Welcome to another edition of Behind The Scenes. I suspect the next comment is from someone who visits this page regularly. So here's his comment, and here's my reply:
Of course they "can't help" but talk about god when the idea is unceasingly shoved down their subjective little throats. You people are useless. Spend time at a food shelter or something, stop sitting around pretending the voices in your head are divine. Grow up and be a man and forgo this imaginary friend that who's sadistic desires would see you burn in hell for eternity. I wish people like you would maybe read history books or study something productive so we can maybe cure cancer or not lose ground to China and India. No, lets all get into a hyped up hysteria induced coma and and smile as the drug slowly runs through our veins. You lie and pretend to know anything about something allegedly outside of what it is possible to know. You lie to children and yourselves about what is happening in your life. It's sickening. You pretend like no other cultures existed with any sense of right or wrong before Jesus. You pretend like your "perfect bible" makes any sense when your just as quick to pick and choose which passages best suit your needs for the time against any atheist you'd levy such a charge against. You deny thousands of years of scientific understanding, of pure human struggle for understanding, and shit on it when you worship your own mental impediments. It is because of people like you that I have lost any real hope in our species to last indefinitely. You will forever be responsible for perpetuating ideals and lies that clog men's minds and retard progress. I don't care how good believe this crap makes you feel. I don't care how much you believe its real. You are in denial, you need help and its not going to be from an invisible sky daddy.
Why do you think that personal attacks are going to have any effect on me?
Where else but in the realm of persecuting Christianity can one claim that “I don’t see this, therefore it’s false”? Your opinion about anything I write here has no bearing on whether it’s true or not. Do you understand what I’m saying? Stop spewing out these half-baked remarks, and putting words in my mouth, and actually listen to what Christians truly believe. I’m afraid the only exposure you’ve had are the pinatas that the media pundits put up for ridicule. Allow me to set the record straight.
You pretend like no other cultures existed with any sense of right or wrong before Jesus.
This is news to me. I’m fully aware of Hammurabi’s Code that would show that people had a sense of right and wrong way before Jesus showed up in the New Testament.
Where do you think the ideas of right and wrong even came from? Do any other holy books explain the origin of these concepts?
You lie and pretend to know anything about something allegedly outside of what it is possible to know.
How could you possibly know if I’m lying if what I say is truly unknowable?
You pretend like your "perfect bible" makes any sense when your just as quick to pick and choose which passages best suit your needs for the time against any atheist you'd levy such a charge against.
You sound just like the complainers talked about in Luke 7:33-34. You’re not happy with someone just giving you a Bible, and you decry anybody who dares target your accusations with specific scripture. I’m sorry, but you can’t have it both ways.
To sum things up:
Basically you’re calling me blind to some kind of “truth” when I claim to see something you can’t see. You claim I’m lying about something that YOU can’t see, therefore I must be the one that’s wrong. Give me a break.
You won’t actually deal with what I’m saying, instead accusing me of being some short-sighted bigot, and then you fill up my blog with nothing but opinion about what you see in your limited view of Christianity.
I’m sorry you think that we’re slowing people down, but last I checked, I just can’t find any examples of atheists who have moved things along.
The problem here is that you cannot understand spiritual things because you are spiritually dead. The Bible describes this condition. And again, I can’t say this enough--your opinion does not matter when it comes to the truth.
God has made Himself very available. You might say He doesn’t exist, but can you know that for sure, or is that more opinion? Have you even tried looking, or is this just wishful thinking? I just can’t get over how foolish that argument sounds about claiming something isn’t there because you can’t see it, but never checking to see if your eyes are even working properly.
You don’t like the idea of there being a God that will hold you accountable for your life. Every day you live without Jesus is one more day that God’s wrath piles up a little more. I don’t know how you expect to stand up against the Creator of the universe when He hauls out this laundry list of offences that you don’t care about right now. He’s not some angry little kid throwing a temper tantrum. He is the most high Judge you’ll ever face, with a standard of holiness NONE of us can measure up to. There are no other gods to run to, and there is nowhere to hide. He’s the only game in town. He’s God. He is infinitely holy. He doesn’t answer to you. He made you for His glory, not yours. Claiming ignorance will not help since you already know the difference between right and wrong.
So what are you going to do? Are you actually going to do something about how much trouble you’re in, or are you going to risk everything on the dumbest gamble of your entire life?
