religion

What it says on the tin.

when you say stuff like "join me or go to hell" nobody wants to join you nobody believes you, nobody believes in you if you think your god is so good can you be a better person first less judgemental not misogynistic kinder practical more real and grounded

in the end people were drawn to jesus because he really cared not because he threatened hell and brimstone and fire when he alone could have

and by the way the only harsh words jesus used were on religious people who used religion to condemn anybody else

people naturally want to be close to god and your alien sperm bullshit chases them further away

Peyton, Chef of Evil,

I would rather be in hell with Ghandi, than in heaven with the Religious Right.

Bowie, Crusader of Wild Parties,

Anyone from the far religious right will have their errors corrected in heaven.

Ari, Fashion Designer of the Unimaginable Terror,

I AM NOT PART of the Religious Right. If YOU THINK that I am because I believe in the deity of Christ, the blood atonement at the cross, the resurrection of Christ, and salvation by the grace of God, that that lumps me in with the extreme fundamentalist churches you are SO WRONG. But accusing me of being lumped in with them with my current beliefs will NEVER get me to change them EVER. Neither will it change my call to tell churches who deny these basic doctrines of the Christian faith to REPENT. PERIOD. Some things that make me differ from the fundamentalists on the Religious Right. I think that lust is a sin if it is ONLY after a married woman, the Greek and context of Matt 5:27-28 supports that interpretation, one need not be married to righteously have sex, in the Old Testament godly men kept concubines (equivalent in the modern era is a girlfriend), that only some forms of porn are a sin IF they portray things actually LISTED in the bible as sexual sins. I also prefer the Dead Sea Scrolls and Greek Septuagint versions of the Old Testament over the Masoretic text - which includes much of Old Testament in the King James. I also believe the ancient giants were hybrids between fallen angels and human women, some fundamentalists may take this position, but others RABIDLY disagree. I think they are wrong here.

What makes you think Ghandi is in hell? I believe some people may be able to repent and have faith in Christ after death. Ghandi could have had faith immediately after death and avoided hell, or been in hell and is out now, or is there now, but may not be there forever. Oh if the Religious Right heard me say THAT they would have a fit. I don't care. I found some BIBLE VERSES BIBLE VERSES BIBLE VERSES that at least hint at the possibility of repentance after death. SO THERE IT IS.

Ash, Herald of Evil,

Jesus did not condemn Pharisees because of their belief in hell, but rather their hypocrisy and adding thousands of picky rules to the bible. I am of the belief some unsaved people might be able to repent after death, the Pharisees did not believe that. Repentance is a biblical doctrine, I don't care if that bothers you.

Peyton, Chef of Evil,

I condemn modern Christians for their hypocrisy. Voting for pedophiles like Roy Moore and racist, molesters like Donald Trump shows who they really are.

George, Patriarch of the Satisfied,

I agree about Roy Moore, but the allegations against Trump are not proven. He is setting things in motion that will get child traffickers in high places up.

Reggie, Barbarian of the IT department,

Yeah, for using religion to condemn people. That's you, modern day viper

Aubrey, Hero of Space,

ONCE MORE telling people to repent is NOT CONDEMNING THEM. In FACT, telling people that God hates them and WON'T LET THEM REPENT, IS condemning them. Even in cases where some people may have such hard hearts that many may say they are beyond repentance, I am far slower to say that than some other Christians.

Believing in the concept of repentance seems to offend you. I do not care. It is true doctrine, therefore I will change neither my beliefs or posts on the subject.

You said "Jesus used harsh words on religious people" so am I. Many churches have abandoned or de-emphasized the basic doctrines of the bible such as: the deity of Christ, the atonement for sin at the cross, the inspiration of the bible, the inspiration of the bible, the coming resurrection of the dead, the second coming of Christ, the indwelling Holy Spirit in Christians. When these basic doctrines are abandoned or de-emphasized in a church, it is a sign they are becoming apostate and they need to REPENT. PERIOD.

Peyton, Chef of Evil,

Are we supposed to accept it as the truth just because you say it is?

Ash, Herald of Evil,

That is your interpretation, telling apostate Christians to repent us not condemning them. Condemning would be telling people they won't get a chance to repent and are headed for hell or other judgements. There may be some people in a state where can't repent and are headed for hell, but I bet it is a small percent of the global population.

Ash, Herald of Evil,

Genesis 6 is about fallen angels taking human women to produce hybrid giants. If you are offended by that, I am sorry, but not rely because I really believe that to be the correct interpretation of Genesis 6, so I will not apologize for what I think is truth. If you are so offended disprove my interpretation of that passage and others like it in the bible.

I am in no way sorry for telling apostate churches to repent. I do not apologize and intend to say it to a lot more people this year in hopes that those who need to repent.

Peyton, Chef of Evil,

"Genesis 6 is about fallen angels taking human women to produce hybrid giants."

So...where are the fossils?

George, Patriarch of the Satisfied,

All over. A lot of bones were found in Death Valley.

Reggie, Barbarian of the IT department,

There's nothing to prove or disprove when you can't even prove your imaginary friend exists.

Aubrey, Hero of Space,

Ok if you are NOT a Christian, then WHY are you so offended at my hard statements telling apostate churches to REPENT? WHY do you give one rip? If you were a Christian IN an apostate church and LOVED it that way, THEN I would get why you would be offended (and then I could care less about offending you). I have more respect for intellectually honest unbelievers than I do for apostate Christians.

Peyton, Chef of Evil,

Because people like you affect public policy and hold this country back. Trying to teach the Biblical account of creation in science class, as if it is science. I want to give you the benefit of the doubt and call it ignorance, but I think most Christians in the 21st know the difference between the scientific method and a revealed religious belief. Yet you insist of teaching religion in the public schools as fact. If you want a theocracy, why don't you move to one.

Dakota, Sommelier of Generosity,

My harsh words ARE against apostate churches, not aimed at unbelievers.

Dakota, Sommelier of Generosity,

Where have ANY of my posts been mysogynistic? Or are you just lumping me in with the fundamentalists because I take the bible seriously as a Christian who cares about spiritual growth. Jesus DID warn people about hell by the way...chapter and verse on that one. He was often merciful to people in serious sins, because it is the mercy and grace of God that saves FROM HELL. So mix mercy and grace with the concept of hell, the two go together perfectly, because mercy and grace SAVES FROM HELL. If hell did not exist mankind would not need mercy and grace from God to go to heaven or have a broken relationship with God be restored. How does the demons collecting human seed have ANYTHING to do with being out of balance and over-emphasize hell. I hardly talk about hell in most of my posts. In fact very little. People should know that if they are accosted by creatures and have seed collected they should consider a theory that these creatures are not from other planets but the kingdom of darkness. I have read hundreds of reports that people have caused abduction experiences or visitations by these creatures to stop IMMEDIATELY by invoking the name of the Lord against them in a manner used in a very similar fashion to exorcisms. So grey aliens go away with prayers used in exorcisms or deliverances. That is VERY INTERESTING to me.

Reggie, Barbarian of the IT department,

You only have chapter and verse for one and not anything else?

I wonder why I am wasting my time writing to you when I can come up with chapter and verse for some Muslim book or Buddhist teaching too.

Go invent your own religion and you'll be absolutely sure your interpretation is correct.

I thought this was one interesting section when I realise it is only one single person posting a lot of bullshit about one single religion. The rest are just signposts like "Jesus loves you" that says nothing.

It speaks a lot about Christianity.

Edit: Haha I really did waste my time. Assuming you are the same person who posted 8 days ago and then check back every day so that your last post was a day ago, that's really pathetic. No life, right? Nothing better to do with your time.

Aubrey, Hero of Space,

Jesus DOES love people, but to flesh that out, a lot more detail needs to be expressed. Just quick slogans like that are helpful, but should be just a start of a conversation. I am not interested in inventing my own religion at all. I would rather wrestle and struggle with what I believe and fight and pray to discern what I feel is right, and work hard at it to, rather than being so lazy and just assume that everything I have heard or even now believe is 100% right. In fact I would rather get to heaven and be corrected THEN on some things. I do think a lot I things I believe right now are right, but to say I know everything, or even aspects of things I am right about, I realize my knowledge on those things is imperfect and incomplete. So I have ZERO interest inventing my own religion. In fact the biggest objection I have to Muslim and Buddhist beliefs is that they do not believe that Christ is the Messiah and God incarnate, otherwise a lot of things they hold to I find to be useful and true. Some Muslims are strict with rules I believe that God never commanded, so I object to that too, but otherwise I find some things in other religions to be good and accurate.

Lexus, Elementalist of the Homeless,

How does talking about nefarious plans of the devil mean that I think people need to convert or burn. In fact God desires to protect humans. I do think trust in Christ is needed a to go to heaven, but it is to join Christ, not me. I do think some may be able to repent after death too, some bible verses hint at that.
