I think you might be right. I almost hope for his sake that he is

I'm not questioning his beliefs, just his odd behaviour

His obsession with the "rebel" is suspicious, deep.

Jesus probably was a rebel and he was indeed apparently from Nazareth. However, Iron Horse's beliefs seem to be reliably conservative on nearly every count. Not rebellious at all.

If you want to serve the age, betray it. That is what Jesus really did. They hated him for it.

I'd gotten the sense Iron Horse was more of a libertarian. He's very big on smoking and whole milk as I recall.

As for the rebel designation. . .I don't know. . .it doesn't really appeal to me. Everybody tends to want to make Jesus over into their own image. "Oh, he's a gun-toting conservative like me," or a "he's a socially progressive liberal like me" or "he's a rebel, like me." I tend to think Jesus, were He here, would confound us all. (Which is why the whole WWJD thing seems ridiculous to me. Heck, half the time his own followers had no IDEA what he was going to do next. Do we really think we're so much smarter than they were?)

Oh no, I don't mean to paint Jesus as a modern-day liberal of any stripe. I mean the two might gel in some respects but the reality is that he was a devout Jewish man walking the earth in the days of the Roman Empire.

The one thing he did not seem in the Gospels, however, is smug or complacent.

The only sensible question is to ask "what DID Jesus do?", and do that.

Which seems plenty difficult enough, thank you...
