The Bible versus other earliest books is the main problem which is faced by many considerate authors and so is also faced by Borg and Wright. It is generally observed that most of the biblical stories are believed as right but in actual they are unsuspecting. If we discuss Borg’s point of view he has accepted a lot of disapproval in Bible. For the original Testament the Borg execute serious investigation on the past book in order to apply on the original Testament. In a book Borg wrote a whole chapter on the virgin Birth in order to give an example on the critical analysis and the facts show that he does not thinks that gospel accounts are traditionally
I was aware than many of the Greek philosophers before Christ had turned from poly-theism to some sort of “impersonal” force or God, yet this was more far reaching across ancient society than I suspected. Traditional religion was not revived in the time of Julian, although he attempted to present such a view. The one phrase in the book that clarified and haunts me was this one: The gods were no longer needed (242).

A man from ancient civilization often used to believe in the authority of pope without questioning him for the proofs.
It can be debated however that many Christian morals are based themselves on common sense, as in to not kill anybody or steal. As many people in the nation were Christians at the time, mostly everything that was written down as pertains to the government had to do with religion in some way or another. This seems to be where the whole concept of a Separation started off on the wrong foot. In this examination of the “Separation of Church and Sate” and its success and flaws I will look at the History of the 1st Amendment right, not to mention some of the controversy surrounding the issue, and what could be done in order to restore balance so that people of all walks of life can be happy again. "Thomas Jefferson once called America’s new constitutional protections of religious freedom a “bold” and “novel experiment.” (p. 1 Witte, Religious Lib...) The separation of church and state has been present in the constitution ever since it was written.
