    Re: Is "Born Again" Chrisitianity a Cult?

    Yes people do sin but only upon the ACT of sinning from volition to the soul that cannot be done before an age of accountability. Original Sin is a false teaching as Jesus taught to Mary of Magdala. But yes everyone sins at some point its a flaw in the human condition save for the Saviour of course.

    And the text is a Gnostic Gospel that doesn't mean its wrong or evil. In that tradition the faith is drawn deeply into the mystical what you might call Pentacostal Christianity in many aspects. Some not of course but the respect for the Gifts of the Spirit were real in fact visions were an important direction to the truth.

    As for Paul I believe in truth he was chosen by God and yes was driven by the Holy Spirit to give the faith to the Gentiles. But I must point out according to the Gospel of Mary fragments Jesus taught the faith from within is vital to find God. Crafting laws and teachings that went beyond what Jesus taught was deemed dangerous. I tend as a Christian to rely on the life and teaching of Jesus, the other books are secondary sources to that and some like the Gospel of Mary give additional insights. Ultimately in the tools of fasting, prayer and contemplation in Jesus to grant the insights needed.

    So you believe that, although Paul's writings are inspired by the Holy Spirit as are, say, the Gospel of John, Matthew, Luke and Mark, you believe that Paul's writings are less inspired?

    If the Holy Spirit inspired all scriptures, then how is Paul's writings of less inspiration?


    You mentioned about the age of accountability.

    So if someone reaches that age at, say, 3 years of age - and at that point, not only have they sinned, but they recognized that they need to deal with that sin...


    ...what is the minimum belief of faith to have a right standing with God? What does a person have to believe by faith, with a minimum amount of information, to be saved from the wrath, power and ultimately the presence of sin?

    For lack of a better way to put it...what does a person have to do to go to heaven?

    im kind of confused about that, if a baby dies when he is born or while still in the womb then are they forever dammed to hell?
