Why are "christians" all the time forgetting judge not lest ye be judged?
That seems pretty literal to me and yet at the same time they are professing
literal interpretation of the bible (wonder which one bud chooses to take
his literal interpretation from) they are judging others in the next breath.
Now does that make any sense? Be an ax murderer all of your life and then say
you believe in God and accept Christ as your savior the last day of your life
and be forgiven ans accepted into heaven?
Like Judge Judy says "If it doesn't make sense it probably isn't true."

A Godless society can get away passing the buck claiming one's
axe murdering tendencies are due to a father that didn't love
one enough or because one grew up in a poverty, crime ridden
Religion says *you* are at fault and redemption means *you* have
to do something about your condition to make it right.
At least that's my take on the meaning of forgiveness and redemption!
"Rammed??? I give up. no one here has the guts to take the
what they have done to me over my beliefs. "
Budd, honestly -- that's a little over the top. At the end of the day,
it's just words on a screen read and written by fat losers with too
much time on their hands.
Since someone else referenced Ben Franklin:
"The worst wheel of a cart makes the most noise."
Your wrong, Budd; I have read it cover to cover. Have you? I know you
haven't. If you did then you wouldn't make the statement that you believe
