I think you are correct in saying that all christians are not alike, just as lumping anyone who believes in anything other than jesus and god, get lumped into the 'new age' basket, along with every other belief system, that is not christian.
I don't subscribe to any belief systems designed by man, whether they be christianity, or other belief systems. They are just stories, but as such, can have some good information, and one can learn from all these stories.
Thank you for sharing your beliefs, and exploring the information in others.
I will, however, not take up your suggestion of asking jesus anything, as I don't see the point of addressing a mythical being, (who perhaps may have just been an ordinary man at some point, I certainly don't know that for sure), but mythical in the sense that man has projected in this reality. To me its like asking the tooth fairy if santa claus is real.
