About the Christians

In our ongoing serialization of the arguments of Celsus against the Christians, I bring to your notice what he writes about those who become Christians.

What is said by a few who are considered as Christians, concerning the doctrine of Jesus and the precepts of Christianity, is not designed for the wiser but for the more unlearned and ignorant part of mankind. For the following are their precepts; let no one who is erudite accede to us, no one who is wise, no one who is prudent [for these things are thought by us to be evil] but let anyone who is unlearned, who is stupid, who is an infant in understanding boldly come to us.

    Given the rabid advocacy of exclusion, hatred and marginalization of current leaders and followers of this particular belief system, in my humble opinion, he has defined each and every one of the qualifications for membership in this society of believers.
