Re: The meanining of the Christ?
- Little is known of the St. Thomas Christian beliefs in India before the Christians arrived and slaughtered them. About the only thing we know is that they would say "We are all the Christ."
Pretty much what someone that believed in the Gospel of Thomas would say, trying to reason with a Christian about to slaughter them.
(And yes, there's evidence Thomas actually went to India.)

I can choose to accept whatever I wish and bash everything and everyone else. That is the wonder of mankind. We have ego driven thinking that clouds our Divine origin. Our minds are molded by masses that wish to have loyal followers to their thoughts. It is enough to make me think, why try? We look to the written words of men as if the truth exist only there. We call those that don't agree with us foolish and wrong. Most persons will argue to prove that we are the only ones that are right. How foolish is this? The truth is in our deepest center and we know it not. Peace to all
