So as not to continue to hijact the question thread I wanted to start this. First here are most of the posts from that thread regarding religion.

The Bible does not teach that Jesus is any more the child of God than any other human being. It is the preachers of the religions that interpret the Bible that way. Unitarian Christians see Jesus as unique among humans but not as God.<O></O>
Ask yourself which sounds more mythical?that the universe really is billions of years old or that it is 6,000 years old but was created to look just like it is billions of years old?<O></O>

So if Christian religious leaders teach that Jesus is the son of God, isn't that a Christian belief? Also, doesn't the Bible teach that Jesus was resurrected after death? Wouldn't that make him a divine being? If I'm wrong (very possible), then maybe I just don't know enough about Christianity to answer the question.<O></O>

According to Christian teaching and the Bible, all of us will be resurrected after death. I suppose the Bible teaches that all of us are divine then?<O></O>

Only if we accept Jesus. But hey, you're talking to the wrong guy here. I only told you what my understanding of Christianity is. I'm not a Christian, wasn't raised Christian, and don't believe any of it, so if you are trying to tell me I'm wrong about it, you're preaching to the choir (heh, heh).<O></O>

Again that is a misinterpretation of what the Bible says. The Bible says "all" are saved, not just some.<O></O>

Dude, you really have NO IDEA what you are talking about. All aren't saved. Only those who accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and the Son of God. That is in every Christian religion from Catholics to Baptists, to Pentacostal. It is the foundation of the religion. I don't care whether you believe or not, but don't try and misrepresent those of us who do.<O</O
