I'm not sure who you were talking to but if it was me we go to the definition of Christos which means "anointed" or "enlightened one". We teach Christ as a universal idea, and each one "puts on the Christ" to the degree that he or she surrenders a limited sense of life to the divine realization of wholeness and unity with Good, Spirit-God. We teach the message of Christ as unconditional love, non judgment, forgiveness, brotherhood, and peace. Lifestyle more than religion. We also include other teachers.
As monists we don't separate into creator and creature. It's all one thing. An easier concept could be the Hindu "Atman is Brahman Itself". Phrasing that as "Soul is God" might be confusing. I would call creation and evolution both universal constants. Neither seem to be slowing down.
There are members on this board that do call themselves Christians. Perhaps they would like to engage in dialog. I don't indulge in quarreling theology.

It's great to have here to be.
