As you all know, The Bible was written by men - giving their opinions on many levels of morality - of who Jesus was, What Jesus said, etc. The writings and interpretations of The Bible are being reviewed. Changing such words as Men to People. Changing Such terms as the divinity of Mary and — by extension — the birth of Jesus - The concept of the Immaculate Conception - doesn't really work - and "The Virgin Mary" .... well, they are now considering "The Young Maiden, Mary".

Let's face it - The Bible, is and always was, written by Men to control their women, children and weaker men - keep them in line (like sheep) - CONTROL!
So now, we see they (newer men seeking to clear up inequities) are rewriting The Bible - to keep relevance to who we are today and to keep control of their flock.
I have had several chance meetings with God - my horse Sonny, was my witness - God was an energy, a presence - not a Jesus nor any other representation of Human Character. Beware of who you listen to - as they might have other reasons (more personal to them) in trying to sway you!
No Disrespect - Easter, Good Friday, Christmas - have only value to those who are caught up in being under the control of others.
In Finality, They Say 'It's not rewriting. It's retranslating.'
Bullshit comes in many forms -
Why aren't as many as 5,000 priests from the Catholic Church in Jail - sodomy charges against, and payoffs from the Church.....?
Are these the only incidents that can be pointed at?
