    ...don't really consider the teachings all that important.  The queasy, almost pagan belief that his blood covers their sins from God is sufficient.

    And I couldn't make that up if I tried.

    What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.

      That a lot of Christianity has pagan overtones. The early Church was pretty canny about bringing in beliefs and traditions that the pagan peoples would identify with as incentive to convert. That is why, for instance, we hide eggs at Easter and hang holly and ivy at Christmas, and why many saints are re-imaged gods and goddesses.
