  • Quite "simple" -- Yet, misleading.. at best.

      Because...
      THAT is not precisely what you believe.
      And, if you were to take the time to consider...
      Precisely what it IS that you believe...
      You would be able to understand that...
      What you believe IS, by far...
      Much More Complicated...
      Than that which you profess.

      For instance...

      You Say: Believe in Jesus,
      IOW believe that He once walked among men
      However...
      Even though I believe that Jesus walked among men...
      -- Having been born the son of Mary and Joseph...
      -- Jesus was the legitimate heir to both...
      -- The High Priesthood of the Zadokite Lineage...
      -- AND... The Royal Throne of David.
      THAT, according to YOUR beliefs...
      -- Is not enough.

      Because...
      -- We differ on the very definition of Jesus himself.

      You Say: and that He exists now in Heaven
      And, as a Universalist...
      I can honestly say that I believe THAT to be True Too.
      However...
      Once again...
      My belief, according to YOUR belief...
      -- Is not enough.

      Because...
      -- We differ on the definition of... "Heaven".

      You Say: tell others about your belief
      But, when I do that...
      Your beliefs are offended...
      And I am declared to be...
      -- A Heretic and a Reprobate.

      You Say: love your neighbor,
      do unto others as you would have them do unto you,
      Which, I agree, seems to be a perfectly fine philosophy to live by...
      And, it should be sufficient to say that...
      -- I do believe I've got that covered.

      You Say: and leave the rest up to Him {Jesus}
      However...
      When I did that...
      I was led to the beliefs which I hold Today.
      Beliefs which...
      -- Because You are not yet able to comprehend...
      Once again...
      Are declared to be...
      -- Lies and Heresy.

      And, of course, as I have pointed out before...
      Yours isn't the ONLY belief structure...
      To be held, beneath the Theological Umbrella of "christianity".

      Yes, John...
      There are others, also proclaiming to be "christians"...
      -- Who believe differently than YOU.
      And, according to THEIR beliefs...
      YOUR beliefs would be considered to be...
      -- The Anathematic Prattlings of Heresy.

      So, you see, John...
      Your belief is more complicated...
      -- Than you profess it to be.
