    That's not a bigoted statement, and it's open to interpretation. Christ is God, and God can take many forms to different people who are religious.

    I felt it important not to single any one religion out in this discussion. You must not feel the same.

    In order for it not to be a bigoted statement, all Jews and Muslims would have to be saved.

    So if I believed Christ never existed, I could be a Christian and still be saved?

    Met a lot of religious people who claimed opendmindedness. They're never so open minded when you start opening up about your opposing beliefs. Then you start realizing they're getting a lot colder towards you.

    How can a person who believes and is constantly told that you burn in hell for thinking the wrong things, how can that person ever truly be non-discriminatory? I mean to be religious you basically have to be discriminatory or you aren't truly following your religion.

    And Hindus, Buddhist, Sikhs, etc. I'll let Christians argue over their interpretation of this decree, but remember that Buddha says that his brand of salvation can only be achieved by following his path. Is that bigoted? I think its a stretch.

    You wouldn't be saved in the Christian way, since you wouldn't be Christian. Most Christians are pretty open with allowing other religions to save people, too. People who are not religious don't have to worry about it.

    Given the OP is talking about Christians specifically? No. I feel it wasn't important since the title wasn't about the religious.

    Did you just assume I believed that all Muslims were murderers and all Jews were greedy misers? Was that the point? I'm a conservative Christian, so I must be a bigot right?

    No, they're people of religious faith.

    Funny. I've met lots of non religious people who are the same way.
