Book Description

Jan. 6 2005
No dogma please. And hold the mustard. For something to be called Christianity, it should be based on the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Jesus never said he needed to die for our sins so we could be "saved." Only Paul and John make this claim. Christianity has therefore become a form of Paulism and Johnism that emphasize the Savior aspect of Jesus.

But Paul had never met or heard Jesus teach, and John tells a story that's so different from the other disciples that we must seriously question him as a source.

Did you also know there are two different biblical stories about how Judas dies?

And Mary Magdalene wasn't a prostitute until the Pope made her one in the sixth century.

Pope Urban II even made killing non-Christians acceptable in the eleventh century.

Other subjects include ancient Buddhist records about Jesus traveling to India and studying Buddhism. Jesus may even have studied and practiced Kabbalah.

Subsequently, What Did Jesus Really Say is an easy to read introduction that also reflects on God, Karma, Buddhism, Kabbalah, Reincarnation, Politics, and even Astrophysics.

If Born Again Christian Fundamentalists have tried to scare you into believing that Jesus died for your sins, then you've got to read this book! When all else fails, Christian Fundamentalists will try to frighten you with the concept of going to Hell. As kids, most of us who were brought up as Christians were "threatened" with going to Hell unless we believed that Jesus died for our sins. This psychological factor is ingrained somewhere in our subconscious. Even when we grow up, it's still there. More so for some of us then for others. So when Born Again Christians try to convert you, they will ultimately bring up Hell. They will say something like "Isn't it better to believe than go to Hell?" Don't let this influence you. God is a loving God. He doesn't send people to Hell just because you have doubts as to who Jesus is. God is not a hateful God.

Even if Jesus is the Son of God, and even if he really did die for our sins, God's not going to send you to Hell just because you're not sure about it. If "...God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son..." to save us, then just because you have an intelligent mind that seeks logical answers to questions, God is not going to condemn you for that. Didn't he give you that intellectual mind? That's like saying that God will only take you to heaven if you shut off your intellect and blindly follow the concepts of Christianity. It's OK to question the New Testament. It's OK to question Christianity. It's OK to doubt.

This book looks at Jesus with logic. It uses the New Testament as a source for answers to Born Again Christian Fundamentalism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! June 20 2006
Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful book!

I love the intermingling of religion, mysticism, politics, and science to form a well-written presentation about Jesus. In fact this book is very positive about Jesus; however, it also shows how Christian Fundamentalism (and even Christianity in general) simply got it wrong.

The author, Peter Cayce, has tied all these subjects together in a well-presented and concise argument. The last chapter and the Epilogue also answer the age old question question, "What Is The Meaning Of Life?"

Very interesting indeed!

For more information on this book, you can also look at the many hundreds of reader votes and reviews over at Amazon.com (Amazon's USA website). But be sure to return here to buy the book at this Canada website. It costs more to be dispatched from the States. Buy it from Amazon.ca instead!

5.0 out of 5 stars A very interesting and informative book. June 7 2006
Format:Paperback
This is a very informative book for any reader interested in a clear-cut introduction into this subject. The author certainly clarifies many issues. Perhaps what I liked best is that this book is not a heavy scholarly piece that becomes overly tedious to read.

You can either read the chapters you are interested in or you can read the entire book from start to end. At first, I only read the chapters I wanted to read, but I enjoyed them so much that I started the book again from the beginning.

I especially liked the last two chapters with esoteric explanations of how the universe might actually work. I also enjoyed the philospophical link between science and religion.

In other words, I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking an easy to read introduction on this subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely. Absolutely lovely! March 21 2006
Format:Paperback
(...)I read all the positive reviews here and at the United States website of Amazon (AMAZON.COM). In fact, if you want to know more about this book, there are many more positive and detailed reviews at the USA website. There you will also find numerous positive Amazon reader votes for this book.
I must say that I agree wholeheartedly with these reviews. This is a lovely book. And very interesting. A very good introduction for anyone wanting to know a bit more about this subject.
Just be sure to come back to this website (AMAZON.CA) to buy the book. It costs more to be shipped from the States!

5.0 out of 5 stars An extremely interesting book. March 19 2006
Format:Paperback
(..)I could not put this book down. Very interesting material. A "must read" for anyone interested in an introduction to this subject. The author's web page (...) also states that "Jesus had it right, but that Christianity got it wrong." I like that. It's probably true
