Well now...I ca n honestly say as I have been a member of 12+ churches that people do not live the word of christ and do not live the word of the old testament. They go to church and listen to surrmons then after they leave they are more concerned with their reputation than their character. To aspire to be like christ is to become a disciple of christ not just a follower or a frequent reader of the bible. Prayer every night is not connecting with Christ or god its about inner contemplation. Not Asking god for help.
Jesus plainly states of the inward journey. If people are more concerned about reputation than character than they are lieing to themselves and to CHRIST. Which is a sin? I live in the bible belt and more Christians commit more sins than non religious people based on that premise alone. Why do you think only 144000 people will automatically be granted access into heaven. huh...I see more enlightend people who are atheist who are more worthy and most likely be granted access to the entrance into heaven than Christians or Jews.
