Compiled (and adapted multiple times) by the Catholic Church, then the Protestants, then by... then by... then by..... Edited, rewritten and translated and retranslated for centuries. Humans playing telephone with the bible through the ages, with other humans sitting at the operators position, adapting to their whim, for their benefit. At last count, over 30,000 distinct versions of 'christianity'. It's rather embarrassing you cling to this comic book series as a source of anything aside from commentary and exemplification of the effects of social indoctrination, conditioning and control. All right, but as a point of reference given the fact that it speaks to being taught things that make God comprehensible. For example, in the way Jesus lived his religious life and the things that he taught, which were often, if not almost always something to do with a relationship between a parent and child or something along those lines. Isn't there significance there about what was recorded in that regard? Or just because there were things that happened with the Bible. It's many translations. The many times it was altered that somehow it takes away from the heart of what is behind the teachings of Jesus and the example of how he lived his life for us to follow. At least if there is a compulsion or interest in knowing God for who and what he really is, doesn't that all mean something? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
