I hope you can appreciate that it will take me some time to digest your expansive post. I will try to get back to it by tomorrow. I see some specifics we view very differently, and I would like to offer my viewpoint and to make sure I understand yours. I think you're reading into some things I've said to shape the perspective you think I have regarding Christianity vs Islam and East vs West. That is a little off topic of where I thought you originally wanted to go, and I think you may have made some assumptions regarding how I view Christianity and the development of culture rather than it's appeal to a specific culture.
Other than that, I definitely want to address the scriptures you've presented from my perspective vs. yours
Thanks for your post, however, lots to discuss!
