Not all who profess themselves as 'christian' believe any such thing. Details matter greatly when it comes to understanding & knowledge.

Thank you for this post. Please elaborate vis-a-vis Christian doctrine that is NOT about "Jesus dying for our sins." I do not consider myself Christian but I thought that was the central core of their beliefs...
You are promoting an un-reformed movement, headed by individuals who were high up in Scientology.
A reformed movement might be brave enough to remove some of the written stuff, even make slight alterations here and there and have unanimous policy and on things which were a grey area in the Church, such as Sp declares, sexuality, ethics etc etc.
But then only an SP would want to change source materials and then we end up back on the vicious cycle! It makes the subject hard to reform.
There is definitely truth when critics state that the problem with Scientology, is that a lot of the materials are not Hubbards, or that source is the problem, or that the Church ARE trying to apply standard tech as much as possible. Unless something changes, this dismal scene will continue.
This is old news commented on in depth.
Thanks for answering.
No, it makes the person appear as if he doesn't care about the differences because in the context of what is being discussed here on ESMB, it rarely matters.
Can we get back to discussing the Freezone? Some times Mark, I feel you try and derail threads a bit, so people are talking about anything but the Freezone. It might have been uniquemand that raised the issue of Christianity, or yourself even further back.
Lets not derail threads under the guise of being clever and knowledgeable about other subjects.
See, I don't think so and I'm the one who created the thread. I think that threads meander. I can prove it, in fact.
We were talking about differences in faction. I made a comparison/analogy to Xtianity. We then discussed it.
I think that if someone of whom you approved were to meander in a thread, perhaps you'd regard it differently.
