I recently found that American Indians supported a similair belief through prophet Dekanwida. My christian friend says christianity is the only religion where God reaches down to man. I would love to learn more from hubpages international community.

SidKemp, thanks for taking the time to answer ALL the dimesions of my question and the facets raised by other commenters here as well. Your excellent and thorough response leaves me spiritually enlightened.
Wow thank you! I had that almost (but not exactly) right. I learned something. Go, Sid. :)
Thanks YogaKat & CR. After I get out of the Apprentice Bonus program - 7 months - I hope to write more like this. In the meantime, know that their are aspects of Buddhist practice that parallel Christian models of grace, faith & works/
The Absence of Sin in Sexual activity in Mary's parents that qualify her the candidate to bear Jesus as son is totally confusing Plz Sidkemp explain -Many Thanks
I know of no false prophet who has claimed to have risen from the grave. It is true, however, that the magicians of Pharoh were able to perform magic tricks, counterfeiting the real miracles performed by Moses.
Those are excellent examples eternals3p. New religions are never created in a vacuum. They always borrow and steal from the older religions of the time.
I wasn't saying that they happened, just as I do not believe the birth of Jesus of Nazareth was immaculate, virgin. This is from a purely historical standpoint.
Mithra was born full grown from a rock. I guess you could call a rock a virgin but that is a stretch imo. Horus was birthed by Isis a married woman, who would have consummated her marriage. When her husband died she used him to conceive Horus.
There are no devils. The teachings of Mormonism are no more false than what you consider real Christianity. It is all an invention of man.
Oh...okay, tussin, thanks for the heads up. My mind was spinning in utter confusion until you came along and added clarity to my life. From now on, I shall look to you for truth and moral guidance instead of the Almighty and His glorious Son.
