With any book, there is always the possibility of the reader misunderstanding the writer, or even worse, ending up following somebody elses misinterpretation of it. The bible is not an exception to this. However, since the bible is a religious document, any misunderstanding or misinterpretation of it, leads to a faulty belief system.

The meanings of some things in the bible are 100% clear, and is understood without much confusion. Jesus’ birth, his mother, his persecution by the Jews etc. If these were disputed, christians would be quick to pull up verses which directly addresses the issue, and end the matter quickly.

However, certain doctrines crucial to christianity, such as the “trinity”,”original sin” and “sin sacrifice” are the subject of ongoing debate, mainly because of a number of biblical statements which directly contradict those doctrines. What we know as “christianity” is basically a set of unbiblical man-made doctrines arising from grave misunderstandings and faulty interpretations of the bible.

Here are a few examples :
Christian doctrine teaches : God is a trinity.
The Bible shows : God and His prophets and Jesus explicitly teach that God is one. Jesus never taught “Hear O Israel, your God is triune”.

Christian doctrine teaches : Sin sacrifice; that Jesus died for our sins and that whoever believes so will be redeemed of sin.
The Bible shows : The “sacrifice” was a Roman execution procedure. There was nothing ritualistic about it. Neither God nor His prophets and Jesus ever taught that people are redeemed by believing Jesus died for their sins.

Christian doctrine teaches : Original sin.; all people are tainted with the sin of Adam and Eve.
The Bible shows : God has always distinguished between righteous and evil. Starting from Abel, son of Adam who God was pleased.

We see that none of these doctrines are directly affirmed through a statement by God, Jesus and the prophets… but are instead contradicted. We also see that the doctrines conflict with a biblical theme thats consistent throughout the bible. So, Christians resort to compositing several unrelated verses from all over the bible, so as to be able to present their doctrine as having biblical basis. This approach is akin to taking a book and cutting/pasting words and sentences around to present a different story.

Lets take the doctrine of Jesus’ sin sacrifice to redeem the believer of his sins as a case study.
OT verses pertaining to animal sacrifice are often cited, and parallels are drawn between Jesus and the unblemished animal… and also the animals purpose to erase sins is cited to parallel Jesus’ purpose to do the same.

Very well then, lets look at the differences between the OT animal sacrifices and the supposed sacrifice of Jesus. In order for Jesus’ execution to be the “sin sacrifice” that was supposedly foreshadowed by the OT animal sacrifices, there needs to be consistencies in the similiarities.

To illustrate what I am talking about, I made a comparative chart.

Yet, christians gloss over these vital differences and still maintain that Jesus’ execution had a ritualistic purpose. This is just one example of faulty scripture citing to present a doctrine as biblically sound.

I have made a more detailed thread regarding this particular example here.

The point of this thread is to demonstrate how “christian” doctrine is a world apart from the source scripture.
Those who preach a certain doctrine, do so only after manipulating the listener into accepting their flawed interpretation of whats there in the bible. The reason a dispute even exists regarding christian doctrine is because it is unbiblical by itself.

This is why anyone who disagrees with christian doctrine can use the bible itself to prove the doctrine mongers wrong. 

Now, in conclusion… what if we could get someone who has never heard of christianity to read the bible on his own? Will finish and develop an understanding that resembles the christian doctrines of “trinity”, “sin sacrifice”, “original sin” and so on?

Or will he come to understand the bible in a completely different way?
