    I think that the crucial issue with the diffent denominations are not the CORE of their beliefs as much as it is that they focus on interpretations over scripture.

    While the Trininy is NOT scripture, for no where is it plainly stated that, neither is Jesus being Michael, neither is not celebrating holidays or Bdays, neither is 1914 or any date for that matter.

    Undertsanding the difference between what is scripture and what is interpretation would help many people go a long way to getting along better and being more open to dialoge.

    Although I am always open to debate, I don't particularly want to get along with people who want to force me to accept what is not plainly taught in the bible, if it aint there, shut the f*** up about it.

    I like that freedom for each individual to decide whether or not to celebrate a given holiday. The Bible details the first Christmas celebration as perfect angels rejoicing and celebrating Christ's birth--at Luke 2:10-14. Nowhere does it say after that those angels became demons after that incident.

    I would like to see where in the Bible it tells the majority of Christians to merely observe the Lord's Evening meal without partaking. As I see it, everyone present should be allowed to partake without being shamed out of it, and told that the majority of people will not be partaking. If they are going to worship, they might as well do it according to what the Bible itself directs. If they are going to not go by the Bible, they should at least be upfront about it and not force their interpretations upon people.

    Of which there is one thing the witlesses do not believe that can be proven from the Bible--at 1Thess 4:11. Mind your own damn business.
