Honestly? I'm not too fussed either way, coz it just ain't worth the candle. If we can't agree on Jesus' deity, the rest is pretty much academic. Start with a fundamental error, and just watch those errors multiply & spin out of control.
That's what happens when you jettison core Christian beliefs. Don't expect the end result to bear any semblance to Biblical truth. I have no problem with him believing those things. The 'problem' arises when he tries to justify them by appealing to Scripture.
