5. "Apparently the Bible is a warning to any who might follow in the footsteps of Jesus."
You say that...but, the message of the New Testament is that "You DO GOOD for your FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS...KNOWING...that in the end most will BETRAY YOU. But, YOUR to try to DO GOOD because the REWARD is not HERE ON EARTH...but in the Afterlife...that your LEGACY will stand.

That's what I believe. But, I don't ask anyone else to believe that.

I feel if you are born to try to CARE about your fellow beings.... you will always try to do that throughout your life. And, that you will be villified and trashed...will be what you deal with.

But, to say YOU what some have to do to live up to their beliefs that we MUST MAKE this WORLD a Better Place for THOSE WHO COME AFTER US!

Doesn't mean we have to live the life of a Saint...but that we should try not to become "SINNERS" (like those on Wall Street and the MIC and WORLD ECONOMIC DOMINANCE and GENETICALLY MODIFIED SEED Companies along with MEDIA WHORE CRAP and the REST we are dealing with.
