As it was

Learning and sin were synonymous with the early Christians

It is evident that with the exception of Paul and Clement of Alexandria.

Both of whom were initiated into the mysteries.

None of the fathers knew much of the truth themselves.

They were mostly uneducated.

Ignorant people.

And if such as Augustine and Lactantius, or again the venerable Bede and others were so painfully ignorant until the time of Galileo.

Of the most vital truths taught in the Pagan temples -

Of the rotundity of the earth, for example.

Leaving the heliocentric system out of the question

How great must have been the ignorance of the rest!

And from these men came endless manipulation.

Manipulation designed to increase their power.

Pouring hate on those with other beliefs.

The greatest crime that was ever perpetrated on mankind was committed on that day when the first priest invented that first prayer with a selfish object in view.

And those of any religion who continue to do so to this day.

A God who is asked to send defeat and death to thousands of his enemies.

To bless the arms of the worshiper.

It is this idea of God that has fostered selfishness in man.

Depriving him of his self reliance.

Telling him sotires of orignal sin
