“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 Did you know that there are still people that actually believe ancient Egyptians were white? They painted pictures of themselves in color, and people are still falling for the lie of a European Egypt. Unfortunately, deceptive images like the following don't help: The irony of this false teaching is that the same people that teach it also teach that Ham is the origin of black people in the Bible. And even though the Bible is clear that Egypt (Mizraim) was one of the sons of Ham... they still teach that Egyptians were white. In ad

“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 This is perhaps one of the biggest deceptions within mainstream Christianity because there are innocent victims that use some of these images to argue "proof" that Noah's sons looked like something other than what scripture says. Let's jump right into the images. The Most Often Used Image of Deception Many Christians use this image as "proof" of Japheth being white, Ham being dark skinned, and Shem being brown skinned. What many don't know is that the images they're using are nothing more than digitally altered forms of the f

“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 The Elamites may be the final nail in the coffin of the deception of who the Hebrews were and where they came from. According to the Bible, the Hebrews descended from Abraham, who was a descendant of Shem. When the belief that Hebrews were black is brought up, it is often met with the following responses: They were olive but not black. They were Middle Eastern but not black. They were brown but not black. They were all colors. People will accept any color other than black. They will espouse any belief, no matter

“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 The story of The Tower of Babel is one of those stories that stands out in the early chapters of the Bible. According to the story, human beings had advanced to the point of being able to do anything they imagined... but who was it that led mankind to this point of advancement? We most often see the people of Babel depicted as follows: According to the Bible, it was Nimrod that founded Babel, and Nimrod is often depicted as follows: Nimrod: The Cushite We see these images and associate them with people in the Bible, but

“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 What many people don't realize is that Moses and Paul had one very interesting thing in common... they were both mistaken for African descendants of Ham (Egyptians), even though their lives were separated by nearly 2,000 years. When many people think of Moses, they often think of him as a bearded white man with a long staff. Here's an example of one such depiction of Moses from film: "Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock. And the sh

“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 If you think the cliche images of the apostle Paul are an accurate portrayal of what he really looked like... think again. While we don't have a description of many people in the Bible, Paul is one of the exceptions. According to Europeanized Christianity, the apostle Paul looked like an elderly bearded white man. Here's an image of "Paul" that was posted on Christianity Today without any regard to Biblical accuracy: According to the Bible, the following incident occurred, which gives us a very specific location to reference for

“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 One of the most widespread and accepted deception is the false European depictions of Christ. Most people will willingly admit that he was absolutely not white, but seem to be OK with continuing to push the lie. Why is it OK to change the race and ethnicity of Christ, but not his gender? If race doesn't matter, then why was his race changed in the first place? If race doesn't matter, then why don't churches protest anything that depicts him falsely? For those that are seekers of truth, we can't help but notice that

“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 Images often shape our opinion of how we view heroes, gods, goddesses, and even groups of people in other cultures. I fully believe that much of what we see now is a purposeful and planned deception to hide the truth. In this part we're going to take a look at The Virgin Mary and how her image has changed over time. The Most Common Depiction of The Virgin Mary The above picture shows how Mary has been depicted since the Catholic Church began their crusade to repeal and replace all other images that show the truth.

“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 The next Biblically inaccurate picture we're going to look at is the battle between David and Goliath. This is perhaps one of the most well known giant stories in history. However, the depictions are always wrong: There are so many things wrong with this picture that I actually had to think about where to start. So let's just start with location: According to the Bible and geography, this battle took place in Arabia, near the Egyptian border. Egypt is in Africa and before it was renamed "The Middle East" in the 1800s, Canaan (Is
