@Lash,
Hello. I'm a Born-Again Christian, and I'm not ashamed of the Gopsel. I'd like to know how many others here are Born-Again Christians. Please introduce yourselves. Thank you. - FIXED

Four.

We're only four.

Re why this space is so big - I just watched it happen. Nothing to do with my post.


But since the space is so big - here's a bit on Jules Feiffer -

I used to be a Christian until I started studying theology as preparation for seminary studies (in the Episcopal Church). One night after a class called The History of the Bible, it dawned on me that it was a little bit of real history mixed with a whole bunch of myth, parables and often-corrupted stories designed to justify the clergy's political power over their people.

No offense intended, by the way. I'm not interested in bashing Christians or anybody else. That's just my story in brief. I'm also not trying to talk you out of believing. Just hope it sheds a little light on one of the rationales behind disbelief.

@ossobuco,
Wasn't that some kid's book or some underground short story originally? That seems very familiar.

I was going to call myself a Died-Again Christian, since I was Born-Again and now am not.

I am not sure if I like this term or not.

If you're really interested in finding out how many Christians are here,
you can count me as a Christian. I don't consider myself "Born-Again" as
that term is commonly used.

I sometimes consider myself a Christian. It depends on how much I feel like splitting hairs. I reject Pauline Christianity but find the teachings of Jesus compelling, particularly as manifest in the Gospel of Thomas, purportedly written by Didymus Thomas (both of which mean "twin" in Greek and Aramaic, respectively. The Gospel of Thomas calls us to be Jesus' twin without the Pauline baggage of the redemptive Christ.

I'm somewhat of an amateur Futurist; no place for antiquated superstitions such as Christianity.

i know it feels good in Church and the doughnuts, and you do really feel better. But Jesus is either a man who got real clever or a man who was created in fiction. so many books left out. so many translations. But I do believe in God. With or without a bilbe I do whole heartedly. Not to make things easier but i know all these things live in my body alone seperate from me with their own duties all for me but is it really? or is all this for the one. are we all not cells and blood of a living God who just is. he cannot die because he is Death, but in a good way. so dang, all i had to say was no.

@JPB,
I'm not judging or comdemning you. Did you accept Christ as Lord and Saviour? Are you living a Godly lifestyle? Are you keeping God's covenant? Are you being obedient to God and His Word?

This is what makes one a Christian.

@JGoldman10,
What does it mean to be obedient to God and his word?

If I wanted to be God like it would seem to me be a sin. If I am Christlike it is ok. But you seem to have them as both. I know smoke and mirrors was used to make a jet airplane disappear but I assure you I am still dumbfounded.
Now, horus was a man who did some miracles and on the 25 of december did alot of the same stuff. I mean every year the stars line up the same way. The sun rises after being dead for three days so to speak. Your telling me a man said I am the son of God and I will die for everyone's sins. Too me that in itself is blasphemous. Proving God's existense will never happen if He is God. Im cool with that, but if you can't find me no proof of a man who lived on this earth by now then something is up.
If I took every religion and put in into a blender God would comeout 100 percent. But Jesus just gets blended in somewhere. I remember as kid seeing a white Jesus all long haired. Then I had some black friends and in their house was a black Jesus. At some point im like, He would have to be noe of the above. Then im thinking he would in fact be all the above. But more importantly, he is a man created just like all other stories over time. someone finaly writes a story that sticks.
Question, if there was a man who could fly around and zap people and walk through walls or on water, and heal the sick and then said I am the son of God would you beleive him or think he was the antichrist. You will not see that happen. And it did not happen then. God rest my silly soul. When I wake up in the morning I honestly give a nod to the sun. I see it and feel it and know it is ahead of me. without it i could not even be here much less see myself in a reflection. If light slows down time then one could say it is not of this world. I do blieve in God, but again, i did at one time except him as my personal saviour, and being babtist i suppose i got lucky, cause i will always be saved, lol. but now i know what man can do to fool the foolish. takes one to know one. thank you for your post.

Follow God's Word and obey it-obey God when He speaks to you.
