Some say I am a Christian.
I do believe in Christ Jesus.
Personally I see myself as *me* in the first instance...and whatever belief/faith structure I may have as merely being a component of *me* just like
any other component - be it being male, being 38 years old, being married, being a father, being this that or the other.
I myself hold values that some christians do, they tend to be of high moral value and certainly not unique to christianity or the
I personally don't see any belief or non-belief as having any monoploy on 'good morals' or otherwise. Rather I see it as merely part and parcel of
the wider human experience.
Yes I may know many Christian, many Muslim, many Buddist, many Wicca, many other faith/belief and non-belief
people who are amazingly
beautiful people...so too those who aren't.
Again perhaps the issue is not the belief or lack thereof, perhaps the issue is more about the person themselves rather than any sub-group they may
place themselves (or be placed by others) into.
It's the morals that I don't have that separate me from the christian as my morals are far superior to that of their god.
Cool. Totally respect that and sincerely awesome to hear you say it.
Just as an aside - and please I mean no disrespect by this at all and certainly my apologies if its taken as such - but personally
of *superiority* to another person, or belief, or 'their God' seems somewhat contradictory in nature...again my apologies and do certainly
acknowledge that may come across as 'judgemental'...though perhaps the suggestion that any belief or whatever is *superior* may well be a
judgemental perception in and of itself.
