Oh I see you have drank deeply from the cool-aid of religion. What value do you think random rants spewing religious words without any legitimate logical substance has to anyone that see's this has? It serves no value to anyone but you, and the only value it has for you is a rewarding sensation to your ego and your own self worth, a mild altruism. Jesus taught a brilliant trick of reasoning to identify what purpose a religious person is actually serving. There is a way that sounds right but in practice fails to produce the claimed value. To see the truth of a religious person or teaching pay no attention to what they say, rather study the fruit, or effect, that is produced by religious people and their teachings. You will know them by their fruit. Advice: consider the possibility that your beliefs could be entirely or partially false. Put the Bible down for at least one month and at the same time step back from any religious authority you have and use. Pray earnestly to the Creator as you presently understand Him, asking to know what is really true, ask that God himself be the source of information to confirm or deny your beliefs. Can you get real with God? You will get a better response if you apologize for letting a book, a religion, and/or religious leaders. Be willing to accept whatever truth God may give you in whatever way He wants to give it to you. Stop putting limitations on how you may receive knowledge and communication from your god. Minister, successful, for 9 years, advanced scholar for 20 yrs now. Most Christians do not really have the reality of the Creator in their life. Their God is ink and paper, not real thing. "But lord we did all these works in your name! Depart from me for I know you not." There is only one possible group of people Jesus was warning about, nobody does "works" in Jesus' name but Christians. I hope you can trade you religion in for the real thing. Most will never have the guts.
