IS POPE FRANCIS A “BLASPHAMOUS ANTI-CHRIST,” OR COURAGEOUS? PART 2

NOTE: First published on July 21, 2020. The “Published” date on the tab is the date that it was uploaded on this new site. Though some issues in this piece may still be current (depending on…), this is to avoid mistaking this piece as current news.

This is “No Bullshiting,” by Harry Agina.

In 2019, I blogged on this topical question, and my position was that the pope is a courageous man, who has dared to brake the age-old christian taboo of questioning the contents of the Holy Bible. That was when he posited that the “Lead us not into temptation” phrase in “Our Lord’s Prayer” is incorrect, which translates to my much earlier (2007) factual position that the Bible contains the word of God, but it is certainly not The Word of God.

This is 2020, and the Pope is said to have “canceled” the Bible. To me, if the pope actually said this, he has only affirmed my position by stating that some contents of the Bible were erroneously interpreted from their original scripts, and others were mischievously adulterated by man; and, these errors and mischiefs should be corrected, along with updating some contents that are too ancient to fit into the contemporary times, that’s all…shikena, otito, okwu agwu!!!

In 2019, the pope cited “Our Lord’s Prayer” as an example of the errors.

Yes, indeed; back in 2007, yours truly, the ordinary Harry Agina, posited that: “The Bible Contains The Word Of God, But It Is Definitely Not the word of God.” Long before this, way back in the early 1980s, I keyed into a humorous comment by a Jamaican Comedian in Houston Texas, who said “We ask God not to lead us into temptation…when did God ever lead us into temptation; is He Satan to lead us into temptation??”

        After almost laughing my head off due to the comedian’s humorous attitude and Jamaican accent, I actually gave his statement a serious thought. Suffice to say that, thenceforth, I changed that line of The Lord’s Prayer into this: “Don’t let Satan lead us into temptation,” instead of “Lead us not into temptation.” That was also when my POSITION that the Bible is not completely THE WORD of God was born, because I saw the phrase as an erroneous quote of Christ’s true statement.

Simply, my position states that:

(1) There are several man-made statements and doctrines in the Bible, which were mischievously attributed to God and Christ, for various reasons.

(2) The bible has several unintentional errors, including typographical and trans-linguistic errors.

My trans-linguistic error argument is based on the fact that one can never translate a long passage of writing from one language to another language exactly as it is in the original text…humanly impossible!!! This fact was confessed in a footnote contained in the first translated batch of the Bible from the original Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic scripts. The first batch were called the “fifty bibles of constantine 1”, and they were submitted to Emperor Constantine in the 4th Century, by the translation team. The footnote says:

     “This is the usual way in which Eusebius’ text is translated, BUT THERE IS MORE POSSIBILITIES, because (for example) the (Greek) phrase– ‘ἐν πολυτελῶς ἠσκημένοις τεύχεσιν τρισσὰ καὶ τετρασσὰ διαπεμψάντων ἡμῶν’– has many meanings.”

        Whatever that Greek phrase means, the transcribers themselves used it to admit that the Bible is fraught with trans-linguistic errors or ambiguities; that the original ‘codices’ or manuscripts were not perfectly transcribed to carry the exact meanings that were intended by the authors.

As for the matter of typographical errors, I refer you to the Book of Amos chapter 4, verse 4, as contained in two versions of the bible– the Latino Heritage, and the King James versions.

        The Latino Heritage says: “Come to Bethel and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, and your tithe every three days…”

        But the KJV and other versions say: “Come to Bethel and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, and your tithe every three years…” This is an undisputable typographical error in the Latino Heritage version of the Bible. The correct statement is three years, not three days.

The point is that, certainly, the Bible is fraught with several unintentional errors.

      And, as for intentional man-made influences, doctrines, and mischievous adulterations that were attributed to God and Christ, there are plenty, meeeeeen!!! But, I hold my case for now; otherwise, you may no longer need to buy and read my book, “The Invasion Of The Funky Pastors,” when I publish it…soon. My subscript says “Church Business At War With The African Culture.”

The errors and mischief are among the reasons for the position of Pope Francis about the Bible today, which I posited several years ago.

        Folks, the pope and I do not challenge the word of god, (God forbid); what we challenge are the human errors and mischief that are attributed to God and Christ. The pope has today vindicated me against the tongue-lashing of extremist Christians who called me anti-Christ, and Devil worshipper, when I publicized my position several years ago. As Christ said on the cross, I do forgive them, for they knew not what they were doing. They have fallen prey to the age-old conspiracy and secrecy in the Christendom, and the instituted taboo against questioning the contents of the bible.

The early conspirators instituted the taboo and kept the Bible unaccessible to all Christians, until King Henry the Eighth (VIII) defied the pope, mass-produced the bible, and made it public in 1539. Before then, punishment to any non-clergy person that was seen with a copy of the Bible, was death by instant execution.

So, as I posited in part one of my blog on this topic, the world should praise Pope Francis for being courageous to brake the conspirators taboo in the Christendom, rather than insult him…I ain’t bullsitting you,  meeeeeeeeen!!!!!!!!!
