One need only look at how much Christianity changes every few hundred years to realize that if religion acutally survives the expansion of the human race out into the galaxy, it will be so changed as to hardly be recognizable as religion at all.

The faith has not change - the screwed-up people who claim to be Christians have evolved into nut cases.
Christ said, blessed are the poor. Modern Christians favor tax breaks for the rich.
No they don't - at least I don't.
Christ said, turn the other cheek. Modern Christians teach hate and favor a war that involves rape, murder, and torture.
Sorry - you're wrong again. I do not support war, rape, murder or torture.
Christ said, judge not lest ye be judged. Modern Christians do little else but judge other people.
Speaking out against wrong-doing is not 'judging.' It's speaking out - just like you have done. You're judging Christians.
Christ said, pray silently, or you're a hypocrite. Modern Christians are in favor of public prayer in the schools.
I do not support public prayer in schools - although I do not support anyone who says I cannot pray in school. There is a difference. I have rights too.
On the other hand, modern Christians rave about sex, birth control, "dirty" words, and abortion, subjects on which Christ said absolutely nothing.
I seem to recall some scripture regarding some of those - I'm curious and will check it out
Yeah, I know, there are a lot of good, quiet Christians out there, but you never see them on tv or talk radio.
