Am I a Christian? What in the hell does that word even mean? Am I of....

Am I a Christian? What in the hell does that word even mean? Am I of Westboro Baptist that hates gays? Do I want to kill abortion doctors? Am I a Christian that for the first 1950 years had no thoughts about abortion, never breathed a word about abortion, as Jesus never breathed a word about abortion, or of the last 50 years where it's the only thing that matters ever since some evil folks in the Republican party and the fundamentalists realized it would be politically advantageous? Am I focused on getting a condo in the sky and avoiding burning in hell for eternity, two things about which Jesus never breathed a word and never conceived of? Am I a Christian United for Israel, a country Jesus and all the prophets he revered would have condemned, because they want to see a war between the Jews and the Muslims to bring about Armageddon so that these Christians get raptured into heaven while the rest of us are slaughtered? Am I a millionaire pastor with less chance of pleasing Jesus then a camel has of getting through the eye of a needle? Do I go into some church building, something that Jesus never spoke of, never did, never advocated? Do I profess Jesus as my Lord and Savior, something that Jesus never called for never advocated and condemned as lip service? Am I of all hundreds of denominations, or which particular one, virtually all claiming to be the only true one? I could go on. Am I of a cult that systemically abuses children women and boys sexually? My God, I'm absolutely not a Christian, nor should you be, and neither was Jesus ever or would he be today. They are the scribes and Pharisees under his brand, which he condemned then and would condemn now. James

I don't remember when Jesus said that we needed to wait for the apostles, John, Paul, Peter, Pentecost, Calvin, Luther, Pastor, priest, Bishop, Pope...CHURCH.... CHRISTIANITY... To be able to follow the path he showed us. I do remember when he said call no man Rabbi except for one, Christ.

James plants seeds maybe not seen for 2000 years. Chuck, John....


 Oh, and the completion of the thought ending this video is, John, a church man, mentioned mid interchange he'd like to make a contribution and I said gladly to the mission. After James further controversial thoughts John had not changed his mind and made a very generous contribution.

Which seems more likely? That the life and teachings of Jesus we're not sufficiently revolutionary to save humankind, or that not one in a million starting with his so-called disciples understood his example and teachings? To me the answer is obvious, the latter. But James, he started a religion! Had Einstein's similarly find a religion there would be no nuclear power and no nuclear weapons.

And then in a Flash I was driving through Detroit....

 Oh what Jesus would do to these rich white mcmansion blue-eyed West Michigan Folk. The money changers in the temple in his day were just a warm-up.

Are those slogans? The elite legal Notre Dame Catholic scholar asked, oh Jesus writings?


 You are one of a kind, the man mentioned several times during our 25-minute interchange. But he seemed to be saying it more to himself than to me. I think he's never encountered anyone that was one of a kind, as opposed to one in a cult. I'm sorry that that sounds cliche but I think it's pretty much to the point. Jesus was one of a kind. We were all born to be. Jesus is inconceivable, and uninteresting, to this person.
