Funny, but I usually agree with most everything you write, Brian (must be the Scots ancestry - or possibly merely the Scotch - in me). However, in this case I think you're barking up the wrong tree. Jar's professed beliefs seem to me to have quite a few elements of arianism and monarchianism (without the adoptionist bits, AFAICT). Whereas these systems are considered heretical, they are nonetheless Christian, if anti-trinitarian. OTOH, I've accused ( :D ) jar of being a closet deist because his faith is highly inclusive, rather than the typical exclusionist doctrines of most organized Christian faiths. It's actually rather refreshing - someone who thinks there are multiple paths to the ultimate goal. Even if I don't agree with him on what that ultimate goal might be.
