A: Do you believe in God?
B: There is life, and the inter-connectedness of all living beings. It doesn't hurt to call it all "God."
A: Was Jesus God?
B: Jesus expressed life dramatically.
A: So, was he God?
B: If God is all, then Jesus was certainly part of God - a God filled person.
A: That's a yes?
B: Yes. No. Maybe. Does it matter?
A: I thought it did.
B: Then, yes, sure. Jesus is as good a symbol as any other for the Sacredness of life.
A: Does Jesus save?
B: Anyone who helps you express hope, appreciate life, and share love is a savior.
A: How's that?
B: If someone helps to liberate you from despair or fear or self-loathing, they've saved you, haven't they?
B: What's forever? Now's good enough for me.
A: Do you know Jesus?
B: The spirit of Jesus is very present. I've engaged that spirit. So have you.
A: How do you know?
B: We're talking about him. That makes him here in our imagination, our thoughts, our consciousness. If he's here with us, we must know him, at least somewhat.
A: You make it all too simple.
B: You make it all too hard.
A: Aren't you afraid of Hell?
B: Fear is Hell.
A: I'm skeptical.
B: Wonderful! Stay that way if you can.
