I'm not so worried about what other Christians think about me, what truly matters is what Jesus Christ thinks of me on Judgement Day. Have I lived the way he taught in the New Testament? That is what counts.

Let me qualify my last statment, I hit Send before I finished my thoughts. It matters how I live Jesus Christ's teachings, that is how I will be judged. I do believe that his gospel has been restored in these latter days, that we have the fullness. I will seek truth and His teachings. I will let Him be my judge.

If by "lived the way he taught" you include subjecting your thinking and beliefs to His word, the Bible, I couldn't agree more!! And that puts the whole matter of spirituality on such an objective plane, just as Jesus Himself says: judge by fruits.

This is how you know that no one can be comfortable in the Mormon cult, and walk with Jesus, at the same time. They call in opposite directions. You can read it in black and white, no indigestion or anything. Praise Him for His wisdom, truth and goodness!

UG, that sounds an awful lot like it depends on WHAT you are DOING will determine your fate, instead of what HE has ALREADY done.



NIV John 4:37-39
 37.  Thus the saying `One sows and another reaps' is true.
 38.  I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor."
 39.  Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me everything I ever did."
 
NIV John 5:39-40
 39.  You diligently study  the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me,
 40.  yet you refuse to come to me to have life.
 
NIV John 6:27-29
 27.  Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval."
 28.  Then they asked him, "What must we do to do the works God requires?"
 29.  Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent." (Simple!)
