Not in the slightest, I do like it when people say I'm going to Hell for not believing in their deity.

I'm not saying people can't discuss it. It's good to discuss it. It's when people lose respect of the subject that problems arise. People often bring in insults to religious discussion. On this very site I've been called scum for being a Christian. That is what I don't like. Just last week somebody made a thread solely for the purpose of religious bashing. It's not about people making fun of people. It's people making fun of my religion. The thing I consider most important to myself. If you knew people were out there making fun of what you hold most dear you wouldn't be happy about it but what can you do about it?


Remember what scripture says:

John 15:18-20(NASB)

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also.

Matthew 5:11-12(NASB)

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

We as followers of Christ should love one another, no matter if the world bashes us or not. How can we be the lighthouse on a hill if we don't show love and charity?


I know of this and I love the world. I do not hate atheists. I welcome them. I am imperfect though and am not without anger.
I wish I could revel more in the insults in hardships but it brings me pain. I am young and shall hopefully grow to be a better Christian as is my prayer.

I'm not saying you are going anywhere, I am not the one who is the judge, I welcome you either way if you are a believer or not.

Why would I believe in God when he's not real?

I didn't say you were like that, but some family members are what I'm mainly targeting.

Ever tried to read any of the Old Testament?


Of course not, I belong to an actual religion. Only atheists talk about Hell and the Old Testament, as if they think either exists.


You need to explain yourself better or you're just wasting your time.


Well, gimme a break, I just spent the LAST THREE pro-athie threads explaining how actual mainstream middle-of-the-road Protestant religions basically ignore all the Begats, Holy Wrath and Philistine-slaying of the politically-skewed OT, except for how they illustrate the NT's point--
And how the only people who even remotely mention it anymore are the ex-Red State athies who want to paint it as their own straw-man arguments, which pretty much makes them the more clueless, outdated and underinformed half of the discussion...

And if I have to explain myself again, I clearly am wasting my time--Are you going to make me go through all that again? Use a search feature, fer cryin', that's why it's there!

And that is why alot of people disregard all sorts of religious people, because of the hate or the "you're going to hell for this or that"

For me, Jesus didn't tell people they were going to hell, he just loved all people regardless.

It doesn't really matter what anyone of us believes. It is what it is. What you see if what you get.

Maybe He's the patient guy waiting for the other assholes (including those who sit around complaining about the other assholes) to finally get the bright idea of how to UN-shit it, by not acting like assholes, and seeing who's motivated enough to pick up on the idea.
And providing some advice for those non-assholes who'd like to, but don't know how.

If atheists tend to sound like spoiled children, maybe their mommies really DID clean up their own rooms for them when they were kids, and expect the same treatment as "adults". Me, I always had to go learn how to straighten up my own.

Hell no. Not when so many terrible things exist and hurt innocent people through no fault of their own. If there is a God, then all I could say about him is that I hope he is enjoying his omnipotence while people in our world suffer for no reason. Oh, but it's all apart of his plan? Yeah, good people and children dying in Africa or in the Middle East just for simply being there, completely necessary for his plan. Someone's son dying due to cancer at six years old, yeah I'm sure that had to happen for some reason.

Hey, God, you want to do something about some of your crazy followers? Tell them to follow your whole book (that was written 100% by men) and all of its rules. Yeah, all of them, not just the ones they pick out that are convenient for them. That, or tell them they were just stories. Do you want to do anything about our religious representatives that discriminate against some your people for no reason other than being who they are? Want to give the slightest crap about children who aren't in first world countries?

Sorry for the rant.
