Someone who shares my views - amazing! Heh.
Here's another one!
God wouldn't condemn the majority of the world to hell simply because of geography.
It seems that many Christians try to avoid any discussion about Christ-like elements found in non-Christian religions. I think this is a tremendous waste of the perfect opportunity to show how:
1) Christ was anticipated by the pagans (thus their mythical stories about heroic Christ-figures etc.)
2) Christ is the fulfillment of all these fictional, abstract, mythical stories by His true, tangible, historical Incarnation, Crucifixion, and Resurrection
I was raised Protestant, and the main final reason that caused me to totally break away from it was that I kept reading about non-Christian religions and kept seeing so much truth in them. Most Protestants I approached with this information just quickly spouted out various bible verses that say Christ is the only Son of God.
However, after I left Protestantism, I eventually found a book called Christ the Eternal Tao
, written by an Orthodox monk (Hieromonk Damascene) who lives at the St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood monastery in California.
In this book (which I highly recommend) Father Damascene talks about not just ancient Chinese but many other pre-Christian cultures whose beliefs and spiritual practices contained nuggets of unclear and incomplete truth which find pristine clarity and wholeness in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Myrrh23, I think this book would really hit-the-spot for you.
