If you don't count "He's a lying sack of shit who doesn't keep his promises", I can think of two. But I shall remain silent for the time being as to what those two are.

Simply because most "holy" books allegedly agree on a wide variety of things doesn't mean they're (all) necessarily any more truthful or accurate—as you seem to be inferring.

The Christian bible, the Quran, the Talmud, the Upanishads etc are all full of absolute bullshit, and talk about imaginary gods and spirits, and angels and devils, and heaven and hell. So yes; they're in agreement broadly speaking, but it's all neither here nor there in the real world.

And "salvation" is a Christian "gift" you can only receive? What's that mean in simple English?

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Too bad you never read the Bible.

James 2:14-26
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Would you like to add James 2 to our debate? Because you are misunderstanding what it says.

I'm told atheists on forums like TTA are bitter and angry. If you are not, your posts to me will be respectful, insightful and thoughtful. Prove me wrong by your adherence to decent behavior.
