I took a quick look at this page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Magdalene

"....She is considered by the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Anglican churches to be a saint,...."

To be sure, in case it's a work of "vandalism”, I pulled out some 2002 edition of this page and found a similar description.

So, Catholic wasn't (or isn't, rather) trying to defame her (well, if she really IS Jesus's wife, then that's another story), which in turn means Dan wasn't telling the whole truth. However, when some news programs were reporting the scroll of Judas's gospel last year, I did hear some reporter say people were killed because of it.

I guess we'll just sit tight and see how the whole thing unfolds itself.

It would be very interesting to know the Church’s attitude toward the Gospel of Judas. If my above theory is correct, I see a paradox in it. On the one hand, the Church sure wouldn’t want a never-mentioned-before Gospel to be unearthed if it records something conflicts the New Testament of the Bible, on the other hand, they may welcome it if it is endangering The Da Vinci Code’s reliability.

I am not baptized; I am not even a christian or a catholic, but I believe in God. Funny! God had answered my pray in a way I was awed by his all-mighty power. No matter what kind of situation it may turn out to be, I know God is watching it.

Ah... Interesting. In a way, you are a "self-anointed(:p)" Christian because you believe in God. (If it's THE God I think it is :) ) My father isn't baptized but he is more "Christianed[sic]” than his church members. He even went to hospital because of it. And yes, he prayed to God, and he asked his church minister to pray for him when he visited my dad at the hospital.

Anyway, back to the topic. I didn't watch the program, so I took some time and read through wikipedia's page, Gospel of Judas. Interestingly, even though the Pope still condemns Judas, Roman Catholic church views this gospel as any other gnostic ones -- “Hey! You can buy it, or them, in any of our bookstores!”. Apparently, they very well progress into 21 century and are not trying to hide things. (Well, at least this one.)...(Or, it's been dug out and they have to find some excuses to cover it up.. hmmmm... more conspiracy theories :) )

BTW, I especially like this one (from the same page):
引文: The Gospel of Judas describes Judas as being the favourite disciple of Jesus, just as the Gospel of Mary describes Mary as the favourite disciple, the Gospel of Thomas describes Thomas as the favourite disciple.

I guess they didn't talk to each other, huh? :p

Off the topic:

And you know why I am not a Christian yet, despite how much I trust God? Because there is one thing I still can't take it - and it is a huge thing for the Christians - I don't believe that God created this world in seven days. I believe in Darwin’s “theory”. Were I a devoted Christian, my first reaction when saw that program would had been, “that’s bull sxxt!”

Hm... that brings a good question. If one is not devoted, could one still be a Christian? I guess a born-to-be Christian doesn't(or didn't) have a choice, and I ran into quite a few of these people -- "I'm a Christian, but I don't go to church anymore" or "Yeah. So?"

But for a non-Christian, I guess one has to be very devoted to fully accept this new religion.

The Old Testament was written by ancient Israel people. The description that God created the world within six days conveys an important idea that there exists one God who created the world. How the world was created or if it was formed within six days is not the point. The point is we Christians believe God created the universe. Frankly speaking, I believe Darwin's theory of evolution, but I more believe in God. To me, God creates everything, including the process of natural selection of species. You know religion is very much different from science. If you try to dissect religion by scientific means, it does not mean you are wrong at all, but it simply means it's not yet the time for you to become a religious believer. For us Christians, things are quite simple–that is, we believe in God and the love He shows us.

Ah, Birdman, there's something I forgot to tell you.
It's ok. You won't say, "that's bull xx!" if someday you become a truly religious Christian.

It felt good when you said “we Christians” in your post addressed to me.

“we Christians believe God created the universe.” …. “I believe Darwin's theory of evolution, but I more believe in God. To me, God creates everything, including the process of natural selection of species.”

Amen and amen!


(How does that “引言” thing work?)

man, I am really not a fan to any religions. This subject is way too profound to me...Simply put, it's nice to have a belief no matter what form it is.
