Re: The word made flesh!
You quoted John 1:14, part of a long intro passage that all but maybe 20 of all Christians the world over and for the last 2,000 years believe is describing Jesus. Now, I wasn't given a programme at the entrance to T-Web that might include a description of "Christian (Other)" so please forgive me for going with the statistically safe assumption I was not talking to one of those 20.
If you want to argue about whether or not Jesus was the word of God made flesh, there are more than enough Christians here who would love to take up that debate. I'm not going to argue it, I have no dog in that hunt.
But if you aren't trying to tell me that Jesus is "the word of God made flesh" then what are you trying to say? State it as simply as you can, because I'm apparently too obtuse to understand your point so far."Few of us take the pains to study the origins of our convictions; indeed, we have a natural repugnance to so doing. We like to continue to believe what we have been accustomed to accept as true, and the resentment aroused when doubt is cast upon any of our assumptions leads us to seek every manner of excuse for clinging to them. The result is that most of our so-called reasoning consists in finding arguments for going on believing as we already have." - James Harvey Robinson, American historian (1863-1936)
