So I ask you, what good does your religion do for those against whom you have sinned?<quoted text>
Living a "good " life is important,but the bible says only the Rightous will go to Heaven.
Now knowing that both those who claim to be christians sin, even the best of the best are not perfect, then if there is a God, and He demands rightousness, then that cannot come from ones self.
It must be imputed.
I'm just asking that you question everything you think you know.
It is not about how "good " a person is, it is a position of being a child of God or not that counts.
Perhaps look up the "good test ",to see how you do, if God will judge us by the 10 commandments, how would you do?
It goes back to have you ever told lie? What do you call someone who lies?
Used Gods name in vain?
We view bad things and good things one way.
God views them another.
You don't have to mitigate the damage you have done.
You've just wrapped yourself in a religion(?) that suits your worthless self.
When you die, what will be your epitaph?
