I love you Jesus, but I'm not so crazy about some of your followers

Product Description
Allan W. Janssen has published: "The Plain truth About God-101 (what the church doesn't want you to know)." God-101 presents a fascinating insight into how the original “cult” teachings of Jesus were altered by Greek philosophy, Pagan beliefs and Pauline thought to become the sayings of “The Christ,” and the basis of our modern Bible. God-101 gives an analysis of how the “priesthood” has corrupted Christianity and the other major religions. It shows how “Dogma” has led to the polarization of different sects within the same religion, (Catholic/Protestant – Shiite/Sunni) and how religious strife affects society as a whole, including the upcoming world - wide clash between Christianity and Islam! The book can be reviewed at http://www.God-101.com or http://groups.msn.com/God-101

From the Publisher
Book Description This book comes in two parts. The first half looks at how we as a civilization got to where we are now in our physical and spiritual development.
The second half allows us to take a long look at ourselves as a people. It examines our beliefs, and the practices of the "priesthood and organized religion," that has made our world here in the twenty first century the way it is!

This book has attempted to separate the fact of a "God" from the myths of humanity that have so shaped our lives.

Now,here we go!

The author, Allan W. Janssen, is seriously deprived of Biblical, historical, and archeological knowledge. God is not mocked, nor subject to personal views. The Dead Sea scrolls though not Christian, do produce a fact, Isaiah was written approx. 700 years before Christ, and are perfectly precise and accurate. Of course anyone who doesn't know, the Qumran(dead sea tribe) scrolls were found in the 1940's and have exact letter for letter manuscripts of Isaiah's prophecy of Christ! This is not, nor could be a "church" cover up. Before one does an undertaking to seriously mislead people as knowledgable, one MUST actually do their homework and make sure what they are stating is fact. The fcats we know are this: Pontius Pilate was a Roman Curator and governor, and did have Jesus from Nazareth crucified (Josephus, The Works of Josephus). Jesus of Nazareth was a human, whom did exist during the reigh of Herod the Tetarch (fact). After the crucifixion of Jesus, he was placed in a sealed tomb with a stone weighing close to 2 tons or more (fact) and placed under Roman elite guard (Josephus). Jesus of Nazareth did compel many, many people with diverse miracles (fact). Fact, the tomb is still empty! And of course one last fact, many many witness saw Jesus after the resurrection, close to 500 witnesses who went to their deaths, being burned alive, eaten alive, or tortured to death for their faith in the only One who can give salvation...why did they do this...fame? (I think not, Rome didn't like that)...legacy (I think not, they're dead)...Riches (no way, you can't take it with you)..then what? perhaps what they said is truth, they saw dead raised, sick healed, blind people see, deaf hear, and prophecies so long ago taught them totally true.
Think again Janssen.

Allan W Janssen is the author of the book The Plain Truth About God (What the mainstream religions don't want you to know!) and is available at the web site www.God-101.com
