Christianity, the Most Radical Religion

1. The only religion in which the Deity permanently takes up a human nature. So much for the chasm between the human and the divine.

2. The only religion in which the Deity is made equivalent to love. Love is not merely a trait of the Deity but is the Deity.

3. This love requires relationship. Hence the Deity is a Trinity of persons in which the Holy Spirit is the love between Father and Son.

4. The religion whose foundational writings, the gospels, contain the most radical critique of religiosity.
