...............It is a religion of a convenience. It is ok to kill,steal,cheat and do harm to others as long as you state that you accept the Jesus and have it in you hart. Your sins will be forgiven. ......
John 14:23-24 23Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.
As James says, it is not enough to "say" we have faith! Such a faith is dead, being alone, and will save no one! We have to prove that we have it by our works, obedient works.
And those works are specifically, "Obeying, Doing, Following, Keeping the word of God".
Jesus says: "If you Love Me - PROOVE IT - Keep My words!"
Father Abraham loved God above all, and God called him His "Friend"! It was for ALL of Abraham's sons, ALL having the same faith as their father that will share in the love of God… for these are "His friends"…
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. "Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." John 15:13-14
Only "His friends" are going to be found "Worthy" of His Kingdom, those who do what ever it is He commands. (and the "first" commandment is to LOVE the Lord thy God with all your heart, all your strength, all your mind and all your soul.)
I know the Lord well enough to know that "He means business in what He says", and "if" any of us are into "false teachings" of the kind that denies Jesus His rightful place (past, present, and/or future) and is out to rob us of our crown, it is because of these 2 reasons…
#1. Because we have "Little or NO Fear of God" in us!"
Or if we once had a "smidgeon" of it, then we lost the moment we allowed the enemy to influence us with "his" voice, whereby we chose to follow "him" instead, obey "his" word instead, keep "his" word instead. And that is how we lost sight and sound of the Lord and His words! We Lost our first Love!
#2. Because we do not Keep and Obey the Truth of God's word...
He brings us under judgement by allowing us to become members of doctrines and beliefs that are contrary to His word! That is why there is always so much "resistance" to the Truth out there! Because THEY DON'T DO IT, is precisely why they don't want to hear it either!
It is hard even for the "innocent" (Although no one is truly "innocent". They may be young and gullible at first -- maybe) to be brought out of the mire they've allowed themselves to be led into by "other" voices that are not God's.
"But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him." I Jn 2:5
You are more than a survival-of-the-fittest

It has four arms that can bind to four other molecules, that looks surprisingly like the ________. (gotta watch short video, I can’t do it justice ok?)
Supplemental verse: Colossians 1:16, 17 “For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and IN HIM ALL THINGS ‘HOLD’ TOGETHER.”

Evolution is not 'survival of the fittest', a fit individual can be rendered useless when taken out of it's habitat. CD never made up that phrase but in response to it he said "survival of the most adaptable."
You are splitting hairs...really.
Occams Razor would agree an all powerful God doing that would be far more probable....
The evolutionist, God love um...is at a loss when it comes to explaining complexity...sorry...
it about design....it doesn't just happen?

No, science "holds" us together, not Jesus.
Jesus was more than likely a real man, he more than likely did great things.
However, if Jesus we're to be so powerful and all knowing, he would of correct the path of humanity along time ago. Especially if he can choose to come to the earth whenever he want's to bring armageddon and wrath upon those who sin.
I suppose I'm headed to "Hell" which is impossible because such a dimension existing would truthfully be evil within itself, and just because I've committed adultery, done drugs, and got a few Drunk in Publics, and I don't necessarily believe in Jesus as my one and only savior, I don't believe i should go down a fiery slide of razor blades into a walloping lava pit called hell.
By the way.
If we exist because of Jesus, then why do other planets exist.
The earth isn't flat, last time I checked.
