Zeitgeist, the Movie is a film produced by Peter Joseph and released initially via Google Video in June of 2007. It attempts to refute claims of Christianity as to the very existence of Jesus of Nazareth, instead claiming the story of Jesus, the man and Jesus the Messiah is simply an amalgam of more ancient stories from prior pagan cultures, principally from the Egyptian Sun god Horus. The movie goes further to claim the attacks of 9-11 were the result of a great conspiracy of which the U.S. Government was complicit, then, finally asserts a grand banking conspiracy involving the U.S., the Federal Reserve, the World Bank and various nebulous organizations that may or may not actually exist. Zeitgeist means “the spirit of the times.”
Zeitgeist thus presents the pet theories of the Soros-lead left that blame all of the worlds ills on Christians, America and “the rich.”
The video linked above, from Beit Shalom Ministries refutes the thesis of Zeitgeist thoroughly and convincingly. Christians should be aware of this attack on our faith and be prepared to refute its claims. Fortunately, this isn’t that hard when you see how deceptive and ridiculous some of the claims are.
