Subject: RE: BS: God's simple plan of salvation...
I fail to see any great merit in any religion which involves a bribe which promises a personal reward, not for being "good", but for blindly acclaiming the merits of the so-called "only true faith".
Jesus Christ was a wonderful person---by all accounts [and I don't disbelieve them..], but he Himself was heard to query "Why callest thou ME "good""? The better human being is the one who a good person for the sake of being just that---and far superior to those who practise "goodness" for the sake of a promised reward.
   We have two bright specimens leading Britain and the USA---Blair and Bush. They are reported as having "prayed together" [preyed?]. As Rab Burns once wrote---"--If such as he in Heav'n may be, then welcome, hail, Damnation!"
