Have you looked out a window?
The world is ( to borrow a phrase that might seem familiar to some people out there) cool.

I think both are far more merciful than the Bible or other books of ancient and modern scripture would have us believe.
That's what Sufis say about the Sunni/Shiite rift, as it happens. That's why there are non-denominational churches, too...and yet scripture enforces tribalistic divisions nonetheless.I amy not be good at the history aspects of the Bible, as stated earlier, but I did learn a few things in my studies as a Mormon in the 1990s. When all else fails us in worldy religions, true spirituality can bring us closerto the being we call God. And we can know peace through his Son's sacrifice if we accept it as such.
Yes, Clara, the councils of those centuries is indeed what I was referring to. They are the uninspired scholars who took the many, many books and epistles of the Church and changed them or left them out entirely of what they called a canonised Bible. A shame as there is something to be had for reading both Testaments if one has an inquiring mind.
