Oh I completely understand and agree with that... I was just wondering if that was what Andreas meant.

...and our desire to please God is what prevents us from doing evil?

That and other factors like fear of the consequences (which is why the death penalty is so effective in dropping the crime rate).

Also, according to GOD, there are no degrees of sin. So a man who looks at internet pornography is just as guilty of adultery as man who actually cheats on his wife. A man who holds a grudge against another person is just as guilty as a murderer.

That's why we aren't able to work our way to salvation, because it would be impossible. All of the good deeds that we perform in this life are like filthy rags to GOD. Think of a rag that's been soaking in feces and imagine how repellant just the thought of that is. Well, that's what our lives are like to GOD when we try to work our way to Heaven under our own good works.

The good news about that is there is nothing bad enough you can do to be undeserving of salvation, because we can't be any more unworthy than we are now.

GOD loves everyone equally, despite our sin. So that means that GOD loves this man who beheaded his 5-year old sister just as much as He loves that 5-year old sister.

It's one of the hardest truths about Christianity.

Here's a quick quiz:
Did GOD love Adolf Hitler?
Did GOD love the Jews that were exterminated by the Nazis?
Does GOD love children who are the victims of child molestation?
Does GOD love the child molesters?
Does GOD love homosexuals?
Does GOD love the fundamentalist Christian who speaks out against homosexuality?
Does GOD love the white-supremacist who tortures and murders a black child?
Does GOD love the prostitute who allows men to have sex with her 2-year old daughter for money?
Does GOD love the Muslim extremist who flies a plane into a skyscraper, killing thousands?

If you believe that the answer to any of those questions should be "no," then you MUST also believe that Christianity is a lie and that the Bible is false. It's that simple.
