It never ceases to amaze me the depths of Christoan ignorance about the history of their own religion, and their willingness to cling to a modern document that has been proved to have been mistranslated, manipulated for political purposes, twisted by influences from other religions, and simply mangled through hundreds of years of sloppy oral tradition. The Gospels are not the teaching of Jesus. Get clear on that. They were written Long after his death, possibly centuries after, horribly misunderstood, distorted and contradicted the teaching of Jesus, and are of questionable authenticity. A willingness to cling to secondary sources instead of focusing on the core instruction of the teacher indicates students who do not wish to learn the lesson because the lesson teaches things they do not wish to learn.
