> hi. I"m a Christian. To be honest...although my life as a Christian began with a definite conversion experience ("born again experience"), I sometimes hesitate to say that I'm a Born Again Christian, because...in the US at least, -some- self-described Born Again Christians are mean, mean, mean people.

I really like you CE and the way you look at things. I understand what you mean about 'born again'. Some of those people are nuts. My father was Catholic, and he was born again as well.

I'm a lot more mature now, I don't think I Have any personality disorder labels...and my new personality (complete with some much needed soical skills!) has proven to be a huge blessing. oh, and I"m also a lot healthier, physically. Before you dismiss this, just keep in mind that Jung was big on spirituality and such...just not on Jesus, for whatever reason(s).

I also acknowledge that there's loads of evil and and suffering in the world. In Christianity, that's one result of The Fall...we live in a Fallen World, marred and scarred by sin, in desperate need of redemption.
