Einstein said, "Science without religion is lame, religion without
science is blind." I say, "Reason without faith is lame, faith without
reason is blind."

By your implication, Dick. I use my mind to apprehend what I can
understand. I use my faith when my mind fails. Faith was good enough for
Jesus. It is good enough for me.
 
Face the worst case scenario, Dick. What if Jesus was only a man and
knew he would not be saved, but sacrificed himself anyway so that we
would have an archetype, a role model, a man who knew the law and had it
written on his heart and would die rather than betray his principles...
Would he be any less than the Son of God? Not to me. Even in the worst
case scenario.

## So Rich ---- since you claim to have "secret knowledge" --- if your
Jesus was only an imperfect, sinful man --- please explain how he could
possibly be "the Christ".
