100% effective? Really? A little biased maybe?<quoted text>
Gods R Delusions
As usual, I am not going to be a conventional Christian on this subject....
First off, God did not create the Church on this earth to save humanity. That work went to Jesus.
His effect on humanity has been far-reaching, even transcending cultural boundaries into peoples by way of virtue, and not direct "assimilation".
As a general rule, I would way Jesus was 100% effective in what he did, but people accept according to their understanding only a part of what he did....
OK, Jesus was 100% successful in making sure you had a good chance to experience the fullness of faith and amazing salvation.
But what about the other 90% of humanity who did NOT have the same cultural benefits as yourself? Somehow, you are that special?
I wouldn't consider 5-10% a success, yet alone a 100% success.
The only way I can see to that is to assume that one's self counts far more in God's eyes, far more than the vast majority of other humans.
Do you believe you are lucky to be raised in the correct faith, or pre-favored by God?
