      I am not a Christian. However, this does not mean I automatically dismiss the philosophy contained within the belief. Mahatma Gandhi had a picture of Jesus on his desk. When asked why he didn't become a Christian he replied with typical intuition, "When I see people living as Christians then I will become a Christian.".

      .....as Jesus witnessed of the Pharisees and the Sudducee: "Do what they say but not what they do."

      Christians in this age knows the virtures of being a Christian. Inwardly, they are hypocritical, deceitful, contemptuous, haters with racial pride. Thus applies to all that call themselves a Christian. Even the Pastors, Ministers, Rabbis, Pope, and such titles under the Christianity hierarchy.

      The "Truths" and Man, do soon parts.

    The ability to be all righteous and the clever way in which they disregard any who believe the opposite....it's an outdated belief system that brainwashes the weak minded...being a Christian isn't all that fashionable these days!

      I agree that being a Christian isn't fashionable.  The definition I follow does differ from yours.  Mine is "To understand and follow the teachings of Christ."  I particularly like His messages concerning forgiveness, love, and tolerance.

          If you did something to offend me, I wasn't aware of it, so not sure what I would be forgiving you *for*.  I was merely pointing out how our definitions of Christianity differ.  Its a forum for discussion, after all.

              So which is it?  "...he wouldn't share them at all." or "Jesus did one thing right....giving us Easter eggs!"

                He sold us the idea of sharing easter eggs, but he gave them all to himself....he was sneaky that way!
