Neither Could Jesus

You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?   Jesus spent a good deal of his time berating religious people, and religion nailed Him to the cross.  Religious people killed him then, and they would probably kill him again.

The Lord has surely opened your eyes, my friend....

Curious Sgt. It's easy to misunderstand people on the internet. You've missed the point of what I'm saying. I'm not talking about sinners saved by grace. I'm not talking about the ones who feed the hungry, clothe the naked, comfort the sick, look after the needs of the aged widow, visit people in prison , and so on. I'm talking about annihilated cultures, spears dripping with blood, torture, judgment, picking and choosing which parts of the scriptures that best suit their interest and disregarding others, or using the scriptures to lord it over, to oppress, and to control.or simply to make money. I could go on, but I hope you see what I'm saying.

Oh, the Pharisees and Sadducee walked the walk, but they didn't have a bit of love within them. They were followers of the letter of the law. I admire those who by their actions are a living witness.<br />
Religion has been killing Christians from the time of Christ till now.<br />
I'm talking about Excessive or affected piety.

A philosophical question then. Is a life of fear worse than an early death? I suppose it would depend on the depth and intensity of the fear.

religious people are no less than terrorist, they instill fear in the minds of believers by using the hell and heaven concept,and every SOB his own bloody interpretation of what written in those damn books.

Religious people had Him killed is what I should say. The epistle of James says that real religion is keeping your mouth shut and letting your actions speak for you.
