Once a person tires of beating their head against the same four walls of Mark, Mathew, Luke, and John(and trying to keep their lies straight!) and then begin reading things outside the 'box' of Literalist texts they will understand just how narrow minded they've been trained into being. When four gospels contradict one another so many times and in so many ways you have to wonder- what in the world are we doing still swearing by that book? Irenaeus did us no favors in being so deceitfully selective.
Why put shackles on our hearts? Why do we have to be so literal? Why can't we let our aiúa wander in prayer to soak up the love and teaching the Good God has to give? It's not for sale. There is no bargaining necessary and no need to enslave yourself to some sort of dogma.
Here's one of the most heated exchanges found in the Gospel of Judas(PDF)
Jesus said to them, “Why are you troubled? Truly I say to you, all the priests who stand before that altar invoke my name. Again I say to you, my name has been written on this […] of the generations of the stars through the human generations. [And they] have planted trees without fruit, in my name, in a shameful manner.” Jesus said to them, “Those you have seen receiving the offerings at the altar—that is who you are. That is the god you serve, and you are those twelve men you have seen. The cattle you have seen brought for sacrifice are the many people you lead astray  before that altar. […] will stand and make use of my name in this way, and generations of the pious will remain loyal to him. After hi another man will stand there from [the fornicators], and another [will] stand there from the slayers of children, and another from those who sleep with men, and those who abstain, and the rest of the people of pollution and lawlessness and error, and those who say, ‘We are like angels’; they are the stars that bring everything to its conclusion. For to the human generations it has been said, ‘Look, God has received your sacrifice from the hands of a priest’—that is, a minister of error. But it is the Lord, the Lord of the universe, who commands, ‘On the last day they will be put to shame.’”
