I agree totally with your comments regarding hypocritical behaviour. Interestingly, Jesus Christ agreed with that too. He said that not everyone who professes belief in him would be saved, only those doing the will of his father. Even if they claimed to have done wonderful things in his name, it would make no difference. Faith is essential, but without the right actions it is worthless. All of us are free moral agents. We can choose our destiny, and have the right to do so. Otherwise God would have created a race of robots! But we cannot ignore the consequences of our choices, both in the short term and eternally. The religions of the world have a lot to answer for, both "Christian" and others. The Bible indicates that they will answer to God for misrepresenting him. Love should be the dominant quality of a Christian (I can't speak for other religions) because the God they believe in IS love! How can they follow a God of love, and kill others? Jesus said that we should conquer evil with good.
