The human memory is a troublesome thing. Even in this age of readily available information, great quotes can be wrongly attributed to people who do great things in a short period of time.
Case in point, author John Green – who even believed himself that he wrote a quote that he actually didn’t:
It stands to reason that mythology could have easily been intertwined with the story of the real Jesus in a time when fact-checking was not easily done, as it happens now when it is easily done.
Be cautious about trusting the Bible completely. Test everything, hold on to what is good.
