    Molly, that was an excellant way of explaining things. To me the idea of Trinity put that idea into a doctrine, a way of explaining to people in an age when most could not read, instead it was memorized.
    Very good indeed.
    I agree, great explanation MollyMo!

If someone still has no idea what to make of the Trinity ,virgin birth,miracles but regards Jesus as the ultimate criterion of his/her mortal life and finite death and thus as living ,then it cannot be denied that he/she is a christian.And he/she is different from that other person who Believes in the concept of the Trinity,miracles,etc. but draws no conclusions from it for his/her own life and death.
    I think its called "walking the talk"

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you mean.

    Anything I choose not to discuss, unless that is unless I change my mind. :-)

    In other words,
    "Faith without works is dead"

    Like the elements of a chemical reaction that travel on a continuum dynamicaly according to the orbital influ....................:zzzzz ........uhmmm, if you believe in God.........act like it!

    The whole point, when I digressed, was this:

    What is the foundation of Christianity based upon?

    I know what Christianity means and what it means to be a Christian, which I think is what ohbet keeps coming back to.

    RNCountry, MollyMo and pkmom helped out by trying to explain the foundation of it being rooted in belief of the resurrection and the Holy Trinity.

    We went off into the actual theology as opposed to the idealogy of Christianity.

    I find these types of discussions fascinating and think that we are doing a great job keeping it objective without stepping on any toes or being offensive.

    If I remember correctly Jesus was a carpenter and a teacher.. both noble professions.

    He wouldn't make it through our nursing program. One of my teachers is a hospice nurse and she is passionate about easing suffering and pain.

    It's only one man's opinion,but he certainly seems to have researched thoroughly, then set up this comprehensive website.

    I admit I only skimmed through the introduction, and the epilogue, but there seems to be plenty food for thought.

    I think Jesus could be a great nurse, but the first time he healed some redneck on disability, he would get shot by the redneck's family.
