When a US President shreds papers, why is he doing it? They say something that would incriminate him or prove he lied. When Constantine burned every gospel except a small set, presumably he did it for the same reason. The gnostic gospels showed that people had been worshipping a celestial Jesus for 300 years before the alleged historical Jesus had even been born. That pokes quite a hole in the historical Jesus myth.
