My very short answer:

  1. Paul warned the followers of Christ that willfully sin after coming to the knowledge of the Gospel message could not be restored again to repentance. They will be punished harder than those who never knew Christ.
  2. Jesus was declared the Son of God on the day of his baptism. God said to him “Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee”.
  3. “Life insurance” really doesn’t insure you but your relatives. A true “Life insurance” is following The Way and the two are not in conflict with each other.
  4. The bible does not explicitly say when you will reap what you have sowed. But other events documented in the bible suggest it could happen in anytime.
  5. The original word of Hell in Greek is Gehenna, which used to be a real fire pit for burning bodies. Jesus used this word as a metaphor for annihilation. This world is not to be confused with another word Sheol (Hades in Greek) which means “grave”.

You probably haven't heard of it because it didn't make it to the canon 17 centuries ago.

Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All.

What a scene. The same people who died to save the Pope 500 years ago is now doing God's work once more, this time to arrest the Pope.

Adoniram Judson, a Baptist missionary, gave an account on how this “spiritual weapon” fared for him:

Judson, the famous Baptist missionary in Burmah, confesses, in his Journal, the difficulties to which he was often driven by them. Speaking of a certain Ooyan, he remarks that his strong mind was capable of grasping the most difficult subjects. "His words," he remarks, "are as smooth as oil, as sweet as honey, and as sharp as razors; his mode of reasoning is soft, insinuating, and acute; and so adroitly does he act his part, that I with the strength of truth, was scarcely able to keep him down."

They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. (Mark 2:17)

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 7:21)

He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. (John 14:12)

If ye love me, keep my commandments. (John 14:15)

And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? (Luke 6:46)

"There are no accidents -- and you have been predestined into the life you are living based upon your past in conjunction with the requirements that must be met in order to embrace your future destiny. It is therefore paramount to ask the question: What are you presently accomplishing with your gift of life?

If you are a religious person and go to church, then you must ask yourself the question: If it is the Hand of God that has brought you into the church, does it mean anything that you are not there on your own accord, but of God's direct influence?

If you are a non-believer, and like many modern non-believers today, you see yourself as being enlightened, and you feel that you are intellectually superior to the believer because you are able to recognize the many flaws in church doctrine -- unless you recognize that it is the Hand of God that has enabled you to see these flaws, your limited knowledge is meaningless.

The question that you must ask yourself is this: Does it mean anything that you possess this insight to see either the merits or the fallacies of modern religious doctrine, only because God wanted you to see certain facts more clearly than the other person? Moreover, in our very limited understanding of Creation, doesn’t each person’s individual perception also contain a germ of truth?" – Allan Cronshaw
