Christian Logic

This is part of Psalms 111:10. It is not taken out of context or anything.

God loves you, and at the same time wants you to FEAR him, or else he’ll cast you into the pits of Hell? What kind of dysfunctional logic is this?

    The cool thing about (MOST) Christians is that they generally understand that faith is something close to your heart and not something to be ridiculed or discussed openly. Obviously there are exceptions.

    But almost ALL atheists are like you. Dude, we get it. You’re not going to convince the people of whom religion has helped get through tough parts of their life. Just shut the fuck up already.

    I think you’re a little confused Bodero.

    @Bodero: You only think “ALL atheists” are like him, because you only know about atheists who are outspoken. (I fit the bill too. That’s something I will admit up front.) There are plenty of atheists who are quite about their non-belief. I, on the other hand, appriecate all of his posts that point out the absurdity in religious statements such as the one in this post. It’s one of the reasons I keep coming back here. That and the naked girls with guns. Incidentally, I know this might be perceived as a cheap shot or me being a grammar-nazi, so… Read more »

    Meh, typos. In the above comment, “quite” should be “quiet”.

    That’s not even close to being the biggest the hole in Christian logic. Think about this: according to the Bible the afterlife is either burning in a lake of fire or eternal choir practice, but only one of those is considered punishment! How wacky is that?

    1 Corinthians 1:18

    For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

    Why don’t you guys, before trying to look intellectual and ingenious, do a little research on the meaning of the passage like an intellectual and ingenious Atheist would? It is not hard, just Google it, O.K. pumpkin?

    Atheists rule. Anyone who says otherwise is religionist. Take the series of people who go around WoW trying to convert people. Who will follow you everywhere around the map saying ‘If you say you love Jesus, then I’ll stop following you!’ every 10 seconds. The moment the one person being followed says something even mildly anti-christian, ‘e.g. Go away you nut, I’m buddhist’ gets kicked by mods under the ruling of ‘not respecting another persons religion’.

    O.K. I am a Christian and I have to admit those guys are a sad excuse for what a Christian is supposed to be. They and the God-Hates-Fags people are plain retarded. They make us look like a bunch of wackos out of a nut house. They make me want to put a paper bag in my head.

    for what it’s worth, as it was explained to me is that it’s not fear as in being afraid, it’s something more of a respect issue.

    If you’re trying to make a point by quoting a site, it might be wise to make sure the site you’re quoting isn’t a parody/satire. And that’s exactly what landoverbaptist.org is. I’m sure you feel quite silly now.

    As for the whole atheism vs religion thing…

    Arguments of atheism vs religion mostly result in both sides looking like bunch of dicks.

    Carlin said it best:

    “Keep thy religion to thyself.”

    Then of course there’s this little nugget:

    “I contend that we are all atheists. I just believe in one less god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”

    The reason that Christians are supposed to Fear God is so that they have a reason to follow his rules and get to heaven. Christians can’t understand how anybody can be a good person without the FEAR that Magic Man will send you to hell.

    I look at it this way: I don’t need to be afraid of Hell in order to be a good person.

    Pretty much all Christians are a sad excuse for what Christians are supposed to be. As if Christ’s followers don’t even understand what their Bible is saying.

    Furthermore many of the problems of the world are because of fear. If humanity feared less, their would be so much more light in the world. But instead humanity clammers and whines like a bunch of pussies!

    You need to look at a dictionary, fear in this context is respect. Do you fear and or respect high voltage electricity. How about rattlesnakes?? Use a little reason here fear = respect.
