Author Biography

Jubei Raziel remains somewhat an anomaly, an avant-garde of expression and philosophy. His accomplishments as an exceptional photographer, filmmaker and writer are particularly rare considering the absence of traditional education over an arduous upbringing.

Jubei grew up next door to Lin-Manuel Miranda, modeled for world renowned FORD Models, shared films scenes with the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch and Jared Leto, conversed with Steven Spielberg about gaming and even served Donald J. Trump coffee once—while enduring stretches of homelessness and hunger.

What makes Jubei Raziel a compelling narrator goes well beyond his passion and purity of an artisan. He's raw, provocative and fearless, yet compassionate, romantic and often quiet. He seeks naked veracity careless of prestige. This integral ambition bleeds into every medium he produces, defying the superficiality of trends and pop culture.

Reviewed by Jamie Michele for Readers' Favorite

Enemy of Humanity by Jubei Raziel is a non-fiction study of Christianity and the Bible, setting itself above the parapet as a wholly faithful exploration of facts, without fear of influence customarily derived from conjecture or supposition. Raziel begins with an introduction to his journey, a casual read that launched an ambitious investigation. Over the course of thirty-three chapters, Raziel is meticulous in the combing through of a wide-ranging degree of wisdom from the origins of a holy book that has been indiscriminate in who it appropriates and then recycles its texts from, to the foundational enslavement by way of a creation story that Raziel is able to succinctly dissect using intellectual reasoning and the Bible's own scripture, and on to the background of popular catchphrases such as, “Love the sinner, hate the sin,” and the reality of what they mean.

Jubei Raziel holds absolutely nothing back in Enemy of Humanity, which I found to be so much more engaging and profoundly honest than the dozens of theses I've collected over the years. The narrative is a well-constructed balance of intelligentsia and the comfortable conversational style of a man who knows what he's talking about. And Raziel definitely knows what he's talking about. My favorite parts were found in chapters eight, Contra-Christianity where contradictions are laid bare in a near-perfect laundry list of tit-for-tat scripture, and twenty-two, wherein the stunting of psychological and emotional expansion results in subservient fixation to the church, “Because they’re catalyst to the paradigm.” If you're going to read a book that digs deep into the core of Christian theology and rounds up its findings with facts, Enemy of Humanity is your stop. All aboard.

Have the contradictions in the Bible ever puzzled you? Have you ever wondered how Christianity got its start? These questions and more are covered in the fascinating non-fiction religious book, Enemy of Humanity by Jubei Raziel. Clarifying the inconsistencies of religion, most especially Christianity, Mr. Raziel endeavors to demystify and decipher some of the fallacies connected with them. Nearly every religion in the world has similar attributes, and each has the capacity to effectively influence large populations societally, governmentally, and culturally. Relying on historical and scientific studies, the author delves into the conflict and incongruities regarding the age of the earth, the birth date of Jesus, the background of Easter. For instance, did Jesus even exist? Going even further, he proves that not only are churches influential, they are the epitome of capitalism. Complete with tax breaks, theatrics and showmanship, and social entertainment, he explains how churches are lucrative and the perfect business opportunity. Questioning the contradictions and delusions prevalent in the Bible and Christian doctrines, the author covers the inconsistencies, inaccuracies, and paradoxes of Christianity.

Enemy of Humanity by Jubei Raziel is a bold and provocative non-fiction book regarding the incongruities and misconceptions of religion. Stimulating and compelling, it is a shocking and eye-opening expose revealing the history behind the Christian religion and how and why religious leaders continue to feed the delusion. It is a riveting investigative document that, although very daring, is pragmatic and quite amusing. I appreciated Mr. Raziel's courage and candor in revealing the fallacies behind religious doctrines and even religion itself. His sense of humor helped keep the book from being too dry, and I laughed in spite of myself a few times. At the conclusion of his book, the author imparts sound advice for those just leaving their Christian faith.

There has always been a dispute between Christians and non-believers on the existence of God and the validity of biblical content. While religious believers robustly defend their beliefs, non-believers struggle to sway their opinions with facts and logic. It has led to debate and any attempt to find concession from either side is virtually ignored. The non-believer's facts are regarded as opinions and the Christians' beliefs as the ultimate truth. This book examines factual material and research data to investigate the origins of Christianity, the Bible, and the religion's fundamental purposes. There are many conflicting stories, statements, and views throughout biblical text. This book will dissect the validity of biblical text and highlight the inconsistencies and inaccuracies. Enemy Of Humanity by Jubei Raziel will undoubtedly leave the most ardent Christians astounded.

Enemy of Humanity by Jubei Raziel is a compelling and informative read. I feel the facts and research presented in this guide will coax many Christians to logically question the truth behind what has been preached to them. I have learned so many shocking facts surrounding the origins of the Bible, such as the revelations around the originality of the book, stories, and the characters portrayed in it. I found the section on Christianity as a business model totally shocking. The strategies they use to tempt followers into their religions and the tactics they use to ensure the Church remains profitable left me totally stunned. Using biblical passages as evidence of the inconsistencies was so thought-provoking. The author has clearly completed vast research as the data presented was so overwhelming. The mind games and manipulation techniques used to cement a person's faith and not to question inconsistencies were also really quite unnerving. The questions in chapter 25 were fantastic and really expose how illogical Christians' beliefs are. This line from the book regarding Christian beliefs really struck me: '... demands a level of ignorance that defies logic'. I wonder if any religious studies group would be brave enough to use this in a debate?

As someone who studied in the Catholic Seminary for seven years, I find Enemy of Humanity by Jubei Raziel to be thought-provoking, essential reading that challenges Christians to rethink what they believe and propagate. The book asks critical questions about the foundations of Christianity and examines the validity of the Bible — the fundamental Christian text — in exploring its source and uncovering facts that will interest anyone who wants to discover the raison d’être of organized religion. The introduction asks a question that starts the conversation between faith and reason: “Why are religious people less intelligent?” The book explores a variety of topics, and delves deeply into the question: Can Christianity be factually, rationally, and historically justified? The answers to this question and many other questions in the book will surprise not only ordinary readers but proponents of organized religion as well.

This is a mind-blowing critique of Christianity and questioning the foundations of the Scriptural texts becomes tantamount to questioning the foundations of religious dogma. Many readers will be surprised at the author’s logic and the compelling premise of his arguments. The book features strong themes and explores how the Christian institution has used religious texts belonging to different cultures and traditions to weave a narrative that has, for millennia, enthralled believers. I loved how the author x-rays the discrepancies in Christian logic, the lack of facts in arguments that drive Christian belief, and how contradictory religious dogma is when confronted with its history and development. For instance, Christians believe that those who do not believe in Jesus Christ will not be saved, yet Christianity relies on Old Testament texts that are based on Judaism. This belief, for instance, literally tells Jews they have no place in God’s salvation. So, how does Christianity incorporate Judaism, knowing that Judaism is based on the Old Testament which is a conflicting narrative compared to the New Testament?

Enemy of Humanity is professionally researched, and Jubei Raziel did a marvelous job in demonstrating that the firestorm surrounding the veracity of religious “truths” can only be investigated through irrefutable facts. Enemy of Humanity is a powerful case against the greatest religion, Christianity, and it explores historical facts and shows readers how this religion and its basic texts were inspired by existing writings like the Epic of Gilgamesh, the Egyptian Book of the Dead, the Tanakh, the Avesta, and many more. This is one of those books that left me with undeniable facts that support the claim that organized religion appropriately reflects an establishment of business, even if believers are not aware of it, and the author provides startling underlying parallels to sustain this thesis. Financial growth and sustainability are identified as key objectives for Christian churches. The author boldly states that: "They utilize conversion strategies and acquisition tactics by way of Christian doctrine to accomplish these. Preaching is essentially conversion marketing.” Here is an eye-opening book, well-written and featuring compelling arguments. Jubei Raziel’s work will make you challenge everything you believe about Christianity and organized religion.

In what the author describes as "the most authoritative case against the world’s greatest religion," Jubei Raziel creates a comprehensive and thoroughly compiled analysis of Christianity’s most vital subject matters and their significances. Enemy of Humanity juxtaposes the facts with the unproven claims about Christianity while treating different vital questions about the validity of the widely accepted religion. Is there something valuable beyond the realm of what can be proven? Do believers really retain a faith entirely devoid of facts? Also, is religion even necessary for purposeful and significant living? And finally, is there something about Christianity that differentiates it from all other religions? The author's ambition is to provide conclusive answers to all of these questions and more, ethically and thoroughly.

As I consider myself neutral or at least respectful of others' beliefs, I like to read about different arguments for and against religion. I enjoyed reading Enemy of Humanity, which contains some strong but well researched discourse against Christianity. The questions in the book made me think about some things that had slipped my mind before reading the book even though I had gone through the Bible countless times before. Jubei Raziel's tone may sound provocative in some parts, but it does not take away from the logic of the arguments. The vastness of the details is mind-blowing: from when other religions were more popular than Christianity to the times that some books in the New Testament were written. Enemy of Humanity is perfect for people interested in a book that prompts deep thoughts about Christianity and religion in general.

I’ve been looking/waiting for a book like this to come out for a really long time. Finally a book that lays the myth of Christianity and the bible to factual rest.
