The bible should be the proof we look to in a spiritual discussion. To often that is not the case. Let's go to one section of scripture which will teach in a simple manner that faith "alone" is a false doctrine.

Agrippa was a believer and yet he said the following.

28 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.(Acts 26:27)

Paul by direction of the Holy Spirit recorded this section of scripture for us to read and learn more about spiritual matters.

It is a fact that Agrippa believed the things the prophets spoke about Jesus (Living a perfect life, dying upon the cross, burial, resurrection and assent-ion).

Most any denom will agree those who believe those things are saved. But notice what Agrippa himself says -

28 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.(Acts 26:27)

Even though he was believer he was NOT YET A CHRISTIAN.

The Holy Spirit records these things for us today.

only god can decide who's acceptable to him since we as mankind do not have the capacity to read one another's minds.

i don't need your interpretations of god's word to tell me who and what i am nor what i believe.

Wow , what a blatant attempt at misinterpretation in order to justify one's belief in their own superiority. Agrippa was versed in Jewish theology but wasn't persuaded (hence the term "almost") to embrace Christianity. In other words, he didn't believe.

Saved from What? I have always hated the book that says, If you don't Love me you will Burn for eternity. I can not love anyone under those conditions and find such organized beliefs ridiculous. But if you fear being burned in hell forever you sure better love this God. My God is not that way. That sounds like a human condition just as Man is made in the Image of God. Only Man would be vain enough to think he looked like a God. Christianity has a history of barbaric behavior close to the Moslem's barbaric behavior. They have calmed it down some now due to laws of the land. The burnings and drownings. I simple belief it is all man made. But that Jesus lived and God did but the story has been miscomprehended by man himself.
