en.wikipedia.org...edit on 20-2-2012 by seedofchucky because: (no reason given)
The question was who had the greatest influence...
That has influenced western civilisation this centuary?
IF you look at the state of Christianity anyone can clearly see very few KNOW him...
I believe Jesus had and still has more influence over western civilization then anyone in history...
without the bible , you wouldn't know jesus from santa claus.
The bible is a broken record , full of contradictions , evil , blasphamy , and fairy tales.
The state of christianity today and all its sects are direct evidence of how corrupt the bible is , and how people interpert what the bible is saying.
Jesus made some promises that don't work , Move a mountain , drink poison etc...
everything you know about this jesus character is from a tainted book. I'm sorry , but that doesn't fly with everyone. You might be cool with it , but it doesn't hold water for me.
i look at state of christianity today and i can clearly see , none of you know him . Because he doesn't exisit in the form you have brain washed your self into believing.
I know truth hurts , but it will set you free
you mean the indoctrination of jesus. you don't know what jesus did , was , or what he said. The bible is broken . You only have a interpertation of who jesus was. Nothing tangable to accredit to jesus , besides of course your subjective feelings of how he tickles you at night when you pray
Your hatred of religon is quite evident, i don't blame you honestly...
Though i would check who your speaking to before you assume im just some christian trying to preach
His lessons are flawless, but the bible is FAR from flawless...
Those statements are alligorical... though i admit i've moved many mountians in the past few years...
criticism of scripture , is not always hatred. But taken that way , by a few. criticism of israel , also some are quick to label anti-semetic . No need to use such harsh words , to describe some obvious problems with jesus the bible , and giving him label of
what the op has asked. Now what is obvious here ? yoru devotion to whatever religion you are attracted too. What also shows , is how quick your ready to label.
If your not christian i apologize , i get lost with all the different sects.
My apologies your highness .
This is where we lose reason and logic. and dive into the relm of , subjective reasoning.
you preception of jesus all came from the bible , his stories , lessons etc. Regardless if you don't believe the bible. You still read it . You took in information , you stored in the information in your mind. Why don't we take a vote and just get rid of the bible all together and dismiss it as a book of Blasphemy? Would you sign up ?
That way we can teach the future kids about jesus , based on what we "feel" instead of the flawed bible . Unless you encourage giving kids books that has many flaws and contradictions in it ? then letting them figure it out?
Did you ? could you tell me more about your metaphor of moving the mountains? take that literal ?
I have no religion, nor do i label myself in any way...
Change the heart of a man and you've moved that mountain.... change the beliefs of one that thinks his beliefs are solid and you've moved that mountian...
Thats good , but how would you label this ?
"The Only True Religion is having a relationship with GOD. Any information, belief, action or non-action that improves one's relationship with God is part of the True Religion."
What can we call that ? "Only True Religion"? default ? connection ? no religion religion ?
Now many religious and non religious think this same way . So many voices pulling towards different paths. Sure you can argue they lead to the same place , but one path is shorter then others , among less thorns on the way! Now who has got the shortest path ?

So then who is the god you have a realtionship with ? How to distinguish between a realtionshihp , and a false positive?
