Starting a new topic so that these questions can be discussed in their own right, instead of tagged on at the end of the other issue. Questions courtesy of Oliver, of course!
- Do you presume that it is possible to get to know the Lord Jesus Christ equally well from reading the Holy Scriptures than from meeting Him in person as the first disciples did?
- If all true Christians have to *start* with Jesus (rather than meeting Him somewhere along the way), does that mean that most of us aren’t real Christians if we’ve begun our journey of faith elsewhere? Or do you only start to call us Christians from the moment we’ve met Christ? (Of course, meeting Him in Spirit and not in the letter which kills.)
(I’d love to have a go, but equally happy to sit back and listen!)
