PURPOSE

The purpose of this brief document is to identify and bring to light what may be at the root of the violent Evangelization that we have witnessed for over the last 1,600 years.

From the torturing and/or slaughtering of: Orthodox Christians, anyone deemed a Heretic, anyone who protested the Roman Catholic Church Administration's abuses and excesses, the local natives in the Americas - even the witch hunts with their subsequent burning - all may be traced back to some of the writings ascribed to Paul of Tarsus.


BACKGROUND

May the 2,000 years of violent "Evangelization" serve as the background to this document. What else could we possibly add to the historic trail of blood left behind by the "evangelizers"?


INTRODUCTION

For decades miguel de Portugal has wondered how the leadership - and far too many followers - of the Roman Catholic Church justified for over sixteen centuries of brutality in the Name of Jesus Christ - behavior that is completely incoherent with the reality of Jesus Christ presented in the Four Gospels and known to him otherwise.

Although it was right before his eyes, at least once every year, it was now, during the first week of September 2016, that miguel finally saw it.

The trigger reading was First Letter to the Corinthians 5:1-5. In it we read:

It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father's wife. And you are proud! Shouldn't you rather have gone into mourning and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been doing this? For my part, even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. As one who is present with you in this way, I have already passed judgment in the name of our Lord Jesus on the one who has been doing this. So when you are assembled and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present,  hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.

This same brutal solution may be found in the First Letter to Timothy 1:19-20:

Having faith and a good conscience, which some rejecting have made shipwreck concerning the faith. Of whom is Hymeneus and Alexander, whom I have delivered up to Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme. Of whom is Hymeneus and Alexander, whom I have delivered up to Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.


DETAILS

Students of the history of the New Testament have concluded that the books signed by Paul, but which were not written by him, are:

Ephesians
Colossians
2 Thessalonias
1 Timothy
2 Timothy
Titus

In addition, no one has the absolute certainty that those books, officially claimed to have been written by Paul, are indeed his in their entirety or that a few passages were added to justify unChristian behavior.

Furthermore, after more than 3,000 translations (1) one must never accept any teachings which clearly are in direct opposition to what Jesus taught - by Word, Deed and Example.

In the particular case that we are addressing in this document there may have been some manipulation of the interpretation of:

So when you are assembled and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present,  hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.

and

....whom I have delivered up to Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.

In the same chapter of said letter to the Corinthians we also read that:

I wrote to you in an epistle, not to keep company with fornicators.  I mean not with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or the extortioners, or the servers of idols; otherwise you must needs go out of this world.  But now I have written to you, not to keep company, if any man that is named a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or a server of idols, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner: with such a one, not so much as to eat. ..... Put away the evil one from among yourselves.

The above is probably what is at root of what we know as excommunication. Perhaps what Paul meant by "handing over to satan" was the excommunication or separation of the guilty party from the "inner Christian family". If they were expelled from the "inner Christian family" they had to live among the "the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or the extortioners, or the servers of idols" which is equivalent to living in communion with those who belong to satan. A life that carries a high price right here on Earth.

We do not agree that such is the proper way to save the guilty party's soul. On the contrary, that would increase the chances of the individual committing the most grave sins. But that could be the subject of another document...


CONCLUSION

In any case, whether those statements ascribed to Paul were invented, mistranslated or misinterpreted, they seem to be at the root of the violent Evangelization carried by the Roman Catholic Church Administration - the result of which is the sewer of a world we live in now and which.... Thanks be to God!, will soon cleansed to its very core.
