    Once upon a time there was Gnosis - direct experience, at one ment, with God.  This is reflected in the mantra that is recited daily in synagogue: "Hear, oh one who fought with God, the Lord our God, the Lord is ONE".  The idea being that there is not merely a singular god, but that we are a part of this God. Then smaller minds came along and devotions became supplication to an external God.  Then along came Jesus, and then, after him, the Gnostic followers, but they lost out, and one had to go through Jesus to get to this external God.  Then Constantine made Christianity the state religion. In his "universal church" one had to go through a priest to get to Jesus to get to the external God.
