Okay, I am a bit confused, to be honest Lou. I really want to discuss this with you, so I hope you will be patient with me if I miss something. :) Ummm..refering to us, I say every living being, and that will be argued by some that it is only exclusive to certain groups of people. I have my references, and will get them out if anyone wishes. I dont believe Jesus died and suffered for just Christians sins, but all of humanitys. The same applies to your other parts of the question. I dont believe in all of this self-righteous attitude where people brag about their being Christian and it being supreme. Martin Luther again talked a bit about that in the 16th century. That is a man-made egotistical Glory
attitude, made for ones ego. I am a very progressive Christian Lou, and try to be very tolerant and as graceful as possible, as the underlying theme of the Scriptures is Grace.

Hope that helps
Jay
