Do you believe a God exists? posted 14 March 2006 in Philosophy DiscussionDo you believe a God exists? by Edge of Certainty, Subdidact

Jeez, I just can't stay away from this forum...it's the thread that never dies!! anyway, I keep seeing this reoccuring idea here that being a "good person" has somthing to do with being a Christian....not true...in it's purest form, Christianity should have nothing to do with being a good person. It's simply the belief that there is a God and he had a son...so and a so forth...but whether or not you're a good person has nothing to do with whether or not you get into heaven, according to the Bible anyway. It's simply believing that Jesus is God's son and he died for us so we could live. That's it...I think the ten commandments are a good suggestion, but you can't get into heaven by good acts. I think a lot of Christians fail to realize this as well, and so maybe that's why this idea of if you be good, you'll go to heaven keeps showing up view post
