Is this in the Bible?
I remember hearing on the show that in the Bible it spelled out that you could pretty much sin, rape, murder, whatever but as long as you accept JC into your heart you get a free ticket to heaven.
I explained what'd I'd heard to a friend, when a very rude second "friend" swooped in, told me was I stupid, ignorant, blah blah, he'd gone to Catholic school, Purgatory was this and that..blah blah.
He was all "bring in a quote where it says that" and then proceeded to tell me I must be mistaken with Hitler's autobiography (ha..ha..). His dumb friends in serious need of a testosterone boost got a laugh out of that one.
Ironically, he is an atheist.
Or is that not ironic? Hard to tell.
So who is right?
*Our world is far more complex than the rigid structure we want to assign to it, and we will probably never fully understand it.*
"Those believers who are sophisticated enough to understand the paradox have found exciting ways to bend logic into pretzel shapes in order to defend the indefensible." - Hamby
