I’m still unsure how you separate Christianity and authoritarianism. I don’t think Christianity would have progressed beyond other mystery cults — if later church fathers had not advocated for giving Caesar his taxes. I’m not a historian. Imo, Christianity and Authoritarianism is the perfect peanut butter cup

Considering that so much of the New Testament was (arguably) written a 100+ years after the (arguably) human known as Jesus…frankly…it’s hard to know…what is what. Yep, that does feel like a run-on sentence.

On a positive note, I don’t think the concept of humanism could have occurred without Christianity. Certainly, it created some friction with Roman Catholics.

Thanks for having a discussion with me.
