So... Jesus is your Bail-buddy?
You can do all kinds of horrible stuff, and as long as you believe in Jesus he'll get you out on bail so you can run-off?
I'm sorry, but that just doesn't make sense to me that God would work like that...
It was a pretty well-made video, though, and fairly entertaining.

Ashley, I have immense respect for both you and your beliefs but sorry, that represents everything I find abhorent about Christianity!
I didn't ask anyone to die for me, indeed, I don't need anyone to.
I stand on my own two feet and wish to be judged, (if any such judgement will come) on my own acts and deeds alone.
The belief that God, (and I'm sure your aware of my doubts around this whole concept!), would be this arrogant is beyond me and this video portrays Christians as egotistical hypocrites, (something I know many are most certainly not).
That Christians believe that using their blind faith in a dogmatic creed or their use of their belief in Jesus is a get out Of Jail Free card and enables them to take the moral high ground over someone who has devoted their life to the welfare of their fellow human beings whilst lacking faith displays an arrogance beyond belief and displays a lack of 'grace' in my opinion.
Sorry if i've upset anyone or derailed the thread in any way
but I can not accept that a mass murderer who accepts God on his death bed has more right to entry into your Private Members Club rather than the Gandhi's etc of this world.
Just what sort of God do you believe in and why would he demand that????
