The last time I checked, there were as many unscrupulous athiests and non believers as there were supposed believers. The fact is that any group,
affilliation, race, clich, business, etc. has both good and bad people.
Also, if believers in a faith are pretending to be happy, and non-believers are truly happy? Why do many non-believers sound so jaded, cold, and
unhappy. Look at the tone of this very thread...surely not enough optimism and happy here to make me want to be like OP.
Lastly, how are you freer by not believeing in God?
I have read this so many times here...As a Christian, I am a slave...I am being controlled or manipulated...How? I live like I want. I have the
lifestyle I want. I do the things that I want. I have a good life, I am married, I have a job, have 4 happy, successful children....they are
Christians and doing well with jobs, traveling, college.
We help people...people in our church, community, and complete strangers. We have provided money, food, meals, blankets, helped pay bills, have
traveled to Honduras to build a house and teach them how to grow food, my wife istraining as an EMT for medical emergencies on a national level as a
Our church...this monster you refer to has/is/will be raising moneys and donations for tornado victims here in NC...for Katrina victims in
Mississippi... sponsered the trip to Honduras...helped send over 20,000 buckets of food to Haiti... sponsered and supported healthcare workers going
to Iraq... they were subsequently killed while trying to help homeless children there. We give to the local shelters, help with Food Bank of NC,
helped a Women's Shelter and halfway House.
Tell me, as a non-believer...How are you freer than me? What greater deeds are you doing for your fellow man? What joys in life do you possess that I,
as a Christian, lack?
I read many books, am open to may ideas and beliefs, ...wouldn't be here if I didn't..lol, I have friends both
white-black-asian-hispanic-lesbian-gay-church goers-nonbelievers..we have fun, eat, have a few beers, cookout, go crabbin'...I mean really...What am
I as a Christian missing?
Please be specific...No blind obedience to the corrupting influences of the church rant... Tell me, oh great non-believer, How is my life not as free
