I don't have a ton of time, I just wanted to say welcome. I appreciate your perspective on what makes Jesus the Savior and will ponder on that a bit - I think it may fit my own faith narrative.
In the absence of knowledge or faith there is always hope.

Once there was a gentile...who came before Hillel. He said "Convert me on the condition that you teach me the whole Torah while I stand on one foot." Hillel converted him, saying: That which is despicable to you, do not do to your fellow, this is the whole Torah, and the rest is commentary, go and learn it."

Welcome Felix.

It's interesting all of the different answers you will get to the same question, and in the end, you will forge your own path. It's been helpful for me to bounce ideas around here as I navigate my faith evolution.

I also have little time right now, but I want to welcome you. We have no universal answers here, but we have lots of differing opinions and views.

I think there is an important power in that alone.

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.
