Let’s be honest. What does Jesus really represent to Christians? He represents the perfect human expression of God, with God being the unknown power, cause, and relationships underlying all things. The ideal interaction between mankind and God is demonstrated through Jesus’ life and teachings. Resurrection myths were written to express the belief that Truth and Love can never be destroyed by anger, oppression, or death. As Christians grow in our understanding of Jesus’ life and teachings and demonstrate his principles of love in our lives, we grow closer to experiencing the full reality and living inspiration of God.
Life is an individual spiritual journey for each of us, but even as we grow and learn separately, we find ourselves drawn together, as love is expressed, into an ever-expanding community of spiritual unity. This awareness has no boundaries. This is Christianity as I have always felt it to be. The only miracle I ever need to prove the authority of the Christian message of Love is that when I seek it out and rely upon it, it works.
