    My problem with so called major religions, the terrorize their flock into submission.
    You could always join one of those saved religions, do what ever you want , say your sorry and move on.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    So, you are an advocate of confession?

    I find myself talking to him a lot when I ride down the highway on my bike.... and I'm sure he agrees with me on others driving abilities and heritages..

    I am not sure this is what you were saying... I know a lot of folks that talk to God as they drive, almost every day... and I also know some of them that get regular answers. Do you?

    Did you even bother to listen to the podcast?

    Your problem is you are focusing too much on yourself and others.

    When God becomes your focus you overlook the problems with orginazations.

    No you don't need to go to church to not go to hell, but you need to constantly grow spiritually and follow the Word to lead a Christian life and the word tells us we should meet in groups, because that's where the Lord will be.

    Matthew 18:20 For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them

    God is not bi-polar. That would indicate something less than perfect.

    But Jesus was God in the flesh. Scripture confirms it over and over. To claim Jesus was a created being is blasphemy and calling God a liar. It also says that Christ was a liar...making Him to be sinful and therefore not qualified to be a sacrifice for our sins.

    Maybe you don't associate with the JW's but your beliefs are the same. Might you be Mormon? They're even more weird than JW's.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    From what I have learned of the JW cult, it is based on the same philosophy as Judaism, that Jesus is not the Messiah of Isaiah, that works can "earn" a place in heaven aside from the finished work on the cross, and that God is a singular being who is far away from us.

    They do not believe that Christ is "God with us," that the shed blood is an atonement for all sin, and the JWs believe that the 144,000 are the JW's who are to minister to God in Heaven. In reality, scripture reveals that "the 144,000" in revelation are Jewish men who are virgins. I don't know any JW's that fit into that category.

    Here is a discussion of the 144,000:

    Some folks believe it is just that simple, but the Truth is that you must believe in your heart and confess with your mouth the savior Jesus Christ.


    No easy out.

    No "just move on."

    Worship. Praise. Confession to God. Repentance. Striving. All these are a part of the true "way" that Christ spoke of.

    In Matthew 7, we find:


    21 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 which is in heaven.

    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

    23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

    We have tried to pull the other side into the 21st century, but old habits are hard to break.... They're really harmless if you leave them in their own little world...

    I always get a kick.. Billions of planets, scattered over millions of light years, but the "Creator" saves those who believe........whatever the group speaking says.....
