EXACTLY!

I don't think Jesus would appreciate being worshiped. He will be very sad to see how retarded we have become and how we twisted his persona and teachings to fit what the Romans wanted and how it evolved into more retarded concepts as Christianity evolved. No wonder the Jews are laughing at us.

Wow! No wonder Christians are misunderstood. Since when were the Gospels written by the Romans? The mysticism you talk of was well written about before the Roman Government began getting into Christianity with Constantine some 300 years after Christ's ministry.

I agree that a lot of people do seem to stop at the literal interpretation and do not learn the lessons. There are fundamentalist kooks in every religion. I just wish people would see all of them for who they are (the kooks in all religions).
Man is not the zenith of anything. Just another creature that populates our planet. There is no 'greater than' or 'less than', there just is. Christianity cannot abide such humility.

Too true. I strive to be as loving and acceptable of people as my dog was of me.

Feel The Love causes me more "Confessatory" moments than I would like to admit.
