    Mark Twain on the Bible:

    It is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies

    Muslims feel the same way about Mohammed as good Christians feel about Jesus. But this has not stopped Muslims in Paris and Nice, in France, from chopping the heads off Christians in the street and in a church, over the last few days. Of course Christians no longer cut off heads, but Christians sincerely worship Jesus, and whatever we worship we become. So what are we worshipping when we worship Jesus?

    Almost everything we know about Jesus is found in the New Testament, where we find -

    Jesus was part of a Judaic community based on marriage, yet he never married.
    He never made love with a woman.
    He never had children of his own.
    He did though love John, his disciple.
    And he loved other people's children.

    Neither Roman law or Judaic law proscribed child sexual abuse, and the long term psychological damage done to children was unknown. And naturally there were no criminal prosecutions.

    "The Imitation of Christ", by Thomas a Kempis, is a Christian staple, click The Imitation of Christ - Wikipedia.

    It's not the absolute Word of God.
    Though for all we know, it could be such.
