Is this another example of how you aren't following me around?
You continue prove yourself a liar.
My point is that you are critical about religion , critical about St Paul (and extrapolations) , critical of GW (although that's fair enough) but there comes a point where it's necessary to be positive and do something uncritical.
To me , if you believe that Jesus and his Father have been sold out by religion then you need to start your own movement and recruit members and get us involved in how we might all overcome sin etc etc.
I don't understand what you achieve by your criticisms. There's an old saying - "Don't fight the darkness with the light , just make the light shine brighter" . Jesus said we should not hide our light under a bushell ---but I don't see what light you have - you come across as quite nebulus and hidden. You need to put across your message and back it up with your life. Religion has many faults but at least people are doing something and trying to share what they perceive as the light of Jesus. To me that's a lot harder than criticising form the sidelines.
For example , you have been critical of some examples I have given of sound Christians like Bono who are actually involved and getting their hands dirty saving lives and being positive about the future and justice and spreading their understanding of Jesus. You see to me Christianity is about contributers and not knockers.
