Wow...this topic seems to have started a spitting contest about who is the better person.....well I guess that is ok but it cant be proved or dis-proved by anyone....except god ...if you believe??? am I wrong...each of us has a set of morals, if you will, that guides us...mine might differ from yours....
In a purley religious view. based,on what I understand, then you can try...but will fail...but all you got to do is try and be honest about it...then ask for forgiveness and all will be well...long as you believe...Even if you do terrible things and know they are wrong...ask for forgiveness, and mean it...wish you could change it and ask for forgiveness and it will be granted...
Seems like a good deal....a free pass even....I can always ask for forgiveness later...right??

So then you three: is it reasonable to live according to Christ or not? Why?

Is it reasonable for who? I would say it only applies to Christians because the rest of the world will tell you no its not or ask you who cares. Now some missionaries come closer than most. But most Christians choose a different path and choose not to live the way Jesus wanted word for word, they pick and choose what they feel is relevant. That in-itself answers your question. Preacher at my dads church makes over 100k....is that living like Jesus wanted??
