Jesus Christ Atheist HTML version

Contrary to popular opinion Jesus Christ did not teach
monotheism. The Jews already had monotheism and
had worshipped only one God a thousand years before
Jesus was even born. Jesus could not very well
suddenly appear and openly say that worshipping gods
or even one god was delusional thinking whether He
believed it or not. He knew that worship convolutes
the mind of the believer and that the Pharisees would
see him as an heretic; which was a crime punishable
by death. Jesus quietly taught that Gods did not exist
and He and John the Baptist went out of their way to
prove exactly that to all the surrounding villages and
This viewpoint however was indeed blasphemous from
a dogmatic point of view. Naturally the Jews
especially the Pharisees and Sadducees of the time,
wanted to silence Jesus and John from opening
people‟s eyes to the truth of atheism. They therefore
plotted to assassinate Jesus and John because of this
heretical and blasphemous doctrine. They strove on
every occasion to trap them, in order to find cause to
execute them. Eventually they succeeded but not
before Jesus had thoroughly taught others in this
freedom of thought. At His trial Jesus simply answers
Pontus Pilate with “Thou sayest that I am a king. To
this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the
world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every
one that is of the truth heareth my voice.” Pilate
however replies “What is truth?”
Even then, at the height of the Roman Empire there
already was some awareness of this atheistic viewpoint
which Pilate understood but the devout Jews didn‟t.
