First: There was a question posed by one of our friends on this string and an answer (based on an understanding) as close as possible for the question was posted.

Second: Science and God is the correct string for this communication as all this will eventually build a foundation upon which one can form the basis of the argument of/for science in order to prove the validity of ones arguments presented.

According to a continuous and an unparalleled constancy in the true scriptures of God Man has no need for sacrifice but that God prefers - Mercy - and - Generosity - over sacrifice. Dose God need Money or Blood?

There is a definite misconception in the Christianity which was propagated by Paul (who was a polytheist before he embraced Jesse's teachings). Thus Paul interpreted his understanding of what Jesus was stating in accordance to his propagation to groups of polytheists who worshiped thousands of gods. Paul did succeed to reduce the number of gods worshiped from the thousands down to three. We must give him credit for that! (may God have mercy on him too). The gospels according to Mathew Mark and Luke and John: None of them are attested. i.e. they do not bear their signatures on the original manuscripts. Look under the authorship of the above Gospels and you will see that it will state in any bible, that states the authorship, that the authors are anonymous; therefor we have at best a hear-say of what transpired.

On the other hand the gospel of Barnabas which was found on Barnabas's own skeleton in a cave is fully attested and bears his signature and is today followed by over one billion Muslims throughout the world.

Do please take a look at the authority of Paul at:

The Gospel of Barnabas was accepted as a Canonical Gospel in the Churches of Alexandria till 325 C.E. Iranaeus (130-200) wrote in support of pure monotheism and opposed Paul for injecting into Christianity doctrines of the pagan Roman religion and Platonic philosophy. He had quoted extensively from the Gospel of Barnabas in support of his views. This shows that the Gospel of Barnabas was in circulation in the first and second centuries of Christianity.

In 325 C.E., the Nicene Council was held, where it was ordered that all original Gospels in
Hebrew script should be destroyed. An Edict was issued that any one in possession of these
Gospels will be put to death.

In 383 C.E., the Pope secured a copy of the Gospel of Barnabas and kept it in his private

In the fourth year of Emperor Zeno (478 C.E. ), the remains of Barnabas were discovered and
there was found on his breast a copy of the Gospel of Barnabas written by his own hand. (Acia
Sanctorum Boland Junii Tom II, Pages 422 and 450. Antwerp 1698) . The famous Vulgate Bible
appears to be based on this Gospel.

Pope Sixtus (1585-90) had a friend, Fra Marino. He found the Gospel of Barnabas in the private library of the Pope. Fra Marino was interested because he had read the writings of Iranaeus where Barnabas had been profusely quoted. The Italian manuscript passed through different hands till it reached "a person of great name and authority" in Amsterdam, "who during his life time was often heard to put a high value to this piece". After his death it came in the possession of J. E. Cramer, a Councillor of the King of Prussia. In 1713 Cramer presented this manuscript to the famous connoisseur of books, Prince Eugene of Savoy. In 1738 along with the library of the Prince it found its way into Hofbibliothek in Vienna. There it now rests.

Toland, in his "Miscellaneous Works" (published posthumously in 1747), in Vol. I, page 380,
mentions that the Gospel of Barnabas was still extant. In Chapter XV he refers to the Glasian
Decree of 496 C.E. where "Evangelium Barnabe" is included in the list of forbidden books.
Prior to that it had been forbidden by Pope Innocent in 465 C.E. and by the Decree of the
Western Churches in 382 C.E.

Barnabas is also mentioned in the Stichometry of Nicephorus Serial No. 3, Epistle of Barnabas . . . Lines 1, 300. Then again in the list of Sixty Books Serial No. 17. Travels and teaching of the Apostles. Serial No. 18. Epistle of Barnabas.
Serial No. 24. Gospel According to Barnabas.
A Greek version of the Gospel of Barnabas is also found in a solitary fragment. The rest is burnt.

The Latin text was translated into English by Mr. and Mrs. Ragg and was printed at the
Clarendon Press in Oxford. It was published by the Oxford University Press in 1907. This English translation mysteriously disappeared from the market. Two copies of this translation are known to exist, one in the British Museum and the other in the Library of the Congress, Washington, DC. The first edition was from a micro-film copy of the book in the Library of the Congress, Washington, DC.
