The Central Message of Christianity

"Where there is no love, put love, and you will find love"
-St. John of the Cross
Salvador Dali, "Christ of St. John of the Cross" (1951)

as seen by atheist Slavoj Zizek, "Politics of Shame and Shamelessness"
Christianity... an egalitarian community of believers that takes all responsibility for what happens, its' message is NOT "Trust in G_d", but rather, "G_d Trusts us." Jesus died and said, basically, "It's up to you, Holy Spirit, the Community of Believers... I will resurrect, but NOT as a person, but in you and your community.

"I will resurrect, but NOT as a person, but in you and your community."

Oh, really?

What about Doubting Thomas?

...again, as seen by an atheist, or in my case, a Deist, (one who doesn't witness it first hand).

...a way for an outside non-Believer to understand Christianity.
