Unravelling The So-Called Pastoral Epistles – Parts 1 & 2

Prologue

For those of you not familiar with my work for Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) please allow me to explain that this series of articles is not for the faint hearted or for those new to my work. This topic is heavy going and could easily be described as a deep end subject, especially if you are a King James Bible (KJV) idolator, that is, you worship the KJV as being inerrant (100% true) – unfortunately a fallacy for the Spiritually blind.

If you are a newbie or a beginner in The Faith I would certainly recommend that you read a few of my other articles, first, in order to give yourself a foundation in The Truth, before attempting this series which, even I, after 35+ years of study, am finding very challenging and in need of much Holy Spiritual guidance in order to put them together.

I do not enjoy being critical of the KJV as I still believe it to be the best English translation of The Holy Scriptures, however when error is discovered in its pages we cannot close our eyes or, more importantly, our hearts and minds, and begin a life of living in denial of The Truth. These issues have to faced head on and confronted and then dealt with. The same applies to fear. Fear has to be confronted, challenged and overcome. Start running from fear and you will never stop running – the coward dies a 1,001 deaths!

Please note, this series is a first attempt at this huge subject and will be ammended and edited as I discover more Truth and expose more errors to add to its pages, but suffice it to say there is most definitely a case for questioning the authenticity of these three Epistles.

Having said that I do not believe that The Pastoral Epistles should be expunged from the The Holy Scriptures, because there is some Truth in them but at the same time those verses of Truth are surrounded by many errors – the errors of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion.

Introduction

The Pastoral Epistles is a name that has been conjured up by someone, or some people, for three of Paul’s letters in the New Testament: 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus. Unofficially included in this grouping is 2 Peter which, allegedly, is also of spurious origin and that is the issue with all four of these books of the New Testament – their questionable authorship.

So where does this title come from, would be my first question regarding this tetchy subject? All the historical information I can find points to the commencement of the 19th century when Bible scholars began to question their authenticity, but I have no idea who originally coined the term. Perhaps someone could shed some Light on it.

From The Bible Hub: “History of the Christian Church, Volume I, Philip Schaff ”

“The three Pastoral Epistles, two to Timothy and one to Titus, form a group by themselves, and represent the last stage of the apostle’s life and labors, with his parting counsels to his beloved disciples and fellow-workers. They show us the transition of the apostolic church from primitive simplicity to a more definite system of doctrine and form of government. This is just what we might expect from the probable time of their composition after the first Roman captivity of Paul, and before the composition of the Apocalypse.”

Philip Schaff was a Calvinist preacher from that 19th century period and we can immediately see that he was of that snobbish, elitist, self-righteous, religious mind set when he condescendingly refered to the first century Congregations of God as having a primitive simplicity. Now pay attention dear people for this arrogant puffed up spirit and attitude is crucial in understanding the same spirit that pervades throughout the Pastoral Epistles. And now for a Holy Scripture that proves my point:

2 Corinthians 11:3 (KJV) But I fear, lest by any means, as The Serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (Emphasis mine)

Here we can plainly see that Mr Schaff, the Calvinist, had allowed his mind (via Satan’s subtilty) to be corrupted and displayed by his vain disparaging opinion of the first century Congregations of God by calling them primitively simple. Rather him than me when he stands before Yashua Messiah in the first resurrection.

Furthermore, he compounds his vanity by stating, and I quote: “to a more definite system of doctrine and form of government.” So this ignorant man thought, just like the author of the Pastoral Epistles, that the first century church and its TRUE SIMPLE BELIEFS in Yashua Messiah and its simple egalitarian non-structure could be improved upon. Delusional vanity or what!?

As a final point I will raise the issue of the artificial religious construct known as the ‘Apostolic Church’. This term, like so many others created by the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion, cannot be found in the Holy Scriptures, nor can the word ‘apostolic’, now there’s a surprise. So here’s a question: Did Yashua Messiah come to this earth in order to plant HIS CHURCH – The Church of God or hand it over to His messengers, pompously called apostles, from the Greek word ‘apostolos’, by the religious translators of the KJV, and rename it the Church of The Apostles? For I tell you straight folks, that is exactly what the term ‘Apostolic Church’ means and The Church of God it is not.

Are you beginning to see The Light dear readers? because I have not even started analysing 1 Timothy 1:1 yet and already one of those who would try and support these Epistles as genuine has already been unceremoniously found out!

OK, the problems that are the so-called Pastoral Epistles. As already stated, the Pastoral Epistles constitute 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus. Although not included, 2 Peter also falls into the same questionable category re being authentic Holy Scripture and, not as claimed, as being written by the named authors.

Now with regard to the two books of Timothy and the book of Titus, are they the genuine writings of Paul or of a forger of a later date, as some Bible Scholars confidently declare? Taking that question further, if they are the writings of a forger and, I might add to some degree, a plagiariser, can we even challenge their right to be a part of what they call the Biblical Canon or even the inspired Word of God?

Let’s face it, the Biblical Canon was put together by religious people, with an evil Romish agenda, who would be very happy with the Pastoral Epistles and their content, hence the reasons for their inclusion in that Canon, and their defence of them today as being the authentic writings of Paul.

We need to get this Truth firmly fixed in our minds that the satanic religious spirit that pervaded the second, third and fourth centuries with its Hellenising philosophers still pervades today in the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion of the 21st century – NOTHING has changed.

Paul, too, gave us this timeless warning:

Colossians 2:8 (KJV) BEWARE! lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, AND NOT AFTER CHRIST. (Emphasis mine)

Again, let’s be clear, for the aim of second, third and fourth century Hellenising philosophers was ALWAYS the usurping and supplanting of the True Church – the Church of God and putting in its place: “a more definite system of doctrine and form of government.” to quote our ‘friend’ Mr Schaff.

This is the more definite system of the Nicolaitans as mentioned by Yashua Messiah in Revelation TWICE!

Revelation 2:6 (KJV) But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

Revelation 2:15 (KJV) So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. (All emphasis mine)

Notice that these evil people of the Hellenistic NICOLAITAN persuation had deeds and a DOCTRINE. Now what could those deeds and doctrine have been? The very same deeds and doctrine that Mr Schaff was rambling on about – things allegedly ‘superior’ to the primitive simplicity of the first century egalitarian Congregations of God.

Nico = To rule; Laitan = The laity; = To rule over the laity; = Something that Yashua Messiah HATES!! = “A more definite system of doctrine and form of government.” = the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion in ALL its guises with its Popes, Archbishops, Cardinals, Bishops, Ministers, Vicars, and satanic Priests called ‘Fathers’ etc. etc.. Non-egalitarian pecking orders with men lording it over other men who are their equals in God’s sight and with no God given authority whatsoever.

Fortunately, and as an aside, by the year 35 AD the Church of God had been planted in Britain and was not contaminated by the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion until the arrivals of the Papist devils Augustine (not Augustine of Hippo) and Patrick the slave trader in circa 597 AD.

I think that will do for part one, part two coming up shortly.

Unravelling The So-Called Pastoral Epistles – Part 2

Plagiarising

Without further ado I will get straight in with more opinions from the ‘experts’ and as one commentator (Leighton Pullan) from The Bible Hub put it:

“Their genuineness is more frequently denied than that of any other of St. Paul’s Epistles, and this attack upon their genuineness has been mostly based upon the character of their teaching about the office-bearers of the Church. Attempts have sometimes been made to separate some fragments supposed to be genuine from the remaining portions. All such attempts have failed. These Epistles must either be rejected entirely or accepted entirely. Otherwise we become involved in a hopeless tangle of conjectures.”

Having quoted this opinion, which I agree with in part, the major question for me here is this: Are these Epistles an intregral part of the early beginnings of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion (primarily Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy) through a Hellenising philosopher(s) author making out that he was Paul, or not? If I can prove that there is much Hellenising philosophy and/or meaningless BS in terms of early religious jargon terms and expressions (allegedly a more definite system of doctrine) then the case for them being forgeries is a done deal, and, as he correctly put it: “These Epistles must either be rejected entirely or accepted entirely.”

However, I will add one caveat to that regarding his comment: “to separate some fragments supposed to be genuine from the remaining portions.” The point he has obviously missed is this: If someone sets out to deceive by making out they are someone else then they MUST at times use thoughts, ideas and material that will attempt to make them look like the man they are trying to impersonate. This will then mean that they are playing the old half-truth telling trick. We need to realise that without some Truth in the narrative the scam will easily be rumbled. This game is not new and it’s played some of the time in the mainstream fake news media today and even more so in the internet alternative media.

So let’s analyse Mr Pullan’s comment a little further: “Their genuineness is more frequently denied than that of any other of St. Paul’s Epistles.” Now why would that be I wonder? Has he really done his homework in an open minded unbiased way to find out what the reasoning is behind this frequency of denial? I would suggest that he has not. I would also suggest that he, like Philip Schaff, is already convinced of their alleged authenticity and sets about defending his flawed position.

He then states: “this attack upon their genuineness has been mostly based upon the character of their teaching about the office-bearers of the Church.” Question: When did Yashua Messiah, or Paul for that matter, declare the need for ‘office bearers’? When did the need for corporate officials or officialdom become necessary in God’s egalitarian Church? Certainly not in the first century church that’s for sure, so when did these satanic ideas creep in? Answer: As soon as, if not before, the Messengers (apostles) had died. The second century AD was the time when most of these blasphemers crawled out of the woodwork and asserted themselves as leaders and mouth pieces of this planned philosophised, Hellenised counterfeit church.

Here is a list of the counterfeiting scoundrels involved in founding the Hellenised Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion, from the “Catholic Fidelity” web page:

Clement I, 4th Bishop of Rome, circa end of the first century. This is not the Clement of Paul’s time.

Ignatius of Antioch, died 110 AD

Polycarp of Symrna, places and dates 65 – 140 AD Allegedley a stalwart of the early Congregations of God.

Unknown Author of The Didache (The Teaching), Syria dates 70 – 110 AD. Author of what teaching?

Barnabus, circa 130 AD, so could not be the first century Barnabus as claimed on this site.

Papias of Hierapolis, Phyrgia circa 130 AD

Justin Martyr, circa 100-165 AD, philosopher and theologian.

Irenaeus, circa 140 – 202 AD

Clement of Alexandria, place and dates, Athens circa 150? – 215? AD

Tertullian, convert to the Christian Religion circa 190 – 195 AD. Sorcerer and conjurer of the pagan heathen Trinity doctrine circa 200 AD.

Origen, Alexandria circa 185? – 254? AD

If necessary I will provide more details of what these villains got up to, but as this series of articles is not specifically about the devious shennanigans of the so-called ‘Church Fathers’ (I cover the subject elsewhere on my blog) I will leave it there.

And now a quote from the “Early Christian Writings” web page.

“Vocabulary. While statistics are not always as meaningful as they may seem, of 848 words (excluding proper names) found in the Pastorals, 306 are not in the remainder of the Pauline corpus, even including the deutero-Pauline 2 Thessalonians, Colossians, and Ephesians. Of these 306 words, 175 do not occur elsewhere in the New Testament, while 211 are part of the general vocabulary of Christian writers of the second century. Indeed, the vocabulary of the Pastorals is closer to that of popular Hellenistic philosophy than it is to the vocabulary of Paul or the deutero-Pauline letters. Furthermore, the Pastorals use Pauline words in a non-Pauline sense: dikaios in Paul means “righteous” and here means “upright”; pistis, “faith,” has become “the body of Christian faith”; and so on.”

As this series progresses I will reveal several of these crucial words that prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that these three Epistles are not from the hand of Paul and are most definitely from the hand of a Hellenising philosopher of the 2nd century and a founder of the satanic Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion.

Right, let’s make a start with the first verses of 1 Timothy 1:

1 Timothy 1:1-2 (KJV) Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope; 2 Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Timothy 1:1-2 notes — This introduction is plagiarised from Paul’s earlier genuine Epistles, but with the addition of a greeting to Timothy which Paul probably did write, but the real Epistle was either lost or destroyed. We have to assume this because Timothy was a learner of Paul’s and we can be fairly sure Paul did write to him but not the nonsense that follows in verse 4 onwards:

1 Timothy 1:3 (KJV) As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine.

1 Timothy 1:3 notes — Instructions from Paul to Timothy which again are probably a genuine part of the original Epistle with instructions to remain in Ephesus, now lost or destroyed. However, I say, now lost or destroyed, because the Epistle now changes from the plagiarising part of the first half to counterfeiting in the second half of this verse. How do I know this? Answer: through the use of one suspicious word – ‘charge’ and one suspicious term – ‘no other doctrine’ combined with what then follows in verse 4.

Now the word ‘doctrine’ is one of those crucial words that I made reference to earlier. This is due to the fact that three Greek words are are involved here and this Greek word in 1 Tim 1:3 is partly the odd one out, being: ‘heterodidaskaleō’. The other two words are these: ‘didachē’ (Strong’s G1322) and ‘didaskalia’ (Strong’s G1319)

Moreover, here is where it gets very interesting. The word ‘didachē‘ (instruction) cannot be found anywhere in 1 & 2 Timothy or Titus and yet it is found in Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans and 1 Corinthians. In contrast all that can be found in 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus is the word ‘didaskalia’ (instruction – teaching) – if we then take the word ‘heterodidaskaleō’ we can see that it comes from ‘didaskalia’ and not ‘didachē’. So what!! I here you exclaim. Ah but there is much more to this than meets the eye as explained here:

From: “Is Doctrine a Dirty Word?” by Peter Ditzel

“”Doctrine/doctrines” appears fifty times in the King James Version New Testament. With the exception of one place (Hebrews 6:1 where it is translated from logos), it comes from either of two Greek words, didache and didaskalia. Didaskalia is derived from didaskalos, which means “teacher.” Didache comes from the verb didasko, “to teach.” Thus, strictly, didaskalia refers to the teaching of a teacher.”

So here we have that crucial difference explained and why ‘didache’ (Strong’s G1322) applies to Yashua Messiah’s and Paul’s instruction and ‘didaskalia’ (Strong’s G1319) applies to the teaching of a teacher, which leads us to the knock on question – WHICH TEACHER and WHAT TEACHING!!?? Answer: the teaching of Hellenising philosophers and religious counterfeiters.

If we now move straight on into verse 4 we can see how it is a continuation of the second part of verse 3 and notice, too, that from here on in (verse 4) we now enter a part fictional, part truthful, made up and fabricated la la land narrative with religious writings by an unknown early Hellenising religious author, most likely circa 150 AD, and long after Paul’s death. He, or they, would have been one of the alleged ‘Church Fathers’ of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion, which was always a counterfeit and not officially organised until the Council of Nicea in 325 AD. However, in the meantime this satanic edifice had been nearly 300 years in the making, commencing with the Canaanite Jew Philo in Alexandria (philosophy) in the first century along with Simon Magus the sorcerer in Rome – the lover of filthy lucre. All these elements came together in Nicea in 325 AD under Constantine.

Second half of 1 Timothy 1:3 and 1 Timothy 1:4 (KJV) That thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine. 4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. (Emphasis mine)

1 Timothy 1:4 Notes part 1 — “Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies.”

What are these ‘fables’ that this Hellenising author could be refering to? More on this later.

Furthermore, if there was to be no heeding of genealogies and the study of same, then what are Matthew 1:1-17 and Luke 3:23-38 if they are not genealogies? In turn, why would Yashua Messiah object to his brothers and sisters in the faith studying up their own Israelite genealogies? And who determines what genealogies come under the umbrella of “endless genealogies”? And who would be opposed to such genealogies and for what reason? Would Paul? Who was proud of his Benjaminite tribal origins:

Romans 11:1 (KJV) I say then, Hath God cast away His people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

Philippians 3:5 (KJV) Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee.

Please note Paul was not a Jew.

Moreover, what information do genealogies provide us with? Why, the origins of different peoples as listed in the Old Testament and who hates the Old Testament? Why Rome hates the Old Testament and so do the Canaanite Jews with their Babylonian Talmud, the mainstay of their satanic Judaic religion.

So what does the first part of 1 Tim 1:4 constitute? It was an early Hellenising Romish dictat to dissuade people from researching True Israelite history and the identity of the True intended recipients of the Gospel message as instructed by Yashua Messiah Himself:

Matthew 15:24 (KJV) But He answered and said, I am not sent but unto The Lost Sheep of The House of Israel.

He also gave the twelve disciples explicit intructions:

Matthew 10:5-6 (KJV) These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to The Lost Sheep of The House of Israel.

1 Timothy 1:4 notes part 2 — “Which minister questions.” Yet more of the tyranny of Catholicism revealed re unquestioning obedience – no Bereans or questioning allowed in this church, just blind faith and obedience.

1 Timothy 1:4 notes part 3 — Edifying – Strong’s 3622 – Administration. Everywhere else (7 times) the word ‘edifying’ – means “building up” see Strong’s 3619.

This word ‘edifying’ from the Greek MSS ‘oikonomia’ which means ‘administration’ is telling us quite plainly what this Hellenising philosopher writer has in mind, that is, only one thing – a church corporation – a money making church corporation and not the Spiritual Congregation of God that needed REAL edifying, that is, building up and/or encouraging and supporting.
