    To believe that religion and the bible is the same. Is to believe an automobile is an apple. Show me just 1 religion in the world that follows scripture. You can't, for not 1 exists. Why? Cause EVERY religions is a division of scripture to suit mans own wants, needs and desires. Normally for wealth, power and control. So if you don't grasp that the two are very separate. Then there is no use in going farther. But if you do grasp it. Then to you question. If 20 people sat in a room and actually read the bible and not TOLD what the bible says. Then you would get 20 people that are as close as 20 people that did a math problem of 5+5. Just as you can read a history book and so can I. And we will get the same conclusion. But now if a teacher tells us what the book says, without us actually reading it. Then our answers will never be the same. To your use of eye for an eye or turn the cheek. You have to read the bible to understand. For the eye for an eye is for God. That is His wrath. We are told NOT to be of wrath. In turn, turn the cheek. There are no contradictions in the bible. Only the confusion of man listening to other men instead of reading it themselves. (98% who claim they have read it, never have). Do you realize what a slave is? Do you think slaves are only those in shackles in ships or in the field? If you research. You realize a nurse, baby sitter and even my position as a minister. Are positions of being slaves. What is my job as a minister? To aid you, assist you, in anything you need. Is that not a slave? Do you see shackles on me? Do not think reality is the movies, you will always fail the quiz. What stories are hard to believe? Do you know the story or just the twisted lies of man telling you a story? Its like the guy down at the dock. He caught a 4' fish. But when he got home to the pub it was now a 11' fish. "no longer a christian". Please show me just 1 passage that says you need to be a christian. Or for that fact, of ANY religion. Cause actually it says to have no religion. That alone shows you that my figure of 98% have not read it is true. As look at all the religions today. God says to come to Him alone. The bible is easy to understand. For it is a book of lessons. Do this and get this. Do this and get that. Don't worry so much about the stories, the names, etc. The moral lessons, laws and items is the real lesson. And if you just sit and try to read it alone, you won't understand it. For there is only 1 that can teach it, the Spirit. Just ask Him to show you and teach you. And like kindergarten to senior year, you will go through the book. Everything is relevant, thats the key. Use of Strong's and Webster comes in handy as well to grasp what is being told. For it has been translated several times now. Walk away from a church, woohoo. Walk away from a religion (pat on back). Walk away from scripture and God (tsk tsk tsk).

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but number 16 is INCORRECT! Snopes is your friend. http://www.snopes.com/disney/films/finland.asp . Google "Donald Duck Finland" - guess what? The first five or so results at google.co.uk are all rebuttals from various sources.

    I quote my own words at this site: http://www.funtrivia.com/askft/Question66972.html "It was all to do with budget cuts back in the seventies - the bigwigs decided to discontinue subscribing the libraries in Helsinki to the Donald Duck comic in favour of sports and hobby magazines. Somebody in the papers decided to write an article about it and blow it all out of proportion: "Helsinki stops ordering Donald Duck comics." became "OMG! Finland bans Donald Duck!" ".

    Now don't you just feel foolish, when a simple Google search proves you wrong?
