God evolves? That contradicts the Bible and Christian theology, but if you say so...
The 10 Commandments that zealots want to plaster all over courthouses and schools are old testament, too.
So you think it's okay to murder, commit adultery, steal, covet, have sex with everyone, lie, cheat, disrespect your parents, bow down to idols, use Gods name as a cuss word & etc.? No wonder this world is going to hell.

What the hell did you read? Modern Christianity is idolatry. "Taking the Lord's name in vain" doesn't refer to "using God's name as a cuss word." For one thing, the Judeo-Christian god's name is Yahweh, not "God." "God" is a word, not a name. Vanity has another meaning, much more relevant to moral crusading. Plenty of praying loudly in the streets to be seen by men to go around, these days.

"God" is His job title. I don't call God by his name. I don't think I've earned the right to be on a first-name basis with Him.
Speaking of idolatry, I assume you have a favorite ball team or rock star or actor/actress? You probably heap more praise on them then on God.
"Taking the Lord's name in vain" = using the Lords name for nothing good. Whether it's using it as an oath or raking it thru the mud by associating it with something bad.
And the only ones I see praying in the streets are Muslims. They think they can tie up traffic praying to their false god.

You will know them by their fruits. Anyone who calls themself a "Christian" and does evil is not a true Christian. Islam is another story. In Islam they can do evil with impunity. Muslims don't have to worry about being punished for the evil that they do. Their "prophet" and their "holy book" encourage Muslims to do all sorts of evil.

It's funny that it's the same entity. Christians, Jews, and Muslims all worship the same god. They're bith right.
