1 Peter 1:18-20 "You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways
inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold,
but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or
spot. He was destined before the foundation of the world but was made manifest
at the end of the times for your sake."
Says absolutely nothing about Christ = pardon. Christos is interpreted
into English as Christ - anointed, a very common bible practice and not unique
to Jesus. Pauls teaching is in direct opposition to the teachings of Jesus
(an antichrist) who clearly says that we are like him:
John 14:12 “I can guarantee this truth: Those who believe in me will do
the things that I am doing. They will do even greater things because I am going
to the Father."
As you read that verse in 1 Peter, are you aware that Saul was a Christian
killing Roman Pharisee who never ever met Jesus? Saul was blinded
on the road to Damascus and never regained his sight - keeping always the ways
of the Pharisees. It is the Pharisees who have taken over the Nazarenes
(Acts 24:5 states this very clearly) and renamed it "Christianity."
Jesus message was not unique and says very clearly that those who believed
John the Baptist (not Jesus) would enter the kingdom of god:
Matthew 21:31: Jesus said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you that tax
collectors and harlots enter the kingdom of God before you. For John came to you
in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him; but tax collectors
and harlots believed him; and when you saw it, you did not afterward relent
and believe him.
Tax collectors and harlots believed John the Baptist and entered the kingdom
of god. It wasn't even unique to Jesus. So anyone who believes in
and pursues the kingdom of god - regardless of who teaches it, will enter the
kingdom of god.
