If you have never thought of religion being the most political power in history, then fortunately, you have never been that close to it. Religion above any other pursuit of humanity, is about politics, and politics is all about power. The New Testament is merciless in revealing how well this works, right there in the book of Galatians. To this day, religion wants us to think that there was no conflict between the Apostles, but all one has to do to see the lie in that, is to read in context, research in concert with historical evidence, and remember that while the victors ALWAYS write the history, it is fairly certain that they didn’t count on us joining the dots for ourselves.
