thank you for further explaining and i can understand more where you are coming from and how this works for you, and probably for many others. some of us, i believe, can be open to the life concepts you propose and evolve because of it. but there are some of us who do believe in some "facts" and it may only just be in the area of Jesus. i can believe in the "ideas" about Jesus, but i also already believe He did exist and if you have that kind of faith in that area, then that is at least the one thing you "know." but I would never try to force this on anyone else, any more that i would like anyone force me to think otherwise...but the exchange and sharing of what works for each of us is always enriching.
thanks, i won't!
