What do you think being a christian means? Or, do you think it is only a religion.

I look at Christianity as less of a religion than a philosophy. Better off as a sect within Judaism. What I mean is, taking out the basic(and required) belief in a Deity, the teachings attributed to Christ are good. Christ wasn't trying to start a new religion, he was trying to teach Jews how to follow the heart of the Law rather than the letter of the Law. The Jews as a whole didn't want to listen, so those that did became Christians. They believed (and I hope still do) that love was the most important thing. That following the Laws of Moses was worthless if you didn't have love in your heart. Not what you put into your body(and mind) but what comes out. I'm sure Christians would disagree with me. Maybe not, I'm not Christian so it's just my view. I've always thought I would make an excelllent Christian if I didn't have to worship "God" in order to be. Gandhi had a simalar philosophy, so did Socrates. I should get a bumper sticker that says....WWSD or WWGD. Force Ps. activate flame thrower......now
