If we are are to seperate the person from their beliefs and if we are to seperate theperson from their lifestyle and maybe from thier personality what do we have left? when a person makes a statement I am...... the whole universe hears, these are the most pwerful words in our language, for God is the great I am. So when aperson declares I am a Christian he or she is making a statement of who they are! This can no more be seperated from them then any other part of who they are! this is all part of the unity that is the core of our universe. God cannot hate any part of his creation, not you not I nor anyone nor any part of anyone. This may be a new understanding of God for many but it is an understadning that will create the unity for which our souls so desperatly long.
