Down the hall from where? You are putting your little foot in your big mouth more all the time.
So, you are saying you respect Jesus of Nazareth? He is the God I worship. The One you call dirty names and blaspheme constantly.
He asked you to define spirit.
If he respects Jesus then it seems like he is trying to meet you half way. I think it is quite possible to respect Jesus for his teachings even if one does not believe him to be God.
