Not to those who lived in Africa, which is believed by many scientists to be "the cradle of humankind."
I see your point

But to my knowledge, Africa did not have a system of paved roads and other technologies which made spreading the word easier.

Furthermore, while belief in a "high god" is not universal, it is found in many parts of Africa and numerous other areas of the world.[10]

Indo-European religion

Two examples of monolatrism developing from polytheism are the Aten cult in the reign of the Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten, as well as the rise of Marduk from the tutelary of Babylon to the claim of universal supremacy.

In Zoroastrianism, Ahura Mazda appears as a supreme and transcendental deity. Depending on the date of Zoroaster (usually placed in the early Iron Age), this may be one of the earliest documented instances of the emergence of monism in an Indo-European religion.

So it's not "saved by faith alone", then.

Yes, it is by faith alone...but one who believes in Jesus, knows that He is of honorable character.
How can one say that they 'believe' in something, while living in disregard for that thing?

Very easily. It happens all the time. You say you "believe in Jesus", yet you don't believe He said what He meant and meant what He said each and every time He made a statement.

Then it is only fair that a Muslim shall also be saved by faith alone in the divinity of Mohammed and in the one and only Allah ... who favors only Muslims.

Well, thanks for explaining. I do agree that most Christians have the same high opinion of their selves in the idea that they are saved from what tarnishes other, and that is what I have "against" religion.
If you think I have a "high opinion" of myself, then you are wrong. I've a very humble person for the most part.

But, then again, its only an opinion and doesn't mean diddley.

My guess is, the hairy ones that had all they could do to survive every-day life, didn't pave any roads ... although they might have perceived that they were theologians who knew what the gods punished and what the gods rewarded.

Did you stop sinning after you professed your faith in Jesus (or the bible, not sure anymore with you folks)?

Am I misinterpretting?
A contrary account, with much missing in the Gospel of Judas, to the Bible, doesn't seem to be very trustworthy.
Since most people "sense" something greater than themselves(even if in denial), no secret is held by any person, or group.
Ah yes, what is "trustworthy"....and what is not.

Who get's to determine what I get to believe? You? Men of 2000 years ago? Men of 1700+ years ago?

Who?

8God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. 10For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

That was the wordiest dodge I've read in some time.
If you can't establish the premise of your arguments, just say "I can't" or "I won't".
And your answer is exactly what most Catholics do - divert.

I suggest that if some Catholic bozo said that a man named Jesus said anything whatsoever ... chances are better than not that the bozo was lying.

The HS must not be guiding you, you haven't posted anything with
substance to show you are.

If a creator just happens to exist, I will want an explanation from him of why non-human forms of life were created to suffer.

I suggest the creator will hang his "invisible" head in shame! If he doesn't ... he should.

Tongue-in-cheek

As I play out in my garden, I can't help but notice the angle-worms that suffer and die because I disrupted their lives in order to grow the things that please my lusts to survive.

It truly is a dog-eat-dog world.

They probably did think they knew. Isn't it human nature to try to find answers?

I suggest that it was human lust for survival that created religion.

It's human nature to want more and more comforts.

Religion to the greedy signifies that more life and better life is yet to come ... but only for those deserving OF the comforts ... which of course always reverts back to the devout believers who place the utmost faith in their own dogmas.

Religion is all about human greed.

Matthew 16
26 For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what exchange shall a man give for his soul?

27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels: and then will he render to every man according to his works.

Romans 2
6 (God) Who will render to every man according to his works.

7 To them indeed, who according to patience in good work, seek glory and honour and incorruption, eternal life:

8 But to them that are contentious, and who obey not the truth, but give credit to iniquity, wrath and indignation.

9 Tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man that worketh evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Greek.

10 But glory, and honour, and peace to every one that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

He was a man who promised Paradise to those who put complete faith in his words.

Words are all that are NEEDED by fools who place faith in words.

The Christians killed each other for centuries over believing they owned the words that gave them truth.

You will see the lies in your own religion, when you stop choosing to be blinded by them.
