For this...and this alone....all of Christianity owes a debt of gratitude to the Catholic church...whatever anyone may say about its flaws or misdeeds since, flip side, for this alone all who dispise what Christianity has done (crusades, colonialism, forced conversions, the zealots, martyrs, missioniries) the Church must take the blame for what it has wrought.While this may (or may not) be true, those fragments would have been historical curiosities, not much different than the Dead Sea Scrolls or Nag Hamadi. I don't think Christianity would have survived as a religion, therefor the sheer quantity would have been drastically reduced...ergo, more subject to disappearing into the mists of time.
Why doesn't Mithraism still exist today? Christianity would have been another footnote in the history books, if a note at all.
History will judge the actual cost benefit analysis...if it isn't covered up by the winners...lol
