Oh? What ways of living are these?
Matthew 22:35-40 (King James Version)
Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Would you take James and Peter as having the right version? They are adding definition to what Romans 13 defines as being 'evil deeds', acts that will bring the sword of death, in the harshest sense of the phrase.
Religion will never be extinct, people will always believe in till such a time where 1984's government becomes a reality across the whole world.
