That was very intelligent reply of yours.
Do you see your judgement before even knowing me? Do you have the power of judging someone to hell?
Your reply reflects a lot of you, judgemental, pride, being first class citizen or something and rest are mud. Tell me more about you ?

Confused and insincere, the hearts of man. Made to be judges of their own in divine matters, by the wicked hands of evil. One day they will repent. One day they will remember:
If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels but have not love, I am nothing. If I understand all mysteries and have all faith so as to move a mountain and have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have and deliver my body to be burned and have not love — nothing (see 1 Corinthians 13:1–3).
Give with generosity and cheer.
Treat others, as you would want to be treated.
Sincerity in gratitude for life; even the seeminingly mundane or granted.
Judge not, lest ye be judged.
We seek so often to condemn and punish everyone every which way, out of spite and malice.
Perhaps much of the time, its about forgiveness, rehabilitation, healing, and compassion.
If so, we cannot fake it. We have to wholely go through with being this way.
The devil has not tricked everyone. Some have seen him. Some have heard him. Those of us know not only his craftiness, but more importantly, his forcefullness and power to coerce and possess.
That is where our brothers and sisters, and indeed myself at one time, fell victim to his relentless malevolence.
We were beaten because, while we had outsmarted him, he was simply too mentally coercive to battle effectively. Think ultra psychic mixed with pure evil mixed with alien.
The key to our victory, let it be known, is:
-Proper knowledge and proper application of knowledge
-Strength of mind (wisdom)
-Strength of heart (sincere love)
-Faith and hope
"The issue is that the world you live in now has so many traps and snares, that just in living it you fall into some for instance, the greatest issue in Christianity is the same as the pharisees had it is the self righteousness, the pride, they believe they know so not in humble spirit to be corrected and learn and thus become bound in wrong spirit of Devil."

Christ came to abolish ALL RELIGION, not just Judaism, or Catholicism, but any and all future religion. It creates a separation between men, pitting ideals against ideals and casting out the true teaching of his word. That of LOVE. He wants a personal relationship with us. We are ALL his children. There are no favorites here. When we can come to being like children in the sight of God again, we shall know his kingdom within us. Anyone preaching hellfire and damnation is preaching the word of an anti-christ. Jesus wants our eyes toward heaven not hell. When you focus on the wrath your attention is on the wrong place.
“And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition?… You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.’” (MT 15:3-9)
“You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men… You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions.” (MK 7:8-9)
“When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” (MT 6:5-6)
For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: "Love your neighbor as yourself." Galatians 5:14.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27.
