[B]I'm sure there has been a thread on this before, but I just got done reading this book and was wondering what everyone else thought about it.
|They claim that all the religious things in the book were researched and supposed to be accurate|
|it seems like Christianity isn't about Jesus anymore, (hasn't been for, what? 1,700 years?) it's just about the "power of the church" and male domination.|
|The Gospels of Thomas are beautiful, what I've read of them anyway, and they are supposedly the words that Jesus actually spoke (anyone correct me if I'm wrong please)|

I go to church, and I do submit to my husband (go ahead and gasp! ) but those are voluntary things born out of my love for God and the conviction His Spirit put on my heart. Christianity and the Bible is about God's love for us. Every command and principle there is based on that love. That's my opinion, anyway.
