Or you can believe in stories from about 1900 years ago that were written by unknown authors,(the earliest manuscripts in human hands are the Codex Vaticanus and Siniaticus, which are only 1500 years old) and by those men who had the first issues scribed.<quoted text>
If Jesus is telling you (in spirit) that all other Christians before us got it all wrong, then Jesus Christ is a fraud. He never was God. He never guided the Apostles and their Disciples to truth. He left some hidden puzzle for future New Agers to uncover!
To me, that belongs in a Dan Brown novel...not reality in Jesus Christ and who He is.
Or you can believe that the Jesus story is another take on a previous more ancient story of symbolism.
Or you can believe that the Jesus story is like many other cultures and their "redeemed-redeemer".
Or you can be Catholic, and think you are right and everyone else is wrong.
Who really is the one being dishonest about their arrogance?
