You missed (in #228)the most important EX NIHILO event to modern christians.. wonder why..

AKA... the creation of the New Testament by the Roman Catholic Church.. much as the Jews created the Talmud..
and to some extent the Quran for muslims..

Most of the Christians and Jews(and muslims) worship their God-Lore much like idols.. but some worship holy places..
Relegating “God”, to most, a literary and honorary presence..

When Jesus came to and did make quite literally all religion (on this planet)-

1) Obsolete..
2) went on vacation... (otherwise how could he “come back”)
3) delegated all authority (on this planet) to the Holy Spirit..

A good creative (and management) enterprise overlooked by most.. in my search..
raising “having an invisible friend” to an ex nihilo event..
not just for young people but for adults as well..

Somehow, I missed out on the ex nihilo aspects of the canonization of Scripture -- which consisted of collection of already existing writings and selection of those deemed to be divinely inspired.

Could you please explain how that process was "ex nihilo" (something where nothing had existed before)?
