APOLLONIUS OF TYANA

Recommended Posts

Consciousness

For over sixteen centuries, the Christian Church has been preaching its religion to the world.

Yet when we consider the horrible events that have occurred among professedly Christian peoples during the recent world holocaust, resulting in the death of a significant portion of the world's population, we must conclude that there is something radically wrong with a religion, which, after having been preached and practiced for so many centuries, has led its followers to such a terrible state of affairs, involving the conversion of this planet into one vast slaughterhouse, drenched in human blood, resulting from the mass murder of Christians of one nation by fellow-Christians of another, each being urged on and blessed by their own priests.

And could a church whose Inquisition has left such a black record behind it be expected to offer us a written document (The New Testament) that could be accepted on face value as the authentic words of a man who taught peace, forgiveness and kindness, rather than bloody murder? And might it not be possible that not only the teachings but also the life history, and even the name of the Nazarene, could, during the course of centuries, have been altered by the ecclesiastical scribes of the Church of Rome in the interests of its dogmas and ambitions for temporal power?

That was indeed the case, and it is the object of the following pages, devoted to the life and teachings of this unknown man, to prove it. Two thousand years ago a great teacher of humanity appeared in the world. He was a philosopher, a social leader, a moral teacher, a religious reformer and a healer. From one end of the Roman Empire to the other, wherever he went, divine honors were bestowed upon him - by all, from slave to emperor.

He was undoubtedly the greatest man of his age; and his date of birth (4 B.C. [=3 BCE, scientific]) and period of activity coincided exactly with those of the Christian Messiah, except that his life of incessant labor in behalf of humanity extended for over a century, during which time he preserved his health of body and brilliance of mind unimpaired by the passage of time. He was a supreme exemplar of human perfection - physically, mentally and spiritually.

Over seventeen temples were erected in honor of him in various parts of the Roman Empire.

His name was APOLLONIUS OF TYANA.
