(CLARIFICATION)Hello???, the whole thing is made up.
Nothing sceric of truth in the whole thing. It's amazing grown human beings can think There's a God or spirits.
hard to believe a christian could refer to themselves as both christian and spiritual - whatever spiritual is, just seems a hopeless sinner would not fit the bill of also being spiritual. or anything else.
Maybe they weren't really believers. Outside of Islam maybe, I don't know of any religion that calls for violence, death, and destruction.
Most is. I believe Christ: NO MAN can come to the Father, except through Me.
I am not sure that being a Christian requires the scrupulous adherence to a specific set of doctrines and practices of a particular church. As far as I'm concerned, if you believe that Jesus was the Son of God and he died to save us from our sins, then you are a Christian. Period. All the other stuff that goes with being a Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, or whatever is beside the point. IOW, you can be as spiritual as you want (as long as it's legal) and still be a Christian. But that's just me.
is that all -
what of forgeries and fallacies to circumvent the true message a person has died for.
what sins are christians unable themselves to stop committing - - to require someone else to die for - - and what has that to do with liberation theology and self determination the itinerant died for.
Sorry, you're asking questions for somebody above my pay grade and also my limited ability to understand liberation theology and what you're talking about. As for Christianity, I ain't a Christian and I don't know which sins have to be forgiven and which don't. Not my bag, but I won't judge anyone else for their beliefs. Don't care much for sacrificing any living thing tho, not cool.
RE: Should we Really Call It Religion?
⁜→ Colin, et al,
BLUF: You should not allow a label (in this case: Religion) to interfere with your concept. If there is a word that can be misconstrued, either define it or spell it out more distinctly.
There is a serious distinction between "Science" and the "Supernatural" ↔︎ "Within the physical laws as humanity understands them (Empirical Evidence)" and "Beyond Scientific explanation (Faith-Based)." In saying that, it is important to remember that man's knowledge is forever temporary.
Then, in some people's minds (those that take you seriously) or those making an opposing view might ask: Is "God or spirits" the same as in meaning the "Supreme Being or Supernatural Entities?" (Both monotheistic concepts.)
And yet again, in your concept of the Supreme Being, do you imply the characteristic of being as having omnipotent, omnipresent, omnibenevolent, and omniscient abilities?
On the matter of the term "Science," do you include the "Noetic Sciences?" (A multidisciplinary field of study that brings objective scientific tools and techniques together with subjective inner knowing to study the nature of reality."✮) or do you consider that as a "supernatural endeavor?"

previous centuries of its existence.
Well, relative to the statement (" It's amazing grown human beings can think There's a God or spirits.") I would put forth that there are many very famous and quite notable scientists that believe in a higher power.
Science is sometimes misunderstood. For instance, take the case of "String Theory." Is it science? Well, it cannot meet the rigors of the Scientific Method.
