제가 근거를 든 세 인물 중에 유스티노 순교자(Justin Martyr)의 '첫번째 사과(First Apology of Justin Martyr)'에 나오는 대목을 인용합니다.(이 양반 뭘 그렇게 죽을 죄를 졌는지 또 두번째 사과(Second Apology of Justin Martyr)까지 했습니다. ^^)
거기에 나오는 대목입니다. 일해야 하니까.... 번역은 알아서들 하시고.... 해당 부분만 발췌해 드립니다.
But now that he had revealed the similarities between Christianity and paganism, Justin Martyr had created another problem for himself: If Jesus really was the only true son of god, Justin had to explain why the pagans had been telling the same stories for centuries before Jesus was (allegedly) born - and that's where he shows just how conniving a Christian can be.
Still in chapter 31, he goes on to reveal his theory of "Diabolical Mimicry" or "Plagiarism In Anticipation". The Devil (said Justin Martyr) knew that Jesus was coming to save all mankind and so the Devil tricked earlier generations into telling the Jesus story as if it was a fable and then, when Jesus finally arrived to perform his miracles, he appeared to be just another mythical character with no more substance than the other sons of god who had preceded him:
...these same evil spirits, by their instruments, the poets, dressed up fables to represent these things as already past and over, on purpose to defeat the good designs of His coming; just such another pack of scandalous wicked lies they have at present invented to render Christians odious
Later, in chapters 69 and 70 of his "Dialogue With Trypho" Justin Martyr provides even more details about his theory of Diabolical Mimicry:
저는 여전히 종교 교리논쟁에 관심없습니다. 하지만, 흐강님의 이중잣대에 의한 교리의 강요에 대하여는 반드시 짚고 넘어가겠습니다.
