Heh. Yeah.

My anecdote is that is essentially what 'de-converted' me: Jesus' test for being a follower. "By their fruits you shall know them." Yet it is impossible to clearly and objectively decide who is Christian. You either cut off a large portion of people (I managed to repeatedly demonstrate *I* wasn't a Christian let alone people I knew to be of less passionate belief) or incorporate people who would be horrified to be called Christian (John's "He that loveth knoweth God." etc). And this by the Divine Incarnate who demands "let your yes be yes, and your no be no. Why is the Bible (the meaning therein) interpreted?

'course I'm just 'preaching' to the converted.
