When did just believing in God stop being enough? Now it's not THAT you believe it's WHAT you believe and HOW you worship. There's so many rules and if you don't follow the right ones you're hell bound.

For me I try not forget the bigger message that Jesus tried to teach and that's to have love and compassion for everyone. You can't let the rules get in the way of trying to love one another and care for the poor. I'm reading a really good book right now called the A Year of Living Biblically by AJ Jacobs. It's written by an man raised in a secular Jewish home but considers himself an Agnostic. He wanted to understand more about religion and faith. He is trying to live out the bible literally for a year. I'm not even half way trough the story yet, but its been really interesting reading about his efforts to live as close to the word of the Bible as possible.

The reformation caused this confusion. For they taught faith alone. But when you look deeper it's not just faith only, for faith without works is dead as is works without faith. As others have said even the Devil believes in God and Christ.
