The following are excerpts taken from my 3rd book “The Falsehoods of Christianity” Volume Two:
The Falsification of Matthew
Jesus Christ according to Christian biblical timeline—died on a Friday April 3, 33 AD around 3:00 pm. He was entombed shortly before sunset. Now according to John 20:1 Mary Magdalene came to the sepulcher while it was still dark early Sunday morning to find the tomb empty. This would mean Jesus was entombed for a day and a half.
Please note the following: It’s been mentioned five times in the gospel—three days after his crucifixion and burial—Jesus resurrection shall occur.
Matthew 12:40 … “The Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”
Matthew 16:21 “Jesus said he would be killed, and be raised again the third day.”
Matthew 17:23 “And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again.”
Matthew 20:19 … “and the third day he shall rise again.”
Luke 24:46 “Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day.”
The key to understanding this dilemma is to realize the Bible where mostly written by men. Some known and mostly unknown. The point is—known or unknown does not matter; except in one particular area. They all were human—which means to err is to be human.
On the other side of the coin you have this “in order to be a Christian in good faith—one need just believe and understanding shall follow.”
Then you have Mark 16:9 “Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene.”
I shall reveal the answer to this complex issue of Christ’s resurrection in my 3rd book “The Falsehoods of the Bible” due out in the fall of 2019.
In the meantime: Why is this the death of Jesus so important to these wolves of tithing? Because some would be religious tithing scholars (mostly Word of Faith Ministers) claim that the Gospel According to Matthew was mostly written prior to the crucifixion—so therefore it is null and void when it comes to the New Covenant and allows them to use its context within the Old Covenant. Which sets up another dilemma with those wolves of tithing between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant—within their own delusional minds.
Yes, believe it or not—these wolves of tithing are right. But even when their right—they be wrong. As pointed out—there are 1,071 verses in Matthew and all but the last 36 (starting with Mat. 27:51) were written prior to the crucifixion when upon Jesus’ death on the cross (Mat. 27:50) ended the Old Covenant and the New Covenant started—when Jesus uttered the words “It is finished.”
But just like in Malachi when Jesus cursed the priest for stealing his tithe—he does the same thing in Mat. 23:23 “Wow unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith …”
Meaning: Just because you claim to be a self anointed Minister of God and a Christian—it does not give you the right to change God’s laws—but to follow them. I am null in void because I’m an atheist—you’re not, because you claim to be a Christian when actually you’re an oracle of Satan when you miss use the Old Covenant that was meant for the Israelites in BC for your devilish deeds of tithing in AD.
In reality the Gospel of Matthew in its entirety (according to Christ law of common sense) was the death of the Old Covenant and the birth of the New Covenant). One sees this in the illustration Jesus gives of the New Covenant in Mat. 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Then again in Mat. 19:21 “Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven.”
It is true that the majority of Matthew took place while the Old Covenant was in effect—which has absolutely nothing to do with anyone but the Israelites to begin with—the fact of the matter that these wolves of tithing would try and use the Gospel of Matthew for a loophole to support their ideology of tithing is simply mind boggling. The fact that a majority of their flock believe in them is a mental health issue and not a Godly issue.
