    I am not talking about the Christianity that has been hijacked by people and religion throughout the centuries to gain power and control. I am not talking about what your opinion you learned as a child in some Sunday school class. I am not talking about what you learned from some friend or website about Christianity.

    I am not even talking about if you think Jesus is a myth. I am talking about wouldn't it be great if Jesus was real?

    The stand up to the corrupt religious leaders of the time Jesus. The I'm going to take in all of the outcasts you so called religious people refuse to be around Jesus. The God so loved the world that he came to save us Jesus. The I am here to make you new Jesus.

    What is the objection to walking with Jesus?

    If I was going to wish for something I don't think it would be this world as it is.

    The world is what you make it to be. That is the definition of being pragmatic.

    I would hope that a real god would be nicer than the one depicted in the bible.

    Nicer than being born so as to take the blame for everything bad you’ve ever done?

    Interesting.

    If that occurred then the original sin is over.
