A commentary in 'Economist'
on the shared narratives of the Abrahamic religions....
Among secular writers, yet another theory is now in fashion: Jesus was one more among the many Jewish-nationalist rebels against Rome, but his message was distorted by Paul into a quietist one which suited Rome better.
I'd been wondering about that possibility. Didn't realize others had the same thought. I'd already speculated
that Jesus was an Agent Provocateur for Rome, similar to FBI terrorist stings. Recently, when thinking about the role of CIA in some leftist groups I'd been around, it struck me that Saul/Paul was a "FORMER" Roman bureaucrat, just like the "FORMER" CIA dudes who were instigating our groups to "serve the Soviets". His alleged conversion sounded a WHOLE LOT like the conversion stories of those CIA types. (Any radical group loves to display converted sinners to illustrate the force of its ideology. How can you distinguish the real reformed sinners from the APs? Just look at the three-letter equation. If SIN = CIA or SIN = FBI, the conversion is not genuine.)

Overall the commentary makes sense but misses one big point. Each of the three main religions has a Natural Law end and a secular Satanic end. Most of Islam has remained close to Natural Law. Some national forms are softer, but they aren't OPPOSED to NL. Christianity is about half and half. The rich denominations in the North have gone all the way over to Satan. Eastern and Southern groups (Soviet Bloc, Africa, Dixie) are still NL. Same with Judaism, except that the rich Satanic side now owns nearly all the territory. Some NL Jews remain in Israel itself.
The Satanic ends don't need any help in uniting. Antichrist Bergoglio and Antibishop Welby and the Trans leaders of Methodist, Presbyterian, etc, are furiously raging together with Soros to destroy civilization.
The NL team needs to get its ass in gear, needs to stop fussing about abstract theology. A black Pentecostal and a white Southern Baptist and an African Anglican and a Persian Muslim agree firmly on the rules for proper civilization. All are opposed to Soros on the same issues.
