Wow a fight on theology and the arguments on one of the oldest texts in print. Well I figured to chime in on this one. To begin I would like to
restate something that a very wise man once stated. As the story goes, he took a copy of the Quoran, a copy of the Holy bible and a copy of the
Vedics and stated this: It does not matter what you believe in, just that you believe. Now are some of what is in the Bible questionable? Yes,
there are alot of unanswered questions, but still it is a point to begin. Faith is at the begining of Wisdom, not at its end and it take faith to
believe that perhaps, just perhaps Jesus did walk this earth, that yes his mother was a Virgin at the time of his birth and that just maybe he really
did die, not from the crucisfixion, but rather from the sharp point of a spear. But that is called taking a leap of faith. Now do I believe he had
brothers and sisters, Yes. Do I believe that he lived by the laws of Moses as put down and followed by the residents of Isreal at that time, yes. It
is also known that in the bible as it is written, there were other books that were left out. Only a few books were added, and partially because it
was the message that was in the texts that the early writers wanted to get across to the world. In reality there are a lot of texts and spiritual
writings that are out there. You just have to go searching for them. I am especially interested to see the translated copy of the Gospel of Judas.
And it makes one person wonder why make a disciple a scape goat in the gospels. What I find even more interesint is the Nag Himadi library tends to
disagree with some of the points in the Gospels on what happened. Where people tend to get into trouble is not that they do not know the message, but
rather only take part of the message and then spew it out. I also find it real funny when most good Christians, are asked do you follow all of the
laws in the Bible? Most say yes. I one day got real curious, and went a step further and stated, "Including those in the old and New testaments?"
And still got a yes. The look on peoples faces when I started asked, "So does this mean we get to stone you for having that shrimp cocktaile?" Or
how about this one, "Since the City goes for about 40 miles in all directions, can you direct me to the best rout to get out about 5 miles away so I
can go to the restroom."
But I digress. The bible is a wonderful book. Who are we to say otherwise, or even to state blankly that Jesus did not walk, or what God is, we do
not have enough information.
The other question and this may be along the lines of a conspiracy, is what has the Catholic church not been wanting us to see or read? Consider this
all Christian churches have their roots in catholocism, and the Vatican has an archieve of documents that no one, since the time of their writing,
lost and discovery, has seen. What is in there that they do not want us to see, and if it got out, what would it mean for any church?
