I think the religion you belong to is irrelevant when you die. You don't have to be a christian and be "saved" to get into heaven, that's total BS. Do you think God would take in a "born again" Christian man who murdered 10 people, or a non-religious good person who did things for others and lived a good, honest life? Christians just use the "saved" thing to feel special, i guess. It's quite ignorant though, really.

I doubt Jesus actually meant you have to "eat" him.
I put forth the proposition that such is a conspiracy implemented by Christians to attain and control members.

Here's an 'eternal life' requirement for ya' -
John 6 51 - Jesus said 'I am the living bread which
comes down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will
live forever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the
world is my flesh.'
then Jesus backs this up with John 6 53-56 -
So Jesus said to them, 'truly, truly, I say to you, unless you
eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have
no life in you; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has
eternal life, and I will raise him up o on the last day. For my
flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He who
eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me and I in him.

It is symbolic with the word, of his body and blood and a PHYSICAL reminder of our forgiveness of sins, and of life ever lasting.

I am curious, does only the Gospel of John talk about this
flesh eating and blood drinking thing or is this mentioned
in other Gospels too?
