Rex Deus based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Modern Christinaity has been misled for 2000 years. The myths about Jesus were borrowed from the pagan religions of Rome and Egypt. The better known dying and rising god-men were Osiris of Egypt, Atys, Adonis, Dionysus and Orpheus of Greese, Bacchus of Rome, Tammuz of Syria, Odin of Scandinavia, Krishna of India, Hesus of the Celtic Druids, and Quetzalcoatl of Mexico. By copying these traditions, these were all used to create the most pagan religion in the world - Christinaity. In 1994 the Pope admitted this was true and went on to point out that these 'gods' were also heralded in by great signs and wonders, including the sighting of a bright star. The date of December 25th as the birthday of Jesus was chosen because it was already the mid-winter festival for the old pagans. This book reveals the real Jesus, the man who did not die on the cross, but was helped to escape and leave Israel. He continued his minstery in countries such as Scotland and India. He was married to Mary Madgelene and had at least two children who carried on the bloodline. One of the origional Knights Templar, Godfroi de Bouillon, was a direct descendent of Jesus (17 generations removed ). Muslims do not believe that Jesus died on the cross. Unable to accept that crucifixion could serve the purposes of God, Islamic tradition holds that someone else died in his place, while Jesus was taken by God to return at the end of time to judge all people. Exerpts from the Nag Hammidi Library prove this to be true. It is also reflected in the Gnostic teachings. This book is a must read for every truely religious person. Christ is still with us, but no longer resides in the 'body' of Jesus.
There are better books that deal with the Rex Deus' subject, definitely. Ninety percent of RD is compiled from various other books. The rest is a story told to authors by one man who claims to be a member of the so called Rex Deus family line, that allegedly originated from priests of the Jerusalem Temple. He has no documents to support his claim, just a story told to him by his father. In a nutshell, authors retell a story already told in The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail, and numerous similar books: 'Jesus survived crucifiction, married Mary Magdalene, have children and founded the dynasty. He was just a man, and he has not come to redeem and save, but to bring some secret knowledge - not to all men - just to a chosen few', etc.etc. Furthermore - 'St. Paul has distorted original message of Jesus and was a first heretic. Templars, Cathars and Freemasons were/are keepers of the true faith' It's clear that authors of the Rex Deus fell in the same trap as many before them: they DO NOT take Gospels in their wholeness. On the contrary, they take one or two Gospel's lines out of context, compare them with some esoteric text and make a conclusion that fits their preconceptions. They completely ignore Jesus miracles, and they don't pay attention not only to when a Gospel writer clearly states the Divine origin of Christ but also when Jesus himself talks about it. Authors show that they are not sceptical and unbiased schollars, but new age followers (check the last chapter) that look into Christianity through dirty glasses.
