Genuine question for Christians

The logical conclusion of Christianity is that the best life a human can live is to emulate Christ. This means living completely selflessly, spending all your time preaching, praying and caring for the poor, even being willing to give your life for God or other people. Now, it's clear that no human can live like this perfectly, and Christians agree on the point that no one will ever live a life as good as Christ, and that it isn't necessary for salvation, but it is clearly the goal nontheless, and many saints throught history approximate what Christ teaches to a high degree.

This begs the question, would you dear Christian argue that a person who ends up revolutionizing science or improving the world in some mayor way, say Isaac Newton, should instead have dedicated his life to caring for the poor and evangelizing? It seems to be what Christianity teaches. Of course one can be a good Christian and be a scientist or philosopher, or have (almost) any other profession for that matter, but according to Christian doctrine it seems like living a life completely dedicated to God and others is prefered.
>But Newton was Christian
He was a non-trinitarian, but that's also besides the point.

    Translating the Tablets of Thoth (I didnt even need a copy, its inherent to the world.) (But still liked hearing others translations, used to listen to them as I went to sleep.)

    (I lied, I actually translated it from Art of War, learned 8-Dimensional conceptualization.)

    Im too insane for humans.

    He was also an occultist who studies pagan theology. He was a terrible Christian. In fact the story of the apple falling may be an allegory about Satanism. As an alchemist he probably looked at finding eternal life without Christ.

    Oh, and IQfy's Tooker's book Time Travelers Interpretation to the Bible was lit.

    He noticed something I dont anyone else (that isnt legit Schizo) noticed, that the words "God, Holy Spirit and Lord" are 2 individuals.

    They share the name God.

    You would only notice that from deep, sublt, context of those words throughout the Bible. HYPER META.

    Says who? No part in the bible states you have to give your life like Jesus. The whole point of his sacrifice was that he did it so we didn't have to.

      You don't think living like Christ is the ideal?
      >No part in the bible states you have to give your life like Jesus.
      Read the whole post, I literally said Christians don't have to live like that to be saved.

        No, because the life of Christ had a very specific purpose and path laid out before him before he was even born. He was born as a sacrificial lamb.
        To state that people should completely emulate Christ denies people their purpose.
        You're supposed to follow his teachings, but devoting your life to being a protector will fit God's plan better than spending your life being a preacher and leave the preaching to the preachers. God would not want every man to be a priest

          How is this not saying the ideal is a saintly life?

            That's Jesus speaking to a very specific crowd, one who is going to follow him and spread his teachings.

          Jesus was speaking directly to me.

          "No matter how good of a person you are they will still kill you so no matter how hard you hit back you are already forgoven for they are objectively evil."

          I heard, I listened.
