James was Jesus's brother, see- his older brother (whoops)- and after Jesus died he took over leadership of the Jerusalem church. It was a nice little family run business- the spiritual equivalent of a corner shop.
Then along came Paul with his ambitions and visions and his amazing Jacobean prose style...
So I read the Epistle of James. What it says is, be excellent to one another, dudes- and watch out because the rich are going to hell.
Yeah, right. I'm not going to take issue with any of that but Paul is a lot more interesting.
Would Christianity have developed into a global franchise if it had all been all down to James? I think not.
Then dredlock guy did something extraordinary. OK, he said (facing into the lens so we could taste his sincerity)) I've proved that Pauline Christianity is a massive fraud and Jesus wasn't the Son of God- just an ordinary chap who believed in being nice to people- but actually I still believe he was the Son of God and rose from the dead and all that because the Church tells me to.
