    It is an ancient sect

    that belongs to Jewish separatists who dislike the Roman Imperial Cult. It also has no relevance in the modern world.

    Christianity Scared the Be’jesus Out of Me!

    I admit that I have to reject the popular

    When you really break it down,

    there are "gods" or "Gods" in Christianity. In the beginning God said let "US" make man in "OUR" likeness. So there it is really nothing else to say... However Christians believe that Jesus is God beside his pops, aka "the father". So here is another example of the teaching of...
