    I guess my basis for saying that you wouldn't accept Biblical arguments is
    because I assumed you would attack the validity of Scripture. This goes
    beyond a different interpretation...this is a fundamental difference in the
    way we view scripture. I also believe that the Holy Spirit (God) helps us
    to understand the Bible.

    >study have led to seeing that the nature of his divinity does not alter my

    >Jesus movement do you disagree with?

    For one I don't believe that only a small percent of the sayings of Jesus
    were really the saying of Jesus. I don't want to over simplify here, but I
    have a high view of scripture and would not sacrifice this as I
    interpret...that is an assumption/hermeneutic which I bring to the
    table. I think that the deity of Jesus is a fundamental of
    Christianity. But of course if you don't accept (most of) the Bible as an
    authoritative source then you can support any claim you want. But I think
    we stray off topic. :-)
