Jesus and the 'personal relationship'

Came across this blogpost: You Do Not Have a Personal Relationship With Jesus Christ over at Atheist Revolution blogs.

  1. It is unlikely that Jesus ever existed as a historical person as described in the Christian bible. But even if there was compelling evidence to support the historicity of Jesus, he would have died over 2,000 years ago.
  2. There is only one way an individual can meaningfully be said to have a personal relationship with a deceased person.
  3. The "personal relationship" you have is fundamentally a relationship you have with yourself.

It's a good read, and while short and to the point, it covers some of the bases admirably well. You should pop on over and give it a read.
