There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. Many biblical books were deemed so stupid that 1800 imbeciles decided to ban them from the approved bible, in 325AD. Next comes THE EPISTLE of PAUL the APOSTLE to the LAODICEANS. (Sit tight, hang on, we are about to discover some major BS.)
1 He salutes the brethren. 3 exhorts them to persevere in good works, 4 and not to be moved by vain speaking. 6 Rejoices in his bonds, 10 desires them to live in the fear of the Lord.
PAUL an Apostle, not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, to the brethren which are at Laodicea.
2 Grace be to you, and Peace, from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.
3 I thank Christ in every prayer of mine, that ye may continue and persevere in good works looking for that which is promised in the day of judgment.
4 Let not the vain speeches of any trouble you who pervert the truth, that they may draw you aside from the truth of the Gospel which I have preached.
5 And now may God grant, that my converts may attain to a perfect knowledge of the truth of the Gospel, be beneficent, and doing good works which accompany salvation.
6 And now my bonds, which I suffer in Christ, are manifest, in which I rejoice and am glad.
7 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation for ever, which shall be through your prayer, and the supply of the Holy Spirit.
8 Whether I live or die; (for) to me to live shall be a life to Christ, to die will be joy.
9 And our Lord will grant us his mercy, that ye may have the same love, and be like-minded.
10 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have heard of the coming of the Lord, so think and act in fear, and it shall be to you life eternal;
11 For it is God who worketh in you;
12 And do all things without sin.
13 And what is best, my beloved, rejoice in the Lord Jesus Christ, and avoid all filthy lucre.
14 Let all your requests be made known to God, and be steady in the doctrine of Christ.
15 And whatsoever things are sound and true, and of good report, and chaste, and just, and lovely, these things do.
16 Those things which ye have heard, and received, think on these things, and peace shall be with you.
17 All the saints salute you.
18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
- Cause this Epistle to be read to the Colossians, and the Epistle of the Colossians to be read among you.
There is a translation of this Epistle in the British Museum. It’s hard to understand why this generic letter was removed from the bible. There are a lot more books, way over stupid, that made it in the bible. Verse 4 “Let not the vain speeches of any trouble you who pervert the truth, that they may draw you aside from the truth of the Gospel which I have preached” is amazingly accurate for today. There are so many crooks and thieves making vain speeches to enrich themselves.
Anyway, the doctrine of Christianity is from Paul, rather than Jesus. The faith follows all the teachings of Paul and tends to rebuke most of Jesus’ supposed ideas. That’s why I suggest in my books that Christianity is a misnomer; the religion should be called Paulianity.
