    Being a christian you should know that God is Love, so of course the mentally handicapped are not going to be held accountable! If you have made honest mistakes even dishonest mistakes you must repent and turn around. A true christian will not take advantage of Christs sacrifice.

    Ephesians 4:1-6 shows christians that there is in fact one Lord one faith and one baptism. And again Romans 10:2 says that they will have zeal for God but not based on accurate knowledge.

    Jesus plays a very very big part in Jehovahs purpose for the earth. Jesus has been made king of Gods heavenly kingdom goverment and there is no salvation in anyone else . but it is also important that we take in knowledge about Jesus father , who is Jehovah God. as John 17;3 tells us.
    This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ

    true, i agree i think the bible does tell us that many will be following him in the wrong way . so what did Jesus tell his followers to be doing? i think the last thing he told them to be doing was this in matthew 28;19-20
    Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded YOU. And, look! I am with YOU all the days until the conclusion of the system of things

    According to the USCCB (http://www.nccbuscc.org/nab/bible/matthew/matthew10.htm)

    32 Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. 33 But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father. Explains it this way:-
    [32-33] In the Q parallel (Luke 12:8-9), the Son of Man will acknowledge those who have acknowledged Jesus, and those who deny him will be denied (by the Son of Man) before the angels of God at the judgment. Here Jesus and the Son of Man are identified, and the acknowledgment or denial will be before his heavenly Father.
    I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before others the Son of Man will acknowledge before the angels of God.

    But whoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God.

    Niether one of these verses indicate that if one does not have accurate knowledge of God that Jesus will deny this person before the Father.

    The fact that there is only one Baptism, one Lord, and one God is not affected whatsoever by inaccurate or accurate belief.

    I can't imagine why you would contradict yourself with Romans 10.2.

    Obviously, many of us don't even know our honest and dishonest mistakes, in which case we can hope that God is merciful.

    If God does not have mercy, then there is no hope for any of us, especially arrogant Christians.

    The supposed Jesus never existed, a myth, like all religion's gods.

    That's not what I was asking, so why don't you stick to the topic instead of just bringing in a randomn opinion of yours, why don't you?

    Do you really think God would punish us from sins we had no idea we were committing?

    Your reading way too much into this verse. Jesus is speaking about the acknowledgement of Him as Saviour and Lord. We have a relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ and as a result, Christ always intercedes on our behalf to the God The Father.

    Yes, you are. Rather than go off in tangents regarding divergence among some religious beliefs, Jesus made it quite simple to us regarding His promise in this passage.

    That's fine, but the danger is that people miss the message because it becomes confusing after a long thread of discussion and debate regarding what Jesus made so relatively simple.
