"All I learned as a child was that Christianity was bullshit. Only after I discovered the truth independently was I able to extract any truth out of the Christian scriptures."
I believe that I understand. This has been the case for many of us. The paths of life that we have followed tend to teach us certain things. Everyone could isolate and describe the general trend of what life has been teaching him. Usually, the tone of the experience is set pretty early---a dramatic experience, an event, a person who delivers a strong message, a loss, things like this---and the whole rest of one's life seems to be about 'following up the octaves' of the original experience.
When one isolates what exactly you-all are teaching, the elements stand out quite strongly. You could list them. What we say we 'know' is often a kind of reduction to axiomatic phrases. Usually there are not too many of them. They are usually pithy and concentrated and they are rarely transcended, since it is these core bits that one is destined to work with.
With the weight of experience we can indeed, and we do, go back over scripture, Biblical stories, and compare what has happened to us with what is there as a story about what happened to other people.
In your world-view, your Jesus (or David's anyway, I've not heard you talk too much about Jesus) is a man who has achieved precisely the kind of awareness you describe as 'enlightenment'. You see it as something Japanese, or Zen (or whatever are your main influences, these names you mention from time to time). Apparently, you have done something similar to what they have done, this Zen-seeing without unconscious 'projection'. And it seems that this is pretty much the only way y'all can see Jesus---as a teacher of 'enlightenment'.
But if Jesus is a teacher of enlightenment, he is teaching an enlightenment that is well beyond the doctrines and views you are presenting, such that the Biblical Jesus is not at all identical with Quinn, Solway or Rowden. Also, this Jesus figure is an historical outcome
, a prophet with a connection to the other prophets, to a tradition, to social doctrines
(the main emphasis of Judaic teachings is man's relation to the social body, in Christianity 'the body of Christ'), but there is next to nothing of this in your doctrines, which is puzzling.
