I believe in God. I believe the Bible gives us a dim picture of his essence and the history of our awareness of him. It is an imperfect instrument, though, having been largely compiled by many men with as many different agendas. I believe He sent his son to earth to walk among us and set us on a better path, when he thought our race was mature enough to hear Christs more subtle directive. I believe the essence of that directive is largely lost on some of the most vociferous Christians. I believe it is powerful though, and that it will eventually win over most of our race. I dont believe Christ was sent here to start an exclusive club made up principally of prosperous westerners, leaving billions of the poor and the meek to be tossed into the lake of fire.
