Adoptionists (Ryan, Emily, Simron, Sequioa)

Both adoptionist and proto-orthodox modified text to bring them into accordance to their belief systems. The Ebionites were the Jewish-Christian adoptionist who believed that Jesus did not preexist and did not have a virgin birth. They also reject the first two books and follow ancient Jewish traditions and laws. Paganism is more concerned with practice than belief, which is why it runs up against the exclusive beliefs of Jews and Christians.
