    I'm thinking about republishing the Bible. I have always disliked the way it was laid out, with certain books left out, and the entire rewriting of the Torah into the Old Testament. In the Christian version it appears that the city of Sodom was destroyed for homosexuality rather than for lack of Hospitality.

    There're a lot of things like that.

    Also, we've got to consider the other gospels that were found in 1945, and yet not disseminated into the bible with new publishings.

    I'm thinking:

    The Tanakh
    Torah (teachings)
    Nevi'im (prophets)
    Ketuvim (writings)

    The Talmud
    Mishnah
    Gemara

    Books before Christ
    Prayer of Manasseh
    Book of Esdras
    Book of Tobit
    Book of Sirach

    Gospels
    Peter
    Matthew
    Mark
    Luke
    John
    James
    Philip
    Judas
    Mary
    Mathaias

    Sayings
    Thomas
    Sophia of Jesus Christ

    Early Church
    Liturgy of Saint James
    Bruce Codex
    Ophite Diagrams
    Letters of John
    Letters of Peter
    Letters of James
    Letters of Jude
    The Acts of Pilate
    The Acts of John
    The Acts of Peter
    The Acts of Paul
    The Acts of Andrew
    The Acts of Thomas

    Apocalypse
    Apocalypse of John of Patmos
    Apocalypse of Paul
    Apocalypse of Peter
    Apocalypse of Pseudo-Methodius
    Apocalypse of Thomas
    Apocalypse of Stephen
    First Apocalypse of James
    Second Apocalypse of James
    The Shepherd of Hermas

    Better to have a dozen fragmented religions than one or two well organized ones.

    I would be, too, except that I just ignore the vast majority of them. Some are interesting to study; some can have positive effects; some are immediately problematic; but most don't matter.

    The concept of a fireplace in the bathroom worries me.

    Shai,
    1. first I'd actually have to read that obnoxiously long list (#1,999 on my to-read list) You've done so? Really? Wow.
    and
    2. Re-publishing? Not re-writing? LOL.
    3. You remind me of Mark Twain, he wrote "The Bible According to Mark Twain"

    Oh, and I like the way Slant thinks, this could be a real money-making opportunity, you know.
    (hugs)

    I know it's a money making opportunity. It's the best selling book on earth.

    Also, yes, I've read the holy texts from front to back, along with quite a few commentaries, of the following religions; Christianity, Islam, Buddism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Jainism, Judaism, Satanism, Wicca, and Certain Tribal Religions of the Middle East.

    Yeah, but I love arguing religion. It's how I can kick everyone's arse on any religious topic.
