I call BS. Christians can't even agree on what to believe between denominations and born again Christians still commit crimes and vote to go to war. The world wouldn't be any better off.
We can have heaven on Earth without religion. Being forced to believe in a religion is hardly heaven.
That is why Yeshua transcends the religion created by Paul. Yeshua teaches to reach for non duality while Paul teaches duality in his image for his power hungry friends in Rome.

How about a world lead by Scientists and Educators? We could start advancing all our knowledge instead of suppressing it.
Well if you are a follower of Jesus and we all would be I would agree though this world be a great place. Warm/caring people who don't curse, lie, cheat as said in the opening post.. but sure many so called followers aren't followers at all..
He was not talking about how we all should go to church just how to be a good person.
In fact the current state how people are/behave would be almost like the opposite from Jesus lessons and just look at the current state of this world which is getting worse each year.
And it runs counter to what the mass media is reporting and essentially what we feel in our guts. Pinker and other experts say the reality is not painted in bloody anecdotes, but demonstrated in the black and white of spreadsheets and historical documents. They tell a story of a world moving away from violence.
In his new book, "The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined," Pinker makes the case that a smarter, more educated world is becoming more peaceful in several statistically significant ways.
His findings are based on peer-reviewed studies published by other academics using examinations of graveyards, surveys and historical records:
He wasn't preaching about that god made everything or how or when, only how to learn to be a person with a good hearth basically nothing more.

Are you suggesting "followers" are all Warm/caring people who don't curse, lie, cheat?...LOL! Some of the most dishonest people I've ever debated call themselves "followers" and lie for Jesus daily.
Not a fact!
In fact, despite what the tv sells you we are living in the most peaceful period in the history of our species, and it's getting better by the year.
In October 2013, the incarceration rate of the United States of America was the highest in the world, at 716 per 100,000 of the national population. While the United States represents about 4.4 percent of the world's population, it houses around 22 percent of the world's prisoners.
Are you suggesting you need religion to be a good person? I think not!

Now would it not be a better planet earth if, everyone on the planet were or becomes a truly Born Again Christian?
IMO yes. Praise The Lord.
Think about it. No wars, crime, lying or cheating. Majority of the problems this world is facing will come to an end
and we shall have Heaven of sorts on the Earth.
What say ya'll?

He/she has not replied because it appeared to me
from what was written that the purpose was
to force people to say as nasty of things about Christians
as they could.
And what appears to me to be his/her deceit of
purpose is succeeding somewhat.
