Klodomir:

I take offense at you saying we are using mottos and slogans.

My simple comment of "Jesus is love" is pure and the truth.

However, for you to recognize and understand this will take time on your part. Having us tell you who Jesus is becomes meaningless - you have to "experience" Jesus. In some ways, it is as simple as an amusement park ride - you get that powerful thrill. The huge difference though is that this thrill lasts with you forever, not just the 60 seconds of the ride.

Even though I don't believe, I honestly do appreciate that.

Whom? What? Jesus? What an unusual name.....

Just kidding. Anyway, I know one thing, He was more "punkrock" than alot. I believe Him to be the Messiah, a Man full of Grace, the Son of God come to teach us how to live as beings created by God. I don't think He bears much resemblance to the Jesus taught by TV preachers, but that's my opinion. I think He was the ultimate in humility & compassion as God-in-flesh. I think that He didn't care too much for the self-important Religious hierarchy nor for money-changers in the Temple. But, what do I know, I'm just a big 'ol sinner?!

Jesus is the way, the truth, the life.

Who are you?

I can tell you who he's not. He's not a great teacher and wise prophet. How could he be? This guy claimed to be the Son of God! He claimed that the only way to God was through him! My goodness--he claimed that he WAS God!! That's crazy talk! No great prophet would say that kind of stuff!
That leaves me with 3 choices about this guy:

He was either a total looney, a scam artist, or he was who he said he was: God.
