More than just news
The text, written on animal hide, is thought to be an authentic version of the Gospel of Barnabas, one of Jesus's disciples
'Laughable' Iranian report claims the book states that Jesus was never crucified and He predicted the coming of the Prophet Muhammad
It was discovered by Turkish authorities in 2000 during an anti-smuggling operation
The Vatican has made an official request to view the text
A leather-bound religious text, thought to date from the fifth century but discovered only 12 years ago, will cause the collapse of Christianity worldwide, claims Iran.
The book, written on animal hide, apparently states that Jesus was never crucified and that he himself predicted the coming of the Prophet Muhammad, according to the the Iranian press.
Written in Syriac, a dialect of Aramaic, the gospel even predicts the coming of the last Islamic messiah, the report adds.
So all I have to do is write down on pieces of a leather book how all religion is just a simulacrum bury it in the sand to be discovered later and then that means all religion will crumble?
Why in the hell didn't I think of this before?
Ya have to write it in Aramaic Brad...
In my opinion - any religion whatsoever - that requires soliders and armies and believes they need to fight for their faith - and that turns one human against another - is not a religion based in peace and is not something to be follow or put faith into.
The best suggestion or advice I have heard recently is ....... Everyone - stop searching outside of yourselves, stop looking to others, for peace and love. Turn inwards and live in your heart.
Amen to that PenG.
I agree with you Pen G.
"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace." Corinthians 14:33
The commandments are the way for man to live peaceably but in order to follow them sometimes it requires one to give up what they want so all can live in peace. Many are not willing to do that. It is called greed.
Does this mean that we won't be going 2 heaven, walking on streets of gold, with wings, a harp, etc?
Amen to that R.T. !!
GIVE ME A BREAK ISLAM DID NOT EVEN EXIST UNTIL AROUND 700 AD SO BARNABES WAS 600 YEARS OLD AND IN HIS GRAVE WHEN HE WROTE IT. YA RIGHT!!!
