In fact, and I said this earlier in another thread, I find Deadheads to be some of the most Christ-like people I have ever met.........much to their chagrin no doubt (per this thread).
I don't know if this is fair, or maybe, rather, if it is accurate. I don't think many people have a problem with the associated attributes, but they have a problem with how they are framed and defined. It may seem like semantics to some, but it goes beyond that. Being good
, or living by a kind set of ethics, doesn't have to be imprisoned by such a label, though it is often more easily understood, or associated to one's beliefs, by slapping walls around them. It's a sticky wicket. For instance, I wouldn't describe a good person as Christ-like because that isn't how I filter the world. That's not my perspective, and in the present-day world, using a descriptor such as that, it can be perceived as something unsympathetic, ie with strings not copacetic to other perspectives. That's awful wordy, but I'm lacking the words right now.
