Christianity is an unfounded religion that was projected by the Roman Empire to justify slavery and pacify citizens, according to Joseph Atwill, a controversial biblical scholar. In a blog on his site, Mr. Atwill argues that Christianity can be considered a religion, but in reality, it was developed and used as a system of mind control to produce slaves who believed that God had decreed their slavery.
The biblical scholar argues that at that time the Jewish sects in Palestine were waiting for a “war messiah”, which became a growing problem after the Roman Empire failed to deal with the problem by traditional means.
As a result, the leaders resorted to a psychological war that seemed to give citizens what they wanted, while ensuring that they complied with their rules.
Biblical scholar added they assumed that the way to prevent the spread of zealous Jewish missionary activity was to create a concurrent belief system.
In such a way the story of the “peaceful” Messiah was invented, instead of inspiring war, that Messiah encouraged pacifism and encouraged Jews to “give to Caesar” and pay their taxes in Rome.
Joseph Atwill claims although Christianity may be of some comfort to some, it can also be very damaging and repressive, an insidious form of mind control that led to the blind acceptance of servitude, poverty, and war in the course of history. Until now, especially in the United States, it serves to create support for the war in the Middle East.
He says he discovered that revelation by observing that Jesus is “the only fictional character in literature whose life story can be attributed to other sources.
Comparing the New Testament with the “War of the Jews” by Josephus the only one narrative of Judea in the first century – he discovered that the parallels between the two are uncanny.
He also notices that the sequence of events and places in Jesus’ ministry is more or less the same as the events and places of Emperor Tito Flávio’s military campaign and this is a clear proof of a deliberately invented character.
The biography of Jesus is really constructed, from other characters, but above all from the biography of a Roman Caesar.
