What does being Christian mean to you? Is it about being Christlike and looking within, or is it about looking outside oneself? Where is Jesus to be found? Inside, outside or both?

Here is a couple of uplifting videos that, to me, answer those questions:

We have a Jesus on our crew. In fact I drove Jesus to work thismorning. Today Jesus is learning how to pull wire.

Why he should have a gigantic head, hands and feet is a matter best known to the programmer.

Matthew 16 really crystalized my understanding of Christ as being a consciousness that comes from within. He implies in his sermon to Peter that the Church is not God and any men on Earth who claim to be God are in fact tools of Satan. When Jesus talked about creating the Church on the rock, he was not talking about a literal Church. He was referring to the source of all his inspired wisdom.

Church communities are useful because they are places to build your connection to Christ, but the Church has no business being a middle man between humans and God. The real palace of understanding is not earthly. That fact comes across quite clearly in the direct Koine translation.
