I'm not religious, but I find myself watching The 700 Club for background noise.
A segment on bible illiteracy happens to be on this episode, and it shows some very interesting numbers regarding the true Christian faith. Long story short apparently the vast majority of modern young Christians do not believe in the original and "true" religion, many believe in reincarnation, 80% believe that simply being a good person can get you into heaven and a large number even support gay marrige.
Personally none of this bothers me. Reincarnation, who knows, being a good person well there are a lot of bad people so probably and gay marrige, whatever floats your boat. Just looking for some other opinions preferably from Christians.
Anybody can believe whatever they want but I would like to know why anybody would want to believe in a God that runs the world like a prison and sends you to burn for all eternity unless you adhere to a set of rules that are physically impossible to follow.

ummm yea I'm definantly no expert on the Bible but what I believe is pretty basic for Christians I guess. if you believe that Jesus died on the cross for you and you are saved and everything then you are going to heaven. its as simple as that for me. if I sin I ask for forgiveness and God forgives me. he loves everyone no matter who they are or what they have done. sometimes I do wonder though. I have read that when we get to heaven we will all be brothers and sisters and we will not like be married or anything anymore and we will love everyone equally. I don't rly see how that's idk...ummm fair? I'm not sure if that's exactly the word for it but how can you love a complete stranger like you would your mother or something which I guess then she won't even be your mother anymore...idk somehow I just don't see how that's exactly right but the fact that ik that God has a plan for everything and that he is right kinda overshadows that and just makes it ok. ik that when I go to heaven I will be happy forever and worship him and that is all I need to know I guess.1
