Maybe because i am a "non-believer" it doesn't matter if Jesus was the Son of God or not.But the way i look at the evidence it suggests he was just a man.If he was a messiah,either an anointed King,Priest or Prophet,most likely a prophet,suggests something.I mentioned it in another thread.If Jesus was a prophet then he was unique,because as far as i know,no other "respected" prophet ever claimed to be the "only begotten son of god."Monarchs were usually the ones to claim divinity.
So,if Jesus was "acting" human for a very short span of time(when you think how long Adam,Moses,Abraham & others lived),to me,it does not take away the power of his message.Jesus wanted people to live as one,yet the Church corrupted that message.And now,in the modern world,people believe in the churches' idea of Jesus,not Jesus himself!!
I seek truth and i seek knowledge.I was raised to not take anything at face value or in blind faith,so its kinda built in that i will always question.But i think thats one thing that keeps mankind going.We may find the "truth" but we will never know all.For if we know everything we have no need for questions,and the mind goes to waste!
I love to study peoples faiths,and what i have found that the oldest "god" is female,worshiped as Mother Earth/the Mother of All.you have to admit,when you think of life,birth,nurturing etc you think of a female.But is this belief right? No!
I think the God that exists within the religions who see only one heavenly being comes from men who see themselves as worthier/stronger than women.They create a God in their image,they make their feelings,ideas and prejudices dominant and call it "scripture." Is this belief right? No!
I believe in duality.I believe in a God(s) that are both male and female,yin and yang.Both are equal,and one cannot exist without the other.In Christianty the creation of Eve from Adam has made women seem "lower" than men,less worthy.But as this quote from the Hindu myth of creation shows;women are created equal....
I have more of affinity with Hinduism and Buddhism then Christianity.And i question those faiths just as much! lol.
