The "God of Israel", which is god of both Judaism and Christianity, is but
one facet of the Supreme Creator.
Another facet is female, or we wouldn't have women, because a creator cannot
create what is not a part of themselves.
Sin? Oh, you mean mistakes? Those are my reponsibility to resolve, and
telling a god does not resolve them. I *do* something about my mistakes -
unlike you and a lot of other Xtians who think verbal repention is enough.
I'm glad your religion works for you; however, it does not work for
everyone. It did not work for me, though, whether you believe it or not, we
revere the same Deity.
Pluck the log out of your own eye before worrying about the splinter in
mine. Also remember that you are commanded to love your neighbor. I, and
many others like me, are also your neighbors.
Now...as I said, if you are going to preach, take it to Xtian newsgroups.
It's horribly off-topic, here.
