I've heard several atheists (I'm sorry I can't provide the links, it was awhile ago) say that although they don't believe in god, they think the teachings of jesus have merit.
I know that at Evil Bible.com they have a couple of pages dedicated to the nasty things jesus advocated.
What about the good stuff? What teachings of jesus do you believe (if any) have merit? That are actually worth knowing about and putting into practice?
