I get what you are saying but at the same time hard line evolutionist don't bend the other way either.
It is ok..not everyone believes the same. We can be civil about it and people like Bill Maher and other media used in the thread is what I am talking about being the most offensive.
It is apparent that in a forum like this the conversation isn't going to convince anyone enough to change their thinking or beliefs.

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
