Fundy salvation doctrine creates modern-day Assassin

Christian Fundies are fond of saying that they're not perfect, just saved. It turns out that fitness club shooter George Sodini took this to the logical extreme - that being "saved" is a license to commit any sin or crime:

"Maybe soon, I will see God and Jesus. At least that is what I was told. Eternal life does NOT depend on works. If it did, we will all be in hell. Christ paid for EVERY sin, so how can I or you be judged BY GOD for a sin when the penalty was ALREADY paid. People judge but that does not matter. I was reading the Bible and The Integrity of God beginning yesterday, because soon I will see them.

The fact that this notion starkly contradicts Christ's admonitions contained in the parable of the Good Samaritan never seems to register with many people, or they fall for the Fundy brainwashing that we are so evil that there is nothing we can do to compensate for it, and only Christ's super-magic can save us from "eternal damnation."

WHO would have wanted us to believe that we can live a life of evil, and mumble a few words to get off Scott free? The Bible is hardly the inerrant word of God as it so conveniently claims it is. As exposed in From Babylon to Jerusalem: The Genesis of the Old Testament, the Old Testament, at least, has been thoroughly corrupted from the get-go by the focus of evil through the ages: the Cult of Isis, i.e. Babylon the Great.
