WHY DOES EVERY CONTROVERSIAL CHURCH DOCUMENT GET SIDELINED, NOMINATED FOR DELETION, OR OTHERWISE MARGINALIZED OUT OF THE PUBLIC VIEW? ARE ALL EARTHLING BIPEDAL HOMONIDS BLIND?
Because they (the Priests/Pastors/Rabbi's/etc of the Church are the same 'blind guides' reffered to by Jesus in the Gospels. Religions were invented by Satan and that is why it happens. The Church is and has always been a booming business. Jesus told us, in Matthew Chapter 6, how we should pray: In private, behind a closed door, to The Father (NOT to Jesus - read it for yourself) He also told us whom we should not be like.. the hypocrites, who love to pray standing in the churches (synagoge and church have the same meaning) to be seen by others. THAT is why, in my humble opinion, any document/discovered manuscript that teaches contrary to the view of the Church establishment gets blackholed and marginalized. It is because they (the priests/pastors, etc.) whom are still trying to be levites, even though Christ has FOREVER ABOLISHED the priesthood (he is now our High Priest and we need no man to teach us), they are AFFRAID to be exposed because the existance of the Church, as we know it, is not justified by the teachings of Jesus.
So, in effect you're saying that every document which has been indicated by textual analysis as having been written several centuries after Christ, and is basically acknowledged as not being what it claims to be, is having it's non-exsistent credibility impugned by the "dishonest" people who have dedicated their lives to the study of that work and probably know it better than virtually anyone else.
