From the records of history, a number of fundamental questions are shouting out for answers concerning the historicity of Jesus Christ, and they stem from a series of ignored statements made by numerous popes. For example, Pope Boniface VIII (1294-1303) stood up at a General Council at the University of Paris and, in front of King Philip of France, five archbishops, and twenty-two bishops, said;
‘There was no Jesus Christ and the Eucharist is just flour and water. Mary was no more a virgin than my own mother, and there is no more harm in adultery than in rubbing your hands together’.
(A History of the Popes, Dr. Joseph McCabe, Rector of Buckingham College; d. 1955; C. A. Watts and Co, London; also, Encyclopedia Britannica; Pope Boniface VIII; c. d. 1303).
Pope Alexander VI (1431-1503) also revealed his true thoughts about Christianity, saying; ‘Almighty God! How long will this superstitious sect of Christians, and this upstart invention, endure?’ (Secrets of the Christian Fathers, Bishop J. W. Sergerus, 1685).
