It is so easy for non-gentiles to take a slippery stance...<quoted text>
I didnt mean to get too intensive regarding the difference between worship and think - I was using think in its most inclusive form.
The point is that Hughbe LIVES to discuss Jesus (or his equivalent). I dont. My attitude (out of profound respect for other peoples philosophies) is benign neglect. I dont have an oppositional self concept.
I dotn even "accept" the querying language on Alex (He asked - do you "accept" Jesus?). Accepting Jesus is a theological philosophy straight out of (a version of) Christianity. I just ignore. To a evangelical Christian that would be non acceptance. But to me it is ignoral - I have no use to think in some other's religious terms.
The whole "theological non-fiscal non-gentile cliff hanger" against Christian gentiles has to do with the total denial of Jesus by his fellow non-gentiles who attempted to murder him!
When the non-gentiles take a collective stance ion ignoring, rejecting or denying Jesus points to the accuracy of Gospel claims about the non-gentiles!!
