What or who is God to you?
I think you're lacking in fundamental understanding of the character of God.
Lessie that's a good question, deserving of a good answer... My Goddess is Amaterasu.. she is that which created my world, not some recycled cult
from ancient Rome that gained some steam around 36 CE.....
There is one line from the bible I try to point out whenever I can, the translation is different in every version but it's basically "I am a jealous
God, worship no other besides me" well hmm... there was a Roman myth about a God that said those same words, his name was Mars (Ares in Greek) and I
am sure if you go back further you can find him/her in Egypt, Mesopotamia, India (Hindu, Epic of Gilgamesh is awesome reading on the "flood" some
4000 years PRIOR to Noah.) as well as a lot of other sects/cults etc.
There is a school of thought, I happen to espouse it, that states that the early Christians were in fact an offshoot of an obscure cult of Mars that
was thought to be eradicated by the Empire early on.
something to think about as you push Jesus Christ on everyone.....
