Goodbye Jesus

I was once an MK

I was brought up as a fundamental, evangelical Christian - in fact, I am a missionary kid (MK) from Africa.

 

But it took me 50 years to start seriously questioning anything that I had been taught. I had been brainwashed for so long and knew all the answers and comebacks, but they are is so full of holes - and it is so obvious now that I am an outsider looking back.

 

This morning on the way to work I was listening to a book on tape, and they mentioned Mithra, who pre-dated Jesus by 600 years. He was born on December 25, had 12 disciples, was crucified, and rose again, and so many more similarities.

 

Why haven't I ever heard of this before? This is almost PROOF that Christianity is not special - but just a clone of previous ancient pagan religions. This information has blown me away, and although I have already de-converted, I am totally horrified that this is not common knowledge with enough debate material to shoot down any Christian argument.

 

Do you know if someone has really investigated this to see if Christianity is based on this and all a myth?

Jesus as a Reincarnation of Mithra

 

Thanks for any input about this.

I am really glad I stumbled on this thread. I had never heard about this until reading through that site just then. I'm definitely going to keep researching on that rather than just taking one web sites word for it, but if all of that is correct... it pretty much debunks any mainstream religion. Especially #9:

 

"He was buried in a tomb and after three days he rose again. His resurrection was celebrated every year."

 

Wow. Thank you for posting this.

The close parallels between Jesus and Mithra are indeed fascinating.

 

Most Christians are either unaware of this, or they reject the notion without really investigating the similarities with an open mind.
