Absolutely. And Ive been laughed at on this board before for saying this, but Christianity is NOT exclusive. In fact, all-inclusive. At the core, that's the teachings. Does everyone who professes to be a Christian act that way? Not nearly.
Ive been somewhat interested in finding more about early Christian church gnostics. They incorporated a great deal of philosophy into their beliefs. Although I'll say not all of their beliefs lined up with history. An amazing Christian artist, and I mean ARTIST, Ive been getting a lot of inspiration from recently is Phil Keaggy. Christian or not, this man is simply amazing. anyway, yeah
