Hi Harv,

Sorry if I'm a little hard on you sometimes. I'm not here to teach or preach anything, I just like to understand people who do not seem to think as I do. Maybe one day I'll get your point; for now I'm still learning.

" My Christian faith does not depend on Jesus walking on water. In fact, it is almost irrelevant. My faith is based on a Christian framework which I believe is sound and the heart of Christianity. The framework does not require a belief in all the supernatural acts mentioned in the bible as being literal accounts. "

Well, at least you have to realize that "Christian framework" is too vague a concept. If your faith does not depend on anything particularly significant about Jesus' life, I honestly have no clue what the object of your faith is. My best guess is that you have faith in the ultimate goodness of the universe, and that you have chosen to express that faith through Christian language just because you happen to live in a Christian society. I honestly don't see how your world view cannot be satisfied by any creed. In fact, from my perspective you have far more in common with Buddhism than with Christianity.

But again, this is just how I see things.
