It's not complicated. Do you understand "the gate"?
Oh please tell us what that might be Mr Foxwell..

LOL my bad. That is another confusing part as an "outsider". There are many people who identify themselves as Christians yet they have conflicting views on how to get to heaven.

It's pretty simple.

Seems to me, there is differing opinions as to what exactly is meant by that phrase

I find his actions contradictory to your comments.
Charlemagne? I'm not sure what God and Holy Spirit was guiding that evil sonofabitch, but I'll venture a guess and say it wasn't the same one I'm referring to.

Oops, shame on me for judging someone who lived in the eighth century. I ain't perfect, you know.

It's pretty simple.
So, are you saying one MUST be baptized in order to receive eternal life?

^ This is a classic example of how people who read the Bible mistranslate it...and the...drum-roll please, ram it down your throat.

I also like the "Jesus is God" "No he's not!" debate...

Jesus said many times in the Bible that he is less than God, that he is not God, and God also made the distinction between them as well. Just a bizarre debate for sure...

The Bible is man's word, man's struggle to find God in a time when they accepted raping women, killing babies, child sex slaves and more as "God's word."... It really couldn't be any more obvious.
