29 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm sure he's a very funny person and doesn't mind.
29 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: No. Thats why its on the Ten Commandments.
01 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1904: Well that's the good thing about religion - everybody has it's own private Form and can decide for himself what do belief and what not.
01 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1904: Yeah, the problem is that one leads to heaven and all the others lead to hell.
01 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1904: Says who?
01 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1904: God. The one who made everything. Oh! And Jesus who is also God.
03 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1905: Well that's not completely correct, basically Jesus is God's son.
What you say is very much old testament, an eye for an eye, seven plagues, Leviticus, the whole program. Jesus in the New Testament never says 'follow the ten commandments or you go to hell'. He says things like love your next one like yourself or the least of you will be the first to meet me in heaven.
So if anybody tells you it's only the commandments that count you should question his knowledge about Christian theology.
03 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1905: Matthew 11:20-24. Matthew 12:24-30. Matthew 19:3-11. Matthew 21:12-17. Matthew 21:18-22. Matthew 24:4-5 Mark 4:1-20. Mark 8:34-38.

In the Old Testament, there were two laws. They were the moral law (Ten Commandments) and Cereal Law (mostly to book of Leviticus). The Cereal Law was ment to distinguish that the Messiah would come from them, and the Moral Law was to tell the Jews how to live their life. When Jesus came he fulfilled the Cereal Law because the Messiah had come, but the Moral Law ( The Ten Commandments) still apply to us because they tell us how to live our lives. Jesus did say to love you enemies, but he also said no one can come to the Father except through me. How do we do that today? Jesus isn't here. Jesus set up only one Church to bring us to him, "18 So I now say to you: You are Peter and on this rock I will build my community. And the gates of the underworld can never overpower it.

19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven: whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."(MT 16:18-19)
Here Jesus established only one Curch to bring us to Jesus. And only one Church to teach all Truths. Therefore there is no salvation outside of this one true church. The only Christian church that came right after Pentecost was the Catholic Church.

Also Jesus didn't abolish the Ten Commandments, "17 'Do not imagine that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete them.18 In truth I tell you, till heaven and earth disappear, not one dot, not one little stroke, is to disappear from the Law until all its purpose is achieved.19 Therefore, anyone who infringes even one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be considered the least in the kingdom of Heaven; but the person who keeps them and teaches them will be considered great in the kingdom of Heaven.20 'For I tell you, if your uprightness does not surpass that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never get into the kingdom of Heaven.'" (MT 5:17-20)
03 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1905: Also read the book of revelation
