How wonderful to have come across your website. It is an answer to

We have(myself, my husband and another lady that meets with us on the
Sabbath) just recently come to fully understand the paganism of
"christianity" and the fact that our Savior is YHWH alone and that it is
based on repentance of sin, and He YHWH forgives the sin, there is no
need of a human sacrifice. We do believe that there was a historial
Yahoshua be Yoseph, but that he was not a son of YHWH except in the way
that all mankind is. He was a teacher of truth, a prophet and messiah
for his time.

We had been members of the Worldwide Church of God for many years and
have been independent from organized religion for some time.

Yahweh led us to understand His name first and has continued to lead us
into truth.

We reconize that there are not very many of us out here and so feel
blessed indeed to come across your web page. A few days ago I did run
across another website that taught the historical human Yahshoua, but
advocated a return to Judism and Judism is but another manmade religion.

We must return instead unto the truth of the Torah and the faith that
was delivered unto the fathers.

Count us as part of the community. We seem to be traveling on the same
road, in the same direction. Do you know of any other websites where
this truth is being taught?

YHWH bless your efforts to stand for truth!

Hi Tim:

No I do not remember you from the roots of faith forum.

You said that sometimes you come across harsh, but I did not see
anything on your website that seemed harsh at all.

I have been on several forums and just recently I sent a lengthy post to
three of them telling them of my rejection of christianity and why.

I am sending it to you if you care to read it. Let me know what you
think of it. It is in two parts. Part one below this message, and part
two to folow.

Shabbat Shalom

Most of us were born within a Christian nation, my own back ground is
that of Messianic Judism and then at the age of 21 on, WCG. So even
though I may have questioned some aspects of Christianity (such as
xmas, Easter, the trinity ect.) I had never really done any personal
research to either prove Christianity or disprove it. My faith in
Christianity was based on what other men and(or) organizations said was

About two years ago I put Christianity on trial, and what follows is a
part of the evidence(but by far not all) that I found both in history
and from OT scriptures that has resulted in my verdict on Christianty.

First we have to understand what Christianity teaches. Whether one be a
Sunday observer or a Sabbath observer, all Christians believe that the
Great Creator YHWH required a human sacrifice (and that sacrifice was
His own son) to pay the price for the sin of humanity, thus paving the
way for reconciliation between sinful man and the Father YHWH.
Also all believe that mankind must believe in and accept this human
sacrifice in order to obtain forgiveness and salvation from the death
penalty (Heb. 10:8-14)

Christianity is divided on the nature of the Creator, some believing
that YHWH is triune , others that YHWH is dual and a smaller minority
believe that He is only one.

I now present some of my evidence on the above aspects of Christianity.

Evidence 1. At the beginning of my study(about 2 yrs ago) I proved
from scriptures that YHWH the Most High is only one being. He alone has
inhabited eternity and He alone is responsible for the creation of all
things. The is no other Eloah besides Him, although in scriptures
sometimes angels and even men are referred to as Elohim.

Is. 45:21&22 - Declare you, and bring it forth; yes, let them take
counsel together; who has showed this from ancient time? Who has
declared it of old? Have not I, YHWH? And there is no Elohim else
besides ME, a just El and a SAVIOR; THERE IS NO ONE BESIDES ME. (22)
Look to Me; and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I Am El, and
there is no one else.


Lev. 18:21 - And you shall not give any of your seed to make them pass
through the fire to Molech neither shall you profane the name of your

Deut 12:31 - You shall not do so unto YHWH your Elohim, for every
abomination to YHWH which He HATES have they done unto their Elohim; for
even their sons and their daughters they burn in the fire to their
(see also Deut. 18:10, II Kings 16:1-3)

YHWH punished Israel for the practice of human sacrifice

Deut. 17:7-18 - (notice verses 17&18 especially) And they(Israel)
caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used
divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do that which is
evil in the sight of YHWH, to provoke Him to anger. (18) Therefore YHWH
was very angry with Israel and removed them out of His sight: There was
none left but the tribe of Judah only.

I think that most all of you would agree that these scriptures and
others, show that YHWH was against human sacrifice. I don’t think that
there are any of us today that would practice such a horrendous ,
barbaric thing as human sacrifice. And yet Christianity teaches that
YHWH, who remember sent Israel into captivity partly because of human
sacrifice, turned around and did exactly what He condemned Israel for,
He sacrificed His own son to apprease His self. Does this really make
sense to you?

YHWH says that He does not change EVER
Mal. 3:6 - For I YHWH, change not, therfore you, O sons of Jacob, are
not consumed.

If you believe what Christianity teaches about YHWHs need for a human
sacrifice to atone for sin, then you in fact must proclaim YHWH a liar.

Evidence 3. Proof from history that Christianity is a culmination of
pagan practices and myths.

There are at least 16 crucified saviors known in history , this is
documented in many books,listed below are some of them -

The Worlds Sixteen Crucified Saviors(or Christianity Before Christ) by
Kersey Graves
This book especially shows the links between Christ, Mithra, Krishna,
Buddah, Tammuz and others. Many of whom were born of virgin mothers, of
spring of a deity, died for the sins of mankind, rose on the third day
and were all crucified.
The links between Krishna(Chrishna), Mithra and Christ, are especially
very much alike, even down to the very words that these saviors of men
were said to have uttered.
Mithra for instance had 12 disciples, who represented the 12 signs of
the zodiac, and also enjoyed a last supper with his disciples before he
died. His disciples also held a meal in rememberance of him each year

The Babylonian Connection Between Ancient and Modern Religions - Stephen
This book traces the ancient religion of Babylon to the modern day.

Isis Unveiled - H.P. Blavatsky

Jesus to Buddha, and addresses the numerous virgin birth myths. Also
Christian narratives to Hindu legends, the antiquity of “logos” ect.

Conder - In this book Darrell Conder examines the Christian religion and
demonstrates through history and the so called O.T. that it
(christianity) fulfills the prophecy about end-time Israel’s apostasy.
After reading this book hundreds of people have left Christianity and
have returned to the faith of the fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

There are many, many more books that historically prove the pagan
origins of Christianity

Some of these books can be found in your local library, they can also be
ordered through

Some articles that can be found on the internet that deal with
Christianities pagan origins are -
Thomas Paines - Old Testament “Prophesies” of Jesus Proven False Part I
and 2

The Myth of the Historical Jesus by Hayim ben Yehoshua

The Death of Christ(1896) Charles Watts

The Fabulous Prophecies of the Messiah - Jim Lippard

The “Good News” is No News” James Emmett Mays III


Evidence 4 - quoting from Thomas Paine (1806) “ The Christian religion
is degrogatory to the Creator in all its articles. It puts the Creator
in an inferior point of view, and places the devil above Him. He (the
devil) outwits the Creator and steals from Him his favorite creation,
man, and at last obliges Him(the Creator) to beget a son, and put that
son to death, to get man back again, and this the priests of the
Christian religion call redemption.”

The Old Testament Scriptures prove that YHWH Elohim does not need, nor
require any sort of sacrifice, especially human sacrifice, in order to
forgive the sins of mankind.
All sin is forgiven upon seeking forgiveness for and
repenting(forsaking) of sin.
Evidence proves that YHWH alone is our SAVIOR

I Kings 8:30-52, II Chro. 6:24-42
II Chro. 7:14 - “If My people, who are called by my name, shall humble
themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways,
then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal
their land”

Do you see anything in this verse about the need for a son of YHWH to
die in order for YHWH to forgive sin?

Ps. 32: 1&5 (1) Blessed is he whose transgession is forgiven, whose sin
is covered (5) I acknowledged my sin to you and my iniquity did I not
hide, I said, I will confess my transgressions to YHWH and YOU FORGAVE

Ps. 38:18 & 22 - For I will declare my iniquity, I will be sorry for my
sin (22) Make haste to help me O Sovereign, my Salvation

Ps 40:6 - Sacrifice and offering you have no delight in. My ears have
you opened; Burnt offering and SIN OFFERING YOU HAVE NOT REQUIRED.

Ps. 85:2 - You have forgiven the iniquity of your people; you have
covered ALL THEIR SIN.

Is. 27: 9 - Therefore by this shall the iniquity of Jacob be forgiven,
and this is all the fruit of taking away his sin: that he makes all the
stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in pieces, so that
Asherim and the sun-images shall rise no more.

In other words Israel as a nation must destroy all idols they have and
YHWH will forgive all their iniquity.

Is 43:3 - For I Am YHWH your Elohim, the Holy one of Israel, Your

Is. 45: 21&22 - Declare you, and bring it forth; yes, let them take
counsel together: who has declared it of old? Have not I YHWH: And
there is no Elohim else besides Me, a just El and a SAVIOR; there is no
one besides ME. (22) Look to me, and be saved, all the ends of the
earth; for I am El, and there is NO ONE ELSE.

Is. 60:16 - (last part of verse) and you shall know that I, YHWH, am
your SAVIOR, and your REDEEMER, the Mighty One of Jacob

Hosea 13:4 &14 - Yet I AM YHWH your Elohim from the land of Egypt; and
you shall know no mighty one but ME, and besides Me there is NO
SAVIOR.(14) I will ransom them from the power of Sheol: I will redeem
them from death: O death, where are your plagues? O Sheol, where is
your destruction? Repentance shall be hid from my eyes.

Jer. 36:3 - It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil
which I purpose to do to them; that they may return every man from his
evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.

Ez. 18:19-32 (note 26-28 ) When the righteous man turns away from his
righteousness, and committs iniquity, and dies in it, in his iniquity
that he has done shall he die (27) Again, when the wicked man turns away
from his wickedness that he has committed, and does that which is lawful
and right he shall save his soul alive (28) Because he considers, and
turns away from all his transgressions that he has committed, he shall
surely live, he shall not die.

Ps 19:13 - Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins: let them
not have dominion over me, then shall I be upright, and I will be clear
from great transgression.

Is 43: 11 & 12 - I, even I, am YHWH; and besides me there is NO SAVIOR
(12) I have declared and I WILL SAVE.

Ps. 106:21 - They forgot El, their SAVIOR, who had done great things in

Hosea 14: 1-9 (note vs. 1&4 ) O Israel return to YHWH your Elohim; for
you have fallen by your iniquity (4) I will heal their backsliding, I
will LOVE THEM FREELY; for My anger is turned away from him.

Mal. 3: 16&18 - Then they that feared YHWH spoke one with another, and
YHWH listened and heard,and a book of rememberance was written before
Him, for those who feared YHWH and that thought upon His name. (17) And
they shall be mine, says YHWH of hosts, even My own posession, in the
day that I make; and I will spare them , as a man spares his own son
that serves him.
(18) Then shall you return and discern between the righteous and the
wicked, between him that serves Elohim and him that does not.

Micah 6: 6-8 - With what shall I come before YHWH, and bow myself before
the High Elohim? Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings , with
calves a year old? (7) Will YHWH be pleased with thousands of rams, or
with ten thousands of rivers of oil?
Shall I give my first born for my transgression, the fruit of my body
for the sin of my soul?
(8) He has showed you, O man, what is good, and what does YHWH require
of you, but to do justly, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with
your Elohim.

There is much, much more evidence both from history and from the Old
Testament , I have presented only a small fraction of said evidence.
>From all the evidence I have found, I have reached my personal verdict
on Christianity.

Scriptures prove that YHWH Elohim is our only Savior, and that He did
not require the sacrifice of a son or any other human being in order to
forgive the sins of mankind.
History proves the absolute pagan roots of Christianity.
It is a false religion of Satan that he has used to deceive the whole
world, especially end time Israel.

Deut. 10:12 - And now , Israel, what does YHWH your Elohim require of
yu, but to fear YHWH Your Elohim, to walk in all His Ways, and to Love
Him, and to serve YHWH your Elohim with all your heart and all your

Ex. 20: 2&3 - I am YHWH your Elohim, who has brought you out of the land
of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. (3) You shall have no other
Elohim before Me.

Is 1: 18 - 20 - Come now, and let us reason together, says YHWH: though
your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, though they
are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (19) If you are willing and
obedient, you shall eat the good of the land: (20) but if you refuse and
rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword, for the mouth of YHWH has
spoken it.

Is. 2: 17 - 19 - (17, last part) And YHWH alone shall be exalted in that
day. (18) and the idols shall utterly pass away. (19) and men shall go
into the caves of the rocks, and into the holes of the earth, from
before the terror of YHWH, and from the glory of his majesty, when He
arises to shake mightily the earth.

Having weighed all the evidence and declared my verdict, I hereby
publicly renounce and repent of my idoltry committed against the great
Creator. I reject Christianity totally and will make all efforts to
serve the Elohim of the fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the
other faithful servants of YHWH the only Deity of Israel.

Is 2: 5 - O house of Jacob, come, and let us walk in the light of YHWH.

My prayer is that all of Israel will repent of her idoltry and return
unto YHWH our Father.

Return unto YHWH for why will you die O Israel Seek Yah and Live O
