THE STORY OF JESUS IS A CAREFULLY CONTRIVED MYTH
The early church needed converts to Christianity. Church leaders created an entire mythology surrounding Jesus’ birth which borrowed heavily from the Cult of Horus in Egypt, and legends surrounding Krishna’s divinity. The website listed below contains an in-depth comparison between the mythology of Jesus and mythologies of other deities which are centuries before the birth of Jesus.
I started questioning Christianity as I began to read books which contained information that was contrary to what I’d been taught: Holy Blood, Holy Grail, The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception, The Passover Plot, The Messianic Legacy and Pagan Christs. The more I read, the more questions I had. The Fifth Coin, available on Amazon, is an action/adventure format novel dealing with the deception developed by early church bishops contrived for the express purpose of attracting pagan converts. While written in a fast-paced format set in the present day, historical documentation is the result of extensive research.
