Hello Jan, I identify as an agnostic not an atheist. It has been my experience that when I discuss theology with an atheist they accuse me of being a theist/apologist. When I discuss theology with theists they accuse me of being an atheist. Just out of curiosity, so I don't make an assumption, which denomination of theology do you adhere to? Are you Catholic, Mormon, Seventh day adventist, Muslim, Jewish, "non denominational"......? Do you consider the other sects of theology as heretics or brothers and sisters in faith? I read the bible and related works from the 3rd-1st B.C.E & 1st-4th C.E. almost every day. I like to think I have a good idea of the original ideas that vyed to become what we now call "Christianity". Which do you identify with and are the other variants acceptable as means to finding salvation? I ask because I do not want to assume your views as others have done to me.
