The True Christians
I don't believe that Christians today are
the true and the original Christians. The original Christians were the
Ebionites. Their first leader was St. James, the half brother of Jesus. Read
The Epistle ( letter
in the Bible) of James.
I feel if I give a link, you
will not read it. So I give to you here:
There are a number of distinct
characteristics that set the Epistle (letter in the Bible)) of James apart from the other New
Jesus is mentioned only twice in
James 1:1 and James 2:1. There is not a single
verse of his death, his resurrection, and Paul salvation theology.
This indicates that James and his group, the Ebionites, did not
believe in these items. James gives us the pure teachings of
Jesus rather than teachings about Jesus.
In James 5.10-11
it was Job and not Jesus who serves as an
example of endurance and willingness to suffer for the purpose of God.
This is totally against Pauline Christianity which is based upon the
ultimate suffering and crucifixion of Jesus for the human sins.
emphasizes that faith has to be accompanied with wisdom (1:2-8), and
declares that faith without works is dead (2:14-26).
This is totally against Paul in his epistles to
the Roman and Galatians that stress on belief in Jesus, born again,
Jesus loves you, Jesus dies for you and all the other nice slogans that
do not require even believing in the Ten Commandments. James was
not merely talking about the importance of works; he was making his case
by asserting it against Paul’s view that faith alone, without
works, is sufficient.
portrays a deep sympathy for the poor and persecuted (2:1-9, 5:1-6),
while at the same time criticizing the rich (4:13-17, 5:1-6). This is
again strongly reminiscent of what we know about the original Jewish-Christian
Jerusalem, where the
term the poor was commonly used as an honorable title to describe
the community there - either the whole group or a large part of it.
There is no
mention of Gentiles within the church. In fact, James does not
mention Gentiles at all, and the Letter was addressed to the twelve
Jewish tribes in the Dispersion. It is likely that this Epistle was
written before the
Jerusalem Council of Acts 15 and that
Gentiles had not yet been accepted into the church.
is not presented in contrast with Judaism. There is no “us
versus them” mentality. Instead Christianity is presented as a
fulfillment of the Jewish faith. The only distinction is that Jesus is
recognized as the Messiah, and the emphasis on the spirit of the Jewish
Can you explain the above points??
Or you don't believe St. James?
