How do you say your a Christian then if your belief doesn’t include thinking the Bible is true?I believe that the Bible is rooted in something real and the truth of where this information originated is oppressed. I find it hard to understand how any Christian could argue that the church is not oppressed considering the presence of denominational conflicts.
However, it would seem like this is more than likely Zoroastrian writings.
From the Zend Avesta
"O Maker of the material world, thou Holy One! Can the eating vessels be made clean that have been touched by the carcase of a dog, or by the corpse of a man?
74 (184). Ahura Mazda answered: 'They can, O holy Zarathustra!'"
This whole section of Zoroastrian writings resembles the conversation that Abraham has before Sodom and Gomorrah is destroyed. Abraham asks how many righteous people would be enough to save the city.
"Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak. What if only thirty can be found there?”
He answered, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.”
31 Abraham said, “Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, what if only twenty can be found there?”
He said, “For the sake of twenty, I will not destroy it.” Genesis 18:30-31
"“The Dinkard, a ninth century Persian work says there were only ever two copies of Zoroaster’s monumental work, one of which was burned and the other was confiscated by the Greeks."

So there is a root that was replaced by something else created by the Greeks.
