Zingcreed – the world’s one and only Christian-atheist blog – is not tied to any church or partisan viewpoint. It can say what it wants because it is simply the musings of one person, a retired science teacher in North London. YOU chose to look over my shoulder and see what I’m writing, no-one asked you to; not that I mind. Zingcreed (stupid name, but I can’t change it now) seems to have gained a certain notoriety in some circles, but it has never advertised. I honestly hope you get as much from reading it as I do from writing it.
In this brief post, almost the last in the Just Jesus, No God! series, I’m piling up together words selected from the Just Jesus series. Words used by my chosen writers to describe Jesus. Words like hobo and hippie. They are not my words – I’m just reporting what’s out there. If you’ve been reading the Just Jesus series you’ve seen them anyway. It is not my intention to give offence. If you don’t think you’ll like this post then skip it. No holds are barred. I report what I see.

Why not print the page and in a group use highlighters to mark the words and phrases you agree with/dislike? Discuss your choices.
The writers I have taken these words from are not a bunch of raving atheists: most are involved with bible study/theology in one way or another.
When you’ve finished, how about Jesus’ entourage?
