    Extreme Christians who believe in the, 'once saved, always saved', nonsense seem to treat it as an insurance policy. However badly behaved they are after 'asking Jesus into their hearts' they appear to believe St Peter will still welcome them through the heavenly gates. I have met quite a number of those people during my 69 years on this planet, and that might help to explain why many of them cheated on their partners and their business dealing were less than honest!:mad:

    If your faith doesn't make you a good person it is not worth having and should be flushed down the sewer.

    “Hail, hail! Wilt thou go with us tonight?
    There will be a merry company in the forest,
    and I will-nigh Promise The black man that you will be among us”.

    I would translate what this says, but I think I would not! You do not want to know, which lurks for you..and Verily soon says time.

    Enjoying have you being, for this world (I) giveth unto you...be here with your ever shall to, if be (KNOWN) not in this heaven, and which shall awaits to be soon for you..will come..to what will be done, as it already is in for you..and I be for in surest(insurance)..unto you. And also for the names of your COMPANY!!!

    AND THIS ‘I WILL’ PROMISE YOU!

    Then again, what are we saved from, again? Oh yeah, that's the problem with your idea.

    Work your way into heaven. The bible says, mostly, aint gonna happen.

    You cant figure out why.

    The Bible says a lot of daft things.

    The bible is a reference with lots of quotes. I dont worship a collection of books. My religion isn't a collection of books.

    I don't worship anything, no one or thing is worthy of being worshipped.

    The destination of your spirit depends upon the condition of your soul/body when you die. Most of us do not know when we will die so we should live every moment like it's the last. Only the righteous who have repented of their sin will enter Heaven.

    If the Biblical god exists and what is attributed to it is true, it is all that is evil, Satan could be no worse.

    God gets nothing out of sending someone to Hell. He prefers you keep the covenant and live. The God of Israel is not a sado-masochist, but the god of Christianity is. There is no fire in Hell, the fire is going to be on earth. It is not physical torture, it is mental terror. All sin is conceived of in the mind before being acted out. Hell is also not forever, eventually your spirit will be extinguished, and you will cease to exist. The deaths of both the soul/body and spirit are permanent. There is no resurrection and you cannot be reincarnated. Judgment Day is the day you die.

    You are making a statement with no verifiable evidence to back it up, your take on religion is not evidence.
