    What kind of a relationship are we suppose to have with Jesus Christ?

    One that is between you and him and no one elses bussiness....

    That's a great question. As a JW, I had a very arm's-length relationship with Jesus. I couldn't pray to him (though I MUST pray thru him -- made for some strange mental pictures!), so I couldn't really have a relationship. I mean, it's bad enough that god doesn't talk back. But if *I* can't even talk, what exactly do we have that passes as a "relationship"?

    So when a JW quits and becomes another sort of Christian, that must be quite a change.

    I had a very personal relationship with Jehovah, like he was a father/friend. I remember imagining sitting in his lap, and also hugging him. Is THAT the sort of relationship you now have with Jesus?

    We are each our own supposer... Therefore the relationship is subject to our own reality.

    What sort of relationship should you have with Brahma and Shiva, among other great gods of the Hindu world? WELL, hundreds of millions of people would ask that of you!

    The same as two fighting Gladiators.

    If your God is true, you will embrace in death.
