What is this topic about a TNA wrestler doing in the WWE section? Moved.

Also kudos to Taryn for trying to be a good person. But I'm more inclined to think like Bort. A lot of people who proclaim things like this don't actually make any attempt to be better people. They just expect to be forgiven by "god" for accepting "Jesus". Kurt Angle being a prime example. Rather than seek help for his many substance abuse issues, he has "found god" and just keeps getting into trouble. It takes away from the good that I am sure organized religion is for a lot of people. Painting a bad picture.

TLDR: Don't be a good person because you expect some reward in the afterlife. Be a good person because it is the right thing to be.

I put it there because I only remembered her being in the WWE. lol

And I agree. Your beliefs should make you a better person, not a bitter person. If they don't make you better, then you need to reevaluate what it is you believe in and why.
