You also say that Jesus is some fictional character from some pre-myth story but you don't back it up. What story?
This guy is a good writer and he just babbles on with this article making stuff up as he goes along. It is also funny how you support Law of Attraction. Guess what dude, the law of attraction is the belief in God. This this part man you need to get a clue.
As a Christian you should believe the entire Bible. So you have to believe all animals were created instantaneously in their current state sans evolution. You can't just cherry pick parts you like and discard the rest. How do you know that "all you have to believe is that Jesus is the son of God?" Did you just make that up yourself?
Jesus probably never existed. There is no evidence that he existed independent of Biblical accounts. The historian Josephus who was alive in Jesus's day never wrote about him. The Talmud has one reference to someone who may have been him, stating "Yesterday, Yeshua was hanged." But Jesus was crucified, not hanged. There is not so much as a letter to Uncle Himey stating that there is a man in Jerusalem performing miracles. You think if someone was raising the dead, there would be more news about him. Egytians also never mentioned him, although they had a sophisticated writing system.
To top if off, Jesus's story is very similar to other stories which are largely considered myths. Horus was born of the virgin Isis. Krishna was born of a virgin. Mithras was born on December 25.
