Interesting thought.

Also remember tht during the life of christ the little backwoods sect didn't
do too well. It was onlyafter that City Slicker...Saul of Taursus...on his
way to persecute some Christians....fell off his donkey....had his donkey
"talk" to him...experienced "revalation"...and began to promote the group he
previously persecuted.........

.....did the little sect really take off. Christ was long gone by then.
