I will save you the time,

I have done hours and hours of my own research (from trusted sources, not online sites) and am convinced of the authenticty and dating of the original gospels. I am also aware of the so called "older" writings, which were only discovered in a dumpster less than 100 years ago. I have read numerous topics on this and am convinced beyond a doubt that the scriptures that are included in the NT as it has existed for almost 2000 years include writings which were verifiably written less then 100 years subsequent to Christ's death and many much earlier than that. This was long before the Catholic Church as we know it came into existence. Please stop trying to discredit all of Christianty based on the shortcomings and falsehoods of the Catholic Church.
