Is it interesting that you have no problems excusing or cutting yourself some slacks as a backslider ot former backslider but you are so unwilling to give the benefit of the doubt to someone who embraced the Christian faith as an adult. If I should ask you, which is worse: a backslider - who having met the Lord Jesus and his death on the cross, chose to walk away frm him and to deny him, in other words, chose to become an infidel and an enemy of God?

OR someone who did not know Him at all and later when he met him, embraced him? me thinks the former is worse than the later.

The sense of unbelievable narrow-mindedness among many american self-acclaimed Christians make you wonder whether Jesus was born in Houston or Colorado. Many of us feel that Christianinity is an inherited faith that we have to determine who comes in and does not. I have bad news for you friends, God has no favorites. Jesus died for all men and women, for both Jews and Gentiles, Muslims and Church goers alike. If you think that because you are American, you must be a more credible Christian, you are in for a rude shock when you get to the Pearly Gates. Jesus shocked the Jews with these words: Many shall come from the east and west and sit with the son of man in his kingdom while the sons of the kingdom shall be cast out. In political terms, you can claim anything you want. But in truth, you have no prerogative in these matters.
