long to come around to this "whole view" perspective on Jesus'
teachings, rather than the dichotomous and patch-worked views of Jesus
and his teachings, which are taught by so many, many churches and
traditions out there. I think that that is one of the keys that
attracted me about these views I now speak of - that my life had been,
to some noticeable degree, spent looking for better, more logical, or
more complete views on Jesus and his teachings.
I was surprised to find in the non-violence and related views, a much
more logical framework from which to openly study Jesus, than I had
presumed to find possible..at least any time soon in my life. I'm
willing to stand up, through my words, for what I see now. But..it is
also rather new to me, and is still a new blessing to hear responses
from people that even fundamentally agree.
Dont know if that logical-framework aspect interests you. But I thought
I would throw it in here, and praise it. ..Thank you, at any rate.

It sounds pretty radical...that's because it is!
