2 Peter 2
False Teachers and Their Destruction
1But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
How could someone believe in God and the bible but not necessarily the translations passed down?
How do they justify picking and choosing what parts to believe and still be Christian?
It just seems like there should be a rule book the people can easily interpret.
Does the bible say you HAVE to worship in a church or rot in hell?
not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
If not why do some Christians look down on those who don't worship in a church?
Tell me if I'm wrong but isn't a Christian a person who will be saved
as long as they believe Jesus is their savior and they ask to be
forgiven for their sins no matter what atrocities they commit?
Seems to me believing in god gives you a licence to kill, steal, lie,
have sex with children, do drugs, get drunk, and whatever else you
choose as long as you say your prayers every night
Troll- In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory or irrelevant messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response.
So in your opinion can a person that does awful things, like the CEO of a company that puts poison in baby food because it's cheap filler be a "real Christian if he believes in the way of the cross and feels he's doing nothing he won't be forgiven for?
One cannot just get to heaven on faith alone
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved
