I was once read a small booklet, entitled "I'm not a Legalist, Am I"...YEARS and YEARS ago.<quoted text>So Jesus (your Christ) is your role model. So you follow the role model that treats ailments as a demon infestation?
I hope you use modern knowledge and history to determine your philosophy instead of blindly following some if the ignorant things Jesus said in the bible.
It was a real eye opener, in that it plainly showed how easily people fall victim to their own self perceived notions of shallow "self righteousness" in their very simplistic world views of mere "black and white" or "right/wrong" or "cut and dry" so to speak....and just how wrong they can actually be with that simplistic a mindset sometimes.
Good little booklette..impacted enough to still remember the name of it 30 years later.
There's plenty of good wisdom found in some of the words of the Bible as well, and not quite sure why you wish to "avoid" THAT aspect of it all sometimes. Bit of a self righteous "Legalistic" nature, that aloows no room for human imperfections and flaws perhaps?
