Have we really come very far in 2,000 years? Looks to me like nothing has changed. The pieces on the chess board have moved slightly, ever so, but basically they are still the same. And the same story line is in play.
Let’s put it all into some perspective. 2,000 years ago we had a dogmatic and corrupt priesthood with a High Temple Priest in the form of Caiaphas. We had a ruling class, a monarchy, the Herodian Kings who killed their own wives and children, were sexually promiscuous, married their own sisters and murdered anyone who was opposed to them. And we had the Legion. The Roman military industrial complex of the time.
What do we have today? We have a dogmatic priesthood with a Papacy that has, over the last 1,000 years, burned millions at the stake, those who refused to bow to their authority. An Inquisition that is still in place and has not been de-constructed. A priesthood finally exposed for child sex abuse that has been endemic for centuries, and Pope Benedict sits in luxury retirement.
