I've gone the rounds of many of these Christians throughout my time on here. I've no illusion that they are anything but decent people for the most time (with the exception of one, who for the most time on here, is not a decent person). I just feel their religious beliefs leave a lot to be desired. I'm sure the feeling is reciprocated, and I'm fine with that.
A man asks his pastor "So what do I have to do to get to hell?"
"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father ... And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
"If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." - Thomas Jefferson
