Mark 1:15

(15) and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the GOSPEL."

It does not say believe in a religion, or an organization, it says IN THE GOSPEL.

What's being said about you behind your back today? The Full Moon turns your fire flashes into major projectiles. Your patience may be short at the moment, but memory is long. Although no one makes citizen's arrests any more, you might just be foolish enough to try and when your reputation is on the line, you aren't about to walk away from a fight. Protecting yourself is more important than getting in the first jab.

True Karen..and the gospels are the new COVENANT [TESTAMENT] mediated by Christ Jesus...

As Jesus says " As the Father tells him what to say ..he speaks."

Please note...fellow here recommends three books to replace ONE BOOK the holy Scriptures

You have to ask the question , why do people need three books to explain one book?

And the answer is the ONE BOOK is inspired , and the other three books are not, though they do use material from the ONE BOOK to legitimize their writings of their books ...

Read the bible and learn what it really says. NO WHERE DOES IT SAY you MUST BE A JEHOVAH'S WITNESS OR BELONG TO ANY RELIGION TO BE SAVED. NO WHERE. But in these books which are man made, written by MEN who are not the Lord, you may see those words, Be a Jehovah's witness, or belong to the organization Jehovah hand picked to be saved. If it was that important to be of a certain religion or belong to any organization he hand picked, he would have made that clear in the bible, The word organization is no where in the bible, NOT ONCE. We are to come to the Lord, Jesus Christ, there is no other way, no other truth, no other life. There is no other name under the heavens by which we can be saved, that means the name of Jehovah's Witnesses cannot save you.

This sums it up
For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.1CORINTH 3:11
The WTO cannot do it no religion can the foundation is Christ period we either belong to Him and he is our ark or we have no ark and we have no hope .

So very true Pat, and to the one who says I repeat the same thing over and over, well sometimes you have to before someone can really understand that NO RELIGION OR ORGANIZATION WILL OR CAN SAVE YOU.

Jesus is our salvation.

All religion leads to war, corruption and terrorism. That is why it is most important for mankind to abandon it. Science will be our hope and our savior. The science that heals us when we are sick, heats our homes when we are cold, and provides us with jobs and an economy. Science is the only true search for the origins of man and for man's place in the future. Science is not a religion but science is something much better; science is the truth. The path to true enlightenment are science and Atheism. Common sense, cooperation between nations and science will be our strengths into the future. Men will lose the security blanket of religion; it was too light in a cold universe. We need the heavy parka of science.

Science is your religion.

And (for the record) science is responsible for more death and bloodshed than any other religion.

Science gave us the weapons of mass murder that have caused more deaths in the last 100 years than all the previous wars in history.

Advice from the great beyond:

Friends make wonderful company after hours, but you will also be socializing at work, or just pouring oil on troubled waters. This isn't a day to attempt anything too serious or too routine. Charm the boss into letting you do less. You are intrigued by ideas that are different; companions respect your questing mind. Such ideas are not always popular, but they certainly stimulate discussion.

Very true! True believers will have trouble with this.This reveals that they believe in something that is not real.Do not hate them. They are to be pitied.
