting and climate change. Fasting means abstaining from meat and this improves the “ecological footprint”. Fasting is also well received in a society that lives “with the fear of climate change.”
The views of a Protestant theologian
The same Catholic portal also had a conversation with the “theologian” Wolfgang Reinbold, professor of the New Testament at the Georg-August University of Göttingen and representative for church and Islam at the Evangelical Lutheran Regional Church of Hanover. The editorial team wanted to know from Reinbold whether Jesus actually lived or whether it was just a myth.
The existence of Jesus can hardly be denied
The professor mentioned that this question was intensively discussed around 100 years ago. At that time there were many scientists who denied the real existence of Jesus. Christianity is a myth and a “historical origin was subsequently constructed” for it. Just as novels, for example, were later misunderstood as factual reports.
Today there are very few scientists left who do not believe in the real existence of Jesus. There are now numerous extra-biblical records of His existence.
Reinbold cited the writings of the Roman historians Tacitus and Suetonius, as well as the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus, as examples. The condemnation of Jesus by the governor Pontius Pilate and the crucifixion of Jesus are hard historical facts. However, much of the Bible is still historically uncertain. There would be a discrepancy with the statements about the time of Jesus’ birth. King Herod and the Roman governor Quirinius (Greek: Kyrenius) appear in the “Christmas Stories”.
But this doesn’t fit together. Herod died in 4 BC, while Quirinius took office in 6 AD. According to Reinbold, the scientists have already racked their brains over how this could be reconciled. Nevertheless, Jesus lived and this “can hardly be disputed,” according to the “theologian.”
Jesus AS Son of God
Another question from the Catholic portal is introduced suggestively: “Christians worship Jesus as the Son of God”. The citation should correctly have read “Christians worship Jesus, the Son of God.” Because if someone allows themselves the “cultural appropriation” of walking around “as” an Indian at the next carnival, then they may look like one, but they “aren’t” one. Jesus Christ does not act as if, He IS the Son of God. If the “cleric” were to look into the Bible, he could also discover Isaiah 9:6:
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
and also be able to read 1 Timothy 3:16:
“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”
John the Baptist was the teacher of Jesus
Reinbold should also give answers about what his work, education, relationships and his family were like. After the professor mentioned the individual key points “carpenter” and “siblings,” he emphasized that Jesus did not always have good relationships with his family. Jesus was not married and often behaved differently than “parents would want their children to behave.” According to the “theologian”, John the Baptist could be considered Jesus’ teacher. Jesus was baptized by John and always spoke about him respectfully. Jesus was a master of “parables and stories” and “for him” the kingdom of God was present.
Adventurous views to consider John as the teacher of Jesus, who was only 6 months younger. When Jesus Christ says that the Kingdom of God is present, it is not a personal view or opinion, but fact.
Without Jesus, different German culture
Without Jesus Christ there would be no “Christianity,” said Reinbold. Without him there would be “no Advent, neither Christmas markets nor Christmas presents – and on December 26th we would all have to go to work.” German culture, the calendar and the legal system are “thoroughly Christian.”
The birth of Jesus on December 25th arises from the Catholic imagination. Church. The date is not coined for the Savior, but for the pagan “sun god Mitras”. The date of birth, as the “theologian” also mentioned, is not at all apparent in the Bible. Everything that followed in terms of tradition, rituals and other customs is an outgrowth of the continued Roman paganism on the part of the papacy, which was also adopted by the Protestant churches. This also applies to German culture, which was significantly influenced by the “Holy Roman Empire”.
The calendar used today is an idea of Pope Gregory XIII and was implemented based on his bull “Inter gravissimas” in 1582. The legal system is not at all Christian, as the 10 Commandments according to Exodus 20 speak for this, but almost entirely Roman.
It is therefore not a Christian influence, but rather a Roman Catholic influence. This much distinction between Christianity and Catholicism simply has to be made.
