Whats so appealing about jesus for you RCD
I've obsessively examined all manner of evidence for four decades +, HN, as it relates to just WHAT is Reality, how does it work, what is the potential and how can I manipulate the Laws therein to my advantage.
I have (for now) *concluded* that our kind (humanity) is indeed in need of a form of 'salvation', in order to further progress into realms of knowledge that would otherwise become highly problematic. Like in...self-destruction. A blind date with the Singularity.
I'm a sucker for a high...and high adventure. I despise the "life of quiet desperation", the 'normal' culture du jour, as being a form of pernicious blindness/spiritual sickness, in relation to the Creative potential and our heritage which is possible for them who so desire such. A subject form of vision...not readily perceivable. With GREAT latitude. "Ye shall know the truth...and it shall make you FREE" (Jesus).
I choose to BELIEVE the Gospel. That Jesus Christ is exactly who he claimed to be, and exist for the REASON (salvation) which he claimed. That He - and he alone - is indeed imbued with a power that ONLY God can exercise. If not so...then what manner of limited and imperfect being could exercise such a power. In an absolute sense that is.
I do both feel responsible for and do exercise a form of stewardship over those things which my conscience bids that I do so. People, animals, the Earth, etc.; a form of reverence and Love toward all things that were created for a great end. Greater Love.
After all...why would God not share love with many, instead of just being a Singular potential. NWS the problem of necessary evil.
I'm as open-minded as they come. But for now...I am CONVINCED. If it aint broke...why fix it. And besides...I'm happy; and enjoy the 'fruits of the Spirit'. Boredom don't exist. Nor the mundane. That ain't an easy task for a man of my aspirations...or any man for that matter. Especially if they look deep, live hard and harbor great expectations. In these days, or any. Death stalks...that matters. Time is of the essence; like the clock on a chess match.
Good luck buddy.
