religion against religion to prove it false.
Its amazing how this is done a consistent basis, but the religious people just close their eyes and ears and reject it.
For example, point out to any "normal" American Christian the hypocrisy of what he believes (fighting wars, the hate for the poor in this country,
the love of material goods which is basically idolatry, all anti-Christian ideals) and they will actually argue with you about it why they are right.
Never, have I seen one, say "Yknow, youre right...Jesus was the Prince of Peace, would he have wanted me to shoot a Muslim, or to turn the other
They will fight and argue and scream and complain and say that you hate their beliefs and are an intolerant liberal, which is just hilariously
anti-Christian in so many ways, the irony never fails to amuse me. But never once have I seen them actually change their mind.
It is easy to point out the hypocrisy of humans and their religious moral codes that in this country are basically window dressings only, but it is
just as easy for the hypocrites to start screaming how all they need is their faith. I guess it matters not to them where that faith is placed.
Are you kidding me? I guess when you say "normal American Christian" it's true.. but that's not what Christianity is about. If you actually talked
to a Christian and he actually said that, he isn't a Christian. YOU understand our beliefs better than.. well most Christians.
I'm a sinner. I'm a thief. I'm a liar. I'm an adultery. I'm a murderer. I'm a slanderer. I'm a drunkard. I'm a sloth. I have anger. I have
vengeance. I have greed. I have envy. I have PRIDE. I'm a hypocrite.
I also believe in God. I love everyone, even those who hate me. I pray for them, most of all. Why? Because I don't deserve anything. I don't deserve
my family. I don't deserve my girlfriend. I don't deserve to live. Yet I do have all these things.. why? Obviously not Karma. I think it's because
I'm actually trying to change. I no longer "practice" sin. I actually get conviction. I now do things that I never would have done before - I love
people. I serve them. I care for them. I help them. Is that for my own self-gratification? No, why would I? It's impossible for me to love people who
spit in my face, to hate me.. but God can. And since he's living inside of me, he shows his love to the people I connect with.
I don't hate gays, I don't hate Muslims, I don't hate atheists.. I never use the word "test of faith" when arguing about sciences. I'm an
evidence-based reasoning type of guy. I don't own many materialistic things, so don't argue that I'm living a wealthy lifestyle. I don't even go
to Church anymore, at least not the "building" church. I also believe in the Bible 100%, I don't match scripture with opinion, but scripture with
Yet people still mock me, and I love them, because Jesus loves them, and because I was just like them, before I found God.
