If you had been told the story below hundreds of thousands of times since you were an infant, wouldn't you believe the story to be true and not a myth?

Matthew: 1:18-25

Quote:

18 This is how the birth of Heracles came about: His mother Alcmene was pledged to be married to Amphitryon, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through Zeus. Because Amphitryon her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
20 But after he had considered this, Apollo appeared to him in a dream and said, “Amphitryon son of Alcaeus, do not be afraid to take Alcmene home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from Zeus. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Heracles, for he will be the divine protector of mankind.”
22 All this took place to fulfill what the gods had said through the prophet Tiresias: “A virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Heracles” (which means “Pride of Hēra”).
24 When Amphitryon woke up, he did what Apollo had commanded him and took Alcmene home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And Amphitryon gave him the name Heracles.
Heracles, born of a virgin made pregnant by a god. Jesus, born of a virgin made pregnant by a god. Hera, queen of Olympus sought to have the baby Heracles killed out of jealousy. Herod, king of Judea sought to have the baby Jesus killed out of jealousy.

Sound familiar?????

Don't forget about Pharaoh wanting to kill all the baby Hebrews and Moses and stuff.

If that were what the message Christ brought hinged on you would be posting something besides your normal inanities.

I'm sorry you don't like it, nate, but facts are facts. The Jesus legend was derived from a variety of pagan gods--Dionysus, Osirus, Krishna, Romulus, and Tammuz chief among them.

Did God **** you off or something thrill, all your post lately are nothing more then the ranting of someone who thinks they have been wronged and now wants to blame God for it all.

It's only to be expected that the believers in the fairy tale they call Christianity with start foaming at the mouth and raving at anyone who raises doubts about their book of Myths. it just shows why it is so essential that this is done.

All these Greek gods disappeared around the 300 AD and as completely gone by 666 AD , with Christianity and unbelief and the Muslim faith came ....... Where fallen angel gods like apollo went into the abyss off the earth ..... So then Jesus gave the followers the Holy Spirit of God who is the living presence of the living God , where Jesus spirit is still alive today , where apollo is a lost angel ........ From the bible Revelation 9;11 ``And they had a king over them , which is the angel of the bottomless pit (abyss) in the greek tongue has the name apollyon

All those christian gods should have disappeared about 1,000 AD when the world Didn't end and the Sheep realised they'd been fleeced. Yet here we are, after the Second Millennium, and 40% of the USA still believes this garbage.
