wil said:Just because my view of the scope of what a follower of Jesus could be differs from yours, does not make mine a personal attack....Now of course if I were in the Catholic Forum or the Baptist Forum...I would have to agree... And while I feel that this discussion as the other that inhumility started could rightly be in the christian forum, it really doesn't matter. You've booted them both out....to belief and spirituality...where now my beliefs be they christian or pagan or scientific are now within the realm.
I am saying that the 2.1 billion people who make up christianity won't agree on many tenents, rituals, beliefs of their denomination v. mine or yours...the path is much wider...that is what I said...truth is their are many chrisitans in those 2.1 billion that don't believe in the virgin birth, original sin, trinity, diety of Jesus, resurection....but they count themselves as christian because they believe the value of what Jesus spoke....whether any of these are true or not...
first of all I aint concerned about numbers & stats like that.
please explain to me how Jesus not being put to death has anything to do with Christianity?
you must be talking about another religion if Jesus did not die, get buried & rise from the dead.
does that mean i get to go into all the other religions here at CR & tell them to believe something different?
i think not!
first you say they count themselves as Christians because of what Jesus spoke is valuable, but then you say whether it is true or not...WHAT? does not matter?
so does it matter what people say if it is true or not? or we can just say whatever we want even if it is not true?
so what do you believe Wil? i am confused.
