I think you would have to agree that the majority of people who consider themselves "Christians" (followers of Christ) believe that He was the person the New Testament writers believed Him to be.<quoted text>
I gladly respond to honest questions with honest answers.
Work out the thinly veiled hostility with yourself and get back to me.
You have said on this forum that you consider yourself a Christian. You have also said that you do not believe Jesus was the Christ/the prophesied Messiah of the Old Testament/and not one of the three individual "persons" of the Trinity.(Maybe not in so many words, so if I have misunderstood, please tell me.)
You have either missed my question or chosen not to answer why you feel comfortable calling yourself a Christian, and who or what you believe God to be, since you say you believe in God.
I hope there is no hostility in my heart toward you personally or anyone else on this forum for that matter. One of the things that keep this forum interesting to someone like me is how you guys can disagree over the same issue over and over, yet continue to try to get your point across to the other side.
The name calling gets a little ugly sometimes, but for the most part I find it funny to hear (what I imagine to be mostly very intelligent, well educated grown men) calling each other names you probably haven't used in speaking directly to anyone since high school ( or maybe drunk, as the case with Chimney last week).
