I detest religion. It has caused multiple and tragic wars throughout history. It comes in second, after atheistic communism which is responsible for more than 100 million deaths. I'm pleased to say that I don't have a religious bone in my body. I don't believe that anyone can obtain eternal life by being religious, or by doing religious works (what are often called "good works"). I am a sinner, saved from damnation by the grace and mercy of God, and I am proud to be called a "Christian" because I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I believe that eternal life is a free gift of God that comes through sincere repentance towards the God we have offended and trust alone in the Savior, as taught by the Scriptures.
