You are not Christian so you wouldn't understand Magnus.
I would not say that. I follow the real story of Jesus, The Man, which via the truthful account of the history.
The Christians have so distorted the story of Jesus that it is nothing but a myth that many now reject as being dishonest and untruthful. The Jewish
call the embellished Jesus story a lie. All the Islamics reject Jesus as god and consider him nothing greater than a prophet. Christianty lives a
fantasy tale. The Masons, via the Scottish Rite teachings get it right, and Jesus isn't god and isn't too high in the scale of recognition.
I am just as much Christian as Jefferson, who valued Jesus as a moral teacher and a man, but never as a god, and never one for miracles of embellished
Most folks that don't get all impressed by the word god, know most of the expressions for god in the OT and the NT are wrong. When we go looking for
who walked with Abraham we find the gods of Anu, which is about like calling todays architech and engineers as gods because the posess knowledge for
great works. These are wrong concepts for gods, but those are the concepts of primitive man that appeared to need a god to tell them what to think,
or some icon of a natural force. The need to god appears to come from a primitive need that is in some, but not others. The others tend to be the
most intelligent of mind and they ask all the questions and don't have some ancient co-dependence need to keep them from feeling alone in life.
The Deists got things much more correct in the story that the great architech of the universe appears to have established an order of nature and

I would say that you are not a true follower of Jesus, nor do you know the issues for god. You have read just enough of the Bible to know the
stories and get the typical Christian atta-boys, and likely heard from this list and others the encouragements to keep saying the same old embellished
stories again and again. Didn't Hitler learn these repitition methods from religion?
All the Bible's tales of gods are about Empire/Kings and control over others via one story or the next. This day and age, we don't need Empires,
Kings, or that faked up tales of gods that impress only the vapid of mind these days. Nor do we need churches to amass those in need of these faked
If you are so close, show us how you walk with god or Jesus, as did Abraham in the times for the City of Ur.
You have a belief that appears more akin to one for Santa Clauss exists. You can't show a real Santa, nor Jesus, nor god.
That leaves you empty handed, but you claim you know reality that you can't show anyone. So, you have to say because others don't follow the
Christian's built up fantasy that some are not Christians. It is the typical decay into the name calling of you are not one of us that has the
fantasy about gods.
Anytime you want to show the world god or jesus, you let the world know and we'll come to see. Until then, Santa is as much your god via
If you claim to know reality, it should be very easy to show the world that reality. It doesn't serve your position well to ally with like minded
that can't show reality either.
