This is really intended to be a thread for Christians, but I cannot find a Christian website which runs a forum. I will be comfortable with non-Christians and atheists joining in, even if their posts are eristic. When I talk about the Word of God I mean as it is written in English (very odd English) in the KJV version (John 1:1). I am no literalist, once describing the Bible as a collection of dusty old books. Therefore the written words, in any language, are merely an instrument to help us reach out to God, through Jesus of course. Can I still claim to be a Christian?
