Been watching talk by Richard Carrier who was making an argument that Jesus never existed, he made a very compelling argument that Christianity was an attempt to update Juduasim to the values of the classical period, it makes me think Christianity going to have another reformation to update it for the modern worldSeems like a grey area. Logically speaking, we need structure/belief/culture in order to trust, act and collaborate effectively. However we also need openness in order to update our set of beliefs to progress and evolve. It is a tricky balancing act where both dogmatic and progressive proponents clash. Christianity brought structure and collaboration, but it also became too dogmatic (As with any belief system).
This is something I think JBP has been trying to drill into our heads for a long time?
