Please don't take this as an attack on your beliefs, as I feel we all have the right to believe what we wish, but...
This is where I DO have a problem with Christian ideology...
Shouldn't there be more reason to be a "good person" than merely the risk of eternal damnation? Shouldn't we all strive to be the best we can be simply because it will improve our lives and the lives of those around us today?
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"
"Do as ye will, lest ye harm none"
The kindness and love in our hearts and actions should be for the betterment of life, not the fear of hell.
But, that's just me...
