    Does the God of Jesus Christ reject you? Or do you reject the God of Jesus Christ? Reject meaning to refuse to recognize, (allow,) acquiesce in, submit to, or adopt, (the primary English OED meaning of “reject”).

    Why is this in debates?

    It's better to say that my energy and Jesus' are incompatible like fire and water. I am of the fire, Jesus is of the water... Both are necessary but cannot exist in the same space. :D Or, call it alignment, attunement, or affinity.

    I don't not refuse to recognize him, but he is irrelevant to my existence as at the level of essence we are opposites. When I move in that direction the water and fire combine to make steam in the air. The mind races... I lose my spiritual center. So, I do not fight with my nature but abide it. :D

    For those whom the water appeals, of course, do not offend me. But, one cannot pretend to be a sheep if one is the wolf. It's simply delusion.

    I would have to know that Jesus existed to either accept or reject Jesus. I simply see Christianity as mythos. If Jesus was God i would be forced to accept things i do not like as being reality. And acceptance would be easy. A no brainer.

    I think that the OP may not know not understand the concept of a false dichotomy.

    I do not reject the God of Jesus Christ. I believe in that God.
    I do not know if it rejects me, I hope not. :eek:

    By sacred scripture, Jesus and god rejects me. I can't reject them. The creator doesn't exist and jesus isn't god (case in point only); so, that's illogical.

    More accurate would be: "Followers of Jesus Christ in general tend to reject/judge other: a)Religions + b)BeliefSystems + c)Masters + d)Diciples + e)Humans(Atheists/Humanists/....)".

    Are people rejecting God, or rejecting your idea of God? That is the actual question here.

    It is more that for me there is no Jesus to deal with. Our relationship is comparable to oil and water. Neither will mix. :D
