I'll try to answer without writing a novel.
Do You Believe in the Literal Christ? Yes and no.
Okay, maybe I'll elaborate a little.
do you believe in the Christ who is the literal son of god, who suffered for the sins of all mankind, and paid their debt?
Yes. But I feel that way about many people that I see around me. I believe people are sons and daughters of god. I believe people suffer for the sins of all mankind. And I've seen many people pay the debt of other people's sins.
That he was divine, and was resurrected?
Divine, yes. Again, it's one of those "we are all divine" things. Resurrected. I don't know but I lean towards no. Unless we're talking the elements that make up someone's body returning to earth and being repurposed in the elements that make up other living things.
whether you believe in Christ as the literal person he is generally believed to be at church
do you see him as a symbolic figure
or perhaps even a good man who modeled a good life?
Where do you stand on the issue of belief in Christ?
My answers could be seen as mostly a dodge but to answer the question you were asking...
Sort of like how I feel about the stories we attribute to Christ, the best conventional wisdom of the day was gathered together to make a more complete ideal. Members of the church have taken upon themselves the name of Christ. Individually we may make up a less than perfect (whole) Christ but collectively we approach perfection. Collectively we have suffered all that humanity has ever suffered because we are humanity. Collectively we can be in a position to alleviate the burdens of the people that suffer because together we are strong. Collectively people will continue long after we are dead, so in a sense Christ is eternal and living... for as long as we hold on to the vision.
Christ becomes more powerful to me when I look at my neighbor or look at myself and consider that we are literally Christ. The Christ that sits in heaven waiting to bless us someday or the Christ that is rooted in the past - where I only need to reflect on "Christ" and what he has already done for me and my ills somehow magically go away with a mere thought - isn't as powerful as taking on an active role in bringing about the atonement myself. Doing something that makes a difference in someone's life, something right now
to help alleviate the burdens of another.
To me that's how Christ lives. When we do something that Christ would do for someone in need... and sometimes we can do it ourselves, other times we need the help of a whole community coming together.
