you would be judged based on your heart and how much was your heart and actions in harmony.


That raises a good question. Can we be held responsible for what is in our hearts? What we think and feel has been given to us, either by others or our chemical make-up. If someone is mistrustful of others, greedy, selfish, uncaring, can they be made to just stop being that way?

Its a good excuse for people who don't want to take responsibility for their actions and inactions.
The truth is that we have the capability to act in the right ways even when our way of being raised, society, desires etc want to make us act otherwise.

No, no, I'm talking about how we 'feel' and if a god can hold us responsible for that. Even an angry, antisocial man knows that it's not right to kill or steal, but that doesn't change how he feels.

If a man is miserly at heart, and has no tolerance for others, yet being convinced that he will face the wrath of god he donates to charities and puts on a falsely caring face to others, which will god judge him by?

It has been said that god judges men by their acts.

If a man has a caring heart, but is mislead into believing that his neighbor is evil, and so kills the man, which will god judge him by?

Why should you care? From your post you seem to be one miserable person with no hope and no faith. You see mankind as a stain upon the earth.

"snot-nosed, pooping, peeing, bleeding, gassy, sweaty, self-centered, greedy, violent, masturbating monkeys"

1. What makes you think I'm miserable?
2. Point out one word that isn't true in my statement.

You, my friend, are the one living a lie. You want to think that the human is something special when it is CLEARLY just an animal.
