I would never attack a man of God....or his faith. I am in a battle with anything that is extra-divine. I will fight by word or sword... but I'd rather fight by act and presence. If you think that my words are hurtful and seem to be directed at you...I love you, and the fact that you love my father...Fighting on Jesus' flank is a thankless--- charge the machine-gun type of fight...but I find great satisfaction in it...

One last thought...we in America like to think that when we vote...we are performing a God given sacred duty...especially to those that died to give us that right so they would not have died in vain...well, I vote every day for Jehovah's will and wish for humanity, and for his son Jesus... and that his sacrifice will not have been in vain.

This is what happens when the Spirit of God lives inside you. He will guide you into all truth and your eyes will be opened. Stay close to Jesus, ericarn.

I think this is good advise,

Luke 10:25-37

There was a scholar of the law who stood up to test Jesus and said,
“Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
Jesus said to him, “What is written in the law?
How do you read it?”
He said in reply,
“You shall love the Lord, your God,
with all your heart,
with all your being,
with all your strength,
and with all your mind,
and your neighbor as yourself.”
He replied to him, “You have answered correctly;
do this and you will live.”

But because he wished to justify himself, he said to Jesus,
“And who is my neighbor?”
Jesus replied,
“A man fell victim to robbers
as he went down from Jerusalem to Jericho.
They stripped and beat him and went off leaving him half-dead.
A priest happened to be going down that road,
but when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side.
Likewise a Levite came to the place,
and when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side.
But a Samaritan traveler who came upon him
was moved with compassion at the sight.
He approached the victim,
poured oil and wine over his wounds and bandaged them.
Then he lifted him up on his own animal,
took him to an inn, and cared for him.
The next day he took out two silver coins
and gave them to the innkeeper with the instruction,
‘Take care of him.
If you spend more than what I have given you,
I shall repay you on my way back.’
Which of these three, in your opinion,
was neighbor to the robbers’ victim?”
He answered, “The one who treated him with mercy.”
Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

I agree. It's not about appearing religious on the outside and yet not actually reflecting God's love. It's about a relationship with Jesus Christ. The bible says that many have the appearance of being holy but yet on the inside are like dead bones.

I have been graced in ways that are more than lucky. Coming from a very lower income family with no hopes of ever owning my own home much less than having a rental property. We give 20% to Charity every month even in the bad months-

That is great like Jesus' message here.

Luke 12:13-21

Someone in the crowd said to Jesus,
“Teacher, tell my brother to share the inheritance with me.”
He replied to him,
“Friend, who appointed me as your judge and arbitrator?”
Then he said to the crowd,
“Take care to guard against all greed,
for though one may be rich,
one’s life does not consist of possessions.”

Then he told them a parable.
“There was a rich man whose land produced a bountiful harvest.
He asked himself, ‘What shall I do,
for I do not have space to store my harvest?’
And he said, ‘This is what I shall do:
I shall tear down my barns and build larger ones.
There I shall store all my grain and other goods
and I shall say to myself, “Now as for you,
you have so many good things stored up for many years,
rest, eat, drink, be merry!”’
But God said to him,
‘You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you;
and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?’
Thus will it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself
but is not rich in what matters to God.”

Congrats and glory to God. One question though. What if one day you lost it all? Would you still love God with everything in you? Would you still live your life for him?

How can I become a Christian?

By simply realizing that you are a sinner in need of a savior, which will cause you to cry out to God for his saving grace.
