Joseph Atwill, who is the author of a book entitled "Caesar´s Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus", asserts that Christianity did not begin as a religion, but was actually a sophisticated government propaganda exercise used to pacify the subjects of the Roman Empire.

Mr Atwill says that acts of insurrection by Jewish sects, who were awaiting the arrival of a so-called ´warrior Messiah´ in Palestine, were a perpetual problem for the Roman Empire and that after the Empire had exhausted all traditional means of dealing with the problem they resorted to psychological warfare. "They surmised that the way to stop the spread of zealous Jewish missionary activity was to create a competing belief system," Atwill told

The statue can be seen from Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, and Israel.

The height of the bronze statue is 39 m together with the plinth, which is taller than the statue of the Christ in Rio de Janeiro (38 m). One can see the sculpture from Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, and Israel. (Public Radio of Armenia)

A new statue of Jesus Christ was erected on top of a Syrian mountain this week. The statue is taller than the Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Interfax reported:

A sculpture ensemble depicting Jesus Christ called ‘I have come to save the world’ has been erected on top of a 2,000-meter high mountain in Syria.

The statue has been placed on a historic pilgrim route from Constantinople to Jerusalem, at the Cherubim Monastery in the community of Saidnaya at an altitude of 2,100 meters above sea level, the Moscow Spiritual Academy, which supported this peacekeeping project, said in a statement.

“The ensemble with the blessing Christ in its center, seen from Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine and Israel, is designed to bring peace, mutual understanding, and hope for common salvation to a region engulfed in the flames of war,” it said.

The warring parties suspended hostilities and were watching the statue’s installation, which took three days, it said.

The monument was installed on October 14, when some Christian churches celebrate the feast of the Intercession of the Theotokos, and on the eve of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha.

Yeah, but I´m afraid it would be burned down!  Correct me if I´m wrong, but I don´t think there are too many Christian churchs being built in Turkey lately.
