I don't know if the majority of Christians think like this
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
(Joh 13:34-35 KJV) - Jesus (Yahushua)
That's not the first step. First step is proving to people that spirits live outside the body's control. I can get the name of a 600+ $600+ book on a brain study for this specific purpose, if you're that interested. (I know OF it, I just keep forgetting the name.) But if you cannot prove that souls exist, then having these non-existing souls go to a "proven heaven or hell" is a moot point.

1st it should be proven that there is a heaven and that anyone goes to it in some form. The burden of proof is not on me. You should expect me to prove that there is an invisible purple dragon who watches over all of us, if that is what I claim. If you don't expect proof, then his name is Fred. Be nice to him, or he'll burn you.
This article investigates the effect of others' prior nonprejudiced behavior on an individual's subsequent behavior. Five studies supported the hypothesis that people are more willing to express prejudiced attitudes when their group members' past behavior has established nonprejudiced credentials.
We are more willing to do bad if we have recently done good. We also think we get more excuses to do bad if our group is good:

This is how religious indoctrination works. Get 'em while they're young and fill their heads with hate.

These are just pseudo-Christians, like Westboro Baptist Church. Hate is one of sins, God doesn't hate anyone and he doesn't want to.
I'm Lutheran myself and I believe that only way to Heaven is through Christ himself, your deeds don't matter. I believe Catholic church is wrong about some things, as they worship all kinds of saints and other stuff.

I never hidden my feelings towards gay marriage or towards the gay agenda.
I think the VIDEO is hilarious and its within their right within their CHURCH to do this. Might not be the most proud way to go about parenting but then again they have values like sex AFTER marriage unlike the gay community who seem to like to play pass the aids virus as quick as you can cos we have zero morals!!
Nice gun, im surprised your buck 40 bodyweight can carry it. Try eating a meal and getting down the gym and maybe you wouldn't need that gun to look sooooooooo coooool!!!

So are we going to tell the churches now that they have to say that everyone will get into heaven no matter how bad you are?
I don't think atheists will be going to heaven either but they aren't complaining about it. I doubt if I will make it into those pearly gates and I don't care if the church members sing a song about it.
