Shroud of Turin a Hoax
From the book 'A World Deceived'
For centuries people have worshipped the "Shroud of Turin" as the burial cloth of Christ, although it can be confirmed that it is a hoax, using the very words of Scripture.
Turning to John 11:44 we read the following: "And he (Lazarus) that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin." The word napkin comes from the Greek word "soudarion" which is a sweat cloth or towel used for wiping perspiration from the face or for binding the face of a corpse. We see here clearly that a separate cloth was used for the face.
When we read John 20: 6-7 we read the following: "Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, and the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself."
We clearly see here that, not only was a separate cloth used for Christ's head, but that it was even placed in a different location.
This confirms that the Shroud of Turin - a single cloth measuring 14 feet, 3 inches by 3 feet, 7 inches, believed to have been used for the burial of Jesus Christ and bearing his features - is a hoax.
I am sure that many will wonder why for centuries this has remained such a mystery, since the Bible disproves its very existence so clearly. In the following readings you will find that the gospel of Jesus Christ, and all the rest of Scripture, is a mystery to the natural man: Matt 13:35, Rom 16:25, 1 Cor 2:7,14, Eph 3:9 and Col 1:26.
This is the result of the sinful nature of mankind and its choice to continue to live according to the spirit and rudiments of this world, controlled by Satan, who is the master of sin. For this reason all of mankind continues to be blinded and separated from the truth and the Spirit of God (John 8:42-45; 1 John 3:8 and Rev 12:9).
For thirty-eight years, I myself walked in bondage under the elements of this world (Gal 4:3), and did service unto them, which by nature are no gods (Gal 4:8).
Throughout the history of the Roman Church, the Pope has claimed to preside over the Chair of Peter. First of all, Peter was never a Pope. He was an apostle, servant and a soldier for Christ. Some historians have said that he died in Rome by the hand of the Romans.
Concerning the so-called "Chair of Peter", a scientific commission appointed by Pope Paul in July of 1968 has now reported that no part of the chair is old enough to date from the time of Peter. In the official report on the carbon dating and other tests, it has been determined that the chair is no older than the ninth century.
The above revelation (Eph 1:17 and Eph 3:3-5) is the first of many to this present world. This world will see (and already has) many manifestations of the sons of God (Rom 8:19), before the glorious appearing of the Great God and our Savior Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13).
Many readers may find the things we write about rather controversial or even evil (1 Peter 2:12 and 1 Peter 3:16). However, as it is our wish that all mankind come to the true knowledge of Jesus Christ, we ask that you will take the time to study all the scriptural references, so that your eyes may be opened to the truth also.
Be assured that the sons of God have come to the pulling down of strongholds (2 Cor 10:4 and Matt 10:26-28), religion being the strongest of them all.
