It's been bugging me for quite some time, and Hybrix's thread about what Christians/Jews think of each other, and his other thread about evangelizing has only fueled my interest to try and understand the importance of Jesus. Don't get me wrong, I have no intention of changing my faith, this is just purely a matter of wanting to understand the following: Why do Christians, who do their utmost to try and convert people to Christianity, need to try and convert people who already believe in God? As a Jew, I believe in God, so why do I therefore (according to Christianity) need to believe in Jesus as well? Isn't believing in God enough? Surely the son of God is below God himself, so therefore believing in the "parent" is what's important.
