comment Did Jesus actually ever say “if you don't believe in me you go to Hell”?
@DavidStratton: but how do we know His context and intent? it seems very rarely is a statement in the Bible a direct interpretation like that...I'm having a really hard time believing this is what Jesus meant...for example, I truly believe God would not send a Buddhist monk that devoted his life to the expression of God he was given, to hell, that just can't be because God is also fair and God is Love.

@fredsbend: "but only the one who does the will of my Father" geez, that seems like it excludes most Christians....

@AffableGeek: "but choose not to glorify Him as God" - well, not really, there are Gay Christians who glorify God...who are pastors too.

comment Why is it so much easier to sin than follow Jesus?
@2pietjuh2: It does not appear from my understanding for Jesus that watching a movie or funny things are a sin....(everything in balance. In other religions I see complete devotion to their books etc. and still see darkness.)

@Affable Geek: the timing of this question and your experience gives it much weight, thank you. I agree it produces dependence on the Spirit, but I struggle to see how it produces Hope...
