I hear this often, and I don't really understand why this is. I don't see my fellow Chrisitan held any higher than I hold myself, when it comes to what is right or wrong, and how we treat each other.

Do Christians feel this way about themselves...that they are "above" others?
Perhaps this is that "elitist" attitude that I dislike about Christianity.

But see, I don't see him as a God. I see him as my equal, my neighbor, brother, father, friend....what he did in his life...the love and light he achieved IS very much attainable to me. I need only live my life with love as he did.
