Christians believe that not only is Jesus the only path to God the Father (accurate statement), but that Jesus himself is fully God, of the same being and “essence” as God the Father. God did not enter Jesus’ body at any time, since Jesus was God before his incarnation on earth. He was always God, and still is. This is what Christians call the doctrine of the Trinity. I left out discussion about the Holy Spirit as that part isn’t pertinent to our present discussion.



I'm not one to feed into a religious discussion but I think it's important to note that the concept of Jesus as God or the Trinity is more of a Roman Catholic Dogma. Most Christian denominations do not agree with the concept.

Regarding the Jim Jones comparison, I might have to agree as long as you include the likes of David Koresh, etc.

I'd like to take this off list into a private email, because I feel this is going outside of the scope of the discussion on Akhenaten. But I can show you that this is more than just a Roman Catholic idea and one embraced by biblical Christianity. Of course, NefertariMut, the offer is only if you want, as I also try to stay away from futile religious discussions as well. As stated before, my only desire was for accuracy, not for dissension.

As far as Koresh, we're on the same page there!
