God is the one that puts right and wrong into beings flying around fire in the giant black hostile space. Poetry runs out of the hands of the life made in His image.  No matter what religion you belong to you have to face the fact that you also belong to one family of humans on one rock. I could never make someone believe in Jesus Christ and accept the forgivness given by Him from God HImself. I believe strongly though that we humans all need forgiveness from God because we offend Him. The Good News is, through a personal relationship...NOT RELIGION, but through a relationship and active dialouge with Jesus Christ you can approach God! You can! Indeed there are Christians that no body ever knew except God.

For the record, Christian is wrongly defined in the dictionary. Yes its true.

Youll find in the bible which is the writen basis of the Christian faith, that when a person accepts Jesus Christ into their lives they become saved.

Religion means a set of rituals based on a set of beliefs

Letting Jesus in your heart is not a ritual therefore being born again into Gods Kingdom is not a religion either.

Dont get me wrong, I am religious, I am pentecostal, but that is not what makes me a follower of Jesus Christ. What makes me a follower of Jesus, is Jesus and my personal relationship to Him,  not the things I do in His name.

(cont.)...for more concubines. Can you imagine all the laundry I'd have to do? And who's going to pay for the energy to heat all that hot water?

So if you, or your pastor if he's more up to the task, could really explain just what "Let Jesus in your heart" MEANS, then perhaps I'd have an easier time of it. Looking forward to an answer.

The promise of free will is illusory. Believe AND worship... or burn in hell. Rather coercive... No? Under the American legal system, a contract between A and B will be voidable if A held a gun to B''s head and forced him to agree to its terms. That sort of situation is the antithesis of the principle upon which contract law is based - freedom to contract. It's fascinating how so many individuals fail to see this inherent contradiction encompassed within the notion of god-granted free will.

Catholic priest Oliver O'Grady forced his penis in to a vagina of nine months old baby and caused vaginal scaring, then he went to a higher priest and asked for forgiveness. Now... please, explain how that in anyway has helped anyone?

Of all the gods I could worship none of the abrahamic gods would make the list...not even close to the list...not close to the table the list is on.

Actually, Derick, I can tell you not to witness on this site. I am a moderator and witnessing (proselytizing) is a banable offense. Like I said, read the guidelines. You've been warned.
