    So then, what is the way people are measured for either living a "good life" or a "bad life"? What if i lived a life that was exactly in the middle? Where would I go?

    Edit: Jews used to be the only Christians. It wasn't until after Christ that the real divergence came. Islam came when Ishmael, Abraham's (who was a Jew) son was born. Buddha lived about 566-480 B.C. and we know the Jews existed before that.

    What if their gods had different forms of righteousness? Such as the Hindus were told to kill the Buddhists or vice versa. Wouldn't this mean God had either lied to one side or made a mistake?

    What about all the Christians who were told to convert and/or kill the entire world? (the crusades)
    what about the Catholics and Protestants in Ireland today who were told to kill each other?

    I guarantee you the Hindus don't believe that Christ ascended from the dead and payed for their sins. [/QUOTE]

    of course they dont! why should they?? they arent Christians!
    Do you believe what Vishnu says? why should you?
    why should Hindus believe anything at all about Christianity when they arent Christians?? im really losing your logic here..

    1) they were not told to kill the eintire world. they were told to preach and try to convert the world to christianity

    2) i dont believe they are true christians

    3) God is perfect. he never made a mistake. God does not lie,a nd never has, AND never will!

    These religions have existed for hundreds of years, but only one has stood the test of time. Christianity[/QUOTE]

    oh come on, you know better than that!
    Islam is just as old as Christianity.
    Judiasm, Hinduism and Bhuddism are older.
    all religions are still going strong!
    how can you possibly say "only one" has stood the test of time?? that makes no sense.[/QUOTE]
    Christianity has been around since the begining of time.
    Have you ever heard the story of cane and Abel? one killed the other. the son of the one who killed the other(bad brother) went to live in another land, and his decendents (SP?) became muslim. the good brother went to where israel is today, and his decendents (sp?) became jewish. the two races have been fighting since. after this, all of the other religions came around.
    Christianity CAME BEFORE THE OTHERS! It has been around since adam and eve. the others have not.

    opps..my mistake, I thought we were talking about literal history. sorry..

    (thats not meant as any kind of "slam" or sarcasm..I was simply talking about factual history..I didnt realise that some also choose to not believe in literal history, and instead believe in Biblical history..thats fine..our histories are not the same, therefore we cant really discuss human history at all..not a problem.)

    I believe that too!! anyone who claims God ever told them to kill someone else, was not really talking to God!

    My question rephrased is what is the standard for the good life? We know Hitler thought that he was doing a 'good' thing for the world by exterminating the Jews, so why isn't he going to heaven?
