Think you're "Christian?" You're doing it wrong!

Romans 2:13-17

"For not the hearers of the law are just, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness and their thoughts, meanwhile accusing or else excusing one another."

Probably one of the more beautiful and profound verses of the bible. It seems to mean that people may carry the law in their hearts, Heathens and Atheists alike, that in a way they poses a stronger sense of moral then believers do.  People with intrinsic moral values are a law unto themselves - the bible says it in black and white. So bearing this curse in mind, why are SO MANY fundies here defending the faith? The bible says you don't need god. This verse tries to make Christianity a more inclusive faith, while 10's of 1000's of sects use it as a means of divison. "if you're ___ you can't join our religion, and you can't go to heaven."  But of course, I'm expecting the regular cascade of contradictions that you'd expect of a book written by ancient desert dwelling goat herders, squatting in their animal skin tents looking at the starry sky and thinking they can concieve the answers to life, the universe, and everything.

Oh look - here's a contradiction already. Acts 10:34 "God is no respecter of persons or egos." Meaning god is impartial - so is it faith, or is acts that ultimately get you into heaven? God can't seem to make up his mind!


If God made us in his own image, then shouldn't we be invisible too?
