Christianity and the Ego

My understanding of the teachings of Jesus is that he encouraged people to believe and act for the love of God.  Their own salvation was not so much a goal but a reward.


Today's Rapturists seem to have turned that around: They have made the reward their goal; love of God isn't important to them for its own sake, but because it brings them salvation.
It becomes an ego thing, not a love thing.


I know: I am only going to attract trolls by this--but I couldn't help writing it after listening to Air America yesterday morning, when they interviewed one of the guys who has written that "left behind" series.


So I'll leave it at that!
