Nothing we do for ourselves is going to matter in eternity. As for popular worldly opinions...well lets just say most contradict God's Word. The Bible says "Enter through the narrow gate, for the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction, and many go through it. But narrow is the gate and small the road that leads to life and few find it." Matt: 7:13-14.... Knowing things about God does not automatically make you a Christian. It's about having faith in God's Son Jesus and trusting HIS sacrifice on the cross to pay your sin debt completely. It's about following God by praying & seeking HIS direction and then moving forward according to what HE directs. It's about spending time reading HIS Word and learning to listen to his Holy Spirit speak directly to your heart. Huge difference between this and just knowing some info. about the Bible.
