We didn't discuss it in that much depth.

But if Christ was fully human and fully divine doesn't that mean he could be both - both son of Joseph and Son of God? Surely the doctrine of the Trinity...

Well .... I guess it is one thing to believe that Jesus could have been born to a virgin if that was God's will, and another thing to believe that is what actually happened.

But the creed seems...

Well quite - I'm probably thinking C of E, I'm guessing most RCs do accept the virgin birth. But most C of E's I mixed with didn't (I stand to be corrected of course). There is a tendency to paper...

That's a more than reasonable question. Especially since some Christians tend to talk like that too. It is what is called the docetic heresy - the belief that Christ was not fully human and did not...

You may have seen Nethwen doesn't think unorthodox means heretical - and I get the impression Sulla doesn't either. But it's not a disparaging word to me. I just take a simple approach.

I know what you mean .... it's big thing .... a really big thing. And the language we use is important so as not to belittle what is being referred to.

No - I just meant intended for a minority grouping with a special interest. Although it is true that esoteric interpretations of faith tend to arise in the context of Christian mysticism.

Yes. And to be fair, despite an abrasive loudness in support of other atheists, Jesse does tend to get ignored by everyone on religious threads.

I think it's likely just one or two. I confess I had to bite my tongue when Jesse suggested eugenics as some kind of final solution to the problem of religion as s(he) saw it.

I was, of course, using the word 'heretical' in it's formal academic sense - carrying no sense of apostasy or blasphemy. In the UK, before the CofE allowed female clerics, any C of E person who...
