if you want to know what God has to say, pick up the Bible (available everywhere--including dollar stores) and READ IT FOR YOURSELF
then, you won't be conned by this role players who distort the message
The bible has been distorted.
Eighty-two percent of the words ascribed to Jesus in the gospels were not actually spoken by him."
The authors of the four canonical Gospels are not Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, as traditionally believed.
None of these four Gospels were written before the fall of Jerusalem in A.D. 70.
The oral tradition of Jesus' sayings was quite fluid. Simple teachings were often greatly expanded, embellished, and distorted in the process.
Various people in the early church, including the Gospel writers themselves, felt free to invent sayings of Jesus that had little or no basis in what He actually taught.
If a saying can be demonstrated to promote later Christian causes, it could not have originated with Jesus.
The historicity of John’s gospel is extremely suspect.
Historical analysis cannot admit the supernatural as an explanation for an event. Therefore, Jesus' words after His resurrection—like His earlier predictions about His death, resurrection, and return—cannot be authentic.
Jesus never explained His parables and aphorisms. All concluding words of explanation, especially allegorical interpretations of parables and metaphors, are thus inauthentic.
Jesus never directly declared who He was. All such “self-referential” material (in which Jesus says, “I am…” or, “I have come to…”) is therefore also inauthentic.
The burden of proof rests on any particular scholar who would claim authenticity for a particular saying of Jesus and not on the skeptic.
The real Jesus taught of love and forgiveness.
