They would be the two horns of beast, with two horns like a lamb, Constantine, the institutor of the Roman Church, who built his Roman church on the foundation of Peter and Paul. To have Constantine's mark, is to drink from the cup of God's wrath during the period of the "awesome day of the LORD" (Revelation 14:10). At that time, there would probably be no gas for your red convertible, and the electronics would probably be fried. If kept in underground storage, it might be nice to look at, but you will probably have to push it where ever you wanted to take it. God's house is built using justice and righteousness. Paul's gospel of grace, is a house built around the "big lie", whereas you "surely shall not die", just believe in what I say.
You're welcome to try to "work" your way into heaven. It's done frequently by fundamentalists who think if they avoid "sin" (always sins that they don't have, of course), they will be in God's favor.

As for me and my house, we have no good works to rely upon. We rely upon Jesus and His Grace.

I am convinced they do not know what agape love means or why it is what God wants from us. They seem to think God wants to be ego-stroked (or as they say on the street, brown-nosed).

How difficult is it for god to have a favorite when it regrets creating them in the first place?

Genesis 6:6 King James Version (KJV)

6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

Not hard at all. But would you really want to be singled out for attention by a god like that? Never know what he will do to you if you happen to fall out of favor with him, which you surely will. You’re only human after all.

I prefer my "mission trips" closer to home where there are millions in need of food, shelter, clothing and education. Come on out to Detroit for a real experience serving the poor and marginalized.

Questions the thinking mind will always ask.

We do local missions also, but since you posted a picture of a starving Afrcan child, I thought maybe you were ready to go to foriegn lands.
