Aside from never having been an Evangelical, my pov is the same as yours. Who cares if Christians "exclude" you or call you a "heretic"? Jesus would
have embraced you and thanked you for "getting it."
I would have Flagged your thread, but you were addressing Christians. I did star you, though. And may I say, on this utterly beautiful "Sunday"
morning, that I couldn't really care less if they see me as "one of them in their eyes." I'm not, and no amount of ridicule, name-calling,
threatening, or maligning will EVER cause me to WANT to be "one of them."
The members who have taken the time to read my posts and threads should have no doubts about what I believe (and what I realize I don't know, as well
as what confuses me); if they do, I invite them to ask me. Some who have invested time and thought into my pov have
been Christians and a
handful have upheld that my "spirit" is on the right track.
I'm 'one of you,' dominicus; and you are 'one of us' who sees beyond rote dogma. We don't need the approval or disdain of Christians either way.
(It would be nice if the nasty ones would lay off, though.)

Okay, yeah....I'm FLAGGING this one. It needs to stay on the boards for a while. (Says I)
