A painful truth.

  1. Reason #204 why I am not, and never will be a Christian.

    I have read and also highly recommend Dr. Bart Ehrmans book:
    “Forged: Writing in the Name of God–Why the Bible’s Authors Are Not Who We Think They Are”

    Bart D. Ehrman, the New York Times bestselling author of Jesus, Interrupted and God’s Problem reveals which books in the Bible’s New Testament were not passed down by Jesus’s disciples, but were instead forged by other hands—and why this centuries-hidden scandal is far more significant than many scholars are willing to admit. A controversial work of historical reporting in the tradition of Elaine Pagels, Marcus Borg, and John Dominic Crossan, Ehrman’s Forged delivers a stunning explication of one of the most substantial—yet least discussed—problems confronting the world of biblical scholarship.

    • If this scandalous truth was actually taught in Churches, there would be a mass exodus away from Christianity.

      Thus it remains preachers, pastors, and ministers continue to hide this and other compromising facts from the layman in the pue. Such Christian faith leaders either engage in actively lying to their flock, while standing in what they consider to be the very house of God, or they engage in spinning and deflection in order to intentionally deceive others, in order to “protect” them from the fullness of the truth about the origins of their own religion.

      Quite scandalous!!
