Remember the old saying- History is written by the victor. I suggest you study early Christianity and you can see the WHOLE story, not just Paul's bullshit gentile recruiting scam.
Um, I study Christianity and its history basically every day and plan on being a Philosopher/Theologian for a career. I would LOVE to see your sources which you have yet to provide.
