I began my religious novel ‘The Lion of God’ in 1991. I had read all of Luke one night, and was in the light. However, when I read Acts – on – I was deeply disturbed by enverything Saint Saul-Paul said and did. Paul claims Jesus forgave him for being a mass murderer of Jews. He tortured woman and children in order to denounce “their Lord”. Why? What was his motive? Why did Jesus, who is on his way to being declared the God of the Gentiles – and no longer the God of the Jews, have a great interest in having a serial killer COMPLETE his mission? When I read how Paul and his disciples confronted the disciple of John the Baptist, I knew there was a Great Lie at work here. I set out to discover what it was, and expose it. I employ roses and rose thorns. Here is the birth of ‘The Rose Line’.
John is the candidate for the Messiah of the Jews. He never preached he was preparing the way for another prophet greater than he. The spreader of this LIE, would want to surplant John and take his place. Jesus knew John, Paul did not. Paul never met Jesus, either.
In these three pages ( I have to find the others) John has come to the island of Cyprus with his wife, Mary Magdalene, and HIS twelve disciples. John’s mother is very wealthy and powerful. She does not appove of her sons religious work. She instructs her servants to undermine it.
Meanwhile, Saul-Paul is heading to Cyprus with a fleet of stone cold pirates and killers. He is bent on destroying the Nazarites who took a vow to be ordained TO GOD, not Jesus, not Paul, but………..GOD! Remember Him?
Obviously, if my religious-fiction is on to this scheme, then I am being guided to EXPOSE the false Christian church built upon the Lies of Saint Paul! He should stand trial. Twelve noted theologians should put him on trial! MOTIVE! MOTIVE! MURDER!
Matthew 11:9-11 Then what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. (10) This is the one about whom it is written: ” ‘I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way before you.’ (11) I tell you the truth: Among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
Jesus was saying that John the Baptist was more than a prophet because John himself was even the subject of prophecy! Both Malachi and Isaiah had prophesied about John the Baptist’s coming as a fore-runner to the arrival of the Messiah. Having said this, Jesus then says the statement that of those that are born of a woman, there has not arisen any greater than John. I guess the question is ‘greater’ in what respect? What was Jesus meaning? Was it greatest in terms of his character? Was it greatest in terms of his impact? Was it greatest in terms of his faith? Though John the Baptist was a giant in all of these areas, I doubt that was what Jesus was meaning because He goes on to say ‘yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he’. Now the least in the kingdom of Heaven is not going to have greater character than John. Nor will he have greater impact or faith. And yet the least in the kingdom of Heaven must have something greater that John…
