Edit: On further reflection, I'm far less certain about Jesus, so a lot of my textual interrogation interest is in figuing out just what does mesh with historical data and my gut on that score.
And in explaining my beliefs to sk8eeyore I found myself surprisingly open to Joel K.'s God-on-a-learning-curve -- which may change at a moment's notice. Why can't I find that lush imagery God/Lucifer Creation fic I read a while back -- and which I can visualize but which I can't recall sufficient keywords to Google.
I've really gotta get all my beliefs/opinions written down so that I don't make flip generalizations that turn out to not really mesh with what I think when I'm being more thorough.
But the fact that my main motivation is to prove that I am right remains true of my approach to everything, even when I'm still figuring out just what I do think.
