A Pious Fraud

 

The Archbishop and “a virgin birth”

When the 60 year old Justin Welby learnt recently that the DNA test he had taken revealed that the man who he thought was his father was not in fact his biological father, he was moved to say,

 

“I know that I find who I am in Jesus Christ, not in genetics, and my identity in him never changes.”

 

By rejecting the “scientific” evidence, it throws the spotlight on the origin of his ‘faith’.

 

According to The Daily Telegraph, 9th April 2016, Welby, who was, “uninterested in religion”, senses ‘God's presence’ as he prays with a friend in New Court, Trinity College, Cambridge, on October 12th 1975, at the age of 19, ‘changing his life for good..’

 

Fortunately or unfortunately for the Archbishop, depending on his point of view, the philosopher Xenophanes some 500 years before Christ, had noted and ridiculed the stories of the ‘gods’ being taken seriously and literally and viewed them as allegories and metaphors of human ‘spiritual’ experiences.

 

Astrologers have also noted that the so-called “Religious Experience” is associated with the movement of the planets and a look at Welby's horoscope reveals just such an involvement.

 

The name given by the ‘Church’ to hide this ‘spiritual secret’ from us for over 2,000 years is the metaphor, “The Virgin Birth”.

 

A metaphor is a, ‘figure of speech,’ meaning, ‘to transfer’ to a word or phrase, it is not literally applicable.

Welby should re-examine his understanding of, ‘God's presence,’ before he leads too many of his ‘flock’ astray.

No Virgin = No Jesus Christ.

A Pious Fraud

Xenophanes of Colophone, Greek philosopher, theologian, poet and social and religious critic.

 

 

In his book, "The Virgin Birth" Thomas Boslooper quotes the Bible as follows:

 

"Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way.

When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child of the Holy Spirit; and her husband, Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly.

But as he considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying,

"Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit; she will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins."

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:

 

"Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel" (which means, God with us)).

When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took his wife, but knew her not until she had borne a son; and he called his name Jesus."

- Matthew 1:1-25, RSV      

 

A 'virgin birth' or 'rebirth' together with a 'holy spirit', should be treated as a metaphor i.e. a figure of speech!

 

The 'emotional' experience Saul/Paul had on the 'Road to Damascus' - another 'metaphor' - at the age of 29/30, coincides with the astrological 'return' of the planet Saturn or Kronos on it's 29/30 year cycle around the Sun.

 

Chronos or time is at the root of the 'word' Christ!
