Read the other month where a religious group found and listed 665 sins in the Bible. The other week the Catholic Church added 3 or 4 more sins.
If you break the law, is that a sin?
If it is the next time you drive on a highway look at all the sinnner driving over the speed limit.
99.9% of Christians sin.
So?

Probably so, thanks to lawyers, liberalism, the "I'm a victim cause I don't want to be responsible for my actions" mentality, civil rights whiners who want it all, ACLU fools who think the world will be perfect cause they say so, politicians who excuse everything and everybody in order to fatten their own coffers, and the list goes on and on.
Thats my story and I am Damm well stickin to it.

this is why God says that there will be a remenant that will actually enter the kingdom of heaven. It makes me sad that so many are blind. Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.

As a Christian, I ask all the atheists to consider the following... that I don't have enough faith to be an atheist - cause, quite frankly, if there's nothing after this, you'll never know, forever; however, if you're wrong... you'll know, forever. So, atheist, why take the chance? Even atheists exercise a fair amount of 'faith' everyday - it's not a foreign concept to them. Ever see an atheist disassemble his car, put it back together, and drive to work - all in the same morning? No, neither have I. Faith in GOD is easier than they're willing to acknowledge. And given the probability that the concept of love, hope and purpose is not lost on that lot - pardon the pun - an intelligent atheist is just a Christian-in-waiting, per se.

And for those who didn't get it... it takes faith to drive something someone else built, serviced, and drive it at an incredibly fast rate of speed, to boot.

We are born into sin, we sin every day of our existence even the pastors, priest ect... God sent his son to deliver us from our sins. We are not here to judge only he can judge rather we go to heaven or hell. I love this time of year it reminds me there is still hope for mankind.

Society is trying to redefine what "sin" is. We try to rationalize away and blame it on every thing but personal responsibility. Just because my parents did not rush out and buy me a new car when I got my license, do not give me any recourse to be a criminal.

Thank you for writing this article. If people would only realize the ultimate end to "tolerance" and "what's right for me may not be right for you" attitudes, then I believe that people would start realizing that there are definite absolutes the the Creator has put into the hearts and souls of man. Throughout the world, in every culture, lying, stealing, killing....is considered wrong and evil. However, people tend to deceive themselves into thinking that they are good and without sin. I think that the realization of sin in my life has absolutely set me free. No matter how much I tried to make myself believe that I was "ok", deep down I knew the truth. When I faced that truth and admitted my sin, I was truly set free from the guilt and pain. I hope other will search the deepest depths of their hearts and be set free from it too.

Today,alot of people have excuses to justify the wrongs they commit,thinking it absolves them of responsibility.Not very many people "own" their behavior.

God is alive and will judge all who reject him with eternal damnation. Thanks to Him, I know just where I will go when I take my last breath - into His loving arms! What a precious, comforting thought this is.

So which god is it? The Catholic one? The Southern Baptist one? The Muslim one? The Hebrew one? Is it Zeus? How about the Mormon one? Maybe it's the Jehovah's witness god.
