I'm retired, sort of. Still teaching in the sense that I am a mentor to trainees at the formation house of my sect. We are literally not "christian", because we never accepted the "christ" heresy about Yeshua. We are one of the "ante-Nicene" sects. In fact we are far older. We are ante-Cappadocian.
A lot of what comes up in debate on threads like these is best referred to as "Saulianity", and that has very little to do with the teachings of Yeshua. Saul is mostly Greek philosophy, a little diaspora phariseeism, and a good bit of Philo of Alexandria.
Here's a fun and easy read about that:

Interesting. Thanks.
