The book examines the illogical and inconsistent teachings of what has become traditional Christianity. Louis Charles takes us through a brief history of how we got the Bible we have, how the hell doctrine arose, how Jesus was deified by the early church fathers, etc. For someone like myself who has been on a truth quest about these things for close to a decade now there's not much shocking here. I found the book to be similar to several written by former fundamentalist Christians who have realized that just doesn't make sense to them anymore. That doesn't mean the book isn't original or worthwhile. We each have our own story to tell and, of all the authors I've read, Louis may be the one whose story is closest to my own. Not only does the religion most of us have been taught not make sense. But, it's actually debilitating, fearful, life-sucking religion.
I agree with Louis on most of his points. The Bible isn't what most Christians think it is. The doctrine of Hell is a man-made invention (politically motivated) to keep the masses in line. The man people worship as G-d in the flesh wasn't named Jesus Christ. His name was more like Yeshua. And, I think He'd be shocked and disappointed to see what is being done in His name today. But, the tone of the book, to me, was just a little over-the-top in condemning Christianity and church.Read more ›
