However -- probly about 1 in 16 kathlix will admit that they are atheists. Hencely praps 10 of thems 163 are atheist.
And 1 in 16 of 532 iz 33 atheists. Making it 34 atheists. And if obama iz an atheist then that might make it 35 -- 36 not forgetting the VP.
Christian atheism is a theological position in which the belief in the God of Christianity is rejected or absent but the moral teachings of Jesus are followed.
Christian atheism is related to Jesusism, the Christian theological-philosophical movement named for its understanding of Jesus as a simple teacher of morals, in direct contrast to orthodox Christianity, which claims that Jesus is divine.....
Jesuism (Jesusism or Jesuanism) is the philosophy or teachings of Jesus of Nazareth and adherence to those teachings. Jesuism is distinct from and sometimes opposed to mainstream Christianity. In particular, the term is often contrasted with the theology attributed to Paul of Tarsus and modern Church dogma. Jesuism is not opposed to the Christian Bible or Church doctrine, but rather it does not affirm their authority over the teachings of Jesus. As a philosophy, Owen Flanagan characterized Jesuism as naturalistic and rationalist, rejecting the conflict between faith and science. Though not specifically associated with Jesuism, the red letter Bibles are one method of studying the teachings of Jesus......
No such place az Nazareth. And no such person az Jesus Christ. On the other hand there were lots of Jesuses and lots of Christs -- even today the asylums are fullovem. And churches are allso fullovem -- would u beleev halffull -- would u beleev a pew or two -- would u beleev one altarboy (with a sore bum).
The pejorative use of the expression "Pauline Christianity" relies in part upon a thesis that Paul's supporters, as a distinct group, had an undue influence on the formation of the canon of scripture, and also that certain bishops, especially the Bishop of Rome, influenced the debates by which the dogmatic formulations known as the Creeds came to be produced, thus ensuring a Pauline interpretation of the gospel. The thesis is founded on differences between the views of Paul and the apostles in Jerusalem, and also between the picture of Paul in the Acts of the Apostles and his own writings, such that it is claimed that the essential Jewish or Old Testament character of the faith was lost (see Jewish Christian).
Christian anarchists, such as Leo Tolstoy and Ammon Hennacy, believe Paul distorted Jesus' teachings. Tolstoy claims Paul was instrumental in the church's "deviation" from Jesus' teaching and practices, whilst Hennacy believed "Paul spoiled the message of Christ." According to Tom O'Golo, the Ebionites believed Paul was a false prophet whose task was not to convert Romans to Christians but Christians to Romans. Irenaeus, bishop of Lyon, wrote in the latter half of the 2nd century that the Ebionites rejected Paul as an apostate from the law, using only a version of the Gospel according to St. Matthew, known as the Gospel of the Ebionites.
Tom O'Golo postulates several key elements were added by Paul to Christian theology that weren't evident in Jesuism. These included:
2.Making Jews the villains
3.Making Jesus divine
4.Transubstantiation of bread and wine into actual flesh and blood
5.Jesus' death being seen as atonement for human sin
6.Making Jesus the Messiah
7.Shifting the emphasis from an earthly to a heavenly kingdom
8.Enlarging the chosen people to include anyone who accepted Jesus as Saviour
9.Making salvation a matter of belief in Jesus almost regardless of the demands of the Torah
10.Establishing a hierarchy (literally a holy order) to create and control a Church and more importantly to create and control the beliefs of its membership.
It seems that Roman Kathlix are not Christians at all -- they are Paulians.
