[GHHF] Celebration of Christmas: Hindus should open their Eyes and Read Few Passages in the Bible
Joseph Atwill wrote in his blog that "Christianity may be considered a religion, but it was actually developed and used as a system of mind control to produce slaves that believed God decreed their slavery.” THE man and story behind Jesus Christ was a Roman hoax designed to control the people as this scholar.
"Although Christianity can be a comfort to some, it can also be very damaging and repressive, an insidious form of mind control that has led to blind acceptance of serfdom, poverty, and war throughout history.”
Atwill even goes so far to say that “to this day, especially in the United States, it is used to create support for war in the Middle East”.
He says he first discovered this revelation when noticing Jesus is “the only fictional character in literature whose entire life story can be traced to other sources”.
Many Hindus due to ignorance celebrate Christmas. Many of their children go to Christian schools where they are taught about the birth of Jesus and why they should celebrate. Is there any date mentioned about the date of birth of Jesus. Or is there any Christian scripture that might have mentioned about his birth? Nobody really knows about the real birthday of Jesus! No specific date is mentioned in the Bible. Then why do Christians and some Hindus celebrate it on the 25th December? The early Christians certainly had many arguments as to when it should be celebrated! Also, the birth of Jesus probably didn't happen in the year 1 but slightly earlier.
Bart Herman says, ‘There are no birth records, no trial transcripts, no death certificates; there are no expressions of interest, no heated slanders, no passing references—nothing. In fact, if we broaden our field of concern to the years , his death—even if we include the entire first century of the Common Era—there is not so much as a solitary reference to Jesus in any non-Christian, non-Jewish source of any kind. I should stress that we do have a large number of documents from the time—the writings of poets, philosophers, historians, scientists, and government officials, for example, not to mention the large collection of surviving inscriptions on stone and private letters and legal documents on papyrus. In none of this vast array of surviving writings is Jesus’ name ever so much as mentioned.” (pp. 56-57) The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine (he was the first Christian Roman Emperor). But it was not an official Roman state festival at this time.
Jesus is a jealous GOD; Do not want any competition
Jesus is a jealous God. That means he cannot love, forgiving, and tolerant. Worshipping images/idols is a sin, horrible, and loveless. By worshipping idols you do not respect Jesus, you distance yourself from him, and you offend him. Idolatry is serious to God. So much so that He tells us to flee from it and to not associate with people who call themselves believers but are idolaters.
By saying that he is jealous and asks people not to worship any other God, Jesus feels threatened, insecure, vulnerable, self-doubting and inferior. If he is really a God who is usually described as omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent, do you think that he will feel jealous. This is a defeatist personally with no self confidence in himself.
By being jealous, he wants no competition with other Gods. He wants to have monopoly over all the Gods and hence he does not want to people to worship other Gods who may be powerful than himself. When do you feel jealous? When you do not have confidence in yourself and do not believe in your own strength.
Let us contrast this with Hindu Gods. Al-Biruni, who visited India around 1030,wrote that the Hindus believe with regard to God that He is one, eternal, without beginning and end, acting by free-will, almighty, all-wise, living, giving life, ruling, preserving; one who in his sovereignty is unique, beyond all likeness and unlikeness, and that he does not resemble anything nor does anything resemble Him. Hindu God is not jealous. He is more tolerant, loving and all inclusive.
Few Examples of Christian hatred toward Idolatry
All Hindus must be cognizant of various verses that demean Murti (Idol) worship. An overwhelming number Hindus go to the Temples to a darshan of the presiding deity to seek his/her blessings. We all believe in one Supreme Go (Shakti) which can manifest in any number of forms. Just like a Sun can generate billions of rays, the Shakti can also manifest infinite number of forms. Whenever we worship any God or Goddess, we worship the energy behind the image.
For some reason, Christians abhor murthi worship and Bible has numerous verses demeaning idol worship. One wonders why. Since Jesus is a jealous God, he felt that his importance will diminish and may become insignificant. That thought might have given shivers to his body. Hence, you will find these verses cursing the idols and demanding the followers to condemn and demean the idol worship.
These verses are listed for your intelligent mind to absorb and reflect:
Exodus 20:3 "You shall have no other gods before me.
Exodus 20:4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
Exodus 20:5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.
Exodus 20:23 Do not make any gods to be alongside me; do not make for yourselves gods of silver or gods of gold.
Exodus 23:13 "Be careful to do everything I have said to you. Do not invoke the names of other gods; do not let them be heard on your lips.
Exodus 32:4 He took what they handed him and made it into an idol cast in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool. Then they said, "These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt."
Exodus 34:14 “Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.”
Deuteronomy 4:24 “For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.”
Deuteronomy 4:25 “You must burn their idols in fire, and you must not covet the silver or gold that covers them. You must not take it or it will become a trap to you, for it is detestable to the LORD your God.
Deuteronomy 7:25 “But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.”
Deuteronomy 7:26 “Do not bring a detestable thing into your house or you, like it, will be set apart for destruction. Regard it as vile and utterly detest it, for it is set apart for destruction.”
Deuteronomy 7:16 “You must destroy all the peoples the LORD your God will deliver to you. Do not look on them with pity. Do not worship their gods, for that will be a snare to you.”
Deuteronomy 12:3 “Tear down their altars, smash their sacred pillars, burn up their Asherah poles, cut down the idols of their gods, and wipe out their names from every place.”
Deuteronomy 13:16 “And you are to gather all its plunder in the middle of the public square, and completely burn the city and all its plunder as a whole burnt offering to the LORD your God. The city must remain a mound of ruins forever, never to be rebuilt.”
Deuteronomy 6:14-15 “You shall not go after other gods, the gods of the peoples who are all around you (for the LORD your God is a jealous God among you), lest the anger of the LORD your God be aroused against you and destroy you from the face of the earth.”
Deuteronomy 5:9 “You shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God,
Deuteronomy 7:4 For they will turn your sons away from following Me, to serve other gods; so the anger of the LORD will be aroused against you and destroy you suddenly.
Deuteronomy 11:16-17 Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them, lest the LORD's anger be aroused against you, and He shut up the heavens so that there be no rain, and the land yield no produce, and you perish quickly from the good land which the LORD is giving you.
1 Corinthians 10:14 “Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.”
1 Corinthians 5:11 “But now I am writing you not to associate with anyone who claims to be a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a verbal abuser, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat.”
Eze 6:4-6 (NIV) "... I will slay your people in front of your idols. I will lay the dead bodies of the Israelites in front of their idols, and I will scatter your bones around your altars... your idols smashed and ruined, your incense altars broken down, and what you have made wiped out."

Examples of Real absurdity in the Bible
1) Sabbath –Put them to death if they work on Sunday
Overwhelming majority of Christians believe in Ten Commandments. About Sabbath, Exodus 35:2 commands:
For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the LORD. Whoever does any work on it must be put to death.
Who will put them to death? Who has the authority in Christianity to put these people to death? You know that millions and millions of people work on Sunday (Sabbath day). All the shops are open where millions are working. Many sports are played on Sunday. Even Christian Book stores are open defying the word of God. I am sure that you thought about it since you are a Christian who you would not go against your God. How do we deal with these people and put them to death? Exodus 20:9 even specifies as to who should not work: “you shall not do any work – you, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock or the alien resident in your towns.” Do you work on Sunday? What about your children?
2) Daughters as Slaves – You can sell your daughters
Exodus 21:7 states that "When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are.” It appears that a man can sell his daughters as slaves and she cannot be freed even after six years. Do you know if anybody is selling his daughters and what is the fair price now? If Christians do not sell their daughters, don’t you think they are denying the GOD? Why your Christian religion is discriminating people based on sex? Do the Christians need permission from the government to sell Christian Daughters.
3) Rebellious Sons –If your children do not obey, they are killed
Deuteronomy 21:18-21 says: “If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey his father and mother, who does not heed them when they discipline him, then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his town at the gate of that place. They shall say to the elders of his town, ‘This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.’ Then all the men of the town shall stone him to death. So, you shall purge the evil from your midst; and all Israel will hear, and be afraid.”
How cruel it is to take your rebellious son to the town to be killed.
4) Women - Must be Submissive
1 Timothy 2:11-12; “A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. Do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.”
Corinthians 14:34-35; “Women should be silent during the church meetings. It is not proper for them to speak. They should be submissive, just as the law says. If they have any questions, they should ask their husbands at home, for it is improper for women to speak in church meetings.”
We all know that there are millions of Christian women teachers and Christian nurses in authoritative position in India and all over the world. What do we do with them? Is it time to fire them because God forbade them? Do you advocate their removal because they are not permitted to be in authoritative positions over men according to the Lord?
5) Amputation – Cut off your hands and feet; gauge your eyes out
Mathew 18: 8-9; “If your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.”
Mark 9:43 “If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out.”
It is somewhat troubling to understand. First of all, according the Bible, everybody is a sinner. If that is the case, anybody that is born should have been thrown away into eternal fire? Is there an exception where somebody is born as a non-sinner? Since everybody is a sinner why don’t we burn them when they born.
Who is going to cut off the hands and feet that caused a person to sin? Who is going to gouge the eye and throw it away? Who in the Church is responsible to cut off the hands and foot and gouge the eyes?
Christianity is a Monotheistic Religion
There is no tolerance or inclusiveness in Christianity. The whole motto of Christianity is “one book, one God and one way.””That means Bible is the only book, Jesus is the only God and Christianity is the only way. Monotheistic religions are dangerous, sexist, hateful and full of revenge.
Monotheistic religion Christianity is authoritarian, undemocratic, totalitarian, intolerant, total obedience, cannot question; - killing, torture, excommunication, burning, Conversion, deception, (Eg: Christianity, Islam Judaism)
Any opposition or questioning lead to crusades, inquisitions, reformations, witchcraft, repentance,
Polytheistic religion like Hinduism is democratic, tolerant, open for discussion, dialogue, questioning, more freedom, inquiry prone; liberal, scientific,
George Bernard Shaw: “The apparent multiplication of Hindu Gods is bewildering at first glance. But soon you discover that they are all same God in different aspects and functions. There is always one uttermost god that defies personification. This makes Hinduism the most tolerant religion in the world because its one transcendent God includes all possible Gods.”
Gore Vidal: “From barbaric Bronze Age text known as the Old Testament, three anti-human religions have evolved - Judaism, Christianity and Islam. These are sky-god religions … The sky god is a jealous god, of course. He requires total obedience from everyone on earth, as he is in place not for just one tribe but for all creation. Those who would reject him must be converted or killed for their own good. Ultimately, totalitarianism is the only sort of politics that can truly serve the sky-god's purpose.”
He also says, “Many of the Christian evangelists feel it necessary to convert everyone on earth to their primitive religion, they have been prevented- so far- but they have forced most tyrannically and wickedly - their superstitions and hatred upon others. So it is upon account that I now favor an all-out war on the monotheists.”
Deceptive Tactics to Convert Dalit
Christian missionaries blatantly lie and tell them that there is no caste system in Christianity and everybody is equal. They we do not practice caste system and they will not be recognized as dalits. After they are converted, to their surprise they find out that they have separate doors to enter the church, seating is allotted at the back and they cannot mix with upper caste people. Marriages take place among the similar caste people. Cemeteries are different for Dalit and upper caste Christians.
Christian church authorities used every trick, deceit and deception to convert gullible and innocent Hindus into Christianity. They do not even mind going against their own religious scripture, Bible. Why do they use so many deceptive techniques to convert people? Billions of dollars are pouring into India from many foreign countries. The Christian preachers have to show that they are converting in order to get more and more money from these countries.
Father Joseph Menengis, priest of St James Church in Mariyannapalya, Bangalore, confessed before the Justice B K Somashekara Commission of Inquiry on Wednesday (March 11, 2009) “The duty of every Christian is to convert non-Christians to Christianity by any means.” When he says “by any means” what does it mean? That means Christians can go against their own Bible teachings, ignore their own Bible, and insult their own God to their selfish monetary motives. They use such method as deception, deceit, force, manipulation, allurement, tricks, treachery, exploitation, violence, killings, educational indoctrination, defame other religions, demean other gods, denounce other scriptures, sexual exploitation and the list goes on.
Father Joseph Menengis also said “Hindus believe in idol worship. So to attract them to Christianity, idol worship is performed in churches.” During cross-examination, the priest said that “despite idol worship being prohibited in Bible, we have idol worship in churches.” Most of the churches have adopted the policy of what is called “enculturation” in order to attract Hindus to these churches. In fact some churches are using Hindu methods of worshiping such as offering arthi, performing abhishekam, chanting names, singing bhajans etc only to convert and modifying the churches to look like Hindu Temples. Some Preachers are dressed like a Hindu saint with long saffron robes to mislead Hindus. The Outlook magazine observed that “Om Namah Jesus could well reverberate inside hundreds of Catholic churches in India very soon, if the changing physical face of these places of worship is anything to go by.” A number of shrines for Mary Mata, different saints are springing up. How can that reconcile to the injunctions of Bible condemning the idol worship. For example in Vijayawada thousands of pilgrims queued up to visit Mary Matha shrine at Gunadala on the second day of the three-day Gunadala Matha festival on Tuesday….Many pilgrims had their heads tonsured on the hillock before offering something. (The Hindu Feb 11, 2009).
To allure innocent Hindus, now they are building Churches resembling Hindu Temples with Rajagopurams adorned with cross instead of kalasas on the top. Now they are putting Jesus in chariot in front of Churches resembling Lord Krishna in Chariot giving upadesa to Arjuna. Now they are putting posters all over India with Jesus as a Yogi – in meditation posture. As David Frawley, an American Hindu teacher and author states in one of his article, ”In India today, the image of Christ as a yogi is not used by Christians to honor the teachings of Yoga. Jesus as a yogi is a new form of conversion propaganda employed by those who do not follow Yoga at all, but use the story to subvert a deeper questioning of their motives and the biases of their theologies.”
In no other country you will see Jesus being worshipped, arthi being offered, agarabathi lighted, breaking coconuts, offering prasadam, distributing teertham, reading ashtottaranamas, worshipping cross in a manner similar to Ayyappa 18 step padi puja, singing bhajans, playing Carnatac music and so on. It is only in India, the deception is rampant with the aid of Politicians, secularists and billions of dollars pouring in from USA.
It appears that Christianity in India is different from any other country. Bible is translated differently to suite the Indian people. Practice of praying is totally different from any other country. It is all make them convert and force them to behave like sheep or a slave. When anybody confronts them, they pull the Atrocities Act from their arsenal and file a case against anybody who questions them. Hindus have become sacrificial goats by this Act.
Is this the kind of Christianity, the Hindus are supporting by celebrating and participating in Christmas celebrations? The whole Christian religion was meant for Sheppards. If one sheep goes, others follow without thinking. Many Hindus follow this sheep mentality without thinking and without realizing the consequences of their support and silence. Let us shed our sheep mentality and protect our dharma by routing out the termites that are stealthily collapsing our Hindu edifice.
