About meI'm attempting to reform Christianity, in particular American evagelicalism, by asking the simple question "What does the Bible _really_ say about salvation and the final Judgment?"
For example, believe it or not, there is not a single description of the Judgment (where the final Judgment is clearly in view) that matches anything like what most people consider the basic message of Christianity.

Furthermore, the prophets of the Old Testament that describe the purpose, role, and need for a savior do not ascribe to that Savior the purposes modern Christians paste onto Christ.
