Quite right on a few points. The lack of grace-orientation on the part of so many "Christian" organizations - b.s. such as eternal life can be "earned" through good works of humankind - warm and fuzzy congregations, deviod of Biblical truth, therefore clarity. It is the reason Islam has a foothold in this country, and others.

"Christianity" has been turned into a "this for that" mentality. The Bible does not contain that, it is something completely outside the Truth of the Word. But many fall for it, as they do the mis-translation of "treat others as you would like to be treated". By this implication, all you have to do to is show good faith, and that will be returned to you. Asinine. But that is what's being taught. Correct translation - treat others as GOD treats you. With justice.

Too many are adopting the warm-and-fuzzy humanistic ideal of what they imagine God is, without bothering to STUDY the Word. Ergo Islam invades.

Just remember, M. Tovey, "Greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world". Stick to the Truth of the Word, as it pertains to you, and God will do the rest.

I'm quite eager to see it, in fact.
