I do not need a book to know G-D

in response to reader comment: Where is it Written that Mankind Thinks as Almighty G-d?

G-D speaks to me in my heart and in my mind. You are NOT the authority that I will admit to, neither is your church. There are far too many inconsistencies in your book for me to rely upon it. I will take the book of Mathew as an example. The supposed dialogue between Jeshua and Pilate as recorded in that chapter is written there and there is no other written record that such a dialogue took place. No contemporary historical authority mentions such a dialogue, not Philo and not Josephus and not any Greek or Roman historian. Surely, if such a dialogue ever took place there would be at least some record of it outside of the new testament. I choose this particular passage because it is this specific chapter which is at the heart of all the troubles that Jews have suffered over the last two millenia. Beginning with Mathew 27:11, to the end of Mathew is the greatest lie and travesty that has ever been perpetrated in the name of G-D. The accounts of the New Testament are fantastic enough without this but this puts the icing on the cake for me and this is exactly why I will continue to reject Christianity and all of its theologies and doctrines. It is for this reason that you have imposed so much unrightful suffering on the Jews throughout the length of our history and for this the Christian must answer before G-D. You cannot look to me for forgiveness. I will accept the Christian only after he makes a real pennance by admitting his sin before G-D and thereby absolving the Jews finally for the blood of Yeshua.
