What is a Christian, Really?
Robert Schneider

I once typed out all the red words in a red-letter New Testament, trying to distill the words of Jesus as well as I could at the time. Since then I learned how the NT was written by other people long after Jesus’ death, and edited to suit the political needs of the church.

But what I got from the exercise was that were some great moral principles in there. There was also an imminent-end-of-the-world feel, and you-must-believe-in-me.

I would not embrace any religion totally, but seek all the good ideas, inside religion and outside of it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
