Or about the sexual experimentation that followed? In either case, the last thing an intelligent allpowerful God ought to want would be for a church to organize itself as an ongoing celebration of His criminality and sorry betrayal of marital vows not to mention the many other gross violations of His own Commandments. But perhaps such concerns were beside the point. For the priests redesigning Christian doctrine faced a formidable problem. They had to come up with an additional emotional draw, and do it soon.

Different individuals have responded in wildly different ways to the Christian emphasis upon personal salvation through absolute selfishness. Some initiated the Spanish Inquisition; others were drawn to the destructive and greedy invasion of the Americas. Yet on the more positive side, we might include the scientific explorations of Magellan, as well as some inner-city religion-supported educational institutions and hospitals. And we ought not forget the sterling social work of individuals such as Mother Theresa - though even her best deeds were inevitably tarnished by Christian righteousness and a presumption of moral superiority.

And this soon led to increasing doctrinal difficulties. Thus the New Testament project became a high priority for the Christ faction of the Jesus sect. Naturally, the New Testament editors developed as many parallels as possible between their tales about a relatively unknown Jesus and the beloved Hebrew Bible stories about Israel’s revered ancient leader, Moses. Hence even though the New Testament was written to establish Christian credibility, it had the unfortunate side-effect of reemphasizing how much Christianity and its New Testament depended upon analogies between Old and New Testament stories, and on idiosyncratic Christian interpretations of Hebrew Bible teachings and prophecies.
