I'm sorry you are lost.
You're either religious or a politician. The two don't go along.
Now after posting this two camps will form. Those who think I am insane or that I am blasphemous and the others who wonder how come I speak as if I was God. My purpose is not to convince anybody of anything but separating the two lots. Those who can believe me and those who cannot. Dividing the lots we were born into.
The two don't go along.

There are two types of people. Spiritual and carnal minded. Believers and unbelievers. Lovers of truth and lovers of lies.
If a great promise is made he who cannot believe it is an unbeliever.
However this is not possible for unbelievers only believers can understand and accomplish this transformation.

I think morality is simply a persons ability to distinguish between right and wrong behavior. I don't need a religion to tell me hurting other people is wrong. I don't need someone else to threaten me with eternal punishment to be kind and courteous to people I meet. I surely don't need it to love other people. My emotions tell me that. It comes from the heart, not a book or because someone else told me to I HAD to. I honestly don't think dedicating my life to a religion is a moral of any kind.
Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
