As I said I was only answering a,question..That seemed of interest yo a poster.<quoted text>I believe it is the Gnostic Gospels, which one leader or another (maybe King James??) had stricken from the books of the Bible, because it outlined and described the MARRIAGE of Jesus to Mary Magdalen....and the fact that he planned to set her at the helm of his new religion after his death. The Disciples weren't very keen on that idea at all.
Yet another indication that men directed the Bible's teachings, rather than God.
My belief in the Divine is nowhere near as contradictory or confounding as Christianity. I think I'll keep what I've got.
We believe the bible alone is inspired.
Gnostics,or whoever can make up whatever they want
As for your beliefs ..I don't understand them but you can BELUEVE as you wish:) and enjoy your freedom to do so.
Even my. F s with says I am to spread the word..plant a,seed..But nothing says HIT PEOPLE over the head to BELiEVE me.
I tell the truth in the best way I can as Christian...if anyone wants more please ask.:)
