So, if Jesus was mere man, rather than Incarnate God and Savior, then what need do you have of him? So, if Jesus did not literally die for your sins, and rise from the dead, then what should you have to do with Christianity? It is upon these things that Christianity was - and still is - founded. Today, many, many people try to claim Jesus and Christianity while simultaneously ignoring the historical foundations of the faith. Why? I honesty do not know why this is so. Christianity is a creedal religion all its own, historically speaking. Religious progressives and liberals should stop leading people astray and just go the whole way and publicly claim whatever it is they are in reality becoming (as the apostle suggested to others in a similar contextual situation in Galatians 5:12). I would rather - and I do pray - they all just come home.
