Can we really, "But thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I [am] the LORD."? Can I look at Jesus and be him? Can I look in the mirror and see the image of god or his son/daughter? Can I consider a blade of grass as a good neighbor or Motherkitty's pets? In my point of view I can because I am not limited by old wives tales or historical flaws or arguments. I am only limited by my thoughts. If you read the bible it will tell you who your are and though there may be good laws there is also an eye opening.
I will tell you that I have seen words from many religions and they are all truths. Man is not limited by the name of the sect just because he grew up in that particular neighborhood.
I am glad that my daughter Kitten Yarn understands.
We are blessed by an overwhelming gift of knowledge in our lifetime. Even though I am dense in my ability to remember I do have a gift of understanding god in our presence and the garden that he placed us on. Wishful thinking does not place us in the Garden of Eden our presence there does.
I am not a Christian, I am in the presence of God as was Jesus.
