To clarify some of my personal beliefs: Yes, I am a Christian. No, I am not a creationist, homophobe, or even a Republican (pre-Reagan I might have been). I'm a panentheist (not the same as pantheist, feel free to look it up), who identifies as Christian mainly because I like the idea that God loved me enough to die for me. I accept that this is not rational, and that I lack a shred of proof, and I'm fine with that. I have faith, and I don't feel the need to force or convince anyone else to agree with me. If you're pre-disposed to believe in God, I think you should just go with it, if not, that's fine too.

I've written a few satirical articles on CP, that have yet to be identified as such, and at least one editor has been blocked for five years for trying to undo a change I made. I've also written several articles here however, because I frequently forget to log in, many are not attributed to me. :( --Mustex 17:13, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

BTW, I've used several terms to define my faith over the past few months, and while no one's called BS on me, I thought it might be useful if I explained how these are not mutually exclusive categories:

Christian: Follower of (my interpretation of) Christ. Simple enough.

Panentheist: This is my cosmology. The universe is a part of God. That's how I view God's relation to us.

Red Letter Christian: How I read the bible. If Jesus didn't say it, it can be wrong.

Agnostic: I define myself in this in the original sense of the word. I believe the existence of God to be truly unknowable for certain (pretty much why I reject the idea of God throwing people into hell for not believing in him). However, in this sense my agnosticism simple means "I THINK that I can't know for certain, but I BELIEVE this."
