    Dont agree with angies comment, they know Jesus came in the flesh as Jesus, but do they know he was and is God himself when he came. Also the other comment about as long as they believe that Jesus came in the flesh is of God no matter thier religious belief. Budda cant believe this and others like him cannot believe what they believe and believe that Jesus is God i strongly disagree.
