Now, I still believe that Christianity was meant to be taken as pure symbolisim and not literal, this is Christianities greatest folly and untill the

And once again in the west,
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new" - 2 CORINTHIANS
Christians need to be more open minded to the ultimate Christos within....
