Yes, there are wolves in sheeps clothing, but Jesus also said in the parable of the wheat that god will sort everythign out in the end, its not your place to do so. If my ideas offend you, I do apologize. Thats not my intent. However, I will be fairly blunt here, nothing raises my ire like someone questioning my relationship with god. You are not me, nor god. You don't know, nor will you ever. This is true of every individual, not just myself. I am not a hypocrite as I have said multiple times that I follow the teachings of Jesus. Unless something changed and I'm not aware of it, Paul isn't him.
There have always been differing opinions on the bible all the way down to which gospels should be included, the divinity of jesus, etc. It has become more openly debated over the past century or two, this is true. BUt christianity as a whole followed human psychology. The oppressed becoming the oppressors. When it was founded, christians were martyred and shunned for their beliefs, since coming into its own as a world religion, it has done the same to other religions. Now to the point where Buddhism and Christianity cannot coexist in the eyes of many christians, which is a sad state of affairs.You're right in the fact that we don't have enough common ground to draw upon. I've used real time scenerios to justify my opinions, you've only drawn on the bible as the definitive answer. Thats fine, but we'll never see eye to eye on things because of that.
