The core concept of modern conservative “Christian” (alt-Christianity), which has no relation to the teachings attributed to Jesus and is based entirely on the writings of the renegade “apostle” Paul, is that if you confess sins and repent, and accept Jesus as your “lord and savior,” you get saved.
Doesn’t matter how heinous your crimes against humanity, you profess Jesus as “lord and savior” and you’re in.
If not, you suffer the eternal torture of FIREBOARDING. If you thought the torture of WATERBOARDING for a few minutes for blowing up buildings and killing / maiming thousands of innocent civilians was a terrible crime against humanity, wait until you see the never ending torture of FIREBOARDING for all eternity … by a “loving god” — because “he loves us” and if we don’t love him back he’ll torture us forever, for the heinous crime of not joining the right team.
Doesn’t matter how much goodness and kindness and sunshine you spread in your lifetime, you are cast out into darkness. Well, except for the never-ending flames.
Hitler claimed to be a Christian and promised to make Germany a “Christian nation,” he’s in.
Anne Frank, a sweet, innocent little Jewish girl filled with goodness and sunshine, does not believe in Jesus and does not accept him as “lord and savior,” so she graduates from Hitler’s ovens to God’s.
Sorry if I don’t believe such a perverse, corrupt “religion.”
Fortunately, Jesus taught nothing of the sort. Jesus taught that those who do kindness and loving deeds for the least among us are the ones who would be saved. Faith helps motivate such goodness, but it is universal compassionate love expressed actively in deeds that saves us.
