    in a nutshell - the elite class of Manichaeans allegedly engaged in an odd ritual in which they poured flour on a table, had sex on it, and then made bread from the “seeded” flour.

    :eek::LOL::LOL::LOL::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: I stand corrected! I don't think that even sesame seeds would improve the appeal of that bread!

    I do not know any main religion that thinks Hell or Heaven are places. What they are has been debated for centuries.

    The persecution in Australia is the media saying the head of the church here is guilty of having sex with children. He has not been found guilty but ex priests and others saying he is guilty. The community thinks this is persecution.
    Jesus was God, He choose to suffer . He did not have to do it. We do not ride to heaven on his sacrifice, we must do something ourselves carry our cross.

    and the outcome of those debates? If God is all good they why create a hell?

    Again, why? If he was God and God created all ex niliho why create suffering?

    Why? if there was no suffering then why would God require a cross to be bourne?

    You seem to ignore that Christians and Muslims definitely have heavens and hells.

    You will find all that information by using google to inform yourself.

    That is the moral thing to do, but that is not what most of Christianity believes. The, by faith alone, number of theists is quite large.

    The apostles creed does not mention doing anything other than believing in and accepting as true all kinds of supernatural garbage.
