Subject: RE: BS: Disprove 'Christianity'...You can't.
Depends on how you define "Christianity", doesn't it? I must have heard at least a thousand definitions of it by now. :-)

Jesus was not a Christian! (in my opinion) A Christian is a self-proclaimed member of a group that he has indentified in his own mind, and then said to himself, "I am one of these people."

Since the many groups of Christians differ enormously from one another, and even often disagree violently with one another, it becomes quite confusing deciding what the word "Christian" means, frankly. It appears to me perhaps to mean something in denial of something else...such as, "I'm a Christian, meaning...I'm NOT a Muslim, etc..."

I don't worry about it. I'm a human being. I don't have to call myself a Christian or anything else in order to follow a spiritual path and seek God.
