Is the essence, the brilliance of Christianity summed up in that beloved verse, John 3:16? No, just NO. When we take a close look at this text, the bad theology becomes obvious.

It’s a scandal what God failed to include in more than a thousand pages of “inspired” Bible. Humans have suffered horribly because of God’s negligence.

Upon just a little study and reflection, we can see that John, chapter 3, is bad theology, especially that most beloved verse, John 3:16​.

The inconvenient truth is that reliable, verifiable information about Jesus does not exist. The gospels offer no solution because they were written decades later, and never name credible sources that meet the standards expected by historians.

The Jesus portrayed in John’s gospel is so full of himself: arrogant and egoistical, he struts and brags. The church has convinced Christians to adore this Jesus, but John’s gospel should be a turnoff. His Jesus is a prototype for countless pretentious, conceited cult fanatics who have followed this example.

Christianity has succeeded because of the appeal of magical thinking. But the core briefs of this major world religion are shockingly bad, e.g., God set up a human sacrifice scheme to enable forgiveness of sins—and eating the flesh and drinking the blood of the human sacrifice will guarantee eternal life. Could it get any worse? Snap out of it.

Just a few verses in Romans 7 reveal that the apostle Paul was a deeply damaged person. “Belonging to Christ” was the goal he advocated, but he couldn’t seem to manage it himself. He left too much bad advice and bad theology in his wake.

We get a strong taste of Paul’s bad theology in one of the earliest Christian documents, his first letter to the Thessalonians. In the fourth chapter he promises them a meeting with Jesus in the clouds, in which both living and dead Christians will take part. This is fantasy theology, based on his hallucinations. Comic book writers who create flying super-heroes know they’re making up stuff for good fun, but Paul was serious. He failed at reality-based thinking.

Every religious fundamental you take for granted: try to find out where it came from. Who thought of it first? What can you do to verify it? All priests and preaches ask their followers to accept received beliefs on faith. But serious research and study usually uncover the human origins of “sacred truths.” Reliable, verifiable, objective evidence is missing.

No matter how much preachers stress feel-good Bible verses, the vengeful God of the Old Testament didn’t get a makeover when Jesus came along. He’s right there in the words of Jesus, some of which are really bad.
