JESUS

Dreams obsessed with Jesus, plus a surprising number of personal cameo appearances by Jesus in dreams. Plus the occasional megalomanic dream where you ARE Jesus, of course. Now, now, no need to blush. Couldn't happen to a nicer reader.

RELATED TOPICS: Christianity and Christians - God (the monotheistic one) - his buddy Buddha - various gods and goddesses - religion in general has a fuller list - See also the full INDEX OF SUBJECTS.
