    I haven't been through the entire thread, but I would pose a counter-question,

    Do Christians understand Christianity?

    I know more secular humanists with values somewhat resembling New Testament values
    than I know Evangelicals with comparable values.

    Then again, my neighborhood isn't exactly overrun with Evangelicals,
    so maybe I've just been exposed to the wrong ones, largely on the internet.
    The ones that I met in the Army weren't especially bright, but that was a long time ago.
    Patriotism is the last refuge of a a scoundrel. Samuel Johnson, 1775
    Religion....is the opiate of the people. Karl Marx, 1848

    Woe to me! I cried. I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.

    Paul did not found Christianity.......Christianity is a body of believers dating back to the incarnation, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.....a body of believers that included Paul, the apostles and thousands of people who heard Jesus speak and experienced the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.....

    Christians follow the Mosaic Law, otherwise referred to as the Ten Commandments, but as Christ stated salvation is a gift from God, not earned by obedience to the law.......

    Church patristic fathers, Christian theologians of both early and late antiquity, and pretty much all of modern Christianity agree that the OT and the NT include passages of allegory and metaphor, poetry, epistle, narrative and that a study of genre is essential to understanding of the Bible.....

    except for a handful of millenialists, all Christianity believes Revelation is a depiction of the Roman era and is not a map of the end times.....

    since Jesus is in truth the God of both the New and the Old Testaments, it is ridiculous to pretend he had nothing to say about killing children or sexual relations between men......

    the other 98 cents......
    Take away the concept Jesus was the incarnation of God which actually only developed after the Roman Empire converted from Paganism political might to spiritual power of suggestion. That old Eastern wisdom of mind over matter philosophy that went westward since China developed I Ching, India developed Hiduism etc.

    Point being, did Jesus recognize the universal constant within biological separation reproductions are only timed apart as spontaneously here simultaneously changing population now and each lifetime is specifically never staying the total sum adapting in space mutually tmed apart now. Sure clocks and calendars are essential for preparing for worst case scenarios, but the worst case scenario possible is no more great great grandchildren added again within this generation.
    Every brain born has a lifetime conflict with ancestral displacement and intellectual social position within the population present. Why, life is a compounding connection between inception, conception, death, extinction life doesn't exceed what exists now.

    it would really be cool if your sentences used verbs.....

    when you cannot defeat what was said, attack how it was stated hoping people follow your lead since their reality is as vulnerable as yours. Humanity by consensus governs ancestries cradle to grave with speculation over biological displacement anyways.
